For the upcoming 2008 Spring Collection, XLarge has cooked up a series of collections which include the Fat Food, 1991 and the OG Collection. As the name suggests, some pieces are themed around the aforementioned Fat Food theme and include all-over prints of fries, burgers and shakes. The rest of the collections take more subtle approaches which revolve around their earlier styles. Some pieces will release in the coming days. Available at STLESS.

A further look into the extensive "Voice of a Generation" Collection from Neighborhood. Much of the collection incorporates a variety of simple and basic designs with the highlights coming via the characteristically high quality construction and attention to detail often associated with Neighborhood. Also seen within these releases are collaborative pieces created with fragment design. Look for these to hit select Neighborhood dealers in the coming weeks.
Although not one of the easiest pieces to pull off, Bounty Hunter recently released a Fur Muffler in both black and leopard designs. Something to consider for those chilly and windy days. The muffler measures in at 140 cm. These are currently available at Cliffedge.
