Take a look at the visual for SGP’s ‘Osiris of the East’ which is off his debut studio album Mysterious Phonk : The Chronicles of SpaceGhostPurrp . You can buy the album digitally on iTunes.
Whatever you do just make sure you don’t sleep on SpaceGhostPurrp and Raider Klan, they’ve steadily been putting out heat and building momentum with each live show and mixtape.
The Gamme Bleu collaboration between Thom Browne and Moncler has been one of the most consistent capsule collections in menswear. Although I am more partial to the Fall/Winter collections, Thom Browne can never be faulted on his immaculate runway presentations. The SS13 iteration of Gamme Bleu is inspired by naval uniforms and traditions.
Kaya is a close friend of mine and the creative director of The Metaproject and Six Scents Parfums. He recently began creating his own short films and he shared this one with me today entitled ‘Theater on Canvas : The Pain in Pleasure.’ The short visceral film explores the impact of pleasure , repetition and sound on our memories.

The G.O.O.D music crew just dropped this visual for ‘Mercy’. It appears that ‘Ye set the dress code for the video to be Gothninja everything. Time will tell if this will be the tone and visual style of the upcoming ‘Cruel Summer’ album.
Without a doubt, A$AP mob is killing the rap game right now. Rocky in particular has one of the freshest sounds and looks in music period. Wassup is in the early lead for my favorite video of 2012. Being a big fan of 90’s rap videos, this definetly takes me back to that era.
A.$.A.P Rocky teamed up with VICE to create a video inspired by Scarface, Belly, Enter The Dragon, The Warriors and, Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory.
The result is a video that follows A.$.A.P Rocky through a dreamy fantasy world filled with 40s, Ferari’s, homies and hoards of cash.

A Kid Cudi cover sung by Lykke Li turned trill. Nuff said.

On this unbelievably mild January New York day I can’t believe Spring/Summer 2012 collections are already beginning to trickle into stores. My friend Joseph from Alwaysnever shared this video that provides a glimpse of the behind the scenes preparations at the SS2012 Robert Geller show. This video is well worth a view if you enjoy seeing the creative process of designers.
Nike and Jun Takahashi present their third running collection under the Gyakusou sub-brand. I have owned several pieces from past seasons and I must say the utility, styling and construction has always been top-notch. I really appreciate Jun’s work on this entire collaboration as it’s entirely evident that his heart is in it. He is able to merge his design prowess and interest in long-distance running with Nike’s manufacturing prowess. This video takes on a theme reminiscent of Buddhist monks and artfully showcases the new items including thermal t-shirts with zip-off sleeves, and what looks like a return of the Lunar Spider TT+ in fresh colorways.
Word is that prices are lowered this season so runners (and Undercover fans) everywhere can rejoice. I’ll be sure to provide more Gyakusou coverage as it comes.
The above video highlights some of the key details of this new batch of FW2012 pieces. As always ACR stays killing it in the accessories and outerwear departments. These pieces continue to show the brand’s commitment to creating items with harmonious utility & aesthetic in mind.
Beinghunted always brings great features this time they have had a conversation with Erolson Hugh (co-owner and designer of Acroymn). I particularly found the below question inspiring.
Before we talk about your new collection, tell us about the development of Acronym as a design studio over the past 2-3 years. You have grown quite a bit?
Two years ago I started working with Johanna, my first assistant in Berlin. Recently, the team has grown to where we can do everything we need to do without ever leaving the building: product, identity, film, strategy, dumplings, cake, interpretive dance… We’re all freelance, and all running additional individual projects, so there’s massive throughput. Lots to do. Lots to absorb. Lots to learn. Michaela in Brooklyn, Turbo in Tokyo, Bagjack, and our factory in CZ, continue to evolve as the other major hubs in the network. Watch this space.
All growth is relative, though. The next smallest company doing comparable work is (last I checked) upwards of 50 times larger than we are. The largest players on the field -some tens of thousands of times (yes, that’s several million percent bigger). Think about what this means. So, in relation to that, we’ve grown from infintessimally small, to still really really freaking small. But this is OK; we know Kung Fu.
