PreView

A new shirt company is making an impact in the world and I would go out and say could possible be the new HoH of 2k9. based out of Rome Italy 5 PreView seems to draw influence from the punk / thrash / electro scene. 

Is the whole alt masked Dj thing an inspiratoin of 5PreView or is that whole mystery dj/producer being influenced by them? Anyways can anybody say Bloody Beetroots…? HeartsRevolution…?

A bit of background…When House of Holland came out with the large font t-shirt prints with witty sayings everyone was lovin’ it. With their new lines, HoH have definitely a more mature design yet still true to their original “clame to fame”. Once HoH set this lets say style H&M quickly cough on with half ass pointless saying.  So with that being said I am calling 5PreView as being the shirt company of 2k9.

Lets leave it at I am lovin’ the design/shirts from 5PreView def. watch out for them!

Yves Saint Laurent - The End Of An Era Comments | Jun 04 2008

YSL Hommage

For most this is probably old news however if you are unaware Yves Saint Laurent passed away June 1 2008 at the age of 71. Saint Laurent was widely considered the last of a generation of fashion designers that included Christian Dior and Coco Chanel and made Paris the fashion capital of the world. I posted 3 videos one from his Haute couture show in 1962, a Fall/Winter 2008 YSL show and an arty manifesto from S/S08.

A worth while exhibit is being displayed at the Montreal Museum of Fine Art.

For the first time in 25 years, a museum is putting on a major retrospective of Yves Saint-Laurent’s work. And while Love, opening today at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, decidedly favors womenswear (and deservedly so), there are still a few things for the gents—early sketches and drawings of his dabbling in menswear, not to mention photos of the dapper man himself. (Sadly, there’s nothing from the Ford or Pilati eras.) The show is timed to the 40th anniversary of YSL’s founding, and will head to San Francisco’s de Young Museum later this year.
Love: Yves Saint Laurent, today through Sept. 28, Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, 1380 Sherbrooke St. W., (514) 285-2000.

I’ve been a long time lover of Corpus Clothing from way back when they put their first season out so no doubt I was pumped when they finally put their their Spring/Summer 08 online. It took a while but here it is. Corpus S/S’08. There were no official looks for women however their women products are available at ShopStyle.com. For men and women Corpus is available at Oak NYC and Revolve Clothing…. and how can I forget the mens boutique NOMAD in Toronto.

And for magical purposes the below image is Corpus’ Spring’09 preview, ENJOY and become excited.

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 ->www.hedislimane.com/diary/index.php

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.
