State-of-the-art innovation meets traditional craftsmanship in the Nike Football Rebento duffle bag. The 3D printed base combines with a premium leather upper in a bold expression of technology and style. Designed for the game’s best players, only three bags have been created and will be carried by Neymar Jr., Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo this summer in Brazil. Each bag features custom gold hardware with the player’s name. The bag references the stud plate of two groundbreaking Nike football boots—the Magista and Mercurial—with a unique graphic on the base of the bag. Taking cues from the Nike Flyknit pattern of the Magista and Mercurial, the laser-sintered nylon creates an intertwined weave on the bag’s 3D printed base. The 3D print also gives the bag body and creates a lightweight, yet durable structure that allows for flex. Handcrafted, premium leather is used on the bag’s upper and straps, which seamlessly fits into the 3D printed base without the use of glue or adhesive.

Mishka has just published its Summer ’14 Lookbook, which features select pieces from Mishka’s newest collection. It is a bold and vibrant representation of this season’s ecstatic aesthetic. The lookbook is inspired by the sunnier side of the deep web and a brighter version of Net Art.
The Mishka Summer ’14 Lookbook tells an electric and eclectic story. This season finds Mishka’s aesthetic sensibilities coming full circle; we are treated to a range of classic and new graphics that bolster and extend Mishka’s visual vocabulary. Mishka’s iconic and uncompromising vision is realized in patterns that recall the unbridled chaos and excitement of a sweltering New York City summer. The clothing is complemented by a lookbook that accentuates the cut-n-paste pastiche culture in which we currently live.

Started by Shayne Oliver back in 2006, he told The New York Times, “The name Hood By Air is a play off being from the hood, but taking the train downtown to hang out with skater boys and artists.” He went on to tell Swagger New York, “It came from going to underground parties, and we used to freestyle on the mics.
And one night I was reciting something, and that came out and kinda stuck with me as an aesthetic and a way of living. It’s also like owning your influence on the world… make the world understand what you’re doing and why what you’re doing is so important.”

NIGO points to the 1968 film Planet of the Apes as a source of inspiration. Additionally, in speaking with CNN back in 2006, he commented that “it was meant to be sarcastic. The name ‘A Bathing Ape’ is short for a Japanese saying ‘a bathing ape in lukewarm water.’ It’s a reference to the young generation being spoiled, pampered and too complacent.” Thus, the name is a slight jab/critique on the laziness and opulence of the generation of youths who consumed his products.
