With all the hype surrounding the Brooklyn Nets lately it was only a matter of time before someone came along to make fun of everything that’s taken place. The Internet especially has been full of endless stories all saying what boils down to the same thing about the Nets, Jay-Z, and Barclays Center. It’s gotten to the point where the borough’s team is practically the Internet – enter the Brooklyn Internets.
A man with many talents, known as the creative director of DONDA, the style adviser of Kanye West and co-owner of Chicago lifestyle boutique RSVP Gallery, Virgil Abloh is slowly but steadily also adding the designer title to his long list of occupations.
Today his brand PYREX VISION has released a video lookbook for its sophomore collection for Spring/Summer 2013, entitled “Youth Always Wins”.
“From American designer, Virgil Abloh.
The winner will always be young.
It’s all based of his high school experience. Pusha-T drug raps. Champion gym uniforms. Caravaggio obsession. Micheal Jordan as God. Kurt cobain felt the most real. Black kid with white tendencies.
Being self-taught was the extent of his art education. Added help from living and breathing youth street skate culture combined with living in Rome and Paris.
YOUTH WINS GAMES no matter the sport. Pavement. Concrete.
Models casted from Harlem to Amsterdam to represent the YOUTH. The next.”
Made up of bold logo pieces for the most part, Abloh worked with a set number of color palettes for the new collection. The line features shorts, t-shirts, plaid shirts, caps and more, everything coming with a slightly oversized fit. Modeled by A$AP Barri, A$AP Nast, A$AP Josh, A$AP Illz, Ian Connor and Nayle Junior, the collection is now available here.

This time they got together with mastermind JAPAN for a nice all black mini-collection, including two t-shirts, two hoodies, a tote bag and of course a special edition Gundam MS-06J ZAKUII action figure.
After having presented the first part of the 10.Deep Holiday 2012 Collection later last month, the New York brand releases the second part of the line this week and delivers along with it a new collection lookbook.

New from Rockwell by Parra is a selection of items that showcase the Dutch artist’s noted post-pop art aesthetic — highly saturated colors, vibrant hand-drawn letters and surreal characters. In a range of tees, hoodies and accessories, each piece is populated by Parra’s bird-like characters and witty humor courtesy of discharged prints in a focused color spectrum. The array of new pieces arrive with the artist’s decidedly bold and chromatic visuals reinterpreted into a range of apparel releases.
