Chrono Speedometer Official

Speedometer Official has designed a collection of bangles that use the same design as the famed Rolex Oyster watch bezels – not only for fast and furious car enthusiasts, naturally. trans Introducing the Speedometer Official Bracelets Speedometer Official came up with an indeed very clever design for some cool wrist gear. In fact, the Italian brand tapped the design of the Rolex Submariner, Rolex Explorer and of course Rolex GMT-Master to create a very stylish set of of marine steel wrist bangles.These Speedometer Official bangles are both designed, and created in Italy out of 316L marine steel and aluminium, they come in a variety of styles and colors (including steel and blacked out steel versions).

Did you know that? A speedometer or a speed meter is a gauge that measures and displays the instantaneous speed of a land vehicle. Speedometers for other vehicles have specific names and use other means of sensing speed. For a boat, this is a pit log. For an aircraft, this is an airspeed indicator. Charles Babbage has been credited with creating an early type of a speedometer, which was fitted to locomotives. The electric speedometer was invented by the Croatian Josip Belušić back in 1888, and was originally called a velocimeter. Mind that the isochronous speedometer was first patented in 1912 by it’s inventor Bahne Bonniksen, a Danish horologist who came to England as a young man to learn his trade. Before 1912 speedometer mechanisms relied mostly on “governor” type systems where spinning bobweights would be flung further outwards as the road speed increased. These devices were rather inaccurate, being affected by vibration, friction and wear in the moving parts. Bonniksen’s new speedo used a totally fresh approach. He reasoned that speed is simply distance divided by time. His mechanism measures time using a watch-type movement. Speedometerofficial.it p .

confessions Manfred Thierry Mugler In the 1990s, Thierry Mugler made fashion history with high octane runway way shows and his gourmet fragrances, which remain top of best-selling perfume lists today. Having been discreet for a few years, the artistic director is back with a new name, Manfred Thierry Mugler, a new goliath-esque body and a new job as music-hall director. Why made you decide to give up fashion in 2003? Manfred Thierry Mugler: Mainly because fashion was an incredible means of artistic expression in the 70s, 80s and 90s, but it wasn’t like that anymore in the 2000s when creation was completely stifled by marketing and business. Not to mention the most infernal pace and impossible deadlines to keep up with between the cruise collections, the pre-collections, the menswear and the womenswear, the ready-to-wear, the haute couture… You just have to look at all the designers who’ve either lost it or decided to quite while the going’s good. I have to say that I always saw fashion as a very useful and exciting vector for stage direction, but one that has limits. For 20 years my heart broke having to refuse video and performance projects because I simply didn’t have enough time. To shoot a video in Los Angeles for example, you had to be reactive within three weeks, and so I missed out on doing films for Cher – in her heyday - Aretha Franklin, Bette Midler and so many others. Although as you must know I did find time to make Too Funky for George Michael… Why have you rechristened yourself Manfred Thierry Mugler? I didn’t rechristen myself, Manfred is my real first name, the one that appears on my passport. For the fashion world I needed a name that was more synthetic, and for a French brand the name Manfred, with its Austro-German resonances, did quite hit the mark. So, I kept my real name tucked away all these years and started using it again recently for these new, more personal adventures that are more linked to my childhood.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of being rich and famous? The advantages are that there’s always a table for you in a restaurant, and you can turn up bare chested at the hotel at 3am, when its minus 15 degrees. The disadvantages are that when you’re chilling in a night club there’ll always be someone to throw themselves on the floor and lick your boots. MuglerUSA.com p .

Your change of name seems to be accompanied by a rather astonishing physical metamorphosis… What’s that all about? It’s not so much a transformation as an evolution, the search for a physique more in tune with my state of mind. One of the other reasons I left fashion was because I got so screwed up over twenty years of sleepless nights creating superheroes and superheroines. It reached a point where I was so pissed off with putting myself down to elevate others and I said to myself, “That’s enough bullshit, from now on I am going to take care of myself for a while and become what I was when I was a kid: strong and physical, a joker and a fighter.” Don’t forget that I was a dancer for 15 years, that I’ve done huge amounts of acrobatics, trapeze and kathakali – an Indian dance that’s a mix of martial arts, mime and singing – a sport that’s very complete, very violent, very telluric, very hard. The physical mutation was a sort of return to myself, a repairing and reconstruction too.

Alexandra & Tapestry By Wayward

London based electronic duo Wayward return with their ‘Alexandra EP' on Silver Bear Recordings, featuring new tracks ‘Alexandra’ and ‘Tapestry’, including remixes from Man Power and Hammer. A continuation of their recently acclaimed EP ‘Orissa’ released in April, the duo introduce new analogue driven sounds and draw inspiration from their experiences and travels in the summer of 2016. "After playing 'Alexandra' at our shows over the last 6 months, it's been a highlight in our sets and it felt like the right follow up to the Orissa EP,” they explain. The duo go on to detail the EP: "'Alexandra' came about through a Friday night fork in a road, to go to out partying or stay in the studio. The urge to make a tune was stronger in the end and we ended up producing 'Alexandra' that night. To our friend Alex - sorry we didn't make it to your party but we named a track after you instead. 'Tapestry' was the first track we made on the DSI Tempest, which we recently purchased. It took about 4 hours to make and then it sat inside the machine for a good few months. Something about the rawness of the drums and the naivety of the sounds that comes from not really knowing how to use the machine properly yet brought a unique vibe to the track. To have Man Power on the remix is very special for us. After witnessing his performance first hand at panorama bar we both became fans instantly, its great to have him involved and for him to do such a sterling job!"

Wayward have had a multitude of coverage including Pitchfork, Mixmag and Noisey. They’ve clocked up over 6 million streams online being supported on the airwaves by the likes of Annie Mac, Gilles Peterson, Monki, Moxie and Rob da Bank. This success has transcended onto the road with tour support highlights including Carl Cox, Marco Corola, Gaslamp Killer and Maribou State with festival appearances from Glastonbury to SXSW via Space Ibiza and Fabric Room 1. Recent remixes include Toothless & Alice Jemima. @WaywardMusic p .

Unholy Bobby Saint

Bobby Saint captivates on Unholy, his debut solo EP out today on Shoot To Kill Music. The collection sees Saint flex his vast musical chops (from songwriting to production and all things in between) as he explores the interplay between the divine and the profane. Title track “Unholy” sees the Barbados-born, LA-based artist twang with sinful playfulness over blues rock attitude. Saint funks-out on “Use It,” meshing a bouncy, R&B-tinged bassline with pop-infused neo-soul. It’s followed by the appropriately titled “Sexy,” a libidinous R&B romp that drips of love, lust, and desire, which recently premiered via Afropunk. On “Big Shoes,” a confident Saint struts with gusto as he mixes piercing piano balladry with blossoming crescendos amidst a cinematic backdrop backed by powerfully soulful vocals. Closer “ Fire & Gold” turns an acoustic beauty into a full-fledged, undeniable rock with swagger. Armed with a versatile voice, powerful stage presence, a unique lyrical perspective, and raw, unfettered talent, Bobby Saint is not just one to watch; he’s one to watch out for.

If you haven’t heard of Bobby Saint, but you’ve been on a dancefloor in the past year, you’ve definitely heard him. Saint has built a name for himself as a master collaborator. The multi-instrumentalist, production whiz, and and sonic wunderkind burst onto the scene last year with Upload(June 2016) his joint EP with electronic duo Penthouse Penthouse (Team Supreme) ft. the soulful retro-futurist breakout single “69 Camaro” (1.2 Million streams across Soundcloud, Spotify, and YouTube). @ bobbysaint p .

Listen to Unholy Now “This EP is about freedom, growth, spirituality, views of self, city nights and love.

Apolis Raan and Shea Parton

Apolis (uh–paul–iss) means “global citizen. We are a Certified B Corp. that equips & empowers people." In 2004, brothers Raan and Shea Parton founded Apolis with a simple idea that business can create social change. Their travels abroad immersed them in personal stories of struggle and survival and inspired them to create a business model that bridges commerce and economic development. Along with their commitment to global advocacy, they also understand the importance of sourcing and manufacturing locally. Whether it means partnering with manufacturers in Uganda, Peru, Bangladesh, or around the corner in Los Angeles, the Partons have used their model of “advocacy through industry” to empower people to determine their own future.

"We believe that the commonality between currencies, flags and languages is people. It is people who are the innovators, the advocates, and the revolutionaries. Apolis is a small group of social entrepreneurs who believe that the most valuable practice in creating lasting change is by investing in people." ApolisGlobal.com.com p .

DFT aka Differantly

DFT aka Differantly is a French creative duo working between Paris and Berlin. The artists’ practice ranges from art direction to one line illustration, product design, wall art and installation. With its distinctive single line drawing, the duo deconstructs complex imagery into twodimensional minimalist art, focusing on what creates a subject’s core identity. “During our process, we go through phases that are visually rich and complex before removing what's not substantive. It's a maturation process that can be painful as it consists of letting go, giving up. But, it’s also very demanding as minimalism requests a certain level of perfection. Every element must have its sense, its utility, its intrinsic beauty.” DFT’s original pieces are held around the world and the duo is currently working on making their one line art into sculptures.

Coogi Willie Esco

Renowned lifestyle brand Coogi , returns to its Australian origins with the launch of a men’s knitwear collection “Reimagined”. Famous for its vibrant color palette and intricate textured knits, Coogi is incorporating these beloved elements into a new contemporary 21st century line. Coogi I’s “Reimagined” collection has created bold pieces that seamlessly blend classic features with a modern touch and slimmer fit.

In the early 2000s, the luxury clothing company sadly lost its luster after licensing its name to various discount manufacturers that didn’t uphold the quality of the product. However, Willie Esco, Coogi’s creative director, is hoping to bring Coogi back to its high-end roots and to expand its customer base from fashion insiders, hip-hop heads and hipsters. “My vision is to get it back to competitive with Gucci and Missoni,” says Esco.

Continuing to pay homage to its heritage with textured knitwear and quality craftsmanship, Coogi stays true to is Australian roots.

Pen Alessandro Paglia

Hailing from Milan, the Italian capital of design, Alessandro Paglia has always been fascinated by the sheer elegant simplicity of that most classic of colour combinations, black and white, whether it be in the fine-arts, design, fashion, film or photography. With an education and background in product design and over ten years of experience in that field, Alessandro says “Objects attract me, in particular their aesthetics, textures, materials and volumes. I feel inspired by the stories they tell, their personalities, the ingenuity of their creators, their hidden world. At some point I simply felt that I had to combine these two passions.” The result of this fusion are his exceptional artworks. The use of pen, unlike pencil, allows Alessandro to achieve richer, vivid tones and vibrant textures within his compositions. He utilises intense inky blacks to amplify the interplay between the natural light and his chosen subject. The rough surface of the paper further accentuates this effect. The technique he employs is relatively simple yet quite laborious in its execution, Alessandro says. “I draw the subject with the pen, many pens for each illustration actually, by superimposing layers of chaotic lines on top of one another, until I achieve the right nuances in even the smallest details“. He uses felt-tipped pens with intense fade-resistant water-proof black pigment with tips ranging from 0.1 to 0.8mm. The paper is extra white cold pressed 100% cotton at 640gsm.

“I want to get a surprise, I want to twist and deform the object’s story“. Alessandro then further augments this image with his own hand as he meticulously reproduces his subject in black ink on rough grain paper. Each illustration can represent anywhere from 50 to 250 hours of work. Alessandro’s subjects are often iconic pieces of design history or pop culture. Each of us will be familiar with his subjects and relate to them in our own personal and unique way stemming from our individual experience and memories. However in Alessandro’s work we’ll find these objects subverted and given new context and meaning. Alessandro Paglia is exclusively represented by the cool hunter. Interested buyers contact bill@thecoolhunter.net p .

His method is normally not as simple as just reproducing what is seen in life. Alessandro selects and studies his subject carefully, taking it to the studio he distorts it, enhances it, submerges it, imbues a solid surface with a liquid finish, he breaks it or rebuilds it by combining it with other objects. He then shoots dozens of photos attempting to find that elusive perfect image in terms of composition and contrast of light and shadow.

I started posting muscle art on the web in 2001... Something like that. But I've always drawn muscle guys... I was doing that when I was a kid... Any schooling - formal - for art, if any? I did Beaux-Art school here in France. 5 years of incredible studies... I already loved drawing nudes... Your professional artist inspiration? I won't be very original, Tom of Finland of course had always been a major influence in my work. I've discovered his work when I was in Beaux-Arts school and it was a real shock. What are your tools of the trade (wacom, Photoshop, number 5 pencil, etc.)? I'm working on Zbrush and Blender mostly. I'm sculpting my men using my cintiq tablet. It changed my life working with a cintiq... It was a big investment but I will never regret it. What motivates you to make muscle artwork? Well, it's something I've always liked to do. I've always loved muscle guys and being able to put them on paper has always been something natural. The good thing about CGI is that the technic always evolved. Blender for instance is always improving and allows you to do more and more things. I was very frustrated when I was drawing because it was not really my thing. I'm better at sculpting and modeling, I guess... It's more what I like to do. Is it a time consuming process? Yes it is. Sculpting can be very long. I'm trying to find way to shorten my creation process but it's still very long... And I'm learning a lot as I'm producing new images... You're always learning in life, but with several software to work with everyday like Zbrush, Blender and Marvelous designer, you learn a lot.

Why Muscle? Why not landscapes, still life or kittens? Kittens in 3D would be quite a challenge for me!! But that's a good idea!! Well, because drawing muscles are in my DNA I guess. What do you think the future holds for you - artistically, professionally? Well, I just opened my Patreon page today. Patreon is a great opportunity for me to be able to live from that part of my work. I'd love to be able to work only on my 3D men. That would be fantastic. There's so many things I'd love to do. Creating real 3D figurines, for instance. That would be fantastic!! Patreon is a long term commitment and work. I'll see what the future will bring. AlbronMuscle.com p .

What distracts you? From working? My husband!! LOL Well, i'm lucky because he's leaving me a lot of time to work. What's really distract me to work?... Video games. Even if I play less than before, some games can captivate me totally. I felt entirely into Skyrim. I spent literally hundreds of hours into it. But I love so much doing my work and my men that when I have free time, I work on my men.

Shibari Photography Romain Rivierre RomainRivierre.com Model

Kevin Krämer Shibari Artis Toni Cruz

In Japanese, “Shibari” simply means “to tie”. The contemporary meaning of Shibari describes an ancient Japanese artistic form of rope bondage. The origin of Shibari comes from Hojo-jutsu, the martial art of restraining captives. In Japan from 1400 to 1700, while the local police and Samurai used Hojo-jutsu as a form of imprisonment and torture, the honor of these ancient Samurai warriors required them to treat their prisoners well. So, they used different techniques to tie their prisoners, showing the honor and status of their captured prisoner. In the late 1800's and early 1900's a new form of erotic Hojo-justu evolved, called Kinbaku, the art of erotic bondage. Today, particularly in the west, the art of erotic bondage is typically called Shibari, which is an art of erotic spirituality, not a martial art. Shibari style rigging creates geometric patterns and shapes with rope that contrast beautifully with the human body’s natural curves. The ropes and their texture provide contrast to smooth skin and curves. In Shibari, the model is the canvas, the rope is the paint and brush, and the rigger is the rope artist. The aesthetic arrangement of ropes and knots on the model’s body in Shibari rigging emphasizes characteristics like sensuality, vulnerability, and also strength. The positioning of knots in appropriate places stimulates pressure points on the body, very similarly to acupuncture techniques and Shiatsu, a form of Japanese massage. Some believe a Shibari experience also stimulates Ki energy flow and transfer. p .

Books

In this expansive monograph, we meet the full range of Oehlen’s artistic thoughts and approaches: paintings that integrate mirrors, paintings that are executed strictly in primary colors or only in gray, heavily pixelated paintings produced with the help of one of the first personal computers. We find collaged fragments of garish poster ads on canvases that transforming screaming slogans into abstract elements, charcoal drawings the size of a wall, finger paintings, and paintings in which black treelike silhouettes contort themselves into a lexicon of abstract forms. Throughout, Oehlen transforms the conceptual into the compositional, at once invigorating and challenging the viewer. Revising and updating TASCHEN’s previous Collector’s Edition, this revelatory survey explores Oehlen’s trajectory from his early days up to the present. It features more than 400 paintings as well as insightful commentaries and interviews, covering Oehlen’s different work stages and approaches. Roberto Ohrt’s essay takes us back to the special vibe of the early 1980s where Oehlen worked alongside Kippenberger, Büttner, and others, part of a scene that painted quickly and close to the pulse of time. Oehlen discusses his computer paintings with John Corbett, and follows up on his more recent work, his thoughts on art, and his day in the studio in a lengthy conversation with Alexander Klar. Together with a collection of shorter texts and statements, this brings us close to the ideas of an artist who has been dubbed “the most resourceful abstract painter alive.” Taschen.com p .
