To survive the streets of New York City, Warhol started to design ads for the legendary I. Miller, shoe establishment, that would appear in the New York Times and the Herald Tribune. A decade before the Pop-art existed, Warhol was already advanced in his work He took his shoe illustrations so seriously that he submitted in 1956 one of them as a gift to the Museum of Modern Art, unfortunately it was rejected. And so there it all began the fascination for shoes.
Therefore the look of the bottle; truly Warholian shoe designs that was created 50 years ahead of their time. The scent is composed with floral woody chypre (chypre meaning fresh citrus top notes and a lingering forest-like base) with highly coveted contemporary gourmand notes—a brew of peony, orris, patchouli, sandalwood, cardamom, fennel, almonds, cumin, and even crème brulee. A seductive and intoxicating autumn-winter fragrance, Andy Warhol Lexington Avenue is the perfume equivalent of that rarity.
The Andy Warhol Lexington Avenue is available in 2 different sizes
50 ml - $135 and 100 ml - $195
at Bond No. 9’s four New York City boutiques, http://www.bondno9.com/ and at Saks Fifth Avenue nationwide.

You started a new business called Monster Creator? What does the name mean or for what does it stand for?
Yes, how can I describe it in a easy way? Uuuhmm, today I had a business meeting and my contact had a big laugh about my company name he thought it was fantastic! Your best friend becomes your biggest enemy. But on the other hand, I’m very good in creating original idea’s and concepts, so I see it as something creative, you understand me right? Yeah you do...
Selling your concepts in fashion, music industry...Why did you choose that industry and not something else?
I guess that's the hole I keep fallin' into
Do you have any favorite brands in fashion?
Not really, I like vintage stuff, I wear t-shirts, Levi's jeans, Vans sneakers....thats about it, my favorite designer of all time is Azzedine Alaia ( I had his dress and got stolen...for real! )
I like all kinds of music...Beatles, Coldplay, Biggie, but I’m not down with that reggae shit
Tell me about the plans with Monster Creator, what are your intentions, goals, achievements etc?
As you know I photograph for quite some time, it’s more a Monster Creator Management, I will manage some peeps in their work and I will keep on selling my idea’s and concepts to specific company’s in fashion, music etc.
Can you give me a scoop about who you're managing now/future or what kind of projects you're busy about?
I’m busy with a lot of stuff and all kinds of people as in fashion,music. Sometimes I forget what I’m busy about, I guess, I will always continue creating stuff that I’m good at, and that’s creating some things that others can’t, I think, are interesting projects...coming soon more
You're in this business for some time, how did you started?
I’ve never been to school for Photography. I got for my 20th Birthday a camera from my stepfather. I just started playing with that thing. I remember the first time I went outside with my camera, I made shots from garbage cans, astrays, that kind of stuff, the weirdest sh*t. I liked it! My first assignement was for Kees de Koning @ Paradiso. Some Hip Hop artists were performing and I asked if I could make some shots and at the same time there was also another photographer for newspaper Parool or Telegraaf, can’t remember very well, and he came to me and asked if I could mail my pictures to him. Yes weird! Apparently he liked my pictures more than his and the next day my picture was on the second page, the whole page! After that...everything went fast....
Did you always wanted to do this?
No not really, I wanted to be a surgeon, but didn’t finished my study. I thought with Photography I can make money now, It was a way of surviving and it paid very well.
What is the most memorable thing you experienced in your career?
A Photoshoot at a videoshoot in New York for 2 Unlimited, not because of the Group, but it was fun and enjoyable, helicopters, limo’s and sh*t, but also meeting Notorious B.I.G. ( RIP ), Uuhhmmm N.E.R.D. in London, Paris, was also very funny and almost forgot during a press conference I saw Angelina Jolie, don’t ask me anything, I was just staring, such a beautiful woman. She has a aura that overshadows.
You always keep a low profile, how come?
Tsja…that's just me... You never see me exaggerate with my camera. People that know, they know and if they like my work, they know where to find me.
Where do you see yourself in 10 years from now?
I hope I’m alive and kickin' and healthy and happy on my way...magic islands?? My future residential yard??
What is the most proud thing you ever done?
I do a lot of things that people don’t know about, I just keep it to myself, there’s is nothing to brag about, him up there knows it
Give me a quote..
Fuck if you do, fuck if you don't......censor that shit hahah, let me get back to you for that, I don’t know LOL
I; Mitchell Gray, would wear this tracksuit like every day 24/7 if I get the chance..
We ran into this myspace profile of this guy named Harvey Bouterse, we were so stunned that we needed to post his work on our blog. He's an incredible designer.....truly admire his work.
The reason why I; love HrVi's collection is, because it's fitted and I am a very slim person, but not to forget what his bio mentioned, his collection is very small and exclusive, so that each piece becomes a personal item, finished to perfection.
We will follow every step he takes in the future from now on.
And "Nen Xavier" in Rotterdam
Keep up the good work Harvey..!! We love love love IT!
For all our blog readers.. u can check Harvey out urself;

So in those 8 years I saw Philip now and then at party’s B-boying. And I have to say, he became a great dancer! He travelled around the world, showing what he got. Besides B-boying he started his own company called Soultrotter Productions. He creates concepts for video’s and short movies. www.soultrotter.com
I was really sceptic in the beginning, but he convinced me in every single way! So Philip I respect your hard work, it definitly paid off, you impressed me and I find it a joy watching you! If you see the video, you’re gonna agree with me! BIG UP to you my B-boy friend!
Just keep in mind......when it has arrived, it can not be tamed!
It is a mobile art festival held at the Martin Luther King park. When you have good weather and by that I mean NO RAIN!, at night you have this really living in a different world for a moment kind of feeling ambiance.
For me it reminds me of the American fun fairs. You can visit some theatre acts, eat food from different countries, play games, watch movies, just a relaxed fun night out.
So go and see the Parade.....With good weather!!!!!
Spotted: Percy Irausquin, haute couture designer, waiting for tram 1 to arrive.
Time is passing by and our stomach’s are crying for food. First thought is Brix, but unfortunetly it opens at 5PM. So option nr 2....Palladium, not really one of our favorite spots anymore, but the food is good and we didn’t want to think to hard where to eat. Yummie yummie.....I ordered my favorite Club Sandwich, Mr. Gray and Nick hamburgers with fries and LL the Palladium salad. We talked for hours about business, yes work never stops in our schedule, life, future plans, love etc. Simlpy the come together again conversations between good friends!
So what are we going to do next....? Hmmmm let’s think.....the Movie’s! Because Mr. Gray and I still haven’t seen Sex and the City we deceided to watch that movie...Yeah finally!!!!! I know, how come we still haven’t seen that one right, just simply busy, other priorities....and yes I have to be in the mood to go, I’m not a big fan of the cinema’s. I’d rather see it at home on my own couch, wearing my oversized sweatpants and T, eating whatever I want, drink whatever I want and plus there are no annoying people around me that can ruin my night out.
But to stick with the story........I LOVED the movie..!!!!!!!!!!!! Gosh....there was drama, comedy, fashion.....everything what this movie needed, well in my opinion. It was a good ending for our day out together!
We had LOL like we always do, living in our own world, seesing the day! Aaaaahhhh we’re living the good life, like it’s golden!
But my story isn’t actually about them. It is about this cute little B-boy Kid, age max 5, that was doing his thing. Yes you heard me correctly!!!!! A 5 YEAR OLD KID B-BOYING in the middle of Leidse square. He even had his own little cardboard to breakdance. He was spinning on his head, making the split, standing on his hands, real B-boying! The only sound that the audience made was….WOW!!!!!
So Big UP! for this B-boy Kid....! You are a talented person, hope one day you'll gonna shine even more and share it with the rest of the world!
