Staying relevant on the go.
1. Opera meets “Tron” at the Moncler Grenoble FW14 presentation, and the result is one of the most fascinating New York Fashion Week shows we’ve seen.
2. Opening Ceremony’s FW14 show was delicious. Literally. While we were impressed by the collection itself, the chocolate waterfall that oozed down the white walls definitely had our attention.
As part of the #BoFLive interview series, The Business of Fashion’s editor-in-chief Imran Amed interviewed Opening Ceremony’s Carol Lim and Humberto Leon about their rise in the fashion industry.
3. It was the 50th anniversary of The Beatles’ first appearance on “The Ed Sullivan Show”! Watch Arctic Monkeys perform a cover The Beatles’ “All My Loving” at their first-ever headlining show at Madison Square Garden.
Then listen to Lauryn Hill, in her first appearance since being released from prison, cover the Abbey Road track “Something”.
4. BAMIN (Build And Make It Now) bags are made of interchangeable parts—a little like Legos.The Lego Movie premiered Friday, and the consensus is that it’s pretty much amazing.
5. Time travel via iPad. The Yamada Taro Project, created by Katsuki Nogami, is an art project that swaps human faces with iPad screens in Berlin and Tokyo, allowing the performers to take on different personas.
