Apple iPhone 7 – After two long years of development, the iPhone 7 was finally announced today—and it looks just like the current iPhone that’s probably in your pocket right now. While the shape and silhouette are largely the same their are a host of improvements. Both the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will arrive with a 12-megapixel camera with optical image stabilization and a larger f/1.8 aperture along with a 6-element lens for brighter, more detailed photos and videos. The iPhone 7 Plus offers a second telephoto camera that works with the first to offer twice the optical room and a ten time digital zoom. What is also surprising is that Apple has finally dumped the entry level 16GB model—starting things off at 32GB, 28GB, and 256GB.
LIFUL Fall/Winter 2016 Drop 2 – Korean pop-stars are always caught repping BAPE and Supreme, but they have some strong streetwear brands as well—courtesy of companies like LIFUL.

In lieu of the T-shirts and shorts enjoyed in the spring and summer, those warm weather staples are replaced by elongated trench coats, oversized cardigans, tapered shirts, and graphic hoodies.

These exclusive Air Prestos are set to release tomorrow, September 8, in Berlin, Germany.
Outlier Co/Weight Hoodie – Hoodie is known for keeping things minimal and that usually means light and breathable. However, with the cooling temperatures and weather change, Outlier has lined up a hoodie with a bit of heft. The new Co/Weight Hoodie is a blend of terry knit for a smooth matte outer, but an interior made from soft merino wool. With two different textiles the hoodie is a natural temperature regulator and will arrive with both a zipper and pullover style.

Nike x Stone Island – One of the oddest collaborations this season has to be the one between Nike and Stone Island. Both are timeless companies, but each is on different ends of the price spectrum. It’s not unusual to spot windbreakers from Stone Island that retail over $500, so imagine one with a Nike swoosh. Nike has their classic Windrunner jacket made with the same Hyper Light Membrana and Membrana 3L TC that Stone Island use on their high-end technical jackets. In addition to the upgraded material the jackets are packable and come with a neat little co-branded label.
