PLAY THIS EXCLUSIVE ANTWERP FASHION DEPARTMENT SHOW2017 SOUNDTRACK

Posted on June 6th, by legrandfromage in magazine, mixtape, music, style. No Comments

This weekend, we got to witness a piece of fashion history as the biggest group of masters ever graduated from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts – Antwerp Fashion Department.

I warned our London visitor beforehand: “SHOW2017 won’t be what you are used to seeing during fashion month. This is a full 4(!) hours of looks.”

To be quite honest, even I, who had interviewed all 18 graduating masters for the Magazine (more on where to get your copy soon), was a bit worried about the sheer volume of work we were about to be presented with. But although I have no clue how Walter Van Beirendonck and his team pull it off and at the end I felt like I had been slapped around by the ghosts of couture past, present and future, the quality was high, time flew by and it was a pleasure watching the creations of both bachelors and masters.

* FANGIRL SCREECH * That’s how Soundcloud user ‘Paradoxian Demon’ welcomed the drop of a new half-hour mixtape created by Noodle of Gorillaz. I gladly join in the canon of screams, because it’s pretty perfect. Noodle stated finding a bunch of ‘kick-ass women who in their own individual ways are true pioneers in the writing, production and creation of music’ while she was looking for new sounds and inspiration. The tape features a seamless blend of Bulgarian choral music and gems like ‘Szechuan’ by Fatima Al Qadiri with the 1960s theme tune to Doctor Who.

Gorillaz are slated to release a new album in 2017 which would be their first in 7 years. Vic Mensa and De La Soul should be featured in some capacity so it’s safe to say we’ll be shook like 2-D when that day comes.
