Left Brain and Domo Genesis stopped by the shop earlier in the day and came out rocking some nice tees at their show in Boston.

Thanks to the Seyna at Crane.tv for coming by and featuring us on their site.

“Boston’s most revolutionary concept store is located in a grocery store – strange but true. Crane.tv enters Bodega through its vending machine-like door as partner Oliver Mak takes us on a tour of the store and shows off his collection of limited edition footwear, streetwear, and the latest innovations in gadgets and accessories. And if you can’t get enough of Bodega, it’s also involved in a number of exciting art programmes throughout the city.”

Sorry For The Wait

A Lil’ while back, Marissa Flores (stylist for Lil Wayne) came by and picked up a bunch of Bedwin pieces.

On Lil’ Wayne’s recent stop in Scranton, Pennsylvania he was spotted rocking “The Kids Tee” that I did with help from Ed Cabrera. If you like what you see check out the stock in our web shop here.

Memories lurk everywhere in the basement of bodega. We came across our first season of tees from five years ago and unearthed the dated Mars Deadman Tee that came out back in the day … I did this one with help from Winston & Julia

This saturday, 6.25.11, we are releasing the retro tee online and instore. It retails for $35 and comes with a keychain pictured.

“I Love My Bike” Book Release Party

Danielle and myself are in this book!

The Marc Jacobs location on Newbury Street in Boston will be playing host to the book release party for “I Love My Bike” later this week.  This project was brought to life by our friends, Matt Finkle and Brittain Sullivan, who visited various parts of the country to create this photo compilation book of bike lovers.   Support these guys and purchase your copy of “I Love My Bike” here.  For more information head over to www.ilovemybike.com and check out the video below to get the gist of how they went about gathering the stories and photographs behind this project.

Upcoming – Me + Bean Snowboards + Project SF 12/3

Playing records for this Bean Snowboards party featuring the artwork of my good friends Dana Woulfe, Nick Z…..should be a fun and at least the music won’t suck.

Old Blend By Me (Kryptonite dub step)

Equals

kryptonite (gucci vuitton edit) .mp3

Dirty South rap and dubstep (and dub in general) fit together so well that it’s kinda stupid. That squincy jones mixtape from 2006 was the inspiration to do this one. It’s a good listen still in 2010. Definitely demo version. This is for Esteban who still encourages me to make more shit.

Behind The Scenes With Gear Collective Showroom

BIKE CHECK 212 | 02 JARAH from cycleangelo on Vimeo.

HOW DO YOU MAKE MONEY?

I am co-owner of a cycling inspired fashion showroom, Gear Collective. I like to think I make money by helping others reach the world with their creativity.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LINE ? KEY PIECES?

Tough one. I always think in the mens world because thats my work. For myself, I’d have to say Insight. They make the sickest dresses for girls like me who refuse to wear heels and always go for the sneakers with dress look.

WHAT DO YOU LOOK FOR IN A BRANDS YOU CONSIDER REPPING?

First, I have to love the product and the quality has to be on point. Then, its all about making sure that the brand can support the retailers with marketing initiatives, producing on time, and being prepared to support growth.

WHAT UNIFIES THE LINES YOU REP?

Every brand we work with have some form of cycling/ active lifestyle element. From the bike specific bags by Bruxe to the discrete details for cyclist in the visually contemporary exterior of Martin Clothing to the snug fit and wrap around style in Contego Eyewear.
We have a brand we just brought in that has lots more awesome cycling appeal. Stay tuned for that here:

WHAT’S GOOD ABOUT THE INDUSTRY?

My favorite part of the industry is the relationships I’ve made with buyers, co-workers, stylist, interns, etc. I feel that its unlike any other industry because we have a common tie not only in business but in our personal style and creative inspirations. I grew up in the fashion industry though so maybe thats why I see the industry as family.

WHICH TRENDS ARE GOOD /SUCK?

Oh don’t get me started… I’m a white tank and jeans kind of girl, but I’m a sucker for military inspired trends. I could really do without the style of dressing like your grandparents and the high waisted pants (especially in menswear….gross.)

WHAT’s UP WITH YOUR BIKE COLLECTION?

I have sold all but one, my purple Continuum Cycles custom 48cm track frame on Velocity deep V wheels with gatorskin tires (toughest for NYC streets), odyssey black widow cranks (VERY hard to find 150mm because im tiny), pink Chris King limited edition “pretty and strong” headset, Thompson X4 stem, and Lino bull horn bars. Can you tell I love my bike?

WHERE’S THE BEST PLACE TO EAT A TACO IN BROOKLYN? BEST PARTY?

Hands down it’s Taco Chulo in Williamsburg. I have no clue about parties. I consider riding my bike all night to be enough of a social life for me.

WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE SHOP(S)?

Alter in Brooklyn, Chari and Co. NYC, and Standard in Atlanta

WHICH GOLDEN GIRL ARE YOU?

Sofia for sure! Quick witted, politically incorrect, fearless, and so little that people never expect what’s coming with her.

WHAT’S THE LAST TATTOO YOU GOT?

A week ago I had 3 hours done on my back. I have had a total of 47 hours on it now. We are re-doing whats already there because its been 9 years and then finishing it. In a couple months, it will be the longest project of my life finally completed thanks to Vinny Romanelli.

WHAT CAN WE EXPECT FROM GEAR COLLECTIVE IN 2011?

Expect awesome gear! I believe we will be workings with several innovative brands and introducing more bike specific wearables and soft goods. We have a Gear Collective artist project in the works also that I can’t wait to share more about!

IF A FALCON AND YOUR DOG GOT INTO A FIGHT, WHICH WOULD WIN AND WHY?

Little Dude would come out on top and I think he would win by sexually abusing the Falcon since his most favorite activity with any animal he sees is exactly that. His theme song, “Little Dude, you’re so rude” is very appropriate!
