Audemars Piguet‘s soon-to-open New York lounge is only for VIP: Very Important Pigeut. As such, the AP House, as it’s known, kicked off with a bang thanks to musical ambassador and AP ride-or-die Mark Ronson, who debuted a brand new song created in partnership with AP (kinda).
So the context is that super-producer Ronson — responsible for such megahits as “Uptown Funk” and the entirety of Amy Winehouse’s Back to Black — was approached by Audemars Piguet CEO François-Henry Bennahmias to represent the Haute Horlogerie manufacturer as its musical ambassador, which lead to an AP-produced miniseries called Syncing Sounds, which tracked Ronson as he assembled a brand new song under the purview of AP.
Ronson also brought in 2022 Grammy Award-winning R&B artist Lucky Daye to handle the vocals and the resulting track, “Too Much,” premiered at the AP House to an exclusive gathering of peers.
Offset, Bloody Osiris, Don C, Nigel Sylvester, Zack Bia, and even Marky Ramone all descended on New York’s Meatpacking district on the eve of May 12 to behold the live debut of “Too Much” and soak in the AP House sights.
Opening ahead of summer to Audemars Piguet’s clients and VIPs, the AP House is fully stocked with drinks and amenities, replete with a deck that overlooks the bustling neighborhood.

Inside, rare AP models line the walls and archival timepieces are displayed in glass cases, reflecting the watchmaker’s long legacy. But its enduring influence is also made clear through the lounge’s hip furnishings.
In a press preview, Bennahmias explained that Ronson’s AP partnership is indicative of the era, wherein Audemars Piguet is coveted by venerable collectors and young watch enthusiasts alike.
Ronson and Daye, to Bennahmias, epitomize the AP House’s entire purpose: a meeting of the minds that forges a middle ground between heritage and happenstance, where heritage coexists with the cutting edge.
To sum up the cultural relevance of a juggernaut like Audemars Piguet would be a fool’s errand but AP House, as a concept alone, comes pretty close.
AMBUSH’s Starbucks Collab Has All You Need for Summer: Coffee & Tequila
What will you be drinking this evening? Just coffee and tequila, and make it AMBUSH style.
After placing her own spin on Nike’s models like the upcoming Air Adjust Force and Dunk High, Yoon Ahn now offers her own take on coffee, linking up with Starbucks Japan for a collab that’ll have you buzzed this summer (either from the alcohol content or caffeine).
With the coffee giant’s Japanese imprint, AMBUSH offers cold brew cocktails that are exactly how they sound: Starbucks’ signature coffee topped off with a bit of liquid courage.
While I prefer my spirits without liquor and my coffee alcohol-free, quite a few are here for the whole boozy pick-me-up vibe, often partaking in combos like Irish coffee and spiked eggnog.
For those who enjoy kicking back with a buzzy cup of joe, you’ll probably enjoy the AMBUSH x Starbucks coffee cocktails flavors, which are cold brew margarita and cold brew tequonic.
Tequila and margarita coffee definitely sounds like a chaotic combination. But, indeed, we’d have to trust that Yoon Ahn’s fashion tastes are equally as good as her food and spirits palate.
As for those not riding the alcoholic coffee wave, the partnership has its cold brew free offering, too (that’s all coffee and no alcohol).
If you find yourself in Japan this summer, you can test out the AMBUSH x Starbucks cold brew cocktails yourself at the Arriviamo bar at Tokyo’s Starbucks Reserve in Nakameguro. Drinks start pouring in on May 27 and will be around till the end of August.
Doja Cat’s 2022 Billboard Music Awards ‘Fit: No Notes
Styled by Brett Alan Nelson, the star donned look 21 from Schiaparelli’s Spring 2022 couture collection, designed by Daniel Rosenbery. Nelson styled the bust-less bustier and bias-cut skirt with gold pasties from Agent Provocateur, a gilded touch that matched Doja’s statement earrings: giant gold ears dripping in diamonds.
The cherry on top? Heels featuring articulated gold “toes” and a Saturn-shaped clutch, also by Schiaparelli.
The “You Right” singer didn’t just sweep the red carpet — she also took home four Billboard awards, including Top R&B Artist.

Over the past year, Doja has established herself as formidable fashion force. In early April, she attended the Grammys in an ice-blue Versace gown, accessorized with a glass Heven x Coperni bag that quickly went viral, fueling a full-on craze for the fragile accessory.
While I have to hand best-dressed to Ms. Planet Her, Megan Thee Stallion‘s custom Mugler gave Doja a run for her money. (I have no comment on Cara Delevingne’s bizarre red carpet antics.)
Now, someone get Doja in touch with Demna.
Hey, You Know Your Levi’s 501 Jeans Are Inside-Out? Precisely.
If you see some youngsters walking around with their Levi’s worn outward, it’s not some new hip trend (though it could easily lead to that outcome). Despite crazes like skants and folded-over Dickies, they’re wearing the jeans correctly because that’s the intention behind Levi’s latest 501 jeans.
As the name implies, Levi’s vintage denim trousers look like they’d been turned outward. One pair touts the jean’s usual light grey lining as its outside appearance. Meanwhile, another pair boasts the denim’s signature dark wash on the surface with a light grey waistline and frayed seams — details usually concealed inside the garment.
Like NIGO’s Human Made collab, Levi’s latest “Inside-Out” 501 vintage jeans are crafted from selvedge denim, aka a denim aficionado’s dream trousers celebrated for their utmost quality, distinctive cuff, and preferred fading over time.
Particularly, Levi’s “Inside-Out” 501 jeans were designed using the reverse side of 1963 selvedge denim from Cone Mills White Oak, an OG denim plant based in North Carolina.
Denim like this takes time, folks — making it hard to produce, too — so it’s no wonder Levi’s “Inside-Out” 501 jeans will be limited with a price tag of 46,200 yen (approximately $357).
With the trousers’ selvedge foundation, denim heads won’t think twice about swiping their card for this exclusive investment. They’ll surely be happy to know the Levi’s “Inside Out” 501 jeans are dropping on 501 Day, May 20, at Levi’s online and physical Harajuku and Osaka stores.
