DIFFERENT WORLD [THE FREEDMINDS]

8 Feb

THE FREEDMINDS COLLECTIVE IS NICE WITH THE TEE GAME. ACTUALLY THEYRE KINDA NICE WITH EVERYTHING THEY DO. THEIR BRANDING IS FLAWLESS. I ADMIRE THE AESTHETIC OF THE ART DIRECTION TOO, LOW BROW YET REFINED WITHOUT COMING OFF AS OVERWORKED OR BOURGEOIS.  THIS IS ONE OF THE YOUNG BRANDS I’D LIKE TO SEE HAVE SOME LONGEVITY. ALL AND ALL I RESPECT HOW THEY GET DOWN IN THE CREATIVE SENSE. THE TEE IS HAND ILLUSTRATED BY ARTIST SUSAN WU.

Trip Like a Lady………

5 Aug

Lady Tripper aka Miss Jack Davey is as supremely badass as supreme badassness gets. I fell in love with her musicality by way of J Davey and then I fell in love with her personal style and guerilla fashion photo shoots by way of her blog. As a woman who appreciates a  woman who dresses to express (and by express I mean showcase her femininity in a way that is self-centered, socially neglegent, idividualistically gorgeous, and uniquely her own) her sensibilities with regards to what she wears and how she wears it blows my mind. As the name suggests, her new clothing and accessory line LadyTripper does too. In a very, very, very, good way………….

LIONHEARTED

15 Jun

Fierce: menacingly wild, savage or hostile; violent in force or intensity; furiously eager or intense; extremely bad or severe.

Fierceness, in my opinion, is a quality reserved for women who roar. Jamaican fashion designer Mamayashi would be one of those women. I first came across her fotki album during a web surfing session in 2007 or 2008. For a while, I couldn’t remember her name, but I couldn’t get her clothes out of my head. I finally found her page again not too long ago and made sure to link promptly and properly.  Not only do her clothes compliment the female frame exsquisitely, but they are created from an idealistic and unique point of reference. The influence of her Rastafarian faith and Jamaican heritage is the most striking element to her beautiful pieces. Flowing skirts and halter tops are adorned with inspired images and words like those of visionary revolutionist’s Che Guavera and Marcus Garvey. Tube dresses declare “The righteous man time has come.” Nearly every piece in her catalogue bears a symbolism of strength and grace, from lion heads, which are the most prominent  symbol in her work, to a print of a bare-breasted woman sprouting from the ground like a cypress with the word “RISE” right below her roots. Other favorites from her collections include curve hugging carribean technicolor dresses embellished with marijuana leaves. There’s really nothing sexier than sexy that has some grit to it. Shop Mamayashi here and here. Link up here and here
