Apparently Nike wanted to get one last drop in before the new year and it’s for the ladies. Originally scheduled for a spring release, this women’s Dunk Premium focuses on sharp spring tones of light green, yellow, blue, dusty rose, and white. The Dunk also features fiber-optical illumination and Nike’s Zoom Air cushioning.
To everyone who thought that these Nike Air Max 1 Premium SP’s were dropping in ’09, here’s a heads up folks, they just arrived at Rime and are resting on my feet right now! These Air Max 1 Premiums feature Nike’s trademark safari print in a light grey, black and white color scheme with a black leather collar. But like any rare big game, they be won’t lingering around too long with all the hunters lurking around in the area.
Stealing the spotlight from the rest of the toys we currently have in stock are these one-off, custom Kidrobot Dunny Christmas ornaments from Nasty Neil of Wasted Talent. The attention to detail on these pieces is simply unmatched. Each one has been painstakingly hand-painted and modified in order to create a completely original character you won’t find anywhere else. We received 12 Dunny ornaments in all but with Christmas fast approaching, time is running out on snagging one of these for your tree because once they are gone, they’re gone good!
This is the second time we have had the privilege of showcasing and selling Nasty Neil’s work at Rime. We were first introduced to his talents back in July at our Kidrobot “In It For The Money” show which featured over 30 of Neil’s customized Munnys and Dunnys. Even though he may still be under the radar to some, this kid is no stranger to the game. Nasty Neil has made customs for Chingo Bling, Paul Wall, Stacks & Bundles Clothing, Goliath NY, Scumlife, Sneaker Bistro Boutique, and YRB Magazine.
Hope you enjoyed the preview, we have many more available for sale in the store, but as I mentioned above, these won’t be hanging around for long. I already have my eye on the one that will be hanging on my tree this winter.
“An Eye for an Eye Leaves the Whole World Blind” is the ominous warning running throughout SSUR’s latest project with DC. When designing the first half of the project, SSUR III, the artist featured a military theme as a cautionary tale against war. Earthy and dark greens, blacks and browns set off with hits of orange. As with all the other Artist Projects™ he’s done with DC, “PAY ME” is stamped across the lace holders.
The SSUR III is available now but our stock is depleting faster than our country’s defense budget so I wouldn’t hesitate to pull the trigger on this one.
This lowbrow group art show is one not to miss with five solid artist on it’s roster including the extremely talented tattoo artist and painter Byron Velasquez. Byron worked out of the renowned Rising Dragon Tattoo shop for eight years where he built up an impressive celebrity clientele consisting of David La Chapelle, Todd Oldman, and rocker Robi Draco Rosa, just to name a few. You can now find him at his own tattoo shop named Abstract Black Tattoo NYC.
This is a show I’ve been looking forward to seeing since I heard the curator behind it was Frankie Velez. His hustle never stops to amaze me –from his early days as a B-Boy to his work as a fashion designer, artistic manager, and event planner. So if you already have plans this Saturday I would start rehearsing your excuse to break them so you can join me at Teneleven Bar/Gallery for the show. The opening reception runs from 7 pm – 10 pm with an afterparty to follow.
We want to thank everyone for coming out last night and showing their support for Rime’s launch of 100 Styles And Running as well as extend our thanks to Chad, Evan, and our man Chris for making it all happen. The preview of the spring collection that was on display looked nuts and I’m already calling dibs on at least one pair I saw in a size 10 that will definitely become a staple piece in my wardrobe come Spring. For those of you who couldn’t make it, or those of you who were there but only have vague memories of the evening, we have added a few photos of what to expect from 100 Styles this Spring.
