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 […]

Mr. Happy | A Vice Short

posted by on 23/03/2015

I just got round to watching this short film put out by Vice starring Chance the Rapper and was pleasantly surprised. The story centres around a young man suffering from heartbreak and depression, so this isn’t something to watch if you’re sensitive to such themes. The basic premise though is clever and its characters believable, even the cinematography is appealing. I’m not sure Chance is quite as good at acting as he is rapping but you definitely feel empathetic with his character. You’ll see the “twist” coming a mile off but it doesn’t undermine the quality of the short, click play after the cut.

Adidas Originals | Supercolor with Pharrell Williams

posted by on 23/03/2015

“Don’t decide your style based on my style” says Pharrell, the face of Adidas’ latest campaign: Supercolor. The campaign reinvents the iconic Superstar sneaker (which is celebrating it’s 45th birthday this year) using diversity as inspiration – the shoe will be available in FIFTY different colours and you know there are sneaker heads out there who’ll purchase the whole range. This will solve a lot of first world problems problems, there’s nothing more annoying than seeing a nice pair of trainers and hating all the colour ways – see, problem solved. Anyways, check out the short and sweet promo film after the break.

Timelapse | A Taste of Austria by FilmSpektakel

posted by on 20/03/2015

Simply stunning. Filmmakers, Thomas Pöcksteiner and Peter Jablonowski spend two years capturing every aspect of their home country Austria – from the more rural, mountainous views right through to the urban cityscapes. I’ve never had a desire to visit Austria in particularly but this timelapse does a pretty good job at convincing me to add to the list! I love the transitions and the variation in locations, the textures and also the way music has been incorporated here. Quite simply a spectacular ad for the country! Watch after the break.

Adidas Originals Tubular Runner New Releases

posted by on 19/03/2015

After picking up my first pair of Tubular Runner’s a couple of weeks ago, I’ve grown to like the shape more and more. Adidas Originals seem to be really pushing the design with a string of new releases in black, stone, blue and yellow. While an all black colour way will always be my choice, the “Sea to the Sky” pack in blue and yellow has a real appeal. Check them out after the cut.

Song of the Day | Jose James – It’s All Over Your Body

posted by on 18/03/2015

I saw last week that Jose James is re-releasing his debut album ‘The dreamer’ (brilliant album) and it inspired me to give his albums a re-listen. One of the tracks that stand out for me is ‘It’s All Over Your Body’; this song is a fusion of so many styles of music but typically it’s a soulful-jazz cut with one wicked drum pattern. You’ll find this one on his ‘No Beginning No End’ album which was actually the first body of work I’d ever heard from him. Listen after the break.

NOTCH Autumn/ Winter 2015 Lookbook

posted by on 18/03/2015

In previous lookbooks, NOTCH continued to keep it “safe” sticking to the clean-cut, simple style that they’re known for. Inspired by 20th century sculptures and furniture, the British brand have gone down the traditional route for Autumn/ Winter 2015 with the use of materials like corduroy and key pieces like Macs and Bombers. But they’ve managed to retain their modern look and feel where they’ve experimented slightly with patterns and prints more. But again they’ve kept it subtle and in line with their ethos, they continue to exercise the art of clean-cut, well-constructed understated clothing. Check it out after the break.
