Horst Egon Kalinowski at Rick Owens London19/12/2011
Horst Egon Kalinowski, the German Artist best known for his geometric abstraction recently showed his latest retrospective in a somewhat different space, Rick Owen's London Flagship Store. The exhibition was made up of the artist reconstructed sculptures intermingling, salvaged skin, wood work, rusted manacles, and of course concrete plinths. The relationship was born out of Owen's ownership of numerous pieces of Kalinowski's work, but resulted in bringing the highly successful artists work to a new audience.

Rick Owens Illustrated19/12/2011
Rick Owens Spring/Summer 2012 collection which debuted in Milan presented a refined and masculine range full of tension and drama.

The Horrors Interview
Speaking with Tim Cowen
Having released their third album this year The Horrors have continued to grow and develop a distinctive sound that defines this group of five men. I caught up with Tim Cowen about all things to do with The Horrors, from their roots, the internet, to a recent project with Beck's on the Green Box Project initiative.

Thom Browne Interview
Talking Thom Browne Eyewear by DITA
Designer Thom Browne and eyewear makers DITA embarked on a new partnership for fall/winter 2011 as the two come together to debut a line of frames. The collection is defined by Browne's distinctive aesthetic, with the New York based designer leading the way in with what he refers to as "American sensibility". This combined with DITA's unquestionable craftsmanship which leaves no detail left aside or technical aspect left untested makes for a project of great distinction, and one setting a strong precedent.

Agathe Snow Interview
Agathe Snow is an artist. Her mediums are detritus, broken machines, lights, earth, cloth dancing, paint, metal, video, zip ties, food and other people. With these materials she explores ideas of decay and dissolution, the constant motion of living, of leaving a mark, universality, defining and blurring, exhaustion, endurance and anticipation. Snow is from Corsica originally, but she is a downtown New York artist through and through, even if she has moved to the countryside. It was in New York that she recognized herself as an artist, and it was New York that first recognized her.
