Miu Miu's WOMEN'S TALES Film No 8: "SOMEBODY"



'SOMEBODY' is film No 8 in Miu Miu's acclaimed Women's Tales series, an on-going project commissioning a host of female directors to critically celebrate femininity in the 21st century. Directed by performance artist Miranda July and with cinematography by Sebastian Wintero (Sia's Chandelier video), this latest tale explores the bittersweet relationship we have with technology, particularly in relation to the connection and conversation between strangers.

With the help of the fashion house and a development team, Miranda created the somebodyapp.com which allows you to send a message to a recipient that you can't (or don't) want to deliver in person - once the message is sent, the person geographically closest to your recipient then acts as a stand in and delivers it verbally for you!
It's basically the break-up solution we've all been waiting for, dumping someone over an electronic device is now totally acceptable because it's a fancy app. Try it here!

Back to the film, which also showcases Miu Miu's Autumn/ Winter 2014 collection as characters mix pieces with vintage and streetwear, presenting the everyday, reverse-engineering the clothes back to their origins. 

You can view the entire archive of films 1-7 via the Miu Miu website, but for now, watch the latest instalment below.... and you will crack a smile, even if it is Monday. 



 

Dreamshow: CHASING CONTROL x @NOWNESS



In collaboration with SHOWstudio's art director Matthew Williams (Been Trill, Supreme, Lady Gaga, Kanye West), musician Constantine V fronts his new punk-pop outfit Dreamshow's first release and EP title track ‘Chasing Control’.


Not only is this a beautifully shot and mesmerising video, but it's moody atmospheric feel works perfectly with the song's narrative about the pull of love and the loss of control, as Constantine's brooding, raspy vocals bleed through this emotionally melodic indie-rock ballad.
Watch below.

The Art of Dressing: i-D x Erika Kurihara



If you didn't happen to see Intel and i-D's collaboration with Swedish-Japanese stylist Erika Kurihara, then you can watch the artsy 3-part mini-film series below, which follows her journey from London to LA to shoot some of the city's hottest young creative talent.

Look out for the super-talented (and one of my favourites), photographer Ami Sioux, who brings Erika's portrait story together with her unique eye for capturing personalities from behind the lens.








Café de Flore - Doctor Rockit (Charles Webster Latin Lovers Mix)



Fragmented, mystically atmospheric and a little fantastically offbeat are just three ways to describe director Jean-Marc Vallée's 2011 film "Café de Flore", an experimental offering which alternates between two different tales of love and heartbreak in France and Montreal - neither of which are emotively stirring to be fair, but the heavily slapped on amour fou in the French story is seductively engaging at times.
The reason I'm writing about this film though has nothing to do with the storyline or characters, and everything to do with its soundtrack, and having heard it completely by chance again this past weekend, I'm sharing the track which seamlessly flirts its way throughout the movie with a sexy hint of Frenchness about it. 

Check out Doctor Rockit's 'Café de Flore' (Charles Webster Latin Lovers Mix) below.... pure Parisian ear porn for your next dinner party soirée.

VIDEO: Imogen Heap - Entanglement

It's pretty much obvious what Imogen Heap is up to in her latest video, which has been released ahead of her appearance at this weekend's Reverb Festival.
‘Entanglement’ portrays a side of the singer rarely seen, an intimate take on her more personal and sensual experiences (which is basically the classy way to put it).

Watch the video below and her new album ‘Sparks’ is out now to download via iTunes HERE.
