your dream might come true... you stood in line just to watch how
those resellers copped your holy grail sneakers. many of you have
waited for them for months - from the first pictures that were featured
on fatlace until 1-2 weeks ago when they started to (dis-)appear
in the stores. this shoe might be considered the 'nike dunk supreme
of 2003' (at least for the first half of the year) and to honor
that, goodfoot from toronto has given us the opportunity to offer
you this competition where one lucky winner will be able to take
home one pair of these sneakers. click below or on the banner to
the left to find out how you could win...
'some girls' was michael leon's show at redfive. you probably all
went there so we can make this quick. the people at redfive are
so generous as to provide us with the merchandise from the show.
basically, you can get everything that was on display. there are
decks - custom shapes as well as regular shapes, stickers, t-shirts,
a poster, etc.. this summer will be costly - tons of t-shirts, posters,
decks, and then we are all waiting for the new stussy huaraches...
the latest stop of the gravis mindclouder tour was antwerp's gallery/retail
space shutzmarket. from the pics it must have been a very relaxed
event. from all the sun we hope that at least a few people found
their way into the store to look at the art and merchandise. by
the way, watch this space for more on the people behind the dogs
and meat love designs. those two are on fire and we're trying to
get a hold of them for you.
this was alena's third event in the no damn good art series. this
time they celebrated the launch of 'all city', the book on making
it all city as a graf artist. we know that you might become distracted
by all those ltd. edition nikes, but you really should take notice
of the artwork, too. people involved in this show/the book were:
paul107, dyske, turfone. music was provided by the killer b's. instead
of reading this afterwards, try to go there next time...
here it is, our own little online shop. we only have two items at
the moment but please be patient for more in the coming weeks. as
you can see, we are finally offering the jb x beinghunted sneaker
that we premiered in april. 48 pairs of this shoe exist and this
color won't be released again. we are also offering a few of the
exclusive t-shirts that we had produced for vacant in nyc. since
this is a new field for us, we are happy to receive your comments
on this shop. please also tell us if you have problems with the
display of the pages.
hi folks! with this post we'd like to tell you about our latest
pick-ups. a few colors of sneakers that you've all seen before,
together with t-shirts that match those sneakers. and sure, they're
all mad limited. don't ask how we got them so easily. just went
to the mall and picked them up... take a look at those navy/white
dunk highs with the jumpan logo on them! ok, nonsense. you know
that we always like to balance sneaker posts with other gear. and
in times where the sneaker craze has gone beyond the reach of modern
medicine we'd like to slow it down a bit and talk about alternatives.
alife - even though they also cater to the sneaker infected masses
- are opening up new ways for footwear. their new ritefoot range
consist of modified boat shoes and loafers as well as early 90s
skateshoe-inspired trainers. you will definitely break necks with
these - especially when standing in line to pick up a pair of ltd.
ed. dunks. we love them and we thank alife for doing the rite thing
the time span that lies beteween the jb posts on beinghunted roughly
represent the time that his shoes (and samples) need to return from
production. his newest models and colors are termed 'the new avenue
series'. he sent us a short description of this project which we'll
transcribe here 1:1. "the new avenue series from jb collectables,
fresh from the vine, ripened to perfection. be sure your pick is
ripe; check for colorway harmony & fine grain leather consistancy."
yes, check for that. jb will show us all more detailed product pics
over the coming weeks. and we'll show you something, too, on the
now is the best time to fill your closets with the best t-shirts
for 2003. summer has arrived and so have the freshest tees. besides
all the independent t-shirt producers one shouldn't oversee that
the big guys also have great designs to offer. over the past few
days we picked out a few for you to consider. our favourites - undefeated!
it's always the stuff that one can't get that one likes the most...
here is an update on our schwipe friends down in australia. last
thing we saw from them was a picture in a swiss magazine of tony
alva wearing their 'ketamine is a drug for horses' t-shirt. if that's
not a testimonial of the highest grade we don't know what is. parallel
to releasing new gear the schwipe army of skeletons has invaded
our spot in darlinghurst/sydney on june 11th. you can find large-scale
representations of these messengers of death (and schwipe) on every
wall - they didn't leave one spot bone-less at our spot. for those
of you who don't know what to do with their spare time - you can
cut out the images of their new catalogue and glue them together
to get a schwipe mini poster.
... like what? we can't tell. we can only show you what it looks
like. it's a see-through ape with a nozzle as a hat and perfume
inside. is this the last piece for the 100% percent bape follower?
no, we say, there are still a million products and possibilites
for a bape make-over. one thing - if you had the choice between
the futura ck one and the bape scent - which one would you take?
if you want to survive these days as a toy/figure collector and
not die out of poverty, you need to set yourself clear goals, precise
areas of investment. unless you found a way to sell air to people
at a good price, you will have to focus on a certain artist, a certain
company or a certain style of figures. one could be sci-fi heroes,
for example. if that's your field - take a look at this new one
by strangeco x super-7. it's the cosmouse. it could be jerry's older
brother gerald who found his way out of the daily cat/mouse stupidity
and made it into space. got himself a star tattoo on the forehead,
a space suit complete with booster, and took off... now you can
bring him back to earth again...
everytime we post this, we have to think of something new to say
about relax magazine... this time we can't, really. but we have
a couple of questions and maybe some of you people can answer them:
1) how do they do it? this magazine is packed with stories that
other magazines can only come up with after half a year - they do
it on a monthly basis? 2) how come they always have the best of
everything - photography, models, art, clothing, etc.? 3) will there
ever be an english version of it? contents: bikin girls (lots of
them), old school b-boy party flyer, stan smith, andy jenkins, etc..
it's been some time now that we've told you about a new project
in the art/t-shirt scene. there are a lot of talented people out
there and today we decided to tell you a bit about this one who
calls himself (or his project) the gasface. from looking at the
work you can 'watch' how the gasface progressed from being just
stickers and posters plastered in public spaces to becoming a graphic-oriented
t-shirt enterprise. small, yes, but/and highly creative. this, combined
with in-depth flash knowledge, is summed up in a neat website that
will definitely catch people's attention. it caught ours for sure.
maybe you've already read about it, maybe you have heard about it
or seen bits and pieces of it in the context of this years oscar's.
we can't emphasize the relevance of this movie enough... beinghunted
is not know for being either a forum for music or movie reviews
but we'll have to talk about 'hero' - and this post isn't really
a review but a reminder for you to try to catch it in a movie theater
(with a xxxl-size screen and a-grade sound system) or at least to
get the dvd. so, here is what we have to say: go see it!
enough sun for us... we have 2 shop updates for you today. the first
one is from ambush in singapore. they are just finished with their
refurbishment... the space looks amazing. of course, you shouldn't
just go there for the interior design but maybe also to check out
their stock: pam, recon, subware, invisible:man, ssur, gimme5, le
nike as well as toys by kaws, unkle, ssur, amos etc. more great
labels are on the way for the coming season. ambush is here: 14
#04-70 far east plaza, singapore. the second update is from supply
in australia. they have just released card sets designed by various
artists. if you're more interested in supply's stock: silas, pam,
ssur, invisible:man, anything, sarcastic,
onetruesaxon, kostas, kaws toys, and goodenough for the summer.
supply is here: r1/2-8 brisbane st, darlinghurst, sydney.
yes, yes, this june 1st update is a bit late - but with the sun
out and all we couldn't resist spending some time where there is
fresh air and no pc, mac, notebook, palm, cellphone or any other
work-related gadget in sight. to make it quick we'll squeeze a few
things into one post.
sneakers: tired of too many colourways, customs, and re-releases
of one model or color? with this one by adidas, you're sure to get
a unique shoe that is 100% guaranteed not to be released like this
in the future. why? because in the future there just might not be
anymore coffee bags, and that's what the 'indoor super hcb' are
partially made out of. 300 pairs will be available from select adidas
stores in a few weeks.
skateboards: we heard of this a little while ago, now we can tell
you more. jack spade in nyc is famous for high quality bags and
accessories. besides that they have also started to produce/sell
limited edition products varying from books, to toy airplanes, instant-game-of-dice
sets, and - this is our post - a skateboard deck. it was handshpaed
by no other than evan hecox, features a subtle check print together
with the jack spade logo and evan hecox signature. great shape!
give us more of these old-old-school decks.
the photo above is from our personal stock. we'll do this from time
to time - show you a little of what we like to snap...
