Dear fashion victims, please take note of this date, because everything won't be the same, later. Next 30th of November YOOX will put online a selection of hand made clothes by the Martin Margiela's Artisanal Line. Each piece' ic completely hand made and represents more an Art-work than a normal dress. We can't wait!!!
Honeyee has added some gems in its online store. Our fave is this jacket made in collaboration between Hiroshi Fujiwara and Jun Takahashi (AFFA Anarchy Forever, Forever Anarchy). We think that it is simply a complete masterpiece. C'mon go there and buy it!

Think about that: it's a classic! Christmas is coming and a list of your friends and relatives are waiting for a gift and you have zero idea on what buying. Thanks to the guys at Dope Factory, now you'll have a brilliant solution: THE DF GIFT CARD. There you'll find eleven different amounts, from 35 until 500 Euro that can be spent in a whole year. Maybe the best Christmas's gift ever? :-)
Finally, one of the US workwear big hitters wades in deep with some quality selvage denim!
C.N. Williamson and E.E. "Colonel" Dickie began their business careers in the "vehicle and harness" business in Bryan, Texas.
In 1918, the name changed to U.S. Overall Company and in 1922, C. Don Williamson joined with his father and cousin and renamed it the Williamson-Dickie Manufacturing Co. From its conception as a bib overall company, today Dickies has grown to be the number one manufacturer of work apparel worldwide.
Dickies, known for its tough reliable clothing has drawn on this heritage to produce Dickies California Selvage jean. It was only a matter of time before Dickies delved deep into its history and realized it was time to go back to basics to produce a quality denim whose attention to detail is second to none!
Made from the finest Zimbabwean cotton then woven into red selvage denim fabric in Japan on vintage shuttle looms. The denim is then constructed by a small family run Japanese manufacturer- whom Dickies are their only US clients.
No detail has been overlooked in the process of making these jeans, right down to the classic workwear cut and the reproduction of the old Dickies union labels, creating an authentic workwear denim trouser.
To be sold at selected European stores.

We've been happy to know that BOND INTERNATIONAL (if you don't know what it used to be and what it has meant for street culture, we're sorry for you...) is going to be back, even if for a short time, during Christmas period. Where? Just off Brick Lane, in Cheshire Street. Nice to hear, sometime, a good news in these chaotic days...
Thanks to BNTL for pics and info!

STOOL Exhibition by Misha (PAM)
BLACK & BLUE Gallery
302/267-271 Cleveland St, Redfern
From the 13th until the 28th of November
"Misha Hollabach's latest works is steeped in visual signposts and inferences to faeces. A shrine to shit , it mixes metaphorical messages with overt sculptural and visual detritus to recreate the viewers experience of faeces. In this representation of shit , Misha touches upon the etymological origins of faeces which derives from faex, the latin for dregs, shit becomes a metaphor for unwanted It is his first solo exhibition, a process of clearing the proverbial bowels in what is a visceral visual exploration of what is every human's first sculptural creation, that of faeces".

SUPER 8 Magazine is a poster magazine printed in A3 format and it's for free. Now has just been released their 3rd ISSUE. The philosophy behind this magazine is based on the number 8: each issue has a title that is composed by a letter plus the number 8, that creates a word with a sense. For instance: C8 that means "lovesick", D8 that means "learned", R8 that means "broken" and so on... What else?!? We like it and we support it. Well done!

There's no doubt that the CHICK OF THE YEAR is Miss Sasha Grey. We've seen her on the latest Sodenbergh's movie and we've seen her on the FORFEX project ran by our dear friend GIO. Now, we've just discovered this astonishing feature over American Apparel. She looks so damn sexy. Very very good.
