Things always seem clearer on hind-sight, and looking back at the past month, it sure seems like i've caught up on quite a couple stuff i've been wanting to do. Could it be that i'm actually fufilling my resolutions?

Took a trip, on the wet side...
Couple of folks decided to charter a small yacht to relax as a reward from work. Its been a while since i last took to the sea, sure miss the salty spray

S2C Shizuoka tee, CDG x FP, Visvim eiger's
Nothing i like more than some quiet solitude followed by some excellent traditional chinese lunch

visited the Museum...
and the Egyptian mummy exhibit, learned the value of having a well-informed guide.

...and such a joy to enjoy the weekend afternoon with the gf

had a the rain

electric cottage|lvc|nike free woven
This was me buying the groceries before (changing and) heading to the beach for a barbie to celebrate a mate's birthday. And if you thought a bbq in the rain is a rarity here in the sunny island, its happened to me twice before already...haha

S2C x Kostas|visvim eiger's|NB x Hanon
all in, a pretty fruitful month i must say! :)


Supreme motion-logo tee | Jil Sander tie
Its such a must-get when Supreme released the retro "motion-logo" print. I still have the old namecard that had the OG print, which kick-started my interest for the brand. Also copped a Jil skinny tie to complete a formal look work-wise.

Bapesta pro-wrestling Zepp tour tee
Loved the iconic red camo (and since i couldn't afford anything red camo just 2 years ago), couldn't pass up a steal (as always for me)

Visvim Skagway Sami
Somewhat similar in colorway to the adidas x porter nizza high in my earlier post, but trust me, this pair is different past the colorway. Full pony-hair upper and tongue, that extends beyond to the toe-cap, this pair is one exquisite add to the visvim vault. I've gotten advice on the irrepressible tongue that seems to have a life of its own, and how the upper will get worn out, but i'll take a risk on all that!

Converse x Dr Romanelli
Not sure why, but feeling hi-cuts lately. Been eyeing this pair for sometime, really drawn in by the "eye-popping" graphics and interesting upper details of bandages all-over by the good "doctor". The inner lining canvas features graphics images of the anatomy, as well as on the see-thru outsole. Gonna be a hoot rocking this in the hot summer's day, heh heh

always been a big fan of Hardy Blechman's Maharishi label and DPM innovations. and being the completist, i managed to piece together a couple more from the maharishi x michael lau collaborative exhibition

Maharishi x Michael Lau 103 GardenerGala
Possibly the first poster i'll ever put up on the wall of my future home is Michael Lau's GardenerGala. This one is exclusive to the Maharishi London exhibition with the addition of the Blechman figure to make up 103 figures

Maharishi x Michael Lau "103" No War tee
And of course i have to cop the accompanying event tee. Not only to complete the exhibit range, but also Michael's anti-Iraq war that includes a collab tee print he did for Levi's (yeah, geeky i know)

brings to mind Eddie Vedder's (yet another of my heroes) heartfelt rendition of "No More"

oh, and last bit of bonus Maharishi memorabilia to hold on to...

Maharishi x Medicom Fabrick
just coz it would be cute to have this cute bugger sit in the corner of the room...and since i already have the bedroom slippers from the range (oops..hahaha)

oh kate oh kate oh kate...

"..i would be glad to..."

Natasha Poly...icy-cool hotness

on the topic of uber models...

the yummy Jac...

...and a middle finger salute to the passing of the great svegali that was Malcolm Maclaren

...always be missed

...stuff i'm liking...

aka, which i can't afford...

Pretty much liking how stussy's handling their 30th the XXV, just bigger and cooler somehow :)

those supreme ones are already blowing up ebay as usual, they sure know how to choose the killer designs...if any kind soul(all 5 of you guys reading this) could help pick up some size L's, it would be lovely (the brotherly kind)

wish someone can also clue me in on how to cop these jamhomemade ones too...i always love the remixing of ol' fonts and "stussy-sayings"

other than the visvim x supreme collab, this one's like the next hype 1-2 collab to get. but the $325 question has got to be, how much will it cost?
a little gore for a summer blockbuster?
this one's a definite contender for shoe of the year and probably past few seasons
very impressed with how its been put together by the Jap designers (rest of world designers, you guys learn anything yet?), and look so effortless and well thought-out

MTG580 MA1
don't know about you, but i seriously need more olives, grayscale and safety orange (wow, remember the first time the safety orange colorway first popped up? it was the birth of hypedom as we knew it)

MTG580 B3
the attention to detail is astounding, the pull-up leather, the woolen collar lining, the colorscale. this pack is beyond the usual "think of a theme and throw everything on it like a sneaker customizer would do it" standard; this is top notch designwork, something not seen since...hmm, the crookedtongues "confederacy of villany" pack? thank heavens these ones' are more available (relatively of course)
bell & ross

i've been a good boy (so far), i just want x'mas to come (early)? please? :)
sighs...its not as if i'm anywhere near owning the BR01, but this pair is just sick, i'm gonna have to change targets from the looks of it...
