ADIDAS SUPERSTAR X XLARGE and STAN SMITH X MAHARISHI EXCLUSIVELY AVAILABLE AT BUNKER

Adidas Philippines in collaboration with Bunker, the distributor of exclusive and premiere designer shoes in the country is unveiling its two limited edition collaboration sneakers, the adidas Superstar X Xlarge and the Stan Smith X Maharishi on August 28.

Adidas Superstar X Xlarge.

It all began in November 1991. The first X-Large store opened on Vermont Ave. where a scene had already been developing around the store location. It was a combination of skateboarding, hip-hop, art and whatever was happening in the area at the time.

As the ethos and direction of the brand continued to evolve, the store began to present a unique style and perspective – a representation of utilitarian-wear as fashion as opposed to everyday wear.

Blending the aforementioned skateboarding, hip-hop, and art culture, X-Large has created an original fashion style out of the mix.

Still going strong after 15 years, X-Large remains an innovator and pioneer in street wear.

Adidas Stan Smith X Maharishi.

Since its birth in 1994, Maharishi has evolved into one of the UK’s most influential designer labels, offering distinctive men’s, women’s and children’s collections available from a range of exclusive fashion retailers globally. Founded by Creative Director, Hardy Blechman, Maharishi carries a strong ethos of respect for nature while utilizing the latest technology.

Blechman, whose former experience lay in the international military and industrial clothing surplus trade, started Maharishi by producing hemp and other natural fibre clothing as well as recycling work-wear and military surplus.

Maharishi prides itself on not conforming to mainstream fashion trends, placing emphasis on its own points of inspiration and the natural progression of excellent quality, perfect fit and original design.

BOTH PAIRS WILL BE RELEASED ON FRIDAY WITH THE REST OF SEA . LIMITED PAIRS. COME EARLY.

Yellow Submarine

Next wednesday we will be holding a FREE film screening of The Beatles Yellow Submarine. First come, first serve. Seats will be limited, come early.

Taken from wikipedia:

Released at the height of the psychedelic pop culture period of the 1960s, the movie Yellow Submarine was a box-office hit, drawing in crowds both for its lush, wildly creative images, and its soundtrack of Beatles songs. The original story was written by Lee Minoff, based on the song by John Lennon and Paul McCartney, and the screenplay penned by four collaborators including Erich Segal. The recurring line “It’s all in the mind” is taken from The Goon Show.

As with many motion picture musicals, the music takes precedence over the actual plot, and most of the story is a series of set-pieces designed to present Beatles music set to various images, in a form reminiscent of Walt Disney‘s Fantasia (and foreshadowing the rise of music videos and MTV fifteen years later). Nonetheless, the movie still presents a modern-day fairy tale that caters to the ideals of the “love generation”.

The dialogue is littered with punsdouble entendres, and Beatles in-jokes, many scripted by poet Roger McGough. “Blue Meanies” is sometimes used as a slang term for the police, although many viewers will have missed this (see List of slang terms for police officers). The term “Blue Meanies” is actually a metaphor for bad people in government and corporations, who force their wills on good people (Pepperlanders), and carelessly deplete and ruin the natural environment, resources, colour and landscape. They are carefree about their destructive ways and will do whatever necessary to crush those (the Beatles) who oppose them.
