Canadian artist stikes a pose for Rolling Stone magazine

Under the eye of photographer Mark Seliger, The Weeknd – also known as Abel Tesfaye – opened up about his life and career for Rolling Stone. The Canadian artist was styled with a casual zipped jacket, a pair of jeans and a pair of dark boots for the shoot, remaining true to his fashion sense.

On his iconic hair style

“I want to be remembered as iconic and different,” he says. “So I was like, ‘Fuck it — I’m gonna let my hair just be what it wants.’ I’ll probably cut it if it starts interfering with my sight. I can kind of see it right now. But if I cut it, I’d look like everyone else. And that’s just so boring to me.”

On drugs use

“I never needed detox or anything,” he says. “But I was addicted in the sense of ‘Fuck, I don’t want to spend this day without getting high.'” For a while he was homeless and couch-surfing; he didn’t talk to his mom for a year. “Like, ’08 to 2010 — those are my hazy years,” Tesfaye says. “I have this lyric that goes, ‘I’m not scared of the fall/I’ve felt the ground before.’ And in this industry, I’m not really scared of failing, because I already know what it means to be on the ground.”

On his encounter with Taylor Swift

“She actually schooled me on my own shit,” Tesfaye says. “She was like, ‘I’ve been listening to ‘The Morning’ [from House of Balloons] for years — it’s one of my favorite songs ever!’ I mean, she might have just Googled it. But she seemed genuine.”

“But the whole time she was talking,” he says, “she was kind of, like, petting my hair? I think she was just drawn to it — she must have been a little gone off a few drinks. And of course I’m not going to be like, ‘Hey, can you stop?’ I mean, it felt good! But when she started petting my hair, that’s when I was like, ‘I definitely need a drink.'”

Lacoste goes global for the Spring/Summer 2016 fashion show

For his Spring/Summer 2016 collection, Felipe Oliveira Baptista takes on comfy, light and somehow whimsical ensembles. From the long large trousers to the summery trench coats including the pure and refined white clothing, Lacoste attempted to toy between modern shapes and idiosyncratic traditional cuts.

Just like a squad of fashion superheroes, some silhouettes walked in the Lacoste fashion show wearing capes-like red pieces clothing, while some others sported a classic combination of navy blue and white outfits.

Yet, in a patriotic – and surprising twist – Felipe Oliveira Baptista concludes his New York fashion show displaying a combination of flags: think Stars and Stripes, Union Jack, or the Korean flag, the Taegukgi. A collection full of colors carried with success by a myriad of diverse models could mean but one thing: Lacoste goes global.

Anyone who knows their fare share of footwear collaborations will probably be familiar with the successful collaboration between Amsterdam based footwear label, Filling Pieces, and American based clothing line, Raised by Wolves, which was released late October. However, it appears as if we could see another collaboration from Filling Pieces very soon.

This news follows a sneak peak at a possible three way collaboration that broke over social media when designer Guillaume posted a picture on Instagram yesterday. The photograph in question contained an item of footwear from Falling Pieces in which brands Ronnie Fieg and KITH NYC were tagged in.

So, what could this mean? Well, if you look closely at the picture, you can see what appears to be the words ‘Ronnie’ and ‘Fieg’ stitched into the back of the shoes, above the heel. Branding from KITH is also present throughout the shoe yet alongside the expected Filling Pieces look.

We at PAUSE definitely like what we see here. The use of the well hailed camel brown and the chunky sole definitely makes this a contender in the show to transition you from your summer footwear to your winter boots. We are really excited to see more of this possible collaboration and just like you should be, we are keeping our eyes peeled.
