Hypebeast:

As we all know, Michael Jordan is the majority owner of the Charlotte Hornets, and as a result, we get to see some pretty fly Air Jordans inspired by the franchise.

This time around, the iconic Air Jordan 1 features a wonderful combination of purple, teal and white, making for a solid drop. Unfortunately however, this is slated to be a China-only release, which is why the brand has opted for a rather peculiar nickname for this model, considering it’s colorway.

Feng Shui is a “Chinese term that translates to wind-water in English, and is a philosophical system of uniting the mind, body and soul with the surrounding environment,” says Sole Collector.

The Air Jordan 1 “Feng Shui” will hit select Chinese stockists starting October 10.

Michael Jordan will take his trademark dispute case to China’s highest court

Michael Jordan will take his trademark case against Qiaodan Sports to China’s supreme court. The company had built its reputation around the former Chicago Bulls superstar without his consent, imitating the player’s signature persona with his Chinese name “Qiaodan” and famed jersey number “23.”

Jordan first sued the Fujian province-based sportswear company in 2012, but the local courts ruled in the opposition’s favor. The decision was upheld by the Beijing Municipal High People’s Court, causing the shoe magnate to appeal the case to Supreme People’s Court for retrial.

It’s hard not to think of Hong Kong without visualizing its dazzling display of neon signs that have inspired the futuristic cityscapes of classic science-fiction films such as Blade Runner and Ghost in the Shell. With their gradual filtering out, as they are either being replaced with LED screens or removed altogether due to new city regulations regarding light pollution, M+ (Hong Kong’s future museum for visual culture in the West Kowloon Cultural District) has launched NEONSIGNS.HK, an interactive online exhibition that documents, discusses and explores the culture behind the city’s neon signs, the aim of which is to both record and preserve this key feature of the city’s urban landscape.

Visitors to the NEONSIGNS.HK website can explore its diverse content related to various aspects of the neon-light culture through an array of video documentaries, essays and of course the interactive Neon Map, a tool that allows anyone to add pictures of his or her favourite Hong Kong neon signs. Developed by pill & pillow, who collaborated with gardens&co for its graphic design, the beautifully executed website’s content also features dozens of the signs that have been pinned on its map, including the famous Bank of China Tower, a true Hong Kong landmark, which is particularly impressive. In addition to the above, Aric Chen and Tobias Berger, the project’s curators, have also added offline activities, such as bus tours, workshops and talks.
