If you’re a die-hard when it comes to stylish, spot-on Halloween costumes and don’t mind forking out nearly $3,000 to have the artist’s Loewe jumpsuit you can pick it up online. This week, Ksubi launched a new creative program, “Blank Canvas.” It highlights up-and-coming artists and for its first installment, the program highlights Buffalo-based artist Wasabi who customizes painted pieces in a capsule collection.
In New York City, the flagship store le PÈRE hosted its grand opening this week. This event was accompanied by the brand’s release of its Fall/Winter 2023 collection. Champion has also released a campaign highlighting Black and brown creatives.
Lastly, it wouldn’t feel like a complete roundup of fashion news without a collaboration. Maison Margiela and Salomon have announced a collaborative sneaker that is quite stylish. This pair of sneakers is very true to Salomon’s design ethos as it arrives in a vibrant blue colorway.

Champion’s Latest Campaign Highlights Black Artists And Designers
From rappers to athletes to artists, the latest Champion campaign was made to connect, collaborate, and push boundaries between different creatives and did so flawlessly. The sportswear brand is redefining the word champion with its new campaign that highlights young Black and brown artists and designers. The campaign entitled “Champion What Moves You” celebrates individuality. The brand amplified a deaf rapper Signkid, in particular, who performed at a recent event. The rapper realized there was no sign for the word “champion” as a verb so he created one.
Maison Margiela X Salomon Release A Collaborative Sneaker
A luxury sneaker never looked so good. The blue sneaker called the “ASC Pro” is perhaps the two collaborators’ most practical and wearable shoe yet. Available in black and cream, the different hues of blue complement each other beautifully. This shape is also quite practical and wearable but will be released about a month after the “ASC Pro,” according to Highsnobiety.
The Maison Margiela X Salomon “ASC Pro” is available on StockX.com.
