Boy by Band of Outsiders Fall 2008 Collection

Lets take a trip to Scotland.

The Cool Kids - "Mikey Rocks" (Y.S.I.) Video

Sexual Eruption - New Robyn On Snoop Track

Robyn buts her touch on Snoops Sexual Eruption. The track is dope, she kills it. Her whole techno vibe and voice over the beat went perfect with the song.

We dropped a few pieces from the Swagger S/S collection "City to City Coast to Coast" earlier this month. The Japanese brand has stepped it twice up and revamped their website, along with updating it with more items from the collection. Check it, try to not bob your head the entire time you're on the site (You'll get it).


Check out one of Karmaloop's newest brands, Caked Out. With some of the most clever novelty tees, shedding some light on the debauchery in today's media. Available now at Karmaloop.

More cool stuff by The Hundreds over at DG. They probably have the biggest selection of TH pieces I've seen.

Glimpse of the UNDFTD, Adidas, and Estevan Oriol 1979 collaboration. Adidas will also be releasing a top ten sneaker book surrounding the exhibit, and a special box set containing both the sneakers and book. This are definitely not the kicks to play basketball in.

Robert Geller S/S 2008 Collection Interesting collection Checkout the rest here.

In addition to the “SNEAKER LOVER” Aki Hoshino Photo Book launched in Japan today, KIKS TYO will also launch 2 special limited edition t-shirts in March. KIKS TYO, Aki Hoshino and ledgendary Tokyo-based photographer Yasumasa Yonehara (aka Yone) have collaborated on a six series limited edition “Sneaker Lover” photo print t-shirt, which celebrate the release of the new Aki Hoshino “Sneaker Lover” photo book. For customers who purchase this tee during the pre-order period, their name will automatically be entered into a drawing to receive the new MEDICOM produced. Only 300 pieces were created, and all will be presented to the winners February 15th.

I love Stella Macartney, and I LOVE what she's doing with Adidas. The Spring/Summer 2008 collection will be revealed for the first time during London Fashion week. Highlights are the introduction of Golf as a new sports category, and 100% organic cotton pieces. The spring/summer 08 collection will be available in adidas shops, Seibu, D-mop, I.T. and Lane Crawford on the 1st February 2008.

The benefit of living in California is, you get to wear these bad boys everyday! And believe me when I say WE DO. Havianas which are the best sandals in the world have created a Top Crystal collection for February. With manochromatic straps and soles, the brand explores glamour with THREE swarovski crystals featured on the front of the thong. The collection will drop in 8 different colors, for about, hold your breathe, $320! For that price I will walk my ass downtown, purchase some swarovski crystals for $20 and glue them on my original $15 Havi's, but, to each his own.

I was just hound last christmas for purchasing a Miu Miu, but this bag makes me *Yawn*. The good aspects are the straps adjust, the leather is SUPER soft and makes a comfy fit, and the bag comes in black, ivory and grey. Maybe it's just this color throughing me off? However I think the black with gold might be alittle more appealing to my eye. It's due to arrive with Spring merchandise for about $1,345.

I've never seen an Asian women dancehall! WAIT UNTIL YOU SEE THE HOT WALK!

N4E1 will be releasing their spring line with TIRET New York, former Roc-A-Fella Records CEO Damon Dash’s luxury time piece company. Their mission was to reflect the fusion of luxury and style, using over 2million dollars worth of the TIRET collection. N4E1 will be at MAGIC next month, some labels need a 2M nitch to get off the ground, kudos to the props!

DAVID DAVID S/S 2008 Collection



Aside from the Blazer, the Air Max 90's edition has to be my other favorite Nike design. This re-release will be dropped in a Black/White/Blue/Red colour-way, along with a black and white geometric pattern on the back of the shoes. Nike decided to use mesh instead of leather, and red stitching and laces which add extra fire to the sneakers. This pair should be released later this year, so keep one eye open. Via SneakerFiles

Digital Gravel has released the rundown on ALL their new Spring items instock from Streetwear mega label, and on of my favorite bloggers The Hundreds. Honestly, I thought it was EXTREMELY dope until I found out it wasn't leather, really disappointed me. The collegiate jacket features black nylon on the torso and hood, with heather grey fleece sleeves, and a black/grey striped wrist cuffs and waist. The front features a "The Hundreds" embroidery over large "T" and "H" embroidered fleece applique letters, and of course the all mighty BOMB on the right sleeve. You can cope this and a WIDE selection of other new Hundreds items here.

Japanese brand SiFURY released their 2008 lookbook. The pale and pastel colors, along with the overall look makes me want to go fishing, or something of that nature. Their collection is different from many labels we see coming out of Japan, this is what we call the refined approach.

Here's another drop Nike has scheduled, using the same elephant print pattern as used in another release earlier this week. Below is a reversible breaker, and above a dry-fit sports hoodie.

I'm a huge photography head, so when I heard about the interview photographer Boogie conducted with PingMag I quickly jumped on it. Look at these photos, how can you get more real than that? The former Yugoslavian native moved to Brooklyn in 1998, and started observing his surroundings. Using his third eye, he captures the lifestyle in a shot, without judgement. Amazing interview, and even more amazing photos, which you can checkout here.

This February Nike will be bringing back the Air Safari 1 in a new updated color scheme, through the Nike Tech Pack crew. The colorway is somewhat, but not exactly similar to the famous sneaker which dropped back in 07'. Look for the Tech Pack Air Max 1 Supreme, along with Air safari 1 on 2.22.08

NorgMark, a new women's label from Denmark has released their Spring / Summer Collection. I'm really quit intrigued, The leather skirt along with the puffed blouse really caught my eye. Their pieces are very 'abnormal' yet 'normal' everyday wear. Mild couture, with subtle colors and loose fitted cuts. Aside from runway, this is probably my favorite collection I've seen thus far. You can see their entire collection here.

At Shoe The Bear a sneaker is never just a sneaker, no no folks, it's a dynamic brand. All B.S aside they do have a cool collection. The brand aimes at having an innovative and creative design force behind every series. Their unisex Spring / Summer collection which features work from Artist Anders Ladegaard, is scheduled to drop next month.

Limited-Edition sneaker boutique LACES has closed its doors. The store located at 252 Mott Street has said Adios to the retail world, all of the kicks cleared from the window and the website down. The shop which had only been around a little over 2 years just wasn't receiving the love it needed from the ladies.

Wings+Horns will drop these bad boys in the next few weeks. Is it just me or are all these shoes starting to look the same? They will be released in black leather and also white, a fun fact about the shoe is, they're produced in the same factory as GUCCI!

ObeyxFuji VS. Nike AFI Silver Service Fixie

We have two bikes to dish the run down on today, both stories straight out of Japan. Obey and Fuji Bikes from Japan have teamed up for this limited edition fixed gear two-wheel terror. The all black and gold bike features Miche Primato 48T crankset, Miche bottom braket, 18T fixed track cog, KMC z410 chain and the brooks swift leather saddle. Only 300 of these bad boys are available world wide. Now, below we have the AF1 Silver Service installation, which is part of London's Dover Street Market, created by the Wilson Brothers . We don't have much scoop on this as we did for the Obey, however there will be a short documentary coming out covering the bikes creation. These two bikes remind me of Blades of Glory, Obey is Chazz Michael Michaels and The Silver Fixie Jimmie MacElroy. Just think about it.
