New Adventure.

A big move has been made to further the ClothSurgeon label, and to gain further experience of the Industry. I have moved to London to work for a relatively new company that is doing well with a simple but quirky concept. I have been brought in to help with all general duties and offer my design ideas and skills. Also I will be focusing on making a few outerwear pieces for Autumn/Winter 2010 for the ClothSurgeon label.

Also applied to Intern at Aitor Throup if I have the time! It would be incredible to work with him as im a big fan of his work and design process and illustrations. Few snaps of the Adventure so far.

Settling in.

Nike I like

I am a devoted swoosh wearer. I rarely wear Adidas, and try stay true to my addiction, even tho I did request a full old school Adidas tracksuit for Christmas.

Few bits have caught my eye and coincidentally re-released. The re-release is the Nike Tiempo Premier football boot, which I only recently blogged about. Slight modifications made to the sole and the leather looks super soft. These were my favourite boots in my playing days and the retro looks so nice I feel inspired to start playing again! Maybe near my new home, at Hackney marshes.
Also two sneakers, the Nike SB Blazer in a beautiful forest green colour with a perforated swoosh, quite festive with the red laces. Also the Torch Max 90 Current as I missed out on the Moire version I think this will be a definate purchase.

Swoosh there it is!

Pinocchio's specs.

Specs made from wood. There is something about products made from wood or wood effect that are quite captivating especially if they are not conventionally made from this natural material.

Little Dragon

I went to finally go see my friend Laura J martin perform live. She was incredible, a one man band, with an exciting creative take on performing and use of instruments in particular a vintage mandolin. All the beats made and produced by her. Her impersonation of Chaka Demus and Pliers Tease Me was prob the highlight.

She was performing just for a Swedish band took the stage. They went by the name Little Dragon and were incredible. One song that has gripped me and is on repeat is Twice. Quite a deep overwhelming feel to the sound, a similar effect the The Knife Heartbeats has on me.

Gone Fragile.

Michael Lau x MINDstyle Kuala Lumpur Exhibition

For Christmas I would like a teleporting machine so I can visit many events, that I miss as there are such far away places. The exhibiton takes place in Malaysia, a country I have visited when I was very young, I dont remember much apart from the beautiful white sand beach where we stayed near and the KFC, yup the Colonels Chicken, due to the fact it was the first place I tasted the Zinger Burger and Hot Wings. They came to the UK few years after.

Anyway as im an admirer of his vinyl toys I would have loved to of seen this. My favourite custom Box C figure, which is also the same for the flyer except he seems to of got him some new Stefan Janoski shoes :)

Big Boys Toys.

Mo shoes Mo purchases

My love for footwear is endless. It will continue forever! Even Forrest Gumps mum thinks that shoes are a very important statement to a persons character.

Jordan are having there 25th Anniversary very soon, and are releasing what seems all the shoes to date in pure white. Here are my favourites from the collection so far. The return of the Jordan VI i think will be very imminent next year, happy and sad all at the same time:

"Momma always says there's an awful lot you could tell about a person by their shoes. Where they're going. Where they've been. I've worn lots of shoes. I bet if i think real hard I could remember my first pair of shoes" Momma Gump

Louboutin sneakers

.....its not so much the sneaker but the shoe that I prefer that the man himself Christian is wearing, especially with tailored check pants. Pharell is rocking the sneaker which looks a pretty similar shape to the Lanvin ones recently released, they are fully studded.

Mr Louboutin anychance of a Freebi?
