A ROSE, COLD WATER AND A DANCE CHURCH
This week was already marked by our generation’s biggest data spill since WikiLeaks but there are still other things you can equally be here for, even after you’ve mopped up all that scorching Kardashian West tea. Wring, wring!
Martine Rose SS17
British menswear designer Martine Rose just dropped her SS17 look book so consider yourself #blessedt because she doesn’t follow the fashion calendar and only releases pieces when she’s good and ready. For next spring, Rose is focusing on snake hips, high-waisted oversized trousers – which she has been returning for many collections now – and reinterpreted football garb on chunky-heeled tassel loafers.
Major Lazer x Justin Bieber x MØ
2016 did many people wrong, but not us pop fiends. Even Britney laid it down last week. And ever since S interviewed Spice Girl manqué MØ, she has been steadily blowing up – possible correlations officially insinuated. This new Major Lazer track is all the better because of her. Welp, that’s my weekend gym bop sorted.
FKA Twigs Dance Church
Leading up to her show with Rye Rye and Blaqstarr in Maryland this week, FKA Twigs gave an amazing five-hour, free dance workshop in Baltimore from which people were selected to join her on stage. It wasn’t just an audition, the class was also designed to be a safe space intended to lift spirits. It looks like it was everything and I’m low-key stretching my toes right now in case there’s a repeat event somewhere closer to home. I’m no dancer but when FKA Twigs is giving literal life in front you, your boy might just end up in a split.
