The massive store cost over 30 Million Pounds and is nothing short of impressive. You can of course expect an incredible selection of LV products in the new store.

**NEW MUSIC** DRAKE feat. ALICIA KEYS "Fireworks"

Since the song "Unthinkable" we all knew Drake & Alicia Keys made a perfect couple on the track. We have been hearing about this track for months now & how it would be released soon. The song "Fireworks" coming from Drake is finally out. The song is coming off his up & coming album "Thank Me Later" & like we said before Alicia Keys is on it. Alicia blessed the hook with her beautiful voice & smooth swagger. This isn't the best record we have heard from Drake but give the guy a break hes consistent. Now we didn't say the song was a bad song because anything this man puts out right now is a hit. Take a listen & leave comments.

2010 BMW M3 By IND

The American tuner, IND, has revealed the ultimate BMW M3. The tuner modified the entire car starting with the exterior paint and progressing through the engine, and the exterior look. And, of course, they have added a lot of carbon fiber parts.

The IND M3 is painted in Atlantis Metallic exterior paint and features a new KW ClubSport adjustable suspension, Brembo 380mm brake kit, and a Akrapovic titanium exhaust system. The car’s interior is inspired by the M3 GTS: the back seats have been removed and replaced with a custom roll bar. After assembling it, the tuner added carbon fiber door panels, leather BMW performance seats, a roll bar, and, the biggest challenge, a carbon fiber rear interior section. Oh and the engine delivers a total of 522 HP!
This little doozy of a package kind of puts BMW’s 2011 Performance package for the M3 to shame with its 4.0 Liter V8 delivering a total of only 420 HP.

WMNS Nike Blazer Hi “Chinatown”

Since the beginning of time bootleggers have been counterfeiting authentic products with high hopes to make a quick buck off some consumers who usually can’t tell the difference between the real deal and the tomfooley out there. Since it’s nearly impossible to beat the counterfeiters, one company figured why not join em? Enter Jack Spade, who some years ago released a collection of tote bags called the Chinatown Collection (also known as the Canal Street bags) which resembled the cheap plastic, plaid bags that were being sold all over Canal Street. The collection proved to be so successful that Jack Spade was tapped by New Era to collaborate on a 59Fifty using the plastic red, white and blue plaid pattern. A fitted which eventually would sell through resellers for prices upwards of $350.

Taking a note right from the book of Spade, it appears Nike has found a little inspiration of their own from the plastic tote bags. Seen here is a new Womens Nike Blazer Hi which we have personally dubbed “Chinatown” in honor of Jack Spade’s collection. Not that Jack has anything to do with these, nor is the pattern or colors exactly the same (lawsuit anybody?), but the moment we saw them they instantly reminded us of those iconic bags which is why we have labeled them as such. The side paneling even appears to have somewhat of a glossy, plastic look to it, and depending on how you look at it and how the lights hitting them, you’ll also notice a shimmer pattern on small circles laid out over the sides.
Now whether or not you got a Jack Spade feel from seeing these is a different story, so take it for what it is on your end. We can’t say for sure those bags had anything to do with these. They could indeed just be some random colorway featuring some random grid pattern. No matter what you’re take is on them though, if you’re digging them you can get a pair in womens sizes 6-11 through Finish Line for $78, otherwise they’ll be more to come.

Nike SB – June 2010 – Apparel And Accessories Release

ince June is the start of summer, all those who are actually active under the sun instead out just lounging out for vitamin D will care about ventilation, comfort and keeping cool. Hence, what’s better for an afternoon out on the push than the good ol’ tee? Thus, Nike SB’s apparel release for June is all about the t-shirt, but mind you, it isn’t your run-of-the-mill graphic tee collection, as Nike SB had enlisted the help of skateboarder/artist extraordinare, Lance Mountain, to pen a few sketches for the collection.

Amongst the logo tees, a humorous photographic tee featuring an amigo in a poncho, Lance Mountain had taken care to sketch up a few skating scenarios, including one for Nike SB pro-skater, Eric Koston, who is also dropping his red, blue and gold Dunk Low Premium this month. The blue-tee with a little chunky figure in a hat flying down rails will match perfectly with the new Dunk Low Premium. Aside from a good selection of tees for everyday, Nike SB has also dropped a simple tri-fold wallet to keep all your plastic and cash safe while you zoom down the ramps.
