This watch actually has fossilized dinosaur bone in the dial and also makes the band in a rust colored galuchat to match. It has diamond cut baguettes on the bezel and lugs as well. I'm not really into diamonds in my watches but the fossilized dinosaur bone is definitely a cool feature. Look for this timepiece to be released soon.
Speaking of Nigo, I posted these shoes before but I found images of another pair of wingtips with the bape star emblem on the toe cap. The loafers have mustache shapes and seem to be patent leather from the pictures. These are supposedly going to be released on March 25th.
Pharrell Williams and Moncler collaborate on these pieces for the Fall/Winter 2010. The camo design was designed by Japanese artist Keita Sugiura. The pieces are made out of a special fabric called Bionic Yarn. Pharrell is such an inspiration to what I do. He is one half of the superproduction team the Neptunes and the lead singer of the alternative group N.E.R.D. As well as being part owner of his own clothing line Billionaire Boys Club/Ice Cream (a high end Japanese streetwear clothing brand made by Nigo of A Bathing Ape fame). He was also one of the first artists to do a collaboration with Louis Vuitton with the Millionaire Sunglasses (pictured on him) and the Blason Jewelry Collection.
Rolls Royce are keeping there look for the Phantom for another 6 years! This classic looking car and my favorite car all around is just making minor changes to the features each year and not to the body style. They really don't have to change anything because it is perfect as it is.
The YSL x Net-A-Porter Exclusive Tribute Suede Sandals in Magenta are buzzing all over the internet. They are a Saks 5th Ave. exclusive so hurry up and get your order immediately ladies because these aren't going to be around for long. I'm not sure of their release but I will keep you posted.

You can now pre-order this classic book about Ivy Style from 1965 at Amazon.com but the only bad thing is that it doesn't get re-released until August 31!

Here a few images that I found for your viewing pleasure. You can pre-order it now at Amazon.com for $20 Buy here!
D.S. Dundee's new Autumn/Winter 2010 collection lookbook has a lot of nice pieces to look forward to. Now I don't love everything but there is definitely some worthwhile pieces in here like those two-tone cardigans and their wool jackets too. That model reminds me of my Uncle Junior Circa 1970's except his beard wasn't that out of control!
I personally am not a fan of Timberland, not because of their quality, just because of their popularity here in New York alone. But these came out pretty nice. The navy ones are my favorite from this collection. No info yet on when or where they will be released but I will keep you posted.
