Spring/Summer 2012 Style: Johnson Motors Collection Preview

While web-surfing, I came across a few pictures of L.A.’s fashion brand Johnson Motors spring/summer 2012 collection of authentic vintage garments, inspired by the brand 1930′s motorcycle distributor roots. “In its heyday, Johnson Motors collaborated with such stars as James Dean and Marlon Brando, and this history is translated into the clothes via detailed patches and stitching. Furthermore, all of the denim is of course high quality raw selvedge. Abbreviated JOMO, the collection is 100% made in the USA and features an array of graphic tees, inspired by the brand’s rich past when it once was the #1 distributor of Triumph motorcycles in the United States,” source.

We all know that Kanye West is one of the greatest rappers to ever pick up a mic. He is also known for his stylist outfits. This past October, West debuted his “DW” by Kanye West womenswear collection during Paris Fashion Week. “DW” is named after his beautiful mother, the late Donda West. West is so serious about pursuing a career as a fashion designer that he’s moving to the UK. According to AllHipHop, “West is looking to move to the United Kingdom for his fashion endeavors. They are even saying he may put his music on hold. But, this is all in preparation for Fashion Week in Paris. He’s reportedly looking for apartments right now.”

Spotted In New Jerz: Jay-Z & His Childhood Friend Emory Jones Sitting Courtside At The Nets Game

Last night Tuesday (December 27), Brooklyn’s rapper/music mogul Jay-Z and his childhood friend Emory Jones were spotted at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, to watch the New Jersey Nets vs. Atlanta Hawks game. I was there too! I was far from court side but I had an okay seat. I spotted Jay-Z but wasn’t able to get to him because we were sitting far apart. The final score was 106-70, in favor of the Hawks. If you guys are not familiar with Emory, he and Jay-Z are childhood friends. He was released from the Feds in 2010. This guy is a real street dude and he was the person who put up the money to start Roc-A-Fella. Back in 2010, Jay-Z sent over his personal Maybach to pick up Emory from the Feds. On Jay-Z’s Kingdom Come album he dedicated a song, entitled “Do You Wanna Ride” to Emory. Peep the picture below of Jay and Em in there youngest days.

Sneaker Me Dope: Darnell Robinson Rocking 2NE1 x Jeremy Scott x Adidas Originals JS Wings 2.0 “Satin”

Darnell Robinson MTV’s “My Super Sweet 16” was spotted rocking a pair of Jeremy Scott Adidas. The style he was wearing are the 2NE1 x Scott Jeremy Scott x Adidas Originals JS Wings 2.0 “Satin,” which was created Korean pop group 2NE1. The 2.0 version sees a somewhat tamed aesthetic (as tame as can be for JS), as the upper is composed of white satin. Robinson is now pursing a music career. He is a dope artist. I wish him the best of success in his future endeavors. I support and respect what he’s doing. Happy holidays to the Robinson family, God bless!

Love & Hip-Hop: Erica Mena Blasts VH1 & Said Her Fight With Kimbella Affected Her “Modeling” Career

This past Monday, the reality world was introduced to model Erica Mena, on the sixth episode Love & Hip-Hop. Every since the episode aired, Mena have been getting a lot of negative feedback in the press. This 24-year-old Bronx native is now criticizing VH1 over the way she was portrayed in the show. Mena got into an ugly fight with Kimbella Vanderhee. The two ladies fought after Vanderhee tossed a champagne glass at Mena, over some bad comments Mena had made regarding Vanderhee’s modeling career. Now, Mena is claiming the fight that aired on this week’s episode of Love & Hip Hop has ruined her modeling career and it’s VH1‘s fault.

Mena told TMZ, she was completely misrepresented in the episode — blaming show editors for unfairly portraying her as the bad guy … and Kimbella as an angel. “My whole image in my career is now affected by this. I wanted them to pull this clip because I don’t want to show this side of me,” said Mena.
