What Is a Chunky Dunky, and Why Is It $1,600?

So, another theory: the Chunky Dunky’s success is due less to its specific design or quantity than its lineage. Nike’s last eye-poppingly popular release was the Travis Scott Dunk that peaked at $1,522 on StockX. Scott’s shoe was also an SB Dunk designed without restraint—the shoe brazenly mixed plaid and bandana prints. Perhaps unsurprisingly, it shot to the top of every sneakerhead’s wishlist. Forget the design, though—what might matter most is its designation as a Dunk. Because so far, 2020 has been the year of the Dunk: beyond Scott’s and Ben & Jerry’s, to name just a few, Nike’s released the green-and-yellow “Brazils,” a collaboration with Comme des Garçons, and a pair of collegiate editions that borrow colors from Syracuse and Kentucky. “There’s been this massive reemergence around the SB Dunk and particularly the SB Dunk Lows, and obviously Travis was a big part of that,” says Luber.

G-String Bras Are the New Lingerie Trend Taking Hold

Step aside, string bikinis and thongs—bras want in on the dental floss action too.

Plus, it’s in line with some people’s summer philosophy of wearing as little as possible. 

At first, I was having trouble finding enough examples to compile a story, but then I kept coming across these G-string bras left and right, proving that it’s a major trend. Some of the most popular lingerie brands all have versions of the razor-thin trend, including Hanky Panky, Cosabella, Kiki de Montparnasse,

18 Best Gardenia Perfumes You’ll Want to Wear Every Day

While all of those memories are super comforting, I never once thought, “Oh I love that smell. I want to smell exactly like that right now.” No offense to both my beloved and dearly departed grandmothers. I miss them both and have so much to thank them for, but when it came to choosing a signature fragrance for myself, I never wanted to smell like my grandma or, worse, remind someone else (like a date maybe?!) of their nana.

No, I wanted to forge my own fragrance path, without the baggage. So I said no to gardenias. But, recently, there have been so many new fragrances out there with such fine hints of the scent they’re different from what you might remember of your grandma’s perfume bottle collection. These ones have interesting, unique, and unexpected blends and ingredients. They’re like an exciting homage to the “grandma” classics of long ago,
