    When Music and Fashion Collide

    With over 35 million albums worldwide, it’s no surprise that Long Beach legend, Snoop Dogg is coming out with yet another project. Reigning as a cultural icon for over two decades, Snoop is and always will be the number one “Alpha Dogg”.

    Announcing his new album week’s prior by dropping a short but sweet trailer, he left everyone in anticipation for more… The Doggfather’s new album “BUSH” has been entirely produced by friend, multiple Grammy winner and icon in the music and fashion scene, Pharrell Williams.

    So, to celebrate the launch of his recent album release, Happy Socks is coming out with a whole new collaborative sock design to follow an already newly launched athletic line.

    The smooth, funky vibes correlate perfectly with the new line of the already hyped up sock line. Matching the vibes perfectly with Snoop’s cool and collected Cali persona, the socks colour palette of blue, pink and green fit his newest album cover and sound to perfection.

    This exclusive design will be available as a unisex product, giving every type of customer the chance to spice up their sock drawer.

    You can find the collaboration at Happy Sock’s Stockholm and New York stores, as well as many other retailers worldwide.

    As for the album; Spotify, iTunes, as well as local music stores carry the rap legends brand new and anticipated album. 

  • Fash Forward

    Johan Tunebjer (Holgerbags) and Johan Magnusson (Plaza Magazine) invited our co-founder, EIC and CD Michaela Myhrberg to their recently founded radio show Fash Forward to talk about paper. Is it a suicide mission to start a print magazine in 2015 or might the industry be on it’s rise? We’re sorry guys but this is only available in Swedish. And no, the show’s not sponsored by Odalisque Magazine, they just really love us.

    Sunglass season just started and we’ve found a new favorite on the market. Danish Ørgeen Optics have been working with shades for quite some time and just released their collaboration with street wear designer Asger Juel Larsen. The design and development is happening in the heart of Copenhagen, meanwhile the eyewear is handmade in Japan. The collab is a mix of Ørgeens classic, timeless aesthetics and Asger’s more hardcore brand style. Available in stores and online now. And yes, it’s a limited edition.

    I Have been to Hell and Back

    There are some exhibitions we just sit around waiting for, this is one of them. I’m not sure I’ve ever heard so many people speak so enthusiastic about an upcoming show before. I’m talking about Louise Bourgeois – I Have Been to Hell and Back curated by Iris Müller-Westermann at the Moderna Museet in Stockholm. Iris (who also curated the extremely popular Hilma af Klint exhibition) has been working with the show for two years, and she tells me she got all of the pieces she wanted. The great Maman was transported from NYC, the 8 legs were dismantled and put in an open boat to Sweden and is now assembled to it’s order and gating the museum entrance.

    The exhibition consists of over 100 pieces including 47 sculptures, one cell, one painting and 54 pieces on paper and textile. There are 9 rooms, divided by architectural spider leg walls that separates the pieces into themes. Over a third of the artwork has never been shown before, which makes I Have Been to Hell and Back mandatory for any Bourgeois fans. The show opened this Saturday and will continue until the 17th of May. I deeply, deeply do recommend it.
