Conservatives War on youths

David Cameron once again infuriates me with his smugness, stripping benefits for the under 25's and claiming they should be in education training or employment yet currently the situation is university fees have trebled, under 25 unemployment is at an all time high and the training schemes the government offers do you no good and simply waste time. Not all under 25 year olds rock up to the council expecting a house or run to the job centre wanting to sign on, it's always the weakest he chooses to attack and that there is no leader but a coward who's wealth and upbringing makes him out of touch with the general population. Yet the fault is we (under 25's) will be hit hardest yet will we be bothered to vote when the next election rolls in or will we sit and moan when those in power cut and chip away at the little we've got?

Instead of punishing people for the governments constant failures instead of outsourcing and wasting millions on work programmes why can't the job centres become job centres employing individuals who can successfully engage with employers that interviews can be set up and seekers seen instead of wasting time talking about nothing

Marc Newson x G-Star

I love the shape of the pockets, the fabric which allows for the jacket to seem sharper and smarter than a normal varsity and the play on the traditional Letterman with the sleeves not fully leather but a patch of leather adding quirk as well as slight conformity

Camper x Bernhard Willhelm


I love this take on the hightop/hiking boot hybrid from the chunky laces to the squiggly raised sole, the mix of materials with Leather & Suede and the fusion of patterns on the latter with cow print & Zebra. Bold and different and its good Camper is stepping out the box 


Fashion fools

Sometimes I'm ashamed at conforming I launched RE-BEL to rebel to stop seeing the same blank faces peer at me from glossy pages to allow others to be included but I feel somewhat there's a long way to go and we haven't even begun to become the media institution we will end up becoming. At present I feel fashion allows room for racism, ageism, elitism etc. Fashion isn't inclusive it's people within that make excuses that allow fashion to remain truly ugly from the inside and conform to standard views of not only beauty but talent. Fashion is racist, ageist, elitist and at some point change needs to happen not just 'token' change like a Rick Owen's or Dsquared show or a Vogue Italia 'black' issue, beauty is beauty as talent is talent it shouldn't be judged due to 'people like to dream' people are people sold the same product over and over that they conform and its comfortable to see a standard kind of image, change happens when those who create are willing to produce different work, step outside themselves and slowly and surely the next generation won't be just dreamers they'll be doers, I was 19 when RE-BEL started almost 5 years ago and I've seen it grow and I've grown, here's on to another five where real issues will begin to be addressed but my eyes are wide open and I know that I can't wait for change or dream of it I can do it
