Check out part of Ibn Jasper’s skate deck collection featuring decks from the Andy Warhol x Alien Workshop series collaboration. The series features ten pro decks showcasing work from Andy Warhol’s Death & Disaster Series and his iconic Pop works. In the picture (shown above) he arranges the decks behind the Original Fake KAWS Dissected Companion Bearbrick. The child-sized figurine stands 70cm tall inside of the Louis Vuitton x Stephen Sprouse Skate Deck, and trunk holding an assortment of POW chains like it was Lady Liberty. Creative to say the least.

Here is a look into the Yves Saint Laurent Fall/Winter 2010 collection. YSL’s footwear captured a lot of attention when they first released the Rolling High Top leather sneaker a few years ago. Now with a few changes to the silhouette, the Fall/winter 2010 Collection is making noise again and I love what I’m seeing. Look for the full collection to be out by mid-fall and start making room in your closet, I know I will. Video & more pics below.

We’ve already seen the all black Balmain Wool & Leather Teddy jacket from the Fall/Winter 2010-11 collection, and now we take a look at the red version ($3,475). This jacket was definitely created for the more attention seeking individual, as it features a bold red wool body and contrasting black leather sleeves with zipper pockets. It also has a snap front closure and an aeronautical embroidered badge on the left chest. I must say, the color combination alone makes this jacket far more appealing. I don’t know about you, but this is on my list of must haves.

Coming off the heels of the Magic Mouse, the worlds first multi-touch mouse, Apple has just introduced the “Magic Trackpad” ($69.99), the first wireless multi-touch trackpad for Mac desktop computers. The Magic Trackpad has all the Apple design perks we’ve all grown to love featuring a modern and minimalist design covered in aluminum with a multi-touch glass surface. It connects to the desktop through blue-tooth and is powered by two AA batteries. This isn’t for everyone, but it’ll surely satisfy those who’ve gotten so used to their MacBook laptop trackpad that they can no longer use a regular mouse. See more pics below.
