This week in fashion…Fashionnova x Megan Thee Stallion, IVY PARK ( Black Pack ) & STÜSSY 40th Anniversary.

All looks in this video have been styled and arranged by JMADDD STYLES.

Hello everyone out there as always it’s good to see you, I AM JMADDD STYLES for those not to familiar with this blog site. I would like to take this time out as always to welcome you to my latest blog post, This week in fashion. There were a few new Fashionably Noteworthy releases that hit this week , that were worth taking a look at , first we have the new collaboration between Megan Thee Stallion and Fashionnova , a moderately priced line that is made up mostly of a lot of trendy pieces pretty much fits into the disposable fashion category, but I’m sure it’s going to sell well enough to get at least another season out of the line.

Then from there we jump back into a little more from Beyoncé and her ADIDAS x IVY PARK collaboration where she did a surprise drop known as The Drip 2.2 Black Pack. Where she dropped another color way of her line in all black and beige and some hints of grey.

Then last I jump into the 40th Anniversary collection from STÜSSY, titled the STÜSSY WORLD TOUR COLLECTION. For this new commemorative collection STÜSSY collaborates with five influential designers that have all had a part in being an inspiration to the brand over the years, who are those designers ? Well you got to check the video above. To shop the looks in the above video,http://www.stussy.com , http://www.adidas.com and http://www.fashionnova.com

The MANDALORIAN COLLECTION.

Hello everyone out there as always it’s good to see you. I AM JMADDD STYLES , and this is New & Fashionably Noteworthy Collaborations. If you are familiar with this website and blog , then you know there is nothing that I like better than a good fashionable collaboration. In this case today we two new fashionable collaborations. The first coming from a clothing brand that has truly mastered the art of fashionably collaborating with other companies. That brand being SUPREME and it’s latest collaborative project , SUPREME x THE NORTH FACE. This new fall 2020 collaboration is not the first time that these two brands have worked together , but when they do come together to create a collaborative brand each time they create a very well put together collaborative effort. Although the items are not cheap or moderately priced , for the true SUPREME fan this is something major to look forward to.

Then the second collaboration that I’m covering is from ADIDAS , now this has been a very busy week for collaborations from ADIDAS, this week we have seen the release of Beyoncé’s second ADIDAS x IVY PARK Collection which had a very successful opening day online . Now jut in time for the premiere for The MANDALORIAN season two , ADIDAS has just released another STAR WARS inspired sneaker collection, called THE MANDALORIAN COLLECTION.

All looks in this video have been styled and arranged by JMADDD STYLES.

Now that’s you have see today’s fashionable video , breaking down these two major collaborations, the real question is , what do you think ? In my professional opinion , it’s a really good presentation for both companies it just all depends on what your looking for. However as usual…I LET YOU TELL IT… To shop the looks in this video you can log onto http://www.adidas.com or http://www.supremenewyork.com .

The Fashion Follow up : Drip 2 : ADIDAS x IVY PARK: Pt 2.

Hello everyone out there , as always it’s good to see you. I AM JMADDD STYLES , and I would like to take this time out to welcome you to my latest blog post. The Fashion Follow Up: Drip 2 : ADIDAS x IVY PARK: Pt 2 . This is the follow up to my previous blog post, where I gave you a Sneak Peek of the fourth coming new season of ADIDAS x IVY PARK. Well I’m back this time to give you a more detailed look at the new collection, as it hit online yesterday on 10/29/20 and in stores today 10/30/20. So what I have done is taken what I think are the more standout pieces from the collection and styled new womenswear and menswear looks to give you a little style inspiration on how to put the new pieces together. That is if you were fortunate enough to snag something before it sold out within minutes online yesterday and I’m almost certain the same thing happened in retail today. With that said , let’s now take a look at the all new season of ADIDAS x IVY PARK.

All looks are styled and arranged by JMADDD STYLES.

Now that you have had a look at the new collection, what do you think ? This is usually where I would generally tell you…I LET YOU TELL IT , but this time I’m going to give you my fashionable opinion. Looking at the color ways, and some of the new pieces added to the collection for this new season, I have to say that I think it looks better than the original first season or Drop/Drip 1. In my professional opinion if Beyoncé continues on this current path that she is on with her IVY PARK collection , it will continue to expand and only get better as long as she doesn’t try to deviate to far from what made the collection successful in the first place. Which is the formula that most successful clothing companies have followed to maintain both longevity and a loyal fan base. So hats off to Beyoncé and her collaboration with Adidas. Also the price point for the line is fairly reasonable ranging from 25$ upwards to 200$.

Well there it is , we have just come to the end of yet another blog post, as always , I hope you have enjoyed reading it , just as much as I enjoyed presenting it. If this is your first time tuning into this blog then I hope to see you back here soon in the near future. All of the looks that you have seen in the video can be shopped at http://www.adidas.com . I AM JMADDD STYLES , and this has been , The Fashion Follow Up : Drip 2 : ADIDAS x IVY PARK : Pt 2 . That’s it for now , so until the next time…IM GONE…!!!

New & Fashionably noteworthy collaborations: YEEZY x GAP.

New & Fashionably noteworthy collaborations: YEEZY x GAP.

Hello everyone out there, as always it’s good to see you, I AM JMADDD STYLES and I would like to welcome you to my latest blog post, New & Fashionably noteworthy collaborations: YEEZY x GAP. If you are familiar with this blog , then you know as I have often said , There is nothing I like better than a good fashionable collaboration. The fashionable collaboration that I am speaking of today is one that seemed like it was a long time coming. This new collaboration in question is Kanye West’s YEEZY brand and GAP coming together to form YZY , the new more affordable YEEZY collection set to be released in 2021. This new partnership is set to be for a ten year deal , the collection will consist of elevated men’s, women’s and children’s pieces. The collection will not have any shoes or sneakers included, and along with West’s creative direction, the new head designer of the collection will be the Nigerian-British designer, Mowalola Ogunlesi. The fairly new designer has a garnered a cult following from her designs over the past few years. But really gained notability once Naomi Campbell was spotted wearing one of her designs last year at a London Fashion Week event . There is a lot of excitement being generated around this new upcoming collection, as West’s collaboration with Adidas has done extremely well in addition to his YEEZY fashion label which is now in it’s eighth season. I have to say that I myself am looking forward to seeing this new collaborative effort hit stores and online myself but until that I guess we will just have to hurry up and wait. But here is a look at some of the previous season’s from the YEEZY collection and his Adidas collaboration.

All looks are styled and arranged by JMADDD STYLES.

Fashion between the panels: Krush Groove

Fashion between the panels: Krush Groove

Hello everyone out there as always it’s good to see you . I AM JMADDD STYLES , and I would like to welcome you to my latest blog post. Fashion between the panels : Krush Groove, for this latest installment of this ongoing blog series, im taking you back in time to 1985 to a groundbreaking film in Hiphop history to show you how the fashion that you saw on screen back then would currently translate into looks for right now. If you have never seen this film and you call yourself a fan of The Culture of Hiphop, then you are doing yourself a great disservice. So after reading this be sure to make it a priority to see this film. So right now im going to take the main characters from the film and break down how their fashionable Influence from then still could work today right now at this very minute. So with that said, let’s get this fashionable party started with……

Sheila E :

At This time period it was one thing to have a film that brought all your favorite Hiphop stars to the big screen, but it was a whole other level for an R&B star to be in the movie with them. That R&B star was the one and only Sheila E. whom back then was apart of the Prince movement and known for her cutting edge style already.

From The hair to the clothes, this look that you are seeing on her in the above pictures, translated as just plain cool with a touch of sexy on the screen, but how would this look translate to right now ?

To style this look for a modern feel , you have to go head to toe leather , the jacket that Sheila E. is wearing gives you a Moto-style kind of vibe , so that’s where the look would start, from there if you look at her pants they are 2 toned, so to capture that I went with a color blocked pair of leather pants accessorized the look with leather gloves and finished the look off with color blocked boots and multi layer pearl necklace to capture and finish her exact look .

Then there was this look from her hit single in the movie Holly Rock. This is a look that could, easily translate from then to now ,

The look was already cutting edge , but to make more for now , didn’t take much. Changed the blouse out for a more dramatic style , and add the suede ankle boot finish the look with a sequin half glove instead of the one long glove , which would have been still cool to go with. Perfectly capturing a more modern version of Sheila E ‘s look.

Kurtis Blow :

At This time in Hiphop, Kurtis Blow was known as The King of Rap. He was the show stopper and the showman. Whenever you saw Kurtis Blow he was dressed 80’s fresh. He was wearing the suits , and the best leather fashions as you can see in the pic above.

A good leather look never goes out of style , that’s why taking Kurtis Blow’s look from 80’s fresh to new era fly won’t be difficult at all , it just takes the right eye and good fashionable vision.

The look that I wanted to style and reinvent is his classic look from the movie seen above. I did 3 variations of the same look using two different T-shirts and the top hat is optional, creating a truly modernized version of Kurtis Blow’s Krush Groove look.

The Fat Boys :

In this movie , The Fat Boys or The Disco Three were kind of the comic relief of the film , although all the hits that they had over the years were no kind of joke. There style in the film was not well defined

other than the fact that it was cool and trendy for the time , but if you take a really good look , the trendiness of then still works now

notice the Dapper Dan looks right here , and unless you just plain live under a non fashionable rock , you know that Dapper Dan is back bigger and better than ever.

with an all new Gucci collection and collaboration, with a look that picks back up right where it left off years ago like it never left. More bold and flashier than ever and definitely more expensive than ever , but hey it’s Gucci.

RUN DMC :

Talking about a group that truly defined a look when it comes to Hiphop, they were a group with a lot of fashion firsts they basically defined an era

almost pretty much monopolized an entire style from the signature leather suits , to the sweat suits , all the way to being the first to make you notice what a fedora was .

Not To mention the jewelry, they were the absolute first to ware the big gold chains or truck jewelry, the group was both music and style icons. But their most defining look was the Adidas sweatsuit and shell toe sneakers with the classic fedora.

A Look that is still relevant today and dosen’t require any real modernization or tweaking, it’s still just as cool now as it was then , of course the hat is optional. But you cannot see this look and not be reminded of RUN DMC.

LL COOL J :

Now LL didn’t have a huge role in this film , but the few minutes that he was in the movie , created a lasting memory in Hiphop history. That would be because it was the first time you could put a face to the then 16 yr old rapper that already had a hit on the radio called I need a beat.

Even though he was so young then , he still defined a signature style , that style being the Kangol bucket hat with the jeans and the Polo style shirt. Seems simple enough but the look became synonymous with LL COOL J.

This look also stood the test of time and still holds strong for today , of course back then more than likely he was wearing an IZOD LACOSTE, which is still hot till this day with it’s signature alligator logo. When I recreated and restyled the look , I preferred to use the Ralph Lauren Polo shirt with the Ralph Lauren jeans and jacket. Finishing the look with a classic pair of Nike Air Max and of course the hat is optional.

Russell Simmons:

An interesting fact about this film is that Russell Simmons or then Russell Rush was the only character in the film that was not played by himself or the actual person. Even his then partner in starting Def Jam , Rick Reuben also pictured above , still played himself. Instead at the time it was Blaire Underwood that portrayed the role of The godfather of Hiphop, the one and only Russell Simmons. The look that you see him wearing above would kind of become a signature look for Russell Simmons in years to come , although the look pictured is very 80’s , it could be slightly changed and restyled to fit one of Russell Simon’s signature looks.

Giving you the suit and tennis shoes combination, the key to this look is having the right suit and the right sneaker that will pair together. In this case the corduroy suit is the perfect fit for a casual sneaker , and for an authentic 80’s feel throw in the knit tie.

It was never really said why Russell Simmons didn’t portray himself in the film but for a long time until you got a look at the actual person, the name Russell Rush almost seemed synonymous with Blaire Underwood’s face.

Well their it is , we have once again come to the end of yet another blog post, I hope you enjoyed it and look forward to seeing you again for my next upcoming one. I AM JMADDD STYLES and this has been Fashion between the panels : KRUSH GROOVE. That’s it for now, so until the next time IM GONE…!!!
