topo-designs-woolrich-fall-2015-collection-00

Woolrich is celebrating its 185th anniversary this month by marking the occasion through a fourth collaboration with Denver-based Topo Designs. The resulting Fall/Winter 2015 collection is made up of three made in the U.S.A. carryalls, each built with fabrications sourced from from Woolrich’s oldest continually operating woolen mill. The silhouettes take the form of the Rover Pack, Duffel Bag and Dopp Kit, each done up in three unique wool styles: the iconic Woolrich red and black buffalo check, along with black and navy versions of Alaskan twill, the wool used for the Alaska shirt originally worn by gold prospectors. The goods are available now at Woolrich.com and Topodesigns.com.

Nike and adidas Invest in 3D Printing for Custom Shoe Design

nike-3d-printing-shoes

Plenty of industries are experimenting with 3D printing and what it might mean for their own futures. Will consumers go out to eat in the future or simply print out a nice burger to order with a side of fries? Only time will tell.

Nike, for one, sees the new technology as a potentially big boost to the bottom line. The company, which has a long history of investing in innovation, told investors Wednesday that it expects to have $50 billion in revenue by 2020, according to USA Today. (That’s about $20 billion more than its last full fiscal year, by the way.) A sliver of that may come from 3D printing by that point, but the technology is expected to allow that piece of the pie to grow.

Introducing Burton & New Balance Collection

burton-newbalance-collection-0

New Balance joins forces with Burton, for a limited-edition Burton x New Balance line of street-to-snow footwear. Inspired by shared New England roots and similar brand ideology. At the core of the collection are three distinct styles, each cross-developed to create both an outdoor footwear version and full performance snowboard boot.

burton-newbalance-collection-1

The first two collection styles take the just-released New Balance HVL710 and reinvent it for outdoor and snowboard performance.  On the footwear side, this includes an outdoor style with a performance Vazee sole unit and inner booty construction, creating a whole new model that is designed with the 24/7 consumer in mind.  The corresponding snowboard boot model, the Burton x New Balance HVL710, co-inspired by the modern, technology-driven Burton Ion LTD snowboard boot, matches its footwear counterpart with matching reflective details, honeycomb textured mesh and strong grey and black colorblocking.

Urban Outfitters Joins The Restaurant Business

URBAN-OUTFITTERS-1

Urban Outfitters may have just closed the Intelligentsia coffee shop it housed in its flagship store in New York’s Herald Square, but that’s not stopping the retailer from getting into the restaurant business. It has an eatery in its new concept store in Austin, Texas, as well as in its stores in Los Angeles, Brooklyn and Philadelphia.

The Herald Square location has only been open since last year. Now, “no one’s sure what Urban will do with the now-vacant space next,” Sprudge.com notes. Beyond Manhattan,  however, Urban Outfitters may “be the best way to access restaurants from some of the best chefs in the country,” notes Eater.com.

MasterCard to Use Selfies to Verify Payments

selfe-pic-1

MasterCard is experimenting on the use of facial recognition technology to authorize payments. This security feature will be useful in preventing illicit use of cards for online payments, replacing the current password or PIN protection MasterCard is using.

The technology works through an app installed on a smartphone which is linked to the card account. When a person attempts to use their card for an online payment, the app will ask for a verification. Depending on their phone specs, they can choose to either verify with fingerprints or by a selfie.

The selfie route is simple and, hopefully, hack-proof. Just look at the camera, make sure your face fits the circle and blink. The blinking makes sure the app is looking at an actual face and not just a photo. Once the app gives the “OK,” the online transaction will push through.

What You Need to Know About Ralph Lauren’s New CEO

ralph-lauren-new-ceo-stefan-larsson-1

When news broke that Ralph Lauren was stepping down as CEO of his global brand, plenty of hearts were broken and left to ponder what was next for the media mogul. The brand is going to be in good hands with new CEO Stefan Larsson. The 40-year-old may not be a household name like his predecessor, but he’s pretty legendary within the fashion industry. Not only is Larsson largely responsible for building H&M into the fast-fashion behemoth it is today, he also transformed Old Navy into a more profitable endeavor than its parent company, Gap — raking in almost as much as both Gap and Banana Republic combined in 2014. Needless to say, if his past experience is any indicator, Larsson is the right man to turn Ralph Lauren’s stagnant earnings around.

Sneaker Politics & New Balance ‘Case 999’

SP 02

Boston-based New Balance and premier sneaker and apparel boutique, Sneaker Politics, have joined forces for the release of the limited edition Sneaker Politics x New Balance “Case 999.” Inspired by police detectives and the cases they investigate, the style will launch exclusively at Sneaker Politics locations and www.sneakerpolitics.com beginning September 26.

Inspired by unsolved crimes in Louisiana and the Detectives who work on the investigations, the “Case 999” is an ode to these  who work day and night for years on cases that are never solved. The style draws inspiration from their unique dress – a navy blue police coat, red oxford button up, paisley tie, and leather dress shoes, that easily differentiate them from other police officers. The upper is done in navy and tan pig-suede with pig leather linings. Hits of burgundy, a paisley print on the tongue, gum rubber outsole and pinstripe insole liner are unique details that make the “Case 999” shine. The style will be available globally beginning October 10.
