DJ/producer and more recently fashion designer, Ellen Allien, seems very busy traveling, playing and creating. As a popular and well respected performer, Ellen draws inspiration from the many cities she visits, resulting in her own fashion line under the same name. She recently launched her 2009 winter collection, featuring some rather understated splashes of color and graphics, mixed with interesting arrangements of denim. I’ve enjoyed her many releases, in particular her collaboration with Apparat and her mix for Fabric. It’s great to see artists that make that disciplinary cross-over of music and design, and often interesting to see how one influences the other.

It’s an ideal way to carry your feet in public. Alas it is only for women.
Hi everyone. My name is Sean and I’m new to The Strange Attractor. Pete asked me to contribute about a week ago and I couldn’t be more excited!
Anyway, I thought I’d start off with a link to the Ashi Dashi Shop. Ever since high school I’ve loved crazy socks. I have no idea why I’ve had this obsession, but seriously how could you not want a pair of meat socks?!
