Icon: Happy Birthday Erykah Badu

 #QueenBadu

Last Friday, neo-soul singer, fashion icon, and undercover Jedi—Erykah Badu—celebrated her 47th birthday surrounded by famous faces and thousands of her loyal fans. The big birthday bash was held at The Bomb Factory in  Badu's hometown of Dallas, Texas and shared across the country as the event was broadcast on Facebook Live.

The star-studded show included guest appearances made by Dave Chappelle, Yasiin Bey aka Mos Def, Anderson . Paak, Big Baby D.R.A.M, and many more, who all paid tribute and serenaded the icon.

   

In honor of Badu Day (2/23 … and yes I’m making today a national holiday in my world), let’s celebrate her 47th revolution around the sun with her best songs.

#WhenTheStarsAlign

Helmut Lang teamed up with Exactitudes to celebrate the brand and its multi-generational cult collectors with a simple but impactful campaign. Shot by the dynamic duo, Ari Versus and Ellie Uyttenbroek, Exactitudes documented Helmut Lang's top fans and their unique style—dressed in the brand's archival and new pieces.

Kanye West has been very vocal for his admiration for the brand and even openly admitted that Helmut Lang inspired him for his Yeezy collection (see the similarities now?). Solange has been a collector since she was in high school and has praised the brand's evolution under HBA founder, Shayne Oliver.

NEWS: NEW YEAR, NEW JUSTIN

#ManOfTheWoods
.
Justin Timberlake is kicking off 2018 with the announcement of his soon-to-be released album, Man of the Woods. Just in time for his Super Bowl comeback performance (RIP wardrobe malfunction), Man of the Woods will give fans a new and different perspective of Justin. While he's no stranger in reinventing himself, his promo video visually showcases an entirely new man. So long are the days of JT in his baby blue 'fits, frosted curly tips, cornrows, and sleek suits and ties. Justin is coming back with a more humble look that merges “man meets nature” and country boy swag. “This album is really inspired by my son, my wife, my family, but more so than any album I’ve ever written, where I’m from,” Timberlake says. “And it’s personal.”

Set to launch in February 2nd, JT is treating his fans with a new song from the album this Friday, January 5th.
