Restoring faith in the future. Four To The Floor is back for a third series. Accurately representing the attitude of 16 to 24-year-olds without condescending or disingenuously adopting quick-fix, zeitgeist-chasing trends. Dan Boulten launches his book ‘No Turning Back.’ A 10 year documentation of Southbank. Stage designer Es Devlin has created her first solo installation – a multi-sensory space that explores how scent can trigger memories.
To celebrate the launch of our new campaign we start of with a 30 minute film from iD Mag entitled Gurl Talk. Microsculpture by Levon Biss is a photographic series unlike any other as Biss tries to capture insect’s never before seen details. Last up we have Construction Workers Graphic Tees which are just straight up rad.
RA’s Art of DJing series focuses on renowned german DJ Objekt, Tom Cockram photographs the bedraggled bikers of Biarritz and if you haven’t seen it already, watch Young Thug stop the VFILES show and adjust a models outfit. Real or a clever PR stunt?…
