Crooked Tongues has a great feature on the Cliche x Nike SB Classic shoe. The feature gives more insight to how the project came about and how the shoe is not only commemorates ClichÃƒÂ©’s 10th anniversary, but is also themed around the Euro’s 5th birthday. On top of that, CT did an interview with ClichÃƒÂ© brand manager Al Boglio, ClichÃƒÂ© graphic designer Eric Frenay and Nike SB’s Seb Palmer to tell us more how the project came about.

After New York, Beijing and Hong Kong, Nike will be celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the Air Force 1 in Germany. The exhibition takes place at the Nike Spirit Room on January 25th. The party will take place in a secret location on that night but it’s most likely an invite-only event. For those who are in that area, this is definitely something to check out.
For those who aren’t fortunate enough to be at the event, you can take a look at some images of the space after the jump.
House of Cassette has been in the works for quite a while now. It’s the creative output of Peter Lee James and again boosts a whole collection, rather than being a t-shirt brand, which is rather refreshing. It’s based in L.A. and it’s focus are denims, very nice ones at that too. Peter was good enough to send some samples over a little while ago, and they’re killer. High quality denims, great finishes and good cuts. So good infact that Vogue France now even picked them up. Check the article here. Again, a brand to look for.

This should be a good one. Rick Klotz, the brainchild behind Freshjive & his companions spent three weeks in Mexico and even had some time to shoot some flicks, I know I wouldn’t. Rick’s photographic work has always been top notch, ranging from close up portrait shots on Skid Row to Mexican Gangs, so expect something real good at this show. If you will be in Barcelona next week this is a definite “must-attend” show. The show opens Wednesday, the 17th at 8pm at the Vallery Gallery. See you there.
