COMING SOON! F.R.K. T-Shirt Line For Men & Women

SpEkTrum7 has finally got the, highly anticipated,sneak peak of the up and coming men and women t-shirt line, Filthy Rich Kids. Though they have not released any fall look books to the public, they have released the logo, as shown above. Based on the hype and logo, I think this line is going to have a big impact on the fashion world. Based out of Virginia and Ohio, the FlyHeads, the designers' team name, have come up with many plans to promote the line. With a promotional launch party tour coming in early 2010 and a sample sale, the line will flourish. SpEkTrum7 will have more soon...keep a close lookout!

Lanvin X Converse Special Edition Av.09/10/09

While Alber Elbaz has the luxury sneaker game figured out with his popular and now iconically opulent hi-tops, the brand is livening things up by bringing the Converse Chevron and star into the mix. As a part of celebrating the fashion powerhouse’s 120th Anniversary, Lanvin collaborates with Converse to create a limited edition commemorative model of the brand’s Pro Leather ‘76 Hi. Clean and classic, these sneakers enjoy the Lanvin craft in premium white leather upper paired with navy accents in laces and Converse Chevron and star. The kicks are marked with embroidered Lanvin logo tag on the lace panel and a Lanvin en Bleu heart logo on the heel. Looking deliberately vintage and worn with off-white soles, these kicks are only available for a run of 120, dropping on Sep 10 at Openers. Via Freshness Mag.

Boston’s streetwear store Karmaloop is one of the giants in the industry and they have teamed up with skateboard/lifestyle sneaker brand Supra for this Holy Bananas Skytops project. The Skytops is the premier model from Supra that was given an all yellow treatment on the upper consisting of patent leather that is perforated in sections offering great breathability and styling. Set off with black laces, black inner lining and clean white midsoles. Also there will be a matching black tee with the illustration of Skytops on the front dubbed Flytop 2. Currently available in both men’s and women’s sizes exclusively at Karmaloop.

Nike X DJ AM - Limited Edition Dunks | Release TBD

Since DJ AM passed, not only had the we lost one of the most respected figures in music but also a fellow sneakerhead. And, now, according to TMZ, a pair of limited edition Dunks that were created by a collaborative partnership between Nike and DJ AM. As a rep from Nike related, DJ AM had been working closely with Nike on a line of limited edition Dunks that has his own logo emblazoned on them. The design was already completed and approved by DJ AM but the label is putting the shoes on hold because they are smoothing some release details and kinks with his family to figure out the “next step in terms of release”. Hopefully everything will be sorted out soon because we can’t wait to check out the collaborative work between Nike and the late DJ AM. Via Freshness Mag.


Converse Thriller Customs by SBTG
SBTG strikes again, this time in honor of the late great Michael Jackson . DJ Inquisitive linked up with the king of customs to pay homage to the king of pop via these Converse All-Stars. The wonderfully crafted shoes feature a distressed upper and sole complete with claw marks and scuffs. The zipper tongues are tough and Royalefam branding tags the tongue. They released Sept 5th in Singapore but chances are slim that you can get your hands on a pair. Via KickOnFire
