DUSEN DUSEN

In Plaid on 04/25/2010 at 6:34 PM

Dusen Dusen is a Brooklyn based brand that is so sweet it might as well be served on a wafer cone. Every season Ellen Van Dusen looks through her round sunnies and throws a dart at her music festivals map. The Dusen Dusen S/S 10 collection of graphic prints, cropped tops and acid-wash denim is the staple line for the kids with the neon wristbands and 60’s haircuts. Dusen Dusen is with the band.

PINK COBRA

In Plaid on 04/14/2010 at 10:34 PM

Pink Cobra has a typeface of thick strokes. Tania Martins is the dominatrix of fashion behind the hip fashion brand Pink Cobra. In the F/W 2010 collection the brand morphs classics into it-items, and the outcome is a contemporary LBD that is just as basic as Daisy Lowe’s outrageous outfits. Martin manages to give her clothes a subtle edge of  an unrefined style. The brand’s bold vision and cunning approach is reminiscent of a Charlotte Gainsbourg song, sans le french accent et le cigarette smoke. Pink Cobra is a gunmetal fist in a leather glove. Pull the trigger.

Mixed Tapes: Neon Indian

In Mixed Tapes on 04/10/2010 at 11:38 PM

Psychic Chasms is an intense vivid color swirling abstract pattern. Neon Indian’s debut LP sonorous imagery translates into lyrical hallucinations. Alan Palomo, also known for his work with Ghosthustler and as the artist Vega, is the artist behind the Austin band.  Neon Indian started as a careless outlet for ideas too offbeat to fit the vega mold, but has since gone on to define a genre.  “Sleep Paralysist” and  “6669 (I Don’t Know If You Know)”  are usually prescribed for expansion of consciousness. WARNING: Do Not Operate Heavy Machinery, Motor Vehicle or call your EX While Listening To This Album.

WHYRED

“Clean living under difficult circumstances” represents the Whyred philosophy. Whyred’s Inspiration is always drawn from the music and art scene, and in this case from The Who’s manager, Pete Meaden. The Swedish brand has kept faithful to the simplicity of postmodern aesthetics. The SS10 collection is the definition of the neo-minimalistic look, with a clean and modern impression striking a chord to a 90’s fashion revival. Blow the dust of your “Nevermind” album and come as you are.
