Kate Moss on the Bowery15/03/2012
Our girl Mandi Lennard stumbled across these Supreme x Kate Moss posters that had been re-appropriated by some unknown graff artists on the Bowery today. The posters have been plastered all over New York and London to celebrate the Supreme Spring 2012 campaign since last month. Thanks Mandi for the pictures.

Kris Van Assche Interview
"Balancing a nostalgic historical sense with radical modernism", Kris Van Assche is a designer who represents the modern era with a defining aesthetic of nonchalant elegance. The Belgian born designer has seen his abilities grow and grow since starting his own label in 2005, culminating in him being appointed artistic director for Dior Homme in 2007. Impelled by a vision of the man who takes the time to "dress up", Kris Van Assche has embarked on an esthetic quest, pursuing a new masculinity infused with poetry and authenticity.

Sebastien Tellier Interview14/03/2012
It is the many mediums of French artist Sebastien Tellier that define his critique and approach to music. The singer, songwriter and multi-intrumentalist has made great progression since releasing his first album L'incroyable Verite and going on tour with Air, certainly not a bad way to start out. To date Tellier has produced nine albums and his latest, My God Is Blue, makes for another comprehensive installation.

Ryan Sullivan's First Solo Show13/03/2012
It is your last chance to see New York-based artist Ryan Sullivan's first solo show at the Maccarone Gallery which closes March 17th. "In several large-scale paintings, Sullivan tempers gesture and authorship through an entropic set of actions. The works often invoke topographies, with a strikingly physical surface that undermines simple signification. The cracks, mounds and fissures manifest the electric instability of the painted surface while rendering the precarious state permanent."

Casa Del Fascio12/03/2012
Architect Giuseppe Terragni (1904-1943) was a key figure in the development of the Italian Rationalist movement, and worked primarily in the Lombardia region of Northern Italy during the fascist regime of Benito Mussolini. Terragni was able to translate into architecture the key ideologies, symbols and metaphors of Mussolini's fascism described as thus:
"Fascism, a house of glass into which everyone can see, giving rise to this wholly faithful interpretation: no encumbrance, no barrier, no obstacle between the political leaders and their people."
