What a journey that would be…
What a journey that would be…
Love Rodarte for Opening Ceremony collection
and most of all
Papa in 1944
Oaft! This is going to be amazing…
Boarders Travis Rice, John Jackson, Scotty Lago and Mark Landvik, among others, travelled to Alaska, Aspen,Chile, Patagonia, Jackson Hole, British Columbia and more to create The Art of Flight. This film looks like more than your average boarding movie, it’s in a whole new league of its own and I can’t wait until it’s release in September! Goose pimples!

Ohh to spend a night in one of these cosy looking Whitepods…

According to NME’s website (and numerous others) Björk is currently half way through a new album and planning a winter tour….! eeeek!! Every time she plays I try to get tickets and have no luck or she’s playing in far off lands, so this time round will be my time! (I hope).
apparently one track is inspired after the experiences she had at a conference held by National Geographic Magazine, I’d imagine that track will be pretty epic (note. Epic is not a word I use lightly, or ever use for that matter!)
“I saw 100 talks and met eccentric people who had been in Africa for four years with lions and insects,” she said. “Then one night after drinking whiskey with them I began to hear stories. This is one of the collaborations I can talk about.” Björk for Icelandic newspaper Fréttablaðið
I can’t wait and I’m already crossing everything in my body in the hope I’ll get myself a golden Björk ticket!
LA based designer Mike Gonzalez, former designer and founder of label Mike and Chris, has branched out with his self titled label. The SS2011 collection is a mix of African inspired mud cloths and prints, sheer, geometric cut outs and there’s some military in there too. Personally I love this collection, especially the turbans. Check out his pre-spring/ summer collection over on his site, which isn’t quite as lovely as the SS collection but still has a few great pieces.
Below are photos by LA-based photographer Nicholas Alan Cope. I’m not going to try putting in to words how I feel about this series entitled ‘Paper’ as I won’t do it any justice! Check out his other work here. His still life work is incredible, they have the aesthetic of paintings depicting 16th century banquets but with less of the indulgence and gluttony seen in such paintings. Nicholas’ work is definitely worth a look.
