Oooops... Friday already! The warm up for this weekend is yet another golden oldie, Shanks & Bigfoot with their hit from 1999, "Sweet like chocolate". This single had an enormous commercial breakthrough for the british garage scene which by then had rached their golden age with artists like Phats & Smalls, Artful Dodger and Armand van Helden among others. This song is still the biggest record the UK garage scene ever has produced.

Gloverall is recognized as the original duffle coat. With their heritage they have created an iconic status as one of the most respected British brands. Originally manufactured in the Belgian city Duffel, this type of coat got it's name. The coat soon became a success among the Brithish navy because of the toggle fastening which could be unfastened with thick gloves. Now Gloverall have teamed up with Japaneese brand Gauntlets which brings a premium bespoke Duffle coat. The stand out detail in this piece is the cross chest contrasting tie-string. I'm expecting a Gloverall delivery today or tomorrow- but stuck to the original, colour navy!

Constant reports about the economical crisis does not seems to bother the architectures at Graft or the craziest city in the world, Dubai. Vertical village is a residential, hotel and entertainment centre that is planned to support itself with solar energy. Well, good, a step towards a more sustainable living is a great idea... But, building a complete fantasy city in one of the worlds hottest places without taking nature in focus from the beginning must have been a raelly stupid mistake! I'm afraid we just have to wait until mother nature strikes back, or until they run out of oil.

As we speak Vagabond is shooting their SS10 campaign in the city centre of Paris, and just next to them cows and thousands of angry farmers demanding more money from the Government. Life in contradiction! Right now our team is next to the Eiffel Tower, so if you´re around go by and say hi! More backstage images will follow later...
