Klipsch & Capitol Records’ Heritage Speaker Line Is the Home Entertainment Upgrade You Need

Audio company Klipsch has teamed up with Capitol Records to release a speaker line layered in a throwback aesthetic. The special edition Heritage blends modern technology showcased in a vintage design to celebrate the pairs seven decades of service. Each model in the new line has a blonde and tan woven grille cloth or ebony salt and pepper cloth option slapped with luxury wood veneer, gunmetal switches, and nobs.

The Capitol One speaker is a semi-portable device with eight-hour rechargeable battery and Bluetooth, as well as inputs for smartphones, computers, and CD players. It also utilized a 4.5-inch woofer for playback.

The Capitol Three is the largest device with a similar look to the One but includes a phono preamp and RCA inputs for turntables, Wi-Fi connectivity for the Klipsch music stream app, and a larger 5.25-inch long-throw woofer.

The third iteration of the Capitol Heresy features three-way compact speakers with a 12-inch woofer, horn-loaded midrange driver, and a tweeter showcased in a wood-veneer cabinet handcrafted in Hope, Arkansas, signed by the folks that built it.

The Capitol One will retail for $400, the Capitol Three for $500, and the Heresy III for $1300 each, which includes a free record from Capitol Records' catalog.

POLIQUANT Meshes Function and Vintage Together in Latest “Functage Youth” Lookbook

After dropping off its first 2018 spring/summer lookbook back in July, highlighting "Phi Slama Jama" and paying homage to George Michael, POLIQUANT returns with another lookbook that gives us an even better look at what the brand calls "Functage Youth." Once again emphasizing the design inspiration behind the season -- one that fuses function and vintage together -- the Japanese brand shows off tops and bottoms that are cut to be worn comfortably while providing utilitarian efficiency.

In addition to the previously mentioned design highlights, we also get a closer look at a cut-up Harvard logo tee and long-sleeve featuring an upside-down Muscle Milk logo.

POLL: Which Lifestyle Supreme Accessory Are You Most Hyped About?

After weeks of teasers, including a cryptic “Crop Fields” video and an Instagram post featuring a jacket emblazoned with artwork by Mark Gonzales, the holiest of hyped labels, Supreme, has finally unveiled its full 2017 fall/winter range of goods. Per usual, a furor was ignited among the blogosphere as we scrolled through, clicked and questioned nearly every item the New York City-based streetwear magnate churned out this season.

In addition to its broad array of hats, tees, tops, sweats, pants and jackets, Supreme didn't disappoint in delivering a heaping batch of accessories, some more unusual than others (naturally). Apparel basics and jewelry aside, the real collector's grails go to the label's now-legendary lifestyle offerings. Remember last season's Coleman dirt bike, money gun, jigsaw puzzle, ping-pong table and NYC MetroCard (which we're pretty sure MTA workers are still traumatized over)? OK, so maybe this season's mix is a tad less extravagant, but it's still going to set social media ablaze nonetheless.

From cops that'll probably deplete this month's paycheck (Fender guitar, Artek Aalto 400 chair) to semi-pragmatic home goods (chopsticks, ashtray, sake set, throw blanket) to downright head-scratchers (collapsible shovel, cash paperweight, carry knife, safety sac), fans lucky enough to cop anything from tomorrow's drop are surely going to flaunt some serious jawn-envy on Instagram.

Which lifestyle accessory are you most hyped about? Let us know via the poll below. The entire collection is set to release on August 17 at Supreme’s NY, LA and European locations, while Japan should see an August 19 release. Supreme’s online store is expected to release the items on August 24.

Maggi Created a Collection of Slick Takes on the PUMA Suede for Faces&Laces 2017

Customization has long been a part of sneaker culture and, to celebrate its DIY spirit, PUMA has called upon Moscow-based legend Maggi to create a range of official custom kicks -- all of which are appearing in honor of Faces&Laces 2017. Part of PUMA's "Experimentarium" theme for the event, the collection takes cues from the Suede, calling upon the brand's most classic silhouette as Maggi transforms it into a number of modern day hybrids. Here the shoe meets the likes of the Ignite Evoknit, Tsugi Shinsei, and Ignite Netfit for a true combo of the current and the classic. Says Maggi himself:

My favorite PUMA model is the Suede. This is classic. They've made a huge contribution to sneaker history. They stood at the roots. They became a legend in street culture even before the concept of street culture itself appeared. My fav one is the very first red with a white Formstripe.

Sadly, you won't have a chance to cop the kicks -- the pairs were each a one-of-one creation made especially for Faces&Laces 2017. If you couldn't hit up the event last weekend, however, you can at least feast your eyes on the customs above.

vivastudio Pays Homage to an Indie Icon With Its 2017 Fall/Winter “GROUNDED” Collection

1995's Wowee Zowee will always be considered an eclectic, experimental followup to 1994's Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain and 1992's Slanted and Enchanted, but for Pavement fans, the LP is just as important to indie rock lore -- Rolling Stone didn't place it twelfth on its "Coolest Albums of All Time" list for nothing. So, as an homage of sorts to Stephen Malkmus and company's mid-'90s classic, Korean imprint vivastudio presents its Fall/Winter 2017 collection. Dubbed "GROUNDED" as a nod to the Wowee Zowee track of the same name, the seasonal release follows the brand's punk- and grunge-tinged Spring/Summer 2017 "Shipping Document" drop and is perhaps its most apt display of rock admiration yet. Here, slouchy cardigans and tees are joined by colorful beanies, striped sweaters, denim jackets, and plaid trousers for a decidedly contemporary and appropriate throwback to the looks of Pavement's heyday.

vivastudio's "GROUNDED" release for Fall/Winter 2017 will soon be available via the brand's own web shop.

mita sneakers & Le Coq Sportif Cook up a First-Ever Hybrid

Late last year, Japanese sneaker stalwart mita tapped fellow countrymen and reggae-centric music heavyweights Mighty Crown for one of the best Le Coq Sportif collabs of all time: a bold rendition of the R 1000 that rocked everything from zebra stripes and leopard spots to scaly leather and the blue, white, and red of the French tricolour. This season, mita and LCS are back with yet another creation, once again tapping the R 1000, but utilizing it to create a brand new silhouette entirely. Dubbed the LCS R 921, the kicks pair the upper of the aforementioned R 1000 with the heel counter and sole of the LCS R XVI, employing the latter design's Dynactif shock absorber system in the process. Best of all though? The gorgeous kicks come swathed in a colorway that mita's creative director, Shigeyuki Kunii, brought to the 30-year-old Eureka a few months back.

Capped off with the likes of Aérotop Open Mesh technology and subtle co-branding, the LCS R 921 "Le Club" drops this Saturday, August 19, at mita and select Le Coq Sportif dealers across the globe.

Essential’s Overdue PH-1 Phone Finally Drops Next Week

The Essential Phone, which started taking pre-orders back in May, will finally start shipping out next week in at least one color. Thanks to some careful email observations -- which offered a color exchange -- 9 to 5 Google has uncovered that the Black Moon color of the smart phone will "ship within seven days" because "[the] Pure White device is still a couple of weeks away." Originally slated to start shipping in June, customers hoping to veer away from market juggernauts Samsung and Apple can breathe a sigh of relief.

With specs that rival said competitors -- a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage -- the PH-1 isn't cheap but is still reasonably priced at $699 USD or $749 USD for the version with a 360-degree camera. Sprint will have the exclusive on the Essential Phone at launch and is supposedly selling it starting on Friday, August 18 with a "First Look" event slated for August 25. To learn more, head over to Essential's website. Will you be switching from Samsung or Apple?
