KNOTORYUS TALKS TO MICHAEL “La MJC” DUPOUY ABOUT “ALL GONE”, CURATING DREAMS AND HOW SHORT OUR SUPREME X LV-MONEY IS
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 »
You could be here for the fact that it’s Saint Patrick’s Day again and you were finally able to pull out that green thing from the ’not so cute in regular lighting, huh?’ pile. Or you could be here for the following:
This Saint Laurent “Please Don’t Leave Me” cap
It says ‘I’m needy!’ but at the same time ‘What’s €215 for a trucker hat’? My two favourite statements.
Supreme x Stone Island
If mood rings were your sister’s thing when she was a Wiccan for a hot 90 minutes in 5th grade, the Supreme x Stone Island heat-reactive trenches and accessories can be yours right now. You might still be able to snag one of the duffle bags.

Though Willow was featured only last week, I can’t but shout out Jaden this time for all the #facefaceface he’s giving on his latest GQ … Read More »
Thank you Stefaan for reminding me today of this shoot I styled for the great Alex Salinas and that I hadn’t got around to posting yet. Some great pieces in here that will only be available if you have a great Raf/Walter/Vetements/Supreme archive-connect or if you are a pro at inserting multiple search term combinations on eBay (like this dude and his crazy collection of Kanye West/Pastelle Merchandise).
I found these two top girls on IG and I’m still super in love with their faces. They turned out to be hella smart and funny as well.
Nikki is my absolute spirit animal in the above pic.
I need to talk to Alex because I would really like a print of this one in my house.
Mix that real Rolex with a 49 euro dress.

Most of these songs we overheard on our recent trip to New York City:
in Dover Street Market NYC, Opening Ceremony NYC, Stumptown Coffee, Alife, Generation Records Supreme, VFiles, Ace Hotel, etc.
Featuring Nils Frahm, Badbadnotgood, Father, Agnes Nobel, Janet Jackson, Arca, Nosaj Thing, Tha Dogg Pound, OG Maco and Jay Z.
What days, my friends. The soundtrack to this dark ass film that keeps playing in my head is mostly Ghostface narrated.
Good thing Supreme just dropped the images of their F/W 14 collection, because it seems like we be dressing for the apocalypse anyway. They got it all : face masks, big come through the block coats and the antithesis to the lyrics I printed above t-shirt.

Three weeks ago, I shot a new editorial for De Morgen Magazine with Belgian top photographer + all-round super interesting human ALEX SALINAS (he’s funny too -the best dudes always are) which drops TOMORROW.
In front of the lens we got SX frontwoman Stefanie Callebaut.
I put her in gorgeous Christopher Kane, Givenchy, Supreme, Louis Vuitton, …
(Alexander McQueen shirt, Chloe glasses)
Backstage shot : shout out to hair & make-up artist extra-ordinaire Sofie Van Bouwel, who afterwards went on to do the Fendi, Dries Van Noten and Chanel shows.
But what I’m most proud of is the fact that :
A. Sir Salinas and I snatched that cover.
B. We did that cover with a picture of the flawless Stefanie wearing the most amazing KIM MEE HYE earring containing 147 diamonds.
C. I RETURNED ALL 147 DIAMONDS SAFELY
D. 12 pages y’all!
To inhale all of the Alex Salinas … Read More »
You know when I will stop wearing menswear? Well, first of all : probably never, because I been stealing my big brother’s Powell Peralta shirts since I was a pre-teen. Second of all : do you have any idea how much fun it is to wear a pair of APC x KANYE denims? So, for now, my top wear consists of an unhealthy mix of Patta, Palace Skateboards, A Cut Above, Visvim and Supreme.
(This is me taking a 30sec breather during another dope ALEX SALINAS X KNOTORYUS shoot which drops MARCH 8th.)
The boys from Supreme just released their S/S 2014 lookbook and there’s so much good stuff.
Go HERE to see the entire collection which will be released online February 27, 2014.
You’ll hear enough ‘Walk on the wild side’ and ‘Perfect Day’ puns everywhere else, so here are some lesser known gems from the man.
