Hollywood’s so-called eternal bachelor, Leonardo DiCaprio, was recently spotted on a holiday in the beautiful St. Barts with his mysterious girlfriend Camila Morrone. The Don’t Look Up star has been dating the 24-year-old since 2017, although the two have always kept their relationship notoriously private aside from the time they sat together at the 2020 Oscars.

So, what do we know about DiCaprio’s partner of four years?

She’s been dubbed the next Jennifer Lawrence


Born in 1997, Morrone is a model and actress who is more than 20 years younger than her Hollywood star boyfriend, who is 47. After making her acting debut in James Franco’s Bukowski, Morrone was then seen in several indie flicks like Never Goin’ Back (2018), Mickey and the Bear (2019) and Valley Girl (2020). She got rave reviews for Mickey, where some even compared her to Jennifer Lawrence, who also made her debut in an indie film.

She has also walked the runway for Moschino’s 2017 resort collection, been featured in a Coach campaign with Kate Moss, appeared in Vogue Turkey and Vogue Latin America, and starred in ads for Topshop.

However, she has decided to focus on acting instead. “Being on-camera and having a scene to do was the best feeling ever. I remember crying on the way home being like, ‘I never want this to end! For the rest of my life!’” she told Vulture.

Her mum dated Al Pacino


Morrone is the daughter of famous Argentinian model Maximo Morrone and actress Lucila Sola, who got divorced after they moved to Los Angeles. In an interview with Vulture, she said she grew up going to auditions all the time and got a few commercials as well while attending Beverly Hills High School.

Morrone’s mum once dated Hollywood legend Al Pacino from 2007 to 2015, and Morrone has even referred to Pacino as her stepfather. The three of them made their red carpet debut in 2014 at the 71st Venice International Film Festival, and Morrone said that she asked Pacino for acting lessons during her appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden in 2018.

She has her own fashion line and used to blog


In 2019, she expanded her talent and teamed up with luxury brand Naked Cashmere for a capsule collection. As quoted in WWD, the new line “focuses on essential travelling pieces – including long duster cardigans, jogger sets and bralettes” with prices ranging from US$85 to US$595. The fashionista also used to run a lifestyle blog called cami-morrone.com, according to Insider, where she dished on her fashion tips, workout routine and favourite post-workout snacks.

She predicted Leonardo DiCaprio’s Oscar win


Did you know Morrone also predicted DiCaprio’s historic Oscar win for The Revenant on her blog? In 2015, Morrone wrote a short film review stating that she is a big fan of DiCaprio and Tom Hardy, but was unimpressed with the film. She then predicted his Oscar win, saying, “Leo and Tom Hardy’s acting was beyond amazing. This may be the year Leonardo DiCaprio finally wins an Oscar!”

According to Cosmopolitan, the lovebirds met in 2017 at the Cannes Film Festival and were spotted spending New Year’s in Aspen together. In 2018, the couple attended several events together, from Ellen DeGeneres’ birthday party in West Hollywood to their big European holiday.

However, when the two sat next to each other at the 2020 Oscars, it unofficially confirmed their relationship despite the fact they walked the red carpet separately. In an interview with LA Times, Morrone also commented on their age gap: “There’s so many relationships in Hollywood – and in the history of the world – where people have large age gaps. I just think anyone should be able to date who they want to date.”

She wants to pave her own way


Morrone will be seen next in the highly-anticipated Amazon miniseries Daisy Jones & The Six opposite Riley Keough. The Reese Witherspoon-produced show is based on Taylor Jenkins Reid’s hit novel about the rise and fall of a dysfunctional 1970s rock band and Morrone will be playing Camila Dunne with Sam Claflin as her on-screen husband.

Speaking to LA Times, the young starlet said that she is not expecting “an overnight success” from the project, but she hopes it would put in a better position when fighting for a movie role – and, no, she doesn’t want to be known only as DiCaprio’s girlfriend. “I feel like there should always be an identity besides who you’re dating. … I understand the association, but I’m confident that it will continue to slip away and be less of a conversation.”

The Caves Called – Vibram x Roa Hiking Answered

Published

on

the-caves-called-–-vibram-x-roa-hiking-answered

Brand: Vibram x Roa Hiking

Model: Andreas and Katharina

Release Date: Available now

Price: $449-518

Buy: Online at Roa Hiking

Editor’s Notes: If your brand of wearing Arc’teryx is TikTok shenanigans involving fully-clothed showers or pouring bottles of champagne over yourself in clubs, finishing the look with a pair of terrain-ready kicks may not be priority number one – but who knows?

Trips up the peaks, around the lakes, or anything in-between, call for a sturdy set of footwear, a pair that’ll offer all-around weather protection, support, and responsiveness.

Such elements can be sought and found from Arc and Salomon, even HOKA depending on the terrain of choice, but a perfecting pairing that’ll leave you doubt-free is Roa Hiking (clues in the name) and Vibram.

Vibram are, of course, leaders in the world of high-performance rubber soles and the bread to Roa’s butter. The two have come together to offer a cohort of footwear that are equipped to tackle mountains and be styled to city life – a gorp win-win.

With the CAVE capsule collection, the timeless Andreas is dressed up in brown suede or Cordura nylon, while the newly designed Katharina takes on the same fabrications in brown and green, respectively.

Both come fitted with the best-in-class Vibram Megagrip sole, which will keep you firmly planted on wet peaks, and that battered concrete you’re still waiting for the local council to fix. Figures.

Awake NY x Lacoste Is Angelo Baque’s Dream Come True

Published

on

awake-ny-x-lacoste-is-angelo-baque’s-dream-come-true

Awake NY founder Angelo Baque sees collaborations as a communal effort, a unfication of likeminded creative peers. Collaborations aren’t merely two brands coming together to drop a product, that’s for sure.

And, considering the cultural clout that a guy like Baque commands, he could likely have his pick of the collaborative litter, so to speak.

But he prefers to patiently pick out opportunities that align with his personal taste, lifestyle, and ideology; intent is everything.

That’s why it made sense to come together with Louise Trotter, creative director of Lacoste.

“Growing up in New York, Lacoste was an aspirational brand,” Baque explained to Highsnobiety. “I’ve been a fan since I was a kid – I remember seeing the polo and tracksuits in music videos, watching hip-hop artists and my own friends adopt them and incorporate it into their own style. I grew up with Lacoste.

“I have tremendous respect for Louise and the work she’s done with Lacoste. She’s immensely talented.”

The resulting collection is a hybridization of Baque’s retro-leaning aesthetic and Trotter’s worldly design sense, incorporating both iconic Lacoste items (the polo, the post-workout sweater) and fresh pieces (an updated harrington-style jacket) into a fresh spin on preppy heritage.

“As a brand, we represent youth culture, not just here in New York, but globally,” Baque continued. “With this partnership, I wanted to bring that youthful energy into each of the pieces. The pieces are all wearable and can be mixed and matched across the collection.”

“Unfortunately due to COVID restrictions, we didn’t get to work together as closely as we both would have liked, but Louise helped make the process seamless nonetheless.”

This collection, deceivingly simple in nature, is the result of literal years of effort. It took untold time not only to design the garments but to scour the archives, to find the right fabric weight, to produce the items in Lacoste’s native France.

“We began conversations with Lacoste prior to the pandemic, so the original plan was for myself and our head designer to fly to Paris, meet with the Lacoste team there and go through the archives,” said Baque.

“Like the rest of the world, we had to pivot in early 2020, so much of the creative work took place via Zoom and from the comfort of our respective homes,” Baque recalled. “Although the process wasn’t ideal, we’re still very proud of what we were able to create in partnership with Lacoste.”

Though there’s plenty to like throughout the range — especially the slouchy, colorful sweatpants — one piece stands out above others for Baque.

“For me, it’s the polo. It’s a status symbol, and a symbol of achievement. To now be able to work with the Lacoste team and put our touch on it, that’s something that I never would have thought I’d do,”

“It was always a dream to work on something that’s iconic and steeped in history,” finished Baque. “The opportunity to work on a polo and put our brand name on it, that’s a bucket list item.”

Innersect 2021 Was a Journey Beyond the Hype Machine

Published

on

innersect-2021-was-a-journey-beyond-the-hype-machine

As the curtains closed on the latest edition of Innersect, it became abundantly clear that the cultural landscape is changing. As we’ve come to expect from East Asia’s largest street culture event, the three-day fair united visionaries from the worlds of fashion, art, music, and tech to celebrate the bigger picture and paint a vision of the future. This year was no exception.

Despite Shanghai’s Covid restrictions dictating a reduced crowd (the annual event usually pulls upwards of 60,000 visitors), eyes around the globe remained peeled, no small part in thanks to Fear of God’s Jerry Lorenzo, who was tapped this year as the fair’s first co-curator. As one of the culture’s most in-demand names, he brought in a number of industry pioneers from his close circle of family and friends to create “Neighborhood” — a fair-exclusive exhibition comprising creative work that responds to an over-arching theme of “Balance.” Take a peek inside via the video below.

One clear result of this thematic exploration was that the presentation of product (particularly within a retail-focused fair) is no longer just about commerce. Balance was found within a wider perspective, a holistic take on culture today, where it’s heading next, and how that influences consumer habits. Take Angelo Baque’s Awake NY presentation, for example. Rather than setting up a typical product space, the New York creative used the opportunity to launch something entirely different — The Awake Record Shop, connecting consumers with beats that provide the brand’s pulse.

As Baque told Highsnobiety: “[I wanted] to curate our sounds, what inspires Awake? What is the music that we’re into? I want [Innersect visitors] to discover these records that help to inspire what it is that I do. I want to create experience. There’s going to be some faux record shop merchandise, cool stuff that I would like to get from my favorite record shop, growing up. I want it to be a moment in time, like you go to Innersect, and you [get] that one T-shirt from the record shop that doesn’t exist.”

Elsewhere, Sabukaru Online — the Tokyo-based publication dedicated to burrowing down niche rabbit holes within subcultures — teamed up with Innersect to present a curated exhibition dedicated to platforming the “next generation of players in the functional fashion realm.” The space was called “Section 31026” and featured 10 of the most exciting brands operating within the space today and will be integral to the next chapter in menswear.

And of course, we’d be remiss not to mention the unveiling of Fear of God’s Athletics collaboration with adidas, which is set to drop later this year. The first-look moment was a headline-hitter, with many publications noting the history lesson behind the design. “The adidas logo used in the new collaborative badge was featured by the performance house from 1950 to 1971,” Lorenzo explained, “arguably its most dominant and defining era.”

Now, as streetwear itself enters its own dominant and defining era, redressing both mainstream and luxury fashion as we know it, retail experiences such as these speak to a changing of tides. The aforementioned labels are spearheading an adaptation that is set to happen en mass in both the East and the West — an adaptation that will require all brands to cut through the noise and offer experiences that are truly unique and have authentic meaning in order to keep afloat.

“Feeding the hype machine is no longer enough,” Adela Tan, Asia Pacific vice president, and managing director at William-Dickie, told Business of Fashion. “Consumers are looking for purpose in their consumption.”

For Innersect brand director David Tang, the notion of purpose is intrinsically tied with value. In conversation with Highsnobiety earlier today, he echoed Tan’s sentiment when explaining that this year his team “found that the ‘Hype Engine’ is cooling down. [Rather, today] people are looking for something that’s sustainable, something that offers better quality and textures so they [can] wear it for the next couple of years.”

That value pivot will continue to elevate the Innersect experience, Tang tells us. In the coming years, we can expect to see more premium curated experiences that are synonymous with the “contemporary youth-culture movement [and go one] step further to riding the waves of the creative economy.” Watch this space.
