    RIP Virgil Abloh, a true superhero who was a visionary that influenced and inspired so many of us.   The process behind the pink Raf Simons sweater that Kyle Kuzma wore and why he's the only person who could pull it off. Toreno and Kuz went viral and made a meme with it without using photoshop. When picking clients, if it doesn't inspire Toreno creatively it's not worth it for him regardless of the price tag. How important is fashion, self-expression, and style? It's the first visual cue for anyone whose meeting you for the first time.

    Why is it that the 6'7” guy is always the butt of the joke?” Your Auntie's favorite intern asks that question a lot when he and Ian are joined by another famous 6'7” guy, Shaqir O'Neal. They get into some of the hottest collabs currently on the market and imagine up some collabs we want to see. Take a look at the league this week in fashion, discuss what's working and what's got to go and ask what it felt like to sit on Rick Owen's. But first, Ian “it's never too late to apologize” Pierno apologizes for a Jalen Green no no and tells us how he sneaked into a Rüfüs Du Sol concert.
