MOMENTS | Link up: Nike + R.T. Air Force 1, Vivienne Westwood x Anti-Fracking, BANKS, Le1f’s Music Video “Boom”, Josef Albers
Staying relevant on the go.
1. “I come from the street. I’m in high fashion couture, and that’s my success. But it wasn’t planned. It just came naturally. I’ve got couture clients and I’ve got young generation. And I never forget about the young generation.” – Riccardo Tisci
The Nike + R.T. Air Force 1 collection hits stores today. The Fader interviews Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci on his collaboration with Nike and on designing something that pushes new boundaries.
2. Vivienne Westwood led the London Fracked Future march in protest against fracking. Watch the queen of rebellious fashion discuss her life in fashion and politics.
3. BANKS covered Aaliyah’s 1998 “Are You That Somebody” for BBC Live Lounge, and the result is total aural bliss. Listen to the acoustic cover via SoundCloud.
4. Le1f flips burgers and serves fountain sodas at a futuristic diner-nightclub in his new video for “Boom”. Could this be an homage to Kelis and her “Milkshake”?
5. Spring has finally arrived (sort of), and Another Magazine has “The World’s Best Window’s” in art and design.
Our favorite has to be the works of Josef Albers—designer, photographer, typographer, printmaker, and poet. Albers’s abstract works of optical experimentation challenged the way we see and understand color.
