surf shacks

Surf Shacks

Surfing is a way of life. A life dominated by the waves and the tide with a cozy place to pause in between. Creative personalities crafting bold homes, Surf Shacks illustrates how surfers live both on and off shore. Many abodes can fall under the label of surf shack: New York City apartments, cabins nestled next to national parks, or tiny Hawaiian huts. Surfing communities are overflowing with creativity, innovation and rich personas. Surf Shacks takes a deeper look at surfers' homes and artistic habits. Glimpses of record collections, strolls through backyard gardens, or a peek into a painter’s studio provide insight into surfers’ lives both on and off shore. From the remote Hawaiian nook of filmmaker Jess Bianchi to the woodsy Japanese paradise that the former CEO of Surfrider Foundation in Japan, Hiromi Masubara, calls home to the converted bus that Ryan Lovelace claims as his domicile and his transport, every space has a unique tale. The moments that these vibrant personalities spend away from the swell and the froth are both captivating and nuanced. Through anecdotes and photographs, illustrations and conversations, Surf Shacks reveals a more personal side to surfing and its eclectic cast of characters.

Specifications - Format: Hardback. 24 × 28 cm. Full color, hardcover, 288 pages.

Ordbogen

”Eow dig, har du ik' shuffet den her endnu! ”Igennem de sidste 10 år har den urbane ungdomskultur bevæget sig fra en lille subkultur, der primært har eksisteret i lukkede miljøer, kældre og tunneller, til én af de mest dominerende ungdomskulturelle strømninger, der er med til at præge det talte sprog gennem musik, film og litteratur. GADEDANSK ORDBOGEN er en omfattende afdækning af det gadesprog, som er blevet populariseret igennem de sidste 10 år af artister som Gilli, Stepz, Branco, Sivas og Jamaika. Artister som i samme periode, har bevæget sig fra undergrunden til den absolutte top af den danske musikindustri.

GADEDANSK ORDBOGEN beskriver mere end 1.000 ord, udtryk og vendinger med oprindelse, bøjninger, ordklasse, udtale, eksempler og et omfattende opslagsregister, så du altid kan finde præcis det ord, du lige gik og manglede i din hverdag. GADEDANSK ORDBOGEN er samtidig en hyldest til den kultur, som har formået at fortolke internationale trends til en dansk kontekst og gøre dem relevante for ungdommen på en appellerende måde.

No. 5

No. 5

Chanel

Arguably the most famous perfume in the world – most memorably endorsed by Marilyn Monroe – Chanel No. 5 continues to fascinate and claims millions of devotees around the world. Created in 1921 by Coco Chanel, the perfume was one of the first to use synthetics. To complement her pioneering fashion, Chanel wanted to give the modern woman ‘a perfume, but an artificial perfume…not rose or lily of the valley…a perfume that is compound’, presented in a distinctively pared-back glass bottle that would become an icon in its own right (inspiring a series of works by Andy Warhol decades later).

Presented in two volumes (one on the early years of Chanel No 5 from 1921 to 1945, the other on the period in which Chanel No. 5 went truly global, from the postwar years to today), Chanel No. 5 explores the evolution of the perfume’s packaging, composition, manufacture and marketing, with unprecedented access to the Chanel archives and those tasked with creating the fragrance today.

The world’s leading creatives have lent their talents to the perfume’s advertising campaigns, which are given pride of place in the book, from photographers such as Richard Avedon and Helmut Newton, to film directors including Ridley Scott and Baz Luhrmann, and stylish muses – Coco Chanel herself, of course, as well as Suzy Parker, Catherine Deneuve, Nicole Kidman, Gisele Bündchen and Lily-Rose Depp.

Muller Van Severen

Muller Van Severen

Works 2011-21

Muller Van Severen is a joint design project of the photographer Fien Muller and artist Hannes Van Severen. The work of photographer Fien Muller and artist Hannes Van Severen lies on the edge between art and design: they favour functional furniture with refined shapes and contours, but at the same time the pieces also have something fragile and frivolous about them. Muller and Van Severen have been working together for a decade and during this time, the combination of their family roots, work process, and the use of simple industrial materials in combination with a rich colour palette have created an influential body of work – elementary forms shape functional sculptures that grow into vibrant spaces.

Through conversations and visual references, dialogue unveils the origins, the complexity, and the references embedded in the DNA of Muller Van Severen’s work. Curator Jan Boelen leads an exploration of the designers’ universe, through interviews with Fien Muller and Hannes Van Severen, curator and critic Beatrice Galilee, and architects Arno Brandhuber and Sam Chermayeff.

Vogue Paris:

Vogue Paris:

100 Years

Vogue Paris has always been so much more than a fashion magazine. It has assumed a central and vital role on the international cultural stage, with a history that spans the most inventive decades in fashion and taste, and in the arts and society. It has acted as a cultural bellwether, putting fashion in the context of the larger world in which we live and mirroring its times – the postwar renaissance of Paris and haute couture, the New Wave, the radical seventies, the glamorous eighties. As it enters its second century, it remains at the cutting edge of photography and design.

Published to mark the magazine’s centenary, this book celebrates Vogue Paris’s history from its first issue in 1920 to its current incarnation with Emmanuelle Alt at the helm. On its pages are creations by some of the greatest artists of their era, whether distinguished illustrators such as Lepape, Gruau and Benito, or photographers such as Man Ray, Helmut Newton, Guy Bourdin and Mario Testino. Here, too, are iconic faces: Catherine Deneuve, Audrey Hepburn, Brigitte Bardot, Kate Moss and more. And of course, it showcases the fashion designers who defined the century – Chanel, Dior, Balenciaga, Saint Laurent, McQueen – and explores more broadly the changing mores of the past hundred years.
