Versions drop 2

Producing this second installment has not been easy. Things took wayyyy longer than they should have, which is why it’s only coming out now. Small runs land you at the very bottom of the production line when it comes to cutting and sewing. Which is what we’ve done. I was aiming to have everything come out in one go but things have been trickling in bit by bit.

The tees above are direct to garment prints with photos of mine on ready made t-shirts from Montreal, but the tote bags, made in a double faced black/blue jean cloth, are designed by moi and produced locally. They come in a regular size, and an XL size too. Some have the blue on the outside, some black…

Basic unisex black, and, white tees as well as a sleeveless muscle tee (which I haven’t had time to shoot yet) just arrived. There’s some longsleeves and a couple wild cards on the way soon too so keep your eyes peeled when you come by.

Tylor Macmillan

After their stop-off at the Toronto Art Book earlier this summer folks behind Freaker Unlt and dd00gg paid us a little visit. I’d hit them up sometime in the spring and we decided to meet in person and see what’s what (they’re from Vancouver). We took whatever they had left; a few zines and some prints – which are sold out by now, BUT we just received a run of T-shirts from Tylor Macmillan (1/3 of dd00gg) aka News aka Deep Gnome (that’s his insta handle), and they come with a sweet newspaper poster (for free!) which is not shown here. Most of the above 6 designs also come in black and cost a measly $38.

Jodi & Alex

A selection from the 20 or so scents we carry by CDG.

•Gosha Rubchinskiy produced by Comme des Garçons.
Skateboarding on a summer day. Wheels burning on the hot. Concrete sidewalk. The smells of rubber and tar
colliding to create a scent of youth and freedom.

Angelica Root, Bucchu, Mandarin Seed, Blue Chamomile, Styrax, Haiti Vetiver, Patchouli.

•Comme des Garçons 2 plays with complements and contrasts… with reflection and opacity… with mirrors and brilliance… with light and shadow… with earth and the energy of the sun.

Ink, Incense, Amber, Labdanum, Patchouli, Chinese, Cedarwood, New Aldehydes, Cumin, Angelica Root, Vetiver, Cade Oil, Absolute Maté, Magnolia, Absolute Folia

•Floriental is a disrupted floral fragrance that challenges the traditions of perfumery to reimagine a flower that has no scent. A creative collision that blurs the lines between the floral and the oriental to create something completely new. An odourless flower is given life, a virtual scent imagined: enigmatic, contrasted, intense.

Labdanum, lavish sandalwood, vetiver, incense, pink pepper and plum liqueur.

 

*These images were put together by Alex Blouin, a regular collaborator of mine, and his lovely girlfriend Jodi Heartz. They just moved a few blocks from the studio, and bought a new light kit they were trying out. We had a nice afternoon of shooting, them on one side of the space and Chris and I on the other (that shoot is below). Keep your eyeballs peeled for more whimsical product shots from this dynamic-duo.

Chris and I met some 5 years ago and I always thought he’d be great to shoot. Thing is he’s a photo taker himself, so I wasn’t so keen on asking him. Years went by. More recently we’d been discussing the prospect of getting some of his work in the shop for our print section – so when he came by to drop stuff off last weekend I proposed the idea. He was hesitant but interested. I said “you can choose what to wear from the shop, you know, stuff you would normally wear, and we’ll shoot that”. He agreed. We met in my studio the following day, these are the result of all that.
