Mick & Keith

Circa 1970.

Vamp it.

Hedi Slimane photographs Robert Pattinson Guilty: I read cheesy teenage vampire romance novels. And I thoroughly enjoyed the whole series. I tend to prefer Jacob Black over the main vamp Pattinson, maybe it's the underdog thing. But as much as I love fantasy creatures in general -- especially when they involve Slimane -- the photoshoot doesn't quite capture "vampire-chic" like Jean-Baptiste Mondino (Below - photographed by Mondino, 2006):

Barker Black Archdale Wing-Tips

Since I can no longer wear sneakers at the office, I have a strong craving for wing-tip shoes. And since I cannot afford nor fit expensive luxury menswear, I can only drool over these rad Barker Blacks. (Skull & crossbones broguing on the toe? Ohh, they're just beautiful.)

Varvatos: 315 Bowery

A couple of weeks ago I was in NYC & meandered into John Varvatos' store on 315 Bowery. I loved it. It felt like walking into a rock band's dressing room -- minus the drugs & groupies. My fantasy closet. (The video emphasizes Varvatos' work w/ Converse, but there's also some good shots of the former CBGBs-punk-club-turned-Varvatos store.)

David Bowie - "Heroes"

Not much to the video, but it's a fantastic song. It's been re-made a bit (i.e. The Wallflowers, & Ewan McGreggor in 'Moulin Rouge') -- but Bowie's rocks hardest. Vive la glam!

Banksy

Some of his more recent work -- in London. Reminds me of ARTH 101 (Napoleon). Meets Mask de Zorro. Zebra sans stripes (Mali, Africa).
