Right in the middle of the week, we assemble and (of course) share several news that are on our minds and keep us on our toes.
ON FRÄULEIN´S MIND
FILIPPA K- SWIM CAPSULE
Swedish fashion house Filippa K is ushering in a new era under recently appointed Creative Director Liisa Kessler. Her debut campaign introduces a classic swimwear collection that pays homage to the Swedish tradition of ice bathing. Shot on the bare, frozen tundra of northern Sweden, the human form is juxtaposed with the beauty of the landscape to celebrate our authentic connection to nature — and to each other. The collection is a nod to the minimalist swimsuits of the ’90s, with understated, sensual silhouettes. The choice of materials follows Filippa K‘s philosophy of sustainability. Each fabric is made from existing upcycled and recycled textiles to avoid new production.
SINEAD O’BRIEN- MULTITUDE RELEASE
Irish artist Sinead O’Brien today releases the brand new track “Multitudes” from her debut album “Time Bend and Break The Bower“, out June 10th via Chess Club Records. O’Brien has always evoked powerful worlds by combining words, music and images. But none were as powerful or as haunting as they were on their debut album. In the space that exists between her delivery – which is simultaneously wry, silky, vicious and confident – and the music – a dynamic, dancing call-and-response from her collaborators, guitarist Julian Hanson and drummer Oscar Robertson a productive tension. Using a method based on instinct and in constant exchange with multi-sensory impulses, O’Brien carves a place as a musical oracle for an ever-changing time.
