KENZO Releases Short Film “Club Ark Eternal” to Introduce Their Spring/Summer Line

A paean to club culture, fashion, and dance directed by Partel Oliva

Nightclubs are spaces of energy and release, a place to cast off work-week worries and inhabit a truer, freer self. The sun sets and inhibitions are left behind, music enlivening the bodies of congregating dancers, the darkness and anonymity allowing for self-reinvention and the amalgamation of people and cultures who might not cross paths during the day. This is the […]

A couch–mangled almost beyond recognition, curiously covered with pennies–sighs behind red rope as Arthur Johnston’s 1936 pop hit “Pennies from Heaven” plays softly from two speakers. The piece, titled “Couch Destruction: Angel Release (Pennies from Heaven)” and created by Raphael Montañez Ortiz is presented by LACMA.  Spectators sit patiently on folding chairs, quietly taking in the strange tableau.

Tulum-inaughty and Hotel Encantada

A conversation with the co-owner of the Flaunt-loved eco-resort.

When it comes to the dance floor, we at Flaunt are irrefutable devotees of the drop, aficionados of the attack, and connoisseurs of the can-can, the cha-cha, and in the company of our fashionable pals, by any means necessary: the Charleston. Knowing this, do you think we’re liable to sit, shackled to our desks here in Hollywood all week while the […]

Sebastian Copeland

The award-winning environmental photographer has been documenting the destruction of the Artic ice caps for the better part of 20 years

“I was obsessed with water.” Sebastian Copeland admits, “to the extent where I even contemplated stealing my partner’s water at times. I was thinking maybe I could just go and steal a gulp.” Desperation can do funny things to human beings, and Copeland discovered a deep layer of it during his 26-day, 404-mile trek across Australia’s Simpson Desert this year.

In the same way that Aerosmith are the American version of The Rolling Stones, the acclaimed photographer Michael Zagaris could well be described as the American Mick Rock. The acclaimed image-maker has documented the hidden side of rock’n’roll for nigh on thirty years, living a life ensconced in the inner circle of legendary bands as they took to the road […]

Columnist Melanie Jane Parker explores the psychology of a climate change denier

In the morning, before I leave for work, […]
