Drake Parties With Rihanna & Justin Bieber After Dropping His Surprise Album
Events

On Thursday, NYCult kicked off NYFW with its semi-annual New York, New York party at Up&Down with ILoveMankonenn. If New York, New York is anything like what the rest of Fashion Week will be like, all we can say is we're in for a wild ride these next few nights. Mankonenn performed his hit song "Tuesday" and the even though the club was going up, it was on a Thursday this time. As expected, the night brought together a mix of some of the hottest players in the industry, including Drake who entered after just releasing a new surprise album, If You're Reading This It's Too Late, and Rihanna. Both were spotted earlier celebrating Kanye West's collaboration with Adidas at Jay Z's 40/40 club, yet made their way down to Up&Down to end the night with DJ May Kwok. Though just to squash any Drake/Rihanna dating rumors you may be conjuring up, the two arrived separately, but we hear that Rihanna and Leonardo DiCaprio were spotted together at Up&Down last night as well. Justin Bieber was also spotted downstairs, hanging out with Drake and reportedly left with Hailey Baldwin, though the Biebs denies all rumors that the two are dating. Other notables at Up&Down included Joe Jonas, Shaun White, and Richard Chai, who were all spotted together hanging out while Mankonnen performed.

Things We Love

We've sourced the lands for the best scents man can buy, be it for Valentine's Day or any other day. Our criteria was critical - the scents must envelope a room, burn clean, and the scent must not be overpowering. All three requirements were met, with some being shattered completely (Fornasetti) with design and quality. Don't be afraid of the price tags, as these candles don't have to be every day scents. If you can't afford to buy a bundle every month, use them sparingly. Think of these candles as a luxury, not a necessity.

#YeezySeason: Your Complete Guide To Kanye West's NYFW Takeover

#YeezySeason: Your Complete Guide To Kanye West's NYFW Takeover
Fashion Week

Kanye West is always proving to the world that there are no limits to his vision. After the incident of Kanye pulling a Kanye at this year's Grammys, he is (once again) all anybody can talk about. Notorious for passionately speaking his mind, Kanye has discussed his concerns with democratic fashion and claims that he is "The Tupac of Product." Now venturing outside of music and attributing his genius to all industries, Kanye is making his authentic, cultural footprint. In an interview back in 2013, he confirmed that he cut ties with Nike for a deal with Adidas. Granted the right to full creative freedom, Yeezy has had everyone patiently waiting for his next big move. Less than two years later, the day finally arrived. Kanye "turned up" for this year's 2015 New York Spring Fashion Week by debuting his Adidas line, releasing his limited edition Adidas Yeezy 750 Boost shoe, presenting a new song from his upcoming album called "Wolves", and holding the first ever annual Roc City Classic free concert in the Flatiron district in celebration of All-Star weekend. It's a lot to take in, so let us give you the rundown.
