MC1 - Design/Concept House

I found this a couple of months back on Design Milk and I have to say that this layout is probably one of the most luxurious and peaceful designs I've seen in a minute. Very complex with it and also miminal usage of colors flow throughout the place. Check out the other rooms here.

100 Styles & Running - Lowell


Revolve Clothing is stocking the 100 Styles & Running "Lowell" boots and these are must grab on my radar for this winter. Leather upper body with a rubber sole complete this boot and they still have the street feel to them but a little more of a dress up touch as you can see. For those who have the love for high top sneakers and cant always go somewhere that sneakers are allowed then these are it..

Comme des Garcons for H&M - Japan Opening


Saturday was the set date for the much anticipated collaboration between Comme des Garcons and swedish clothing retailer H&M to launch their recent projects in Japan. More than 2,000 people were lined up for hours (and days!) to check out the newest pieces that dropped and its projected that the line will also show up here in the states within the next week.

Im glad that things like this happen between labels partly due to some CdG pieces being very expensive and whatnot and having this be a little bit of an outlet for the crowd who cant turn out x-amount of thousands for a outfit can get a high fashion look for cheaper. Check your local H&M stores for info to see if this line is coming your city.

Stussy x Original Fake - Towel

Stussy and Japan's Original Fake got together to do....a towel. Yeah, maybe a t-shirt would've been better in my opinion but it works, ya know? It reps the signature Kaws x's and its 12" x 38" and all on cotton material. Of course if Kaws has anything to do with something then you know that it's limited. Hit the Stussy online store for purchasing it.

Peace Out, Rap City!


Chris Schonberger, a columnist at High Snobiety, has informed us that finally Rap City will be pulling its plug and Im sure that no one gives a shit about that show anyways now though due to the flashy and non-talented artist that have came there throughout the recent years of the show.

Im a hip-hop fan from the time I was able to understand the human language..no shit. But, I remember coming home from school and tuning into this show and seeing the first host Chris Thomas and then on to Joe Clair, Big Lez and from there Big Tigga and now its some no namer who had its claim to fame from Myspace or some shit. For whatever its worth, this show used to be on for 2hrs a day and then on Wednesdays they'd play old school hip-hop music videos and whatnot and now I think its on for an hour and its nothing but Lil Wayne and other glamorous bullshit rap music.

Im actually glad this show is ending, now they can't show dumb ass rap videos in the afternoon that influence teenagers to become what they see and hear on television and think that its an easy task to become a one hit wonder with an effortless chorus and dance moves. All due respect to the pioneers of that show and the concept behind but like I stated...good fucking riddens.

Diz Gibran - Calypso Flow



I don't know of the any recent news of this cat...meaning, I know he used to run with the Diamond Supply Company (maybe he still does get down with them and Nick Tershay) but whatever the case may be, he gets nice on this tune and I'm sure this is a preview of whats to come in the near future. Check for more of his material on his myspace music page.
