London based all-round creative participant Ade Udoma just dropped his latest track entitled “Death of A.D.E” in anticipation of his upcoming project, which will be revealed later this week. The highly addictive track, which was produced by Krash, has an introduction by J. Robert Oppenheimer, the creator of the atomic bomb, talking about the reaction of when the bomb landed on Hiroshima. The artwork shows the execution of John the Baptist, who was killed for fore telling the future. (Caravaggio, 1607). It’s a metaphor for the necessity of A.D.E to get to the next step, which will be the ‘Thy A’Priori‘ project launching on wednesday. “An avant-garde inspired art and music outfit, created and curated by Ademide Udoma.”
In celebration of our 300th article we pay homage to photographer/film-maker and founder of Mirage Magazine, Henrik Purienne. No-one manages to capture the beauty of the female body and spirit only slightly the way he does. His work is highly erotic, but not in a cheap way at all. “Very 70s playboy meets 80s national geographic”. He also shot some campaigns for American Apparel, only the good ones of course. The pictures are timeless, yet they hit the vein of our present beau ideal.
Each season rising designer Simon Porte Jacquemus constructs a female character who embodies the spirit of the collection. And while her look and mood changes from season to season, her loose hair, make-up free face, and broad smile are enviable constant. The photography is an important element in the communication of the young label. Their lookbooks give you kind of an amateur-homemade feel and connect to the audience on a personal level.
The collection consists of minimalistic, perfectly coloured pieces with a subtle, youthful french touch. Browse the lookbook and coverage of the fashion show after the jump. (more…)
With his album only one month away, Kanye West performs a huge stunt to promote his new tune “New Slaves”. Well what’s the best way to promote a song that’s basically a ill creative rant hitting powerful people? Right, my thoughts exactly, you just project Kanye’s face on tall buildings in the biggest cities around the world at the same time and let him spit his verses on us slaves. The track is ill, a trill beat, kanye spiting hard verses pretty monotone and at the end Frank Ocean sings. Perfect song right? I guess we can expect him to perform this track on SNL tonight.
Go to http://www.kanyewest.com to see when the rant is coming to a place near you.

It was just some days ago that we featured New York based photographer Sofia Malamute on our magazine, and today she strikes back with a Paris F/W 2013 Tribute Video for V Magazine. Captured in her iconic black-white style along with intense music by Pascal Moscheni and Luigi Carillo it creates a goosebumps-feeling.
Our focus today lies on ADYN Clothing, a UK based brand specialised in high fashion street wear. They produce a line of avant-garde basics – Simple Tee’s with leather accents, leather pants, oversized sweatshirts and of course long tees. Everything makes you think of Kanye’s style, well maybe because the models in the S/S 13 Lookbook are wearing the iconic Yeezy II sneaker. So far we love what we see and we are already excited for upcoming collections.

What began with a more than three years in-depth study of forms, colours and surfaces is now finally available in stores: DD01, the first pair of a series of eyewear as result of a collaboration between Berlin based label Mykita and the croatian born designer Damir Doma. What is striking about the new glasses is the usage and the melange of precious material: the combination of cool stainless steel and warm natural horn creates both visual and haptic contrast reminiscent of the characteristic mixture of coarse, stiff fabric and soft flowing textures in Damir Doma’s collections.

Intense, surrealistic and spacey are the attributes that describe this new Mix by lao. best. Remember the time when you had Daydreamin by Lupe Fiasco on repeat? That was a “slightly” different take on the classic Daydream by The Wallace Collection. This track is not from this world.
