Y-3 2014 Fall/Winter Editorial by GRIND Magazine

Hyperbeast - Tue, 2014-08-19 21:04

Following Wish's editorial published just last month, here Japanese purveyor GRIND asserts its own take on Y-3's exciting Fall/Winter 2014 collection. The eclectic sportswear-based range from Yohji Yamamoto looks especially elegant here under GRIND's curation, which opts to highlight the flowing cloaks and trench coats, slick neoprene bombers, and color-blocked blazers of the collection. The styling here does well to showcase the range in a more folksy, Americana light – perhaps making it more palatable for casual fans of Y-3. Enjoy the latest editorial from GRIND here, and head to Y-3's web shop to check out the current offerings.

Hyperbeast - Tue, 2014-08-19 21:04

Whether its Stuart Weitzman billboards in Flatiron or spot-lit H&M advertisements on Sunset Strip, you'd be hard-pressed to find a nook or cranny unfamiliar with Gisele Bündchen. This popularity, it seems, is by no small consequence. The accomplished Brazilian beauty was handsomely compensated for her work in 2014, earning a cool $47 million in endorsements and thus reigning supreme on Forbes' annual "Highest Paid Models" list. Contracts with Chanel and Carolina Herrera, Pantene and other brands underline Bündchen's bundles, which stand fittingly model height to that of Doutzen Kroes, the runner-up on Forbes' fiscal pageant. Head over to Forbes for the full listing of this year's top models.

Bandit9 Bishop Motorcycle

Hyperbeast - Tue, 2014-08-19 21:04

In contrast with Bandit9's Nero series – a range of imposing, bullying and aggressive motorbikes – the latest from the Beijing-based workshop represents a more refined take on the roadster. Based on the frame of a Honda Supersport, Bandit9's Bishop features a full custom aluminum unibody powered by an exposed 90cc-125cc engine. Though decidedly minimalistic, it's details like the body paneling – offered in walnut, oak, or teak burl – and the quartz-encased LED brake lights, and slim charcoal grey suede seat that make this cycle so undeniably special. With production limited to just nine models, interested parties should head to the brand site before these Bandit 9 Bishops hit the road.
