Yet another testament to plaid’s seasonal supremacy: the heavy rock ‘n roll influence on this season’s styles. Starting with the rock-your-socks-off-factor that plaids bring to the table, rock styles are speeding up the tempo with stud-crusted spotlight pieces, exposed zippers, destroyed denim, and of course, the classic rock tee. It’s a hostile take-over of black and metal. Are you ready to rock?

Smile on Your Brother: It’s more than just a sweet-sounding name, although we do think it’s pretty sweet. Smile on Your Brother is a skate art (literally, skateboard art) exhibition that features creations from international artists, including Element Eden Advocate Amber B (shown above). Besides offering up the obvious eye candy, the shows help to support disadvantaged youth by contributing skateboards, providing them with an outlet for constructive freedom and helping to push them to achieve their goals.
