The Ralph Lauren teddy bear has become an icon and every piece of clothing from RL featuring the bear an iconic collectors piece. Being absent these recent years, the brand has just announced that it will be bringing back the Polo Bear Sweater.
Along with the announcement comes the news that you all can vote on which bear design to return. Polo offers up an array of graphics with the iconic teddy bear and on their RL Vintage website you can choose your favorite, the one that you want to come back.
A man with many talents, known as the creative director of DONDA, the style adviser of Kanye West and co-owner of Chicago lifestyle boutique RSVP Gallery, Virgil Abloh is slowly but steadily also adding the designer title to his long list of occupations.
Today his brand PYREX VISION has released a video lookbook for its sophomore collection for Spring/Summer 2013, entitled “Youth Always Wins”.
“From American designer, Virgil Abloh.
The winner will always be young.
It’s all based of his high school experience. Pusha-T drug raps. Champion gym uniforms. Caravaggio obsession. Micheal Jordan as God. Kurt cobain felt the most real. Black kid with white tendencies.
Being self-taught was the extent of his art education. Added help from living and breathing youth street skate culture combined with living in Rome and Paris.
YOUTH WINS GAMES no matter the sport. Pavement. Concrete.
Models casted from Harlem to Amsterdam to represent the YOUTH. The next.”
Made up of bold logo pieces for the most part, Abloh worked with a set number of color palettes for the new collection. The line features shorts, t-shirts, plaid shirts, caps and more, everything coming with a slightly oversized fit. Modeled by A$AP Barri, A$AP Nast, A$AP Josh, A$AP Illz, Ian Connor and Nayle Junior, the collection is now available at RSVP Gallery.
Pharrell Williams discusses art and design with Craig Robins at Design Miami 2012. Kanye West makes an unexpected appearance during the Q&A, followed by a book signing for ”Places and Spaces I’ve Been.”
For the Spring/Summer 2013, French streetwear-influenced brand Givenchy pays some homage to an American pop icon with their upcoming collection. The brand decided to give us a whole collection dedicated to jack of all trades, superstar Madonna. Givenchy brings a variety of hoodies and T-shirts all featuring Madonna-inspired graphics, in a range of styles and colorways.
The Givenchy Spring/Summer 2013 Madonna Collection is currently available in its entirety over at LuisaViaRoma online store.

One of the most satisfying things about blogging is discovering creative new brands like the following one. JVP Melbourne (founded by Jason Vincent Piperno) creates very flashy t-shirts/tees in bold colours and huge abstract graphics. From red roses over feathers to ancient historical scenes which were mirrored. A couple of the styles are almost all over prints, so they are closer to a pattern than to a graphic. The only bad news we got is mostly everything is sold out! But we found the pieces so creative that we decided to share the brand! We assumed that these were just normal cotton tees but they’re polyester, which may explain the $100 price tags. That along with the face that the tees are very rare and limited. We look forward to seeing some more of their upcoming pieces. via Le3rd
