At the Converse booth we saw a lot of new products but what especially caught our eye is the new stuff from the Converse Red line, a line designed with the vision to help the AIDS cause. For this line, they will be collaborating with a 100 different artists to create the red products. Parts of the sale will go towards supporting the AIDS cause. Another line that caught our eye is the new shoes from the Converse by John Varvatos line. You can check out some of the images after the jump.
Untitled is a book featuring artwork and photography from various figures in the industry including Haze, Mash SF, Michael Lau, Mark Gonzales and Fatsarazzi. At BBB, they were showing select pieces from the latest issue no. 7.
Free Gold Watch is a relatively new brand based out of San Francisco. Their line consists of t-shirts, cut and sew pieces and accessories with a humorist spin to them. The designs are bold and innovative and the sunglasses have “hater blocker” printed on the inside of the frame.
As we were making our last rounds at BBB, we were offered the chance by The Hundreds to take some sneak peeks of their upcoming Holiday 2007 line. The line included some colorful plaids with a wrinkle-esque texture printed on top and cords with some interesting detailing on the back pockets. Look for these pieces to drop at The Hundreds store and various The Hundreds dealers around the globe.
We had a chance to talk to the guys at the New Era booth and they gave us a detailed look of their already released super-hero line. The line is available only at their London flagship store. The most popular cap of the series is the Joker cap which has already been sold out at the New Era London flagship stores. New Era is looking to introduce more caps featuring other characters from DC Comics so keep your eye out for news on that.
Sometimes all stories need new tricks which is the case with the upcoming Fall/Holiday release of this new updated Converse Jack Purcell Leather II. The Purcell Leather II was given a contemporary update but doesn’t look too far off the beaten path of its popular predecessor. Available in three colorways, black/black, white/white and a black/white. Look for a price tag of $70 USD when these drop.
