The latest Converse 2012 Spring Chuck Taylor Premium White Leather is draped with a premium white leather. Clean and minimal, the kicks sit atop the usual rubber outsole featuring a contrasting off-white leather and a matching toecap. Completing the uncluttered aesthetic of the shoe is the tonal stitching on the upper and a tan leather medial branding patch. via Kith NYC

The J. W. Anderson x Porter Men’s Show Backpack for spring/summer 2012, seen here in brown and blue.
The collaboration between J.W. Anderson and renowned Japanese luggage specialists Porter is something to behold. A highlight of the designer’s runway show, the bags effectively combine J.W.’s eclectic and artisanal approach to design with Porter’s fabled quality of construction and functionality.
Made from woven, straw-like fibres and soft grained premium leather, the bag zips vertically down the back. It has ventilation and thick padding on the body side, as well as padded adjustable straps and a clipped waist belt for comfort and support. It has four zipped external pockets and is finished with J.W. Anderson leather tags, as well as a Porter brand patch on the rear.
