Louis Vuitton really hearts Hip Hop! On the heels of Pharell’s Blason jewelry collection for LV earlier this year, comes news that Kanye West is collaborating with the company on a shoe line. Kanye made the announcement in Paris on Friday, and I’m sure we’ll be seeing a lot of him this week, front row at all the couture shows.

Sneak Peek: Richard Chai for Target’s Go International

Richard Chai once stood me up for an interview I scheduled with him for some Korean magazine. I had to write the entire article based on internet sources and what his “people” would tell me, and it sucked! However, I will forgive him based on this Go International Line.

As always with these capsule collections, it will be interesting to see it up close, but these pictures are promising.

It’ll be available in August, and the also-promising in-house summer collection at Target comes out this Sunday.

Boudicca’s Wode: It’s Blue

To match its mysterious, non-conformist image, Boudicca is set to release a new fragrance called Wode.  Since most of Boudicca’s collections seem to be about de-constructing traditional forms, it makes sense that Zowie Broach and Brian Kirkby would release a blue fragrance.

To make thing more interesting, it comes in a spray paint can, so you can feel like a back-alley wall during each application. Just make sure you’re not wearing white like that unfortunate girl in the promo pic.

When did this start? And does this beat Fab Moretti going out with Drew Barrymore? I think so.

Threadtrend was invited to attend the Fred Perry / Fader Magazine Subculture party, which brings together the music of the UK and the US at the Echo in Los Angeles. It featured performances by Jeremy Jay and the hot hot buzz band These New Puritans.

There was plenty of free Bass Ale on hand to keep you as cool as possible (which, considering the sweltering heat, not that cool). These New Puritans delivered on the rave reviews and had everyone in the crowd dancing and thrashing to their music. Chain Mail shirts should be the look of the summer. Enjoy some tunes below…..
