Future Garbage started out as a DIY project for its founder David Matthew Olson. It began as a small company with a cult following for his thrifted Destiny’s Child tees and jackets. But ruled with his fashion ethics, David found new purpose for his wit and creativity. Hence, the start of Future Garbage. His designs use “fashion's native languages of garment messaging, advertising and marketing copy to critique the industry's ills,” Fashionista.com reports. David also points out, "I wanted to make political statements more than fashion statements.” Essentially, his work is the divergence of ‘90s style and a commentary on today’s feminism and other political issues. 

2. Nike brings back childhood nostalgia with PlayStation sneakers.

Called the PG2, the pair sports a colorway that resembles the same colors as a PlayStation controller’s buttons—green, blue, pink and purple. It has glow-in-the-dark rubber soles and a starry galaxy print on the sock liner. But the most unique feature of the shoe is its tongue that vibrates with the press of a secret button. While the battery isn’t replaceable, its lifespan extends up to 150 hours. The shoes are slated to be available for worldwide purchase by February 10, retailing at $110 a pair.

3. Elton John will be decked out in Gucci for his farewell tour.

After 50 years on the stage, Elton John will embark on a three-year Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour. The 70-year-old singer will be wearing outfits exclusively made by luxury house Gucci.

In a WWD report, Elton shares, “[Alessandro’s designs are] humorous and fun and beautifully made.”

Furthermore, Elton mentions that his farewell tour isn’t an adieu to music. Instead, it's signaling a new era for him as he continues to create music and write more musicals. His priorities, however, have simply changed. “My priorities now are my children and my husband and my family,” the singer says. His 300-date tour will begin on September 8 in the US.
