Dammit, why didn’t I think of this when I played?

The lack of fashion posts probably makes you wonder why we include “fashion” in our blog description. Well, that’s on me, I promised to bring fashion to Chiside at least once a week, and I’ve failed to do so. And since Blake has trouble dressing himself, we can’t blame him for the lack of posts.
It’s a new day though, and from now on, be on the look out for a stronger effort from me in terms of covering fashion. I’ll post cool videos, stories, new lines coming out, anything I find. Feel free to give suggestions as well.
The post today is about the making of Nudie Jeans. Nudie specializes in raw and prewashed denim jeans, originating in Gothenburg, Sweden. The jeans are actually produced in Italy though, with denim fabrics coming in from the US, Japan, and Turkey. On the Nudie website, the production process is described as:
“Design goes beyond creating just a product that serves to fulfil a need or a function. The philosophy of Nudie Jeans is to become part of your dreams. Jeans have a natural built-in dream and attitude.”
Not really descriptive. But if you’re interested, here’s a video that details the whole process, start to finish. It’s insane to see the amount of specialization that is present all over the world, and the amount of work that goes into producing a single pair of jeans.

This whole CD is so good. Wounded Rhymes is the sophomore act from Sweden’s Lykke Li, and she kills it. You probably have heard the name before (Drake’s remix of “Little Bit” and N.A.S.A.’s “Gifted“) but you need to hear more of her. Rumored to be performing at this years Lollapalooza festival, Atlantic Chairman Max Lousada believes “she’ll be a hugely significant act globally.” Check her out as the cover girl for Spin’s March edition.
“Get Some” is heavy on tribal drums, and the lyrics find Lykke (pronounced Likk-ya) Li conflating herself with a prostitute as she writhes all over the track. Recently remixed by Beck as well as the Beastie Boys’ Mike D, I guarantee you’ll like this one.
