  • Steak Frites – Vermont to Shanghai

    387608642820911125

    The good homie, Jack Moore, has been throwing art shows back in Vermont for a while now under the moniker Steak Frites. He used to live out here in Shanghai a couple years back and has been back visiting us for the last month or so. The dude’s been getting busy while out here, doing board graphics, displaying paintings at Push Fest and surfing couches like the seasoned pro he is.

    This Friday at FLY Streetwear, we have a Steak Frites pop-up event with work from 50, Bilal, Jack Moore, JMART, Ryan Nimmo and Sally Zou. I’ll be premiering my Official Tissue year-end remix video as well. The video will be a bunch of footage you’ve already seen, re-chopped & re-screwed, plus some new unseen clips and b-sides.

    KRZA will be there playing music while you responsibly sip free beers from Vedett.

    It’s all going down this Friday, December 16th at FLY Streetwear – 704 Changle Lu, near Fumin Lu 长乐路704号, 近富民路.

    Big shoutout to FLY, Converse and Vedett for the support.

    It’s been a big year for two great brands. Brooks England teamed up with Taka Hayahsi’s Vault by Vans in celebration of their respective 150th and 50th Year Anniversary’s. This unique collection of cycling saddles and footwear speaks to Brooks’ innovative and timeless designs while blending Vans’ American heritage with a nod to southwestern inspirations.

    Spanning a relationship that dates back 10 years now, creative designer Taka Hayashi, has helped elevate some of the brands most revered silhouettes to new heights. His collaboration with Brooks England is a unique balance of two culturally rich brands and their respective monumental anniversaries. Both Vans and Brooks England share a commitment to quality, superior craftsmanship and attention to detail.

    The Brooks x Vault by Vans partnership extends from footwear to a deluxe set of Brooks accessories; all of which feature laser-etched artwork and intricate detailing using slightly different techniques. The sneakers are designed using a laser etching process to maintain the detailed design work and craftsmanship. The Swift motif on the saddle is applied with a molded emboss plate, which is a very unique process.
