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.

Double Goose, double the choice

The timeless style of a leather goose down "buff" jacket has been the topic of several of my blog entries. I can't help it, I get into these buying sprees whenever I see my size (small.)

The v-stitching is my favorite. And I still wake in a cold sweat for not picking up one of the v-stitch sleeveless vests that were sold in a store in Soho, London in the 90s. So, prompted by some recent Facebook chatter amongst my mates (Dexter, it's your fault!), I ended up discovering the nylon v-stitch bomber from the rejuvenated Double Goose brand.

Double Goose, Wellgosh store

The Double Goose has undergone a renaissance which I had happily ignored until now! After all, why get a new goose jacket when you have the original old one? Unless of course it's improved in some way...and a nylon shell is that improvement. Not only is it more weatherproof, but it's also lighter. And for of you that know me, it's cheaper too! ;) Wellgosh in the Midlands area of England has put itself on the map by stocking these very limited availability jackets.

Pop Up, Poppin'! If you were lucky enough to be in New York this winter you would have had the chance to visit the Double Goose pop-up store in the Reed Annex space. This flying visit is becoming a habit as this is the third year such a shopping event has been organized. Open till December 22nd!

For the third year, Double Goose @ Reed Annex, NYC
