Random Memoriesby Eyal de Leeuw | 21.05.13
“Random Access Memories“, Daft Punk’s fourth studio album, is on loop. The Garconniere is tired of reading the critics and hearing the buzz. It was never all about the music, anyway, and their space songs were always wrapped in astronaut suits, offering a way out of this world.
Or is it the zeitgeist, part of the new (old) wave of space age look that dominated Paris menswear for AW2013? Following Issey Miake and his gold and silver parkas, Kris Van Assche’s Dior plastic bands around his tech-fabric suits, Mugler’s futuristic looks – many designers adopted a modern take on the “new look”, using new materials and techniques to protect men.
Like the legend of the phoenix
All ends with beginnings
What keeps the planet spinning
The force from the beginning
We’ve come too far to give up who we are
