Pogo does it again

That musical master Pogo has weaved some more magic. This time he has created an original track using nothing but his mother's vocals and sounds recorded in her garden. Brilliant.

Check out the interview we did with Pogo last year.

Pages Digital giveaway

We've teamed up with those delectable peoples over at Pages Digital to do a giveaway in celebration of the launch of our SS10/11 collection - Made in Space.

To get your hands on some free shit all you have to do is click here to go through to the Pages website and answer a simple question.

My favourite answer so far is the one to do with spam. To be honest I don't actually know exactly what spam is but I gather it is some kind of meat in a can. And that gives me the heebie jeebies. Kind of like the thought of seeing Rosie O'Donnell naked...

Bradon Boyd

Brandon Boyd is my hero. Probably best known for his role as the frontman of Incubus, he is also a photographer, poet, surfer and all-round overachiever.

Here is an interview at an exhibition in L.A where he gives insight into his work 'Ectoplasm'. It's the only Brandon Boyd interview I have ever seen where the interviewer doesn't actually know who he is...which I think is kind of endearing.

Leah Dieterich

Leah Dieterich is an American writer and director that runs a blog called thxthxthx, in which she writes a thank you letter every day.

She also wrote and directed a short film called Prioritaire...which is very Amélie-esque. And that is a high compliment to pay.

Pop Up Store @ The Eastern

Tomorrow night our gear will feature at a pop-up store at The Eastern in Bondi Junction.

Check it out:

As you can see we are not headlining this event. We are way down in the small print. If this was a music festival and we were big-time rockstars we would throw the biggest hissyfit tantrum about why we are not further up the flyer with bold font and big shiny letters. But we are not big-time rockstars. We are lowly struggling clothing designers. So come down tomorrow night and pick up some discounted threads. A portion of every dollar you spend goes to building a new well in a clothing designer's studio so they can have clean water and hope for the future. Please give generously.

Godzilla Goes to Paris

The dashing peoples over at Godzilla Goes to Paris are currently featuring our new Made in Space collection.

In the past month alone the Godzilla team have covered the likes of Splendour in the Grass, Saint Augustine Academy, XII Letter, Recreational Jewellery and the great man Jonathan Zawada so you know they've got their finger on the pulse.

If you've got a pulse you should probably cruise on over and check out their site.

Anyway we thought we would draw you some pictures of what we think would happen if Godzilla did go to Paris...

Here is Godzilla waiting in line for coffee. He has heard this guy makes a good latte.

Here is Godzilla lying down on the outskirts of Paris. He has indigestion from eating too many baguettes. You can tell he is on the outskirts because the Eiffel Tower is so far in the distance.

Here is Godzilla making sweet passionate love to giant lady called Rhonda that he met on the Champs Elysees. Paris is, after all, the City of Love. Rhonda is leaning against a traffic light for is not easy being taken from behind by a 300-foot monster. Godzilla said he would call Rhonda but he never did.

We hope you enjoyed Godzilla's adventures around Paris as much as you will enjoy adventuring around Godzilla Goes to Paris.

Record Preserve Share

We're currently being featured on the impossibly addictive design and culture blog Record Preserve Share.

If you're not aware of Record Preserve Share...well you should be. Its manifesto reads a little something like this:
Ferris Bueller probably said it best: "Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it."
Record | Preserve | Share is dedicated to capturing moments of insight, inspiration and random creativity. It aims to showcase the collision of art, design, street culture, technology, popular culture (and other such flights of fancy) in a time of frenetic evolution.
Dirk Van Graver is the man responsible for both Record Preserve Share and my hour and a half of procrastination every time I click onto his site for what I tell myself will just be two minutes.

Check it out.

ps speaking of Ferris Bueller how stunning was Mia Sara in that movie?

I know right?!

Eleventh Commandment spring/summer 10-11 collection - Made in Space

We're super excited to bring you the first proper look at our new spring/summer 10-11 collection - Made in Space. The below images are just a hint of everything that we have produced for this range. This chapter in the Eleventh Commandment saga experiments with the most premium fabrics such as cotton, viscose, modal, drill, nylon and denim to bring you a wardrobe full of threads that are guaranteed to increase your skills as both a cage-fighting ninja and culinary extraordinaire. You'll still be rubbish at most other things in life but hey, we're not miracle workers.

The Made in Space collection is a huge step forward in both size and detail, featuring men's and women's jeans, tees, dresses, shorts, bodysuits, boardies, chinos and singlets. At 120 pieces I'm sure you'll agree it's a pretty expansive range. In fact it's amazing we've even had time to put it together, considering the countless hours Henry spends each week reading to deaf children as well as the time Josh dedicates to helping old ladies cross the road.

First summer will hit stores September 1st while second summer will drop December 1st.

We are also offering a 20% discount to those that want to pre-order Made in Space. All you have to do is email with the subject line 'Made in Space pre-order'. We will send you an order guide and as soon as your garments have been produced they will be sent straight to your door. Unless of course you're which case we'll figure something else out. Orders must be submitted by June 1st.

Guerilla street art

Cyclists in Berlin did a fantastic job of re-decorating Rosenthaler Platz by dumping paint at the intersection. Simple, subversive, brilliant.
