KNOTORYUS TALKS TO MICHAEL “La MJC” DUPOUY ABOUT “ALL GONE”, CURATING DREAMS AND HOW SHORT OUR SUPREME X LV-MONEY IS

Posted on February 1st, by Dominique in art, interview, magazine, style. No Comments

In the intro of the 11th edition of his brain child, the coveted “All Gone – The Finest Of Street Culture 2016“-book, Paris native Michael Dupouy, starts out by stating: “Growth and progress are never without risk.”

He goes on to explain beautifully how a once niche movement has evolved into what some think to be a mindless monster while others perceive what is happening to be a very important levelling up of a culture. Michael finishes musing: “The best is yet to come.”

Michael Dupouy is co-founder of independent communication agency La MJC, one of the first agencies in Europe to work closely on major campaigns with the world’s biggest brands and inserting these streets’ much sought after flavour into their goods, while also designing special products with them -literally- carrying the La MJC-stamp. It is hard to find someone better suited to make bold statements about the state of today’s “saturated … Read More »



DISCOVER THE NEW ADIDAS ORIGINALS EQT + HAVE YOUR COPY OF ‘ALL GONE’ SIGNED AT AVENUE ANTWERP

Posted on January 20th, by immi in magazine, style. No Comments

On this very normal, uneventful, totally non-inaugural day we’re looking forward to an event our friends at Avenue Antwerp are hosting that people actually want to attend.

On January 25th, you’ll be able to get up-close to the new adidas Originals EQT series, available in-store on January 26th. The Equipment range focuses solely on the essential trappings of a sneaker (seeing it as a piece of equipment), as it has done since its inception in 1991. The new EQT range features details such as pixel knit uppers, signature EQT webbing and sculpted midsoles.

Here’s the kicker: for the second time, Team Avenue got the great Michael Dupouy of La MJC and Club 75 to attend, exclusively signing the latest edition of his street culture collectibles bible ‘All Gone’. The best in limited editions from 2K16 will all be right there in … Read More »



GET YOUR SIGNED COPY OF STREET CULTURE BIBLE “ALL GONE” AT AVENUE ANTWERP

Posted on January 27th, by Dominique in art, magazine, style. 1 Comment

I have been a fan of Michael “LaMJC” Dupouy’s ALL GONE “The finest of Street Culture” -books for years and we own several editions ourselves, so I’m pretty stoked that our friends at AVENUE have managed to get the man himself to come to Antwerp for an exclusive signing. 

For most fans of the highest levels of street wear, not only is ALL GONE another one of those must-cops, it is also an often painful reminder of all the releases that got away. But if your purchases made it into the book, it might feel like you scored twice.

My brain is pretty fried from all today’s deadlines, but if I had to make an educated guess, I would say that fellow Belgians Case Studyo deservedly got selected for their “Fuck A Dollar & A Dream” by Grotesk and “Give Up” by Parra sculptures.
