Namazonia!

Basso and Brookes’ creative director and muse Namalee Bolle’s band ‘Namazonia‘ recently performed at the launch party for ‘The First to Know‘ – a new book about how hipsters and mavericks shaped the zeitgeist. Music wise they have developed from playing DJ based D.I.Y electronic sounds on the underground club scene to a fully fledged live rock n roll band combining influences as diverse as Frank Zappa, Janet Jackson, The Happy Mondays and Black Sabbath. Some people really are just a bit too cool for school.

She Wears It Well # 4

Let me introduce you to Lesly, author of  an excellent blog called lazymanxcat. She is from Dimapur in Nagaland, and I interviewed her on my recent trip to the state for an article I am writing about fashion in the North East. There’ll be a bit more from her soon, but for now here she is wearing a Mawi necklace very well indeed.

I think this is my favourite ‘She Wears It Well’ yet- what do you think?
