adidas Snowboarding | Japan

posted by on 23/09/2014

It’s fair to say that snowboarding isn’t exactly a popular sport over here, but if you’re a follower of any content put out by sports brands such as Nike and adidas, you’re bound to have been exposed to some form of media around the sport. As the first installment of their new ‘Nomad‘ series,  adidas take a trip to Japan to test out the 2014 collection of gear. In the mountains of Hokkaido and the streets of Sapporo, some boarders, who 90% of the UK population has never heard of, take to the snow and show off their skills. A sport that we never do unless on holiday, but always appreciate watching as these daredevils risk their lives for our viewing pleasure. Thanks, adidas. Click through to see the video.

365 Postcards By Lorraine Loots

posted by on 19/09/2014

Talent comes in many different forms, you can be a great singer, dancer, musician, photographer, cook or artist as is the case for Lorraine Loots. Such talents, may I just add, I am envious of. Lorraine has honed her talents and has been crafting these beautifully crafted miniature paintings for postcards. She was inspired by her home town of Cape Town and began painting a series of these little masterpieces. Each piece is dated and can be seen on her website where anyone is able to purchase depending on availability a pieces are limited. Such is the demand for her work she has managed to sell painting that haven’t even been crafted yet. For those who aren’t able to get their hands on one of her painting fear not as she will be holding an exhibition of all of her work in January 2015. See more of her work and a short video explaining the project after the cut, i’d suggest watching the video on the basis that it was nicely shot if nothing else.

Vintage NASA Photographs in London

posted by on 18/09/2014

Manned moon landings have always been up for question. Did they happen? Why have we not put humans back on the moon since Apollo 17 in 1972? Still, with moon landings aside, one thing that we can be sure of is the beauty man has witnessed through the exploration of space by NASA. Space photos never seize to amaze me. Galaxies, planets, astronauts. It’s probably one of the most exciting ongoing exploration projects that the human race has conducted. What’s also exciting is that between the 19th September – 25th October, London BREESE Little Gallery is home to vintage NASA photographs taken between 1961 and 1980. Be sure to visit, and read on to check out some examples on what’s on show.

Apple Watch: Over-Connected

posted by on 13/09/2014

Coming out of my blogging hiatus to post this article that I feel is quite fitting for our generation and the place I’m currently at in life. Slowly starting to repel away from social networks and the stream of non-stop media messaging – imagine how much brand messaging that you’re hit with on a daily basis from the second you wake up to the time you hit the bed. Plus I’ve got intense FOMO where I’ll end up refreshing my feeds for no damn reason, hence why I’ve deleted social applications off my phone to stop allowing it to distract me. The article is direct response to what Apple have just released – The Watch. For the first time, I’m not liking their product nor see it’s purpose. It’s just another level of busyness to add to our lives, it doesn’t simplify anything – heck why does a 1-3 second stretch to take your phone out of your pocket justify a watch? Another thing to distract us from the experience we call life. This quote from the cover story in this week’s Time stood out for me: The reality of living with an iPhone, or any smart, connected device, is that it makes reality feel just that little bit less real. One gets over-connected, to the point where the thoughts and opinions of distant anonymous strangers start to feel more urgent than those of your loved ones who are in the same room as you. One forgets how to be alone and undistracted. More on the reverse.

En Route | The Snap Up

posted by on 05/09/2014

Strange ideas aren’t always bad. I came across this short film promoting a campaign that will run this weekend by Japanese clothing brand En Route. They are running a ‘crowd-sourced fashion show’ in Tokyo, whereby models (wearing the brands apparel) will walk around various areas of the city, while passers by take snaps on their phones. The incentive? Upload your photo to the brands site through an app, and if your photo is chosen you could take home a whopping 1,000 yen (just under £6) from cashier men walking around the city. Quirky, but interesting. Low cost (no venue hire), user-generated content (through the photos) and a ton of interactions from the general public (those who will be buying the products!). Watch the promo video after the cut.

Ms Lauryn Hill | Outlook Festival Opening Concert

posted by on 04/09/2014

My love affair started with Lauryn Hill at 6 years old when I convinced my parents to buy my Walkman’s first tape; Fugees’ The Score album. It’s fair to say that with a relationship lasting 20 years, my adoration for her runs pretty deep. However, as much as L-Boogie holds the spot of one of my favourites of all time, a history of hit-and-miss shows – from not showing up to erratic behaviour left my expectations for whenever I was to finally see her live, pretty low. But amongst good vibes brought by the thick crowd of slightly pissed up festival ravers, a stellar warm up show and DJ set, epic surroundings and the knowledge I was about to see one of my favourites ever, even tapered expectations couldn’t dim my excitement when she hit the stage.

Hong Kong in 1950′s

posted by on 01/09/2014

Lost for words, this is some of the best black and white photography I’ve ever stumbled on. Self-taught photographer Fan Ho began documenting the world around him at a young age because of his fascination with the hustle and bustle of the urban environment. Each one of these shots uses light, shadows and shapes so well to tell a story – utterly captivating and visually striking. Each one of these is incredible, it’ll make you want to pick up a camera and chase the light. Literally.

River Island Autumn/Winter 2014 Campaign

posted by on 01/09/2014

Last week River Island invited us to a rather lavish dinner at a secret location in central London to celebrate the launch of their Autumn/Winter 2014 campaign. While at dinner, the fashion brand unveiled their campaign film and gave us a glimpse of its conception with a behind the scenes clip. This season RI have adopted a stylised approach by placing strong looks on bold coloured backgrounds and very minimal props – so we’re left with a striking presentation keeping the clothing as the focal point. On top of that, this also marks the launch of RI’s first TV advert which will be broadcast from today. Check it out after the break.
