Kris Van Assche to Put His Namesake Label on Hold

This has been a bummer of a week for menswear. Following the rumors (but no confirmation) that the L.A.-based brand Band of Outsiders is closing, comes word that designer Kris Van Assche is putting his eponymous label on hold, reports WWD. In a handwritten note, the Belgian designer explained that the label may return, but "this wonderful adventure has reached a point where I feel the need to take a break and some distance to better think about how to develop my brand in the future." He also noted that "times are tough for independent labels," a comment that see more

Editor's Pick: The Enduring Appeal of Nike Air Force 1s

Everybody has one—that thing you wanted so desperately as a child, but your parents wouldn't relent. For our own Kevin Pires, it was a pair of white Air Force 1s from Nike. Sadly, he wasn't able to call a pair his own while he was younger. Lucky for him, however, Air Force 1s haven't gone out of style. In fact, they might have somehow become cooler over the years. Here'w why we still want them. Nike Air Force 1 ($110) see more

Model Joan Smalls Channels Pharrell in This Year's CFDA Awards Journal

We're less than a week out from the CFDA Awards—which is essentially the Oscars of fashion for American designers. Each year, the CFDA also produces a limited-edition "journal" that features imagery and short profiles on the nominees and honorees. This year, Pharrell is being honored with the Fashion Icon award. Unfortunately, Pharrell couldn't make the shoot for the journal because he was somewhere being iconically stylish, so the CFDA (with its creative partner Trey Laird of Laird + Partners) used model Joan Smalls as a stand-in. Smalls is styled wearing Pharrell signatures like the Adidas track jacket and Stan see more

Editor's Picks: Sleek, Streamlined Sunglasses for Summer

Founded by Luca Gnecchi Ruscone, eyewear brand L.G.R. specializes in high-end, handcrafted glasses with an emphasis on local artisans and quality materials. As our associate editor Antonina Jedrzejczak explains, the designs are sleek, sophisticated, and veer toward classic shapes like the aviator above, featuring tortoiseshell frames. Still, things like scratch-proof lenses and flexible joints make them worth the price. You can find a pair for yourself, here. see more

The Best-Dressed Guys at Cannes Aren't Just Wearing Tuxedos

When most people think about Cannes, their minds immediately go to the glamorous long red carpet that actors have to walk before premiering their latest films. But because it's black tie, all the men there (paparazzo included) have to wear tuxedos. And if you've seen one tuxedo, you've pretty much seen them all. Which is why we prefer to check out what the film world's most talented actors wear earlier in the day, at their pre-screening photo calls. Here, they're allowed to wear pretty much whatever they want, so you'll see everything from a three-piece suit, like the one Colin see more

J. Crew X Onitsuka Tiger Are The Sneakers You Should Wear This Weekend

Of late, J. Crew has been acting like that friend you have—that everyone has—who is just a little bit more in-the-know than you. And while this friend may make you feel just a twinge of jealousy, you keep them around because they help you, in turn, look in-the-know. To wit: J. Crew just happened to know that this year was the 30th anniversary of the Colorado Eighty-Five style from the very cool Japanese sneaker brand Onitsuka Tiger. Oh, and they just happened to know that the Colorado Eighty-Five, with three decades under its belt, looks suspiciously modern in one see more

#WeWantIt: A Russian Designer's Subtly Subversive Take on American Style

If you haven't heard of Gosha Rubchinskiy, it's understandable. The Russian menswear designer is still new and his clothing is startling in its subtle subversiveness. See, while Rubchinskiy seems to be channeling normcore-friendly youth cultures like skaters or suburban ne'er-do-wells, it's all seen through a prism of Soviet angst. Here, editorial assistant Kevin Pires introduces you to his favorite piece from the current collection. see more
