It’s All About The Memories

It arrived in the mail today from France, and a wave of nostalgia waved over me while ripping off the plastic wrapping as a distinct scent hit my nostrils.  The scent immediately reminded me of fresh new yearbooks at the end of the school year.  Back then I couldn’t wait to flip through those pages containing all the greatest memories of the year, and I certainly didn’t wait to jump into “All Gone: The Finest of Street Culture 2012″ today.

Just like our yearbooks, “All Gone” features something for every stereotype in school plus so much more!

Now there’s no way I would ever be able to acquire everything in this book just like I don’t talk to about 90% of my high school friends, but years from now I know I’ll enjoy flipping through memories.  Now if I could just get all the designers/collaborators/artists to sign my All Gone yearbook!

Red book limited to 750 copies and already sold out online.  Black limited to 1250 copies and can still be purchased here.

2012’s All Gone

20130104-013045.jpg

“All Gone: The Finest of Street Culture 2012″ slated to release late January.
Despite hours of waiting in line, paying way over retail, and knowing the right people you know there’s gotta be at least a few (or in my case a lot of) exclusive and limited edition items you’ve missed out on the past year. Lucky for us we can now have them all on carefully curated pages sitting on our coffee tables. Of course the book is limited too and has sold out for the past 7 years, so don’t sleep!

Available at colette January 19 for a special book signing and other specialty retailers TBA

Happy PS13!

I’m seriously feening for all of these, especially the PS11 Hologram which of course has been sold out.  I don’t currently own any Proenza bags, but I think I’m gonna make it one of my new year’s resolutions to acquire one this year.  Dunno why I’ve waited so long.

Zoom Kobe 8

Every Christmas for the past few seasons, the new Nike Zoom Kobe Bryant Signature Shoe has officially debuted on Christmas Day.  The NBA has Christmas games all day now,  however, back then they only featured one or two games.  With the Lakers being one of the marquee teams in the NBA, and even in worldwide sports, they play 99.9999% of the time on Xmas.  And with us being LA Laker homers, we had to feature this years Kobe XMas edition.  As with the previous four signature Kobe shoes, two pairs release at Xmas.  One is a blk/yellow colorway that sees a general release, while there is the more limited wacky XMas themed shoe Kobe will wear for the Xmas game.  Of course we’ll show you the more “limited” colorway!  The new model comes in at svelte 9.6 oz (which rivals the weight for running shoes).  The shoe features an interchangeable Lunarlon insole, with an upper made of engineered mesh.  The XMas edition comes with an upper that has been “inspired” by Christmas Lights!  They drop XMas morning at select online retailers and Nike accounts..  Don’t blink, because these will be gone in seconds!KOBE_8_Sketch2_detail KOBE_8_Sketch3_detail nike-kobe-8-christmas-02-570x378 nike-kobe-8-christmas-05-570x378 nike-kobe-8-christmas-08-570x378 nike-kobe-8-system-christmas

A Shot In The Dark

‘Tis the season for holiday party hopping. Whether it be with coworkers, family, or friends good times are guaranteed, but so is a little (or a lot of) drama. You know you want to have a good time, but let’s be serious you don’t want your boss or religious Aunt Remy seeing you down that second martini and thinking you’re a lush.
What better way to secretly take the edge off than Cynthia Rowley’s Flask Bangle! How simply genius/gorgeous is this???

One question remains… How many vodka filled bangles can you wear per wrist before you can’t lift your arms?
