BARNEYS NEW YORK x ETONIC STABLE BASE COLLECTION

etonic-barneys-new-york-collection-01

Etonic – everyone remember that name? Making a subtle return to the sneaker world for 2014, they started off strong, dropping a pretty legit 1-to-1 retro of the ‘Akeem the Dream’. Looking to roll with that momentum, Etonic has aligned with retailer megalith Barneys New York to bring back the fan-favourite Stable Base sneaker. Maintaing its heritage tooling, it’s an all nylon and suede affair with three all new introductory colours being presented for the November 1 exclusive release. Check out the range of views above, and if by chance you in the Big Apple, roll through Barneys to collect one or all of them.

KENZO Partners with Blue Marine Foundation on Limited Edition Tiger Sweater

Parisian fashion label KENZO have dipped their toes into some aquatic philanthropy, teaming up with UK conservation charity Blue Marine Foundation for a limited edition version of their ever-popular Tiger sweater. Raising funds and awareness for the protection of the fragile ecosystem surrounding the South Sandwich Islands (which lie in the Atlantic Ocean between Africa and South America for geographically-challenged Snobs), the sweater bears the label’s usual graphic embroidery, presented in a fittingly aquatic blue colorway and sporting Blue Marine Foundation’s logo on the sleeve.

The sweat is available now from Opening Ceremony, and if you’re feeling a sudden affinity for the natural world, why not check out some of the jaw-dropping entries to National Geographic’s 2014 Photo Contest while you’re at it?

A First Look at the Ace Hotel x Tokyobike Collaborative Bicycle

Following our in-depth interview with Ace Hotel’s Kelly Sawdon and Tokyobike’s Dean Di Simone, we present a first look at the duo’s collaborative bicycle. While we learned a ton about the bike’s backstory and how it came to be chatting with the two, specific details were scarce. Now, the bike in its entirety alongside the specifications have been revealed, giving the idea behind the project physical form.

Altogether, the bike arrives in two matte colorways which play on Ace Hotel Los Angeles’ color scheme. Appropriate for the laid-back Californian city, the bike is a single speed and comes equipped with Gropes leather grips, a Brooks saddle, a limited edition Nitto handlebar and a Wald back carrier. Check out the bike above and give it a whirl at your next visit to Ace Hotel Los Angeles.

Nike has taken design inspiration from the speed and strength of tennis athlete Rafael Nadal. The Nike Lunar Ballistec is lightweight and offers the wearer stability and durability when on the court. The bright Hyper Crimson colourway features black heels and white branding on the toes and tongue, resting on a cushy Lunarlon midsole.  Coloured up in a Pumpkin Orange colourway, these will look great on Halloween, and will serve you well on the courts well after that day in October. You can find these at Nike.com now.
