QED Comments | Jun 21 2008

QEDQuod Erat Demonstrandum, shotened to QED, is a Berlin based fashion label, founded by Julia Boge, Simona Gabrieli and Jasmin Moallim in 2006. During their studies at fashion school, the three discovered their common love for the colour black, which kick-started their subsequent collaboration, that has culminated in the debut collection “Jerry Lewis vs. Gari Kasparov” for fall/winter 06/07. A mixture between minimalism and playfulness., the garments adhere to the rules of classical menswear tailoring but mix up the uniformity with playful details.  In 2007 at the Beck’s Fashion Experience QED was selected as the only menswear collection on show in a field of designers set to represent the best of young German design talent.  QED_1QED_2QED_3 Personally I enjoy QED’s simplicity of the garments yet attention to detail with fit and unique detailing on each piece.

Canadian Mens Wear Comments | May 28 2008

I know that there are great boutiques through out Canada but the two that come to my mind when I hear the term mens wear are Nomad Shop - Toronto and Reborn - Montreal. These two stores carry progressive international labels only found in a select boutique’s throughout the world. Some of my favorite labels brought to Canada by one or the other of these two stores are Comme des GarçonsCommon ProjectsCorpus ClothingNom De GuerreRobert GellerRoganSupremeSurface To Air, Visvim and W+H all available at Nomad Shop. At Reborn we have Henrik VibskovFifth Avenue Shoe RepairRaf Simons.

 I have never yet been to Reborn however Nomad is one of the best stores in Toronto I feel. Great service, great labels and a very humble interior.

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.


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…

Juno and David Choe Unite Comments | Jan 10 2008


I recently saw the newly released movie Juno, it was wonderful! I would deffinetly urge anyone who enjoys a good film or anyone who wants to pretend there legit to go see it now! During the opening credits I noticed a familiar artistic style, I couldn’t place it quite yet though. Throughout the film this familularity was daunting me until finally I remembered. The artist David Choe did the opening credits as well as some post production during the movie. For those who don’t know Juno the trailer is below. For those who don’t know David Choe there is a trailer for his documentary. Oh just so you know Facebook commissioned Choe to do multiple murals in their office here.
