About the Nike and Michael Lau project

Nike just opened the doors to their new flagship store in Central, Hong Kong. For this grand opening event, Nike invited Michael Lau for a collaboration that would celebrate this occasion. The collection is known as the Gardener series. Other than Michael Lau, many of his friends and family, and other local celebrities were in attendance. Accompanied by free drinks, good music, and handouts, the evening was a success and a good time. Especially since everyone in attendance received a Michael Lau Gardener toy giveaway. Also, more than 100 people lined up to get their hands on the Michael Lau x Nike SB Dunk. I guess not everyone was so lucky, but props to those who were able to secure a pair for themselves. Price tag of the Nike Dunk Low SB’s: $1999 HKD. View HypeBeast for information and more pictures

LEVIS VINTAGE WEBSITE

22 02 2007

At the time of writing this article, the Levis Vintage website is still loading. We have now had to endure 10 minutes of some very annoying music.

Just as I am about to hit the close button something happens and the flash site comes to life, but only for a short few seconds.

Stay tuned to see if we actually get to see images of the new Levi’s Peter Blake Set.

I have never been a fan of Stan Smiths, but these have caught my attention. Nice to see our friends at Crooked Tongues involved.

This is the special release of a new Adidas Stan Smith in collaboration with the 123Klan. This release is part of Crooked Tongues, U-Dox, Adidas, and Footlocker’s “End to End Project,” which is a graffiti inspired collection of Adidas For those that don’t know, the 123Klan is a graffiti art design group started by artists Mrs Klor and Scien. The 123 Klan and its other members started as special invited artists and exhibitors at special conferences and events worldwide. They then took their art to a new level when they became the first to mix graffiti and graphic art on the web. Now the 123Klan do all kinds of projects from walls, to posters, flyers, illustrations and more on their own terms for different clients.
