MIX OF THE WEEK: Betonkunst on Operator

Now wait a sec - just wanted to address the elephant in the room real quick. Yes, this mix is technically from last week, but we desperately needed to carry some of the energy into this week. All over The Netherlands on Saturday, hundreds of thousands of people gathered in masse to protest against the government's embargo on the cultural industry via disproportionate COVID restrictions. GLAMCULT was in attendance, surrounded by some of our favorite stations - such as Radion - and amazing local venues, bringing music back to the streets and feeling the love from our community.

Catch a break with ASICS Sportstyle

Inspiration takes course through many different avenues but looking into the past to help draw the future seems like a perfect starting point. ASICS SportStyle has done just that, announcing the release of their GEL-1130TM trainer. The elevated remix of the classic silhouette takes president with the inclusion of that oh so sought after ASICS innovation; keeping our feet comfy and our style cute.

Are you ready to climb "LA MONTAGNE"?

One thing we crave most during the wintertime is the warmth - a feeling Jacquemus could not have encapsulated any better than in their new campaign for Winter 2021, "LA MONTAGNE". Images shot in front of lush Hawaiian mountain peaks bring us back down to earth in a celebration of our literal roots - our families. Loving embraces, kisses, wide smiles, and hand-holding make the campaign an intimate celebration of unconditional love.

There are always steps we must take alone - however, 'three's a crowd' never felt so good!  There are countless, valuable relationships in our lives, but few are as fiery as that with a lover (or two) - so when we heard the Kiss of Death had come back as inspiration... our eyes went straight to Nike x sacai x CLOT's direction for their latest three-way.

MIX OF THE WEEK: whynow presents NIKS X Amaliah

Founder and director of Black Artist Database, NIKS alongside the ultra-talented Amaliah have put together a two-hour mix for your listening pleasure. The duo, featuring on whynow radio are a match made in heaven as the experience begins with the soulful, house vibe before moving into some unreleased tracks with a heavier jazz-electronic hit. The mix consists of two halves, as we are first blessed with the ear (and very soothing voice) of NIKS before she introduces her guest Amaliah who - post-conversation - brings with her some dub smashes (with Y2K influences) ready to be heard, danced-to and enjoyed on the loudest speakers you've got.  Settle in, settle up and tune in now.

It's the marmite debate; you either love them, hate them or INSIST you're wearing them ironically, crocs are a hot topic we are (with reservation) about to jump into. The American-based company, which reared its comfy yet charged head back in 2001, is today a global phenomenon representing the nostalgia of our childhood holidays alongside the stylishness of its consented (and non-consensual ?) reworks.

It takes two – Bridging the gap between intention and action

Drastic measurements have to be taken in order to reduce fashion’s crushing environmental footprint. The good news is that, similarly to the raise of vegetarianism over the past decade, it’s getting easier and easier to shop more sustainably nowadays, and more difficult to keep sticking our heads in the sand. Zalando has taken the initiative to analyse the ways in which both companies and costumers can improve their ways – because if one thing for sure, it takes two. Here’s where it gets juicy: when being asked which single word the respondents associated with ‘sustainable fashion’, the most commonly found word was guilty, whereas the least common one was fun.

His latest Sogno EP and upcoming album Unison, both produced with his founded label Nervous Horizon, draws influences from Italian folk music and ancient choral acoustics, but most importantly, "it focuses on the collective experiences of music that we have all so dearly missed"...

There we all were, patiently waiting and observing the jazzy preamble, until a sudden stillness hit.... a certain serenity filled only with the inevitable clacking of heels, dragging of dresses, clicking camera's, and the occasional incoming messages...

The fashion industry is a forever turning universe in which new ideas evoke transformative changes within this irrevocably dystopian world. This year’s KABK end-of-year presentation exemplified nothing less.

Dior Men Spring 2022

From sleeky black silhouettes to rodeo saddle bags: this Dior Men 2022 collection was clearly the outcome of many conversations between creative director Kim Jones and his muse of the moment, Travis Scott. It's undeniable that the Houston rapper is one of this era's most influential style icons. From front seat to a seat at the design table, this two-man partnership was only the next logical step. Together, they have created a playful balance between Jones' finely tailored cuts and Scott's signature colour combinations (not to forget his ways of styling Dior's diverse bag legacy).

Catching a sneak-preview, last week GLAMCULT went to check-out KABK’s (Royal Academy of Art The Hague’s) next generation in their end of year show: Exposed. As always, it was a finale like no other and an experience that can only be harnessed by designers who ignite the freedom of preparing to take on the world. This year, the show takes place within the monumental Electricity Factory in The Hague, providing an industrial backdrop to the works of Annli Basedahl, Sina Dyks, Luka Dortmans, Yulia Hmarnaia, Petra Huisman, Pien Klein Douwel, Jiahao Li, Marlien Peeters, Stef Reinierse, Anwen Xu and Keep an Eye Textile & Fashion Scholarship winner Max Willebrand Westin.

Cassyette

In between making metal remix Tik Tok’s and planning her first headline show, we got to chat to Cassyette about her style influences and how post-lockdown has changed the way she makes music. Essex born singer slash songwriter, Cassyette, is a breath of fresh air in the Punk/Metal music scene. Releasing her first EP Jean back in 2019, she is back with a brand new single and a totally different sound. “I think as an artist you are always changing and being reactive to what’s going on in life at the time. Jean feels like a different person but it was just a different era for me. Jean is way more glam and light compared to what I am making now. It makes sense because a lot has happened in my personal life since that has totally changed me as a person.” Cassyette’s change of sound happened organically and is a lot darker and angrier than the Jean era.

No one does on-location quite like Rick Owens. The powerhouse recently shared with the world his Spring 2022 Menswear collection late last week, marking the final chapter in his Venetian tetralogy. Ceremoniously walking away from the pier of his previous show, we see angel-like models dressed in Owen's typically tonal palette streamlining through the sand, framed by both the sea and fountains of water shooting into the sky; connoting what can only be described as a heavenly ascent. Garments flowing in the wind, armed with the power of Poseidon, it's hard not to revel in their tenacity, technicality and the looks overall immortality before diving right into all the details we are faced with.
