Talented Fashion Designer Aira Voss combines a sense of luxury and glamour with a “magnetic sense of the present”. The collection ”Wild Majesty” manifests her search for the pure aesthetics at the very core of her “Rock Chic Ideal”, a hunger for timeless elegance and a true muse.

Visual greatness! Directed by Gordon von Steiner, Here’s the Givenchy X Barneys . A partnership between these two great brands for the Spring 2013. The symmetry of the shapes with the overlay of the models and abstract scenes in motion is absolute genius.

First Live Performance of Get Lucky by Pharrell Williams @ HTC Live New York 4/19/2013
The track is a collaboration between all four. The song is credited to all four people. Listen carefully and you will hear trademark Daft Punk basslines and other flourishes. Add the rhythm guitar of dance legend Nile Rodgers. All that was missing was some cheeky lyrics from Pharrell. We counting the days until the album release.
Nile Rodgers, he pioneered his own ‘funky’ disco sound back in the 70′s with Chic which pretty much influenced the early hip hop scene, produced and worked with some of the greatest Pop artists in the 80′s and 90′s and throughout his long career. And now collaborating with Daft Punk to make electro music. Nile Rodgers is a living legend!
Jeff Bark and Robbie Spencer kick off our May “Tribes” issue in spectacular fashion with an epic party staged in New York with supermodels Catherine McNeil, Noma Han and Sung Jin Park at the centre of the hedonistic reverie. Inside, post-punk priestesses Savages take centre stage with their most revealing interview and shoot to date; Rick Owens invites us backstage at Paris Fashion Week to meet his extended family; Stephen Whelan penetrates the online cam-boy sex-cult; and Dazed Digital blogger Lauren Schwartzberg explains why “drill” rappers are making the headlines in Chicago’s mean streets.
Also, Nathalie Olah meets the creatives battling the rise of nationalism in Hungary and Stuart Mahy experiences the buzz of Libyan road raging – and lamb bazeen – first hand. Further into fashion, Rachel Chandler shoots a gang of lads killing time styled by Elizabeth Fraser-Bell, Vara Ribeiro goes to Puerto Rico for a surf inspired story styled by Karen Langley featuring a tomboy Maria Bradley, and Chad Moore and Emma Wyman get cabin fever in the woods. If that wasn’t enough, Throbbing Gristle icon Genesis Breyer P-Orridge writes exclusively about h/er new gang – the young New Yorkers behind Grant Singer’s short film IRL.
The 2014 Range Rover Sport was revealed on the streets of New York City through a live broadcast event which allowed fans all over the world to witness the new SUV from Land Rover. And who else would be a better driver for the event than James Bond himself? Yes, Daniel Craig was the driver, and he did not disappoint!
The video shows Daniel Craig amidst some containers before the luxury SUV is lowered by a crane and he takes on the wheel with a timer so as to arrive at the New York Auto Show grounds in time. You shall get to listen to the acceleration and impressive exhaust sound of the Range Rover Sport. New York is the place it loves most as its predecessors sold more units in New York than any other part in the world.
Simply wonderful! Two songs from the film, Get You’re Self a College Girl, The Girl From Ipanema, performed by Astrud Gilberto, Stan Getz on tenor saxophone with Gary Burton on vibes, Gene Cherico on bass and Joe Hunt on drums. Also Whenever You’re Around, performed by The Dave Clark Five. The film was directed by Sidney Miller.
Armani Code Ultimate is a follow up to the signature Giorgio Armani Fragrance Armani Code from 2004. It has launched in August 2012. The new edition aims to be more intense, sensual and luxurious than its predecessor. The composition is signed by Antoine Maisondieu of Givaudan.
Watch the video below:
The top notes are shaped like a pungent mix of citruses (grapefruit and mandarin orange), juxtaposed to the unmistakable accord of star anise. Then, as the scent advances into its mid development stage, Code Ultimate turns to a floral woody facet highlighted by accords of cedar, cypress and heliotrope. After more than one hour, I was able to perceive the first accords from the dry down, in which the most obvious were the accords of vanilla and olive blossom, joined later by a combination which involved Tonka bean and guaiac wood in the composition.
The bottle is made from the same dark blue opaque glass with curvy shapes, except this time the stopper comes in gold, in order to differentiate it from the original.
This amazing short film highlighting select pieces from Givenchy‘s Spring 2013 menswear collection is both evocatively shot and atmospheric.
The nearly two-minute clip, produced by Barneys New York and directed by Gordon Von Steiner, uses a range of filmic techniques — including kaleidoscopic camera work and the contrast between light and shadows — to show off pieces that are already visually striking. Recurring black and white color schemes are complemented with prints depicting religious iconography, resulting in a feature that’s as artfully conceived as the corresponding collection.
Following a significant hiatus from French duo Daft Punk, forthcoming news reveals its newest release will come in the form of a full-length release titled Random Access Memories. Arriving on May 21 via Daft Life Limited, a bracket of Columbia Records, Saturday Night Live was the first to deliver news of what should promise to be one of the more anticipated releases of the year.
