As the year comes to an end, and Christmas quick approaching. We’ve decided to put together a list of things that we’d like for Christmas, listing 6 of our most wanted items in all areas of SLAMXHYPE’s interests, just in case Santa is online and checking his RSS in his last few frantic days of shopping.
1. Adam Kimmel Work Boots.
These are understated and rugged. My style involves probably the opposite of ‘Breaking Necks’, I’m a strong believer in being understated and worrying more about quality. These are perfect.. no one would even notice!
2. Street Machine X Andre Deck.
I’m a huge fan of Mr. A. This deck is a great way to get a hold if his signature art at a reasonable price.
3. Bless Bed Cover.
4. Moleskin 2009 Diary.
Every year I stock up on a Moleskin diary and notebooks, this year will be no exception. The best Diaries on the planet.
5. The Stephen Sprouse Book.
Available in January, someone get me a voucher or something! Sprouse is without doubt one of the most influential people in art and fashion’s history, there are already signs that, thanks to Marc Jacobs, 2009 will be a year to remember in the memory of the late graffiti writer and fashion designers honour.
6. Adam Kimmel Leather Bomber.
My favourite designer, and you always need a good bomber jacket, I need a new one, and I can’t imagine anything better than this buttery make up.
Perhaps the most iconic artist in my view, and the artist who set up the culture as we know it today has been so influential and unfortunetaly more so since his passing away. What makes this more interesting is this book was going to be published before his untimely death by Jeffrey Deitch and Julia Gruen who curated this book.
2. Christopher Wool book
For similar reasons why I want the Keith Haring book, Wool changed the face of history with his artwork and his in your face, achingly simple, deceptively frank approach has become the face of “New York artwork.” This book has been well put together featuring production polaroids and installation photos by Wool himself making this a great prospect.
3. Visvim Elmendorf Leather Jacket
Visvim is one label I can really associate myself with, the uncompromising approach which refines innovation and a fine aesthetic has culminated in this great leather jacket. The aged leather is extremely subtle while the cut is above and beyond completing the piece. I really like the Kautokeino piece but the fur collar is a bit too much for me.
4. Moleskin Diary and Notebooks
Grew up only using Moleskin, and don’t see myself changing so every year I must have the diary and a pack of notebooks to put my ideas down.
5. Fuct Zippo
When you combine two names of such stature you cannot look past this, Erik Brunetti has built a dynasty at Fuct with his well interpretated artwork and understanding of streetwear. While Zippo have there own history which has culminated in something I must have.
6. Incase Powerslider Case for iPhone 3G
While I am not really one for technology, I still rely on notebooks and pencils but I must admit my iPhone has made my life a lot easier. To boast I would really like to extend my collection of Incase items with this great Powerslider Case, the custom engineered lithium-ion polymer battery selling it to me. I would not mind the Fragment piece but this one has it all.
