The Fox's Den

French from Zim & Zou, have recently illustrated the window of the Hermès store in Barcelona located in el Paseo de Gràcia. An amazing hand made composition made with paper, coloured with blue and orange showing life of this dandy fox in his den. A surreal treat.

Kenzo X Toiletpaper = crazy love

This is the third season that Kenzo’s creative directors Carol Lim & Humberto Leon have teamed up with Toilet Paper Magazine’s creatives, Maurizio Cattelan, Pierpaolo Ferrari and Micol Talso.Speaking about the campaign Carol Lim said: “This being our third collaboration, we were interested in figuring out ways to evolve the past concepts into something that felt different but still in the spirit of both Kenzo and Toilet Paper. Since the collection was inspired by David Lynch, it was natural for us to incorporate some of the emotions we experience when seeing his work.” 

The proper sneaker

This very visual black and white video by Loren Denis aims to answer, what makes a classic sneaker? The video is an interesting ride through exploring the sneaker world in a unique form that is worth checking out.

Patience

Photographer Josef Hoflehner and his 25-year-old son Jakob started to slowly build a body of work titled “Patience” in 2006. “Once we find preferred spots we often wait for days, often a week, and sometimes even longer just to get the right weather and light combination," Hoflehner says.

“You may not believe in magic, but something very strange is happening at this very moment. Your head has dissolved into thin air and I can see the rhododendrons through your stomach. It’s not that you are dead or anything dramatic like that, it is simply that you are fading away and I can’t even remember your name.”

DAMAGE CONTROL-ED

 After running a successful online store for a year, brothers Alexandre and Anibal Furtado opened this cool menswear store called Damage Playground in Rotterdam.

A seamless combination of lifestyle and art. The minimalist design has a gallery feel, with canvasses, projections and prints. Very stylishly damage controlled.

wink, wink!

"Over a couple of magical days in Paris we asked our favourite boys and girls to act out our favourite slogans from 33 years of i-D covers; from "Ask Me" to "Zip!" If in doubt, wink, peace and pout!"

This crazy-cool short film features 26 of the magazine's most memorable cover lines from 1980 to 2013.

Director Jérémie Rozan and fashion director Charlotte Stockdale shot the video, the 'A-Z of Wink!'

EYE-CANDY

Lady Gaga_Candy.jpg

Lady GaGa joins a long list of celebrities who have graced the cover of Candy magazine.

Unlike James Franco and Jared Leto, she does not don drag. Instead, she chooses to showcase her full body, including everything down below, in a black and white Dali-esque photo shoot. Bold. Celebrating "transvestism, transexuality, crossdressing and androgyny in all their glory."

Rivers, liars behind the sun.

Stockholm based Simon Stålhamrhe has one of those vocal tones that just drags the listener helplessly into a world of beautiful despair. His EP, Liar Behind the Sun is a great mix of sounds.

This video for Small Feet’s Rivers is a catastrophe in reverse. Watch as the man runs and runs on fire backwards to where his journey began, like the moments of disaster that stay with us and play themselves out in slow motion.

Falling back to earth.

Spectacular and meditative, a beautiful, thought-provoking vision of our relationship with the earth and with each other, ‘Falling Back to Earth’ by Cai Guoi-Qiang.

The centrepiece of the exhibition ‘Heritage’ features 99 replicas of animals from around the world, gathered together to drink from a blue lake surrounded by pristine white sand. The second installation, ‘Eucalyptus’ responds to the ancient trees of Lamington National Park in the Gold Coast hinterland, while the third ‘Head On’ is a striking installation of 99 artificial wolves leaping en masse into a glass wall and is on display in Australia for the first time. Regarding his art the global known artist explains: ‘My work is like a dialogue between unseen powers, like alchemy.’
