Showing this weekend only, SIFF (Seattle International Film Festival) presents The Dark Side of Oz, a fantastic pairing of The Wizard of Oz (1939) and Pink Floyd’s 1973 album Dark Side of the Moon.These two iconic titles have more in common musically and lyrically than one might imagine.-Krista
29-year-old Micah Cohen likes to joke that the early success of his fairly new line is the result of "beating small children" and borrowing fur from "three-month old puppies," but in reality the L.A. based designer is just a hard worker devoted to one thing: making great, updated classics.
Micah prefers to work with faux fur and pleather options for his Shades of Grey collection so no puppies are harmed in his design process, which includes literally writing out a plan for each design before he even touches a scrap of fabric. While he never designs with a theme in mind, his fall line is piles of richly colored plaids, utility jackets, chambray shirts and cargo pants totally fit for a mountain man (even if said mountain man lives downtown and hates the thought of eating beans from a can).
Adam Sikorski is a Denver-based T-shirt designer who has offered his products in local stores since 2006. He prides himself on hand printing every shirt, thus no two are exactly identical and his recent Coloradical collection shows his flare for Colorado pride. -Kyle
After working with the The Work guys with last weeks post, I found out that they had recently worked with one of my favorite local shops: REVIVE, a one of a kind custom urban boutique! If you want to find great custom flat bills, collectible SBs, or some sick customized vest and jackets, then Revive is the place to go. I am extremely picky about my flat bills and Revive won me over my first visit. Dr. Romanelli and Revive have recently collaborated to launch the first of multiple projects paying tribute to the great american metropolis that is Detroit. Both Revive and Dr Romanelli aim to show the world that despite what the media might suggest: Detroit is and always will be a city alive!
Follow Revive on Facebook and see what the guys put out next. -Aren
