The very talented and sought after director Vashtie claims “the visuals of this piece would match the sexual sound of the song. shot less like a typical music video and more like a 60’s experimental french new wave film, our story takes place on a hot and steamy summer night in the Chelsea Hotel.”

“Nooka introduces their first collection of modern eyewear, bringing the brand’s sleek and cutting-edge design aesthetic to the world of sunglasses. The first collection will feature a polymer model in Nooka colors to compliment the Zub line.
The Nooka mercury will be available in six colors, including four neon shades, as well as the classic black and white. The polymer injected frames make the Nooka Mercury sunglasses light-weight yet durable with matching rubber nose-pieces and ear guards for added comfort. The blue lenses with silver mirror finish adequately deflect sun rays and provide UV protection, while ensuring a high level of color and contrast acuity. This combination of natural and synthetic materials coupled with the modern design and gem inspiration results in a playful yet sophisticated new take on eyewear.”

Last night at Nemo HQ in Portland, OR, Undertow’s latest art exhibit – “Testing the Waters” – kicked off! The aquatic-character based art group has various pieces throughout the exhibition that they’ll be auctioning off through June 30th (when the exhibit ends), including this Air Jordan 2010; a collaboration between Jordan Brand and themselves. A sort of UNC meets ACG look, the ‘UNDERTOW’-debossed AJ2010s feature a Safari-like droplet pattern. The shoe comes in an all-white upper with hits of University Blue on the toe cap, outsole, back collar and what looks like rawhide laces. Light grey water drop graphics appear by the forefoot, heel panel and socklining, while “UNDERTOW” is engraved by the lace region. Always philanthropic, Jordan Brand will be matching 100% of the proceeds generated from the event, which will be donated to St. Mary’s Home for Boys, a Portland-based charity that helps at-risk young men.
Finally I found a Boston tee to wear. Triumvir works up this special Boston Celtics colorway of its “Fuck Your Clique” tee. The shirt features a black base with green and white accents and is exclusively available now through Karmaloop for those interested.

Randolph Engineering have been meticulously hand-crafting eye-wear for the ruggedest of climates for over 35 years, counting the Navy and Military among their most ardent and trusted customers, all of whom are a testimony to the all-American-made quality of this brand. The P3 Submariners were originally designed for use inside submarines. From the late 1960’s onwards this style of eye-wear was made iconic by figures such as John Lennon and Arthur Lee. The sounds of Love, The Byrds, Bob Dylan and Allen Ginsberg’s “Howl” shouted like a heartbeat across America as the good old boys from the South went rolling through Viet Cong dug outs with nothing more than an acid trip and a long barrel. Sunglasses such as these are more than just fashion, they are woven into the fabric of history as relics of appropriation, and as pieces of true craftsmanship they represent a time honored tradition of enduring quality and durability.
Dee & Ricky, the New York based fashion design duo, have lent their trademark retro style to the latest edition to the G-Shock Family, the GA110DR-1A.

Available in July 2010, the GA100DR-1A will retail for $130 at select retailers.

We first heard Tiron almost a year ago when he came out to Dallas with Dom. I immediately went and downloaded his (at that time)latest mixtape entitled Ketchup. Now TiRon has put together some new dope sounds for your listening.
Anyone that knows me is aware that I dont care much for ready to wear bow ties. On the other hand MMM is one of the few houses that continues to progress in a manner which never puzzles the few who follow the line. It is important to note that some develop product for the masses while a unique few develop products for you and I. “Margiela’s Artisanal pieces are made from old and new fabrics, objects and accessories – all reworked entirely by hand.

We all know the winner of GQ’s 2010 (Billy Reid) “Best New Menswear Designers in America.” Now let’s review the selection process.
MYKITA helps out Bernhard Willhelm with two shiny gold sunglasses originally developed for his Winter collection inspired by the 1976 Olympics. “To celebrate the global success of model FRANZ, the metal aviator sunglasses stemming from the collaboration with German avant-garde fashion designer Bernhard Willhelm, MYKITA presents the FRANZ 24k.

The Kicktionary iPhone application is like an encyclopedia for kicks, chock-full of images and information ranging from name to make and release. No longer will there be a cliff-hanging moment for a sneakerhead in the midst of talking about kicks, the Kickionary iPhone application will be constantly updated to include as many kicks as humanly (or technologically) possible, and it is now available for download at the iTunes app store.
We bring you the upcoming collabo tee from Diamond Supply Co. and Wiz Khalifa. The drop features a graphic t-shirt with very famous "Un-Polo" Diamond Supply logo but this time they’re incorporating a Pittsburgh Pirates touch on it. As you see on the back the graphics between “Taylor Gang” and Diamond Supply Co. Look for the hat as well to drop with the shirts sometime in August.
These are not the actual Dee & Ricky assembled LEGO creations, but they incorporate more interesting elements, can be framed, and will instantly spruce up your white walls. Taking their 3D play to a new dimension (or more accurately, a reduction in dimensions), Dee & Ricky has teamed up with Russ & Reyn to create some limited edition prints of the LEGO duo’s creations.
Dee & Ricky’s interpretation of idioms such as “Eat Your Heart Out” (as pictured with a fork piercing a piece of LEGO, apparently removed from a LEGO heart), and “Heart Burn” (a blue LEGO heart placed strategically and nerve wreckingly below a lit cigarette) will hopefully put a smile on your face.
Ok so the Lakers took game 1 after all (so what). I know all you Laker fans want to go and support, so why not get a dope tee.
Vandal-A released a dope t-shirt design that reinterpreted a classic Biggie Smalls verse and threw some Laker colors on it. Which goes perfect with the Lakers Air Jordan VI that just dropped.
Freshjive also produces a tee in support of its hometown team. Playing off a familiar theme, the shirt focuses on the Lakers quest to avenge their 2008 Finals defeat at the hands of the Boston Celtics.

New music from Em’s Recovery album.
Travie McCoy’s debut album Lazarus via Decaydance/Fueled by Ramen/Nappy Boy Entertainment will hit stores on June 8th. Dont Forget Travis will be here in Dallas tomorrow.
Images have just surfaced of the Air Jordan 1 2K High, an interesting new spin on the classic AJ1. Inspired by the colors of the teams included in the last year’s AJ1 60+ collection, the 2K High features a multi-colored upper covered by a heavy triangular stitching pattern and sporting a new Jumpman logo tab on the heel. The shoe will come packaged in a luxurious drawstring bag inside a special Jordan box, and will be hitting Nikestore.com and Niketown locations today.
The sunglasses will be released in very limited quantities in July 2010 at Oliver Peoples boutiques in Soho and Sunset Plaza, as well as select retailers.
“Patterned after Native American hand woven blankets, both temples on the black Lyndel are individually hand laid using brightly colored ceramic beads. The frame design is retro-inspired in an angular plastic cut.The keyhole bridge accentuates the softly contoured lens shape while the frame front sports retro pin detailing. Hand beaded by Jenny Dayco, the former graphic designer and talent agent is self-taught in the art of jewelry designing and works in stinctively from the gut while her hands brilliantly produce each and every single piece.”
For $800, it’s tough not to go all out with materials and colors. That’s a big reason why the majority of Nike Air Force 1 Bespoke productions could be described as over-the-top. One might choose to “get his money worth” by using every available option of the Bespoke customization process, but this latest Bespoke, created by Paul Nguyen of Australia, manages to contain the materials and colors into one great package. The upper features a combination of red kevlar and black denim and a metallic silver heeltab, and the overall composition of the shoe says that Nguyen managed to exploit the Bespoke options and create a controlled shoe at the same time.
Nike brings back another classic in the Air Max 1 as we see a quickstrike edition of its white/varsity royal/neutral grey color up. For those interested, they are now available through a handful of Nike Sportswear accounts.
