Inspired by… Arcade Fire Reflektor Tapes

By October 16, 2015 DIY & Lifestyle

So I decided for today I wanted to move away from my normal style of content and try something new. After watching Arcade Fire’s “Reflektor Tapes” film by Kahlil Joseph at the cinema, I came away quite inspired by the art that they produce. I’m no major fan, but after being introduced to the band by my brother, they have always intrigued me and the film definitely got me interested even more… (Images via Tumblr – Scroll for sources)

For me the part that inspires me the most is the whole aesthetic (of Reflektor). In an exclusive ‘after-credits interview’, Win Butler even stated that it was the first time that they really focused on the whole spectrum of a tour in terms of how it looked and in my opinion it looked pretty darn awesome. There’s something so inspiring to me when art is so in sync and so purposefully put together, but it still somehow shows a story with it’s different elements.

As I said in this post’s intro, this is a different sort of topic for me but it can definitely merge into fashion in terms of costume and set design, and actually, even the music itself. It’s probably quite a personal thing as I am a bit reluctant to shiny things (I wore holographic shoes to the cinema), but I just have to express my thoughts down in… typing?

One of my favourite elements of Reflektor is Arcade Fire’s “Mirror Man”, who actually was created by Gustav Troger who works with glass and mirror as his main material and I definitely want to look more into his work. I genuinely want to cover my Dr Martens in broken shards of mirror and become my own version of the ‘living sculpture’. And if you go into detail of the actual Reflektor album, you’ll soon understand it’s importance.

Have you seen the “Reflektor Tapes”? Are you a fan of Arcade Fire? Did you like this style of post? Let me know!

Fashion Week Catwalk Music | Playlist

By February 21, 2015 London Fashion Blog Week

catwalk music london fashion week playlist

One thing which I love about LFW (and fashion weeks in general) is the catwalk music. I love all the different beats and rhythms that are used to really enhance the mood of each collection, so I thought today I would put together a little playlist for you to listen too. I think it’s really cool to see what music is merged together and sometimes you can discover some awesome artists….catwalk music london fashion week playlist

Catwalk & Fashion Week Music by Tolly Dolly Posh on Grooveshark

I don’t know about you, but music which is used for catwalks and fashion shows always has something so special about it. It’s the way the music all glides together so perfectly, and the beat in the background which moves exactly in time with the feet of the models. I just love it. I love the feeling it gives me, it’s just something special and I know that may sound weird, but you have a listen. Close your eyes and imagine a flurry of texture and colour, drifting effortlessly down the catwalk.

In this mix of songs, I think my favourites include Wuthering Heights (Kate Bush), Sunset (The XX) and Go Slow (HAIM)They’re all really cool songs, with totally different vibes. I think it’s interesting to imagine some form of collection going along with them… so why not tell me what type of collection would go along with each song? Or maybe you have another song in mind? Just let me know in the comments 🙂

…for those of you interested, my next ‘London Fashion Blog Week’ post, is beauty related *shout from the hill tops*
