Queen B is blessing us with another merchandise capsule. This time, she is upgrading all your spring outfits with the chicest athleisure tops, hoodies, and shirts you’ve ever seen. Beyoncé keeps releasing super-cool merchandise collections for every season and holiday, and we simply can’t get enough.
For the spring drop, Bey found inspiration in an iconic historical figure. The singer paid homage to the Egyptian queen Nefertiti, who is a synonym for beauty. This gorgeous queen was married to the Pharaoh Akhenaten. She is often described in the books as one of the most beautiful women of that time. She lived in 1300 B.C. and is one of the strongest female figures in the Egyptian history. The queen stood next to her king, was a part of numerous riots and even ruled as a Pharaoh. She gave birth to Tutankhamun, who reigned for over 10 years with the Egyptian kingdom.
Bey’s Spring 2018 merchandise is all about fierce colors and even fiercer graphics. Each piece features a picture of the singer, transformed into the iconic Egyptian queen. She wears a statement encrusted crown, similar to the one Nefertiti wore. Even the names of the garments are a homage to Nefertiti. The three dominating colors in the capsule are vibrant orange, black and white. The orange crop top and long-sleeved blouse are accessorized with a black and white collage of Yonce’s shots. You’ll also find a trendy black hoodie to keep you warm during the cold spring nights. Last but not least, there is a white crop top with a full-colored shot and a T-shirt.
Just recently, the singer made a statement fashion appearance during the Wearable Art Gala. Bey channeled her inner Egyptian goddess with a stunning golden gown, jewelry, and makeup. If there’s a person that can pull off that full-on queen glam, it’s definitely Beyoncé. The singer is soon starting the On the Run II Tour with Jay Z, so these items would be ideal to flaunt at one of their concerts.
Just like all the previous collections, Beyonce’s merchandise is very affordable. The prices start at $35 for the chic T-shirts, $40 for the cropped ones and $60 for the hoodies. The BeyHive nation is already going crazy over these statement new launches. You can start shopping the Nefertiti Spring 2018 collection at beyonce.com. The Holiday and Valentine’s Day releases were sold out instantly, so hurry up and get your hands on the merch before it’s all gone.

The Italian streetwear label GCDS (‘God Can’t Destroy Streetwear) tapped the internet sensation Teyana Taylor for a capsule collection. Taylor is a street icon with an authentic style and multiple talents. The first connection with the brand happened last year. The recording artist who is best known for her dance skills in Kanye West’s “Fade” video became the most talked-about figure during NYFW in September 2017. She closed the GCDS fashion show in an all-white logo ensemble with the fiercest walk ever. The 26-year old wore a crop top and briefs accessorized with oversized white sunglasses, hoops and multiple chains.
The Italian label and Teyana are now back with a Harlem-themed capsule. Taylor is a Harlem native and the cult New York neighborhood shaped her fierce style throughout the years. The singer’s personal style includes a lot of oversized street-ready staples. Her collab with GCDS follows the same aesthetic. The capsule dubbed Harlem Made ” it’s streetwear, where the hood and high fashion meet”, Teyana explains. The collection will offer t-shirts, bodysuits, hoodies and more. All the pieces will carry that cool, effortless street vibe. If you were one of those who watched Teyana’s fierce runway walk on repeat, now you can have it in your wardrobe. There is a graphic hoodie from the collection with a photo of the singer’s iconic runway moment topped with lime green text.
It’s Harlem made, I am Harlem. So it represents me as well as the culture,’ the singer described her collaboration with GCDS.
Giuliano Calza, the founder, and designer of the Italian label added that he was first inspired by a late eighties T-shirt with a picture of Cher holding a rainbow flag. This t-shirt was a part of the singer’s tour merchandise. The designer wanted to celebrate the uniqueness of Teyana Taylor, as a modern style icon in a similar way. So, he refused to chase trends and came up with a collection that honors Taylor’s distinctive style.
On April 6, GCDS will celebrate the launch of its capsule with Teyana Taylor with a party in New York. The party will take place at the brand’s new pop-up store at VFiles. The capsule collection will be available to shop at VFiles at 12 Mercer Street starting from April 21. You can also find the pieces online on GCDS’ website. The prices range between $25 to $200.
Teyana Taylor also has her own apparel, as a part of her FADE2FIT fitness program. But her collaboration with GCDS will get fans a piece of her style that they can take outside of the gym.

Adidas is launching a brand new sneaker silhouette just in time for spring. The popular sportswear label always surprises with chic releases that trendy ladies love. This time they are turning the focus to women, with another empowering campaign. The Arkyn sneaker is a super-fashionable design, that comes in four colors: Core Black, Ash Pearl, Cloud White, and Steel.

Like the best creatives, the shoe is inspired by the archive and the future. She might be one of the most famous models in the world, but she won’t let herself be defined by it. Moving seamlessly between design, writing, acting, and photographing her friends and family, she’s a shining example of an empowered female creator who cannot be boxed in.’- the sportswear brand shared.
The Arkyn campaign was shot in Kendall’s apartment in Soho. Renell Medrano is the young photographer who stood behind the camera.
