Located within Fukuoka’s Dice&Dice building, the Futura Laboratories Shop has held it down as an obvious choice as the best place for FL related gear. The Map Pointman collection utilizes Futura’s iconic Pointman with a print of the city of Fukuoka seen within. Aside from the FL Shop location, other local spots and attractions can also be seen.

Spanning both casual and higher end offerings, Japanese brand Rhythm has made a note of it to create aesthetically simple designs. Last season saw their talents recognized on various levels as stores set out to work together with the Japanese brand on a series of collaborations. A look at their 2008 Spring/Summer collection continues on with their collection of sneakers each named after various food items.
We have previously seen the 1000% Fendi Bearbricks which were produced for VIP members of Fendi only. If you missed out on that, you can check it out here. However, nothing compares in size to this really huge Bearbrick which stands in one of the Fendi stores in Paris. You probably won’t be able to purchase this as this is probably a store display. So for now, all we can do is just look at the pictures and drool.
Update: There is apparently one of these at the 5th Avenue Fendi store in Manhattan, New York as well. (Thanks Matthew!)
