Swatch MTV Playground: My KISS watch

Swatch is all about design and as part of the Swatch/MTV Playground project the watchmakers extraordinaire are running a competition inviting budding designers to submit their styles. Kind of like a Threadless but for watches, artistic types are invited to come up with their own watch design for the iconic brand.

As well as showing off your creative skills to the world, one lucky winner will also win a three night luxury break in Malta for the Isle of Malta MTV Special. Neat!

Some of my favourite designs are displayed here and you can find out how to enter here!

PS That amazing Paul Stanley design? That’s mine, pretty sure you should vote for it.

What to wear to celebrate the birth of Peter Kriss

Gave my heart and I gave my soul

One of the best things about living in New Cross is the daily fashion parade. There’s a school opposite my house and watching the sixth formers tramp in each morning (uhm, does that sound weird?) is like enjoying a Topshop focus group on your doorstep. On top of that there’s the always-interesting art students in all their finery and the local families who seem make more effort than anyone on the planet and always look amazing. Veritable fashion parade, as I say.

One thing you don’t see much of is metallers which is why seeing this beaut today was such a treat;

Lady, I don’t know who you are but you make NX a better place for all of us and I hope you’re at KISS next week, because I’ll be looking out for you. And, uh, sorry for taking a creepy photo of you.

PS Here’s the other best thing in NX at the moment;
