Apologies for the ‘old news’ but I’ve rediscovered this 2011 Bugatti Veyron Speedboat and still love it! I think it’s well worth a repost as the design is stunning.

It’s a concept design from May 2011. Designed by Ben Walsh and inspired by the “Sang-Bleu” coloured Bugatti Veyron.

Nike Football – “Risk Everything”

May 14, 2014

In the run up to the ever-nearing 2014 FIFA World Cup, Nike has created a brand new football campaign. “Risk Everything” is a series of three 15-second films, the first of which launches today and stars football legend Wayne Rooney. Each animated short features a different member of the England team, all showing how risk is just an integral part of their DNA. The first film, titled “Attempt the Unthinkable,” opens with Rooney taking the ball in a match against Brazil and as he makes his way to the goal, the opposition’s team bus is driven straight onto the pitch to distract him. Little do they know that Rooney’s laser beam shots are no match for that kind of obstruction.

Stay tuned for two more films to be unveiled later in the week, starring Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Jack Wilshere in “Fear Nothing” and “Never Play it Safe.”

Nike Football – Magista Boot

March 7, 2014

nike-magista-boot-01

With the release of the groundbreaking Magista boot, Nike is set to do no less than redefine how a football boot both looks and performs. Nike Flyknit technology is engineered for football for the very first time, representing four years of R&D in the Nike Sport Research Lab and helped by direct feedback from the likes of Andrés Iniesta of Barcelona and German forward Mario Gotze. Flyknit technology delivers a sock-like fit and allows for strength and support to be knitted directly into the boot. Additionally, a new mid-cut Dynamic Fit Collar is good for a more locked-down fit and increased tactile awareness of the ground and the ball. For protection from water and cold, Nike’s design team developed a special application of NIKESKIN — rated at less than 0.1 mm thick – across the Flyknit upper. Improved 360-degree rotational traction via conical studs and a Pebax-and-nylon plate round out the benefits. Stay tuned for release details.

Levi’s Vintage Clothing have launched their Spring / Summer 2014 collection inspired by the spirit and heritage of American workwear. All fits, fabrics and details are replicated from bygone eras, Levi’s sources materials from their own archive in their latest collection based around the 1939 World Fair which took place on Treasure Island – a man-made island in the San Francisco Bay.  Levi’s joined the hometown festivities by building an all-electric mechanical rodeo. The futuristic attraction featured 31 wooden puppets that were carved in the likeness of real-life rodeo stars and dressed in custom-made waist overalls, rodeo shirts and hats. To celebrate the 75th anniversary of this moment in the brand’s history, Levi’s reproduced a selection of the garments worn by the puppets in the all-electric, mechanical rodeo.

Katherine Switzer 1967 Boston Marathon

Katherine Switzer 1967 Boston Marathon

In 1967, five years before women were officially allowed to compete, Kathrine Switzerwas the first woman to enter and complete the Boston Marathon as a numbered entry.  She registered under the gender-neutral name of “K.V. Switzer”.

After realizing that a woman was running, race organizer Jock Semple went after Switzer shouting, “Get the hell out of my race and give me those numbers.” however, Switzer’s boyfriend and other male runners provided a protective shield during the entire Marathon.

These photographs taken of the incident made world headlines, and in 1974 Kathrine later went on to win the NYC marathon with a time of 3:07:29.
