In the latest high-profile collaboration from A Bathing Ape, the streetwear staple aligns with Snoopy and the Peanuts gang for a follow-up from earlier this year. Some of the more memorable pieces can be seen along the lines of A Bathing Ape’s signature camo pattern that welcomes a resting Snoopy integrated into the motif.

Elsewhere, graphic-driven T-shirts include varying instances of Snoopy and BAPE branding while a vinyl toy rounds out the collection.

Designer Ronnie Fieg continues his storied partnership with ASICS as the two renew their relationship for their latest collaborative endeavor: “Rose Gold” and Sage editions of the Gel Lyte V. Amassing 10 different materials between the two, the release sees an updated and reimagined take on the “Rose Gold” colorway that graced the GT-II at the hands of Fieg back in 2012. This time around the colorway sees the addition of a second Pantone to the crossing stripes for a bit more depth while the 3M formstripes are asymmetrical–white on the lateral side and blue on the medial.

Joining the “Rose Gold” Gel Lyte V is a “Sage” edition of the retro trainer. Decked out in premium pigskin and combining a micro-perforated sage-colored vamp with sea green overlays, the kicks sport hits of premium white leather while an open mesh material amplifies the silhouette’s unique sock liner. Rounding out the look are aqua blue formstripes and subtle safari print detailing.

Retailing for $170 USD each, the “Rose Gold” and “Sage” editions of the ASICS Gel Lyte V will be available this Saturday, August 30 at 11 a.m. EDT at Kith‘s 66 Bleecker St. pop-up, Kith Brooklyn at 233 Flatbush, and KithNYC.com.

While we were spending our summer drenched in pools of our own sweat, 19-year-old Atlanta-based Artist Savannah Burgess was hard at work creating a masterpiece. She spent a good chunk of her summer creating an epic drawing of the 12 animals of the Chinese Zodiac.

The best part is, Burgess uploaded images following her progress as she worked on this 30” x 44” (76cm x 1.1m) drawing. Each picture highlights a different animal in the composition, which comes together into one epic art pieces.

LG has officially debuted the G Watch R, the successor to the electronic giant’s original G Watch. Improving upon the original design, the G Watch R features a more traditional circular case housing a 1.3-inch plastic OLED display. Internally, the watch doesn’t differ much from the original; the battery has been slightly uprated, while the processor is the same 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon with 512MB of RAM and 4GB of memory. What is new is the watch’s heart rate monitor, which should allow this watch to double as a fitness tracker.

Expect the G Watch R to reach retailers sometime in October or November.

Japanese Art: “Hitofude Ryuu”- single-brushstroke dragons

 

The serpentine dragon is a staple element of the mythology of many different cultures in Asia, so it’s not surprising that its powerful, writhing form has captured the imagination of many artists there. Some talented artists have even mastered the art of ‘Hitofude Ryuu’, or of creating beautiful, multi-colored dragon bodies in a single brushstroke.

Each dragon takes more than one stroke, obviously – the head, whiskers, and other details come separately. But the fact that the body is done in one graceful and hypnotizing stroke is still amazing. The artists in these videos are from a small Japanese studio called Kousyuuya, but there are many artists in the region who have mastered this graceful and difficult art.
