Beyoncé Collaborates With Balmain

Published

on

Just before Coachella was rechristened Beychella, Beyoncé Knowles and Balmain creative director Olivier Rousteing had an idea. It happened in a rehearsal, while Beyoncé and her dancers were practicing in their Balmain-made looks inspired by the marching band uniforms of America’s historically black colleges and universities. It clicked: Why not make a Beyoncé x Balmain collaboration that could make those poignant graphics available to all of Bey’s fans clamoring for a piece of history?

On Friday, July 13, Balmain will launch a three-piece Balmain x Beyoncé collection in its Paris flagship, with the items going on sale on balmain.com and beyonce.com the following day. Comprised of the yellow and pink sweatshirts Beyoncé wore on stage at Coachella, the collection also includes a black tee with the same sorority-inspired graphic.

Proceeds from the collaboration will benefit the United Negro College Fund, following Beyoncé’s $100,000 donation to four historically black colleges after her Coachella set. “The donation was the main goal of this collaboration,” says Rousteing. “We don’t forget where we come from. This is really, really important – I come from an orphanage, you know. I think there is something really emotional about our collaboration.”

on

The perfect and right eyebrow shape can make your appearance more bright and elegant. So basically we all know of the struggles some ladies go through in drawing a perfect eyebrows for our parties and outing. Here is to having perfectly shaped eyebrows that don’t require any makeup!

Microblading is definitely not the eyebrow tattoos of yesteryear — remember when people would shave off their brow hair and tattoo unnatural-looking lines back on? The cosmetic technique that has become increasingly popular in the last couple of years. It promises bolder brows with a natural appearance a small, handheld tool topped off with microneedles, which deposit pigment under the first layer of skin via strokes that resemble brow hairs.

Unlike traditional tattoos, microblading is not permanent. Microblading is semi-permanent, meaning it lasts anywhere from six to 36 months, depending on who you ask. “After the initial treatment, a touch-up or ‘perfection session’ is needed within four to eight weeks, then every six to 12 months,” says Kler Rosenberg, head trainer at Microblading Academy USA and owner of Brow & Beauty Bar in Boca Raton, Florida.

And yes it exist in Ghana too. I know of a very popular place in Osu called the BEAUTY BANK LASH N BROWS known for their microblading.

Ghanaian Model/ Blogger GlennSamm Is Set To Release #KvngsOfTheNewSchool Merchandise

Published

on

Africans in Africa and all over the world are highly perceived to be from kingly roots and royal background. Over the years, this has being expressed in the way we dress, speak, walk and regard ourselves – our own way of appreciating the enormous beauty enshrined in African uniqueness.

It is in this regard, that GlennSamm birthed an idea to empower Ghanaians and Africans in general to comfortably portray their styles of dressing established by our respective culture.

Glenn Samm is a Ghanaian entertainment blogger associated with renowned blogs like eboxafrica.com and disturbinggh.net etc. Additionally, he wields a graphic designing career from IPMC and a fashion modelling career from Exopa modelling agency

KVNGSOFTHENEWSCHOOL, as the title of the merchandise is one of many ways through which Ghanaians and Africans can portray their identity. The cliche of always having to wear a suit and tie for every official or high class ceremony, where a piece of rich kente neatly wrapped over the right shoulder could do that job, sickens me – GlennSamm

He established that the KVNGSOFTHENEWSCHOOL merchandise dealt more with the style of dressing than the type of dress being worn.

You can decide to make a custom suit out of a Shuka cloth, but you would not represent enough or identify yourself as a Masai from Kenya or Tanzania.

Therefore KvngsOfTheNewSchool is not just a merchandise, but an inclusive movement of Afrocentric people and Afro futurists who wish to eventually see a truly independent Africa, an Africa rid of toxic western cosmologies and indoctrination.

The launch is set to come off tomorrow, Friday the 29th of June, 2018 to mark his birthday where some samples of the merchandise will be showcased. Additionally, GlennSamm the creator of the merchandise, also reveals that revenue gathered from the first sales show will be directed towards a charity event yet to be established.

This is an invitation to all readers of this piece, we entreat you to duly support the movement, patronize the merchandise and possibly be present at the launch
