Last Friday, our close friend Ricky Sosa launched his Disembodied art show at Fortune Sound Club. The show consisted of handcrafted pieces of art that are based on ceremonial traditions and rich mythology. In case you missed it or just want to relive the experience, take a look at our photos below:

NIKE - AIR TECH CHALLENGE II QS / WHITE

Engineered for performance and dressed for the streets, the revival of the Air Tech Challenge II ushers in another original colorway. Released during the glory days of tennis attire, the Air Tech Challenge II was groundbreaking in more ways than one. Their speedy lineage helped cement them as a modern day street classic, while their electric look brought color and excitement to the game.

The timeless design by the legendary Tinker Hatfield was furious in its form, equipped with a synthetic leather upper, a full-foot stabilizer and Nike Air cushioning that worked in unison with an external molded heel counter to withstand the athleticism of Nike’s most recognized tennis stars at the time. As an added element, the third chapter in the resurgence of the Air Tech Challenge II serves up an ace with an added bonus. A playing card is included in-box to celebrate the ad campaigns that surrounded the revered Nike Tennis model during their original introduction in 1989. Available this Saturday July 26th in store and online - NIKE AIR TECH CHALLENGE II QS

To assemble the “Disembodied” Art Exhibit, Ricky worked very closely with the Wixáritari community (one of Mexico's most revered indigenous groups) to handcraft the some of most unique and inspiring patterns. These pieces embody incredibly spiritual works of art based on ceremonial traditions and rich mythology.

The “Disembodied” collectible pieces illusively reveal how a creative indwelling spiritual life resides within the body—an intelligent vital energy that it is waiting to come to light to lead the unfolding of becoming a fully being.

Ricky has the utmost respect for the Wixáritari community because they are indeed revolutionaries who dare to hang on to their traditional beliefs and are resistant to change despite of the circumstances.

The “Disembodied” Art Exhibit will be presented on July 25th 2014 at the Fortune Special Project Space in Vancouver, BC Canada.

If you skate, there's a good chance you were first introduced to Palace through their ill VHS edits. If you're an Internet style guy, you likely found the brand on an obscure, underground blog, fashion forum, or on the back of your favorite rapper's creative director. And if you're still caught up that the logo looks like that of tech site The Verge, then hit the back tab ASAP: you're in the wrong place.

It doesn't matter where you first came in contact with the irreverent coolness of the British brand. What's evident is that the core skate company has become coveted in certain menswear, streetwear, and hip-hop circles. Yet even in the face of such cross-cultural flaunting, trend-phobic skaters still find it fresh and relevant, thus striking a rare balance between being highly bloggable and still authentic in the eyes of its originally intended audience.

One could argue Supreme paved the way for brands like Palace. Perhaps the impossible triangle couldn't exist without the box logo. But that's mostly an irrelevant argument, as Palace has carved its niche in the cool-consuming culture at large not by following a formula, but by simply doing what it wants. Supreme cast Kermit the Frog and Kate Moss to deliver an explicit message: We're the cool kids. Meanwhile, Palace is voluntarily donned by the likes of A$AP RockyDrake,Rihanna, and Virgil Abloh because it is cool—no subversive marketing required. "We don't send anything to anyone, except our riders really," says Tanju. "I like hooking up people that skate, and my friends. Not pop stars, stylists, etc."
