Resan: Welcome to the Future

Resan, literally meaning “recent” in Creole, but redefined by Haitian band T-Vice, as “fresh”, is their new single that has everyone adding the urbanized word to their everyday vocabulary.

T-Vice, one of the most popular bands in Haiti, celebrated their 21st anniversary last weekend. Their countless singles and Carnaval songs have consistently been hits and have always led thousands of fans to sing along in every concert and ball. Their new single, Resan, is no exception.
image3With a futuristic theme of the year 2033, the music video redefines the image of the Konpa group as edgy and although having been around for 21 years, proves nothing less that they are in fact resan.

Transporting us to the future, the video starts off with the band members dropping from an alien spaceship on metal motorcycles with a futuristic new age look and dare we say it… Punk Rock! Leather jackets, spiked boots and cuffs, completely black shades, are all essential components of the desired look. The new age appearance is not limited to the band; the girls in the video are wearing all black, leather and punk attire as well. But nothing says future fantastic like extreme cat eyes and funky-colored lipstick such as purple, blue and bright pink.

What’s more, the Haitian group, took a futuristic concept to set a trend going worldwide. Punk, is coming back this Fall as it’s been on every major runway for this upcoming season. So hear us now fashionistas: grab those black leather jackets and rock those spikes and cuffs. Turn heads in a good way. As for our fashionistos: leather, leather, leather! No man can go wrong with a good leather jacket. It’s stylish while still allowing you to remain manly.
Reflecting this current trend in their video, T-Vice proved how “fresh” and “Resan” our little island really can be.

Wardrobe Essentials

“I HAVE NOTHING TO WEAR!”

Yes we’re all guilty, so don’t try to hide it. It’s very true that we buy nice clothes, but after a couple of wears, they feel old and you can’t match them with anything (neon prints??? laced bustiers? WTH?)

The key, as I have found, is to have your basics down. If you have durable, timeless pieces that go with absolutely everything, you always look put together and chic. Who cares if you wore that Proenza leather jacket to death? It looks even more amazing as it ages. “Didn’t she wear that pair of jeans last week?” Uh yeah, because it gives her a “Cul d’enfer”. Listen up people, you want to always look like you know what your doing when it comes to fashion? Well, get down with your basics and build around those key pieces.

– A white shirt that compliments your body shape.

Colors, Confettis and Carnaval

When we were younger, Carnaval or Kanaval was mostly associated with costumes, bals masqués and such … Now, all the hype of getting ready for Carnaval goes into styling T-shirts.

Commercial T-shirts in different bright colors and neons, are worn in various styles: fringes, holes, sleeveless, strapless, deep Vs and open backs … to each it’s own according to their individual style:
