Although most of us are still trying to figure out our fall wardrobes, New York and London just completed it’s Spring/Summer 2012 fashion weeks. After two seasons of very strong colors, pastels are making a comeback for next summer. Soft blues, sherbet oranges and lemony yellows are in almost every collection BUT what’s new is that for the first time this season, these colours are getting mixed with blacks or edgier shapes and prints. Milan is following this trend as well. “Sweetness.” is Miuccia Prada’s summation of her new collection.

Taking inspiration from our previous post ‘THE KIDS ARE ALRIGHT‘ , we decided to interview motocross rider, Can Hakko.
pop.see.cul : Tell us a little background information about yourself.
Can Hakko : I was born and raised in Istanbul. I go to an international community school named IICS. It’s my last year of high school and at the moment I’m just trying to keep my grades up . I’m pretty excited to go to college in Los Angeles very soon. I love chilling with my friends, girls haha, riding motocross with my best friend..basically just having a good time. I hate people who are close minded. Oh..and I hate any sort of heavy metal devil worshiper type of people.
pop.see.cul : Could you tell us how you got involved in racing motocross?
Can Hakko : I started riding when I was five in Bolu, a town in Turkey. I did it behind my dad’s back. As he rides aswell, he knows how dangerous it could be at times. But I think that when he found it out, he was secretly happy and proud.
pop.see.cul: When did you start racing motocross & how did you do in your first race?
Can Hakko: My first race was when I was 14 and it was horrible! I can’t really remember everything but I know that-this is pretty embarassing– I threw up right before it and I finished pretty bad!
pop.see.cul : What do you do when you are not shredding up the MX track?
Can Hakko: I usually train 3-4 times a week and go out with my friends. I try not to party too hard when the racing season starts, it would be a disaster to race with a hangover!
pop.see.cul :Who is your MX hero ?
pop.see.cul: 3 words that describe motocross?
Can Hakko : That’s a hard one. Well first of all adrenaline pops into my mind. I really don’t know when I’m going to crash, I don’t know if I’m going to crash that day, well hopefully not- but the feeling of it is just amazing. Second is..um, the ‘unknown’ because you never know what’s waiting for you in the next turn-what’s going to happen in the next 10 minutes, what you’re going to see, what your going to experience. The third one is… I think it’s being grateful that I can actually live this experience, just riding my heart out. I guess not a lot of people can experience this feeling.
pop.see.cul :Who is your favourite singer at the moment?
Can Hakko : Lil Wayne, Kid Cudi, Kanye West..yeah you get the idea…Oh! Tyler the creator..I love Tyler,the creator, I don’t know why..I think it’s the fact that he acts as if he was an asshole and doesn’t give a f*ck about his actions. He’s basically trying to piss people off and he does it in such a funny and clever way! Plus, he didn’t sell out to main stream, he still doesn’t really care about the shit people rap about these day. Nowadays, all you hear from people at the radio is how they have so much money, champagnes, gucci blablabla and Tyler is the last person to talk or brag about these kind of stuff.
pop.see.cul: Wow, you do really love him. Thanks Can!
Can Hakko : Thank me? Thank you!
