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 is excited to say that after a 10 year hiatus, No Doubt, has reunited to record their 6th studio album, due September 25. We’re so happy to know that the band is back together, singer Gwen Stefani, bassist Tony Kanal, guitarist Tom Dumont and drummer Adrian Young.
It’s been said that the album titled Push & Shove has reggae, Jamaican street style sound and feel to it. The album also features collaborations with genius producers such as, Major Lazer and Jamaican artist Busy Signal.
No Doubt, the band whose music provided the soundtrack to much of the ’90s, just released “Settle Down,” the first single from the album. Gwen-Stefani’s rhymes and sing-along-friendly choruses are catchy as always. The single will have devoted fans reminiscing their favorite No Doubt songs like “Just a Girl” and “Spiderwebs.”
The new music video to “Settle Down” premiered today at 8:00PM EST. Here’s the link.
Now, let’s rock out with No Doubt’s newest, shall we? We sure did…
Last night Particle attended GenArt’s summer screening of ‘Hit & Run’ staring Dax Shepard, Kristen Bell, Tom Arnold and Bradley Cooper. The movie debuted at the Downtown Independent Theater in Los Angeles.
Charlie Bronson (Shepard), a former bank-robbing getaway driver, busts out of the Witness Protection Program in order to help his girlfriend (Bell) get to Los Angeles to seize a once-in-a-lifetime employment opportunity. Tipped off by his girlfriend’s former boyfriend, Charlie’s past crooked cohorts (led by Cooper) and a United States Marshal (Arnold) chase after them. The film was naughty, romantic and cunningly witty. Check this film out when the movie hits box offices August 24th.
The GenArt Screening Series supports one of GenArt’s longest established events, the 17th Annual GenArt Film Festival. The festival will take place on August 8-14 in New York City at the School of Visual Arts Theater, and supports evolving filmmakers and talent. Particle Arts Entertainment is proud to announce that we will be helping the GenArt team produce the festival this year!
We had a great time last night and want to thank GenArt for the invitation!
The Annenberg Space for Photography’s website includes a disclaimer to visitors of the Who Shot Rock & Roll art exhibit. In bolded text it warns: “Please be aware that some of the photographs and films in Who Shot Rock & Roll contain graphic imagery and language — including drug use, nudity, profanity, sexual content, and violence.” That’s rock and roll baby!
The L.A. exhibit features 166 prints from photographers such as Dennis Hopper, Bob Gruen, Diane Arbus, Lynn Goldsmith, David LaChapelle, Ryan McGinley, and more, as well as an original and exclusive documentary that explores the unique power and role of photography, and its adventuresome camera wielders, in the creation and explosion of musical geniuses.
Photographs of John Lennon in his famed New York City cut-off tee, Dylan besieged by frenzied fans, Tupac Shakur’s noir tattoos, plus prints of Elvis, Sonic Youth, Tina Turner, Radiohead, and more will be displayed, and the effects that the iconic images have had on music, fans, and culture itself will be explored.
For a taste, watch the teaser trailer below. The show opened this past weekend and will hold residence until early October. Definitely try and check this out before then!
Justin Vernon, of Bon Iver, can now add shoe designer to his resume. We couldn’t be more thrilled.
His love for the outdoors is prominent in his music, and it’s also evident in his limited-edition shoes created with L.A. based shoe company, Keep. The Ramos-style shoe comes in a pale salmon hue with herringbone accents. Across the toes is a black fishbone detail and according to Keep’s website, the sneakers are kitten-friendly.
We think the cool sneakers will fit in just fine while wandering festival grounds. Or, if you aren’t attending the great music festivals coming up, you could at least take some pretty inspiring Instagram pics of your new laces.
The best part is, you don’t have to feel guilty about dropping 75 bucks on the star-studded sneaks, because a portion of the proceeds benefit the Best Friends Animal Society, an advocacy group which operates the nation’s largest sanctuary for abused and abandoned animals. Score!
We attended the MTV Movie Awards this year at the Gibson Amphitheater and saw Kristen Stewart make out with herself for the the Best Kiss Award. Boring! This is MTV, girl, we needed to see better! We were completely stoked on Johnny Depp who received the 2012 Generation Award and accompanied our friends, The Black Keys, for an amazing musical number. Speaking of musical numbers, the band FUN. gave a “fun” performance with the cute and talented Janelle Monae. We also loved Emma Stone’s heartfelt acceptance speech for this year’s Trailblazer Award, thanking her own idols, John Candy, Gilda Radner, Charlie Chaplin, The Beatles, J.D. Salinger, Lorne Michaels, Cameron Crowe, and our personal favorite Mr. Bill Murray, urging young people to try and be their true, unique selves. Go Emma!
After the show we attended the MTV Movie Awards Post Party at the Universal Studios lot and munched on great food, listened to some tunes, danced, mingled and shared some laughs with the down-to-earth guys, Blake, Adam and Anders from the hilarious Comedy Central show, Workaholics.
