MOMENTS | Link up: Chanel Supermarket, Alexander McQueen, Travoltify Your Name, Beach House x Space Project, Paul Trillo’s Double-Exposure Music Video
Staying relevant on the go.
1. Karl Lagerfeld’s FW14 collection for Chanel may be his finest reinvention yet. The influence of street culture invaded house staples—the tweed suit, the pearls—in the best way.
Lagerfeld had a supermarket built for the runway as a reversal of last season’s art gallery and to drive home the point that “fashion is supermarket fodder”. It’s the ultimate mishmash of the decadent and the banal.
3. The Oscar Awards happened, and while there were some well-deserved wins, John Travolta definitely called Idina Menzel “Adele Dazeem”. Slate has a name generator that lets you “Travoltify” your name.
4. Listen to the eerie new Beach House track “Saturn Song” from Space Project. Space Project is a compilation album of songs built around sounds recorded from space.
5. Inspired by double-exposure photography, NYC-based filmmaker Paul Trillo shot story-telling footage and overlaid the video with The Peach Kings’ band members to create a wonderfully textured and ethereal music video for “Be Around”.
