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.
