Popcaan previews a new banger and links to supermodel Naomi Campbell in Paris.

After hitting the streets of London, Popcaan flew to Paris ahead of Paris Fashion Week. The Unruly Boss are currently on tour and living their best life in the process. Last weekend he made headlines for his kind gesture of giving young Malta fans a shopping spree. The Jamaican artist performed to a sold-out crowd at Dream Weekend before flying to London for another show while joining celebrity friends in the UK.

On Thursday, Popcaan shared a hilarious clip of himself trying out a new pair of kicks. It’s unclear what brand it was, but it’s clear the dancehall deejay was cutting on looks. “Has that feet name,” Poppy said. Fans have been asking him for more photos wearing the boots, but it looks like the artist is saving them for a big occasion.

“Killy out in Paris,” he wrote.

Popcaan also shared several photos of him in Paris meeting model Naomi Campbell and also hanging out with rapper Bamby and some members of his Unruly outfit, including Cobe Unruly. Of course, you can’t be in the fashion capital of the world and not show off your own gear, so Poppy released a promo clip showing off hoodies from her Unruly store.

In this promo clip, Popcaan previews an unreleased song. “Prada and Fendi, likkle plus me dress in a fully unruly, Fold it on the right of if fi me Trudy, kill me hate them and go smooth, Prada me Prada, Gucci Me Gucci, gal see me and waan run the coochie, shot in your mouth because you talk to yourself so vaguely, you gave me cologne like bruce lee…money longer than hope road”, Popcaan deejay.

In terms of music, the dancehall star recently landed a collaboration with rapper Post Malone. The collaboration will add to Popcaan’s international credits having previously worked with artists like Drake, Gorillaz, PARTYNEXTDOOR, Jorja Smith, Burna Boy, Davido, Jamie xx, Megan Thee Stallion, and more.

The St. Thomas DJ is also working on his new album, tentatively titled Great Is He. A release date for the project is not yet available, but fans can expect it to hit streaming services later this year or early next year.

How did you decide what to wear for the premiere?

“My stylist Ryan Young knows me so well that it’s always hard to choose my favourite. I went for this Prada dress because it looked the most like me and also matched the energy of the show.

How did your look make you feel?

“I felt the most myself and confident and fun wearing it. It was the perfect mix of fun, class, daring and sexy.

What about hair and makeup – which direction did you want to go?

“Nikki DeRoest and Mara Roszak were the geniuses behind the hair and makeup. We wanted this bling-up Prada dress to be timeless while still maintaining its edgy edge, so we went for a kind of Bridget Bardot-inspired look.

Where did you prepare? Who did you prepare with?

“I had my sister in town and my two close friends as well as my manager so it was a party. It’s always nice to be surrounded by friends and family to calm the jitters and the nerves.

What was your favorite part of being Lucy?

“I could go on forever. Lucy’s emotional journey is one of the most complex and relevant stories. I think everyone will find a part of themselves.

Any fashion girl will tell you: international brands are where they are. Iconic fashion houses like Gucci, Prada, Chanel and more are still trailblazers to this day, while more affordable options like Zara, Mango and Ganni are stepping up their offerings by staying even more on top of their friends (and creating new ones!). From the viral green Zara dress that made waves this summer to Ganni’s signature oversized collared look, it’s easier than ever to stand out and find your own unique sense of fashion on a budget.

One of my favorite things about fashion is that if you have your eye on it, it doesn’t matter how much you spend on your pieces. The best looks are paired with a mix of high and low items that complement the personality of the wearer. With luxury brands, it’s best to invest in a piece that you know how to use consistently and in styles that stand the test of time. Don’t hit the buy button too quickly for on-trend bag or shoe styles that won’t be in season next year. The same goes for (faster) fashion brands; you don’t want to buy something affordable only to wear it a few times, only to be sent to the donation bin.

With that in mind, more and more international brands are offering unique styles at all price points, and right now, international brands are hotter than ever. Here are some of the brands we’re buying right now and the best standout pieces to invest in to help you build your wardrobe over time.

1.Prada

Prada

Prada was launched in 1913 in Milan, Italy, selling only travel accessories like bags and luggage. Since then, it has moved into the space of clothing, footwear and even beauty with its fragrances.

I’m obsessed with every piece Prada has released recently that has the triangle logo on it. It’s so chic – can’t you just imagine stepping out with your shoulder bag, socks and loafers for dinner with the girls? I need this ASAP.

2. Gucci

Gucci Loafers

Gucci House somebody? Although this brand has a sordid history, it has been a coveted mainstay of the fashion industry since its launch in 1921 by Guccio Gucci.

Remember those loafers I mentioned above? It doesn’t look like this trend is going out of style anytime soon. It’s a great staple item to invest in that’s sure to evolve with the seasons.

3.Chanel

Chanel sweater

Chanel is practically synonymous with Paris, and it was founded there in 1910, when it was still considered ~wild~ for women to wear blouses with pants. Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel began designing hats and quickly branched out into ready-to-wear, creating both elegant and comfortable clothing for women, emerging from an era when women’s clothing was still very restrictive.

Chanel is a must-have brand to this day, with its coveted handbags selling for an average of $5,000 to $10,000. This dreamy cashmere crop top rivals NYC rent, but it’s worth it.

4. Ganni

Ganni

Ganni was founded in 2000 as a cashmere line, but it wasn’t until husband and wife Nicolaj and Ditte Reffstrup joined the helm in 2009 that the brand began to gain prominence as a ready-to-wear brand. -à-porter selling dresses, tops and more.

Today, Ganni is infamous for its whimsical collars, basic tees and dresses for all occasions. Vests as tops are all the rage for the summer-fall transition, and this one costs just under $200.

5. Zara

Many people do not know that Zara is a brand founded in 1975 in Spain. Since then, he has become known for bringing international trends to the United States at an affordable price.

Now that TikTok is here, Zara dresses frequently go viral, and I predict this darted silk dress will be trending for fall.

6. Mango

Mango

Mango is another brand founded in Spain in 1984. Mango is privately owned and is known in the United States for its oversized blazers and trench coats which the brand ships directly from its factory in Spain to its Mango stores around the world.

7.H&M

Knit dress

If you were a fashion girl in the early 2010s, you probably remember the first time you walked into an H&M store and were blown away. For me, it was when I first visited New York, as H&M hadn’t reached small towns in America yet at the time.

H&M is based in Sweden and was founded in 1947 and didn’t come to the US until 2000. This plaid sweater dress is a great representation of the brand that quickly takes current trends and brings them to market for less than $50.

8. Stella McCartney

The way the fashion majors lived and died for Stella McCartney’s Falabella bag when it launched in 2009 is the kind of fashion hit most designers can only dream of. McCartney’s vision of a soft luxury bag that has been not in leather turned out to be a brilliant idea with iconic strength for the brand. Today, McCartney’s designs are still celebrated around the world and if you’re very patient, you can find his designer duds for sale in luxury fashion stores.

9. Yuhan Wang

Yuhan Wang is a London-based Chinese designer who studied fashion design at Central Saint Martins in London before working with brands like JW Anderson and Oscar de la Renta before launching her own eponymous label in 2018.

Her designs aim to explore Asian feminine influences combined with Western culture and the result is a whimsical line of florals, draped patterns and sheer fabrics that look like a dream.

10. Autumn Adeigbo

Celebrities like Florence Pugh, Gabrielle Union and Kerry Washington can’t get enough of the designs of Autumn Adeigbo, who quickly launched her namesake label (launched in 2016) at stores like Bergdorf Goodman, Nordstrom and more. Be sure to check out her dresses and jumpsuits, in addition to her famous platform pumps featured here.

Tis the season – fashion season. New York Fashion Week is underway, with London kicking off on Friday. Then come Milan, then Paris, which form the four big names in fashion. (Copenhagen Fashion Week in August paves the way for Europa League slots.) On Friday, Prada’s co-creative director Raf simons brings his own brand to the London catwalk for the first time.

In 2017, hip-hop collective ASAP Mob released Raf, their tribute to the Belgian designer – including a voice from Frank Ocean, who launched luxury brand, Homer: you may have read about his diamond-studded cock ring of $25,000. For environmental reasons, the diamonds used by Homer are “lab grown” – but less ethical diamonds have been the driving force behind the supercharged uncut gems of the Safdie brothers, starring Adam Sandler and Eric Bogosian go head to head.

Bogosian is one of the dying breed of ’80s New Wave polymaths: a theater maker, playwright, novelist, occasional historian and actor, from Succession to Oliver Stone’s 1988 Relentless Talk Radio, based on the play by Bogosyan. In 1997, he participated in Woody Allen’s caustic Deconstructing Harry, where he met, among others, Bob Balaban.

You’ve seen Bob Balaban (part of his charm is saying the name) in almost everything, but let’s jump to 2001 and Robert AltmanThe last great film from Gosford Park, where Balaban played a director in the English country house thriller. In 1994, Altman tried to do for fashion what he did for Hollywood in The Player (one of his many masterpieces)…

from Altman The star-studded satire of Paris fashion week, Prêt-à-Porter, is frankly a waste, but worth a visit to revisit the glitz of the early ’90s supermodel era. Stephen Rea plays a photographer bawdy – he’s a guy also used in Blow-Up with a David Bailey-style photographer in the 60s. A new independent film revisits the trope: due next month, Everything is vanity fashion and film skewers as an eccentric photographer, his team and a model reunite in a London warehouse. What could go wrong?

Divulging her everyday essentials, Gigi Hadid spoke to Vogue Italia in a video posted today on the publication’s YouTube channel. For nearly eight minutes, the Maybelline ambassador pulled out everything from toiletries and children’s toys to disposable cameras and cashmere swatches from her Prada “Cleo” black leather bag.

The new mom’s top half consisted of a loose blue and white striped button that she wore over her shoulder. The model paired the oversized piece with a white halter tank top. Downstairs, Hadid wore equally baggy high-waisted distressed denim jeans, accessorized with a gold chain necklace and chunky rings to match.

The preview is quick, but a brief frame shows Hadid in chunky white lace-up “dad” sneakers with lugged rubber soles that she paired with long white socks. Chunky sneakers were first popularized in the 1980s for their practicality, comfort, and stability. Although the popularity of the sneaker style slowed in the 2000s, chunky sneakers re-emerged as part of the “ugly” shoe split trend in the late 2010s, attracting attention across all genres.

Among a Lanegie lip sleep mask, a small bottle of Cholula hot sauce, a psychedelic-looking jewelry bag filled with jewelry, and a few pairs of versatile sunglasses, Hadid was also carrying an Isabel zippered leather vanity case. Marant in emerald green that the model claimed she had had for centuries doing it, “butter-sweet.”

Hadid then pulled out three colorful fabric swatches that the Ralph Lauren campaign star had collected from his office. The colorful leftovers allowed Hadid to launch her own cashmere-focused fashion label venture titled Guest In Residence. With a week to go until the launch date, the video is a perfect medium for Hadid’s big announcement beyond a few well-received posts on her own Instagram.

Metaverse-focused trademark applications for Gucci and Prada that were filed by unaffiliated persons – for use on “downloadable virtual goods, namely, computer programs containing footwear, clothing”, etc. ., “retail store services offering [such] virtual goods”, and “entertainment services, namely, providing online non-downloadable virtual shoes, clothing”, etc. – amid a boom in interest in NFTs and the metaverse are without surprise garnering backlash from the US Patent and Trademark Office. In respective Office actions issued this week, the Trademark Office’s examining lawyers initially refused to register the Gucci and Prada word marks on a number of grounds. The most obvious: a risk of confusion between the marks applied for and the valid marks held by Gucci and Prada.

The Bureau actions the USPTO sent to Fenesha Holmes and Reath Mohammed, the people who filed for the Prada and Gucci trademarks in November 2021, are not unexpected. As TFL exclusively reported last year, the apps “probably won’t pose any real problems for [Gucci and Prada] in the United States, since trademark rights are assigned based on the actual use of a trademark. It’s also worth noting that brands like Gucci, for example – which has partnered with Roblox and put its famous logos on a virtual experience and corresponding products – are actively accumulating trademark rights instead of registering their own trademarks. specific to the metaverse by virtue of using their marks in these classes of products/services. And those rights would override those asserted by unaffiliated third parties.

Nevertheless, there are some interesting aspects of the Office’s actions in response to squatter applications, namely, the examiners’ discussions of the similarity of marks in the applications filed by Holmes and Mohammed with those held by Gucci and Prada – in particular, the link between the goods/services in question.

Goods and services of the “real” world compared to the virtual world

By laying out some relevant points on the likelihood of confusion front (and then examining DuPont’s factors to assess the potential for consumer confusion), the USPTO examiners assert that Section 2(d) of the Trademark law “prohibits the registration of a trademark application that is so similar to a registered trademark that it is likely that consumers would be confused, confused or deceived as to the commercial source of the parties’ goods and/or services.

The Examining Lawyers’ discussions of goods and services are compelling, for although Gucci and Prada have consistently used – and maintain a long list of trademark registrations for – their names, none of these registrations specify virtual goods, services virtual goods retail and/or virtual goods-based entertainment services among the goods/services. (No, that doesn’t really matter given that Gucci and Prada are actively using their brands on NFTs and/or in the metaverse, and have therefore obtained rights through such use, but wait.)

In light of the lack of Metaverse/NFT-specific trademark registrations for their word marks, USPTO examiners are looking at the classes of goods/services that are listed in their existing records. For Gucci, the Examiner states that two of its registrations for the Gucci name in Class 35 “use broad language to describe retail store services featuring clothing, jewelry and handbags.” This language “presumably encompasses all services of the type described, including the narrow[er] retail store services featuring virtual goods in these categories” listed in Holmes’ applicationasserts the Examiner, noting that “the parties’ services have no restrictions as to nature, type, trade channels or categories of purchasers” and are therefore “presumed to travel through the same trade channels to the same class buyers.”

In this context, the Examiner finds that the services listed in Holmes’ application and those listed in Gucci’s registrations “are legally identical”. This finding is important, as it would apparently apply even if Gucci did not actually operate in the virtual world and only had its traditional “retail store services” records to rely on. In other words (and as we already suspected), trademark rights/corporate registrations for “real world” goods/services apply to the metaverse.

The Examiner emphasizes this point, stating that the very nature of the goods in issue – both “virtual goods, such as shoes, clothing, headgear, eyewear, handbags, jewelry and watches” and Gucci’s “physical shoes”, clothing, headwear, eyewear, handbags, jewelry and timepieces” – are the kind that “can come from a single source, under a single brand”, which pleads in favor of a link with the hypothetical Gucci virtual brand of the plaintiff. products and those offered by the fashion company headed by Alessandro Michele. (I say “hypothetical” because none of the applicants make or claim actual use of the mark in the metaverse/on virtual goods in their intent-to-use applications.)

Metaverse Trademark

And yet, the link between the products (and the likelihood of confusion) is further reinforced, according to the examiner, since “luxury brands, including [Gucci]sell virtual versions of their physical goods in virtual worlds.

“In this case, since the marks are identical or substantially identical and the goods and services are closely related, consumers encountering the plaintiff’s goods and services would reasonably assume that they are produced or manufactured by the same source as [Gucci’s] goods and services,” says the examining lawyer. Accordingly, “because consumers would be likely to assume a connection between the parties, the marks are confusingly similar”, and registration is refused.

In a separate Office action, an examining attorney denied Mohammed’s Prada trademark on similar grounds, primarily stating that Prada maintains a series of registrations for “PRADA formative trademarks for a variety of real estate that are consistent with [Mohammed’s hypothetical] virtual goods. At the same time, the USPTO examiner finds that the goods/services listed in Mohammed’s application “are related to [Prada’s] registered goods and/or services” – including physical apparel and accessories, and related retail services – because they are “merely virtual versions of registered products”.

Additionally, the Examiner argues that “the same suppliers of actual fashion products often supply virtual fashion products, including the declarer”, and therefore, “Mohammed’s goods and/or services are closely related to the goods and/or or registered services”.

In addition to rejecting applications on grounds of likelihood of confusion, examiners point to a number of other grounds for refusal, including Section 2(a) of the Trade Marks Act, which prohibits the registration of trade marks which may to “falsely suggest” a link with an institution. Although Holmes and Mohammed are “not related to the goods and/or services” provided by Gucci and Prada, the fashion brands are “so well known that consumers would assume a connection” when none exists. Examiners also cite prior pending applications for “Gucci” and “Prada” that were filed by trademark attorneys. (Interestingly, none of the earlier trademark applications mention virtual goods/services.)

Regarding the Gucci application (but oddly enough, not Prada’s), the Examiner said there is also a potential conflict given that Gucci is “mostly just a family name”.

While applicants who receive Office Actions have the opportunity to respond to explicitly address each denial and/or requirement and give their applications the opportunity to potentially advance through the registration process, this round is almost certainly the last we hear about these nominations. In all likelihood, the applications will not provide answers to the actions of the Office, which will lead to the rejection of the applications, since it is essentially impossible to imagine arguments and/or evidence that they could provide to overcome the different USPTO grounds for denial.

It seems that every new season brings with it a new favorite hairstyle on the Internet and ICYMI, the one that has recently gained popularity is the “jellyfish haircut”. Also known as “step mullet” or “step bangs,” the jellyfish haircut is a hybrid of a long mullet and bowl cut. It features chin-length blunt bangs around the face and longer hair in the back, which together resemble the distinctive wispy rows of a jellyfish. As a trend, the #Jellyfishhaircut has amassed over 10 million views on TikTok alone. Although it’s only just starting to rise on our trending radar in the US, the look has been a staple in East Asia for years. With its origins dating back to the Japanese Heian period, the haircut was originally called the “hime” (or princess) cut for being a style worn primarily by noble women. In the modern era, many Japanese and Korean celebrities have donned the blunt cut over the years, like Twice’s Momo and BLACKPINK’s Lisa, among others. More recently, he was seen on the catwalk at Prada‘s Spring 2021 show. Now, this year alone, stars and influencers have opted for the new cut, including Nicole Kidman who was absolutely stunned and shocked by the unusual style on her recent Perfect magazine cover.

As someone who lives vicariously through Pinterest, I’ve had my eye on this haircut for a few years – even before the jellyfish haircut was invented – but I’ve always been hesitant to go for it. throw. This year I finally experimented with a shaggy haircut and found that it didn’t meet my need for a big change. Once my shag grew out, I knew it was time to go for the jellyfish cut. I was particularly inspired after watching creative development editor Mi-Anne Chan rock her mullet in a gradient-style step on Instagram.

Still, I had my concerns. Hairstylist Dhiran Mistry, who cut Mi-Anne’s hair, told me that when it comes to getting a big cut, it’s important that you and your stylist consider both the shape of your face and the texture of your hair. “Some bangs can widen or narrow your face,” he explains, which is why you might need some guidance on whether you want your step layers to fall on your cheek or your chin. “The length should also suit your hair texture,” he adds, “the texture can add more volume and create a totally different effect.” Something to consider if you want a more subtle look compared to the full jellyfish bob.

I was initially worried that the cut wouldn’t work for me because I have a longer face and a wider forehead. I also have naturally curly, 3A hair, so I was worried that this blunt cut wouldn’t suit my natural hair style if I wore it that way. (However, I figured for this look I could commit to wearing it mostly straight.) So, I entrusted my favorite stylist Lillian at Hairrari in Bushwick to make my vision a reality. I had my hair washed first, then Lillian first cut my bangs into a fuller, thicker shape. She then proceeded to cut out the “steps”. She cut my thick, face-framing hair in small increments to see how I felt, but once we saw how cute it was, I told her to cut it short for a more drastic change. Although some people get the 360˚ cut all around, I chose to stop cutting layers to my ear. She ended up cutting off the longer layers of my hair to get rid of the split ends and blow-drying it.

I wanted this haircut for so long and spent years worried about not being able to remove it. Now I feel extremely empowered to have finally made the cut and it has given me newfound confidence.

As for maintenance, I knew it would be a bit more difficult because of my curls. I will say that when it is very humid outside I feel bothered by frizz and sweat causing my hair to curl up so this is not the best haircut for me in the summer – luckily the fall fast approaching. I think many hair types can pull off the jellyfish cut, with the understanding that more textured hair can disguise her beloved sea creature shape. If I were to wear my hair completely curly, it would probably look like a typical shag, although I can’t confirm as I’ve never styled it that way.

Knowing that I would like to wear my hair mostly straight, I prepped my hair before getting a cut with a Gussi at-home keratin treatment kit to help keep my hair silky and frizz-free without damaging it and it worked like a charm. The treatment is supposed to last six weeks and I plan to reapply it as needed. Out of the shower, it takes me 30-45 minutes to dry and straighten my hair, but only 10 minutes to touch it up the following days. I set my style with Tresemmé Hairspray and use Amika Perk-Up Dry Shampoo when it gets a little oily.

Inspired by my TikTok feed, I’ve also tried braiding my hair on days when I’m too lazy to flatter my whole head and even adding ribbons to the ends for a nice contrast. Since I got this haircut, I got so many compliments on the street that it boosted my self-esteem. The jellyfish haircut definitely encouraged me to go for more experimental looks, so ever since I got the cut, I’ve tried bleaching my eyebrows and wearing edgier outfits. I feel like a badass. I know when he grows up he will still look cute, but I’m keeping the hime hairstyle for a while, which means I’ll be back in the salon chair every few months or so to keep the cut fresh.
