Oliver Peoples Japan continues to release an impressive selection of frames season after season and this summer’s styles are no exception. From colorful, mirror lensed titanium aviators to optical styles with intricate acetates and ornate metal detailing, the Japanese lineup definitely outshines its stateside collection in our opinion.

Produced by Japan-based S.H. Figuarts, these 6-inch action figures of Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo were created under the direct supervision of the duo themselves.
The action figures wear the attire from the chart-toppers’ latest album, Random Access Memories, and are crafted with meticulous attention to detail with seven sets of left/right interchangeable hand parts for recreation of dynamic posing.
The action figures go on sale Dec. 27 in the United States for $45.
Even though Jay-Z began giving away a million copies of his new album Magna Carta Holy Grail on July 4, the set is still bound for a big week once it goes on sale July 9. Industry sources suggest it might sell 350,000 – 400,000 by the end of the tracking week on Sunday, July 14.
Magna Carta‘s first-week sales forecast is based partly on how well the title is performing with pre-orders through digital retailers. It became available to pre-order via iTunes on July 4.
In turn, the album is seemingly a lock for No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart next week. It would mark Jay-Z’s 13th chart-topper, extending his record as the solo artist with the most No. 1 albums in history. (Only the Beatles, with 19 No. 1s, have more leaders.)
Magna Carta‘s retail release date comes five days after it became available for free to some Samsung photo and tablet users.
Jay-Z’s last solo studio album, 2009′s The Blueprint 3, opened at No. 1 with 476,000 sold in its first week, according to Nielsen SoundScan. He returned to the top slot in 2011 with the collaborative album Watch the Throne (with Kanye West). It started at No. 1 with 436,000.
