SNOOP DOGG IS THE NEW FACE OF G-STAR RAW

Fashion Snoop Dogg and G-Star RAW ‘Say it Witcha Booty’ in tongue-in-cheek global campaign.   Dutch denim brand G-Star RAW announces today their latest worldwide ‘Hardcore Denim’ campaign with icon Snoop Dogg. Helmed by a custom-made version of the soundtrack single ‘Say it Witcha Booty’, by the multi-platinum artist.     Snoop needs no introduction – he’s a living legend and a globally recognized innovator, simultaneously iconic and accessible, just like denim. G-Star RAW has a long tradition of working with “true originals'' like Snoop, authentic and exceptional people who are one-of-a-kind and true masters of their craft.     The campaign merges G-Star’s Hardcore Denim philosophy with Snoop’s signature blend of humor, style and backside appreciation. The collaboration is brought to life by a video that is creatively celebrating denim booties, featuring men, women, islands, hot air balloons and yes...even dogs.     Gwenda Van Vliet - CMO G-Star RAW:“Snoop Dogg is a true Original: best in class, real and outspoken. He is continuously re- inventing himself and he merges worlds in unexpected ways. Our joint campaign is bringing that philosophy to life, and is a tongue-in-cheek tribute to all denim booties.”     Snoop Dogg: “I’m teaming up with G-Star, because we are both pushing the field, staying ahead, cutting the edge. We are both masters of our craft – leading the game. You know what I’m saying? We look ahead.”     The G-Star RAW ‘Say it Witcha Booty’ campaign in collaboration with Snoop Dogg debuts on September 8th, 2021 supported by outdoor and online activations.     For more information on the ‘Say it Witcha Booty’ campaign, visit: www.gstarraw.com Snoop Dogg and G-Star RAW ‘Say it Witcha Booty’ in tongue-in-cheek global campaign.   Dutch denim brand G-Star RAW announces today their latest worldwide ‘Hardcore Denim’ campaign with icon Snoop Dogg.

Casablanca & New Balance present their new collaboration

Accessories Following the global success of the Casablanca & New Balance 327; the brands first collaboration we see the relationship continue to progress forward in the form of the highly anticipated XC-72 model.     Having its first debut during Casablanca’s AW21 film “Grand Prix,” the brand gave its first glimpse and setthe scene for the radical new design direction of the XC-72. These colorways were inspired by world class luxury car design, reminiscent of the rows of exotic cars seen decorating Monaco’s winding roads.     “From when we first started working on the collaboration, we dubbed it the “sports car for your feet” asit evokes that feeling of when you first saw a luxury car as a child, you knew it was a car.. but it was different to any car you’d seen before, it’s a feeling, a sense of wonder, designed to perform, designed to be special.”- Charaf Tajer & Steve Grimes, Casablanca’s Creative Director & Art Director     The XC-72’s sleek body shape, sat on top of the unique split sole unit, creates a new revelation for New Balance design, 3 separate outsole tread patterns, inspired by heritage New Balance models, come together to create a progressively new aesthetic inspired by the past.     Initially being offered in 2 distinct color-ways: the orange & green combined with tonal white and grey accents is a direct reference and homage to the brands already iconic initial sneaker launch. The second sees a bold combination of red and yellow contrasted against white and black accents, the colors further inspire a connection to luxury sports cars, the black outsole unit reminiscent of racing tires.     The limited-edition collaboration, will launch on Casablanca and New Balance’s sites, and selectedretailers globally, and will undoubtedly be a prized collector’s item.

Scotch & Soda presents the new Winter 2021 campaign

Scotch & Soda presents the new Winter 2021 campaign

Fashion Winter 2021 projects an effortless confidence inspired by trailblazing aviator Amelia Earhart. An icon who pushed boundaries in all senses in her life and style, her fearlessness and modern spirit are mirrored in bold designs which evolve Scotch & Soda’s signature play on the expected and unexpected.     Outerwear that combines form and function dominate, influenced by the bomber jackets Earhart wears in flight and the practicality that grounds her. A hybrid jacket is constructed with double layers; a cotton-twill parka surprises by reversing into high-shine satin; and a quilted poncho comes oversized for statement layering. All three are water-repellent and padded with REPREVE®, bringing unique functionality to the wardrobe.     Utility suits in various guises nod to Earhart’s iconic look, which daringly borrows from menswear. A navy twill jumpsuit is a more literal interpretation; blazers and cargo pants provide a tailored spin. Suiting is further explored in denim shirting and jeans that take on the appearance of flight overalls, offering a contemporary view on uniform dressing. D-ring straps, pocketing, epaulettes, and draw-cord details further the utilitarian feel.     “No borders, just horizons, only freedom” and “The most effective way to do it, is to do it” – personal quotes from Earhart – inspire the collection with their sense of freedom and pragmatism, and can be found on jackets and shirts. Prints rooted in exploration and nature energise the neutral palette. Clouds, suns and mountain panoramas playfully semaphore a surreal view of the world from above, lending escapism; graphic jacquards in abstract camo ring patterns recall elevation maps; and golden dials which evoke the points of a compass.     A feeling of ease defines the collection, reflective of the demand for comfort now. This filters down to everything from relaxed workwear to exaggerated denim cuts, such as the Vert jeans in Italian organic cotton selvedge, a new addition to the core fits. The genderless teddy housecoat and checked wool-blend overshirt and trackpants represent the more laid-back side, offering new perspectives on loungewear that’s smart enough for outdoors.     Occasionwear translates Earhart’s confident mix of the masculine and feminine, such as the floral jacquard trousers and fil coupé dress shirt in metallic green pattern. Versatile pieces that cross day and night are key, like the velvet suit which consists of a purple blazer and colourful printed trousers that can be matched or mixed with everyday essentials.     Footwear is executed with a functional edge, including the hiker-style suede Avion and the Mafei, a reinterpreted gumboot in suede with practical rubber soles. Anew capsule of small leather accessories completes the collection, encompassing wallets, cardholders, and laptop cases in smooth and grained leather.   Winter 2021 projects an effortless confidence inspired by trailblazing aviator Amelia Earhart.

In conversation with Col3trane

In conversation with Col3trane

Music One of our new digital cover starts is talented musician Col3trane. Our music editor Joiah had a pleasure speaking with him about his career and new music.       You're a young talent of just 22 years old already making big steps in the industry and carving out your own authenticity as an artist. Going back to the beginnings, how were your early stages and what are the things that really shaped you as an artist?   Thank you. I appreciate the kind words. I’m sure there were hundreds of little moments that shaped me as a person and an artist but I think I owe a lot of it to my Mom and my Step-Dad. Since I was a little kid they always tried to expose me to as much art as possible. Whether it was theatre, other performance art, films that other kids my age weren’t necessarily watching, music other kids weren’t listening to etc. At the time I just wanted to be doing what everyone else was doing and like ‘fit in’ how every kid wants to. But I think watching Kubrick films and being dragged to see Shakespeare as a kid really helped me understand how I wanted to tell stories with my music.      In previous interviews you mention that one of your main inspirations are D’angelo, Nas, Michael Jackson and Notorious B.I.G, in your point of view, how do you connect to them? Do you have any particular song of theirs that have made an impact in your musical journey?   I listen to Voodoo by D’angelo and I wanna know what Questlove and Pino Palladino were eating for breakfast. That album sounds like it was made on Pluto. The musicianship… the grooves.. the harmony. To me it’s as close to the perfect album as I’ve ever heard. Same with Illmatic by Nas or Bad or Off the Wall by MJ. I just love albums and I love being immersed in an artists world and all of these albums mentioned are timeless for a reason. I wanna achieve that in my lifetime.       Your project Tsarina gain a lot of attention on Spotify alongside BOOT ( Breathing Out Of Time). How was the creative process for both and how did you approach both productions?   Me & Jmoon made most of Tsarina in studio in Shoreditch in London and finished it at his Mom’s house in Hastings on the south coast of England. Sleeping on the floor and shit like that. We were both like 17/18 and had no idea what we were doing but we just trusted our ability and our taste and made something that I’m blessed to say I’m still really proud of. BOOT was a totally different experience. I had just been signed to a major label and was flying all around the world meeting all these different people and having to deal with a million different inputs. That’s why in my opinion it sounds a bit confused, because I was confused as shit and It was a confusing time. I love those songs as well don’t get it twisted, but the process was very difficult for me and I think you can feel it in the project which is a shame. But we live and learn.      What inspired you to start your label and name it Trane Of Thought?   I wanted it to play off my name… and I just be thinking like crazy. Deep and over thinking. Too much sometimes. I try to have clear intention and thought behind every creative decision I make. Especially the music. Really that’s what you get from my music. It’s my Trane Of Thought.      What is the core vision of your label? What would you like to accomplish in years time?   Right now, I’m just happy to be independent. Blessed I don’t have to worry about all the things I been worrying about for the past 2/3 years. Labels are great for some people, but for me it was very difficult to navigate. My deal was so complicated and I was working with people at points who had no idea who I even was as a person let alone an artist. So right now I am enjoying this new chapter having built a team of people around me that I love and that support me and my decisions. After this album, who knows what the future holds. I would love to support artists that I believe in… I just need to find the right ones.        Congratulations on your latest song " Feels Like We’re Falling in Love [Californication]". The song emanates summer in all it's facets, from falling in love to vibes of positivity and freedom. What is love for you? How would you describe it in your own words?   Such a cliche but love is individual… Love is different for everyone. To be honest I’m not sure I know what love is but I know what it feels like to fall in love. I wrote this song about a time where I was falling in love and everything felt perfect. I felt untouchable. I think and hope that this song will make people feel the same way when they listen to it. I still smile every time the chorus hits. Shoutout SG as well that’s family.      Photographer: @alexcayleystudio  Stylist: @maher_1 Talent: @col3trane at @communitynewyork Production: @communitynewyork Editor: @timiletonja One of our new digital cover starts is talented musician Col3trane.
