Iconic Conversations

Can you conceive any similarity between the characters depicted in classic artworks and contemporary hip-hoppers? Cecilia Azcarate proves that a conversation between hip hop and art before the 16th century is not only possible, but somehow legitimate. Her comparative exercise relies mainly on body adornments such as tattoos and nose-rings, continuing with accessories such as medal pendants and fur collars. I find these connections smart, funny, creative, impressive – which is a 1st class salad!

White Light

White light, the V MAN editorial, shows once again that an all white outfit would be an excellent choice for menswear. Among my favorites: the Jil Sander jacket in the first pic and the Duckie Brown ensemble in the last one.
