After a period of relative quiet by Kanye standards, Mr.West has returned with a furious album promo cycle and is hyping a return to music making with his forthcoming album Donda. After an extended hiatus from Instagram he returned with an outfit post of sorts, sharing a photo of this Bottega Veneta Jacket and and black leather Saint Laurent jeans. Stock levels have already started disappearing from the internet unsurprisingly but it’ll be telling whether he continues his focus on his personal style without even as much as sharing a fit pic. Some retailers that have a similar model Bottega Veneta include Mytheresa , SSENSE and Mr.Porter.
The Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 Low is set to release in the Black colorway on Saturday, August 22, 2015 at a retail price of $250USD. A huge swath of the the internet consisting of Kanye stans, resellers, hypebeasts, sneakerheads, and fuccbois will be out en mass in search of these. With resell prices of the original 350 hitting over $1000 on eBAy, hype is at an all-time high and expect all retailers to sell out within hours. Personally the Boost’s don’t do a lot for me but I understand their novelty and collect-ability of any Kanye Sneaker. There’s just other sneakers and boots out there that I’d much rather have for the price and time put in just to secure a pair of these.

Last night was the opening reception for photographer Jonathan Mannion’s exhibition at Milk Studios ‘Rough around the Edges’. The photos from the show were all shot on the now discontinued Poloroid 665 Film and Poloroid 195 land camera. Printing with the Polaroid 665 film includes the a negative which gives off the the appearances of “rough edges” on each shot. This was aesthetic that Jonathan loved and the collection of street photography and portraits of some of the biggest names in hip-hop of the last twenty years.
RROUGH AROUND THE EDGES: the 665 Polaroid Work of Jonathan Mannion runs at Milk Studios Gallery through to July 7th.
