MOMENTS | Mash-up: Taylor Swift’s Star-Studded, Neo-Noir Music Video For “Bad Blood” Also Happens To Be A Kendrick Lamar Remix

We’ve curated the best of digital age-inspired creativity—from user-generated content, mash-ups, and remixes to collaborations between multi-disciplined makers.

That’s one way to send a message: Don’t f*ck with Taylor Swift (sucks to be you, Katy Perry). In the off chance that you didn’t watch the endless celebrity cameos in Taylor Swift’s Sin City-inspired music video for “Bad Blood,” the fact that it’s also a Kendrick Lamar remix is the only motivation you need to check it out. For the video, Lamar named his character after viral star Welvin Da Great and contributes two previously unheard verses to the 1989 track. And we can’t help but wonder if he’s sampling from his own “Backseat Freestyle” when he raps, “All my life I got money and power/ and you got to live with the bad blood now.” Let’s just take this moment to enjoy how the biggest names in pop and hip-hop seem to get enough of a kick out of each other’s music to band together for “Bad Blood.”

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.

Staying relevant on the go.

1. Per usual, Miuccia Prada’s collection stole the whole damn show. And the entirety of Milan Fashion Week. 

The FW14 runway remixes the greatest hits of the early ‘30s and ‘70s; Art Deco industrial prints were mixed in with the references to the German avant-garde of Werner Fassbinder‘s films.

2. Karl Lagerfeld’s FW14 collection for Fendi didn’t disappoint either. The show notes tell us the vision is brutal poetry, and vague as that may be, the result was a great blend of textiles—bonded mesh, tweed, and patchwork patent and leather bombers.
