[Alexander Wang for H&M beanie, Marshall headphones]

After a long, rather draining day, I’m treating myself to a chill, stress-free night of good music. Back when I first started using Spotify, I’d spend a few hours listening to the French Top 100 playlist — I’m not sure if it was to see what it felt like for those non-English speakers who somehow love our music so much or just to feel like I was somewhere else, but I do know that it was always a pretty cool experience. I needed that mental escape again tonight and I got it.

I started having flashbacks to those days when I heard this track from rufyo, a French rapper who’s new to the scene and doing his thing across the pond. The video for his first single, Funambule (Tightrope Walker in English), dropped earlier this month and it’s one of those productions that’s simple, but sweet. Check it out. #pressplay

Wang x H&M: The Selection

Tonight is the night of the highly anticipated Alexander Wang for H&M launch party in NYC, and you can’t even begin to imagine my dread when I realized that I wouldn’t be in the city to attend it. While I’m working on mending my broken heart, I caught a glimpse of the men’s lookbook last night (finally…) and started creating a mental checklist of the pieces I plan on incorporating into my wardrobe! It’s looking like this might be their coolest collab so far.
