It’s the first few days of the looming New York Fashion Week, and the clock is ticking as PR agencies are scrambling to get invites sent and confirmed. Editors prepare their looks to be the subjects of street-style photos, and influencers concoct plans to get into shows and afterparties. This season is full of Black designers that are up-and-coming, and we’re excited to see all the potential on the runway.

Stars Skepta, and Shygirl front the campaign.
Lebron James x The Surgeon
Lebron has been celebrated for surpassing a record that was originally set by Kareem Abdul-Jabar of scoring. He really is the king. In honor of that, Nike commissioned The Surgeon to make a shoe for the NBA player called the Iconic Lebron 20. The silhouette is a one-of-a-kind custom shoe just for the record breaker with an iridescent swoosh and a white marble leather fit for a king.
