Street Etiquette delves into the world of music and sound with a new video titled “Sartorial Sounds.” Of course the project is in some way fashion-driven as it presents an intersection of music and style. Various personalities contribute via word, rap, song and tap for a comprehensive offering. Some of the people involved include Jesse Boykins III, Mara Hruby, Joekenneth Museau, Joshua Bennett, Theo Martins, Melo–X and Rinaldy Alvarez. The recognizable Andre 3000 song is also covered by Mara Hruby.
“Sartorial Sounds integrates both music and style, two elements embedded in every culture past and present. We think it’s important to remember that everyone is an artist in their own right. And it’s the life experiences we encounter that provoke what we splash on our own blank canvas. We assembled seven individuals to partake in this editorial. The finished product incorporates their individual talents such as spoken word, rapping, singing and tap.”

Rye Rye has finally decided to drop some visuals for "Hardcore Girls". The single was released back in 2008 with THE COUNT AND SINDEN but it sounds just as good now and gives you that summer time feel that I love from Rye Rye. Plus all of the hardcore girls in the video are dolled up in some of DIMEPIECE's fits (with Rye Rye sporting the 'Hold Me Tight' jumpsuit similar to the dress). Girl power. Enjoy.

Written by Lori Lobenstine with photography by Amanda Lopez, FSF is on the verge of releasing their first ever photo documentary of women all over the world and their passion for sneakers.

You can be apart of the project by catching one of their photo shoots coming to city near you. They've already hit LA, Boston, NY, and Minneapolis so don't miss your chance. Check out more about the project on Female Sneaker Fiend's website, here.

Take a look at Air Jordan V this Wolf Grey model that has a lot of sneaker fans excited. With rumors of a forthcoming pack with the “Laney” and “Grape” colorways, this Wolf Grey model, as the detailed shots show, is a neck-snapper that will satiate the hungry Air Jordan V-seekers. With an upper constructed of tumbled nubuck, and contrast white stitching, the clean colorway is versatile and striking. The more blue-tinged icy soles provide a nice bit of contrast as well. Rounding out the grey variations is the 3M tongue, which will gleam on this colorway. One slight change is a fully translucent sole, which replaces the partially-translucent sole of the OG and retro models we’ve seen so far. These drop on May 14th, but if you want yours now, head to MarqueeSole quickly, as these really are not going to last.

In 1996, when the Air Jordan XII was first released, there were no low top models released from the that year when the OG dropped.

Now, 7 years later in 2011, we get another low top version of a shoe that used Japan’s rising sun as an inspiration for the design on the upper. No more information is available as far as the release of this low version, so stay up on game for more info.

Oliver Peoples founder Larry Leight was inspired to explore his personal archive of original Oliver Peoples designs. After losing himself in a time machine of memories, Larry discovered several iconic, brand-defining styles with original vintage glass lenses in rare shades. Convinced that interest in these classic styles is just as strong today as it was twenty years ago, he wanted to make some available to select customers. Since very few originals still exist, and because it is essential that the same attention to detail, craftsmanship and the integrity of the original styles be retained, the brand reached out to the same Japanese factory to reproduce these designs in a limited run. Offered below is view of this collection for Oliver Peoples Vintage.
