Folk x Goss Collaboration

Posted on 9:00 pm

by Keanu Adorable British brand Folk have collaborated with the ever so talented Goss Brothers, no not Matt and Luke tut, on a capsule collection and gallery pop-up shop. The menswear collection fuses art, fashion and literature in a collaboration with the artists Nick and Phil Goss. The collection of around 20 pieces is the result of an ongoing exploration of the J.G.Ballard novel, The Drowned World. This dystopian sci-fi book creates a vision of the future where the ice caps have melted and the planet is burning up. London is unfortunately submerged under water, a nightmarish, stinking tropical swamp where alligators and strange prehistoric reptiles are unleashed and pelicans squawk in the angry red sky. It?s a work of fiction, at the moment,  but for the artists, it strikes a very raw nerve. The collaboration is the result of a chance meeting between Folk?s founder Cathal Mcateer and Nick Goss in the brand?s Soho store. ?Nick was wearing my favourite Folk jacket,? recalls Mcateer. They got chatting and realised they shared a mutual admiration for each other?s work. Mcateer had seen Nick?s work in the Josh Lilley Gallery and connected with his paintings. ?A lot of the way I make paintings is really material based,? says Nick Goss who experiments with the fabric quality of the canvas, using fabric dye to create otherworldly landscapes. ?I tend to use lots of linens and fabrics and stain them and I?m really drawn to natural indigos, bright yellow ? real Folk colours. It?s probably why I was drawn to Folk in the first place.? It is a meeting of minds and aesthetics.For their first fashion collaboration, the brothers took The Drowned World as their inspiration. It taps into the current feeling of unease and instability in the world, politically and environmentally. RCA graduate Phil Goss has a more illustrative quality to his work and his drawings ? flamingos, reptiles and zig zags of water ? add a surreal quality to Nick?s more painterly radioactive sunsets and watery reflections.?The Drowned World lets you into this crazy other world of hyper intense imagery and atmosphere,? says Phil Goss. The resulting collection is a bold and graphic taste of the novel itself, transposed eloquently onto limited edition T-shirts, shorts, summer shirts and sweatshirts. This is wearable art. A pop-up shop on London?s Redchurch Street will fuse gallery and retail space to show the clothing against a backdrop of the Goss Brothers? paintings and drawings. ?More now than ever, people want to connect what?s going on in the world with what they are wearing,? says Cathal Mcateer. ?Our safe world of London is being disrupted more than we have ever experienced it. I feel confident doing this collaboration with the Goss Brothers. It feels right. It?s about the garment and the art. I?m looking forward to these different elements coming together.? Folk x Goss Brothers pop up shop will be open from July 6th. 11am- 7pm  shop the collection online at www.folkclothing.com anthonymcgrath405 Info Source and...

?It looked like Valtteri jumped the start?: Austrian GP race team radio highlights | 2017 Austrian Grand Prix

Posted on 9:05 am

Sebastian Vettel wasn?t the only driver who was suspicious about how quickly Valtteri Bottas got away in the Austrian Grand Prix. Daniel Ricciardo also suggested the pole sitter had jumped the start. Here are the team radio highlights from Sunday?s race. Although race control advised the teams they faced a ?60% chance? of rain during the race, none materialised. To Ericsson: ?12 minutes to go. Still no rain clouds visible on the radar.? 2017 Austrian Grand Prix in picturesA first-corner collision triggered by Daniil Kvyat wiped out Max Verstappen and Fernando Alonso. ?Fernando any damage??Alonso: ?Yeah, a lot, a lot of damage. I don?t know why they pushed me so much.? Meanwhile Valtteri Bottas?s pursuers raised questions about his remarkable getaway. Ricciardo: ?I?m sure it?s alright but it looked like Valtteri jumped the start.??OK we?ll pass it on.? ?Kimi is 4.2 behind Ricciardo.?Vettel: ?Any update on his jump start?? To Perez: ?Tyres are good. Hamilton on super-soft struggling with rears.? To Hamilton: ?Front-left brake is climbing. Do what you can do to keep it cool.? Go ad-free for just £1 per month >> Find out more and sign up Kimi Raikkonen came under pressure from Hamilton but wasn?t happy about how the lapped drivers were conducting themselves. Raikkonen: ?Not any more [censored by FOM] difficult place he might let me past, middle of the braking.??Copy. Very bad.? To Raikkonen: ?OBR is available again if you need it. Overall pace is good Kimi.? Mercedes eventually decided to pit Hamilton and Ferrari found themselves unable to protect Raikkonen?s position. Hamilton: ?I?ve got to get by, guys.??Brakes are good. Box, box, do the opposite to Raikkonen.? ?And confirm boxing this lap Kimi.?Raikkonen: ?OK.??Stay out. Lap mode race. Hamilton would be close so we decided to stay out.? Raikkonen: ?I can?t take this one. If it?s a solid blue he needs to [censored by FOM] move out of the way.? Hamilton: ?The rear end doesn?t feel good.??Last stint balance looked like it came together.?Hamilton: ?Got far too much front wing? At first Hamilton made little progress gaining on Ricciardo, but that soon changed. To Ricciardo: ?Hamilton behind 8.9. He?s not quick.? Hamilton: ?Is everything OK? Am I being investigated???Negative, that?s for Vandoorne. Raikkonen is not a threat at the moment.? ?Doing a really good job there Valtteri. Just keep us informed on tyres.?Bottas: ?Yeah there?s not much left in the tyre.? To Bottas: ?Kimi has not stopped yet. Don?t need to take any risk with him. Vettel is three seconds behind.? Hamilton: ?Is it getting windier??Wind picking up a little bit in strength, just a couple of KPH. Keep something in the bag for later.? An unimpressed Carlos Sainz Jnr retired after struggling with power unit problems from the start. Sainz: ?What a glorious race.??Sorry for that. Nothing much to add, quite frustrating. Despite the problem you did good.? Hamilton continued to indicate he was dissatisfied with his car, but from lap 53 he increased his pace and was quicker than Ricciardo more often than not. To Raikkonen: ?Hamilton 8.9 in free air, he?s seemingly degging off on his qualis. Good lap Kimi, half a second quicker than Hamilton.? Hamilton: ?We?re struggling out here.??Copy. We?ll have a look at options.? To Ricciardo: ?Hamilton still isn?t quick. He can do 8.4s. Still four seconds...

Gardening Round-up: Is your garden summer ready?

Posted on 5:00 am

Photo credit: Pinkyone, Shutterstock We have had a fair bit of warm weather over the past month, I can tell because the garden has gone crazy! The grass is needing mowing much more frequently, and the weeds grow before my very eyes, our tomato and chilli plants are growing nicely, although the beans and peas are struggling with the slugs and snails. In this weather I struggle to know exactly how much water to give the garden and the plants, not wanting to drown them, but also not leaving them too thirsty, so if you are like me, then check out Growing Family?s post on effective summer garden watering. With the summer holidays nearly upon us, you may think that you won?t have enough time to keep up with the garden, so check out these 7 quick gardening jobs, that will take less than 10 minutes, so we can all find that amount of time to keep the garden looking it?s best, even better, involve the children, check out Inspire, Create Educate?s post on Easy gardening activities for children. If you are looking for inspiration for your garden, then check out Renovation Bay-Bee for a garden transformation, you may find further ideas, from the blog hop, or Frugal Family?s garden makeover ideas If, like me , you have a problem with garden pests and things that destroy your plants (other than chickens, which are not great for keeping flowers healthy!!) then this post on tips for controlling plant disease may help you out. As we head into July, you might want to check out this post from Growing Family, that tells you all of the things you should have completed in June, so if there is anything on the list, that you haven?t done, now?s the time to do it. If you only have a small garden, do not worry as Emma Reed tells you how to make the most of your small garden. Before the school holidays begin, we are looking to purchase some new garden furniture as we have had ours so long, its falling apart, so this post on Garden Furniture from A Few Favourite things may come in handy. Last month a mummy robin had decided to nest in Asa?s shed, so it was off limits for a couple of weeks, I am happy to report the new baby robins have now left the nest meaning we can use the tools that are stored in the shed once again! This week, as we were cutting back the very overgrown bushes, we noticed that a pigeon had nested on the very end, right next to the patio steps, so every time we go up the steps we are stared at by some very fluffy (but very large) baby pigeons, if you have birds nesting in your garden, then, like me, you will probably feel compelled to provide them with food, if so, then check out Me and B Makes Tea post on Bird Feeding.

Your ESSENTIAL Guide to the Best Sun Protection products

Posted on 1:00 pm

WORDS BY AMANDA LEWIS The Summer is finally here its official ! It might only last for a few days, it could be here for a few weeks, who knows it could be a couple of months that we are basking in this seasonal halo. Now I don?t mean to bring your mood down, but there is a very serious side to this fantastic weather. We men and I do mean to generalise here are pretty damn awful when it comes to safe tanning, laying in the sun and most importantly putting on suncream and when we do, that it?s a high enough SPF (Sun Protection Factor). OK then, now because we at Clothes-Make-the-Man care about our loyal readers and we want you around for as long as possible we have compiled our top 5 tips for sun safety;1) Make sure you use enough product ? you should apply a blob about the size of a two pound coin for each limb and your front and back, as well as a blob about the size of a pound coin for your face,2) Protect your skin before you first go into the sun ? we recommend applying sun cream 15 minutes before going into the sun, then reapplying again as soon as you go out in the sun. After that, you should reapply every 1 to 2 hours, as well as immediately after swimming or towelling.3) Check for 5 star UVA rating ? ensure your chosen sun care product has maximum 5 star UVA protection as well as a high SPF, as this will provide the best protection from skin ageing as well as burning.4) Use an SPF of at least 15 ? you should be using a high SPF (30 or 50) if you?re going abroad or have fair skin. Also don?t forget?your lips, they are prone to drying and cracking and long term exposure can cause uneven colouration as well as more serious skin conditions.5) Choose a well-known brand that you trust ? when buying sun care make sure you look for a brand that are investing in research into the latest suncare technologies as well as in educating people about sun safety. With these top tips in mind, very much the last point, we have thoroughly researched the market to determine what are the best sun care products on the market. Since the 1970s, Bioderma has acquired a unique expertise in skincare and is recommended by Dermatologists worldwide. Bioderma?s sun care range is for everyone. With very high protection (SPF 50+, which blocks 98% of UVB rays), the Photoderm Max collection contains several options for face and body, as well as a Spray and Mousse for children that is adapted to their delicate skin. A sore Red nose isn?t the only feature that can be affected by the sun on your face. From dehydration lines to dull-looking skin, your face needs the upmost care to boast that healthy sun kissed, holiday glow. Hawaiian Tropic with their Silk Hydration Air Soft Face SPF30 have adapted their Air Soft formula into a handy 50ml bottle, designed specifically for facial use. Marks & Spencer are a trusted brand name and particularly when it comes to Safe Tanning and Suncare protection. Not only are these products Made in Great Britain, Extra water resistant, they offer both Ultra UVA and Max UVB ? according to EU maximum label recommendations. Plus they are Not tested on animals BUAV approved and are made...

10 WWE Wrestlers Who Came From Other Sports

Posted on 5:00 am

wikipedia WWE has a long history of signing athletes from other sports. Cynics say that it’s often driven by a lust for some coverage in the national press, but it also makes sense as a way to recruit talent. Sportsmen and women, apart from being in great physical nick, have a natural appreciation of the pressures of live performance and the sacrifices associated with a life on the road. The notion of professional wrestling as a safety net for failed football stars doesn’t sit well with everyone, though. There’s something less romantic about the story of a twenty-something deciding to give WWE a try for the hell of it than there is the one about a childhood fan who spent their summer holidays doing trampoline suplexes eventually making it big. But in reality, only a selection of us are blessed with the requisite physical attributes (and the dedication that goes with it) to reach the very top. Whether we like it or not, athletes-turned-wrestlers are here to stay, and there is plenty of proof that they can thrive in their second careers. In this post:  Goldberg   Posted On:  9th Jul 2017 Read the article online more...

10 WTF Animal Horror Movies You Won’t Believe Exist

Posted on 9:05 am

There are some genuinely scary animal horror movies out there and the one thing that unites them all is a believable villain. Sharks are an obvious choice (thanks, Jaws), as are crocodiles ? both beasts that have been known to be partial to a bit of human flesh every now and then. Spiders and snakes, who might not be able to devour you whole but can exterminate you with a swift venomous bite, work too. But some horrors feature animal antagonists so ludicrous they beggar belief. Maybe in trying to bring something other than yet another shark attack movie to genre, the makers of these films had to dredge the very depths of their creativity (and the food chain) to come up with something fresh and new. Unfortunately, this resulted in a wave of films with the most unlikely animal threats cinema has ever seen with species that would be hard-pushed to even slightly mentally traumatise a human, let alone kill them. Just a word of advice before we proceed for any budding animal horror directors out there: if your beastly villain inspires ?awwwws? instead of ?arrrrrghs? it might be better just to make another shark movie. go to here in the...

Instagram Round-up: Features to fix up your feed

Posted on 9:00 pm

Photo credit: tulpahn, Shutterstock Heatwaves, Glastonbury and LOTS of political talk ? June was certainly a busy month this time round wasn?t it? I?m a bit of a summer scrooge and already looking forward to the cooler autumnal months (just 4 months to get those Halloween costumes nailed guys!) but clearly the season is still in full swing as I can actually see the bottom of my laundry basket for once! I?m loving all of your holiday snaps and feeling the urge to switch off more and allow myself to put my feet up in the garden and soak up some of the sunshine with my little girl. With colourful family recipes, playtime adventures and beach escapades filling up my timeline, Instagram is once again my favourite inspirational platform for planning our summer days. So, what?s been on your feeds this month? ON TREND They?re one of life?s simplest pleasures, iridescent and a fabulous way to add a creative edge to your photography ? have you taken a ?bubble? shot yet? I think these are absolutely beautiful and I can?t wait to grab our bubble machine and have a play to see what magic of our own we can make! INSTA-PERFECT Leanne from A Slice of My Life Wales has written a gem of a post this month about how to perfect your Instagram photography (without a fancy camera or knowing all of the lingo!) and if you feel the odd photo is looking out of place on your feed then Hey, It?s Chel has the answer with Instagram?s recent addition of the archive feature.  Another development this year has been the Instagram Galleries feature, allowing you to share multiple photos in a single post, and Tara from Cattitude & Co has some interesting ideas as to how you can use them to your advantage. FAKING IT! Helena from Mother Inferior has discussed whether it?s fair to just share the good moments with your followers/friends whilst omitting the not-so-harmonious times. What do you think? Is selective sharing misleading or are you simply keeping your happy space in check? Emma from Island Living 365 has also touched upon authenticity in her recent post ?Being A Digital Influencer Isn?t All About The Numbers? saying ?It feels like 2017 could be the year for authenticity. Be yourself and hopefully a brand will want to work with you.? STORIES SUCCESS I adore using Instagram Stories. Infact, I probably post more regularly on my stories than I do on my feed itself. Oops! If you?re not sure about stories or confused about getting started then head over to Midwife and Life where Jenny has very kindly written a ?how to? post together with her top tips for getting noticed and reaching a wider audience. I?d also add that popping the location on your Instagram Stories can also help boost your reach too as, just like hashtags, they now have their own stories as well. I?ve been lucky enough to gain quite a few local followers this way who are interested in my reviews of attractions and services within our surrounding area. Lastly, here?s your monthly dose of insta inspiration with my five favourite feeds from June? @cecilia.leslie07  ? Cecilia has a beautifully colorful feed and, like myself, she focuses on eco parenting and ethical shopping. She?s also...
