Teenage Angst Personified. Pt. 1


 group3
R+Co Global artist Jason Hall, presents his latest collection Teenage Angst, as part of his 2016 campaign, in this release.  More engaging than the photos themselves, are the captions on to bottom of the polaroids.  They truly do represent some of the thoughts and feelings of teenagers in the modern day.

For those wondering about kit used for this shoot, the stills were shot on a Canon EOS 5d iii, EF85mm f/1.2L II USM lens, shooting between f/1.2 & f/1.6, constant light, using Bowens and Westcott lighting.  Post production color grading was done in Adobe Photoshop, matching colours to that of a Kodak E100G-Cool slide film type.

Los Angeles based beauty photographer Julia Kuzmenko McKim has an incredible portfolio of diverse styles and designs, but her collaboration with make up goliath Vlada Haggerty titled “Stripes & Polka Dots” hits the spot.  Featuring models Eugena Washington and Ekaterina Koba, both the styles of make up and photography are remarkable.

Lip Licking Good.

Rainbows, honeycombs, pixels and even famous Japanese works of art — there’s almost nothing Canadian makeup artist Andrea Reed can’t recreate using a few brushes and a variety of lipsticks.  Going by the name Girl Grey Beauty, Reed is known for sharing drool-worthy lip art creations as well as handy beauty tutorials. It’s painful to admit, but her works really made us realize we have no game whatsoever when it comes to primpin’.  Reed, among other incredible makeup gurus, really pushes the limits of modern art, showing that it no longer belongs solely in galleries and museums, but can be found in the most unexpected places, even a human face.

Have You Ever Seen A Black Badger.


HMX_BB_Top_Night-trio_Hres_CMYK

The press release for the Black Badger says the watch features “three-dimensional objects” milled from “solid light.” The science geek in me recoils at such phrasing but nevertheless, I was curious and keen to learn what alchemical tricks James Thompson the watch’s creator had used to transform his rage into solid light. Check the method.

The HYT Skull Bad Boy.


HYT-SkullBadBoy-front

Death. Power. Celebration. The skull is associated with numerous themes, and HYT has used it to great effect in its namesake collection. The Skull watch was first released in two references with red and green liquids, each sporting matching eyes of the corresponding color and resembling a different comic book character. The Skull Maori came next, and had detailing that evoked traditional Maori tribal tattoos. For its latest creation, the Skull Bad Boy, HYT has ventured into the rebellious, grittier subcultures of biking and hard rock.  The most striking aspect of the new release is its fluid module’s black liquid, which had taken the brand over a year to develop.

HYT-SkullBadBoy-Back

It’s worth noting that every new color used in the brand’s fluid modules is an individual “product” whose hue is just one aspect that must be engineered – the liquid must also maintain a defined meniscus within the glass tube, repel itself from the tube’s inner walls instead of sticking to it, have a suitable viscosity and thermal coefficient, and finally be UV resistant.  Chemistry aside, black also represents an entirely new shade for the brand, whose past developments have been confined to bright, almost fluorescent liquids. The new liquid is a perfect fit for the Skull Bad Boy’s monochromic color scheme, which includes a black DLC-coated titanium case and slate grey leather strap. The watch’s overall look is sinister, and fully deserving of its name. The general lack of vibrancy doesn’t translate into a lack of details though. Note how the grey hour indexes on the flange support the theme with their Gothic typeface, and the dial’s Clous de Paris pattern that resembles a leather cuff’s studs.
