Kanye West Might Be Releasing Homeware Soon

Kanye West may be making a foray into homeware soon.
West’s company Mascotte Holdings Inc. applied to trademark the name “Kanye West” for numerous home decor products on Aug. 27, according to an application filed at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
The application covers a range of home items, including blankets, curtains, pillow cases, bath towels, nylon flags and even products for children and pets.
While this would be the rapper’s first venture in the home category, he’s experienced a successful career in the fashion industry with his Yeezy brand, which has collaborated with Adidas on numerous collections over the years. Most recently, West teamed with Gap to bring his Yeezy brand to the retailer. The first piece in the Yeezy x Gap collection, a blue puffy nylon jacket, was revealed in June.
According to Architectural Digest, West has always had a passion for architecture and interior design. He would apparently go to Barnes & Noble and purchase Architectural Digest magazines when he was younger.
West and his now soon-to-be ex-wife Kim Kardashian West spent almost seven years renovating their home, which is believed to be worth up to $60 million. The interior design of the house, which features large, open spaces to embrace

Everything to Know About Naomi Osaka’s New Skin Care Line Kinlò

Naomi Osaka has made her first foray into beauty. 
In April, the tennis player announced she was launching Kinlò, a skin care line designed specifically for those with darker skin tones. The products launched Tuesday and are available online on the official website. The line includes sunscreen, after-sun recovery mist, eye cream and lip balm. 
“I’m so excited to share Kinlò with you! I founded Kinlò to address a public health need around skin cancer prevention within our POC communities,” Osaka said in a statement on the brand’s Instagram account. “Tennis can be challenging at times, but it has given me this platform which I am so grateful for. It allows me to help others in ways I wouldn’t have imagined otherwise.” 
The name “Kinlò” is inspired by Osaka’s multicultural background, as the word derives from the Japanese and Haitian words for “gold,” according to the brand’s website.
