Here’s a look at a new summer sunglass style from Sabre Vision called the Crue. This is what Sabre have to say about them:
“Have you ever thought about robbing a bank? or even your local 7-11? Or even being involved in a re-issue 70’s porno video with your cousin’s friends? If you have the “CRUE” are the sunglasses for you! They will make you do things you once thought were way to fast for the standard prime time television slot. I’m talking about going to disneyland dressed like a gladiator on acid with your dog driving the car. What’s wrong all of a sudden became very right.”
Available now in both white and black colorways with a grey fade lens.

Nigo shouldn’t be new to anyone in this culture. A household name amongst streetwear enthusiasts, Nigo has created an lifestyle empire from his label, A Bathing Ape also commonly known as Bape. Nylon Magazine has recently done a feature on this fashion superstar where he talks about the current position of Bape.
“The public perception, or at least the hater perception, is that I pay guys like Kanye and Pharrell [Williams] massive amounts of money to be involved with my music,Ã¢Â€Â Nigo says, by way of a translator, a few nights later in his five-story mansion just around the corner. (West features on the most recent single from NigoÃ¢Â€Â™s hip-hop crew, Teriyaki Boyz, and Williams has collaborated with him many times as both a producer and a guest vocalist. The two also have a clothing line together, called Billionaire Boys Club). Ã¢Â€ÂœBut in reality they are genuinely interested in working with me. People in Japan think that because I have a lot of money I can buy my way into anything I want to be in, but in reality itÃ¢Â€Â™s based on personal relationships. I think people find it hard to understand how I have such a great lifestyle off of selling some clothesÃ¢Â€Â¦”
Also available in this feature is a look at some upcoming Fall items. You can read the article at Nylon Magazine.

These huge Companions produced by Medicom Toy don’t come out that often (actually almost never). The 48” figure is limited to 100 pieces and retails for $2500 plus shipping. Unfortunately only US customers are able to purchase this figure so folks that are not in the States are out of luck.
