SENSES is a love story of two youngsters immersed in a virtual and digital world



SENSES is a love story of two youngsters immersed in a virtual and digital world seeking to explore new ways of feeling.

“SENSES portrays our way of connecting with each other in a NEAR FUTURE, and opens up the possibility of thinking about LOVE in the DIGITAL ERA. Will there be an EMOTIONAL CONNECTION through digital mediums? Will the VIRTUAL REALITY technologies introduce us to NEW SENSATIONS? We live this almost-love story of the CONECTION between two youngsters through ENCOUNTERS and MISSED ECNOUNTERS that could as well be real or product of their imagination.
Thanks to technology, we are more and more connected, we get to know each other, interact, even fall in love through digital platforms. With a Fashion Film aesthetics and strong and cinematic visuals, this film portrays an intimate story of two charactersin the constant search of new and more sensations, with whom many of us could identify. The aesthetic care is linked to the tendency of people in their attempt to reflect the best of their personality and making visible to the world how unique they are. We open up the idea to believe there is a digital and communicative revolution that may lead to a new variety of sensations.” -ALEXAN SARIKAMICHIAN

Sphynx Skin by Salvador Hernández, a photographer from Mexico City



Salvador Hernández, a photographer from Mexico City, focuses on the construction of characters and fictions by contrasting concepts in exaggerating and decontextualizing situations; using ambiguity, mystery and sometimes humor to set a mood.

Dictator & French Fries (the sphynx cats) were the main source of inspiration for this editorial, the way they move, pose and specially the look of their skin set the creative direction for lighting and color. I wanted to display across this editorial that distinctive air of sophistication and eeriness about the sphynx breed, using perspective, color and texture as a resource to create some sort of symbiosis between the cats and the model.

ASICS Tiger Debut

Sophia Wilson



On November 2nd, Toksick Magazine contributor Sophia Wilson and up-and-coming stylist Jared Martell attended the event premiering ASICS’ new line called ASICS Tiger.  The ASICS Tiger event was a fun, contemporary take on the pre conceived notion we all have about the brand’s sporty dad shoes and clothing.

ASICS Tiger collaborated with Japanese artist SNEAKERWOLF to create a limited edition collection which was released and given out to the guests— who were many of the most notable up-and-coming youth in the fashion industry (such as Alton Mason and Anzie Dasbe).  Japanese entertainers and hostesses called geishas carried intricate Japanese finger foods, such as sushi with mini soy sauce syringes injected, and with the help of neon lighting, it truly felt like we were transported to Japan.

The new minimalistic shoes have great structure and cool color ways.  ASICS Tiger is a great revamp on the classic shoe and collaborating with young artists, like they’ve been doing already, is definitely the way to continue on the path of ingenuity! The inclusive casting, as well, definitely helps the brand be more relatable to the mass— for example, model Dallas with his strawberry birthmark and Harley with his long dreadlocks (both pictured below)!  So, you’re going to want to make ASICS Tiger an essential in your closet whether that be shoe wise or their new clothes which are definitely worth mentioning. The first ASICS Tiger store in New York is now open at it’s convenient SoHo location 276 Lafayette Street!

An ode to braids and its signification of black culture and sisterhood



This editorial is an ode to braids and its signification of black culture and sisterhood. Besides being a viable option for those lazy days where we don’t want to deal with our hair, braids have served as a method of self-expression and individuality for black girls. Through the pull and tug of each strand, black girls are reminded of their strength and resilience.
