Nike KAWS Air Jordan 4 Black.


Just a few months ago Nike and KAWS dropped a Air Jordan 4 in wolf grey suede, with a glow in the dark sole, and lots of yummy details.  It  sold out in seconds, and the resale market imedeately lit up like crazy.  In fact thats not  true, the resale market was already on fire, with eBay auctions selling the Kaws Air Jordan a week before launch for £1,000, with hopefuls looking to cash in on their purchases as soon as they were lucky enough to click faster than the bots.

As of Monday November 27th, the friends and family exclusive, blacked out suede construction of the same shoe, will be available to buy.  Expect them to cost around £200, expect them  to sell out in seconds, expect to not own a pair.

Virgil Abloh OFF WHITE Nike Cap.


Following the sell out success of "the ten" Nike OFF WHITE sneakers, which has seen all ten of them being resold for up to thousands, it was kinda inevitable that we will see more pieces from the pair.

This rather low key offering echoes the cotton tote bag given at the Nike OFF WHITE event, black, with the Swoosh, and the legend on all the shoes on the front of the hat.

The first run of 30 has sold out, and initial prices were £25, so Nike pricing, before selling for hundreds on the resale market.  However good news is, keep an eye on Nike and OFF WHITE, as there will be another release.

For a while now Rado have been collaborating with various designers in order to create special edition timepieces known as the "true designers" collection.  With each watch designed by a different architect or industry luminary, and each given a different moniker.  From Polish Architect Oscar Zieta comes the "True Face"

Gently concave in structure, the dial of the True Face consists of a disc of stainless steel that has been polished to achieve a mesmerizing reflective finish.  The reflective properties of the dial are further maximised by the addition of an unexpected detail; The underside of the matt grey hands have been given a rose gold-coloured finish, allowing the hands to be reflected in a different hue.

The technical details of the piece are water resistance to 50m, ceramic case, 40mm size, sapphire crystal glass, and a retail price of £1,760.  Available now.
