Reebok Freestyle Music Evolution Collection

Fresh off their recent collaboration efforts for various Freestyle model projects, Reebok kicks it into another gear for the ladies with the recent unveiling of the new Music Revolution pack releasing sometime this June. With a fusion of Punk Rock and Hip-Hop inspired motifs, this collection consists of 3 different colorways. Both rock styles feature classic leather and suede uppers along with much flashier patent leather straps, 80’s black and white prints and not to mention a creative silver chain link feature. On the other hand, the hip-hop version combines a black base with a very nice array of brighter colors, very reminiscent of ’90’s hip-hop streetwear. Both military green and white versions are expected to drop in June, while the black version is set for an October 2008 release. Source: Trashbag Aesthetics

"The Life is Beautiful" The Art of Mr. Brainwash

"The Life is Beautiful" The Art of Mr. Brainwash

While his original intentions were to document the world of graffiti, over this 9 year period, slowly but surely Mr. Brainwash went from careful observer to participant. Trading in his camera for stickers, he has gone full blown from his first works which included hand drawn stickers to giant billboard sized paste-ups turning him into a prolific Cali street artist. Much like popular cultural commentators of our time, Mr. Brainwash turns iconic pieces into his own statements. In his first exhibition “The Life is Beautiful”, Mr. Brainwash will showcase 300 paintings, sculptures and prints including an installation including 100,000 pairs of shoes. Life is Beautiful Opening Reception Wednesday, June 18th 7:00 pm CBS Studios Sunset and Gower, Hollywood.

The first deck seen after the jump is the Calculus deck. A monogram of math symbols can be seen. Among their future releases is the Stacks skate deck which despite the 2D nature of photographs in general provides an interesting perspective. Available this holiday 2008.
