When you’ve reached the status that Jay Z achieved in 2013, you can pretty much do anything you want: release your newest album as download through a phone company, drop ,590 leather boxer shorts as part of your collection with Barneys, start a sports agency and threaten the Yankees with a full page photo in the New York Post of Robinson Cano as a Met.
You can now add “getting a piece of art into the Miami Art Basel show” to that list, as Jay Z has collaborated with New York-based collage artist David Datuna on a wall sculpture that will be debuted at the Contessa Gallery’s Art Basel booth on December 5th.
The mixed media piece uses hundreds of eyeglasses to create portraits of a young Jay Z alongside a grizzled Picasso. Read what you what from that juxtaposition, but the work, titled “Jay Z/Picasso: Opposition of Imagination”, has already received an out-sized heaping of buzz thanks to Jay Z.

Ok, so we’re talking just two seconds of David Beckham but that’s going to have to suffice. ”For the Open Road” looks back at Belstaff‘s biking roots following five British bikers kitted out in the brand’s gear as they journey from the Goodwood estate in West Sussex (home to all sorts of motoring shenanigans) to New Bond Street and the fancy surrounds of the flagship store. Joining fifty other riders and DB 07 in a motorbike parade, “speed meets style as they explore the spirit of the open road and the camaraderie it forges.” Press play for more.

The director’s cut of L’Invitation au Voyage, a short film showcasing Louis Vuitton‘s new Vivienne bag, features model Arizona Muse in a baroque-filled dreamworld of hot air balloons, pompadours, and monogrammed men in gold paint. Rockstar David Bowie has been chosen to serenade the enchanting beauty with a harpsichord rendition of “I’d Rather Be High” while she takes in the magic. The directors, famed Dutch fashion photographers Inez and Vinoodh, have done a smashing job of capturing the visionary creative without losing their signature radicalness. To put it simply, it’s kind of the “Rocky Horror Picture Show” movie meets Marie Antoinette meets high fashion meets Molly. Yea, we said it.

Happy Socks recently gave David LaChapelle complete creative freedom to direct their new film and the filmmaker really went to town on the idea. Inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s classic The Red Shoes, the film finds a young woman escaping her abusive mother by donning a pair of Happy Socks and dancing happily away. However, while the socks at first provide almost orgasmic relief, the dancing soon takes control and becomes overbearing and torturous. Spliced together with Crazy Eddie commercial footage, it’s every bit as insane as it sounds. The film goes hand-in-hand with LaChapelle’s super-camp photo campaign for Happy Socks which you can see here.

To heighten fans’ awareness of the official NBA Tip Off in five days, Jordan Brand is going on a marketing blitz with a focus on Los Angeles Clippers‘ Chris Paul and his new signature footwear, the Jordan CP3.VII. Part of this so-called “#Riquickulous” campaign involved the famous LA-base artist David Flores, who painted a mural of Chris Paul in motion. Made in Flores’ signature “stained glass” style, the painting had Paul’s right arm outstretched with a basketball, somewhat similar to a Michael Jordan ad done in the 1990s. See how the mural came together in a short video after the click below, or you can see it in person around the street corner from Sportie LA at 7763 Melrose Avenue.
