Obama/Mao Mania: Not So Fast!

ObamaMao Obama/Mao Mania: Not So Fast!

I was tickled to see that news of Obama’s visit to China had inspired the folks there in many of the same ways his storybook rise captured the hearts of many Americans. The image here shows some of the t-shirts and other memorabilia that local shopkeepers started selling in advance of his arrival. But much like a NYPD clamp down on Chinatown shops selling fake Prada bags, the Chinese government fanned out and put an end to the sale of  t-shirts and other items holding up Barry as a modern-day version of Mao. Supposedly they were concerned Obama would be insulted by the comparison to the world’s most famous communist, but who knows. I don’t know nearly enough about Chinese politics/history to guess some of the hidden reasons. Meanwhile, now that the tees have been banned, there collectable status has just been raised four-fold (and yep, you can already find them on Ebay).

Vans has done a boatload of collabos this year, but I think I like this one the best so far. Not just cuz the Bad Brains were an amazing band that never got its due propers, but also cuz they’re a good fit with Vans. Makes sense somehow.

 United Tradeshow: UZI NYC

 What I liked about UZI was not only the punk edge the line  presentation , but also the fact that their graphics were very soft  and  not perfect  as if they were fading in to the tees… Based in BK they get kudos from us.

UK based girls streetwear label Not Bad For A Girl (NBFG) has just released their Holiday 2007 collection, which consists of t-shirts, crewneck sweaters and zip-up hoodies. In terms of brand building we see quite some similarities between NBFG and Married To The Mob. Lots of the designs are brand name based and centered around their key graphics. The outcome of this strategy is that the brands build strong brands around their clothing and immediate recognizability.

Anyways, check out the new NBFG releases after the jump.

Married To The MOB have released their Holiday 2007 collection today. The photoshoot was done this time with Mega, after the Fall collection was presented by French artist Fafi. The new collection consists once again of mainly t-shirts and also one fresh new hoodie.

We like what we are seeing, but would like to see the line grow to more pieces and styles, beyond t-shirts and hoodies. Hopefully that will happen by next year. For now check out the new collection after the jump.

London womens brand Not Bad For A Girl is slowly becoming the European counterpart to Married To The Mob. We definitely like what we are seeing from the girls.

Now they did not only launch a few new t-shirts in their online store, they also preview an exciting collaboration that will hit shelves Spring/Summer 2008. They got together with one of our favorite UK brands, Addict, to create some Method Zip hoodies. Addict is known for good quality, technical and solid work – that paired with the design skills of Not Bad For A Girl will for sure result in some interesting pieces to look out for.

Check out the collaboration and the latest Not Bad For A Girl releases in detail after the jump.
