You’re getting a super sneak peek at Nike 6.0′s neat space-themed Explorer Pack scheduled for release in January 2010, though we wish it were coming out now ’cause of all the moon-landing anniversary talk in the air that has us feeling space-y. The Nike 6.0 team went to NASA HQ to get inspired for the design of the collection, even going so far as to tap astronaut Buzz Aldrin to help devise the galaxy print. It adorns everything from the Galaxy hoody to Triad backpack. I especially love the tee (sorry, not pictured), which is printed with the world-famous image of Aldrin from the Apollo Moon landing. There’s also another jacket in white, is waterproof and has special details, like zip pulls and Velcro straps in red and blue to correspond to the left and right sides"”all in direct reference to astronauts’ space suits. Pretty out of this world.
Visual aesthetics from the mid-century modern era, with a touch of Japan. Gorgeous work by Josh Brill of Lumadessa each limited to 50, signed and numbered by the artist. $20 each, a great gift for the bird lover in your family.
The Dutch Master is based on the beloved Worksman cruiser frame–a workhorse foundation used throughout the New York delivery community, and manufactured in Queens, New York for over 110 years. Core77 customized the frame, fitting it out with a carefully curated set of components, each with its own story.
The bike was hand-built by KT Higgins, a Brooklyn-based ex-bike messenger (infamous for her crash in the movie Pedal), and proprietor of Bushwick Bike Shop, her one-year-old bikeshop in the Bushwick neighborhood of Brooklyn.
You can pop by the Apple Store to meet the designers on Saturday the 11th in New York (Prince Street) at 3pm"“ and afterwards the Dutch Master will be on display in the lobby of the Ace Hotel on West 29th for one week from July 11th through July 18th.
