To celebrate Halloween, we would like to take this opportunity to introduce our new monthly series of illustrated outfits with Andrew Mashanov. Here is the first, it’s sort of tongue in cheek for the holiday… we’re calling it “How to Dress for a Bank Robbery.” Inspired in-part by the 1995 film Heat, this illustrated outfit includes a J.Crew Ludlow two-piece suit, premium button-down shirt, Nike Roshe Runs, surgical gloves (of course), Pelle Lindbergh vintage hockey mask, an M4 and a cozy pair of Etiquette x Le Berlinois Camouflage Cashmere Socks.

Founded in 1853, Levi Strauss & Co.has spent over a century being recognized as the originator of the iconic blue jean, a creation that stemmed from founder Levi Strauss’ patent to create the first riveted men’s work pants out of denim. Following the success of these blue jeans, Levi’s® has been able to branch out into a variety of different markets, enabling them to produce the world’s most popular denim style — the 501® — while simultaneously perfecting the Trucker Jacket and Western Shirt, two of the brand’s most iconic items. Celebrating all three classic designs, we teamed up with Levi’s® to produce an illustrated take on these timeless garments, with a description of each below.
Levi’s® Trucker Jacket
The Trucker fit is Levi’s® most universal denim jacket fit for guys. The silhouette is straight on the body with armholes and sleeves designed for maximum mobility and comfort, featuring welt pockets that offer style and functionality. It’s led the pack since 1962, and still remains an icon of American cool.
Since introducing its iconic riveted denim jean over a century ago, Levi’s® has periodically tweaked the fit, fabric and features of the 501® Jean to suit the needs and preferences of the modern worker. Although often times subtle and only apparent to the discerning eye, the differences between the Historic 501® Jeans help tell the story of the Levi’s® brand and the ever-evolving landscape of the American frontier.
Levi’s® Western Shirt
The classic Western shirt has come a long way from the ranch. Made modern for today in a slimmer fit, with original western yoke details and snap-pockets—it still remains a standard of rugged American culture.

Built from the inside out, the Nike LEBRON 11 is the lightest and lowest LeBron signature shoe ever. The upper is built in a new way, featuring revolutionary Nike Hyperposite technology for lightweight lock-down, while taking protection, containment and responsiveness to a new level. The shoe also incorporates Nike Hyperfuse construction and dynamic Flywire technology to bring natural motion to James’s game. Deconstructed, the design is equipped to get James’s foot much lower to the ground so he can feel the court, while enhancing cushioning via the full length Lunarlon and Nike Zoom unit – a combination featured for the first time in a LeBron signature shoe. With an official release set for next month, we were provided an opportunity to get our hands on LeBron James’ 11th signature shoe a bit ahead of schedule. Taking the kicks on court for a little testing session we decided to take a different approach to our IN MOTION series and provide a still version of the feature, with a little illustrated assistance. Below are some key details of this marvelous new creation from Nike Basketball.
Nike Hyperposite Technology – Uses lightweight materials designed to move with the foot to provide protection, containment and responsiveness.
Nike Hyperfuse & Dynamic Flywire Technology – Provides a dynamic fit and excellent lockdown, bringing natural motion to the court.
Nike Lunarlon & Zoom Air Units – For soft, springy responsiveness.
Graphic Design Cues – The duality of the number 11 is the main graphic design inspiration for the LEBRON 11 – it looks identical upside down as it does right side up. The graphic design on the LEBRON 11 also plays into the duality of the shoe and features ambigrams throughout including the graphic on the inner tongue of the shoe spells out the number six while further highlighting the Roman numeral XI. The sock liner graphic reads “LeBron” but when flipped upside down reads “James”. A closer look at the Swoosh on the shoe reveals a pattern inspired by modern chain mail in which the initials “LJ” make up the links and repeat at graduating weights.
King’s Pride Colorway – James plays with fearlessness, determination and the heart of a lion. The King’s Pride colorway draws inspiration from the lion – its dark loden upper color and the floral print on the collar lining reflect the pride of the wildlife.
The LEBRON 11 King’s Pride will be available at select Nike retailers globally on October 12, 2013.

Once again we worked with filmmaker Kippenberger on a new car focussed story. This time we traveled all the way to Canada to produce a film around the all new Mercedes-Benz S-Class for the mb! by Mercedes-Benz online magazine. The new flagship model of the German car maker is as impressive as ever, setting new standards in terms of luxury and elegance.
Taking a bit of a different approach, we produced more of a conceptual visual, with the new S-Class being the main actor. The beautiful Canadian scenery perfectly complemented the car and provided a great backdrop for our production.
To spice things up further, we involved illustrator extra-ordinaire Olka Osadzinska, who we have previously worked with already. She produced a series of pop-culture illustrations that were inspired by our short film.
You can watch the film now here.
