MILAN — Italian streetwear brand GCDS is entering the beauty arena.
The company will unveil its GCDS Beauty line on its online store on Nov. 1, followed by the launch during the ComplexCon fair in Long Beach, Calif., this weekend.
Manufactured by Italian color cosmetics supplier Intercos, the first drop of cruelty-free products includes four lipsticks targeting a young and playful audience and retailing approximately at 22 euros each.
“These products are for me the purse essentials,” said designer Giuliano Calza, who founded the label in 2015 with his brother Giordano. Calza underscored he focused on developing a functional and interesting offering. “[My goal] is not to compete with the major beauty companies, I just wanted to deliver fun products to gift my people.”
This is reflected by the bold names and the ironic catch phrases related to each product, including the Hype transparent lip balm; the Blinghoe plumping lipstick with a sparkling pink finishing; the Marijuana 4:20 ph reagent green option turning into a natural cherry blush tint once applied on the lips and the Velvet D.I.C.K. red matte lipstick.

IT TAKES TWO: It’s a busy season for the Karl Lagerfeld brand, which is gearing up for the worldwide launch on Oct. 19 of a men’s and women’s capsule with Puma. It caps the sports brand’s Suede 50 program of collaborations marking the 50th anniversary of its original Suede sneaker. While originally focused on the shoe, the project grew into a 13-piece capsule fusing the brands’ respective codes.
Items include a women’s cropped T-shirt and jumpsuit based on Puma’s archive T7 tracksuit with 7-mm. stripes. Men’s pieces include a slim-fit hoodie with matching sweatpants and logo T-shirts. A backpack, shoulder bag and baseball cap sport custom Karl Lagerfeld x Puma branding, with prices for the capsule ranging from 40 euros to 175 euros.
The line includes two unisex Suede sneakers inspired by Lagerfeld’s personal style: a tuxedo jacket, high white collar, tie and sunglasses — reinterpreted through graphics, say, or in playful details like removable sunglasses.
The collection will be available for pre-sale at karl.com and puma.com from Oct. 18, rolling out to Karl Lagerfeld and Puma stores as well as selected retailers worldwide the next day.
Other brands and personalities to have collaborated on Puma’s Suede 50 program across 2017 and 2018 include Ferrari, Michael
Who would have thought Cam’ron was the sentimental type? Today (June 23), the Harlem rapper took to Instagram to honor the mother of his son, who just graduated high school, and it was all types of heartwarming.
Cam is a proud papa as his son—the same little dude from the Come Home With Me cover—is heading to college. But his IG post was to salute and honor his son’s mother, Toy, who he credits for the kid’s success, as well as his sense of style.
“A Eastside story: so the first week When I got to 7th grade, I seen this girl that I automatically loved. She was cute, had swag, and fly jewelry. I found out her name was Toy and she was a grade ahead of me. And she was tuff. I mean could beat up boys, take it to the guns etc. I was like… what kind of 8th grader is this?!,” wrote Cam with a pic of the teenaged couple.
He went on to detail how Toy got him fly, buying him Gucci gear, chains, and how until this day he’s not sure why. Considering how Cam loves to be a trendsetter, him giving kudos out like this is major.
However, Cam admitted being Killa Cam was the doom of their romantic relationship.
“When she became a junior in high school I noticed a big changed in her. She took school more serious and became a honor roll student. Went on to graduate from St. John’s, masters from Delaware st, and another masters back at St. John’s. And also the mother of my son.. We ended up breaking up when I turned about 26 (I think) because of my cheating, lying and trying to peruse a music career that she wanted nothing to do with. She wanted me to go to school and we live a family life. But she understood my vision but she wasn’t going to be a part of it.”
Fast forward, and their son is a high school graduate, and the kid is so thorough, he wanted his dad to give his mother a gift for the milestone.
“I didn’t have a father in my life so I could never tell my son no to anything. But because of her our son had 5 full academic scholarship offers. and she hates social media. she’s doesn’t have a page etc. So I asked my son.. what kind of car u want for graduating? He said “dad I don’t want a car yet. After I get my associates degree then I’ll rock. But we should get mom a new car. She likes that new Range Rover velar.” I said “WORD!!”
So Cam’rom got her that Range Rover, and some new Gucci gear, too.
How real is that? Big up to co-parenting.
Check out Cam’s full story and footage of the graduation blessings below and by swiping.

ONE FOR THE BOYS: The British contemporary women’s wear label Aries has added a men’s wear component and will launch a unisex collection with Mr Porter on Jan. 18. The label, which launched in 2012 and is based in east London, delved into men’s wear after seeing a demand from its customers.
“Many of my male friends already wear Aries, and I think that the community has demanded more,” said creative director Sofia Prantera. “At the beginning, Aries was created as a unisex concept; however, it was hard to commercialize. My background is in designing men’s wear and my women’s wear has derived from that. With Aries the cuts are the same — it always fit men, we just didn’t advertise it.”
The men’s pieces take their cue from the label’s Nineties streetwear aesthetic: The 20-piece collection includes jackets, denim, logo T-shirts and shorts with a deconstructed Nineties vibe. There are also T-shirts that were taken apart then put back together.
Prantera also used classical and historical symbols and blended those designs with pop styles on shirts. The price range is 69 pounds for a T-shirt to 1,412 pounds for a sheepskin jacket. The collection will be available for purchase on the brand’s
GEORGIA’S GEAR: Georgia May Jagger has teamed with Volcom Stone Row on a capsule range. Launched in 1991, Volcom — a brand owned by the Kering Group — is known for its surfing, skating and snowboarding apparel, footwear and accessories. Stone Row is Volcom Women’s elder sister and is aimed at a contemporary market. It is inspired by music, art and travel.
Women’s global design director Kelly Summer said Jagger had a passion for design and wanted to work with the label to create pieces that were missing from her wardrobe, easy items to wear during her travels.
“She is honest and focused on what she wants,” Summer said of working with Jagger. “Plus, she is with us every step of the way through the design process. With a common influence from London and California, we are aligned on our inspiration for Volcom and Stone Row, so it’s been a great partnership. From initial concept, right through to the photo shoot, we have plenty of touch points with Georgia to make sure this collaboration is something she is proud of.
“Georgia is the Volcom muse. She represents our girl from her love of the ocean to skateboarding, music and art and, of course,
M.I.A. MERCH: The British singer-songwriter Mathangi Arulpragasam — better known by her stage name M.I.A. — has teamed with the Danish designer Astrid Andersen on a capsule clothing range that launches this week.
The collaboration came about after Arulpragasam requested some spring 2017 garments from Andersen, and the musician asked if they could work together in some way. She lauded Andersen’s merging of “function, sport, simplicity and futurism.”
“M.I.A’s message is strong and pure and her personality is strong-willed and determined. That’s rare to find and that’s what made her so incredible to work with,” said Andersen. “For this particular project, it all happened super fast. We have the same references, so it was natural to create pieces from my spring 2017 collection and use her colors and artwork.”
The designer, who was inspired by artwork from the musician’s latest album, “AIM,” used silhouettes from her spring 2017 show. She revamped them using light technical materials in black, coral and beige.
The collection made its debut at the Astrid Andersen flagship in Denmark to celebrate Copenhagen Fashion Week. The range consists of anoraks, T-shirts and track pants. Prices range from 50 pounds for a T-shirt to 120 pounds for an anorak. It will be

Here’s some fun sibling rivalry for you. The day after Kim Kardashian called for more gun control, her sister Kourtney went and posted a photo of herself at a shooting range.
Kourtney captioned the photo, “Don’t mess,” and it’s hard to tell if the message was meant for Kim, though the timing is certainly strange. What’s more is that it’s not even a new photo, as Gossip Cop pointed out.
It’s actually a screenshot from a 2007 episode of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” where Kris Jenner brought Kourtney, Khloe and Kim to the shooting range for target practice. On the episode, Kim was nervous about shooting guns, but suddenly felt “empowered” once she started accessorizing with safety gear. The episode later showed her learning to shoot a massive assault rifle.
The subject of the purchase of guns has been a plot point on the family’s reality show several times throughout the series. And while Kim also spoke out when her stepparent Caitlyn Jenner decided to buy a gun for protection on a 2013 episode after the family members were the victims of a swatting prank, Kourtney’s throwback Instagram certainly strikes as a little shady.
