Japanese bag and accessories company master-piece brings this look at their spring/summer 2013 collection. With their bags all being made in Osaka with high quality craftsmanship and unique materials and fabrics the brand really nails it in the bag dept. Another thing I always like about the brand is their presentation, with high quality lookbooks that give a certain mood that really works with the collections themselves. This time around they went all SoCal on us with this surf inspired lookbook, which really ties in with the custom hand-made surfboard range they worked on with Japanese board shapers T-Men.
Supreme has been the subject of much internet chatter lately regarding the label’s mainstreaming and what it means for streetwear (read this excellent Four Pins article for reference). Regardless of how you feel about the NYC staple the North Face collaborations are always fire and this s/s 2013 offering is no different: I’ll take the grey jackets without a second thought, and the backpack. The pricepoint may be what makes the decision for most people but there is really no going wrong with this ongoing partnership.
Straight from Copenhagen is Ykiki, who landed with this capsule collection in our inbox this week. Really nice touch to the doodle logo, the snap and crewneck are mega clean. Also featured is this video lookbook preview for their s/s 2013 collection.. another line to keep tabs on.
Part 2 of the MC roadtrip we featured back here, Edwin and Kingdom of Kicks still making it look amazing.
Riding personally customised bikes with a couple of old tents thrown in, no map, a healthy dose of rain, old skateboards and knackered out surf boards, Nico’s famous catapult, and eyes for mischief and adventure, the marauding members of the ‘FURTHER’ crew celebrate the best of times putting their product to the test.
FairEnds have released this small collaborative effort with Oakley with these two custom sunglass styles. The two styles of choice are the Frogskin (84/85 favourites) and the Jawbone, both done in a custom extra black frame with grey lenses (the Jawbone has interchangeable grey a black lenses for riding) with custom red Oakley branding on one arm and blue on the other with a FairEnds logo on the inside ear piece. These are super limited to 30 pairs of each, so act fast on these puppies. More product shots after the break.
