Stone Island Shadow Project provides a video accompaniment to it’s Fall Winter 2016 collection. The production quickly cycles through the different looks featuring sweaters, hoodies, tees, jumpers and technical hard-shells. The video quickly flashes through the elements and provides a closer look at some of the innovative details/features on various garments. Perhaps trailblazer sci-fi author William Gibson described this clip best in his tweet “That Stone Island Shadow Project video that @erlsn just tweeted is as Neuromancery as anything I’ve seen”.
Arco Maher has a ton of Stone Island. The collection spans over 160 pieces. Dazed put together a short clip to showcase some of his best pieces.

The visual is accompanied by a soundtrack by by Jesse James Solomon, whose other work can be heard here. If you’re a fan of the Italian sportswear label, consider this a must watch.
Ghost in the Shell is one of my favorite animated movies ever. The cyberpunk thriller is filled with so many immersive elements from the incredible music to it’s unique art direction. One of the elements that made the film stand out so much was it’s incredible attention to detail when it comes to the landscapes and architecture in the film. Many shots, drawings, and stills from the film part of a new exhibition “Anime Architecture,” now on view at Berlin’s Museum for Architectural Drawing.

Today marks the release of Endgame’s new Savage EP under PTP. The London based producer gets some assistance with this remix from producer Yung Sherman. The remix of XOX is flipped and given visual accompaniment through an incredible video that borrows scenes from anime Patlabor 2 directed by legendary anime auteur Mamoru Oshii.
Levi’s is a brand that needs no introduction. As the worldwide leaders in denim, they need no introduction. The team over at Heddels visited the Levi’s Archive Vault in San Francisco.
The Levi’s archives there house thousands of items from the brand’s nearly 150 year history including jeans and apparel, marketing materials, textile samples, packaging, promotional items, and much more. The red tab’s reproduction line, Levi’s Vintage Clothing, draws upon numerous vintage pieces in the archive to make their seasonal collection. Heddel’s explored the design office and archives to preview the current Spring/Summer 16 line that takes inspiration from the Levi’s company baseball team, “Elesco” (a phonetic pronunciation of “L.S.&Co.”). Elesco games date back to 1886, and Senior Designer Paul O’Neill based this collection upon a single photograph of the company team from 1913.
The motivation to run comes from within. Sometimes it is just your music and the road that keeps you focused on the next step. There’s something very reassuring about seeing the landscape fall away after traveling for miles on foot. For Cory Wharton-Malcolm, who started running ten years ago and is now lead coach of the Nike+ Run Club in London (and founder of TrackMafia), it was this self-motivation that led him to work his way up to running his first marathon. In this this short film, directed by David Ryle , he shares his scenic running route and his internal monologue while doing so. His sneaker of choice for the journey is the new LunarFly Epic Trainer.

The 24/7 media landscape is shrinking the world of music and culture. What that means for artists is that their fans can literally be anywhere in the world. Grime made big strides internationally last year with the likes of Skepta finally breaking through internationally in a big way.
Nigo is no stranger to finding stars within subculture and collaborating with them to mix cultures and influences.

This short doc follows Stromzy as he describes his ascent from South London to making his first trip out to Japan.
The collective behind EYES&SINS has created a new video showcasing some of the current Guerrilla Group gear. PTP head honcho GENG provides the soundscape for this atmospheric visual.

C.E brings new light to it’s spring/summer 2016 collection with an eye-catching video shot using 4k drone footage. The clip is voyeuristic in nature and pieces together aerial shots and surveillance type camera work. The soundtrack sounds like it’s straight out of a black mirror episode and the fast paced editing is a good accompaniment to the layered collage graphics often employed by the brand.
