We previously posted some items from the Japanese label Undercover’s “Summer Madness” Collection here. Now here are more items from that collection which includes All Star-esque sneakers, zip up parkas, hooded tailor jackets and of course t-shirts. The tees goes for $700 HKD each and will be available at the Undercover store in Hong Kong.
What’s even more interesting about this post is the chrome Apple Macbook seen in the picture with the shoes. It’s most likely a custom job but anyways, I want my Macbook chromed out now.
You may have heard of the footwear label Cause from their projects with Stussy or recently, CLS. This rising footwear brand from Japan has just teamed up with Seattle based label, Maiden Noir, for an upcoming collabo sneaker. Maiden Noir as you know is known for their darker themed clothes so this sneaker has naturally been designed in the same manner. Only a selected few Maiden Noir retailers will be getting these in at the end of the month. They will be retailing for $175.
French blog Guillotine has picked up another interesting find at the Bread and Butter tradeshow in Barcelona.
