Colus Havenga expands his wares

Post image for Colus Havenga expands his wares

Colus Havenga, one of my personal favorite t-shirt designers and brands, just added some jewelry to his line. Two necklaces are now available at for $20 each. “rune” and “flora” are simple yet bold. Laser cut from acrylic plastic and hung from a long chain, they’re a great addition to any collection.

Seeing as I am the most manly of men you won’t find me doing this, but it is a pretty neat tutorial on how to turn that old t-shirt you never wear into a cotton necklace.



There’s not much more for me to add after such an informative headline, except that I should probably point out that the razorblade on th necklace has rounded edges so it’s safer than it looks (safety first!), and that Dance Party Massacre sell the necklace for $17.95, so it’s a pretty high value freebie to be getting with your order.



I like dance Party Massacre, they don’t seem to feel the need to be constrained to one particular style, but they do keep on topic, which allows them to be creative but also leaves me in the comfort that their name actually means something, because aside from being a catchy title for a B-Movie, when you look at their tees you do think “yeah, that name goes well with that design.”

This latest offering also marks something of a departure for them (and yes, I know what my last sentence said), they’re branching out from and have added a couple of bandanas and a necklace that your parents would hate to go along with the new tees.

This cool looking scarf/necklace was featured in Instructable’s weekly newsletter, and I thought it looks no nice (and presumably easy though I haven’t actually looked at the tutorial properly yet) that I’d share it with you, so if you were wondering “what should I do with this old t-shirt?” wonder no more!

Chateau Roux spotted on Skins

by Andy on March 18, 2008

Chris (Joe Dempsie) wearing a Chateau Roux ‘I Heart Hate’ T-shirt on Skins Series 2 Episode 4

Its taken me until now to realise just how great Skins is, I really think that its the best British TV show on at the moment, and I watch a lot of TV, so I must know what I’m talking about. So I was pretty excited when I noticed that Chateau Roux was all over Skins like a rash, and a very sexy rash at that.

I noticed Chris (played by Joe Dempsie, pictured) wearing an ‘I [heart] hate’ tee in the 4th episode and realised that it was from CR, then in episode 5 when Jal (Larissa Wilson) wore a badass looking Chateau necklace (pictured above, with a little box incase you didn’t know what a necklace is) I figured I was compelled to write a post about it. To their credit, the creators of Skins maintain a blog that has a style section on it where people discuss what was worn by who in different episodes, apparently prompted by the volume of request they receive on the subject. They don’t link to where the stuff is purchasable, but it certainly does make things easier in case you are desperate to look like Maxxie or Sid.

*Excuse the pictures, my TV has developed a yellow spot problem with a broken colour tube, and trying to correct the colours in Photoshop made them look a bit funny.*

Both items are available through the Chateau Roux website, and possibly in their retail store at 17 Newburgh Street, London (near Carnaby Street).
