Comme des Garcons Comme des Garcons Collection by Rei Kawakubo & Brett Westfall

Comme des Garcons Comme des Garcons Collection by Rei Kawakubo & Brett Westfall

Guerrilla Store +1 213 proprietor Artist, Brett Westfall, and Comme des Garcons founder, Rei Kawakubo, recently got together for a collaborative venture for the Comme des Garcons Comme des Garcons collection for women. This extremely limited release is out now and is available at all Comme des Garcons’ stores worldwide, with the pieces making their way to Guerrilla Store +1 213 this month. The inspiration for this joint venture comes from Brett Westfall’s ‘Sherf’ installation exhibition that was held at Kazuo HQ in Downtown Los Angeles in June 2007. Men’s versions of the shirts will be produced through Westfall’s Unholy Matrimony label and the release of these will coincide with the arrival of the women’s versions by Kawakubo and Westfall. The Comme des Garcons Guerrilla Store +1 213 has put on some amazing functions since its occupation began back in February in Downtown Los Angeles, and another one will be held to celebrate the release of this particular collection. The original ‘Sherf/Fresh’ paintings will be exhibited at the release party and anyone is welcome to join. Details about this event will be released later on in the month.

Lupe Fiasco: Cold World

Lupe Fiasco: Cold World

The fact that Chicago native Lupe Fiasco once gave a shout out to HYPEBEAST in a fashion magazine feature on him, as well as the last track on his debut album not to mention he once had a blog on this very site that he updated frequently speaks volumes about his place in youth culture. It shows that he isn’t simply using the internet to his advantage as a slick marketing tool, rather he is of the generation that logs in every day, checks for new music, the latest clothes and kicks and news. This has endeared him to millions of fans that see themselves in the artist and makes him that much more relatable. However, Lupe knows all too well what a double edged sword the internet can be. Lupe’s debut album “Food and Liquor” leaked on the net months before its release date probably significantly cutting into the sales of the album. Also, last year Lupe was embroiled in a minor controversy concerning fumbling a few lyrics from his tribute to A Tribe Called Quest. Die hard Tribe fans hit the message boards and took aim like heat seeking missiles. But at the end of the day what it all comes down to is the music, and what cannot be denied is Lupes’ lyrical prowess. His ability to string together a shocking amount of similes and metaphors, his abstract rhyme structures and immense vocabulary has easily made him one of the top lyricists of today. This unreleased gem from “The Cool” entitled “Cold World” is another example of this. This is no longer the wave of the future; it’s the soundtrack of today. Listen to the track [HERE].
