MUSIC: JOHNNY FLYNN

Last week I went to see Johnny Flynn in concert at Strand.


As I stepped in the room I told my friend "you know what's my worst concert nightmare? Spending the whole gig stuck behind someone's phone." I know I'm old school but when I go to a concert, I don't come to 1. Hear YOU sing. 2. Watch the entire concert through your iPhone screen.
Well someone must have heard me, because I ended up behind the tallest man on earth, 20 years older than the rest of the crowd, with the most orange bushy hair i'd ever seen. Total Garfunkel from behind, and, as it turned out, pretty Steve Buscemi looking from front. We called him Steve Busceunkel all night. But at least, I thought, a man like him doesn't spend the whole concert behind his iPhone! Well he didn't. Just before the concert even begun, he pulled out the oldest "digital" camera, the kind you get for free when you order clothes in a catalogue, and I kid you not, took like 1376 photos through the whole show, wait for it, tilting the camera, to get the best diagonal frames. It was one of these moments in life when you really really want to laugh, but you also really really want to cry..

Anyways, apart from Steve, the concert was magical. If you don't know Johnny Flynn I highly recommend that you see him live. But prepare yourself, because you WILL fall in love. He's handsome in a way you can't ever be ready for, he has an unexpectedly deep voice that seems to tell you stories from another time, and most of all, he's the most humble person you'll meet.

He's touring over Europe just now, don't miss him! Concerts Dates Here






PS. He got his scars from a dog bite. Yes, he IS perfect.

Feels Familiar? {Part 6}

“Start copying what you love. Copy copy copy copy. At the end of the copy you will find your self.” - Yohji Yamamoto

Llew Mejia says: "Inspired by one of my favorite textile designers, Josef Frank, a master of color and composition. Of course I don’t even come close but one can try and learn from a master!"
Not that he's not trying to come close! very close..

This has to be an homage since George Hoyningen-Huene was chief of photography at FrenchVogue at some point, but maybe not?



Mia Wasikowska in Restless, 2011

Mia Farrow in Rosemary's Baby, 1968



Chinese Lanterns, John Singer Sargent, 1886

Japanese LanternsLuther Emerson Van Gorder - 1895 



Two young girls lighting lanterns in a gardenMichael Cardacino, inspired by a John Singer Sargent

PS: I am not trying to promote fur here, I don't (and don't want to) own a fur coat/scarf or any other cat-made fur hood parka thing you see everywhere.. I am just loving the primal vibe, and believe that if you want to wear fur, you should be able to kill the animal yourself.
