  1. Carhartt WIP has released its new lookbook for the upcoming 2017 fall/winter collection -- and it's as clean as you'd expect from the workwear specialists. The chore jacket is a signature Carhartt piece and this year marks its 100th anniversary, so the brand has paid special attention to the product this season, giving it some special treatment. Elsewhere there's subtle upgrades on the classics, using fabrics such as stretch wool and valley corduroy to make sure the vintage workwear-inspired garments still hold their place in 2017 and beyond. There's also a continuation of the military capsule, which uses subtle camouflage patterns throughout the small selection of products. The collection itself is set to drop in Carhartt WIP stores and select retailers from early September. The last we saw of Carhartt WIP, the brand was teaming up with mastermind JAPAN on a limited-edition T-shirt. Click here to view full gallery at Hypebeast.com View the full article
  2. Bandit9’s latest piece of custom work to leave their shop is an upgrade to the classic Harley-Davidson Street 750. The Saigon-based company has fittingly called its latest bike the Dark Side -- presumably earning its name from the blacked out exterior -- keeping the motor, exhaust and handmade radiator shroud all in the same sleek colorway. The inspiration for the bike was aircraft, using a unibody to fuse several connecting parts into one aerodynamic piece of equipment. It’s powered by a 750cc liquid-cooled RevX engine, uses LED lights for the front lens and the brake & turn signals, as well as a 2-into-1 Vance & Hines customised competition series exhaust. The Dark Side will be an incredibly limited edition model, with only 9 available around the world at a cost of $32,000 USD. You can pre-order from Bandit9’s web store now.

  3. Timberland has teamed up with Japanese streetwear stalwart SOPHNET. for a new "Explore The Unknown" collaborative collection.

The six-panel caps and boots will be the first pieces of the capsule to drop, releasing on September 16. The rest of the collection will be available from October 28. While you're waiting for those dates, why not take a look at more SOPHNET. releases -- including the Japanese brand's 2017 fall/winter collection which just dropped through the brand's online store.

  4. After recently unveiling the "Kode 9," renowned automotive designer Ken Okuyama has revealed the follow-up -- his one-off "Kode 0" supercar. The latest design from ex-Pininfarina man channels some of his favorite 1970s cars, with elements from classic Lamborghinis and Lancias mixed with more modern components, such as LED lighting and Carbon Fibre body plates. As well as the design elements, the "Kode 0" is also packing 700 horse power from its V12 engine. At the moment, only one of the supercars has been produced and it doesn't seem likely that the former Ferrari designer's latest creation will ever make it to wider production. After you've taken a look at the "Kode 0," refresh your memory of some of Okuyama's other work, including the "kode57" from last year.

  5. Co-owner of the skate and streetwear brand Babylon LA, Lee Spielman, has given a new interview in which he speaks about the brand, the importance of having a store and the community that creates, as well as how the brand has come to outshine his band and the ups and downs of Hollywood as a place to live. Speaking to SSENSE, Spielman holds court on the following topics: The importance of a physical store: Everyone can make cool t-shirt designs and sell them online, but what more can you provide than a t-shirt? What can you do for people that’s not just fucking selling clothes? Because any idiot in the world can slap a sick sign on a shirt and sell a million of them, but you can’t really create an atmosphere. You can’t purchase that. The physical brick-and-mortar is 100 percent the driving force behind our brand. A lot of people come here that aren’t from here and buy a shirt, but they’re buying into the idea of the lifestyle of California youth skate culture in general. A wooden backyard bowl in the middle of Hollywood in a building that looks like a house? That sounds like it’s out of a fucking movie, but it’s not. The brand outshining the band: The brand has exceeded the band now. I would say 80 percent of people who buy Babylon shit have no idea what the band is, which I kinda like. Some of these kids who skate here are like, “What the fuck? Lee has a band? That’s crazy.” To me, that’s tight. I don’t know how many years I’ll be able to throw my body off a stage, but I can for sure skate and create cool shit ‘til the day that I die. I’m chilling. Living near Hollywood: One thing I like about Hollywood is that it’s shitty as fuck. From the outside, you’re like, “Oh, Hollywood, glitz and glamour,” but nah, Hollywood is crackheads, piss, and shit. It’s the nastiest place on the planet. I like that we’re in the middle of that, riding the fine line. The Red Line’s right here too, so every fuckin’ kid hops on the train whether it be heading from Compton or heading from the Valley. But you also get all the tourist dudes who come from Europe, like a Swiss family on vacation and their kid’s like, “We must go to Babylon.” And then you get all the Japanese and Chinese dudes. Everyone comes to Hollywood, you know? You read the full interview over at SSENSE. For more from Babylon LA, you can check out this month's drop of print-heavy t-shrits.

  6. Brooklyn-based artist KAWS is making a comeback with the BFF Vinyl Open Edition after the re-release of the coveted Black BFF Statue earlier on this year.

  7. Young Thug dropped a music video for "Wyclef Jean" that he didn't show up for in January. Even though the Atlanta rapper didn't make an appearance, director Ryan Staake flipped the no-show into a successful video with some brilliant editing work. The video was so good that it even got Thug and production studio Pomp&Coult a VMA for Best Editing. Ironically, Young Thug also did not show up to receive the award during the show yesterday. However, it was because Thugger was not aware of his victory because nobody told him about it. Check out his tweet about it below. So no one was going to tell me that I won an award?? — Young Thug ひ (@youngthug) August 28, 2017 Click here to view full gallery at Hypebeast.com View the full article

  11. According to digital security firm Irdeto, an estimated 2.9 million people illegally streamed the Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor fight last Saturday. The numbers that were seen on the illegal streaming circuit for the event have made the super fight one of the most pirated -- perhaps, even the most -- pirated boxing matches in history. Although the event was marketed as the biggest event in combat sports history, many did not believe it was worth the $100 USD pay-per-view price utilizing illegal means to watch the fight. Alongside typical pirate-streaming sites and streaming devices, social media platforms like Facebook, YouTube, Twitch and Periscope, hosted many illegal streams despite respective efforts to shut down the viewing. No word from the promoters of the super fight, but stay tuned for more details. Also, relive the Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor super fight with our recap of the night’s events.

  12. After pledging to donate $50,000 USD to the American Red Cross Harvey Relief, comedian Kevin Hart is encouraging the rest of his A-list friends to join him in a celebrity challenge to help out. Hart posted a video on Instagram highlighting the devastating effects of Hurricane Harvey in Houston, Texas and how people like himself and his friends can help to donate money to the victims. The comedian ends the video by nominating JAY-Z, Beyoncé, Jerry Seinfeld, Dwayne Johnson, and Justin Timberlake and more to donate $25,000 USD to Red Cross. Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner thanked Hart during a Monday morning news conference for raising awareness. You can help the victims of Hurricane Harvey by donating through the Red Cross website, calling 1-800-RED CROSS or by making a $10 USD donation by texting "HARVEY" to 90999.

  15. Hip hop legends, Will Smith and DJ Jazzy Jeff's last collaboration was in 1998 with "Lovely Daze." This weekend, the duo returned in full force, debuting their new collaborative track "Get Lit" at the Livewire Festival in Blackpool, England.

Watch their live performance at Livewire Festival above. Smith told NME, that the song was reflective of the "chaos and confusion” going on in the world: "I wanted to make a song that allowed people to let their light shine. We all have an inner light and sometimes this world [...] People can say stuff to you and tell you you can’t do and you know you can but when they tell you that it kinda knocks you down a bit right so I wanted to make a record that reminded each and every one of y’all to let your light shine.” Also, take a look at Netflix's Bright trailer starring Will Smith.
