Back in May, Arsenal opted out of their deal with Nike -who had dressed them on the pitch for over 20 years – in favor of Puma. Now the London club has agreed to a deal with Lanvin to dress them up off the pitch, making the French fashion house the team’s official tailor for the next two years. This Saturday, when Arsenal takes on Southampton, the squad will all be wearing Lanvin Homme suits to and from the game. Designed by Lanvin’s Lucas Ossendrijver, the athletes will be wearing a classic ensemble of midnight blue Italian Super 110 suits, slim white cotton poplin shirts, red silk ties, black derby shoes, a silver-buckled belt, and cufflinks engraved with the famous Arsenal cannon.

Kate Moss is 39 years old. That simple fact must terrify a generation of fashionistas and cool kids — now cool men — who came of age in the era of ’9’0s grunge, when Moss’ Heroin Chic look made her one of the biggest models in the world.
But facing down her 40th birthday doesn’t seem to scare Kate much, because when Hugh Hefner approached her to do a spread celebrating Playboy‘s 60th issue, she was down. Not only that, but she’s barely lost a step looks-wise, we’d definitely chug her filthiest bathwater.
Now, photography duo Merta Alas and Marcus Piggott have shared an outtake from the shoot (above) and it’s reason #1 Moss is the coolest of 39 year olds.
Here are six more…
She’s Not Afraid to Go Pose-for-Pose With Rihanna in V-Magazine
So what if Rihanna‘s 14 years her junior and one the biggest names in pop culture, Moss isn’t afraid to strip down and host Ratchet RiRi on her lap.
Naomi Campbell Will Go Topless For Her
Kate’s long-time model buddy Naomi Campbell has already hit the 40th Year of Life milestone (she’s actually 43), but Moss always brings out the best in her.
Sir Paul McCartney Lets Her Dance On His Piano
When Sir Paul McCartney wanted to shoot a music video for his new song, “Queenie Eye”, he did what any self-respecting musician/knight would do: fill a room with the most famous people he knows and have them all groove out.
One of those celebs was Kate Moss, who got the most-primest of placements: high atop McCartney’s piano.
She Digs On Rita Ora
Moss already has a laundry list of musical and pop culture conquests (Johnny Depp, Dazed and Confused‘s editor Jefferson Hack, and her husband, The Kills’ Jamie Hince) and even the beautiful Rita Ora isn’t immune to Moss’ advances.
Her Vintage Snaps Sell For Top Dollar
Earlier in 2013, New York art house Christie’s auctioned off 58 of Moss’ most iconic photographs. Want to know how much bank they pulled in? .73 million.
She’s Down To Read 50 Shades of Gray for Charity
It’s not every 39 year old who a) has the gall to giggle her way through the most famous of mommy porn novels on a national radio station like BBC Radio 1 and b) get people to donate money to charity by having her do it.

As Kevin Durant has reached heightened levels of success with his signature sneaker line, some often forget that the 6’8″ small forward knows a thing or two about style which is exactly why he was invited to the 2013 GQ “Men of the Year” Party earlier this week.
Alongside trendsetters like Pharrell Williams, Russell Westbrook, Trey Songz, Kid Cudi, Raphael Saadiq, RZA, Matthew McConaughey, and more, Durant took a moment to shed light on his style and what it takes to be a “gentleman”.
Check out Kevin Durant below and keep an eye out for fashion sense during this NBA season.
Sneakerheads rejoice: PUMA and Sneaker Freaker are back at it again, releasing two silhouettes under the re-commissioned Blaze of Glory moniker. Included this time around are the Blaze of Glory OG and Blaze of Glory LTWT styles, marking a continuation of the aesthetic the two parties first introduced with the OG five years ago. For the re-issue, the OG doesn’t stray far from the original design, although the sock liner has been given a subtle update. The LTWT most certainly pays homage to the original release, but is offered in a more lightweight style; ‘LTWT’, get it? Both silhouettes are presented in “Great White” and “Black Beast” color variations, and will be available in limited quantities only until November 30, meaning you should probably make getting these a priority.
