Crystal Moselle Recipe09/03/2012
Crystal Moselle is a New York based Director - and in my opinion one of the best young directors in the world - her first feature documentary 'Excavating Taylor Mead' was part of the 2006 Whitney Bienniel, since then she has made films for the likes of The Virgins, Philip Lim, worked with Spike Jonze, Levis, The New York Times and numerous others. She's also a health food addict so when we asked her for a recipe, she hit us with something to keep you on your toes, Split Pea Soup.

Oscar Tuazon at the Whitney Biennial07/03/2012
Oscar Tuazon’s For Hire piece has debuted in the Lobby Gallery of the 2012 Whitney Biennial. The site specific piece is a series of rectangular modules created from galvanized steel, acrylic, douglas fir, glass and plastic. "Tuazon’s environment offers a meditation on the materiality of utilized substances and a hint of practical usage via the occasional screen door, parts of an elevator, fluorescent lights, staircases, tile, and a shower." This allows the viewer to reflect on the pieces evolving function.

Ian Astbury Interview07/03/2012
Since meeting Ian Astbury a few years ago through a mutual friend, the late, great Shawn Mortensen, I have been able to cross paths with the artist in various parts of the world, each time as intriguing as the last. Often updating each other on various projects, when POST NEW launched and news of The Cult releasing a new album, what better time to interview the man about the latest project. In true philosophical and "nomadic" style that I have been able to embrace from Ian over the years, he answered my questions in true form.
Micah Cohen Interview
Shades of Grey by Micah Cohen
Micah Cohen at only 30 years old has made a name for himself and his brand Shades of Grey by Micah Cohen, through his mission to produce wearable and accessible clothing while comprimising none of the contemporary aesthetic and attitude - in the brand's own words "blurring the line between fashion forward and traditional." The result has become hugely popular not only in the United States but around the world, with Cohen continuing to upset the global fashion market with his refreshing attitude towards both design and business.

In an intimate presentation in Paris, Phoebe Philo as you would expect has created a Fall Celine wardrobe that will leave women all over the world drooling. When speaking of her collection the pregnant designer laughed “Ergh, I’d rather not say anything this season, just write what you see.” For Fall the pants are a little more voluminous and cropped at the ankle, the coats oversized, statement knits and colour-blocked furs are tied together by practical iPad envelopes and mink bags.
