*sponsored video* SNOOP LION Originals

Some artists goes 360 (full circle). They start with a sound and get successfull with it by the public. Down the road they experiment new music and A) the fans are digging it or B) they are quickly forgotten.
The ones that stand out are the ones who have the ability to re-invent themselves without losing this particular sound and their fan base…
I think Snoop is one of them.
While he was in Jamaica he drops the “Dogg” on his name to be called Snoop Lion, and goes on performing reggae music. According to him the Rap game offer no longer a challenge so he wants to devote the rest of his career as being a Rastafarian and a Reggae artist. (I think secretly he was already as he rocks dem dreads and smoke buddah bless like one).
Hall of Fame artists RUN DMC made the adidas very popular among the hip hop community as they dedicated an entire song to the famous brand. As far as I can remember when I was a teenager my favourite sneakers were the Nastase. Nothing but a classic thang, baby !

Nowadays the brand with the 3 stripes had launch a serie of kicks that speaks to young and older generations alike…
In this sponsored post Snoop Lion is rocking the new Originals.

Smart move from the artist to gain a new fanbase cause nobody beats this lions!

This post has been sponsored by adidas but all thoughts are my own.

DESIGN-BY-DO


Beside my love for music I like fashion so I’d like to put the focus on this young designer called Doline Legrand, or just DO. Inspire by the beauty of Africa she create a line for women which I think get the attention of many. The concept is between painting, graphic design and fashion.

DO is an artist and graduate of Fine Arts University of Fine Arts.
Her wish is to move the painting out of the world of fashion to bring it in the street.
The paint is too often confined, enclosed by the space enclosed by canvas. It is too often rendered immobile by the exhibition spaces.

DO moves her paintings off the walls to introduce them into the world of fashion with textile as new support. Thus paintings began to travel …. the works themselves become mobile and walk the streets. Out of any predefined artistic universe, they are found mixed with the urban space with which they will then exchange, live, communicate and live together ….

In making her art nomad DO wishes “witness”, share, speak, addressing the others … This concept of mix can be found in the minds of his paintings that speak of Africa, between traditions and modernity.

Do is describing Africa with the image by mixing patterns and faces. The faces are increasing, interacting, merging. They are sometimes fabrics …. sometimes make up that reflect the beauty of Africa.
