Bristol Studio Comes Into Its Own

LOS ANGELES — “It looks very basic,” Luke Tadashi said slowly, holding up a sample of a Bristol Studio black crewneck sweatshirt.
It does, but before he can get what sounds to be a qualifier in, the El Monte factory owner whose facility — where one might also see samples laying around from Vetements, Carbon38 or Soul Cycle — he’s standing beside cuts in. “It’s not simple. He’s lying,” she said playfully. She would know. Nearly everything Tadashi’s thrown at this factory has been far from typical, from the 25-oz. fabric so thick a hammer has to be used just to set the zipper, to the upward of 13 panel pieces for sweats (it’s normally seven, or four on cheaper versions).
“Nothing that we do is standard, Nothing we’re doing is based on existing fits. It has to be something from scratch,” Tadashi later said, while pulling a reversible hoodie over his head to model its fit from the factory floor. About a year-and-a-half ago, the brand stopped hiring fit models given Tadashi’s exacting standards for his label’s fits and proportions.
Today, Bristol Studio may perhaps be coming into its own. Aside from putting a halt on fit models, roughly a year ago

Bristol Los Angeles Men’s Spring 2018

Luke Tadashi and Tommy Nowels, who design Bristol Los Angeles, drew from early childhood fashion recollections for spring.

“My first fashion memories were going to the supermarket with my mother and looking at Slam magazine,” Tadashi said. “The magazine featured a mix of NBA and urban street culture and those Rocawear and Sean John ads really had an impact on me.”

 The homage to streetwear in the early 2000s translated into an array of updated denim tracksuits that featured boxy, elongated track jackets and baggy sweatpants with snap closures on the sides for that retro Adidas feel.
Skater-inspired oversize corduroy pants cut on the bias provided interesting textures and volumes while celebrating the early Aughts. The use of Cupro fabric in half-zip tops and shorts provided the feminine touch that is also part of Bristol’s DNA. 
The collection did a good job of identifying a core message for Bristol and moving streetwear beyond its too-long obsession with the Nineties. And that’s a welcome change.

This Artist Turned A Major Street In Bristol Into A Huge Water Slide

That’s no street — that’s a slip ‘n’ slide!

So it was Sunday, when some 360 people in Bristol, England, went careening down Park Street on a 300-foot homemade water slide.

The slide, a crowd-funded project by artist Luke Jerram, was built from little more than plastic sheets, hay bales, water and a dash of liquid soap.

If you look at photographs in the 1900s you see these beautiful empty streets with all the kids playing out.” Jerram said to the BBC, explaining part of his inspiration for the slide. “It’s an extraordinary thing and all that has been taken away.”

According to NPR,nearly 100,000 people applied to take a run down the slide — unfortunately, only 360 riders ultimately got to take the plunge.
