ION THE PRIZE | ORIGINAL PENGUIN

THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED. CONGRATS TO THE WINNERS!

ION THE PRIZE | KUWALLA TEE

This month we are giving away a couple of amazing three-packs from Kuwalla Tee. Kuwalla Tees are fashioned with the finest raw materials to give you that ridiculous softness and lasting comfort. You no longer have to suffer cheap t-shirts that quickly lose their color and form. Further more, the t-shirts are packaged in salvaged material from the production of the shirts so that you can feel the material that is used. And if that is not enough, 1% of sales are donated to an environmental charity.

COMUNE | WMNS A/W 2013 Sneak Peek

We've been fans of COMUИE since its inception, and although the guys have been able to sport the line, the ladies have been adoring from the sidelines.  But not for long. Soon women will be able to embrace COMUИE with its first womenswear collection launching this fall. 

ION THE PRIZE | GSUS JEANS

For the holiday season, we are giving away a pair of men's jeans by gsus. Yeah, yeah, the irony is not lost on us.

Tell us why they should be yours in the comments below. Good luck!

Judson Beaumont | Tree Lights

Judson Beaumont, of Vancouver's Straight Lines Design, has created these amazing stools and tables out of trees. Tree Rings are created using split Pine Beetle wood, which is then covered with a colored resin top. During the day, they look like a regular stump table, but at night, they become illuminated with light glowing through the resin, showing of the ring pattern.

OTRO | Glow In The Dark Skatepark

Korean born artist, Koo Jeong A, collaborated with Belgian architect firm, L'escaut, to create an art installation composed of different bowls, a cradle and a tunnel, that also doubles as a skatepark. Located on Vassivière Island in France, the installation titled OTRO, is a daring skateable artwork that glows-in-the-dark. Koo Jeong A invites novices and experts to share the physical and sensory experience of her work by “skating the landscape” 24 hours a day.

Machinegrems

For the launch of their Citiscape range of new street style headphones, Philips asked renowned French urban artist, graphicist, illustrator, and rapper Grems to etch three limited addition collector’s box sets to house them. Not content with tickling your proverbial visual taste buds, they asked NYC’s own electro maestro Machinedrum, a.k.a. Travis Stewart, founder of the Merck label, to pen three exclusive tracks to go alongside.

Liberty of London X Doc Martens

Liberty of London x Doc Martens collaboration
Wild Nature, the collabo between two of Britain’s beloved and quintessential fashion institutions not only marks the Olympics, but does it in a style that we really love. Available worldwide at Doc Martens stores, it takes the classic boot and adds Liberty’s trademark refined style to their rebellious reputation with an eighties floral twist. Quite literally a walking paradox. Grab a pair, as well as exclusively designed leather satchels, from June 1st.
