The near hysteria surrounding the release last November of Kate Bush’s Remastered box sets merely confirms the towering love still reserved for music’s most iconoclastic enigma. Surely not keen to let the momentum fizzle, Rhino is now breaking up the set and selling it in pieces. Indeed, in what will actually be the final installment of the series, the rarities half of CD Box 2 has been separated out, and re-titled The Other Sides

A girl from a humble bohemian upbringing on New York’s Lower East Side, Emily King had a major record deal at 19, and that same year (2004), guested on Nas’ album Street Disciple . By 2007 she had released her debut album East Side Story , nabbed a Grammy nomination for that same album, toured with John Legend, and opened for Alicia Keys. She went sort of “underground” for awhile, not releasing her follow up full-length ( The Switch ) until 2015. But grabbed up by ATO in 2017, she escaped from Gotham to a quiet corner of the Catskills in Upstate New York, to summon new inspiration for her latest, which was released earlier this month
Unlike those mega-corporate brands, Virgin has been distinctly more methodical in the building of its new hospitality venture. Indeed, their first hotel opened just more than four years ago in Downtown Chicago – and it’s taken this long for the follow up
Image courtesy of ‘Lagerfeld Confidential’ The word “legendary” gets tossed around rather carelessly these days – but if anyone was deserving of the title, it was Herr Karl Lagerfeld , who, it was sadly announced, passed away yesterday at age 85. An unparalleled fashion designer above all, Lagerfeld was one of the last of a fading breed of European Renaissance Man: a photographer, artist, intellectual and, what we particularly appreciated, stinging wit. But surely he will always be associated with Chanel , the fabled house he took over in 1983, transforming it into the citadel of modern style it remains to this day
Can’t make it to the trendy Mexican Riviera for your winter retreat this year?
Around the time of the release of her first single last year, AWMIN (Amanda Winberg) told Allure of the decision to dye her hair blue, “ Just showing that you don’t really let the ideal form of beauty play a part in your life sends a message you’re very confident.” Coming from a country – Sweden – that does indeed idealize a more classical conception of beauty, it decisively marked her out as someone to watch. Now back to being a blonde, the Swedish Idol runner-up injects all that confidence into her music, which, just three singles into her career, betrays a remarkable maturity
Images by Dan Lecca Christian Siriano , famously style collaborator to the glorious Karen O, can do no wrong in our book. After Bebe Rexha made a statement a few weeks back regarding how no designers would lend her dresses for the Grammys due to her being a size 8, Siriano was one of the first to step up and support her with pieces from his collection.
Images by Dan Lecca Oh, how the style gods are upon us. New York Fashion Week is here once again, and we have been blessed with some amazing collections this season. To wit, Zadig & Voltaire , after a season of showing in Paris, debuted their latest looks on February 11th at The Tunnel – the iconic Chelsea nightclub that once played host the coolest of the cool ’80s and ’90s Club Kids.
(This picks right up from Part I of our Abu Dhabi story…) Peckish from sightseeing, we headed back to The Grand Hyatt where we lunched at Verso , a stylish Italian trattoria, serves outstanding pizzas, pastas like pappardelle ai gamberi and squid ink risotto – not faint praise coming from a New Yorker. The property will boast a total of six international dining options (just two were open when we were there), so you’ll never go hungry. Sahha, an “adventurous market,” is the spot for made-to-order and buffet breakfast and dinner options – don’t miss the big-as-your-head pastel-colored meringues at the dessert station
