yo bear & ho babe

Yo! Lots of Be@rbricks out there are designed and produced by hip street wear fashion brands such as Stussy, SSUR, BAPE, Mastermind, and Nike.

Among these is the Series 13 Secret STPL Be@rbrick (right) from Staple Design, a graphic design firm and fashion brand founded by New Yorker Jeff Ng.

Ng and his team have designed for other brands such as Nike, Louis Vuitton/Moet Hennessy, Timberland, Sony Playstation, Puma, Burton Snowboards, Uniqlo and more.

To promote Staples' 10th anniversary, Jeff Ng teamed up with Japanese photographer Yonehara to creates a series of photos starring Japanese porn star Maria Ozawa wearing the 10th Anniversary t-shirt (left).

The X logo (10 years) on Maria's tee is the same one that's on the STPL Be@rbrick. Now doesn't that just give a whole new meaning to these cute little toys? :-)
