Saucony Grid 9000 Snow Beach

Its got to take something pretty special to bring me out of my hiatus from dropping knowledge on fine internet establishments such as this one and this pair of Saucony’s are just that damn special.

The creative effort of Packer Shoes, Saucony, Just Blaze and Raekwon, although the efforts of the latter two are questionable, well it was a Raekwon outfit that provided the inspiration and Just Blaze hasn’t stopped talking about them since their birth but I guess arguing who did what isn’t so important when the shoes look this bloody good.

Be Street magazine #25

“Be Street is a multi-platform media brand about Art – Style – Music – Action Sports and more” This quarterly magazine is easily the best magazine I have never read.

Launched in 2008, Be Street has become a major quarterly publication distributed in 15 countries worldwide. Be-street.com reinforces the contact with the magazine’s readers, attracts new fans and provides a continuous flow of news. Sharing exclusive contents and the latest news, the website operates as an indispensable additional stream of info to the print magazine.

Be Street offers both physical and online content, in it’s native French and also English, and is the closest yet to offering everything that interests me. In addition to the magazine, they also have an online shop offering clothing, accessories (such as patches and phone cases) and collectible toys. Be Street basically is offering a one stop shop for all things impressionnant, and are doing it well. A one year subscription runs in at €20 with the majority of back issues available also.

Besides it’s content, the cover artists are a real strength for the magazine and include the likes of MISHKA, D.FACE, Shepard Fairey, Ron English, SSUR, NYCHOS and more. Be Street doesn’t slack on it’s features and boasts interviews with the likes of Schoolboy Q, Jim Greco, Pose, DP Customs, Nigel Sylvester, Jeff Staple, Zach Shuta, Flying Lotus, Jun Cha, Mix Master Mike, Die Antwoord and a shit ton more. This issue’s cover is by our favourites CYRCLE. The Dougs have been throwing up murals around the globe since their exhibition earlier this year at Stolen Space gallery in London, and it’s good to see them get exposure from such a relevant magazine. Along with the cover, you can read an interview with the guys as well as features on Kevin Gates, Little Dragon and Aaron De La Cruz.

Get your hands on everything you can here.

Gourmet Autumn Winter ’14

August 8, 2014 – 14:46 in Fashion | Calum

Gourmet Autumn Winter ’14

Gourmet’s penchant for classic sportswear silhouettes has been apparent since the brand’s first collection, but Autum Winter ’14 sees a slight change in pace for the Italian-American shoe connoisseurs. The influence of technical hiking boots is more prevalent, in a collection which is more ACG than AF1, and the wilderness-led lookbook also reflects this. Two new styles have been added this season – The Gaetano and Corridore – complimenting the Gourmet staple Quadici, which riffs on a classic duck boot, and their iconic 35.

The Black Lodge – Tom Bagshaw

The Black Lodge – Tom Bagshaw

British artist Tom Bagshaw has announced the availability of all new and original work entitled “The Black Lodge“. Reportedly taking a year and a half to complete, the series consists of eighteen one-off prints on heavy cotton rag stock, mounted on board, varnished and framed and comes with a COA.

Tom, also known under the moniker Mostlywanted, enlisted the help of fellow illustrators, artists, and even a tattooist as models for this series including Teresa Oaxaca, Toni Moore, Michelle Romero and Aviva Artzy. For his personal work he has developed a highly rendered digital painting style through which he explores themes of fantasy, beauty and mysticism and this is continued through this series. The prints are already selling out so be quick. Prices range from £350 – £550 and I would be surprised if any are left by the end of today.

Also available is The Black Lodge collectors book limited to 100 numbered, signed and embossed copies. Containing the collected Black Lodge portraits together with additional complimentary works, the book is produced on a soft eggshell stock, perfect bound and finished with a velvet laminate and spot UV cover.

Check out the remaining prints and the book via Mostly Wanted here.
