Triple One!

Thursday, June 24th, 2010

Introducing the latest fashion boutique in AKL, NZ – Triple One Manufacturing Co. is Auckland’s premier destination for headwear and apparel from brands with roots in street art and design.

Fresh stuff in store, and the shop look and feel classy as you walk in! It’s the home of Cleatis Preston brand & ESHE brand….plus many more! Some rare collections in store, and I really love their hat selections, probably the best in Auckland! (my girl just scored one! yay!)  If you happen to be in Auckland, don’t forget to check them out(and my artworks) :-P

I like it when people go creative with toy photography, Stephen from TOMOPOP showed me some inspiring photos of Lil’ Death, check out his in-depth review of Lil’ Death! Graveyard seem like a perfect match for Hollow Threat videos! It may not be long until you see one, and when you do, you know that someone has shit his pants! :P
