Last week I posted about this new line that is coming out by ADIDAS based on Star Wars… Now there is this… Daft Punk Style…
So I’ve been looking through my computer at some shit I had in a folder called “Stuff to Post” and I came across a lot I should have posted… Sooooo I’m gonna start doing that…
First up is this adidas classic’s collection of Star Wars kicks… Some of these are too dope…
Just waiting on them to release that Dack shoe… I’ll be first in line to rock them Dack’s (II)
We have a very nice short film for you all today by Yi Zhou ft. Pharrell Williams in an acting role. The film is based off of Gogol’s Petersburg tales. Gogol is a Russian author of the 19th century and wrote a story called “The Nose”. This whole thing reminds me of some kind of surrealist take on Hitchcock. (Black and white, Knife motifs, minimal dialogue (none in this case))
I like it, its a good application of 3D modeling, its not “poppy” but there is just one thing. I know that Pharrell is interested in the arts, he keeps doing these “collaborations” with Nego and Kaws or what have you. But something commercial is afoot. What is making me suspect this is a couple of things. One is that Pharrell is wearing BBC/Ice Cream, and we all know that he rocks them harder than rob dyrdek sports monster drink shirts. and then we see the red chair with legs, another Pharrell “collab” hmmmm. This was also filmed with a RED hmmmm. this is hard. If you don’t know what a RED is, its the most powerful HD digital camera on the planet.
hmmm, I don’t know, what does the public think? Art or Design?
Because if you ask me, a lot of fashion labels are starting to put out high dollar for video art and short films just to have a viral video that shows their newest season line. They are well done, even artfully done, but they still are commissioned work and are commercials. Don’t get me wrong, I respect both art and design, but there is a difference, one is not the other. But I think the public generally does not get that distinction. So prove me wrong, state your case.
The homie Zeph just did a major update to his website. He’s a real humble guy who loves art, sneakers, and quality music. (Hell, the guy introduced me to Lupe Fiasco before he blew up.) He’s from Chicago and stayed in Kalamazoo for awhile where Bendey n I did a mural with him and a group of kids, now I believe he’s residing in Milwaukee with his lovely wife. He still drops by Chicago frequently and Kalamazoo tho from time to time.
You can find his work in Chicago’s Museum of Science and Industry, Def Jam Headquarters, various athletes and musicians houses, our fam @ Jugrnaut, magazines, and on 106 and Park…just to name a few haha. Continue reading
Whatever happened to the Du Rag? I remember about the time when cash money dropped, du rags were found on practically every black dude you passed. The Du Rag was such a quintessential piece of the african american male garment, that it was quickly adopted by the fair skinned homies, no matter how ridiculous…or quasi passable it looked:
In my germane attempt at becoming a real man, I’m looking to fall fashion to help me out. Esquire shows us what’s to come in this video by the departamento featuring the cast of Quentin Tarantino’s new movie, Inglourious Basterds. I’m also really excited for the movie itself. I think men under estimate how sweet Brad Pitt is. He was genius in Burn After Reading.
I’ll honestly say that I would never wear these jawns.
Nike loves doing shoe mashups of classic movies from the 80′s and 90′s. With that said, check out these Teen Wolf Dunks. Homebro in the back had to squeeze into that 55 (pause).
More photo’s of this jawn after the break.
