Brought together by common interests such as skating, a special union has involved legendary skate graphic artist Jim Phillips and clothing labels Magic Number and In4mation, who together have created a limited edition t-shirt. The design features Jim Phillips’ Skateboarding Gremlin in a new colorway and outfitted with logos from each respective brand. The t-shirt is available exclusively at STLESS.
While some relish at the opportunity to cash on a Banksy piece done up on their property, others are frankly not buying into the hype. Case in point, as a New York shop owner painted over an entire wall that was filled with graffiti. Albeit, the Banksy piece seen on his wall was sharing a spot with a few other artists, at the rate various Banksy pieces have been going on the market there’s a lot you could do with a piece from the famous street artist.
In4mation and skate legend Sal Barbier recently spear headed a movement to bring back Barbier’s 1993 classic, the SLB23. The new 2008 model undergoes a thorough run down from Sal in a video seen over at Etnies, including all new updated design aspects to make the shoe more relevant in a time where shoes are getting more compact. Still no word yet on a release date for these joints.
