Even with the changing of season, the sport of skateboarding is rarely affected in California. Releasing its latest lookbook for the first delivery of Fall 2012, HUF maintains its recognition for the sport as a series of photos, shot by Sagan Lockhart, showcase the upcoming footwear and apparel collection. Photographed in Los Angeles, we get a glimpse of an array of pocket T-shirts and caps adorned with the signature “H” logo, new long-sleeve shirt designs, along with a jacket — for those cooler days. The 2012 fall collection is now offered directly through the Hypebeast Store and HUF stockist worldwide.

The August issue of GQ features a conversation with perpetually in-demand designer Mark McNairy and multi-hyphenate extraordinaire Pharrell Williams, who’ve joined forces on the season’s “buzziest new label,” Bee Line for Billionaire Boys Club. The guys preview pieces from the collection and discuss their collaboration. McNairy on the origin of the partnership: “I always liked what Pharrell did with Billionaire Boys Club — it’s like preppy streetwear. We started by collaborating on one shoe. We talked about doing clothes, and eventually it evolved into a full made-in-the-U.S.A. collection.” Pharrell on McNasty: “He’s very quirky and a quiet guy, but also funny as hell. Within all that quirkiness, he’s very confident. The man just clicks.” Check out the full interview from the print issue, reprinted here.
A latest addition to the catalog of Japan’s visvim has come in the form of the YUCCA MOC MID-FOLK for 2012 fall/winter. Taking clear cues from a moccasin style, this casual option has been offered up in a handful of colorways thus far. Prominent stitching is featured on the toe box while a highly breathable suede cowhide is also put forward. Further characterized by a natural cork footbed and molded midsole, a notable contrast between classic and contemporary approaches are present for this release. Pricing has been set at ¥46,000 JPY (approximately $588 USD) from the visvim online shop.

Los Angeles-based streetwear staple The Hundreds presents its lookbook for Fall 2012. Emphasizing an apocalyptic aesthetic throughout the entire line, the new pieces are highlighted by washed-out color palettes, soft edges and distressed detailing.
