Jerry was always an interesting kid growing up. Instead of thinking “outside the box”, his teachers would regularly comment on how they weren’t sure Jerry saw a box at all. Rather than trying to bash the square block through the triangle hole, he would take apart the toy and defend the mess that was left behind as a work of abstract expressionism.
HNDSM gave Jerry a selection of our bracelets and stepped back. He came up with alternative ways to use them, which we have documented here for your study.

Original Fake is now wrapping up its final season after a very successful run since 2006. The brand surprised fans with the announcement of its doors closing voluntarily in 2013. The brand and its collectibles will undoubtedly be sought after in the years ahead as the final quantities disappear.
You may recognize the Passing Through Companion from its massive counterpart’s appearances in key American cities.
Today Haven released a final restock of the KAWS Companion (Passing Through) in three colorway options. It is undoubtedly one of the best versions of the Companion and a small window of opportunity to own a piece from Original Fake’s final season.
Available now at Haven.

Givenchy’s Madonna imagery has been popular on several styles including the brand’s graphic t-shirts and satin sweatshirts. One of our favourite mediums for the motif is Givenchy’s athletic-cut shorts which feature an all-over graphic combined with a trapunto quilted effect throughout. The lined shorts are a great investment piece that encapsulates Riccardo Tisci’s current aesthetic for the historic fashion house.
Available now at SSENSE.

We have had the privilege to watch the rise of Troubadour from its earliest conversations to being a full-fledged brand that we have deep respect for. Samuel Bail and Abel Samet set off to create uncompromised leather products. We were energized by their progress as they travelled Europe and North America looking for the best of everything. The brand reflects their successful search with thoughtful design, supple leather, quality hardware and exceptional branding. Every component of the brand is well thought out and executed with intention.
Knowing the great quality of the products, we naturally invested heavily in the collection. We have first hand experience with Troubadour’s Day Bag, Wallet and iPad Case. With use, their products quickly reflect the level of thought that went into their ergonomic designs. Troubadour is a brand to believe in and one that is undoubtedly built to last.
Troubadour’s inaugural collection is available at TroubadourGoods.com

We have developed an ongoing appreciation for Neighborhood’s building collection of Booze Incense Chambers. The Colt and The Skull chambers we have seen in the last year were both thoughtful and intriguing.
The latest offering from Neighborhood is The Booze Crow Incense Chamber. This menacing crow sits atop a human skull marked with Caesar’s infamous “Veni Vidi Vici” (Latin for “I came, I saw, I conquered”) that is resting on a book titled “The Black Arts”.
Available at The Goodhood Store.

Gordon Von Steiner is an exceptional videographer out of New York, originally from Canada. We have been fans of his work for a while, which you have likely seen as well through GQ. He recently created the latest video for Givenchy and Barneys which is simply phenomenal. The content, editing and soundtrack come together for a truly engaging experience.

In addition to this accomplishment, they manage to venture into newness while remaining connected to their loyal fanbase.

Haven’s buyers have chosen a few of Comme des Garcons SHIRT’s strongest pieces for Spring/Summer 2013. One of our favourites is the pink/blue paneled short-sleeve button up pictured above. The shirt is distinct in its mixing of patterns and materials in a unique geometric configuration.
