Stevio...LA LA Lovin' It?

I'm British-born Chinese from Bristol, UK. I’m LA-based. I’m a hip hop aficionado. After 15 years in London I moved to LA to pursue a new career and outlook on life.

Back in the 80s I was a DJ. In the 90s I contributed to the world's first street style exhibition at London's Victoria & Albert Museum. In 2011, I had my first interviews published. Today, I’m keeping busy with music, art, photos and writing.

adidas 'run tings'

Who needs eBay when you've got the adidas Originals store nearby?

I got my haircut at Rudy's this weekend and always wander into the adidas store to check things out afterwards. And was it worth it...I found the 'rasta' satin track top I was fiending over on eBay. I love it! It was $70 less than eBay too.

What wasn't so cheap was the 'Sign of Times' retro leather baseball jacket that was in store. $600 smackers..Lord 'ave mercy! This jacket was in NYC when I first visited in 1989. The leather on the retro is soft, the toweling stars dope, but $600 can buy you a trip to China where they make that shite! Come on...Hey, if it gets anywhere near $300 you know I'm picking that freshness up!

Have you seen the 'Cities' campaign that adidas has launched? Selected cities around the world are the center of a new range of apparel and sneakers. Here are some pics of the range... I'm not saying it's cool (I think the shoes are a bit wack), but take a look yourself. adidas could've done better on the "I heart London/New York/Beijing" etc. t-shirts.
