April 30th, 2009 by Larry

Nike Sportswear Hong Kong

Last summer I had the pleasure of previewing the newly opened Nike Sportswear flagship store at 21 Mercer in NYC along with it’s opening festivities. In true Nike fashion, I was invited to check out NSW’s digs in Hong Kong. Although the store’s Grand Opening has long past (it opened in October of 2008), I still wanted to take advantage of a rare opportunity to feature an HK destination that should be on the top of everyone’s lists when visiting.

See the rest of NSW Hong Kong after the jump. Read the rest of this entry »

DC Shoes x Standard – Admiral Hightop

April 28th, 2009 by Georgios

dc_stand_adm8a-2.jpg

After years of having their feet planted firmly in the Atlanta lifestyle market, Standard opened the doors to it’s second location in Lenox Square. To commemorate the expansion, Standard has partnered up American footwear giant DC Shoes for their first collaborative efforts. The goal in this collaboration was to represent design elements that have always been strongly present in the motif of Standard. The true red color embodies the strong presence of red accents at both locations along with the green laces and insole, which represent the artificial turf that covers the floor at the new store, as well as the live turf used at various events at the original location.

Keepin’ it Local

April 28th, 2009 by Larry

ll_hk_425.jpg

Howdy from the other side of the globe! I’ve been in HK for the past few days and I thought it’d be nice to rep StreetLocal (one of our favorite brands/crews from ATL) while on the go. I’ve been using this StreetLocal Gentleman comb every day to keep my mane in check. As soon as I have a chance to edit my photos, I’ll post some interesting stuff I’ve been working on. It’s fun being in Asia but I can’t wait to be back with the crew in the Dirty-Dirty. Let’s get it Hawks!

At the last Process x El Bar party, we gave this piece to Rob Wonder and Rosa. It was influenced by the El Bar Mary t-shirt that we collaborated on. We are working on something special with El Bar so stay tuned for more.

Photo Friday: Peter Funch

April 24th, 2009 by Ross

1997.jpg

While perusing the world wide web this week I came across something that made me stop in my tracks and sucked me in for quite some time. The work of Peter Funch is something that engaged me in the imagery, which is something that I could only say about a handful of photographers before I found his work. This isn’t to say that while looking at photography I am not totally engaged, but this work in particular is something that really drew me in. His concept is simple enough, take a series of images from a specific spot and then take sections that match and turn them into a single image. For example take everyone from one scene that walked through the frame that was wearing the color white and make a single photograph out of those people. Sounds simple enough but when you see the images it really takes you back. I’m a huge fan of images that suck you in like Funch’s work does and if you like what you see you can check out some more of his work after the jump.

US Royalty & Friends – Sweet Virginia

Done to Death artists, US Royalty, just recently collaborated with Joseph Pepper from Cartel & Stuart Luptin from The Child Ballads / Jonathan Fire*Eater covering The Rolling Stones “Sweet Virgina.”

I had a chance to catch up with Joseph at El Bar a couple weekends back and he mentioned that the idea for collaborating was very impromptu, yet welcomed. Apparently he hit the studio immediately, recorded the guitar track, and was pleased to hear the final result!
