20120831-083633.jpg

Pushing the boundaries of collaboration a little further than the norm, Stussy Japan has partnered with Honda for a one-off CRF250L motorbike. This dirt bike is an all-rounder that can be used on the streets and will feel comfortable on dirt tracks as well. Japanese motorcycle tuning garage Thruxton was given the responsibility to customize this bike. Unfortunately, this item is not for sale, but it is currently on display at Stussy Harajuku Chapter, followed by Osaka Minami Chapter, beginning mid-September. To commemorate the collaboration project, Stussy will be dropping a pair of t-shirts at the participating Stussy stores in Japan.

H&M Autumn Winter 2012 Lookbook

 

Despite being categorized under the umbrella of “fast fashion,” H&M has always maintained a decidedly high-end approach to its seasonal lookbooks, imagery and visuals. Presenting its Winter 2012 range, the Swedish retail and fashion giant debuts a minimalist and cleaned up pictorial highlighting its range of menswear. For this season, the brand initially displays an affinity for all things formalwear via tailored blazers, skinny ties and knitwear. While overtones of formal garb are heavily promoted.Obviously the swing to streetwear is is there in Letterman jackets & hoodies. Dont expect any of these items to be amazing quality or last more than a season..
