COMME des GARCONS for Speedo

cdg_speedo.jpg

It seems like every week we hear about a new designer collaboration, perhaps if you’re not collaborating with another brand you’re not kewl? Well, I absolutely love crossovers because the price points are always lower and it has a very special effect, ideas/creations can be broader and it is def fresh. I’ve just learned that COMME des GARCONS did a crossover with Speedo to create a womens and mens swimwear collection. I think this is a great collection for the athletes, I don’t personally wear one piece bathing suits but the designs are simple and on point. I especially like the stripe one piece, if you want to buy it now, Topshop is carrying it. May be a clothing collab is up next? Who knows…check out the mens collection here .

Goumada – New Ladies’ Line!!


Russ of Ssur fame has started a new brand just for the ladies called Goumada. The name comes from the Italian word "comare" which means godmother/maid of honor. The word has morphed a bit, is pronounced "Goumada" and is a slang Italian mob term for mistress. The line will only be sold at very few select locations worldwide but 2 tees have already dropped on Cultist so cop ’em quick! And, if you want to learn more about the man behind the label peep BKRW .

Supa-Model Search!!

Hey ladies!! Amanda Lopez , MISS member and former Mama intern, is a photographer extraordinaire that is down in LA working with THE Estevan Oriol and she let me in on a new project . . . .

Upper Playground is putting together a show with Estevan Oriol and Yasumasa Yonehara. Yonehara is well known for his seductive images of Japanese models and Oriol is known for his shots of lovely Latinas. The concept behind the project is that the photographers will switch their subject matter. So, Estevan is searching for Japanese girls in SF to photograph the first week of April and Yone is looking for Latinas…

This is your chance to be a supa-model and be shot by some of the most talented photographers out there right now! If you fit the bill and are interested please send a picture and your contact info to yone_estevan@yahoo.com. Models must be 18+ and able to shoot the first week of April. The show is on the 5th of April. Best of Luck!!

Evolve Universal

Evolve Universal is one of the first girls streetwear brands I heard about back before "streetwear" was a word and I was still doing Cybelle (R.I.P.). If you think there are few ladies in the game now, there were even less when we started. Jennifer Nagler, the lovely lady behind Evolve Universal is a painter and does all of the artwork/illustrations/graphics for the line herself. I’ve always loved her illustration style and she always manages to include a positive message – you can never have enough of that. She’s been in the game for deep and her line is going through a bit of a renaissance after taking a little break. I’m so excited she’s producing new stuff. Here’s a little sneak peak – her new site should be up in about a month but until then you can check this out.

More pics after the jump . . .
