!! OMG, SHE’S A MEGA BEACH: Beach House’s ‘Forever Still’ !!

Filmed over three nights “from sunset to sunrise”, Beach House’s Forever Still was shot in and around Tornillo, Texas, where they recorded their 2012 album Bloom. They had this to say about their Pitchfork project:

“We…felt a need to distance ourselves from the ‘content’ culture of the internet that rewards quantity over quality and shock over nuance.
Forever Still is directly inspired by Pink Floyd’s Live at Pompeii. We felt the songs would resonate in a more majestic and spiritual landscape.”

Victoria Legrand’s ANDROGYNOISE voice sounds amazing, as usual, and she looks great in all her capes and schnoods and whatnot. I call her hair ‘desert mists’ as it looks blooming perfect, whilst still being kind of “oh this thing on my head, I just woke up like this.”
Yah right Vicky, that beach is lying! I know she’s using L’Oréal DESERT MIST GLAZE in HAIR HER on the regular!

!! OMG, “I also look really fierce in a dress”: Casey Legler; [fe]male model !!

Like Andrej Pejić, but the other way around; New York-based, French-born swimmer and “art-maker” Casey Legler is the first female signed to Ford Models’ male division. She spoke to Time last year about her relationship to gender-types. She spoke not of gender definition, but instead of her experience and wishes of gender freedom:

“We have very specific ways in which we define ourselves as men or women and I think sometimes they can be a bit limiting…What I wish is that we all get to be exactly who we are…With [such] fluidity…[there is] this notion of freedom…that is saying ‘look, there is this other way'”

!! OMG, EARport SECuuurty: LE1F’s Fly Zone Mixtape !!

If you haven’t done it yet, go on and download LE1F’s Fly Zone Mixtape HERE. I wish this was the muzak they played whilst you were waiting on the runway for the pilot to de-ice and push-back.
My favourite track to push-back to is his UK-Garage-esque-slow-jam ‘Autopilot’ with SAFE [who I think is the one with the long-black-bob-do doing the safety announcements on your flight today]:

“On-flight menus ? Ear-buds ? Drinxx and snaxx ?!”

!! OMG, strike a pose: Ralph Pucci in ‘Apotheosis’ !!

“Apotheosis (from Greek ἀποθέωσις from ἀποθεοῦν, apotheoun “to deify”; in Latin deificatio “making divine”; also called divinization and deification) is the glorification of a subject to divine level.”
In this beautifully shot snip-tit, mannequin creator Ralph Pucci attempts to dispel peoples Hitchcockian fears of the mannequin, speaking instead of the unachievable ‘perfection’ that the mannequin form represents:

“Mannequins are definitely the workhorses of the [fashion] industry…As perfect as famous supermodels are, mannequins are even better”

Also, mannequin supermodels will not throw their cellphone at you!
Pucci does a really good job of speaking of his models in a sort of divine architectural aspiration sort of a way..until he says; “as time has gone on they have become much more active”
OK, now we’re back to creepy Dr Who Mannequin Madness gone amok, plastic department store-props-with-guns world take-over scenario again!

!! OMG, how handy: finger trap handbags !!

These finger trap handbags by L.A.-based designer James Piatt are based on Chinese finger trap toys. I’d love to wear one of these to the airport, maybe a suitcase version:

“erm excuse me sir how many bags will you be checking today?
Oh these, oh they’re not bags, these are my gloves, silly. No bags, I’ll just walk right through, OK?”

Maybe a GARBAGE-BAG VERSION could work too: Finally taking out the trash doesn’t have to be dreadfully boring and un-chic!
