Gabriel Held, The Instagram Account You Need to be Following 


I stumbled across this account maybe a month ago on the popular, my bad, explore page on ig and I have been OBSESSED ever since. 


Vogue has coined Gabriel Held as, “Instagram’s foremost fashion historian” and I couldn’t agree more! When you divulge into Held’s insta account you learn that he is a stylist and vintage dealer who’s pieces have made there way to some pretty bad ass name, i.e. Rihanna in the “Wild Thought’s” Video!!!! 

Speaking of Rihanna, you have to check out Gabriel’s baritone rendition of “Wild Thoughts”! This baritone diva also covers Kandi’s “Don’t Think I’m Not”, (which is how I hit follow) not to mention a weekly video of him performing Lil Kim. (Sidebar: I was Lil Kim for Halloween in the 4th grade, my mom didn’t know who she was! Oh, and my sister and I got grounded for going to see her at the “No Way Out Tour” in ’97) 
As a lover of 80’s, 90’s and hip hop style Gabriel Held’s page evokes emotion for me and takes me to a certain place in my life where I was super carefree watching MTV, BET (when they both played music videos and now I’m telling my age) and dreaming of being in Vogue! 


So fashion lovers get in, follow @gabriel_held_vintage and enjoy the ride! I guarantee you will get your life on a daily!!! We all need it in these tumultuous times!

True Religion Files for Bankruptcy

True Religion has filed for bankruptcy protection today as the brand failed to evolved with fashion! The “high end” denim company have listed 100 million to 500 in assets and liabilities. 
I’m assuming the collaboration with NBA Star Russell Westbrook wasn’t profitable either. 
With that being said…While True Religion is blaming the decline of sales in brick and mortar stores and boom in online sales as there reason a they’ve seen a decline…NO ONE WAS EVEN BUYING TRUE RELIGION ANYMORE! 
All they had to do was go back to the drawing board and redesign the denim! Personally, I’ve never owned a pair of true religion and found the brand to be obnoxious and reminiscent of Ed Hardy but fashion is always evolving and you have to be aware of that getting into this business.

Versace Fall 2018 Campaign.

The Versace fall 2018 ad campaign shot by Bruce Weber echoed the mood and awareness of the words “Equality,” “Love” and “Power” that appeared on the designer’s catwalk.

Words that ring especially timely, true and focused in the wake of the tragic events that continuously make headlines. Against a blurry concrete gray backdrop Weber lensed models Gigi Hadid, Mica Arganaraz, Taylor Hill and Vittoria Ceretti wearing a crop of the season’s looks, from tailored black coats and sexy dresses to checkered draped dresses, their tresses tinted in green, orange and gray. A gaggle of hot male models round- out the photoshoot.

As the Versace house pointed out on Instagram, the campaign is “a powerful manifesto of unity and hope.”

In other Versace news, it looks like the Versace-Riccardo Tisci match has hit a standby after months of negotiation. According to industry insiders, it won’t happen after all.

The New-York Blackstone Group fund owns a 20 percent stake in Versace since 2014.

 

Also check out some winning looks  for the upcoming seasons Men and Women below the drop ! Its very lit! I need and want a little bit of it all! COME ON!!!! (more…)
