What You Need to Know About Ralph Lauren’s New CEO


When news broke that Ralph Lauren was stepping down as CEO of his global brand, plenty of hearts were broken and left to ponder what was next for the media mogul. The brand is going to be in good hands with new CEO Stefan Larsson. The 40-year-old may not be a household name like his predecessor, but he’s pretty legendary within the fashion industry. Not only is Larsson largely responsible for building H&M into the fast-fashion behemoth it is today, he also transformed Old Navy into a more profitable endeavor than its parent company, Gap — raking in almost as much as both Gap and Banana Republic combined in 2014. Needless to say, if his past experience is any indicator, Larsson is the right man to turn Ralph Lauren’s stagnant earnings around.

Sneaker Politics & New Balance ‘Case 999’

SP 02

Boston-based New Balance and premier sneaker and apparel boutique, Sneaker Politics, have joined forces for the release of the limited edition Sneaker Politics x New Balance “Case 999.” Inspired by police detectives and the cases they investigate, the style will launch exclusively at Sneaker Politics locations and beginning September 26.

Inspired by unsolved crimes in Louisiana and the Detectives who work on the investigations, the “Case 999” is an ode to these  who work day and night for years on cases that are never solved. The style draws inspiration from their unique dress – a navy blue police coat, red oxford button up, paisley tie, and leather dress shoes, that easily differentiate them from other police officers. The upper is done in navy and tan pig-suede with pig leather linings. Hits of burgundy, a paisley print on the tongue, gum rubber outsole and pinstripe insole liner are unique details that make the “Case 999” shine.

Burberry and Apple Partner on Bespoke Branded Music Channel


Apple is partnering with UK fashion retailer Burberry for the first branded channel on its new Apple Music streaming service, which makes perfect sense for both brands.

While Apple turned to the luxury leather artisans at Hermès to produce its first co-branded Apple Watch collection, it’s turning to Burberry—whose former CEO, Angela Ahrendts, is Apple’s SVP of retail and online stores—to create its first brand-curated bespoke channel on Apple Music.

It’s Burberry, after all, that dared to differentiate its brand by promoting and playing acoustic music at its shows, shirking the trend of EDM/techno-spinning DJs at Saint Laurent and other haute couture houses. Launched five years ago, Burberry Acoustic has been a passion project of Christopher Bailey since 2010.

The New Face of Cycling Designed Around Your Phone


fUCI bicycle project focuses on interfacing between the portable and the rideable. Designer Robert Egger of Specialized Bikes has built bicycles since the late 1980s, and has spent the intervening decades exploring the boundaries in that design space. In an age where hyper-specialized products are not only possible, but profitable, he turned his attention to creating a bicycle that incorporated the power of a smartphone in every possible way.


He started by moving away from the traditional structure of a bicycle, beginning with a windswept, futuristic look. An enlarged rear wheel means less pedaling to maintain momentum once the bike is up to speed, and a combination of friction generator, integral lithium battery and solar cell allow it to power the smartphone that’s at the bike’s heart.

The Compound Restaurant – Santa Fe, New Mexico

by Leslie Long


On my first day at the beautiful La Posada de Santa Fe, I didn’t stray far from the hotel grounds. A blood orange margarita and lobster studded guacamole welcomed me to the hotel’s gorgeous patio where we decompressed from early flights under the bluer-than-blue sky.

The next day, we were craving art so headed toward the galleries on Canyon Road. Having asked for a lunch recommendation, the same name kept coming up: The Compound. I think I have pretty good restaurant radar and I loved this place before even stepping foot inside.

The Woman in the Viral NYC Catcalling Video Is Suing Its Creators

The video may have helped raise awareness of the catcalling issues women face all over the world, but according to TMZ the star of it, Shoshana Roberts, is suing anti-street harassment group Hollaback! for $500,000 due to the rape threats, death threats, and online abuse she’s received since it was released.

Roberts was found through a Craigslist advert and was allegedly only paid $200 for her work, despite the fact that the nonprofit received donations and ad revenue.

“It’s frustrating when the nonprofit gets donations, and the director gets ad revenue, and I get people wanting to slit my throat,” she said, adding that the company violated her civil rights by creating and releasing videos containing “creative content, performance, image, likeness and persona for the purposes of advertising or trade without her prior written consent.” Google has also been brought into the despite for using the clip without her permission and/or parodying the video.
