K-WAY at Fat Buddha Store

In store now we have the classic waterproof windbreaker from France K-WAY.  K-WAY was conceived in Paris in 1965 when Leon Claude Duhammel created a lightweight completely waterproof jacket that could be easily folded into a small hip bag and used to stop getting your clothes soaked when it's pouring with rain. 


 This practical jacket quickly caught on and people began using it rather than an umbrella.  It has maintained its popularity to this day and has succeeded by using cutting edge fabrics and maintaining the same classic look it began with.


In store now we have the Claude Jacket which is a classic looking zip up windbreaker that is perfect for the Spring/Summer months.  We have it in five colourways Royal Blue, Yellow, Orange, Red and Forrest Green. 


Available in store and online now!

Music Monday


Last week saw the release of friend of the shop Brian D'Souza aka Auntie Flo's Remixed EP. The two track EP features Pearson Sound's bass heavy take on "Oh My Days" which boomkat describes as having a focus on the "tight, skippy percussive lilt and bumping subs".  The other is mutual friend of the label and recent newcomer SOPHIE's standout version of "Highlife" which takes the song on a much more bright percussion heavy route.


Auntie Flo is a Glasgow based producer/DJ who holds residencies at Glasgow's Sub Club with Highlife and London's Plastic People with Huntleys and Palmers.  Auntie Flo is a real talent to look out for in 2012 and we are very excited for the release of his debut album Future Rhythm Machine.This year is really looking to be a good one for him and we recommend if you get the chance to go and catch him, he will be playing at several festivals throughout the summer from Lovebox in London to Dimensions Festival in Croatia.

Check the Highlife Radio Stream here

Auntie Flo will also be treating us to a DJ set at our Fat Buddha x Carhartt Spring Launch Party on Thursday 5th April.  Click attending and find out more on the event page here to win an invite.

Renowned for their remixes expect to catch a show featuring pretty much every music genre about from Beethoven to Rolling Stones.  Even going as far as remixing one of their own Soulwax albums. As well as this be prepared to be in awe of the live visuals used as they blow everyone's mind with different mash ups of favourite songs.
