Performed over the same hard-hitting instrumental that The Throne rocked over, Bey is ferocious as he takes a socioeconomic approach to what people have dubbed "luxury rap."

IKEA® and HYPEBEAST Design the Ideal Sneakerhead Bedroom
 
01:45
Moving is the chance to transform an expressionless space into a reflection of your personality and style. Whether your move is into a new apartment, or into a dorm during the back-to-school Fall season, you always want your new home base to be an expression of what you love. For sneaker fans, the challenges of setting up a new apartment can be unique — wall space and storage are always at a premium, both for displaying your kicks and stashing your shoe boxes; accessibility is important, and you still need somewhere to sleep. With that in mind, HYPEBEAST has partnered with IKEA to set up a clean and contemporary sneakerhead space. Minimalistic LACK and VITTSJÖ shelves serve as the focal points of the room showcasing all of your footwear grails while a KALLAX storage reduces clutter and keeps your space clear of boxes, leaving room to catch some z’s. Check out the complete room in the video above and visit the IKEA website to help get your design inspiration going.

Offset Goes Back-to-School Shopping With HYPEBEAST
 
03:27
Without a doubt, the biggest day in fashion is the first day of school – at least for anyone under the age of 18. After months of planning the perfect fit, at the expense of your mother, your first-day attire sets the tone for the remainder of the year, especially for those chasing the coveted “Best Dressed Award.” Yet, even if fashion isn’t your first choice of self-expression, it’s certainly not one to be glanced over during your formative years. “You can’t come into the cafeteria with fake J’s on […] they’d jump on the table and point at your shoes,” says former Best Dress Award-winner Kiari Kendrell Cephus, a.k.a. Offset, one-third of hip-hop power-group Migos. “Clothes’ always been my main thing, I use to go to school just to be fresh,” Offset tells us as he takes us shopping with his young daughter at Trico Field in New York City. Here, the budding rap superstar talks more about his fashion upbringing, how his style has evolved over the years, and what brands catch his eye the most these days. Offset concludes our conversation with a little bit of advice for those high schoolers chasing their own “Best Dressed Award.” “Keep it original, do what you like, do what you feel. Don’t let no one tell you you’re doing something wrong."

Now, in an HYPEBEAST PROCESS video, we get to watch the entire process in the production of the latest sneaker.

From the complete knitted uppers to boxing the complete pair, this short exploration in the construction of the Ultra Boost sheds light on the breakdown of the minimal, lightweight running shoe, and the attention to detail implemented by the workers.

"The Legend," Mark Gonzales Finds Perfect Balance in Fine Art and Skateboarding | HYPEBEAST Diaries
 
04:22
HYPEBEAST meets up with artist Mark Gonzales in his Lower East Side studio. The Supreme team member still skates, but has mellowed from his raucous early years. “I think at 50, I think I reached the type of maturity where my art is fine art,” he chuckles. “Where before it was just kid stuff.” “Maybe inside the skateboard world I’m someway on the outside,” Gonzales reflects. “I’m a different way.” As he manuals through Chinatown and shows us the knick-knacks inside his studio space, he meditates on the contrast between his physical approach to skateboarding and emotional take on artwork. “I’m not afraid to … break a bone or … lose my teeth,” Gonzales affirms. “But… I like soft colors, I like pink, I like a lot of things that aren’t really ‘tough.’” Inside the space, the Gonz maneuvers around half-finished canvases, Funko Pop figurines, old skate magazines and retro Makaha boards to get to his window-side workspace. “Mostly you can see it’s pretty messy, that’s the way I work.” he admits “Sometimes it’s hard for ideas to formulate with a clean environment.” As he paints, Gonzales considers how his work attitude has shifted “It’s kinda weird to not have a reason but just to be following an instinct. In my opinion, thats what makes good art.” For up-to-date news and more: http://HYPEBEAST.com Subscribe to our channel: https://www.youtube.com/subscription_...

A veteran of the practice, Mike Cherman continues to print for his brand ICNY Sport, interpolating uncomplicated graphics onto shirts made of quality materials like water repellent, sweat-wicking fabrics and reflective 3M strips. The basic process boils down to drafting a logo on his computer and printing it out with a vinyl cutter — this small step that thus launched countless careers in the industry.

Jimmy Butler Shows Us His Massive Jordan Collection and Outfits for NBA Playoffs | HYPEBEAST Visits
 
05:06
With his Philadelphia 76ers holding down the third seed in the Eastern Conference, Jimmy Butler is beginning to enter the postseason mindset. He’s getting focus, watching film, retooling his conditioning, and picking out his fits. In today’s NBA, where personal branding can be the difference of millions of dollars during contract negotiations, off-court style and overall appearance can be very important to a player. Butler, a Texan with a love for country music, may not be the first hooper you envision when thinking about style in the NBA, but over the last few years, Jimmy has garnered some well-deserved attention from the fashion world. It began early in his career in Chicago when he was seen wearing cowboy boots to-and-from the arena, and not for the trendy ironic reasons, but because he genuinely likes cowboy boots. Then, in 2015, Butler shocked the footwear industry with his departure from adidas to Jordan Brand, a move that cost him a 75% pay-cut. For him however, the transition wasn’t about the money, but more about his personal style and preference. From there, the four-time NBA All-Star has been seen chumming it up with his fellow NBA-ers at Paris Fashion Week, and getting featured in heritage publications like Vogue and GQ. In this episode of HYPEBEAST Visits, one that follows the likes of Mesut Özil and Nick Young, Jimmy Buckets takes us on a tour of his Pennsylvania home, offering insight into his personal style and approach to fashion. Along the way we get a look at his massive wardrobe and sneaker vault, while also meeting his longtime stylist, Khalilah Beavers.

Say what you will about The Hundreds, but the brand's progression is completely undeniable. From humble beginnings in a studio in Venice Boulevard in Los Angeles, the brand has blossomed into a full-scale operation replete with its own marketing, design, sales, and editorial teams -- all hosted in-house. Founder Bobby Hundreds has been made an icon in streetwear for the brand's rampant growth, yet still yearns not to revel in the brand's ostensible success: "It's important for us to...have it be casual and inspiring -- especially for our creative team. Also, [it's important to] make work not feel so much like work." Accordingly, its current space in Vernon, CA boasts a mini-ramp, arcade room, and full-scale kitchen alongside clean workspaces -- a dream space for young creatives of all kinds. In the latest edition of HYPEBEAST Spaces, we explore the space with a personal guided tour courtesy of Bobby Hundreds himself.

Get the latest from HYPEBEAST TV by hitting the SUBSCRIBE button! A graduate of the prestigious Central Saint Martins in London, Kim Jones was in a sense destined to make an impact in the world of fashion. Even before officially finishing school almost half of his 2001 graduate collection was bought by John Galliano, giving him the necessary funds to launch his namesake label the following year. The British designer’s work with the likes of retail giants Uniqlo and Topman, and luxury brands Mulberry, McQ by Alexander McQueen, and Dunhill to name a few, helped propel him to the position of Style Director for French fashion house Louis Vuitton, arguably the pinnacle of contemporary menswear. If he isn’t catching flights across timezones for various projects, Jones finds himself traveling between his residences in London and Paris almost routinely. ”Easy and convenient” is the name of the game when it comes to his essentials, which include limited releases from his current employers and surprisingly (or not) a pair of kicks which any sneakerhead would die for. An unreleased Monogram Tote Bag holds a couple days worth of clothes, while all of his chargers and accessories are stored in a limited Nemeth Pochette made in collaboration with Isetan. To ensure maximum comfort on any plane ride, Jones brings with him a personalized cashmere scarf and a smaller, more discreet monogram pouch packed with all of his in-flight essentials. He also travels with his rose gold MacBook Air and a stationary set from the POOL aoyama to work on-the-go. Last but not least are the fragment design x Air Jordan 1s, a model that he apparently has seven pairs of.

The latest iteration of our 'In Real Life' series takes us to Britain, where we spent the day with Leo Mandella, better known as @gullyguyleo. The young fashion icon has built an impressive following — over 500,000 Instagram followers — and was tapped to become the face of Converse‘s “Rated One Star” campaign. Mandella built his fanbase with outfits that incorporated increasingly rare goods from the likes of Supreme and Palace. After showcasing how he updates his school uniform with personalized flair, Mandella states, “Everyone was kinda dressing the same … it was more about dressing to fit in than dressing how you wanna dress.” After school, he dons yellow Golf le Fleur sneakers and a matching puffer vest, taking us back to his parents house. He walks us through the development of his personal style in this episode, starting with one of his first Supreme pieces and leading to his impressive collection of sneakers.

Produce Your Next Album in a Musician's Space Designed by IKEA® and HYPEBEAST
 
02:20
Making music is a non-stop process — inspiration can strike at any time during the day or night, so having the right setup to execute your vision is super important. A student musician’s room, be it a dorm or an apartment, needs to be a place that not only inspires, but is functional enough to be a workspace for developing your ideas. It must be a space where you can set up all of your equipment and still leave room to store your music, whether analog or digital. Most importantly, you need bed for those times you need to rest your eyes after an all-night beat-making session.

Joji Goes Desk Shopping, "Phones" Drake & Performs with 88rising
 
07:18
Fresh off the release a Trippie Redd-assisted acoustic duet version of "18," 88rising affiliate Joji decided to enjoy the spoils of his success with a trip to everyone's favorite Scandinavian home furnishings institution: IKEA. Documenting the shopping spree -- and the energetic performance that capped off the day -- we accompanied Joji as he picked up some new furniture and opened up about his origins. Born and raised in Japan, Joji learned about American culture like many other overseas kids his age did: rap music and 2000s internet culture. From early YouTube and internet humor to Lil Wayne's classic 2008 classic "A Milli," the most significant parts of Joji's upbringing gave him the foundations he needed for the multi-discipline career he has now. While Joji was nervous when he first started making music, everything paid off after the first few songs and he now stands as one of the modern era's more acclaimed singer-songwriters. Joji’s 'In Tongues' Deluxe EP out now. For up-to-date news and more: http://HYPEBEAST.com Subscribe to our channel: https://www.youtube.com/subscription_...

Artist Tyrrell Winston Turns Trash to Fine Art | HYPEBEAST IMPRESSIONS
 
03:54
Years ago, Tyrrell Winston began scavenging trash around his Brooklyn, NY neighborhood to utilize as materials for his collage artworks and sculptures. Winston is especially privy to using discarded cigarette butts, basketballs, and nets for his latest pieces. Oftentimes, the LA-born creative would walk for miles to collect trash for repurposing — a charitable and meaningful endeavor for the artist who aims to shed light on the stories behind every ditched item he gathers. “The perfect basketball is weathered and worn. The perfect broken net is a rusted metal chainlink net that is totally mangled. The perfect cigarette to me is a Winston cigarette. I’m biased, my last name is Winston,” he said. “[The cigarette] would have lipstick on it and it wouldn’t be too smashed up. It would still be firm.” Watch the video above to get a behind-the-scenes look at Winston’s creative process.

With the absence of bells and whistles, the OG rider keeps his Essentials simple as his passion for the sport has not changed since he first picked up a board some 35 years ago, only requiring what he needs to get his board rolling. Along with his signature Vans shoe, Alva also rides his long-time skating peer's (Christian Hosoi) pro-model Sk8 Hi.

Bobby Hundreds - Cut & Sew Progression

In our latest HBTV episode, we follow Bobby Hundreds through the brainstorming phase and material selection process of The Hundreds' cut & sew offerings.

HYPEBEAST Eats... Afters Handcrafted Ice Cream

Get the latest from HYPEBEAST TV by hitting the SUBSCRIBE button! In this edition of HYPEBEAST Eats... we take you to Afters Ice Cream, a Californian dessert mainstay and pioneer of the Milky Bun. "Ice Cream is My Religion," says the wall once you enter the humble shop -- and that's exactly what the spot has to offer, ice cream, and more ice cream. But Afters isn't your typical scoop of vanilla. Founded by Andy Nguyen and Scott Nghiem, Afters specializes in the "Milky Bun," a donut filled with your choice of ice cream and topping, which then goes through a secret heat press process that warms the bun while keeping the ice cream cold. This novelty menu item flipped the dessert game around, and is now often imitated but never duplicated. This is probably due to the shop's line of in-house created flavors, such as Cookie Monster, Jasmine Milk Tea and Vietnamese Coffee. Make sure to drop by one of its locations if you're in town.

01:20
Miley Cyrus, Lonzo Ball, Jerry Lorenzo, Hailey Bieber were also in attendance at the Saint Laurent Spring/Summer 2020, shown in sunny Los Angeles, is Vaccarello fully realizing a progressive revision of the house, delivering an array of striking looks that reinvent the “heroin chic” popularized by Slimane, without completely abandoning the slim cuts that contemporary Saint Laurent is known for. Sleek blazers, body-hugging jeans, gently-pointed boots and mostly-unbuttoned shirts retain the tenets that make the brand one of Kering’s reliable moneymakers. Statement outerwear, like raw-hemmed gown coats, sparkling bombers and marching band-inspired jackets, provide a bold counterpoint to understated all-black looks, with leather pants and monochrome scarves gently nudging the looks towards boldness. The latter half of the show demonstrates the new values informing Vaccarello’s design ethos, with a press release noting the influence drawn from “the irreverent allure of Mick Jagger and the Parisian nonchalance of Serge Gainsbourg,” bolstered by the looks worn by Jagger’s Stones during the 1975 tour. Sequined one-shoulder tops, deep v-cut shirts and mesh short-sleeves are abetted by waist-covering belts and enormous, draping trousers. Though one could argue that androgynous Saint Laurent styling began with Sliman, Vaccarello has elevated the conceit to new heights, with bare-chested models swaggering down the runway with only a cropped leather jacket or see-through scoop-neck shirt atop the wide pants. Minimalist sandals, thin scarves and minute silver jewelry reinforce the collection’s casual refusal of gender typing.

Japan Blue Jeans Explains Why Japanese Denim Has to Be Handmade

Get the latest from HYPEBEAST TV by hitting the SUBSCRIBE button! Some of the best jeans in the world are crafted in Kojima, a seaside district of Kurashiki, Okayama province. Widely known as Japan’s “denim capital,” Kojima has long been the textile mecca of the country and is where jeans were first produced in Japan. Amongst the cluster of denim manufacturers in the area, Japan Blue has separated itself with loyal followers through its quality in production. “We spend most of our time developing and creating the material, because that’s the essential element to quality denim” says Hiroki Kishimoto, longtime designer and founder of Japan Blue Jeans. Continuing the tradition of crafting durable and timeless denim, Kishimoto and his team undergo a meticulous process each season, from the special wash and dye treatments to the way the denim is hand cut and sewn. While denim originally hails from the States, Kojima denim has set itself apart from competitors in the market by portraying a unique beauty in their jeans that reflects Kojima’s culture. We visited Japan Blue’s studio in Okayama to learn more about the “Kojima way” of creating denim. In addition to the traditions of denim, Japan Blue is working with renown denim retailer Okayama Denim on an upcoming collaborative project. While details are sparse for now, be on the look out for this very special release when it drops later this year.

We sat down with A$AP Ferg to break down some of his New York key summer items. The common denominator to every accessory that was featured is the connection to A$AP Ferg’s childhood and the knowledge acquired from his travels around the world. Born and raised in Harlem, New York, it makes sense that the first item featured was an all red New York Yankees cap. He follows up with two CELINE bags, one grey and one green. “During the summer, I’m always walking with a CELINE bag, especially traveling, because it can fit so much in it.” While discussing his love for the Motorola i530 Yellow Rugged Walkie Talkie Nextel model, Ferg shares that he’s working with Pharrell for his next project and that the phone inspired the music. “I’m transforming into Flip Phone Shorty,” he asserts. “This inspired a lot the songs, I just bring a rack of these. I own like 10 Nextels and lay it right across the control board and just kind of get inspired by them.” He later shows off his Fendi jewelry bag that was given to him by his grandmother. One of the main items spotlighted is a bike chain from his recent collaboration with BMX brand Redline Bikes. The “A Collaboration Of Two True Originals” collection is made up of a limited-edition RL 275 bike and a line of original merch that matches the design and color scheme of the bike.
