Movember Posters

Humor + design + a good cause always makes an wicked result. That’s what happens when the guys over at TBWA Singapore created these Movember posters. If you don’t know:

“During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces, in the UK and around the world. With their “Mo’s”, these men raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and other cancers that affect men.”

These clever posters show you just what a mustache can do!



Nike Tennis 2011 Wimbledon Collection For Roger Federer


Of the four Grand Slam championships in tennis, only Wimbledon lacked the word “open”.  Partly because the feat to play on the All England Club‘s grass courts itself is already an unique experience.  The oldest among the four and considered by many to be the most prestigious, the remarkable lore and history embedded here, such as the longest tennis match ever at last year’s championship, makes an appearance here a moment to behold. This is especially true for Roger Federer, who is looking forward to win back his number #1 world rank from his long time rival, Rafael Nadal. In support of his intention, Nike and Nike Tennis designed the 2011 London Collection for the most successful tennis player to date.

In accordance to Wimbledon’s “all white” uniform policy, the Roger Federer x Nike Tennis Collection for 2011 Wimbledon is a mostly white affair, with accents in deep green as Federer’s request. Like all performance apparel,  Nike’s Dri-FIT fabric played a big role in the creation of the RF Trophy Lawn Polo and Trophy Woven Taped Short. All seams are Sonic Welded, a process which reduced the need of extra fabric or threads and lessen chafing. As with the clay courts of Roland Garros, the lawn surfaces of Wimbledon are notoriously unpredictable. To compensate Federer’s astonishing speed with sure footing,  Nike turned to Lunar Vapor 8 Tour again. With its full length Lunarlon foam as outsole for supple support and agility, its Flywire overlay “lock down” each foot for a snug fit, thus ensure Federer to stomp out the competition. See Roger Federer in his new Wimbledon kit starting on June 20th.

2011 Rolex Explorer II

This year marks the 40th anniversary of the Rolex Explorer II so its only right that the company celebrate the occasion with a brand new version. The new Explorer II gets a larger 42mm case and features the company’s new 3187 calibre that boasts Paraflex shock absorbers and a non-magnetic Parachrom hairspring. They’ve also captured the look of the 1971 original with an orange 24-hour arrow hand.

Engineered Garments Spring Summer 2011 Lookbook

The Engineered Garments Spring/Summer 2011 Collection is another great installation from Daiki Suzuki, with the attention to detail speaking volumes. Here is a look at some key items, refined and minimal while the balance of subdued shades and bold vibrant patterns makes the collection a highlight.

Norse Projects Autumn Winter 2011 Lookbook

Norse Projects send over some interesting imagery to represent their Fall/Winter 2011 collection. This lookbook put together by the Danish label was shot on Møns Klint or the Cliffs of Møn to us English folk. It’s an impressive landmark and tourist attraction along the eastern coast of the Danish island of Møn in the Baltic Sea. The bright chalk cliffs really do lend well to the clothing and showcase the garments in a clean and fresh environment. This stuff will be hitting stores around June/July but you can buy the Spring Summer collection here

As always with Norse, the outerwear looks exceedingly good and the knitwear has also come on leaps and bounds over the seasons. I don’t always like the so called ‘hype’ factor around a brand, but the boys over at NP can definitely make some great clothing.
