Isysia & PUMA // An Artistic View On Fashion

By on Aug 28, 2014

AJANAKU invites upcoming artists to share their view on fashion. Not in words, but through their artistry. By incorporating a fashion product in their work, each item is approached as a piece of art. This time we asked the talented illustrator Isysia from Belgium to share her vision on the iconic shoe PUMA ‘States’. PUMA State, 1980 Back in the 80’s, the PUMA Suede became the IT shoe in the hip-hop scene on the streets of New York City. A timeless classic and an integral part of sneaker history, the style was embraced by many sub-cultures and called by many names: the ‘Suede’, the ‘Clyde’, and PUMA ‘Joints’ to name a few – but it was the UK scene that adopted this style and made it their own, aptly re-naming it the PUMA ‘States’, after its birthplace. Initially, the shoe was not sold in Britain and was hard to find: but the legendary status amongst the NYC Hip-Hop community meant...

THE WYTHE HOTEL, BROOKLYN – NEW YORK

By on Aug 18, 2014

Wythe Hotel started with the discovery of a factory on the Williamsburg waterfront. The building was constructed in 1901 and has been converted into a 70-room hotel, a rooftop bar, and a stand-out restaurant. This is a perfect hotel away from the touristic streets of Manhattan, and in the new centre of New York,...

2015 Indian Scout Motorcycle

By on Aug 14, 2014

The Indian motorcycle name returns with the 2015 Indian Scout. This is the first all-new revision in over seventy years, with this one incorporating the model’s trademark “rigid” triangular shape and a cast aluminum frame, the lightest in its class. It features a solo tan leather bucket seat sitting 25 inches off the ground, a 61.5-inch wheelbase and a 31-degree lean angle. This will be one of the more sportier cruiser-style bikes out there and the 1133cc V-twin engine delivers the performance. Look for the 2015 Indian Scout to be available later this year in black, red, matte grey and matte black with an MSRP of $10,999...

The New Family Car.. The Porsche Macan

By on Aug 10, 2014

There will be a point in your life, maybe soon, where you’ll trade in your bitchin’ bachelor ride for a crossover, the auto-industry term for all those mini SUVs now swarming the streets. Your brain will congratulate you on your practicality, while your testicles—obsolesced in the face of such a bland vehicle—will slowly ascend into your torso, entering a period of hibernation. But they might stick around if it’s the new Porsche Macan you’re driving. There’s a reason why crossovers are the fastest-growing vehicle category right now, sales-wise: They’re safe and sized just right for carrying kids and Ikea furniture, with none of the road-hogging selfishness of a full-size SUV or the Irish-Catholic-family insinuations of a minivan. They’re also boring. No one envies the owner of a crossover. Which is what makes the Macan kind of miraculous....
