As part of its ongoing series of collaborations, retaW — the forward-thinking fragrance label established by Hiroshi Fujiwara in 2008 — has partnered with the POOL aoyama and fragment design on a new Fragrance Car Tag for 2014. Inspired by flower artist Makoto Azuma’s recent “AMKK” pop-up shop at the POOL, the handy item features the fresh scent of lilies and an all-over floral print, making for a pleasantly aromatic accessory for one’s vehicle or home, as well as a unique stocking stuffer with Christmas quickly approaching. Look for the POOL aoyama x fragment design x retaW “Allen” Fragrance Car Tag now at the HYPEBEAST Store.
After sprinting onto the scene in its Runner form, the adidas SL Loop opts for more of a lifestyle approach for its Black/White Moc release. Done up with its premium upper, inner lining, laces, and heel tab clad in black, a crisp shade of white takes care of the contrasting stitching and midsole. Complete with a purple accenting and a classic gum outsole, the adidas SL Loop Moc Black/White is available now over at Kentucky-based retailer Oneness.

For roughly a year, the sneaker world has been waiting on pins and needles for the release of the first Kanye West collaboration with adidas. Since bouncing from the Swoosh and signing with the Three Stripes, there’s been talk of up to 20 designs and even a recent shot of a possible prototype.
While at LAX, TMZ tracked down Kanye West as he walked through the airport. Hounded by the paps about Kim K’s PAPER magazine cover and more, the constant questioning resulted in a couple laughs from Kanye and one quote:
“I’m going to China to work on the Yeezis.”
With adidas’ US headquarters in Portland and their global headquarters in Germany, this may mean the adidas Yeezis are actually in the production process. A look at the tongue tag on the Tubular, Pure Boost or Big Sean Pro Models will all reveal “Made in China” text, perhaps pointing to a Yeezi release being sooner rather than later. Peep the video below and let us know your hopes for the adidas Yeezis in the comment section.
