On Abbot Kenney with Steve Alan Comments | Aug 16 2008

Steve Alan LA

SteveAlan_shirt

I have been meaning to blog about the designer Steve Alan but have never really got around to it. While strolling around Venice we headed down Abbot Kenney in Venice Beach we came across Steve Alan store. Steve Alan’s store resembled the A.P.C. flagship store in SoHo NYC. It had a rustic cabin coziness. The colors were natural and earthly with unfinished hardwood all while keeping a slight influence of a “beach house”.

Steve Alan is located:
1601 Abbot Kinney Blvd.
Venice, CA 90291
310-452-3413

One of the standout aspect of Steve Alan’s designs are the wonderful tailoring and unique but simplistic choice of textiles

The store not only carried Steve Alan Collection but A.P.C., Wings + Horns and others were available.

Living the dream in Beverly Hills Comments | Aug 16 2008

Sienna Miller Robertson

Yesterday we were strolling down Robertson the other day shopping and living the dream in LA and sure enough the paparazzi were in full force chasing peeps and taking photos of the famous doing everyday things when they all started booking it to the gas station taking super photos. Sure enough it was Sienna Miller filling up her car. I found photos of the event on z17online.com so check them. On Robertson we checked Kitson, WeSc among others.

Keep up to date here with more photos of LA and my super adventures involving Siggraph, LA, Beverly Hilly, Santa Monica, NewPort beach and everything else fun.

V is for Van She Comments | Aug 11 2008

Van She

On August number 9 the debut full length from Van She is being released. If you loved The Teenagers Reality Check, I would defiantly recommend checking out Van She’s album V.

The similarities lie with the 80’s popish synths and drums.Van She hail from Sydney Australia and have been making amazing tracks since ‘05. Listening to their album I can hear influences from Nirvana, U2 and Perl Jam. For being a Psychedelic / Shoegaze / Techno (according to their myspace page) band its great hearing classic influences twisted into a more modern shape. Accordingly Modular describes Van She as a “new band from Sydney fresh on ideas, fresher than Flavor Flav, fresh like coriander, fresher than the Fresh Prince.” - Amazing.

Along with their band two members also do remixes of your fab. fav. groups and producers under the name Van She Technologic… here is some songs off their new album V.

Strangers

Van She - Sunbeams

Van She - Virgin Suicide

Beautiful Losers Comments | Aug 07 2008

Beautiful Losers

Beautiful Losers celebrates the spirit behind one of the most influential cultural movements of a generation. In the early 1990’s a loose-knit group of like minded outsiders found common ground at a little NYC storefront gallery. Rooted in the DIY (do-it-yourself) subcultures of skateboarding, surf, punk, hip hop & graffiti, they made art that reflected the lifestyles they led. Developing their craft with almost no influence from the “establishment” art world, this group, and the subcultures they sprang from, have now become a movement that has been transforming pop culture. Starring a selection of artists who are considered leaders within this culture, Beautiful Losers focuses on the telling of personal stories…speaking to themes of what happens when the outside becomes “in” as it explores the creative ethos connecting these artists and today’s youth.

Beautiful Losers was Directed Aaron Rose and Co-Directed by Joshua Leonard. The film features the artists Thomas Campbell, Cheryl Dunn, Shepard Fairey, Harmony Korine, Geoff McFetridge, Barry McGee, Mike Mills, Steven “Espo” Powers, Aaron Rose, Ed Templeton and Deanna Templeton.

Komakino Store - Vancouver CA. Comments | Aug 06 2008

Komakino Store - Vancouver CA.

Komakino Store - Vancouver CA.

While searching for information about the label Komakino I came across a boutique in Vancouver Canada coincidentally called Komakino as well. The boutique carries a broad range of high end labels including Ann Demeulemeester, Damir Doma, Gianni Barbato, Julius, Number (N)ine, Passarella Death Squad, Raf Simons, Rick Owens, Sak, Simeon Farrar, The Viridi-Anne, and Undercover.

It seems the idea of the Guerrilla store started by COMME des GARÇONS.

I just want to point out they have a very functional and visually simplistic online store located here.

The Komakino Gurrilla Store is located 109 West Cordova St Gastown Vancouver Canada.

Nostalgic Electro Comments | Aug 01 2008

nostalgicElectro

I’m straight up saying that its a known fact that Nostalgic Electro is now in. With my previous post about what is next with electro, these 3 tunes will now prove this theory even further. They are by NYC based Chew Fu who is a contributer for Palms Out Sound, Kissy Sell Out a UK producer who has a show on BBC1 and the Parisian Ed Bangin producer sebastiAn.

Ben E. King - Stand By Me (Chew Fu RMX)

NightSwimming - R.E.M(Kissy Sell Out Bmore Re-Edit)

Baba O’Riely - The Who (sebastiAn Remix)

What is next in music, there’s only so many nostalgic tunes that deserve to be brought back from the dead, when we exhaust these what will we do…?Is electro going to last for ever or fade out soon?The music industry is blending every other style of music and its getting pretty ridiculous so why not just go all out? What will it be replaced with? Folkno (folk & techno), Op-unk (opra & punk), hip-tic (hip-hop & celtic)?
