Stussy’s 2008 spring/summer collection of shorts has hit select retailers. Ranging from classic and subdued joints to flashier usages of materials and prints, all tastes seem to be accounted for in this release. Also included in the release are designs created as part of the Futura x Destiny collection as well. Available now at Caliroots.

With design work coming from talented Taiwanese based artist Jahan, retailers Sense Organ Lab and Leftfoot have teamed up for this collaborative effort. A black t-shirt can be seen with a skull and bones and the names of both stores. The project marks the fledging Taiwanese market which has expanded rapidly in recent times.

Recently we had a post about the Wood Wood Temporary Space at Comme des Garcons Guerilla Store. Here are some actual pictures from the space. This Karl-Oskar Olsen and Brian SS design, as expected, uses lots of tape and vintage looking furniture for decorative designs; a lot of cardboard boxes were used for shelving and product display. The Wood Wood space is very unique from most other stores that use a sleek and high-end approach. Be sure to check out this space while you can.

Here we show you the sample pictures of the Nike Tennis Classic Pack, a collaboration between Fragment Design and Nike. These Tennis Classics all come in suede with three different solid colors: blue, gray, and maroon. Both logos are very subtle with the Swoosh cleverly perforated on the side of the shoes, and the Fragment Design logo quietly placed on the back heel. Another nice collaboration to drop later this year.
