Master collaborator Yohji Yamamoto is always keeping his Y-3 collections fashion-forward. We’re seeing him pull out all the stops for 2015, as we now discover the latest adaptation of the Adidas Y-3 Qasa Low. The Qasa style first dropped in 2013 and has released in high and low-cut renditions and in a few different colourways. The clean sock-like fit with a black body and white/black toe area sits nicely on the white sole here. It’s no surprise that they are one of the most popular silhouettes of the Y-3 family and this latest tinkering should probably go down well with the fans. If you like your sneaks with a pop of colour and leather trimmings, check them out in the Burnt Orange colourway. There is no exact release date for these set yet but stay with SF for updates. via sneaker freaker

Boothroyd - Idle Hours

Boothroyd - Idle Hours (TriBoothroyd serves one of the most striking debuts on Tri Angle with 'Idle Hours'. Hailing from sunny North Manchester but now defected to London, Boothroyd's music is a slyly ambiguous, 'marishly-warped mesh of lo-fi samples strung together with a deceptively grand plan. Like the mutant, half-finished offspring of Coil and Lars Holdhus, it occupies a uniquely detached space in the peripheries of modern composition, vapour wave and ambient pop, scuttling between heart-racing peaks and petrified electronica like some fractal distillation of darkweb's babylonian data flux and the stark numbness of suburban English life summed up by J.G. Ballard. Sucking us into his jagged wormhole with the palpitations and elusive emotions of 'NYC', he lurks somewhere between Clive Barker and Ryan Trecartin in the richly visual, deviant flux of 'Skinned', and draws the talons right across the nerve with the ghoulish chorales and sewer-troddin' jag of 'Colony', whilst 'Y5' murks ambient house with a proper eldritch attitude and humour. We reckon it's f**king ace. If u like VHS Head, Wanda Group, Coil, Dynooo, Evian Christ, it's a no brainer. in boomkat

Marc by Marc Jacobs Spring 2015

« Luella Bartley and Katie Hillier, currently entrusted by Marc Jacobs with the stewardship of the collection popularly known as Marc by Marc but more conveniently tagged MBMJ (brevity being the soul of wit), were shaped in the crucible of English rave culture. The optimism, the idealism, the sense of community that were fostered in those heady days tend to linger » via style com

Innershades - Love Park

Black Rain - Dark Pool (2014)

Black Rain dials deep into the Blackest Ever Black psyche with 'Dark Pool', its first new material in 18 years. An eagerly awaited follow-up to 'Protoplasm' (2012) and 'Now I'm Just A Number: Soundtracks 1994-95' (2012), it features New York's dark interpreter, Stuart Argabright - Ike Yard instigator and erstwhile member of Dominatrix, Death Comet Crew - realise his starkest sci-fi fantasies in degrees of pitch black relief streaked with strobing neon flashes and whirring tribal/industrial rhythms comparable with his label-mates, Regis or Cut Hands. Thematically it builds upon the literary influence of William Gibson in previous records by taking new inspiration from the writings of PKD protégé K.W. Jeter's 'Edge of Human' (1996) - essentially a Blade Runner 2 - and Paolo Bacigalupi's 2009 novel, 'The Windup Girl', set in a 23rd century Thailand plagued by genetic and economic terrorism. Coupled with Argabright's Ballardian knack for detailed sonic mise-en-scene and dramaturgy, it's a thoroughly immersive experience, begging to be heard on night buses and 13th floor apartments with the blinds shut. in boomkat
