Tonight, Kanye West simultaneously aired his highly anticipated film, “Runaway”, across MTV, MTV2 and BET, and streamed live on MTV.com, BET.com and VH1.com. The video is of epic proportions. We’re digging the cinematography and the direction took on this project. On twitter, Kanye said, “That’s is some MJ shit!” Yeah, we think he’d be right in saying that. Shutting down three major cable channels, taking over the Trending Topics board on Twitter, and having it streamed live to an uncapped international audience? The scale’s been tipped, but we really didn’t expect anything less from Kanye.
By now, you’ve probably seen this trailer floating around in the blogosphere and well, just in case you haven’t, we’ve got it for you here. “Influencers” is a short documentary that explores what it means to be an influencer and how trends & creativity become contagious today in music and fashion. Plenty of New York’s most influential creatives are asked for their opinion throughout this short clip, including Jeff Staple of Staple Design and Deidre Maloney, co-founder of BPMW.
Look for the “Influencers”, the film to release sometime this fall.

Burberry Winter Storms is a capsule collection within the Burberry London collection which features plenty of ready to wear items for both genders as well as children. The lineup ranges from trench coats and other outerwear to denim and knitwear as well as a gambit of accessories. We’re digging the timepieces with studded straps as well as the umbrellas. The details are immense and are hovering around a colour palette which includes neutrals such as black, white, grey, stormy white and dark nickel metal.
The Burberry Winter Storms Capsule collection is available now at select Burberry shops worldwide as well as Burberry.com.
