A New Brand: IT'S oUr THinG

As you already know, we like to discover new brands to submit to your attention. So, when we received the look book from IT'S OUR THING we were really happy and we wanted to share their amazing stuff with you.
IT'S OUR THING is a Tokyo-based tshirt's brand, created and designed by PMKFA, a designer that used to work for brands such as WESC, DC Shoes, Uniqlo, Diesel, Honda/Scion, Wax Poetics, Ubiquity records and many more. We find that their graphics are fresh and their attention for details (in particular for the printing and packaging) is praiseworthy. Very well done.

Ron English, Lazarus Rising Exhibition
8 May - 6 June 2009Tuesday - Saturday 12 - 6pm, Thursdays 'til 8pm
Private view: Thurday 7th May 6 - 9pm
Book Signing Event: Saturday 9th May 12 - 2pm
Elms Lesters Painting Rooms
1-3-5 Flitcroft StLondonWC2H 8DH
The first ever UK solo show of American, billboard hi-jacking, political activist, pop surrealist RON ENGLISH.
What makes a Ron English piece of art instantly recognisable beyond its signature photorealist technique and brazen colour scheme is the utterly unique way in which the artwork presents a new idea embedded in the familiar, creating progressive mutations whilst referring to historical events. When English was an art student he started to hijack billboards as a way of displaying his art to as many people as possible – it was later that he realised he could make political statements by the same means. He replaced existing advertisements with his own hand-painted "subvertisements" spreading his own socio-political message. The new exhibition, with its deliberately provocative theme of resurrection, reflects the contemporary socio-political situation, presenting uncomfortable and dark insights beneath the slick, plastic face of our society.
Included in this exhibition, are some of Ron English's latest canvases from a series of paintings based on the 1937 Picasso masterpiece 'GUERNICA' Whilst the original depicted the tragedy of the Spanish Civil war, English has transcribed the composition to reflect our troubled times.
We think this exhibition deserves a view!! So save the dates...

Reporting Hiroki's words from his last interview for the magazine Streetwear today, he started Visvim brand initially with a sneaker, in an overcrowded sneaker market with brands, collaborations and new shoes popping up every day. Which was the key of his target? "I wanted to focus on comfort and I wanted to produce something that you can wear every day, what you wear with cold feet, chilly, a quality still fashionable product".
If you ask yourself why Visvim is still so strong when it comes to sneakers, have a look at this upcoming FBT's.
You can now preorder them at Concept Shop. Be quick!!!

23: tHe StReeT HiStOrY oF A ShOEs

The day that the Air Jordan shoe was released, an unsuspected revolution had begun. Air Jordans weren’t just shoes; they were an entity within themselves. No one was prepared for the overall impact that the shoe would have on sports, the shoe industry, and the streets.

23: The Street History of a Shoe documents the social, political, and economic phenomenon from the perspective of the streets. True voices from the hip-hop community, shoe experts, and everyday Air Jordan fanatics give their take on the greatest shoe to ever be produced.

We are looking forward to see it... Via 23 Novel!!

aIr JorDaN Xi SpAcE JaM: iT'S oFFiCial!!
