You can purchase the A Bathing Ape x Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream at Kiehl’s on February 6 in two sizes: a 49 g jar for $32 USD and a 123 g jar for $56 USD.

Japanese Design Firm Nendo Has Crafted Art Out of Chocolates

Recently named “M&O’s Designer of the Year,” Japanese firm Nendo has created nine pieces of chocolate art to furnish a lounge it designed for the furniture and design show Maison&Objet. The creations look more like miniature sculptures than confectioneries, with each one measuring the same dimensions at 26 x 26 x 26mm. Each one takes on a different shape with distinctive textures, such as hollow centered cubes, pointed tips, smooth and rough surfaces, each corresponding to a Japanese expression — for example, “zara-zara” has a rough, file-like surface whereas “poki-poki” is an Escher-esque box frame. The composition of ingredients for all nine designs, meanwhile, remain identical. The chocolates are being produced in a limited quantity of 400 hundred sets and will be available to guests at the Nendo lounge at Maison&Objet from January 23 to 27.

Tokyo Ghostbusters - The 1980s Anime

Genre streams that is! There isn’t an ’80s movie that is more perfectly matched for an anime makeover than Ghostbusters. The story is flawless, the ghosts would feel right at home, plus all the crazy special effects could be easily accomplished through animation. The fact that they were able to do all of that in a live-action movie is part of what makes it such a classic.

This parody simply nails the movie, but you don’t have to take our word for it, you can see for yourself after the jump.

The YouTube channel Nacho Punch is no stranger to 1980s-style anime parodies, but this one feels just right. Set in Tokyo and drawn in a style of animation perfect for the era in which the movie and original animated series were born, the Tokyo Ghostbusters really shine in their one-minute debut.

André Saraiva (Monsieur A) - Mente Interview January 2015

He was one of the first European graffiters to furtively paint in Paris in the 1980s. Thanks to the rather unusual Mr. A, a “naïve” flea-like character that always wears a top hat and which became his trademark, he has been arrested dozens of times and is banned from painting in the streets of both Paris and New York. However, this does not stop his art from continuing to spread throughout the world. André manages to combine the look of a rebellious and provocative artist, while nurturing his pop star aura and demonstrating his ability in the field of public relations and business. He owns the exclusive Le Baron club, which, in addition to being located in an old brothel and a popular haunt of fashion designers, models, musicians and artists, also hosts exclusive parties during Paris’ fashion weeks. However, his empire does not stop there. He is the owner of “Hotel Amour”, the restaurant “La Fidelité”, the “Le Montana” Lounge and the “Black Block” shop, all in the French capital. T…

The 1in11 Campaign focuses on helping the 58 million kids worldwide, or 1 in every 11 children, who are not enrolled in school, and looks to leverage sports and school to help these children reach their maximum potential. The 1in11 Campaign is a cooperative initiative by UNICEF, FC Barcelona, and Reach out to Asia (ROTA). In a show of support, FC Barcelona will send its international superstar Lionel Messi to partner with artists Takashi Murakami and Damien Hirst to host a charity auction at Sotheby’s London on February 12th. The artists have provided portraits of Messi in their respective styles for the auction. For more information, including a list of other participating artists.

Lee “Scratch” Perry Statue: THE MIGHTY UPSETTER

“Through divine revelation, riding on a yellow tractor” the Lee Perry Statue will make its grand entrance on earth! 
The official statue of Lee “Scratch” Perry, king of Dub music and true originator!
Presspop’s second collaboration with the “Upsetter” is a very special statue, sculpted by master sculptor, Tomohiro Yasui and produced completely in JAPAN by Japanese soft-vinyl craftsmen.
A product of highest quality carrying the spirit of Japanese soft-vinyl making.

Once again, artist Archer Prewitt has perfectly captured the true essence of Mr.Perry in his younger years, doing his thing in The Black Ark studio.
There is also beautiful sculpting work on the back side of him dancing.
Comes in reggae colors of red, green, yellow, and ……..? (to be decided)
Get’em while they last! GOOD VIBES!!
