Living it up isn’t JUST about wine and chocolate for musician Theophilus London. As evidenced by his many clothing collabos, the dude’s way into fashion, and he’s well on his way to being a certifiable cross-over. Remember that swiggity-sweet glow-in-the-dark bomber he previewed on Instagram earlier this year? Well, get ready to put your bills on hold because it’s officially available for purchase (and is exclusive to the U.S.)! That’s right, folks. For a mere (lolz) $850, you could be the proud owner of London’s limited edition, NASA-inspired, reversible jacket that he co-designed with Surface to Air. Last night, Theo launched his latest collaborative project with a special performance at the label’s New York Flagship store, and we were there to peep the action.

Are you in the market for some gently worn clothing and/or shoes? Would you be into paying a lot of money for clothing that was once worn by members of a boy band whom you love? Do you have the scientific knowledge to extract DNA from worn clothing and then produce a clone from said DNA? Well, then, the stars have aligned for you! One Direction and Office Depot, as we know, have joined forces to produce back-to-school gear that is adorned with five QT faces. Now, fortunately for everyone in the world, Office Depot has gotten its hands on shirts, shoes, and pants worn by Harry, Niall, Liam, Zayn, and Louis and is auctioning them off for charity.
Jeremy Scott and A$AP Rocky for "Complex" Magazine.
Welp. Anyone remotely familiar with the music and style sensibilities of A$AP Rocky and Jeremy Scott had to know this was coming, right? By "this," I'm, of course, referring to the just-released news that this duo has teamed up with adidas Originals for a pair of limited edition collaboration sneakers. The "Fashion Killa" MC and the runway-ready streetwear (or is it street-ready runway?) designer started off as long-time admirers of each others' work and quickly spun that mutual respect into an actual friendship—supporting each other and even covering magazines together. On top of that, they each have their own separate relationships with adidas: Jeremy having contributed collections upon collections upon collections for the brand, and Rocky having lent his voice and pretty mug to a commercial earlier this year. The triple-headed collab was inevitable.
Look bad (but in a good way) in this throwback Michael Jackson "Stan Swag."
55 years ago today, Michael Jackson was born. The man has been and will continue to be a pop culture/music icon for decades, and on top of that, he had an inimitable personal style that always felt relevant and genuine in everything he did. In honor of what would have been the King of Pop's 55th birthday, we've rounded up a few of our favorite pieces of MJ Stan Swag. Because, honestly, who isn't a Stan for Michael?
Robert Pattinson gets undressed for Dior.
Well, well, well. Look who decided to loosen up his buttons. Was that so hard, R. Patz? After 3 months of pensive stares, roof-top sitting and fully-clothed bathing, Dior has officially let Robert Pattinson's sparkly vampire chest out of its constrictive (albeit well-constructed) shirt-cage. It's not everything we hoped and dreamed for, but darn it, it's something. And we'll take it.
We definitely expected our style correspondents, Grimes and Rachel Antonoff, to be thorough in their red carpet interviews. By thorough, we were imagining things like: head-to-toe run-downs, designers, fabrics, inspiration, pre-carpet getting ready rituals, etc. You know the drill. #FASHUN But when the girls hooked up with Travi$ Scott, they took thorough to a whoooole new level.

Kanye West's sense of personal style is as unpredictable as his music, and if you will notice, his clothing evolves with every album. And we've come a long way from the hoodies and v-neck sweater vests of his first few albums—we've even zipped past his Rick Owens man-kilts and all Givenchy everything (though trust, Yeezy will never turn his back on his friend/the god Riccardo Tisci). Earlier this week, when he appeared on his baby's grandma's show Kris and out-trending-topic'd himself (#Krisye!), he dressed down in khakis and a white tee and denim—it was Balenciaga, but still.
One Direction admire their fragrance.

Ahh, it's Christmas in August! After a few teasers that left us sufficiently teased, the full ad for One Direction's first fragrance, "Our Moment," was released today and boy, oh boy, do we have a lot to discuss.
I don't watch a lot of daytime TV, but I will pause anything and everything I'm doing in the name of Kanye West. No exaggeration. Naturally, I blocked out my afternoon and devoted it to the VMA performer's special guest appearance on the season finale of the Kris Jenner Show. Yeezy is notoriously very selective about how much and the kind of press he does. If your baby mama's mama has a talk show and asks you to be on it, though, it's very hard to say, "No." Also, you probably genuinely want to do that.
There are a lot of reasons to love this couch interview, from his softer-spoken demeanor chatting with Kris to the hilariously adorable reveal that Kanye has photoshopped himself into the infamous Kardashian Christmas card, but we're here to break down the biggest fashion Easter eggs from the hour-long special.
