Just found this on Hypebeast
I'm taking a chance on this for sure. Started workin on this 2 days ago (once the kids are in bed, of course!!) and already got 2 good ideas sketched. I know i'm not alone to take a try at it, but I gotta do it. I just love ties too much, and it would be a great way to get known. I'll come back on this later if things go well.
Honestly, when I look at fashion, or even when I create, I don't really get impressed by classic ideas with new colors. What gets my attention is new forms, new shapes, specific details. This shoe is filled with details, from the brown inserts in the sole, to the hidden eyelets on the first part of the upper of the shoe. THAT IS FASHION. Stop reinventing the Stan Smith with new colors/patterns (I know, it's a classic, I own a pair, but you can't reinvent it forever!!)
For those who don't already know, Y-3 is an Adidas project, leaded by designer Yohji Yamamoto. You can learn more about the line on the Y-3 section of Adidas.com

I first heard this song from Kanye's "LV and Autotune 2" mixtape a couple weeks ago. I liked the sound, and now I like the look. Another nice vid by Hype Williams.

Just heard this on Fairtilizer. That led me to a couple of websites about the guy. He's been M.I.A.'s DJ on her 2005 tour. He's the head of Mad Decent Records. He's also involved in Major Lazer with fellow DJ Switch.

They are back.... Less clubby, more refinded... A lot of nice beats by Dj Figure8, Megasoid, Le Matos.... and a great collab with Beatrice aka Coeur de Pirate. Can't wait to see if the videos will be as hype as the ones from "Trop Banane!"... Go get it!
Here's an exemple of what they did on the last album....

"Les baskets sont à l’homme du XXIe siècle ce que le gilet multicolore était au dandy du XIXe, c’est-à-dire un signe distinctif, une signature personnelle."
(For you folks who don't speak French : Sneakers are, to the 21st century man, what multicolored jerseys where to the 19th century dandy; a distinctive sign, a signature.)
quote from DesignArtBook.com
oh, and btw, i personnally own a pair from Gola's previous collection (the Dodge in "pied-de-poule" material/black/red) ... real comfortable, great look, great assembly. Gotta own at least 1 pair in your collection.

I was lucky enough to get a "byte" of this from Ye's blog (I think the links don't work anymore). I've been listenin to this record every day for the last couple of days. Weezy is also on a couple of these tracks.
I like the cover, with the sneaker evolution...
