Rock 'n' Roll Billboards of the Sunset Strip

0 Comments

Robert Landau has a new exhibit on display at the Skirball Cultural Center. Based on his 2012 book of the same name, Rock 'n' Roll Billboards of the Sunset Strip, the show documents various music-related billboards from the heart of the entertainment capital of the world.

Advertising and it's ability to target the passing motorist seems to us to be both very American and very Los Angeles. Good stuff.

Field Notes 'Two Rivers' Edition

0 Comments

 

We've been fans of Field Notes since their humble launch a few years back. Besides being a functional, well-crafted and domestically-produced analog product, it's also that magic touch of Aaron Draplin that continues to draw us in. Watch the above short which shows why the latest release, the 'Two Rivers' Edition, is so special.

California Inspires Me: Mark Mothersbaugh

0 Comments

Imagine what it musta been like for a seven year old kid to 'see' for the first time...and then to see the Beatles for the first time...and then to be a witness to the Kent State tradgedy. Such are the highlights of Mark Mothersbaugh formative years. Another fantastic installment of the Google Play and California Sunday Magazine series.

Our most recent drop, the 'Mondays' tee by Ornamental Conifer, sold out within 24 hours of it's release, which is easily the fastest selling graphic tee that we've ever produced. We are grateful to everyone who managed to purchase one (or two). All of the orders have been packed and shipped and some of you may have even already received your delivery. If so, post a photo on Instagram and be sure to tag us (@P1Brand) and Conifer (@ornamentalconifer) so we can see 'em too.

"Mondays Ain't So Bad..." Ornamental Conifer for P1 Brand

We've been fans of Ornamental Conifer and his unique spin on the world for a few years now. And with his recent move from London to Los Angeles, it was the perfect opportunity for us to get together and do something fun. After a few emails and a couple of brainstorming sessions, we invited him into the P1 Brand garage to help realize a humble collection of printed wares. We will be releasing the "Mondays" tees, buttons and totes in just a few days (Monday, February 23rd to be exact) over at the P1 Brand online shop.

World's End Re-Opens

0 Comments

This caught our eye on the internets today. The 30+ year antiparadigm that is the magic of 430 Kings Road in London is open for business again. Vivienne Westwood's World's End, complete with it's infamous 13 hour, counterclockwise-running clock, occupies the same address (and heritage) that housed Paradise Garage, Let It Rock, Too Fast To Live, Sex, and Seditionaries. Heavy duty, subversive cultural influence at it's finest.

Making the Pirelli 2015 Calendar (NSFW)

0 Comments

 

The legendary Pirelli Calendar has a long tradition of being more aligned with high fashion than with road tires, but that is just fine with us. Photographer Steven Meisel was tapped for the 2015 edition and continues the racy Pirelli heritage, which is a perfect addition for any garage wall.
