Supreme, Champion & adidas in the MoMA: Streetwear That Changed the World

Items: Is Fashion Modern? is a fashion and design exhibit on display at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and in it there are several pieces of streetwear and sneakers that have redefined style culture, including ones from Nike, Supreme, adidas, Converse, Champion, and other iconic brands.

Complex News got a first-hand look at the exhibit, as well as spoke with Senior MoMA curator Paola Antonelli, who organized the exhibit.

“When I got here, I noticed that there was no fashion in an otherwise amazing design collection,” Antonelli said. “I started keeping a list that I used to call 'garments that changed the world,' and of course it had the white T-shirt, Converse, Nike, Levi's 501, all the garments that you think are the pillars of modern design when it comes to fashion. And that's how the exhibit happened.”

Check out the full video above where Antonelli talks about Kanye West's influence in the design and fashion world, as well as the heated arguments that took place on what made the final cut for the sneaker side of the exhibit.

Wiz Khalifa Talks New Mixtape ‘Laugh Now, Fly Later’ and What It Means to Be an OG

Wiz Khalifa recently visited Complex, where he offered his thoughts on drug culture and the passing of Lil Peep. During that same sit-down with Complex News' Jinx, the Pittsburgh vet shared some details on his latest project, Laugh Now, Fly Later.

“I'm a fan of music; I listen to everything. So when you digest so much music, you have to find where you stand in the middle of all of that,” he explained. “That's what [Laugh Now, Fly Later] was, just finding where I stand in the middle of everything that's going on right now.”

Khalifa has been in the rap game for over a decade, so it's safe to say he's an OG. How does he feel about that? “I just embrace my position,” he said. “I know fully what my responsibility is, and I play my part.”

“Anybody who knows me behind-the-scenes, I just give away game,” he added. “I just want people to get the easy button on how to do it.”

Wiz Khalifa: ‘It’s Unfortunate That Lil Peep Had to Die’

Wiz Khalifa, who recently released his mixtape Laugh Now, Fly Later, stopped by the Complex office Thursday and talked about drug culture, particularly the use of lean, and also touched on Lil Peep's passing earlier today.

Earlier this month, the Pittsburgh rapper denounced lean, and doubled down in his conversation with Complex News' Jinx. “I just feel like somebody has to speak up for people who don't believe in that, or are really tired of seeing it,” he said. “It's unfortunate that Lil Peep had to die and stuff like that, but these are the things people are gonna start seeing and keep happening if they don't really relax and fall back.”

Wiz added: “I got a couple friends who do sip lean and shit, and I tell them all the time like, 'Yo, that shit is wack bro.'” Check out the full interview above.

Kobe Bryant and Kendrick Lamar Talk About Their Evolution to Greatness at ComplexCon

Kobe Bryant and Kendrick Lamar have both reached the mountaintop in their respective fields, so you'd be wise to listen up when they share how they arrived there.

Complex News' Jinx sat down with Kobe and Kendrick at ComplexCon to get their take on what people miss when it comes to truly achieving greatness.

“I think there's a certain stubbornness that comes along with being great,” Kobe said. “I think people see greatness as kind of an easy road, like a one-path thing. You work hard, and then all of a sudden it happens. It don't work like that. There's a lot of darkness that comes from that as well. There's a lot of personal experiences that you go through that you use as fuel to propel you forward. Whereas otherwise it would just be obstacles for others; it might even prevent them from going forward. Whereas for us, those moments do nothing but fuel us even more.”

Kendrick offered similar sentiment on the topic. “It's the curiosity of it. The fear, the anxiety. It's the curiosity of knowing, damn, I can possibly overcome this. And when you do and another one approaches, I wanna challenge that too. That's real greatness.”

Check out the full interview above, where Kobe and Kendrick share when they knew they were on to something special in their careers, why Kobe believes he's failed if 20 years from now basketball is the best thing he's done in his life, and how Kendrick got inspired watching Kobe's final game.
