"MAKE NO!SE is a lifestyle multimedia project series where I highlight (via highly stylized photography and video) local creatives, such as artists, musicians, DJs, that are making noise within their respective crafts/industries.
In this first edition of MAKE NO!SE, which is supported by DC Shoes' Life Collection, I highlight a DJ by the name of DJ 2-Tone Jones."

winter favorites

the mighty internet says that we'll get the first snow by this evening so i dug out some of my favorite boots for this winter. clockwise, starting top left:
COMME des GARCONS x Tricker's collab, Blackbird x Alden Tugger Work Boot, BEAMS Plus, Grenson Archie Tan (ok, not a boot in the classical sense, but it fits nicely in the row).
maybe i'll put one or two of them on my wishlist for christmas!

"INFLUENCERS is a short documentary that explores what it means to be an influencer and how trends and creativity become contagious today in music, fashion and entertainment. The film attempts to understand the essence of influence, what makes a person influential without taking a statistical or metric approach. Written and Directed by Paul Rojanathara and Davis Johnson, the film is a Polaroid snapshot of New York influential creatives (advertising, design, fashion and entertainment) who are shaping today's pop culture. "Influencers" belongs to the new generation of short films, webdocs, which combine the documentary style and the online experience."

burning rubber

Detroit based sneaker boutique Burn Rubber recently teamed up with New Balance to create something that really took my attention. my favorite NB model, the 580, in 2 really nice colorways. powder blue and grey, both in the quality nubuck leather we all know from New Balance and classic mesh. the inside has an argyle pattern in the shop colors and the cherry on top is the gum sole wich looks absolutely stunning in combination with the 2 upper colors. the shoes will be available on Nov. 26th, hopefully on their online shop too.
