HOUSE OF HOLLAND

February 7, 2012 § Leave a comment

We are guessing that designer Henry Holland has had a looong vacation in Guatemala this year. Or he must have bought some kind of 80’s Mexican fashion book. Either way, by whatever he was inspired, he created this fun and charming resort collection. This is what we call the ‘double rainbow’ effect, you just can’t take your eyes from it!

For his video he collaborated with Mariano Vivanco to recreate Neneh Cherry’s ‘Buffalo Stance’ (1989) video. It’s not our favourite fashion video but let’s face it.. It’s straight to the point. Does this make it a bit literal? You can watch it below and decide for yourself.

QUENTIN JONES

February 4, 2012 § Leave a comment

We love Quentin Jones…but we secretly hate her as well because she’s just too good at what she does… She’s one of those people. Quentin is a London-based illustrator, a Cambridge philosophy graduate and one of the brightest young fashion filmmakers, who specialises in a cartoonish style of surreal photo-montaged animation. Her work is magical and her style is one of a kind. We were also quite surprised that she was Victoria Beckham’s choice for her latest collection’s video. Never thought Victoria Beckham would go for quirky and fun. Definitely the right decision though.

BLUEBIRD

there’s a bluebird in my heart that
wants to get out
but I’m too tough for him,
I say, stay in there, I’m not going
to let anybody see
you.
there’s a bluebird in my heart that
wants to get out
but I pour whiskey on him and inhale
cigarette smoke
and the whores and the bartenders
and the grocery clerks
never know that
he’s
in there.

there’s a bluebird in my heart that
wants to get out
but I’m too tough for him,
I say,
stay down, do you want to mess
me up?
you want to screw up the
works?
you want to blow my book sales in
Europe?
there’s a bluebird in my heart that
wants to get out
but I’m too clever, I only let him out
at night sometimes
when everybody’s asleep.
I say, I know that you’re there,
so don’t be
sad.
then I put him back,
but he’s singing a little
in there, I haven’t quite let him
die
and we sleep together like
that
with our
secret pact
and it’s nice enough to
make a man
weep, but I don’t
weep, do
you?

A TAKE AWAY SHOW

One of the best music blogs we’ve come across : La Blogotheque.

They share music with such passion.  They don’t only post amazing music videos but they describe them in a great way as well. The descriptions are in French though, sorry non-french speakers! They make you feel the atmosphere and it makes us want to teleport to that exact place.

Here are a few examples :

Chris Garneau – Between the bars. (which by the way, we are obsessed with) ‘There was low lighting, a menu scratched in chalk, smoky air, girls laughing, and clinking glasses. There was a dark, wooden piano, a hideous caricature statue of Gainsbourg, magazines strewn all about, and abounding discussion. There was a guy bent over the ivory with stooping shoulders, who seemed to be singing for his own amusement. His name was Chris Garneau…’

Yann Tiersen – Palestine & Amy. ‘You have to go down from a narrow staircase to get to his studio. The floor is full of cables. It’s intimidating enough to be here, we’re more used to be filming young new talents rather than ‘already famous’ artists. But all of those thoughts disappear very quickly seeing Yann is as frightened as we are. The musicians surround him. And all of a sudden, the group notion makes sense. This balance that dregs them makes sense.

Iron and Wine – Tree by the river. And yes, they took Sam Beam, aka Iron & Wine, ‘to taste some… wine, and then asked him to play in the cave, amongst the best bottles’

Soiree de Poche – A teaser. Bands in this video : Vampire Weekend / Beirut / The Dodos / Fool’s Gold / Andrew Bird / Kings of Convenience / Beach House

Bon Iver – Skinny Love. ‘A magic that depended on its intimacy, of course; on the acoustics; but, above all, on the reciprocity. Between each song, Justin took a few minutes to talk to us, telling us how happy they were to be there, on that particular night, with such a small crowd..’

SHAME

Little White Lies, Issue 39.

Emerging from the detritus of porn cuttings and dark ruminations, the new issue of LWLies is dedicated to Steve McQueen’s icy sex-addiction drama Shame, starring the sensational Michael Fassbender.

Cornered in his hotel room during the Toronto Film Festival, the ever-provocative Steve McQueen ruminates on free will, desire and his upcoming film Shame.The director’s sophomore feature takes an unflinching look at the destructive nature of sex addiction, following Michael Fassbender’s corporate drone Brandon through a solitary routine of meaningless sexual encounters.

‘The collide between morality and addiction, where one ends and the other begins.’

We CAN’T wait to watch it.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

TOUCHING FLOWERS

December 22, 2011 § Leave a comment

The film portrays a girl being aroused by a man in the room next door touching flowers. The house seems to shake as if she has some kind of telekinetic powers that are only activated at times of stress,” the artist and director Calum Macdiarmid  explains, before  adding “The end of the film is about the awkward moment after sex; its all good fun when the music is playing and everything reaches a climax. But then there’s that moment straight after, where you catch a glimpse of yourself in the mirror and you think ‘what on earth was all that about?’
