Chanel's Swans

I think Karl Lagerfeld saw the swans coming as he showcased his own legion of both black and white swans at Chanel Spring/Summer 2011.

The Black Lips and... Mark Ronson?

Though they have never had the help of a producer before, The Black Lips decided to do something new when recording their new album (this will be their 6th studio album). They made a list of producers they would like to work with and funnily enough, Mark Ronson was one of them (Other producers they wanted to work with included Jack White, Danger Mouse and Dr.Dre). They said his work with Amy Winehouse was "totally dope" and that he would get "the old school way of recording" and the vintage feel they create with their music. He was available, and so he has worked with them on their upcoming album; which I am looking forward to hearing. I didn't think in a million years that this combination would work but according to the video VBS tv made while following their journey, it has worked out to be quite a worthwhile marriage of musical minds.

Erik Foss' Word.

Vice email me some pretty good stuff to blog about but this I think is pure excellence. Erik Foss is a New York based artist who has created his own font, if you will, created entirely out of strategically and some-what precariously positioned clippings from vintage porn. The best part is, you can get "W", "O", "R" and "D" (spelling the name of the project) on tee-shirts. I Haven't seen an "M" but if "W" is anything to go by...

I need this on my chest. Nothing beats a bit of old fashioned porn on a controversial tee-shirt.

Check out Vice's chat with Erik here.
