I like: Stüssy World Tribe Tokyo Meeting

Classic James Lebon production from 1991 with all the usual suspects including Alex ‘Baby’ Turnbull (of Ronin Records and 23Skidoo fame) and Hiroshi Fujiwara (Major Force Records and Fragment Design).

I like: Chicken Cottage t-shirt

This subversion of the classic Chanel crossed-c logo by associating it with Chicken Cottage, a familar brand on the high street of neighbourhoods in south and east London.
Chicken Cottage
It reminded me of the t-shirts sported at raves that subverted brands, but for the dubstep generation.

I like: Canon at London Fashion Week

Canon did some nice activities at London Fashion week to highlight their brand and talk about the EOS M – which is their answer to the mirrorless cameras with interchangable lenses built around the micro four thirds standard.

The micro four thirds standard blurs the product differentiation between point-and-shoot cameras and entry-level digital SLR cameras.

Combining fashion bloggers with the passion of photography was a smart move; a nice PR campaign which I imagine involved a lot of work to achieve the high production values of the content.
