Wood Wood x Happy Socks

wood wood happy socks Wood Wood x Happy Socks

Sock-exclusive purveyors Happy Socks link up with Wood Wood to create a collection of socks. The Wood Wood influence results in a thin, light weight wool sock with a length coming in 2/3s shorter than the usual Happy Socks styles. The aesthetics of the socks are inspired by the cycling world and most notably Italy with green, white and red stripes. The word Corsa symbolizing the word “route” is a reference to something seen throughout various races in Italy. The socks are somewhat limited with only 1,000 pieces worldwide.

Prada 2009 Fall/Winter Campaign by Hedi Slimane

prada 2009 fw campaign hedi slimane 1 Prada 2009 Fall/Winter Campaign by Hedi Slimane

Sourcing out the photographic aesthetic of the multi-talented designer Hedi Slimane, Prada looks to the one time frontman of Dior Homme to convey the message for its 2009-2010 fall/winter campaign. In his trademark look, the style revolves around simple, black and white photos with black backdrops. With Slimane keeping busy on the photographic front, questions arise when he’ll make a return to the design world?

Supra NS 2009 Fall Collection

supra ns 2009 fall collection 1 Supra NS 2009 Fall Collection

Meant as an upper-scale version of its skate-centric main line, Supra NS brings to the table some of the same familiar silhouettes and models with obvious refinements. New materials are the defining point as we see the use of pony hair alongside other distressed uppers. Some models are currently available through Supra’s Factory413 online retailer.

Louis Vuitton Tambour Mysterieuse Watch

louis vuitton tambour mysterieuse watch Louis Vuitton Tambour Mysterieuse Watch

Perhaps not as well-known for its watch engineering as it is its fashion and luggage offerings, the new Louis Vuitton Tambour Mysterieuse watch makes a strong case for itself. Inspired by movements originally conceived by Jean-Eugene Robert Houdin back in the 19th century, Louis Vuitton’s appropriation carries on the legacy as the watch features on mobile sapphire discs which create a stunning visual arrangement between the mechanics and the markers around the dial. The watch is also fully customizable to the users preferences including parts of the strap and dial.
