Solange: Losing You



Yesterday was month Eight of the Intragram trial (or is Nine? I'm losing count...) and I slept through the whole thing. The way to go, waking up to find it's all over. As for the whole after palava, trying to have a relaxed attitude, clearing the week of commitments and just rugging up in bed with ipod, thankful to family and friends for making that possible. I'm in need though of some new music to keep things interesting. 
This video by Solange for 'Losing You' I've been meaning to get up here for ages. Filmed in Cape Town, and featuring some of the Le Sapeur community (a subculture originating in the Congo) it walks down that fine line that is exploitation but thankfully, I think, comes out on the right side.

Visually I can't resist it.

Comic Book Heroines for Prada Spring 2018.

While 1960s comic book heroines featured on bags, coats, cardigans, shirts and dresses for Prada's Spring 2018 collection there's a kind of 1980s subtext here too. With the PRADA font, the colour palette - lots of bright red and electric blue — plus those silhouettes. It's hard then not to think of a 1980s night club when I see this collection — the underground print press with screen printed posters  and thus a little bit of punk too. All very pre-Madonna. Yay Prada!











Studio Space - Jodie Cunningham.

I love images from artist studios and the spaces where they work. This is the amazing studio and gorgeous work of artist Jodie Cunningham. Jodie works in so many different mediums — often recycled materials and always with attention to colour. If you love colour this space is particularly divine.




Tim Walker's Egon Schiele inspired editorial for i-D magazine.

Tim Walker's recent work for i-D magazine is recognisable instantly for its source inspiration, artist Egon Schiele. Along with stylist Jakob J they do a gorgeous job recreating Schiele's bright, but sparingly used palette and the postures his models struck. Brilliantly cast too are the models, particularly Schiele's wife and model, Edith Harms.
