His work ranges from original concept computers and arcade gaming gemstones in solid wood and precious metals to modular lamps made from beeswax. He will present his wide range of innovative prototypes and new products in his first American exhibition at Austere in Los Angeles from November 20-28, 2014.
It so happens that Stone Island and their Italian supertechnicians/wizards (streghe?), who devote their days to things like making dyes (read: creating colors no one has ever seen before) and revolutionizing outerwear, have teamed up with NYC streetwear titan Supreme. The collaboration for A/W 2014 consists of the Raso Gommato Cover Nero Jacket (shh...shh...there's a removable eye mask on the stowaway hood), a group of fleeces, and a Supreme camp cap. The collection drops October 2, both in stores and online.

Based in Santa Cruz, O'Neill has been making wetsuits and surf gear since the 1950s, while Pendelton has been producing woolen textiles in Oregon since 1863. It makes sense, then, that these two companies whose business is keeping people warm have teamed up on a limited capsule collection for Fall 2014.
