Forest Fashion for the Big City

j-crew-concrete-jungle

As Fall approaches and the leaves begin to turn, there is an inevitable call from the mountains and countryside, beckoning us for one last visit into their relatively unspoiled landscapes. In the days before the fitness-fashion craze, those who entered the woods dressed to match the surroundings. All shades of greens and browns were welcome, with some safety orange thrown in so that you if you ventured off of the trail, you weren’t mistaken for a deer. The new J.Crew x New Balance 998 “Concrete Jungle” is a sneaker for those who don’t have time to leave the pavement anymore, but still remember what it was like to spend a day with the dirt, just blending in.

Available at select J. Crew stores today (9/13), and online on September 17th.

Somehow I imagined a better fitting suit. Oh well, you gotta start somewhere. Next up, Opening Ceremony x The Whitney… probably not, but at this point in culture, anything’s possible.

The Ring Fortress of Bluetooth…

viking-ring-fortress

Or Forkbeard, depending on which historian you ask. Regardless, a ring fortress dating back to the late tenth century and attributed to the Vikings was recently discovered on the Danish island of Zealand, some 30 miles off the coast of Denmark. Measuring 475 feet in diameter, and featuring “a 35-foot wide circular rampart surrounded by a palisade of wooden spikes,” it is the fifth ring fortress to be unearthed, all unique to Denmark.

Is this video art? Is this advertising? Is this a music video film? These are the questions that went through my head as I watched this entire video by Dr. Romanelli, featuring highlights from British Knights advertising history. Accompanied by a soundtrack created by Alchemist, Samiyam and Action Bronson, British Knights: Which Ways The Beach Mix, as it’s officially known is a hypnotic journey through a world of bygone creativity… and it’s really fucking good.
