With tomorrow marking 2008’s Ching Ming festival, adidas has played to its large Asian contingency and backing to produce a Superstar inspired by a festival meant to mark the spring bloom and the remembering of ancestors. The box set includes a card with information and special packaging. No word on whether this will be an Asian/China exclusive.

Moncler never ceases to amaze. Their 2008 Fall/Winter is one of the best to date, and anyone that copped the Junya collabo collection from this winter is a king. Here are some pieces we are less used to seeing from Moncler, bachelor ski instructors still need to look good in the off season. The blazer/zip/buckle combo is amazing. The “Chamoise” piece is something else and should not be described until worn in person. Yes the swimming trunks are short, but they are intended for a different lifestyle. The French stripes are aesthetically pleasing. We are fully committed to only the most current news, but there are two Junya/eye/CDG pieces from the beginning of 2008 mixed in, see if you can spot it.
Here are some new pieces from Red Wing Japan. We’ve also included some oldies but goodies. Classics never get old, especially when you revive them in dope colorways and materials. This 103 year old company rarely needs to update their designs, and I’m sure you could wear them for another century and still be fresh.
iGoogle is one of the best ways to organize and create a homepage. ZOZO recently re-launched their ZOZOGALLERY, with it they released, Artist iGoogle Museum, which is a collection of iGoogle themes to customize your homepage. The themes include work done my Nigo (Bathing Ape), Osamu Tezuka (Astro Boy) and Nobuhiko Kitamura (Hysteric Glamour) amongst others.
The Rugged Museum has updated with some new merchandise on their site. We also came across some dope picturesof their location, transporting you back in time to a place where everything was made of raw materials like iron and wood. Their inspiration again is the glory years of the 40’s and 50’s. Like in the case of Red Wing, we see models that have stood the test of time, and we can learn about other garments with humble military beginnings. It’s not all about MA-1s and M-65s here, we see a lot of Navy wear, Gentleman’s hunting pieces, and a lot of reference to Steve McQueen, a true OG. Steve can be seen wearing a variant of the MA-1 in “The Great Escape” and his cut-off raglan sweats. The boundaries between fashion and collector’s items have been rubbed out, and we take for granted the quality and style of pre-hiphop America. Check out pics of the the revival of the good old days after the jump.
