OK, we've understood that today is sad day. Just bad news. We've just discovered that the inventor of the Nike Air Sole® has died. R.I.P. Frank Rudy!

I.D. DESIGN MAGAZINE | (1954-2009) | R.I.P.

Every time a Magazine shuts, this damn world becomes a bit worse.When we discovered that glorious I.D. MAGAZINE was closing, we got really really sad.

Statement for External Release December 15, 2009
To Readers, Advertisers and Friends of I.D. Magazine:
Since 1954, I.D. Magazine has served as one of America's leading critical magazines covering the art, business, and culture of design. Today it is with regret that we announce its closure. The January/February issue of I.D. will be its last; subscribers to I.D. will receive Print magazine for the balance of their subscription.
Ceasing publication of an iconic brand like I.D. is never an easy decision, but there are several forces that have worked against its sustainability. Certainly the downturn in print advertising has contributed to this decision, but other factors include the fragmentation and specialized information needs of I.D.'s core readers (product designers) and the plethora of information resources available to them – some for free (online and B2B) and others that are highly specialized and targeted to specific industries served.
F+W Media will continue producing the I.D. Annual Design Review, its flagship international product design competition, in an expanded fashion online. This new web initiative will feature not only 2010's winners but will catalog thousands of notable entries from past competitions. Going forward, in addition to the I.D. Annual Design Review, F+W Media’s Design Group is comprised of the award-winning HOW and Print brands – magazines, books, events, and competitions serving the information needs of graphic designers in all media.
We thank the entire I.D. community, past and present – staffers, contributors, readers, and advertisers – for their support of the magazine throughout its 55-year history.
Gary Lynch Publisher & Editorial Director F+W Media Design Community

Dear fashion victims, please take note of this date, because everything won't be the same, later. Next 30th of November YOOX will put online a selection of hand made clothes by the Martin Margiela's Artisanal Line. Each piece' ic completely hand made and represents more an Art-work than a normal dress. We can't wait!!!

Honeyee has added some gems in its online store. Our fave is this jacket made in collaboration between Hiroshi Fujiwara and Jun Takahashi (AFFA Anarchy Forever, Forever Anarchy). We think that it is simply a complete masterpiece. C'mon go there and buy it!

Maybe the best Christmas's gift ever? :-)

WiLLiAMSon-DicKiE CalifORniA SelVAGe jeANS

Finally, one of the US workwear big hitters wades in deep with some quality selvage denim!

C.N. Williamson and E.E. "Colonel" Dickie began their business careers in the "vehicle and harness" business in Bryan, Texas.
In 1918, the name changed to U.S. Overall Company and in 1922, C. Don Williamson joined with his father and cousin and renamed it the Williamson-Dickie Manufacturing Co. From its conception as a bib overall company, today Dickies has grown to be the number one manufacturer of work apparel worldwide.

Dickies, known for its tough reliable clothing has drawn on this heritage to produce Dickies California Selvage jean. It was only a matter of time before Dickies delved deep into its history and realized it was time to go back to basics to produce a quality denim whose attention to detail is second to none!

Made from the finest Zimbabwean cotton then woven into red selvage denim fabric in Japan on vintage shuttle looms. The denim is then constructed by a small family run Japanese manufacturer- whom Dickies are their only US clients.
No detail has been overlooked in the process of making these jeans, right down to the classic workwear cut and the reproduction of the old Dickies union labels, creating an authentic workwear denim trouser.

To be sold at selected European stores.

Exhibition by Misha (PAM)

BLACK & BLUE Gallery

302/267-271 Cleveland St, Redfern

From the 13th until the 28th of November

"Misha Hollabach's latest works is steeped in visual signposts and inferences to faeces. A shrine to shit , it mixes metaphorical messages with overt sculptural and visual detritus to recreate the viewers experience of faeces. In this representation of shit , Misha touches upon the etymological origins of faeces which derives from faex, the latin for dregs, shit becomes a metaphor for unwanted It is his first solo exhibition, a process of clearing the proverbial bowels in what is a visceral visual exploration of what is every human's first sculptural creation, that of faeces".

SuPER 8 MAgaZine

SUPER 8 Magazine is a poster magazine printed in A3 format and it's for free. Now has just been released their 3rd ISSUE. The philosophy behind this magazine is based on the number 8: each issue has a title that is composed by a letter plus the number 8, that creates a word with a sense. For instance: C8 that means "lovesick", D8 that means "learned", R8 that means "broken" and so on... What else?!? We like it and we support it. Well done!
