Great clothes, great people, and a great vibe is the best description that can be given for the launch event for Authentic Apparel Group's U.S. Army Menswear line this past Wednesday night (November 20). Held at Lower Manhattan's Blind Barber, tastemakers and fashionista's filled up the space to catch an in-person glimpse of Authentic Apparel's new U.S. Army Menswear collection.
Featuring a live DJ, the vibe in the building was great, as people mingled and got insights on the stylish new collection. The line, which will be distributed exclusively through Zappos, is officially licensed by the U.S. Army, and is inspired by classic military apparel while giving it a contemporary spin. One may think of Army apparel and shy away due to the idea of all-camouflage pieces, but the coolest thing about the line is that while the designs are inspired by Army attire, the colorways are varied and modern, and you would hardly guess they were based on military wear.
Artist Nathan Sawaya has added a new piece to his iconic Lego sculpture collection today (November 20), as he unveiled his new masterpiece this morning at Discovery Times Square. Through a process of submissions to the "What Should Nathan Build?" program through Discovery's site, New Yorker Suzan Goldstein's submission was chosen, and thus Sawaya's One World Trade Center masterpiece was born.
The breathtaking sculpture only took ten days to complete according to Sawaya, which is a breathtaking feat given the amount of detail put into the piece. The scupture will be on display from the remainder of Sawaya's 'The Art Of The Brick' exhibition, which ends its stay in NYC's Discovery Times Square on January 5, 2014.
Be sure to catch Sawaya's exhibit before it's gone, and see the stunning new sculpture for yourself!

The spectacle brought out many sides of the changing crowd, with some awestricken by the technological feat of Compressorhead, as well as those fearful of the inception of a robot takeover. Nonetheless, people enjoyed themselves, as many were taken down memory lane with the classic tunes, or simply by seeing things only once imagined coming to life before their eyes.
One may question the emotional connection between the robots and the crowd, but there was not much of a disconnect. The cheers between and after each song were authentic, and the reaction as the band started a new record mirrored that of a human band. Compressorhead is the real deal, and they are about as heavy metal as you can get.
It’s fascinating to see what the human mind can accomplish, and GE’s Brilliant Machines campaign, along with Compressorhead, certainly entertained and inspired New York City.

The Halloween spirit was still in full swing Friday night (November 1), as Dutch DJ’s Sick Individuals rocked New York City’s Lavo Nightclub. The upscale club was filled up with people dressed in a wide array of costumes, while some preferred to just dress up classically for the night. The affair was a fun one, as music blasted deep into the night, with people losing themselves on the dance floor while sweating off their face paint, as well as people in the VIP booths popping champagne to celebrate the holiday weekend.
The Dutch stars sets the party on fire playing their smashes, including their recently released, and Dannic assisted record, “Blueprint.” The energetic crowd thoroughly enjoyed themselves as voices were surely lost from the madness of the night, while the drinks flowed and memories were made.
