Bleu de Chauffe Creates Reflex Bag for Photographers

bleu-de-chauffe-3

Bleu de Chauffe has created the Reflex bag with all of its savoir-faire, designing a technical yet authentic collection in order to address the most demanding photographers. The Reflex bag, made from the best vegetable-tanned leathers, is a beautiful alternative to common camera bags which are quite often focusing on utility only, featuring a poor design and not adapted to modern needs. Made in Bleu de Chauffe wokshop in Aveyron, France, Reflex bag can be used as a shoulder bag, as a backpack or simply hand-carried. A shoulder strap specifically designed for cameras is completing this first range.

Fjällräven Taps Chris Burkard For “Own the Cold” Campaign

own-the-cold-11

Swedish heritage outfitter, Fjällräven unveils its Fall-Winter 2015 brand campaign: Own the Cold captured with legendary outdoor photographer Chris Burkard to capture its seasonal campaign.

The campaign takes us on a tour into the Canadian Rockies. Inspired by the adventurous spirit of the new tribe of outdoor enthusiasts, the campaign follows an overland journey through the glacial flats of Calgary, into Banff’s Bow Valley and to the summit of Mt. Assiniboine (a.k.a. The Matterhorn of the Rockies), an arrowhead peak that scrapes the sky at 12,000-feet high. Met by sunshine, rain and snow along the way, Burkard captures Fjällräven in its element: as a durable brand built to withstand all weather conditions.

Throughout the adventure, Fjällräven showcases a selection of outerwear from its Fall-Winter 2015 collection, including the Polar Guide Parka, Luhkka, Greenland No.1 Special Edition Down Jacket, Barents Parka, Keb Loft Hoodie and Övik 3-in-1 Jacket. The campaign also highlights new sweaters, pants, layering pieces, accessories and offers a preview of the brand’s forthcoming eco-friendly tent collection slated to drop in early 2016. View the collection here.

On Monday night, we were invited to attend Starz’s screening of its new original series, FLESH AND BONE, at NYU’s Skirball Center in New York’s Greenwich Village.  FLESH AND BONE tells the story of Claire (played by Sarah Hay (“Black Swan”)), a young dancer with a dark past who joins a prestigious ballet company in New York and finds herself suddenly thrust into the spotlight. Though she wants to seize the opportunity, Claire holds secrets which threaten to frustrate her undeniable talent.  Driving both her ambitions and her art is the company’s mercurial Artistic Director, played by Ben Daniels (“House of Cards”).

NYC, Thank Heaven for Film at Lincoln Center

By Opal H. Bennett

todd-haynesDirector, Todd Haynes

The venerable Film Society at Lincoln Center has announced a film survey that would make any cinephile want to pitch a tent at Walter Reade this month: Todd Haynes — The Other Side of Dreams.   Running from November 18th through 29th, and including 9 of Haynes’ films, including the New York Film Festival selection Carol (Cate Blanchett, Rooney Mara), the program features a comprehensive survey of Haynes’s body of work, supplemented by a selection of his own influences: each title is paired with a film—chosen by Haynes himself—that informed it in some way. The series also features a two-film sidebar celebrating 20 years of Killer Films, the legendary production company co-founded by longtime Haynes producer Christine Vachon.

Pop Physique: A Modern Take on Barre Exercise Comes to Baltimore from California

by Leslie Long

pop-physique-3

If you live in any of the desirable neighborhoods in Los Angeles (Silver Lake, Larchmont, Redondo, Venice — and way more), chances are you’ve heard of Pop Physique. After all, they’ve opened 18 California studios in the past six years. Most are in the LA area, but they’re in San Francisco, too. If you’re from the east coast, you may not have heard of them — but if you live somewhere cool, you soon will.

Pop Physique has a way of placing their studios in just the right emerging areas where the spaces are inviting and the audience is right. Their branding shows beautifully sculpted bodies and butts. While it’s certainly attention getting, the experience lives up to the lure.

Nike and adidas Invest in 3D Printing for Custom Shoe Design

nike-3d-printing-shoes

Plenty of industries are experimenting with 3D printing and what it might mean for their own futures. Will consumers go out to eat in the future or simply print out a nice burger to order with a side of fries? Only time will tell.

Nike, for one, sees the new technology as a potentially big boost to the bottom line. The company, which has a long history of investing in innovation, told investors Wednesday that it expects to have $50 billion in revenue by 2020, according to USA Today. (That’s about $20 billion more than its last full fiscal year, by the way.) A sliver of that may come from 3D printing by that point, but the technology is expected to allow that piece of the pie to grow.
