Photographer Sarah Louise Johnson and stylist Kelvin Barron delve into shadows and shibari rope work.
Celebrated for its superlative denim, and as the originator of the skinny jean style in skate, KR3W enjoys a cult following among artists and musicians while remaining firmly committed to its skateboarding roots. For AW14, they’ve gone DARK AMERICANA. A palate of black, dark wash, shadow plaid and camo mix with iconic graphics featuring the grim reaper and go for a slightly sinister feel.
The moment I heard ‘God’s Whisper’ I was hooked. I told everyone I knew about this skinny Atlanta kid because, goddamn, he had something. That not quite definable thing even though it oozed through his melodies. He returns, to much internet fanfare, with ‘Cigarette Song’, which premiered across tumblr. On August 25th he releases “Indigo Child” (http://indigochildproject.com) and from there just watch his ascent. He be going places.
Skincare is a vast field and it’s easy to stick to one product or go to the other end of the spectrum and spend crazily trying everything new on the market. Beauty editor Salina Thind is here to take the hassle out of looking at the latest releases and narrows down her faves.
Spongebob and friends go CGI 3D! Partially created in the flat old school style Spongebob was born into the crew leave their underwater home – to protect it from Antonio Banderas as a dastardly pirate – and join the dry realm of humans. It remains to be seen how they actually manage to breathe but we’re splitting hairs. The film is directed by a long standing Spongebob writer and producer Paul Tibbitt so it’s in capable hands and the voice talent from the TV series return to reprise their roles. Watch the trailer below the cut and chuckle along to Patrick’s ice-cream fetish and wonder how much longer comedic bullet time will continue to pervade films. It’s been 15 years… let it go!

Ahead of the release of their third album ‘The Worry’ (15 September 2014 on Future Classic) the Sydney/London three-piece SEEKAE get the re-work treatment courtesy of Flume for their single ‘Test & Recognise’. And, of course, it’s bloody good.
Sat in Uzoechi Osisioma Emenike’s small, slightly over-warm studio in Shoreditch, and beneath the watchful gaze of an old animal skull the last owner left on the wall, the evidence of his burgeoning careeer is on the walls in a series of framed metallic CD’s. They mark his sales, his number 1′s with A.M.E and Duke Dumont, and Becky Hill, his impressive track record as a writer and producer, which is made even more enviable by the fact that MNEK, as you’ll know him, is still a teenager.
You know that feeling – you see an advert or simply a shiny, pretty new package on the shelf and think ‘I want that’ but who knows if it’s really going to work. And are you wasting those hard earn bucks on yet another mascara that promises lush lashes but delivers gooey clumps? Our beauty editor Salina Thind tells you which new products are worth taking home.
If like me you haven’t wondered what Rilo Kiley’s vocalist Jenny Lewis has been doing in her spare time this might come as a surprise but clearly she’s been working her little black book until the thing had an aneurysm, squeezed out the last of its famous people juice and died. But its legacy remains of rounding up Kristen Stewart, Anne Hathaway and Brie Larson to glue man fuzz on their faces and walk around like they’ve got piles in the name of art. Or music. Or “my video needs some serious YouTube hits and this is a surefire way of getting it.”
Lykke Li returns with this disturbing video to accompany the song she says she wrote after meditation. ‘Gunshot’ is “the moment in a relationship where you’ve fucked up and some things you can never take back. I think that a lot of people can relate to that moment where it’s just gone forever.”
