Unfortunately Steve Jobs never got to enjoy this amazing yacht named “Venus”, which was given the name after the Roman goddess of love and beauty. “Venus” is roughly 230 to 260 feet long and has a 100% aluminum body which makes it one of the lightest water vessels of its size. What will be done with the yacht hasn’t been announced yet but we’re sure it will go to a great cause. Click HERE for more information.
Every season we introduce a number of staple designs in new colors, as well as brand new designs inspired by the theme of that season. Though we love every one of our designs equally, there is one Fall line design that has been getting a lot of attention. Rather than just showing off the shirt, we wanted to add to our blog in-depth looks into our designs. We start this segment by telling the story behind the “Garfield” tee.
Garfield is a drifter, originally from the island of St. Thomas that now lives on the streets of Seattle. Though homeless, he had a personality and a pearly white smile that could light up any room. After agreeing to take the photo, he asked if it was alright to wear the crown he had with him. With his last bit of money that day Garfield bought a crown believing he would need it for a special moment, and this was his special moment. He was so happy to be having this moment despite the fact that he was homeless. When asked about that he said, “God blessed me with life, what more do I need?”
Garfield is a true example of living rich. Life is his Kingdom, and Garfield is king. #LiveRich
Marc Jacobs has been going collab crazy over at Louis Vuitton as of late, and this is just the latest in a great string of collaborations including another Japanese designer, Takashi Murakami. Yasoi Kusama is the next in line, and the luxury brand decided to team up with the 82 year-old artist for this special collection. The collection officially released back in July, and we decided to give you some more info about it now.
Kusama is famous for her use of dots in many designs for her fashion pieces, and this collection will incorporate that ideal to the fullest. The pieces all look fantastic, and provide a very iconic and unique twist to the legendary Louis Vuitton damier pattern.
Visit the Louis Vuitton x Kusama site for more details on the artist and the collection itself. Also peep below a video of the huge statue made for SelfRidge’s pop-up shop in London.

my role was to create a robust graphic asset library that the good folks at attik then refined into a visual identity system (VIS). this VIS was then passed along to agencies around the world to work with for their regional campaigns.
the first phase of art was to create this hyper detailed, abstract rendition of COCA COLA LONDON 2012. from this master file we extracted dozens of ‘moments’ that became the graphic asset library._ Source
Been a huge fan of the camo stuff lately so I had to post this jacket when I saw it today. No price has been named yet for the garment but should be available soon. Look for the 1st Camo Snowboard jacket to drop from Bathing Ape early in 2012.
If you haven’t heard, Mercedes is done producing these cars but this is what they came up with for the final design. If you’re going to go out in a big way this is how you do it. The new G class is sure to turn heads.
Here’s what the German car maker had to say about the new and final G class BA3 coming out.
“Two variants will be available: in the G 350 BlueTEC a 6-cylinder diesel engine with the very latest BlueTEC emissions control, 155 kW (211 hp) and 540 newton metres for great pulling power both on and off the road. In the G 500 a powerful 5.5-litre V8 petrol engine with 285 kW (388 hp) and 530 newton metres effortlessly performs the same function.
Both special models of this classic among Mercedes-Benz off-roaders are equipped with the same high-performance drive and dynamic handling control systems. Alongside the permanent all-wheel drive with off-road ratio and the 7G-TRONIC seven-speed automatic transmission, the standard specification includes the electronically controlled traction system 4ETS, the Electronic Stability Program ESP® and three differential locks with 100-percent locking effect selectable at the push of a button.
Externally Mercedes-Benz has significantly upgraded the “BA3 Final Edition”. AMG flared wheel arches in the vehicle colour, in combination with 5-twin-spoke light-alloy wheels and tyre size 265/60 R 18, underline the striking appearance of the special model. Running boards and a spare wheel cover with a 3D Mercedes-Benz star in stainless steel, as well as an AMG radiator grille in a 3-louvre design with chrome highlights, emphasise its exceptional position in the range. Standard features also include an electric sliding/tilting sunroof, metallic paintwork, rear mudflaps, carbon-fibre look inserts in the protective strips, an ultrasonic reversing aid and a tyre pressure monitoring system.”
