Mija has teamed up with early 2000s cult footwear brand, Heelys, for a limited edition shoe collab, available now via her Made By Mija store. The collab was fully designed by Mija as a hybrid style of old school hi-top skate shoes and early 2000s underground rave culture. She cites her early high school years of throwing and attending underground raves in Phoenix, AZ as the primary influence for this design.
Following an organic exchange on Twitter between Heelys & Mija in October of 2016, Mija offered to design a new run of shoes at no design cost to the company. After a year of tweaks and fabrication, the shoes are now available to the public. Mija launched her own DIY and self-designed clothing company, Made By Mija, in September of 2016, releasing original designs and cut & sew patterns. This footwear collab marks her first foray into footwear.

Kidrobot Releases Andy Warhol Polaroid Series 2
Kidrobot creates collection of iconic art pieces from Andy Warhol
Kidrobot, the world’s premiere designer and online retailer of limited edition art toys and apparel, just announced the release of an all-new, collection based on iconic art pieces from the preeminent visual artist of the 20th century, Andy Warhol – Andy Warhol Polaroid Series 2, Andy Warhol 20″ Camo Dunny Plush and Andy Warhol Masterpiece Campbell’s Soup Can 8″ Dunny.
Andy Warhol Polaroid Series 2
“A picture means I know where I was every minute. That’s why I take pictures. It’s a visual diary.” In conjunction with The Andy Warhol Foundation, Kidrobot brings you this intimate look in to Andy Warhol’s life with the Andy Warhol Polaroid Series 2. Using his camera much like we use Instagram today, Andy Warhol created a diary of his life through the lens of a Polaroid camera. This collection of 11 photographs takes a closer look at objects of Warhol’s curiosity and contains an iconic Andy Warhol quote on the back. These 11 Polaroid reproductions are a great collectible for the Warhol enthusiast and create a timeless visual diary of the life and art of Andy Warhol.
Andy Warhol 20″ Camo Dunny Plush
Based on the question “What can I do that would be abstract but not really abstract,” he posed to his studio assistants this plush Dunny comes in an all-over camo print. Unlike military motifs, Warhol’s Camouflage prints reflect bright and inorganic colors that would not be suitable for any landscape. Standing 20” tall and constructed with super soft plush, this Andy Warhol plush Dunny will add new depth to any Warhol collection.
Andy Warhol Campbell’s Soup Can 8″ Masterpiece Dunny
Andy Warhol and Kidrobot meet to present a limited-edition Andy Warhol Masterpiece 8” Dunny series. Motivated by a friend’s suggestion to paint “something you see every day and something that everybody would recognize. Something like a can of Campbell’s soup” the third Dunny in the series is a homage to Andy Warhol’s most iconic piece. The Andy Warhol Campbell’s Soup Can 8″ Masterpiece Dunny comes packaged in a black window box with a magnetic closable flap. Limited and numbered to 500 pieces worldwide this is a must have piece for any Andy Warhol collector.
Relief Fund for Hurricane Harvey, Organized by Houston’s Trae the Truth
Trae the Truth Launches “We Are One!
Houston-based rapper, activist, philanthropist, and entrepreneur, Trae Tha Truth, has joined rescue missions for Hurricane Harvey and has launched a Go Fund Me titled “We Are One! Hurricane Harvey Relief” to raise money through his 501 (C)3 foundation Angel By Nature. His mission is to raise $250,000 buy supplies needed to aid underserved families and senior citizens.
Recognized for his outstanding philanthropic endeavors throughout the years, Trae the Truth was honored by being given his own day by the mayor of Houston in 2008, entitled, Trae Day. For over 10 years, Trae has produced numerous food drives, back-to-school drives, and his annual free block party called Trae Day, has been widely praised for being a great source of badly needed resources, useful information, and family-friendly fun for the community. Since Hurricane Harvey touched down in Houston, Trae has been in the field, joining and organizing rescue missions, delivering supplies, and providing a sense of comfort. His efforts, including going out in boats to retrieve residents who were stranded in their homes, including Orlando Magic forward Jonathan Simmons, have landed him on the nationally syndicated CNN and Good Morning America’s Hometown Heroes segment.
Trae Tha Truth is calling for the support of everyone to help him continue his efforts. In addition to the monetary donations, clothing donations are also being accepted. Donate to Trae’s Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund here.
