Chris Hemsworth’s Watch Is Thin But Powerful

Welcome to Watches of the Week, where we'll track the rarest, wildest, and most covetable watches spotted on celebrities.This lesson in power coupling comes courtesy of Elsa Pataki and Chris Hemsworth, who walked the red carpet this week to promote Pataki’s upcoming Netflix action movie Interceptor while embodying the adjective “smoldering.” If you can tear your eyes away from Hemsworth’s piercing gaze for a moment, you’ll also notice the other power pairing here: his ultra-thin rose gold Bulgari Octo. While it’s not the most famous octagonal-bezeled watch out there, its razor-thin case and equally slim movement make it ideal for slipping under a shirt cuff on the red carpet. Also this week, Idris Elba goes all-in on Gucci and Austin Butler swaggers in Cartier.Don ArnoldChris Hemsworth’s B...

The 15 Best Drugstore Face Sunscreens of 2022

Photo: @kaitlyn_mclintock When it comes to sunscreen, there are two universal truths. The first is that it's intrinsic to any skincare routine. (Please, please, please practice safe sun, people!) The second is that you don't have to pay an exorbitant amount of money to get a quality formula. After all, effective doesn't mean expensive. That goes for face sunscreen too. Just because it comes from...

The Designer Rubber Clogs Are Here

The most covetable kicks from summer seasons past have been delightfully unexpected and just the right amount of quirky. Our Legacy’s disco-y Camion mule is fit for a jaunt on the Italian coast or a sweaty night out dancing in Soho. The outdoorsy Merrell Hydromoc feels just as practical and fashionable as when it first wooed menswear’s inner circle during the early days of the pandemic. If you thought that the days of bizzaro summertime footwear were behind us, get ready for another season of out-there kicks. Collections from both Bottega Veneta and Prada feature high-style, foamy rubber kicks that will keep you looking cool all summer long.Bottega Veneta has been on a footwear streak for a while now. Thanks to a stellar boot program, the somewhat niche bag brand became a global powerhouse...

Austin Butler Is the King of Cannes

Austin Butler is still coming up for air from his intense experience of portraying Elvis Presley in the upcoming Baz Luhurmann-directed biopic—but that air happens to be the salty French sea breeze at the Cannes Film Festival, and it seems to be working for him.The journey of Luhurmann’s Elvis to Cannes has been a long and winding one, drawn out over four pre- and mid-pandemic long years that sent Butler down a serious Elvis rabbithole. (Infamously, it was the bellwether event of Tom Hanks, who plays Elvis’s manager in the film, testing positive for COVID-19 in March 2020, that initially halted production.) In his recent a profile in the June/July issue of GQ, the actor admitted that he’s very much still got the King on the brain: “You can lose touch with who you actually are. And I defini...

Newlyweds Travis Barker and Kourtney Kardashian Kept It Fashion Goth for Their Italian Wedding

Last summer, then-fledgling couple Travis Barker and Kourtney Kardashian traveled to the Italian city of Venice, where they sipped Aperol spritzes, ate gelato cones, and kissed each other while wearing various sexy-goth outfits and all-black loungewear. One afternoon, they wore matching black hoodies studded with metal spikes.This past weekend, the pair ventured to the opposite coast of Italy, where they were married in a formal wedding ceremony in Portofino, once again wearing sexy-goth outfits. Indeed, for the duration of the wedding weekend, the entire extended Kardashian-Barker family and many other attendees joined them in wearing sexy-goth outfits, almost entirely outfitted in head-to-toe Dolce & Gabbana. (The designers “hosted” the wedding, which took place on the designers’ Vil...

11 Best Fitness Watches For Men in 2022: Apple Watch, Garmin, Fitbit, More

The companion app calculates your daily recovery score and the amount of sleep you got the night prior to estimate your performance today—this helps promote better sleep hygiene and awareness of your preparedness for a high-intensity cardio workout. The app also compares the amount of sleep you actually got versus the amount of sleep your body really needed (which, to be fair, is something other trackers and smartwatches can do, too). So why all the hoopla around what is basically a glorified sleep tracker? It's the genius design that allows you to keep it on, *always—*you charge the things with a removable charging pod, so you never miss any data whatsoever. If that seems like overkill to you, you're not in the target market. But there are loads of data nuts out there, and if you're willi...

Kanye Might Have Topped Himself With These Enormous Balenciaga Boots

I could hear them before I could see them. At Balenciaga’s Spring 23 show, held on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange, most of the attendees had taken their seats when a sort of rubbery creaking approached from the other side of a trading terminal. It was Ye, neé Kanye West, wearing the largest boots I’ve ever seen. Which is saying something, considering Ye himself has introduced colossal, OSHA-approved stompers like the Red Wing 3094s into the men’s fashion lexicon. But Ye’s new Balenciagas, which would officially debut on the runway moments later, take his love of exaggerated proportions (and what one writer dubbed “shale country chic”) to even-more-provocative heights.Balenciaga calls them the Steroid Boots, a conceptual follow-up to the viral galosh-boots the brand released with ...

Seiko Dress Watch: The Easiest Way to Get A Legendary Silhouette on Your Wrist

Wedding season is officially back. Dry clean the tux! Steam press that one cufflink shirt you wear twice a year! Brush up on your dress code minutiae! And then resign yourself to a long summer of playing it down the middle, sartorially speaking—for the most part, at least. A conventional black tie event might not be the time to call an audible in service of your own swerve-y agenda, but it does present a wrist-sized opportunity to flex a little personal style, albeit in a subtle way. We're talking, of course, about a good dress watch. Not only will the right one enliven your stiffest monkey suit, you'll still be wearing it years after the cake’s been cut and everyone's too bone-weary to do the hora. But here's the catch: because dress watches are designed to sync up with your swankiest tai...

Virgil Abloh’s Louis Vuitton Air Force 1 Is Here

News that Abloh, who was the artistic director of Louis Vuitton menswear at the time of his death late last year, would be putting his spin on proverbial Nike shoe (with Vuitton as a luxurious third collaborator) arrived last June, and it felt like a full-circle moment for a designer who built his Off-White label by making unauthorized riffs on branded designer goods, in turn riffing on the “knock-ups” legacy of Harlem atelier Dapper Dan. The sneaker, officially referred to as the Louis Vuitton and Nike “Air Force 1” by Virgil Abloh, made its debut earlier this year, in an edition of 200 pairs that sold for a record-breaking $25.3 million in auction at Sotheby’s, with proceeds going to a scholarship fund for Black fashion students in Abloh’s name.Louis VuittonThis past weekend, an installa...
