OVO Winter/Fall 2015 – In a dark smoky corner of the new Drake One Fifty restaurant, the founding members of OVO and a few associates are decked in Supreme and Air Jordans discussing the future of their enterprise.

DRAKE:
We need a Holiday collection for OVO.

40:
Why don’t you take art from the new album, and just throw it on some stuff.

DRAKE:
Ok, guys. What if I took all those cool images from the latest album and embroider, print, or whatever it over hoodies, jerseys, and some flight jackets?

Pause. OLIVER and 40 look at each other, and then both look at Drake.

OLIVER and 40:
Brilliant! (With forced enthusiasm)

DRAKE:
Thank you. (Sheds tear)

Kyocera Hydro Wave – While most big-time smartphone makers have abandoned the idea of a waterproof device, budget-friendly Kyocera has picked up the torch. The Hydro Wave has inner hardware that protects it from dust, water, and the occasional drop. The 5-inch smartphone also has a quad HD display that works in a wet environment, and is powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of internal storage. Running Android 5.1, the Hydro Wave isn’t going to turn any heads, but it handles everything nicely and you can take it to the bath.

Vans x CLOT – When CLOT first kicked-off, all-over prints were all the rage. Their introduction to this trend came by teaming up with Japanese artist Madsaki for a print dubbed “Alienegra.” It’s been a hot minute since all-over prints have been in mainstream streetwear, and a good time for CLOT to bring it back. Using the thorny camouflage-style print in a greyscale color are the canvas uppers for a limited Vans’ Sk8-Hi and Classic Slip-On. A bit of a black suede accent blends nicely with the unique print and the matching black rubber toe bumpers. Look for this exclusive with Vans to drop soon along with a matching jacket and baseball cap.

From access to the Central Park logo to other municipal departments the collection blends skate culture with accessible popular culture.

Sony RX1R Mark II – Just as Canon creeps up with a respective premium point-and-shoot, Sony shows the industry who’s the top dog with the RX1R Mark II. Sony crammed a full-frame camera into the body of a pocketable RX1R Mark II, and at the center is the 42MP sensor. The handsome body is also paired with an equally impressive Carl Zeiss Sonnar 35mm f/2, a XGA OLED electronic viewfinder, and one of the fastest autofocus systems in the world. The level of sharpness for a camera of its size has never been seen, and prices start at $3,300.

New Balance x Burton – For all of those complaining about your snowboard boots, just know that the weight and stiffness are there so YOU DON’T BREAK YOUR ANKLES. The design is never going to be perfect, but New Balance and Burton wants to do something about it this season. The Boston sneaker giant and the leader in snow sports team up for a six piece collection that addresses style and comfort on and off the slopes. The boots are based off of Burton’s Ion (own a pair, they’re legit), while the sneakers are from New Balance’s 710. The collection is made for cold weather with treatment for rain, snow, and wind, but keeps it relatively minimalist to work just as well around the bars as sitting at the foot of your favorite mountain.
