Norse Projects AW13 Lookbook

Norse Projects dropped their AW13 lookbook recently. Filled with the kind of functional, minimalist pieces you’d expect from the brand that has become everybody’s wardrobe staple of late. Personally we are feeling the styling which we think goes a little way to capture the style of some of the personalities behind the brand, perhaps what gave this brand the edge on it’s conception. If you’ve ever met them, they have a good thing for mixing military with sportswear with vintage and the rest that results in a team style that is classic, utilitarian and obviously Norse Projects.

If you are in London this weekend chances are you will be heading over to Notting Hill to celebrate Carnival. Everyone is getting a bit excited so we decided to put this exclusive mix together to help kick start your bank holiday.
Everybody is excited this weekend as it is Carnival Weekend. Two days of chaos, parties, food, drinks and ridiculously good vibes. To get you in the spirit our pal Nina Manandhar shares these awesome Carnival photos via Dazed Digital. Other great things that happened this week were Dean Blunt’s live performance from Art Space and a bunch of punk documentaries neatly collated in one handy place. Nice!

Levi’s Vintage Clothing have been upping the ante of recent with their visual output. If you’ve managed to see one of the seasonal hardback books they have been produced recently, you will know what a treat they are. If you haven’t – we recommend tracking them down. From the seasonal shoots executed with period precise photography and styling to the archive faithful illustrations they are a real gem and easily some of the best printed matter floating about the glut of brands output. Adding to this the team have created 3 neat animations featuring the work of Deanna Halsall and animated by Chris Sayer, showing 3 options on how to conceive your wear of your trusty jeans. The purist in us believes you shouldn’t wash ‘em, but if you need to heres how.

Towards the end of last week The Goodhood Store flew out to Copenhagen to attend Copenhagen Fashion Week to touch based with our good friends at Soulland, Norse Projects, Indigofera, Universal Works and more. On the Thursday night we were invited to a special opening (and closing) of the Soulland Katastrophe restaurant. Curated by the creative team behind Danish brand Soulland and run by top chef Adam Aamann the resturant was open for one night only to host and showcase the brands Spring Summer 2014, like many of the other guests we had no idea what to expect but excitement and anticipation was high.

The night kicked off with a menu consisted of six incredible tasting dishes all nodding to classic Danish cuisine. Ranging from steak tartar and crab bisque to vodka shots, pork belly and a deconstructed pancake. Along with a range of craft beers, super strong vodka cocktails and champagne, making sure the global gathering of guests were more than a little merry. As you walked into the restaurant both your taste buds and patience was tested as you caught an eye of what was to come (below photograph).

Once the dinner was over, Silas Adler (below left) with Jacob Kampp Berliner (below right) gave a short and to the point speach about how they liked to do things differently at Soulland and went on to present their SS14 collection pieces.

Along with the video presentation there was a live runway show taking place behind a glass wall (see below) as well as live bands, DJs and the rest. We would like to thank Soulland for the hospitality and we are super excited to offer the SS14 collection next year. The Soulland AW13 collection is available in-store now and only shortly.
