It’s NBA All-Star Week. Thank the maker.

Dunks will be slammed. 3 pointers will be drained. Defense will not be played. Defense, with the exception of the occasional 90’s boo-yah block, has never been a thing on All-Star weekend. It may hypothetically win championships but it doesn’t get ratings. Out of all the changes and new concepts introduced to the game, the stop-the-drive-defensive-fundamentals-challenge is not one of them. This year, the NBA played to its strength (bankable star power), scrapped the East vs. West format, and went with Team LeBron James vs. Team Steph Curry. Brilliant pandering. Fans voted for the captains, captains Bron Bron and Steph picked their teams like it was recess kickball, and the kids got to have their cake and eat it. No one was shocked. The NBA knows that it’s 100% a super-star driven league. More so than the NFL, NHL, MLB and MLS, hoops culture has always applauded their…

Wanderer You Need To Know: Meet Kumar Arora

Kumar Arora is a serial entrepreneur and investor behind many exciting consumer good business and ventures. Some of his ventures include Ilthy®, Old City Soda, Luxojet, and Rogue Eyewear. And, that’s just only the beginning. He travels in circles that mix aspiring entrepreneurs, corporate execs, to celebs and athletes. In a way, he’s a capsule of what convergence culture has become in 2017. Or perhaps he’s actually shaping it. Kumar is the refreshing kind of dreamer, the kind that makes dreams translate into actions, and actions into fruition. Social media culture has made us feel like posting something is the same as doing something. It’s not. Don’t drink the Kool-Aide, kids. The layman dreamer loves the biblical passage that states “All things work for good”. Certainly, there’s a lot to be said for positive energy, speaking things into existence, and metaphysics ranging from the Far Eastern type to the Law…

Celebrity Look Book & Style Guide : October Edition

We always look to the influencers. They wouldn’t even have that title if they’re juju didn’t somehow rub off. We are subconsciously influenced by them and their style “guides” more often than not, barring those who exclusively shop shop at WalMart. Even then, you may be influenced by Will Farrell in Talladega Nights. We at Wanderset knew that, and we aimed a bit higher. We created “Set Members” so the real influencer could be one on one with you, without their celebrity mannequins. We netted cats like Ariel G., Sneaker Steve, Andrew Weitz, and more. These guys are the reason you even see style trends emerge, or your favorite celebrity mannequins rocking what they do. We believe in the power of the man behind the curtain. For this article, we’re going back on that. We’re gunna be your plug to the middle man, the celebrity. Why? Cuz TMZ snatched the…
