Illustrations 2 Sailor Moon, Betty Boop And Princess Bubblegum To Replace Kate, Arizona and Karlie?

New York-based designer and fashion consultant Jerome Le Maar aka TheStyleMonk has dressed our favorite female comic characters in the most significant pieces from the Spring/Summer 2013 collections from designers Pierre Balmain, Balenciaga, Givenchy and others. And indeed, while looking at these illustrations I wonder why no one before ever had the idea of putting Sailor Moon, Betty Boop and Co. (who by the way all have the perfect model’s measurements) into designer pieces.

ASAP Rocky Cover Of Complex December 2012

ASAPComplexA 540x360 ASAP Rocky Cover Of Complex December 2012

A$AP Rocky grabs the cover of Complex magazine’s December 2012 issue, and chats about the imminent launch of his long-awaited album, Live.Love.A$AP.  The article includes a q&a in which Rocky, aka Rakim Mayers, discusses the changes that have come with fame, including some painful losses (which sorry but he had to be THE only one surprised by betrayal of a crew member! I mean that kind of thing is biblical).

Complex: What’s changed the most in the past year for you? Rocky: I had a lot of close friends stab me in the back for their own greedy desires. I never saw that coming. I never thought my real niggas would be on some fuck shit with me, and do wack shit. I’m a good nigga, and a lot of people fuck with me and then leave with these accusations trying to fuck up what I worked hard for.

He also brings a little fire by stating flat out that Kanye’s fashion is influenced by him.

Complex: Do you think you’re influencing people like Kanye? Rocky: Of course. That’s obvious. [Laughs.] We’re all in the same circle. He’s way richer than me, but of course he’s influenced by me. C’mon, bro. I made waxed denim cool in hip-hop. Fucking waxed denim and rips in jeans. Nobody else did that. I don’t give a fuck. I didn’t know what I was doing. These jeans are Balmain, and I wear them with a Supreme jacket. Of course I’m influencing.

RasheedSamuel (1)

As big fans of street photography, we were so excited to discover the work of 18-year-old Rashid Samuel, who has been documenting the “mash-up” looks lately sported by New York City’s stylish teen population on his Tumblr, Versus & Co, for the past nine months. Check out our Q&A interview with him below, where he talks about photography and NYC street fashion, and see additional shots of his work after the flip.

HS: When and why did you start taking street photos?

RS: I started off doing videography as a hobby. I video taped events like Sweet 16s, parties and fashion shows.  I started taking pictures, catching people while they’re walking and stopping people last summer. Being out in Manhattan everyone has a different style and I just wanted to catch it. Now I do street photography for enjoyment. I notice there are other people doing it but no one is focusing as much on the 17-21 year-old age group.
