MOMENTS | Mash-up: Watch FKA twigs’ Self-Directed Music Video For “Glass & Patron”

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

For the upcoming YouTube Music Awards, FKA twigs directed her music video for “Glass & Patron,” a new track from an EP that will be released later this year. The music video begins with a pregnant Twigs who then gives birth to colorful scarves that morph into, as stated in the press release, “the most epic vogue battle of all time.” “Glass & Patron” was also co-written and co-produced by Boots, who also made an appearance in FKA twigs’ Google Glass ad. “Glass & Patron” is one of 13 new videos presented by the 2015 YouTube Music Awards, but we think this one might be our favorite.

MOMENTS | Mash-up: Clayton Vomero’s Gang is a Dance Film For the Vogue-Tumblr Generation

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

Produced by Jefferson Projects and directed by NY-based filmmaker Clayton Vomero, Gang is Saturday Night Fever for the digital age, featuring a soundtrack by Alex Epton and a cast that includes Ghostface Killah’s son and the Major Lazer dance team. The dance film follows a day in the lives of its protagonists—Infinite Coles, Mela Murder and Denasia Moore—as they soul-search by subway dancing and voguing their way around Staten Island. Dazed and Confused has a first look at the film, a 17-minute clip, and an in-depth discussion with director Clayton Vomero about what inspired him to create a feature on vogue and youth culture.

BAMIN NOTES | Trend: Mix & Match Utilitarian & Luxury Looks Like the Best of NYFW’s Street Style

New York Fashion Week just happened, and the best street style we saw didn’t resist the bitter NYC cold snap. The most innovative outfits managed to work with the freezing temperatures, combining more practical pieces like denim and even duck shoes with patterns, bright coats and fur jackets. While documenting NYFW’s street style for Vogue, photographer Phil Oh snapped a photo of model, stylist and writer Natalie Cantell mixing patterns and colors by rocking a leopard and orange neomesh BAMIN duffel. The mash-up of leopard and neomesh creates a fantastic contrast of high-low fabrics, and we really love how much the leopard and neon orange pops next to Natalie’s navy blue and black ensemble. Street style in NYC has always been about mixing high fashion with the utilitarian for looks that are both innovative and effortless.
