GRAFFITI ON THE RIGHT SIDE…

Posted in Art by stylecouch on April 7, 2010

Worldwide graffiti is a hated and loved art style , however for me it gives edge and personality to a city as long as it is not just untalented destroying graffiti. After watching this film I was dreaming about being a real graffiti artist. The movie explores the creative process of London based artist WordToMother and the lead up to his third solo show ‘Lost For Words’ at Stolen Space Gallery. A least I would let this guy spray allover around where I live!!!

BLACK POSITIVITY IN THE TIMES OF RECESSION

Posted in Fashion by stylecouch on June 17, 2009

With a positive strategy in mind, Comme des Garçons is launching a new black collection in my absolute favorite store Dover Street Market! Rei Kawabuko is using key words as accessibility, personality, temporary, iconic, energy, cool, positive and good looking. The collection contains only black items, concentrated on popular CdG styles which will be sold in large volumes in small temporary spaces between 25-40 square metres. Seems as a reaction against the luxury retail expansions of the recent years. The London shop is opening tomorrow!

BOURGEOIS & MAURICE

Posted in Uncategorized by stylecouch on June 12, 2009

The London cabaret artist duo Bourgeois & Maurice claims that they met on a self-help workshop – which is only giving their story more edge and craziness! They disliked each other from the first sight – but after being kicked out of the sessions they found each other and agreed on making their own speciel version of a self-help group in the shape of Cabaret performance in London. Bourgeois & Maurice are a musical alt-cabaret duo on a mission to better the lives of all humans in the world…starting with their own! They are playing and an asexual male and female couple. Bistroteque is one of the place to find the amazing couple live – having a dinner there and watching a show must be fantastic. Enjoy the lovely photos!!
