27 October 2008, 19.18 | Posted in Fashion, Skateboarding | 2 comments »

We present you the Acapulco Gold Fall/Winter 2008 collection. The New York brands has always understood well creating collections with strong messages, while keeping the design subtle and on point. That is also the case in their new Fall/Winter 2008 offering.

The collection consists of t-shirts, caps and skateboards. The t-shirt offering is large and each design comes in several colorways. T-Shirts and caps hind at housing names and their respective nicknames. Caps range from New Era caps to 5-panel caps and snapback caps, all looking very good this season. “Aurum”, the slogan featured on some New Era caps, is latin and stands for Gold, going along the on-going higher education theme of the brand. The skatedecks make as usual a strong statement, this season a take on the financial crisis with a nice addition of sarcasm to it.

Take a detailed look at the Acapulco Gold Fall/Winter 2008 collection after the jump.

09 October 2008, 22.58 | Posted in Fashion, Skateboarding, Sneakers | 1 comment »

Long time friends Keith Hufnagel and Ray Mate from Mighty Healthy NYC got together with DVS to work on a line of clothing and sneakers. The line consists of several apparel pieces including a reversible grey and black vest, branded T-shirts, as well as two custom colorized shoe designs—the Huf 5 Runner and the Huf 5 mid. The color scheme used in the line, according to Mate, was inspired by the colors of Xavier High School—a Jesuit school located in the Chelsea Neighborhood in Manhattan that Huf attended growing up. Via DVS/CtotheJL.

The product begins shipping in early November and can be found in select skate shops throughout the world.

On a side note, the interview also mentions that Huf is opening a retail outlet in Tokyo, Japan, this year. Seems like we still have to look out for that.
