Word circling the rumor mill is that Kanye West has opted out of his long-standing relationship with Nike, choosing to work with adidas’ Y-3 imprint instead. The new project, hereby referred to as “YEEZI,” was referred to by West at his November 20 show. Reportedly, the venture comes as a result of West spending time with Yohji Yamamoto during the 2014 Mercedes-Benz NYFW show. This shift marks the latest chapter of Yeezy’s ongoing ventures in high fashion, having recently spent time with a team in Milan to design his forthcoming namesake label. Look for more news on “YEEZI” as it surfaces.
Can you feel the magic in the air, ’cause we do. The synergy between acclaimed designers John Galliano and Oscar de la Renta that produced the Oscar de la Renta Fall 2013 ready-to-wear collection is rumored to transpire once again to the delight of fashion fiends everywhere.
In the words of Oscar de la Renta, “We all loved having John here in the studio and would like to find a way of having him here more often.” If this is a way of insinuating a more permanent role for Galliano in the design house, then we’ll take it. After all, de la Renta is nearing the age of retirement (he’s already 81)– so who better to succeed his position than the talented John Galliano?
Hopefully the affect of Galliano’s tumultuous past has tapered down enough to let bygones be bygones. The world is craving more creative excitement in the fashion industry which Galliano is more than qualified to provide.
With fingers crossed, we hope that this is not just a rumor, but the real deal.

Hello world! Meet The KimYe Baby… Actually, according to TMZ, new parents Kim Kardashian and Kanye West will be naming their baby girl “North West.” Sources at Los Angeles Cedars-Sinai Hospital told the celebrity gossip site that the name “North West” appeared on the baby girl’s birth certificate when Kardashian went into labor on Saturday. Strange but there is some truth to the rumor. Apparently, both Kardashian and West have thought of a “directional name” for their child. In an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno back in March, Kardashian said that while “North West” was on the list of names, she preferred Easton instead, “I like Easton. Easton West. I think that’s cute.”
A few days ago, Facebook quietly began rolling out special, coffee-stained invites to key people regarding a private press conference to be held on June 20. While the Social Media giant could be churning up any number of alluring features, functions or advancements, TechCrunch is reporting that sources close to Facebook and Instagram are thinking that a Vine-like video addition may be in the works. While the news isn’t entirely new today, the addition of video functions for the much-loved photo sharing App would make sense. Add to that the fact that video has seen a strong presence with the popularity of Vine, Viddy, Cinegram and Socialcam rapidly onboarding new users, video on Instagram is seeming like a big possibility. While only time will tell if this rumor pans out to be true, functionality additions and UI updates have already proven that — like it or not — Instagram is rapidly developing beyond its humble and simple photo sharing roots.
If you’re like a good percentage of the sneaker world, you probably missed out on the release of the Air Jordan XIII “He Got Game” in March. Well word on the streets, which means the Twitterverse, is that Nike Store may be re-releasing this shoe very soon. If this rumor is true, a lot of people will no longer secretly hate on those who did get them.
With Apple’s dominant array of technology devices, it’s not unfathomable to speculate on the brand’s foray into a previously untapped, though sizable niche: gaming. While Microsoft has a long-running, successful stake in the market, TechCrunch reports that Apple has been meeting with developers at this year’s Game Developers Conference to bring an Apple game controller to the market. While its existence is yet to be officially confirmed, beefed up patent submissions for D-Pad controllers, Apple’s existing mediums for gameplay (ie: iPhone, iPad, and iPod), and a tip-off from AnandTech’s editors all signal the controller’s existence. Apple is set to host an iPad-focused conference later in April, and the device is speculated to be a main talking point. Be on the lookout for more updates in the coming weeks.
Despite several major lifestyle changes since 2010′s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, including another special collaboration project with Kim Kardashian, Kanye West has been hard at work producing his latest audio presentation. Speculation continues to grow about the project as the BBC hinted at a new possible name for the artist’s sixth album: I Am God. Of course, part of the reason that West became so popular amongst our generation was his special blend of braggadocio and brains; conceit and cleverness.
Aside from the BBC’s own article, the rumor remains nearly unfounded, but is this speculated title indicative of yet another development in West’s perpetually maturing sonic aesthetics? Did the BBC accidentally misspell G.O.O.D., or is this like when Lil’ Wayne released I Am Not A Human Being? Only time can answer these questions. In the meantime, read the BBC article and be sure to leave comments below.
As rumors abound surrounding the release of Apple’s potentially wearable technologies, all signs are now hinting at the possible release of the Apple iWatch sometime later this year. Of course, with the product’s release unconfirmed by Apple, the rumor still remains speculative at best. The iWatch is thought to combine the functionality of a phone with GPS and health monitoring sensors. The news source also hints at Jony Ive’s (Apple’s Chief Product Designer) long-standing interest in watches, while the company’s venture into wearable fitness tracking with Nike+ and the FuelBand may have been a platform for the iWatch. While mum is still the word on Apple’s end, another wearable computer from Google may serve as the impetus for speeding up the launch date.
Similar to sightings of Big Foot or UFO, there’s been plenty of backroom chatters over the next Supreme collaboration, yet little evidences to go on. However, this latest rumor about a second capsule collection between Supreme and COMME des GARÇONS SHIRT is quite different and for several reasons. First, it originated from Japan’s SENSE magazine, which gotten plenty of exclusives on future releases and collaborations over the years, including those from Supreme. Second, it is pertaining to COMME des GARÇONS SHIRT and the successful “high brow, low brow” appeal of the 2012 collaboration. Of course, there is the timing as well when you consider CDG’s retail concept, Dover Street Market, will be opening in New York City later this year. All too much of a coincidence if you ask us…
One thing you could say about J. J. Abrams is that the business of entertainment is in his blood. From a family of producers and screenwriter, Abrams’ talent in multitasking allowed him to be the writer, producer, director, even music composer to films like Regarding Henry, Armageddon, Mission: Impossible III, Super 8, Star Trek, and etc… He also dabbled in television series with Alias, Lost, Fringe, just name a few. But come 2015, Abrams will be taking on his most notable job role thus far as the director of Star War: Episode VII. It was about two months ago when Abrams rumored to turned down the position because of schedule conflicts. But anonymous sources told industry news site TheWrap that Abrams will be taking the job after all. Of course, Lucasfilm, its new owner Disney, and the publicist for J.J. Abrams will not comment about the speculation at this time.
