G-Star x Marc Newson Spring/Sumer 2015 Collection

Take it back to basics with this Spring/Summer 2016 collection from Amsterdam-based G-Star and Australian designer Marc Newson, who previously collaborated on a Fall/Winter collection. The newest offering is inspired by the idea of a uniform in that “you could just go to your wardrobe and sort of pull out a bunch of things, and you knew that they were all going to work together".

Included in the relaxed collection are the Newson Coach jacket and matching chino, both of which are presented in an array of premium fabrics, as well as the 5-Pocket Denim Slim, a take on the traditional 5-pocket jean.

Look for the collection at the top of 2016. 


2016 Mercedes-Benz SL

Mercedes-Benz’s SL sixth-generation model gets a significant structural and performance upgrade for 2016 with a new aggressive exterior design. Think updated hood, bumper and rear, that goes with a diamond grille and powerful headlights.

TRIWA x Storm’s “Sort of Black” Champagne Release

The watchmakers have imprinted both styles with markers that allow the champagne colour to stand out, while the watch’s interchangeable bands mean you can choose between a dark brown Tärnsjö organic leather band or a champagne-plated mesh band.
