Another bit of Stone Island news as Supreme presents its aptly-timed collaborative capsule with Italian company for Winter 2014 season. Consisting of both a crewneck and hooded sweatshirt as well as a jacket, sweatpant and camp cap, the collection features subtle branding from both parties while retaining the performance-oriented features Stone Island is famous for. For example, the Raso Gommato Cover Nero Jacket is crafted from a wind and water-resistant cotton satin bonded to a polyurethane coating and outfitted with a removable liner.
Look for the collection in-store in at Supreme locations in New York, Los Angeles, London and online on October 2 and later across Japan on October 4. The capsule will also be available at select Stone Island stores.
If Burger King Japan’s goal was to make a burger as unappetizing as possible, they succeeded. The all-black cheeseburger looks pretty cool, but we’re not so sure we’d want it traveling into our stomachs. They made the bun with bamboo charcoal to give it its Darth Vader-like appearance, and they did the same with the slice of cheese the patty gets topped with. To add to its mysterious motif, Burger King created an onion and garlic sauce concocted with squid ink to make sure it oozes evil when you bite down.
Nike Sportswear is getting ready to drop a multilevel hybrid sneaker in the coming months, the Nike Air Force 1 Mowabb. The ACG-atized version of the Air Huarache with elements taken from the Wildwood became to being in early 90s as the Air Mowabb.
The fusion between the Air Mowabb and the Air Force 1, uses the 1982 basketball sneaker as its base. Giving the sneaker a Mowabb look, it is infused with a neoprene inner bootie. The cut has also been altered with a slightly higher higher construction than the traditional low. The look is complete with af1 spelt out on the tongue in lowercase lettering.
Here, we get a look at two colorways of the sneaker that are set to release as part of NSW spring 2014 collection in classically inspired palettes.
