The Endless Summer is one of my all-time favorite movies, so I never quite get tired of seeing product inspired by the film despite its ubiquity. To commemorate its 50th anniversary, Dusters partnered with Bruce Brown, the film’s director, on a vibrant set of completes. Take your pick between the cruiser and longboard. Plus, both come with inlaid bottle openers – neat touch.
“That looks like me.” That was my thought when I scrolled across this pullover on Without Walls yesterday. I even sent it to my co-worker to tell her it’s my new favorite thing. Like, if I turned into a piece of apparel, I’d bet it’s this. [or this. Close enough.] Described as a “bonded foam” fabric, I’m assuming that the unofficial way to say neoprene or a similar quality.
Weekend, I mean, Summer happenings//
Although unplanned, not posting for most of the Summer was pretty easy to do. Not much happened, and, whatever did, I didn’t bother with many pictures. Here’s a catch-up if you’re so inclined.
“I am always with the line from Voltaire, that ‘Everything that needs an explanation, isn’t worth the explanation.’ So what can I explain?
By now you’ve seen what I did? It’s fun! In fact I had several ideas and Louis Vuitton wanted to do them all—why not? All of the boxing things are related.
I know more and more women—and men too—who have started to box. I thought it was something that one should do, if possible, in a very expensive way. So I designed the huge piece of luggage with the punching-ball in it. I also wanted to make a bag that was inspired by that idea; it comes in different sizes. We made a special carpet with an application for beginners: where and how to put your feet and how to move. There is also a little bag with boxing gloves, it can be taken to the boxing appointment—I wanted to have a special Monogram for that too. It was really very childish, simple thinking!”
I won’t pretend that I always understand Karl Lagerfeld, but I’m not sure he does either. While incredibly excessive, I love his contribution to the Louis Vuitton “Iconoclasts” capsule and find it much more interesting than just another bag. On the flip side, I also don’t want to know who buys this.

I’m not sure if I’ve ever truly disliked a NTM release, but I have definitely overly loved and admired many of the drops they’ve done, especially in 2014. July’s new 3-pack looks like another stellar set to me as Nike pairs up with husband-wife team Flavio Samelo and Jayelle Hudson, creating unique looks by combing the two artists work into one. Which is your favorite?
Also, has anyone out there ever purchased an NTM product? Worth the money in your opinion?
+ Summer is officially in swing, and I decided to kick it off with a little bit of paddleboarding in the marina and a pitstop for Thrifty’s ice cream. I also proudly paraded my newly purchased vintage California flag, which I had been scouring sites and markets for for some time.
+ Anyone participate in International Surfing Day and Go Skateboarding Day on 6/20 & 6/21, respectively?
+ Happenings: The World Cup is still in full force, and Wimbledon is here.
+ If you’re interested: FIFA requirements for uniforms.
Have a good week!
