While we wait for big corporations and governmental change, we can all do a little better For many of us, waiting for big corporations and government sectors to take responsibility for the damage being done to our planet isn’t quite enough. We can all make small but significant changes through our routines—even if it’s just taking the time to read a label to see if …
I cannot stress enough how too long this movie is, too meandering, too indulgent, too everything other than actually interesting.

Model: Blackburn SPZL
Key Features: The adidas Blackburn SPZL is the newest addition to the brand’s iconic City Series line of footwear. Its green and red colorway is inspired by the red rose of Lancashire and named after the town where Gary Aspden, creator of the adidas Spezial range, grew up. A ‘Nightsafe’ edition, which is limited to just 200 pairs, features a Nightsafe logo on its footbed in honor of the local charity that provides support to homeless youth in Blackburn.
Release Date: FW19
Buy: The Nightsafe edition will be available exclusively at the adidas SPEZIAL exhibition at the British Textile Biennial.
Editor’s Notes: adidas Originals today announced the lead release from its Spezial FW19 range, the all-new Blackburn SPZL. Designed by Gary Aspden and named after the town he grew up in, the Blackburn SPZL will be available in two versions, a regular retail version and a special ‘Nightsafe’ version. The latter will be available at a special Spezial exhibition at the British Textile Biennial from October 4 to October 20 and is limited to just 200 pairs. All proceeds will benefit Nightsafe, a local charity that supports homeless and vulnerably housed young people in the Blackburn with Darwen area.
Archivist and adidas collaborator Gary Aspden once again looks to substance and storytelling over hype for this latest adidas Blackburn makeup. Establishing himself as a juxtaposition to other adidas collaborators like Pharrell Williams or Kanye West, Aspden’s design narratives often revolve around UK culture.
Check out the Blackburn SPZL above, as well as a preview of the Spezial exhibition below, where over 1000 pairs of Spezial footwear will be on show.

Rap collective BROCKHAMPTON go undercover in a new episode of GQ’s series “Actually Me.” The clip sees the group creating new user accounts on sites such as Twitter, Reddit, and YouTube, and diving into the depths of comment sections to answer real questions. Watch above.
Throughout the ten-minute long clip Kevin Abstract crowd sources answers from the rest of the group. Some of the question highlights include, “i love brockhampton! how does he do all those different voices??? really dope!!,” “how many one direction references does brockhampton make?” and “Paul Rudd in BROCKHAMPTON?”
In response to the Rudd question, it turns out Abstract has a pretty cute anecdote about the actor — apparently Rudd took the rapper aside to congratulate him on one of his solo albums. It also looks like Meryln needs to brush up on his Marvel knowledge as he said, “Paul Rudd said he said he wants us to join the Justice League,” before being corrected by Romil Hemnani. “Avengers, bro!”
Watch the video above.
Directed by Chris Villa and shot in the French Rivera, the scenic-video is as luxe as the rapper’s lyrics. “Ooh, this shit bliss, I’m so rich / Mille on my wrist / Versace boxers on my dick / Bud Light runnin’ through my piss / On a yacht, 50 meters it’s a fish / 50 carats on my fist,” he raps while wearing a custom Louis Vuitton utility vest. At one point he’s shown standing before a fleet of sports cars — which may or may not be parked outside of his home in Utah.
Malone’s third studio album Hollywood’s Bleeding dropped last week and is stacked with great tracks including “Goodbyes” featuring Young Thug and “Sunflower” with Swae Lee, which appeared on the Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse soundtrack. Revisit the album here.

The next stop on the Moncler Genius World Tour is presented by London-born designer Richard Quinn. The latest rendition of the “one house, different voices” philosophy, Quinn brings his typically bold and fearless design language to another unstoppable Moncler Genius collection.
Manifested in bright and unapologetic patterns, Quinn’s silhouettes reference the elegance of ‘50s and ‘60s couture. When combined with Moncler’s typically functional apparel and accessories, the result is visually striking and deliberately kitsch.
The antithesis of the minimalist style heralded by Apple and Scandinavian brands, the collection represents maximalism from head-to-toe and is made to be worn in a mix and match manner that relishes a clash of prints.
Signature design cues include puffy duvet across everything from opera coats to thing-high boots, jewels on sleeves, clasps, and buttons, and bold lettering spelling out Moncler.
The Moncler Genius World Tour takes the Moncler Genius project to new heights, giving each designer collaboration its own dedicated launch event in a unique city. As someone smart once said, “brands are the new bands,” and Moncler is giving each collection its own one-off tour date.
We asked the cofounders of the Center for American Politics and Design to critique the best and worst branding of this crowded Democratic field.
Tonight’s Democratic debate will feature a whopping 11 different candidates, all vying to be the Democratic nominee for president in 2020. There are already plenty of breakdowns on their policies. But what’s been missing from the conversation, in our humble opinion, is a superficial—perhaps even petty—breakdown of their branding. Which of the candidates has the best logo? And which has the worst?
