Haze x G-Shock – 30th Anniversary in NYC

Eric Haze truly inspires me so much.  A visionary, a revolutionary, and most importantly, an incredible artist.  Haze was one of the originators, who took his love for graffiti and hip-hop culture and brought it into the concept of skate, surf, and consumer culture.  His style is something I admire and try to emulate every day; understated simplicity in the more artistic way.  Arrows and stars, clean handwriting, pure creativity.

G-Shock and prolific artist Haze will present a major exhibition and release event in downtown Manhattan this Friday. With support of Casio, the artist organized a 25 year retrospective of the HAZE brand, which includes a variety of product collaborations with various brands along the way. The opening is set to feature the launch of the 4th signature “HAZE x G-Shock” model, which will be the first release of the brand’s 30th anniversary collection. The exhibition is set to include framed silkscreens, embroideries, baseball caps, clothing, footwear, furniture, toys, and more. The opening will be held this Friday night at SOLO on 40 Broad Street in New York City, and features this video produced by Haze and Showcobra going through 25 years of archives in preparation for the show.

True Artistry. Smooth.

 

A Year In New York by Andrew Clancy

This is beautiful work, really hits the soul.  This is the type of film you can appreciate no matter where you are from; videos like this always resonate with me.  Andrew Clancy did an awesome job with this one. “Living in New York I’d grab my Canon 7D, or S95, and shoot footage of what was going on around me. It seemed like a never ending project and you could stay filming life in New York for a long time. But eventually I put my camera down and started to edit. Here’s the end result, it’s a bit rough and ready but that’s life in the Big Apple I guess. Turn up the volume or put your earphones in for the beautiful song ‘We Don’t Eat’ by Irishman James Vincent McMorrow.” – Clancy

“An Englishman In New York” by Ben Sherman

Dazed Digital partners up with British brand Ben Sherman to help with its Autumn/Winter 2011 campaign. I thought this video was really cool because it shows how people from England, can come to New York and appreciate the culture right away. An entirely different country, a different continent, but they embrace the good vibes nonetheless. They talk about the heritage and how it’s ‘the fastest changing place in the world.’ Thats dope; something to be proud of.
