RVCA x Jade Klara.

RVCA teamed up with one of Cape Town’s most talented illustrators to create the limited edition ‘The Storm Passes’ rain umbrella. They dropped in on Jade Klara in her studio at The Woodstock Exchange, ‘Only Today’, for a few words about what went into the umbrella concept. She talks about overcoming childhood fears by giving creatures silly personalities and normalising the big and the bad. Check out more from Jade Klara here.

Without trying to pun about it being Friday, and The Weeknd dropping a new video, here are the visuals for Abel Tesfaye’s ‘King of the Fall’. It’s got everything you’d expect from a The Weeknd video – girls, more girls, and girls making out.

adidas Originals by Rita Ora FW14 Pastel/Colour Block Packs.

adidas Originals and Rita Ora have continued their collaboration this season with the drop of two more collections; the Pastel Pack and the Colour Block Pack, after recently releasing the initial Black Pack. The Rita Ora Pastel Pack takes to the skies: dreaming sunset shades of powder pinks, blues and yellows that are cloud soft across talon-sharp shapes. A riot of feathers inspired by Rita’s own tattoo, rustle around cut out shoulders and hips, bringing flight to batwing sleeves, skin tight body suits and high waist skinny-fit shorts. Sheer detailing softens brave silhouettes that reveal hints of skin as they... Read more

New Music Video. Grimes – Go ft. Blood Diamonds.

Grimes just released her self-directed video for ‘Go’, a collaborative track originally wrote for Rihanna. The video is very much Grimes being Grimes, drawing on a little bit of a Games of Thrones obsession. Boucher co-directed the video with her brother Mac under the alias Roco-Prime: ‘It’s our take on Dante’s inferno. The circles of hell reflect more contemporary issues though. We shot a bunch at the salton sea which is basically an apocalyptic wasteland filled with dead fish because of human carelessness, the bullet hole hallway a la korn freak on a leash etc etc. If you look closely...

Interview with PARA ONE.

After an incredible set at Untamed Youth on Tuesday, we had a few quick words with French electro-wizard Para One about his impressions of South Africa and what to expect at Grietfest this weekend: What brings you to SA? I am here to record music for a new project of mine. I’m travelling around at the moment and working with musicians in different places. I came here because I was interested in South African gospel. The Red Bull studios offered to hold a few sessions in Cape Town, so here I am! I came to visit SA more than ten... Read more

New Music Video. Okmalumkoolkat – Allblackblackkat.

After premiering his Gregor Lehrl-directed ‘iJusi’ video just last week, Okmalumkoolkat has dropped visuals to accompany ‘Allblackblackkat’, directed by the prolific Chris Saunders and shot by Adriaan Louw. Premiered on The Fader, the video’s a surreal interpretation of a Zulu cleansing ceremony performed on a male member of the family before funerals, a ritual which Okmalumkoolkat experienced as a child. It ‘plays with memory, reality and generational shifts’, creating a nightmarish experience that you won’t forget: Read more
