The Award Tour presents it’s Holiday Collection in the form of “The Private Rebellion.” Drawing inspiration from classic Ivy League culture, the brand presents a mature and fresh assortment of shirts, crew-neck sweaters, hoodies, and knit beanies. Taking advantage of a collaboration with past Hypebeast contributor in photographer Devin Christopher, the new collection of clothing is presented in fittingly dramatic fashion on campus at Princeton University. The brand is dedicated to creating clothing for those who live every moment of life to its fullest potential. One glance at the antics on the Award Tour blog and it becomes clear that they follow their own brand initiatives. Based out of New Jersey, The Award Tour is in it’s second year of existence and has seen enormous growth since its introduction. The products are available world wide online and through select retailers viewable on The Award Tour website.
Mitchell & Ness and Californian retailer Comissary have linked up on a series of fitted caps. Known predominately for their attention to throwback releases, Mitchell & Ness have been branching out more and more to include hat team-ups with select brands and stores. The caps feature some of Commissary’s known icons and logos including the executioner graphic. A total of three caps are available starting next week at Commissary’s two locations.
I ain't even on fitteds like that but I respect this fresh!!! You should too..
Mishka NYC keeps you always guessing with their 2009 calendar shot by Ellen Stagg. Ellen Stagg has risen to prominence for her erotic photography involving both herself and others. The shoot was inspired by classic pin-up girl calendars seen in garages and features models such as Joanna Angel, Jelena Jensen and Justine Joli (upon a quick Googling, they’re all predominately porn stars). As a further accompaniment, each pin-up also includes a comic done by Jon Vermilyea who has been a regular mainstay for both Mishka and VICE magazine. Mishka also create a special t-shirt to go alongside the calendar. Both the calendar ($30 USD) and t-shirt ($32 USD) have begun shipping and when purchased together will retail for $50 USD.
Hypebeast: "Catching up with colette’s creative director and buyer Sarah Lerfel, the International Herald Tribune gives us a closer look into the Wonderwall re-designed Parisian retail front. Not only did they re-introduce to upscale boutique to the fashion forward city of Paris, but give their visitors a treat with their excellent choice of designers an newly renovated sneakers selection. Check it out!"
