Sagmeister x Levi’s + American Rag = Window Displays

sagmeister-levis

This is an interesting collaboration that I am too lazy to explain on my own. Here are some bullet points from the press release…

  • Sagmeister has developed a series of designs that explore the jean that started it all – the Levi’s Original, Button-Fly 501
  • The installation will unveil the first two Sagmeister images from the special art series created for the Levi’s
  • Levi’s brand and American Rag stores in Los Angeles and San Francisco will distribute a limited run of 501 museum-quality, poster reproductions of the Sagmeister images featured in American Rag’s windows this March.
  • Sagmeister took Levi’s Original button-fly 501 and examined its origin and mystique, literally stripping the iconic silhouette down to the raw materials that compose its DNA. “The jeans themselves are iconic, so we decided to go with just a product shot, using nothing more and nothing less than a single pair of 501s,” Stefan explains.

street-level

Aol introduced a hip new cutting-edge blag today…

“Welcome to StreetLevel. This is a site for guys who are into things and stuff not because they’re mindless consumers or brainwashed followers, but because they are avid collectors, discerning connoisseurs and trendsetters with impeccable taste. We will inform and enlighten you about fashion, sneakers, cars, games, toys, gadgets, art, film and all other passions of the grown-ass kid.

This is your site, so we want you to put us up on things too. Users will get to report on local trends as well as submit pics and other content to show the world how you get fly in your neck of the woods. We’re hip-hop heads, sneaker fiends, gear addicts, art enthusiasts, sports fanatics and comic book nerds. We will serve you well because we’re cut from the same cloth. This is StreetLevel.com. Welcome home.”

Now, I’m sure the Aol brass put the Editor up to making such horrible words come to life but seriously… “This is a site for guys who are into things and stuff”


Reminisce Over This

Beenie Man, Who Am I, 1998

Notte Sento

Notte Sento is a short film made with 4500+ still photographs.

“A girl misses her train to Milan and is set to wait overnight in Rome until dawn. However, a chance encounter with a guy changes her plans and the night lights of the capital turn into the background to a tender love story. An extraordinary chemistry made of knowing glances and small gestures fills the few instants that separate them both from the sunrise.”

Lunchtime Laughter

As the NCAA tournament kicks into gear today, this video by Peter Rosenberg always makes me laugh.  Duke can get the dills forever, and although the Terps don’t have a shot in hell this year, they get 100% of my support.
