AFTERWORLD: The Age of Tomorrow. Balenciaga Fall 2021
As we emerge from our cocoons of 2020 we’ll find some things the same yet many changed. Some futuristic, a bit of retro-vintage, Rave culture, maybe a bit of the Roaring 20s. This video filmed as a video game shows many of the trends to expect as we emerge from home bound to a combo of home and outta bound.
The more you watch this video the more you’ll see. Here are a few of the key takeaways:
- Your Avatar image melding into your Real Image of yourself. We’ll see people on the streetz looking more and more like their Zombie killer, Prince and Princess, Farmer, Cyber-Punk video game avatar. The imagined becomes real very quickly.
- Functional Tech-Wear: Less about showing off the features. But building in the sweat wicking, multi pocket, rain resistant clothing. The incorporation of the tech without showing it off.
- 90’s Rave Culture, as see in one of the Zones on the video. Neon Greens, Pinks and Orange. Mixed in with sombre blacks. Its either gonna be a 90s Rave, a 1960’s Psychedelic experience or a Roaring 20’s kind of year for some. Especially for the 16-30 year olds.
- Virtual Reality + Real Reality with a touch of Augmented Reality melding into ONE. Goes a bit back to the Avatar mentioned above. And Richard Branson going to space. Things will move, meld, change from the unreal life to the real faster than anyone could ever Imagine.
You’re sure to find even more hidden gems inf the Vid. Check out the Balenciaga Video Game Runway show below and let us know the trends you see in the comments section below. See you on the the Real Streetz…very soon!
A good video on Face Mask Wearing
Dr Seema Yasmin is very straight forward and knows what’s she’s talking about. Here’s a quick video on How to Wear your Face Mask. With a quick tutorial on How to make a Mask without sewing. Video Courtesy of WIRED.
Kicks in Vids
In Julia Michaels feat. Trippie Redd – Jump Video we see some nice triple stacked Adidas. Not sure if they are for sale or the NFRS?
Royce da 5’9 – Caterpillar feat Eminem, King Green – When Eminem FINALLY raps, he’s wearing the ultra high top AF1’s. Em’s always been a big Nike fan. Usually rockin’ the latest gear. Including his very own Jordan’s which go for 4k+.
The Vid’s pretty fun the way Eminem just stand there not moving. But when he comes on..Whoah! BAM, It’s on! (BTW: I can’t hear all the words but pretty sure it’s R Rated).
Dua Lipa’s – Blow Your Mind-Has 2018’s streetwear meets High Street on Fit. From Layers, to camo to slouch jacket, modernized Bombers to Big Jewels. It’s all in here. The only thing missing are the Triple S Balenciaga’s. They would have matched up nicely on Dua. Bonus: Banging, Ultra Catchy Hook on the Vid!
Drake-God’s Plan – We can’t leave you without playing this. It’s got to be the Biggest song of 2018. Even thought it’s now only May 2018. It already has 485,502,568 Views on YouTube! In regards to Kicks,I’m pretty sure I see some Triple S Balenciag’s in this vid. And you can see many alliterations of Jordan’s both Real and possibly some #realfake. Drake is donning Nike head to toe 100%. Rumor has it he is going to the dark side or Bright side (Adidas) Find it hard to believe since he’s such a big NIKE fan. There must be a story to this disfacuation from Nike. As of today, he’s still with Nike. But his logo has been coming and going on the new Jordan Raptors Kicks. So, we shall see if he stays or if he goes. Enjoy the Vid.
Enjoy the Weekend! See you on the Streetz!
Warren G ft. Nate Dogg | Regulate | Sesame Street Version
When it comes to a fun mash-up, this is straight up spot on. Bert and Ernie regulate the Sesame Streetz. Just wonder how long it took to make this? Looks like it was quite a project. Enjoy! And see you on the Streetz of Oahu this week.
Some Friday nights I’m so worn out, I just want to hear some party tunes. Here’s some New and Old Dancin’ tracks for the Weekend. Have a nice one! Don’t forget to take a few minutes to just dance.Found this track on one of my favorite sites: Shoes-Up.com. Rome Fortune with Dance:
And of course David Bowie. This is such a fun video to not only listen to but to watch. Love some of the nifty moves from around the world.David Bowie with Let’s Dance:
When I used to have a weekly TV Show entitled XcelR8TV, we did a really funny show where Don and I played this song one more time, then one more time, then…I played it the whole half hour with me VJ’ing seriously in between. Oh it was Winners. This is Daft Punk with One More Time:
And even though it’s a Friday, what’s a Dance Party without some Saturday Night Fever. Here’s the Bee Gees with Night Fever:
A little Ancient history. One of the first shirt designs I ever made was a blank T-Shirt with black magic marker written on it saying: FRANKIE SAYS DANCE. In honor of the upcoming Zoolander2 movie. Here’s the Original version of Frankie Goes to Hollywood with Relax (Don’t do it if you want to C…)
See you on the Streetz and of course the dance floor. Cheers and Aloha!
What’s Up Cali, Hawaii and England!
Today is full of vids from people I know and like. With Summer in full Effect, here’s a nice soundtrack to kick your day up a notch or 2. First up is Quiz ft. Alex Simone with Living for the Summer. Quiz is a bit of a sneakerhead like me, so make sure you check his kicks in the vid. (Note: I try to keep my blog pretty unexplicit, but today friends are doing the songs-And I want to hook them up with some SB exposure. So just warning you, there could be a few naughty words. Be prepared, there’s not many, but there are some).
I’m Not a Player, but I know a few.
Of course, what comes next is the OG version of the tune by Quiz. It’s Ice Cube with It Was a Good Day. Always a nice song to bang up loud when you might be feeling a little down.
Keeping in the LA vibe. Here’s Walter French with the City #LA ft. Glasses Malone and AV. If you go back to Quiz’s vid, you can see Walter doing a little cameo, sippin’ a bit of OJ from the red cup. And since we do a lot of Fashion and style posts on streetzblog. Many of you may really dig some of the outfits the ladies are wearing. I’m liking the bright colors of the clothes and especially the hats & hair. Nice, styling looking ladies.
Now back to Hawaii, it’s Kaipo Kapua with issue #9 of CAR-E-OKI with Common Kings. I can’t believe they’ve made 9 of these already. When do they sleep?
And closing the 2015 Summer Daylist-Playlist off, we head to England with one of my favorite’s of the Summer. It’s the Chemical Brothers ft Q-tip with Go. For some reason the bass line and hook on this just makes my day. Words a bit simple but the production on this will even make your computer sound like it’s been hacked by a Marshall Stack or a Beats Pill.
Have a nice week. See you on the streetz. Hoping your day is Fun and Fabulous! #rockstarliving
