While Kanye West’s 10th studio album, Donda has set the hip-hop world afire (along with a recreated model of his childhood home), ‘Ye has had the fashion world buzzing with his Donda-era attire.

Ahead of an August 26 listening event at Soldier Field in Chicago, the chic music icon was pictured in a new outfit that sparked a sell-off of Gap puffy jackets and earned accolades for his contrasting designed endless denim leather pants. Straying from its usual denim creations, West’s bottoms featured black leather accented by the repeating “endless denim” motif stretching across the back of its legs.

There are two versions of the endless denim leathers, one featuring green and the other white Gothic scripted fonts, each with a premium black leather base. The snazzy slacks sport a classic, five-pocket jean design with matching rivets and buttons, along with distinct, paneled shins. Along with the script, the leg backs show off a rubberized “endless” patch at the waist.

The clothes match the mood, creating the crackling energy surrounding West, in a now-familiar part of his album rollout strategy. Given that ‘Ye spends as much time focused on his fashion enterprises as his music, it’s an expected parallel move.

And in the Donda era, the endless denim old-world lettering appears along with bullet-proof vests and a noir color palette that pops with primary colors, underscoring a childhood and familial exploration that’s shaped by dark undertones.

This turn away from neutral and earth tones also describes puffer jackets sported at listening parties in Atlanta. Aligning with West’s fashion-forward theme, the jackets were the first items to debut from the June 2021 Yeezy x Gap collection. The $200 bright blue recycled nylon puffy coat sold out on its first day of release. And according to Edited, arrivals since the start of the year are up 56% year-over-year and 34% compared to 2019. This means if you want to get your hands on a pair of these exclusive pants, you better act soon.

Priced at $1,800, both the black leather with Less Green and Black Leather with Less White jeans are now available now on endless denim’s website, lessdenim.com/collections/main.

Doxa’s Sub 200T watch is a new, smaller version of the Classic 300 design
Doxa introduces smaller version of Sub 300
Doxa Sub 200T series

Doxa watches aren't exactly the word on the tip of anyone's tongue when they think of their favorite brands; however, they have developed their own community, and some might dub them a cult following. The brand recently unveiled its latest Doxa watch, the Sub 200T which has sent a lightning strike through the hearts of fans, as it's unmistakably more compact than the iconic 300T and 600T models. The lack of smaller options has always been a common complaint among fans of the brand, and with consumer behavior veering more and more in this direction, it's no surprise that the latest iteration is just 39mm. The iconic design of the Classic 300 has been shrunk down to something more compact, sleek, and contemporary.
The new Doxa Sub 200T has a color for every taste

On top of that, the kaleidoscope of color options available from Doxa watches will surely satisfy every taste, from those who like bright and sporty models to those who prefer something a little more classic and subdued. The dial features a sunray-finished design with a luminous sunburst effect, and it comes with two strap options: a stainless steel bracelet with a "beads of rice" design and an FKM rubber strap that comes with folding clasps and ratcheting wetsuit extensions.

Hublot Big Bang in Glacier Blue

The newest addition to the Hublot MP-11 collection is a formidable presence, measuring a whopping 45mm in diameter and 14.4mm in thickness, so you'll need some major confidence if you want to sport this beast on your wrist. The inaugural Sapphire Big Bang was introduced in 2016 and since then the brand has delighted fans with an array of color iterations, from other sapphire colors to purple and orange. Now, Glacier Blue has been introduced, just in time to keep you cool this summer (in attitude, not temperature, unfortunately.)
Hublot: The Big Bang MP-11 in Glacier Blue

This Big Bang MP-11 features a 14-day power reserve, which is achieved through seven series-coupled barrels arranged in a horizontal configuration, and all of that can be viewed by the wearer. The truly vibrant Glacier Blue (seriously, the blue is so bright you'll feel like you're about to start seeing your breath) is made with a fresh chemical composition but still shares the same properties as sapphire: luminous, and able to withstand scratches.
Technical specifications
This Hublot watch will leave you completely mesmerized for several hours before you even think about the technical specifications, though there are some exceptional details to go over. Inside this MP-11 is the HUB9011 Manufacture manual-winding skeleton power reserve movement. As we mentioned above, there are seven series-coupled barrels, but they've been arranged in a coaxial and vertical configuration so the watch is able to maintain a super slim profile of just 10.9mm. All tied together like a bow on top is the blue transparent structured rubber strap with a titanium deployant buckle clasp.
