To mark our ten year anniversary, we are doing a series of parties under the umbrella “Summer of The Rub.”  This past Saturday we celebrated with Rich Medina and Neil Armstrong at a free daytime party at Dekalb Market in Brooklyn.  I thought it would be as good a time as any to bring my camera out. The whole set is here.

And Now, a Life Lesson From Joan Smalls: ‘Losers Sometimes End Up Winners’

In her Screen Test for the July issue of W, Smalls tells Lynn Hirschberg, “I did some modeling competitions in Puerto Rico when I was about 13, 14. So first … out of your town, they pick a group of girls, then out of that group, you go to San

Portugal 0-0 Spain a.e.t. Spain win 4-2 on penalties

Game in a sentence

A game clogged up in the midfield dragged past extra time to penalties, where Spain triumphed and Ronaldo didn’t even get to kick for Portugal.


  • Both sides were largely unchanged from previous matches, with a few notable exceptions. Portugal had to put out Almeida in place of the injured Postiga at the centre of their 4-3-3, otherwise they went with the team that beat the Czech Republic.
  • Spain threw another curve ball by putting out Alvaro Negredo in place of Cesc Fabregas. Negredo has an impressive international pedigree and scored 14 goals for Sevilla this season in La Liga…but, no Fernando Llorente? Alright, cool, just asking.
  • Portugal immediately signaled they weren’t going to take tiki-taka lying down, and were impressive moving in on the Spanish final third on more than one occasion. Joao Moutinho in particular enjoyed a lot of love down the right flank, and was Portugal’s most creative force. Coentrao was excellent in his supporting role in leftback.
  • Bruno Alves decided to imitate a monster truck in defence, not always for the good, although he muscled Negredo out of the game (he went off in the 54th minute for Cesc “false nine” Fabregas). Pepe, Moutinho and Raul Meireles were all active in interceptions, and were generally good at slowing the Spanish attack.
  • Still, Spain predictably dominated in every rubric. Possession of course, and attacking third passes in which both Iniesta and David Silva were brilliantly creative. Still, they weren’t at their efficient best. They were limited to 6 shots by the hour mark, which may have been part of the reason Del Bosque switched on Jesus Navas for David Silva.
  • That said, Portugal had little to show for their ambition either; they were also on 6 shots at sixty minutes, three from Ronaldo from outside the 18 yard box. Spain didn’t look particularly vulnerable at the back.
  • As the game moved to its final third, things started to get ugly. Pepe, and Pereira were booked for ugly fouls, Busquets for asking for a card. Bruno Alves later on. Coentrao for something as yet unidentified. Arbeloa for a hand ball on a Ronaldo free kick. Miguel Veloso on what looked like a legit challenge. No major handbags, but a red began to look inevitable.
  • Ronaldo didn’t have a vintage performance. He missed a boat load of free kicks in the second half, and had a gift of a chance in the final minute to put us out our misery when Mereiles broke with Ronaldo to his left in acres of space, only to sky yet another shot over the bar. Meh.
  • And so extra time! It started off with a chance for Spain in the early stages, and the Portuguese defense opened up from there on in. Spain came close to winning it twice, with Iniesta with the goal at his mercy, whose shot was parried by Rui Patricio. Pedro had a break too in the second half, but had the ball knocked out for corner from his feet. Both sides far more often though as legs tired. And so, penalties.
  • While a far more confident affair than the England kicks, there was a lot more drama here. After a bit of what seemed like controversy over the coin toss, Spain opened with a saved shot from Xabi Alonso, only for Moutinho to have his stopped. Bruno Alves then missed his shot, and Fabregas scored to put Spain through to the final to meet either Germany or Italy. But probably Germany. Poor Ronaldo didn’t even get to take a pen.

Dolce & Gabbana to Show Couture for the First Time on July 9

Dolce & Gabbana will hold their first-ever couture show on July 9, but they’re hosting it in Taormina, Sicily — far away from all the other couture collections in Paris (and close to their new coterie of models). According to the FT’s Vanessa Friedman, the designers’ decision to show in such

NIKEiD Nike Air Max 90 Hyperfuse iD   Pigeon by Staple Design | Release Info

The Reed Space introduces the NIKEiD Air Max 90 Hyperfuse in the brand’s infamous “Pigeon” colorway. The kicks were originally created by a fan, who emailed his design to Jeff Staple via the NIKEiD site. Jeff subsequently made a pair for himself and Instagrammed the final result, at which point he was besieged by commenters inquiring when the kicks would drop at the Reed Space (notwithstanding anyone can make a pair on NIKEiD). As Jeff says, “I decided to make it easy for people.” Meaning, the shoes will in fact drop at the Reed Space, packaged in a specially designed HUPBOX with an accompanying enamel Staple Pigeon pin. The store will drop just 12 pairs, in whole sizes ranging from 8 to 12, this Saturday at 12 p.m.
