Earlier this month, Kidrobot and Swatch launched an extensive creative project unifying their respective icons on an artist-based collection of toys and watches. Eight artists were brought together to each creatively mastermind their own packs involving a 3-inch Kidrobot Dunny and a Swatch watch.

We were on hand in Shanghai to witness the official unveiling which included artist appearances from Frank Kozik and MAD as they speak about their involvement in the project and process.
The collection is limited to 300 numbered sets per artist and hits stores globally as of September 1, 2011. Look for availability via select Kidrobot and Swatch retailers.

If you know anything about me then you know that me and "Air Forces" are not friends. I wear a size 13 1/2 so on my foot they look like I'm wearing the box. I may make an exception for these though.
Inspired by the urban roots and unique culture of Brazil, and designed by the MC’s Emicida, Pixote and Xará and DJ Toddy, the Nike Brazil Air Force 1 “É Possivel” is the first Air Force 1 designed specifically for the country. The shoe is inspired by the manifesto created by the above mentioned influencers:
“We, as soldiers in an invisible army, march towards tomorrow as heirs of the ash on the streets and the offspring of a reality that is of interest to few.”
The Brazil Air Force 1, sporting Brazilian green-and-yellow eyestays against a black leather upper and engraved with the names of that country’s icons, is just one part of the project though. The story that the shoe tells will also be the subject of a short film, “É Possivel” (“it is possible”), which releases soon in Brazil and further educates on the country, using a mix of documentary film making and animation and focusing heavily on basketball’s effects in the country. Unfortunately for the rest of the world, the Nike Brazil Air Force 1 “É Possivel” releases in September exclusively in Brazil.

Classic in silhouette, both kicks are handmade in America (Maine, to be precise) and are comprised fully from Natural Horween Chromexcel leather.

Available now online from $225 USD to $275 USD.
After several looks into this season’s footwear offerings from the designer Hussein Chalayan x PUMA Urban Mobility collection, we bring the following editorial that highlights the essence of the brand. Conceived with movement and functionality in mind, the Fall/Winter range dabbles heavily into a darker color scheme, however not without several concentrated blasts of color and graphics. Despite the tailored approach, the sportswear is still surprisingly wearable and agile. Look for the collection now at select PUMA Urban Mobility dealers.
New from Supreme comes a full and extensive lookbook of what they have in store for the 2011 Fall/Winter season. Comprised largely of many of the same well-designed outerwear pieces featured below, this preview allows fans of the brand to comprehend all of the details of the pieces without models and scenery confusing the process. Polka-dots, paisley, rugby stripes and classic varsity patterns all made their way into this collection, as did a healthy sprinkling of heavily-branded pieces and collaborations with the likes of Futura, Bad Boy Records and Hennessy. Check it out and enjoy!
Following the departure of Christian Dior designer John Galliano, the French fashion house has been patient trying to find a successor with the latest prospect being Marc Jacobs. According to WWD , Jacobs who is the creative director for Louis Vuitton as well as his own eponymous label is said to be in “very serious” talks with Dior. This could prove to be a new creative direction for the designer as his contract is up for renewal this year with LV. If Jacobs accepts, he is said to bringing long time business partner Robert Duffy on board as well.
The Berlin-based duo HTRK has a similarly confrontational style to punk legends Suicide, yet the group trades the original's doo-wop Americana for something much colder, slower and foreign on its cover of "Sweetheart (AKA Love You)." Drums and bass plot along slowly while the rest is a smeared, cloudy mess. Unfortunately, we have a feeling this is the sort of love that ends very, very badly. Grab "Sweetheart" and A-side "Eat Yr Heart" on HTRK's first single (limited to 300) promoting its upcoming record Work (work, work) out September 6 on Ghostly.[soundcloud id='21653319']
[soundcloud id='21653728']When living in a world that gets more diversified everyday its only right that our music gets a lil' more "diversified" as well.Presented with little comment: jj’s naturalistic, oh-so-Swedish chillpop swirled with Ne-Yo’s southern R&B swag. “We Can’t Stop” is thick, strange, and aqueous until three minutes in, when it briefly slips into a soft, top 40 jam before finally succumbing to a curious swamp of both. Overtly melodic, highly nonsensical, and a great start to a weird week. I LOVE IT.
