    HighSnobiety was in attendance during Marcelo Burlon’s recent Fall/Winter 2015 presentation at Milan Fashion Week and captured the essence of the collection backstage before it was unveiled to the world. Keeping with the brand’s DNA, the Milan-based designer once again includes a bevy of sportswear-inspired garments that incorporate tribal patterns, animal prints and pixelated graphics across a selection of capes, sweatshirts, tees and basketball shorts. The range also utilizes luxurious leather throughout giving the offering a high-end feel. Channeling the likes of Butch Cassidy and Sundance Kid, Burlon emphasized the collection’s outlaw theme with gun holsters, boots and wide-brim hats.

    Virgil Abloh is a designer (he presents the third collection of his label Off-White tomorrow in Paris), creative director (he’s Kanye West’s longtime right hand man), and DJ (in the last two weeks he’s played Brooklyn, Dusseldorf, and Milan) who grew up in Chicago and currently resides in airport terminals, hotel rooms, and the backseat of chauffeured cars. We caught up with him in Milan at his design studio and center of operations for Off-White, where staff was packing up his fall 2015 men’s line to ship it to Paris, and where he was due to spend the afternoon madly finishing his women’s collection. Here, he outlines the inspiration for the new season of Off-White, reveals the gonzo plan for his upcoming presentation in Paris, and explains why fashion weeks across the globe have become the new “conventions of cool.”

    A.G. Cook takes on two deified pop princesses, Charli XCX and Rita Ora. The two could easily join Hannah Diamond in the PC Music stable. Cook pairs their sucrose voices with sunny vibes and staccato club synths, creating a glistening vibe that keeps things stark and fresh. As always, it turns out to be a surprisingly unique flip.

He and his group of friends are deeply into the hip-hop, tying in the many guest appearances from rappers that include the aforementioned artists above and also Casey Veggies.

    The Oakland native releases a new music video to accompany “Tumblr Girls” from his third studio release These Things Happen. Stepping away from darker, more abstruse concept from the last video, these visuals are far from conservative, where the rapper is unafraid to spotlight a few barely clothed (and intermittently nude) ladies to illustrate the track’s thematic content. This is of course but a tasteful reflection of the reality of what is observed on the social media platform — something we’re sure you can all attest to.

    j-dilla-donuts-fan-made-44-minute-video-feat

    It’s almost nine years since the death of legendary beatmaker-rapper J Dilla, but his legacy lives on stronger than ever. This has been demonstrated by both his posthumous releases as well as his sound, which is constantly emulated by today’s producers. Perhaps Dilla’s biggest fan is a YouTube user going by the moniker Houston Loves J Dilla, who had just released a masterfully edited 44-minute-long video that covers every track of Jay Dee’s acclaimed album Donuts. The YouTuber digs up video accompaniments most of the samples used throughout the record, and for the sounds where the video samples can’t be found, he compiles together thematically relevant clips. Check the video below and listen to Dilla in sort of a new way.
