Kid Robot’s upcoming Tattoo Series Dunny’s have employed the services of a long list of well-accomplished tattoo artists to create this latest set. The artists include CIV, Eric Newman, Grez, Eric Merrill, Kevin Starai, Nick Baxter, Shane O’Neill, Dave Fox, Joe Capobianco, BJ Betts, Hannah Aitchison, and Matt Rinks. Although Tatoo artists are the general commonality among the bunch, a lot of them have also achieved success in music, illustration and fine art. As a result you will find some interesting accessories with each Dunny. Also each Dunny is coupled with a mini tattoo gun. Look for these to drop very soon!

Puma and Evisu have an ongoing denim collaboration that has gone on for a few years now.

The pockets are lined with unique wood effects and carvings in following with the green trend.
Here’s a look at what’s upcoming from Maiden Noir for spring of 2007. Each screen print is done by hand which may inevitably result in no single shirt exactly the same. There’s a strong basis in detail, fit, and the use of premium Japanese materials. Stock of Maiden Noir is generally quite limited so better get on this quick!

THE BRILLIANCE has a new interview up with a fresh hip-hop act out of Chicago called ‘The Cool Kids.’
This is just really good stuff here. The Cool Kids are seriously a breath of fresh air in a totally stale room full of totally uninteresting hip-hop acts. They embody a lifestyle/image that’s a bit of throw-back to the 80’s when hip-hop was all about having a good time while representing a little of the future as well, showing us something we’ve yet to see. The beats, the lyrics, the fashion, the presence, the ‘hey, just have fun’ attitude…their whole swagger – The Cool Kids are brilliant.
It’s a great interview – and they’re HYPEBEAST fans! Pay attention to these guys.
Phenomenon just released some new tees as part of their Spring collection. The tees included in this release are the Kaffiyeh Tee featuring the controversial Middle Eastern pattern reworked into a perfect circle, the “Something Like a Phenomenon Tee” with the symbol for the number 1 or Ichiban beneath the graphic, the Guns and Roses Tee featuring soldiers with assault rifles embedded in the chintzy florals, and the Diagram Tee featuring a houndstooth like pattern of Stars, Triangles or Squares. All tees look great but I’m playing favorites with the Diagram tees. The spring line will be available at select shops like Union in NYC and Arrive the first week of April.
