G-Dragon collaborates with Nike for a limited edition of Air Force 1s

Head’s up G-Dragon fans, the K-Pop superstar is releasing a Nike shoe, in collaboration with his personal fashion brand, Peaceminusone. Coined “Para-noise’, the sneaker is painted in black (which is said to fade over time), plus raw brush strokes visible on the midsole. Its most striking feature is the red swoosh in red leather and embroidered daisy details on the tongue, and branded thick laces. The Peaceminusone x Nike Air Force 1 is set to be released on 23 November 2019.

Queen Elizabeth II goes fur-free

With fashion’s crusade against fur, the British royal family is following suit with the recent announcement of Her Majesty’s decision to stop wearing fur…well, sort of. The caveat being that the queen won’t be ridding her ceremonial robes and other official garments that are lined with fur. Other new ensembles worn by the queen will use faux fur instead. A victory for cruelty-free fashion! However, according to Giles Roca, chief executive of the British Fur Trade Association: “Faux fur, fake fur, plastic fur is actually far worse for the environment than natural fur”, he mentions on BBC Radio 4‘s Today programme. According to Roca, natural fur takes 30 days to break down whereas faux fur takes about 1,000 years. Faux fur versus real fur-which would you go for?

Continuing the UTme series, the illustrations are based on the artist’s beloved canine character, Chaigo. The sticker series sees a collection of ten designs depicting the turquoise doggo and his furry paws throwing up positive hand gestures such as the peace sign, a thumb’s up and the trending heart sign. Customise your T-shirt or tote with the stickers, exclusively available at Uniqlo Fahrenheit 88.
