When Louis Vuitton x Supreme’s rumored collaboration went live at the former’s Fall 2017 menswear presentation, hypebeasts the world over lost their goddamn minds. Today, the ultra-buzzy merch line finally hits stores. And by stores, we mean a handful of pop-ups located in Paris, London, Miami, Los Angeles, Tokyo, Beijing, Seoul and Sydney.

Yes, you read that correctly. New York has been spared. Manhattan’s Community Board No. 2 rejected the proposal for a Louis Vuitton x Supreme pop-up at 25 Bond Street. Apparently, the board members weren’t impressed by Supreme’s failure to present any sort of plan for containing the thousands of expected customers. Go figure.

#LVxSupreme The Louis Vuitton pop up stores featuring the Supreme collaboration are now open in Sydney, Seoul, Tokyo, Beijing, Paris, and London. Visit louisvuitton.com for more information.

Yesterday, the brand took to Instagram to announce the locations of the various temp stores. Unsurprisingly, lines began to form immediately.

Prices for the collection range from 195€ for a bag charm to 50,000€ for a custom Louis Vuitton x Supreme Malle Courrier. WWD reports that the pop-ups will continue selling until July 13 or while supplies last. We give it a week — tops.

Jay-Z’s New Album Is One Long Apology to Beyoncé

A post shared by Beyoncé (@beyonce) on

Near midnight on Thursday, Jay-Z — Songwriters Hall of Fame inductee, partner to Beyoncé, father to Blue Ivy and two newborn twins — released his 13th studio album, titled 4:44. Taking a page out of his wife’s playbook, 4:44 is Jay’s most political and most personal work to date. In it, he offers his thoughts on African American identity and — much to the delight of the Beyhive — broaches the subject of marital infidelity. He basically owns up to all those Lemonade accusations (and no, he doesn’t unmask Becky with the good hair).

Like Lemonade, 4:44 is a story of redemption. Jay-Z is taking responsibility for his actions — not parading his conquests. Ahead, we break down some of the most heart-clenching moments from the new album.

On womanizing:

In the title song — which Jay has called “the crux of the album” and “one of the best songs [he’s] ever written” — the rapper flat-out apologizes to Bey. “Look, I apologize / Often womanize / Took for my child to be born / See through a woman’s eyes / Took for these natural twins to believe in miracles / Took me too long for this song / I don’t deserve you,” he raps, later adding, “And if my children knew, I don’t even know what I would do / If they ain’t look at me the same / I would prolly die with all the shame.”

On that Solange elevator incident:

In “Kill Jay-Z,” the Tidal titan references that infamous post-Met Ball elevator incident: “You egged Solange on / Knowin’ all along, all you had to say you was wrong / You almost went Eric Benét / Let the baddest girl in the world get away.” (History lesson: R&B singer Eric Benét was once married to actress Halle Berry, before he cheated and she left.)

On Becky with the good hair:

In “Family Feud,” Jay casts aside “Becky with the good hair” (as in, “He only want me when I’m not there / He better call Becky with the good hair”). Whether “Becky” is code for Rachel Roy, Rita Ora or an amalgam of women, Jay-Z won’t be taking “her” calls anymore: “Yeah, I’ll fuck up a good thing if you let me / Let me alone Becky!”

On miscarriages:

Finally (and perhaps most devastatingly), Jay-Z reveals that Beyoncé suffered several miscarriages before conceiving the twins. He blames himself for her hardships: “I still mourn this death / I apologize for all the stillborns / ‘Cause I wasn’t present your body wouldn’t accept it.”

Thankfully, the Carter-Knowles family has moved past these hard times and is now a daughter, a son and several million dollars richer. We applaud Jay’s honesty and vulnerability. To quote the man himself: “You can’t heal what you never reveal.”

Smart Summer Dresses You Can Legit Wear to Work

There are those who say that dressing within the confines of a strict dress code streamlines your morning routine and encourages creativity. Nine months out of the year, we’d agree with that statement. Then summer hits and all that sartorial optimism flies right out the window. (We can feel it swoosh by as we install our A/Cs.) This time of year, barely-there summer dresses are all we wear — that is, if we deign to put on actual clothing.

Unfortunately, this off-duty dress code doesn’t quite meet business casual standards. Thus, when it comes to dressing for the job that affords us our daily bread, we must compromise. Thankfully, there are many summer dresses that double as work dresses. Frocks that project professionalism and keep us from schvitzing to death during our commute.

We’ve rounded up 15 cute summer work dresses in the slideshow above. All are chic, office-appropriate and, above all, comfortable. Throw ‘em on, accessorize sparingly, save your energy for thermoregulation (and, you know, impressing your boss).

Transgender Beauty Valentina Sampaio Graces ELLE Brazil’s Ethereal July Cover

Valentina Sampaio sent shock waves through the industry when she became the first transgender model to front the cover of Vogue, lending her grace and stunning beauty to Vogue Paris’ electrifying March cover. Prior to that, the Brazilian beauty covered ELLE Brazil in November 2016 and now the magazine welcomes her back for July 2017. Captured by Nicole Heiniger, Valentina is a vision in white Burberry on the light and airy cover.

The cover received immediate attention on our forums. “So simple and beautiful. She really sells me this, such a strong presence from her, right down to her hands. Excellent!” Miss Dalloway approved straight away.

“So beautiful, so very ELLE,” commented kokobombon.

“A real shame the March cover of Vogue Paris did practically nothing for Valentina’s career. Still, it’s nice to see the Brazilian magazines championing their own talent!” vogue28 said.

Tigerrouge shared the same sentiments, stating, “I wish she’d get more work, I think she’s great!”

In agreement over how terrific the cover turned out was Benn98. “What a gorgeous cover, much better than what Vogue Paris did with her. This is Valentina’s second ELLE Brazil cover, and in a way I think they were instrumental in getting her recognized,” he pointed out.

“Pretty! I love the colors of this cover,” admired forum member liaa.

Show the cover some love by dropping us a comment inside the thread here.

Kendall + Kylie Discontinue Controversial T-Shirt Line After Biggie’s Mom Responds

Image: Kendall + Kylie

Image: Kendall + Kylie

Kendall + Kylie’s controversial vintage tee collection is no more. The tops in question featured iconic images of rap and rock legends (among them Tupac, Biggie Smalls, Metallica, Pink Floyd and Ozzy Osbourne) with either the Kendall + Kylie logo or the girls’ own photos superimposed on top. Immediately after the collection went live on Wednesday, critics took to social media to blast the Jenners for attempting to capitalize on legacies they took no part in building.

Among the T-shirts’ more notable critics were Sharon Osbourne (wife to Ozzy) and Violetta Wallace (Biggie’s mother). “Girls, you haven’t earned the right to put your face with musical icons. Stick to what you know…lip gloss,” tweeted Osbourne at 3:09 p.m. Thursday.

Wallace approached the matter from a more legal standpoint. In an Instagram post (that’s since received over 27,300 likes), Wallace pasted a crossed-out picture of the Kendall’s-face-over-Biggie’s-face tee next to the words: “This product has no affiliation to the Notorious B.I.G. estate. The estate was never contacted about using the likeness of Biggie.” 

I am not sure who told @kyliejenner and @kendalljenner that they had the right to do this.  The disrespect of these girls to not even reach out to me or anyone connected to the estate baffles me.  I have no idea why they feel they can exploit the deaths of 2pac and my Son Christopher to sell a t-shirt.  This is disrespectful , disgusting, and exploitation at its worst!!!

A post shared by Voletta Wallace (@volettawallace) on

According to TMZ, the Notorious B.I.G. estate’s lawyer, Julian K. Petty, followed up with a cease and desist letter stating that the estate never gave the Jenners permission to use the rapper’s image, calling the collection “misappropriation at its finest” and threatening to sue if the shirts were not taken off the market by Friday.

By 3:30 p.m. EST on Thursday, the tees had been removed from Kendall-Kylie.com, and all evidence of their existence erased from the brand’s Instagram account. (Of course, by that time, most of the stock had already sold out.)

At 4:43 p.m. EST, both Jenner sisters took to Twitter to publish an identical apology “to anyone that has been upset and/or offended” by the collection, especially the “families of the artists.” In it, they admit that the designs “were not well thought out” and promise to treat T-shirtgate as a learning opportunity. Kylie simply posted a screenshot of the statement; Kendall supplemented hers with a purple heart.

Like we said, 2017: the year of continuing to realize stuff.

30 Cute Sundresses Under $100 (Because Heat Wave)

The sweltering days of summer are upon us. Pants are simply not an option. Still, as functioning members of society, we’re expected to wear clothes. (Life’s tough.) The only reasonable solution is to stock our closets with cute sundresses that come in lightweight fabrics, consist of just the right amount of material (i.e., very little, but not so little that we’re living in constant fear of a wardrobe malfunction) and don’t cling.

Of course, the thing about sundresses is that they can only be worn about 8 to 10 weeks out of the year. Being reasonable human beings and all, we’re not about to fork over hundreds of dollars on clothing that’s got the same shelf life as, say, a carton of almond milk. We like our sundresses like we like our summer days — breezy, relaxed and below 100.

Without further ado, join us in sundress shopping on the cheap. Click through the gallery above for 30 cute sundresses of all persuasions — maxi, plus-size, floral, modest, casual — all for less than $100. When you’re done with that, check out some cheap sandal pairing options.

Kylie Jenner and Quay Australia’s Limited-Edition Sunglasses Only Cost $80

Melbourne-based sunglasses brand Quay Australia — worn by the likes of Cara Delevingne, Gwen Stefani, Gigi Hadid and Beyoncé — is about to enjoy the Kylie Jenner effect.

The eyewear brand has amassed a healthy following thanks to its Insta-worthy frames (like the octagon-shaped Kiss & Tells), quality lenses (100 percent UV protection? yes, please), affordable pricing (most pairs hover around $70) and, last but not least, its cool co-branded capsules (past collaborators include Too Faced Cosmetics and Jasmine Sanders). For its latest limited-edition collection, Quay roped social media sensation Kylie Jenner, who obviously knows a thing or two about collaborative design.

The #QuayxKylie collection will feature four attention-grabbing silhouettes: 2000s-reminiscent shields, narrow cat eyes (à la Adam Selman x Le Specs), sporty aviators and 70s-inspired geometric frames. Taking colorways into account, there will be a total of 11 sunglasses available. We know what you’re thinking. Don’t worry, this is no Rihanna x Dior situation. WWD reports that all four styles will cost between $75 and $80.

Kylie hasn’t posted any pictures of herself rocking the collab yet, although WWD reports that a #QuayxKylie social media campaign is forthcoming. It seems the reality star is still busy promoting her latest Kendall x Kylie sunglasses drop. Conflict of interest much?

it’s an LA ting

A post shared by Kylie (@kyliejenner) on

Stay tuned for photos of the sure-to-sell-out frames, and mark your calendars for July 11 — that’s when the oh-so-affordable sunnies hit quayaustralia.com and various retailers worldwide.

Christian Dior’s Fall 2017 Campaign Features ‘Bored Models’ Wearing ‘Boring Clothes’

Maria Grazia Chiuri can’t catch a break from our opinionated forum members when it comes to showing off her talents at Christian Dior. The creative director’s debut advertising campaign for the iconic French fashion house failed to make a splash for Spring 2017 and Jennifer Lawrence‘s current campaign for the brand was deemed boring. Now, as we take a peek at Dior’s campaign for the upcoming Fall 2017 season, our forums aren’t exactly thrilled. No doubt photographed by Brigitte Lacombe again, Dior switches up the casting by adding models Adwoa Aboah and Jing Wen to pose alongside Ruth Bell, who starred in last season’s campaign with sister May Bell.

Our forum members didn’t hold back their opinions. “Depressing, boring, uninspiring, flat. Nothing’s happening here,” said a disapproving Valentine27 the moment the first campaign image dropped.

“They all look so bored. Why would any woman want to buy Dior with those three staring back at them?” asked a startled mepps.

“Did they literally just shoot this after the show?” RedSmokeRise quizzed.

Sixtdaily agreed, saying, “This is depressing. Are they even trying at this point? They should ask Charlotte Wales to shoot their campaigns, it would be a lot better.”

“In a few seasons, Dior will actually die of boredom. They’re trying real hard to accomplish this,” laughed Vitamine W.

“Literally could fall asleep looking at it. I hate pretty much everything about Chiuri’s Dior, especially these campaigns. They don’t even look like they have tried to make an effort. Awful,” added 333101.

Apple couldn’t have agreed more. “Super happy for Jing and very nice to see Adwoa, however the campaign is terrible. I mean there is nothing going on! The clothes and models look so boring and bored. It’s such a wasted opportunity,” he wrote.

Do you even care to await more? Add your own two cents here.

There Are More Ways to Wear a Bandana Than Ever Before

If the first rule of fashion is that all trends are cyclical, the second is that no classic is too classic to be turned on its ear now and again — assigned to a different body part, given new meaning, deconstructed, embellished with all kinds of whatsits. The humble cotton kerchief is the latest Americana artifact to undergo such a renaissance. As you may have noticed, the rules of how to wear a bandana are [John Wayne voice] changin’.

Ranchers, festivalgoers and protestors value bandanas’ debris-shielding abilities, fashion kids their ability to, as Vogue writer Kristin Anderson puts it, “add chutzpah to the otherwise quotidian.” Plus, the historically paisley-patterned scarves tap into the fashion set’s current affinity for Westernwear and — for better or worseall things protest-inspired.

Bandanas on the Spring 2017 runways.

On a related note, bandanas turned up on many a Fall 2017 runway — and not by coincidence. On the eve of fashion month, The Business of Fashion invited members of “the global fashion community” to wear a white bandana around their wrists, necks, heads or handbags “as a sign to the world that you believe in the common bonds of humankind — regardless of race, sexuality, gender or religion.” Models at Tommy Hilfiger, Prabal Gurung, Diane von Furstenberg and more bandana-ed up in solidarity.

Of course, Tommy & Co. weren’t the first to use bandanas to liven up their looks. Stuart Vevers is a longtime kerchief fan. For Spring 2017, nearly every Coach 1941 look came paired with a bandana, usually in the form of a cloth bracelet. Baja East’s models wore theirs folded, flattened and tied around their crowns, hippie-style.

Bandanas are great for any and all weather, but we appreciate them most under extreme meteorological conditions. In the winter, when all you want to wear is a sweater and jeans, bandanas add a touch of interest to your swaddle. In the summer, when metals irritate and outerwear is a no-go, that extra swatch of material adds dimension to a simple one- or two-piece look (as Gigi Hadid demonstrates above).

Best of all, the styling possibilities are endless. For summer, take a page out of Maria Grazia Chiuri’s stylebook and wrap a bandana around your head to avoid straw-hat hair. Or make like Los Angeles-based streetwear label Fear of God and wear one (or two) as an anklet. While this trick doesn’t serve any real “purpose,” it will draw attention to your fresh summer footwear. (In fashion, aesthetics always trump utility.)
