TANDANSSE: Comme des Garçons Menswear S/S 2011

The skull and blood red were the only two graphic elements Rei decided to work this season. Not a dark skull, but a decorative, mixed, sometimes even funny school, on jackets, pants and skirts (yeah, skirts for men, are you one of those who still find it weird?). It was impossible not to be reminded about McQueen, who made skulls more than a fashionable identity. The blood red jackets were almost lonely on the catwalk, but their presence made a statement. The shapes and cuts were perfect for the contemporary man that loves Kawakubo's touch of humour. Mad collection, in a good way.

The Rolling Stones at Villa Nellcôte

Often referred to as one of the greatest rock records ever made, Exile on Main St. is a staple in any music lover’s collection. The stories & myths behind the creation of this album in the dungeon of a basement at Villa Nellcôte in the south of France are part of Rock N’ Roll folklore, and are captured beautifully in Dominique Tarlé’s black & white pictures, the photographs enhance the already electrifying experience.“… I realised that pictures are far more important than the photographers themselves... the whole of the game was to remain invisible and to have the least possible impact on what was going on around me.” -Dominque Tarlé, 1971

Richards said it looked like it was decorated for 'bloody Marie Antoinette'

James Joyce

This London-based artist and designer started his own studio, called One Fine Day, in 2006,  strong colours that, together with bold hand-drawn lines, graphic shapes and often innovative typography, characterise his output.


Berlin-based street art collective Mentalgassi, whose members remain anonymous, have had their work exhibited at galleries in London, Miami and Germany. Their wheat-pasted installations draw on the city environment for inspiration – “people going by bike, riding the subway, the harbour, music, crowded parks in the summer, the city by night…” – and have appeared, unofficially, all over the world. Transforming everyday street fixtures and fittings – from ticket machines to buildings – their cut-up poster technique aims to “reduce anonymity in public space”. Blowing up photocopy-style images to cover walls and objects, the works add a sense of fun and surprise to grey city streets.

Lovebox Festival, London

Seven years old, Lovebox has become a must do event on the bristling summer social calender.

Held annually on London's oldest public park bordering Bethnal Green, Hackney, and Bow, London's most creative and socially dynamic quarters, Lovebox as a festival, urban event or "happening" is without comparison.
You can’t beat London as the hippest place on the planet, the Lovebox Weekender is proof of that” Gilles Peterson
Music has always been at the heart of Lovebox; with all the Rock & Roll chaos and glamour of supercharged sets, epic performances with dramatic backdrops, and chuggy jams under the trees from bands and DJs spanning the genres.

Anyone coming to Lovebox can traverse their way across an incredible musical landscape hand picked by a bunch of real fanatics turning each other on to new and old bands, DJs and musical styles, be it folk, hip hop, indie, disco-punk, rock, world or electronic music. It's very much a case of the whole being "greater than the sum of the parts.

“Festivals don’t come much better” 
Time Out London

"In the hidden corners of Lovebox it still felt like you were part of something deafening, furtive and special" 
The Observer - July 2008

"Winner - Best Medium Sized Festival" UK Festival Awards 2008

"Winner - Party People Award for Dance Music" UK Festival Awards 2006

Gilbert & Georges

Gilbert & Georges are a duo of contemporary artists. They are best known for their bright colored large scale photo works, called The Pictures. But they began as live performers, a performance called « The Singing Sculpture », but i’ll let them explain it to you.

Since then, the suits they wore turned into some kind of uniform they wear in public appearence. Moreover, they regards themselves as « Living Scupltures », insisting on the fact that everything they do is art.
Later they created their Pictures, large panels of photo works arranged as mosaics or some kind of stained glass. 1994 serie called Naked Shit Pictures will attract media attention, due to the « shocking » content.
They are still productive and exposed arond the world in galleries and museums of contemporary art. I leave you here with some of their MAD work.
