We love that Gosha is colorful, radical and exudes creativity. A fashion antihero for those who don’t understand…

Some things are not meant to be understood so easily…

The world keeps turning. Things change, however they stay the same…

03

Be colourful. Stay charismatic, avant garde, unique, alien to the status quo. Gosha understands this…

 

 

04
The beauty of feeling, the pain of rebellion. Keep an open mind. Expand the psyche…

What if Larry Clark got really old and decided he had way too much shit in his house and needed to sell some rare stuff? Like rare photographs? Would you be into

that? Could that be real?

“all the kids that come to my shows in thousands and could never afford 10 to 15 thousand dollars for a print (…) this is a pay back to all the skate rats and

collectors who would like a souvenir so I can die happy.”- Larry Clark

A look through the pages of the final issue of one of coolest, subversive art magazines to emerge from Europe.

 

Avant Garde 00
 

In the late 1960′s a man by the name of Ralph Ginzburg collaborated with a graphic designer Herb Lubalin on art book/magazine called Avant Garde. The French

publication would last 14 issues between the years of 1968 and 1971. It was a magazine that was popular in certain elitist social circles, as well as popular in the

advertising and fashion world due to its graphic images and what was then considered subversive writing.

Avant Garde 02
 

Avant Garde featured amazing existential art, often times with themes that touched upon science, and science fiction. One of the reasons this magazine quietly

passed through the hands of American graphic designers, fashion houses and advertising firms was due to the mind expanding imagery.

 

Avant Garde 03
 

Avant Garde didn’t last very long, but it did have a lasting impact. The font for the magazine’s logo was created by Herb Lubalin and would outlast the publication by

becoming a standard font used by many advertising agencies, and later computer programs.

From time to time you may spot some of these issues at thrift shops, flea markets or yard sales. If you see them laying about we highly suggest you take a gander.

One of the main reasons the publication lasted as long as it did was because it was considered an inspiration magazine for those select few who were in the know.

Famously Avant Garde was a known commodity to the world’s top fashion photographers, and art directors who found it useful for editorial inspiration.

One of the most famed jazz pianists, Tsuyoshi Yamamoto’s 1974 album Blues for Tee is here in its entirety for your listening pleasure.

Yamamoto was still a few years away from his biggest hit (when we say biggest we mean most recognizable outside of Japan) Midnight Sugar. He was one of the many great

players for Japan’s Three Blind Mice imprint. Enjoy the music wherever you are…
