The 2018 Levi’s Pride Collection is giving us all of the happy feels

Levi's etched its place in fashion history when it first invented the blue denim jean back in the late 1800s. Right now, it's etching a place in our hearts with the release of the Levi's 2018 Pride Collection.

Flower power – Tyler, the Creator and Converse drop the next round of colourful collab GOLF le FLEUR*

Hip-hop and sneakers go together like peas and carrots – it’s a simple fact. The two cultures are so intrinsically linked that it just makes sense when artists and brands link up to collaborate. Sometimes these pairings end up being a dubious cash-grab, with poor adoring fans buying the shoes simply because a name is attached. Other times, the world is gifted with a collection that is totally and genuinely rad – a case in point being the teaming up of Tyler, the Creator and Converse to create GOLF le FLEUR* more

This majestic little thing just does precisely what it wants, which is what makes it the perfect namesake for a clothing label that is loud, proud and unapologetic. Meet Magpie Goose, the fashion social enterprise that’s kicking ass and making noise. more
