Gosha staged his runway presentation in one of Russia’s first ever rave venues. That theme carries through to the whole collection with looks based around the personal style of 90’s Ravers. In addition to the usual streetwear staples that we’ve come to known from the label, the collection also includes Track jackets and oversized jersey by way of the season’s Adidas collab. The fit this time around is much baggier, with a focus on bright patel colors and even tie-dye pieces.

Wacko Maria has made a habit of collaborating with artists outside the fashion space and news comes this week of a brand new collab with famed Japanese photographer Daidō Moriyama.

US-based Streetwear label Burma has built a following with impactful graphics like the ones featured on this Too Far Gone Tee. The line is exclusively available online through their site and Revive Michigan who are dropping a small selection of items today at noon EST.
NOWHERE is a shop that has been at the center of the streetwear world it’s whole existence. While I never had the privilege of visiting the store before it’s closure, I was able to research key moments in it’s history.
Below is an excerpt from the brief history of NOWHERE I wrote, you can read the the rest over on Grailed.
Streetwear through the 1990s was a regional phenomenon. The success of a label was determined through its ability to proliferate amongst a local scene. Brands of the time found an audience through adjacent subcultures like BMX, skateboarding, punk and hip-hop to push their products. The ’90s saw the emergence of Stussy as a mainstream brand and Supreme as a force within New York’s downtown scene. As American streetwear brands built their empire, so did a young generation of streetwear designers from Japan.
Within the greater Japanese fashion industry, a particular area held particular influence: Urahara. The neighborhood was home base for those who ultimately would become the leaders of Japanese streetwear. Brands like A Bathing Ape, Bounty Hunter, Undercover, WTAPS and Neighborhood owe much of their success to Urahara and the community that grew around it. In particular, Jun Takahashi and Nigo started something special by opening NOWHERE in 1993. The original store was the first place to sell both Undercover and BAPE and it’s unique reputation and product mix gives it a legendary status in the streetwear world to this day.
American streetwear label BURMA has been quietly making a name for themselves with impactful graphic designs that reference the 1990s. While the brand has been available exclusively online up until this point, they have created two designs exclusively for Detroit based Revive. The collection goes live today at noon and you can shop the collection here.
Streetwear OGs Fuct have teamed up with Revive to bring back some of their classic t-shirt designs. These three vintage FUCT tees which were originally created and dropped in the 1990’s. On each tee you’ll find one of Erik Brunetti’s classic streetwear designs. For this series, each shirt is limited to 50 available per style and only availble at Revive.
The tees will be released this Friday, May 20th at Noon EST.
Streetwear label Brain Dead has been making a name for itself online with their eye-catching graphic designs. Their latest drop is revealed through a David Lynch-ian photo spread shot shot at a Motel. The surreal graphics are once again the highlight, mashing up random bits of popular culture and blending them into weird colorful collages. Look for the collection to be available October 12 at Dover Street Market or online at Brain Dead’s e-shop.

I’ve been tracking the progress of GAME for a little while now. The line is the brainchild of Lawrence Punshon. He’s someone with a real unique point of view in menswear and he has been expressing it through his tumblr Internet Flexin for some time. The line is an elevated take on basic streetwear staples, but through high quality materials and printing techniques and all items are made in Melbourne, Australia.
The collection consists of a range of long sleeve shirts with digital prints applied to both the left & right sleeves, as well as the front and back, an all over print t-shirt, a pure silk t-shirt and mesh shorts with prints applied to both the left and right legs. All prints utilising our advanced digital print techniques.
See the rest of the line after the jump. You can view and purchase these items on the GAME website.

Just got word from the C.E twitter that the SK8THING designed label has just launched it’s website. The website has an online store as well as little video segments that serve as an animated lookbook. The model appears to be none other than Zomby himself. There appears to be only a small selection of spring/summer goods currently for sale on the site. The prices range from about 7000 yen to 21,000 yen and it seems as the brand will ship to quite a few countries internationally.
The items include a beanie, T-shirt, hoody, crewneck , yellow cords and a coaches jacket. Really excited to see the clothing in person and see how the label continues to progress.
I’ve been following C.E for a couple collections now and think it’s one of the most promising streetwear labels on the market. Check our past coverage of the FW12 C.E collection HERE.
I’ve been rocking and admiring Supreme since around 2006. I really respect the brands development because I feel as it has grown with me without ever losing touch with what its core identity is. There are always a few items in each collection that I can identify with and be excited to purchase and wear and FW2011 is no exception. The preview dropped earlier today and I’m going to highlight a few of my favorite items from the collection.
Supreme always incorporates a few key prints into each of its collections. This time around they did a really great Paisley print hoody. The only thing I can’t decide is Maroon or Navy. While some say this pattern is a little busy I personally just love it.
Supreme featured two colorways of a Liberty print t-shirt in SS11 and now they are back with two more. Not sure if I’ll scoop this up but considering that I love the shirt I got from last season ; never say never.
Love Hennessy. Drink Hennessy. This obvious Mobb Deep nod and return of the Hennessy design is a must buy for me. The Miners jacket has some nice details and the quality looks quite good. Navy would be in my pick in this design.
Good gloves are hard to come by. These fingerless gloves continue the design from last season sans fingers. I own the navy gloves from the past season and would love to pickup another pair in the grey or royal blue.
I’m a sucker for the kitschy collaborations and collectables Supreme makes. The highlights in that category this time are the dice and the FUCK carpet. The rug once again is made by Gallery 1950 and while not as great as their previous Fuck Em collaboration, I’m sure I would regret NOT getting this decorative item.
I will be sure to make continual updates as this stuff hits the shelves at Supreme New York. In closing a couple footnotes.
Shook Ones Pt.II about 85% of the reason I want that Hennessy jump-off so bad and a certified hip-hop classic.
