The Puma California which was first released in 1982 was one of the cornerstones of the sportswear brand. Now reviving the California sneaker back from the dead, Puma will be releasing three styles which draw inspiration from rich Californian lifestyle. One of the three styles seen here is the “Cali Woody” which is themed after the classic 40’s station wagon known as the “Woody Wagon”. The shoe features the state of California on the tongue tag, there will be palm trees on the heel and a translucent surf board print on the sole. These will be limited in only 200 pairs and will be available only at the Puma retail shop in Santa Monica starting February 1st.

We rarely talk about hi fashion brands like English brand Alexander McQueen here on HYPEBEAST. Sometimes we talk about their collaboration with Puma but that’s not too often. However, this new t-shirt is definitely worth a mention. Alexander McQueen has just released a new t-shirt which features their signature skull motif as a print on the front. The skull print is beautifully designed with flowers and butterflies. The t-shirt comes in two colors, costs £90.00 and is now available at Oki-ni.
Bigz, the owner of ACU, has just updated this blog with a teaser of what’s to come from the ACU camp. It seems like they will be working with Subcrew on a new mesh cap. Subcrew is known for their awesomeness in mesh cap making in the streetwear industry as many labels (even American ones) will seek out Subcrew in Hong Kong for cap production. The new mesh cap will have the famous “We are the Subcrew” motif but modified into “We ACU the Subcrew”. Doesn’t make sense at all but this hat will probably still sell.
Most guys would give up an arm or a leg to have Yone’s job. Who else in the world gets to shoot some of the sexiest Japanese models than Mr. Yonehara Yasumasa. Yone has just given a look at some upcoming plans for this month. Lately he has been working on two books which include Sneaker Lover and Warp Lover. Sneaker Lover will feature popular Japanese model Aki Hoshino (also known for her collaboration with Kiks TYO). Warp Lovers will be a book produced by Warp magazine where Yone has a monthly photo column called Tokyo Sweet. Anyway, these books will be coming out later this month so don’t miss out.
Oh and here’s a bonus video of the Yone x Ollie x 360VM shoot.
