We love you Lab 5!12 May 2010

We love you Lab 5! - Blog - TrendGiveAfuck

We got this letter the other day, which makes us both happy as well as giving me some guilty conscience that I haven’t worked harder on the TrendGiveAfuck project since I moved to London. Anyway, we just want to say that we think that Lab 5 is fab!

“Hej killar!

Tänkte bara strö lite rosor på er väg, jag gillar verkligen er idé!
Den är underbar och ni utför den på ett fantastiskt sätt! Hänger gärna på er och festar nån gång i framtiden!

// Madeleine (en av de fantastiska Lab 5)”

English:
“Hi, guys!

I just wanted to lay roses on your road – I really like your idea!
It’s wonderful and you execute it fantastically! (We’d/I’d) love to join you and party sometime in the future!

// Madeleine (of the fantastic Lab 5)”

In case you forgot, here are some pics of Lab 5 from our journeys:

The Keith Haring Foundation was established in 1989 to assist AIDS-related and children’s charities, and maintains the largest resource of archives on the late artist, Keith Haring – father pieces of pop art you all will recognise.

And I love his car.

I was visiting this vintage market on Brick Lane the other day. Had a conversation with this guy about interesting clothes to wear, like these mad pair of boots he actually was selling but unfortunately didn’t fit me.

It took me a good amount of time before I noticed that he was wearing clothes older than myself, including a top hat! Surely, being so confident in his own style that strangers don’t even notice him dressing a bit different is pure TrendGiveAfuck!

Shoes shoes shoes. We love’em, right? Nike knows this, and also knows that true artists love to express their unique style and so they created NIKEiD, where you can design your own shoes.

Go nuts and give your feet the stylish treatment they deserve!

What is style? - Blog - TrendGiveAfuck

I’m taking classes in communication and oral presentation, and recently I did a speech on the benefits of style. Writing the speech forced me to really dig in to this topic and think about why style is important. I found several good reasons for finding your own style and putting it on display, but for now I just want to share a really nice quote by American author Gore Vidal.

“Style is knowing who you are, what you want to say, and not giving a damn.”
