“Lights, lights, lights!” Tell me I’m not the only one that’s had Ellie Goulding’s hit, ‘Lights’, replaying in my head for the past several months!
Her second album ‘Halcyon’ debuted just yesterday and we are super excited to listen to it, while preparing ourselves for more of her songs to loop in our heads!
Here’s the video to her first single off her new album called ‘Anything could happen’.
It’s Friday and we are starting off the weekend with music videos we love!
The Big Pink- Velvet
The Black Keys- Little Black Submarines
Calvin Harris ft. Florence Welch- Sweet Nothing
Particle wants to wish Gwen Stefani a Happy Birthday! The gorgeous fashion icon and lead singer of the band, No Doubt, is turning 43 today. Can you believe it?! She still looks absolutely amazing and with their new album, Push and Shove, and tour coming out this year, there’s going to be more Gwen Stefani in our lives! Not complaining here!
This year’s Emmys was a night full of red carpet glamour and today’s biggest television stars. With all of those big stars and personalities in one place, we were excited to see what craziness and memorable moments were going to occur. Moments like Tracy Morgan passing out onstage to Amy Poehler and Julia Louis-Dreyfus “accidentally” switching their acceptance speeches, and Sofia Vergara’s wardrobe malfunction just minutes before going on! But don’t worry, these were only skits. Well, except for Sofia Vergara’s incident. That was real, but she took it like a trooper and we loved that she posted it on Twitter to laugh it off.
The night’s biggest winners were the new cable drama ‘Homeland’ and of course, the hit comedy ‘Modern Family’. There were also various wins from other popular shows like ‘Breaking Bad’ and ‘Two and a Half Men”. So many good shows and so little time to watch them!
We wanted to share our mania for some of the dresses at NYFW right now. We have been “goo goo ga ga” over it and wanted everyone to take part in our recent obsessions that have us practically drooling. Seriously….
Almost every look is surreal and they remind us of a modern day, working girl fairy. As always, the eveningwear was stunning, we look forward to seeing on the red carpet come awards season, and impeccable craftsmanship. The color story is complete perfection. We can’t get over it. Really can’t.
Carolina Herrera is a strong favorite at Particle because she consistently reinforces old school femininity and glamour and turns out beautiful collections filled with beautiful pieces, that we could never stop obsessing over. The collection left a little room for with the pops of neon orange and yellow in all the looks.
The use of color blocking was executed so well in this Spring/Summer 2013 collection. The looks had beautiful vivid hues such as turquoise, blue, yellow, bright peach, soft orange, pale blue and metallic. Two words to describe the collection are soft and flowing. We just love it!
Particle went to see the “indie supergroup” Divine Fits last night for their record release show at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. Then sped off to arrange their after party at the, always fun, Harvard & Stone. The band consists of Spoon’s Britt Daniel, Wolf Parade’s Dan Boeckner and Sam Brown of the Ohio punk band New Bomb Turks. The LA Times describes their album as “you can hear the pleasure Daniel’s taking from the freewheeling sound of “A Thing Called Divine Fits,” which further destabilizes Spoon’s solid-state groove; it’s basically a kind of haunted goth-garage record, complete with an affectionate cover of “Shivers” by Nick Cave’s first band, the Boys Next Door.“ Divine Fits’ debut album, “A Thing Called Divine Fits,” hit the stores today.

GenArt is having their annual Film Festival in New York August 8-14. And guess who will be there working and rocking? The Particle Arts team. GenArt is one of our dearest clients and we are so excited to work this amazing event with them.
Ok, so this is the breakdown of the festival. 7 premiers, 7 parties. 7 short films, 7 features. One short film, one feature premiere, per night. Each short film shares the red carpet experience and is presented in front of that night’s feature which we think is pretty neat. And then comes the after party.
We are so excited to finally get to see these amazing films premiere. We’ve been eating and breathing this festival for weeks and now we get to experience it and meet some pretty awesome people.
We will be updating and posting pictures of the event from New York. So be on the look out!
Mean while, here’s a link to GenArt Film Fest. Here you can see the line up and watch the trailers.
