Feature Links up with Saucony for "Living Fossil" Shadow 6000

Feature has returned with a new collaborative drop alongside Saucony. The Shadow 6000 takes on a “Living Fossil” theme as its inspired by Nevada’s state fossil, the Ichthyosaur. Suede meets nubuck on the upper in addition to water-resistant panels all treated in Beryl-green. You’ll also find holographic detailing on its signature dots as it rests atop a gradient speckled outsole. Additional Saucony branding is added to the tongue and heel for additional flair with reflective elements scattered throughout. 

Crafted with a luxurious finish in mind, the runner opts for a water-resistant panel that further represents the water-based Ichthyosaur. A cracked nubuck finish to the lateral panels runs parallel to speckled detailing, with these final details creating a look straight out of Jurassic Park. A fossilized Saucony Wings logo woven label completes the look. Check the pair tomorrow July 20, at The Nines Uptown Mall.

Jabbawockeez x The Nines: Meet & Greet

The Jabbawockeez (stylized as JabbaWocKeeZ) is an American hip-hop dance crew, best known for being the winners of the first season of America’s Best Dance Crew 2008. They were initially formed by members Kevin "KB" Brewer, Phil "Swagger Boy" Tayag, & Joe "Punkee" Larot under the name "3 Muskee". By 2004, their members included Ben "B-Tek" Chung, Chris "Cristyle" Gatdula, Rynan "Kid Rainen" Paguio, and Jeff "Phi" Nguyen. Tony "Transformer" Tran joined the crew in 2013. The Jabbawockeez do not have a group leader; choreography for their performances, as well as music and design choices, is made as a collective unit.         

"We want you to experience Jabbawockeez as a group and not just follow or be fans of one individual person. There's no lead dancer in our crew. Our philosophy is that when you watch us perform, you have to watch us as a whole... When we put [the masks] on, it's not about who we are or where we came from. We're all one."

     

 The meet and greet was held last May 11, 2018. Sponsored by Heineken and Jack Daniels, a fun night for Jabbawockeez and The Nines Crew. From meeting fans way-back and just hanging out with the whole crew. 

See you and stay tuned for our next event!

Profound Aesthetic - Denim Release

Profound Aesthetic is the by-product of bringing two worlds together. It is a way of cultivated internal thought and fascinating external beauty. With these two layers as part of the fundamental core of the brand, stories are told through the pieces that are made. The quest is to create collections of beautifully designed product with an infinite life span. To consistently merge art and fashion and curate both a lifestyle while perpetuating a new way of thought. 
  
There is very little organized planning and structure that goes into Profound Aesthetic design process. It's a very natural and fluid form of creation. The design on mood, feeling and energy, keeping tones mostly muted with darker tones, sometimes with subtle pops of colors.  Imagery and words play a heavy role. Oftentimes, the weeks approaching a new seasonal collection are subtly filled with idea-hunting.
  
These ideas are stored within iphone notes, folders on computer desktops and in our minds. We usually put together full collections within one to two weeks, from start to finish and work triple shifts in order to complete them. It sounds like chaos but there's certainly a method to it that works. In the end, if the process comes from the heart and mind, it all somehow aesthetically ties into place and becomes a cohesive collection. There is only one goal: To make each collection progressively better than the last.

Champion Life - SS18

SS18 Release
Champion’s core spirit never changed, but their quality and designs get even better all of the time.
 
Born on the athletic fields of a Missouri military academy. The Feinbloom brothers in Rochester N.Y. made sweaters the school issued as jerseys to their football team. Champion Knitwear Co. soon took on the challenge of bringing athletic wear to college sports. The result was a cotton-rich, heavyweight fleece so sturdy and comfortable it replaced the woolen standard and the legendary Champion Reverse Weave was born.
 
Coaches in different fields loved the durability of the clothing they became the standard issue for college athletes. Champion came to symbolize the love of sport and soon found a home in college merchandise across the United States.
 
The iconic C logo was later added to the left sleeve of every merchandise and still sets the standard for Authentic American Athletic wear. For nearly 100 years, Champion outfitted everything from pick-up games to military training to USA Olympic teams.

RIPNDIP

RIP N DIP is a Los Angeles based clothing brand originally founded in Orlando, Florida in 2009 by Ryan O'Connor. They have a very specific voice and it often focuses on eccentric designs that aren't afraid to stray from the norm. It is the brand that will keep your dreams alive, started out as just a group of friends at skate camp who wanted to shred in something else than the wack camp-issued gear. Today, it’s a serious label churning out full collections with a legitimate presence in the skate world.

     

O’Connor and his crew developed Rip N Dip the old-fasioned way, which in pre-internet times meant screen-printing tees in his mom’s garage, driving around the country giving away shirts to kids at skate parks, and storing the brand’s inventory in his cramped apartment.

         

IDGAF attitude that oozes out from its designs, shirts, camp caps and cut-and-sew collections. Streetwear is forever relevant and Rip N Dip is a prime example of why.
