Considering that Halloween is my favorite holiday of the year, it's easy to see why I would love to have Boombox in NYC. If you want a mini tour with Agyness Deyn and Henry Holland, head to Style.com for their video clip.
I found these images on hannulelaurai's Myspace page, which induced fantasies of a futuristic themed party. Of course, London must be Nu Raved out with all of the neon splash going on at Boombox, but New York could use an injection of uber-colorful futuristic partying. Dancing to my grandparents' tunes at Beatrice Inn the other night just didn't groove me...my immune system has been fighting the retro bug for some time now.
The Swedes want to remind you that politics can be trendy. Swedish company, T-post, has given the ubiquitous tee a makeover by transforming it into a "wearable magazine."
As reported by FWD, "It's basically a subscription to a magazine, but instead of slick
publications, members receive inspiring current events printed on
American Apparel t-shirts.
The way it works is, every six weeks a t-shirt will arrive in the
mail that has some image or drawing on it to represent a hot topic in
the news. The drawings, designed by the T-post team, attempt to
represent an issue or concern happening in the world. Examples include
concerns about the Big Brother effect, water pollution issues,
altruism, gun control, or can even just be something funny overheard on
Inside each shirt is a narrative to represent the image on the
shirt. For example, the topic of the May issue is: "Man and machine, a
match made in…heaven?", a story that focuses on the topic of robots
becoming a part of our social environment. The front of the shirt
represents an idea of this dilemma, while inside an article discusses a
story based on intelligent robot's rights and responsibility as they
become part of society’s citizens."
