VOLVO OCEAN RACE PRIZE GIVING IN 30 POINTS
The rambling city of Sao Paulo is long gone now and we’re in Itajai for the Volvo Ocean Race stopover. Our first stop was the prize giving at some swanky joint. [[MORE]] 1. This place is a lot different than Sao Paulo, was told to dress fancy. 2. Oh so this is what they talk about when they talk about “beautiful Brazilian people.” 3. Where the food at? 4. Eating some fried...
PUMA SHOE MOSAIC
We just landed in Navengantes and are getting closer and closer to the Volvo Ocean classic in Itejai. Meanwhile, we visited the Puma store before we left and I was reunited with my long-lost favorite sneakers from my youth. The Puma Suedes in blue, my feet are home.
PUMA'S STATE OF PLAY
As you well know by now, I’m in Sao Paulo with Puma along with Simko, Josh, Travis, James and Justin. There are 2 reasons we’re here. The first is to document the Ocean Race in which Puma participates, which is happening later this week. The second, and more important, is to document the local culture and get a feel for the people the youth that live here. It’s all part of...
LIGHT AND DARK IN SAO PAULO CATHEDRAL
Gothic architecture is aggressive, dark, tall and at times ominous. That wasn’t by accident, especially in the case of religious architecture. Cathedrals, churches and other religious buildings stood not only as places of worship and business, but as a monument to the religion they served. The spires on the tallest towers reach higher to the kingdom of heaven (if you’re into that...
30 POINTS OF SAO PAULO, DAY 1
1. We’ve landed, I’m really ready to depart from these Swedish businessmen I’m sitting next to. 2. That was a fast check-in at customs, I like this country. 3. It feels like Jurassic Park here, weather wise, patiently waiting for Velociraptor noise so I can re-enact final scenes of movie. 4. They had really good food in Jurassic Park’s visitor center. 5. Sao Paulo is...
IEMANJA, BRAZILIAN SEA GODDESS
So we’ve been in São Paulo for one day and are about to peace out for day 2. I’ll share plenty of pictures etc. from the trip soon, but as promised here’s some of the Brazilian history I wanted to share. Brazil is similar to the U.S. in that it’s own culture is made up of many others—you know, the whole melting pot idea. That extends beyond the people and into all...
GOING TO BRAZIL, POSTING MAD STUFF.
This Sunday, I’m peacing out for Brazil with Puma, popular German sports brand named after the legendary cat. I’ll be shipping out with Simko, Josh, Travis, James and Chung. To keep with my usual style of posting, I’ll be taking a look at Brazilian literature, folklore and mythology which has proved to be pretty interesting. On top of that, I’ll be taking mad photos and...
PRADA FALL 2012
Currently on a train back home to New York. In a quick ode to that there video I made, here’s a gif of Prada Fall 2012. Prints on prints on prints makes Homer go something something. Note: these look much better if you view them here.
TRIPPING OUT WITH PRABAL GURUNG
Check it check it, Prabal Gurung just dropped his Spring 2012 video. The clip marries the Nobuyoshi Arkaki floral prints which served as inspiration with a writhing model—pretty sick. Also, see Prabal’s Fall collection in this handy animation thing I did:
ARYA STARK, GAME OF THRONES
Today, I’m continuing my adoration ofGame of Throneswith another character from the North. Arya Stark is Ned Stark’s youngest daughter and stands in stark contrast to his eldest, Sansa. Sansa is preoccupied with her girlish pursuites whereas tomboy Arya is more interested in swordplay and fighting. Her father encourages this and is very proud of her enthusiasm for warfare, he being a...
FASHION WEEK FALL 2012
Rise and shine kiddos. For the past few weeks, I’ve been working on this video. Last night, after 6 straight episodes of Game of Thrones, I finally finished. I took a few of my favorite fall 2012 collections and animated up right nice. They’re not necessarily my top collections from all over but they’re all great. Press play, hope you like it. 1. Derek Lam 2. Prabal Gurung ...
TREASURE HUNTED WITH MR. PORTER
A couple weeks ago, I had just returned home from vacation. After passing out post travel at about 9:30 on Saturday night, I woke up at 7:30 on Sunday morning. With most of the city still asleep, there wasn’t much I could do to entertain myself, until I remembered Mr. Porter’s treasure hunt with the Gold Run iPhone app. So I showered up and headed out. [[MORE]] When you load up the...
WHAT WOULD LADY STARK WEAR
While the rest of the world was fixed on the premiere of Mad Men last night and whistling “Zou Bisou Bisou” this morning, I find myself more excited for the return of Game of Thrones on HBO. So much so, that I figured there would be no better time to post on a few of the characters. Let’s begin with the HBIC of the North, Lady Stark. As we left season 1, she was a recent widow...
