Limited Edition Marc Jacobs x Vans collection
Vans fans, Marc Jacob fans and all-round sneaker and art fans, this collaborative collection is for your eyes only, instead of the feet.

Each shoe features the artist’s and designer’s own take on the iconic Vans Slip-On, with a base design by Verhoeven, which lucky fans who managed to cop one of the 125 limited pairs may customise themselves too. The shoes are currently on display at 113 Prince Street, New York City, and 4-26-14, Jingumae, Shibuyaku, Tokyo.
Black Panther teaser trailer
The weekend kicked off last Saturday with the teaser release for the next Marvel superhero to hit the big screen, since his supporting debut in Captain America: Civil War last year. The standalone film takes place after the events of the aforementioned film, where T’Challa, a.k.a Black Panther (played by Chadwick Boseman), returns to his hometown Wakanda to take over the reigns as king after his father’s passing. Black Panther will roll out an all-star cast – which includes Lupita Nyong’o, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, Andy Serkis and Michael B Jourdan – some time in February next year.
Xbox One X
Following their competitor’s limited edition release last week, Microsoft announced the upcoming release of the Xbox One X (available from 7 November onwards), which is already marketed to be “the world’s most powerful console.” The blockbuster will run on the custom silicon Scorpio Engine with a 6 Teraflop GPU – powerful enough to carry out a faster processing for smoother gameplay with the 8-core Custom AMD CPU, more realistic environments and characters with the 4K life-like detailing, and faster loading and bigger storage with a 326GB memory bandwidth and a 1TB storage, respectively.
Dior Homme Winter 2017/2018 campaign
It is yet another star-studded photo call for Dior Homme, following their Spring/Summer 2017 campaign which featured A$AP Rocky and Boy George. With one feet in the present, and another at his favourite ‘80s era, Creative Director for Dior Homme Kris Van Assche brings into the spotlight Manchester by the Sea star Lucas Hedges and Dave Gahan of Depeche Mode, representing the hardcore techno inspiration behind the designer’s recent Autumn/Winter 2017 collection dubbed ‘HarDior’, which highlights the spirit of the rave generation upon tailored fashion pieces.
