Famed streetwear imprint A Bathing Ape has unveiled a camouflage-inspired tote bag for the summer months ahead. The Japanese powerhouse has put a unique spin on the CAMO print that is emblazoned across this accessory by incorporating a panel type design. A standout detail here is the clever utilization of the BAPE logo found on select panels of the print. This tote bag is made from 100% cotton and features a black cotton base and handles to keep away those pesky stains. A Bathing Ape's PANEL CAMO TOTE BAG retails for ¥15,540 JPY (approximately $155 USD) over at the brand's web store.

Japan's Journal Standard returns in time for spring with a new lookbook for the coming season. Cool, classic and eclectic, the brand/retailer's Spring/Summer 2014 collection combines layers, patterns and both dressy and casual styles for a look that's put together, but still relaxed enough for warmer weather. Of note are softly-tailored blazers in solid shades and camouflage motifs, military and athletic-inspired outerwear and collaborative pieces by Gitman Vintage and Czech outdoor goods label, Tilak. Take a look at the collection here.
Saint Laurent's SL/02H Court Classic sneaker is back this season in a new black and white colorway.

Growing up all over New York City from Far Rockaway, East New York, Bushwick, to the South Bronx, INDIE184 was exposed to graffiti from an early age, taking notes of the damage seen on train rides and walks through the neighborhood. With CASINO142 offering guidance on street bombing and COPE2 helping to improve her outline work, INDIE honed her skills, taking influences from New York legends such as SEEN, DONDI and JonOne in the use of bright colors and classic hand styles. Today, INDIE continues to push the envelope for female graffiti writers, making an impact worldwide via gallery showings in addition to streetwear designs for her label Kweenz Destroy. We caught up with INDIE at the year's POW! WOW! where she shared with us her travel Essentials. Pertaining to her love for bright hues, we see a cosmetics pouch which she designed for MAC, alongside a number of unique stickers and name cards that show off INDIE's mixed-media approach.
