As you know I have a cold, a little bit of fever and a whole lot of clogged nose and it feels like I have the worst infection ever. But I am just being a little pussy drinking tea all day and staying in bed. And I am happy for everything that makes me feel healthy (even if it’s just for a minute or two). And actually and this is a true story when I saw8CUFF‘s eyecatching FW14 collection I was able to breathe without a clogged nose for about 5 minutes.
8CUFF is a menswear brand based in Hong Kong and Shanghai, the label is targeting sport-lux street wear brand, inspired by social issues. Sue Suh of 8CUFF chose the graphic novel “Watchmen” to explore her collection. Watchmen is unique within the genre for portrayal of immoral antiheroes. Sue believes that the good and the bad inevitably coexist in our lives ans so she interpreted her thoughts and views on this matter in the design of the graphic prints.
Suh creates uncompromising visuals from found images and her own paintings on the subject corruption. Structured symmetrical shapes from the spots-lux street wear collection with emphases on strong features including the usage of neoprene, leather, and techno-textiles, in jackets that utilize innovative construction techniques so that they hold their own exaggerated proportions around and above the body. All this neoprene and the digital print is so dope. I wish I could have it. Thank you for making me feel healthy. And I swear I can breathe again right now. This collection is working for me and has healing powers!!!
I have so much shit to do like uni-wise, but at the same time I am bored as fuck. The only thing that is making things interesting now is looking for new brands and labels. And do you know that moment when you see a fashion piece or accessory and you really really really wanna have it? Like super bad. And your bank account is basically saying: hell fucking no! That’s like the story of my life.
Same shit with this super cool heat reactive coin purse made byNewUltraGroup. This purse changes from black when cold, through to a spectrum of colours when touched, reacting to body heat and sunshine immediately. How fucking dope is this?! This bag making company founded by Rike Detscher and Sarah Hartnett has one of the most innovative and stylish (wow I haven’t used this word in like forever. I feel weird now…) bags you’ve seen in a long time. Turst me!
And if these dope bags aren’t enough Newultra.net operates as an active image and video diary in relation to the bran, constantly refeshed and updated. This is just world domination behaviour! This brand and their products have so much potential. And if you think this heat reactive purse is everything you need in life, you should def check out their homepage and shop. Dope stuff I’m telling y’all! DOPE STUFF!
