A Bathing Ape’s diverse range of offerings has long spanned beyond just fashion and streetwear. A full-fledged lifestyle and accessories line has arguably been one of the brand’s most valuable segments as a new addition comes to us in the form of the MILO ABC Cushion. MILO loses his signature brown coat in exchange for A Bathing Ape’s iconic camouflage. Available now at BAPE STORES globally.
Just in time for the holidays, Chicago’s Saint Alfred and New Balance have come together to release a limited edition version of NB’s “1500″ sneaker silhouette. Highly tonal, the release sees a primarily red makeup of ballistic nylon mesh and long-grain suede while a contrasting white midsole and gum rubber outsole work to give a little dynamic and tie the shoe together. Other details of the collaboration include 3M accents and a subtle hit of gold to the ENCAP branding. These Saint Alfred x New Balance 1500 sneakers are due to be available beginning this Saturday, December 7 at 10 a.m. CST both in-store and online and stalfred1500.com before hitting additional New Balance stockists December 28.

No word on when, or if, we’ll ever receive 50 Cent’s Street King Immortal album, but according to Huffington Post (via Miss Info) Fif is planning on releasing a different project in January.
He didn’t spill too many details, only saying that it wouldn’t be a mixtape, but also not quite an album…So it looks like we should just stay tuned for news on the project, which he says “inspired in a whole other direction.”
Apparently his musical tastes are ever expanding. “I’m not just into hip-hop, and really, hip-hop is the genre that pulls from all other genres. I appreciate the people who perform differently,” he said. “I remember hearing Ariana Grande for the first time and thinking, ‘Look at this shit!’ I’ve seen a lot of people create their music right in front of me, and I love hearing their live recordings and then seeing how it changes through different plug-ins and the whole recording process.”
Not since 2007 have Nike designer Eric Avar and Kobe Bryant come together on a signature shoe, so the anticipation of this Kobe 9 Elite sneaker has been high. The Kobe 9 Elite is purported to be a high-top sneaker that plays like a low, with a notable element being the first usage of Flyknit on a basketball shoe. Dynamic Flywire has been introduced for added support while a carbon fiber heel counter provides lateral support. A nice touch is the nine embroidered marking along the heel as a nod to Kobe’s Achilles surgery. Seen here in the “Masterpiece” colorway, the Nike Kobe 9 Elite is set to be available February 8, 2014.

Luxury men’s underwear label RevolutionWear recently kicked off the launch of its new FRIGO ® line with a highly interactive pop-up store held in New York’s Meatpacking district in the latter stages of last month.
Building on that momentum, the brand recently introduced its bold new campaign that instead of the typical muscle-bound males you might have been expecting, features seductive Swedish models that authoritatively proclaim “No Men Should Wear Underwear,” ushering in the next generation of men’s underwear and the influence of women on this selection process.
As the intended game-changer for men’s premium underwear the line’s premier model, the FRIGO® Executive, is loaded with performance features that give each pair a level of casual comfort we’d normally expect of those designed for sportswear. These include support elements such as an adjustable pouch for a customized fit, an interior mesh pouch to keep everything in good order and a silicone lining to stops the boxer briefs from riding up. Aside from ensuring a secure fit, the underwear is also made with features to maximize comfort including a proprietary waistband made with wicking fabric, laser-cut vents on the back and patches of Eurojersey and Italy microfiber on the thighs for added breathability.
To see a photo recap of the event, checkout the pop-ups event page here. FRIGO® is currently available for purchase through select Macy’s, Neiman Marcus, and Lord and Taylor locations as well as online through Freshpair.com
