Either the world is small or it's the ish-primely located home, but yesterday outside my flat, I bumped into Sonny Groo aka Abdul Lagerfield (some of you might know him as part of the amazingly dressed all-in-black fashion bevy controvertially captured on Jak and Jil and friend of Jean Paul Paula).  He gave me the heads up on his new online magazine Mykromag that he has started up.  It's surprisingly passionate for something that is uniformly BLACK and WHITE.  Profiles on people like Simon Robins (fashion director of Vogue Russia) and bids to shine a gleaming light on designers like Sander Lak and yet-to-graduate Toon Geboers goes beyond the call of an online javascript-laden site that is aesthetically pleasing and clean. 

Which is why it does cheese me off a little, reading the spew of comments on Jak and Jil accusing Sonny and Jean Paul Paula of being good-for-nothing bums who spend their lives constructing fashion week outfits.  Just yesterday Sonny was on a whirlwind trip around London conducting about a gazillion interviews whilst I was errr….busy buying anchovies at Tescos.  Well they can take Mykromag, a site that Sonny admits is a work-in-progress, and unleash it quietly without having to retort back to the naysayers. 

Two talents they've highlighted in the first issue of Mykromag are illustrators, Dinie Rahman and Ridhwan Sesapar both based in Singapore, sharing a very similar aeshetic… no surprise that it's their rendition of Giles' S/S 09 Pac-Man helmet that caught my eye.

    What a wonderful find! I love the illustrations and the clean feel of their website. I hate clicking on a site and feeling awash in banners and just cyber noise. I would say, however, that they probably need to introduce some color for their picture portion. It feels two dimensional without.
