Get into the (sartorial) team spirit.
Canadian fashion label Frank + Oak is always up to something, and tomorrow the Montreal-based brand will drop a 9-piece Raptors collection in collaboration with the NBA. The pieces that make up the line are directional, minimal and best of all—unisex. The pieces include a crisp Oxford shirt patterned with a subtle team logo, a heather grey waffle knit mock-neck and a leather backpack. The coolest piece might be the two-tone pop-over shirt. The Oxford's mock-neck collar and mix of materials offer a completely new take on fan gear. Even fair-weather fans (hey, no judgement) will be tempted by this sleek collab.
The collection will launch tomorrow online and at Frank + Oak's Queen West and CF Sherway Gardens outposts as well as the Real Sports Apparel shop at the Air Canada Center. The brand is set to release merch for 5 more NBA teams in 2017. Until then, go Raptors, go!
3-Pointer print Oxford shirt ($75)
Drop-shoulder mock neck ($75)
Toronto backpack ($395)
Extended body mock-neck Oxford pop-over ($85)
Because haters gonna hate.
We all know how fun Instagram can be. The comments section though...not so fun. The social media platform (finally!) is working to change all that. Here are the three biggest updates it's rolling out.
1) You can turn comments on and off for individual posts–even after you've posted. One of your posts not getting the love you thought it would? Shut those comments off. Change your mind a few days later? Switch them back on. A few accounts already have this feature, but soon it will be rolling out to everyone.
2) In the past, those with private accounts could only delete followers they'd already approved by blocking them. Now, you can simple remove them as a follower and no, they won't get notified that you did. Think of it as the unfriending of Insta.
3) And now for our favourite update: You can finally like other people's comments! Just tap the little heart icon to show the commenter some love. According to the blog post announcing the new features, being able to like comments "lets you show support and encourages positivity throughout the community."
Pippa Middleton is getting married in May 2017.
Technically, this isn't actually a "royal" wedding, since neither the bride nor the groom are in fact actually royals themselves...although the bride is a royal-in-law, so...
Anyway! Pippa Middleton has set the date for her nuptials to hedge-fund guy James Mathews, so save the date for May 20, 2017 royal-watchers. (PS They couple has actually sent out the save the dates already so if you haven't gotten yours yet...tough luck old chum).
The big event is happening in Berkshire, England, and here's the best part (other than whether Harry will bring Meg as his date): George and Charlotte are in the bridal party! Prince G will be a page boy and the little princess will be a flower girl. Kate's not a bridesmaid, but she apparently will be doing a reading at some point in the ceremony.
"We don't need to be putting black women against each other!"
The Rihanna Navy and the Beyhive have been on not-so-friendly terms on social media following the announcement of the 2017 Grammy Awards nominations.
Although RiRi expressed gratitude for her whopping eight nods, the Navy felt that she was snubbed after Anti didn't receive a nom for Album of the Year over Beyoncé's Lemonade. Naturally, Bey's fans wasted no time in coming to the defence of their Queen.
But Rihanna quickly cleared things up on the 'gram, commenting on a fan's photo, "I'm petty af, yes. But this is just unnecessary! I wish y'all would drop this topic and see things from the bigger picture! We don't need to be putting black women against each other! We deserve to be celebrated and the Grammy Academy agrees!"
So true, Rih.
