Former designer of Dior, Hedi Slimane, updated his online diary yesterday with some really beautiful photos of a Daft Punk concert. His eye for patterns and texture is so amazing. I’m also pissed because the bastard got to go backstage and hang out with them… he knows what they look like!
YMC or You Must Create is a London based brand that was started in 95′ by designers Fraser Moss and Jimmy Collins. I saw YMC earlier today at American Rag and was totally taken with it. Their clothes are simple and well made, and would work well with a lot of other things you’d own. What really stood out to me were their amazing cardigans. Really great stuff to see.
Last Sunday, Jeff and Garrett and I headed over to Venice Beach for the day just to be by the beach and to check out all the freaks. I, of course, must bring my camera to such amazing events. Below the cut is another 49 pictures of our amazing afternoon.
I just found this amazing picture of the inside of Daniel Libeskind’s new addition to the Royal Ontario Museum. I would love to take a trip up to Ontario and see the addition, which Libeskind calls ‘The Crystal’. It’s so epic and beautiful looking. The picture above was taken by Sam Javanrouh who runs an awesome site called Daily Dose of Imagery. Be sure to pay his site a visit and check out all his great photos.
I haven’t covered many photographers lately, so I’m excited that I was introduced to this guy. Timothy Saccenti is a music photographer/videographer who has some amazing work on his site. Everything is really dark and moody with brilliant colors. Be sure to check out his video for the song ‘Atlas’ by Battles while you’re over there.
The last few years have shown a resurgence in the awkward teen movie category that the 80’s made so popular. Rocket Science, a story about a guy who stutters and decides to join the debate team to win over the girl of his dreams, reminds me a lot of Thumbsucker, which I loved. The movie was directed by Jeffrey Blitz, who also did he amazing Spellbound, the hysterical documentary about spelling bees.
The movie comes out August 10th.
Vinyl toys are so passÃ©. What’s really cool are little kids with giant robot friends made out of wood! Take-G Toys makes these really fun toys with all sorts of shades of wood, blending the old with the new. I want the ones above so bad, I mean, who didn’t want a hover car as a little kid? Hell, I still want one.
Check after the jump for some more fun pictures.
BBDO New York has created some new ads for BBC Worlds arrival in America. Pretty clever stuff, and the photographs work so perfectly with the campaign.
