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 Top of a classic!

Where you you in 1979? I was in Bristol, England playing Top Trump Horror Cards in the school yard. I should've been noticing that adidas released its Top Ten basketball sneaker! :)

Now, in 1979 I was 'yeh-high' and wasn't playing basketball of any sort. But, today, I recognize the dope, old skool design. (Actually, adidas' website pointed out the finer details of the shoe!) The pivot point might look like a circle on the rubber sole, but it was a big deal on the ball courts in the '70s!

I got my "lifestyle" snakeskin Top Tens about a decade ago. I still haven't worn them. Now adidas has released a whole Top Ten collection with a vintage feel and a contemporary twist. Check out the Top Ten sweatshirt. Nice, but not as cool as my retro '80s My Adidas Run DMC sweat!

Strike a pose  Along with this Top Ten re-release adidas has a competition tied into a cool mobile photo app. You can win the chance to shoot the next catalog. The app runs in your phone's web browser and lets you take a pic and then add a custom filter. Check out my effort below!
