Maybe you noticed the dip in temperature or the nightly whirling of cool breeze. Yep, fall is here and so are the slews of new releases. First as a collection preview the week before, Supreme's Fall/Winter 2010 line came to fruition on Thursday when it launched in New York and Los Angeles. With a queue of 100+ to bear witness at the time, there is little doubt the Lafayette Street staple still reign. While on the subject of "staple", Staple Design announced its 3 sets of designs for the ongoing History of Oakley project. Jeff Staple's pairing of Oakley Frogskin and Holbrook is a perfect juxtaposition that exercises as part informational, part history lesson, and all design with a purpose. Both are available now at Lower East Side's Reed Space. Right down the same street is Self Edge, the cathedral of selvedge denims. We sat down with co-owners Kiya Babzani and Andrew Chen for an in-depth interview to learn more about the enigmatic and nearly sainted realm of selvedge. Of course, the week was full of other notable news, both in its breadth and depth. The Hundreds touched down on the East Coast (finally) with impressive storefront in SoHo. Another was the new Flight Club on 812 Broadway and its 1300+ sneaker wall. When the sun sets, tennis pros come out to play on the Hundson Waterfront for Nike Tennis Primetime Knockout. So browse through the festivities which took place on the last week of August and Summer 2010. Hello Fall 2010!
