we’re obsessed

Today in fashion things to get really excited about, Reebok Classics has launched a collaboration with fashion blogger Ari Fitz of TOMBOYISH. Fitz tells us, "[This campaign is meant to] highlight and promote androgynous and tomboy style.” It’s a pretty big deal for such a well-known, huge brand to promote a line that is directly trying to engage with their gender non-nonconforming audience, which is exactly why Fitz is into it. 

 "As a girl who wears menswear every single day and gets called 'sir' on a regular basis, I'm not your typical fashion blogger or vlogger by any means. 'Tomboys' make a bold decision to be ourselves every time we get dressed in the morning or post something online,” she says. And while pop culture has come a long way in recent years by increasing representation of gender-noncomforming people, fashion has not quite caught up.

“Personally, I think it's a huge move for them. I've always loved how Reebok stood behind and showcased strong women. Somehow, we came to believe beauty immediately translated to the hyper-feminine, and frankly, that’s not always the case. My fashion films reflect that, Reebok reflects that, and that's why I knew working together was right.”

According to Fitz, the campaign will be running until the end of 2015. She says she’ll be “releasing original content showcasing how I integrate the brand into my ambiguous AF street style."

"Hope you're okay up there," okay

Billie Eilish paid tribute again to XXXTentacion; this time, for the one-year anniversary of his death. In a series of three posts to her Instagram Stories, Eilish remembered the rapper without naming him directly, writing "miss you," "hope you're okay up there," and "long live you" over black, blank screens. The tribute, screen-grabbed by a fan account and first reported on by NME, has already garnered criticism online.

"Up where baby he's in hell," a popular tweet from @vondylantweets wrote. Jokes aside, Eilish's continued support of the rapper and convenient refusal to acknowledge his long history of violent abuse is extremely disappointing.

Last year on the day of his death, Eilish posted a screengrab of a conversation with XXXTentacion captioned, "the strongest human being ive ever known. all you ever did was care." Months later, she played a tribute song for XXXTentacion, and was called out for her disappointing ignorance of his horrifying history of abuse (notably by NYLON).

One day following her first performance of the song, recordings of XXXTentacion admitting to domestic abuse and stabbing nine people were released by Pitchfork. In April of this year, Eilish defended her performance yet again, insisting her right to mourn while still not acknowledging his actions.
