Nike has been innovating bringing out a ton of new models and collabs this year. This time the experimental NikeLab branch release the Zoom Fly Special Edition which is a homage to runner Eliud Kipchoge set a new world marathon record on the Formula 1 track at Monza. This served as the inspiration for the designer with various aspects of the shoe reflecting this breakthrough. Some of the key details include sketches on the sicklier, a digital cock graphic on the heel and a speed track icon on the inside of the tongue.

Intended to a fast and durable training shoe it includes an embedded full-length carbon-infused nylon plate, a 10mm offset, and a 3mm stack height. But most important these just look amazing in pics,the Zoom Fly SP is set to launch on June 8 at select NikeLab dealers.

It’s nice to see a collaboration that really takes in the design aesthetics of both companies without relying on hype to sell the shoe. Warm greys and beige tones on a sneaker that includes suede, mesh and leather. The sneaker is inspired by ’60s electronics of Dieter Rams.

The release of Alien Covenant this past week makes this an excellent time to reflect on the franchise as a whole. The original 1979 film directed by Ridley Scott single handedly came to define the space horror genre. While much has been made of H.R Giger’s alien designs, the film’s popularity and success largely hinges on its ability to pack immense detail into every scene. The original film utilizes set design, music, costumes and even custom typography to bring the world to life. The epic world building in the original set the standard for the entire franchise but today I want to take a closer look at the costume design in particular. The costumes and clothing seen throughout the franchise have had an immense impact on future sci-fi films and even the film industry as a whole. I’ll be breaking down the costume design of the original Alien trilogy below.

Wacko Maria is one of my favorite streetwear labels out of Japan and their latest capsule collection pays homage to music legend Lee Scratch Perry. One of the pioneers of dub , Lee “Scratch” Perry has worked with a who’s who of artists from Bob Marley to The Beastie Boys. The collection takes graphics from Perry’s album artwork and throws them on everything from tees to short sleeves. While many collabs end up being a simple co-branding exercise but capsule channels the energy of Lee Perry’s musical legacy. Look out for the pieces available through Japanese Wacko Maria stockists and online boutiques like END.

Nike ACG is set to release it’s Spring/Summer 2017 range tomorrow. I previously covered the 07 CMTR sneaker on this site, but now we get a better look at what else is in the range. Particularly of note is the packable ACG Poncho that comes in ripstop. Equipped with a hidden inner pocket, the is one of the more eye-catching items to drop. Another key piece are the ACG cargos. While past seasons saw cargos released, these are notable for their 6 pocket set-up and breathable side vents. To round out the collection there’s also a series of fleece items as well as a rain resistant button-down.

The collection releases this Thursday over at END.
