New Balance New Gender-Neutral Collection

The beloved sportswear brand New Balance has just dropped a new gender-neutral collection. This exciting new launch has a muted colour range, not excluding black of course. The inclusive fits are meant to flatter any and everybody. With boxy tees, slouchy joggers, compression bike shorts, cosy crewnecks and hoodies. The fabrics are a cotton blend, some french terry cloth and more.

The brand’s Australian ambassador Tash Sultana gave their take on the unisex essentials saying,

“There has and always will be people like me who don’t fit into the typical gender norms. We have always felt a divide in the world by not being represented and being told we either need to dress like a girl or act like a boy.”

She continues, “New Balance is a brand that is taking a step into the future by supporting gender inclusivity, and I’ve been proudly wearing my Uni-ssentials apparel range and XC-72 sneakers since they launched.”

New Balance has a refreshing approach with this collection, carefully constructing the clothing to be with overlapping measurements from traditional men’s and woman’s clothing. Instead of the oversized and overdone silhouettes most unisex clothing offers. These clothes are truly versatile and wearable for all.

Kith Women New Aaliyah Inspired Capsule Collection

Kith Women Launches New Aaliyah Collection Featuring Never-Before-Seen Photos


Launching on International Women’s Day, Kith Women unveils a new capsule collection inspired by the late great R&B singer Aaliyah. Never before seen images of Aaliyah appear throughout the compilation of the collection which partners with photographer Robert Whitman.

Most notably, it is created in partnership with the Aaliyah Estate and Aaliyah’s brother, Rashad Haughton. Rashad praises the recent collaboration saying, “Aaliyah was born in Brooklyn, grew up in Detroit, and went on to touch the whole world with her light and creativity,”. He further states, “That’s why I felt that Kith would be the perfect partner to release unseen photos of my sister on their incredible fashion designs.”

It draws inspiration from the singer’s time at Detroit School of Arts. This is where she graduated with a 4.0 GPA. The brand also put forward a short film in Detroit, highlighting the school’s dance team and other creatives.

The brand continues to pay homage to the One in a million singer, with 100% of the proceeds going to Aaliyah’s alma mater, the Detroit School of Arts, and the organization “I Support Girls” – which donates hygiene products and bra’s to homeless women.

As for the pieces in the collection, they’re based on Aaliyah’s iconic style. There are hoodies, crop tops, unisex vintage style graphic tees and more.

Mugler x The Webster Collab

Blush flavoured classic Mugler silhouettes are the theme for this new capsule. Mugler collaborates with The Webster to bring a new collection that is based on their well known pink hue. Made up of 10 pieces, the beloved french fashion house teamed up with popular global retailer, The Webster, to curate some mega sexy designs.

Casey Cadwallader, Mugler’s creative director, updates the brand’s core aesthetic into the future with a few new modern pieces. Casey stay’s true to Mugler’s values, making clothes that keep the form with the female body seamlessly.

Laure Hériard Dubreuil, founder and CEO of The Webster tells Grazia, “We are so excited and honored to create this exclusive moment with Mugler, highlighting the beautiful, avant-garde, and most importantly, inclusive direction led by Casey. This capsule was designed in mind to complement one’s natural beauty, a theme that both of our brands so profoundly resonate with.”

Cadwallader reveals the mindset behind the collab saying, “Our capsule collection features and celebrates The Webster’s signature pink; I wanted to make The Webster’s clients feel seen and special.” We couldn’t agree more!

“My old flex is my new flex now and we’re workin’ on it”, to quote Drake’s lyrics is only proper for the new Adidas Yeezy slides. The drop has 3 new colours, Onyx, Pure, and Ochre. This popular footwear breaks tradition, with traditional colourways in black or dark hues. Though, it stays true to its roots with ultra-comfortable EVA foam material.

Bad Bunny x Adidas Response CL “Cream White”

Speaking of Adidas, Latin rapper/pop star, Bad Bunny just released a sneaker inspired by the retro design of sneakers past.

Adidas offers more clarity stating on Instagram,

“We’ve teamed back up with @badbunnypr once again to introduce his latest Response CL sneaker. Inspired by early-2000’s trail sneakers the collab is an ode to timelessness and creativity without boundaries,”.

The designs come in two versions, the yellow/core black/bold orange colourway and the newest, a lowkey cream white/off-white/sand. Bad Bunny’s signature ‘el ojo’, the eye, the motif is referenced in the design on the heel. There’s also a melting heart embroidered on the toe. In fact, the melting/dripping aspect is a major theme throughout the design of the shoe. Mesh and leather-looking materials are used as accents on the chunk sneaker. Take a look and see if they fit your aesthetic!

Larroudé x Oscar de la Renta Collab

Gorgeous! That’s all we have to say about the highly anticipated release between Oscar de la Renta and Larroudé. The form comes by way of the latter, with the ever-stylish Miso chunky platform sandals, Cali mules, and Ivy slides. This is for Spring 2022, so reliably it channels florals. That’s where ODLR comes in, providing all the prints. The sunny textures feature magnolias, reimagined pastels, and painter-like patterns from ODLR.

Marina Larroudé, the brand’s founder, gushes about the collab saying, “Oscar de la Renta is an iconic brand, the ultimate American heritage brand…As a burgeoning young label with big dreams and even bigger ambitions, we couldn’t have dreamed of a better partner. It was a pleasure to work alongside the super talented duo of Laura and Fernando in creating shoes for the modern woman, who appreciates design, quality, and craftsmanship. It really is a dream come true to see the collection come to life.”


Candy Drip Album by Lucky Daye

R&B to it’s core, that’s the best description of the new album released by New Orleans crooner Lucky Daye. Man oh man does he deliver on giving r&b lovers exactly what we’ve been craving. Like Summer Walker to Giveon, Lucky stays true to old school styles while incorporating the lo-fi groove we’ve familiarized ourselves with by way of the sound cloud era. This is the artist’s sophomore album, and it includes features from Lil Durk, Khalid, and 6lack.

“Candy Drip focuses mostly on flavors,” Lucky Daye explains, “and the idea of flavors versus Painted, which was about colors. These are a bunch of different flavors of songs, giving you ear candy in different ways.”

The silky sultry title track, ‘Candy Drip’, lands in the middle of the 17 track album. The body of work follows the highs and lows of a romantic relationship, which results in a lot of variety. “NWA” is the song Daye did with Lil’ Durk, is one of the more alternative sounds. Of course, it has trap themes, what Durk is known for, and Daye comes through with a braggadocious version of himself. The single ‘Over’ is the #1 song on Daye’s artist profile on Spotify. And it uses acoustic guitars and a bluesy bass to showcase the toxicity in the relationship the body of work is based on.

He samples Usher’s ‘You don’t have to call’ for ‘Guess’, a song where Daye really lets his incredible vocal range take the spotlight. It’s smooth classic r&b at its finest.

Throughout the work, Daye gives us variety in pitch, spoken word, rap and a complete story that literally doesn’t miss a beat. There’s a nice mellow break-in “Compassionate” – an easy listen that sets the stage for the album’s finale track ‘Ego’. The closer, “Ego”, has angelic choirs in the background as Daye comes to the realization that it’s okay not to know. He embraces the mysterious unknown with resolution and takes solace in uncertainty in a way that feels very warm.

Unwrap “Candy Drip” and submerge yourself in the deep yet easy to follow the body of work. We guarantee it’s worth the listen!


Movies and TV Shows

The Adam Project Movie Starring Ryan Reynolds

Netflix just released a new movie starring Ryan Reynolds as a time-travelling action hero, duh! The adventure-comedy is entertaining through and through and appropriate for all audiences. The family-friendly movie stars Zoe Saldana as an action star in her own right, but also predictably as the love interest.

There’s nothing groundbreaking by way of sci-fi, as the time travel theme is made easy to understand and not really the main message of the film. The underlying theme of accepting life at all its stages is literally shown by adult Adam meeting his 12-year-old self in the exciting story. It’s packed full of self-realizations, satire and the various connections between parental love, childhood woes and heartfelt relationships.

The movie boasts a stellar cast of Ryan Reynolds, Mark Ruffalo, Jennifer Garner, Catherine Keener, Zoe Saldana and child actor Walker Scobell. ‘The Adam Project’ is an easy watch that is entertaining all around, combining sci-fi, adventure and comedy all into one action-packed movie.

Severance: A New Series Directed by Ben Stiller

Severance - Rotten Tomatoes

Apple TV has just released a fascinating new series, “Severance”, directed by Ben Stiller. While Stiller is normally known for his work in comedy, this channels something far more intriguing. The plot: a team of office workers whose memories have been surgically divided, or severed, between their work life and their personal life.

It is being called a masterpiece and has gotten rave reviews far and wide. Mark is the series main character, he is the team leader and a model worker, thanks to undergoing the ‘severance’ procedure aforementioned above. However, he begins to question where he works when a new rival comes into play. If you want to know more you’ll have to give it a watch when you get a chance.
