Conceived by Sussex-based boat designer John Shuttleworth, the Adastra Superyacht is a stunning $15 million vessel measuring 139.5 feet long and weighing 52 tons. It has a top speed of 22.5 knots can travel 4,000 nautical miles without refueling. Fuel efficiency is helped by a lightweight hull, made of glass and Kevlar, as well as an interior appointed with similarly lightweight oak cabinetry with honeycomb panels. Billed as the second largest of its kind, the trimaran took four years to build and features an integrated ship monitoring system, allowing it to be be controlled by an iPad 50 meters away. Commissioned by Hong Kong-based shipping magnate Anto Marden, the luxury yacht can house up to nine guests and six crew members. Creature comforts include a full-width master cabin and two guest cabins — all appointed with luxury bathrooms — as well as a sauna, whirlpool and fully functional kitchen. Finally, a spacious deck saloon offers panoramic views. Check out more looks in the gallery below.

June 1st is right around the corner and that means The Roots’ sixth annual picnic is about to get underway (get your tickets here). And to help showcase the talent that will be performing, okayplayer called upon Cosmo Baker to put together a sweet mix of music featuring the likes of The Roots (of course), Macklmore & Ryan Lewis, Gaslamp Killer, Solange, araabMUZIK, Hit-Boy, Trinidad Jame$ and more. Stream/download below.
At the 11th Hour it seemed like a good idea to write some sort of introduction to this mix and I gave it some thought as to what I was going to touch upon, but understand this is harder than it may seem. It’s difficult enough to capture everything that this collection of artists is about in the futile medium that’s one single mixtape. In the same regard, much like their entire career it’s almost impossible to pin down what The Roots, and Okayplayer are all about with just words. And that right there just may be the point.
I could take it back to 1992 or 93 when I first met these two dudes Ahmir and Tariq and this could be the story of “Philly dudes done well” or I could talk about the parallels of all or our respective career arcs and all that jazz. Or I could talk about how just some local musicans and DJs from South and West Philly have transformed into global music and cultural ambassadors.
But to me it comes down to one thing – love. The love that one has that makes one do what they do. It’s not for the money of the fame, but for the love of music that is the single reason why we’re in this game. That’s the greatest commonality that we all share, and one of the reasons why Okayplayer is what it is today in 2013. Perhaps it’s something in our mutual Philly history, and its collective cultural fiber; from being in that one time at that one place. I don’t know, but I do know one thing: I grew up with all this, and so when I was asked to contribute this mix, it was more than an honor. It felt like I was coming back home. – Cosmo Baker

Both A.P.C. and EASTPAK are legendary in their own right. A.P.C. is deeply entrenched in the bloodline of French apparel, while American brand EASTPAK has carried the torch for sturdy, durable bags since its inception in 1960. The two brands have come together in their first-ever collaborations, featuring a stylish three-piece range that simultaneously speaks to both brands’ commitment to quality. Included here is the ‘Classic’ backpack, a tasteful Black piece adorned with cream details, as well as the ‘Big’ backpack, offered here in a tasteful camouflage pattern. Rounding out the capsule collection is a golf bag, a utility focused pack that will undoubtedly stand out on the green. Enjoy photos of the capsule above and look for the collection at A.P.C. boutiques later this year.
Club 75 joins forces with French fashion label Brooklyn We Go Hard, or BWGH, for this very special limited edition crewneck sweatshirt. Using BWGH’s half cotton, half wool crewneck as a base, Club 75 adds its Parisian motto “Ici c’est Club 75” to the front of the heather grey sweater. Enhanced by a black velvet yoke with red stitching at each elbow, you can purchase one of the 75 sweaters produced for approximately $147 USD from colette.
I really love all of these tracks Jhene Aiko has done with No I.D. since she signed with Def Jam Records. The legendary producer molds his instrumentals to fit perfectly around Jhene’s voice and she never fails to deliver a passionate record. Listen below.
Jordan Brand’s full plans for July 2013 are being laid out in front of us. One of the first things that sticks out about the group is the abundance of “true blue” utilizing styles, despite the Air Jordan III of the same name being, obviously, nowhere to be found. One of the other first things that sticks out is the overall dearth of retro styles-there are just a couple of Air Jordan 1s being reported at this time and that’s it. Continue reading to see the entirety of the Jordan Brand July 2013 stuff, tell us which model you’d most like to get your feet into, and keep in mind that the whole set is right around the corner.
Less than a year since the Rugby label’s closure, Ralph Lauren recently started to renewed some of the old store locations into flagships for its Denim & Supply by Ralph Lauren line. Among the first of these stores here in the U.S. is one at 342 Newbury Street in Boston, which opened last month, and the 4,000-square-foot storefront at New York City’s 99 University Place. To mimic the collection’s general design theme, Rugby’s once posh-preppy interior of tartan carpeting and mahogany wall panels gave way to rustic hardware and weathered paint job, much like a general store/trading post out in the Old West. Filled with exposed brick walls, worsted leather furnishings, and worn wooden floors, the store’s interior as well as the clothing’s designs, all highlight a modern Bohemian sensibility.
Filled with complete collections for men, women, kids, and accessories, both Denim & Supply by Ralph Lauren flagship stores in New York and Boston will be open throughout this Memorial’s Day Weekend.
