PLEASURES Winter 2015 – With a heavy dose of punk, PLEASURES into the winter holiday season with a collection that is centered around youth. The wild range starts with edgy graphic T-shirts and quickly moves on to coaches jackets and heavy-duty work shirts. Along the way you’ll find an homage to artist and photographer Mike Kelley, and references to the old school media and compact discs. This visually experimental collection is available at select retail stores now.
GORE-TEX x Stussy – With a shape nearly identical to a traditional baseball cap the new strapback from Stussy is a technical beast. The lightweight headwear is built for the rain and made with GORE-TEX Paclite to be waterproof and incredibly durable. A minimal Stussy script logo adorns the crown, alongside a GORE-TEX tag. The hat is available in a clean navy blue, and retail is set at $70.
Nike Kobe 11 – The latest Kobe signature basketball shoe drops and looks like a near copy of the 9 and 10. However, when it comes to performance sneakers, the devil is in the details. The Flyknit upper has been updated with thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) threads for a sturdier and superior feet. Cushioning is provided by Lunarlon, and the heel is secured by a Zoom Air unit. Look for the first colorway to drop in early 2016, with plenty of subsequent colors to arrive throughout the NBA season.
Lexdray x TRJR – Lexdray’s knack for heavy-duty travel accessories has caught the attention of world-renowned drummer Tony Royster Jr. The talented artist has worked alongside Joe Jonas to Jay-Z, and the two team up on a limited edition drumstick bag with a percentage of sales directly funding Little Kids Rock, a national non-profit charity that provides instruments to kids in underserved public schools. The multi-media bag is made from premium and durable water-resistant nylon and isn’t limited to musical equipment. With one large pocket and a variety of compartments the bag has enough space for a 17-inch laptop, your camera, and a host of other items. Only 500 were produced, and are available in stores now.
Globe x Boombotix – The right tunes for a skate session is even easier now that Globe has begun working with Boombotix. The skate soft and hardgood company works with Boombotix to create the GSB Blazer and the GSB Pinner, two skateboards with Bluetooth speakers built in. Globe places a slim Bluetooth speaker by Boombotic toward the center of the deck that is rechargeable and capable of 6+ hours of continuous music.
Concepts x Canada Goose – The wet, cold weather in Boston makes Concepts experts when it comes to winter gear. The sneaker boutique team up with Canada Goose to unveil the Macmillan jacket in two colorways. Using 625 Fill White Duck Down, a three-way adjustable hood, coyote fur trim, and fleece-lined hand warmer pockets, this coat is ready for the most inclement weather. The Concepts logo comes down the sleeve to share space with a Canada Goose patch. Look for the coat to drop exclusively this weekend for $850.
PINTRILL x OBEY – PINTRILL is hitting some high notes this season, and after working with The Weeknd they have now moved on to OBEY. For the holiday season, a number of OBEY’s familiar designs can now be found across the silver-plated brass pin. A total of three pins make up the collection, with a specialty pack that will include all three.
adidas Tubular X Hemp – The Yeezy Boost 350 Tan hasn’t even dropped yet and it already has an imitator. The new Hemp-colored Tubular X uses a similar all tonal brown colorway that is reminiscent of Yeezy Season 1. The Tubular X has a high-cut shape and shares the same Yeezy Boost sole that makes a convincing argument for purchase. Skip the lines and get a pair that is pretty darn close.
