Six Eight Seven Six T-shirt & Book Bag.

Six Eight Seven Six and  Rebel Reel Cine Club commemorative T shirt & Tote bag. To mark the screening of Jean-Luc Godard’s Film “Weekend” on May 5th 2022 at the Archway Tavern London.

In an interview with Alain Jouffroy in 1966, Godard explicitly summarized his use of blue-white-red and the significance he intended to give it: “I believe a little in nationalism, but in a nationalism of poetry, not at all political: I like that Delacroix is French and Beethoven is German…”. And “Do you believe in the soul of a people? ” asks Jouffroy.“I can’t express it that way because it sounds a bit too big, but it is a bit that.” 

The imperfect and handmade look of the letterforms, the bad kerning, the large gaps between letters and words, the justified blocks of text, the awkwardly dotted capital I’s. Even when he used an existing typeface – like Antique Olive in ‘Week end’ (1967) – the letterforms look as if they were cut out with an Exacto knife.

Obra Footwear : Work / Construction / Work of Art

MANUFACTURING

The OBRA sneakers are manufactured in Brazil in a family-held factory founded in 1948. Over the years the OBRA factory has built a reputation for product excellence and steadfast business practices.

Beyond quality, our manufacturing partners are also committed to their qualified workforce’s well being.

While this means OBRA sneakers cost more to produce, we are proud to be part of and to contribute to this exemplary traditional footwear manufacturing legacy.

“The derive involves playful and constructive behaviors and an awareness of psychogeographical effects. In a derive the individual, or several individuals, drop their every day tasks and activities and go on with movement and action. They let themselves be drawn by the attractions of the terrain and what they find there. They do not have a motif in mind, they are just experiencing the city open to new perceptions.”

Autumn and Winter 2020 Essentials

SIGG Switzerland :

The history of SIGG Switzerland Bottles AG begins in 1908: Ferdinand Sigg, a metal working specialist, returned to Switzerland after years of learning and travelling. Together with his friend Xaver Küng, he established an aluminium goods factory in Biel.

Sigg and Küng are united in their love for metal and their belief that aluminium is the material of the future.

Ferdinand Sigg 15.12.1877 – 08.02.1930

Buchanan Scarf :

His next defence came on 26 June 1972, against Panama’s greatest, the then undefeated Roberto Durán at the Madison Square Garden (MSG) in New York, in a bout which had a highly controversial ending. Durán was ahead on all three cards at the end of the 13th round, when both fighters exchanged punches after the bell. Buchanan went down, writhing in pain from a low blow, that Buchanan’s trainer, Gil Clancy, said was caused by a knee to the groin. Referee Johnny LoBianco awarded the fight to Durán, insisting that the blow that took down Buchanan was “in the abdomen, not any lower” and that he felt that Buchanan would be unable to continue fighting.

Dérive Socks:

The concept of the dérive has its origins in the Letterist International, an avant-garde and Marxist collective based in Paris. The dérive was a critical tool for understanding and developing the theory of psychogeography, defined as the “specific effects of the geographical environment (whether consciously organized or not) on the emotions and behavior of individuals.

Debord defines the dérive as “a mode of experimental behavior linked to the conditions of urban society: a technique of rapid passage through varied ambiances.” It is an unplanned journey through a landscape, usually urban, in which participants drop their everyday relations and “let themselves be drawn by the attractions of the terrain and the encounters they find there”.

Buchanan Scarf

26 September 1970 Ken Buchanan travelled to Puerto Rico where he would meet Ismael Laguna the world lightweight champion from Panama .Many experts believed San Juan’s warm weather would affect Buchanan, but he upset those who thought that way and beat Laguna by a 15-round decision to become world’s lightweight champion.

Later on the 26/6/1972 he fought the Legendary Roberto Duran at Madison Square Garden in one of the most controversial fights of the Era.
