Arah on YouTube: Dior Stussy Fall 2020 Runway Show | Reaction & Review (Surfer Type Beat)

Soon as I heard this was happening I locked in instantly to set up my cam. After a very hard video I made about Dior Jordan I thought this would make up for it and I was very surprised to put it in words. Some good looks and I always love the tailoring now we are looking at colour texture and creativity of the cut.

I can always trust Dior for the classic Parisian and Kim Jones for the monogram print to tie together to make a great reinterpretation of all the things we love from berets to sports jackets to boots coats and totes.

The man who is new to this whole fashion realm has Dior as a great entry point and when you look deeper has depth layers and the advanced intricacies that can only bought about by a house that has been around for the better part of a century.

As menswear evolves so does the clientele and the amount of men involved, as more men get involved in fashion the more time and space there will be for him to get to learn what makes Dior Dior. And Kim Jones holds those principles as his play thing as they are transmuted into something that entertains the eyes as well as the bodies

A Thought On: What the Greatest People on Earth do

Bless up from your feet to your head top

We go again,

One of the sentiments that I had to grow up with was this intense sense of being a hard worker, doing your best and have something to show for it. The doing your best but it still being a b or c grade wasn’t enough it was you done your all and everything there was to do because you knew it all.

Yes now that’s the most intense pressure a human can be under to know it all and apply 100% effort to those things with precise execution and tremendous performance and effort.

However having that in your psyche as an adult if you could really get with it and have it become part of the fabric of your personality puts you in a zone without many people existing in it.

You study the most you practice the most you perform the most everyday with laser focus and an eye for the one true goal, doing your best and having something to show. Many people let go of that sentiment as kids because why would you do that but perfectionists grab hold of it. Know they’re not that good and do their all to be better, eventually when you look to the left and to the right of you there aren’t many people there but the people who are like minded.

Execution is fun, winning is fun, performing at the highest level is fun, the pressure doesn’t exist because you’re enjoying doing your best because you’re performing on a level many people don’t have the wherewithal to perform under.

You have your principles of performance and you find avenues to the greatest ways of winning. Your charisma takes you places others can’t stand because pressure is non existent because you’ve lived under the circumstances so long.

Much like a power lifter who does the most your warm up or cool down is many people’s max or personal best. Living in this state of focus pressure and performance isn’t for the faint of heart and accolades wait at the top for people who have the enchantment of love for this way of life.

I couldn’t live without it. Knowing there’s people out here who live this way gives me a fire for wanting to do more, the motivation to be at the top and giving your all till you’re empty every time is something reserved for the people who will stop at nothing to get it. That sounds like a great place to be.

Arah on YouTube: FIRST LOOK – Dior X Jordan & Adidas X Prada – REACTION

I have held back my criticisms for quite some time waiting for something more to come along after a year of no critiques I came to my tipping point. After seeing Dior and Prada’s trainer offerings I’ve decided to start the dialogue and hope we all get better at creating

We need more allowance for creativity and an exception for fashion houses who exemplify this, not necessarily get back to the old ways but really people digging down and creating the clothes they’d like to see in the world & There only seems to be a few houses doing that today and the rest fall by the wayside

During the next decade I’m going to be sharing much more of what I love to see and kind of making people understand what they’re seen isn’t in fact the true authenticity.

A Dialogue On: The culture of the 20’s 2

Bless Up from your feet to your head top

We Go Again,

MAILING LIST

I’ve established many times what I have thought about the 20’s for so long I haven’t been looking to many people individually to make up the greatness of the 20’s but with Black Renaissance: Future History there are some names in there who’s paths I see myself crossing.

I see the opportunity for greatness right there for me, I have been told for the majority of my life there’s greatness there. It never took, I always searched within myself to see if a human good enough existed to create wellness for all, as that’s all I have ever wanted.

So many people have the opportunity to be great during this moment, the time we have in front of us is paramount, many of the people in their 20’s in the twenties have the chance to make a real name for themselves and create their own opportunity and life and own their careers if they truly are about it.

This is the thing we all have to take this time period serious. And accept what we see infront of us with open arms because the chance to be great is right there. So is the work though, so many people are scared of the work. Not even just the big picture vision, like me so many people are annoyed and feel put off by the little things you have to drop for the greatness.

Normality is a ditch, a warm and cozy one. You have walls the warmth of the hive mind and the unattainable sky to look to but never grasp because it’s so out of reach. And in greatness we have to dig deep and dig far, look crazy in the process because the ditch of normalcy is so cozy what’s the point in going further down. But us who know there has got to be something down there when you dig further down only so you can go up the long way. In doing that you look completely crazy to the Normal crowd but you’ve got to know deep in you having the normal things isn’t all there is to life.

Black Renaissance: Future History — Are You Even Outside, THE GREAT (british) DIASPORA #PrimeNYT

Bless up from your feet to your head top

We Go Again, Hello Comrades,

MAILING LIST

Disclaimer. This isn’t the whole of the UK this is only what’s visible to me. I’m sure there are long standing businesses that have been flourishing however you don’t know what you don’t see and hopefully this can be a way to see these people show themselves.

At this time so much of what I speak about is the culture of Britain and the people who use the information highway to communicate, I feel that in this part I would like to talk about when where and how we congregate. Be where we are, in London there’s a big idea going on; we understand collectivity, connection and a safe spaces;, London didn’t offer for us. so a couple of black 20 something’s so few stepped up to the plate and created functions with quality offerings.

But first.

Shoobs

The marketplace and home where almost all tickets are sold owned by a black business woman on her hustle and well on her way to the top this app served us best when wanting to give a brand these events hosts can trust.

Recess

A casual night for people who don’t want to be constrained by the false standards of central London clubs, based somewhere in the north and Shoreditch for a while. Recess made it into my eye-line just by friends who are on Twitter and want to go out however it’s all the way in north so can’t be travelled by me often. It gives you real house party vibes which I enjoy.

Jays Link Up

Jays gives off exactly the same vibe as recess super casual and fully open for people who don’t want to be held back by the dumb nature of club nights not owned by black people and instead is in place for people who want to have a good night filled with games and good music we all know and love. Curated very well I enjoy the atmosphere they bring to the scene

Days Like This, Brunch

Great for summer days for those that like a more dressed up day. More impress and less smart, the idea is to come for fun with cocktails and vibes. Never been. But from what I’ve heard it’s quite enjoyable, everyone dresses up, something light and comfortable and looks like a night I’d enjoy.

NNESAGA

One of few games nights I know my friends to go to dedicated to serving a social setting purely for people who love to play computer games, watch film, comics & manga, cartoons & anime, it’s as space made by people you know so it’s catered to the needs of the individuals around them. So it’s everything the people who enjoy those things want.

Faded & Lux

A night that I feel many people know about due to the podcast the hosts share together, Marvin and TazerBlack host a parties on Saturday(Faded) and Sunday(Lux) respectively. Somewhat spaces for a somewhat older crowd who want a nice night out dressed a little “smarter” or impressionable. Lux being the only one I’ve been to, is a quaint games night for a calm Sunday with some good music and good food.

Love in the City & Project Impact.

Both nights made to meet people for a cool date or linkup, as in speed dating and drinks. For business purposes or something a little more personal both these nights curate moments for people to interact. Dressing with your best foot forward you’re prompted to get to know people through games or natural conversation, nothing too forced as the place is set to get to know who you need to know. Black professionals who need a night out to be fruitful and not just a vibe usually go here and have fun. Project impact I know has been a long-standing event (2012) deserves its own article over all but this is only a list.


Editors Notes

That’s my short intro to some of the place I know where you can catch a vibe or meet likeminded people. So many of these nights I know are used by people who want to be able to see their twitter friends in real life or conveniently meet their person of
