I stopped by the local sneakers paradise KICKS/HI. I frequent St. Alfred's in Chicago as you can see from previous posts so I was soooo stoked to go back to the main shop off of Waikiki. It is an absolute heaven for anyone that wants to own some really cool shoes and tees. I eyeballed a pair of VANS x SANTIGOLD sneakers but never purchased them goodies (#regret). The guys at these shops are super chill and don't boast a condescending attitude which you'd almost expect when entering subculture establishment of this caliber. On the contrary, they're so welcoming to newbies and veterans alike it's hard not to love this shop. Within the span of three weeks, I managed to buy 3 pairs of kicks for my brother and shipped them off to the Philippines. On a final note, I love it when people let me take pictures of their shop, or clothes or tatts. If you don't let me shoot you, then you won't get up here! Up to you. A+
If ever you find yourself on Oahu I'd highly recommend this shop.
This brand has been in business for so long they are celebrating their 52nd anniversary this year and are the forerunner in manufacturing navy, army and marine apparel in. This company has sold over a staggering 40 million articles of clothing since its inception.
OHWOW will soon be inaugurating their LA gallery with a solo exhibition of recent work by New York-based tattooist-turned-fine artist Scott Campbell. The exhibition, entitled "Noblesse Oblige", is Campbell's West Coast debut and expands on his tattoo-inspired sculptures formed out of cut dollar bills; one new cubic piece, which measures over two-foot in width, uses $5000 worth of currency to create an intricate sunken relief.
Campbell has also chosen to take a step away from these relief works, for which he's become rather well-known, and has created a series of engraved copper plate prints, made using a tattoo gun, and a collection of drawings executed on the outside of delicate ostrich eggshells. The morbid, working-class imagery - which hints back to his career as a tattoo artist - remains, however - suggesting that Cambell is trying to create a new context for the genre, rather than leave his artistic beginnings behind.
