We Sent our Photo Editor to the 2018 NBA Draft, Here’s What She Captured

As senior photo editor of ONE37pm, I attended the 2018 NBA Draft. It was a big night for everyone–including Marvin Bagley, Kevin Knox, Deandre Ayton, Mikal Bridges, Wendell Carter Jr, Jaren Jackson and Chandler Hutchison (pictured below). 

After their moment of glory on stage, players milled about backstage, celebrating with family members and talking to the media.

Number-one pick DeAndre Ayton was humbled by the evening’s events. “Having my name called to be the first pick for the Phoenix Suns was mind-blowing. Having all that confidence and leading up to that point when I saw Adam Silver came out, I was just waiting for my name, and when he called it, my mind went blank.”

#Face2FaceTime with Daniel Patrick

#Face2FaceTime is a series in which ONE37pm calls the do-ers, the hustlers and the icons from the worlds of business, culture, music, sports and style. Who should we dial next?

For our latest edition of #Face2FaceTime we talked to LA streetwear designer Daniel Patrick about how he grew his business from the ground up—and what it takes to stay at the top once every guy in the NBA is wearing your stuff.

Patrick grew up in Australia and, in 2006, gave up an opportunity to play professional rugby in France in order to follow his passion of designing clothes. He moved to America, enrolled in fashion school, and worked jobs in retail and warehousing while ​he built up his knowledge and skills of the industry. In 2011​,​ he ​started his ​own ​brand, producing the majority of his clothing in LA and his sneakers in Italy. The designer cites Instagram as one of the main vehicles for his success.

#Face2FaceTime with Joshua Peskowitz

#Face2FaceTime is a series in which ONE37pm rings up the do-ers, the hustlers and the icons from the worlds of business, culture, music, sports, style and other industries. Who should we call next?

In this edition of #Face2FaceTime, we chat with Joshua Peskowitz about opening his first brick-and-mortar store, Magasin, after 10+ years working in editorial and retail for other brands. 

“I got to a point in my life where I was like, ‘If I don’t try this now, I’m never going to do it.’ And I didn’t think I could live with that feeling, so I at least had to try. I think that that’s a moment that a lot of entrepreneurs have. You know, it’s just time.”

#Face2FaceTime with Ilaria Urbinati

#Face2FaceTime is a series in which ONE37pm calls the do-ers, the hustlers and the icons from the worlds of business, culture, music, sports and style. Who should we dial next?

We got a little #Face2FaceTime with celebrity stylist Ilaria Urbinati to talk about collaborating with Donald Glover on a series of ’70s-inspired looks for the Solo: A Star Wars Story press tour. Think: pointy boots, visible chest hair, the whole nine yards.

Urbinati also styles Ryan Reynolds, The Rock, Tom Hiddleston, Bradley Cooper, Ben Affleck and a slew of other well-known actors. She’s known for her use of color, attention to fit, and letting her clients be themselves.

“The first thing I say in a fitting with a new client is, like, ‘I don’t get offended. I didn’t design the clothes. If you don’t like it, just tell me, and we’ll move on.’ but I do have a rule that my clients have to try things on. I don’t make them wear anything they don’t want to wear, but they at least have to try it on.

Erik Allen, Co-Founder of Buck Mason, On How Getting Fired Changed His Career for the Better

Before Erik Allen co-founded basics brand Buck Mason with his Venice Beach neighbor Sasha Koehn, he got fired from his job as Director of Sales for a well-funded fashion group. Instead of letting the experience crush his confidence, or playing the blame game, he used the loss as a opportunity for personal growth and self reflection. 

“I realized that didn’t know how to communicate my message, I was impatient, and cocky. I had all of these personality things. Getting fired caused me to look back and go, ‘Okay, well, what do I need to work on and how can I become a better leader and communicator?’ How can I get people to believe my vision because, obviously, I couldn’t get these guys and this team to follow me. Obviously there are some things I need to change.

“I was reading Steve Jobs right around this time and there’s that one point in the book where he gets fired and it’s just so crazy, what he accomplished after getting fired. I think reading and trying to learn from people who have gone through those experiences—times when maybe the vision or ideas were right, but the method was off—helped me a lot. The more you study history, the more you realize that you aren’t the only one.”

5 Young Brands Making Swim Trunks Out of Water Bottles

In 2018, if your swim trunks aren’t eco-friendly, you’re doing summer wrong. Polyester is one of the easiest materials to replicate using recycled materials (it’s essentially plastic) and plenty of young, modern brands offer eco trunks that look just as sharp as “virgin” polyester options, which are made from scratch using petroleum.


Fair Harbor, Hommes Oil Company, Outerknown, Greenlines and Faherty Brand are just a few of the young brands making eco-friendly trunks these days. OG outdoor supplier Patagonia also produces sustainable swimwear. Many of these brands donate a percentage of proceeds to environmental causes or are involved with conservation efforts through events and other channels.


The sweet bonus? All of these brands offer trunks for under $150, and most are under $75.

#RespectReplay: Paolo Di Canio Stops a Game Against Everton

Italian soccer player Paolo Di Canio never had a reputation as a great sport. In fact, he once famously pushed a referee to the ground after getting a red card. But during a 2000 game against Everton, he showed his sportsmanship by picking up the ball and stopping play after Everton goalie Paul Gerrard dislocated his knee. The game was tied and it would have been West Ham’s chance to win the game, but instead Paolo wanted to give the team a fair shake.

The Mavs’ Luka Doncic Talks Really Serious Career Goals (Including a Date with Jennifer Aniston)

New Mavs rookie Luka Doncic is setting his bar high. In a recent interview with Bleacher Report‘s Howard Beck, he listed out some pretty extravagant NBA goals. Here are the top three.

1. He wants to dunk on Knicks unicorn and friend Kristaps Porzingis, but acknowledges the feat. He admits, “It would be so hard to posterize him–too big!”

2. Doncic, who sports a bengal tiger tattoo on his forearm, says he intends to purchase a living, breathing version of his feline ink. “I said if I go to the U.S., I will buy a tiger—like Mike Tyson.”

3. And, providing us with a first look into his willingness to shoot from distance, the 19-year-old star says he’d love to go on a date with Jennifer Aniston. “I hear she’s single now… I mean, she’s nice. I just like her.”

Carmelo Anthony Invests in Nobodys Pizza

Even if you think Carmelo Anthony is past his prime, he’s still out here making moves.

Anthony recently invested $5 million in Nobodys Pizza, a chain from the Bronx.

Melo’s not the only NBA player to turn to pizza. Last year, LeBron James invested in Blaze Pizza, an investment now worth $35 million.

On top of that, Melo’s doubling down on sports—his plan is to open up restaurants next to stadiums and arenas across the country.

#Face2FaceTime with Victor Oladipo

#Face2FaceTime is a series in which ONE37pm calls the do-ers, the hustlers and the icons from the worlds of business, culture, music, sports and style. Who should we dial next?

NBA All-Star Victor Oladipo—and winner of Most Improved Player at the 2018 NBA Awards—felt he had one of the worst performances of his career in the Rockets playoff series when he was playing for OKC.

It forced him to look within and transform his regimen to fulfill his potential, which ultimately led him to having one of the best NBA seasons last year on the Indiana Pacers. “If you won’t invest in yourself then obviously no one else is invested in you,” he told our CEO Ryan Harwood.

Oladipo also told Harwood about the one quality he thinks all successful people must have: resilience and the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties. “Anybody who’s great in anything is resilient,” Oladipo says.
