The Japanese label, Tilt, is rarely heard of in the States but in Japan, they’re known for their studded belts and bracelets. Recently Stussy Japan has recently teamed up with Tilt for a leather Studded belt and bracelet. Made with 100% leather, the belt will go for 19,740 Yen while the bracelet will go for 8,190 Yen. These limited items are now available at Stussy Japan stores. No word if they’re going to make it to the States though.
“Back to basic” is the theme of this year in streetwear. Everyone’s ditching their all over prints and going back to plain simple colors. If you’re feeling that steez but don’t want to sacrifice all colors, this shoe might be for you. These simple Nike Air Max Lights has just recently been released. The colorway of white/red/grey isn’t all too crazy. Sporty yet elegant, these are now available at Atmos Tokyo.
The magazine Sneaker Freaker, founded by Simon Wood aka. Woody has been around for quite a while. This year they have released their 11th issue of the magazine but that’s not all they’re going to release. It looks like there will be a collaboration sneaker in the works with Puma which you might have already seen on the cover of Sneaker Freaker issue #11. Now, thanks to Guillotine, here’s a better picture of the shoe which is dubbed “Blaze of Glory”. There is currently no word on release date yet but hopefully we can see these in stores soon.
Also at the Bread and Butter Show that’s taking place in Barcelona right now, the English brand Addict will be doing some crazy collaborations with OG street brands like XLarge, Freshjive, and Fuct. What they have done is take original designs from XLarge, Freshjive and Fuct and modified it with either the Addict logo some camo. We’re guessing that these will be dropping in Fall ‘08.
Last year, Staple from New York collaborated with Gravis on the Black Box Collection which included shoes and hats. Now it looks like The Hundreds were picked to work on this collaboration this year which was revealed at the Bread & Butter Barcelona tradeshow. New items will include two sneakers as well as a luggage collection. The Hundred’s signature grass camo and Adam Bomb will be featured on most of these collaboration pieces. Look for these items to come out later this year.
