It was only a couple of months ago that Bodega and Saucony released a collaborative Elite G9 collection and now the Boston retailer and the American shoe company are back at it with another round of Elite G9 models. Back again is the G9 Shadow 5 and this time it’s joined by the G9 Control in two new colorways. The G6, like the last time around, come in a bold colorway that mixes plenty of clashing colors along with leopard print for a look all its own. The first G9 Control colorway is predominantly grey with hits of navy, purple and tan. The second G9 Colorway, a Bodega-exclusive, features a predominantly purple make-up with black, navy, orange, and camo elements along with a speckled and beige midsole. Dubbed the “Captain Purp” colorway, just 85 pairs will be released. Look for all three colorways in-store and online on May 4.

Often synonymous in many ways, music and fashion have long been close relatives of one another. Through the years, certain facets and trends within the fashion sector have become reflective and almost solely defined by a genre or category of music. While the lines have become more and more blurred in the digital age, there was a time when the type of music one listened to virtually defined how they dressed.
With their own ethos often influenced by various facets of music, UK’s The Goodhood Store has created a rather innovative and unconventional lookbook of items from their inventory. Inspired by a retrospective look back at musical subcultures and the fashions that defined them, The Goodhood Store executed a unique lookbook titled, “As Worn By.” Featuring sketches and artwork by Clara Lacy, the simple image set features key music icons such as Axel Rose, Ian Curtis, Kurt Cobain, Malcolm McClaren, and Henry Rollins wearing key styles from The Goodhood Store. All of the items are now available through the store’s online shop here.
While residents in California may not think twice about their living environment, for many Japanese people, it represents an all-American lifestyle that they have fallen in love with.

The tight-knit crew consisted of Neil Hartmann behind the video camera, Shunya Arai as a photographer, and stylist Ryoji Homma, who got together to create this beautiful Spring/Summer 2013 collection lookbook video. Titled Trip Your Travel, the short film follows a lone man on a journey through California.
Matix has held its roots firm in Los Angeles since its inception. Combining the realm of skate and surf together under one inspiration, the brand’s ongoing philosophy has been to present itself through a range of easily understood and relevant pieces. Never to take itself too seriously, the lookbook is further accentuated by the video below.
