Nuvango is proud to present our latest capsule collection featuring famed artist Greg “Craola” Simkins. As an extension of the almost 10 year relationship between Nuvango and Craola, this collection features brand new artwork as well as some reimagined favorites, including Craola’s new take on a classic – the little black dress. Craola is inspired by the wonderful and magical worlds found in our daydreams; sourcing Narnia, Middle Earth and Neverland as some of his favorite spots to hangout. And frankly, we’re inspired by him. Craola has been everything from graffiti god to super surrealist, and we’re thrilled to be able to create wearable works of art that showcase his talent. Take a look at the collection yourself here and more press photos after the jump.

Shy Kids are a Toronto-based group of three musicians, filmmakers, roommates and best friends who recently put the finishing touches on their debut album, titled Lofty! The title was inspired by their Kensington Market loft where they made the album and debut music video for the first single “Ⓡ o c k e t s”.
The music video for “Ⓡ o c k e t s” premiered yesterday and the characters, places and objects in the music video were built entirely out of candy (which took about 9 months and $600 worth). Conceptualized and created from start to finish by the members of shy kids; from sourcing the candy, imagining the plot-line and all of the editing.
Even though right now their focus is on their music, they have strong roots and a background in film. You may have seen a documentary they premiered in 2013 called Noah which received critical acclaim and won best short film at the TIFF festival that year.

“October Sequence Tree is basically a piece of art, but in multiple forms – print, film, installation. How it came about was that one day i decided to get a copper plate, damage it in a playfully fun way via skateboarding, then print out all the activity it endured through a drypoint printmaking process. i documented what i did and made a short film about skateboarding, art, and process. and yes, it was edited in the sequence it was filmed.” –Arthur Lugauskas
Montreal’s Vesuvio Solo are synth heavy and hazy both in sound and visuals – Their video for ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ dropped last week on Gorilla Vs Bear and channels some serious Lindsay Buckingham.
