TODD JAMES X ADIDAS X PHARRELL
One of Pharrell's latest projects with Adidas, coined Supershell, enlisted an 🔥 roster of artists to design the iconic rubber shell top of the Superstar silhouette. Check how Todd leveraged the sneaker as his canvas + the video of Pharrell praising Todd's art.
MILEY CYRUS TWERKIN'
You may remember when Miley Cyrus made waves by twerkin' in her one-piece "Selfie Bear" outfit along side other life-sized bears during her 2013 VMA performance. What you may not know, is that Todd James was the designer behind her outfit and performance. Read up on Complex's interview with Todd James to hear more about this.
LAYIN' OUT BEATS
MISHKA's blog, Bloglin, is full of dope stuff - so if you're feeling this stash pack, then definitely head there for more. But if you're a producer, then you'll definitely want to head on over. They have Beat Battle contests, in which they lay out a track for you to sample + a deadline. Best remix of the sample wins. Check out one of the winning beats from their first competition below. Enter their next battle if you can chop like KHENSU.
WHEN BEAR MOP WAS JUST A CUB
Co-Founder, Mikhail Bortnik, noted that Bear Mop started as a doodle-on-paper waaay back in the day (AKA early 2000s). At the time, Co-Founder, Greg Rivera was slapping stickers all over NYC. One day they threw up a Bear Mop sticker on the corner of Lafayette Street. And it just stayed there. For years. Which doesn't always happen in NYC. Since then, Bear Mop has become one of their most classic designs/logos.
THE GREEN MONSTER
In 2011, MISHKA put together a short film about a weed delivery boy in Brooklyn. Showcasing the ins-and-outs of a cycle that is far from ordinary, the film highlights some of MISHKA's culture. If this short was made in 2015, would he be delivering via Uber or Postmates? We don't know.
