Singer Katy Perry was spotted over in Malaysia for the MTV World Stage Live event wearing an animal print dress with a pair of Christian Louboutin St. Jeannette Spike Gold sandals from the Spring/Summer 2010 collection ($975). These peep toe sandals have clear PVC plastic covered with metal spikes on the front, a leather ankle strap, 4.5 inch heels, and the signature red sole. Christian Louboutin loves making studded shoes. And I can’t blame him, because they can liven up any outfit. See pics below.

Kanye West Introduces the Rosewood Movement

So Kanye West has finally issued a name to his new (all I wear is designer suits) look and he calls it the “Rosewood Movement”. At the moment the movement consist of himself  Don C, Virgil Abloh, and the new kid on the block Jalil Peraza. I’m not really sure what the movement is trying to push but if you know your history Rosewood has some strong civil rights ties to it. I’m hoping that this is just a faze or a ploy before the release of his album, but it seems that Kanye has made wearing suits the essential component to the movement. Not that I don’t like the suit look because I do, it’s just that I find wearing them daily comes off as very uniform to me. So my question is: Do you like the new “Rosewood Movement” look and do you think it will catch on? Check out video + pics of Kanye & Jay-Z eating out below

Pop icon Madonna was spotted directing scenes for her new movie W.E. in France, wearing an Undefeated Bronx Jacket ($100) in black/white. The five button jacket features the Undefeated five strike logo on the left chest, a script logo across the back, side slit pockets along with a ribbed collar, cuffs, and waistband. I honestly did a double take when I saw this, I would’ve never expected to see Madonna rocking the popular streetwear brand, Undefeated. See pics below

Check out part of Ibn Jasper’s skate deck collection featuring decks from the Andy Warhol x Alien Workshop series collaboration. The series features ten pro decks showcasing work from Andy Warhol’s Death & Disaster Series and his iconic Pop works. In the picture (shown above) he arranges the decks behind the Original Fake KAWS Dissected Companion Bearbrick. The child-sized figurine stands 70cm tall inside of the Louis Vuitton x Stephen Sprouse Skate Deck, and trunk holding an assortment of POW chains like it was Lady Liberty. Creative to say the least.

Here is a look into the Yves Saint Laurent Fall/Winter 2010 collection. YSL’s footwear captured a lot of attention when they first released the Rolling High Top leather sneaker a few years ago. Now with a few changes to the silhouette, the Fall/winter 2010 Collection is making noise again and I love what I’m seeing. Look for the full collection to be out by mid-fall and start making room in your closet, I know I will. Video & more pics below.
