OP-ED: Adidas' return to respectability.

  A comprehensive view of Adidas’ recent surge and return to respectability . Words by Marianna Mukhametzyanova Adidas is particularly strong right now. The brand is doing some impressive stuff, whether you like the NMD and Ultra Boost or not, and the quality and price of their retros is really good.

The Rise and Fall of BAPE

'The Rise and Fall of BAPE' first appeared in the 5th Issue of Pages Magazine.      The first time I saw a pair of BAPESTA’s was in middle school when I witnessed two classmates transfer a yellow patent leather pair from backpack to backpack with an amount of secrecy that would make you think they were trading possession of a priceless artifact. It was at that time I first saw a pair up close and it will forever be engrained in my memory as the first moment I came across an item of the Japanese clothing powerhouse, A Bathing Ape.     The year was 2006, Clipse had just dropped their classic album ‘Hell Hath No Fury’ and Kanye...
