English designer Nigel Cabourn spoke to French retailer Tenue de Nimes about his upcoming Spring/Summer 2010 collection. Heavily inspired by his father’s service in the British Army during WWII, Cabourn shows the quality of the vintage pieces. Using exclusive fabrics like Indian Drill Cotton and custom closures, this collection looks like it’s going to be a problem.
This dope video, documented by Creative Control, shows the design and production processes of wood jewelry making company GoodWoodNY. I love what both companies are doing in this culture by bringing an unabridged and “I’m gonna do what the fuck I want” attitude to it. The video shows off some of the many cutsom jobs that have been done by the jewelry company including the Jets piece for Curren$y and the Chace Infinite Africa piece. Sneak peaks of the limited BluRoc pieces that are set to drop at the Gramercy on Feb. 25 were also featured.
I’ve admired the quality and craftsmanship that shines through from Billykirk. This feeling was heightened after seeing a behind the scenes video from A Continuous Lean a few months ago. What makes is all the better, they make all of their products by hand in their studio in New Jersey. They are set to drop their Spring 2010 line and it looks GREAT. Check it out…
A Continuous Lean
Yikes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That’s all…..
The homey sQ put me onto this mood blogger. Once I typed in the link, my eyes nearly fell out of my head. JRS Rules has amassed a crazy amount of pictures that convey an emotion/mood/eruption inside of you. Like any form of art, it is totally subjective. I know that since I was put on, I’ve been HOOKED. School yourselves….
Once again shouts to my homey sQ for schooling me…..

While browsing vimeo, I strolled onto Jake Davis‘ account. The stylish photographer, film director, and blogger has added another installment to his recently launched project called Jake Davis Test Shots. I first saw him doing this at (capsule) tradeshow last month. Those featured included Anoma Whittaker, fashion director at Complex Mag, Josh and Trav from Street Etiquette, and menswear designer Mark McNairy. The most current video takes the camera out of the basement of the tradeshow and places it in SoHo, in front of Sean Sullivan of The Impossible Cool. The mix of street style with clean, crisp videography, and the genious of Jake Davis, this is poised to become a great collection of short trailers.

With my recent zest to put my film schooling to the test, comes my infatuation with stop motion. Stop motion is an animation video technique that makes an object appear to be moving on its own. This is done by moving the object frame by frame in a continuous action. Can’t wait to start trying this shit out! I’ll keep you guys posted. Check out some of these dope stop motion clips I found.
