The leggings that peeped out from under cropped pants were actually knit anklets also leather cable embossed jumper and blazer more at home with wool fabric was extremely innovative and unorthodox to the trained eye, in other words, nothing was quite what it seemed, the manipulation of porportions and familiarity was something that relates to Rei Kawakubo work on a regular basis, and similarities to my research.

Regarded as somewhat as a Genius the man behind A Bathing Ape will be doing a signing at DSM tomorrow at 7pm Friday 16th January. I am contemplating travelling down south to see him and get a book signed and an excuse to walk round DSM for an hour or so.
His nickname NIGO literally means "number two" in Japanese, refering to Hiroshi Fujiwara who had a influence on his ideology and work ethics, also nickname was giver due to the physical resemblance.
A diverse eclectic character also says his influences came from the likes of The Beatles, Elvis, Run DMC and Hip-Hop
NOWHERE will open again for a limited period of time in the basement of DSM from 17th January 2009 selling A Bathing Ape products and exclusive products made by Nigo and Jun together under the NOWHERE name."

An addictive pain that. Which once you forget, you are planning the next appointment.
Fil @ Ultimate Skin has had a growing reputation in Leeds as one of the best Tattooists in the city over the last couple of years. Fils style is very Japanese and Traditional. After having work done by him I decided to take Sheena to get her first Tattoo, that she had been contemplating for a while. Something simplistic and meaningful to herself.
Fils fascination with Ron Burgundy
