#FashionCrush – Zayn Malik (@zaynmalik)

Zayn Malik

One could argue that Zayn Malik was too hot to stand next to four other guys in a group.

Normally the person that leaves the group is under constant scrutiny about what they’re gonna do next and how is their career gonna withstand a solo career.  Who could blame people for wondering how someone could leave the number one boy band since the Beatles with countless hit records. When you’re the heartthrob of the group, however, one never needs to fret. Since leaving One Direction in 2015, Zayn Malik’s career has seen incredible heights. After signing a solo deal with RCA Records, Malik’s first single Pillowtalk debuted at number one on the US Billboard Hot 100 as well as a series of music charts in the UK and other European countries.

With a successful music career under his belt, Malik then began to focus on a lucrative career in fashion.  He has collaborated on a number of high profile collections with Italian shoe brand, Giuseppe Zanotti and Versus Versace which debuted in May of 2017.  His personal style also gained notoriety when The Business of Fashion listed him on their BOF500 list of the most influential people in fashion.  Malik can usually be seen around cities like New York and Los Angeles looking casually cool in band tees, ripped jeans, and rocking a number of different hair do’s like buzz cuts and, most recently, the ubiquitous man bun.

#Fashion Crush – Dev Hynes (@devhynes)

Dev Hynes

Every now and then someone like Dev Hynes comes along and makes you look at fashion from a different perspective.

Dev Hynes

Having been dubbed “New York’s last bohemian” by the New York Times, the London born  musician marches to the beat of his own drum with his fashion as well as with his extensive career.  Since starting his career in 2005 with the band Test Icicles, Hynes has changed aliases many times. In 2007, under the name of Lightspeed Champion, Dev Hynes utilized such friends as Florence and the Machine as his touring band. After officially retiring Lightspeed Champion in 2010, Hynes moved on to Blood Orange whose R&B sound differed from the indie rock sound of Lightspeed Champion. Blood Orange saw much success having had songs on the MTV shows Skin as well as performing on the last episode of MTV’s It’s on with Alexa Chung.

Along with co-writing Florence and the Machine‘s number one album Lungs, Hynes has written for Solange Knowles as well as Britney Spears and Carly Rae Jepsen. He was even featured on english electronica band The Chemical Brothers album We Are The Night which won them a Grammy in 2008.

First was his appearance in H&M’s 2016 holiday campaign where he posed alongside fashion’s new “It’ girl Adwoa Aboah and Vine star Gabriel-Kane, son of actor Daniel Day Lewis. Recently, Hynes sat front row at the Gucci resort 2018 fashion show where he was chosen to take over Gucci’s Instagram and live stream the show. With a list of accomplishments that seems to constantly grow longer it shouldn’t be hard to believe that we’ve only scratched the surface of how remarkable Dev Hynes truly is.

President Who? Macy’s (@Macys) Still Won’t Sell Trump’s (@realDonaldTrump) Menswear

donald trump

Hey you guys, hope you aren’t looking forward to buying any Trump gear from Macy’s because in the words of the unfortunate President to be… “Your Fired”!. Yes, Macy’s has completely pulled the plug on their relationship with Donald Trump and all of his products and menswear. Trump might have won the presidency “fair and square”, but he hasn’t won over Macy’s. Last year, after the crude comments he made against Mexican immigrants basically saying that they’re, “bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime, they’re rapists,” Macy’s who was once the main retailer for all of Trump retail merchandise from ties, dress shirts, and other menswear gear, ended ties with the former Apprentice host.

At the time, a representative from Macy’s stated, “In light of statements made by Donald Trump, which is inconsistent with Macy’s values, we have decided to discontinue our business relationship with Mr. Trump and will phase-out the Trump menswear collection, which has been sold at Macy’s since 2004.”

As of recently in confirmation to the decision made last year to cut ties with Trump, Macy’s Chairman Terry Lundgren assured that the company will continue to stand by their original decision. In an interview with The Street, Lundgren said,

“As I have said, we wouldn’t carry product from a political candidate—and now a politician—whether they be Republican or Democrat. If Hillary Clinton had a line of women’s suits or handbags I wouldn’t carry those either. I just think we don’t want to be a politically associated company, we sell to everybody at Macy’s and have a broad and diverse customer base.”

So basically, he sweetened the drop of Trump merchandise in a way that is politically correct, I guess… but anyways don’t expect to see any future candidates merchandise coming to a Macy’s near you, either. So Kanye if you’re really going to run in 2020 we’re going to need for you to open up shop somewhere else lol, your dope for reading.
