Throughout the month of November, a brand new installation from footwear label Eytys will be on display at Dover Street Market in London. Entitled "Marbling and Modernism," the installation was created in conjunction with young Stockholm-based interior designer Sara Wetterqvist. A "combination of chemistry, craftsmanship and chance," the display coincides with the release of the brand's Fall/Winter 2013 collection (a range that incorporates unique paper-marbling techniques throughout its packaging) and sees various marbling experimentations across transparent plexiglass, mirrors and plywood - each created by treating the surfaces, water-baths and paints with a variety of different natural extracts and chemicals, including algues and aluminum potassium sulfate. Eytys's Fall/Winter 2013 collection of footwear will soon be available via the HYPEBEAST Store while "Marbling and Modernism" is set to make its way to Tokyo's Dover Street Market Ginza this December.

Italian sportswear stalwart Stone Island has released a video highlighting one of its more technically advanced pieces for Fall/Winter 2013: the Ice Jacket. Using thermo-sensitive materials within the coat, the Ice Jacket changes its color depending on temperature or atmospheric change in a given environment. A polyurethane film is applied over the jacket's polyester mesh base, which has been infused with a myriad of small pigmented molecules and changes color as a chemical reaction. No matter what color the jacket turns though, it also ensures warmth through a specialized polyester fiber quilting within the lining. Enjoy the video above, and head over to Stone Island's website for further information.

Known for its militaristic influences and polarizing use of camouflaged prints, maharishi teams with Casio G-Shock to create a timepiece inspired by the modern day pacifist prepper. These self-sustaining individuals, or survivalists, are actively preparing for a possible disruption in the social or political order in which our basic food, medical, energy and defense needs may not be provided by the state or private enterprises. Based on the prepper’s strong will, the two labels chose to rework the GW9400 Rangeman watch that was specifically designed for first-response professionals and combatants. The collaborative GW9400J features solar power functionality, a compass, atomic timekeeping, a Super Illuminator LED backlight, a thermometer, a barometer, an ultra-rugged casing and so much more. To commemorate the release of this limited-to-20 joint effort that also includes a USB drive and protective cloth, maharishi employed the talented Norbert Schoerner to direct a short film highlighting the English brand’s G-Shock creation as well as its fall/winter clothing collection. The maharishi x G-SHOCK Pacifist Preppers GW9400J is currently available at maharishi’s London flagship as well as online for £350 GBP (approximately $562 USD).
