Bold prints made a big impression at Burberry Prorsum this season, with the bright colours providing a stylish counterpoint to the label’s traditionally muted palette. This shirt’s graphic pattern has a hand-drawn, tribal influence that gives it a distinctive edge. The shades of brown/dark orange and gray/blue which will make for a great look with a solid pair of chinos, recalling the hazy heat of a sub-Saharan summer.

Givenchy releases their pre fall 2012 collection which was presented by Riccardo Tisci and features two models, Simone Nobili and Willy Cartier. The pieces were inspired by “sharks, marines and surfers in the night” mix tailoring along with some utilitarian aspects which is right up their alley. Even though it will be awhile before the collection releases, seeing that it is a “pre” fall collection, take a look at the rest of the lookbook below:
During my vacation in Jamaica, I visited Dunns River Falls and decided this would be the most opportune time to get a great sand wash at the beach. I’ve only had them for about 5 months now, which is a pretty decent age for washing raw denim jeans. Many people wait after 5 months, a year and you have those who don’t wash their jeans at all. As you look through the pictures, you’ll notice how distressed and worn the jeans become after sand washing; the honeycombs, whiskers, even the pocket areas.
I was pleased with the results of the wash. One big complaint people have with their jeans post-beach wash is stinky saltwater musks. Personally didn’t experience any adverse odours since the wash.

With Rottweiler graphics and other graphic elements, the designer has attracted the masses and brought Givenchy back. Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci presents their Spring/Summer signature bold printed graphic tees. The designer this season focuses more on the graphics revolving around pin-ups and exquisite flowers. The oversized tees are interesting and make that classic Givenchy statement.More graphics after the jump… (more…)

But thats besides the point, the royal blue foamposites are set to release sometime in February 2011. The last time these were seen in stores was back in 2007.

Yesterday we finally got to see the entire 2010 Nike Doernbecher Freestyle collection, kids, and designers. As you know, Cole Johanson, age 11, is the kid that designed the Air Jordan 3, along with help from Jason Mayden and Jake Van Damm. The shoes feature a varsity red/metallic silver/black colorway, and the most notable feature is the clear outsole. Like the previous years, the Jordan shoe is always the most anticipated shoe from the Nike Doernbecher collection. Jordan heads and supporters of Nike’s Doernbecher Freestyle will have a shot at getting the Jordans when they drop on December 11th at Niketown locations and Nike.com.
The price for the Doernbecher Air Jordan 3 on the official Jordan website is $125, but we were informed that the shoes will retail for $160. Get a detailed look at the DB Jordan 3’s after the jump, and stay tuned for a detailed look at the other 2010 DB shoes.
Jordan Brand presents the first shoe form their new Air Jordan CMFT Series, a collection that fuses comfort and style with classic elements. Here above you get a very first look at the first sneaker of the collection – the CMFT Viz Air 11. The colors and sole certainly remind of another popular lifestyle sneaker from Nike.
“Our high-performance Air Jordan basketball shoes are battle-tested and crafted to help take your game to the next level. Now we’re adding the comfort and quality you would expect on the hardwood to your everyday gear with the launch of the CMFT series. The CMFT Viz Air 11’s are the first of a casual series inspired by the Air Jordan line, and we’re committed to providing you with off-court options that deliver the Jordan style that you expect.
The CMFT 11 features the distinguishable upper that you’ll recognize from the Air Jordan XI, built on a visible air-cushioning system and translucent elephant-print sole.”
The new sneaker from Jordan Brand hits stores in two colorways on September 4th. (Via highsnobiety

Here’s a screenshot from Kanye’s latest single, Power. And of course he’s planning on creating a video as you can see. Its no secret that Kanye is back on his music, we can expect a lot from him this year. Plenty of posts from him this week, its good to have him back.
Just last night in LA, the 2010 BET Awards took place. KanYe simply killed the entrance to the show, opening up with his latest single; Power. Check out the video above.
Word is Tyler Perry fired his entire staff a couple days back prior to the last episode of The Boondocks. Last week’s episode basically exposed a side of Tyler Perry no one was aware of. The show portrayed him as a gay man and how he lives an “over the top” lifestyle. I guess we won’t be expecting any more of his movies/plays.
UPDATE: Tyler Perry’s statement in response to the rumors:
Just like the Spike Lee situation, I feel that “no response” is the best response. I’m just gonna leave it at that…
But I will tell you this… there is absolutely no truth to the rumor that I’m suing The Boondocks. Those are all lies. I’m not suing anybody over that.
And I haven’t fired anyone because of that show either. I don’t know where all that came from.
Today we have a preview of newest retro 7′s. It seems like everyone is excited about the Retro White Cement 3′s releasing in 2011. Along with those, Jordan Brand is releasing the Air Jordan Orion 7′s. Sometime near the end of this year, the Cool Grey 11′s will be releasing so keep a head up on those.
What do the sneaker heads think of these?
