Brick Lane In Art: The Other Side

This is a portrait of a street and an area – as seen by artists, particularly street artists, and others who live and work or even just visit here. I wanted to shoot a social documentary which would frame the street, its life, and the complex web in which it operates. I wanted to hear the area’s “official” stories. And of course the other side of those stories.

I started filming in the fall of 2009. Seems a long time ago. And so this little trailer is a quiet announcement that we are serious about the final edit now…Watch this space I guess. Filmed in London, Paris, Berlin and Madrid. Yeah.. Brick Lane is a long street.

Thanks to all the artists. For your participation and most importantly for your art.

Dr. Martens 1461 shoes – Sceptered Isle

Dr. Martens 1461 shoes – Sceptered Isle

Dr. Martens is the stuff of legends. It all began near Munich, Germany in 1945 when Dr. Klaus Maertens injured his foot in a skiing accident in the Bavarian Alps. To make walking easier during the healing process, he designed a shoe with an air-cushioned sole. Using old rubber tires, he constructed soles that had air trapped within closed compartments. He showed his prototype to his engineer/inventor friend, Dr. Herbert Funck, and together they decided to develop and produce the shoes. Not only did the shoe solve the doctor’s immediate problem, but it also started to sell well in Germany.

By 1959 the two decided that they needed a company to produce and distribute the shoes, then called Dr. Maertens, in other parts of the world. At first, many manufacturers rejected the concept of an ‘air cushioned sole’ as a short-lived gimmick. However, the R. Griggs Group, located in the village of Wollaston in England, decided to go along with the idea by creating the first work boot with the revolutionary sole. On the first of April 1960, the first cherry red eight-eyelet work boot was produced and named 1460 (1/4/60). To sell the brand name better in England, the name was anglicized to Dr. Martens. The range was branded AirWair and the rest is history.

Stone Island Reflective Jacket


Today we publish a presentation video for our Reflective Jacket. This jacket, as our fans know, is one of Stone Island iconic pieces. Since the early Nineties, we have introduced the concept of light refractivity, borrowed from safety work garments. The Reflective fabric is highly refractive, thanks to a coating procedure made with thousands of glass micro-spheres.

Spring Summer 2011 look book for ROYAL HEM

Spring Summer 2011 look book for ROYAL HEM

The new Royal Hem collection for Spring Summer 2011 is inspired by the work of Roy Lichtenstein: Brushstroke Still Life with VII “(1996), a work that the designer has perceived as the perfect representation of a conjunction between refinement and naturalness, ranging from brilliant to dusty shades, and a play on geometric shapes and micro designs.

The Royal Hem collection is essentially the transposition of these themes from canvas to actual wearable garments. The result is a line of unique artisan pieces “Made in Italy” that complement, innovate and renovate the wardrobe of a Royal Hem man: from the dyed satin smoking jacket, to the jackets in ultra-lightweight wool and starched silk, to the blazers in gabardine and linen characterized by minimal patterns such as micro houndstooth, bird’s eye and striped patterns in perfect “LICHTENSTEIN STYLE”. This kind of stylistic rigor had and continues to distinguish Royal Hem’s signature pieces, an example of which is tamed by brushstrokes and splashes of color creating a unique and exclusive piece.


As in the painting, the colors used range from dusty shades of blue, to sand and gray, tones that saturate to reach colors such as china blue, dove gray, brown and finally absolute black. To complete the array of proposed colors, institutional shade of red and sage green also feature.

To compliment and complete the collection a capsule line featuring a a handful of pieces was created using innovative dyeing techniques such: ice, super-vintage and art dyes, and glucose washes. The stylistic evolution towards ever lighter and softer garments is clearly evident: the jackets, cornerstones of the Marche based Italian Maison, are emptied and deconstructed, the fit becoming even slimmer to the point of becoming an exclusive “shirt-jacket”. In addition the collection also boasts some selected trench coats, blazers and picots complemented by exclusive t-shirts, shirts and denim trousers.

Barker Black Spring/Summer 2011

Barker Black Spring/Summer 2011

English shoe brand Barker Black has released a new line of footwear for the Spring/Summer 2011 season in new styles and colors. The line will consist of leather high-top sneakers, embroidered slippers in washed linen or woven silk wool and moccasins in luxurious suede – all offered in an array of vivid colors.

Starting in March, the Spring/Summer 2011 line of footwear, in its new three distinct styles will be available at Barker Black stores nationwide.

Barker Black Shoes

Barker Black is the epitome of English refinement. Established in the village of Earls Barton in 1880 by Arthur Barker, the factory quickly became renowned for their craftsmen and fine workmanship. Specializing in the “Good Year Welted” construction, the shoes became a staple in the wardrobe of every self-respecting Englishman. After 125 years of producing quality bench made shoes in a factory christened by the Queen mum herself, Barker Black has been developed to embrace the storied past while forging ahead in design, details, and elegant sophistication.

A foundation of quality construction, craftsmanship and modern design is the launch pad for Barker Black. Barker Black shoes are created by a team of specialized craftsmen, many of whom have been working with the company over twenty years. Harnessing this expertise, quality and attention to detail, along with its contemporary design, is what makes Barker Black so special. These sleek and luxurious shoes, made from the finest Italian and French Calf, are left on the last for fifteen to thirty days, during this time the shoes are placed in a wire frame (affectionately referred to as the ‘cage’) and suspended from the rafters above the factory. This extensive time on the last allows the shoe to retain its beautiful shape. All Barker Black shoes are finished by hand, on select shoes the skull and crossbone logo is painstakingly tacked into the sole by hand.

Raising the standards of excellence in design, materials and construction the Barker Black range will be on par with Northampton neighbors, however through its updated sensibility and modern aesthetic, Barker Black will stand on its own.

Gilded Age Fall/Winter 2011 Collection

Gilded Age Fall/Winter 2011 Collection

New York Fashion Week – Gilded Age – Fall/Winter 2011 Presentation

In the early 19th century, the South become the world’s major producer of raw cotton, while the North embraced the Industrial Revolution utilizing deep seaports and building industries along East Coast. The North East become the industrial power house of America.

Gilded Age Pants

In a relatively short period of time, new textile mills started to emerge in New England helped by low cost cotton gin and low production cost stemming from the influx of immigrant workers.

The production of new textiles, such as jean and denim, became one of the fastest growing industries. Denim proved to be very durable and resilient to wear, and became the fabric of choice for dungarees and jackets for great multitudes of factory workers, miners and farmers as America expanded westwards. As denim became a fabric of greater importance, mills across New England with their new looms, spinning machines and new indigo dying processes became leaders in the industry, producing some of the best denim known at the time.

The textile innovators at the dawn of the Gilded Age worked on unique cotton processing and indigo dying techniques which produced some of the most unique denims of the Age. Known for their durability, distinct shade and finer slubby nature denims such as “New Creek Blue” and “Madison River Brown”, and “Boston Blue” were recognized as some of the best in the early parts of Industrial Revolution and Gilded Age.

Gilded Age Jacket

Textile merchants, such as East Coast Warehouse, greatly improved their fortunes while selling these distinct denims. With an onslaught of wider, faster, and more precise looms that cater to mass production, some of these age old textiles with their unique character slowly disappeared from the market place.

The Gilded Age brand is an attempt to bring to the present a small part of the craft that originated in the Age of Gild.

UVT Presents: WIVES TALES Part 1

On February 25th, we will be taking over our good friends at Black Scale’s space to debut our Spring ’11 collection for our first Pop Up Shop. We’ve always gotten so much love from the Bay, it was only right that we chose it for our first foray out of Southern California.

Of all the things UVT has grown to become, and be involved with, the foundation has and always will be about our Family. We wouldn’t be where we are now without the help from our friends. Whether its help setting up for the hardcore shows we used to throw at the shop, or inspiring us with their talents, our crew has been our lifeblood.

So with this in mind, to coincide with the opening of the pop up shop, UVT co-founder Glory curated “Wive’s Tales”, a showcase of three tattoo artists who we have seen grow to the top of their game and can truly be called UVT family. Featuring Luke Wessman, Menso, and Frankie Caraccioli, each artist created a piece that speaks on superstitions and folk tales, and we have created a video series to introduce each artist to our extended family-all of our loyal supporters. We will be making limited edition product based on the pieces that will be available at the opening, including shirts, fleece, hats and prints.
