WATCH: Skater’s Paradise: On/Off

Filmmaker Youri Fernandez turns his lens on the art of skateboarding in this monochromatic portrait of four boarders—including Fernandez himself—as they make Berlin their playground, soundtracked by a metronomic composition from electronic musician Petit Fantôme.

The film is part of the HOW MANY BPM? project in which skateboarders become human metronomes as they ride back and forth on a ramp. The project was founded in 2014 at the Parisian gallery l’Hermitage by both Fernandez—co-founder of Berlin-based skateboard brand and art collective FLVR—and visual artist Iouri Camicas, who invite various musicians to create a sound universe to accompany each of the performances.

The Billionaire Boys Club Fall 2017 Collection

We’re back with a Fall 2017 BBC Collection full of our beloved camo patterns and psychedelic 1960s inspiration.

Sticking to the staple BBC aesthetic, this collection features vibrant graphics and patterns on bright colored pieces. Along with camouflage prints, flannel is also seen within the capsule, as well as distressed denim. Dip dye technique is utilized for staple BBC logo tees along with color block cut and sew knit shirts. Within the new collection, various pieces are adorned with peace, love and unity symbols that were frequently used during the Hippie movement in the 60s.

The Hippie movement was a youth counterculture that emerged during the mid 1960s that essentially rejected the conventions of American mainstream life. The counterculture originated on the basis of the youth’s opposition to the U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War. Birthed on college campuses in San Francisco, the movement quickly spread to New York’s Greenwich Village, and later spread to other countries including Canada and Britain. Hippies felt alienated from middle-class society, which they saw as dominated by materialism and repression, and they developed their own distinctive lifestyle. Hippies advocated nonviolence and love, a popular phrase being “Make love, not war,” for which they were sometimes called “flower children.” They promoted openness and tolerance as alternatives to the restrictions and regimentation they saw in middle-class society. With this movement also came a new form of fashion, that allowed them to express their free-spirit mentality, including florals, peace and unity symbols, beads and sandals.

The Fall ’17 Collection will be available at the BBC NYC flagship and website on Friday, August 4th at 12 p.m.

A London Exhibition Will Showcase Anime Architecture

House of Illustration, a London-based gallery, will exhibit Japanese anime architecture artwork that has been seen in classic anime films, including Ghost in the Shell.

The exhibition—the first of its kind in the UK—features over 100 technical drawings and watercolor illustrations from some of the most influential productions in the genre’s 1990s heyday. The artists were tasked with creating a universe for the director. Their fictional worlds reflected real-life concerns over ruthless urban development and erosion of identity, mirroring the films’ narratives and giving the backgrounds a crucial role to play. Their work has had a defining influence on the style of anime we think of as typical today.

The show includes Hiromasa Ogura’s watercolour paintings for Ghost in the Shell, an anime epic that pioneered and influenced sci-fi works such as The Matrix and Avatar. Inspired by Asia’s emerging megacities and based on photographs of Hong Kong, Ogura’s work depicts the striking contrast between a derelict Chinese town and looming, faceless skyscrapers.

Takashi Watabe’s meticulously realistic style has become a hallmark of Japanese anime films as a whole. House of Illustration showcase his pencil drawings for 2008’s sequel Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence, as well as work from Patlabor: The Movie (1989) and Metropolis(2001), by Mamoru Oshii and Atsushi Takeuchi.
