Originally conceived in 1986, Zucca by Japanese designer Akira Onozuka has teamed up with jewelery makers Jam Home Made on a coated necklace. The white necklace features miniature skulls spaced evenly along the links.
Mastermind Japan has followed in the footsteps of every other Japanese brand to create their collection of G-Shocks. In a predictable collabo of sorts, the watch is black in color with skulls on the dial. Both a DW-5600 and DW-6900 will release in a set on Valentines Day.

Something touched upon previously in an interview with A-Ron (formerly of aNYthing) by Heron Preston was a new space in Soho dedicated to a wealth of different activities. The 5,800 square foot Wreck Center will serve as a storefront, area for performances, art gallery and straight up place to chill out. The space will only be around until the end of February when the wrecking ball comes through to tear the place down. Until then, if you’re cool enough, A-ron will be in contact with an invite.

Back in 2003, a small group of rogue individuals felt the need to create a special ops team with a greener approach to sneaker construction. It’s no doubt that their feelings expressed upon the creation of the Considered team back in 2003 would echo sentiments breaking airwaves in alarming frequency these days regarding green methods of production in the market place. They set forth some guidelines in which each piece of Considered footwear must follow such as the necessity to use recyclable materials in production, no uses of toxic materials, using mechanics and engineering as opposed to chemical solutions and lastly closed loop technology (meaning the sneaker can be remade into another sneaker without going to waste). Among the individuals holding a role within the Considered team was Jeff Staple who offered a creative timeline for their collection ultimately culminating with the production of the (Considered) Air Jordan XX3.
