New hats & Scarfs @ OntFront store

Here are the new hats and scarfs available at the OntFront store. Hats are made of 100% cotton. Scarfs are Viscose and now in more colors (& prints).

Damn....Bonne Postma looks good

Now this cat is an old school mate from way back. The type that keeps it real. Bonne Postma is a controversial poet and copywriter with a unique style. Sharp and straight up. Being the anti-capitalist he is, we are very honored to have him wear OntFront. He's now struggling with a hell of a dangerous decease (the big C) and he's putting up a hell of a fight! Bonne you the man, much respect and you can do this!

Fashion Blogs - A book by Kirstin Hanssen

Kirstin Hanssen is a strong editorial writer with a whole lot of fashion sense. In the past she has helped us out by writing about OntFront on international Japanese blogs and she even connected us to retailers in Amsterdam. Now she has come out with an amazing book. A book about fashion bloggers. In the summer of 2008 she developed the idea regarding this book, due to the rising popularity of fashion bloggers. She specifically noticed the way how they present fashion news, communicate with readers and how bloggers all seem connected internationally. This formed the foundation of her book called Fashion Blogs, from musings on personal taste to style reports around the globe. Great work Kirstin! Here are some pictures:
