A Bathing Ape
 

A Bathing Ape in Japanese means a spoiled kid or youth. Like all developed countries, there are probably plenty of those in Japan. A Bathing Ape is also a clothing brand formed in 1993 by a DJ / producer called Nigo. Nigo, whilst producing hip hop records in the early 90s started screen priniting his own designs and selling them to friends and associates, before deciding to go commercial. Read more

Their story and mine
 

Hi fellow fashionistas, and welcome back to my blog.  I’ve recently been looking back over my website and it appears there’s one subjects I have spent a lot of time talking about, and it’s a subject not only close to my heart, but to the heart of a lot of women worldwide.....shoes.  I can’t say I found it surprising that I have talked about shoes so often, as the inspiration to write this blog post was when I saw a friend wearing the most beautiful converses known to mankind and I knew I absolutely had to have them.  After discovering they are no longer made, and were part of a limited edition a couple of years ago I searched one of the best second hand websites I know;http://www.for-sale.ie/.   Lo and behold I managed to find them and my feet are incredibly happy.   Read more

Christmas Jumpers

17/11/2016 Main

Love them or loathe them, it seems as if the Christmas jumper is one of those perennial fashion items that never quite finds its way into the style rubbish bin. Sure it ebbs and flows each year, its popularity waxing and waning with the strength of the minor celebrities that implicitly endorse them by showcasing them on whatever passes for their talent showcase of a TV show. In fact, I entirely blame the TV for the rise and evolution of this hideous fashion item. Read more

Winter Jackets
 

Hi all, and welcome back to my fashion apparel blog.  Winter has well and truly arrived.  And although there are a lot of reasons not to be happy about that it does mean a couple of really good things.  The main one for me being  winter clothes, and specifically winter coats/jackets.  Today I thought we’d look at my top picks for this upcoming winter.   Read more

Bandana Mad

Bandana Mad

How’s it going people? Welcome back to the blog. I wanted to add a post to talk about bandanas. I can’t believe I didn’t catch onto the fad in my younger days. I always thought they were for hippies, surf dudes, cool chicks or rockers and figured I’d look like a total idiot if I was to wear one. Well, the other day, I was around my aunties and my young niece was there. She’d got a really nice turquoise blue and white, floral patterned bandana and I thought it looked well cool, so tried it on. She’s a little pro so she tied it up for me and did my hair. If I do say so myself, I looked awesome man! I’ve occasionally worn headbands in the past when I had my hair shorter when I was back in School & College but I’ve never really worn anything other than my curls or maybe a hay occasionally, if I’ve come across a cool one I like. Then it’s usually more to protect me from the sun, not so much a fashion statement. Read more

Hindu Iconography

07/04/2016 Main

I wanted to talk today about a great passion of mine and that is for Hindu iconography.  In particular I really love the artistic representations of individual Hindu deities. I enjoy modern depictions of the Hindu deities but what I am most interested in are the ancient carvings contained within Hindu temples and the paintings that can be found within some of the restored ancient Hindu scriptures.

Gaitonde

Hi everyone, I hope you have enjoyed all of my posts so far. I want to keep things both diverse and interesting on my blog – somewhere to celebrate and reflect on Indian art and culture. With this in mind I thought that it would be good to talk about one of India’s most famous artists and indeed my own favourite. Well known for his abstract style, a style that was less well travelled by other Indian artists of his time, Gaitonde created pieces that captured a spirit, imagination and depth, edged with a sense of calm and tranquillity, that leaves the viewer in a trance of silence and stillness. In essence Gaitonde’s work reflects his own interest in Zen Buddhism and in turn a reflection of how he lived his life – it represents a sense of joy, pleasure and peacefulness and an intimate relationship between painter and painting.

I personally think there’s more interesting thigs to collect but everybody has their own opinion and my wife is very happy collecting stamps. Read more
