As I look through the online portfolio of photographer Zach Cordner, I find myself in awe of his ability to capture the raw essence of his subjects with a clarity and perspective that is simply stunning. Whether he’s portraying the gritty and often solitary life of a skater on tour, the rebellious dune-buggy off-road action in Glamis, CA, or the wackiness of Tom Green, Zach delivers the photographic goodness. By day he’s the photo editor of Transworld Stance Magazine, and as a freelance photographer he has a client list that other photographers drool over. Zach counts Rolling Stone, MTV, Sony Records, SPIN, and URB as just a few of his many clients. As good as this all sounds, you won’t be fully impressed till you see Zach’s work for yourself at ZachCordner.com.
It’s not everyday that you come across a sale like this. The streetwear label Future Relic that I blogged about a few months ago is having a huge summer inventory sale right now, and I can almost guarantee that everything will sell out at these near-wholesale prices. Every t-shirt is going for $15 and even the new Future Relic polo is a steal at $25. In the market for a new hat? The Kid Sniper Patch hat is 50% off at $15. The list goes on and on. Don’t sleep on this opportunity to own a piece of clothing that is not only high-quality, but also refreshingly conscious and thought-provoking as well.
Another week another Dose, (albeit a little late) here are a few picks from what’s hot at Product Dose!
Marcel Wanders Zeppelin Light reminds me of a jelly fish or sea urchin, beautiful and unique. FlipClips, an awesome service where you can upload a 15 second video and have it translated into a 75-page flip book– Maybe even a great branding tool? The tasty Jhung Yuro/PRPS Denim Sneaker made in a limited edition of 120 pairs available around the world next month.
This is a wonderful store with a real story behind it. If you dont live in the UK you probably haven’t heard of JCB, but JCB makes those iconic yellow diggers and the Bamford [B in JCB] family have now opened a number of lifestyle stores in London. Bamford and Sons created a master collection which spans the complex demands of the city, and supplies the essentials for country life, when relaxing with family and friends
Each collection is built from beautifully made items of real but unpretentious distinction. Hand finished shirts, classic cashmere sweaters and coats. The accessories, like the clothes, combine innovation and heritage, state of the art items are cleverly juxtaposed with vintage collectables. All have lasting value, all work together as a coherent whole. Their ambition is to make beautifully designed, practical clothes which give lasting pleasure.
Bamford’s elegant flagship store has three floors of luxury menswear, boyswear, travel accessories and hard-to-find gadgets. As well as white Sony PSPs, customized iPods and a Scaletrix to play with in the 2nd floor menswear department, there’s the excellent Daylesford organic cafe in the basement.
