Earlier today Louis Vuitton confirmed their collaboration with New York streetwear staple Supreme and shared teasers of a couple items from the collection. Later in the day, Louis Vuitton had their Paris runway show and unveiled the whole collection. Photos are already circulating on the internet, so we’ve shared the best here.
While we’ve already seen the all-over print denim shirt, the stuff that really shines is what Louis Vuitton does best: bags. The phone carrier, handbag and backpack all prominently look like Supreme products, but the structuring and detailing is beyond everything they’ve done before. Along with clothes, there are a range of accessories, from belts to phone cases and sunglasses.
Travi$ Scott was present for the show, and posted a photo of a pair of Louis Vuitton x Supreme driving gloves you can see below. This stuff will surely be a grail for resellers everywhere!
Kanye isn’t the only one in America’s premier celebrity family to endorse Trump. In fact, Caitlyn Jenner will be supporting him at tomorrow’s inauguration. Bruce Jenner was a well-known Republican, so the news shouldn’t be too surprising, but now that she identifies as a transgender woman, Caitlyn’s support of Trump hasn’t been received well among the LGBT community.
As for Trump’s people, some of them might see Jenner’s presence at the inauguration as an opportunity to persuade the LGBT faction to see their leader in a more amicable way. One adviser even thinks Trump and Jenner should share a dance at the inauguration party on Friday night. “It’s a brilliant idea,” an unnamed member of Trump’s administration told PageSix.
Trump and Jenner seem to be friends, so a friendly dance shouldn’t be out of the question. In April, Jenner posted a Facebook video of her entering a women’s bathroom in the Trump Tower, noting that the president-elect had personally told her she could use whatever bathroom she liked in any Trump-owned facility.
Another Republican also told PageSix that he thinks a photograph of a dance between Trump and Jenner would be a good PR move for the GOP. “The image of Trump dancing with Caitlyn would send a strong message that he supports gay rights and trans rights,” said the Republican. “A picture is worth a thousand tweets.”
With just a day to go before the inaugural celebration, though, it is unlikely that such a dance will come to fruition. “I can’t deal in hypotheticals and have no idea what Trump aids hope happens,” a rep for Jenner told PEOPLE, before adding, “Of course, real question is if they danced, who would lead?” Considering Trump’s ego, one would think he would want to have control, though Jenner’s no docile lady. Think we’ll see these two polarizing figures meet on the dancefloor tomorrow evening?
Aaron Hernandez has been identified as the shooter in a double-murder by one of the men who survived the 2012 drive by shooting in Boston.
During yesterday’s pretrial, Raychides Sanches recalled the events that unfolded on the night of July 16, 2012. According to the New York Post, Sanches told prosecutors that he was a passenger in a car stopped at a light in the city’s South End when an SUV pulled up and someone from the SUV said, “What’s up, negroes?” before opening fire.
The bullets struck and killed 29-year-old Daniel de Abreu and 28-year-old Safiro Furtado.
When asked who the shooter was, Sanches nodded at Hernandez, who is already serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole for the 2013 murder of Odin Lloyd.
Compton rapper, Game, will continue to fight a reality show contestant who accused the rapper of sexual assault, and ultimately won a $7.1 million verdict.
A woman named Priscilla Rainey, who was a contestant on his reality dating show “She’s Got Game” accused Game, born Jayceon Taylor, of assaulting her on an “after hours date,” that she thought was part of the show.
Rainey claimed Game put his hands up her skirt and rubbed her bare vagina and buttocks during a drunken evening out on the town.
Rainey, who originally sued for $10 million, was awarded a $7.1 million verdict, after a four-day trial in November.
Game filed a notice of appeal last week, indicating he is planning to fight the verdict.
Tom Pelissero of USA Today is reporting that NFL teams were informed Tuesday that the 2017 salary cap is expected to be between $166 million – $170 million.
The current salary cap is set at $155.27 million, which means we could be looking at increases of $10.73 million – $15 million when everything is set in stone.
This past weekend, Adam Schefter of ESPN reported the NFL was planning to inform teams this week that salary cap would be somewhere between $163 million and $165 million, so it appears as though this was an early, conservative estimate.
It’s worth mentioning that the first figures released, particularly from the NFL, are typically low estimates, so the possibility exists that the cap could climb even higher than these early figures.
Enough is enough, Charles. At least that what fellow TNT analyst Kenny Smith thinks when it comes to Charles’s Barkley’s ongoing silent treatment with Michael Jordan.
Barkley was critical of Jordan years ago based on how he was running the Charlotte Bobcats (now Hornets). Jordan took exception to Barkley’s take and the two have hardly spoken since, which is a shame for two NBA legends that were once close.
Barkley told ESPN’s Dan Le Batard Show earlier this month that he missed Jordan.
“I love Michael. I miss Michael’s friendship,” he said. “He was a great friend to me for a long period of time and I love him and miss him like a brother.”
Former Saints player Will Smith was accused of bringing about “his own demise” by the friend of Smith’s accused killer, Cardell Hayes, during one of the most dramatic moments to date in Hayes’ murder trial.
That friend, Kevin O’Neal, testified for nearly four hours Thursday, stressing the point that Smith and others in his party were acting as the aggressors in an altercation that led up to Hayes’ shooting Smith eight times and Smith’s wife, Racquel, being shot in the legs.
O’Neal’s statement came when he responded loudly to an assistant district attorney who was asking about Smith not being there anymore for Racquel and their children.
“Did her husband bring it by his own demise?” O’Neal said — which elicited loud sobbing from the area of Racquel and other family and loved ones. “I’m just asking. He attacked this man (Hayes) from the beginning to the end of that situation. At no point in time did I ever see this man (Hayes) irate or aggressive with anyone out there. At no point in time, my God’s honest truth, did I ever see (Hayes) get angry.”
Hayes is claiming self-defense in the case, which has centered on whether Hayes felt in fear for his life when he opened fire on Smith and allegedly on Smith’s wife. Other witnesses have testified that Smith and passenger Richard Hernandez were both acting aggressively during a shouting match with Hayes and O’Neal and that they both had to be restrained by their wives.
