Huge news for Best Of The Week this week.. that is right the long awaited ‘album’ from Jai Paul has arrived on the internet. 16 tracks packed full of sunny London, glorious pop gold. In other news photographer Sanna Charles leads us inside the sweaty, hairy realms of Slayer concerts and Monocle take us on a trip around the fascinating highrise buildings of Chai Wan on the outskirts of downtown Hong Kong.
Here’s a great video showcasing a day in the life of W-Taps creator Tet. As part of the Neighbourhood family, the video shows him rolling about to and from work on a motorbike and then skateboard, it seems a fairly lucid lifestyle, something i’m sure we could all learn from here in the daily drama of London!
Here’s a little of what to expect from the on coming Perks & Mini SS13 Women’s collection – Black Gold. As usual prints and layers play a big role in creating this Japanese bag lady on mushrooms look. A firm favourite here at Goodhood, PAM are a label that continuously push the boundaries and exhibit their fair share of irreverence. Believe!
Where has best of the week been? I hear you cry! Well things have been so busy at The Goodhood Store recently, what with the Life Store Opening, Book Launches and hundreds of amazing products appearing in-store and online there just has not been time to see what the rest of the world has gotten up to… until today! that’s right.. a Saturday, a day to kick back, relax and go surfing, here are three things you should check out:
1. Joshua Gorden’s photography, it is great and he has taken some sweet shots of
The Goodhood Store, take a look at his super consistent work here.
2. Our pals in Vondelpark released their debut album and it is killer… obviously
3. If you have never visited Sanforized you are in for a treat… vintage vintage vintage
We had the team at Hypebeast pass through the new Life Store last week to take some shots of our new space and speak us about the ideas behind the store and how it has evolved since opening The Goodhood Store back in 2007.
This Thursday sees the launch of the new book by Daniel Cronin, titled The Gathering Of The Juggalos. Each summer, thousands of Juggalos from around the world congregate at a privately owned campground on the Illinois border of the Ohio River to party. But what are Juggalos? I hear you ask.. well Juggalos is a name given to fans of Insane Clown Posse or any other Psychopathic Records hip hop group. “The Gathering Of The Juggalos” is an intimate, never before captured portrait of the Gathering and showcases images of men, women, and children sitting in tents and cars, swimming in a brackish lake, painting each other’s faces and, often, staring back at the camera communicating their defiance and pride. The Goodhood Store Launches The Gathering Of The Juggalos hardback book on 4th April from 6:30pm at The Goodhood Store 41 Coronet Street, London N1 4PL. Traditional Juggalo cocktails will be served. All welcome.
