The relatively new, Portland based brand, KOZHA NUMBERS, just released their latest collection, Crimson. While scrolling through the lookbook we felt it was the perfect balance of crimson hues; mixed with an edgy redhead model showcasing bags that you hope magically appear in your wardrobe.
KOZHA NUMBERS fundamentally pulls inspiration from the continuity of numbers & minimalistic elements. Founders Ilona Gerasimov & Lena Vasilenko believe in architecture, materials and form. And thank God for that because their products are an edge Portland needs to hang on to.
It’s an uncomfortably hot July day in Portland when we get a sneak peek into Demetrius Mensah’s world. Stepping into the basement of his northeast studio, the man also known as Chauncey White, shows us where he perfects his craft. In this short amount of time he reveals just how big his visions are and what drives him. With the summer months giving more of a nod towards patio parties and rooftop bars, this might be the hardest season to stay in the productive state of mind, but he is an exception.
[Chauncey White has become an alter ego for Demetrius. The name was randomly attached to his employee number at Adidas but there is no Chauncey White in the system, so he adopted the identity of this mysterious name.]
Y.G.B. always brings together a community unparalleled to any other event in Portland. Curated to bring out diversity on every level, there’s always dope live performances showcasing raw talent, healers, groovers and a place to celebrate the accomplishments of our community’s growth.
Last Friday Y.G.B. celebrated their one year anniversary at Holocene by hosting DNVN, Brown Alice, West Guy and Valan Primus at The Thickest Summer. The line was around the block the whole evening and the crowd was just want we needed.
Make sure to get to their event this Friday, Power in Love at the Doug Fir.
