july may be over, but noah is not over it

Noah Cyrus released her song July on the month’s very last day, July 31. Perhaps the song is a farewell to the summer month and all she endured during this time. Her sound and style for the song feature her country roots that her sister and many others have gravitated to this summer. Consistent with her release date, the singer relays lyrics that indicate her relationship is facing its bitter end, while she faces great difficulty moving on from it.

GOLF le COSTE*

Just in time for Wimbledon, the tennis inspired brand Lacoste has collaborated with Tyler, the Creator’s line GOLF le FLEUR *, cleverly naming the collection GOLF le COSTE. The Design and marketing of the pieces stay true to both brands--classic and comfortable. The unisex pieces channel a vintage aesthetic through cut and usage of pastels. The clothes are variations on the same theme, granting the wearer the possibility of mixing pieces. Each piece is topped with the merged logo, fusing the iconic Lacoste crocodile with the GOLF le FLEUR* flower. The collection will soon be available on the Lacoste website and select boutiques.

don’t f*ck with her freedom

Miley has risen to the top of our radar with the release of her new EP, SHE IS COMING. The most popular song on the album is entitled Mother’s Daughter, a track centered around women empowerment. This is a crucial time to relay such messages as the recent abortion bans sweep our nation. Consistent with the album’s message, Miley has teamed up with Marc Jacobs to collaborate on a sweatshirt with the pop star’s face and the lyrics“don’t f*ck with my freedom” from Mother’s Daughter. In addition to encouraging women’s sexuality and strength within the design, the two have indicated that all proceeds will benefit Planned Parenthood.

fka twigs new single, cellophane, stripped

(literally and figuratively)

FKA Twigs’ newly released track Cellophane brings a new meaning to stripped. Cellophane’s music video features the artist in mythical apparel, moving along the pole, customarily used by strippers. The music video counters the stigma associated with pole dancing, showcasing it as an elegant and artistic form of dance. The video exudes femininity and strength, apparent within the artist herself. Twigs also includes an additional dimension to the song by releasing a stripped rendition of the track, which features a live performance solely accompanied by her piano and cellist.

Billie captures our strangest addiction, the office

In Billie Eilish’s album, WHEN WE FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO?, she cleverly links her song, my strange addiction with her apparent strange addiction, The Office. The song features various clips from the iconic episode where Michael Scott shows his employees the film he created, Threat Level Midnight. Eilish’s dedication to the show was put to the test as Rainn Wilson, who plays Dwight Schrute, questions her knowledge of the show.

SOLANGE AS US ON PHOTOBOOTH CIRCA 2007

Solange’s album, When I Get Home is consistent with her alternative sound, straying from typical pop music. Solange, however brings us back to a familiar time with her music video for one of the tracks, Binz. Solange clicks open to Photobooth and prances around to this banger, as any of us did back in the early 2000s.
