Zadig & Voltaire SS16 — Rock n’ Roll Meets Boho

True to their rock n' roll and bohemian way of life, the Zadig & Voltaire SS16 collection combines edgy looking pieces—think oversized metal eagle belt buckle and black leather overalls—and soft sheer blouses with girly details. The collection also includes cotton dresses, a fringed suede jacket, black and white cowboy booties and an amazing peach…

Lola Loves… Carolina Amorim’s Coloured Thread

Daggers, lasers, or maybe just a steely glare. All things that can be shot from one's eyes. Figuratively, of course... unless you're a superhero. Artist Carolina Amorim traces the gaze of her models with coloured thread. Some travel in straight lines, others in geometric shapes. A daydream, perhaps? Lost in thought? There are no vacant…

Berlin Fashion Week SS16: Runway and Backstage Photos

Dazzled by the colours and contours of Ayala’s new collection, which flowed from the girls with such fluidity and grace that each subtle movement was mesmerising. Varon’s morbid futurism pulled attention too, the beauty of which was supplemented by a passionate description of the unfathomably precise nature of their production delivered by Varon himself. Photographs…

Our 10 Favourite Songs from Alan Vega and Suicide

"Suicide was never supposed to be entertainment," said Alan Vega. The protopunk pioneer and frontman of Suicide, has died last Saturday at his home at the age of 78. The New York duo, comprised of Vega and Martin Rev, were among the first to describe themselves and their dissonant sound as “punk.” Unsettling and unpolished, Suicide made minimal and stripped down electronic music that sounded like white noise on a black backdrop. They created an atmosphere of anxiety and urgency—like the soundtrack of a movie that will put you on the edge of your seat.

Photography: Kimber Beck’s Self-Portraits

The photography of 25-year-old Kimber Beck takes the form of self-portraits with a retro feel. Her work might be better described as body portraits that explore intimacy with the body of the self, and with the bodies of other women. Captured in whole or in part, female bodies are often found in surreal contexts and contortions. Intimate and dreamy, the subjects of her pieces are often faceless and unclothed—or wearing only underwear.

Alexander Wang SS/16 Collection Is All About His Squad

Alexander Wang has a Wang Squad. No, seriously, they even have an Instagram account (@wangsquad) of tall, beautiful and impossibly aspirational it-girls such as Lexi Boling, Anna Ewers, Binx Walton and, lately, Kaia Gerber (Cindy Crawford’s mini-me daughter). So, unsurprisingly, the Alexander Wang SS/16 collection isn’t about the clothes, it’s about his squad. This collection…

Lola Loves… Yutaka Kitamura’s Time-Lapse of Petals Unfurling

Flowers—lush, beautiful and ethereal. Huge, full blooms never get old. Japanese artist Yutaka Kitamura created time-lapse videos that capture the twist, shake and bounce of each flower as it blossoms—something impossible to observe at normal speed.  Part of a collaborative art project entitled "Touched by Strangers," the hypnotizing images depict the movement of individual petals unfurling, as they open up to reveal the stamen and pistil. It's nature's striptease.
