As the Haute Couture Week comes to an end, have a look at what went down in Paris. Again, for Summer 2023, Haute Couture returns in all its glory, reminding us that fashion is a dream machine. We often wonder what the task of fashion is. Perhaps the best answer is that there is no answer. Fashion is a complex device that helps us see beyond the barriers of everyday life. A superfluous game, perhaps. But human beings live on the superfluous. As Professor Keating said in Dead Poets Society, "poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for."
Cabrones De Armas, the new exhibition by Bruce LaBruce and Slava Mogutin on view at Manos Amigues from January 27 to February 28, 2023
From the austerity of Prada, to the absence of all ornamentation at Gucci, to a return to the essence for JW Anderson, Men's Fashion Week F/W 2023 appears to be an extreme attempt to flatten tastes and desires in the name of sellable innovations that all turn towards sobriety, minimalism, and clean design

As always, Club to Club is a good time to take live stock of the best of new global pop music-or "avant-pop."

Fantasy is a funny thing. It can ruin people’s consciousness, if they don’t know how to tame it. It can be cheap, not worth much, and no one can prevent you from using it anymore. You have the fantasy of crooked when you go around with a pulsating mind and contortionist legs; or better; when you want to be out, you’re always looking for past loves, and you cancelled everyone but yourself. But now I nail you down to your thoughts, that bunch of rags where you threw the old days, you’re always chasing what doesn’t exist. Dream away. Without fear.
