  • Extraterrestrial Life on TRAPPIST-1 Planets Confirmed?

    Back in February, you may remember our post about NASA's newly discovered TRAPPIST-1 solar system about 40 light years away from Earth.

    Today marks one of significance for space exploration and planetary understanding. This year, Professor Stephen Hawking suggested that humans will need to vacate Earth within the next 100 years in order to survive as a species, as he claimed our planet may soon face a natural doomsday.

  • "Time For Reflection" - Blood Brother x Guinness SS17 Capsule Collection

    From London to Dublin, we've teamed up with the sublime and internationally adored brewery Guinness, for a unique capsule range.

    After being approached by Guinness themselves, we looked deeper into the well-respected global giants and found that their brand ethos and direction was something that we didn't only share, but were also led by. Blood Brother's conducts paired with Guinness' like quality and consistency are identical and this ensured us that we could create something special. Their long term commitments to creating a powerful legion were an inspiration to us from the get go and so we didn't hesitate to invest are certitude into the project. With togetherness and quality at the forefront of the campaign, there are 8 pieces that showcase a "nostalgic look at time and reflection".

    We feel that teaming up with Guinness allowed us to open up to collaborations outside of fashion brands and finding common ground was easier than we first thought. The collection sees quality garments that feature blurry graphic t-shirts, outerwear embellished with gold detailing and distinguished fabrication (velvet and studded leather) that is bold, elegant and ever-evolving, which is something we both serve.

    The collection will be sold exclusively at Harrods in pop-up style or online through Farfetch, our site and more of our favourite online retailers. Be sure to stop off at the Guinness Factory the next time you're in Dublin.

     

  • NASA Announcement - 7 New Planets?

    Yesterday, NASA announced their latest discovery through a live-stream news conference via their website. All eyes were on NASA this morning and the pure jaw-dropping news that stunned many quickly catapulted into the headlines. As they casually announced the discovery of seven habitable planets, all a similar size to planet Earth, they also mentioned that these planets circulated around one single star.

    The newly-found system has been named Trappist-1, which stands for Transiting Planets and Planetesimals Small Telescope. Within this system you are able to see the other planets that are up close, just like those fantasy films you and I dream of being real. It could be a matter of making a fantasy a reality this time round. With space technology thriving, we may begin to see a lot more during the next few years with the potential of the industry to grow even more. With a consistent growth in the space sector over the past few years, we are hoping that it could be time for us to not just leave the country, but leave the planet.

    The planets have been listed as B, C, D, E, F, G and H and NASA are already picturing what life might be like. It's definitely something to be excited about, however it's just a small step into uncovering the significant answer to our question of whether life exists elsewhere already. Due to these exoplanets being trillions of miles away, it's debatable whether or not the atmospheres could potentially be sustainable or not.
