Fashion Fridays: Kingston Style x Caribbean Fashion Week 2012

Words by Emily Shapiro, Photos by Biggy Bigz—

Caribbean Fashion Week went down a few weeks ago and, while we weren’t able to make the trip, we can always count on Biggy Bigz’s Kingston Style blog to keep us up on JA style runnings, both at the street and runway level. Bigz caught shows by Cedella Marley (who debuted her swimsuit line High Tide, and designs for this year’s Jamaican Olympics team), Gavin Douglas, singer-turned-designer Ashley Martin, as well as The Cloth’s unveiling of its “Obeah” collection. He also snapped sideline shots of local fashion plates, and even Albert Minott of the Jolly Boys. Check out some of the highlights below, and head to Kingston Style for more.

Watch Me Now: Ranks & Grotesk

Words by Eddie STATS Houghton

buju

Seems like everybody is getting inspired by the look and sound of classic dancehall these days and as any graphic designer knows the purest form of flattery is to slap your inspiration onto a t-shirt. The very same day this FADER post put us up on the new UK-based line of tees called Ranks–as the name suggest it seems to be a series of tributes to top-ranking old-school deejays like Buju (above) Shabba (after the jump) and Ninjaman–we also lucked up on these recent beauties from NY-based Swiss designer Grotesk, which deftly illustrate more slippery abstract concepts like “Super-Clash” and “Soundboy Burial.” If there’s any justice in the dancehall universe, the next Ranks tribute will feature a portrait of Supercat and the next Grotesk edition will visualize the metaphysical aspects of “Cabin Stabbin’” with some lincoln logs and a dagger.
