Stussy has gotten into the Holiday festivities with the recent release of this Christmas design. The Stussy skull can be seen wearing a Santa-esque hat with matching red/white font to boot. Available in both short and long-sleeve versions now at Stussy Direct.
Chinese label NSBQ has sought out a new format to spread their music. They have teamed up with fledging brand FAM as part of FAM’s Artist Series Collection. Within each of their upcoming Fu(c)Kin Music shirts, an SD memory card will be sewn into the inner tag (which also doubles as a blood type tag). Each SD card features exclusive mix tapes and never before released works by MC Yan + YP crew. In the future this concept will also encompass video mixtapes as well. Look for FAM to release two other artist designed shirts in the coming weeks.
The Hundreds and Brooklyn Projects will kick off the opening of their Censorship is Weak as F##k exhibition tonight with a special VIP party. The exhibition is a retrospective look at the history of skate art by Sean Cliver and Marc Mckee under the realm of World Industries. Their characteristically controversial and sarcastic art would be a highlighting point as World Industries would allow no social issue to be untouched as seen in this showcase.

Back in June, it was revealed that artist Kaws was to throw in some characteristics from his trademark Companion figures with Tokyo Tribe character Hasheem to create a toy. Originally seen in grey, the end result seen here seems to have been altered with a new face. Only two stores in Japan will receive shipment of these for their December 22nd release date. Also available will be two t-shirts created with Santastic.

The bare essentials is a good way to describe nonnative’s take on their version of the New Balance M1700. The once running marvel and flagship of the New Balance collection has been offered in two low key colors. The grey joint most likely tickles the fancy of those hard to please conservative northern Europeans that grace the likes of the Crooked Tongues forums while the white pair makes me think Warren Moon and the days of the defunct Houston Oilers.
Like many brands, (COMMUNE) was born out of the personal necessity to fill a void. (COMMUNE) set out to create a brand which took back certain elements prevalent in other forms of fashion and produce it on a more authentic level. The inspirations of bikes and cars of the outlaw nature is not a new concept, however there are few if any brands completing the full circle and encompassing design and quality together as one. Enter (COMMUNE) and their 2007 Fall/Winter Collection. Here’s the first taste of a four part look at their exciting and invigorating line which includes their cut & sew and t-shirt offerings. A full list of retailers can be seen at (COMMUNE)’s site.
