VELOUR fall/winter 2011 video

Some time ago we made a post on our site about how the french name of our new shop "Héritage", when translated into english, is called "Inheritance", Only a few weeks after doing so, this lovely video by one of our favourite brands Velour was released under the same title name. 

A pleasant coincidence which denotes how well matched this brand is for our shop.

...The term "collective consciousness" describes this occurrence quite well (and is an interesting theory about how different people isolated from one another can be on a very similar wave length)... 

We've been carrying this line for many years now and very much enjoy working with these sweet Swedes. The fall selection has arrived at the shop last week and includes Chinos, dress shirts, tuques, winter coats and dresses.

For the shooting of the Velour A/W 11 collection the team travelled to the place where everything about Velour once started. They went to the designer Per Anderssons grand parents’ old ready-to-wear shop, which closed in the mid-eighties after 50 years of business. This store was one of few clothing stores placed in a small town in the middle of the Swedish woods and has stayed untouched for several decades. In 1997 Per went through the old stock and decided to make use of this asset. He went back to Gothenburg and opened the shop Nostalgi in the center of the city together with a couple of friends. The shop sold the dead stock clothes together with re-makes, art and design and became a forum for the Göteborg independent scene. Nostagi's creative customers inspired the Velour team to, in 2002 take the step towards designing their own clothes; and the first Velour collection was launched in 2005.

ASVOFF

in

If you're in Paris in early October we recommend you take a moment to attend this fashion film festival hosted by "A Shaded View on Fashion Film".

"Diane Pernet is part of the first generation of fashion bloggers. Establishing her website ’A Shaded View on Fashion Film’ in addition to her already internationally acclaimed ASVOF blog, Diane provides a platform for the people, places and scenes that push fashion forwards, from the inside out. The Internet and blogging has revolutionised the accessibility of the elitist world of fashion. Allowing previously exclusive runway shows to be live streamed, a webcam perspective is now becoming preferable even to the prestigious front row tickets. Widening potential and encouraging the public to interact with designers on a more personable and objectionable basis, bloggers are able to instantaneously feed images and commentaries across the globe on collections the moment they hit the runway. This pushing of boundaries and allowing of fashion to become more inclusive, bravely pioneers a new approach to the way we experience fashion: click, enter, enjoy. " -Milly McMahon

TRANSMISSION:OLDgOLD:19

in

Recorded live at the office last January TRANSMISSION:OLDgOLD:19 is 'Jonah's Airline'. This album's selections were less premeditated than it's predecessor and more of a spontaneious conglomeration of moody songs which Jonah is quite fond of. There was trouble with one of our turntables during set up, so this was made (painstakingly) with the use of only one table. Luckily it came out good enough for us to want to share it with you regardless. The result is a voyage into deep and spacey disco, house and techno. Enjoy!

TRACKLISTING

1 - Dutch Rhythm Combo - Cartagenera (Ray Mang Remix)
2 - Filipsson & Lindblad - Another Plan
3 - I:Cube - Falling
4 - Lovebirds - Tuesday
5 - CFCF - Letters Home
6 - Code 718 - Equinox (Henrik Schwarz dub)
7 - Lee Curtis - I Can Hear You Arthur
8 - Still Going - Still Going Theme
9 - Azari & III - Into The Night (Nicolas Jaar Remix)
10 - Lusine - Two Dots (Jonah Airline)
