Monokel by Pearse Lumb

What do you get when you mix two Swedes, skateboarding, snowboarding, and metal? The answer is Monokel Eyewear. 

Robert Sandgren and Fredrik Sävenberg are two swedish friends, avid snowboarders/ skateboarders and  metal heads who had nothing to do during a time when they both suffered snowboarding injuries. In their cool mini ramp filled office, where countless parties have been thrown and many shows have been played, Monokel Eyewear was born.

Monokel is based in Stockholm, Sweden. Handmade statement sunglasses that keep to their scandinavian heritage. They are simple, affordable and sleek. If any one knows what cool is ( and I think the world already knows) that Swedes do it best.

Grindr, Tinder... Wingman? by Pearse Lumb

Since the dawn of apps there has always been a fixation on how easy humans can make it to meet people of sexual attraction and hook up with them. The most popular and probably the most successful is Grinder; an app for gay men to find the nearest and most attractive (subjective) man and have a casual sexual encounter.  The second most popular app is most likely Tinder; similar situation as Grinder but for people of all sexual orientation. It is a little more luck of the draw as you swipe from side to side choosing yes or no and hoping the yes's you've selected randomly select you back. Then comes the highly anticipated, Wingman.

Wingman is probably the most interesting of these types of apps. It is an app that introduces you to people who are on your FLIGHT. Check in, check it out, make a move, and arrive at your destination. The fun lasts as long as your flight but the time sensitive app opens up so many possibilities. Wingman has yet to be released but has already been written about on http://time.com/6157/wingman-app-airline-hookups/ and video interviewed on Playboy TV. 

Creator Gabe Whaley has already told me that the app faces so many issues among people and their actions and can't wait to see what mischief is to come...

Famous Exploitations by Pearse Lumb

Society is famous for having the wrong focus. Handsome Creepers likes to show people for their they really are; for their true colors. Here are three ways that I'd like to advertise the correct representation of who we are and who we idolize.  

Terry Richardson is a fashion and portrait photographer who world famous for his controversial work and sexual assault allegations. He has been accused multiples of times exploiting young models to preform sex acts.

Kate Moss is an English model who is famously know for hugely influencing the fashion world. Popularizing the 199os term, 'Heroin Chic' and admitting one of her mottos is, 'Nothing tastes as good as skinny' Moss has been in the negative lime light. In 2005 she was caught on camera doing cocaine and yet her worth double.

Handsome Creepers by Pearse Lumb

Handsome Creepers is my pet project. It started out as an idea, a way of living and then formed itself into a blog/fashion line. The company was derived from a conversation with a peer which you can read below.  Handsome Creepers definitely makes you think about who you are and what it is that you want.

Girl, "Omg you guys would never believe how creepy this guy was last night"
Group, "Where were you?"
Girl, " I was at a bar and this guy came up to me and asked me where my boyfriend was. I told him I didn't have one and then he asked me who was fucking me then."
Group, "OMG what a pig"
Girl, " I was shocked and told him he's gross and he asked why 
and if he could buy me a drink! I told him of course not"
Me, " He sounds like a creep but did you find him attractive?"
Girl, "No! He was short and ugly!"
Me, " So if he was handsome and started that conversation you 
would have led differently and let him buy you a drink? Even 
though he's still essentially doing the same thing?"
Girl, " Thats different, of course I would let him buy me a 
drink, he is handsome!"
Me, " So you are all about the handsome creepers..."
