LeBron James will be taking home his fourth MVP title this year and in the process, becoming only the second player in NBA history to win four MVP titles in the span of five year. To mark this historic occasion, designers at Nike and its Nike Basketball division created a special LeBron X “MVP” edition. A culmination of LeBron’s past achievements, especially those during the 2012-13 season when he led the Miami Heat to a 27-game winning streak, the LeBron X “MVP” features all of the design details throughout the LeBron X product cycle since the new design’s introduction back in August 2012. And with launch of this special footwear, it is also Nike’s tribute to one of the greatest player the game of basketball seen thus far. More information about release available come soon.

Design is a creative process—most often involving a client and a designer and usually completed in conjunction with producers of form— undertaken in order to convey a specific message to a targeted audience. The term “graphic design” can also refer to a number of artistic and professional disciplines that focus on visual communication and presentation.
The field as a whole is also often referred to as Visual Communication or Communication Design. Various methods are used to create and combine words, symbols, and images to create a visual representation of ideas and messages. A graphic designer may use a combination of typography, visual arts and page layout techniques to produce the final result. Graphic design often refers to both the process (designing) by which the communication is created and the products (designs) which are generated.

In April 1994, Supreme opened its doors on Lafayette Street in downtown Manhattan and became the home of New York City skate culture. At its core was the gang of rebellious young New York skaters and artists who became the store’s staff, crew and customers.
Supreme grew to be the embodiment of the downtown culture, playing an integral part in its constant regeneration. Skaters, punks, hip-hop heads – the young counter culture at large – all gravitated towards Supreme.
While it grew into a downtown institution, Supreme established itself as a brand known for its quality, style and authenticity.
Over its nineteen year history, Supreme has worked with some of our generation’s most groundbreaking designers, artists, photographers and musicians – all who have helped continue to define its unique identity and attitude.
This new Skateboard Deck Floral Rose by Sepreme is available here.

Disturbing, macabre and moving: the images in this book examine our endu- ring desire to make peace with death. Chosen from the spectacular collection of a death-obsessed print dealer from Chicago, Richard Harris, they include art from an array of time periods, places and traditions.
Works by Linda Connor, Robert Mapplethorpe, Andy Warhol, Otto Dix and Francisco Goya are shown alongside Renaissance vanitas paintings, Japanese Ukiyo-e woodcuts, photographs of Mexico’s Day of the Dead and eerie snapshots from the 1900s of anonymous sitters posing with skulls and skeletons.
The book is divided into five sections (Contemplating Death, The Dance of Death, Violent Death, Eros & Thanatos, and Commemoration), each accompanied by a short introductory text. In these pages we are presented with some of the many faces of death: violent and cruel, benign and playful; death the friend and death the enemy. The epitome of terrible beauty, this book is a reminder of the end awaiting us all.

LEVI’S has teamed up with Liberty of London on a womenswear collection for spring. The classic American label has produced a selection of denim separates that feature two new Liberty prints – created exclusively for the partnership.
The partnership marks the first time that Levi’s women’s department has collaborated with another label.
“It’s been such an inspiring creative process to share our American heritage and perspective with this quintessential British brand to create a collection that is feminine and whimsical with a modern edge,” said Jenny Carlin, Levi’s senior designer.
The denim silhouettes featured in the collection were sourced from the Levi’s archive, representing some of the brand’s most popular pieces. Similarly, the garden flower prints were based on a Liberty pattern from the Seventies – redrawn with watercolour pencils and put into a repeat design – and the bandana print was based on a Pointillist painting from the Liberty archive that dates back to 1940.
“Working with the world leader in denim has opened up our print house to a new global customer,” said Ed Burstell, Liberty London managing director. “We are honoured to be the first brand Levi’s has partnered with on their women’s line and can’t wait to have the collection swinging in our store.”
The Levi’s X Liberty London collection features 15 pieces including the famous Levi’s 501 shorts, a trucker jacket, boyfriend jeans, a bustier top and a selection of accessories, with prices ranging from £75 to £210.
The collection will be available to buy exclusively at Liberty London on Regent Street from today, before landing in select Levi’s stores worldwide in early May. It will also be available to buy online at liberty.co.uk and levi.com next month. Thanks to Sarah Karmali and vogue.co.uk for the news.
