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.

Nike's Year of the Snake

Although, I'm anti corporations commercializing culture, if I have to turn a blind eye, it has to be Nike for its 12-year long effort in selling Chinese zodiac animal-themed sneakers.

This, being the Year of the Snake, Nike pulled no punches with its Shanghai release of a bunch of (ugly?) snake-inspired sneakers. This time the design team collaborated with Hong Kong's CLOT.

Nice to see London's Fraser Cooke in this Freshness video alongside Eddie Cruz (UNDFTD) and Edison Chen (Clot.)
