We previously reported about the Comme des Garcons Oswald t-shirt and to elaborate on that here is more info on this upcoming project. Dover Street Market will have a Comme des Garcons structure located in the lobby accessed via left entrance of the store called the HUT BOX. HUT BOX is a kiosk-like structure designed by Rei Kawakubo. It will sell perennial Comme des Garcons items like PLAY, wallets and perfume as well as event related, special edition products. A similar Red Box structure will be at the Comme des Garcons store in Paris and for both launches they will introduce Oswald the Rabbit products. There will be five t-shirts and two shirts within different lines and also wallets. A few interesting facts are that Comme des Garcons is the first company allowed to use this Oswald character and Oswald is one year older than the ever popular Mickey Mouse.
The Dover Street Market HUT BOX will be launched on the 20th January 2007.

DQM, Huf, Kicks/Hi and Vans have come together for an incredible collaboration project. This project will probably be talked about for quite sometime as more sneakers are gradually being released. Each store has designed a Vans chukka boot and I must say all of them definitely represents their own style. There will also be a Half Cab, an Authentic, and an Era in this project following the Chukka release and the Chukkas are set a reasonable $95. There is still some wait as the Chukkas will release on March 1st, so check out the pictures for now and think about which ones to pick up.
Kobe’s historical performance scoring 81 points against the Raptors is one to remember. To celebrate this achievement, Nike has put together a website called “WHY81?” counting down to the one year anniversary of this historical date. Nike has also created a limited edition Zoom Kobe 1 that is limited to 81 pairs and can only be purchased by winners of their scavenger hunt contest. For contest details, head over to Why81 and check out the official rules and for Kobe fans, good luck getting these shoes.
