The Kilo/Rocksmith team are real dudes (Kenshin, Eric, Nate & Ralph / apologies if I left anyone out). I am a big supporter of them not only as a brand but as people and artists. They are respectful and humble and not pretentious or hostile like so many people in the scene. That’s real talk, and something I think people need to give more attention to. As always, alot of wack people get way too much shine. Anyway….
I recently posted photos from their Spring 08 launch at Lotus. Nicole Nelch and partner Dedan of the newly formed super promoter duo,WhiteGold did their thing putting this event together, while Mano, Morsy and Yamez crushed it on the one and twos all night.
The Sprng line is hella sick with styles ranging from crazy and colorful to muted and less flashy. This is great for a guy like me who looks real stupid in flashy gear. But if you can swing the ill bright colors and hypnotic patters, Kilo/Rocksmith can hold you down for sure.
While in the offices in Dumbo, I also had the honor of meeting with Osamu Koyama, the Owner and Creative director of a seriously dope jewelry brand, Complete Technique. Mostly likely you have seen his work on various people around the city. In fact, you will see some pieces in the photos I have posted here and on my web site. His partner, Jen aka Diamond Girl, who many of you know from the Format blogs was also in the house looking hella hot. She modeled in some of the limo shots which are top secret right now. Stayed tuned tho, they may just appear as an ad very soon. We’ll see.
Anyway, here are some shots from the night.
