adidas Consortium 2008 April Releases

adidas’ premier Consortium releases for April have been released. The Consortium range seems to not really exude anything special for the month of April with some rather lackluster releases. Perhaps the lack of clear concise direction and concepts has been made apparent. adidas Consortium’s use of concepts was put on the back burner in a recent interview with adidas Consortium’s Dean Lokes as they decided to return to designing good colorways. We won’t jump to either side yet based on only a particular month’s releases, wait for another month to go by before these release. Source: High Snobiety

Not immune to the trends of hybrids, one of Converse’s biggest releases forth coming for the 100th Anniversary of the brand is the mash-up two of it’s perennial stars, the Weapon and the All Star. In some ways you can consider the All Star Weapon Leather a much slimmer version of the original Weapon, as it maintains relatively the same style of upper. Other releases include the All Star G&S originally issued at the 1960 Olympics and the WC, another Olympic release back in 1936. Source: Converse Japan

Most North American’s most likely won’t bat an eye at this recent Double Quarter Pounder promotion done by McDonalds Hong Kong in conjunction with Hong Kong lifestyle brand SiLLY THING, then again North American women don’t look like pre-adolescent boys either.

Futura x Beams T Tee

Beams T has teamed up with the well known artist, Futura, on two t-shirts and a cap. Even though we have seen a lot of Futura Laboratories items lately, we really like this collabo especially Futura tagging Beams T. There must be something magical about the way he writes or maybe its just that we’re bias. Anyhow, the items are now available at the Beams T store.
