Hype Music // Kasper Bjørke Apart (feat. Sísý Ey)

Hype Song of the Month // Kasper Bjørke Apart (feat. Sísý Ey)

Although Kasper Bjørke’s synth-soaked gem Apart is somewhat older by now (4th single from his highly acclaimed 4th LP After Forever), the Danish DJ/producer has just completed a collab with Director Karim Huu Do who explores the multifaceted experience of womanhood in a powerful and vibrant video for the song. Nine times of ten, Bjørke is one of Denmark’s finest representatives of delicate techno with a strong addiction to European clubs. While it’s not even necessary for Bjørke to leave the dancefloor, Apart follows a darker path into his musical roots of 80s new wave. All being accompanied by slick drum pads, vocalist Sísý Ey’s melancholic diva refrain and an archive video sequence of Simone de Beauvoir detailing an Eternal Feminine.

Fashion Now // The World of cosmopolitan Style

If it’s good enough for Paris Hilton, who is rumored to shop here every now and then, it’s good enough for us. One of the 1000 and one things to do while in Paris is a trip over the city’s Triangle d’Or, i.e. the Golden Triangle between the Champs Elysées, Avenue Montaigne and Avenue George V – at least window shopping wise. Luxury fashion labels congregate behind grandiose entrances, leaving you dragging your jaw past fabulous yet unaffordable window displays. French people even have an expression for that: lêche-vitrine, translating window licking in English. It’s that what you’ll be doing in Triangle d’Or a lot. If it’s not only for window licking, then it’s an eldorado for fashionistas and victims of conspicious consumption. Paris’ first multi-brand designer boutique is Montaigne Market with over sixty international designers, offering seductive prêt-à-porter. You can meet the beautiful ones at the Market during Paris Fashion Weeks even at night, sipping champagne and having witty small talks over the most exclusive pieces of the next season. But even if you can’t afford that Christopher Kane leather dress at 2000 Euros, you can still evaluate who’s hot in the world capital of cosmopolitan style, even if it’s through a peephole or a shop window, respectively.
