While I have your attention check out notorious graffiti artist Phetus blast out a mural promoting the elite, members-only movement, PLNDR.com. The video features the mural in progress with Phetus’ iconic Phat Face logo plundering for bounty. Enjoy!
“This idea came to me while I was at an art event buying a taco from a food truck that was outside the gallery,” said Mitra Khayyam founder/curator of Blood Is The New Black, who works with independent artists to create the designs for the company’s iconic tees.
“I realized I wanted to bring my tees to fans as easily as I was getting my taco, right there on the curb. Partnering with I Make My Case and Coolhaus just made sense. We are all about summer, being outside, shopping, eating and more importantly, having fun.”
To celebrate the collaboration Blood Is the New black and case-mate have swapped their extensive list of artists who create the designs for their respective products. Blood Is The New Black artists Keren Richter and Peter and Joyelle Komierowski (husband/wife) will create limited-edition designs for the case-mate products sold on the truck. Vice versa, artists Shadow Chen and Chuck Anderson will lend their hand from the case-mate repertoire. These items will also be available at http://www.bloodisthenewblack.com/ and imakemycase.case-mate.com.
“Whether through t-shirts, cases or even ice cream preferences, case-mate wants to support the right to self-expression," said Erik Attkisson, CMO of case-mate. “Our partners in fun bring together the best of what ‘finding the artist within each of us’ is all about.”
After working up a sweat shopping, hungry revelers can cool off with a Coolhaus ice cream sandwich.
“The Summer Fling Truck will revolutionize retail as we know it," said Natasha Case founder/owner of Coolhaus. “Taking the 'taco truck' or ice cream truck concept and co-opting it into mobile fashion could inspire other industries to go mobile as well. We are speaking to our Echo Park community and showcasing all of the creativity that is coming from this area.”
The Summer Fling Truck can be seen cruising through Los Angeles until the end of September, constantly rotating their stock of Tees, case-mate products, and Coolhaus ice cream flavors.
Follow the truck on Twitter @summerflingtruk and find us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/summerflingtruck to stay up to date on the truck’s whereabouts.

At 7.8 ounces, the 205 provides comfort and exceptional fit in a sleek, contoured design. Originally designed as the most premium racing sneaker of the era, the 205 featured New Balance’s most advanced running technology including: Abzorb cushioning in the heel for comfort on the heel strike, Acteva Midsole (12% lighter weight midsole than a traditional EVA midsole), utilization of a synthetic leather/mesh upper for an ultra light weight, breathable upper that hugs the foot, and low profile dimensions to keep this responsive running shoe as close to the ground as possible.
The reissued New Balance 205 will feature a Masai tribal shield in honor of the Kenyan athletes representing New Balance to victory in the 2003 and 2004 Boston, Chicago, and London marathons.
The New Balance 205 will be available at Conveyor at Fred Segal in Santa Monica, CA which just hosted the West Coast Launch of the New Balance Sonic Collection last week. A special wall was built for the party with a built in theremin, a special antenna-like electronic musical instrument which uses the proximity of a hand to alter the pitch and volume of a pure sine wave. The theremin added some extra fun and interactive “sonic” component as consumers approach the product shelf.

I really like the Termaine Tank with the white contrast pocket over the striped tank. This is a must for the Summer. Buy it ($29) at Karmaloop.
When I posted the behind the scene clip I wrote about a striped knit top with a dope pocket detail. Well, I was wrong about it being stripes, but the pocket detail is still dope in this still. The model in the middle is wearing it.
Polos are another Summer essential and the black contrast collar and sleeve rib mix well with this red stripe knit.

JAY-Z commented, "Our passion is creating amazing music. We're dedicated to delivering the best in live performances. Now with the Roc Nation/Skullcandy partnership, we're offering the best way for people to experience the soundtrack of their lives."
First up in this venture is the Roc Nation Aviator. Designed with superior metals, polycarbonate headphone cups, plush memory foam ear cushions, and premium materials previously only seen in the realm of high-fashion eyewear. Utilizing top-grade components, the Aviator’s replication of studio music delivers a phonic experience with clarity and pure fidelity.
Rick Alden (Skullcandy CEO) says, “This partnership is an incredible opportunity for Skullcandy. By teaming up with Roc Nation on both the creative and marketing direction of these products, we are able to set the bar at a new high - challenging the future quality of what emerges in the industry from here on out.”
Look for the highly anticipated Roc Nation Aviator headphones available June 2010
Created by Waldman, the NookaNooka is an urban vinyl collector’s toy, but more importantly acts as a representative for the Nooka brand. Not only is it made of similar materials as other Nooka products, it also represents our innovative approach to design, pushing the limits of creativity and changing the way people think about objects.
The NookaNooka’s physiology is transient, eternal in his world and ephemeral in ours – beyond imagination – like something you are told is not real, like something you can’t taste, but can feel. Mad Barbarians, Veggiesomething, Room322 and Matthew Waldman displayed their artistic talent by designing their own unique and custom mini NookaNooka collabs.
