Touching upon timelessness and universality, Kanye West together with Adidas Originals released their Autumn/Winter 2015 collection during this season's NYFW. We love how each individual piece speaks for itself - allowing for endless combinations, as Mr. West himself puts it: the world's first "solution-based" clothing line. Creativity for everyone - contemporary, yet minimal and basic. What do you think?

Abigail is born to create

image10 This week's #BTC is a blogger who is determined to provide a voice for others through her own. Abigail Rayson started up My Girls Tour with ambitions to create a platform for the young community to express and engage in multiple facets of life.

Despite the under 21s having a love for travel, and the majority being in full-time education, I feel that young adults are being made to choose between entertainment and information. But why should we? After all, the trends and styles that we are learning about and wearing, were they not originally created by new fresh minds? Are they not some of the best emerging artists, researchers and professionals fresh out of college? Why, as vibrant multi-faceted demographic, are we taught to seperate culture from fun and careers from creativity?

- Abigail Rayson

The content on My Girls Tour is all original. Abigail uses herself and her life as the subject matter and explains that in many aspects it becomes "a subconscious performance". She allows for the environment in which she places herself, to constantly change, but makes sure that she remains the same - true to her mission.

Carrying a work of art is easy

"All ingenious is easy" - a quote that perfectly depicts the motto of Alisa Kovtunova, the creative personality turning luxurious hand bags into unique pieces for special clients. A team of artists at Art Buro "Make 1t Easy"  develop completely new, bright images, printing them onto bags, taking luggage to the next level. For a look that stands out, designers in Kiev and Moscow, use special technology and the drawings and paintings of professionals. Believe it or not, these delicate looking handbags are resistant to damage and moisture!

To place your order, all you need to do is contact the managers with a complete idea of what it is you want. Don't be afraid if you're having trouble deciding on an image for your bag - designers will help you customise a model perfect for you. After approving the model, you need to be patient, as orders are processed for about 2­3 weeks, depending on the complexity of the chosen artwork. If you're in Kiev or Moscow, the courier personally takes the order and delivers it to you! In any case, if you are a fan of "Make 1t Easy" from another city around the world, no need to worry - the brand works with DHL and other courier services as well. Despite being an exclusive, and recently created brand, "Make 1t Easy" has already become very popular thanks to its utmost creative and skilful team. You can be sure that Alisa and Art Buro make it easy for you to create your own personally artistic bag :).

All for one and one for all

A while back we started introducing new artists every week - ones that we collaborate with or are inspired by. Last week was all about that soft singer/songwriter sound, this week we're bringing back the hardcore and raw, more specifically - a mixture of Logic, A Tribe Called Quest and Yelawolf. Yes, a flow that you will rock your boat. A few weeks ago StreetRacer Productions met Joshua Andrew Boyer, more commonly known as DOSENATION, a South Jersey rapper striving for something bigger than just the fame and success of his own words. From 2007 to today the solid work has paid off and you will find Joshua across the web, on many different platforms - growing his nation. We've had the pleasure of learning a bit more about the artist and his vision, keep reading and you'll see why this rapper has so much more to give!

What is your earliest memory of music, and how has it impacted you?

My earliest memory of music is watching my Uncle Steve make beats in his apartment. I was so fascinated with how everything worked that I became eager to learn the language of music at any cost. This Art had me at Hello.

Who are some of your greatest influencers, and who do you hope to one day influence?

My greatest influences are A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul and B.I.G. I hope one day to influence our youth into doing the right thing and spreading a message through music. Drop beats not bombs.

What do you think sets it apart from all the other great rappers/artists out there?

What sets me apart from the rest of the artist are that I never spit the same flow. I have the ability to switch it up in a moments notice and not think twice about it. I've always seen it like this "Create your own lane, competition can't compete with originality"! I have the ability to connect with people by the masses. Being a artist your fans need to be your number one priority, without them you are NOTHING.

What can we expect to hear and see from DOSENATION in the near future?

This year will be filled with a lot of Shows (expect a great time with a lot of excitement,energy and good vibes), my clothing, contest held by me, meet-and-greets and a possible tour (as of right now my locations are NJ|PA|NY). I am very excited for what the future holds.

What are three things you cannot live without?

There are only 3 things in this life I cannot live without and that is my family, music and God. I find faith in all of them, become part of something bigger than this life, follow the movement and become part of the nation #DOSENATION.

Timely Fashion

Lately I have been hunting for the right kind of arm candy. Not only does it have to be timeless, it also has to make a statement - a statement that embodies your style. Watches can be much like shoes, one of those accessories that either makes or breaks your outfit. Here are a few styles that SRP has been keeping an eye on... Most of them appear to be somewhat unisex, with a larger, bold face, yet with classic style and color. We're a big fan of Triwa and Daniel Wellington watches, which is what you are seeing below. What's your kind of arm candy?

Who needs clothes

By no means am I a fashion connoisseur or a fashion guru. I appreciate what I feel is good taste in clothes and love to see fun, new, and creative ideas when it comes to fashion. In my opinion its really all about the person and what clothes they make look good, not the other way around. On the other side someone who does have an eye for fashion and style is Olivia Do who started her own company, "Ardour" with best friend Suzie Chudzik.

Founders and best friends, Olivia Do and Suzie Chudzik launched Ardour while conquering the business world in 2013. What started out as daily chats of needing something more than the 9-5 grind, eventually turned into an entrepreneurial journey. Ardour is a unique online fashion boutique delivering good vibes through a bohemian electric style. Music, art, culture and each adventure we encounter drives our inspiration day and night. Our ambition derives from a strong desire to live a life we love, as well as instill this desire for change within each of you. Ultimately, we're here to deliver the wildly ambitious styles we live for!

Thoughtfully Passionate

Picking up from where we left off - talking about contemplation and creative thinking. I've had the honor to accompany our StreetRacer producer, WajuBeats on a journey through Philadelphia's Academy of Art, a place for inspiration and beauty. Entering the building is like stepping into a cocoon of talent, and it is easy soak up the vibe and walk away feeling artfully rejuvenated.

New ideas are constantly being sparked. Currently we have a few projects up our sleeves, surprises for you to absorb what you see and hear in new ways. Consider how music influences your life, how it intensifies your emotions, and alters what your see. How do you consume your environment with your earphones in, blasting your favorite song? We are in a state of toying with this idea...share with us your thoughts!

Let The Party Begin

9zo15x-l OOTD-is-Kenzo-Zouiten-1

 

New Year's Eve - a time for festivities, promises and new beginnings... But what to wear? Let us take you through some of the trends for the perfect New Year's Eve look. With a Scandinavian background, I tend to gravitate towards a lot of European fashion. Kenza Zuiten with her own line of clothes, Ivy Revel, brings the sparkle and glam to any New Year's Even party. We love the sharp blue in contrast with the lusciously curly hair! However, you might be someone who likes something a little more subdued. The little black dress is a perfect option, but not always the easiest to find. We love Swedish blogger, Elin Kling's advice on Acne Studios black satin silk dress. You can never go wrong with simple and sexy!

If you're a guy reading this, wondering what to wear, and thinking how ladies always seem to have a million options, don't fret. You too can spice things up and look your freshest this New Year! For this year's party we are into the skinny tie. Yes that's right, no more fat bulky shiny ones. Also, dare to be different, switch out the traditional black dress wear to a deep plum or purple. It just doesn't get any better than that!

I hope you have voted for your favorite artists in the Underrated Rapper contest! We are now down to our final 5 - who do you think should take home the trophy? To take a listen go to www.therealstreetracers.com and VOTE. On another note... I would like to introduce you to one of the artists competing in our contest: Laze, a unique talent part of The Trinity, a rap group based out of Newark, NJ. I was fortunate enough to get in touch with Laze to ask him a few questions about him and his team's company, Gifted Miinds, providing us with a fresh outlook on clothing and music.

giftedmiinds

How did you start your music career?

Gifted Miinds started their career in 2011, all it took was 1 upload on youtube and the reaction from the public. All of our 6 recording artist developed thru a pen and a pad or just a instrumental and rhymes of the top. The Gifted Miinds eclectic group the Trinity has been the face of music since 2011 who include artist Lokii Jay, Lotus and Laze. The Trinity have been creating a buzz with the help of the Gifted Team, performing at gigs, and promoting online. The rest of our recording artist Pharoah, Wize, and Profit have been working on their come up as they hit up the GM studio working on new music. The Newark NJ, based group is sure to bring a new essence to the culture with their rhymes and clothing, be sure to check us out www.GiftedMiinds.com

What is your first memory/encounter with music?

There is a limitless amount of memories in this family, we aren't only a group we are family wether it be just hanging in the basement and freestyling a crazy verse, a funny scene shooting a video, or rocking a crazy show. The most memorable encounter we've experience was our 1st performance at Union County College NJ. It was our 1st show, and there was 2 prizes, $100 from the judges and $50 from the crowd, we were the winners for both prizes taking the $150 home that night! We Performed our track called Armageddon and the crowd immediately connected, we also threw free shirts for the crowd they loved it and so did we, by far that is our most memorable. #JERSEY

Tell me a little bit about the idea behind your group - Gifted Miinds? 

The idea behind Gifted Miinds is to connect with the world all the gifted people out there, most importantly our YOUTH. The Gifted is a reference of our talents, our movement, and most importantly our fans, and Miinds includes the double "ii" to reference the groups logo the 2 brained alien that sums up together "Gifted Miinds". We all have a gift, sometimes we feel discourage because of where we come from, the daily struggles we face, or the way we are made specially in our hometown Newark NJ. The ideal purpose and heart of this movement is to inspire the youth, guide them through our music and open their eyes and mind to the world, stick up for Jersey and walk with them thru their life and welcome them to walk along with ours musically.

What inspires you on a daily basis?

    Our inspiration is everything. Where we started and where we stand is an inspiration, the love from fans, our family, and the life in Jersey. The drive comes from our personal struggles, we all have a story to tell, we all have a point to come across, we all have someone to reach out to, we all have lost before, and are searching to gain thru our passion and live through our dreams. You inspire me.

How did you start getting involved with fashion/merchandise? What year did you release the brand?

We first got started with our brand and designing late 2011, we designed through an iPad and sketches and officially released our brand on April 2012 dropping the GM Alien snapback design. Since, we have been producing and have released, sweaters, t-shirts, pins, beanies, and snapbacks for our customers. The brand was created as another outlet for the music to get to consumers, to show a different talent in our art and to give our fans high quality designed products at an affordable price, not for the gain of money but a connection which is richer than anything in this world. All designs are created in-house by Laze and the GM crew. The Newark based brand has gained exposure through music and online sells touching grounds like NY, Texas, Maryland, VA, LA, NJ, all the way to the UK and growing daily. Be sure to check out our clothing. "We all have a Gifted, Lets Wear it"

What are some of your proudest accomplishments over the past couple of years?

One of the proudest accomplishments would be when kids messaged us and said they're dream is to meet us, or how we inspired them to do music. Another one is the faith we give people, the strength of believe they shower us with, claiming we are the future for Jersey, it's what means most to us. 

What are the future plans for Gifted Miinds?

Gifted Miinds Entertainment will be releasing new music from our artist, new videos and clothing. We hope to keep reaching out to people across the world and inspiring the youth. Our plan is to be the future, the best is yet to come. follow us, one love, one Gifted. #Giftedmiinds

Stay tuned for more Gifted Miinds...
