Spanish Endurance Athlete, Kílian Jornet, Summits Mount Everest in "Fastest Known Time"

Tuesday May 23rd, 2017 02:25:28 PM Hypebeast

Renowned Spanish endurance athlete, Kílian Jornet Burgada, scaled the traditional north, or Tibetian side of Mount Everest with no oxygen aid or fixed ropes in what is being claimed as the "fastest known time (FKT)" of 26 hours. The 29-year-old, who already holds the record for the FKTs ascending and descending Matterhorn, Mont Blanc and Denali, completed his superhuman journey on Monday and reported every step of the way on the website, blog.summitsofmylife.com. Jornet began his ascent at a basecamp (5,100m) on May 20, 10 p.m. local time, and although he experienced some stomach discomfort along the way, he reached the summit (8,484m) at midnight, May 22. Due to stomach problems Jornet didn’t complete the descent to the Everest Base Camp and is currently recovering at the Advanced Base Camp (6,400 m) "Up to 7,700m I felt really good and was making progress as planned but then I started to feel unwell, probably from stomach virus. From then on I made slow progress and had to keep stopping to recover. I finally reached the summit at midnight," Jornet said. Climbing the northern route of Everest takes days for the most experienced climbers, even with the aid of oxygen and ropes. Kílian's time isn't being disputed just yet, however many people have claimed faster times over the years. Nevertheless, it's been reported that less than 200 climbers have ever reached the summit without oxygen aid or ropes, and Jornet did it in nearly a full day. Kudos. [EXPEDITION UPDATE] Kilian Jornet reached the summit of Everest at midnight of 21st to 22nd May (local time) in a single climb without the help of oxygen or fixed ropes. He reached the summit via the north face of the world’s highest mountain (8,848m) following the traditional route. Thank you @sebmontazstudio for all your work!

Tuesday May 23rd, 2017 02:17:21 PM Hypebeast

G-Eazy and 9th Wonder have teamed up for a boom bap banger titled "Maximum." The track was released via G-Eazy's Soundcloud and serves as a loose tune he says he did "just for fun." While fans may wonder what the connection between the Bay area rapper and the beatsmith from North Carolina is, 9th Wonder took to Instagram to talk about the first time the pair met: When I met G-Eazy for the first time, this is the record he told me he heard many years ago a a youngin' that hipped him to my sound. "That was my shit bro...", he said. This was the record that I produced in the summer of 2003, right before I produced "Threat" for Jay-Z on the Black Album later that year. The rest...is the future. Never let the boxes the industry puts us in interfere with the fact that we all know, and love the real. G-Eazy is coming off the release of his joint EP Step Brothers with DJ Carnage. However, he also assured fans via Twitter that his solo album is "coming soon."

Browns Launches "Just a T-Shirt" Capsule Collection

Tuesday May 23rd, 2017 02:10:43 PM Hypebeast

Seminal London boutique Browns has launched a new capsule collection called "Just a T-Shirt." The retailer has teamed up with a selection of artists and designers, including Perks and Mini's Misha Hollenbach, Canadian artist Brad Phillips, Come Tees founder Sonya Sombreuil, London-based Oliver Payne (who's worked with the likes of Palace and Cav Empt in the past), Ken Kegami and new London brand Languages. The collection is available via BrownsFashion's web store now, with all T-shirts retailing at £45 GBP (approximately $58 USD). We also spoke with Lee Goldup, Browns' menswear buyer, about the collection and how it came around. How did you go about choosing the people you worked with? For the launch of "Just a t-shirt" we’ve worked with five international artists whose work we really admire.  The process of narrowing down these artists – whose work spans a variety of mediums – was quite a challenge, but we feel that these five artists complement each other really well.  To us, it was all in the mix; we’ve taken the opportunity to shine a light on some lesser known artists as well more established names. All graphics are exclusive to Browns, including the three from P.A.M which Misha Hollenbach has been kind enough to let us reissue. We are huge fans of his original work so we’re thrilled to have him form part of our launch collection. In addition to "Just a T-Shirt" we’re also launching Languages this week  – a new London based brand exclusive to Browns.  Their first release consists of six brilliant tees.  We’re looking forward to working with the team as the brand develops. Why did you make a T-shirt collection? We curated this project for one simple reason; we love graphic tees and what they represent. The simple T-shirt is a non-seasonal, genderless garment, which can be worn with just about anything. They are the pieces we all reach for day in, day out. They also make the perfect canvas -- whether it’s a slogan, logo, global statement, photograph or band name, people like to wear art as a way of expressing themselves. Our customers will definitely find something that speaks to them within this first drop. With the barrier to entry relatively low, the not-so-humble T-shirt can make its way into the wardrobes of such a wide variety of people, which we’re very excited to see. Is this an ongoing thing? "Just a T-Shirt" will be an ongoing project. We’re already developing the second iteration of the capsule, which will feature five different artists.
