Tommy Hilfiger and AAPE by A Bathing Ape have teamed up again, creating a unisex apparel collection, which dropped earlier today.

The winter-approved collection features skater-inspired outerwear, a collectible graphic skateboard, and a variety of accessories to help transition consumers into the early onset of spring. In its second iteration, Tommy x AAPE explores primary colors: punchy, plaid motifs complement assorted graphic pullovers and T-shirts.

The collection pays homage to local New York City-based skaters Kyota Umeki, Lucinda Jacobson, Brandon Scott James, and Hank Korsan, accompanied with documentary-style visuals, seamlessly blending AAPE’s classic camo print with Tommy Jeans’ plaid detailing. The apparel is colorful and understated – a perfect symbiosis of streetwear and skater youth culture. Traversing the Lower East Side to Brighton Beach in Brooklyn, Tommy x AAPE celebrates the unique union of skate culture with fashion and music and the communities that weave within three.

The colorblock reversible vest is an honorable mention for winter layering. Consumers will find a variety of two-tone, cold-weather essentials from heritage beanies, branded denim overalls, and a two-in-one jacket featuring a cool-toned buffalo check motif and interior plush teddy lining.

Shop the live collection on both Tommy and AAPE and select flagship stores.

G-SHOCK is getting in early on the impending Lunar New Year with a limited edited MTG honoring the Year of the Tiger. Casio worked with young Chinese graffiti artist Hou Shanzhao who created not only the engraved pattern on the case back but a painting of a golden tiger to support the release.

The MTG-B1000 is from G-SHOCK’s “Metal Twisted G-Shock” premium line has been used as the base model for a Year of the Zodiac limited edition for the first time.

Here a gold-colored bezel and case back are paired with a “striking red strap.” The bezel undergoes a “laser peeling” process to create its golden tiger stripe pattern. The watch features Bluetooth and Multiband 6 connectivity, Tough Solar power, and scratch-resistant sapphire crystal glass.


The MTG-B1000CX-4AER is available now via G-SHOCK

Chinese New Year is always a time that Nike (NYSE:NKE -1.20%) circles on its calendar to make sure it gives the festivities its deserved recognition. And this year, the Beaverton-based sportswear company is treating its consumers with a wide range of new footwear, one being this Nike Air Force 1 Low “Year of the Tiger” that has just been unveiled by way of official imagery.

For this new iteration, the Swoosh design teams implement a handful of striking details that are both vivid and relevant to Chinese culture. Much like Travis Scott’s first Nike Air Force 1 collaboration, the uppers of this rendition are crafted with a white canvas material, and these come overlaid with golden yellow and black tiger-striped Swooshes to echo its zodiac-inspired motif. Instead of the traditional Nike Air branding on the tongues you’ll find a unique “T” logo, and the lateral heels are embroidered with an intricate image of a tiger. The interior liners are drenched with a cherry red hue while bright orange finishes apply to the heels and the entire treading.

There’s no exact release date set in stone for these just yet, but you can likely anticipate Nike to drop these in the coming weeks ahead of Lunar New Year.

The first few months of 2022 will see a handful of cultural celebrations go down, one being St. Patrick’s Day this coming March. And to get into the spirt of this annual Irish holiday, the Nike team has elected to manufacture a playful SB Dunk Low “St. Patrick’s Day” colorway.

From a palette standpoint, this forthcoming installment is very similar to the Nike SB Dunk High “St. Patty’s Day” variation that released in 2013, but it features various adjustments in materials that allow it to stand on its own. Most of the base layer is constructed with a smooth suede green and comes submerged in a bold, shamrock-inspired green. Metallic gold accents follow suit as they dress up the traditional Nike branding on the fat tongues and heels as well as the Swooshes on the lateral and medial walls. To further stress its festive sensibility, the kicks are also supplied with clover green laces and white shamrock silhouettes embroidered into the lateral heels. Down below, you’ll find the midsoles splashed with an angelic finish and the outsoles styled with a full gum hue.

Check out a detailed look here above and expect Nike SB retailers to stock these sometime in March for $110 USD.

Following an official look at the Nike Dunk Low “Barber Shop,” we now have on-foot images of the alternate “White Barber Shop” colorway.

Set to release early 2022, the upcoming take on the popular footwear model serves to celebrate local barbershops and their place in communities.

The Nike Dunk Low “White Barber Shop” features a gray nubuck upper accented by white leather elements and red/blue/white barbershop pole piping. Additional detailing comes in the form of mismatched lace tips, gold clipper guard lace dubraes and hair pattern graphics. Finishing up the design of the shoe are pure white midsoles paired with light blue rubber outsoles.

Priced at $110 USD, the Nike Dunk Low “White Barber Shop” is set to release in the coming months.

A sneak peek of Christian Tresser’s game-changing Nike Air Max ‘97 shoe reveals a fresh new design that seemingly takes inspiration from the classic 1980s TV series Miami Vice and its art deco-flavored pink and green logo.

The show’s logo takes front-and-center on Nike’s mood board as its color palette of turquoise and lavender rose has been incorporated onto the sneaker. Two bands of 3M reflective gray material encircle the upper lining, collar and tongue, and the upper and mid-section is composed of white mesh and leather with pink and green leather banding resting atop the classic foam midsole. A white fabric pull loop incorporates the lowercase “air max” insignia and stretches down the back of the sneaker, with the legendary Nike “Swoosh” being encapsulated in a turquoise green leather tab placed at the top of the tongue.

An official release date has not been made.

Expanding its vast universe of fictional running clubs, Nike introduces its newest faction, the “Everybody’s Nike Running Club” and reveals the “Waffle One” sneaker as its introductory member.

Piggybacking on Nike’s theme of inclusivity, the lightweight runner incorporates a cast of varied cartoon style characters including a ninja turtle, a sleepy foot, a drippy cloud and a caged bird. This ensemble adorns the insoles of the shoe while a set of wide eyes are affixed to the tongue “Swoosh.” An earth-tone color scheme covers the sneaker in brown, forest green and hot pink, with a taupe suede tongue liner and mesh upper offset by a black leather center “Swoosh” and a juxtaposed yellow mini version next to the toe box.

Finishing off the sneaker is a paint-speckled grey outsole contrasted with a rose-colored TPU heel clip and dual stacked midsole, while the club name is circularly etched at the back pull tab.

We’ll have to wait until 2022 to cop these new earthy Waffle Ones, but its predecessor the “Waffle One SE” currently retails for $100 USD at Nike.com.

After going on a hot streak with Jordan Brand by generating Air Jordan 1 collaborations in 2018 and then two sets of Air Jordan 4 team-ups in 2020 and 2021, renowned streetwear boutique Union LA is now gearing up to partner with Nike to lend its touch to the Dunk Low. The shoes first surfaced towards the tail end of November, but now that the kicks’ official images have popped up we have a view all of its intricate details.

For this forthcoming design, Union owner Chris Gibbs and his team opted to stray away from the silhouette’s traditional constructions. Instead of smooth leather uppers, the shoes are devised with full grid-patterned uppers that are adorned with a cool baby blue tone across the forefoot and overlays and a gradient purple hue atop the quarter panels and collars. Contrasting notes arrive by way of the angelic tongues as well as the Union tabs that affix to the quarters and exposed orange stitchings that outline the shoe’s various sections. Union also adds their own Frontman logo atop the button that is embedded into the lateral heels, the left shoe’s insoles and on the forefoot of the icy treading.

The shoe box is cooked up with a special flight-inspired motif, and it houses a special flight ticket that says “Nike In Collaboration With Union.” The shoes are expected to drop sometime in 2022.

Teaming up with Barefoot Wines, the two will be releasing a small batch of “Barefoot x OREO THINS Red Blend Wine.” Taking chocolate-wine paring to a new level, this red wine’s flavor is directly inspired by OREO THINS with notes of chocolate, cookies-and-creme, and oak joined by natural flavors of blackberry and dark cherries.

We can’t wait for our OREO THINS fans (21+, of course!) to enjoy their favorite cookies with this rich and chocolatey flavored Barefoot x OREO THINS Red Blend Wine.”

This limited batch will be available on December 9 at Barefoot Wine for a price of $24.99 USD.
