The look of the moment that I firmly support is the tucked in shirt. Of Course it was a big trend in the 90s. Lots of current trends people are stealing from the 90s should actually STAY in the 90s but this one is here to stay. It looks great and it will separate you from every one else in the room. Don't be afraid and try it out the next dinner or bar you hit up.
Ava Nirui is a free-lance writer, photographer, and has gained some hype as a DIY designer manipulating Barbies, Nikes, and sweatshirts into her own sort of bootleg x bougie brand. She's someone to watch in 2017. Take a look.
Months ago one of the most down to earth and talented skaters passed away after a long fight with cancer. I had the pleasure of hanging with him on a few occasions years ago when I used to DJ the original HYDE lounge in LA. He was cool as shit even as teenager back then. Today I pay tribute to his immaculate style and untouchable cool. RIP Dylan.
The Saint Laurent "East-West Skeleton Calfskin Leather Wallet". I absolutely love this wallet and it garners compliments whenever I pull it out to pay for things. I have the basic wallet but there are a few more versions as well if you are in need of something smaller. Enjoy!
I've been not keeping up with this site for a minute but I'm back and will work hard to update daily. One of my favorite collaborations of the last few years. We already know how hip A$AP is and he has rejuvenated a brand that had been dormant for years. Another case of brands using rappers to make them relevant again. Brilliant marketing by these brands. Take a look.
I think we can agree that "Uptown Funk" is the song of the year thus far. Whether you are sick of it or not doesn't matter because it's obvious how far this song has reached. Even my mom loves the song, and she wouldn't be able to name one song made in the last ten years. The man behind the track is none other than Mark Ronson. Young people have been familiar with Ronson for a long time, whether its from his DJ days in the coolest rooms in NY or from his award winning project with Amy Winehouse. The man has great vision and taste and his choice in clothing shows.
"818 PT. 1" BY ME
I'm in Miami now headed back to L.A. then headed off to vacation with my wonderful girlfriend in London, Paris, and the South of France. I wanted to make a mix for my travels to share with y'all. I'm happy to have been born in the valley, and ecstatic that I get to travel and make & play music. I'm way up I feel blessed, pun intended. Enjoy the mix!
NIKE WHITE AND GUM PACK
This pack is supposed to be released any day but I can't seem to find much info on it. It seems to only be releasing on the Japanese site ATMOS but the site seems to navigate in only Japanese. My favorite from the bunch are the Huaraches but they are all worthy of getting if you can find them. All white trainers will be big this spring/summer. I will post more info when I know the deal. For now you can salivate on these pics.
Matt Hitt is the kind of kid that makes you hate him before even meeting him. He's a successful model, he is lead singer of the indie band the Drowners, and his longtime girlfriend is actress Dakota Johnson from Fifty Shades of Grey. But we are paying homage to him because he's an impeccable dresser. The 26 year old dresses like the coolest hipster you know, only COOLER. Keep it up Matt, we dig it.
"DOUBTED" BY ILOVEMAKONNEN
Atlanta rappers and artists are the true rock stars of music right now. They have always been the quirky, off-beat talents in pop culture and ILOVEMAKONNEN continues the tradition. Most of you know him from the "Goin' Up on a Tuesday" fame but his whole EP is worth listening to as we roll into the summer. "Doubted" is a stand out from the bunch. Enjoy!
