Styling and Profiling with Junkprints: Summer 2010

For a moment just forget the fact that it is the beginning of hurricane season and remember that summer has unofficially begun (Summer Solstice is on June 21, 2010). Why not slatter on some sunblick, showoff those gams, and celebrate summer with Junkprints. *Shameless Plug Coming............................................................................... .............................................................. ....................................now* Below are a few hot items to make you look cool in the summer:
We all know you had second and third servings of the mac and cheese on Memorial Day. You worked hard for that donk, so why not show it off in what are soon to be your "Fave Shorts". The are made with seersucker fabric, trimmed in a custom junkprints pok-a-dot fabric with bright pink thread.
Sorry, Justin but we brought sexy back with these authentic vintage Cazel Collection shades. Coming straight from a closed factory in Germany these sunnies have not been in production in over twenty years and are in great condition. There is only one is stock. Can you say stunner?
Matilda is the greatest friend you will ever have. She compliments your style and deals with all your heavy baggage. This 100% cotton canvas tote bag has plenty of room to carry everything you need when you are on the go.
Reminisce on the days when even guys wore short shorts with this tank inspired by old track jerseys. Even if you were always the last kid to get picked for dodgeball at least your grown now and can look the part of a real athlete at your school reunion. Atheletic ability not included.
No outfit is complete without a fly pair of shoes. We've teamed up with Keds and ArtsProjekt to create these Royal Hi-tops for you. Sorry fellas, but these sneaks are only available in women's sizes. Then again, what you do on your own time is none of our business. Werq!

WHERE DID MY WEEK GO?

Sorry folks. Well let me fill ya'll in. I've been working on the Brooklyn Bodega site. Don't forget to get those Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival tickets. I'm planning on renegading the Roots Picnic with Junkprints stuff (yay the beginning of the JP road trips) and thought it was this weekend so I made a trillion of these wallets, but it's next (time to get my helmet adjusted). I've fallen in love with Yams at Grunge Cake Crisis magazine. Take a look at this video she did on me...it's a nice day and I'm super giddy. Chanel Kennebrew, Owner of Junkprints.com X GrungeCake! from The GrungeCake Crisis World Mag on Vimeo. I'm taking a cont. ed Flash class...It's beena while since I've been in school and I must admit I'ma  bit rusty at being a student, but my teacher is a fabulous flash guru and of geniouses existed, I'd def be one after this class.

TODAY’S WORD IS ‘NARCISSISM’

nar⋅cis⋅sism –noun 1.inordinate fascination with oneself; excessive self-love; vanity. 2. Psychoanalysis. erotic gratification derived from admiration of one's own physical or mental attributes, being a normal condition at the infantile level of personality development. I think that we are all narcissistic. We could have never agreed to terms of normality without some narcissism. Narcissism is what we use to gauge our aesthetics,  social groups, and general behavior. It's the reason why folks of color are constantly feel like they are under represented/ mis-represented in the media. We want something to identify with, not tokenism or sidekicks. Things are changing and that's good. But it's wild that Obama is considered Black and not white...when he's both. I guess it's because of the U.S.'s narcissism views. Ya'll know I try and design with social relevance so I present to you Matilda. She's prob not gonna save the world or patch up the economy but She's cute, silly, is made in my own image (just like you to J.C .some would say), and I relate to her. Hope you do too.
