One of our favorite Japanese imports, retailer Uniqlo, is about to set up shop in Paris’s infamous retailer, colette (no relation to our Colette). The temporary pop up shop runs from August through September.
Uniqlo is a Japanese retailer specializing metropolitan urban city wear and hip design heavy packaging. If you are ever in New York, drop by their NYC location. They also take the prize for having the most crazily confusing and possibly longest site on the web. The NYC location has been a long supporter of Om. They also have perhaps some of the most unique and hilarious marketing campaigns.
Visit www.uniqlo.com to check out possibly the most content heavy, longest website, and find out more about the Uniqlo x Colette pop up store.

Known for his hit remixes for artist like Little Boots, Estelle, Kid Sister, Empire of The Sun, and many more, Treasure Fingers has won the hearts of both hipster and house bloggers alike. We don’t really wear skinny jeans, but we’d gladly throw on a pear while listening to this remix.
I know I risk offending a handful of you, but I just can’t resist. Progressive trance god (?), Paul Oakenfold, has produced Madonna’s new track. So what? They’ve just released this music video teaser and it’s hilarious. Oakenfold makes a cameo with a dance move that can only be described as a set up to a “fist pump”.
What’s the heck is up with him? Too much trance in the Ed Hardy pants!
They were the second most played track on tastemaker radio station KCRWonly after Radiohead. Their relentless tour schedule had them circling the US gradually playing larger and larger venues as more cities and dates were added. They topped everyone’s favorite list for bands you probably don’t know about. They eventually caught the attention of DJ Shadow and TV On The Radio, who later asked them to open for them on the US tour. All of this without US distribution of their record.
Little Dragon’s new album “Machine Dreams” is a pop / electronic masterpiece! The tracks that have already leaked are a nice preview for what’s to come. This Swedish quartet has become one of my favorite groups. Pick it up on iTunes.
