O Romeo Santos, Wherefore Art Thou Stylist

So Romeo Santos of the world famous Bachata band Aventura has gone solo and released his album which is mostly great, yet there is this annoyance I have with him or shall I say his stylist. Since the second Aventura album his wardrobe folks (or person) have been slowly chopping at his style to end up looking like a flamboyant 80's reject drug dealer. The music has gone from ok to fantastic and even has caught the attention of big artists Usher and even Lil Wayne (yeah I know...) but while his clothing has marginally improved, the whole tight suit and cheesy jackets are as bad as his "yessir" or "lemme find ouuuut!" quips. I think it's time to update that stylist or let them know they don't have to dress him all silly like that. It's part of the complete package as an artist to strive and show your best with what you also wear most times (esp. in Bachata), all I'm saying is let the brother look the part that he's in and not like a 'just got rich' hick with Pepe Jeans on. I'm a fan of Aventura and Romeo's music all the way but wow their fashion and design presentation has been underwhelming, at least their videos have gotten A LOT better. Check out one of my favorite videos below for 'Su Veneno,' it's the Bolero version of the Bachata hit which I think sounds better than the original in my opinion.

Worxlife Fall 2011

Local NJ company Worxlife has released their Fall 2011 line, it will be available online (September 13, 2011) and now at Black Flag Shoppe in Clifton, NJ. I already snagged up my 'Rotten Denim Cap' at BFS and already hear the 'Money Clip Wallet' is moving fast! What I like about this series specifically is the rugged yet mature feel to the line and that speaks volumes for the folks behind it. Simple yet dope.

Hey WLco folks... ikaw nga ba?

Eric Jordan on KarmaloopTV

KarmaloopTV recently got with Eric Jordan at Gallery 151, illustrator and in house designer for the label Rocksmith to talk about a few of his favorite pieces and experiences. He has some pretty impressive work and when you also count the work that he's put in for Rocksmith there is no denying his versatility. If you want to see more of his work check his site EJORDANILL.

Supreme x Playboy = Umm Ok

So everybody's favorite(?) designer street wear brand has come together with Hef and his Playboy brand for a few items. There is something still cool about the badboy image of wearing Playboy... ok fine that was back in the 80's. Supreme has some stuff coming out doning the rabbit logo but fails to actually create some kind of concept or NEWness and just seem like jackets, keychains and shirts you can find anywhere while paying a premium for... count me out. Not sure what they were planning to accomplish with this drop but it seems abit weak due to them not creating anything new or refreshing with both their brand power. Check out some more Spring/Summer collabo collection below.
