The Three Musketeers

# T H E A R T O F R E L AT I O N S H I P As you can see, our cover is graced by three beautiful and talented young women, Jessica Mila, Michelle Joan and Pamela Bowie. But, we are not talking about feminism here, instead the inspiring story behind their friendship. Fame, beauty, good career are not drawing their attention into a competition. They choose to empower each other and have fun with their togetherness. It is a bit rare to find in the era of “social media” where people are competing each other to win the trophy from followers or netizen. That’s what making us digging deeper into their closeness and asking them to join our “Friendship Test” quiz just to find out how well they know each other.

We also want to celebrate the joy of relationship with the hype of Oscars award night. In this special article, we are giving you the full list of the winners from The Academy Awards 2021. And we have special review for two best movies (in our opinion) that reflects the best meaning of “human relationship”: The Father and Sound of Metal.

Wait no more, make your tea and enjoy this special issue, while it is still free ;)

100th Anniversary Collection of


ichele is fashion’s ultimate collaborator, having partnered with everyone from Dapper Dan to North Face on Instagram gold capsule collections, and here brought his friend Balenciaga creative director Demna Gvasalia along to the party. The festivities kicked off at an imaginary Savoy Club inspired by the famous London hotel where Gucci founder Guccio Gucci once worked as maitre d’ before returning to Florence and opening a small leather leather goods store in 1921. The soundtrack—featuring “Gucci Gang” by Lil Pump, “Green Gucci Suit” by Rick Ross feat. Future, “Gucci On My Bag” by Mier, and “Gucci Coochie” by Die

Antwoord and Dita Von Teese—riffed on the brand’s rise to pop culture ubiquity in the century since. There was a pared-back focus to Michele’s madcap pilings that have seemed to become more ornate with each passing season. Gucci and Balenciaga logos were splashed across monogram outerwear and boulder shoulder, wasp waist suiting—clearly Demna’s influence. They also featured prominently on layered chain-link necklaces as well as signature Balenciaga accessories such as Hourglass bags and pantaboots. The partnership between the two Kering hitmakers is a match made in retail heaven.


ut Michele’s references were far wider-ranging than Balenciaga circa the 2020s. “Gucci becomes for me a hacking lab, made of incursions and metamorphoses,” the designer explained in his show notes. “I have plundered the nonconformist rigour of Demna Gvasalia and the sexual tension of Tom Ford; I have lingered over the anthropological implications of what shines, working on the brightness of fabrics; I have celebrated the equestrian world of Gucci transfiguring it into a fetish cosmogony; I have sublimated Marilyn Monroe’s silhouette and old Hollywood’s glamour;

I sabotaged the discreet charm of the bourgeoisie and the codes of men’s tailoring.”Indeed there was an inherent sexiness to the proceedings, not seen at Gucci since the Tom Ford era. These included some literal references, like a remake of Gwyneth Paltrow’s iconic red velvet suit she wore to the 1996 MTV Video Music Awards. Others were more oblique, like riding helmets and diamante whips that the models cracked while walking down the runway—a funny, dominatrix-inspired riff on Gucci’s saddlemaker origins.


ressed in the most glittering of glad rags, the models looked ready to get loose in the club, as just about everyone is right now. But as the Gucci-Balenciaga Gang emerged from the darkness to frolic in the sun it appeared that Michele had a different sort of celebration in mind that felt right for a world still very much in the grips of a pandemic. “To these creatures, my praise,” he wrote. “To their being fragile and vulnerable. To their ability to renew and get back to life after winter has passed.” Be still my Gucci crystal-embellished heart minaudière.

D-Muse editor: Rather than talking about the movie editing, we’d like to appreciate more on the movie making as a whole from the story-telling to the incredible performance by the underrated actor, Riz Ahmed. Yes, The Sound of Metal is definitely one of the top films this year and it has everything to do with the simply-perfection performances of the lead actor Riz Ahmed. With blond hair it’s hard to even place him as a Pakistani playing the role. Ahmed is an intense actor and takes us into the world of a tormented drummer trying to come to terms with losing his hearing not long after overcoming addiction. This new battle takes him into an unfamiliar world where the sound design helps the audience feel what the protagonist must feel. This film selves into experimentation with the auditory experience of cinema. Congratulations for the winning, eventhough in our opinion, they deserves more.

Best actress in a leading role Viola Davis, Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom Andra Day, The United States vs Billie Holiday Vanessa Kirby, Pieces of a Woman Frances McDormand, Nomadland – WINNER Carey Mulligan, Promising Young Woman D-Muse editor: Anthony Hopkins deserves his second Oscar this year. Eventhough as reported, Anthony was shocked of this winning, in our opinion this is his best performance after playing a role in Silence of The Lambs. The way he acts as a dementia father is so natural yet incredible. With all the knowledge of dementia and without making the story became “too heavy”, Anthony Hopkins and the director, Florian Zeller has led The Father touched so many hearts.
