Porsche Design show off these two new watch styles in celebration of Beverly Hills’ Festival of Watches this October. The Flat6 is made of black stainless steel and features a bold face with three sub-dials for that sharply athletic aesthetic. The titanium Compass Heritage, Porsche Design’s frequently revived style since the 1970s, has a simpler face but opens to reveal a compass housed underneath the bezel. Both are sports watches, but they maintain that luxurious and sophisticated feel. Get the Flat6 for ,920 and the Compass Heritage for ,140.

There were plenty of superstars in attendance last night at the iHeartRadio Music Festival at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, but not many people can turn out an audience like Chris Brown. He came out in a few different outfits including a red leather Marlboro jacket, pair of jeans, and a Cincinatti Reds fitted with his Air Jordan V (5) “Fire Red,” Black Tongues that just recently came back with a retro and that was just the first outfit. After performing a few of his hits, Brown came back out to finish in a black tee, jeans, and a black fedora while rocking a pair of Jays we caught him in a few weeks back at the Rock Life Basketball Event, the Air Jordan II (2) “White/Varsity Red/Black.” The festival wraps up tonight with Drake, Ke$ha, Bruno Mars and Miley Cyrus so stay tuned to Sneakerfiles for more celebrity heat to come!
With this year’s Made In America concert series kicking off next weekend in Philadelphia, Ron Howard announced his Jay Z documentary – which was shot during last year’s inaugural MIA show – will premiere next month at the Toronto International Film Festival. The film itself is not only about Hov’s rise to stardom and his efforts in putting the Budweiser-sponsored festival together, but it is also a love letter of sorts to the City of Brotherly Love. Interludes include one-on-one interviews with random concert goers about what the show means to the community, while Howard also attempts to explore the birthplace of American independence and how it relates to Jay Z’s event. The acclaimed director even took some time to follow a local hip-hop group as it attempts to get added to the bill of acts. The screening of Made In America is scheduled for Saturday, September 7 with ticket information available via TIFF’s website.
Last week we headed off to Los Angeles with the folk from Levi’s XX as part of their Orange Tab re-launch celebrations. Transported back to the ’70s for a few days, at the centre of it all, the Party in Your Pants Festival. Held in the incredible Topanga Canyon, we made our way along Mulholland Drive, said a prayer then navigated the narrow dusty roads high up in the hills in our party bus, all soundtracked by the sounds of KLVC, Levi’s retro radio station set-up to get the city in the mood. The festival, jam packed full of hippie revivalists, false moustache collectors, Levi’s Vintage Clothing fans and goodtime guys ‘n gals brought us back-in-the-day sounds from Dave Grohl & Taylor Hawkins, a denim interior ’70s Gremlin car, a tie-dye tent for all your DIY psychedelia needs, a booze cabin, giant twister, Hell’s Angels security and some of the best hot dog/mac and cheese I’ve ever tasted. That, the mind-blowing views and the 38 degree heat had us all high as kites, not on drugs though kids, on Life, ya know? Check out the the event in our gallery, the intro below and look out for our interview with Levi’s XX design director Miles Johnson coming soon…

Last weekend the Crepe City crew turned it on for Old London Town with their 8th and most bumping sneaker festival to date. Once again as opposed to the traditional basketball-centric product we see at American sneaker events, there was an abundance of vintage and retro running and training heat. Check some recap snaps courtesy of Mark Watson above, and stay tuned for the next instalment.
The end of July means one thing and one thing only in Japan…Fuji Rock Festival. Nestled into the foothills of the beautiful ski resort town of Naeba, undoubtedly the most amazing festival location in the world, Fuji Rock has played host to some of the world’s biggest live acts and DJs since it’s beginnings in…

Road trips don’t get much doper than this. The second WHEELS and WAVES festival went down in and around French town Biarritz a couple of weeks back and it looked loud, with big bikes revved up and rock bands shredding speakers. There were also plenty of classic cars shining in the summer sun and opportunities to hit the surf – didn’t see many boards on the back of bikes though. Flick through the shots from the festival and a video recap below.

A nice round up of events at Hermès Festival de Metiérs in London’s Saatchi gallery. A look behind the scenes at the making of some of the companies most popular accessories. Having visited the exhibition ourselves we can confirm that putting together an expensive watch takes the steadiest of hands and the tiniest of tweezers, an incredible opportunity to see some carefully honed skills in action. PORT take us through the exhibition in this smart little film, press play.

What started out as a novel idea at Coachella to expand its festivities to two sequential weekends has spread like a beautiful contagion to other festivals throughout the states like Austin City Limits (ACL) and now Sasquatch 2014. The driving factor for expansion at Coachella and ACL was to open up the iconic festivals, that often sell out immediately, to more people, providing a near identical experience with similar lineups on both weekends. But Sasquatch is different. They’re going in a different direction.
Sasquatch 2014 will run for two weekends, but they won’t be back-to-back. The first weekend will be the weekend of May 23rd through 25th; and the second weekend will run for 4th of July weekend, the 4th through 6th. More importantly, the lineups will be completely different. No carbon copies here. Different seasons, different bands, and a new format may be a game changer enticing locals and out-of-towners alike to hit Sasquatch twice in one year. Stay tuned for more details…

In Japan and perhaps around the world too, summertime means there are plenty of outdoor festivals to check out. Famous festivals such as Summer Sonic and Fuji Rock Festival attract record number of crowds each year, drawing international musicians to make their way into the Land of Rising Sun. Stussy and TOWER RECORDS worked together to compile this Summer Festival Goods Collection, consisting of t-shirts and portable outdoor chair. The latter was produced in conjunction with outdoor company, Coleman, and comes fitted with tassels on the armrest and bottom of the seat. All three pieces will go on sale from this Friday, June 7 from Stussy Japan flagship stores and webshop, alongside TOWER RECORDS stores in Japan.
