My last post…..on here anyways

17 Apr

Well yeah, the title is pretty self-explanatory to say the least, but I have come to terms with that I am unable to maintain various social networks that I used to be a big part of. This blog, started when I was 11, I feel never was properly utilised for what I could have done with it, and now being 16 and focusing on school and other stuff I never find the time to blog anymore. Same really applies to my DeviantART, website (isamazing.co.uk) and other various things like that. And in an attempt to streamline my time and try and collect all my social networks to just a few, I am saying fairwell to my blog. 5 years is a long time to have a blog I’d say, and it’s been really good (when I’ve actually been posting). I’m hoping that wordpress.com keep it online for at least a few years as an archive kinda thing, as with my DeviantART page and my website definitely has a few years remaining. Of course, I’m not deciding to live under a rock for the rest of my life, and I will still be using Twitter, Instagram and I’m hoping to use my Tumblr more often from now on.

Well, goodbye WordPress, and my blog, and umm… yeah.

Watch The Throne 2 Announced

11 Mar

Earlier, Virgil Abloh (A member of Kanye West’s creative company DONDA) posted an image on his Instagram (‘virgilabloh’) displaying a monochrome ‘Watch The Throne’ cover, which many are believing to be the cover of the new sequel. The image was captioned ‘#SXSW’ which may be referring to the SXSW festival where Ye’ and Jay are meant to be performing. A new song? Who knows, there definitely won’t be a release date soon but this is a development on the matter.

A brief history of The North Face x Supreme Collaborations

27 Nov

In light of last weeks Latest F/W 2013 The North Face x Supreme release, I decided to compile a brief history of all their collaborations into one post, to save you the time of trawling through endless archives. Enjoy! Pictures via Supreme

2007 – Genesis

February 2007 marked the start of a line of collaborations, as Supreme and TNF collaborated for the first time on two jackets. The ‘Summit Series’ jacket was chosen and wild colours, leopard print lining and Supreme branding throughout was the name of the game.

2008 Spring – City Prints

The following year another duet of jackets were released on the collaboration, once again utilising the ‘Summit Series’ jacket. This time both had bold all-over prints of a city on the jacket; one in full-colour and one in greyscale.

2008 Winter – Fleece

In the winter of 2008 another release made between this strengthening collaboration, but this time the ‘Denali’ fleece jacket was used instead of the previous ‘Summit’ windbreakers. Definitely had more use this time round instead of a fashion statement, these are hard to come by now.

2010 Spring – Pullover

After an absence of collaboration in 2009, the partnership was repaired with the release of the Expedition pullover released in March 2010. Made in an all-black, red-blue, and camouflage colorway, this jacket was also 100% waterproof.

2010 Winter – Mountain Guides & Duffles

The ‘Mountain Guide’ is one of the North Face’s most popular casual ski-chic jackets, and in November 2010 it was collaborated on with Supreme to form a selection of 3 two-tone jackets, a black-black, brown-black & red-black. Also this was the first season for an accessory to be collab’d on as well, with the ‘Base Camp’ duffle bag being used.

2011 Winter – Leopard

For this season an assortment of coloured leopard-prints were applied to your favorite North Face products, the ‘Nupste’ jacket and ‘Rolling Thunder’ bag to name. Alot of people have seen the likes of Drake and A$AP Rocky wearing these jackets, they’re unbelievably rare now.

2013 Winter – Fur

No, not normal fur, that would be too common for Supreme. At the time of this being written, the latest collaboration between The North Face and Supreme is the fur-print ‘Nupste’ jacket and vest. In true Supreme fashion it features a wild fur pattern print with Supreme branding found throughout the jacket. Pack away hood with reflective ‘SUPREME’ logo is also there.
