I just had the pleasure to meet the guys over at lifetime collective yesterday as part of a project I am working on, and I have to say I was super stoked to hang and get to know these guys a little bit, super inspiring group of individuals, who are all very talented! I got a sneak peak at next years line, and I have to say I’m pretty damn impressed!
The process is as important as the product. Our clothing is inspired by the communities we live in, the places we travel to, and the people that surround us. While based in Vancouver, Canada, Lifetime exists as part of a much larger international movement to promote the passion and creativity long-driven by artists, musicians, skateboarders, snowboarders and free-thinkers of all sorts.
Also check out the beautifully done film for the 2010 line coming out by motion picture collective Salazar after the jump, you’ll be impressed!
I just picked up the new issue of Wallpaper today that features two guest editors; Philippe Starck and Karl Lagerfeld. Each editor was given 27 pages to do what the like. On the very last page of Philippe Starck’s section is a promotion for a soundtrack composed and mixed by Soundwalk. What’s unique about this mix is it’s a 24 hour mix that is streaming online as well as in a accompanying iPhone app. So this means that when you press play, the mix will start from the exact time it is in your current time zone not matter where you are in the world. You can listen to the mix on the Wallpaper.com, or Starck.com and you can download the app in the iTunes store, just search for “24 Hour Starck Mix”. Make sure to check it out soon because the mix will only be available until the end of the month!
Photographer Josef Hoflehner has a new book out title Jet Airliner. The book is a series of black and white photos shot on Maho Beach right under the Princess Juliana International Airport in St. Maarten, Dutch West Indies. The photos are extremely breathtaking and I couldn’t imagine being at that beach, let alone how loud it would be! (via iconology).
Check out some photos after the jump as well as a few videos of planes landing at the airport!
This is how it breaks down; New York times has a magazine called T Magazine, T Magazine has a blog called The Moment, and The Moment has a column called “Photos of the Moment” and that is what the post is about. Photos of the Moment document all of the behind-the-scenes details at the major fashion shows around the world. The most recent show’s have been shot by photography duo Sofia Sanchez and Mauro Mongiello and I grabbed a collection of my favorite shots that you can check out after the jump. Although the photos are not that big in size, they are very captivating and they really give you an inside look into what’s going on and who’s in attendance at these big fashion shows.
Dave Mavro came through with a second batch of photos from the Frankfurt Auto Show. Click below to see them all.

On average I get 2-3 photos of cars per day from Dave Mavro, usually spotted around LA. Last week I got a whole batch of them from Frankfurt, where Dave was attending the auto show, and far be it from me to keep them to myself. Click below to see them all. Thanks Mavro.

Right before Nuno, Andrew and I headed to Vegas for Interbike, we got an email from Amy at Fuse Marketing inviting us to a dinner at Nobu with Nigel Sylvester and some of the guys from Gatorade. The dinner was to celebrate Nigle’s new videos series with Gatorade “Because I Grind”. Unfortunately Nuno had prior plans that night, but Andrew and I headed to Nobu and had an amazing night!
At the dinner was Glenn PP and Mark Losey, who worked on the series with Nigel, Lauren and Kenny from Gatorade, Amy from Fuse, Frank 151, Maestro Knows, and Jeff Carvalho from Highsnob/Selectism! In addition to an amazing dinner with some great people, we got to see a preview of the Because I Grind series and they also hooked everyone up with an iPod touch loaded up with the whole series!! After the dinner we all piled into some hried Escelades and headed to the House of Blues for the NORA cup!
Huge thanks to Nigel for being awesome, Lauren and Kenny from Gatorade and Amy for inviting us to the dinner! The Because I Grind series drops on October 12th, so keep a look out for the videos on Defgrip and check out some photos from the night after the jump!
Photographer André Paul Pinces shot a rad photo series called Dashed Dreams for Know?Mag. The series is great, although I’m not sure who’s driving a Porsche with dice in the mirror on the platform of the 18th street station… haha. Check out some of the photos after the jump. (via iconology)
Here’s the final promo for the Nike 6.0 Tunnel Jam. If you haven’t figured it out yet, the Tunnel Jam is a contest in a tunnel with a bunch of amazing riders on a seriously crazy ramp setup. Keep reading to check out a shot of the ramps and the video.
Art and Sole is a group art show that opens tonight (Saturday, October 3rd) at El Kartel in Vancouver in conjunction with PF Flyers. The concept for the show was to take a pair of PF Flyers Center Hi’s and do whatever you want with them, resulting in some extremely creative and very different results. To go along with the project is a book showcasing each artist and the shoe they created. The book will be distributed all over to different PF Flyers retailers and it will also be available at the opening tonight.
Continue reading to check out a bunch of images of the shoes (including a pair I did!) and if you are in Vancouver, make sure to make it to the opening at El Kartel!
While we were in Las Vegas for Interbike last week, Andrew and I initiated a little photo series. The idea was to seek out as many random patters as we could find in anything from cars to floors to candy and snap a photo of them. Together we came up with about 50 different images and I know that if we were on our game the whole trip, we could have captured hundreds more. Vegas is an interesting place and even though, at a glance, many people find it ugly and gaudy, there is some beauty tucked away in random places.
