Bristol Studio Comes Into Its Own

LOS ANGELES — “It looks very basic,” Luke Tadashi said slowly, holding up a sample of a Bristol Studio black crewneck sweatshirt.
It does, but before he can get what sounds to be a qualifier in, the El Monte factory owner whose facility — where one might also see samples laying around from Vetements, Carbon38 or Soul Cycle — he’s standing beside cuts in. “It’s not simple. He’s lying,” she said playfully. She would know. Nearly everything Tadashi’s thrown at this factory has been far from typical, from the 25-oz. fabric so thick a hammer has to be used just to set the zipper, to the upward of 13 panel pieces for sweats (it’s normally seven, or four on cheaper versions).
“Nothing that we do is standard, Nothing we’re doing is based on existing fits. It has to be something from scratch,” Tadashi later said, while pulling a reversible hoodie over his head to model its fit from the factory floor. About a year-and-a-half ago, the brand stopped hiring fit models given Tadashi’s exacting standards for his label’s fits and proportions.
Today, Bristol Studio may perhaps be coming into its own. Aside from putting a halt on fit models, roughly a year ago

EXCLUSIVE: The Whitney Museum to Honor Michael Bloomberg at Gala and Studio Party

The Whitney Museum of American Art will honor Michael Bloomberg during its annual Gala and Studio Party on April 9.
The centrist politician, who two weeks ago revealed he would not be running for president in 2020, is “a great friend to the Whitney,” according to the museum’s Alice Pratt Brown director Adam D. Weinberg. Bloomberg’s honor stems from his philanthropic work and support for artists and cultural organizations; under his administration spanning 11 years, the founder of Bloomberg LP backed 500 public art projects.
There’s more cause for celebration, though: the gala, which this year will be sponsored by Michael Kors and Audi, marks the four-year anniversary of the museum’s move downtown to the Meatpacking District. Plus folks will be able to celebrate — or perhaps more accurately, mourn — the closing of the oft-Instagrammed exhibit “Andy Warhol — From A to B and Back Again.”
For Kors’ part, he said he’s looking forward to checking out the next thing the museum has to offer.
“I love the building and the fact that there’s always something new and provocative to see,” he said. “Having the Whitney in my backyard is a dream.”

Ones to Watch: Studio ALCH, C2H4 and Feng Chen Wang on the Power of Streetwear and Brand Collaborations

LONDON — Designers from around the world have been coming in waves to London Fashion Week Men’s and among the newest names on the calendar are Studio ALCH, C2H4 and Feng Chen Wang. But while they may be new to the London runways, they’ve already garnered international attention, having worked with brands such as Nike, Levi’s, Kappa and Converse.
The Australian designer Alexandra Hackett of Studio ALCH, who creates new garments from repurposed Nike pieces, said she’s come to London to be better integrated into the international market. “Australia is quite geographically removed, which is reflected in its industry. London is more of an internationally recognized city and you can create product that, perhaps, has more markets in different countries across the world,” she said.
Hackett caught Nike’s attention early on and the famous swoosh has become her brand’s trademark. The sportswear giant has also sponsored some of her designs. Hackett has snared celebrity fans such as Kendrick Lamar, who has worn Studio ALCH’s boiler suit made from reconstructed Nike bags, and British Grime rappers Stormzy and Skepta.
“I was always interested in Nike from a branding perspective and thought it would be a really interesting brand to work with in terms of their

Samantha Cameron Studio Files First Accounts, Sticks to Plan

LONDON — Samantha Cameron Studio Limited, owner of the Cefinn contemporary clothing brand, has filed its first financial statements with Companies House in the U.K. The company, which launched in 2016, also confirmed it is on track with its business plan.
Cefinn, an acronym of Samantha Cameron’s children’s names plus an extra C, launched in 2016 and began trading last year. It sells via its own website and at outlets including Selfridges, Net-a-porter, Matchesfashion.com, The Modist and Fenwick of Bond Street.
The accounts, published early Thursday on Companies House, the official register of U.K. businesses, are unaudited and abbreviated: British companies are required to file a full, audited profit and loss statement only when turnover exceeds 10.2 million pounds.
For the financial period ended Oct. 31, 2017 the business had assets of 271,828 pounds and registered 561,795 pounds in losses, which is not unusual for a clothing start-up such as Cefinn. Cameron is the sole director of the company, which had 10 employees at the time of the filing.
Cefinn had been trading for nine months when the accounts were filed at the end of fiscal 2017. Although the company does not disclose turnover, it said sales have doubled in the past three months of

Disney Closes Planes Studio Disneytoon

Disneytoon Studios, the animation team behind the Planes and Fairies franchises, has been shut down.

IndieWire reports Disney closed the Glendale, California-based animation house — the company’s third team alongside Walt Disney Animation Studios and Pixar. Disneytoon apparently employed around 75 people, and it’s unknown whether they will be allocated to the other two companies.

“After much consideration, we have made the decision to end production activity and close Disneytoon Studios,” a Disney spokesperson told IndieWire.

The closure means an untitled movie from Disneytoon, scheduled for March 2019, is no longer happening. Disneytoon also created a plethora of direct-to-video releases, including Mulan 2, Tarzan 2 and Bambi 2.

We Tried It: Working Out in an N.Y.C. Studio That’s So Cold, Gloves and Hats Are Encouraged

 

What It Is: The Brrrn

Who Tried It: Grace Gavilanes, PEOPLE.com associate editor

Level of Difficulty: 7/10 The workout moves themselves weren’t super difficult, but something tells me the class’ colder temps definitely had something to do with my ability to withstand the fatigue for so long.

I didn’t know what to expect when I got off the train and began walking toward N.Y.C.’s new Brrrn studio. I had received an invite the day before to try out one of their three class offerings: Yoga-inspired Strength and Mobility Series, Core and Cardio Slide Board Series, and Battle Rope Infused Hit Series. As someone who’s eager to get back into her regular workout schedule, I opted for the third, a 45-minute class designed to improve strength and conditioning with dumbbell circuit training and battle rope exercises. I was sure it would help jumpstart my fitness journey.

The only catch? Each workout takes place in a studio with below-average temps, depending on the level of activity the class requires. In fact, wearing beanies and gloves (which can be purchased at Brrrn) during class is encouraged. The class I was taking was set at 45°F, the coldest of the three. The others are set at 60°F and 55°F, respectively.

Naturally, I had a few questions beforehand: What do I wear? Will I catch a cold? Will this make me as uncomfortable as hot yoga had that one time?

I started doubting myself during my walk over. I questioned the thickness of my leggings, wondered if I should have opted for a cotton shirt (per the invite email’s recommendation) rather than the lycra one I was wearing, and asked myself if I was even ready to put my body through such an intense class when the most physical activity I had done over the past month was lightly sprinting to a table in our office, where cake was being served.

But it was too late. I had already made it to 20th street, and was just around the corner from the studio. I walked up the few stairs and made it inside, which was at a nice temperature. I was greeted by one of Brrrn’s cofounders, Johnny Adamic, who asked me if I was looking forward to the class. “I’m really nervous!” I said within seconds of being inside. He was understanding but also assured me that I would be “just fine.”

As I walked in to the class, I was a little taken aback. It wasn’t that cold. But to be fair, I do think my reaction went hand-in-hand with my initial freakout. I mentally prepared myself for freezing temps and was met with a super brisk fall day. I felt good as I switched between two stations: battle ropes and free weights.

With the benefits of burning more calories and delaying fatigue (and going even harder for the duration of your workout sesh!), exercising in a 45°F fitness studio has been a long time coming. “Cold has been the backdrop of the human experience for millennia,” Adamic has said. “But we’ve engineered cold out of our lives. Now we live in these climate-controlled environments of 72°F from the time we wake up until we go to bed, but routine exposure to cooler temperatures is actually good for us. We are reuniting the cold back with exercise — where it belongs.”

I wasn’t shivering in class. I felt the hairs on my arms slightly raise during short rest periods but since we were constantly moving, I was comfortable and motivated to complete the moves. I felt energized. I probably could have kept going an extra 15 minutes.

The studio also provides “dessert” in the form of a communal infrared sauna. It’s the same price and length of time as a workout class, but the only difference is you’re experiencing warmth. Its not suffocating, but a welcoming dry heat. “It’s a nice way to chill and make friends,” Adamic told me of the eight-seater sauna.

The Verdict: As someone who’s pretty paranoid about getting sick, I was initially nervous about doing countless jump squats and renegade rows in a cold room, voluntarily. Spoiler alert: It’s been three days and I’m feeling perfectly healthy. Just really sore all over, which is totally expected after all those bicep curls and lunges. While I felt cool throughout the class, I was still sweating. Mission accomplished.

H&M Studio Channels Urban Japanese Minimalism

ZEN FASTER: Japan’s minimalist design and quiet grace – hardly what one expects from fast fashion. But that was the setting, and storyline, for H&M Studio’s see-now-buy-now spring 2018 collection, presented at Paris’ Musée des Arts Décoratifs on Wednesday night.
The real runway was the social media highway, though, with some 30 high-impact influencers invited to the show including Leaf Greener, Sira Kante and Olivia Lopez.
The museum’s nave had been transformed into a Japanese restaurant with guests sat at low zashiki tables set on tatami flooring, which also served as the runway.
But it wasn’t entirely zen. Guests scrambled to find the right size of tabi socks; a woman fell down one of the table pits and had to be yanked out.
Taking in the scene, with giant paper lanterns glowing overhead, Alek Wek was living the moment. “I can feel my feet touching the floor, the room is so beautiful. I can’t wait to sit down, because I love practicing yoga,” she said.
The guests eventually settled in to dine on sushi and sake. Actress Naomie Harris held court at a central table. “I’m feeling amazingly zen, I couldn’t be any more zen if I tried,” quipped the actress who is about to

The 12-episode Hulu original will air over the course of a year, with a new episode premiering each month. While each installment in the currently untitled series will have a self-contained story, “some narrative device or structural device is expected to connect them,” according to Variety.

“At the heart of the deal is an extremely passionate audience and an extremely activateable audience in terms of horror,” said Hulu Chief Content Officer Joel Stillerman. “It’s not even the larger bucket of ‘genre.’ I would say this falls squarely into the horror bucket.”

The Brooklyn Print Studio Fostering a New Generation of Indie T-Shirt Brands

Alex Dondero is dazed and bewildered. The founder of Lqqk Studio — better accustomed to Brooklyn chill — has spent the past 12 hours displaced in Midtown, Manhattan. His print shop has temporarily taken up residence at a high-profile fashion brand based in the Garment District prepping and printing runway samples in the weeks leading up to New York Fashion Week. He phones in at 11 p.m. on the drive home to Bedford-Stuyvesant, remarking, somewhat trancelike, between tollbooths.
This Midtown studio residency — for which Dondero has signed a nondisclosure — is just the latest notch in Lqqk’s ascent. A commercial printing studio, Lqqk (pronounced: “Look”) also produces its own label known for handprinted T-shirts, hats, knapsacks and patterned outerwear that typically sell out within 48 hours of release.
The past year has seen Lqqk lend its distinctly minimal, off-kilter aesthetic to a suite of new partners. The studio has collaborated with Japanese men’s wear brand N. Hoolywood, opened new wholesale channels and devised a sneaker and apparel collaboration with Vans’ tier-one label, Vault, due this spring.
Commercial jobs are but a spoke in Dondero’s wheel. As such, Dondero has used the studio to spin a creative web and establish a Lqqk network

Carine Roitfeld, CR Studio Curate Latest Veuve Clicquot Widow Series

WIDOW DRESSING: Carine Roitfeld and her content team at CR Studio will curate the third Veuve Clicquot Widow Series in London in October. Roitfeld follows Nick Knight, who worked on the inaugural series, and FKA Twigs who oversaw last year’s creative and cultural event.
The series honors the house’s founder Madame Clicquot, who was widowed in October 1805. She took on her late husband’s Champagne business and pioneered several industry innovations. Each year, the series taps a creative type who has “an unfulfilled desire or passion project” they want to bring to life.
“I’m a storyteller, that’s my job as an editor and stylist. This opportunity is completely different, and now my team at CR Studio and I have the opportunity to tell a story with the viewer actually experiencing the story as we tell it,” Roitfeld said. “It’s not a party, it’s a truly immersive experience, a different way of thinking.”
Jean-Marc Gallot, president of Maison Veuve Clicquot, said the house wanted Roitfeld for her “artistic yet audacious aesthetic” and fashion leadership over the decades. “We welcome another empowering woman into the house of Veuve Clicquot.”
Last year, FKA Twigs let her imagination run wild and curated “Rooms,” an immersive experience featuring 12

A. Sauvage to Launch Sportswear Collection After Moving Studio to L.A.

Adrien Sauvage, who established his men’s wear label A. Sauvage in London in 2010, has become the latest designer to decamp for Los Angeles, opening up a studio in Beverly Hills this summer.
“Basically I came here for Christmas holiday and I never went back,” said Sauvage, who said Robert Downey Jr. was among the first of his clients to encourage the move. Sauvage launched his line of contemporary suiting in Harrods, then opened his own shop on Bond Street, and today his made-to-measure pieces are also available online. He still travels back to London every eight weeks for his made-to-measure clients, but says the California lifestyle has inspired a new idea — a sportswear line due out in January.
“I surveyed the land of T-shirts. I thought two or three years ago the whole sportswear thing was going to go in the bin, but it’s still here. It’s even tweaked my own style a bit. My sportswear line is going to have a casual elegance, the whole seven days a week wardrobe. It’s perfect for getting on or off a plane,” he said. He is still exploring wholesale partners for the line.

This is the first time the Swedish fast-fashion brand has co-designed a range with a retailer. “[The collaboration] was such a natural process, it became another twist to this collection. As a tribute to Colette, we strengthened the blue accents,” said Emily Johansson, concept manager for H&M.
Among the nine pieces created for the concept store is a demure long-sleeved checkered dress layered with a hand-painted graffiti design (going for 170 euros). Another piece features hairy jacquards specially designed and produced for the range.

5 Unexpected Things We Learned On The ‘Harry Potter’ Studio Tour

You can go to London without visiting the Warner Bros. studio, where cast and crew brought J.K. Rowling’s expansive magical world to the screen. But if you’re a Harry Potter” fan, you really shouldn’t.

HuffPost had the pleasure of touring the corners of Hogwarts and beyond that have been carefully set up for fans to lovingly gaze at, obsessively photograph, and even consume ― the Butterbeer is delicious ― in Leavesden, England.

Awash in “Harry Potter” nostalgia, we walked through the Great Hall, where professors McGonagall and Snape stand at attention on either side of Dumbledore. We peered into the surprisingly compact Gryffindor common room and brushed by the magnificent Fat Lady, sans password. We saw Harry’s Hogwarts acceptance letters strung up to cloud the Dursleys’ living room with a flurry of paper whizzing motionless out of the fireplace. We nipped into the Hogwarts Express, where cars representing Harry, Ron and Hermione’s many years of rides are littered with candy wrappers, books and copies of the Quibbler. We admired a wall of newspapers, envelopes, cereal boxes and every other array of printed prop, all blessed with the wizarding world’s unique typography that screams in block letters at one turn and appears calmly serifed at another. We passed the Knight Bus and the infamously well-manicured Privet Drive. We forgot our Put-Outer, so the street remained illuminated. 

In a new section of the studio, we witnessed the Whomping Willow in destructive action and strolled along a trail through a forest full of meticulously handcrafted trees that obscure one special hippogriff and too many arachnids. And that’s not even half of all we saw.

Among the many bits and bobs along the way, we picked up some trivia on the “Harry Potter” film series. Our list doesn’t give away everything to be discovered on a visit, and certainly can’t replicate the whimsical wizarding atmosphere culled from the thoughtful work of prop developers and costumers over 10 years of filming. Nevertheless, we’ve shared a few pieces of knowledge below. 

1. Some of the Hogwarts castle portraits actually depict muggles.

Although the depth and breadth of Rowling’s wizarding world could surely have produced enough famous magical faces to fill the halls of Hogwarts ― the set included nearly 350 enchanted portraits ― producers allowed many of the film’s crew to pose for portraits to fill in the gaps. On view, for the sharp-sighted, are Barry Wilkinson the prop master, David Heyman the producer and Stuart Craig the production designer, among others. All look as if they know just the precise way to inflect “leviosa.”

2. There’s a picture of a young Professor McGonagall hanging in the Gryffindor common room.

Her dark hair is greying, and she displays a very prim expression, gazing slightly down her nose at the painter, but the witch pictured bears only a slight resemblance to Dame Maggie Smith. Or the witch described in the book, with her affinity for emerald green and tartan robes; this McGonagall is in blue, with a gold pendant around her neck. (Yes, you’ll have to make a visit to see her.)

3. Some of the potions ingredients in Snape’s classroom are actually zoo souvenirs. 

Professor Snape is a closet fan of muggle zoos, it seems. Among the more than 500 of bottles stashed along the walls of the dungeon classroom, some with handwritten labels, are plastic animals from the shop at the zoo in London’s Regent’s Park. That’s a significantly cuter way to illustrate pickled animals, like the ones the dungeon is meant to house, than some of the other things in those jars ― namely, baked animal bones from a nearby butcher. 

4. 15,000 glowing prophecy orbs were trashed because director David Yates changed his mind.

Well, not trashed, exactly ― you can see them displayed on the tour. The dusty glass orbs were created to illustrate the Ministry of Magic’s luminescent Hall of Prophecy that contained records of foretold events, including the prophecy made by Professor Trelawney about a child with the power to defeat Voldemort. The props weren’t used in the film, though, because Yates ― who directed “The Order of the Phoenix,” “The Half-Blood Prince” and both “Deathly Hallows” installments ― decided to use CGI to create them. They might’ve been destroyed anyway in the Battle of the Department of Mysteries, but imagine being those prop designers.

5. In certain scenes, Hagrid’s head is fake. 

One of the more eerie behind-the-scenes revelations is seeing the bodiless head of Hagrid ― complete with artful wrinkles, rosy veins and individual eyebrow hairs ― that the prop department made for tall stunt doubles portraying him in action scenes and wide shots. Filmmakers used this and many other tricks to make the lovable half-giant appear so much larger than life: Another had Robbie Coltrane, who is only 6-foot-1, seated at a split-level table, one higher and nearer the camera and one lower and further away, to achieve a forced perspective effect that made the actor appear huge across from his companion. You can try it out for yourself on the tour ― photos encouraged.

Tickets can be found on the “Harry Potter” Warner Bros. Studio Tour website.

From June 1 to 30, HuffPost is celebrating the 20th anniversary of the very first “Harry Potter” book by reminiscing about all things Hogwarts. Accio childhood memories.

Getting into Studio 54 in the 1970s was a nearly impossible endeavor. Marc Benecke, doorman for the disco club, would stand on a stepping stool and select club candidates from the crowd. He compared this process to “mixing a salad.” Nevertheless, “54” lured celebrities, socialites, athletes, and artists from around the globe. Andy Warhol once said, “The key of the success of Studio 54 is that it’s a dictatorship at the door and a democracy on the dance floor.” For the 40th anniversary of the club’s opening, we’re giving you a peek at the lucky few (celebrities, of course) who actually made it inside.

Amarist Studio Aims to Spark Social Awareness With Refugees-Inspired Welcome Jewelry

WELCOME DISCUSSION: In these politically charged times, Amarist Studio will be making a statement with its Welcome Jewelry installation in May at Art New York.
The Barcelona-based creative agency was formed by the artists and designers Arán Lozano and Clara Campo. They will be showing the Welcome Jewelry for Social Good for the first time in the U.S., when the event starts May 3 at Pier 94, and runs through May 11. The earrings, bracelets, necklaces and pins are made of razor wire that has been cut, polished and plated with 24-karat gold and will be showcased in clear plastic packaging. The effect is meant to be like a mass-produced supermarket.
Campo said via e-mail, “With the Welcome installation in Art New York, we want to create an immersive space for the visitor, generating debate on the refugee crisis as well as empowering social responsibility. With the deconstruction of a border wall, followed by the transformation of its fragments into solidarity jewelry, we want to demonstrate how art and design can help change concepts, going beyond the theoretical to become active.”

Studio Studies

Studio Studies


Consider the vast array of things around you, from the building you are in, the lights illuminating the interior, the computational devices mediating your life, the music in the background, even the crockery, furniture and glassware you are in the presence of. Common to all these objects is that their concrete, visual and technological forms were invariably conceived, modelled, finished and tested in sites characterised as studios. Remarkably, the studio remains a peculiar lacuna in our understanding of how cultural artefacts are brought into being and how ‘creativity’ operates as a located practice. Studio Studies is an agenda setting volume that presents a set of empirical case studies that explore and examine the studio as a key setting for aesthetic and material production. As such, Studio Studies responds to three contemporary concerns in social and cultural thought: first, how to account for the situated nature of creative and cultural production; second, the challenge of reimagining creativity as a socio-materially distributed practice rather than the cognitive privilege of the individual; and finally, to unravel the parallels, contrasts and interconnections between studios and other sites of cultural-aesthetic and technoscientific production, notably laboratories. By enquiring into the operations, topologies and displacements that shape and format studios, this volume aims to demarcate a novel and important object of analysis for empirical social and cultural research as well to develop new conceptual repertoires to unpack the multiple ways studio processes shape our everyday lives.

Dell Studio 1745 6 Cell Laptop Battery

Dell Studio 1745 6 Cell Laptop Battery


6 Cell Dell Studio 1745 Laptop Battery Replacement This is a brand new Dell Studio 1745 replacement battery. There are two key components inside your battery pack to look for when buying a new computer battery. The quality of the battery s lithium-ion cells and the quality of the computer chip set in the battery pack. This battery is built with the best components, not the cheapest. This battery contains the very best Li-ion cells on the market from Samsung. An important specification to look for with rechargeable batteries is the mAh (mili amp hour) rating or Whr (Watt Hour). This battery is rated at 5200 mAh or 58 Whr. This is the highest rating available for a 6 cell battery pack. The higher the mAh rating, the longer your battery will run before it needs to be recharged again. There are no compatibility issues if your existing battery is rated at 4400 or 4800 mAh or a lower Whr. Simply put, more is better. And yes, this battery is probably better than your original! The other key component inside the battery pack is the computer chip set that contains the program interface with your laptop s battery meter software and important safety features that monitors when to charge and stop charging your battery. We use Texas Instruments top notch components for this. When choosing a laptop battery, cheaper is not better. Cheaper batteries use inferior Chinese cells that typically wear out in just 3 to 6 months. The main indicators of inferior Chinese cells are the low price of the battery and a lower mAh rating. Inferior batteries also use inferior computer chip sets inside that can lead to compatibility issues with your laptop. Although every brand of laptop battery is hand assembled in China, the key to getting a great battery is knowing what components are inside. Laptop Battery Express is a US based business with knowledgeable support staff to assist you before and after the sale. Yes, we have a phone number and real people answer your call! Free technical support is available if you need additional help in diagnosing power problems with your battery, ac power adapter or battery meter software. All our products carry a full 2 Year warranty and every battery is charged and tested before it ships. We provide a 30 day money back guarantee if you are not completely satisfied. We are so confident in the quality of our batteries, we will pay for any and all shipping expenses if our product fails to perform in the first 30 days you have our battery, even if it is not our fault. (PS- if your laptop will not turn on at all when plugged in, you need a new ac power adapter found at the bottom of this page) Feel free to call for tech support.

We never carry recycled or used batteries. We only use the highest quality cells inside the battery pack so you will have a long service life (300-500 recharge cycles). We do not use cheaper battery cells which can wear out in a little as 3 to 6 months. Our inventory turns rapidly and you will always receive a freshly manufactured battery. Replaces these many Dell laptop battery part numbers:312-0186 312-0196 N853P N855P N856P M905P U150P U164P Y067P How to care for your Dell Studio 1745 battery. You can extend the life of your laptop battery significantly through the proper care and handling of your battery. Any new laptop battery should first be fully charged by leaving it plugged in overnight. Once a computer battery is fully charged it will no longer accept any more power. It is a common practice to leave laptops plugged in after they have been turned off so that the battery has a full charge the next time you use your laptop. It is probably fully charged within 5 hours. A brand new notebook battery is in a weakened condition since it has not been conditioned yet. Condition and break in your new battery by performing 5 partial discharge and recharge cycles the first week you receive your new battery. Run on battery power without the AC adapter cord at least once a week to keep the battery cells active and at their peak potential. When your laptop is plugged into the power adapter the battery goes to “standby mode” while your laptop runs directly on electricity from the wall outlet. Even though your battery indicates it is fully charged, your battery will return to a weakened state again in a few months if it does not get some exercise through partial discharge and recharge cycles while running on battery power alone. If your battery has not been actively used 2 months or more, condition your battery again with 5 partial discharge & recharge cycles to increase the batteries capacity and run time. Don’t run your battery all the way to empty. Your battery will have a longer service

BABATON 1-01: Aritzia’s in-house studio collection Babaton, known for its minimalist take on basic wardrobe essentials and sold exclusively at the retailer, is launching a more upscale companion.

David Collins Studio Looks Back, and Ahead With Exhibition

PART OF THE FURNITURE: David Collins Studio marked 30 years in the interiors business with a flash exhibition at Phillips in London that looked backward — and forward in time. The 24-hour show, “Past Present Future,” addressed those themes, with highlights including a martini cart swiped from The Connaught Hotel’s bar — whose decor is a contemporary riff on Edwardian splendor — and endless images of the restaurants, hotels and private homes that glow with that distinctive Collins halo.
Interiors are filled with rich color palettes, textured surfaces, offbeat details — such as the little gold Champagne buzzers at Bob Bob Ricard in Soho — and, most importantly, flattering lighting able to make even sleep-deprived individuals glow.
The exhibition featured images, sketches, Post-it notes from Collins, swatches and even an example of the delicate molding — with a feathery wing pattern — that Sarah Burton, Alexander McQueen’s creative director, created with the studio for the store interiors. There were images of the Graff estate in South Africa — where the terrace follows the curve of the mountainside — and examples of the painted silk and hand-stitched panels of Hyde Park at The London hotel in Manhattan. The interiors of Collins own apartment

Breedlove Studio Series Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar w/Gig Bag

Breedlove Studio Series Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar w/Gig Bag


The Studio Dreadnought is designed specifically for players who want to cast a deeper sonic imprint in their recordings. This guitar is ideal for creating a signature sound since Indian rosewood often associated with the great dreadnoughts takes its personality from the player. It shines when both mic’d with an external condenser mic, and when plugged in using the internal Fishman INK3 USB electronics. BODY SHAPEBreedlove set out to enhance the traditional dreadnought sound, and the results are evident. If you’re inspired by the familiarity of a dread, but are looking for more nuance and richness than usual, the Breedlove Dreadnought delivers. The shape is slightly more rounded than traditional dreadnoughts and produces beautifully full, punchy, and articulate tones. It also provides excellent projection and articulation, so it excels in any ensemble. The hand-graduated top provides the balance and clarity that make this one of the most innovative and expressive-sounding dreadnoughts on the market. BREEDLOVE PINLESS BRIDGEThe Breedlove Bridge Truss (BBT) reduces tension on the soundboard of the guitar, so the top wood is able to vibrate more freely, producing remarkable sustain, balance, and clarity. The BBT also allows for a thinner graduated top, thereby allowing Breedlove craftsmen to bring out the optimal sound from the top wood without sacrificing structural stability. Relieving much of the string tension from the bridge prevents “bridge belly,” ensuring top stability for decades. Guitar strings can exert up to 230 pounds of pull from the nut to the bridge. Traditional methods for preventing top bowing at the bridge usually involve heavy internal bracing and thicker tops. The BBT compensates for this pressure in an innovative way: The BBT is mounted to the bridge from the inside and is connected into the tail block of the guitar, pulling downward on the underside of the bridge to distribute some of the tension, relieving pressure on the top. The resulting tonal effect on BBT-equipped guitars is more resonance and livelier sound with enhanced overtones. BREEDLOVE NECKBreedlove guitar necks feature a slimmer neck profile, which enables comfortable play, even with smaller hands. The hand-rubbed, semi-gloss Breedlove neck finish also contributes to ideal playability. The labor-intensive finish process includes precise finish coat applications, fine sanding, and hand buffing and rubbing. TOP WOODSSitka spruce, picea sitchensis, originates in the northwest United States. Sitka spruce has been the primary top wood for American-made instruments for decades. It is strong and light with extended harmonic content, and it nearly equals the power of Adirondack. It offers a strong, focused tone with a solid fundamental – perfect for flatpicking styles. When compared with European spruce, Sitka delivers warmer, more fundamental sound, largely free of overtones. Sitka takes a slightly longer period of playing time to open up. It has a straight uniform grain and coloration ranges from white to pink to light brown. LIMITED LIFETIME WARRANTYBreedlove players around the world can attest: With consistent, proper care, your Breedlove will give you a lifetime of service and inspiration. New Breedlove instruments, purchased through an authorized Breedlove dealer, are warrantied to be free of defects in materials and workmanship throughout the lifetime of the original owner. In addition to materials and workmanship, Breedlove offers a two-year warranty on tuning machines and electronics packages. Cases and bags are subject to a one-year warranty covering defects in structure and hardware.

The Kingdom of Dreams and Madness Movie CLIP – The Last Scene (2014) – Studio Ghibli Documentary HD

Granted near-unfettered access to the notoriously insular Studio Ghibli, director Mami Sunada follows the three men who are the lifeblood of Ghibli – the eminent director Hayao Miyazaki, the producer Toshio Suzuki, and the elusive and influential “other director” Isao Takahata – over the course of a year as the studio rushes to complete two films, Miyazaki’s The Wind Rises and Takahata’s The Tale of The Princess Kaguya. The result is a rare “fly on the wall” glimpse of the inner workings of one of the world’s most celebrated animation studios, and an insight into the dreams, passion and singular dedication of these remarkable creators.

Studio 54 — the Era, the Madness, the Decadence

“EVEN IF WE win, we lose,” wrote Andrew Bacevich in The Washington Post.

     This quote caused a stir in D.C.if nowhere else. It was reprinted in The Week along with the following:

  “Since 1980, American troops have invaded, occupied, or bombed 14 Muslim countries — and almost every time, whether or not we achieved our initial aims, the interventions have created more problems than they have solved. These ‘fool’s errands’ tend to start the same way: In a bid to maintain stability in the Middle East and protect our oil interests, America’s leaders unleash ‘a bit of near-term chaos, betting that long-term order will emerge.’ 
   
Alas, because we’re so much better at ‘regime change’ than at ‘nation building,’ we always leave behind a power vacuum, as in Iraq after Saddam Hussein and Libya after Muammar al-Qaddafi.  Groups like ISIS then see an opportunity to ‘supplant the European-imposed post-Ottoman order with something more to their liking’ — and the instability continues. Defeating ISIS wouldn’t stop this cycle; another like-minded group would simply step up. No matter how long it lasts, America’s war for the ˝Greater Middle East will fail.”

• WHEN I HEARD that Jay Leno, an idol of mine for his intelligent fair-mindedness, was coming back to TV and not retiring, I was expecting him to stick with “entertainment.” And I was looking forward to it.  But now, as you know, he is going to be talking about his hobby and love affair with things automotive. (The Hollywood Reporter says contracts haven’t yet been signed, nor a date set for the debut on CNBC. It is tentatively titled Jay Leno’s Garage.)
       
 If you were slightly disappointed at the news that Jay is leaving “show biz” and celebrities behind, well, don’t be.

He isn’t really if he follows in the footsteps of one of the longest running shows since 1997. And that is the BBC’s hit Top Gear, which has been described as “the most widely watched factual TV program in the world.”

        A teenager convinced me to start looking at Britain’s Top Gear, although at the time I thought it was crazy.  What? Me and automobiles and racing and motor competitions?  But I started with this enthralling classic and I am constantly going back to watch the earlier versions of it.  Jeremy Clarkson is the “star,” with his competitive pals who do outrageous things. They make it all very exciting.  Sometimes they go into the studio and talk with famous guests about the art of driving.  Helen Mirren stands out in my mind as one “biggie” who had something to say about being behind the wheel.

       I know Jay’s show will be his own idea and it will be Americanized and different.  But I’m just advising you if you’ve never seen Top Gear to see it for yourself.   (You will be surprised at what you learn and experience, from Model T’s to Lamborghinis.) 

      I don’t drive anymore but I loved finding out about The Stig, so mysterious on Top Gear. And I can’t wait for Jay Leno to do his own thing.      

•I see my friend, S. Epatha Merkerson has joined the AARP Bulletin parade with a cover story, “Surviving Diabetes.”

    If you wonder at her unusual name, here is Epatha’s personal quote: ” My dad said he had a teacher named Epatha who was influential in keeping him in school. But my mother said it was an old girlfriend of his. So that’s why she stuck in the Sharon Epatha. That’s what the ‘S’ stands for. Everyone knows now because some numbskull I went to high school with decided to put it on the Internet.” When you see her, you will realize she served as Lieutenant Anita Van Buren on “Law and Order” for many, many seasons. (In fact, she is the longest-running African-American character in history of prime time television.)

 She is a giant talent!

•YESTERDAY, we told you about the oncoming, conflicting books about Studio 54. Today we tell you that the 1970s revival is in full force. The ultimate libertine era of the 20th century will be celebrated with a giant tome, titled Seventies Glamour. This is by David Wills who did the splendid Marilyn Monroe: Metamorphosis, a couple of years ago. The Seventies book is marvelously designed by Stephen Schmidt.

The photos — everybody from Candy Darling, to Divine to John Travolta, Grace Jones, Debbie Harry, Diane von Furstenberg, Diana Ross, and nameless, beautiful decadent others come through in vibrant color.

Ah, the Seventies! Let’s get out our platform shoes, put that glitter on our lips, paint on your pants, boys and girls, and shake your groove things.

We can skip the sex and drugs. In the end, excess was not the way to go. But — who can deny the fun along the way?

•IT IS SO nice to hear that the two movies I most recommended of late have both landed right side up!   

      Guardians of the Galaxy, which sounds a little unlikely for an ancient like me, ended last week doing $ 2 million and it has been out a long time now.  Figures for what it will do around the world are astronomical.  This is a clever, clever film which you’ll fall in love with just like I did. Even if you think you don’t like science fiction fantasy.
       
Gone Girl is a hit too, a big hit for Ben Affleck, The controversy of whether it depicts women badly is ridiculous. There are examples of bad women all through literature and story-telling.  Because Gone Girl examines one of them doesn’t mean that all females are like our wily “heroine.” 

     More movies: Today, Brad Pitt and Shia LaBeouf show their Fury in theaters around the country. This World War II saga has already received some excellent reviews. Unlike Brad’s turn in Inglorious Basterds there’s nothing even remotely amusing about this one. War is hell, period.

Learn ASP.NET 4.0, C# and Visual Studio 2010 Expert Skills with The Smart Method


This book is very, very different to any other computer book you have ever read. The Smart Method provides an entirely new and better way to learn ASP.NET, C# and Visual Studio. Here are just five of the many ways in which this book is unique: This book won’t waste your time by teaching basic skills that you already know. All of that material is covered already in our beginner’s Essential Skills book. By assuming that you are already able to use the basic features, far more ground can be covered. This is the only book that is also available as a low-cost video (DVD). Each can be used as a stand-alone product, but together they provide an incredibly powerful learning experience. Instruction is logically structured into sessions and lessons. While this makes the book ideal for self-instruction, you can also use it to run your own, highly effective, adult training courses. Every lesson is presented on two facing sheets of A4 paper (the pages are much bigger than in any other ASP.NET book). Each lesson has a sample file that models a real-world business problem. Along with programming skills, this book teaches best practices that are often ignored by other books.You’ll immediately appreciate the value and relevance of each skill as it is taught. Advanced concepts are explained without needless technical jargon. Everything is concisely described in a simple, no-nonsense way.From the Back CoverAmongst other things you’ll learn how to:Use cutting-edge AJAX techniques Use multi-threading techniques to take advantage of multiple processors Create and use web services Understand and use regular expressions Manipulate graphics to create a ‘captcha’ system Use ListView and Chart controls Encrypt and decrypt data Compress and decompress data Use compiler directives Use HTTP handlers and modules Create secure and hacker-proof web …

Milky PinUps: AurumLight Studio Splashes Milk On Models, We Begin Search For Cookies (PHOTOS)

We’ll never cry over spilt milk again.

AurumLight Studio, a London-based conceptual photography business, is making a splash with its fresh take on old pin-up photos. Pouring milk on models sounds easy — but photographer Jaroslav Wieczorkiewicz captures the liquid in such a way that it looks like a perfectly crafted dress.

Plenty of his galleries are more serious in nature, but the former architect thought he’d have some fun with these ladies, who he’s putting in a calendar — thankfully — coming soon.

“This time I thought it will be cool to approach the liquid theme in a more relaxed and funny way,” Wieczorkiewicz writes on his blog. “So we threw some colors into the mix and came up with a personal Milky PinUp tribute to my favorite pin-up style artists.”

You can learn how to Milky PinUp, too. He’ll be touring in the United States in 2014 to teach his wholesome craft. In the meantime, check out his Facebook page, his high-resolution shots, and the photos below.
