Suzanne Ciani is one of electronic music’s greatest pioneers

Suzanne Ciani

Suzanne Ciani is the creator of one of the advertising’s most universally recognisable sounds: the clink of a Coca-Cola bottle being prised open and poured into a glass, the bubbles fizzing intensely and colliding into one another. The sound was far richer and more effervescent than a real bottle could ever be – that’s because it was created using a Buchla modular synthesiser, an electronic instrument named after its inventor, the late Don Buchla. It was used…

How to disrupt the rules of dance

From Florence & The Machine’s “Delilah”

Catch London choreographer Holly Blakey in the studio, and you’ll see her circle her dancers like a bird of prey. Eyes transfixed, body unconsciously mirroring their movements, she’s not looking for mistakes, but ways to improve things, a perfectionism that has brought her to the top of her game both as a commercial choreographer and as a pioneering artist.

Starting when she was three-years-old, in a small ballet school in a…

Meet the stranded refugees making music in the Malian heat

The Sound Of Refugees, Jean-Marc Caimi

Human spirit is captured by photographer Jean-Marc Caimi in the Mberra refugee camp, where a rich musical culture flourishes against all odds. Titled “The Sound of Refugees”, the series focuses on a camp situated in the Islamic Republic of Mauritania, just miles away from war-torn Mali and hosts 50,000 refugees. Despite having lost their homes, Tuareg and Arab musicians inhabiting the camp are determined not to…

Kembra Pfahler: fearless, shocking and in fashion

kembraLR1

A black bushy wig with a crooked bow, thigh-high laced vinyl boots, a naked body fully covered in red paint, eyes are heavily glittered, her teeth blackened – an old Japanese tradition practiced by wives and geishas. She looks a mixture of B-movie hellcat and Femlin, a mischievous character from an old Playboy magazine. She’s horrendous, and at the same time horribly seductive.

On stage, she’s joined by half a dozen of her lookalikes. These “coven meets vaudeville” ladies…

Cara Delevingne wears suit of butterflies in her music video

Cara

Cara Delevingne has dropped an offbeat music video for her debut song “I Feel Everything”. The track features on the soundtrack for Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, and the visual was directed by filmmaker Luc Besson.

Spliced with expansive, action-packed clips from the Cara-starring sci-fi film, the model, actor and author sings the slow, jazzy, Pharrell-produced track in a selection of questionable wigs. And then she dons a CGI…

scotland diaries: part 4

Ah, the last leg of our Scotland Diaries is here and I have to say, it’s quite bittersweet! While the trip itself was quite short, Alisha and I packed in as much as possible, waking up early each day and driving back to our hotel pretty late each night. It was worth it though. Hands down, probably one of my favorite trips to date, with some of my favorite photos to show from it.

For the very last part of our journey, we trekked over to Glasgow, which, much like Edinburgh, is an architecture nerd’s biggest dream. We only had less than 24 hours in town, so we made use of a hop on/hop off bus (sometimes they’re just the perfect way to see a city and cover a lot of ground in a day)! I’ve noted our albeit brief itinerary below. Enjoy!

And, in case you’re just joining now, be sure to check out Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3 of my Scotland Diaries series.

WHAT TO SEE AND DO:

The University of Glasgow: If you caught my Edinburgh guide, you know I’m a bit obsessed with Harry Potter. So let it suffice to say, the University of Glasgow was at the top of our must-visit list while in town because of it’s uncanny resemblance to Hogwarts. Unfortunately, by the time Alisha and I made it there, they had already stopped admitting tours through the buildings itself, but we did manage to roam the grounds. The amazing column hallway you see here is part of their Cloisters and it’s breathtaking.

Glasgow Cathedral: In addition to really old schools, I’m a sucker for really old churches (this one dates back to 1136!). The stained glass. The artwork. The acoustics! Usually, if I have the time, I’ll sit in a back pew and close my eyes for about 20 minutes. It’s amazing what you can hear and absorb in a space like that, and Glasgow Cathedral is no different.

Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum: If you have the time, definitely dedicate a good portion of the day to roam around Kelvingrove. The grounds are beautiful and it houses over 22 different themed installations, ranging from natural history to arms and armor. Of note, they have Salvador Dali’s “Christ of Saint John of the Cross” on display and that alone is worth the visit.

 

WHERE TO EAT:

The Drugstore Social: This was likely one of our most indulgent meals of the trip, likely because we had stayed up SUPER late the night before trekking back from the Isle of Skye and it was officially our last night in Scotland. And Drugstore Social was the perfect ending note! We happened to pop in on a night when they had a live jazz trio performing (always a plus!) and we snagged pretty everything that looked yummy off the menu (which is to say, we ordered a hodgepodge of everything). We both loved the smoked trout flatbread and the wild garlic gnocchi. It’s situated in the West End, which Alisha and I both agreed is the neighborhood we’d live in, if we moved to Glasgow tomorrow.

OUTFIT DETAILS: Who What Wear trench coat (sold out, similar style here) // French Connection dress (old, but similar style here) // Chloe bag // Celine sunglasses // Aldo boots

WHERE TO STAY:

Dakota Deluxe Hotel: The minute Alisha and I walked into the Dakota, we were pretty smitten! In comparison to the Principal in Edinburgh, the Dakota is a very modern take on Scottish heritage — the decor is rich and dark in nature (think lots of dark leather, deep mahogany walls) and the art work has a personality and flair all it’s own. It felt like a chic, modern take on a rustic library.

Huge thanks to the Visit Scotland Tourism Board for inviting us on such a lovely trip and to WOW Airlines for helping us hop across the pond!

IT’S A FLORAL STORY

Charlotte Groeneveld from Thefashionguitar wearing Valentino Fall 2017 floral suit

At first sight this very much looks like one of those “dark romance” stories, but don’t let the late afternoon light fool you… Isn’t it amazing how the floral print pops against the dark background – which was basically just a perfect play of light at the time we shot this. Truth is, shooting during the summer is hard. Not only because it’s most of the time too warm to wear anything else than Dolce bustiers, or go outside of the AC at all, but also because the light is TERRIBLE to work with. There is almost no way around it; harsh shadowing on the face, shiny forehead, and over exposed backdrops… BUT, when you play it by the rules and stick to the “golden hours” – which as you can see doesn’t mean the light is yellow, it means the right time to get beautiful images – you get THE BEST shots!!

Needless to say, I’m not showing you this look only because I love how the photos turned out, what I truly wanted is to make my point about wearing floral silky suits, matching sneakers, and/or clashing bags. My love for colors and prints is growing bigger, and I’m here to show you that so much is possible, but it’s all about the right balance…

So here it is: Pier Paolo Piccioli making the perfect Valentino Fall 2017 floral suit. As with all mixing of patterns and prints, it truly is 100% about a certain balance. I have still not found the exact formula to success, because every time I’m mixing new patterns and prints, I get new insights on what works and what doesn’t, but I believe it’s mostly an underbelly feeling. You know it when it’s right, and you know when it’s not – and in case you don’t, ask me! I admit that on first sight, I didn’t exactly fall in love with this mix. However, when I put it on, I fell hard… not literally of course – although that could have happened too, considering the length of this pants, the sample, was made for VERY long model legs, and not even wearing some sort of heels with it – but fallen with the mix of beautiful craziness. It is a mix we wouldn’t have though about, would we? Well, here is proof that it can work. It has to be “your thing” of course, but you know me, I’m all about that “surprise factor”. It makes everything so much more fun!

New IT trailer offers most disturbing look at Pennywise yet

Pennywise

The most in-depth trailer for the film adaptation of Stephen King’s IT has dropped following its premiere at San Diego’s Comic Con. In it, we hear Pennywise the fucking freakiest clown alive speak properly for the first time, and get a full in-action shot of him in a room full of clown dolls. Great.

Detailed in the second visual to come from IT: Part One, The Loser’s Club, “When you’re alone as a kid, the monsters see you as weaker. You don’t even know…
