The return of Grimes is imminent and it is going to be huge. Rihanna reject track (not sure how this angle managed to make so much press, I mean, this shit happens all the time) ‘GO’ was supposed to act as a teaser of sorts, it has clearly been more successful than anyone anticipated – it was being played on Radio 1 this week and the video (directed by Grimes and her brother) clearly has some hefty budget behind it (see preview above). The video is set to drop this week and the cover of the new issue of POP featuring Grimes also just landed, there are two versions but the Instagram edit below is all kinds of genius, cultural statement-y.
This track has to be one of the best things I have heard in forever. The video is pretty genius too. You should read my friend Bradley at MuuMuse’s review here. This is the sound and vision that HAIM should absolutely stick to, creatively and sonically.
For a singular fragrance within the ever growing range of scents from Tom Ford across Private Blends and the main range to warrant its own campaign says a lot about how Black Orchid has been critically received. Here is the campaign, photographed by Mario Sorrenti and starring Cara Delevingne.
I don’t know why but this seems so old school and awesome. I love that the fashion industry (a moment like this at least) is almost parody of itself. So Conchita Wurst, LGBT icon and Europop sensation is the new Andre J. First she walked in and closed the Jean Paul Gaultier couture show and now Karl Lagerfeld has just shot her for CR Fashion Book.
According to CR, “Her music and “drag-to-riches” story have captured many, which is why she—along with pregnant model Ashleigh Good—were chosen to represent the emerging fashion icons of today.” According to Karl Lagerfeld, Conchita “gives new meaning to the term drag” and for his most recent couture show, Ashleigh Good walked the runway, with child, in bridal couture.
Break The Rules is an awesome taste of Charli XCX’s new album Sucker. Finally an artist getting the recognition that she deserves. It’s legitimate punk rock and everything that it should be. Rules, officially broken.
