French Vogue Article

Forget passé labels like Notify or True Religion (yawn), cult denim label SUPERFINE is where it's at. Not only has it been flying out of our store, but it's gaining hype in the major fashion press too with coverage in the July '06 issues of French VOGUE, Japanese VOGUE and Australian VOGUE. Personally we like the French VOGUE coverage (above, click to enlarge).


Mad Barbarians Dunny 8"

707 is the only official Indonesian retailer for KIDROBOT and we've just received a new shipment of goodies... New stocks of toys in-store now include;

The popular 'do-it-yourself' MUNNY's, which come with a random assortment of accessories.

SMORKIN' MONGERS and huge SMORKIN' LABBITS (glow-in-the-dark) from KOZIK. ICE-BOTS from reknowned graf artist DALEK complete with refrigerator packaging.

Also coming very soon... a new and super-rare 8" DUNNY by Japanese design duo MAD BARBARIANS (see top photo, blind boxed, 1/10 is rare gold edition).For more info on these check the store or send us an email (

This stunning portrait of Austrian society lady Adele Bloch-Bauer in gold leaf and oil by Gustav Klimt has been sold for a new record price of US$135 million. This beats the $104.1 million paid for Pablo Picasso's 1905 "Boy With a Pipe (The Young Apprentice)" at a Sotheby's auction in 2004.

The buyer was billionaire cosmetics magnate Ronald S. Lauder, who when asked how long it took him to decide to buy the painting replied "Thirty seconds."


The hype continues... After winning the CFDA/Vogue award (and 200,00 bucks!), TROVATA is on the cover of this month's NYLON and has just been featured on HYPEBEAST and HONEYEE. Jakarta 'hipsters' have already been depleting our stocks, but we still have a few T's and polos left. 707 is the exclusive supplier of TROVATA in Indonesia. Worldwide, TROVATA is available at Fred Segal, Barney's and other fine retailers.

UPDATE: TROVATA wins the PERRY ELLIS fashion award. It is now the only men's brand to win all three major 'new designer' awards; Ecco Domani, CFDA/Vogue, and Perry Ellis. Previous winners of the Perry Ellis award include Marc Jacobs...

UPDATE 2 : The green polo from the cover of NYLON is SOLD OUT! Too slow...

+Teamgeist "Berlin"

The ADIDAS "+Teamgeist Berlin" (the Goldenball) is the special edition match ball designed for the final match of the World Cup. This will be the ONE & ONLY match that this ball will be used in. The special match ball design is similar to the regular adidas +Teamgeist used in all earlier matches, but executed in gold, like the trophy, with black and white details. The name "+Teamgeist Berlin", translates to "team spirit", suffixed with the name of the German capital where the final will be played on July 9th.

Replicas of this special ball will be released at limited stores in limited quantities after the final.

The regular '+Teamgeist' ball is shown below and we're sure Heidi is explaining how it's supposedly the most advanced football ever produced, using only 14 panels instead of the normal 26 or 32 to give a much smoother surface and more spherical shape.
