THE WEBSTER OPENS ITS NEWEST LOCATION IN NYC

With the store originating from the tropics of South Beach and having expanded to Houston, Costa Mesa, and Bal Harbour—it was only natural for The Webster to house their new location in the heart of New York City’s, Soho. Laure Heriard Dubreuil, founder of the luxury retailer, has mirrored the same opulent brand formula with a new ingredient—Webster Home. The six story building will handle pieces by Italian artist Gaetano Pesce, Pierre Frey fabrics that are exclusive to The Webster, and Nada Debs brass candy colored pebble table. Throughout the renovation of their new location The Webster befriended Maxi Cohen, photographer, video artist, and neighbor whose piece is now featured on the third floor.

The store is thoughtfully filled with French 50’s sconce lights and wall papers from the 20’s and 30’s and does the historical 1878, 12,000-square-foot building proud. Turn of the century light wells guide you onto a vintage loading dock entrance, and step out into a room that’s a fusion of new and retrograded pieces mirroring the original Webster store, which was redeveloped with the help and design of Christopher Osvai.

Filling the six floored location are thirty male designers and 68 women designers, including but not limited to Isa Arfen, Julien David, and jewelry by Anita Ko, The Webster combines high end clothing interwoven amongst art deco and one of a kind installations. Sculptures such as Aaron Young’s “Below the Underdog, 2010” is set amongst thoughtfully chosen menswear on the fourth floor.

HERE’S HOW TO HELP HOUSTON

The roots of IRIS Covet Book are planted in Houston, and it breaks our hearts to see the impact that this storm has had on the citizens of Texas. With more rainfall and subsequent damage, health risks, and loss of life and property to come, it will be an upward battle for the resilient Lone Star state. Luckily, many celebrities, philanthropists, activists, politicians, etc. have reached out and donated to relief funds all over the country. Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook has promised to match donations for relief through the Center of Disaster Philanthropy for up to a million dollars, Kim Kardashian and her family have pledged $500,000, and many other notable figures have gone even beyond that in order to help those in need.

In a statement to the Houston Chronicle, Beyoncé said, “My heart goes out to my hometown, Houston, and I remain in constant prayer for those affected and for the rescuers who have been so brave and determined to do so much to help. I am working closely with my team at BeyGOOD as well as my pastor [Rudy Rasmus at St. John’s in downtown Houston] to implement a plan to help as many as we can.”

In these uncertain times of what seems like constant breaking news and socio-political strife, it is heart-warming to know that even when things seem to be the darkest, we can count on each other to shed light and give aid. In the meantime, during these recovery efforts, we can continue to donate, volunteer, and pray for a speedy recovery to those affected.

SUPREME X LOUIS VUITTON

Supreme has emerged as a player in the world of high fashion. The evolution from a skateboarding supply store in 1994 to an internationally recognized streetwear powerhouse, Supreme has constantly impressed and acted as a pioneer in the fashion industry. The cult-like following often elects to pay double or triple the retail price of the clothes in order to attain the highly coveted pieces via resale sites, such as eBay or Grailed. With its most recent collaboration, Supreme has elected to once again push its limits and enter the world of high fashion. The new collaboration with Parisian fashion titan Louis Vuitton features bags, jackets, scarves, tees, and accessories.

THEM PANTS AINT EVEN COMING OUT THO

Louis Vuitton and Supreme have shared history dating back to 2000, when Louis Vuitton sued the NY streetwear brand for mimicking its iconic monogram design on their skateboard decks. Despite their tumultuous introduction, the collaboration has managed to meld two seemingly polarized audiences into a cult following. Similarly, brands such as Vetements have sold collaborations with Champion, as well as many other seemingly incongruous brands, by taking the norm and making it into a luxury artifact. In this recent collaboration, pieces such as the Red Louis Vuitton trunks outfitted with the famous Supreme box logo, the monogrammed denim jackets, and the infamous Supreme/Louis Vuitton box logo tee have come under fire for their high prices, but said high prices don’t seem to deter the fans. In fact, the luxury price point and limited quantity inspire even more frenzied competition.

The pop-up shops, located in Seoul, Tokyo, Beijing, Paris, London, Miami, Houston, and Los Angeles, generated colossal lines within hours of their announcement. These pop-up shops are the first opportunity that the public has to purchase items from this collection, and fans are determined to be a part of the historic collaboration. However, Louis Vuitton has stated that the release will be extremely limited, indicating that the fervor is not for naught. The mania has caused streets to shut down, and police intervention has been necessary in order to keep streets and sidewalks clear. Supreme has proven that it is able to thrive in the ever-changing world of fashion, and cement itself as a heavyweight contender in the luxury and streetwear worlds today.
