Drawing inspiration from an eclectic mix of traditional garments, sportswear and Malian blues band, Terakaft, British label Tourne de Transmission returns with its “Disorder” collection for Fall/Winter 2014.

Standouts from the range include an eye-catching, multi-paneled baseball sweater, desert storm motif crewneck, all-over print bomber jacket and a weather-resistant parka, all of which are contemporary, graphic-driven twists on classic fall styles. Look for Tourne de Transmission’s Fall/Winter 2014 “Disorder” collection now from the HYPEBEAST Store.

Munich-based start-up company UNU Motors has unveiled an electric scooter that is powered by a Panasonic lithium-ion battery unit and can be charged from any electrical outlet. Headed by Atahi Elias and Pascal Blum, the UNU takes design cues from the timeless gasoline-powered Vespa, however its integrated F1 technology, specifically the Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS), sets it apart from any scooter currently in the market and is the secret behind its whopping range. With a top speed of 45 km/h (approximately 28 mph) and weighing in at a mere 58 kg, this scooter is clearly designed for whizzing around the city. Furthermore, the UNU Electric Scooter’s price point of €1,699 EUR (approximately $ 2,230 USD) makes for an even more enticing option for urban commuters to consider.
