Hot Collaborations

Vashtie’s Violette x Beats By Dre Collaboration Party

Vashtie gave viewers a sneak peek of her Violette (her clothing line) and Beats By Dre collaboration party. Jasmine Solano and Young Guru mastered the 1’s and 2’s as all the cool kids in New York City came out to celebrate Vashtie’s latest achievement.

Earlier this year, the video director and clothing designer was tapped to create a limited edition of her very own Beats by Dre headphones in connection to Violette’s latest New York collection. Vashtie created the “Taxi Cab” design to pay homage to New York City. With its checkered print headband and yellow-orange earpads, the headphones not only represent New York’s most sought after source of transportation, but also the hustle and bustle of city life . Take a look at the design:

Va$htie Kola x Air Jordan 2 Retro

Vashtie Kola says that she was known as a “Jordan rocking fool” before becoming a successful clothing designer, music video director, party promoter, tastemaker, etc. Funny how life comes full circle. Check out the beautiful color and design:

This limited-edition sneaker pays homage to her clothing line Violette. That soft lavender adds an ultra feminine touch to the Retro 2’s.

This wonderful collaboration was such a learning lesson for me. The lesson was to watch what you cling to everyday because it could come back to help you or haunt you.
