                Since announced in August, the fashion world had been locked with anticipation in regards to Alexander Wang’s newest collaboration with Adidas. After wowing the crowd with his S/S line Wang transitioned the attention towards a cryptic film teasing the collaborative collection.  The campaign imagery was shot by Juergen Teller; starring Rocco Ritchie, Madonna and Guy Ritchie’s 16-year-old son. Immediately following the short film, the former Balenciaga designer debuted the Adidas collaboration featuring 70+ models including pop icons Madonna and Nicki Minaj as well as on the rise model Kendall Jenner would work their way down the runway wearing black track suits covered with upside-down Adidas trefoil symbols which in turn blew the crowd away. The unisex collection featured athleisure looks featuring cotton pullovers and board short style pants. Staying in touch with modern trends, oversized garments were also in attendance. It was, as Wang himself had said, “the biggest show we’ve ever done.”


                When asked about the choice to feature the iconic Adidas emblem upside down on all garments by Vogue, Wang said “Originals is such an iconic brand, with instantly recognizable symbols and trademarks. It’s both grounded in heritage and also completely modern.”With this collection, the idea was to take the codes and iconography of the Adidas Originals brand and look at what their symbols mean and turn them on their head, to invert what’s on the surface and add a layer of subversion; also to toy with the idea of what’s authentic and what’s fake, and how a certain setting can change perception entirely.” With Alexander Wang succeeding in court and as a result winning 90 million dollars from over 45 defendants who had been operating hundreds of sites dedicated to selling Alexander Wang knockoff merchandise, many believe the upside down trefoil symbol is in homage to the latest controversy. In addition to the upside down logo, Wang used an image of the email pertaining to copyright infringement & cease and desist as a graphic on the back of the tee designs.


               For Adidas, the company has been thriving on working with artists such as Pharrell Williams, Rick Owens and Yohji Yamamoto, so to work with Alexander Wang is practically a given. “I’ve been a fan for a long time, this connection he has with culture and New York and breaking down boundaries,” said Nic Galway, vice president of design for Adidas Originals, who began exploring a partnership with Wang the day after attending the designer’s 10th anniversary runway show last September.


               As for Wang, this was his chance to indulge in his passion of sneakers. “I grew up on sneakers,“ he said. "It’s a very interesting time obviously for sportswear, the whole market and how people utilize fitness, incorporate it into their daily uniform. So the sneaker is something that I’ve always been very close to. And it’s always been something that’s very hard for us to do in house, to be honest — obviously Adidas has the most innovative resources.”


                On September 15th Adidas x Alexander Wang branded trucks packed with the first nine styles released of the 84-piece collection set up shop in New York City while the London and Tokyo drop were set up September 17th for distribution. The integrated pop-up launch concept was thought up by creative director Ferdinando Verderi, as the truck sale represents “a rejection of traditional retail and is inspired by subverting the boundaries between fashion and streetwear and overturning commonly accepted rules”. The pop-up trucks held the limited capsule from Adidas Originals and Alexander Wang, The limited launch included Tees, hoodies, sweatshirts, athletic shorts, a skate shoe and more. The tees, Sweatshirts and hoodies are graced with the graphic appliqué, while the sportswear silhouettes will feature a co-branded monogram with an inside-out stitching of Adidas’s iconic Three Stripes. The pop-up exclusive black colorway of Alexander Wang’s skate shoe notes a needle punched upside down trefoil, herringbone structured foxing tape sole, and Italian suede upper with one-piece overlay construction.


                By 3 a.m., just hours after Wang’s collection was announced sneaker collectors and fans of the designer alike began lining up for a secure purchase. By noon, the line had stretched almost two blocks, from Canal and Mercer to Mercer and Grand. Promptly at 12, helpers of Wang x Adidas jumped into the back of the truck, started pulling out merchandise for sale, placing them into black trash bags tied with a white Alexander Wang bow, clearly a nod to the infamous Canal Street vendors.

I was called a dyke today and that was fun

Selena became very popular with Tejano music fans, and at the 1987 Tejano Music Awards, she won both “Best Female Vocalist of the Year” and “Performer of the Year.” Her 1990 album, Ven Conmigo, was the first Tejano record to achieve gold record status, meaning it sold more than 500,000 copies. Soon after Live’s release, Selena went to work on an English-language album that she hoped would put her on the top of the U.S. pop music charts. Unfortunately, she did not live to see its success. Selena died on March 31, 1995, in Corpus Christi, Texas, after being shot by Yolanda Saldivar, the founder of the Selena fan club. Saldivar had been managing Selena’s boutique in San Antonio, and was about to be fired for embezzling money. Selena’s murder sent shockwaves through the Latino community, and her fans around the world mourned the singer’s passing.

anonymous asked:

(Honestly I love your blog sooo much! The imagines are really enjoyable to read :D) Anyway, how will STARISH and Quartet Night react to their s/o wearing their shirt?

Natsuki - “You look a lot cuter in that than I do,” Natsuki confessed, his eyes glowing when he saw them wearing his shirt. He squished his cheeks, running over to trap them in a bear hug. The guy was hardly able to contain all of his emotions at once, especially when it’s the person he’s most affectionate with.

Tokiya - He’s rendered partially speechless, bursting into a fit of coughing towards his hand. “You enjoy going through my things don’t you,” Tokiya finally sighed, his fingers caressing their cheek. “It looks good on you,” he shyly grins.

Cecil - He tilts his head in curiosity. “A scandalous outfit,” he snickers, swirling around them in a circle. He comes to a stop in front of them, hand rubbing his chin. “This is for me and only me to see, isn’t it? I think I might want to see it more often,” Cecil admits with a coy smile.

Ren - “Gorgeous as usual,” he smirks from the opposite side of the bedroom, sitting contently in his seat. “Though my shirt is a bit big on you, right? That’s okay, it gives off the illusion you’re wearing nothing underneath for me,” Ren chuckles, his fingers gesturing at his partner to come over.

Ittoki - He covers his eyes, only to try staring through the gaps between his fingers. Realizing how silly he looks, he lowers them to unveal his flustered face. “You’re–That’s–” Otoya searches for the proper words, but the concept of language left his mind. In place of speech, he hugs them to prevent his eyes from surveying their body any further, though it proves unhelpful when he notices the shirt is somewhat short on them.

Syo - Syo felt his heart skip several beats, but that didn’t bother him. “Are you really trying this hard to impress the great me?” he managed to stutter out. As much as he tried to maintain his confidence, he could hardly look his lover in the eye when they closed the distance gap. 

Hijirikawa - “What are you doing?” Masato cries aloud, his eyes widened. He watches his significant other prance about in his shirt, a hand flying to his mouth to cover the portions of his cheeks blushing. He felt like a character in an anime, an excessive amount of blood rushing to his nose, ready to gush out.

Ranmaru - “What have I told you about going through my stuff?” Ranmaru mutters, picking up the scattered clothes his lover left on the floor in their quest to find his T-shirts. His eyes sweep over their body before turning back to the floor. “Not bad,” he mutters to himself, holding onto the visual image.

Reiji - “You look like a little kid trying on their parent’s clothes,” Reiji laughs, ruffling his partner’s hair. He chuckles more upon their reaction, which consisted of furrowed eyebrows and puffed-out cheeks. “Would you rather I say you look like a clothed Madonna that I’d like to strip? I do have easier access since it’s so loose,” he whispers, slipping a hand beneath the flowing cloth.

AI - “Why are you wearing my clothes? Did you not do your laundry?” Mikaze muses, looking at his partner with a bewildered expression. They have to explain that it’s a rising cute couple trend, to which he provides little understanding. “But then if you wear my stuff, I’ll run out of things to wear. No offense, but I have no intention of wearing your blouses.”

Camus - “Aren’t you a bit cold in that?” Camus questions, embracing his partner from behind. He’s infatuated with the idea of his lover wearing a shirt of is, since their smaller stature made it adorable on their figure. “You can still wear it, but that would mean I have to hold onto you longer so no one else can see,” he teases, resting his chin on their shoulder.
