  • SENTIMENTAL MOMENT / A VIDEO BY AARON MINARDI

    23 June 2015

    Inspired by Nobuyoshi Araki's Diary Sentimental Journey this short film portrays a deep emotional transcendence of  loneliness and disparity. A series of mixed images collaged together paired with a dark score encompassing a complete story needless of any dialogue.

  • BLENDS LOS ANGELES / THE INSPIRATION BEHIND THE CONCEPT

    22 June 2015

    Our Los Angeles location opened in 2013 as a follow up to our original store location in the Old Bank District. Continuing with a strong emphasis on minimalism, this location embodies a seamless, breathable, museum-like aesthetic with simple fixturing housing footwear and apparel. These elements play a key role in setting the ambience ensuring the customers are not force fed product, but yet free to explore the store`s product selection. The awkward silence at Blends Los Angeles mimics an art gallery experience in which the main focus is primarily on the art (in this case the plethora of limited edition sneakers and apparel) and a more intimate shopping experience between the store staff and our customers.

    Maintaining creativity is a very tough balance and usually needs continued spark to keep the engine running. Digging around the office we came across some of these rare Visionaire books with issues 46 and 47 completely untampered.
