Garni - Diverse Conception

Garni stuff is all in.

Sunday, October 07, 2007


The reason we were quiet with the updates was due to the AW07 drops as well as sorting out the Garni display.

This season we shuffled it up a bit.

Making their debuts in store are CTRL Clothing, Trainerspotter, WoodWood and the highly anticipated Garni Jewellery.

Hit up the CTRL website at for a trippy good time. Their ties with Vice magazine are really apparent in their creative direction and you all know we're mad about Vice down here. We've had quite a few phonecalls about CTRL so there it is.

Trainerspotter killed it with a tonne of great designs but we hand picked some of their stand out items. Their windjammers are second to none.

We beat a few people around town to get WoodWood from Denmark. It finally made it down here. Like P.A.M, these guys are really bringing it. They have really managed to achieve that balance between street and refined fashion. The guys on New Dandyism, Hypebeast, Highsnobiety are all on the bandwagon as well because of their lasting appeal. Some of their outerwear pieces go good with your frequent flyer miles.

P.A.M's AW07 pieces are sure fire. For all you lot that have come in and begged for us to unleash em, they are now available. I don't need to go into much detail about P.A.M. Enough already.

Last but definitely not least. Our efforts for Garni are on display. We have dedicated a cabinet on it's own for the products. The quality and price alone justify the need for a dedicated display space and I'm sure you lot won't be dissapointed. The skull rings are slowly dissapearing. For those of you that are pretty sick of Comme wallets and are looking for something different, the Garni accessories are a sure bet. Made in Japan and exclusive to us. Hell, refer back to my Japan visit post for more on that.

Back soon, DHL and UPS just dropped in. Maiden Noir and Julian Red are now in. P.A.M Hoodies are also in.

That's all for AW07. We'll keep you posted.


Back with some solid updates for you lot.

Just to let you all know, I was away in Australia for a short holiday as well as to meet some people that are relevant to this business.

My thoughts and opinions on Melbourne will never change. That is one of the cities with a truly unique subculture that is constantly stirring up new and crazy shit all the time. I met with the likes of Pigeon Combine. If any of you guys have not heard of them, do some research. They are taking on a conceptual route toward streetwear and have created something like no other. The buzz in Singapore is louder than ever and they will supposedly be featured in Harper's Bazaar sometime soon. And they're not even represented here yet. Crazy.

I also met with the guys from Schwipe. Their stuff is loco. Their creative direction is no less. Those guys have good things happening down there. Mike Giant was the featured artist for that period of time (photos below). Imagine seeing some of that stuff inked on your body.

P.A.M was another stop. I went down to see the SS08 stuff at their office in Richmond. All I can say is that those guys keep turning it up season after season. Their expansion into Japan's Parco is another step in the right direction. You'll be as pleased with SS08 as I was. Guest artists will again include Fergadelic, Eye(Boredoms) and Josh Petherick.

Last but not least, we met the dudes behind Provider Trainers. Those guys have set up a second store in downtown Melbourne which is by far one of the better looking footwear stores around. We also got a sneak peak of their NB 1500's that are going to drop sometime at the end of the year or beginning of next. What a package!! Sure to make your eyes drool.

Back soon.
