Yohji Yamamoto || Master of the Shadows

Phil Sansom has partnered with Broadwick Live to present a new short film dedicated to Japanese fashion designer Yohji Yamamoto. Master of the Shadows was in turn captured in route to Y-3’s FW16 collection launch in Paris earlier this year.

The interview finds Yamamoto discussing his unmatched passion for design, albeit challenging at times to remain focused.

“Around 15 years ago, I felt that I had come too far from the street,” he revealed. “I was almost losing my enthusiasm for making clothing.”

Shortly thereafter, Yohji embarked on a partnership with adidas, thus creating Y-3. Yamamoto insisted that it was “time to care for the body,” which led to the futuristic sportswear label being born.

To hear Yohji detail his passion for design, as well as his ongoing partnership with the Three Stripes, press play below.

The Wait || Short Film

Short film The Wait follows young Belgian wildlife photographer Michel D’Oultremont as he trails wild bison through the remote mountains of Romania. The beautifully shot documentary came to be after director David Hayes and producer Hannah Salvanes Mclean saw Michel’s work win the 'Rising Star' award at the Natural History Museum’s 2014 Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition. They approached him to document his next adventure, with the resulting film eventually becoming The Wait

  The 10-minute piece captures the anticipation, patience and passion of Michel’s art, following the process from his Belgian home all the way through to the lengthy stake-outs on the Romanian mountains. Speaking about the film he said: 

"During the shoot luck wasn’t really on our side as the animals were very discreet. That’s also what makes wildlife photography so special; nothing is ever guaranteed. The final film is incredible and I think that phrase 'the wait' perfectly encompasses the tough conditions we were in." 

The Wait was produced by video production company Contra Agency. Watch and enjoy below!

Frederico Morais || Post-Classic

"If you intend to represent some kind of modernity, you should start through the classics."
History knowledge told us that every substantial expression of modernity, results from a skillful understanding of the classical principles. It´s been like that in music, dancing, fine arts, literature…
It´s been like that every time a Man uses their capacity to perform some kind of self expression and interpretation of nature and reality.
It seems that´s what surf is all about…

LOUW Skateboards || Tribute

LOUW Skateboards has just release a special project dedicated to the Menace Days as explained by LOUW’s boss Enrique Lorenzo: “Billy Valdez, Eric Pupecki, Steven Cales, Fabian Alomar, Joey Suriel, Lee Smith and Javier Nuñez: friends with whom I spent great moments since 1996. I met them in Chaffey, Rialto, a school where we used to skate. After moving to Hollywood with Socrates Leal and starting to shoot for World Industries, we began to skate together daily at USC, Santa Monica, Venice, Lockwood, Los Feliz… Being with them was a bit surreal. I knew who they were, but i never imagined getting to get along so well. I did not know much English and they spoke perfect Spanish, so it was easy to become good friends!

“Tribute” is the name of the video edited by Mario Cano and filmed by Fernando Garcia (L.A.), Enrique Lorenzo, Felix Bollaín and Mario Cano. It includes original and previously unseen footage of the Menace boys Fabian Alomar, Eric Pupecki, Billy Valdez, Joey Suriel, Lee Smith, Steven Cales and Javier Nuñez mixed with the likes of Enrique Lorenzo´s LOUW: Octavio Barrera, Felipe Bartolomé, Pol Catena, Carlos Cardeñosa and Juan Virues.
