(And Other Things)

In Bookstores

The New York Times bestselling author is back with his new book about, quite frankly, movies (and other things). Serrano does a wonderful job outlining the insightful and nuanced pockets of pop culture that only come through in cinema. It's a fever dream of sorts where a special version of the Academy Awards is created specifically for rom-coms and an NBA-style draft is held for the very best and most memorable moments in gangster movies.

Nike x Sacai Blazer Mid
Black/Wolf Grey Sneaker

10:00 am EDT at Nike

In collaboration with Japanese high fashion label Sacai, two iconic Nike shoes were fused together for a hybrid, double-themed design. After the first collaboration sold out instantly, these will no doubt go fast also. The unique silhouette combines the Nike Dunk and Blazer, and features double tongues, shoelaces and swooshes with a co-branded label on the heel tab.
