Nooka - Mercury BK





The Nooka Mercury is available in six colors, including four neon shades, as well as the classic black and white. The polymer injected frames make the Nooka sunglasses light-weight, yet durable with a matching rubber nose-piece and ear guards for added comfort. The blue lenses with silver mirror finish adequately deflect sun rays and provide UV protection, while ensuring a high level of color and contrast acuity.


Not sure why, but these are kinda sick.
The all black ones and white ones are dope.
They're available for pre-sale only. They'll be shipped June 13th.
And the $130 price tag isn't so bad either.
Check em out over at

But Wiz comes with his A Game.

Dennis McGrath for HUF


Dennis McGrath was born in New Jersey in 1969. He became interested in photography when he started skateboarding in the mid-80's. In 1994 he took a more serious interest while studying at the San Francisco Art Institute. From 1995-2005 he shot for most major skateboard publications worldwide. In 2005 Dennis stepped away from photographing skateboarding to focus on more personal documentary type work. He is interested in story-telling through the photographic process with the use of text and ephemera to help tell a story. His work was shown in the Bay Area Now 4 show at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in 2005 as part of the Hamburger Eyes exhibit. He lives and works in San Francisco and Los Angeles.




This collab has to be one of the best i've seen.
Deff one of my favorites.
Dennis' story is great, and so are the pieces in the collab.
Below is the release party at the HUF Los Angeles store
And after party at the Kibitz Room featuring performance by http://www.hannielkhatib.com on May 20th, 2010.




Below are various photos of the girls used in this collaboartion
And product photos as well.
Enjoy.

Mosley Tribes Lyndel Beaded Sunglasses



I'm a big fan of Native American culture and designs.
These Mosley Tribes are super legit.
A cool pair for summer.
But maybe the $695.00 price tag isn't so cool.
They'll be made available at
Oliver Peoples Boutiques
And other select stores nationwide.

Pantone Hotel







Opening in the Brussels’s Sint-Gilles area, the Pantone Hotel has just opened. The project is an initiative by the Pantone global colour authority who have worked in collaboration with a group of British developers to produce 59 affordably priced rooms in stylish, colorful designs, created by architect Olivier Hannaert and interior designer Michel Penneman. Each of the seven floors have been decorated using different color palettes to enhance its guests’ emotions, indeed the rooms are also patterned from one of seven distinct pantone colors.

This has to be one of the most clean/legit/sick hotels i've ever seen.
The colors really make it.
And the fact that it's simple, if i'm ever in the area,
I'm deff stayin there.
