We have teamed up with adidas and Pharrell to reimagine the iconic Stan Smith in full color with summer-ready palm tree patterns. The Palm Tree pack is the first to feature kicks and apparel, with a matching track jacket, t-shirt, tank top, and shorts. The palm tree pattern was inspired by an early ICE CREAM shoe, which never released. The prints are emblazoned on soft Nappa leather, available in vivid green and orange-red colorways. The red pair features a frosted red midsole while the green pair is featured on a classic white Stan Smith silhouette. Each pair comes with two additional colorful lace options, in addition to the white laces that come on the shoe. Our Helmet Head graphic is featured on the tongue, our Floating B logo is shown on the left heel tab, and the classic adidas logo is featured on the right heel tab. The Palm Tree Pack will release in-store and online on Saturday, June 25th at official Flagship locations and select stockists.

Xavier Veilhan’s new double exhibition at Galerie Perrotin’s New York and Paris locations explores the links between music and the visual arts. It features sculptures of some of the most renowned pop music producers, including the Neptunes (Pharrell and Chad), Quincy Jones, Lee “Scratch” Perry, Rick Rubin, and others. The project’s unique artistic process involves combining digital body scan technology with reference portraits sketched by the artist. “Music” opens in New York on Feb. 26 and in Paris on March 7, with both editions ending on April 11.

UPDATE – So it’s not the best day for a signing in NYC due to the weather. We’ll get as many people out of the environment as possible. To be fair, we have set-up tickets which will break everyone up in groups that way you’ll avoid having to wait outside. We have gift cards to the Starbucks on our corner where you can enjoy a beverage and stay warm until your group’s time. Books can be purchased at the book anytime before 7PM as well.
The New York book signing will be at our Flagship Store November 7th from 7PM-9PM. The book can be purchased at the store(books bought at our Flagship Store will get priority access to the signing, we can not guarantee access for books bought at other locations but will do our best to accommodate you). The following signing will be at Colette in Paris on Saturday November 10th from 4PM-6PM.
Still a little confused? Here is the full explanation with the press release after the jump. There’s some cursing in this so you might want to watch it out of the office!
