Directed by Romain Chassaing in promotion of Louis Vuiton’s New York City Guide for 2011, the brand attempt to solve the mystery of New York’s “Big Apple” title.

LRG – Holiday 2010 Collection Lookbook | Delivery 1

An interesting statement with the flair of an oxymoron, LRG, had decided that Alpine is high as hell this season, but they are determined to scale it in style.

Yesterday, we have seen the emergence of two Kanye West-songs- the ummastered “Lost In The World” and “All Of The Lights”. Both tunes are intended for his forthcoming new album. Obviously, the leaked audio files found their way to the net and spread all over. Yeezy addressed this issue via Twitter and announced that this week won’t see no new installment of his popular G.O.O.D. Friday-series. This blog as well, offered the “Lost In The World” as a stream and has now took it down from this space.
Here is what Mr. West had to say this morning (September 30):
Due to blogs leaking unfinished songs from my actual album I’ve decided to pass of Good Fridays this week.
It’s messed up that one hacker can mess everything up for everyone… I love to take a year to finish my songs and deliver them to you guys in there most completed form.
It would have seemed like since I give free music every week even the lowest form of human being would respect that enough not to leak unfinished songs from my real album.

Louis Vuitton 100 Legendary Trunks

 Slated to be released in October, the book will feature 100 of LV's most notable trunks. A fitting homage to the utility that built this company of what it is today. $125 in boutiques but if you are not in a rush, you can preorder it for $78.75 with a release date of December 1. Check out the video!


Although it is tagged, the full version of Kanye West’s new song “Lost In The World” has emerged. ‘Ye debuted a verse when he made his visit at the Facebook headquarters a couple of months ago. The cut finds Yeezy spitting over a “Woods”-sample by Bon Iver that were featured on his “Monster”-track. This definitely sounds more like 808&Heartbreak-material but is said to be a new recording. However, since news arrived that his album is indeed finished this could be the first real leaked “victim”. Hence, only stream. Enjoy

Kanye’s G.O.O.D. music roster gets deeper with the new additions of Pusha T, Charlie Wilson and CyHi Da Prynce. But in this month’s latest issue of XXL Mag, the “Monsters Inc.” article reveals his long-time compadre, Mos Def has also joined aboard the G.O.O.D. Music imprint. It reads the following:
“Just as Kanye returned to his roots to scoop up Common, he recently recruited his buddy Brooklyn rapper/singer/actor Mos Def into the GOOD Music fold. Long regarded as a formidable talent by underground devotees and mainstream fans alike, Mos appeared on “Two Words” (from Kanye’s 2005 The College Dropout) and “Drunk and Hot Girls” (from KW’s 2007 Graduation). Since his 1999 solo debut, Black on Both Sides, Mos has increasingly been pushed — whether by generational choices or self-exile — to the fringes of indie, alternative hip hop. Maybe it will take Kanye to reign him in.”
We’ll keep you updated as more information becomes available, stay tuned!


With a buzzing G.O.O.D. Friday-series under his wings, Kanye West seeks to further intensify the hype surround his forthcoming collaborative EP with Jay-Z Watch The Throne. The artist sent us brief tweets with the names of a few producers that are involved with this project. As previously reported Yeezy has been working with LA-based production veteran Madlib. Now he increased the anticipation by adding illustrious names like Pete Rock and Q-Tip to the production credits. Here are the announcement that have bee tweeted past weekend:
“Music is so fun right now… Hip hop is alive… The hip hop I always loved… an extension of what me and Jay did on BP3″
“That Mobb Deep.. That Nas… That Wu… That Biggie… 94′ 95′ sh*t!”
“We got new Pete Rock Joints on the Watch the Thrown album… Q Tip joints… We bout to spit on this Madlib beat”
“We don’t play by radio rules… We come together as a family and give the fans what they need… Good Fridays”


The Nike Dunk Hi Premium “Rainbow” Pack was originally announced at the beginning of summer. Since then, the anticipation has all but disappeared.
