Earlier today YouTube has launched a Movies section on its website, with over 400 full-length films for your on-demand viewing pleasure and ofcourse free. The new section will feature films from U.S studios such as Lionsgate, MGM, Sony Pictures and UK service Blinkbox. Unfortunately as always most of the better content is only available for those in the US. We do have a fine range of classic Jackie Chan movies and err Bollywood. Click here for the full selection.
Doesn’t this look like a lobby for an overly posh Mayfair Hotel to ya’ll? I was quite shocked to find out it is actually Westminster University’s Regent Street campus. The decor, colours, furniture goes so well together. I don’t even want to show you what my university looks like inside after this. More tomorrow.
Lacoste have dropped their latest range of kicks, collaboration with fashion retail company Urban Outfitters. The new range is called the Lacoste Storm, a classic update from the ‘Chukka’ model- the sneakers feature a white sole and suede all over. They come in 3 colours: purple, deep green and navy blue. There are available now exclusively at Urban Outfitter stores!
I hate rain. It gives my chinos the ‘pissed myself’ look, turns my hair curly which results in me looking like a burnt Jonas brother. On the other hand, there is something beautiful about rain. I love the reflection of the wet pavement, the umbrellas and the ‘cold’ atmosphere of the photo in general. One thing though, those folk who’re travelling home on the underground home at rush hour, make sure you close your umbrellas before you near the subway entrance as it slows down everything. Rihanna, I need you and your umbrella.
If I am totally honest I have only really been properly into fashion over the last couple of months. I always had an appreciation for certain brands and certain looks but would never go out of my way to try and emulate or recreate the look for myself. It hasn’t been until recently that I have found myself diversifying my look or at least having the want to diversify. The preppy look never was my cup of tea however after looking at the stills from the Morris 2010 Fall/Winter collection I can actually visualise myself in some of the looks or at least in certain pieces from the collection. Peep the collection on the flipside.
Take a look at some of the items from the H&M Fall/Winter collection. With the opening of the brands online store imminently, it is good to see some of the designs that will be on offer. In the video we see a few well rounded outfit ideas that could potentially be recreated instantly without any alterations as well as some not so….lets just say some not very nice outfits lol. I suppose we are to look beyond some of the off key styling and look at the pieces individually before making a complete judgement but in any event please enjoy the video.
In my post yesterday on Bape’s Mr.Bathing Ape collection, I mentioned how they’ve failed in terms of styling the shoot and why this really surprised me. So I’d like to show you an example of dope Japanese layering from a Japanese editorial that Moncler were featured on. The spread was featured in the September issue of SENSE magazine with the photography by Shiro Katgiri and styling by Shinichi Miter. More after the cut.
I posted the military-inspired brand’s Fall/Winter 2010 collection a few weeks back and since then a few more pieces have surfaced. They’ve added a range of key outwear, work shirts, logo tees, button down and an overcoat. don’t have a single piece of green clothing in my wardrobe and I’m now thinking of giving up the whole hate of green for fashion. All their jackets seem hard-wearing, functional yet very articulate and well designed. Rest of the collection after the cut.
One of the most clichéd tourist photographs is standing next to/in one of London‘s iconic red telephone boxes. I don’t see the big deal about them, most of them (like this one) reeks of urine and other toxic waste material. They’re all filled with sex-line phone cards as well, clever advertising? no I don’t think so but then again there are some real freaks on this planet, so I’m sure some people make use of those numbers.
Meet Chaz Cruz, a San Diego-based photographer who will one day photograph my wedding, if all goes to plan. I first came across his work on Street Etiquette’s blog when he shot those guys for one of their posts. Then after visiting his website, I was in awe of work. He some how manages to capture the best moments and make them feel so alive and vibrant within the photos as if you’re right there standing next to the couple. I can only dream of being this good one day, more of his work after the cut.
