Rockin Jelly Bean is a classic Japanese artist in the world of salaciousness that we have covered in the magazine over the years, most recently the Pushead-curated Halloween issue of 2009. The artist has recently teamed up with Canadian jean makers Naked & Famous and Japan's oldest denim maker Big John on a special collaboration that features Bean's work on the leather patch and labeling. A little dirty picture or two should fit nicely on your butt.

The Juxtapoz office is pretty certain that King Krule and his new LP, 6 Feet Beneath the Moon, is one of the best of 2013. Our roaming photo editor, Brock Fetch, the author of our almost monthly Brock Life column in the magazine, was lucky enough to document the British musicians set in the backyard of ALIFE's Lower East Side location, and today we have a video of King Krule performing "Rock Bottom."
Graffiti // Sunday, September 29, 2013
There are very few graffiti writers who can’t recite at least one line from the influential ‘80s graffiti documentary film, Style Wars. You couldn’t have had a more eclectic group of characters or written better lines. Being a super fan, Curve drew up 9 of the films stars and put them on a t-shirt. From top left to bottom right they are Seen, Case2, Cap, Skeme, Min, Trap, Iz The Wiz, Dez, and Dondi.

Created jointly with stylist Stella Gosteva and make-up artist Marina Keri, Madame Peripettie's (Sylwana Zybura) "Dream Sequence" photography series seeks to 'illuminate the dreamy phantasmagorias to which we disappear to in the night, creating charaters that 'radiate a sense of ever-lasting awe and reverence.'"

We love these large-scale charcoal illustrations by Rotterdam, Netherlands-based artist Anouk Griffioen. A connection with fashion can be seen in her work through the clothing and the models' faces and bodies. This influence saw a turning point when she collaborated with fashion photographer Anne Marieke van Drimmelen. Ever since Anouk has seen fashion play a more visible role in her art.

In our October issue, out now on newsstands, we documented our recent trip to the Filson Factory in Seattle, where the great team took us around the factory floor and showed us how their heritage and artisan bags are constructed. We also got some sneak peeks into their new Seattle Life collection, some classic apparel and Filson advertising, and of course, some of the most beautifully made luggage and day bags being created today. Or 100 years ago.
