Update New Pix..We All Screamed for Ice Cream

Plenty of hopsters came through the Bowery Hotel last night for the BBC/ICE Cream store opening jam. The party was packed with the co-brand’s cone-munchers as well as some of The Imperial Skateboard P’s inner circle like Nigo,The Clipse’s Pusha T, Chad Hugo, and a blunt-toting Snoop Dogg. The fish out of water award of the night goes to the always-dapper diamond slinger/recent money-laundering schemer Jacob The Jeweler, who seemed to be rolling solo and having a tough time mingling amongst the tight-jean and bright-colored sneaker clad clientele. Jus Ske spun a slew of tracks that Pharrell either had a hand in the production with or rapped on. The party was to celebrate the opening of the BBC/Ice Cream retail store that is located at 476 Broadway between Prince and Houston streets. Check out more star-studded flicks from the party as well as shots of the new store after the jump.

Reebok Reverse Jam “Love Sucks”


Reebok will continue to release its successful retro model the Reverse Jam next year. This color up of the Reverse Jam was put together to celebrate the “day of love” in a way that could be a signature shoe for The Wedding Singer (see “Love Stinks”). The shoe has a bit of a non traditional Valentines look being predominantly black with red, a “blood splattered” midsole, and a concoction of all the things that suck about love like cheater, hate, lies, crushed, disgusted, blood shed – ah, don’t you just feel the love in the air?
