Louis Vuitton‘s Paint Can Bag is reserved only for the bold-hearted statement-makers — and it’s definitely worth a double take. Previously available in “Purple,” “Red” and “Orange,” the wildly imaginative accessory has been updated with a fresh slate of colorways inspired by the late Virgil Abloh‘s signature palette.

Now finished in “Lagoon,” “Green” and “Yellow,” the artful (and very realistic) accessory is a collectible for the fashion-minded creative, complete with a chrome LV-embossed metal handle and a ring top that flips open thanks to a leather hinge. The exterior plays with true-to-life paint-can branding, emblazoning “EXTERIOR PAINT” lettering front-and-center, providing information about the paint’s quality under the handle and warning its wearer to “Handle With Care” on its back. Notes of realism make their way inside the Paint Can, too, with microfiber lining the entire cylindrical case in each bag’s respective colorway.

The world first met Louis Vuitton’s Paint Can Bag during the Maison’s monumental Men’s Fall/Winter 2022 runway show, which honored Abloh’s unequivocal influence on the House’s DNA with then-and-now references to eight seasons of his game-changing work. The omnipresent visionary often toyed with the French label’s classic leather goods, offering abstract, avant-garde takes on legacy silhouettes — and the Paint Can Bag is a light-hearted nod to his tongue-in-cheek approach to design.

The Louis Vuitton Paint Can Bag is now available in “Lagoon,” “Green” and “Yellow” on the brand’s website and at local LV boutique stores for $2,850 USD. Take a look at the new finishes above.

There are few silhouettes in the sneaker landscape right now that can compare to the Dunk when it comes to the pure volume of releases and collaborations, and it goes without question that Nike (NYSE:NKE +1.05%) intends on riding this wave for as long as it can. In the coming months, you can anticipate the brand to unleash a consistent stream of new releases, one being this Nike Dunk High “Desert Camo” colorway that has just surfaced via official imagery.

Its nickname essentially gives it away that the Swoosh opted to go with a militant motif for this latest lifestyle iteration. To adhere to the aesthetic and feel of military garb, the brand fittingly swaps out the traditional smooth leather panels up top and invites in canvas to form the base’s build. Underlays, overlays and tongues are styled with Fall-friendly “Desert Camo” graphics while the laces and Swooshes contrast with solid shades of beige. Underneath, the shoes come crafted with clean white midsole units and milky treading. Solid black Nike branding tops everything off on the tongues and insoles.

Be on the lookout for Nike to release these in the coming weeks.



New York-based artist and designer Nik Bentel has unveiled his latest project, the limited-edition Shipping Box Bag. The forthcoming release follows Bentel’s hit Pasta Bag, which resembles a Barilla pasta box and sold out in less than a minute. Last month, the artist debuted a sequel bag, a take on the packaging from rival pasta company De Cecco.

Fashioned out of vegan leather, the Shipping Box Bag features a four-fold magnetic opening, just like that of a standard cardboard box. A white strap fastened to the bag reads “Fragile: Handle with Care.”

After the Pasta Bag, Bentel says he was inundated with requests to design another bag. Known for his satirical iterations of everyday objects, he attributed the idea to create the Shipping Box Bag to cardboard box deliveries.

“I came up with the idea after recycling a whole bunch of cardboard boxes that had been delivered to my studio,” Bentel told Hypebeast. “Even though they were essentially trash, I wanted to elevate the humble cardboard box into something usable again. My goal as a designer has always been to create something exciting from the mundane.”

The bag is available in two different iterations. One is already printed with UV shipping label stickers, while the other is a plain box that comes with a pack of vinyl stickers so that the buyer can customize their own bag.

Nik Bentel’s Shipping Box Bag launches on July 21 at 10 a.m. ET on the artist’s official website. The exclusive release will include only 100 bags, priced at $199 USD apiece.



James Whitner and his team over at the The Whitaker Group make it a strong point to give every one of their sneaker collaborations their undivided attention to ensure that every component of the rollout from the campaign imagery to the short films to the storytelling is on point. And next up on their agenda is the Social Status x Nike  Air Max Penny 1 “Recess” collection — a two-piece sneaker pack that shines a light on the significance of the lessons that the youth can learn both in the classroom and on the playground.

There are design details galore on the “Black” and “Desert Sand” colorways included in this assemblage — which is in fact the first collaboration ever executed with Penny Hardaway’s signature model. The former iteration is an overt nod to the OG “Orlando” colorway while the latter is a neutral-focused offering that keeps a grayscale motif. Both pairs feature velcro-backed Swooshes to allow you to interchange the extra sports-inspired Swoosh logos that come packed with the kicks. Additionally, the insoles and shoe boxes are ornamented with chalkboard-inspired branding as well as the sentence “A quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog” — one of the English language’s most notable pangrams.

Check out an exclusive look at the pack here above and note that Social Status is officially dropping them on July 15 at 11AM EDT for $190 USD each.

 J Balvin. This marks the Prince Of Reggaeton’s second official team-up with Jordan Brand, and much like his first one, he goes all out with adventurous details. The most significant feature of the sneakers is its cloudy patterns which make their way onto the heel overlays as well as the interior linings. Signature logos of the Colombian crooner make their way onto the lower heels as well as the inside of the tongues, and the insoles are printed with “Air Jordan” spell-outs that are written out in Balvin’s font. Furthermore, the uppers have multi-colored exposed stitchings that divvy up the padded panels and the bottoms are upgraded with glow-in-the-dark abilities.

So far there haven't been any details about the release of the sneakers but I can't wait to try to get my hands on them.

In case you didn't know, Kendrick Lamar is not your savior. The Atlanta Braves are also the 2021 World Series Champs. No takebacks, no do-overs. I would love to relive the moments. Those were magical times. Like always, you not reading this shit. 

This is what I wore to the game yesterday. I took Freckles to her first game and they won cause she was there. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

I'm not that big of a fan of white jerseys, but this gold outline was calling my name. I actually can't think of the last time I put on a white shirt and was happy with the choice.  This one is the first in a long time. 

Wear a red undershirt.


Versace Men's Tokyo R Silicone 

Color me fancy. I love the color block watches. They really are everything to me. 


Should I take these off my feet right now or what? The funny thing about these is that I picked these up for a grand total of 20 dollars. These are now worth close to 3K. I wouldn't mind seeing these make a comeback. I would love to get different colors. 

What you wearing today? Let me know on  Twitter / Instagram

To love what you have done is to take the time to actually sit back and live in the beauty of the seeds that you planted. The landscape of society changes at such a rapid rate that you never know when the last will be just that. I want to make sure that we here at The Squire + Said co never find ourselves lost in the ever-fetching moment that is time. We are not defined by our goals as a company. That box can't confine our fluid nature. What we can control is the enjoyment we have along the way. Our first "Company Retreat" in Atlanta, Ga will bring all the amazing talent into one place to live in the moment as André (Leon Talley) would always yell at me to do.
The company has big plans for the future and that will be addressed but for now, let's champion the journey that we have taken to get this far.
The first retreat for the company is in honor of André Leon Talley & Virgil Abloh. I forever give you the flowers from the garden you help us grow.

Louis Vuitton has unveiled its new men’s Pre-Fall 2022 residency in Soho that highlights the final capsule from the late creative director, Virgil Abloh.

Even though the loss of Virgil Abloh is still felt around the world, the fashion world is still remembering, honoring and paying tribute to the visionary creative. His work lives on and the latest iteration of his storytelling prowess is present in Louis Vuitton’s newest temporary residency in Soho for the men’s Pre-Fall 2022 collection. Titled “Daybreak,” the latest capsule is Abloh’s final capsule for the French heritage house. Featuring gradient walls in shades of teal, jade green and pollen, the walls and floor of the space are finished off with yellow Louis Vuitton initials.

“My philosophy is very much informed by the clothes that people actually wear. What I do is an analysis of a generation: what do people buy and why do they wear it,” said Virgil Abloh? “That question naturally creates an equal interest in tradition as it does in changing tradition. But it’s also about challenging myself and exploring different land. That is creative freedom.”

In addition to the cool-hued setting, the residency space is also outfitted with custom mannequins of models who were a part of Abloh’s vision. The store is outfitted with ready-to-wear garments and accessories from the Pre-Fall 2022 collection – featuring mohair knitwear, outerwear, vests, denim, luxe sweatsuits and t-shirts. A highlight of the collection is contemporary suiting that features Louis Vuitton’s Damier print detailing in addition to vintage trunk closures.

Rounding out the capsule are some of Abloh’s signature accessories like soft trunks, mini keepall bags, backpacks, LV Trainers and more.

Check out the images above for a look at the residency that is currently open through early June at 104 Prince Street in New York City.
