Dior Homme have released a Flash video presentation of their Fall/Winter 2009/10 Runway Collection, Angles

With Dior Homme recently becoming rather popular (hype?) with the street wear collective, I’m sure there will be something to interest everyone in this show.

Containing the usual Black, White and Greys we come to expect from Dior Homme, the styling of this season is still classic and clean but this time some very nice Punk and ’80s influences clearly shine through.

Also check out the great tune from Malcolm McLaren accompanying the show!

Video is HERE

BBC Stars in Space Jumpsuit & Canvas Sneakers

leave a comment »

BBC has definitely shown us time and time again that they are not one to shy away from trying something new. From tuxedos and bow ties to metallic gold backpacks and space helmet ski masks, it’s pretty hard to surprise us at this point.
Well just when you thought it was over, BBC has just released a fully stars in space covered jumpsuit.

Actually looks kinda cool but not sure how many of these bad boys will actually sell for the $875 price tag at BBC/ Icea Cream flagships.

These canvas sneakers are way more practical but just as outrageously priced at nearly $300 from Colette.

Unrivaled s/s 2009

leave a comment »

Another really nicely put together line out of Japan, Unrivaled, has just released images from their upcoming Spring/Summer 2009 collection.

It’s hard to stand out much with all of the amazing clothing that comes out of Japan these days, but the patchwork and little bit of flair that each cut & sewn piece is done very well.

More pics here, and available to buy soon on hanon.

I randomly discovered waste(twice) a few years ago whilst wondering the streets of Shibuya.

Sold via their Jam stores primarily, waste(twice) describes its self as “A genuine overalls and comfortable clothing” company. They manage to combine a retro European feel with modern street casual trends that blends beautifully.

Waste(twice) was founded in 2002 by designers Motoki Kawanabe and Shinsuke Kojima and is based in Tokyo, with Jam stores in Tokyo and Fukuoka. Their clothing is also available via several other officail retailers around Japan.

For their Spring/Summer lookbook, they have continued the “retro” look with a nice collection of shirts, pants, shoes and other leather goods.

Also this season sees a collaboration with Mt Rainier Design Works and the Voyage label side of waste(twice) to bring us some really nice outdoor clothing.

Adventures in College: Hookah Nights

with one comment

There’s a new hookah bar on our campus that we started visiting pretty regularly this year. We hit it up last weekend with a bunch of requests and they basically accommodated every single one of them and let us have the best night this semester.

So the 1st request was to bring in a few bottles of wine and number 2 was to let us iPod DJ for the night. They had no problem with either, so it was Theophilus London, Red Wine, and Hookah on some nice comfy couches.
Then the owner came over and gave us a 2nd hookah on the house. Yes, it was that kinda night.

Once we got home the pictures got more and more obscure. Like this one of some stickers and 3D glasses. Oh and then my slippers.

“This Guy”

Thanks to the people at Hollywood Hookah on Marshall St., Cannonball Wine, Jane, Marina, Charissa, Theophilus London and everyone else who made the night great.

Someone owes me some Makers Mark by the way. You all downed that!
