1034701.jpg
Just as the pink pastel unicorn in ‘Charlie The Unicorn’ described Candy Mountain, Pip & Pop’s sugary landscapes are full “of sweets and joy and joyness”
Tanya Schultz -aka ‘Pip & Pop’- collaborated with fantasmical fashion design duo ‘Romance Was Born’ on their Spring/Summer 2013 collection entitled ‘Mushroom Magic’ showcased at Australian Fashion Week, not only constructing a pastel sugar landscape on the runway, but RWB incorperated digital print versions of ‘Pip & Pop’s creations into the final garments that hiked through Tanya’s sweetie gorging canyon.
Tanya spoke to DAZED following the show, about her childhood influences, her varied mediums and the sugar rush of working on the AFW presentation:

“I want to transport the audience to another place or time.”

You can see slides of her creations and the show after the jump and read the full interview HERE.

!! OMG, How much wood would a woodchuck chuck? Who cares because…ICE-CREAM! !!


How much ice-cream would a woodchuck munch
If a woodchuck could munch tastey creamy treats?
He would eat, he would, as much as he could,
And lick as much as a woodchuck would
If a woodchuck could gobble up icecream.
This woodchuck would not chuck wood, he would -however- chuck vanilla flavoured ice-cream cones though, his rotary waffle nibbling technique is marvellous, he doesn’t even squidge a dollop on the floor or anything like that, just neat and tidy and methodically munch-nibbles his cone-shaped dairy treatsicle.

!! OMG, where the wild things flare: Basement Jaxx’ ‘Back 2 The Wild’ !!


If I was a jungle manimal in Basement Jaxx’s new video ‘Back 2 The Wild’, I think I would be an electronic sloth because it took me a good week or so to get down from my DANGLEBERRY TREE to get round to posting this.
From the fellas who brought you ‘Where’s your head at?’, ‘Romeo’ and ‘Red Alert’, all around about the millennium bug era, they are definitely not my favourite dance producers, but they are so much fun live and their videos are always fun…floral facial, hair flares and BATIK BURKAS?!!

!! OMG, concrete [within] jungle: Tilda Swinton in ‘Stranger than Paradise’ !!

Screen Shot 2013-04-19 at 9.42.07 AM.png
Edward James was an English eccentric, poet, and surrealist collector who on inheriting a fortune from his railroad and mining mogul father fled England to grow orchids in the Sierra Madre Oriental mountains of the Mexican Jungle in the 50s. In the early 60s a freak snowstorm [described by the locals as “white ashes”] destroyed his orchadian nursery.
Following this, James dedicated the following 20 years to creating a series of concrete sculptures inspired by the surrealist artists work that he had previously collected, set within his rainforest estate of Las Pozas.

“I have seen such beauty as one man has seldom seen.”_James Edwards

These sculptures included totem poles, hidden rooms, towers, and staircases to nowhere which were often deliberately left unfinished like ruins amongst the trees
After James’s death, in 1984, the ruinous effect took hold, as lack of funding meant cultivated plants died, and the animals in the menagerie had to be released as the sculptures soon became engulfed by the surrounding rainforest.
In 2007, the estate was acquired by a charitable foundation who set to restoring Edward’s sculptures.
Photographer Tim Walker and Tilda Swinton -herself no stranger to surrealism [see 1992’s ‘Orlando’ or any of the work between Swinton and her late friend Derek Jarman]- set out to explore James’ restored jungle estate and those surrealist muses which inspired it’s creation, in [my emaciated opinion] the most incredible editorial I myself can recall seeing in W Magazine, for their May 2013 Issue:

“I hadn’t realized…how incredibly ambitious it had been of James to create another world somewhere so remote…where nature can be so destructive. It’s the power of the dreamer.”_Photographer, Tim Walker

Follow the jump to explore the remainder of their fantastical collaborative mountainous concrete [within] jungle editorial.
