Best editorial so far 
They almost stood up from my homepage Thursday, these stylish blue men. How great are the untamable moustaches, beards and massive eyebrows?

Must see exhibition

Never heard of her before, but she produces a great piece of music. How about the voice sampling and looping, whereas she creates her own song using only her strong voice? Fine piece of ear-candy.

An anecdote to remember
I believe this piece of poetry comes from a recent press day. Being a pre-fashion student starting the next academic year, the time has come to move out.

Boots, or shoes in general, will once create my financial shutdown. These leather black ones are from Bik Bok, a Scandinavian brand with a twist. The metallic tips are completing the urban Western look, and I find the model extremely interesting. I might suck for these...
