The visuals for Yeezy’s “I Feel Like That” was [unofficially] released this week and if you break it down, it turns the myriad of symptoms surrounding mental health into a bold, unabashed artistic monument. That one of this generation’s most visible artists, let alone a rapper, recorded this track is symbolic of the pathways that have started to open up in the global conversation regarding mental health which many often think of – sadly – as the elephant in the room.
One of the most controversial acts in the industry – Kanye West – casually uploaded some new music last night.
Kanye West’s new track – titled ‘FACTS’ – is the best New Year’s Eve gift we could have all asked for. Leave it to Yeezus to pull a move like this, right? What better way to ring in 2016 to casually debut some long-awaited, new music?
Don’t answer that, it’s rhetorical.
For the last ten years, sneakers have been seen as more than just something we wear to cover our feet. They have been a cultural expression (and for some, an obsession) and an icon of modern times.
In today’s society, sneakers have become a design art form and to many, they make a person’s outfit. Not to sound too superficial, but they are your visual identity. Your shoes represent who you are and what you’re into; what culture you’re part of.
So, what culture are you apart of?
Katie Eary who has famously worked with Kanye West on his previous collections has been chosen as the newest collaborator to work with the UK’s high end street brand, River Island for their Design Forum Spring/Summer collection.
I’m not usually a fan of animal print but the pattern seems to work in this particular collection, mixed with bright, bold colours for its fashion pieces, swimwear and accessories.
