Here you get a first look at their collaboration with San Francisco brand BlackScale. They worked on a black perforated patent leather high top with side zipper. So far no release date has been announced, but we will definitely keep you posted.
The other day we reported already about BlakRoc, the collaboration between The Black Keys and some of the biggest names in hip hop, including Mos Def, Q-Tip, RZA, Raekwon, Pharoahe Monch, Jim Jones, NOE, Nicole Wray and Billy Danze. Here we give you a look at the new BlakRoc Chevy Camaro.
“Carl Black Chevrolet will be the world wide exclusive outlet to offer the official BlakRoc Chevy Camaro.
The 2010 Chevy Camaro speaks for itself with its sculptured body and passionate engineering that left nothing to be desired. Carl Black has simply added the sizzle to match the passion and creativity of the BlakRoc project.
From the ground up, the BlakRoc Camaro has been equipped with sleek, stylish accents that tie in with the BlakRoc brand. Starting with the BR logo inlayed front and center.
Blacking it out turns up the heat. The windows are tinted, the taillights are smoked, and even the Chevy bow tie goes dark to complete the look. The Black on Black classic combination subtly comes to life with flat black racing stripes front to back with the BlakRoc logo inlayed in metallic on the hood and rear spoiler".

Alpine construction, with its extreme conditions, remains a challenge in engineering, as shown by the recent example of the Monte Rosa lodge.
The Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) took over the architectural and technical concept, creating a crystalline body with remote-controlled energy management from a computer at the ETH in Zurich. The energy needed for heating water and air come from solar collectors. The sewage is micro filtered on a bacterial basis and the resulting greywater is reused for flushing and cleaning purposes.
The silvery, shining aluminium cladding and the photovoltaic structure on the southern facade conceal the wooden construction beneath.

[CELEB NEWS] Tiger Woods Facial Injuries Reportedly Caused By His Wife Not Car Wreck. Alleged Affair By Tiger Started Fight.
BAFFLED police are yet to interview Tiger Woods over a bizarre car crash just outside his Florida mansion that left the world's greatest golfer unconscious and sparked claims it was caused by a domestic spat over allegations he was having an affair.
The golfing great's wife, Erin Nordegren, said she rescued her husband from the wreckage using a golf club to smash the car window, but other reports emerging out of the US claimed she had used the club on her husband during their late-night row.
The fight that apparently led to the crash was reportedly sparked by tabloid reports Woods cheated on his wife with a nightclub hostess in Melbourne during the recent Australian Masters.
Woods, 33, suffered facial lacerations not in the accident but in the earlier fracas with his angry wife, according to celebrity website TMZ.

Eminem wants to be a judge on the popular British show The X Factor and has even made his wish known to Simon Cowell.
The rapper believes the current panel of judges - Cheryl Cole, Dannii Minogue and Louis Walsh - is not experienced enough.
"No disrespect to the current judges but you need people who are global, platinum-selling stars. You need to prepare contestants for what it''s really like out there, and what sort of pressure you are going to be under," the Sun quoted Eminem, as saying.
The 37-year-old star said he would "guarantee" finding a hitmaker if he and his producer friend Dr. Dre were given a guest slot in the talent hunt show.
Eminem, real name Marshall Mathers III, said: "So much average talent comes out of these reality shows, it''s time to give people a chance who deserve it.
"A hip-hop star will never win a show like The X Factor without somebody like me on the panel.
"There are a lot of very talented hip-hop stars who would kill for a break in Britain but the judges aren''t qualified in hip-hop.
"I keep my eye on the urban scene in Britain and there is a lot of talent out there. It needs somebody in power to open a door for them."
"I am not sure I would have the time to do it full-time, but I would come and be a guest judge...Simon tells it like it is and I am down with that. If somebody ain''t good enough they ain''t good enough," he added.
Susan Boyle had ANOTHER breakdown while having lunch at the Rock Centre cafe in NYC's Rockefeller Centre on Monday.
Immediately after her performance on the Today show, she was presented with a quilt made by hundreds of people from 28 countries including the UK, US, Australia, Mexico, Japan and Antarctica - and then she lost it!
SuBo began to become withdrawn, shake and inevitably suck her thumb. The emotion became so much that she started to sob and put her head on the table, yet the tantrum didn't last long. Once she realized that hundreds of fans and cameras were watching, she got out of her chair and began to do a lively dance.
According to her spokesman, "'She was just overjoyed and extremely touched with the reception she had had from everyone in America."
Although we do not know whether the incident was alcohol induced, David Hasselhoff was found passed out at his home in Encino on Friday.
"Paramedics were called to the (address omitted) in Encino for medical aid," Los Angeles City Fire Department spokesman Erik Scott. "Paramedics arrived at approximately 11:51 am and later transported the patient a nearby hospital."
