It has been noisily building to this moment, but elrow , Spain’s outlandish immersive art and music extravaganza, is about to become a household name this side of the Atlantic.

To get their 2019 mayhem underway, they’re throwing another outrageous Winter Festival at Avant Gardner in Brooklyn – marking their third year at ground zero of international hipsterification.
Louis Vuitton has reached across the cultural zeitgeist for the campaign promoting the new Tambour Horizon connected watch. Indeed, it features four talents from four different universes: British Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner; American actor, screenwriter, director, and producer Justin Theroux; Norwegian/Thai model Urassaya Sperbund; and Chinese film star Liu Haoran.
