10 December 2008, 17.40 | Posted in Skateboarding, Sneakers | No comments »

Just like many other US brands, also Lakai produces a special collection for the Japanese market that comes out with lots of interesting styles every season. Here we give you a look at the Manchester Select and the Carroll Select that have just come out at Mita.

The Lakai Manchester Select looks great. All red upper, white details – a super clean sneaker that you can wear with pretty much anything. About the Carroll Select we are less excited. Black patent leather upper and all-over design just seems like it was something that worked yesteryear.

You can have a look after the jump.

eS x Adrian Blanca Traveling Art Exhbition – New York Recap

17 November 2008, 21.36 | Posted in Skateboarding | No comments »

Eight countries, 5,000 eyes, hundreds of paint brushes, thousands of hours of painting, 6,500 glasses of Sangria and beer, 3,000 tapas and almost 7,000 miles later, the éS Adrian Blanca Traveling Art Exhibition has come to an end.

For the last three months, Adrian Blanca has been on a whirlwind art tour to celebrate his collaboration with éS. At each tour stop, spectators were able to watch Adrian create his visual madness live with permanent installations fashioned in all eight locations: One Off in Stockholm, Arrival departure in Amsterdam, Slam City Skates in London, Street Machine in Paris, Fish and Chips in Antwerp, Doubleight in Munich and the éS showroom in Barcelona. The tour finally concludes on US soil at the éS Showroom in New York City.

Adrian first picked up a skateboard in the mid-’90s, and this love for skateboard culture can be seen in his incredibly intricate drawings that he has created over the years for a number of influential magazines and prominent galleries in Europe. A true fan of éS for years—in particular the Accel, which he has used on numerous occasions as a canvas for his art—it came as no surprise that Adrian chose to launch his collection with the Acell TTL and TT Deluxe

The éS x Adrian Blanca exhibition is open daily from 12:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. and runs thru Friday, November 21, 2008 at the éS Showroom on 29 Greene St. in NYC.

Many more images and a video made up of over 500 artworks by the artist follow after the jump.

Nike SB Dunk Low Brazil Custom Series

11 November 2008, 17.30 | Posted in Skateboarding, Sneakers | No comments »

Here on Highsnobiety we’ve spent considerable time linking elements of culture and discussing how trends and styles move over place and time. Music, as we’ve established, is one of the great catalysts. For the latest series of Brazil Custom Nike SB Dunk Low, the Brazilian trio of Rodrigo Peterson, Cezar Gordo and Fabio Cristiano have followed on this thought. Well, not directly from us! But, they have drawn inspiration from the Walkman and given it salute as THE pre-ipod era music box for the skater.

Each of the trio picked one element of the walkman to highlight on their shoe. Peterson chose the walkman itself, Gordo the headphones, and finally, Cristiano the cassette tape. Together they tell a full tale of the entanglement of skate and sound. At least on the surface…
