Investors Plan $2.2 Billion Bid to Buy Reebok from adidas


Is Reebok on the move? According to reports from The Wall Street Journal and an article by The Boston Globe, Hong Kong private-equity investor Jynwel Capitol is looking to make a $ 2.2 Billion bid on the company with help from funds affiliated with the government of Abu Dhabi.

Reebok is currently owned by the adidas Group, who acquired the brand in 2006 for $ 3.8 Billion. While Reebok could be moving from adidas, the Boston Globe report suggests that Reebok would not be moving from their strategy. According to the article, the move would provide Reebok with more financing towards marketing and the opening of new stores, with all of Reebok’s executives expected to be kept on board. Keep it locked to Nice Kicks for more updates on this developing story.

The Selby Release Four Films With Subjects From “Fashionable Selby” Book

Continuing with his series of insightful videos into unique fashion designs and obscure trends, Todd Selby has released a series of films with subjects taken from his third book Fashionable Selby. While the hardback tome profiles 42 individuals, this video series focuses on four characters who push the envelope in fashion with their bold dispositions and DIY approach to design.

First up is Yoshikazu Yamagata, a Japanese artist who retraces steps in art by “learning to draw as a child,” a style that correlates with his cut and sew work for his Writtenafterwards label. Next up, Antwep Royal Academy of Fine Arts graduate Yuima Nakazato takes us to a tree house built by his father and speaks on how his upbringing around nature influences his modern designs. Meeting another nature enthusiast, The Selby speaks with natural dye wizard Audrey Louis Reyolds who explores colors from plants and algae in creating interesting gradients via her own organic dye techniques. Lastly, we meet Yujiro Komatsu of Blackmeans Leather, a store located in Tokyo that stocks vintage leather jackets and punk accessories. Komoatsu and his cohort of modern cowboys live off punk’s DIY spirit, adding bold statement accents to second-hand wardrobe staples.

Enjoy the well-documented clips below and purchase Fashionable Selby from Amazon for $ 26 USD.

Rap Genius Removed From Google Search

rapgenius

After being targeted by the National Music Publishers Association for “illegally” posting the lyrics to popular songs, Rap Genius has now been penalized by Google. According to the NY Times, the lyrics site has been removed from the search engine for inflating their traffic rankings.

Rap Genius was removed from Google search on Christmas Day, after representatives for the Brooklyn-based company came clean about practices that violate Google’s policy. In an apology letter, the founders wrote:

“The other strategy we employ on a much smaller scale (the subject of recent Hacker News controversy) is to find blogs whose content we think our followers will enjoy and ask them to link pages on Rap Genius that are relevant to their posts. We actually thought we had set this up to be compliant with Google’s linking policy in its Terms of Service, but we messed up and want to explain how.

Rap Genius’ traffic numbers have reportedly suffered from the swift Google search removal, dropping from over a million to under 3,00,000 in just a few days.
