New Gatsby trailer has music from Lana Del Rey, Beyonce & more

Any venture of Baz Luhrmann’s is a full sensory affair, from audio to visuals. His work is also, generally, some exercise in taking something old and giving it cultural relevance to a new audience. I won’t write too much or too volubly about how Luhrmann’s biggest successes are the films that do this via music and costuming, or about how that all fits with a…

Live fast, die young, be wild and have fun

Live fast, die young. Be wild and have fun. Breaking rules and climbing fences, baring skin and letting emotions run wild. Jarrad Kevin’s shoot of model Cecilia captures that sense of rebellion that’s been a fascination in society for far longer than we can recall. It’s a sentiment reborn in a new way with each new generation, from the famous line “Live fast, die young…

Black, white & bland: Lana Del Rey could be anyone for H&M

What do you associate with Lana Del Rey? Her lyrics tend to center on bad girls, whiskey on tongues and diamonds om wrists, red dresses and blue jeans. But H&M’s latest campaign to feature the starlet offers up none of that. Del Rey’s trademark hair and makeup are in check, but everything else – aside from a few hair accessorises – is a colourless, featureless…

So girly it’s sinister: like the stuff of Lana Del Rey’s dreams

The rainbows, the garlands of flowers, the scatterings of 1960s influences and the overwhelming girlishness of it all. On seeing Lady Petrova’s new collection for the first time you think you must have slipped into the world Lana Del Rey inhabits in her dreams. And no sooner did the bouffant hair and lilac organza put Video Games on repeat in my head was I told…

Lana Del Rey’s nude GQ cover

British GQ gave Lana Del Rey their high honor of ‘Woman of the Year’ for 2012. As for their reasoning, well they said it best: “Having provoked equal amounts of debate and outrage throughout an incredible year, she fufills one of the key requirements for any good pop star: she gets talked about.” The title is celebrated in true GQ fashion: with a cover and…

With so many copies and fakes being produced, how do brands prove their points of differentiation? One way is to raise awareness of their levels of craftsmanship.
