Fast Forward: Neo Dia

If it’s not obvious already, I have a massive lady-crush on weird geometric clothing.  I don’t personally have much use for kooky dresses made of luxurious fabrics. However, if they were made in neoprene or that Kitchen Orange fabric (a stiff, fade resistant nylon/lycra blend), I would totally wear these out. Neo Dia is a collaboration between Gavin Lowes and Becky Chua (from RMIT in Australia), with strong architectural influences.  The red and the silver […]

Rewind: Geek Boutique

Geek Boutique ad 3

  In action: 1996 – 2005??? Designers: Jen Lindup, Scott Ciniello, Romana Knezevic HQ: Toronto Related companies: Ghetto Blaster, OK47, Geek Boutique Records   Geek Boutique was and still is hands down my favourite clothing company.  Being an amazonian at 5’1.5″, finding pants that fit, were flattering, and comfortable was a challenge (not to mention trying to fit my boobs).  GB was so uniquely consistent in the fit of their clothing, I could by anything and know […]

Vivienne Tam FW 2013 04

  Never really noticed Vivienne Tam’s stuff before, but this is totally what would have been worn on Blade Runner if it had been directed by Wong Kar Wai.  Ok, the print is kinda weird (it’s Obama in sunglasses?  wtf?) but there’s some killer outfits for the hacker-with-an-office-job. [Ed. note – mentally erase the belt from every look] I SO hope this says something vulgar.  I really like how the character essentially forms a belt. […]

Been wanting to do this since LovEvolution 2011 in Oakland. Alright, Ashley Madekwe (on some tv show or something) shows up at an underground party in an abandoned loft in NYC.  Stacey Pullen is rumored to be headlining.  Unfortunately, Ashley gets turned away at the door due to dress code violation.  Let’s see what Ashley could’ve done that would’ve gotten her a solid 6 hours of dance-time and likely free treats. First off, I’d probably […]

Rewind: Junglist 101

1999.07.16 : WEMF 99 : WHITE SANDS : SAUBLE BEACH F52

Patience my little grasshoppas, these posts take a while. After taking a pole of my jungle buddies, I’ve come up with a list of characteristic clothing items worn by old school junglists. While techno snobs look serious, junglists look tuff. As always post a comment with any additional suggestions.  Always looking for more/better pics.  Thanks to Toronto Jungle for keeping their shit online and in a relatively accessible format. 1. Cargo pants/capris/skirts (eg. UFOs) 2. Crack […]

This is a sweet-ass companion to this weeks earlier post on hoodies/zip ups.  Thanks to Small Things for the writeup on how she made it.  Recommended for a somewhat seasoned diy-er or beginner with balls. Small Things: Mustard Hoodie: The “Pattern”  

I’m officially a Twit.

February 18, 2013 at 1:22 pm

I’m officially a Twit. Yup, I caved.  You can follow me on twitter @thetechnosnob.  I’ll be posting stream of thought comments from various parties, while internet shopping, and whenever some douchebag DJ makes a stupid comment.  Pretty much just ripping on the current state of the EDM scene (from clothes, to people, to parties, to djs, to the music industry in general). Tumblr page is coming.  It will be set up so you can just […]
