This past weekend we stopped by HVW8 Art for the private reception for “15 Years Of Gonz and Adidas,” a photo exhibition celebrating Mark Gonzales’ 15 years with the adidas Skateboarding family. As you may know, the man they lovingly call the "Gonz" has been a good friend of the Juxtapoz, Thrasher, and High Speed family for years, and we are so happy to see this show come to fruition. Photos and more after the jump…

Friend of Juxtapoz magazine, and former cover artist from September 2011, Neck Face, has just created a capsule collection with Nike SB that features a snapback hat, Blazer series, t-shirts, and backpack. With Neck Face having obvious ties in the skate world, its nice to see a simple logo treatment and some of the cleanest Blazers you will ever get. Look for the collection now...

If you didn't get enough of the Wes Anderson x Roman Coppola combination last year with the feature film, Moonrise Kingdom, the often-collaborating duo have taken over the direction of Italian fashion giant, Prada, and their new fragrance, Prada Candy. Two guys, one girl (a girl that was Woody Allen's love interest in the excellent Midnight in Paris), some popcorn, French language, and the quirky storyline of one of America's finest, and you got yourself some... Italian fashion.

Every Freitag “Hazzard” bag has a distinct life of its own before ever making its way onto your back. Each bag is typically on the road almost fi ve years before being crafted from recycled truck tarps, with individual design infl uenced by the colors, writing or markings of the tarps. Hand cut in Zurich Switzerland, the Hazzard also uses recycled seat belts as the shoulder straps, meaning every single bag that comes out of the Freitag factory is 100% unique. The pack is perfect for daily use, from storing sketchbooks and electronics, up to a 17” laptop, while also featuring a dry compartment in the front of the bag.

We are sure that Harmony Korine's "let's put former-Disney girls in bikinis for two hours and see if people pay attention and then have James Franco in cornrows" film Spring Breakers will be the most polarizing chunk of pop-culture in 2013. But we aren't here to review the film, we are here to draw your attention to the Todd James designed Spring Breakers tee created with Opening Ceremony that is part of a larger capsule collection of all things Spring Breakers/Spring Break. Wait, people still get a Spring Break?
