Stussy Deluxe X Timberland Chukka

Stussy Deluxe and Timberland have teamed up once again on a new collaborative effort, this time in the form of a chukka boot. The versatile five-hole silhouette, reinforced with a Gore-Tex lining and Vibram sole, comes in three different colorways — one in black leather, the other two in brown or dark grey suede. Branding is limited to the Timberland tree logo embossed on the side, along with Stussy’s interlocking “S” logo on the heel tab.

Junya Watanabe MAN Hooded Field Coat

Love this coat from Junya Watanabe MAN’s Winter 2011 collection. A classic Hooded Field Coat reinterpreted for by the Japanese designer in his signature style. A mix of Flannel, Drill Cotton and Leather with function at the heart of the design.

 

Raf Simons Home by WSJ

WSJ spent some time with designer, Raf Simons, at his home in Antwerp, Belgium. “Designed in 1968—Simons thinks it’s kismet that it’s the year he was born—by a Belgian couple who imported Modernist furniture, the two-story, open-floor-plan apartment is a primer in mid-century Modernism. A longtime collector of mid-century furniture, Simons knew he would buy it the minute he saw the wenge-wood floating staircase, built-in cabinets and floor-to-ceiling sliding-glass windows.” LINK

Eames Lounge Chair Asia Limited Edition

Eames continue to set a strong precedent when it comes to furniture, and this latest design again represents a strong combination of functionality and conceptual design. Limited to the Asian market, this clean black leather lounge chair and foot rest makes for a great release, all be it at a descent cost. SlamxHype

Shrine Sneaker Storage Display Rack

I used to consider myself  a sneakerhead which I left behind when I moved in with my girlfriend many years ago (still havent forgive her!) but I still indulge in a few extra unnecessary pairs of kicks simply because they look good.  The point though is the fact that we didn’t spend the better part of our adult lives amassing our collection just to leave them on the floor or a random stand from IKEA. These things are works of art and they need to be displayed as such. And that’s where the Shrine Sneaker Rack comes into play. Laser cut from sheet metal and bent into place, the rack easily mounts to the wall to display your favorite pieces of wearable art LINK
