Woolrich Woolen Mills Fall/Winter 2011 Collection Presentation


Woolrich Woolen Mills presents Fall/Winter 2011 Collection which was designed by famed designer Mark McNairy. The line still takes its roots from workwear but for 2011 adds a refinement that makes it appropriate for multiple venues.

“Woolrich Woolen Mills created a military style mess hall in the Galeria Lorenzelli to complement the military influences on the collection. Designed by Francesca Sarti of Arabeschi di Lalle, a Milan based food designer, all of the food and drink under the tent was made with local ingredients and carried information on the carbon output necessary to make the food, allowing the presentations attendees to calculate their meals carbon footprint rather than caloric value.”

Dr. Dre Detox: 4:20 Release Date?

Super Producer Just Blaze met with Dr. Dre where a date of 4/20 is set for the release of Detox. This album has been years in the making so waiting til April 20 will have to do. My only question is, when did albums start getting released on Wednesdays?

New Balance Introduces the 1574 Sneaker

From a heritage steeped in running glory the new 1574 emerges. Rematerialized in structural mesh and subtle embossed leathers, the 1574 is an unflinchingly angular interpretation of the 574.

The 1574 has a new outsole reminiscent of another New Balance running icon: the smooth riding 1500. Look for equally stunning aesthetic treatments like sonically fused uppers, embossed full grain leather and reflective structural mesh. High frequency and pressure are applied to precisely fuse the panels of the upper. The resulting seam is airtight, watertight and nearly invisible. Stylishly simple as well as revolutionary: Sonic assembly requires about half the upper material and reduces carbon footprint.

The New Balance 1574 debuts for men in Spring 2011 at Finish Line with Leather retailing at $85 (Grey, Black) and Suede/Mesh at $95 (Grey, Black).
