Washington Redskins v Pittsburgh Steelers

As the world continues to voice the plight of Black people we are reminded that justice needs to be served for all communities. One organization needs to act right.

For many years Native Americans have felt slighted by the National Football League. The name of the Washington R-dskins team uses a very disrespectful and derogatory term thus Native American groups have tried to their best to get them to be change it but have been unsuccessful. Now the franchise is facing a different pressure. As spotted on The New York Times FedEx is now joining the push.

In 1999 the shipping conglomerate signed a $ 205 million dollar deal to acquire title sponsorship rights  and naming rights to the stadium. On Thursday, July 2 FedEx served the team a notice requesting a prompt change. “We have communicated to the team in Washington our request that they change the team name,” they said in a formal statement.

Mayor Muriel Bowser of Washington is also seeking a change. In an interview with The Team 980 he detailed why it is necessary. “I think it’s past time for the team to deal with what offends so many people,” she explained. “This is a great franchise with a great history that’s beloved in Washington, and it deserves a name that reflects the affection that we’ve built for the team.”

The Washington NFL team released a statement saying the name is undergoing a “thorough review.” Let’s hope they do the right thing and shed the colonizer vibes—it is long overdue.

Megan Thee Stallion, Rihanna Team Up for New Savage x Fenty Lingerie Campaign

Megan Thee Stallion is taking her hit song “Savage” to the next level as the new brand partner for Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty lingerie brand.
The musician appears in the company’s latest campaign, #SavageXTheeStallion, which is part of the brand’s community-led summer campaign initiative where brand partners, ambassadors and influencers create self-produced photoshoots from their homes. The brand is teaming with mixed media artist Rafatoon to put together the campaigns.
Stallion appears in the campaign modeling pieces such as the brand’s Helenca Lace Push-Up Bra and Thong, the T-Shirt Bra and Booty Short and the Balconette Bra and Side Tie Undie.

“Meg is the energy we were looking for,” Rihanna said in a statement. “She is a risk taker with an attitude, character and personality.”
The musician’s appointment as Savage x Fenty brand partner comes after Stallion helped launched the brand’s TikTok account in April with the #SavageChallenge, where she’s seen modelling the brand’s lingerie while dancing along to her hit song. The challenge has since gone viral on the social media platform, with the hashtag recording nearly 800 million views.

Eres, Bonpoint Team Up for Mother, Daughter Swimwear

BEACH LIBERTY: Eres and Bonpoint have teamed up on a collection of swimwear for mothers and daughters, bringing a modern breed of French, bourgeois elegance to the beach — or poolside retreat.
The collection, which drops Monday, includes one- and two-piece bathing suits made with the signature Eres fabric in solids — coral pink and sky blue — and accessories in Liberty fabrics, including a light pareo and a canvas tote bag. Prices range from $ 60 to $ 300.
“It’s an alliance of houses to make our clients dream,” said Marie-Paule Michelli, creative director of Eres. 
Also, Michelli and Bonpoint artistic director Anne-Valerie Hash have known each other over the years; their families even vacationed in the same, Corsican seaside town. 
It is the first time Eres has ventured into the children’s realm and Michelli said she learned about the intricacies of the territory.  
“We learned a good deal of rules that don’t exist in ready-to-wear — norms for children’s wear — it’s very meticulous,” she said, using a French expression that refers to work by an ant. 
“The norms are pretty strict — that’s why there aren’t so many fashion players that operate in children’s wear,” Hash chimed in. She ticked off some examples: ribbons need to be kept short,

Intercos and Campari Team to Manufacture Hand Sanitizers

CHEERS TO HELP: Leading cosmetics manufacturer Intercos Group and spirits-specialist Campari Group have joined forces to produce hydroalcoholic sanitizing gel to distribute to health-care workers operating in the Lombardy region, one of the most affected by the coronavirus epidemic.
In particular, Campari donated batches of pure alcohol — originally intended for its production lines — to the beauty supplier, which transformed and bottled them in its Cosmint facility located at Olgiate Comasco, one-hour drive from Milan. Thanks to the partnership, a first batch of 15,000 hand sanitizers will be distributed to hospitals in need.
“The Intercos Group is confronted with the COVID-19 emergency for months, first with its Chinese plants and now in Italy and in the U.S. and knows very well the importance of supporting the health professionals in the communities exposed by the epidemic,” said the company’s chief executive officer Renato Semerari.
Founded in 1972 by Dario Ferrari, Intercos counts 11 research centers, 15 production plants and 15 sales offices on three continents. At the moment, two facilities in Italy and two in New York are temporarily shut down, in accordance with the respective governments’ restrictions.
In addition to Olgiate Comasco, where the company is producing personal hygiene products, its Garwolin facility

Vin + Omi Work With Team GB Athletes on Recycled Sports Clothing

GOOD SPORTS: The British label Vin + Omi has another eco-minded collection in the pipeline. For fall 2020 the designers have allied themselves with Team GB Olympians and are whipping the athletes’ unused clothing and equipment from sponsors into runway-ready punk pieces.
Omi described the fall 2020 show, which takes place at The Savoy hotel on Feb. 14, as its “largest, most recycled” yet. Team GB sailor Hannah Mills and fencer James Honeybone, who walked in Vin + Omi’s spring/summer 2020 show, contributed their unused pieces.
“We utilized every single bit of a fencing kit — from the blades, to the sabre, to the masks. Everything was chucked into” an entire look, said Omi.
Other highlights include a coat that was made by hand from a sail, as well as a jacket sporting all the Team GB sponsors’ logos jumbled together.
“The pieces are designed to be slightly unwearable to show the awkwardness of the sport being bastardized by advertising,” Omi added. “It’s amazing to see how much branding one sport has at one event.”
For 16 years, the London-based designers have been attempting to push the limit of sustainable clothing production and have dressed celebrities including Beyoncé and Michelle Obama. They also work with private

Serena Williams and Secret Deodorant Team to Promote Gender Equality

Serena Williams is continuing her mission of women’s equality with a new job title.
The tennis champ is Secret Deodorant’s newest brand ambassador, teaming with the P&G-owned brand to promote gender equality in sports.
“[Secret] has a history of supporting women’s issues and fighting for women’s equality,” Williams said in an interview with WWD, ahead of the announcement on Tuesday. “That’s what I do. I fight for equality and I’m vocal about gender bias. It only makes sense for me to join in this charge with Secret.”
Together, Secret and Williams will be conducting a study on gender inequality in sports to see how gender bias plays out for athletes ranging from high school players to professional sports leagues. The brand will then donate $ 1 million to organizations that address these issues.
The partnership is a natural one for Williams, who has routinely been outspoken on gender-inequality issues throughout her career. Williams most recently spoke on her activism at a press conference on July 13 after she competed in Wimbledon, stating: “The day I stop fighting for equality and for people that look like you and me will be the day I’m in my grave.”
She’s also used fashion as a way to communicate her

Kodak Black’s Team Claims Prison Drugged Him Ahead Of Brawl

Kodak Black In Concert - Los Angeles, CA

Source: Scott Dudelson / Getty

Kodak Black was just slapped with 46 more months in the joint after pleading guilty in his federal gun case, despite pleas of leniency. Given the recent dustup with prison security in October, Black probably made it worse on himself but his team claims that he was drugged with a chemical that made him act out.

TMZ reports:

We’re told surveillance video shows Kodak drinking a cup of coffee about 20 minutes before the fight broke out … and his reps believe Kodak’s coffee was spiked with a chemical substance intended to make him lose control.

Our sources say an agent from the FBI testified Wednesday that witnesses said Kodak appeared to be under the influence during the brawl.

As for the fight itself … we’re told Kodak got into it with another inmate, and a corrections officer sprayed KB with mace. Our sources say it took several prison guards to restrain Kodak, who displayed incredible strength after allegedly being drugged.

Bureau of Prisons spokesperson Emery Nelson tells us a staff member was physically assaulted during the fight and was taken to a hospital for treatment.

Black’s attorney said he’s looking into the drugging allegations but little else is known at the time.

This Limited-Edition Tudor Watch Is Inspired by New Zealand’s All Blacks Rugby Team

The Rugby World Cup begins on Sept. 20, and New Zealand’s national rugby team, the All Blacks, are looking to capture its third straight World Cup victory after winning the tournament in 2011 and 2015. In honor of the team’s quest for the cup, luxury watchmaker Tudor has released a new timepiece, the limited-edition Black Bay Chrono Dark. Just 1,181 examples will be produced—a reference to the number of players who have donned an All Blacks uniform—and they’re on sale for $ 5,925 starting today.


The Apple Event: Everything You Need to Know About the iPhone 11, Apple Watch Series 5, and More

The watch is part of Tudor’s global partnership with the All Blacks, who are ambassadors for the brand. And like the players it represents, this watch is built to be extra tough. It’s powered by a COSC-certified movement and features a 41mm matte black steel case, a steel bezel in matte black, a matte black bracelet and clasp, and an anodized aluminum bezel disc with a tachymetric scale. The case, bezel, bracelet, and clasp all get their matte black color through a process called Physical Vapor Deposition, or PVD, where metals are vaporized and then used to coat the surface of the watch—unlike painting, the resulting finish won’t chip.

On the face, it includes features like a chronograph 45-minute counter at the 3 o’clock position and an instant date at 6 o’clock. In addition, it’s waterproof up to 660 feet, so you don’t have to worry about swimming with it.

Rest assured, this watch can definitely handle the bumps and splashes of everyday wear—it’s made for rugby players, after all. Star player Beauden Barrett, who was named the best rugby player in the world in 2016 and 2017, has already reserved watch number 1115.

In other words, if you pick up one of these handsome timepieces, you’ll be in good company.

Tudor is the official timekeeper of the Rugby World Cup, and it’s also supplying all of the referees with traditional Black Bay Chrono watches. If you prefer the classic steel color, pictured above, that model is also available now for $ 5,100.

Whichever one you choose, you’ll get a rugged and stylish timepiece with a bit of rugby history built right in.

Nike, Artist Steven Harrington Team Up for Earth Day Capsule

Nike is getting artistic for Earth Day thanks to a collaboration with artist Steven Harrington.
The sports giant teamed with the Los Angeles-based painter to create a capsule collection intended to inspire love for the planet. Harrington is best known for his colorful California-inspired psychedelic pop works that often include dog and palm tree characters, an aesthetic he transferred to three Nike footwear models.
The Nike Flyleather by Steven Harrington collection includes an Air Force 1, a Blazer and a Cortez, each of which were created using Nike Flyleather, a proprietary sustainable material that uses at least 50 percent recycled leather.
Harrington said Nike reached out to him about a year ago to see if he’d be interested in working on the project, “and when it hit my desk, I was so excited,” he said. “I’m such a fan of the brand and the topic itself.”
Although he has worked with Nike in the past, the “different scope” of this project, and its overriding message about sustainability really hit home.
Harrington admitted that translating his art to footwear required a different mind-set. “In the initial concepting and talking with the designers within Nike,” he said, “I took the notion of footwear completely out of my

Donna Karan, Mashonda Tifrere’s Art Lead Her Team for ‘King Woman’ Exhibit at Urban Zen

Donna Karan has teamed with Mashonda Tifrere’s nonprofit Art Lead Her to put on an all-women exhibit called “King Woman” at Karan’s store and community space Urban Zen.
Pieces from Reisha Perlmutter, Delphine Diallo, Swoon and 12 other emerging and midcareer artists lined the walls of Urban Zen during a recent visit. Tifrere, dressed all in black just like Karan, pointed out one piece that especially moved her by Perlmutter. It’s a painting of a woman with vitiligo, her face peering above a pool of water in which her body’s submerged. Her hair is wet and slicked back.
“Reisha wanted to portray the woman in the portrait as strong and beautiful in her own skin,” Tifrere said. “On opening night, the woman came, and when she saw her picture hanging on the wall, she started bawling.”
There are individual stories like this one behind most of the pieces included in “King Woman”; Tifrere, who curated the showing, said it was imperative to forge relationships with the artists after selecting them to be part of the exhibition. She added she’d found all of them by looking around on Google and Instagram, then meeting them in person at art fairs.

Brands, Recyclers and NYC Department of Sanitation Team Up to Recycle Fashion

Starting Monday, the Ellen MacArthur Foundation is teaming with the New York City Department of Sanitation and NYC Economic Development Corp. for a citywide social media campaign titled #WearNext in order to reduce the amount of clothing being dumped in landfills.
An online map created by the NYC Department of Sanitation will guide people to more than 1,100 locations across the city where they can take clothes they no longer wear. Participating stores and other locations across the city will act as drop-off points.
The campaign, which runs through June 12, also encourages consumers to find ways to repair, reuse, resell or swap old clothing, and invites participants to share their stories on social media using the #WearNext hashtag.
Every year, New York City dumps 200 million pounds of clothing in landfills. Globally, 73 percent of the materials used to produce clothing are landfilled or burned at the end of their life, while less than 1 percent of old clothing goes on to be used to make new clothing.

Diane von Furstenberg, Ashley Longshore Team Up on Art Collection

Diane von Furstenberg and mixed-media artist Ashley Longshore are collaborating on a curated art collection of extraordinary women for International Women’s Month.
After meeting Longshore over tea in London in December, von Furstenberg had the idea to put together a collection of Longshore’s art. She gave Longshore a list of women who have inspired her through their energy and achievements.
“I was immediately impressed by Ashley’s contagious enthusiasm and vibrant talent,” said von Furstenberg. “I knew she was a ‘Woman in Charge,’ and I felt she would be perfect to curate our next inspiration room especially with International Women’s Month approaching. The collaboration felt seamless.”
Longshore, who is based in New Orleans, painted a collection of 37 portraits of such women as Ruth Bader Ginsberg, Jackie Kennedy, Cleopatra, Marlene Dietrich, Oprah Winfrey, Gloria Steinem, Michelle Obama, Elizabeth Taylor, Maya Angelou, Whitney Wolfe Herd and Rosa Parks, some wearing von Furstenberg’s most iconic prints and designs. The curated art collection will be unveiled Thursday during von Furstenberg’s International Women’s Day activities and will live in the flagship at 874 Washington Street in the Meatpacking District through May. The artwork will also be available for purchase.

The three-piece collection reflects Anderson’s approach to fitness and healthy living, with hand-stitched embroidered sayings such as “You Are How You Move,” “Create Balance” and “Lifegiving.”

Tekashi 6ix9ine’s Legal Team Preparing $1.5M Bail Package

Tekashi 6ix9ine is still behind bars but if recent announcements made by his legal team are true, that soon could change. The troubled rapper’s attorney says their side is putting together a seven-figure bail package that will give 69 homebound freedom until his trial.

TMZ reports:

The rapper’s lawyer, Lance Lazarro, tells TMZ … he’s putting a bail package together for the rapper in hopes of getting him sprung from the federal prison facility where he’s being held, so he can enjoy some freedom until his trial begins in September.

We’re told the plan is to ask the court to set 69’s bail at $ 1.5 million, and Lazarro will also make the case that Tekashi’s not a danger to the community … nor is he a flight risk.

6ix9ine’s lawyer says he wants to file the motion before his next scheduled court appearance in late January. If the judge rules in his favor and grants bail, the rapper can await trial from the comfort of his own home once he posts the $ 1.5 mil.

Lazzaro has been on record saying that the artist born Daniel Hernandez will not accept a plea deal and intends to take the racketeering case to trial.
