April 77: F/W 10-11 Denim Collection

FW 10-11 collection sounds like a return to basics for APRIL77. Whispered by a mysterical runic text, the collection takes place somewhere between the nordic mythology and the occult folklore. Washes - raw black denim, used black denim, raw blue - are references to Nature, authentic and uncontrollable : rubb your jean on a tree bank and you will get the Stomp, polish your black coated denim and you will have the Warsaw, or find the Gene, a homemade rinsed indigo. Joey and Dictator, the 2 cults jeans of APRIL77, remain in this new collection, and the new hit comes with the Ride, a tappered fit. And for the very first time, APRIL77 adapts its basics to women, the waist band becoming perfectly shaped for women's hips. The famous androgynous Joey becomes Joey Lady, while a new style, the Jett, comes in a feu-de-plancher extra skinny fit.

The Runic alphabet, graphic thread, set up the mystical genesis of this FW 10-11 collection.

When it comes to innovative retailing, London never disappoints. Launching online in late August, LN-CC is the culmination of ideas that have been incubating between John Skelton and Dan Mitchell in recent years. Skelton has considerable pedigree as a premium level buyer for oki-ni and Harrods. Mitchell is equally recognised for his discerning musical taste through his Bad Passion club nights. Together they have put together an appealing menu of options.

LN-CC isn't so much a retail site but more an evolving platform of curated ideas encompassing clothing, music and art. Cutting edge labels, such as Rick Owens and Damir Doma are positioned next to obscure Japanese labels.

They have enlisted art book specialist, Conor Donlon to edit his sizeable collection for LN-CC. A dedicated sound system is being installed by legendary sound engineer, Mickey Boyle and will be used to host private events with visiting DJs.

And an art space is also underway for exhibitions - anything from photography to tattoo work. As Skelton declares, 'It's not about the products themselves, but how they relate to our house style.' Soon after the website is operational, a physical space - designed by Gary Card - will open, initially on an appointments basis.

Slayer - The Vinyl Conflict

For the first time in its near-30 year history, Slayer, the single most distinctive and radical thrash metal band ever, will see its ten American Recordings albums released as a limited-edition, high-end, box set - The Vinyl Conflict. Ten albums on 11 discs, The Vinyl Conflict will feature the band's entire Def/American Recordings catalogue: Reign In Blood (1986), South of Heaven (1988), Seasons In The Abyss (1990), the double-record Live Decade of Aggression(1991), Divine Intervention (1994), Undisputed Attitude (1998), God Hates Us All (2001), Christ Illusion (2006), and World Painted Blood (2009). The Vinyl Conflict will be released on October 12, 2010.

American/Sony Legacy invested a great amount of care into making The Vinyl Conflict, treating the albums the way they would treat a great jazz, classical, Bob Dylan or Miles Davis record, something that isn't normally done for metal records. All ten albums have been re-mastered from the original analog flat master tapes and were pressed on the highest quality, 180-gram audiophile vinyl at RTI, the most-respected pressing plant in the U.S. and among the best in the world. Lacquers were cut and re-cut several times to ensure the highest sound quality. The individual vinyl discs will come in a standard, clear inner sleeve to preserve the vinyl, are then housed in high-quality litho-wrapped jackets, and then boxed in a hardcover slipcase. Additionally, reproductions of the original LP inner sleeve artwork were converted to 12X12 inserts.

Purity of Form

Purity of Form. The agenda of what form portrays philosophically and practice. Structured in 2001, by two graphic designers with an attempt to study and experiment architecture by developing into a fashion brand. The concept and idea of this brand's strength comes in relation with science, occult, math, space, geometry and everything in between. Form conveys the product of wearable art for individuals who are experimental with their unique sense of style defined by quality fabrics, beautiful fabrication, pristine detailing and minimal prints. See the entire collection here.
