I grabbed the Canon G9 and headed to Brooklyn Projects opening and launch of the Nemo produced book FREESTYLIN’. Nike SB’s, John Martin asked Nemo creative director Mark Lewman if he could do anything for BMX what would he do. Lewman brought the old band together from the Freestylin’ days and put together an amazing historical outline of the pioneering days of freestyle BMX. Spike Jones and Andy Jenkins collaborated in their original roles and put together the book.

BMX racing will debut in China at the Olympics next month and Nike SB has been doing promotions to bring focus to the new event. Michael Lau designed special limited edition Blazers for the promotion and if you were at the party in LA the he also design two special edition toys and a show box that is so unique and original!

French fashion photographer Thierry LeGoues’ Soul series is both beautiful and provoking. Choosing “Soul” as this series title is very fitting, with the white set and the nude models and the fact that he is a “fashion” photographer, they have nothing to hide behind, both the model and photographer really are bearing their soul in the final image.

What do you get when you mix a provocative photographer, a reigning streetwear brand, and a certain chartreuse muppet? One not-to-be-missed show, that’s what.

Big dreams need big hair…or at least a little volume. The peak of hair metal and glam rock may have passed, but the big hair, body suits, and supercharged androgyny has found a permanent place in pop culture’s ensemble. Epic groups like the New York Dolls, Motley Crue, and T-Rex made an unmistakable impact on the look of rock and roll across the world.

So having a big head isn’t always bad, right? In fact a magnification in attitude is directly proportionate to the magnification of ones hairstyle, which of course refers to volume, as opposed to density. Its just science. Getting started requires some tools; you will need hair product with a good strong hold and matte or dull finish (we don’t want to look like Ponyboy). Next comes the hardware, a good blow dryer, comb, brush, and flat iron is about all you need to do just about anything. Don’t skimp on your flat iron, a good one will last longer, work much better, and be easier on your hair. So mess it up, piece it out, keep it charged and, oh ya, be ready for and attitude adjustment!

Illustration by Shintaro Kago    Inspiration; something that stimulates the human mind to creative thought or to the making of art. Inspiration is an autonomous process that we are subjected to each day. Unfortunately many of us rarely include stimulation from an abstract, or disconnected source. We look at Vogue, or Elle for fashion inspiration and flip through Dwell for home decor ideas. What happens if we draw fashion inspiration from many detached sources and apply them in non-literal ways?  The above illustration by Shintaro Kago, is prime matter to be influenced by. Shintaro is a well know erotic grotesque manga artist, who was recently featured in last moths Vice magazine the 4-ACO-DMT issue. This images ability to influence and inspire is limited only by the viewer. One person may have an amazing idea about make up, or a new accessory. Personally, I see footwear inspiration in this image. I wonder how I can apply what’s coming out of her faucets to a lacing scheme on my favorite sneakers. Fastening inspiration from theoretical sources assures that it will be personal to you, stop being literally inspired.
