Rhode by Hailey Bieber

If you admire Hailey Bieber’s skin, now you can have it with Rhode Beauty

Hailey Bieber has been working on a project for more than two years that she has kept secret, dropping only clues: we knew that it was a cosmetics and skin care business that it has baptized as ‘Rhode‘ and that it would see the light when it comes to summer. However, a few weeks ago, the exact date of its release was finally revealed: June 15! A piece of news has been accompanied by more details about this new beauty and cosmetic project.

She announced the news along with a photo album in which she appears posing with a donut in her hand and her skin looks super cared for, glowy, and hydrated. In the caption of the publication, she wrote rhodeskin.com, the official website to which you can subscribe if you want to be aware of all the details of her cosmetics brand.

As a big fan of skincare, Hailey has been asked by her followers for several years about her daily routine and the products she uses, so she created her own signature naturally. 

Some of the details that Hailey reveals to her followers about ‘Rhode’ are the following:

  • Affordable prices that will not exceed 30 dollars: This is what the model wanted to reveal in an interview with the media. For achieving the goal of finding the powerful formulas suitable for most pockets,  Hailey has been testing different textures for months, asking advice from dermatology experts such as Charlotte Palermino or Hyram Yarbro, who, like Hailey, share the purpose of more accessible cosmetics made with natural products.
  • What products are sold in Rhode? We can find moisturizing textures, mainly focused on the face. A few days ago, Hailey shared the following products with her followers: a serum ‘that visibly plumps and hydrates to support a healthy skin barrier’, A moisturizing mist ‘to comfort, soothe, and restore the skin barrier’, and finally, a restorative lip treatment ‘for naturally plump, pillowy-soft lips — day or night’, and to protect and nourish dry skin from within.
  • Rhode futures foundation: Rhode Futures Foundation is supporting and investing in 1,000 women and their families by 2023. The brand partners with three organizations providing women, especially women of color, with the necessary resources to direct their own futures: Black Mamas Matter Alliance, Accion Opportunity Fund, and the LIFT Family Goal Fund. Hailey’s cosmetics firm has pledged a minimum of 1% of sales to support her efforts and all women they serve, ‘including non-binary, trans, non-cis, and all women-identified persons’. 

as Rhode states, there are three fundamental pillars:

  • ‘Give women access to a wide variety of health services for full autonomy over their bodies to make empowered choices.
  • ‘Invest in resources for moms that alleviate financial stress as they raise and support their families. 
  • ‘Provide access to capital and coaching for women-owned businesses.

Edmond Huot Interview

The market of airline liveries is ever-growing and is a topic that has captivated the modern design world. What exactly is airline livery, and what do their designers do?

Well, we sat down with Edmond Huot, a Creative Director and Airline Livery Designer, to answer all our burning questions about his work field. Huot’s latest project was with Northern Pacific Airways, designing their brand-new livery in San Bernardino.

Let’s hear from Huot on his creativity, and how he got into such a niche workspace.

Q: How do you find inspiration as a creative director?

A: Being in the business for more than thirty years exposes you to a lot. I remain curious and open to the world—traveling, meeting people, and always framing and curating my experiences.

Growing up on a rural farm in Canada, devoid of cable TV and city-living, I was extremely bored and, hence, was forced to use my imagination. As an early av-geek and disaster movie fan, I would lose myself in thought—creating entire story plots and visual scenes with model airplanes that I’d build, play with outside, and ultimately crash in some snow bank! I spent countless hours drawing planes on discarded paper bags and would act out scenes from Arthur Hailey’s Airport in my bedroom.

For me, creativity started with storytelling and creating entire fantasy worlds in my head. Years later, my talent for drawing and sense of theatrics led me to advertising, where those same core passions drive my professional pursuits to this day.

Q: Tell us your favorite part about having a career in such a creative filed.

A: Beyond the initial conceptual phase, where my team and I get to stretch our imaginations and aspirations, there’s nothing—and I mean NOTHING—that compares to walking into an aircraft hangar to see (for the first time) my design applied to a 137,000lb 155 ft long Boeing 757-200 series. The sheer scale of this aircraft in all of its aerodynamic and technological beauty is beyond extraordinary. It’s truly life-affirming!

Q: Can you explain exactly what an airline livery is?

A: A livery is synonymous with a ‘uniform.’ An airplane’s livery refers to the painted decal on the exterior of the plane. A plane wears a uniform the same way a chef or a doorman wears a uniform.

Folks within the aviation and travel industry are fascinated with plane liveries because not only a feat to paint such a large canvas but liveries are only changed once every 10-15 years.

Q: Did you encounter struggles while working on the Northern Pacific Airway livery?

A: A hurdle early on for me was understanding who the customer would be. Unlike larger, full-service multinational firms with the ability to cover more ground in terms of research and analysis, our agency is a smaller, more boutique company. We had to move fast, be resourceful, and quickly prioritize the core issues.

I worked closely with the client to better understand Asian cultural significance and hot points. At the same time, I was also speaking with the local team in Anchorage to highlight any concerns around misrepresenting their local indigenous communities.

Additionally, I developed a range of target profiling decks broken down into general categories such as leisure, business, and regulatory audiences. From there, I weaved all of those gathered quantitative insights into more contextualized thematic storytelling that gave a greater, more compelling meaning and purpose to the customer.

I titled the story: “We Are All Navigators.” So much of the subsequent design, including colors, typography, and positioning came from these valuable insights. By turning those data points into a greater story, I was able to elevate the brand in a more consumer-centric manner.

Another challenge that is often faced by start-up airlines involves maximizing relatively small resources. How do I make the most out of a budget? Both the investors as well as the operators are extremely sensitive to how we go about spending time and money. You’ve got to get it right the first time.

Q: What was the best part about creating for North Pacific Airways?

A: Northern Pacific will be the first airline that I fly on featuring my work. And for the record, when I say ‘my work,’ I really mean my team’s work. I could never do this without the help and dedication of some truly talented and inspired individuals. That is what’s really worth bragging about!

Q: What can we expect from Edmond Huot in the future?

A: I am looking forward to showcasing some new project work for another start-up airline based in Canada. Unfortunately, because of its sensitive nature, I can’t share any details at this point. I also want to expand my creative and design repertoire with travel and transportation-related assignments including private jet travel and environmental design application.

WALLIE THE SENSEI – GOLDEN CHILD

COMPTON’S WALLIE THE SENSEI IS POETIC & RIVETING ON “GOLDEN CHILD” AND “BOMPTON 2 BALABASAS” ACOUSTIC STREET PERFORMANCE

Vulnerable, raw and untamed perfectly describe Compton native Wallie The Sensei, who’s latest musical effort “Golden Child” is out today. The 17-track mixtape which includes his breakout single “Scandalous” is heavily influenced by Wallie’s California roots and sonically redefines the legendary west coast sound. “Bompton 2 Balabasas” Acoustic Street performance here.

From start to finish, Wallie takes his listeners on a journey through his hometown of Compton where he speaks on his struggle to survive the cutthroat streets while always in pursuit of money, success and all the sweet things life has to offer. Make no mistake, Golden Child isn’t a story of tragedy, but a story of triumph, hustle and ultimately defeating a system designed for Wallie to fail.

Golden Child comes on the heels of Wallie’s “03 Flow” single which currently has over half a million views and over 1.5 million US streams. A true labor of love, 03 Flow pays homage to Watts native and fellow recording artist 03 Greedo who is currently serving a 20-year prison sentence. 03 Flow has quickly become a fan favorite, taking on a life on its own with radio support, consistent increase in streams and critical praises from music peers like PnB Rock, industry heavyweights, radio DJs & more. On the record Wallie passionately sings “niggas playing like they demons, they don’t really mean it, choppa spray like we cleanin, bodies dropping on that cement” Wallie’s passion is intently felt on the song and has become the heart of the Golden Child project.

Golden Child also includes Wallie’s team-up with Detroit powerhouse 42 Dugg on the enthralling remix of Wallie’s own hit single “Scandalous.” The two trade bars with ease and confidence, as Wallie offers up some of his most lucid lines, recounting the struggles of success and the haters who would come for his head. Additional stand out tracks include “Lamb,” the lush throwback finds Wallie effortlessly singing over a buttery beat, showcasing his one-of-a-kind flow and knack for incisive lyrics about his come-up. “B*tch, nobody had it in my fam, I put my foot down,” he sings. “Put my other foot down like I could drive this car, let the motherf***kin hood down.” In Lamb, Wallie walks recollects his life’s trajectory beginning with his time on the streets, his narratives are poetic and detailed, rivaling rap’s most vivid writers.

Since the release of Wallie the Sensei’s No Love EP at the beginning of 2020, he’s quickly become a West Coast artist to watch. Respect magazine praised the “Scandalous” video for showcasing Compton’s “camaraderie, hustle, and rawness,” while Rosecrans Ave highlighted Wallie’s storytelling abilities, saying he is “providing guidance to those who come after” with his pain-stricken tales. After the hit of the “Scandalous” remix, Wallie the Sensei’s proved that his skyrocketing success is no fluke. Golden Child is poised to reach even more open-minded listeners. It’s full of anthems for hustling Cali natives and anyone who craves a little bit of glow-up magic.

Carol Ades – I Can’t Wait to be British

CAROL ADES MAKES HER LANDMARK DEBUT WITH I CAN’T WAIT TO BE BRITISH, GLOBALLY SUCCESSFUL SINGER-SONGWRITER RECLAIMS PERSONAL ARTISTRY WITH POWERFUL NEW ANTHEM, DEBUT EP DUE LATER THIS YEAR

Globally successful singer-songwriter Carol Ades is proud to announce today’s premiere of her landmark debut single. I Can’t Wait to be British is available now at all DSPs and streaming services.

LISTEN TO I CAN’T WAIT TO BE BRITISH

I Can’t Wait to be British marks a powerful reclamation of personal artistry from Carol Ades (pronounced ahh-dis), formerly known best as acclaimed singer and songwriter Caroline Pennell. The optimistic anthem heralds Ades’ upcoming debut EP, due later this year.

It’s really just about feeling out of control and half joking / half genuinely hoping I would find that control if I moved to London and had a totally different life, says Carol Ades. It’s sort of self-aware escapism! The structure is so chaotic to represent my train of thought surrounding my feelings. It doesn’t really make any sense but at the same time it adds up in some weird way? It’s a very very very true reflection of my brain and the thoughts I fight off on a daily basis. And I also genuinely think I was meant to be a British woman!!!

Emotions make a mess. It’s not the kind of mess you can just shove under the bed either. Carol Ades isn’t here to help you scrub out the mess until you can’t see it anymore. Instead, she’s here to help you celebrate it, learn something from it, and move on confidently because of it. The New Jersey-born and Los Angeles-based artist, singer, and songwriter wants to empower you, but she’s going to keep it real too. Carol dedicated her whole life to music and even had a few brushes with major success on stage and behind-the-scenes. Following a bad breakup, she turned inward and wasn’t afraid to get raw in 2018. Under the influence of everything from the series Fleabag, Greta Gerwig, Elizabeth Gilbert, and Glennon Doyle to Japanese House, MUNA, and Phoebe Bridgers, she began to write her own coming of age story. Ironically, the first song of this phase ended up in the hands of two other artists, becoming Past Life for Trevor Daniel and Selena Gomez. With the onset of quarantine, she wrote for herself at a prolific pace, making emotional lyric-driven songs you can scream to or sob to in your car. The first of which is her debut single I Can’t Wait to be British. You’ll find she’s a lot like the friend who lets you cry on her shoulder, but still tells it like it is when you need to hear it the most, holding your hand through the mess with timeless music of her own.

My best friends call me Carol, she says. It feels a bit grandma-ish, which I love. I feel like I’m a 60-year-old in a 25-year-old’s body. Ades is my middle name and makes me feel so close to who I was as a kid. I didn’t make up a new name, since the music is so personal. Carol Ades feels like the ‘wiser voice’ in the back of my head who helps me solve problems. So many songs poured out of me over the last year as a direct result of processing change. Now feels like the right time to put out into the world.

Leading off with the breathy wit and intimacy of I Can’t Wait to be British, Ades’ upcoming debut EP will showcase her evolving imagination with raw and real anthems as undeniable as they are unapologetic, emotional lyric-driven songs you can scream to or sob to in your car.

I want fans to listen to these songs and feel like, ‘Oh shit, I really needed to hear that’ or ‘That’s what I was feeling this morning, but I couldn’t figure out the words to describe it’, Carol Ades says. I’m going to keep building a world around a community of people who feel like me and want to help each other through hard things.

Michael Krebber – Studiofloor and Diamond Paintings

From 29th May 2021 to 8th January 2022, the Antonio Dalle Nogare Foundation presents Michael Krebber’s first solo exhibition in Italy, entitled Studiofloor and Diamond Paintings. Find more information here

Michael Krebber (b. Cologne, 1954) is an internationally acclaimed artist and a figure central to the German art scene between the 1980s and ‘90s. Over the years he has become a reference point for a generation of younger artists, thanks to his constant and attentive focus on questioning the conventions and limits of the medium of painting, which he sees as a space for dialogue and a cross-genre hotbed, rather than something focused on the production of an object. 

For decades, Krebber’s art has been distinguished by a conceptual approach to painting, based on the conviction that it is impossible to invent anything new in art, as everything has already been invented. Rather than inventing something new, Krebber’s minimal and apparently unresolved interventions present the viewer with canvases that are open and full of possibilities. Like an unfinished sentence, his works leave the viewer free to imagine what might happen. 

The painting is viewed by the artist almost as a performance. It has been defined as a system of hesitations in which opposing forces simultaneously motivate and block one another, an approach that expands painting beyond the conventional notion of the artwork as an object. 

Krebber’s incomplete aesthetic, however, is not the result of an attempt to sabotage the medium, but stems rather from an explicit desire to extend dialogue beyond the canvas and space traditionally attributed to painting. This intention emerges clearly in the two series displayed in the exhibition.  

The series entitled studiofloor MK/P MK19/087/1-8 (2000), was presented with an enigmatic image on the cover of Artforum in 2005. In an exhibition staged several years ago, Krebber asked collectors to loan a series of his own paintings that he laid out on large tables in the centre of the room. Turning the common notion of display on its head, the walls – on which the paintings would normally have hung – were left empty and covered with large masonite panels from the artist’s floor, cut and positioned on the wall like paintings.

The second series displayed in the exhibition also replaces traditional painting techniques with a readymade approach.

In the fourteen Diamond Painting (2003) canvases, Krebber systematically demystifies, as the title of the series suggests, the centrality of subject and technique in painting by proposing a space that is open to suspension and incompleteness. So, store- purchased fabrics, decorated with pre-printed patterns, replace the traditional canvas, and become the surface on which Krebber paints simple geometrical white diamond shapes. As often happens in his work, the reference to influential German artists, in this case that have used fabric, like Rosemarie Trockel and Sigmar Polke, reveals his profound knowledge of art history and contemporary painting. La

The exhibition is staged in collaboration with Greene Naftali, New York.

The Boston-born and Atlanta-based rapper flows with the intensity of an open wound as he tightly grips each melody. Streamed nearly four million times on Soundcloud, Reign built an avid fan base with one independent anthem after another including Money Talk, Fly, and No Love plus tastemaker praise from Lyrical Lemonade and Elevator Magazine.
