We’ve been working on developing accessories exclusively for our Flagship locations. Our EVA Ashtray and Helmet Candle are now available to purchase at our NYC Flagship and Webstore. The EVA Ashtray features our Primary Life Support graphic in the center of the triangular glass shape, measuring approximately 3.5″ in width. Our Helmet Candle has a green tea scent, measures approximately 4.5″ in height, and features our Helmet Head graphic on the frosted glass. The candle comes packaged in a black box with our Classic Curve logo in silver ink printed at the top of the box. During our development process, we held votes via Snapchat on which graphic you liked best for the ashtray and which wick to use for the candle (bamboo vs. cotton). A big thanks to all of you who voted and shared your opinion with us. They will be arriving to our Flagships in Europe and Japan soon. Hit the jump for more images.
The British Museum currently has a 5,000 year old pay stub from the ancient Mesopotamian city of Uruk, located in modern-day Iraq. Back in the day, the people in Uruk used to exchange goods for money, played board games, and sent letters on clay tablets utilizing a picture language called cuneiform. Pay stubs were also common and Alison George has just explained in New Scientist what was written on the 5,000 year old tablet. “We can see a human head eating from a bowl, meaning ‘ration,’ and a conical vessel, meaning ‘beer.’ Scattered around are scratches recording the amount of beer for a particular worker.” The concept of getting paid in beer for work is not new as there are records of workers receiving beer in ancient Egypt and the Middle Ages, but this tablet is currently the world’s oldest known paystub. Would you work for beer?

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. Hit the jump for more images and check our Snapchat (bbc_icecream) for a closer look.
