This past Thursday fashion designer Robert James held an in-store party/BBQ at his Orchard St. flagship store to announce the winners of the By Robert James photo contest. There was free beer, free burgers and some majorly good vibes. First prize was a Nikkon SLR digital camera, second prize was a $400 By Robert James gift certificate. Our boy Miguel took home 2nd place (see the photo below). He immediately spent that shit on a Jacket. Stoke!

Here’s a look at the Kick-Ass x Vans Movie collabo sneakers. This new yellow and green canvas colorway of the classic Vans Era is inspired by the costume of the main character in the new Kick-Ass movie (based on the Marvel Icon comic book). Kick-Ass stars McLovin from Superbad and that one dude from Ghost Rider and Valley Girl. *plug* *plug*
Vans hooked us up with a pair of these and we are clearly not immune to bribery.
Also, for some reason Chris from TSS is completely obsessed with this movie. More pics after the crump…
So it looks like Vans only made 100 Pairs of these and they will not be available in stores. So, no. You can’t have them. Stop asking.
Malcolm McLaren w/ Buffalo Gals Photo by Bob Gruen
It’s been a rough first half of the year. Malcolm Mclaren died yesterday. He was 64. Though he will undoubtedly be best remembered for his work as manager for UK punk rock act The Sex Pistols (and slightly less for his role as impresario for the red-patent-leather-commie era New York Dolls) his contributions to fashion, music, and popular culture could quite plausibly be described as “immeasurable”. Nearly everything Mclaren touched has influenced the work we do here at Riot Style. To say that Jamie Reid, Vivianne Westwood and Malcolm Mclaren are our style and design forebearers would be an understatement. They brought art to terrible music, and music to terrible art. They brought situationism to the mainstream and the underground to market. We would go so far as to say we ripped them all off… Viva cash. Viva chaos.
As a tribute, Here’s part 1 of a two part video interview SUPREME conducted with Malcolm as a part of their Spring / Summer 09 collection based on the Duck Joint / Buffalo Gals / Duck Rock era work of Mclaren, Keith Haring and the world famous Supreme Team DJ crew.
Let it rock!

We were shocked and saddened by the news of Alexander McQueen’s death. In addition to the current S/S 2010 line from his eponymous Alexander McQueen label mens and womens’ lines, there has been one final collection designed by McQueen for his McQ mens line. Heavily influenced by 60s and 80s skinhead/suedehead culture and featuring designs in striking yellow broadcloath and acidwashed denim, as well as slim tailored suits, this collection represents a designer clearly at the top of his game and may be the last gasp of fashion’s greatest rockstar, and one of the great design minds of the early 21st century.
Mods n’ Skins are back? They never left.
Last but not least, here is our final look at the upcoming R. Crumb x Vans collaboration with the world famous skateboarding / show company.

A follow up on our earlier post about the R. Crumb collection from Vans. Two t-shirts have been released as a part of this collabo. One is the classic Mr. Natural design on natural cotton. The second is Crumb’s iconic Keep On Truckin’ graphic on a light blue T. More pics after the break…
