Dark Shadows And The Moody Blues.

I've never seen the original tv series Tim Burton based his Movie "Dark Shadows" on so although I enjoyed the movie I did feel a little confused by the seeming changes of pace and style, not sure what direction the audience was being sent in - from tragedy to horror to comedy. Nonetheless the opening credits are up there with some of my favourite ever. The segue from gothic Victorian to Nineteen Seventies underscored by the Moody Blues "Nights in White Satin" is one of the most perfectly haunting I've ever seen. Goosbumps in the movie theatre as Bella Heathcote reappears, the tragically lost lover reincarnated two centuries later.

More Gucci.

More detail from Gucci Resort 2016. I like what Alessandro is doing with menswear. Long live embellishment.

Formation - Beyonce.

I'm a bit more for Solange Knowles but this, from Beyonce, is something else. I just can't stop listening/watching. To be filed under "Art Can Be Powerful".

More Is More For Alessandro Michele SS 2016.

Alessandro Michele is not just the best thing to happen to Gucci in a long while but to the whole of Ready To Wear. Multi colour brocade with tromp-l'oeil ruffles! Etc Etc Etc.
