Caribbean Cruising – Haiti & Jamaica | Royal Caribbean

It’s not often that you can claim to have woken up in a different country four days in a row but that’s exactly what happened when Adam and I took to the seas and embarked on our first full length cruise, courtesy of Royal Caribbean. A quick plane ride (please note the sarcasm as this plane […]

Angel 'Julie' – Acoustic 64 SB.TV

posted by on 30/04/2010

Received this in my inbox yesterday and it was a pleasant surprise, I almost closed it after watching 5 seconds of the video as I dismissed Angel for being another SB.TV Grime artist with a Lil Wayne type tattoo addiction. He needs a makeover, someone find him a stylist pronto but I’ll stop judging his appearance. He’s a singer and an accomplished songwriter (JLS/Cheryl Cole) signed to Universal. This one of the better A64s I’ve seen, not that I’ve seen many. Video after the cut.

Ashes – A Short Movie

posted by on 30/04/2010

After the influx of music posts in the past few days, I think it’s time for a some photography/film-related posts. I randomly stumbled across this short movie while I was browsing on Vimeo. It’s directed by a French director that goes by the name of David Dang and what caught my attention is the fact it was filmed on a Canon Mark II. I really need to get myself one of them but without selling a limb or two I don’t see it happening any time soon. The movie is emotionally gripping, view it after the cut.

Acne Demin Plimsolls 2010

posted by on 30/04/2010

Acne say it’s all about denim plimsolls this summer as they unveil quick snaps what to expect. I do not remember the last time I wore plimpolls, for me they’ve always been something to quickly slide into when I can’t be asked to make an effort. However they’re so practical and simple so its easy to dress up or down- these can be quite stylish if you want to go for the preppy look. If your anything like me, you’ll be going on holiday for the weekend and you end up packing a suitcase full of sneakers because you cant decide which ones you’re going to wear, then these are perfect as they’ll squeeze in anywhere. They come in a bleached denim look of a washed out black&grey colourway. More photos after the cut.

Update: Armani & Reebok…Why?

posted by on 30/04/2010

Armani and Reebok originally announced their footwear and apparel collaboration in late January, well now they’re giving us a close but not so close look into the joint venture. More photos from this shocking collab! I’m really impress so far it looks awesome especially the photography, I cant wait to see more, I take back the negative jibes I gave it last time (still not feeling the footwear i’m sorry), us bloggers speak to soon sometimes..

Ray-Ban Wayfarer Ultra Limited Edition

posted by on 30/04/2010

Yesterday we attended the My-Wardrobe.com press day for their Autumn/Winter 2010 launch and one of the stand out pieces for me personally was this limited edition wayfarer. More from that press day later but for now I felt this wayfarer was dope enough to deserved it’s own post. What makes them so special? The shades are made of black acetate with a unique serial number that is stamped on the inside of the temple. The Ray-Ban logo and 1952 (the year the wayfarer launched) are engraved in 18k white gold at the temple as well. More photos after the cut.

A Bathing Ape “Sta” Carbiners

posted by on 29/04/2010

I’ve always admired BAPE‘s clothing and accessories but have always felt they were way overpriced. I know it’s all exclusive but they aren’t really that exclusive anymore since they have an online store. I’m slowly growing out of street wear but that doesn’t mean I won’t stop wearing sneakers. Anyway I like accessories and these new carbiners from Bathing Ape are pretty dope. They’ve got the shape of the unmistakable ‘Sta‘ logo and come in a variety of colours. More after the cut.

Eminem – 'Not Afraid' New Single

posted by on 29/04/2010

Eminem’s road to Recovery has officially begun with the release of his highly anticipated single “Not Afraid”. This is the first offering off of his new album Recovery which is due to hit stores June 22th. The track is dope, definitely uplifting and I think it’ll be a smash on the radio with that infectious hook. It’s been produced by Boi-Da, the brains behind Drake’s Best I Ever Had & Over. Song after the cut.

Pac Div “Don’t Mention It” Mixtape

posted by on 29/04/2010

Pac Div is back ! The California hip hop group Pac Div has finally released their new mixtape. Now words can even describe how elated I am that Pac Div has released this mixtape. I’ve been following Pac Div since ’08, so I guess you can say I’m super psyched. They embody a chill, laid-back Cali vibe and kinda have hints of some 90′s hip-hop elements within their format and structure of their group.  View the cover, tracklist, videos, and songs after the cut.

LTD Ceramic Watches

posted by on 29/04/2010

LTD have dropped a dope collection of limited edition watches; the silhouette is similar to that of ToyWatch but these are a hell of a lot cheaper and just as slick. It does seem though everyone is jumping onto the sports diver silhouette, I’ve seen them around a fair bit but what makes this collection different? they’re made with smooth ceramic that cradles precision quartz that contain a dial made from lacquered enamel (whatever that means!). The collection is limited to 50 pieces per style worldwide, more colourways after the cut.
