You might know by now how much French Dj Yuksek loves doing remixes, and that has been proven many times. Besides bringing to the world his own tracks in which he invests a lot of his time – his latest album took him about two years to full completion, the DJ gives his own flavor to quality tracks of various artists aligned with the vibe. Same happened today, when a new remix was released, this time on one of the tracks from Bertrand Burgalat, French producer & songwriter. This new remix hasn’t touched much from Burgalat’s style, keeping the beauty of the original track, but making it sound more modern and energized.
French Electro duo Juveniles are adding a new MV to their latest album Without Warning, this time for the track Comfort Girl, a collaborative work they did with singer and VJ Helen Feng. Feng not only dives into the lyrics of the track with her earthy voice, but she’s also acting in the visuals for the music video, alongside Juveniles members. The track is sensual, slowly captivating you into a pleasant trance. Together with Someone Better and Decoy, this recent MV adds a much-needed dose of creativity for the public to know more about the band style.

Alexis Mabille skipped the classic fashion display and assembled its Couture collection for Fall-Winter 2018 into an exhibition, in parallel working a video presentation acting as a fashion show, in which the designer showcased its entire collection in the absence of an audience.
There’s only a handful of elements building this collection, yet the result is stunning, precisely thanks to how the designer worked with so little. The fabrics and colors are great but greater are the shape and style. Dense ruffles, embroidery and magnificent sleeves are used for making the long silhouettes look highly sophisticated.Embed from Getty Images Embed from Getty Images
At the Grand Palais in Paris, on July 5, the atmosphere in the enormous stage had already been set before the defile by Karl Lagerfeld’s decision to present Chanel’s Couture collection in a very Parisian manner, and for that, he placed deck chairs in the shadow of an Eiffel Tower replica, lightly clouded at the top. The first sight of Couture started on Mario Batkovic’s ‘Restrictus’, who set the tone for the music that played throughout the show.Embed from Getty Images
Looking at the clothes, I get a Merry Poppins feel, starting from the very first outfit. The hats, the shoes and the shape of the clothes, all send you on a playful journey that’s meant to be a secret, camouflaged by a rather serious attitude, especially given the lack of details that’s dominating the beginning of the show. Even after that, there’s an abstinence that’s happening, compensated only by feathers placed in the least expected places and big flowers playing out as pampered hems. Sleeves and high boots receive the same treatment, a manner that creates quite an image. Sparkling fabrics suddenly change the mood set at the beginning and with that the collection triumphs into the elegant and highly sophisticated Chanel garment.Embed from Getty Images
The front row meant names like Kristen Stewart, Julian Moore, Kaya Scodelario (finally!), Nana Komatsu, Tilda Swinton and many other. After the show, Karl Lagerfeld received the Medaille Vermeille de la Ville de Paris by the city mayor, Anne Hidalgo.Embed from Getty Images
Although a rare treat for fans and public, Daft Punk is making sure their craft touches the face of Earth once in a while, through music collaborations that land literally out of the blue. Same happened with their most recent music deed, where the French duo partnered up with fresh face Australian band Parcels to create a summer appropriate tune, and so they have.
Parcels has been more outspoken on the release, mentioning Daft Punk as being the producer of the track and themselves as co-producer. To be frank, although at first it may seem so random why Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem Christo have decided to work with a band that has popped out of nowhere, if you have a listen to some of their craft, you can hear the similarity, which I’m sure Daft Punk loved.
The lyrics keep you guessing but is the title that gives a better clue to what’s happening, and yet there is no certainty. You can only keep on dancing to the perfect blend of Daft Punk’s electronic style and Parcels’ outspoken feel.
