Once again Alife NYC gets together with Reebok, presenting the second collaboration series on the Reebok Court Victory Ball Out. In the first series they presented the Ball Out in a “tennis ball” yellow colorway, cream and orange colorway. This time around they present two fresh new colors, black and pink, with more to follow.
The black and pink colorways have been released in the Alife NYC online store. A great sneaker and both for the colorful and the more subtle type, this collaboration has got something ready.
The O’Neill H4 Campack is designed to be used as a fully functional snowboard backpack with the addition of an integrated portable media player and external camera lens.
With ease-of-use lying at the heart of the H4 Campack, the wearer is able to start and stop recording almost effortlessly by pressing a large button positioned on the left shoulder strap. There is most probably no better way to film freestyle and freeride snowboarding action.
The portable media player is positioned in the backpack’s top pocket safely stored between protective padding. The media player records all the action captured by the goggle strap or helmet mounted camera lens. For instant review on the mountain slope, open the top pocket and check your action via the media player’s screen. For sharing or Internet upload, take out the SD card which is used for video storage and copy the videos to a laptop.
Definitely a pretty nice idea and actually something that makes sense. The O’Neill H4 Campack will soon be available at the Colette online store.
We have already presented you several pieces out of the extensive Burton x Warhol collection this year. So far you have seen snowboards, boots, a luggage collection, as well as some t-shirts. Here we present you now the outerwear that is part of this collaboration collection.
There is the Icon Coat, which features the same design as we have previously seen on the luggage collection. More exciting is certainly the Hooded Jacket, which comes with a large design on the front and the multicolor revolver print on the inner lining.
Both jackets have arrived at The Glade and other premium Burton accounts around the globe. Definitely the right jackets to spice it a little up on the slopes.
Incase has released their protective cover for the iPhone in more colors, actually the CMYK pack. These cases represent the four standard process colors referred to as CMYK or Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black. In print, these fundamental elements work together in creating the full spectrum of color.
The Incase covers proofed to be some of the most useful and least disturbing ones. Now you finally have some more fun colors in there as well.
The Supra Muska Skytop is one of Supra’s most successful models and has had lots of success lately. For the Holiday ’07 season they came up with a special colorway, the Gold Perforated Limited Edition version of the sneaker.
The Supra Muska Skytop Gold Perf will release in very limited quantities around the globe this coming week. If you are in the SF area, go grab them at Turf.
Vane developed a new version of the “We Are All Vane” Pendant.
“This jewelry piece is def pretty controversial, but fun. The partner’s in Vane are all different religions, so that got us to thinking about dudes rocking crosses and things like that. The piece is a combination of three major religion’s symbols: Islam, Christianity, and Judaism. This piece is def one of our favorites because it describes city life so well – many different ethnicities, religions, cultures, and ideas all living together. Vane def thinks that the world loses sight of the fact that we are all equal and can coexist.”
The pendant comes in three different finishes – gun metal plated, brass plated, and silver plated. All the pieces are made of pewter. The pewter pieces sell for $85. They also created a sterling silver version, which sells for $1200. The piece was carved by hand in silver and then lost cast molded – this gives it a unique feel. The piece is 100% made in New York like all Vane goods. The pendant comes on a great 36 inch brass rope chain.
In a bid to woo Mac proficient hipsters, San Francisco’s acclaimed Hotel Diva commissioned a handful of well-known urban designers to create four “Diva Lounges” (as if the complimentary use of iMac computers weren’t enough to lure visitors). Designed by Pablo Pardo, Pablo Designs Lighting Lounge features modern luxuries like the Bel Occhio pendant globe ceiling light and Ventana hanging wall light. LeeQuen Loungeboasts famed couturier Colleen Quen’s signature Madame Butterfly gown(it cascades from the ceiling as a light fixture) and avant-garde furniture by Rick Lee Designs. DLX Lounge—which is done up in bold hues, with a clear resin Philippe Starck computer stool—showcases cool skateboards to covet,plus clothing and accessories from San Francisco’s DLX Skateboards &Clothing store. Lastly, DWR Lounge is an ode to Design Within Reach. Highlights include a loveseat from San Francisco designer Ted Boerner’s Theatre collection, Marco Zanuso’s mid-century classic Lady Chair, and Bauhaus master Marcel Breuer’s Laccio table. The lounges are open around the clock, which makes them inviting for those of us who have deadlines calling, or for workaholics who simply desire a change of scenery.
PUMA and iconic Oriental lifestyle brand, Shanghai Tang, have once again teamed up to celebrate one of PUMA’s most celebrated women’s styles, the Lena, a limited edition footwear line.
This exclusive women’s release complements Shanghai Tang’s mission to inject modernity, sophistication and relevance into Chinese culture. It also features Shanghai Tang’s signature print and comes in two bold colors – pink & green. The black suede leather vamp on the Lena combines with the smooth satin-like textile print to create a unique look that makes a statement, yet is easy to wear.
But it is pink, very pink. We suggest that you keep it in the closet until it gets a little warmer again! These are now available at Overkill.
