Sleepover LA

A Trip into a Downtown Dreamscape from Indie Filmmaker Lily Baldwin

Transitioning from performance into film has made so much sense, as all film is choreography,” says Lily Baldwin, the writer, director and star of the darkly comic short film Sleepover LA. “Articulate bodies reveal what words can’t.” The Los Angeles filmmaker draws on her background as a professional dancer—with choreography credits that include Blood Orange, David Byrne and Brian Eno—for the surreal tale, and wanted to experiment with the power of minimal dialogue. “The camera can create an intimacy that's not possible from the stage,” says Baldwin, whose co-star is Nicole Disson, another West Coast multi-hyphenated creative and the film’s producer. Disson is currently performing in The Least Important Things at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and her series of 13 immersive art performances at The Standard, Downtown LA, helped secure the hotel’s location for the project. “In this instance my character has a real stoic quality to her that the role of producing lent itself to,” says Disson, revelling in the duo’s creative multitasking. “Calling action and cut for myself was a hoot,” adds Baldwin. “I tried to transfer this split personality tension into my character Taylor’s shy nervousness.

Our Vinyl Weighs a Ton

Kanye, Madlib and J Dilla Share the Screen in a New Documentary On Hip-Hop Institution Stones Throw Records

Hip-hop was stale, like the worst kind of bread you don’t even want to feed to ducks,” recalls Portishead's Geoff Barrow of the creative torpor that afflicted the world of beats and rhymes in the late 1990s. In part it was Stones Throw Records that helped rescue the rap game—and now it is getting its due as the subject of a compelling new documentary directed by Jeff Broadway, Our Vinyl Weighs A Ton. Equal parts tragedy and celebration of the human spirit, the film shows how the tiny independent inspired some of the biggest names in music, from Kanye West to Snoop Dogg, the Beastie Boys to the Roots.

Stones Throw is the life’s work of Californian Chris Manak, better known as Peanut Butter Wolf. Manak launched the Los Angeles imprint in 1996, to put out posthumously the rhymes of his close friend and musical partner Charles Hicks, aka Charizma, shot dead in a car-jacking at the age of 20. As the label’s reputation grew, Wolf found a new figure to inspire him in the shape of prodigious beat alchemist, Madlib. Working in the studio from 7pm to 7am every day and fueling his endeavors with epic quantities of magic mushrooms, Madlib took hip-hop to new levels of nuance. His innovations earned small-time Stones Throw a big-time reputation, and attracted another visionary to the label—Detroit's J Dilla, whose production skills are discussed in tones of reverence by hip-hop cognoscenti, not least Yeezus himself.

Dilla’s death from a blood disorder at the age of 32 is a shocking moment in the narrative. But the release of his instrumental album Donuts just three days after his death in 2006 sealed Stones Throw's reputation. Today the label is home to musicians of every stripe, from soul singer Mayer Hawthorne to guitar bands like Stepkids. “Most of the things I sign are things that nobody's heard of,” says Peanut Butter Wolf with a smile of pride. “In 30 years I want to find Stones Throw's records either in the $100 bin or the 99 cent bin: I want people to really love it, or really hate it.”—Tom Horan

Vivienne Westwood -- Get Your Feet Wet! Vivienne Westwood: Wash Cruelty Down the Plughole

Vivienne Westwood: Wash Cruelty Down the Plughole

She's famous for making fabulous (and often vegan-friendly) fashion – but in her new video for PETA, Dame Vivienne Westwood forgoes clothes altogether for a cause close to her heart – saving the planet!
For World Water Day, the iconic British designer explains what taking long showers has to do with being an eco-warrior:

The stylish ad was directed by Robbie Newby and scored by BAFTA-winner Carter Burwell.
Dame Vivienne has a point – it takes 15 times more water to produce 1 kilogram of meat than it does to produce 1 kilogram of fruits or vegetables. As she says:

"By avoiding meat, you do more for the environment than recycling or driving a hybrid car combined"

The meat trade is also responsible for extreme, industrial-scale cruelty to the billions of animals it mutilates and kills each year as well as contributing to global problems from deforestation to world hunger.

Fancy having a squeaky-clean conscience like Vivienne?

It's easy to stop eating meat – millions of people around the world already have. Sign our pledge to wash cruelty down the plughole and try out a plant-based diet for 30 days. Also, order our free veggie starter kit for recipes, info and advice to help you make the switch.

UNDERCOVER Hong Kong Renewal Opening Party Recap

For those familiar with the “rose walls” of the UNDERCOVER Hong Kong store in the past, the space’s recently-revamped interiors might come as something of a surprise. But while the new aesthetic is based on principles of minimalism, designer Jun Takahashi’s ideals still exist and the concept of “mass and accumulation of an object” remains unchanged. Step into the world of Takahashi’s latest creation and you’ll notice the sea of light bulbs hanging over you - 20,000 of them to be exact. This was an idea that was first introduced at the Aoyama store, and followed by the brand’s other locations. Another focal point is the large classical painting by Joachim Patinir, a piece of art that was chosen for its reflection of Takahashi’s sensibilities, and its exploration of the struggle between good and evil, and heaven and earth -- the design language of UNDERCOVER. For our latest episode of ObscuraVision, we spoke to Jun Takahashi for a discussion on the overall concept and key elements of the newly-renovated chapter, as well as the thoughts and inspirations that influence his unique body of work.

We Got 20 Strangers Who Aren't Models to Kiss Each Other

Earlier this week, an "arty" black-and-white video in which polite Americans kiss each other on the mouth made the internet squeal with excitement. The twist was, you see, that these people were all strangers, so this was footage of ten first kisses—gross saliva sounds fully audible over the sort of song that a depressed person might put on during sex.
It was really awkward and sweet, and so far it's had more than 47 million YouTube views. Many bloggers called it "beautiful," but it was mostly beautiful because all the people that director Tatia Pilieva cast were models, actors, and musicians—that is, professional performers. Oh, and also it was a commercial for clothes, because everything that goes viral on the internet is a lie or an ad.
So our London colleagues went out into the street and found 20 strangers who aren't models of any description to stick their stiff British upper lips together for £20 (about $33) a pop. This is how strangers really kiss.

Angkor Mandala Sequence

This project expands on the idea of how tourism affects the spiritual experience of the temples of Angkor. I wanted to explore the interrelation of traditional past and developing present at Angkor, and questions what they mean for the future of this historical and sacred site. Originally reserved for religious activities, these structures are now some of the greatest tourist attractions in the world. These timelapse-loop videos meld the experience of tourism at Angkor into surreal, kaleidoscopic images and sequences inspired by Theravada Buddhist mandalas, in which the frenetic activity of backpack-toting tourists passes like the shadows of ever moving clouds over the weathered, ancient stones.

Mine All Mine

Spring-Summer Pieces Are Brought to Balletic Life in an Interactive Short.
A troupe of contemporary dancers from London’s Sadler’s Wells Theater engage in an elegant game of chase in Mine, a film by director duo Tell No One AKA Luke White and Remi Weekes. The filmmakers have created an interactive, motion-touch short where half a dozen underwear-clad performers are styled in shoppable pieces from labels including Louis Vuitton, Kenzo, La Perla, Maison Martin Margiela and Bottega Veneta. “I thought they should be dressed in clothing capable of expressing emotion,” explains stylist Agata Belcen. “The film doesn't straightforwardly distinguish between male and female roles, and so it was important in the styling that the clothing could also be understood in masculine and feminine terms.” Influenced by the naturalistic approach of Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker, Tell No One enlisted Italian choreographer Paolo Mangiola to translate the frenzied desire of online gratification into an impassioned routine which features Madonna and Florence and the Machine collaborator Amber Doyle alongside dancer-turned-model Louis McMiller. “Luke and Remi's film feels magical but still of this world,” adds Belcen. “It was important for the styling to support this mix of reality and oddity.

What makes a shoe? Is it the brand, the shape, or the function? More importantly, what makes a shoe different from the thousands upon thousands in the world? We can’t say that we have found all the answers just yet, but we can suggest starting at the beginning—the inspiration.
Inspired by the work of Ellsworth Kelly and Brice Marden, the AE16 Trainer is all about texture, contours, and color. Monochromatic planes of texture and material combine to create a shoe that is basic and beautiful, a shoe in its purest form.

Most Shocking Second a Day Video

It may not be happening here but in Syria the horror portrayed in the video is all too real. Three years of civil war has devastated the lives of an entire generation of children. It's cost the lives of more than 11,000 children and turned more than 1 million into refugees. It has subjected them to trauma, indiscriminate shelling and even torture.

Save the Children is doing whatever it takes to keep Syrian refugee children and those trapped inside Syria, safe and healthy. But Syria's children need all of us to demand peace if they are to have any hope for the future.

KENZO Women Fall/Winter 2014 Show


David Lynch has proven to be one of the most interesting and insightful directors, artists and musicians of our time. His imagination and ingenuity can stimulate forgotten emotions through his canny use of whatever medium he chooses. Following our men's and pre-fall collections earlier this year, the KENZO women's Fall-winter 2014 collection is the crescendo in a trilogy of collections inspired by his oeuvre. Working with him on the set design and music for this show, we find ourselves drawn into the head of the creator, and explore the various beautiful, idiosyncratic and elliptical characters he dreamt up for his myriad of works. We delve into the body of pieces which have portrayed love, revenge, the strange and mysterious with equal candor.

David Lynch : "I really liked working with Humberto, Carol and the people at KENZO. I wanted to try to get a different feel for a runway show, having mystery and emotion swimming together."

Our silhouette holds contrasts in volume, and everything is amplified. Lean and tall or high-waisted and exaggerated, the structure remains resolutely, ultra-feminine. Collars are reinterpreted, blown up and tied around the waist as nonchalantly and intimately as the appropriation of a man's coat. The whole world is wild at heart and weird on top. Tool creatures, printed and embroidered onto jackets, skirts and pants come in woods, metals and perspex. Tailored suits are quilted with down. Fox fur coats in "Wild Lula lime", "Laura lilac" and "Midnight Dorothy" transform with detachable paneling. Lacquered twill jackets in flame inject fire colors to the palette. Skirts and dresses with shaved kangaroo are paired and layered with cross coats and embroidered and shredded organza. Foiled mohair grosgrain ribbons appear as belts and as inserts on trousers. Prints this season come in warped versions of habitual vistas, the David Lynch herring-bone flooring and reflections of a mountain in shattered glass. A layered organza adds a 3-d effect to skirts and tops. Sweaters feature high definition tryptic embroidery and metallic foiling.
For accessories we were inspired by a northwestern american steelworker's vestiary. Safety boots in pony and rubberized leather feature trapeze buckles in copper or matte metal. The Kalifornia is revisited as a tote for fall in knit, wool or printed quilted nylon. Pochettes in nylon and fur trimmings walk alongside those inscribed with the timeless "forever, no?".

The Queen 1968 Documentary

The Queen was filmed in NYC in 1967 and released in theaters in 1968. In 1967 it was illegal for men to dress as women. The documentary follows a 1967 Drag pageant judged by Andy Warhol among others. It stars Jack Doroshow aka Flawless Mother Sabrina, Richard Finochio aka Rachel Harlow and Crystal LaBeija. Crystal went on to start The House of LaBeija pageants which was the premise of the 90's documentary "Paris is Burning." In 1972 Richard Finochio underwent sex reassignment surgery to become Rachel Harlow, she began dating John B. Kelly, Grace Kelly's brother. The relationship ended when John's mother said she would disinherit him if he married Rachel. Rachel opened the Philadelphia night club "Harlow's" in the 1970's. The only person to surface since this classic film was made is Jack Doroshow when he was interviewed by James St. James on youtube. International Chrysis (1951-1990) can be seen as a teenage boy rehearsing dance numbers. These are the Queens who opened the doors for RuPaul and RuPaul's Drag Race of today.
