A First Look at the Staple x Timberland “Polar Night” Collection

Spotted at this season’s iteration of AGENDA New York, a new collaboration between Staple and Timberland has surfaced comprised of three unique footwear styles. As both brands hail from the Northeast where gear is designed to withstand all weather conditions, the collection draws inspiration from a phenomenon known as the “Polar Night,” in which the darkness of night can last for more than 24 hours in certain regions on earth, at certain times of the year. Thus, the three-piece collection douses a few of Timberland’s lesser-known models in black, contrasted with touches of red and white, topped off with hits of reflective details and subtle cobranding.

Take a first look at the collaborative collection above and look for the three styles to hit select retailers in the coming months.

OWN’s ‘Light Girls’ Twitter Reactions

Oprah’s OWN Network Documentary “Light Girls” got tongues wagging & thumbs typing furiously last night — from debating if the doc demonized dark women, to noting the surprisingly brown women selected to speak on from a light-skinned perspective, to the raw foolishness honesty from the men who claim to prefer light skinned mates — Twitter reactions ranged from applause, to confusion, to downright outrage over the coverage of the sensitive subject matter:

Peep a few more of the thoughts, comments, and (sometimes hilarious) introspection Oprah’s latest documentary brought about after the flip:

H&M Modern Essentials Collection Selected by David Beckham

For Spring 2015 Swedish fast fashion retailer H&M expands its relationship with football star David Beckham. For the new season, Beckham will choose his favourite menswear pieces from the Modern Essentials collection at H&M, to create Modern Essentials selected by David Beckham. The football star is known for his impeccable style and dressing and therefore having him select items that every men should be having in his wardrobe is actually an interesting approach by Swedish brand, rather than pretending for the star to actually design a collection.

“Modern Essentials selected by David Beckham focuses on the important key pieces of the season, each updating a men’s classic in fresh fabrics, colours and fits for spring 2015. Key pieces include a linen bomber jacket; a white chalk-washed denim jacket; a car coat; a sharp linen blazer; a city-slick polo shirt and the perfect poplin white shirt.”

Just like in previous seasons, there will also be again an H&M x David Beckham Bodywear collection. Both the Modern Essentils Collection and the Bodywear Collections by David Beckham will release at select H&M stores on March 5.

Oil steady at $49 after IMF cuts growth forecast

A man fills up his car at a petrol station in RomeBy Jack Stubbs London (Reuters) – Brent crude oil prices steadied around $49 a barrel on Tuesday after the International Monetary Fund cut its forecast for global economic growth in 2015 implying lower demand for fuel. Global growth is projected at 3.5 percent for 2015 and 3.7 percent for 2016, the IMF said in its latest World Economic Outlook report, reducing its forecast by 0.3 percentage points for both years. "New factors supporting growth – lower oil prices, but also depreciation of euro and yen – are more than offset by persistent negative forces," said Olivier Blanchard, the IMF's chief economist. U.S. crude, also known as West Texas Intermediate or WTI, was trading at $47.52, down $1.17 from Friday's close.
