Discussion in 'Streetwear and Denim' started by LA Guy, May 15, 2015.
I have this:
Think of all the possibilities.
It's a good site for info about denim, and also possibly the worst rebranding I've seen in a minute. "Heddels" sounds like a company that sells crappy sweaters and cut rate dinnerware.
I feel like a lot of this depends on the architecture of the building in the first place. If you live in an old craftsman-style home, it would be weird to fill it up with mid-century furnishings.
I think we share the same taste in furniture and architecture, but if you live in some metropolitan downtown area, some old American craftsman home might not be open to you, so mid-century stuff might make more sense.
I stumble upon this because of 3sixteen mentioned above
so uh... since we are on topic of furniture. what sort of discipline is this and is it popular over there?
Agreed on both points. Some good articles, but the name is terrible.
Rustic modernism or something like that, it is basically an evolution of the whole hipster crafts thing. It's becoming more and more popular in Europe, so I would imaging its very popular in the US.
is there any established designers within that discipline? what is the overarching attitude behind it? I really don't see any value that I can appreciate, it just look cheap and lazily put together. and from the interview they seem to regard carpentry and design as simpler than they actually are?
starting to see something similar to those here (SE Asia), so I'm wondering how the trend begun and how did it get mainstream exposure and reach
Bacon, beards, Harley bobbers, farm-to-table, unvarnished wood, crafts-for-the-sake-of-crafs - yep, that pretty much sums it all up.
It's how "metro" got scruffy. Though I rue the term, many are calling this modern aesthetic "lumbersexual." Others are calling it the "American Heritage Revival." I am no expert, but it seems to have evolved over the last decade or so as a result of hipsters learning about the many f***ed up practices that go into the manufacturing of modern goods, foods and clothing - and regressing to the aesthetics they feel represent an earlier era, "when 'American made' stood for quality" and when trade/manufacturing practices were far simpler and more straightforward. There are now countless boutiques with selvedge denim, distressed leather and some form of motorcycle paraphernalia in the window supporting this ethos.
Secondly, I wouldn't be surprised if there was some sociocultural impact from the high rate of divorce among the middle-to-upper-middle-class families that gave rise to many of today's American young adults. As the wives often get custody, a male role model was missing for countless youngsters. Upon reaching adulthood, beards and flannel may represent a sort of overcompensatory expression of a psychological longing for masculine direction.
#1 Christmas gift idea for these guys (other than a pair of Wolverine 1,000 mile 744 LTDs) would be a leather-bound edition of "Walden" by Henry David Thoreau. For added irony, throw in a packet of seeds.
Fucking. The word you're looking for is fucking.
Agreed. Rawr Denim was a perfectly cromulent name, regardless of how broad or narrow their focus. Moreover, they just swapped out a name that included the word denim for a name that makes an obscure reference to denim, so it's not even indicative of a brand identity that extends beyond denim, which it sounds like was the whole idea in the first place.
Am I the only one with a shameful fondness for British Utility furniture?
used to be rawrdenim, but for somereason they changed the name
edit - someone above me said it first.
I sometimes wonder if I should bother to hate on trends simply because they differ from my tastes and area able to be captured in a few accurate stereotypes.
That blog post makes some amusing points, but is also quite clearly coming from an overtly diminutive perspective.
