The Fashionista Spy

Director Aviv Kosloff presents a visually expressive dark short, shot in Berlin: “Berlin was for decades the epicenter of the cold war. CIA, KGB and every other spy agency in the world roamed its streets. The real spies inspired the fictional ones, and Berlin was central to the plot of many classic spy films. We juxtpositioned contemporary Berlin designers against the backdrop of the city’s architecture… so this fashion film is our homage for the spies, spy films, the city and the fashion it inspires.” (Aviv Kosloff) Read the rest of this entry »

Tory Burch Summer 2014 – Summer Calling.

Summer 2014 celebrates a verdant summer garden, with a shot of late Sixties easy glamour. Botanical prints, graphic latticework and a fresh green-and-white palette. Dips in the pool and dappled sun rays. Palm fronds waving in the warm breeze. Bare legs and shorter hemlines. Filmed by Robert Nethery, with Julia Holter’s jazzy In the Green Wild as soundtrack, models Bette Franke, Lindsey Wixson and Oli Lacey have one message for us: summer’s calling.

H&M Life: Lykke Li – Gunshot

Lykke Li filmed an acoustic version of her track Gunshot off her new album I Never Learn (released on May 5th) exclusively for H&M Life. The Swedish Star is able to combine chart success with dark ambiguity and presents a sepcial preview:  “I love acoustic music. To touch someone with just a guitar, a piano or a voice is really hard. It’s also the purest and most divine kind of music. I’ve tried to record this album live as much as possible, but it’s hard to get everything right in one take. Sometimes the drums are perfect but my vocals don’t gel. Sometimes my singing is great but there’s a problem with a drum.”
