STUSSY & THE HEARTBREAKERS 2012 Fall/Winter “East Meets West” Lookbook

STUSSY & THE HEARTBREAKERS 2012 Fall/Winter “East Meets West” Lookbook

In a collision of the Eastern and Western styles of the ’80s and ’90s, Stussy and Masafumi Watanabe’s BEDWIN & THE HEARTBREAKERS present the “East Meets West” lookbook for their collaborative Fall/Winter 2012 capsule collection. First previewed in the second issue of Hypebeast Magazine, the new capsule includes two distinct sub-collections, dubbed “Orchard Street” and “SoHo Nights.” “Orchard Street” exudes the artistic, bohemian vibe of the daytime downtown Manhattan scene of decades past while the “SoHo Nights” pieces come inspired by New York City’s appropriation of tailored and sophisticated Tokyo style – a staple of Big Apple nightlife. Juxtaposing baggy pocket tees, lightweight trousers and bucket hats with the likes of button-downs, denim, a varsity jacket, blazer and fedora, the collection also includes accessories like sunglasses, a tie and pocket square. The entirety of the STUSSY & THE HEARTBREAKERS Fall/Winter 2012 capsule collection is now available at all Stussy chapter stores and online.

A Tribe Called Quest x Applebum “Beats, Rhymes & Life – The Travels of A Tribe Called Quest” T-shirt

A Tribe Called Quest x Applebum “Beats, Rhymes & Life – The Travels of A Tribe Called Quest” T-shirt

To commemorate the release of the documentary “Beats, Rhymes & Life – The Travels of A Tribe Called Quest,” A Tribe Called Quest hooked up with Japanese brand Applebum for a special T-shirt. Deriving its name from the group’s first single “Bonita Applebum” off their debut album, Applebum was a natural choice for this special piece. The tee features a bright red and green camo-esque print made famous by the group’s signature usage of the pattern punctuated by a bold, white graphic with the name of the documentary across the front. Just 20 of these special tees have been produced and rather than being sold they are being offered up in a giveaway on the brand’s site. Unfortunately the giveaway is limited to residents of Japan.

Full on Porsche Porn With the Full Release of Urban Outlaw

Having first released a short three minute film seen here earlier in the year, the team behind Urban Outlaw is back with a new feature film. Still following Magnus Walker, the Porsche-obsessive who made his millions starting clothing line “Serious,” the film features Walker’s incredible collection of classic Porsches.

Lexus LF-LC Blue

Lexus LF-LC Blue

At the Australian Motor Show Lexus has unveiled the latest iteration of its LF-LC concept car, this one dubbed the LF-LC Blue. Powered by a hybrid drivetrain, the car combines a gas engine, an electric motor and an “advanced high-energy battery pack” to generate 500 horsepower. A look into the Japanese firm’s design direction, this concept boasts a dramatic front grill and taut, angular bodywork and incorporates cutting edge technology such as a 12.3 inch LCD screen operated by a smaller touchscreen control for the driver. If this is any indication of Lexus’ future it looks to be a bright one indeed.

Alicia Keys – Girl On Fire

Charming as always, Alicia Keys always sends out the colorful visual for the title track of her upcoming album Girl On Fire. Ms. Keys keeps it domestic in her “powerful, sultry and fun” video. The colors heat up when the clip displays her as a super-mom, helping children through cooking and homework, and then tuning out her man to listen to her headphones. Girl On Fire is due November 27 on RCA.

Nike SB Eric Koston 1 Black/Sunburst-Atomic Green

Though we just got a glimpse of the Nike Eric Koston 2, this new colorway of the Nike SB Eric Koston 1 reminds us why it remains a favorite. Black covers the suede upper and mesh tongue, but the supreme skate shoe is brought to life by a sunburst colored midsole and vibrant atomic green outsole. Balance is restored with dark grey branding and tongue adornments. This Eric Koston 1 is available now at select Nike SB retailers, including Flatspot.
