It's been a while that we didn't have any good feelings with the fashion industry, but with his latest show, Hedi Slimane gave us what we where expected since a long time. A collection that is completely out of time, out of trends, inspired by the end of the 60's era and the beginning of the hippie style. We've seen on the catwalk, Jimi Hendrix, Brian Jones, Neil Young and many others influencers from this era. Of course you can find anything from this show in vintage stores, but the looks are great and everything sounds real. The music was performed by the psychedelcic band from LA, Mystic Braves.

We didn't see much about the Weels and Waves 2014 but had the luck to hook up with John Eldridge and friends. John runs CMBL which produces custom built motorcycles and surfboards out of UK. So he just came to have a look at the event and won incidentally the thirsty fins surf contest.
Catching up with them three days before the event we found an uncrowded surf spot (42, rue des Lombards) and had so much fun in this classic beach break. It was perfect for testing John's boards. It was predictable, they are mental.
We met them during the famous unfamous Hip Wiggler Invitationnal in Sennen - UK, where we were really well welcomed. It was an unstudied return : good vibes, french food and happy times.
Far from the event and just between us, we enjoyed pristine moments.

We just received this in our mail box from our friends in the north, Oh Dawn :
They just released a new edit, with two rolls of 8mm film shot with six months apart.
The principle was to shot one film about a summer evening, making an Oh Dawn wood signs outside their workshop in Copenhagen. And another one for some january action from Thé Kattegat, left hand point in the south of Sweden.
Two rolls, two seasons, two aspects of the OH DAWN sphere - Two sides of the same coin!

It was supposed to be a break from the cold and the dark of Paris life but the weather in the south of France turned into a massive storm.
Some can be disapointed but some others take those storms as an occasion to get into creativity. That's how we passed those two days of rain, wind and massive waves. Like the Jesus and Mary Chain said, we were "happy when it rains".

It's always a pleasure to hear from our friends from Copenhagen. It's been a few years we knew each others and we are glad to see the brand growing.
Years after years they produce more and more, getting inspiration from their country, from the cold and the beauty of the north seas, surfing with gloves, hoods and boots most part of the year. Now, they have a full range of garments, begin to shape surfboards and we're stoked for them and glad to spread the word.
Hope we can meet and share some waves soon buddy's !
