The sun is shining, the weather is sweet
and we are happy
to enjoy a nice weekend
and are already
dancing on our feet!
If you need some inspiration
for your own party,
Here’s some HAPPY PARTY
or CIRCUS TRALALALA…
p.s. with many thanks to cool Suussies,
for sending us this ‘shining’ bow-tie!
Rop van Mierlo Rules!
The Dutch Artist making impressive artworks
in a very special technique with waterpaint.
His new book SOME LOGIC
was launched in Amsterdam a few weeks ago…
(how could we missed that? …)
It’s a follow up from his first book Wild Animals.
This book contains artworks of beautiful animals like
a giraffe, a bumblebee, a panda, a crocodile, a mandrill.
It maintains the same level of perfection.
Incredibly brilliant in colors and forms…
so very subtle… amazing!

T4T by MUNSTERkids
Cool brand MUNSTERKIDS from Australia
is doing something we
Yes their tees for boys are always
And we are big tee & sweat fans,
so we’re kind of updated.
Munsterkids teams up with very creative
cool artists for this special project T4T.
An initiative that aims to help the kids in orphanages
throughout Vietnam and Cambodia.
Each season they commission their favourite artists
to do a series of artwork for Munster tees.
The proceeds from the sale of these tees are shared
with kids in Vietnam and Cambodia,
providing clothing, books and bikes.
Things we so much appreciated as kids
and probably took for granted…
Boys live everywhere around the globe.
Unfortunately not all just in a prosperous environment.
Therefore it’s fantastic
that a cool brand like Munsterkids
is sharing in this particular way.
They lived with their 3 kids in Vietnam,
where they produce their designs.
So they feel so much connection with this country.
By doing this,
they teach their and our children and yes us …
a big life lesson.
Care for others and our world…
BIG UP for cool MUNSTERKIDS,
and especially for their heartwarming project.
Because they really care, share and they do it in style…
p.s. Hunter is the coolest kid. He won their kids drawing competition.
And his design is really our favourite!
We guess because it’s open-minded! Like kids are…
This image made us laugh so loud,
so hopefully, you will too!
It happen to be a sewing pattern for DIY hippos.
Vintage 80’s on Etsy.
First we thought it was a contemporary ‘advertising-ish-thing’
in a newspaper or something.
So funny that we look
and immediately come to conclusions
while after having a better look…
there’s this very cool crazy surprise!
We love that!
It’s just, what we call it, old skool cool!
Very inspiring styles from the past.
Have a great HAPPY DAY!

THE COOLEST EVERRRRR…
For us, this image represents the coolest lifestyle for dudes.
It’s really our favourite one for quite some time…
What else do you need as a boy?
and the best exhibition of boards.
A print in our home of this would be awesome!
We would love to interview these boys,
to find out how they experience the SANTA CRUZ lifestyle.
Are they aware of their high-coolness-factor?
Well they’ve made it to the cover of
THE COOLEST EVERRR.
All with the images,
styles, designs and coolness
we adore the most for boys.

Ok, we’re halfway March and we already need sunnies (whoop whoop)
but still are daydreaming about warm days on the beach…
These cool designs will take us a bit towards the Californian lifestyle
(and then we wake up in our sunny but freezing Amsterdam… big bummer, haha).
How cool is this…, Herschell Supply aligned with Californian artist Kevin Butler…
Their ‘first everrrr’ partnership with an artist for their cool brand.
Archetypisch nostalgic designs of bags, backpacks and accessoiries
with great prints and color combinations.
With Kevin Butler’s well-loved series ‘RAD CARS with RAD SURFBOARDS on them’
they’ve created a unique limited edition capsule collection.
The idea of this series printed inside the bags is really cool…
Simple versus surprise. It’s all about the details!
The Californian vibe is, besides the RAD cars prints,
in the house… because of the cool accessories like
the surf-socks, a surfboard rack (a big wannahave for us!)
and the biggie beach towel with the ‘pretty much packed’-VW-bus.
Luckily we’re invited to the launch of this cool collaboration
Thanks to cool agent PUBLIC_
So tommorow we will take the famous THE-COOL-HEADS-BOYS .
to touch/hold and smell (haha) this limited editions
and we will report the true experience afterwards.
Hopefully we won’t be thrown out because of our little rascals.
For now we enjoy the ‘contemporary warm vibes’ around this collection
and say hi from Amsterdam!
Dress up boyssszzz and dazzle the girls!!!
Ok, here it is….
Our hero Mister Pharrell Williams. inspires us very much with his cool excellent styles.
He amazed us by doing something different at the Oscars.
By showing up in a tuxedo with

Big pink bubbles…, is what we need!
Rainy days, back to school and bored?
BUBBLEGUM is the best thing to get your boys.
REAL GOOD GUM is the one we prefer,
because it’s organic and gluten free.
But they need some crowdfunding help before they can sell it to us.
We love the package already!
Hopefully it will be on the market soon,
so we can chew BIG (organic) BUBBLES
and have GREAT FUN!
And isn’t this the coolest picture of cool boys everrrrrr?
Thank you Mister Depardon!
