Vans-tastic

You should all know by now that we love our Vans dearly, and we're so happy to announce that our collection is continuing to grow with 4 new products introduced this week (That brings our tally up to 44 styles and colourways both in store and online, just an FYI) and as much as we love the classics - the  Authentics and Eras, these ones are a little bit special....




Gorilla Biscuits Slip on in Pewter

Some of you out there i'm sure have heard of Gorilla Biscuits, the NY based  vegan straight edge hardcore band? Well, they've teamed up with Vans to create a collection which includes this bad boy as well as a skate high. Nice colourway!



 

OTW Pritchard - Black

Now this gentleman you may recognise... as yes, we also stock him in Indigo! But hey, black's great too and not only is this style perfect if you wanna get your fancy feet on, but it's comfortable and skateable like any other vans sneaker! Not sure you'd wanna ruin them though... but these are lovely!




 
Half Cab and 106 Vulcanised in Flint Grey/Chocolate Truffle

Okay, these two styles are old news but hey, we're loving this new colourway for Spring 2011!

Massumi Dutti, I Love it !!!



Retail is hard just now, its been ages since i spent some serious cash on a new wardrobe.  Well 6 months in fact, and it was Hong Kong and i went Visvim & Idiom crazy and a few Kikstyo T's to add to the experience.

For me to spend money, i take persuasion, a good shopfit, nice ambience good staff (but in this case their spanish, so they can't have everything), the shops are all kinda identikit, but the flooring alone must be £40k.
In spain this week, and i've visited about 6 stores and finally decided i want to buy a 'look', a jacket, shirt, sweat, jumper and that'll do for now, but next time your on the continent, visit one of the stores, also theres 6 stores in London, go visit.

Or you can goto their website, HERE, surprisingly its not transactional which is a bit of blooper from these guys but the site gives a feeling of the look.





Lomo color slide xpro 200

So, we just got a lovely restock of lomo film and we really got a great selection - both 35mm and 120 colour negative in various speeds, black and white, redscale and some cool colour slide film too! To me, the colour slide film is possibly the most interesting. While normal colour negative film gets processed in a C41 chemical when you take it to your local photolab, colour slide films is deaigned to be processed in an E6 chemical. However, if you take the slide film and cross-process it in a C41 chemical it gives photographs with huge contrast, whacked out colours and insane saturation.

At the moment lomography have 2 of these colour slide films on the market - the first of which is the 'colour slide/x-pro 200' which is really rebranded Agfa RSX 200. I took a couple of spools of this stuff to Paris to pop in my trusty Nikkormat a few weeks back and here are a few snaps -








Conclusion: I think it's great, and love the exaggerated green tones through the film. The great thing about this is that it's available in both 35mm and 120 and so you can use it in such a great variety of vintage and plastic cameras.

As for Lomographys other colour slide film (X-pro Chrome) I currently have a roll of this in my camera fromwhich I'll hopefully be getting developed soon!

Mini Diana

The main drawback of the Mini Diana to me, was the fact that it was only really available in the standard lomo black and teal combo. Compared to the full size Diana, with it's various colourways and styles, it paled. However, we are proud to announce that not only have Lomography cottoned onto this and have released a great new range of themed mini's, we now have them available here at Fat Buddha! Check them out...






So now the competition between the two is getting close! If you're having trouble deciding between the full size or the mini check out our blog detailing the differences HERE!

Don't remember to check out our full range of lomography, and keep those eyes peeled for some new additions soon!

RIP Nate Dogg





It is with great sadness to announce that Nate Dogg, one of Hip-Hops greats, has sadly died today at the age of 41.

His death was confirmed late last night (March 15) in his home town of Long Beach, California. The cause of death is not yet confirmed.

The rapper made his debut on Dr. Dre's 1992 debut solo album 'The Chronic' and went on to sign with Death Row Records.


His biggest hit was a collabo with fellow West Coast G-Funk pioneer Warren g with the song Regulate, and is one of the most played songs here in the shop!
