Nutrimetics' 50th Anniversary Media Event
50 Influencers Celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Levi’s Trucker Jacket
The Council of Fashion Designers of America announced that Naomi Campbell will receive the Fashion Icon Award this year. The long-legged gazelle is joining the club of names such as Rihanna, Pharrell Williams, Beyoncé, Kate Moss, David Bowie, Iman, Lady Gaga and more. The ceremony will take place at the Brooklyn Museum on June 4. For the first time ever, the event will have a female host. The talented actress/director Issa Rae will have the honors to lead the evening in front of the star-studded guest list.
“It is truly an honor to be recognized by the CFDA with this year’s Fashion Icon Award. Being from London, my personal style has always been tremendously influenced by both the dynamic, ever-changing nature of street culture and the music scene. I grew up in this industry and I’m forever grateful to the iconic American fashion designers who have supported me and celebrated me throughout my career.”- Campbell stated.
Words are not enough to explain all of Naomi’s accomplishments in the fashion industry. The term iconic barely does her justice. Campbell is the first black woman to pose on the covers of Time magazine and Vogue France. She has fronted so many other covers, that it’s hard to keep track. The supermodel was a close friend and muse to the late legendary designer Azzedine Alaïa. He was the one who helped her the most in her career and supported her throughout the years. Campbell was often the source of inspiration and walked most of his runway shows.
Naomi has established herself as an actress on the screens and also stared in a number of music videos. There isn’t a single person who doesn’t remember her impactful appearance in Michael Jackson’s “In The Closet” video. At the age of 47, the gorgeous Campbell still looks like she’s in her 20s. She uses every chance to show off that fierce, recognizable look on the catwalks even now. And we’re all here to feast our eyes every single time.
The CFDA also announced all the nominees in the different categories. In the women’s best designer category the nominee list includes Gabriella Hears, Marc Jacobs, Raf Simons, Virgil Abloh, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. Carolina Herrera will be presented with the Founder’s Award, which pays homage to Eleanor Lambert. Edward Enninful, on the other hand, will be honored with the Media Award celebrating Eugenia Sheppard. Dianne Von Furstenberg will be awarded the Swarovski Award for Positive Change.

Leave it to Nike to make the women’s sneaker industry more diverse and inclusive. Ladies sure do love sneakers, but they don’t always get what they want and deserve. Most times female designs are not available in all the sizes or are not as cool as men’s. Nike is set to change all of that. That is why the popular brand announced a special retail concept that celebrates women and their passion for sporty footwear.
“It all starts with providing access to the products that we know women love — this is extremely important. Then, it’s about having a more personal conversation… By showing women the different ways in which they can wear [sneakers], we can remove the barriers that we see. We very much see it as a way to connect trend, style and maintain a finger on the pulse locally, but at the same time also give visibility to what is happening in key cities through partnerships with people that are authoritative.”- explained Julie Igarashi, creative director and vice president of Nike Women.
The sportswear brand has been celebrating women in many different ways so far. Starting from their “The 1 Reimagined Concept” that debuted recently, their ideas only get better with time. According to Nike, the Unlaced programme will satisfy every sneaker needs of women. This concept will feature many new options for their customers, including a same-day delivery for the VIP members. In addition, there will be an expanded range of female sizes, so that every lady can get the shoes she likes. You don’t have to worry about colors anymore, or getting your hands on an exclusive capsule only for men. There will also be an expanded size range for the Virgil Abloh “The Ten” collection.
For all the ladies who lack inspiration for their athleisure looks, Nike Unlaced will be here to help. You’ll be able to find this concept on the brand’s website and turn to it for help at any time. As a part of the programme, Nike will collaborate with many female curators to adapt their new drops to the needs of female customers. The first one on the list is Julia Sarr-Jamois, a London-based stylist, and editor of i-D. We can’t wait to see all the fun projects this platform will release.
So get excited about March 27, when Unlaced will make an online debut. This new concept will be included in Nike stores sometime over the summer. Consider it as a heaven for all female sneakerheads out there!

Off-White’s luxury footwear collection with Jimmy Choo is finally here. Virgil Abloh is one who creates trends, instead of following them. The innovative designer partnered with the British high-end shoe company to deliver a line that is completely different from anything you’ve seen before. This is the first time that the everyone’s favorite luxury footwear brand partners with a ready-to-wear fashion house.
“To collaborate with a brand like Off-White allows Jimmy Choo to explore a new avenue and take part in a different conversation. I love to mix it up by getting together with a different creative mind identifying our synergies and combining our DNA to create a beautiful and surprising collection with unexpected links to the roots of our brand.”- said Sandra Choi, Jimmy Choo’s creative director.
The collection merges the minimalistic streetwear vibes from Off-White and the trademark luxury silhouettes from Jimmy Choo. In other words, the designs satisfy the needs of both elegant and edgy ladies at the same time. It was first previewed during the brand’s SS 2019 runway show when everyone had a chance to get a sneak peek of the line. Since then, celebrities such as Rihanna flaunted the unique boots and stilettos on several occasions, which made fans even more eager to get their hands on the collection.
Transparent plastic and PVC are officially the top trending materials for 2019. So why not get a pair of high heels that feature all of that plus striking embellishment or fancy straps. It’s already been months since the preview at Paris Fashion Week, but the two brands are releasing the collection just in time for spring. There are also several pairs of chic boots, decorated with ruched fabric or plastic. The most striking designs are the high-heeled pumps wrapped in plastic.
Virgil’s inspiration was the style icon Princess Diana. The designer paid homage to her contributions to the fashion world with the Spring 2019 collection, as well as with this footwear collaboration. Diana was also a huge fan of Jimmy Choo and never missed an opportunity to wear the brand’s stunning stilettos.
The Off-White x Jimmy Choo collaboration is currently available for purchase online at jimmychoo.com, mytheresa.com and at Harvey Nichols. The two brands also collaborated with Selfridges, on a pop-up that will be opened until March 18. As expected, these stunning designs cost a tiny fortune. Prices start at 0 for the Mary Bow 100 pumps, up to ,995 for the Victoria 100 embellished satin pumps.

It has been a while since a designer convinced the legendary Kate Moss to go back on the runway. Her last official walk was at Louis Vuitton’s Fall 2013 women’s show. Five years later, the same fashion house got Moss up on the runway. The credit goes to Kim Jones, Louis Vuitton’s menswear designer, and Kate’s close friend. He invited the ’90s biggest runway stars Kate Moss and her supermodel friend Naomi Campbell on his last Louis Vuitton show. The designer is leaving the fashion house after 7 years of service. Kim Jones made sure to depart with a stellar show. Watching the iconic supermodel pals Naomi and Kate stroll down the runway was a moment to remember.

Although men’s fashion weeks attract way less audience than the women’s ones, die-hard fashionistas might be sorry If they missed this Paris Mens’ Fashion Week. Kim Jones closed his Fall/Winter 2019 Louis Vuitton fashion show holding hands with Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss. The two supermodels wore shiny matching monogrammed trench coats and edgy lace-up boots. As Kim Jones was taking his final bow, the heavily influential audience at Palais-Royal stood on their feet for a standing ovation. Kim Jones is truly one of the greatest menswear designers adored by designers, celebrities, and fashion obsessives. Victoria Beckham and her famous husband, Olivier Rousteing, Virgil Abloh, Craig Green, Humberto Leon, and Chitose Abe were the designers who watched the show from the front row.

Kim Jones used his last show to thank the man who got him the job as a menswear designer at Louis Vuitton. The designer shared photos from Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss with the caption:
“This was really a thank-you and reference to Marc Jacobs’s early-2000s Vuitton and the fact that he was the one who gave me the opportunity to be [at] Louis Vuitton. Thank you all.”

Besides honoring Marc Jacobs’s era at Louis Vuitton, Kim Jones made s strong case for age-inclusivity on the runway. Naomi Campbell 47, and Kate Moss 44 proved that they still own the runway. Campbell was pretty present on the fashion scene lately. She helped Donatella Versace to pay tribute to her late brother Gianni Versace closing the fashion house’s Spring 2019 show together with other older supermodels such as Cindy Crawford, Claudia Schiffer, Carla Bruni and Helena Christensen. The model also joined her beloved Azzedine Alaia at his couture Fall 2019 show in July. That was his last show before he passed away in November.
The favorite streetwear label at the moment Off-White just launched a more affordable line. Virgil Abloh, the man behind the cult “For Walking” boots, is ready to give a piece of his creativity at more budget-friendly prices. Dubbed “For All”, the new line offers t-shirts and hoodies in the brand’s recognizable aesthetic. The color palette is kept minimalistic including only black and white color. The designs are aiming towards millennials who couldn’t afford Virgil’s Off-White luxury prices.
You can spot the brand’s recognizable simple yet effective graphics and texts all over the designs. The pieces are up-to-date with the latest street trends. The street fashion is highly influenced by Virgil Abloh since he launched his label in 2013. Virgil Abloh is one of the few luxury designers who are keen to collaborate with affordable brands and offer their designs to a bigger audience.
First, he partnered up with Warby Parker on an eyewear line. A month after that a collaboration with Nike followed up. Virgil Abloh designed sneakers for the sportswear brand and the street crowd went crazy over the designs. Rumor has it that Virgil Abloh will also drop a football-inspired collection for the FIFA World Cup in partnership with Nike. Furthermore, an affordable line for the Swedish furniture giant Ikea is set to release later this year. Virgil Abloh is very open to democratizing his work in many innovative ways. According to the designer limiting yourself to one specific price-point is old-fashioned in this day and age. Off-White’s growing revenues prove that Virgil Abloh understands the business of fashion.
‘Off-White can be luxury at a traditional luxury price point, or equally it can be relevant at an affordable price point,’ the designer explained.
The affordable capsule collection “For All” offers prices that millennials will love. Starting from for T-shirts and 5 for hoodies, every street fashion addict will want to sneak a piece of this collection. Just for comparison, Off-White’s tees usually retail between 0 to 0. The capsule is unisex which once again shows Abloh’s efforts to make fashion more accessible. There are eight essential pieces available to purchase in Off-White’s 11 stores across the world. All the items are made in the brand’s Milan workshops which means the highest quality is guaranteed.
Everything that Virgil Abloh makes immediately becomes a street staple. There is no doubt that these limited edition affordable pieces will fly off the stores’ shelves.

Each year we witness a super-chic trend that looks good on bloggers, but it might look like too much on people that don’t dress up for a living. This year, that trending accessory is the long belt. Throughout the years, fashionistas made a strong case for this belt in many different ways. But, 2019 offered a unique perspective on how to wear it. Since the days of simple outfits are long gone, everyone wants to include something that makes their outfit stand out. The best way to do it this season is to add statement accessories.
Belts are underrated. It all started with Off-White’s now-iconic industrial belt. These fierce pieces look like a caution tape you’ve probably seen in the movies. Virgil Abloh clearly knows what he’s doing, since every single fashion blogger owns one of these. Even his celebrity besties Bella and Gigi Hadid showed off their Off-White long belts. What’s even better, the designer released a video on his Instagram page which will teach you how to wear them. Hopefully with all these trendy looks that we chose you won’t need additional inspiration.
Not many ladies think about a belt as the central piece of the outfit. Instead, most of us first think about jewelry and hats. But 2019 is officially the year of experimenting in fashion. From style bloggers to celebrities, everyone is trying to be as unique as possible. You might find this long belt trend as weird. Trust us, you will change your mind once you see all these fashionable looks.
Since cold days are ahead of us, you will need a belt that matches your coat. During the fashion month, a lot of the showgoers matched their trendy trench coats with this accessory. And we must admit that those two items are meant to be worn together. Chunky winter coats go much better with thick leather long belts. If you love rocking outwear with masculine cuts, this belt will give your figure a feminine touch on the waist.
Another way to wear it is with a dress. Just wrap it around your waist and you are ready to go. Other options include baggy pants, jeans, and trendy skirts. Also, the length and the way you wrap it are your choices. Some bloggers went with extremely long styles that reach to the ankles, while others wore shorter designs above the knees.
Flip through to check out all the cool ways you can wear a long belt this season. If you want to add unconventional accessories to your style, look no further.

Nike is celebrating the 35th anniversary of their most iconic model, the Air Force 1. For that purpose, the sportswear giant teamed up with five big names at the moment. The exciting collection is named AF100 and features five brand new styles of sneakers. Virgil Abloh from Off-White, the rapper Travis Scott, Roc-A-Fella, Just Don, and Errolson Hugh from the brand Acronym are the ones that got to create the new collection.
The Air Force 1 got five new faces while keeping its signature aesthetic. The designers had the freedom to include personal elements in the new styles. But, they still had to maintain all the things that are recognizable for these sneakers ever since the beginning.
“There is no other shoe that connects to sport, music, fashion, art, the street and the city all at the same time. The most ubiquitous Air Force 1 is the white-white. For the 35th anniversary, we selected collaborators who are impacting future generations across culture. Their brief was filtered through the white-white lens. The design brief was to remain classic and recognizable to the Air Force 1 while connecting to each collaborator’s life personally and the fields they represent.”- said the lead designer and creative director of Nike, Al Baik.
The It designer of the moment, Virgil Abloh created a shoe with a silver Nike logo and the “Off-White for Nike” words behind the sign. This is the first design that will be released, and fans can get it at the ComplexCon event at Long Beach. The Air Force 1 x Off-White will drop on November 4.
Roc-A-Fella and Kareem “Biggie” Burk are set to launch their style on November 30. The designer kept the look of his Air Force 1 simple. He just added the logo of his brand to the sneaker. This style will cost you 0.

The trendiest store in the world Colette and Off-White collaborated on a capsule collection. The iconic Parisian retailer tapped the emerging designer Virgil Abloh and his brand to create a limited-edition line.
The main reason behind the collaboration is the International Fair of Contemporary Art (FIAC). FIAC will be set at the astonishing Grand Palais in Paris, starting from 19th to 22nd of October. This year marks the 44th edition of the fair, and just like many times in the past, a lot of up-and-coming artists will present their creations. This is a famous event in Paris that attracts more people every year.
In honor of the event, Colette invited Virgil Abloh to design a capsule collection. The exclusive line is named “SCULPTURE” and features five items. They are all done in the recognizable minimalistic style that Abloh often presents. Each piece from the line is done in black and decorated with either blue or white letters. The official logo of Colette is two blue dots. So that is why Abloh used the blue color to decorate the black designs.
The capsule includes two bags. One of those is a small flap bag in black that has the word “SCULPTURE” written in blue.
The second design is a larger black tote bag, with the same word written on the front. In addition to the bags, you will get a chic blue Industrial Belt strap. Abloh has also designed a pair of sky-high stiletto shoes that have the words “FOR WALKING” stamped in blue.
There are only two clothing items. If you are a fan of Virgil’s athleisure designs, you will fall in love with the chic hoodie. It is a very simple black hoodie that features the name of the capsule in white plastered on the front.
The T-shirt also carries a basic design with the same white writing on the front. The hoodie and the T-shirt are decorated with the words “COLETTE FIAC” on the back. Everything in the collection is very sophisticated and minimalistic.
The limited-edition capsule is already available online at colette.com and in-store. The price range for the line is between 9 and ,847. Colette is probably the most influential store in Paris. Unfortunately, the owner Colette Roussaux announced that the store will soon be closing on December 20th. The announcement took the fashion world by surprise. Apparently, the high-fashion shopping in Paris will never be the same without Colette.

The denim giant Levi’s is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the most iconic American garment ever- their denim trucker jacket. The mega-popular trucker jacket has many variations. They are all chic and cool. Today, everyone owns at least one denim jacket. The first Levi’s trucker jacket was made in 1967. This year the jacket celebrates 5 epic decades.
Levi’s celebrated the anniversary in the coolest possible way. The brand joined with 50 celebrities, influencers, musicians, actors, athletes, models, designers, and fashion editors. The impressive line-up includes famous faces such as Karlie Kloss, Miroslava Duma, Justin Timberlake, Snoop Dog, Diplo, Karla Welch, Virgil Abloh, Solange Knowles, G-Dragon and more. Each person had a chance to customize and create their version of the trucker jacket. Levi’s wanted to emphasize the individuality and uniqueness of all of these artists and give them the liberty to express what they do best through design.
All of the chic Type III toppers were showcased during an event that the brand held on Thursday, October 5. Many celebrities gathered at the Levi’s Haus in Los Angeles to support this event and to present their custom jackets. Karlie Kloss went with a very chic version of the Type III Topper. The supermodel created a cropped black denim jacket that looks fashionable with everything you wear.
“Growing up in the Midwest, I think I only wore denim. I was a jeans and T-shirt girl that learned high fashion by working in the industry, but I grew up in Levi’s. I wanted to make a silhouette that was the classic Trucker style, oversize long sleeves so your hands can kind of slide into the jacket so you can just see fingers, and cropped. It has cool attitude and is one of those things you can just throw on.”- Karlie said.
Solange Knowles is known for her distinctive style. The singer transferred her unique sense of fashion into a long white jean jacket. Knowles took designing to a whole new level with this lab-coat-like Levi’s trucker. Snoop Dog is another star that joined Levi’s on their adventure. The rapper decorated his topper with several patches that celebrate the West Coast.
All of the other stars found unique ways to pay homage to this iconic piece of clothing. Even after 5 decades of domination on the fashion scene, the trucker jacket is still going strong.
