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.

Kanye thinks he's turning Japanese

So, the hunt was on....Kanye West wore some white unnamed sneakers. Who makes them? When will they released? Are they 1 pair of 1?!

All stuff is under my radar...until I get an email...Ato Matsumoto puts himself on the hip hop map . Good or bad?

Not available outside of Japan (and we all know how hard it is to work out a Japanese website without a translator ;-) ) Ato's sneaker is described as "a stunning, functional and beautifully styled piece of footwear...and features 2 velcro straps and comes in a mix of patent leather and regular premium leather".

Not available till 2008 outside of Japan, *&^%$ store in the UK has an exclusive distribution deal on the sneaker...for a mere $600 you can have a pair, but's on sale now for $400! I think that's pretty good value if you're a US size 9. That's the smallest size available. Lucky, really as I'm a US size 8!!
