Fashion | MCM Stark Chevron backpack [@mcmtweets]

MCM is certainly my favourite leather fashion  brand, and their 2018 Winter collection, has not disappointed me. This is a new version of the much loved STARK backpack.

Teaming Visetos coated canvas and nappa leather, this style contrasts this season’s vibrant Chevron motif with a monochrome base to impressive effect. Premium mesh material at the back boosts comfort and breathability, while a total of three pockets – as well as an internal laptop sleeve – offer secure storage for all your essentials.

Bag size dimensions

  • 41 x 33 x 15 cm
  • Leather top handle
  • Adjustable shoulder straps
  • Front zipped pocket
  • Cotton twill lining

This backpack is available directly from the MCM website, and MCM flagship store in London.

Music Video | YoMenza feat EazyMan – Tripple OG’s [ @yomenza ]

South London natives YoMenza & EazyMan have linked up to bring you a fresh U.K. street banger, “Tripple OGs”. The track it self, is solid, no mumble raps on this track, just the raw U.K. hip hop as we appreciate. The visuals for this track was filmed in our home town of Croydon, and the creative on this video is a release from all the same old videos with booty shaking and no story telling content.

Security | A Nike Sportwear box, that is a safe!!

We’ve all used shoe boxes to store the detritus of our daily lives, whether it’s old letters, photos or random objects with sentimental value. And even though they’re the perfect size, we typically don’t store valuables in our old shoe boxes, primarily because they just don’t offer anything in the way of security. That all changes with the Mandem Safe, which for all intents and purposes appears to be a standard cardboard Nike shoe box, but is instead built with 5mm folded steel with a cam lock and pre-drilled holes at the base, allowing you to screw down the box directly onto the floor. It’s currently in the prototype phase, so go to to sign up for updates.the-mandem-safe-2

Music | Stormzy – Standard

So I wake up, check my instagram feed, and I see Stormzy has posted a picture of #standard trending world wide, so it was only right to see what #standard was about…….OH SHIT! Stormzy returns with another banger, obviously replying to anyone’s comments regarding his latest Mobo award wins, and clarifying to the world what is Standard, for him to do. The track is produced by the power team that is The Trackerz, and the my favourite line from this track for me has to be

“Man wanna talk about views on a fire in the booth, check my views on fire in the park”

If you don’t realise who he is sending for by this point in the track, then do like 100,000 people have done by this time of me posting this, listen again. I can see everyone Dabbing to this over the weekend!!!

Fashion | Air Jordan Future releasing 15.03.14

The almighty, success driven Jordan brand has done it again, they are bring us what they call “Future” or rightly named, Air Jordan Future. Now I’ll be honest, the first images of this sneaker, had me like no way, I don’t like that. But now that the brand has released official images prior to it’s March 15th release, I have to say, my opinion has changed dramatically. This is a luxury looking sneaker, and a fine looking one at that. The Jumpman brand have done away with a leather upper for this sneaker, and have given it the woven material treatment. They say that this creation is “symbiotic relationship between the court and the street”. The Future silhouette is designed with an Air Jordan XI sole with a chukka style upper, complete with an asymmetrical lace-up system.

Jordan Brand’s description of the sneaker says:

With a carbon fiber plate and full-length air outsole, the Jordan Future offers lightweight comfort and cushioning. Enhancing the minimalist nature of the shoe, the deconstructed upper foregoes a heel counter and toe enforcer. The asymmetrical lacing reduces pressure across the top of the foot, while the suede interior and ankle collar enhance comfort.

The release date for the Jordan Future is Saturday 15th March, and the colour ways they have shown us are that of the Black / Glow OR Black/ Infrared version. In my opinion, I will purchase one for sure, something different and as the name says, it’s looking ahead to the Future, not trying to recreate the OG colourways and designs that so many sneaker heads would like to see protected, and remain as classics with no re-productions.

INTERVIEW x Jasmine Dominique

On a brisk winter afternoon, we met up with photographer and artist Jasmine Dominique, to get a insight as to what makes her tick creatively.

What made you pursue the creative side of Photography & Art?

I know it’s a cliché thing to say but I’ve been creative my whole life, since I can remember. I’ve drawn all the time since I was small and always just experimented and tried things out because it’s just something that I’ve continued to enjoy throughout life.

If there is a reason for me continuing to ‘pursue’ being creative it’s just because being creative enables me to express different parts of myself and it’s the only thing that will always be there and always just make me feel like the best version of myself, and because it’s just something that I have an unexplainable passion for, and when you’re genuinely passionate about something you’ll chase it forever, especially if it’s origin is mysterious to you.

Where do you get your creative influences from?

I’m influenced by loads of stuff really. If I think initial influences, my family and background have influenced me a lot. My Nana and Granddad on my Mum’s side both used to travel all over the world teaching and were both interested in culture and history etc.  My Nana was also an archaeologist and went to Egypt when I was really small so I’ve been obsessed with Ancient Egypt since I was 2, that comes out a lot in my drawings and other elements of my creative work.

Also, my Mum has always been crazy and creative, although art has been more of a hobby for her than a career path, but she has definitely influenced me a tonne throughout my life, in every way possible. Again cliché but I don’t give a fuck, my mum is actually the best person in the world. Sorry

Who & What inspires you?

Everything is inspiration. Life inspires me. Books inspire me. My family inspire me. People inspire me a lot, I’m always reading up about people and researching how they got to where they are, what influenced them, taking notes of their style whether it’s film, music, art, whatever.

Recently I’ve mainly been reading Machiavelli, but then also reading Angelina Jolie’s book about her UN work, so I get inspiration from all kinds of things and people. Obviously my interests like art, music, culture, fashion, film is a huge inspiration and one of the things inspiring me most at the moment along with music, politics, history, travel. I’m a big person for lifestyle and experiences and chance so I think everything however big or small counts towards what goes into your work.

Who would you like to Collaborate with creatively?

I’ve actually never thought of whom I would collaborate with if I could. I have no idea. There are so many possibilities for collaboration. Obviously if it was possible Id work with Sergio Leone. We have the same birthday so it was clearly meant to be, in another universe. I’d like to work with Insa, I’m big on graffiti because it was the biggest influence of mine when I first started getting serious about art in my teens, Miss Van & Fafi also big influences because I draw girls. I’d like to work maybe with David Lachapelle or Tim Walker photography wise, or maybe Rankin? Although as much as I like the flawless outrageous fashion editorial style I’m also big on gritty, dark images, derelict locations, anything that’s just falling apart.

Is there an Artist or Entertainer you would like to photograph?

There is a lot of people Id like to take photos of. Angelina Jolie (who wouldn’t) , Clint Eastwood (obviously) and other stars like Al Fucking Pacino, Bruce Willis, Eli Wallach, too many to name but it would be sick just to use photographing them as an excuse to just have a chat with them about more interesting stuff.

I’d like to photograph Courtney Love, M.I.A., Azealia Banks, EVERYONE Come to mine and let’s party, also Zomby just to find out who he is!

What do you keep in your Photography Kit bag?

I don’t even have a photography kit bag, as I’m not a proper girly girl with handbags. My camera goes in my backpack with all the other stuff. I currently use a Canon 7D MK2 with the kit 18-135mm USM Zoom lens.

Anyone you would like to big up?

My Mum, for her constant support, and inspiration, Sadek & Miranda.

Where can we find your work, and more information about you?
