A brand to change all men’s looks for the fall!
Two ex-Nike entrepreneurs launch a brand that’s one part style, one part badass. From wingtips and blazers to exclusive content and inspiration, Wildfang aims to bring out the best in you by serving both your tomboy style and tomboy spirit, 24/7/365.
Although Wildfang can be literally translated from German to “tomboy,” the word carries a slew of connotations—wild child, rascal, animal caught in the wild—that further prove “tomboy” is more than just a style, it’s an attitude!
The tomboy trend has gained incredible momentum of late, exemplified by Yves Saint Laurent’s decision to tap female model Saskia de Brauw as the face of their spring/summer 2013 menswear collection.
This emerging fashion startup Wildfang exploded onto the scene with a launch video featuring Kate Moennig (TV Star, The L Word), Megan Rapinoe (U.S. Soccer star/Olympic Gold Medalist), Hannah Blilie (drummer, The Gossip), Laurel Pantin (Assistant Shopping Editor, Glamour) and Nadia Sarwar (popular fashion blogger, Froufrouu). Together these dynamic women are helping to launch what the brand is dubbing “the world’s first home for tomboys.”

For Jimmy Choo’s 2013-2014 Fall/Winter campaign will star the lovely Nicole Kidman. “I’ve always loved fashion and often use it as a way to get into character. There is a lot of complexity, mystery, and femininity to the Jimmy Choo Woman.” Now that Kidman is the newest face, she will get the chance to show her version of the ideal Jimmy Choo woman. Kidman is such a mature and poised individual, and this campaign is absolutely perfect for her.
Jimmy Choo’s creative director, Sandra Choi shared, “Nicole is one of the finest actresses in the world, who I knew could convey the empowered glamour of the brand. But she is also nuanced and refined; she brings an attitude of defiance, strength, sensuality, and elegance.” I cannot wait to see the photographs that Kidman will grace us with. The world will get its first preview of the campaign this August, and will be shot by photographer, Mikael Jansson.

Kendrick Lamar performs in Hood By Air at the VEVO Digital Content NewFronts at Roseland Ballroom on May 2, 2013 in New York City. Lamar performed a surprise set of his hits including “Backstreet Freestyle”, “Poetic Justice, and “B*tch Don’t Kill My Vibe” for a small audience in Brooklyn last night. The Hood By Air t-shirt is an exclusive to Soho boutique VFILES and the Hood By Air leather pant is from the FW13 runway collection, select pieces of which will be available for sale at Colette.
The NY label Hood By Air will be making a debut on the west coast this month on May 18th with the opening of a month long pop up shop on Melrose in Los Angeles sponsored by Scion’s A/V initiative that supports young talents across the music and art industries. The Scion A/V Hood By Air pop up exhibition, entitled “MORPH,” will serve as the debut of a capsule luggage concept collection and feature three silicone art objects inspired by hiking luggage, tattooed skin and jewelry piercings as the focal point for the exhibit. On May 18th the Scion A/V Installation space will be transformed into a space reminiscent of a high school locker-room wherein the limited edition products will be sold for the duration of four weeks. Scion A/V has partnered with Hood By Air to produce an entire inventory of limited edition Hood By Air items that will sell within the space, including but not limited to the coveted Hood By Air Classics t-shirt collection in never before seen color-ways, backpacks, posters, water bottles, Emory boards, small accessories and more.
We all have parts of ourselves that we don’t like. Women in particular can always find something that can be changed about themselves, whether it’s for their thighs to be smaller, their boobs to be bigger, or their nose to be straighter. We can all look in the mirror and be critical, no matter how confident we are.
Dove, a company famous for creating videos that boost self-love instead of self-dislike, launched a new video pointing out this fatal flaw of being over-critical.
They commissioned a forensic sketch artist to draw women’s faces based off of their descriptions of themselves and then a second sketch according to a person that had observed them during the project. At the end of the video, you see both sketches side by side, the ones on the left being the critical “self-portraits” and the ones on the right being those that were dictated by the person that had observed the women. The forensic artist did not see any of the women’s faces until the end of the project.
The difference between left and right is outrageous- the sketches look like two different people. The one on the left usually being less attractive and almost angry or depressed as compared to the confident looking beautiful woman on the right.
The artist asks: “Do you think you are more beautiful then you say?” And even though it’s directed to the woman in the video, it is truly a question that we should all ask ourselves. And I could look into the mirror and say “Well, I have a bump in my nose and people have asked me if I’ve broken it but I never have. I really don’t like it at all.” Or I could say “I have my great-grandmother’s nose. And I love that a part of her is a part of me.”
This video encourages you to be kind to yourself. And to love everything that makes you who you are, because at the end of the day, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. And if we behold our true beauty, then there really isn’t anything to dislike is there?

The pieces will be available at H&M this coming May so don’t miss out on your chance for some Bey approved apparel!
Following the footsteps of Tom Felton, Rupert Grint, Michelle Williams, and Andrew Garfield, Band of Outsiders has recently cast dapper Frank Ocean of Odd Future, for their famous Polaroid Spring ’13 Campaign. Band of Outsiders’ signature high saturated polaroids take Ocean on a DTLA adventure from the Times building in the heart of LA to yellow tiled bathrooms.
