Track + Field is a brand based in Philadelphia which creates a wide range of accessory bags. For this Spring 2007, they have created a whole line of bags exclusively featuring Sunbrella brand’s 100% solution-dyed acrylic fabric. This water resistant fabric’s strength and color refuse to fade even under the harshest conditions, while retaining the softness of spun cotton. This season contains many styles including backpacks, flight bags, messenger bags, record bags, tote bags, and a selection of women’s bags. The entire line also features bright colors and trendy patterns, which is definitely a great look for this coming summer.
A few weeks ago, we detailed the Uniqlo UT Project which was essentially a huge collaborative effort with designers and personalities all around the world to create and re-market the staple tee-shirt in a new light. As you can tell by the pictures, all the tee-shirts are available for sale in a cannister and create quite an overwhelming visual overload of many different designs. Although you don’t have the good fortune of viewing and buying your tee’s at Uniqlo stores other then the UT Project, the same tee’s are currently available on racks across Uniqlo’s worldwide.

On April 28th, Nike hosted the Mr. Shoe Museum (sample) exhibition which was held at Nike706 venue in Beijing, China. The event was to promote the Nike Air Force 1 25th Anniversary. Special guest Michael Lau was invited from Hong Kong to present his new Air Force 1 Mr. Shoe. Like the Bearbrick, the Mr. Shoe model is a model where artist and designers can be created with each individual’s own inspiration. Michael Lau, chose the Air Force 1 as his figure because it’s his favorite Nike sneaker model. For more images of the event, head over to kiDulty.
