Bikini jeans

Do you sometimes get frustrated that you have to choose between wearing a bikini and wearing jeans? Are you tired of not being able to show off your tacky ass tattoo? Do you sometimes wish you could make it look like your underwear was sticking out of your jeans, even when you're not wearing any underwear at all?

Well ladies your prayers have been answered....

Introducing Sanna's 'Bikini jeans':

If you are so inclined you can actually purchase these 'jeans' here. (Camel-toe sold separately).

Looking like white trash has never been so easy...

Denim makes me feel funny in my special place

Here are some images from a recent shoot by Black Dahlia stylist Anna Raju.

Eleventh Commandment women's Muse jeans (raw).

Eleventh Commandment women's Rhapsody in Blue jeans.

Both of these styles are massively reduced at the moment. But there are only a few left so you better hotfoot it to the online store if you want to snap them up before they're gone.

This would be funny if it wasn't so sad

This is the most 'car wreck' photo I have seen in a while. It's the type of thing that makes you laugh openly while simultaneously feeling that instant rush of nausea. Although I warn you close inspection may be detrimental to your mental health, it is the type of image that will ultimately leave you feeling contented with the realisation that maybe you're not that weird after all.

I'm not trying to be hater. Some people might say this guy deserves congratulations for working so hard to obtain his goal. The same people would probably think it is fantastic when an anorexic girl reaches her goal weight of 22kgs. It's just not healthy.

Or maybe I'm just jealous cos I'm a skinny white boy. Better go hit the gym.

Kid Kenobi & MC Shureshock in Eleventh Commandment

Australian dance music icons Kid Kenobi and MC Shureshock are gracing the cover of the latest 3D World. I would def recommend grabbing a copy or jumping over to the 3D World website to have a read of the article, in which the boys discuss the past 10 years working together as well as their upcoming Ten EP national tour.

Here is a shot of the cover. Kid Kenobi wears Eleventh Commandment 'Nouveauhemian' jeans. MC Shureshock wears Eleventh Commandment 'Navaho' jeans.

And here are a couple of other images from a recent shoot, featuring Shureshock in both our Lightning singlet (white) and Definition singlet (black).

Taxicab Poetry

On the way to Parklife a few weeks back the girl and I were lucky enough to hitch a ride with the best cab driver ever. Far from the typical angry foreign middle-aged male cabbie that I usually seem to lure, Chris Walters was a cheery woman that also happened to be an amateur poet. And for the brief ride to the event she entertained with a rendition of a poem she had written for her friend, singer Gail Page.

Afterwards we asked her to send us the poem, which she did. We then called the cab company and told them it was the best cab ride we ever had and that she should get a raise.

Here is my favourite verse of her poem:

In deep rich tones of smokey honey blue
I bet this woman gets right inside of you
From the fathoms of the oceans
She stirs your emotions
Circling like a shark
Just before dark
You feel all your senses as if you have only been born
And it seems that your soul has really been torn
you feel so alive though something has died
all you really want is some place to hide
Just when you think there isnt any harm
There is only calm
Her voice rises through the ashes like a Phoenix with power
Then she cuts through the stratosphere
There's no moment like now
Soaring into the heavens I'm lost with her soul
It seems all my organs are orbiting out of control
With tears in my eyes
I hear My Thunderbird's cries
And like a wounded creature I let out a moan
Gail is undoubtedly in a league of her own
I whisper her name, it echoes into the night
And I pray for her dreams with all of my might

And a video of Gail Page doing her thing:

For more on Gail head over here. For more on Chris head to the closest footpath, stick your thumb out and hope for the best.

Mecho reviews Door 121 media showing

OK so we haven't actually officially released this range yet but last week we took part in the Door 121 media showings to launch our winter 2011 collection - Made in the Future. We had a fantastic response by all the media that attended, which included representatives from the likes of Russh, Grazia, Oyster, Cosmopolitan and Pedestrian to name but a few.

The trendsetting peeps at Mecho also made an appearance, and have just posted an article reviewing the event. They have selected three standouts from all the designers that displayed collections on the day, including First Born, The Twelfth Letter and us.

You can check out the full article here.

We will be back with more information on the new Made in the Future collection soon, but for now check out what Mecho has to say and get ready for what is going to be another huge step forward for Eleventh Commandment :)

Stephen Colbert roasts George Bush in person

This happened at the White House press corps dinner in 2006. So yeah maybe I'm a little slow as I just stumbled across it but still it's pretty incredible. In fact I can't believe it happened.

Bravo Stephen Colbert. If I ever meet you I'm going to buy you a happy meal.
