the reason I have never subscribed to the 'wear black
and you'll look cool for sure ' philosophy
is that it is a colour only some can wear and carry off.
like a second skin.
Deane Lucas and his dog Humphry are naturals -
it doesn't look like they are making a statement or
wearing a uniform.
black is their colour. it works for them.

its been a pretty amazing week since last Saturday when this review on Outpost Hokianga came out in the London Financial Times style and shopping section.
for starters i've always loved their pink paper stock - its' so distinctive.
(if you think about it, it's strange we don't find other colours at the news stand)
Still, there is only one LFT and it has been a total buzz sensation mixed with a good dose of overwhelm-ment ( i know its not a word but you know what i mean)
and it has to be said it's also feeling like a good kick in the behind with the aforementioned proverbial gumboot.
time to get my skates on - even if it is so nice to work barefoot.

The story is that the side of the Outpost was blessed the other night with a grafitti bomb
( details of which you can see here - and the only bombing we condone)
Heidi gracefully accepted to model this very orange parker - and these very red glasses.
Work in progress - like the wall behind her.
If you think this orange is no fashion matter - then do something about it at www.tearitdown.org

three girls came into the store - two had worked on this tattoo -
etched in emerald and pacific but also like a minimal-deco-geometric.
I asked them to style these silver bracelets we currently have in store -
a combination of elemental shapes , but really lite.

this is one of the relax-ez vous summer styles i love roman sandalettes - sexy and authentic
macramay-be manages to work in a simple shape
chargo shorts and a tee with a scarf are easy to live in
and the oversize sunnies in jade ? they work with the straight blonde & the tan.

as the name implies the opening day of 'reel random' (moving image installation works)
was a totally unexpected quality mix of people.
Thank you to all of you that turned up.
