“This video was borne from a dream I had a few months ago about teenagers in their own world, a world with hierarchies and initiations, where the boy who was second in command had acne on his face, and so did the girl who was Queen. I dreamt about this world being so different to anything anyone had ever seen, a dark world full of tropical plants and ruins and sweat. And of this world, I dreamt about tests that didn’t need to be passed in order to be allowed in: sometimes the person who loses is stronger. Enjoy.” — Lorde
Inspiring movie about putting different artists in one white room with an A-list hip-hop artist, JAY-Z, to perform to them. But not only Jay-Z performs but he interacts with each of the artist individually. It’s so beautiful to see what comes out, breaking the boundaries and exploring a whole new territory! 1 word AMAZING!
Rick Owen sure knows how to show the people a new way of looking at his collection. Beginning inspired by African-American stepping – where the whole body is used as an instrument to make sounds by stamping, clapping and spoken word – Owens showed a collection with zipped-up, laced-up and tough-talking separates, making 40 fierce model “steppers” run the catwalk. The troop were selected by Owen from 4 sorority teams called: Momentum, Zetas, Washington Divas and Soul Steppers. Choosing this way of showing his fantastic new collection, it will stand out and be remembered.
Why don’t other designers do something refreshing and shake things up like this?
