We're not really big fans of the Vintage Fever, but we've been fans of Nike Blazer since we've worn them for the first time looooooooong time ago. For this reason, we can't wait to see them on the shelves!
Info+Pics from Jim at Milk Blog.
The pictures will be published in the December issue in a street fashion feature together with a short interview about the street sneaker look in London.
Stay tuned for the full feature!!!!

Today's most in demand-hip-hop producer extraordinarie, The Alchemist, is back with a new Digital EP titled CookBooK.
Following the first single Key to the City, this is Loose Your life feat Snoop Dog, Jadakiss and Pusha T. We like the beat, a bit less the gangster lyrics, but we absolutely love the Video. It has been produced by the legendary West Coast Graffiti artist Devin Flynn creator of the animated show "Y'all so Stupid", one of my favourite TV program at the moment. The video idea is a mix between Alchemist's Rap zombie visions and Dr Dre The Formula/Frankenstein ideas.
The result is brilliant, video of the week, no doubts!!!

In a previous post we've mentioned a new Brand that "shocked" us for its beauty and obsession for fabrics and details: Nigel Cabourn. Looking at their Collection, it seems like they enjoyed taking old classics twisting in a modern way, by using hi-tech materials. As we already said, Peacoat is a masterpiece, with astonishing leather inserts. It worths that money! Check here for more info about their releases, the stockists and, to have a complete overview of the FW'08 Collection.

A pure Berlin breathe! This is what you feel entering the E35 Store in Modena. E35 is a store existing since 2002 and it has a "mission": to support the emerging brands and prefer quality and reserch to quantity and easy/conventional design. That's why we love so much to go there, being sure to find everytime something new and unexpected. Last Saturday there has been the Opening of the new venue and we had the chance to have a look of their current stuff. Apart the "great classic" Red Wing and the always cool Freitag bags and Lomo cameras, what caused us almost a heart attack was the FW'08 Collection by Nigel Cabourn. It's been a while since we've seen such an obsession and attention on fabrics and details. HUGE! Speaking about the new Store, it looks really good, bigger and brighter than the old one. We like the fact that the old scraped plaster have been kept and matched with elegant and modern furniture. So, what can we say? We like it and you must get there if you love, like us, brands such as Red Wing, Freitag, Mykita, Ic Berlin, Lomo, Nooka, Nigel Cabourn and many many many others... Very well done!
A website will be online really soon. Stay tuned!

Pictures above show the new Nike Tier Zero release, the Court Force High Lux Edition. These sneaks feature a lux treatments in the materials come in two colourways: Black Sail and Light Charcoal Sail.
I am not a huge fan of Court Force, but I am liking these, in particular the black one that reminds me the infamous Court Force x Stussy 25th Anniversary.
The shoes are set to release this saturday at Nike Tier Zero retailers.
I don't know you guys, but I have been waiting these for ages and ages. Finally Jordan Brand is set to release the throwback of all throwbacks, the Black Red Air Jordan I High, this time though, with a strap. With the velcro removable, the sneaker has a perfect OG look.
