German collaborative street art sensation Herakut (interviewed) opened their show “No Placebos” last night at Red Flagg in New York.

An artist duo that we have been following for a long time now, Kozyndan (Kozy & Dan) collaborated with PUMA on a clothing and shoe line a while back. Unfortunately, this turned out to be a Europe-only release and fans in the States never got a chance to snatch some of these items up…  until now. Here is a shot of a window display at the PUMA store on the 3rd St. Promenade in Santa Monica. It appears that other stores will be carrying the line as […]
