Poom – Rollercoaster

MUSIC, TREND

Young director Côme de Bouchony pays tribute to French 60s magazine “Salut Les Copains” and replaces the vintage youngsters faces with Poom‘s.
Thanks to the sense of humour of the band, the quality of the technique, and the resulted 60s aesthetic, it really works with this nice Rollercoaster song.

Rihanna 0 – Viktor & Rolf 0

BEAUTY, FASHION, MUSIC, PEOPLE, TREND

Viktor & Rolf Ready to Wear Spring 2010 fashion show was really awesome. The work on structure is simply amazing.
But what happened on that poor Rihanna at Clive Davis’ Grammys Party, this weekend ?
The dress lost some of its features, especially the structure on the hip, and the waist highlighted by the pointed bustier. As Rihanna is not so thin as the model, and with a brighter skin, the result is truly disappointing, leaving us with a bloated unfierce Riri. Kuddos for the hair though, combining two hot trends : gradient hair, and rockin’ bump.

Hot now : Ballerina !

BEAUTY, FASHION, PEOPLE, TREND

Carrie – SJP – Bradshaw had understood it long before, Marc Jacobs reminded us last fashion week, the ballerina bun is the new accessory to dope an outfit.
Wear it very high, topknot, and messy. Like “I’m so hot I can’t help it, look I’m just out of my bed”. It can be on the side, which adds to the 1 minute hairdo style.

New Mango campaign feat. Scarlett Johansson

FASHION, PEOPLE, TREND

Denim look + high waist belt = OK
Kaki touch = OK
But God, the sleeveless trench… Come on Mango, couldn’t you do better ?
The cold neon atmosphere of the campaign is not really up to date either, and doesn’t fit with what you would expect for a spring-summer communication.
See below the pics to judge by yourself.

Pourquoi aller voir Mustang ce soir au Scopitone ?

Parce que le Scopitone a pris ses quartiers là où le Paris Paris s’était éteint. Après un extreme makeover qui lui a dopé le son, le club peut à nouveau recevoir les perles dénichées sur le net comme les artistes les plus reconnus – tels les Kooks en décembre dernier – qui s’offrent là un moment intense d’intimité au plus près de leur public d’adorables bébés rockeurs. Outre un viol collectif de Luke Pritchard, on a pu assister à la prestation d’Appaloosa, entre concert raté et géniale performance. On aime. On aime aussi la possibilité de trinquer autour d’un plateau de fromages et cochonnailles. La convivialité avant tout, maître mot du Scopitone, dont la direction artistique a été confiée à Joachim Roncin et où on apprécie particulièrement les soirées de nos copines des Kiss The Girl.

Parce que Mustang, c’est un mec de 19 ans qui arrive à vous faire écouter des paroles en français sans que l’on s’étouffe, de rire ou de stupeur. 19 ans et un recul exceptionnel sur ses semblables. Leur musique vous plonge dans les années 50, un oeil sur les ricains, direction le drive-in, Elvis plein les oreilles. C’est rétro, c’est nouveau. La fraîcheur de leur jeune âge, Clermont-Ferrand, on est loin des hypeux mondains parisiens.

Parce que Mustang, c’est le groupe que vont s’arracher les magazines de mode. On ne fait que vous parler de ça, sortez les bananes, les mecs, c’est maintenant que ça se passe. Le pompadour gominé n’en finit plus de s’exposer en couv (on en reparle très vite sur Chat Cheri). De Zach Efron à Joseph Gordon-Lewitt, ça relooke au pied levé le type le plus transparent, la fashion credibility est dans la poche. Le look rockabilly n’est pas en reste, et on adore la singularité de chaque membre du groupe, qui garde son identité sans sombrer dans la mauvaise (bonne ?) copie des Forbans.

Et si vous ratez Mustang ce soir, achetez leur album A71, écoutez les sur Myspace, ou allez les voir en première partie de Revolver jeudi à la Cigale.

Hot Now : Fedoramania

The felt hat brings a classic chic touch to the silhouette, and is more than helpful on a rainy day to keep it warm and dry. Hurry up, the sunny days will be soon back…
