staple, 10.deep, HUF & black scale for art start

Four of the most respected street brands in the industry have joined forces to create a limited edition collection for the award winning NYC charity - Art Start.

Jeff Staple of Staple Designs, Scott Sasso of 10.Deep, Keith Hufnagel of HUF and Michael Yabut of Black Scale all come from different parts of the globe, but are all connected by the love of their work, and wanting to inspire and support others. I could listen to all four of them talk all day, watch the video above and just soak in the inspiration they give off for you to achieve exactly what you want in life.

Their collaboration will release on Black Friday - November 29th with 100% of the profits donated to Art Start.

10.Deep Holiday 2013 “Midnight” Lookbook

10.Deep have taken inspiration from day turning to night to create their new holiday collection. The collection rightly titled ‘midnight’ features dark blue and black tones throughout with Hawaiian floral prints, which are a strong favourite for the brand. The brilliant white accents add depth to the print designs to bring to life the colour palette of a tropical night sky.

Yet again styled and executed perfectly, I love every piece in the collection – the brand go from strength to strength each release and perfectly put out brilliant men’s streetwear with formal elements. The colour pallet also features dusty pink tones for a classic button down shirt – and the almost world flag like print on another. There are a number of pieces i have my eye on for the collection, so be sure if you live in the UK to keep your eyes on the brand distribution company Out Of Step for release information over here! 

Amongst the botanical and paisley prints the brand have incorporated Japanese text detailing as a tribute to the fictional city of Neo Tokyo also. The full lookbook is viewable here and the collection is set to launch tonight at 11:59pm EST on the brands online store.

see the full collection below - 

Yoshifumi Egawa x BAPE “A SKATING APE”

For Fall/Winter '13 professional skateboarder and A SKATING APE collaborator Yoshifumo Egawa fronts the 'A Skating Ape' video. Taking on the Tokyo cityscape, riding through the busy streets effortlessly. Head to toe in A SKATING APE's winter collection he sports a number of graphic tees, bright zip up hoodies and jackets. Showing the garments versatility and function - the video has a laid back feel which flows well with the brand and the collection.

rockwell by parra - survivor collection

so as you may know i am a ginormous parra fan, he could pretty much draw an illustration and set it in his famous colour palette on anything and i would buy it - i've popped some pictures of favourite pieces from my ever growing parra collection in for your viewing pleasure!

so when i spied today the new collection was due to release at 15:00CET i became so very overexcited! especially after seeing the images crop up of what will be available in the collection - needless to say the collection excels the last one with phone cases, key rings, bags, jackets and t-shirts and another brilliant skateboard deck design (AT LAST!)

i'm poised and ready to rock when it goes on sale and it's safe to say the skateboard deck will be coming home with me - or else! and be sure to have your trigger finger ready when it hits release time! 

check out the pictures of my favourite items below! PARRA I LOVE YOU!

asics gel lyte iii 'urban camo'

on friday afternoon these babies landed on my desk at work, my very own teeny size urban camos. having had my eye on this particular colourway since the preview snaps earlier in the year i have been waiting for these to release - and although at first i thought asics had left us small footed peoples out i was happy to get my paws on my prize UK4 in these!

put together in probably my 3 favourite colours - soft grey, black and baby blue they are the most incredible GR release i've certainly set eyes on in a while. the all grey toe is by far one of my favourite design concepts that asics is famed for - and the design actually even reminds me of my custom made in the USA new balance. the quality and fit is on point, i did worry the sizing would be a bit all over the place, but i should have had more faith as they fit like a dream.

unfortunately the weather has turned meaning i'll have to be super careful dodging puddles in these, but its safe to say they won't be coming off my feet for a while! they are still available over on drome's website.

stefan janoski x nike iD x pendleton

if the roshe run x pendleton sneak shots weren't enough to fill your love of the famous woolen mill, this coming monday (4th november) another nike iD concept is set to launch - one which incorporates one of my favourite nike silhouettes - the nike sb stefan janoski. 

the partnership adds new level to nike iD through new and exciting fabrics to construct with and also allowing it to expand onto skate silhouettes. the collaboration comes after the tremendously successful and continuing partnership with liberty of london and also some of our favourite nike materials such as safari and more recently elephant print.

it's not just the classic wool that the brand is offering up for us to run wild and design away till our hearts content of course, there will be a range of their staple and signature patterns - hopefully a lot of them! 

it's yet to be revealed if europe will see the launch the same day as america, so we can do is cross our fingers and hope that nike haven't let us down! (of course nows the time to call in a favour from any american friends if so!)

keep both eyes on the nike iD blog/twitter and webstore for updates on the launch, and make sure your poised ready by your computer for designing this monday!

so i wonder whats next for nike iD next year? personally i would love to see 3M as an option!
