According to Gao, the inspiration for this season came from the cave paintings in Dunhuang, China. This is mostly visible in the hand-painted swirls, marbling, and decorative stitching that are meant to resemble the cave wall's water and fire paintings.

meet the artist turning your favorite foods into tiny accessories
Culture

Growing up, Daisy Mijangos’s mother collected miniatures, something that stuck with her. To this day, the 23-year-old still maintains her own robust collection of toys from her childhood including all things Hello Kitty and Nintendo. She's been revisiting her youth through intricate handcrafted jewelry and hair accessories that she makes under the name Pastry Plug, which mimic the foods she often bakes as a full-time pastry chef, but in tiny form. Think earrings featuring mini versions of bread baskets, pieces of cheesecake, cups of iced coffee, and so much more. They’re adorable and purposely so, meant to elicit the catharsis Daisy feels when she reflects on her younger days. Creating these itty-bitty objects using special types of clay, Daisy admits that after losing her father in middle school, it took her awhile to find a creative outlet that felt right. And it’s really only recently that she has been hitting her stride, using these pieces as a means to honor what she holds dear to her heart, including the feelings of unity and belonging. As she says, “Even if people don’t know the full story behind the pieces, making them is a form of therapy for me and helps me work through things. And hopefully I’m creating something that someone else can enjoy just by looking at them or wearing them.” i-D spoke with Daisy about how she got into making jewelry, how she’s turning nostalgia into wearable objects, and her first official collection.

This Acne-Positive Brand Wants You to Grab That Ice Cream Pint
Culture

Since its launch, ZitSticka has worked to dismantle stigma against acne and normalize the conversation surrounding it. And now, the cult pimple patch label is making the case for the acceptance of pimples with its new campaign, We Got You.Shot by Ashley Armitage, the commercial shows women doing everyday things — eating a late night snack or drinking a glass of wine — that have been apparently known to cause breakouts. Highlighting the shame women feel around it, the campaign urges viewers to do what they want anyway and basically, not give a fuck. "We wanted to develop scenes that felt familiar; little vignettes of everyday life that we can all laugh at because we've been there before," ZitSticka Creative Director Ben Tan says of the 90-second campaign video. "We also wanted to avoid telling our audience how to live a perfect life to achieve better skin, because it's a bit more complex than that. Who are we to chastise others for indulging in ice cream after a long day?"

8 essential albums for fall
Culture

Fall has been dark and haunting in all the right ways, and the music this season has matched the mood. Between Berhana’s debut album HAN and Summer Walker’s newest collection Over It, there’s a soundtrack for every vibe. Here are our favorite new fall releases:HAN, Berhana HAN is, in a word, weird––but in all the ways a listener could want. While Berhana’s self-titled 2016 EP established him as a master of the slow R&B hit through songs like “Grey Luh” and “Janet,” the artist’s newest collection showcases a refreshing experimentally and enormous musical growth.HAN is definitely a journey of an album, and to demonstrate this, Berhana cleverly structured his latest work like an outer space expedition: everything from the space-themed album cover to the four quirky “HN” interludes showcasing a flight attendant instructing the listener to “fasten your headphones and tighten until you feel the base has reached maximum slap.” All the songs on the album are quite different: “Golden” and “Drnuk” are more upbeat and feel-good, “I Been” and “I Wasn’t Told” are slower and more contemplative, and “Lucky Strike” has almost a disco-esque sound.

Although at the height of the scandal, the influencer lost about three million subscribers (highest in influencer history), he continues to reign as one of the top beauty influencers with more than 15.9 million followers on Instagram. And now, Charles may be banking on his fan base with his own beauty line. In a recent interview with WWD, the 20-year-old talked at length about being a beauty influencer and why it has taken him so long to even think about starting his own beauty brand. "I didn't want to do it, because I didn't have a solid concept," he said. "I didn't want to put out something that was ridiculous just to slap my name on it and get a few extra dollars in my bank account. I definitely won't be doing another palette anytime soon, [but] I do finally have a solid concept for a brand that hopefully will be something new in the market."

"Child labor laws!" Shia LaBeouf shouts in a beguiling drawl, in character as his own father, at Noah Jupe, in character as LaBeouf's childhood self. In an exclusive early clip from the new film Honey Boy, Jupe is made up in lipstick and hair curlers, playing an Even Stevens-era LaBeouf shooting a memorable scene on the Disney Channel show. LaBeouf screams the words at a room full of film producers, while nearly striking Jupe with the door as he throws it open to hustle the kid off set.It's a sour, unsettling scene, full of absurdity and bleak irony. A father purports to be concerned for his son's well-being, while it's heavily implied to the viewer he's a threat to it.That's not even to mention the eery mind-game of constantly contextualizing the characters. Shia LaBeouf has cast himself as his own father, under the name James Lort in the semi-autobigraphical film based on his childhood, which he spent being managed by his father, an emotionally abusive ex-rodeo clown, felon and alcoholic.

'honey boy' director alma har’el on working through trauma with shia labeouf

In a world where chaos can feel like the only constant, movies like Honey Boy make sense. Written by Shia LaBeouf in a court-ordered rehab after being arrested for public drunkenness, it’s a highly personal story of his lifelong battle with trauma, addiction, and PTSD. LaBeouf utterly transforms into the role of his father, James – a pot-bellied rodeo clown plagued with addiction and a thick Southern accent — who’s paid to chaperone his 12-year-old actor son Otis (based on LaBeouf IRL and played by the indomitable Noah Jupe). The film swings between decades, with Lucas Hedges starring as the 22-year-old Otis who begins to unravel and finally undergo therapy.

Late last night, FKA twigs released her long-awaited and already critically-acclaimed second album MAGDALENE on Young Turks. The full-length follows in the wake of heartbreaking lead single 'Cellophane' with its surreal Andrew Thomas Huang fantasy video, sexy witchy trap tune 'Holy Terrain' featuring Future, string-heavy 'Home With You', and 'Sad Day', which we called the result of Opus III’s 1992 dance hit 'It’s A Fine Day' running into Kate Bush on a hillside. With contributions from the likes of Nicholas Jaar, Skrillex and Jack Antonoff, the intense vulnerability of the self-produced record contrasts with just how precise and superhuman her talent is. MAGDALENE, FKA twigs told i-D in her cover interview, is about “every lover that I’ve ever had, and every lover that I’m going to have”. Musically, she described it as “just when you think it’s really fragile and about to fall apart, there’s an absolute defiance and strength in a way that my work’s never had before."

why bold, bedazzled makeup is everywhere
Culture

If the spring/summer 2020 shows were any indication, makeup is continuing to get bigger, bolder, and more bedazzled. There was full-body glitter at Gypsy Sport, an uncanny use of false lashes at Gucci, and a festival of heavily appliqued eyes at Libertine. Over the past couple of years, we saw the rise of barely-there makeup brands like Glossier, Kim Kardashian West’s illusory no makeup-makeup look, and the Korean glass skin trend. But makeup is going above and beyond its traditional purpose of “enhancement,” and being used as a true tool for creative expression, especially among Gen Z.Of course, exaggerated, theatrical makeup is not entirely new. In fact, Pat McGrath has been doing Euphoria-esque makeup for Anna Sui runways since the 90s. Before that, drag queens like Lady Bunny and RuPaul were crafting their own over-the-top looks, which would later inspire the famous contestants seen on Drag Race.

stan or ban: this louis vuitton airpod case
Culture

We’ve seen some truly bizarre things in the history of Stan or Ban. i-D HQ are veterans of the absurd, the ridiculous, the strangely entrancing. We’ve examined the heeled flip-flop, we’ve obsessed over the platform Croc, we’ve seen it all. We have the thousand yard stare of Marlon Brando at the end of Apocalypse Now, and we’re scarred by the horror, the horror of it all.Anyway, this all makes us uniquely qualified to introduce to you the latest uber-specific Louis Vuitton drop — this tiny little monogrammed pouch created specifically for your AirPods. The latest release comes after the house designed their own $995 version of AirPods back in January, as a necessary and not at all superfluous upgrade.

Mani Blü Takes Us for a Spin With 'Round & Round'
Culture

The first thing you need to know about Australian musician Mani Blü is that their two biggest inspirations are Andy Warhol and David Bowie — and they aren't shy about it either. Part of a new generation of rising pop artists drawing inspiration from the electrified sounds of the 2000s, Bowie and Warhol's influence is all over Blü's work, from their androgynous '80s-inspired visuals to the borderline theatrical flourishes they use to embellish their songs. With only a couple of singles under their belt, Blü has made it clear out the gate that they know who they are and what they stand for.Related | Dorian Electra Goes All the WayIf you're looking for an opportunity to get on board, their newest single "Round & Round" is the perfect chance. Featuring production from seasoned bubblegum bass veterans Wave Racer and Fresh Hex, the track is filled to the brim with dazzling bright and glossy synths that straddle the line between Max Martin and SOPHIE. Blü manages to channel the strength and charm of an entire boy band into their vocals with plenty of earworm-y hooks and fun "woahs" to go around.

has the internet helped breed a new generation of queerphobia?
Culture

Queer people are everywhere. When they’re not presiding over whole countries (see Luxembourg and Serbia’s heads of state), they’re dominating the Billboard Hot 100 for months at a time like our boy Lil Nas X. A whole bunch of them -- including i-D favourite Indya Moore -- are playing pivotal characters in the iconic, Emmy-winning series Pose right now, and are dominating magazine covers too. Right now, we’re supposedly living in a queer utopia, in which young people’s futures are being nurtured by progressive politics and a new-found acceptance from mainstream culture.Just a decade ago, the surface-level scenario seemed different. Interpretations of queer people on screen were sanitised, one-dimensional and, more often than not, white. (Friends, for example, didn’t even include a same-sex kiss in their 'The One with the Lesbian Wedding' episode). Meanwhile trans people were either victimised or the butt of a joke; like Lieutenant Lois Einhorn in Ace Ventura: Pet Detective. We needed a new wave of liberal young minds to help dismantle those ideals. For the most part, we have them now.

the soundtrack to your cosy weekend, by norway's sassy 009
Culture

Allow us to introduce you to Sunniva Lindgaard, the Oslo-based musician behind Sassy 009. Once a trio, Sunni took the reins on the project at the start of 2019 and is currently steering it solo and very much in the right direction. You might know Sassy 009 from playing the i-D stage at The Great Escape back in 2018, or the flute on this track, or generally making great music. Since then, singles 'Thrasher', 'Maybe In the Summer' and 'Are You Still A Lover?' have seen Sunni teeter beautifully somewhere between bedroom pop and melodic club tunes. A very good place to teeter. As she gears up to release her KILL SASSY 009 EP on 22 November via LUFT Recordings, we called on Sunni to make us a mix. "If last week was a movie, this would’ve been the sound of it," she told us. "I’m dedicating this to a person I’ve been biking around with in Amsterdam for a week. Not a second with you feels wasted." Luckily, the soundtrack to this dream cycling date also happens to be the ideal fit for a sleepy November weekend. A heavy 80s influence sees LA's Drab Majesty and Cold Showers bleed into the sound of long-gone Norwegian band Montasje. i-D favourites Clairo, King Krule and Blood Orange make appearances too, as do Brian Eno and T.Rex. What a line-up!

Everyone’s favourite R&B-infused flamenco singer is back... and this time she has a monobrow!Yep, that’s right: Rosalía has released a video for her brand new single 'A Palé’', the first track she’s dropped since this summer’s 'Yo x Ti, Tu x Mi'. The video sees her dancing in an industrial park, before being fed down a sinister conveyor belt by people in white workwear and face-masks. For what purpose? We can only speculate. There’s also a really cool bit where she jumps in slow motion from one shipping container to another -- The Matrix whomst?! But it’s Rosalía, rather than the setting, that makes this video iconic. As well as the vaguely Frida Kahlo-esque brows, she’s sporting a gold tooth, and her signature, dangerously long fake nails — one of her most striking looks yet. And as for the song itself? It’s as sultry, groaning, bass-heavy and aggressive as ever.

GLAAD’s annual report called “Where We Are On TV,” which came out today, found that not only have their efforts paid off, but the organization is closer to achieving their goal of having 20 percent of regular characters on scripted series (across broadcast, cable, and streaming services) be LGBTQ+ by 2025. “In a time when LGBTQ rights are under attack in this country, increased visibility and representation of LGBTQ stories and characters on television continues to be critical in accelerating acceptance for the LGBTQ community,” said Sarah Kate Ellis, president of GLAAD, in a statement. “Shows like Pose, Schitt’s Creek, Batwoman, and Billions demonstrate that not only are LGBTQ stories and characters on television becoming more diverse, but also that viewers everywhere continue to respond with extreme positivity to these types of perspectives.”

Following the release of Call Me By Your Name in 2017, everyone involved with the film gave statement after statement regarding the possibility of a sequel. At one point, Director Luca Guadagnino claimed he wanted to make a decadent five-film series, where he’d document the characters as they age, and apparently, with the first sequel to be set “right after the fall of the Berlin Wall.” Timothée Chalametcompared the style of their storytelling conceit to Boyhood, adding that he doesn’t see “any world where [a sequel] doesn’t happen,” and Armie Hammer went on talk shows joking that he and Timmy were down “as long as they give [each of them] $12 million.” But after the film picked up an Oscar, they all went on to new projects.

There was a soft shock of nothing. That is, until the book’s author André Aciman tweeted: “I would actually love a sequel to Call Me By Your Name. In fact I am writing one.”

why 'honey boy' is the healing film of 2019
Culture

When I was a teenager and feeling particularly upset, I would draw thick rings on paper with a pencil, over and over again until the lead snapped, the paper ripped or I calmed down. Even now, as an adult, I still draw to calm myself, usually repeating leaves that fill the page. There’s something to be said about the process of putting something on paper and the release of creativity in your brain -- even drawing simple rings and leaves -- that opens another valve in your brain with great healing power.That’s the general theory behind art therapy. The branch of psychological therapy is about building up an individual’s sense of self, allowing them to process and release pent up emotions through creativity and visual language, even the low-fi, self-administered version of art therapy I did as a teenager. According to the American Art Therapy Association, art therapy has the potential to “foster self-esteem and self-awareness, cultivate emotional resilience, promote insight, enhance social skills, reduce and resolve conflicts and distress, and advance societal and ecological change.”

Nothing released so far in 2019 goes quite as hard as Jack Harlow's first verse on the standout track, "Ghost," from his new album Confetti: "She want me to serenade her, but you know I'm bashful/ I got all the whipper-snappers and the lil' rascals." He keeps it cool, but under his words is a confidence he's been cultivating for the better part of his career. There's a certain swing to his lines that harkens back to early 2010s — a time when rap was about delivering blow-for-blow comebacks and buzzing choruses to fuel commenters and spark fan wars. A decade later, however, he's managing to make his sound distinct — and, in a way, more fiery than before.When talking about his new album, he argues that, sonically, it's his best yet. There aren't really any skips on Confetti, nor any slumps. His energy and tone are high throughout, biting at each 808 and bass hit that pops up on his more aggressive tracks. It's clear that Confetti stands alone from his previous records, 18, Gazebo, and Loose, but in its cohesiveness rather than quality. While he's been just as high energy on his other releases, Confetti remains an overarching testament to his network and vision as a creator, without losing sight of his Louisville roots.

Kunlun was alerted last spring that the U.S. was investigating them to discover whether or not the app was being mined for "nefarious purposes," including blackmailing and threatening closeted American politicians.

Coolest Person in the Room: Julia Fox
Culture

Popularity is relative, and especially in the digital age. You could have hundreds of thousands of followers online, but be completely unknown in the streets — massively famous on Instagram, YouTube or Twitter, but lack any kind of real, authentic cool in person. For our new series, Coolest Person in the Room, New York-based photographer Megan Walschlager pinpoints all the people whose energy is contagious regardless of their following count or celebrity. Meet Julia Fox, the native New Yorker, modern renaissance woman and breakout actress you need to know. Tell me about your day job.I don't really have a day job, I haven't in a long time. I've gotten fired from any job I've ever had, so I basically just do everything for myself. Right now, I guess I'm kind of veering into acting, by accident. I really like it and I think I'm good at it and I hope I can do more stuff like that. My real passion, though, is directing and producing.

Record Shopping With DJ Seinfeld
Culture

When the bulk of music discovery now happens through algorithmically generated playlists and endless content feeds, there is something to be said for wading waist deep into crates of records to physically pluck a gem from the dusty stacks — flipping through options, wrestling with settings on the beat up listening station, finding that rare record that has cool artwork and sounds good.Within the small forest of house plants and freshly burnt incense at Bushwick's Secondhand Records, I link up with Armand Jakobsson, better known as DJ Seinfeld, to do a little record shopping before his gig later that night. A key figure in the recent rise of the lo-fi house scene, DJ Seinfeld has made a name for himself as being a canny selector, having been tapped for a DJ-Kicks compilation and BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix; he's celebrated for his exquisitely tailored live sets full of deep cuts, obscure rarities, and the occasional crowd pleaser.

How HANA Created Her New Album on Twitch in Just Four Weeks
Culture

In the age of extreme connectivity, it's not unusual for musicians to reach across the digital void and into the screens of fans through livestreaming. As Los Angeles-based electro-pop musician HANA (born: Hana Pestle) proved by broadcasting the creation of her new album, HANADRIEL,online over an intense four-week span on Twitch, livestreaming platforms also afford a rare opportunity to eliminate traditional boundaries between artist and listener.Launched in 2011, Twitch is a streaming platform used largely by gamers to broadcast their gameplay, from RPGs (role playing games) like Final Fantasy to first-person games like Overwatch. At any given moment an estimated 1.3 million viewers watch streams on Twitch, which also includes non-gaming content like Q&As, performances, and special recording sessions from artists like Brendon Urie and Deadmau5. HANA believes that HANADRIEL, however, is the first album created fully live and in real time on Twitch.

Don't Tell OHSO What Girls Can't Do
Culture

OHSO never planned to be a DJ. She grew up in Toronto in an Ethiopian family and was supposed to be a doctor or a scientist. To her credit, she tried, even if she did it all through gritted teeth. Now, OHSO's playing self-curated events worldwide, including for Red Bull's Atlanta Music Festival, but the road to success wasn't without hurdles. One night when she was younger, OHSO snuck out of the house to a concert, where the DJ saved her life by playing all her favorite tracks. This was the first time she remembers having such a cathartic experience on the dance floor. "The next morning I told my mom, 'I'm gonna be a DJ,'" OHSO says. "I was so proud of myself because in that moment I knew what I supposed to be doing." Unfortunately, OHSO's mother didn't share her enthusiasm.

Ariana Grande Reportedly Responds to Fans Calling Out Lizzo

Ariana Grande reportedly responded to her fans after they began calling out Lizzo via the trending #LizzoIsOverParty hashtag.

Good as hell is 3 years old... baby how you feelin?! https://t.co/pM9q8xOvyLHowever, Arianators — who appear to be operating under the idea that "Good as Hell" made the leap thanks to Grande's appearance on the recently-released "Good as Hell" remix — took issue with Lizzo's celebratory tweet and began accusing her of "not crediting" Grande for her "help." Related | Ariana Grande and Lizzo Unite on "Good as Hell" RemixDespite the fact that the original version of "Good as Hell" — which does not feature Grande — is charting, Ari's fans began tweeting under the #LizzoIsOverParty hashtag — simultaneously arguing that Lizzo "used ariana and didnt give her any credit," while insisting that Billboard should've credited Grande.

charli xcx talks us through her tour wardrobe
Culture

Backstage at the opening night of her UK tour, Charli XCX winces a little. The popstar is reluctantly recalling the stage outfits she wore as a teenager. “I started performing at the time when nu-rave was a thing,” she sighs, as if letting out a little confession. “There was a lot of DIY: children’s toys, ribbons… wearing two tutus at once. I had a Marge Simpson-slash-Marie Antoinette wig that was blue, and I thought it was the coolest thing, like I was ahead of my time.” She blames her parents’ encouragement for the fact that those outfits are now immortalised on the internet (sorry Charli); the opening chapter of her illustrious career. “That was all thanks to them telling me ‘Be you! Do you!’” she grins.

Lionheart, the first film ever submitted to the Oscars by Nigeria, has been disqualified by The Academy for the Best International Feature Film category. Until this year, the category was known as Best Foreign Language Film — a title The Academy is forgoing to promote a more "positive and inclusive view of filmmaking."

these young artists celebrate the legacy of downtown legend jim walrod
Culture

There were children yelling in the 8-Ball Community gallery space in New York's East Village. As adults bustled around chatting, drinking wine, and looking at art, two children were playing on a curved blue bar, raised a few feet off of the ground. One of the kids swung on the bar, jumping up into the air and slamming his feet down onto the ground. Both of them laughed, repeating the gesture again. It felt communal.Jim Walrod, the interior designer whose legacy inspired the night, would have likely been pleased. Born in Jersey City, the designer became the “furniture pimp” for Mike D of the Beastie Boys, logged time as an assistant art director of Fiorucci, and designed the lobbies of The Standard LA — Steven Soderberg’s film The Girlfriend Experience heavily features his designs for Gild Hall, a hotel in the Financial District. But, he was also known as a connector, pairing his friends off with others they might find of interest or valuable down the line, and Daniel Castillo had made the piece of public seating the children were playing on, specifically in memory of Walrod.

have we gone too far to ever switch off?
Culture

The first thing visitors to Somerset House’s major new winter exhibition, 24/7: a wake up call for our non-stop world, will experience is momentary blindness. The loss of vision is thanks to an array of flashing lightbulbs positioned by the entrance. At first the bulbs blink slowly and individually. But within seconds the flares have become frantic, flickering at lightning speed until finally, they come together in one blinding climax before burning out altogether. Then the nightmarish cycle begins again.According to curators of 24/7, which is inspired by art critic Jonathan Crary’s 2013 book 24/7: Late Capitalism and the Ends of Sleep, the lights are a visual representation of the industrial advances that have led us to a crisis of modernity: the inability to switch off. The bulbs represent new developments from the late 19th century onwards that have encouraged ever more intense cycles of consumption and production under capitalism: artificial light, the punch in clock that measures working hours, the world wide web, social media and even state surveillance.

7 of prince's most iconic outfits
Culture

Never one to follow the crowd, Prince set a new standard not only for music, but also style. His intricately-designed outfits reached another level of artistry and challenged traditional gender roles. His unique style has left an indelible mark on the fashion world, inspiring runway designers such as Versace, and countless musicians, such as Lil Nas X. The recently released Prince memoir, titled The Beautiful Ones, further explores just how monumental Prince’s pop culture influence continues to be following his untimely death in 2016. In honor of the High Priest of Pop’s new book, i-D takes a look at some of his most iconic style moments throughout the years: Performance of “Gett Off” at the 1991 MTV VMA’s For his performance during the 1991 MTV VMA’s, Prince took the stage dressed in a yellow lace suit and yellow boots while performing with a matching yellow guitar. The boldest statement of the night though may have been when Prince turned around while on stage to reveal that his trousers were backless, exposing his butt to the world. However, as it turns out, there is more than meets the eye. In a 2017 interview with a Minnesota news publication, Prince’s master fabric dyer, Marliss Jensen, shared that what appeared to be cutouts were actually panels of fabric made to match the musician’s flesh, giving off the illusion that Prince was showing his bottom when in reality he was not.
