In case you missed it: Interview Magazine folds, Chris Hemsworth and Joseph Schooling in Singapore for BOSS, Comme des Garçons has a new line
Fashion by the 'gram
In our new bi-monthly round-up, we bring you the latest happenings in the fashion sphere — bite-sized, and told through Instagrams
1. Joseph Schooling, Chris Hemsworth and Sebastian Stan came to Singapore for BOSS Barricades, fans by the dozens, sharp suits all round. Check, check and check at the BOSS FW18 fashion show and store re-opening on Friday night at Singapore's Marina Bay Sands with avengers Hemsworth and Stan in the frow, and Schooling closing the runway show.
3. Virgil Abloh's Nike "UNC" AJ1 dropped with no warning There's no frenzy like sneaker frenzy. Especially when a much-anticipated release happens out of nowhere with no raffle and no warning. Nike quietly launched Virgil Abloh's version of their AJ1 on the SNKRS app on 24 May, making loyal sneakerheads who check the app religiously before morning coffee, very happy. Those who don't, not so much.
4. Andy Warhol's Interview Magazine is folding Founded in 1969, Interview Magazine is filing for bankruptcy and shutting after 49 years. With personalities and creatives the world over sharing tributes on Instagram, we leave you one by Kaws' Brian Donnelly.
5. Comme des Garçons launched a new CDG line The beacon of cerebral fashion it seems, is impartial to logomania and its propensity for sky-high sales. Comme des Garçons' new line CDG — now available at Dover Street Market (Singapore included) — is well, all about the 'CDG'.
6. Nike has candles in the shape of its iconic sneaker models Didn't manage to cop Virgil Abloh's Nike AJ1 due to the aforementioned surprise release? Well, collectible sneaker-shaped candles aren't too shabby either. In collaboration with Highsnobiety, the lifestyle giant is giving you a chance to win — and burn — their Uptempo, AJ1 and Air Max 1 models and more — respectfully, of course.
7. Irene Kim's label hops on the PVC wagon with announcement of transparent totes to come Searching high and low for one of those transparent totes? Short of snagging one from Céline, model-personality Irene Kim's brand, Irene Is Good Label, will be launching a series of see-through totes soon. PSA, below.
