Bent it like Quinten

We received many compliments about our latest show models. Most of the attention went to the very handsome Quinten Bent from Tony Jones Model Management. Of course we were not surprised. Quinten has been rocking several international runways this season and we were very proud to have him.

Radikale Maskerade (art baby)

Get your groove on, get your fix on, get your affordable art tonight in the Chiellerie in Amsterdam, from 18:00 till 22:00. The Chiellerie is the gallery of our former night mayer Chiel van Zelst. Cool dude. Tonight Eva Bartels, Lisa Love Smidt, Dim Balsem, Roxanne Dekker and Alljan Moehamad will be putting up the a 'radical masquerade' in this place. So come and join us. 

Rutger @ Ulla models

Only a few male models make it to the top. Here's a Dutch guy from Ulla models called Rutger who's getting hot within the scene. Just did Dazed and Confused, Wallpaper, Citizen K and he's definately hungy for more. If the skinny androgynous trend for male models lasts, he will be huge within next year. Mark these words.

Here are some snaps of Rutger:

Who's Leonie Kuipers?

Leonie Kuipers is working as a freelance modern dance teacher and choreographer. Recently she is busy with her new project: The Mirror of Broken Time.  In this installation which she made in collaboration with techartist Matthias Oostrik and actress Laura de Boer, live images are reflected in a kaleidoscopic collage of body parts and movements.  On the 18th of September a short piece of this project will be performed at Palais Paradiso

Independent Shopping

We love taking pictures of nice people. Especially when they purchase OntFront clothes at the Independent Fashion store. And even more especially when the look good in them.

Puma Suede Classics launch

To celebrate the launch of the new Puma Suede Classics, Parisian artist Eddek has been commissioned to throw up a host of mural pieces throughout Amsterdam and Antwerp. Using the AKINDAGANG crew as inspiration, the twelve well-known, talented artists from Puma's Dutch-Belgian creative network are transformed into life-size canvases with each member rocking a pair of Puma Suede Classics. An up-to-date map showing the street gallery's changing location can be found here. Today all paintings were assembled in one place, and Puma opened its temporary gallery with a kick-off party in the former X-rated movie theater Blue Boy/Why Not (Nieuwezijdse Voorburgwal 28/30) in the heart of Amsterdam.

The temporary gallery will also house a shop selling the new Puma Suede Classics line. Additionally, several smaller events have been planned, highlighting the connection with the Puma brand and the inspiring New York art world of the 1970s and 1980s. The gallery and Puma Suede Classic shop will remain open through to September 3rd.

Avant la lettre

Titus has the coolest surname ever for a certified 24-7 party animal. Zeldenrust (never rest). Besides that this guy rocks extremely hard on the drums. His ultra fashionable band is called Avant la lettre. We' re quite hooked on their track No procedure that fits. Here's Titus on the drums:

Is art just a pile of shit?

When we heard that American artist Paul McCarthy put a gigantic pile of dog shit somewhere in Utrecht we decided that it was worth taking a look. We went and we witnessed... A pile of shit it was. I tried to make an intelligent face just to make sure that other visitors wouldn't notice that I didn't understand shit about art.

Here's an impressive piece of art by Russian painter Tatjana Korchagina. It looks smashing in our pop up store, so we'd rather not sell it. ;-) Check out her myspace here for more info.

Models with brains

We're so proud of our dearest friend Dorith Mous. This lovely lady is working her tiny ass off as a model at Ulla Models and she's doing it well.

But a pretty face is not the only gift Dorith was born with. She's also a fantastic singer and a great photographer. Check out the pictures she takes during her travels around the globe. You can see more of these on her blog.
