hip hop grandpas of Nairobi

They’re known as Kabangu, and they’re a group of hip hop grandpas who’ve been around since the 1980s — or so it appears.

This ultimate band of “true hip hop heads” allegedly double as security guards by night in Kariobangi – one of Nairobi’s informal settlements.
By day, the four men are said to educate and mentor up and coming talents within the hip hop scene. A Kenyan photographer Osborne Macharia and stylist Kevin Abraham have created an imaginary supergroup of octogenarians.  Known as Kabangu, the fictional band has proven so popular many believe they actually exist ! source : cnn






Style Icon & Fashion Industry’s darling Iris Apfel joins the Supermodels – go girl !

Interior designer Iris Apfel, 93, is fast becoming one of the fashion industry’s most sought-after models, having just unveiled her second high-profile ad campaign in as many months.

Apfel, the fashion eccentric who’s also the face of Alexis Bittar for spring (she stars alongside Tavi Gevinson in the campaign), shows off her quirky, colorful sense of style in the ads, pairing one of Spade’s pink handbags with green trousers, blue polka-dotted socks and a giant white bow. Kloss, who favors a more classic, all-American look, is elegantly dolled up in white. Each model’s aesthetic couldn’t be more different, but they look lovely and harmonious sitting on a park bench together.

Bold Union Square Loft, NY styled by Ryan Korban

In an all-loft building in the Union Square area of Manhattan, designer Ryan Korban was tasked with making a wide-open, cold space feel like a home. Luckily, the client—a professional skateboarder—had a compelling art collection that became the jumping-off point for the home’s design. “The client had a ton of his own exciting artwork, which really dictated what the space should look like,” Korban says. source : domaine
