Haze x G-Shock – 30th Anniversary in NYC

Eric Haze truly inspires me so much.  A visionary, a revolutionary, and most importantly, an incredible artist.  Haze was one of the originators, who took his love for graffiti and hip-hop culture and brought it into the concept of skate, surf, and consumer culture.  His style is something I admire and try to emulate every day; understated simplicity in the more artistic way.  Arrows and stars, clean handwriting, pure creativity.

G-Shock and prolific artist Haze will present a major exhibition and release event in downtown Manhattan this Friday. With support of Casio, the artist organized a 25 year retrospective of the HAZE brand, which includes a variety of product collaborations with various brands along the way. The opening is set to feature the launch of the 4th signature “HAZE x G-Shock” model, which will be the first release of the brand’s 30th anniversary collection. The exhibition is set to include framed silkscreens, embroideries, baseball caps, clothing, footwear, furniture, toys, and more. The opening will be held this Friday night at SOLO on 40 Broad Street in New York City, and features this video produced by Haze and Showcobra going through 25 years of archives in preparation for the show.

True Artistry. Smooth.

Get Sylvester: Barcelona (Episode 1)

Following in the homie Levi Maestro’s footsteps, New York native and professional BMX rider Nigel Sylvester gives us his debut of his new online webshow entitled, “Get Sylvester.”  Nigel takes a tour around Barcelona, Spain living it up with his boys while riding out some nice new spots along the way.  This film really inspires me to stay genuine and to have fun with the people around me, no matter what the circumstances.  The editing is really clean and I love the use of the black and white. I’ll be sure to post more of these episodes to keep you guys updated.  For now, keep it smoovin’.

The Hundreds New York x Penny Skateboards

First introduced in 1983, the plastic Penny skateboard is as much an institution in the history of skateboarding as maple wood itself. The Hundreds New York have collaborated with the original Australian brand Penny to create a limited edition, CMYK-inspired colorway of the beloved Penny skateboard. In this Zack McTee edit, watch as The Hundreds put the board through its paces on the New York City streets, Lords of Dogtown style. Being a growing part of the New York skate scene, we felt some of our fans would love to take a look at this video.  The board will retail for $120 USD, but production is limited to only 400 pieces worldwide; Check the official The Hundreds’ stockist list to see if the exclusive Penny will be available at your local retailer beginning Thursday, February 16. This is just one more reason why The Hundreds continues to be one of my biggest inspirations in the streetwear game.  Product Information Via Hypebeast.com
