TUSKEGEE AIRMEN



Happy Black History Month everyone! I was super lucky to find this Tuskegee Airmen tee at a local vintage shop and took it as an opportunity to give myself a little history lesson!

The Tuskegee Airmen were a group of African-American pilots and support personnel formed in 1941 at HBCU Tuskegee University in Tuskegee, Alabama. They were the first group of black pilots to serve in the US Military despite Jim Crow Laws that had barred African-American pilots from flying before. The Tuskegee Airmen became one of the most respected groups during World War II and played a major role in ending US Military segregation altogether. Check out tuskegeeairmen.org to learn more!

VINTAGEOUS RAGS


Vintageous Rags is a UK based vintage, retro and reworked boutique serving up the most consistently on point selection of 80s and 90s good-good I've come across in a hot minute. If you know me, you know that I have an undying love of all things retro, which is why I jumped at the chance to work with the quickly growing brand.

I picked out this bomber because I'm kind of having a moment with primary colours. It also gave me some very @badgalriri vibes which is always a bonus. I think the yellow American Apparel turtleneck crop top and blue mirrored sunnies really pull the whole look together.

You can check Vintageous Rags out here on ASOS Marketplace and here on Depop. They're also planning to open up a location here in Toronto which I will definitely keep you guys posted on!

More photos after the jump!

It's been announced that Twigs will be the Creative Director of the Nike Women's Spring Zonal Strength Tights campaign. Twigs says that she sees the collab as an opportunity "to inspire people who want to use their bodies in a positive way…in order to push people to be healthy and understand that, through any genre of sport, they can be the best versions of themselves."
