BATHING APE MONOGRAM CAPSULE.
Japan’s near-ubiqutious BAPE label has now set itself back on a more familiar course by launching a new collection of monogrammed leather goods. Consisting of belts and wallets emblazoned with the brand’s name and logo, the three-piece collection — which feature’s none of BAPE’s instantly-recognisable camo print — is still an interesting left turn in to minimalist territory and an understated route to adding some slickness to your accessories stockpile.Available now and coming in at $284 USD, you can pick up the Monogram Leather Collection direct from the brand’s web store. If you’re after something more traditionally BAPE, check out the 2017 Fall/Winter collection.
MISTER CARTOON X NIKE CORTEZ.
Mr. Cartoon and Nike have produced a new collaborative capsule collection that should make the city proud. The swoosh Allowed Cartoon, born Mark Machado, to add his flair to three Cortez silhouettes. Cartoon’s Cortez collection features a white, navy, and black model — each with varying hand drawn details related to the L.A. street lifestyle the artist personifies. Each shoe in the capsule comes with a custom metal CTOONS piece and while the black pair features a Swoosh with Old English L.A. lettering, the white pair has no Nike check at all; instead it reads “Cortez” in cursive. Both the black and white versions have a commemorative 45th anniversary tag on the tongue. The navy blue Cortez is less decorative but still contains a quilted pattern resembling the stitching inside of a Chevy Impala. Mr. Cartoon’s capsule collection will launch at Nice Kick’s DTLA store on July 13 before being made available for $120 USD via nike.com, SNKRS app and select Nike stockists on July 14.

Just recently, the Swoosh introduced the Air Force 1 High in a plush “Indigo/Gum” colorway. Check out the eye-catching gamut above and expect an official release on July 17 at NIKEiD’s official website.
ASICS GEL-LYTE V "NO SEW".ASICS’ Gel-Lyte V is next in line to receive a slight change. The latest “No Sew” iteration removes as much stitching as possible in exchange for fused layers. Its white base is complemented by black and purple detailing which can be found on its tongue, heel and logos on each side. ASICS branding can also be found on its heel, tongue and sides to close out the colorway. The ASICS Gel-Lyte V “No Sew” is expected to hit shelves later this summer for cool comfort.
