the crossing at queen and bathurst
taking the high road on a friday afternoon
after the fringe I left D' at his Davenport pad and headed south, when i got to Queen St. the calm and creepy feeling by CAMH at midnight was a contrast from the well lit mannequins having a midnight party in the gallery district.
The FEIYUE fixed gear – a new collaboration by the Sino-French sneaker brand This year, Feiyue launched in the UK with its collection of cool coloured plimsolls and sneakers; the brand’s heritage is all about an East-West fusion.
Born in China in the 1920s the brand was bought and revived by a French team in 2006. Feiyue takes its inspiration from urban culture, nostalgic vintage classics and the travels of its owners, a bunch of sneaker freakers and bike addicts. Feiyue has just announced its latest collaboration, this time with London based designer Carl Wellman; they have teamed up to create a limited edition Feiyue fixed gear bike.
The Feiyue team is passionate about the world urban cultures in general and by the cycling culture in particular. Their bike has been designed in line with the Feiyue aesthetic – simple and minimalist. Although the bikes are currently not for sale, you can pick up a pair of FEIYUE shoes in Toronto at:
DELPHIC, 706 Queen Street West or TNT, 92 Eglinton Ave. W., Toronto
she passes in the night,
teasing glass bound statues with freedom
jealousy is awake at 12:03 am
and only us shadows see her
From fellow Flickr, " Burlap Jacket" comes some summer stripes.
shadows are filled with faded cars
the street lamps replace daylight
my summer is held up by handlebars
and yellow wears the night
