The interior will use the traditional red tartan lining, and the familiar umbrella back vent stays on the back.
Easy Too – Whether you can put Kanye West’s ego aside or not, there is no denying the fact that the man knows about branding. Kanye’s Yeezy has inspired backpacks in Japan and now its influence stretches to furniture. Look for the Yeezy’s textured heel to be used across a series of chairs by French product designer John Nouranesing. The chairs have been cleverly dubbed “Easy Too” and will arrive in three colors like the original Yeezy sneakers: Solar Red, Wolf Grey, and Red October.

Puma x Kasina – Kasina runs the streets of Seoul, and besides being just a retailer, it goes off on the collaborations. The latest is with PUMA for a new Disc silhouette and it is off the chain. Using the black, red, green similar to Midnight Marauders by A Tribe Called Quest the runner is an instant burst of color. Besides the bold colorway there is another more subtle beige and caramel version. Both pairs of Disc exude well thought out execution, and will add to any connection.
