Melissa’s Picks of the Week

New Artist Alert!

Check out 18-year-old singer and rapper, Doja Cat straight from Los Angeles, California! Her new single “So High” is as freakishly whimsical and cool as Grace Jones in the 70s. Her blue skin, soulful voice and 70s hippie look makes it hard not remember her. To me, she’s organically portrayed as “ART”. Many would probably say she is reminds them of a mixture of M.I.A., Jhene Aiko and Amy Winehouse. But overall she is just intoxicating. Watch her new music video by clicking the link below!!

Fact Attack!!

Good for Kohl’s, Bad for Juicy

Juicy Couture, known for its exclusive velour and terry cloth loungewear, is now taking a dive in to the common world. Fifth and Pacific, formerly known as Liz Claiborne, had once acquired Juicy Couture but then sold them to ABG (Authentic Brands Group) who then negotiated a deal to sell Juicy to Kohl’s! In simpler words, Juicy Couture is no longer a stand alone store but will now be sold at their sole seller, Kohl’s. (Read the full article in the link below)

Janelle Monae!!

I’m so used to seeing Janelle decked in tailored tuxedos and Oxford’s. Although her signature look is always astonishing, I must admit, it is refreshing to see her in a different ensemble. It’s still her but its different. Go Janelle!

Pharrell William partners with Adidas!

“Happy” artist, Pharrell has been doing exceptionally well in his fashion ventures. He has already collaborated with Moncler, G-Star, Uniqlo and Commes Des Garcons. Now he’s joining hands with Adidas Originals for long-term purposes. ““Adidas is giving me a great opportunity to develop products which I love and will also be using Bionic Yarn and is more of a partnership than a collaboration as we look to work together for the next few years,” he said. Although Adidas works with other well-known designers like Rick Owens and Stella McCartney, Pharrell says he feels no pressure and he is looking forward to learning and producing his greatest work. Well congrats to you Pharrell. We’re all looking forward to seeing your new collection! Read the full article in the link below!
