With a savvy that has helped them avoid the fast-changing trends in music (as well as almost complete avoidance of commercially successful EDM artists of the moment), RBMA has more than any other outlets opened their arms to education and lectures via their Academy labs and classrooms, properly stationed annually in major cities across the globe

F in des années 1960 : le design automobile vit sa révolution avec l’apparition de concepts-cars radicaux signés par les plus grands designers italiens. Plus bas que jamais, affublés de carrosseries en pointe qui s’affranchissent de la courbe pour n’offrir que surfaces planes, ligne droites et angles vifs définissent le style Wedge qui va être la référence pour les deux décennies à venir. Les studios Bertone, Ital Design et Pininfarina signeront les chefs d’œuvres de cette nouvelle ligne, pourtant, à peine quelques mois après la présentation de l’Alfa Romeo Carrabo, l’une des proposition de style la plus avant-gardiste de l’époque ne viendra pas de Turin mais de l’autre bout du monde : le constructeur australien Holden dévoile son Hurricane au salon de Melbourne 1969.

Levi’s Vintage Clothing returns for Spring Summer 2014 with a collection centred around the 1939 World’s Fair, also known as the ‘Golden Gate International Exposition.’ In what sounds like an incredible event, a man-made ‘Treasure Island’ was built in the middle of San Francisco bay to house the oddball annual gathering, a global celebration of trade, industry, art, culture and in this specific case the city’s two new bridges; San Francisco – Oakland Bay Bridge and the Golden Gate Bridge. Levi’s , an established American brand flourishing in their SF hometown and beyond, made their presence known with a fantastical all-electric mechanical rodeo featuring 31 wooden puppets modelled on real-life rodeo stars and kitted out in mini Levi’s outfits. To celebrate the 75th anniversary of what the label describes as a “far-out moment,” the costumes worn by these carved creations have been recreated in a collection that celebrates the lighter side of Levi’s heritage

So, clumsy, what’re you supposed to do?
