I currently have Dune playing in the background, the third time I have watched it since six o’clock this morning. I’ve been waiting with bated breath for this film to debut, and since I’m an early riser, I just didn’t feel the need to wait any longer. My verdict, if you didn’t already guess from the amount of views? It’s fabulous. The story, the cinematography, the pacing: all of it is sublime. But I really didn’t expect anything less from director Denis Villeneuve.
His flick, though, isn’t the only stellar release this week. Pangaia dropped its first denim line, and the jean jacket, in particular, is beautiful. Louis Vuitton has a bright and bold collection that’ll have Judy Garland singing. Timex and Carhartt WIP came out with a watch that is equal parts dope and durable. 18 East and Standard Issue are at it again. And there’s a new fragrance that gives a whole new meaning to an airy scent. And like Dune, all are available now, and worth revisiting several times over.

Nettle Denim Jacket
Pangaia, the brand behind some of our favorite sustainably made sweats, has ventured into the great blue yonder, also known as the world of denim.

LVSE Flower Quilted Hoodie Jacket
For his latest capsule collection at Louis Vuitton, called “A Piece of the Rainbow,” Virgil Abloh is taking us back in time, with two stops on the route. The first is in 2018, when he presented his first collection for the maison, which was chock full of bold, sporty fits in a spectrum of hues. The second is to 1939, when a young Judy Garland sang a song that made us dream bigger and brighter.

S.R. STUDIO. LA. CA’s latest collection, called Insect Index, has done just that. Designer Sterling Ruby has invented insect species, placing the written taxonomy on shirts, buckets hats, bags, and hoodies—a nice melding of science and style.
The NBA season has officially opened this week, folks, and its time to pick your champion. Born x Raised has clearly picked its squad, collaborating with the L.A. Lakers on a collection of hoodies, caps, and sweatshirts that feature the team’s logo and colors done in an airbrush style.

The Redux Gym Bag
For many of us, when it comes to working out and going to the gym, the word redux is definitely apt. Taking this sentiment to heart are the folks at Stuart & Lau, who have a released the niftiest gym bag around in their new Tokyo collection. Completely waterproof and featuring a number of hidden pockets and compartments, this carryall will definitely help you get back on the treadmill.

A brown fleece jacket built for cold expeditions, but with the kind of fine details (like yellow patches and zippers) that make it chic enough for an outing in the city.
