The latest home accessory from this Japanese brand is a set of rubber PVC coasters that feature the ape silhouette on one side, and a tonal BAPE camouflage on the other. Each set comes with three coasters and retails for $15, or about the cost of a cocktail in Los Angeles.
BEAUTY & YOUTH UNITED ARROWS x Stussy – To celebrate their 25th anniversary this coming April Japanese brand BEAUTY & YOUTH UNITED ARROWS teams up with long standing streetwear brand Stussy.

The two brands have worked on T-shirts and Vans before, and this upcoming season has Comme des Garcons offering their shirting material for a set of classic skate Vans. Look for two different colorways of “The Era” that use a combination of white polka dot and stripe textile. A special “Sk8-Hi” is also available with a print that pays tribute to New York skate legend Harold Hunter. The collection is set to drop later in the season.
FUCT Spring/Summer 2014 -FUCT heads into Spring and Summer 2014 with a special lookbook devised from a recent trip to Russia.

The models are typical Moscovites wearing the latest T-shirts, and accessories. It’s always cool to see American streetwear taken up in a different part of the world. The graphics are typical of FUCT, and while long-term fans will be content, it might not be enough to impress new fans.
