Jump or Play?

                                              




Loads of people were asking me where I got the jumpsuit I wore to the Factor 50 rooftop party in Barcelona. It's actually a wee retro number I got from Circa Vintage on Ruthven Lane in Glasgow for only £10. It originally had long wide trouser legs but I decided to cut them off to make them a bit more wearable.

Ted Noten - GUN


Designed by Dutch artist Ted Noten 'Chanel 001' and 'Dior 001' are actually makeup kits. They come with lipstick, hair pin, perfume, USB port and even a pill of Viagra. 

Both makeup kits are made from 3D printed nylon. They are both on display at the Ornamentum gallery in Switzerland.

The perfect weapon to point at any girl asking to borrow your lipstick on a night out! Bang, you're dead.

Off Sonar 2011

First post in 3 months!

Been away in Barcelona soakin up some sunshine at Sonar. This was my 4th trip to the music festival and I think it was the best one yet. I didn't hit up Sonar but did all the Off Sonar parties instead. Highlights included the Sensu Factor 50 roof party at the Hotel Axel which we did with Thunder Disco Club and Athletic Disco Club, also the RA party at the Hotel Diagonal, RA X party with secret guest DJ Harvey, Secret Sundaze party at La Terrazza and lastly the Minus showcase on El Prat beach.

Partied all day and night, came home skint.

Here's a video from the Minus showcase. Spot me dancing on Ervin's shoulders at the front. Ha!

'Horsey' by Eungi Kim

designer's own words:
'horsey' is an attachable bicycle ornament/accessory which makes one's bicycle look horsey!
the 'horsey' package includes wooden ornaments (horsey shape body), metal parts, and screws.
the manual is very simple so that anyone can easily arrange it according to one’s needs.
through this 'horsey' project. I wanted to give a special look to bicycles so that people would care
about cycling not only as transportation but also as a lovely pet.




Eungi Kim was shortlisted for the Seoul cycle design competition 2010 in association with http://www.designboom.com/eng/

RICARDO VILLALOBOS @ SENSU

Next Friday 4th March the Sub Club will be playing host to RICARDO VILLALOBOS. Needless to say the event sold out in record time. Unfortunately the wee Sub can't hold the 1000+ people that wanted tickets but for those lucky enough to get a ticket, this night is going to be very special.

FASHION MAVERICKS - OBSCURE COUTURE

Fashion Mavericks is an event which aims to showcase and introduce new & independent designers. This new exciting event takes place every season during London Fashion Week; one of the most busiest times of the fashion calendar. The event showcases the work of talented creative designers who offer fresh, new and independent designs and surely destined to take the world by storm.


This year, my friends Lyndsay Pagan and Jenn Celine Coyle of  'OBSCURE COUTURE ' were there showcasing their collection FLESH & BONE. Glasgow should be very proud of these girls, I can see very big things happening for them in the future.

The Obscure Couture collection will be showing at the 'Pyuupiru' fashion and film event this Friday at the CCA in Glasgow. 

TOPSHOP UNIQUE AW11

I'm so inspired by Topshop's SS 11 range for the next coming months. But I have to say I'm not that impressed with the AW 11 collection.

The collection was inspired by 1930's elegance and Disney's '101 Dalmations'. I do like some of the looks but I could do without the faux dalmatian fabric. Check these out from the 2011 AW show that was on this LFW.

Still undecided on the puppy dog hair styling! Thoughts?

Love the dalmation nails.

PYUUPIRU

This Friday myself and Claire Stuart's events company 'In the Company of Wolves' are producing a fashion catwalk show to help launch the film screening of 'Pyuupiru' at the Glasgow Film Festival.

Tickets have now sold out for the film and catwalk show but it is possible to get on the guestlist for the afterparty with guest DJ Pam Hogg. Just email events@glasgowfilm.org for your chance to gain access to this exclusive event.



Pyuupiru is one of the brightest stars of the Japanese art scene, renowned for eye-popping handmade costumes and being a work of art in her own right. Director Daishi Matsunaga is an old friend who has captured every moment of Pyuupiru’s rise to fame from first highheeled strut in the coolest clubs in Japan to cult status. The trust of friendship is behind an extraordinary documentary that provides a fascinating insight into the private life of Pyuupiru. Born a boy, she decided that that her true gender was female. The emotional and physical upheavals of becoming herself, finding love and seeking acceptance are all revealed in a fascinating portrait of an artist as both creator and creation.

Director: Daishi Matsunaga
Year: 2008
Running Time: 1h 33m
Country: Japan

Language: Japanese with subtitles
