Jörg Kahlhöfer was my colleague in the last year of uni. He is German and he stood in Lisbon during the year 2014, studying under the Erasmus program. Few days ago, Jörg released a video about the Portuguese capital and what the characteristics that make it so unique. We agree, there is no city like Lisbon and we gotta love her! Watch it below.



Pepe Jeans London offers the service of Costume Studio since March, where you can complete the design of any demin piece. Integrated in the new concept stores and under the motto Do It Yourself (DIY), in this customization studio, clients can customize the purchased  pieces in the store as they like. The stamping is laser made. The client can also choose to apply buttons or studs, efects of wear, color printing, among other choices.
In Portugal, this service is available in the brand store at Centro Comercial Colombo, in Lisbon, where you will find a demin professional to guide and advise the client during the costumization.

To celebrate this new service, Pepe Jeans teamed up with PARQ MAGAZINE and invited two artists to test the system and to a customization session for the May’s magazine fashion editorial. The artists chosen were, the designer and illustrator, José Cardoso a.k.a. Tomba Lobos (Porto) and, the designer and tattoo artist, Nicole Lourinho (Lisboa).
More info on this Pepe Jeans new exclusive and more about the pieces created by the two artists, here.

The small black and white squares may arouse more curiosity than interest in those who observe the code, which is in fact a world first. The Portuguese Pavement is a traditional style pavement used for many pedestrian areas in Portugal and worldwide known. Situated at the top of Rua Garrett, in Chiado, Lisbon, the QR code provides access to tourist information about the area. This project was developed by the agency MSTF Partners. Watch the making of video below.


The Urban Art team Low Bros consists of two brothers, Qbrk and Nerd, born in Hamburg, northern Germany. They’re currently live and work in Berlin. When they where children the two brothers loved to draw and invented their own little stories and fantasy worlds while playing in the backyard or being on the countryside. You’ll still find both influences, the urbanic and natural in their today’s works. Later they started to paint graffiti, where also co-founders of the TPL Crew and The Weird, which was founded together with Nychos, Cone, Hr. v. Bias, Dxtr, Rookie, Look and Vidam from Peachbeach and Frau Isa. All times the brothers painted together, but it took a while till they began to create their characters together and developed their own, common, geometric style. Ever since they go by the name Low Bros.
