Alexander McQueen Umbrella – The late great designer may have left the fashion world, but his penchant for skulls lives on through his brand. A new accessory for Alexander McQueen’s Spring and Summer collection is the simple black umbrella that is decorated with his signature skull for the handle. The skull is crafted from resin and comes in a bright bold blue. This certainly beats the umbrellas you find at CVS, but with its crazy high price you may be better off with CVS.

Unionmade x Golden Bear – Unionmade has found a partner for life through Golden Bear. It started with thick Melton wool varsity jackets, and has spread to Spring pieces like this “Ashton” blazer. The jacket is lightweight, but with both these companies located in San Francisco they have an appreciation for the slight chill that follows Spring. The jacket is lined with a cotton and flax chambray lining to give it an extra layer of warmth, but the cotton twill outer ensures that the blazer is still fairly light. The “Ashton” blazer may be a bit much for the sunny days of SoCal, but for the rest of the world it’s near perfect.
Saucony x Anteater – We don’t hear too much about Russian brands in streetwear. But, they do exist. In fact Saucony is teaming up with Russian brand Anteater for the third time. Look for the two to rework the Jazz Original silhouette. The classic runner is updated with heavy color blocking on the suede uppers. The birght blue acts as the sea while the tab across the front toes is the sand. The vintage sneaker is completed with a white midsole and a gum outsole. Look for this exclusive edition of the Saucony to be availalbe around the end of the month.
LG “Artcool Stylist Inverter V” – In the world of teeny-tiny apartments “central air” is rarely a part of the lexicon. Most of the time you have a big boxy unit that hangs out of a window, but LG is looking to change that. They take inspiration from decorative art pieces when they created the “Artcool Stylist Inverter V.” This air conditioning unit is ridiculously thin, and measures only 5 inches. It has subtle LEDs to indicate when it is powered on, and comes with a convenient remote control. The “Artcool” gets you one step closer to living like The Jetsons, and will be available later this month.
Stussy x Champion – Back in the olden times, before globalization and factories in China, clothes needed to last. Champion built itself a reputation with their reverse weave construction. Instead of running the grain of the fabric vertically, it was run sideways; making it more durable and less likely to shrink. This age old technology is being adopted by Stussy as the release a handful of T-shirts, and shorts. The T-shirts will feature a camouflage patterned Stussy logo, and the shorts come in two different all-over camo prints to choose from. Look for the subtle Champion branding to complement the Stussy handstyles.
