FROM BARCELONA TO BROOKLYN, DATURA IS A LABEL TO WATCH

Image
It's no surprise that Instagram is now one of the most popular places for shoppers and fashion lovers to find style inspiration and discover new brands. While it's often the flashiest, most accessorized looks that earn the most "likes," it's the opposite in my case — the simplest, most effortless pieces that can do double (or sometimes triple) duty in my closet are what really grab my attention. That's what drew me to Datura,

Kanye West Has a New Kardashian Muse

Image
When we first saw Kanye West's Adidas collection in February, we loved how he fused a series of influences like athleisure and military into one super utilitarian vision. But in true Yeezy form, he was also heavily inspired by a Kardashian woman when designing the half oversized, half skin-tight collection. The only caveat is that he didn't turn to his wife Kim to get his creative juices flowing—rather, he hit up her little sister Khloe.

I Like It Like This S|2 x Drake

Image
Contemporary black culture in America is a fluid amalgamation of reciprocal influences: fine art overlaps with music, music overlaps with literature, literature overlaps with dance and beyond. Music has been an essential component of expressing the black American experience dating back centuries, reaching a creative crescendo with the birth of Jazz in the 1920s, a period famously influential to contemporary artists like Jean-Michel Basquiat who used musical motifs throughout his oeuvre.

How Miguel Cures Tequila Hangovers and Maintains Eight-Pack Abs on the Road

Image
Being a modern-day rock star like Miguel may seem like the life everyone dreams of, but no matter who you are, being away from home for months at a time comes with a price. For one, even the most casual shoppers are forced to reduce their wardrobe to a single suitcase. And for someone like Miguel, who's seemingly always groomed to perfection, a regimen could prove hard to replicate without the familiarity of his own medicine cabinet. So, as he hits the road for his Wildheart tour, which starts in North America and heads overseas this fall, we talked to the silky smooth crooner about how he manages to pack light, how he keeps his body (read: eight-pack abs) looking fresh, and how he can bounce back from a long night out and still tear the house down on stage the very next day.
