Fashion Week has started and I am already late for my first show. This is not ok! But I had a fabulous night at the Fashion Week Opening party by Dandy Diary. It was just amazing. All these nice people dancing their little peachy asses off with me. I just had to leave early because of the fashion shows in the morning. I felt a little bit like Cinderella. Now I have to hurry. Fashion Week is not waiting for me (I tried to call them to delay the show for some minutes, but they just hung up). If you want to know how to not loose your head over Fashion Week look at the funny videos from Simone Rovellini I just found after the jump.
Berlin-based experimental electronic artist Janine Rostron, aka Planningtorock has become one of the city’s most popular underground acts of the gay/lesbian scene and beyond. Only recently she released a video for her song MIsxgyny Drxp Dead, the title track of her new EP, which again is set to be released on March 8th via Human Level Recordings. Watch it below.
Hot couples chasing each other in the streets of Berlin, Paris, New York and London. Flirtatious looks on the beach of Cancun. And than there is the mysterious tattoo that they all seem to share. What’s that all about? All part of a puzzle? Enjoy spotting some of the Berlin locations in the video after the jump.
While the new Berlin-themed song and music video by David Bowie caused more mixed emotions rather than excitement, this new Youtube clip by visual artist Diego Agullo and WayToRussia founder Dmitry Paranyushkin perfectly captures the spirit of Berlin in a variety of aspects. To our personal amusement the video does take a long detour into Berlin’s cutlural nightlife and party scene, which of course is only one of Berlin’s many attractions. It’s funny how the repetative “Berlin” in the video at some point starts to sound like a frog, haha… Enjoy an ode to Berlin after the jump.
Miss Lana Del Rey has a new video, a very simple one though. What is the spell behind Lana? She is so hated and yet so wanted. She seems more vulnerable, now as her lips are less voluminous. Like a sad mare in the fog she appears in her new video which you can see after the jump:
In their latest episode of the web-tv show Recreate Berlin the guys from Vice have finally arrived in my favorite dictrict of Berlin: Mitte. This time the task of the Galaxy Note Lab was to repaint Mitte. I really enjoyed how workshop leader Clé gives some insights about the development of district that are beyond the typical touristic and commercial hotspots while the participants get creative with the photos they have captured at places such as the Circle Culture Gallery at Gipsstraße. Have a look at the video after the jump.
In anticipation of my trip to Paris and Asnières to the historical studio and home of Louis Vuitton I would like to post the latest fashion film of the traditional brand. For their new design collaboration with Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama they shot a pair of 1-minute fashion films that are almost exactly the same, except for 5 differences. Can you spot the difference? Play the game, after the jump.
The fashion film Lost Bay by label Ashirov Martic shot by Esteban Studio perfectly fits the relaxed and summery mood of the past days. When you look at the models, the clothes and the general style of the video you would probably associate this label with cities like New York, but actually they are from Düsseldorf, Germany. Enjoy the fun video after the jump.
The last time we saw her live her concert was unfortunately cut short and we were left craving for more. Luckily not only is Santigold playing a full concert live tonight at Astra, the concert is also being streamed live on tapelive starting at 21h. Right now you can also get a sneak of the rehearsals on the stream. Enjoy her current music video to Disparate Youth after the jump.
After Kele’s little excursion into the land of solo artists he now got back together with his band Bloc Party to make another album. The new single Octopus just came out and it sounds just like the old Bloc Party. I personally preferred Kele’s more electro-driven solo songs, that’s why I really like the RAC Remix more then the normal video version. You can download the Octopus RAC Remix over at Melt! legally and for free for a limited time. And for the video just head over the jump.
