It was in the news the other day about a Tornado of Tie Dye that sprung through the streets of London, do you remember hearing about that? Okay well no seriously, Cassette Playa has released their Spring/Summer 2008 collection Future Primitive, and it looks like a Tornado of Tie Dye! They called it the 'New Rave' in London, though I do not think its hit LA yet, but I love the originality nonetheless, and I love Cassette Playa!

Rocksmith and Undrcrwn collabed to create this Keep Bouncin Tee. They combinded their love for music, basketball (Jordan) and also inspiration from A Tribe Called Quest's early album cover to template the shirts design. I could have sworn this shirt dropped already, but I could be loosing it, it's now available at The Fizix.

Weeks ago Shepard Fairey dropped his Obama print, and now together with Upper Playground and The 008, there will be shirts as well. The shirts are set to drop for $25 and will come in two versions, for sizes in both buys and girls. All proceeds will go to printing more tees, and stickers to support Obama. This is mos def a mark in history, this shirt represents more than just a OBEY image. Name another presidential canidate that received this much love besides Kennedy? My point exactly, cope one and pass it down to your children, remember this movement.


This is amazing!

Boosted Films Present: Renta!

When Los Angeles-based graffiti artist RETNA's work first appeared in the mid-nineties, what made it stand apart from the rest was its unique layering. His color palette was so intricate, so carefully chosen, his pieces often looked to have been daubed on with a paint-brush. Quite the achievement when you consider he was painting on walls, trains, bridges, and freeway overpasses in the black of night.Frequently inspired by images of females found in magazines and corporate advertisements, RETNA is especially known for embellishing existing fashion advertisements overlaying a classic style that recalls Mayan and Egyptian hieroglyphs, and even Byzantine religious mosaics.
