A cherubic limited edition collaboration in footwear form

We’ve seen Jeremy Scott lay his madness on several silhouettes for his adidas Originals collections, but this is the first time he’s collaborated on a modern basketball shoe. This time the LA designer teams up with Chicago Bulls superstar Derrick Rose for a unique spin on Rose’s signature adidas D Rose 3.5 sneaker. Taking the dollar-bill […]

A great excuse to be late to everything

A beautiful new iteration of The Infinity Piece “wristwatch” from Los Angeles designer Levi Maestro, this latest version is fashioned from 38mm Rose gold-plated stainless steel paired with a genuine stingray strap. We use quotes on “wristwatch” because the piece does not actually tell time — there is no movement whatsoever on the watch. Instead, it […]

An interesting but ultimately incomplete look at the most important art exhibit of 2011

We reviewed OUTSIDE IN: The Story Of Art In the Streets last summer when the film came out, and our take was that it was an interesting peak into the MOCA exhibit, but it was basically a fluff piece making all invested parties look good. Perhaps that was to be expected, but for a film […]

A vague, self-indulgent portrait of a pop icon

Ah, Serge. The type of sex God only France could create: gangly, skinny, big nose, bulging eyes, and looking like a cross between Mr. Burns and Roman Polanski with a lit cigarette hanging from his puffy lips. Despite his crazy appearance, Serge Gainsbourg wooed Brigitte Bardot and wedded Jane Birkin and had women all over […]

MOCA's controversial exhibit gets its own documentary

Madman Mundt The documentary, OUTSIDE IN is a sort of behind-the-scenes peek into the oh-so controversial Museum of Contemporary Arts (MOCA) exhibit Art In the Streets. We actually covered Art In the Streets fairly in depth when it opened, nevermind dealing with all the Blu controversy leading up to it [if you need a quick […]
