Wiley’s wild wovens on display at the premier of his “Down” show at Deitch projects earlier this month…

Painter KEHINDE WILEY‘s use of highly detailed floral motifs as backgrounds for his intricate portraits is legendary, and now the artist has translated this inspiration literally into a new line of clothing that will be making its commercial debut at the end of the year. Speaking to GQ magazine, Wiley explained: “In Nigeria I bought these amazing fabrics from open-air markets. I brought them back, photographed and sourced them for painting, then wondered what to do with them. I ended up working with the designer DAPO JAMIU-SOYOYE. You know that Michelin Man-style puffy coats? We made a series of those out of the fabrics and are going to sell them in a pop up store in New York in December ’08 or January ’09.” HAVE A LOOK: Read More

Prince’s new kix, size men’s 5… 

It’s safe to say that we at Supertouch have a serious shoe fetish, but it’s not often that we get to legitimately obsess over women’s kix. The recent release of this sculptural pair of asymmetrical heels by London-based Iraqi modern architect ZAHA HADID for the little-known Brasilian eco shoe company MELISSA, however, proved to be just such an occasion, and stopped us in our tracks and made us stare just a little too long. And a model wasn’t even wearing them. To celebrate the collaboration, Melissa has created a massive pair of the shoes as sculpture currently on display in their flagship boutique in Sao Paulo. Marc Newson, we expect your response in shoe form within six months. HAVE A LOOK: Read More

To commemorate his groundbreaking show in Paris, artist TOM SACHS has released a special must-have T-shirt supporting the OBAMA campaign in its final stretch as we approach the election next week. Available only at Parisian retail palace COLETTE, the shirt features a rendering of Sachs’ Hello Kitty Eiffel Tower installation with the words “OBAMA 08” on the back. Just the thought of the French walking around Paris with an American (would-be) president’s name on their backs makes a tear drop our eyes…

Dr Takahashi reports for surgery in the plushie emergency room…

Friday nite saw Supertouch buddy and Japanese fashion mastermind JUN TAKAHASHI—founder of iconic couture house UNDERCOVER—moving his international “The Sound & The Fury” tour to Hong Kong where his creation of a new art mannequin in a process he calls “live doll operation” was the highlight of the evening. Hosted by HK streetwear think tank SILLY THING, the all-nite party featured live sets by MISHA from PAM, DEXPISTOLS, DJ OGAWA, and longtime Jun Takahashi accomplice MAJOR FORCE‘s TAKAGI KAN who provided background soundscapes for Takahashi’s surgical strike performance in the duo’s first collaboration since their NOWHERE STORE days in the ’90s. The event brought out a crowd of HK’s top celebs and hipster elite who partied alongside musician JUNO MAK, and visiting BATHING APE overlord NIGO dressed in his finest Catholic prep school summer uniform.

You’ve been warned…

It’s been a painfully slow year in streetwear but the event of the summer kicks off this Friday in Hollywood when NEIGHBORHOOD, STUSSY, and NIKE unveil their “Boneyards” collaboration at the 144 LaBrea installation space.

Nigel Sylvester in the clouds by artist Robert Wilson…

Just returned from China where ardent Supertouch supporters/footwear-to-the-gods giant NIKE have had their hands full for the past several months preparing for some incredible pre-Olympics events including the launch of the new Nike Sportswear division, the Nike technology retrospective “House of Innovation” exhibit, and the big (and seemingly impossible) takeover of the legendary and historical Forbidden City for a nite. Along for the ride was a veritable who’s-who of international tastemakers and shakers who transformed the massive trek into a traveling party & impromptu meeting of the minds. Under massive preparation for the upcoming Olympic games that launch on 08.08.2008, Beijing is a city in transition, undergoing a series of monumental building projects (Rem Koolhaas’ CCTV tower is a standout) and sweeping social changes that mark its slow, but obvious westernization—a fact made apparent by the ubiquitous presence of American and European shops and restaurants that dot the city’s cluttered urban landscape.
