RIP DJ AM

I've been packing since last night to the sounds of DJ AM's Elton Mixtape Series. I was in total disbelief this afternoon when I caught wind of his passing. The thing about Adam was that he was genuinely a great person, we used to argue about who nerded out more over Daft Punk. As my friend Joe put it... "The worst part was that he was actually a very talented DJ and not just a human mixtape."



You can download the Elton Mixtape Series here: DJ AM - ELTON MIXTAPES

Listen and remember Adam Goldstein aka DJ AM.

Human Interface...

My new favorite video from 4 guys that hail from Barcelona.

The music is beautiful and by a group called Lullatone, it sounds as if Sigur Ros and The Album Leaf teamed up to create a collective lullaby.

BALMAIN HOMME

I haven't been this excited about fashion since Hedi's days at DIOR, okay well Balenciaga Homme 08 was pretty rad but the new Balmain collection is killer...



I guess it's only natural that they use one of Hedi's muses.

FLASHING

Lights Lights Lights...

Some people fail to realize the effect lighting has on mood and ambiance. I can't even start working on a project until the lighting is just right, it could mean the difference between scamming on not scamming, just saying. Here's a beautiful example from PB.



I'm moving into a house this week, where I can finally hang my pair of vintage French Deco 60's lamps.

GAINSBOURG

When my uncle passed away he left me with his music collection, as I thumbed through the archives I found the most prominent work to be that of Serge Gainsbourg. I often lie in bed listening to these lost favorites, exploring how they might have affected him.

These records have come to be some of my most prized, and now there is a movie about the life of Mr. Gainsbourg, as the eponymous singer/songwriter, composer, film-maker, actor and general provocateur...

BESPOKE

My grandpa, a man that wears a suit everyday regardless of the occassion (in the Saigon heat and humidity no less)... always told me as a kid that a fine pair of dress shoes was essential to every man's wardrobe. Only now can I come to appreciate such a formality, these bespoke Gaziano & Girling woburn blucher brogues are a beautiful example of a versatile shoe (worn with suit or casually with cropped trousers sans socks =)



I perused the fabric markets of Saigon during a recent visit and had some bespoke trousers tailored by the talented Mr. Chieu.

I'll be venturing back to Vietnam early September, another visit will be necessary for a tux and single button suit =)
