they are responsible for the stussy store in la and the tg-170 store in
nyc. they run 222 gallery in philadelphia and their own store - 4 x 4
- in hollywood (6324 yucca st.). who are they? otto design group! write
that name down and watch out for more odg activities in the near future.
one is the separations show (currently in philly) - it will relocate to
la in october. to kill some time until then, take a look at our pics of
the store and look for familiar items we've been telling you about all
| websites: 222
yeah! finally, as summer draws to a close - new stock is flowing in. we'll
start this season with silas tees. the 'protest series' features the familiar
silas figure 'martin' as well as other protest-related imagery. if you're
asking yourself "who's martin?- i just want to wear the logo"
- be very quick, since the logo tees are sold out even before they're
in. silas: we are wating anxiously for the new jackets, pants, etc.

vs. recursive x slazenger
a couple of weeks ago we told you about those daredevil~/mod~/polka-dot
vans slip-ons. unfortunately at that time they were unavailable. guess
what - they will be very soon. so head over to the vans website and pre-order
a pair today. if vans is too big a name for you, how about slazenger?
recursive in hong kong have an exclusive selection of slip-ons in very
fine leather variations. they are a bit more classy than the vans, that's
what we think.

also, quite a while ago, we mentioned the neograffiti project 3d initiated
by tokion. the first figure released was by the late margaret killgallen.
the next one in the series has just come out. this one is designed by
barry mcgee. get the details at the tokion website or their shop in nyc.
also new - a couple of tokion tees - always worth your money.

update for those who plan on flying/driving/walking/hiking to supreme
(nyc) to stand in line for a pair of the most anticipated sneakers (ever?):
rumor has it that the release date is september 3rd.
de luca & peabird - 'deadly wiz da disko'
you buy an album either because of the music or because of the cover -
in case of a cd also because of the booklet or the packaging in general.
so, we have the music approach on the one side and the design approach
on the other. in the case of funkstörung both approaches will leave
you satisfied in the end. what does this have to do with 'deadly wiz da
disko'? ok, a) it's released on !k7 records - home also to funkstörung
b) chris de luca is one part of funkstörung and c) the design of
the cd clearly follows funkstörung's graphic language. did we mention
funkstörung a bit too often here? sorry: peabird, chris de luca,
peabird, chris de luca, peabird. whatever approach you might choose -
you will buy the cd.

all of us probably own more than one pair - and even though the word 'woven'
has lost a bit of its magic over the years, there are still a few moments
when you should listen up. the last occasion was the release of the nike
htm woven and woven desert boot. with these nike has, once again, shown
that they are way up front concerning color-schemes and attention to detail.
new htms are on their way so be prepared. for those of you who can't wait
- here are a few new colors. check the multi-colored elastic fibres on
the wmns models!
- run -play
after two weeks of constant rain (half the country is flooded) this round,
bright-yellow, warm circle is up again - so we'll make this one quick,
to get outside. take this month's relax (sample pages will be added later
on) to find out about chris johanson and 30 years of the technics sl-1200.
then put on your nike pan am to head over to a ltd. ed. toy dealer for
one of kostas' hulk figures. if those are sold out already, catch a ride
to san pedro, ca to see and buy one of the original girl wooden figures
at 'would'. we're out...
somehow our parkwalk info has disappeared... that's why were posting it
again. a few numbers of tees are (hopefully still) available. designs
by: ben drury, gareth baylis, and will bankhead. please contact parkwalk
directly for colors and sizes.

b - new york: various artists
there are many reasons record labels give us for issuing compilations:
'the chill-out-café-so-and-so sound', 'the sound of such-and-such-superclub',
or 'the favorite tunes of dj what's-his-face'. now, here is one that made
perfect sense to us: apartment b has collected material from various artists
living in new york city during the summer of 2000. since we are no music
critics here at beinghunted, we can only recommend you listen to the tunes
and find out for yourself, if this is a souvenir of new york for you.
if, for one reason or another, you're not content with the music, you
might want to own the t-shirt that was issued with the cd.

lodown #32 & papersky #2
july was our graphic design month. the same is true for lodown #32 - the
'xspecial design freak issue by pact/blackred', which delivers many pages
of excellent visual stimuli. besides that there's an interview with rob
hubbard - the guy who turned your c 64 into a boom box, a bit on the haze/honda
design project, and the unusual street-, snow-, and sneaker-updates.
the second issue of papersky has just been released in japan. there is
not really much we need to say about the magazine. take a look at the
sample articles on their site and buy it right away. what we like about
tokion/papersky is that they always give you more than just a magazine.
enter papersky's shop to find a new papersky/doarat tee.

& phunk studio
both names should be familiar to regular visitors. we introduced subsurface
a couple of months ago and told you to keep watching this space for updates.
here is the first one: 'substance' just opened at exposure and features
artwork by subsurface and friends, a new ltd. edition range, and ltd.
and pre-release items. we'll give you more on this later on.
phunk studio seem to be everywhere at the moment. they just left singapore
for an exhibit at magma in london to celebrate the end of the transmission
02 : utopia project. contributors include: deanne cheuk, devil robots,
ricky powell, rinzen, jeremy hollister, jeff staple, ...

up & info
thanks for all the email concerning the supreme dunk issue. what we can
tell from the info we received is this: somehow a number of boxes found
their way out of the nike warehouse straight into the web. the guys at
supreme are rather upset that this happened - there is no explanation
on how this could have happened. at a price of $600-700 one can imagine
how much was paid for those shoes to get them out before their actual
any witnesses ?
ok folks, this time you have to do the explaining: there is this great
new ltd. edition nike dunk low pro sb - exlusively produced (and sold
at?) supreme. all sneaker heads among you probably have already put most
of your energy into a strategy to a) either be in front of the stores
at that parcticular date yourself, or b) to make someone be there for
you. rumor has it that this particular date will be sometime in september.
now then, how come that plenty of well known online-stores already sell
both colors in every size available? what did we miss here (apart from
the pricing which could be worth a few lines, as well)?
