The photography of Yamamoto Masao

as seen in his new imprint “Tori”

The first animals to evolve the capacity to fly (at least on this planet) appear to have been dragonfly-looking beasts that swarmed over the swamps and forests during the Carboniferous period 350 million years ago. Wings have had a troubled but productive time since, going from pterodactyls to seagulls to vampire bats to Paul McCartney. Wings offer elevation, escape, and […]

Composer Hanan Townshend on becoming Terence Malick’s go-to

When Terrence Malick’s Knight of Cups came out last spring—the third film in a spate of unusual productivity for the enigmatic auteur—it prompted what is now the patented Terrence Malick response: a lot of people talked about seeing the film; some went; many hated it and said so; and a few loved it, but didn’t want to talk about it. […]

A Primer on the Above Water Board and a Sinking Art World

Sometimes we all need saving. There’s no shame in it—a frantic shared glance at a cocktail party when the company turns sub-par, an emergency loan after an investment property turns sub-prime, a knee-bound plea to a higher power (like Bernie Sanders) when your vote gets sub-Primaried. Dick Van Dyke was saved at sea by a school of porpoises. Cities are […]

Meet Luka Sabbat, the 18-year-old style icon about to take the world by storm

Kids these days, amirite? What’s with these genderfluid smartphone-toting agents of change, walking around with blue hair and bones in their noses, brandishing names like “influencer” before they’re legally capable of being under the influence and cultivating their own personal brand across an ever-expanding network of platforms? Is that insecurity I detect in your professed quizzicality? Jealousy? Are you as […]

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 […]
