LG G5 – While everyone is hemming and hawing over Samsung’s S7, the smartphone that really caught my attention was from LG. The flagship G series was a disappointment last year when the G4 acted as only a minor cpu, camera, and software update to the G3. However, the new G5 proves that LG is serious about market share with some impressive improvements. From the modular function that allows users to attach a larger battery that also comes with physical camera controls. Sound is also hugely improved with a Hi-Fi DAC and a larger amplifier. In addition to these upgrades, LG stays true to the removable battery and a MicroSD slot for expanded memory.

SUPER x Gonz – With the distinction to work as both an artist and legendary skateboarder, Mark Gonzales has now become a part of the growing RETROSUPERFUTURE family. The eclectic style of the Gonz has been exhibited throughout a library of Supreme and adidas products, but this latest with the Italian sunglass makers takes a more fashion-forward twist. It’s no longer the whimsical graphics that take center stage—instead a pair of oversized unisex frames carved from Italian acetate and matched with transparent orange ZEISS lenses. The collaborative sunglasses are also marked with “Hello Gonz” and “Bye Bye Gonz” prints across the front. Look for the sunglasses to appear in stores now as part of the Spring and Summer campaign.
Travis Scott x Diamond – Merchandise for Rodeo blew off of the shelves, but there is still a chance of catching Travis Scott as the musical artist teams up with Diamond Supply Co.. This exclusive capsule collection is inspired by Scott’s latest LP and features a range of hoodies, graphic T-shirts, and snapbacks. Look for this co-branded products between Diamond and Scott to release exclusively at select PacSun locations, along with the Diamond flagship store.
MR PORTER x Common Projects – Blink and you’ll miss the slight changes made to these pair of Achillies lows for MR PORTER. The tennis sneaker has been the ubiquitous essential that has been recently elevated thanks to Common Projects’ attention to detail and adherence to premium materials. The strong number of followers for Common Projects’ simple style isn’t used to much deviation, and this is what makes this collaboration particularly interesting. This collaborative sneaker remains largely the same aside from two changes. The silhouette is the same, and materials stay unchanged, but the insoles are now black and the metallic gold print on the heel is finished in a glossy black.

Samsung Gear 360 – Anyone wondering the direction of virtual reality can look directly at the Samsung’s latest Gear 360 video camera. The camera has a simple spherical form that has two ultra-wide lenses on either side. By offering 195 – degree field of view and snapping 30 megapixel spherical photos the camera can piece together a sharp 3840×1920 view. The one weakness to this technology defining product is that it is limited to Samsung’s Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge.
