Jack Spade for United Arrows – With its simple style and durable construction, Jack Spade has not only come out of Kate Spade’s shadow, but is now going to collaborate with one of Japan’s largest retail chains. United Arrows is tapping the New York based men’s accessories maker for a small collection that is set to debut this summer. Expect to see a clean and compact daypack in navy blue with gold hardware and leather accents. For those who need a something that is easier to carry, the collaboration will also yield a tote with premium tan leather handles. Both bags will use heavy-duty 16-oz canvas and constructed to develop a beautiful patina over time.

F.C.R.B. x Lifeproof – Protecting your smartphone with a case is standard knowledge, but for the accident prone, an exterior cover is just not enough. Lifeproof has built an entire business on creating a case that can resist nearly everything life can throw at it. The cases are normally plain and turns your sleek phone into something big and bulky, but fictional soccer team F.C.R.B. is looking to change that. The popular Japanese comic book takes their camouflage and applies it across four exclusive Lifeproof cases. The collaboration between Lifeproof and F.C.R.B. is available now, and available for about $120 usd.
Air Jordan 4 Teal – Michael Jordan didn’t win a championship with the 4, and the three and five are classics in their own right, but for me it’s always been the 4. First thing you notice are the wings around the laces to give it a more secure fit, and then Tinker throws in mesh at the quarter panels. The 4 was a bold sneaker, and this new teal colorway due out for 2015 is a nice addition to any collection. Using different hues of teal and green, the uppers are a combination of leather and nubuck, while the outsoles are white and black with a hint of teal at the heel. There isn’t much more information about this release except that it’ll be in stores early 2015.

This new point-and-shoot camera from Panasonic arrives with a huge lens from Leica that offers an aperture of F2.8-4.0 with a massive 25-400mm zoom.
