NYPD at it's finest!



We have all heard about police brutality. This is beyond any scope of police work, not to mention complete lack of professionalism. In a aggressive situation, police are suppose to be on top of their game...

This is a sad moment for the NYPD, shame on you!

Age is but only a number



We all are children at heart, check out this installment of what adults do when they're confronted with childhood reelections.

“71% of adults used to play on the streets when they were young. 21% of children do so now. Are we designing children and play out of the public realm?

This project is a study into different ways of bringing play back into public space. It focuses on ways of incorporating incidental play in the public realm by not so much as having separate play equipment that dictates the users but by using existing furniture and architectural elements that indicate playful behaviour for all.

It asks us to question the current framework for public space and whether it is sufficient while also giving permission for young people to play in public.

Play as you go…” Bruno Taylor."

Karl Kani on the "Notorious" movie set...

Fox Searchlight is bringing the late rap icon, the Notorious B.I.G., to the big screen! Biggie rocked Kani gear and put him in his lyrics, so it only made sense for Biggie to wear some Kani clothing in the movie!
Mr. Kani happened to be in New York while they were filming so he stopped by to check it out. On the set Karl hung out with Biggie's mother, Voletta Wallace, who's efforts made the film possible.

Jamal Woolard, a Brooklyn-based rapper, will play Biggie (seen with Karl Kani below).

AND THE WINNER IS.... NIKI!!!

The official model of the month is Niki! She definately represented on the Kani runway! Congratulations Niki!!!
