Congratulations to the two winners of our #wheredoyouwear Instagram competition. Our personal favourite was @kieranpeels and his post all the way from Beirut, and @gpwer got the most likes on his fresh pic. Both win £250 to spend at the Goodhood Store. Thanks to everyone who entered!
Some brilliant stuff this week. Making the grade are these truly stunning posters by Gunter Rambow, a Japanese artist sends plants into space with beautiful results and Alejandro Chaskielberg takes surreal photos of locals working the Parana River Delta in Argentina using only moonlight. Also this week we’ve got a nifty bit of bonus listening for the weekend courtesy of Gerry Read, who has remixed the entirety of Lootpack’s classic album, ‘Soundpieces: Da Antidote’.
The heat. Sweet Jesus. If I haven’t melted away by the time I reach the end of the paragraph here’s what’s made Best of the Week this week. The Guardian go record shopping in New York with Talib Kweli, a super grainy video emerges of Kanye West freestyling aged nineteen, and Matt Sweeney’s almost surreal collection of photographs of Hollywood between 1979 and 1983.
Please note we will be closed from Friday 18th July 2014 until Tuesday 22nd July due to filming on Coronet Street. The website will be running as normal and any orders placed with the option to pick up from store can still be collected on the dates we are closed between the hours of 12:00 and 5:00pm. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.
The Hundreds crew stopped over in London for a few days last week and paid a visit to some of the best local haunts, ourselves included. You can catch The Goodhood Store and The Goodhood Life Store alongside the world famous Joe Warner in the video above from around the 03:38 mark. Much love to Bobby, Ben and the rest of the gang for passing through.
On this weeks Best of the Week is a brilliant in-depth interview with techno pioneer Robert Hood, possibly the greatest video you’ll watch this month as a drone camera captures surfers in Hawaii and Mike Mandel’s beautiful ‘People in Cars‘ photo series from the 1970′s.
