TEENAGE

Just watched the trailer for Matt Wolf’s “Teenage” and it looks like such an interesting and also thought-provoking movie. A mix of rare archival material, filmed portraits and 20th century diary entries it deals with the coming of age in a historical and cultural context.

“Before the ‘Teenager’ was invented, there was no second stage of life. You were either a child or you went to work as an adult. At the turn of the century, child labor was ending, ‘adolescence’ was emerging, and a struggle erupted between adults and youth. Would the young be controlled and regimented, or could they be free?” (Soda Pictures)

Proenza Schouler AW13

We love the new Proenza Schouler campaign (again) for Autumn 13. A beautiful and daring sci-fi mix of cosmic digital imagery fused with flickering feathers and birds meeting the beautiful clean silhouettes of the clothes. Wow! Photography by David Sims and model Sasha Pivovarova.

Making Faces (nerd alert!)

This lovely documentary “Making Faces” has just been re-released and we want to see it!

“The film captures the personality of the late Canadian graphic artist Jim Rimmer (1931-2010) and follows his hands-on method of creating typefaces from the preliminary sketches through the cutting and casting of a single letter. The design featured in the film would become the basis for the first-ever simultaneous release of a digital font and hand-set metal font.” (via p22.com)

La Vie d’Adèle

Blue is the warmest colour (La Vie d’Adèle – chapitre 1 & 2) by Abdellatif Kechiche won the Palme d’Or at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. We can’t wait to see it when it premieres as it looks very emotional and uncompromising. One of the main characters is the BEAUTIFUL Lea Seydoux that we adore.

Spring Breakers

We haven’t seen Harmonie Korine’s new movie Spring Breakers yet, but it looks absolutely insane! So we couldn’t help but chuckle when we saw that Opening Ceremony released a small collection to accompany the premiere …

Maddie on things

Cutest little photo project ever! Now released as a book.

“Maddie is a sweet-tempered coonhound who accompanied her owner, Theron, on a year long, cross-country trip while he worked on a photojournalism project. In his spare time, Theron took photos of Maddie doing what she does best: standing on things. From bicycles to giant watermelons to horses to people, there really isn’t anything that Maddie won’t stand on with grace and patience.” (via Chronicle Books)
