How the Lo Lifes Feel About Ralph Lauren Collaborating With Palace

The Lo Lifes feel robbed.
The Brooklyn crew that used to steal, wear and sell Ralph Lauren in the Eighties is frustrated that the iconic American brand is working on a collection with Palace instead of them.
According to Willie Esco, who founded the Lo Life brand in 2016, which sells apparel online inspired by Ralph Lauren’s most iconic pieces, someone from Palace’s team reached out to get a blessing from members of the group. But most of the Lo Lifes, who skew older, weren’t familiar with Palace when it announced earlier this month via billboards in Tokyo and Instagram posts that it would be collaborating with the brand they’ve collected, the designer they’ve worshiped and the clothes they’ve helped popularize in urban communities for more than 30 years.
“Look at what Gucci did with Dapper Dan. Ralph should have did [sic] something like that with the Lo Lifes,” said Esco, referring to Gucci-backed efforts to reopen Daniel Day’s Harlem store and atelier, which shut down in 1992. “I wasn’t shocked by the decision. It will generate great sales, but it feels like a money grab from both sides and dilutes what they are all about.”

Eckhart Tolle on Embracing Life’s Challenges

Eckhart Tolle discusses embracing the limitations life presents to us, instead of resisting the present moment. Challenges and difficulties are a natural part of life, but when we meet challenges with negativity we create more suffering for ourselves.

Crisis situations — personal or collective — offer us the possibility of opening to a new way of being in the world.
We can no longer believe the media’s message of fear– fear is an unconscious response that creates more negativity.

Change is absolutely necessary for the world to survive and evolve.
