While the summer season begins to draw to a close from a retail perspective, it has only just begun in terms of warm weather and the clothing needed to go with it. And with the heat comes the need for sartorial inspiration. With that in mind we're pleased to present a new online feature – an editorial featuring the Spring-Summer '14 White Mountaineering collection, shot by Jimi Franklin and styled by Masako Ogura.

This spring Beams opened the doors of their Harajuku store to Pilgrim Surf + Supply, and the two companies worked together to develop a selection of special products for the shop-in-shop in Tokyo. Head Beams buyer Alex Nakada travelled to New York last summer to discuss various collaborations for the project with Pilgrim's owner, Chris Gentile, and Battenwear designer, Shinya Hasegawa. This process was captured by photographer Dave Potes for our latest online feature.

In the wake of all the exposure, after the dust has settled on previous collections, and as we await next season's product at the end of another year, it's the ideal time to consider Gyakusou in a broader context. Alongside some of the iconic imagery created around the brand, David Hellqvist examines a collaboration between Nike and Undercover that has been successful in design, performance, and sales terms ever since its arrival in 2010.

Online Feature: Rose Bowl

Photographer Sarah Soquel Morhaim and writer Liz Armstrong both have an affinity for LA's legendary Rose Bowl – a large-scale, world-renowned flea market that takes place on the second Sunday of every month, in the shadows of the famous sports stadium in Pasadena. The pair visited the market before the break of dawn, to witness and record firsthand the dedicated buyers who pay a premium rate to get first dibs on the available wares – donning flashlight headbands to rummage through piles of clothing and other rarities in the darkness. As the sun came up, and the pedestrian throngs arrived, Sarah and Liz spent the remainder of the day documenting the comings and goings of the regular sellers, bargain hunters, and rare memorabilia collectors.
