Stranger Things Actor, Caleb McLaughlin, wore up-and-coming LA-based streetwear brand Defyant in a recent feature by Bello Magazine Brasil.



Caleb sported Defyant’s iconic Season 001 Kung-Fu Rainmaker and a Season 002 “Vie De Merde Et Puis Tu Meurs” Button up shirt for the second issue of Bello Magazine Brasil. These bold pieces were layered and paired with designer items and footwear to create a perfectly curated look for the rising young star.


Defyant’s Season 001 & Season 002 are available now at www.dfynt.com.
It official 13 Reasons Why Season 3 is coming back for a third season. The announcement was just made with a short teaser on Netflix's Youtube channel.


From the cliffhanger that was the end of season 2, this shouldn't be much of a shock to most of us. I'm still really excited about where the series is going to go, and more importantly, I want to find out more backstory on some of the characters on the show. Season 2 really did a 180 on a lot of the characters from the first. It made me dislike characters I previously liked and made me sympathize with some aspects I didn't care much about. Now I'm not entirely sure where this next is going to take us, and I'm kinda on the fence about this show which should have been a one-off continuing, but I'm happy to see them bringing it back. The first season was tapes and the second season was photos I wonder what object will be the focus for the third season.
