Here’s some creative talent that i’ve been meaning to post for a minute now.
The 1st time I saw these I definitely did a double take before I realized what was going on. For how small they actually are the craftmanship is pretty impressive.
Made by Phillipino on ISS forums, who is a junior in HS and although he hasn’t yet, may eventually decide to sell these because of all the requests. Can’t lie, I’d pay for a pair of these.
Gotta love when people use their creativity to make ill stuff like this.
So after years of speculation and rumors of the whole project being scrapped, the Bape store in LA has finally opened its doors.
Biggest pair of jeans i’ve ever seen.
Nigo with Iron Mike
Johnny Cupcakes & Lupe
Nigo with Takashi Murakami
Kaws with Pharrell
Lots of celebs came out for the event, and the store looks really nice (even though im sure it’s a lot smaller in person than the pictures make it look. thats how all Bape stores seem).
If you’re in LA be sure to check it out.

Along with turning Dior Homme around over the past year, Kris Van Assche has also made some impressive peices through his own line. Here we see some amazing hi tops from his s/s 2008 collection.
The design on these is subtle but crazy. Along with the nice metalic and patent leathers used, the lacing on these is rediculous.
They’ll undoubtedly have a crazy price tag on em but check for these this summer.
So this weekend we weren’t able to capture the 25 grand that we were competing for, but we did damn good, impressed a lot of people, made some nice connections, and acted recklessly.
The first of many SwaggerDap tees was printed for the occasion.
The crew came through to show support.
heat on the feet! Puma Spys, DMPs, and Bape 88s!! … that’s a shoe circle not to messed with
Meezy with the Brand-Yourself crew
then Meezy on top of my car for some reasons. But ill pics came out of it so it’s cool.
Then the BBQing began
now we just gotta hope that we don’t make a mill this year so we can come back and take that competition next year! You call it cocky, we call it swagger.
Overall, good times, and regardless of the financials SwaggerDap.com is still a movement. So watch for us, and Come Through …
