So the year has come to an end, I’m just going to go ahead and write a post on the highs and lows of the year well mostly the highs. This is basically my list of what was the awesomest this year. For those who are unaware this is all my opinion so feel free to disagree.
So I was planning on doing a post on the brand “Swagger” since my dude put me up on it a while back. Out of randomness the conversation went like this :
Me – This brand is hot
Him – You know who rocks it ?
Me – Drizzy ???
Him – No, Lupe the Killer !!!
Okay I’m not saying this is a reason why everyone should love this brand, it’s just me providing evidence for the fact that Lupe is probably the most stylish emcee out there. But fuck the fanboyism, more to the point Lupe has a brand label of his own now. His label is called “Trilly & Truly” and they hooked up with the Japanese brand Swagger for a very dope collaboration on some jeans and jackets. Check it out !!! Read More
Pacific Division – Taste
Pac Div be the troof yo. They got a few singles out and they’re the best group on the westcoast putting out music right now so give em a taste. Read More
Okay, I know. I do way too many sneaker related posts but it’s not my fault. Most of the blame goes to Nike for releasing so many dope jawnts like all in a week. They never stop and today it’s these spring 09 terminators, what can I say all the colourways are looking mad fly.
So I was pretty disappointed when the main man. the illest designer Britain has ever known, Oswald Boateng was replaced as creative director of menswear at Givenchy. But the man who was appointed as his replacement wasn’t quite what you would call crap. Riccardo Tisci is an extremely talented designer to say the least, so it wasn’t very surprising when I saw Givenchy’s Spring/Summer line however it was still very impressive. He has a very dark, kinda hood feel to his clothing and I like that. Which leads me to these 2 new t-shirts, they’re dopeness they sort of have a biker,gothic style of look. It’s quite original and a direction which not many other high fashion labels are going in. So basically I applaud Riccardo Tisci, he has succeeded where my favourite designer failed(well he didn’t really fail but ya know).
The Notorious B.I.G Hypnotize
So I just heard some unreleased Biggie, according to some sources this was the track that helped him get that deal with Puff. Ultimately though this reminded me of the classic which has been playing on loop in my head all day.Enjoy!
I’m saying that like it’s news but it really isn’t. I keep going on about how great the Alexander McQueen x Puma turned out and now Puma’s back with two new hot and fresh collaborations. The first of the two is with sneaker boutique UNDEFEATED and it’s a special version of their Suede Mid II. Read More
