Laura Marling Comments | Mar 31 2008

Laura Marling

I first heard of Laura Marling in her collaboration with the Mystery Jets song Young Love. She is a folk-pop singer-songwriter from Reading, Berkshire, England and has a wonderful voice preventing me from listening to anything else.

Vice Magazine Glows With BMW Comments | Mar 26 2008


The April issue of the beloved culture magazine Vice has done an interesting advertising campaign with BMW Canada. The campaign is for the BMW 1 Series and this campaign mimics the strategy of the 1 series… “short, intense experiences” . In the light the cover featuring Sasha Grey looks like a regular cover, but when the lights go out… a car can be seen glowing.

At first you wouldn’t really think BMW would want to share the cover with a porn star, but they are and its not deterring me from buying a BMW. It also may not be expected that targeting readers of Vice is a wise choice because they don’t seem to be their target demographic, but they create buzz and in a few years will be the ones buying  the BMWs.

OBEY Barack Obama Comments | Mar 26 2008

I’ve seen Shepard Fairey’s Obama posters floating around the internet these days and its great that he is backing what he believes in. I just came across this Thank You letter from Obama to Shepard for the posters he has been creating in support for the next election. Shepard’s support led to the prints being sold on Obama’s campaign’s site.

Thank You OBEY

Barack Obama Obey

If you are interested in puchasing a print it is possible to do so at the Barack Obama Store Original post is can be found at


Luxury Cocaine Logos Comments | Mar 24 2008


The Swiss artist Comenius Roethlisberger just finished the exhibit at Colette Paris which consisted of high fashion logos written with Cocaine. I felt this sparked thought in respects to where fashion and “luxury” brands reside in our society. A section of the show will be displayed at Scope NYC from March 26 - 30 so if you are in the area check it.

Further information found at NY Magazine and Street Boners and TV Carnage.

For those not in the know SBTVC was started by Gavin McInnes who started Vice Magazine with two other guys back in 1994 and recently split to do his own stuff. The comments on SBTVC are priceless, just read them, I know you want to.


The Reinvention of Pants Comments | Mar 24 2008

Ok well the last few months I have started to see more and more labels releasing or producing what I like to called “drop crotched pants”. I believe they are refreshing, innovative and personally I can’t wait to get a pair from … somewhere. Nonetheless I just can’t stop talking about them and trying to figure out am I the only one who feels they are the next big things in the evolution pants?

Corpus Denim available at Reborn Montreal


Henrik Vibskov available at Oak New York


Material Boy available at Seven New York



There was also a pair of lowered crotch shorts available at Oak New York by the label Telfar which was probably my favorite out of them all however they are sold out now and the image is no longer available. I’ve heard of all of the mentioned labels prior to the outburst of “drop crotch” pants and shorts and had the pleasure to shop at Seven New York, a great experience and would recommend it to anyone in and around SoHo.Is the unnoticed trend going to stay? Is it a dumb fad? I say no but it very well could just stay in progressive fashion forward labels. Thoughts?


Terry Richardson Is Everywhere Comments | Mar 12 2008

If you are alive right now you would have seen Terry Richardson’s photography. Whether you’ve known it or not its everywhere.

Terry Richardson

Terry Richardson is an international celebrity as well as one of the most prolific and compelling photographers of his generation. Known for his uncanny ability to cut to the raw essence of whomever appears before his lens, Mr. Richardson’s vision is at once humorous, tragic, often beautiful, and always provocative.

Born in New York City and raised in Hollywood, Terry began photographing his environment while attending Hollywood High School and playing in a punk rock band. And he hasn’t stopped shooting since. Mr. Richardson has lensed campaigns for such clients as Gucci, Sisley, Miu Miu, Levi’s, Eres, Chloe, APC, Carolina Herrera, Nike, and Kenneth Cole. Terry’s editorial work has appeared in magazines such as Vogue, French Vogue, British Vogue, Japanese Vogue, I-D, Dazed and Confused, GQ, Harper’s Bazaar, W, and Purple, as well as a host of worldwide
publications too numerous to mention.
Mr. Richardson is also a favorite among famous actors and musicians. His impressive list of subjects includes Daniel Day Lewis, Faye Dunaway, Leonardo DiCaprio, Vincent Gallo, Tom Ford, Marc Jacobs, Sharon Stone, Mickey Rourke, Jay Z, 50 Cent, Kanye West, Mena Suvari, Johnny Knoxville, Nicolas Cage, Dennis Hopper, Maggie Gylenhall, Karl Lagerfeld, Pharell Williams, Chloe Sevigny, and many others.

Terry has been the subject of numerous group shows as well as one man shows at such esteemed galleries as The Alleged Gallery in New York City, The Shine Gallery in London, Gallery Emanuel Perriton in Paris, The Parco Gallery in Japan, and most recently, Deitch Projects also in New York City.

Many books have also been published throughout the span of Terry’s career. His first book, entitled Hysteric Glamour, was published in 1998; this was followed by Son of Bob in 1999, Feared by Men Desired by Women in 2000, Too Much in 2001, and 2004 saw the publishing of both Terryworld and Kibosh.

Terry has recently made the transition from still photography to film as well, helming music videos for Primal Scream, Death in Vegas, and Whirlwind Heat in addition to television commercials for Tommy Hilfiger and the internet company Wanadoo. His feature film debut “Son of a Bitch,” is currently in development and is sure to captivate audiences with its stark portrayal of a father and son’s struggle with love and hate.

Whatever the medium, Terry Richardson continues to prove that he is a true American Original.


The following images are a mixture of Terry’s work. There are the photos that you will recognize and there’s the photos that are over the top controversial. Are they even photography/fine art or porn… maybe? I am going with fine art. I will not be posting such photo but they can be found by searching Google or by clicking here –> MORE TERRY RICHARDSON

Enjoy the following photos…

Hedi Slimane Comments | Mar 12 2008

Hedi Slimane

I know this interview with Hedi Slimane is old but I recently found it on. It gaves some basic insight into such a respected designer who left Dior in 2007. Being known for furniture design, fragrances, store design, and photography, Slimane is noted for the slim silhouette of his menswear. Anyhow here’s some more insight quoted by Kanye West ”Hedi Slimane is not even a real person. I’m saying that in the most positive way. Saying that he’s not even a human being. Hedi Slimane is truly a god. Bow in the presence of greatness.

Hedi also has a photo diary located here ->

The photos are nothing less than captivating so instead of me trying to explain their meaning, or what makes the composition work just go look and form your own opinion.
