40'S & SHORTIES
Based out of Los Angeles, 40's & Shorties started in 2013 by a group of close friends. The brand quickly gained notoriety by placing iconic and humorous content on premium accessories, mainly socks and boxer shorts. The no-holds approach to design, and independent attitude of the company has made the brand a favorite in the street and skate market.
Quickview NATURE WORLD, TEES
Founded in 2013 by Andre and Antwon of the Nature World collective as a streetwear brand that encapsulates the aesthetics of Punk and “Street”, bridging the gap between the two cultures that influenced the artists in the collective. Sleek and simple designs give way to contrasting imagery with complex ideology. A true subculture brand for the modern jams.

Perhaps an insane understatement, but everyone loves dope shit, and the people that are drawn most to anything aesthetically outstanding are those that get high – for obvious reasons. Australian-based paraphernalia brand Gatorbeug has hit all the marks when it comes to creating dope af shit, and they’ve tailored it for just right right audience by specialising in ceramic and glass bongs that look unlike anything you’ve seen before.
California’s Good Worth is in the business of making objects infinitely cool. Pins, accessories, and staple streetwear pieces, Good Worth has built a name that covers a wide landscape. Not only to they have the depth of product but they do it well, and more importantly, they do it different.
Here is a bit of genius you don’t stumble across everyday. It’s like that old saying ‘real recognises real’ or ‘party and bullshit’. In this case, less bullshit, lots of party and straight to the point. Art, simple statements, great product and a good laugh.
Probably one of the most anticipated books of the year. Bury Me with the Lo On,” by the rapper Thirstin Howl III and the photographer Tom Gould is a salute to the Brooklyn street crews locally famous for wearing nothing but Polo Ralph Lauren.
The contemporary artist FACE aka Your Face Down is an artist with pizazz. While to describe a typical artwork may be difficult, the work automatically speaks for the artist itself.
Having grown up in the 80’s in the midst of the international skate craze, he belonged to the second generation of Italian skaters that predated the current “street” phenomenon.
RHEK – the multi talented creative, shop owner and loud mouth personality. It’s never dull when there is RHEK or was it life is always better when there is RHEK. Both statements true.
VICTORIA – named after Hong Kong’s harbour – brings something fresh to a city that is often remembered for it’s cookie cutter brands and mega skyline. Having lived there myself, there are far too few local brands that are really hitting the mark (when considering the scale of the city). It’s funny because Hong Kong is a place renowned for its retail – yet there are few brands that we can celebrate. Not the case here.
HIPPIE SEX is the next young cab of the rank. Fundamentally streetwear, with a blast from the past. The collection builds on the mixture of comfort and nostalgia with California roots. They have a nice range of apparel, accessories and homeware products.
Shark Week – not to be confused with your favourite show on Animal Planet – is probably the best thing we have come across since the days of oversized basket ball jerseys, country grammar and gilets..not with out mention of the one and only Fashion Killa!
Doug Rickard is the founder of American Suburb X and These Americans (T.A), aggregating websites on contemporary photography and American historical and cultural photographic archives. In our views, artist Doug has really set a bench mark for a well curated brand, that obsesses with desire, fetish and American culture. The archive, which is loaded with radical content from the 50’s, feels more like a museum than a titilating porn experience.
We had the pleasure of sitting down with the talented artist Laurent Segretier. Laurent has been a house hold name in Hong Kong for quite some time, cementing himself firmly amongst the top tier of international artists living in the city. We recently caught up with him during Art Basel where he was showcasing his latest project with Beijing’s LEAP magazine.
Cey Adams, a New York City native, emerged from the downtown graffiti movement to exhibit alongside fellow artists Jean-Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring. He appeared in the historic 1982 PBS documentary Style Wars which tracks subway graffiti in New York.
Last week we lost one of the greats. We grew up to his music and rhymes. Phife Dawg from the group A Tribe Called Quest recently passed away after a long battle with diabetes. His life impacted Hip Hop in a monumental way.
