A portrait of urban coolness

hip hop sm


In my opinion fashion always has a spot saved for hip-hop. I am a fan of this look as an expression of urban coolness...The only look (apart from Stella McCartney's line for Adidas) that gets away with a tracksuit bottom.This is Shantell Martin and she was at the Beyond the Valley event we attended last month.


Shantell is an amazing visual artist! I just visited her blog and watched the interview below, awesome:

I wonder why a pair of Jogging bottoms = hip hop. In a way I'm as far removed from hip hop as you can be..... mainly hanging out in the noise/experimental circles in Tokyo....?

But nice photo... Im not actually posing for once!
