@TragedyKhadafi feat. Thea van Seijen – “Nuff Said”

Independent clothing brand Nuff Said Amsterdam and directors Fin Renard & Jarret Robertson takes you from New York to Amsterdam along with Queens veteran Tragedy Khadafi in the video for Nuff Said’s self-titled concept single, which includes a jazzy vocal from Thea van Seijen. The video shows a young woman’s journey through the European city as Tragedy spits hard lyrics in the streets of New York. The guys at Nuff Said quoted, “As most of you might know New York City was once New Amsterdam, and that’s the reason why we combine these two awesome cities in our brand.”

@BoboNorco Launches @KNDM – First Ever Urban Couture‏

After months of anticipation the time has finally come. The world’s first ever urban couture clothing line, Kindom Couture has officially launched and is currently fulfilling orders. Bay Area rap artist, Bobo Norco, took the world by storm in 2014 with two international hit radio singles, 1.6 million YouTube views, a performance at South by Southwest, and set an independent artist record by being on the cover of ten magazines in just six months.

One of the things fans have admired most was Norco’s unique and exclusive style of clothing. His Instagram followers have marveled at his trendy wardrobe, exclusive accessories, and his $250,000 shoe collection which has its own bedroom in his seven bedroom NorCal residence.

While he was playing in the celebrity flag football game at the 2015 Super Bowl, Norco was approached with an offer of starting his own fashion line. Norco agreed to be the spokesperson and creative director of the first ever urban couture which he called Kindom Couture dba KNDM.

KNDM offers high quality joggers, jerseys, hoodies, hats, and much more for people looking for top-of-the line clothing made from exclusive, top-quality fabrics all while guaranteeing to be the most comfortable clothing you have ever owned.

KNDM has received a lot of interest and promotion from Norco’s celebrity friends and professional athletes but each item is priced right so it can fit every customer’s budget. “This clothing line is another dream come true”, says Bobo Norco. “I have always took pride in my fits and I would never put out clothes or hats that I would not wear myself.”

Kindom Couture’s women’s director Corina McBride has also announced the summer women’s line which includes all new dresses, athletic wear, and swimwear. KNDM is receiving and shipping orders via their website and will soon be available at exclusive boutiques throughout the country.

@ixstyle – Water For Children

Ix Style (pronounced “eye ex”) is the Mayan word for “water” and for every pair of their sandals purchased, they will donate to provide clean drinking water to children in Guatemala, which is where founder Francesca Kennedy’s family is originally from. “I was inspired to help after seeing the once beautiful Lake Atitlan in Guatemala that I swam in as a child,” she says. “It’s now overrun with blue green algae and a new generation of children collecting and drinking the contaminated water.” 

They have designed a capsule collection with Gap that just launched for Women’s International Month and a capsule collection with Gwyneth Paltrow that launched on her site Goop.com last summer. They also designed an exclusive women’s style this Summer for J.Crew that is available on their site now.

Please read about Francesca’s inspiration, water mission, and ​their​ support ​for amazing ​female artisans at www.ixstyle.com.  The less time children spend collecting contaminated water, the more time they can spend in school.​
