Daphne Guinness Launches Second Album at London’s BFI IMAX

Album cover on BFI IMAX screen

Last night saw the launch of British fashion muse and musician Daphne Guinness ’ second album as Daphne and The Golden Chords, It’s a Riotat the BFI IMAX. As what can only be described as an extravagant homage, the heiress to Guinness – yes, the Irish stout – was the main focus of the night from the start to finish, complete with glass sculptures of the singer at the entrance and projections of her mirage covering the walls as drinks were served. As an air of nepotism swept the room, the event was bustling with friends and confidants of Daphne. From old rockers in leather jackets to big names in the fashion industry, the crowd was an eclectic mix of all ages, some of which wouldn’t have looked out of place 50 years ago.

Once ushered into the cinema for the screening with bags of popcorn, glasses of prosecco and merchandise, FAULT was treated to a sensory eye bath. With the help of Tony Visconti, the American record producer who helped the likes of Bowie and T. Rex, Daphne’s music – set to visuals created by artist Nick Knight – made an instant impact, leaving the audience mesmerised.

Over a collection of arty clips and kaleidoscopic visuals of the singer herself, the music poured out poppy, Lauper-esque hooks with ethereal lyrics taking influence from Marc Bolan and Bowie – Visconti definitely left his mark on the album. The self-proclaimed autobiographical record visits her recent near-death experience and her life as it has progressed in last few years. Using her classical training, penchant for poetry and love of Wagner (thanks to hours chatting with Bowie in the studio), Daphne has created her own unique style of glam rock – think a lot of spoken word and catchy repetition.

The unashamedly self-assured Daphne was soon interviewed on stage by music journalist Will Hodgkinson, who’s written for the likes of The Guardian and Vogue. However, as the Q&A progressed, her coquettish facade transformed into a timid, more vulnerable persona, speaking about her fears and anxieties both in her personal life and musical career, before mentioning her new relationship with her bandmates who are, of course, also big names in the music industry, including keyboard player Terry Miles.

The singer’s 80s-inspired sound and alias is a perfect partnership and, in Daphne’s own words, completes her world. Tour? She doesn’t know. But, if she does, make sure you bring your glitter platforms and leave the Guinness Toucan Tees at home.

MFW : WOODHOUSE

Words: Chaunielle Brown | Images: Liana Vine

The Woodhouse Army never fails to strike a nuclear and revolutionary chord with collection presentation. This season is no different. Designer Julian Woodhouse continues to surprise and  push the fashion boundaries for menswear while creating echoing staple statements that run concurrently with the society dailies we presently swim and endure in. Marked with traditional army fatigue and bomber jackets, splashed finishes of fur and liquid leather with baseball and beanie caps come strapped on for security. Accompanied by footed favorites, Dr Martens, Woodhouse advances on with strength and unity and encourages the commander in chief in us all. As Julian Woodhouse puts it, “Imagine if we viewed ourselves as a collective society. Imagine our possibilities…Imagine just how far our civilization could venture, together.”

Diesel release FAULTless ‘Go With The Flaw’ Campaign Video

 

Words: Miles Holder

While 2018 hasn’t gotten off to the most optimistic start, if you search hard enough, you can still find the good news meshed within the sea of dystopian updates. Today that update comes from Diesel’s ‘Embrace Your Flaws’ campaign. Celebrating the flaws that make us all unique, Diesel has followed on from their 2017 ‘Go With The Flaw’ campaign and once again enlisted director Francois Rousselet to create a beautiful, poignant yet still comical romance story.

In their own words “If in the first film we saw the perfectly flawed result of a rookie director’s attempt at making his first film, in this new episode, with irony and a good dose of carelessness, we show you what happens when you… Don’t go with the flaw? When, in fact, you do everything you can to hide the flaws in your life, chasing perfection as the world imposes, because common sense thinks that beauty is just another duty.”

To echo the words of FAULT Magazine Issue 23 cover star Alicia Keys, “Let go of the word “perfection”. It’s not real, and it’s a word that tears us down. There is no way to be perfect and no fun in being perfect.” And Diesel has hit the nail on the head with this new campaign video.

While it goes without saying that the campaign is commendable, a visual delight and more evidence of Diesel’s honest commitment to promoting self-love, the production team on ‘Embrace Your Flaws’ also deserve credit for sending such a poignant message without preaching. Sometimes humour is the best device to deliver an important message and judging by the number of shares this campaign has received; this is one of those times!

Check out the video below!

Brushing With Style Thanks To The UberSonic Club

 

I won’t patronise you; everyone understands how important oral hygiene is and why it’s essential for both your personal and professional life. What a lot of people fail to recognise is in fact just how important getting a good toothbrush is. Sure, sure, it’s all subjective, and there are so many on the market right now it’s hard to work out precisely what the best model to go for might be. I didn’t know the first place to start, so I decided to find one that would fit into my lifestyle first and go from there. 1) I travel a lot for work and I don’t like to spend my precious home time running to the shops to buy replacement toothbrush heads. 2) I work in fashion, and I have an affiliation for anything of good design, where do I turn? Enter, winner of the Red Dot Design Award 2016, ‘The Ubersonic.’

As a member of the Uber Sonic Club, in theory, you’ll never have to buy a toothbrush ever again. Anyone that owns an electric toothbrush can attest to their many benefits, but sadly, in turn, we can all also attest to the annoyance at running out to buy replacement heads every couple of months, leading to many of us simply neglecting to change them. With the Ubersonic, the all too common stress of hunting down a compatible replacement head on the high street is removed from the equation. After the initial purchase of the Ubersonic for the ludicrously low price of £19, every two months you’ll receive two more replacement heads for £9 direct to your door.

The toothbrush design is certainly deserving of its award-winning acclaim, the grip and overall presentation of the brush far outperform its price tag. Of course, The Ubersonic team have wanted to produce a toothbrush which is still competitive on the market so while they have opted for cost-effective materials they have not reigned in the design.

The brush heads use sonic vibrations at a rate of 35,000 times a minute to break down plaque and provide a far more significant feeling of clean than a standard manual brush. The vibrating mechanism allows the user to brush just as they would with a manual as opposed to oscillating models. Every thirty seconds, the toothbrush will emit a beeping sound to remind you that it’s time to switch from your upper set of teeth to the lower if you’re a zombie in the early hours, this makes for a gentle reminder.

Along with your first set of brushes, you’ll also receive an at-home tooth whitening kits. The at-home whitening package is similar to those you’ll find touted by all the top beauty bloggers on Instagram. Inside the pack, you’ll receive a mouth guard and whitening gel which you’ll need to mould to your teeth and then leave on for thirty minutes, all of which is far easier than it sounds and the results are pretty impressive.

Best of all with the model, you can cancel the subscription at any point without any fees. I’ve heard criticism that changing your toothbrush heads every month is excessive, and I’m inclined to agree; but with the free cancellation, there’s nothing stopping you from ending your subscription after two months and using the four heads throughout the rest of the year.

All in all, we were pleasantly surprised with the Uber Sonic. While there are improvements which can be made, namely in build quality and battery life (which despite claims, I found would only last three brushes), for the price you’re paying, you are receiving a great product. Where I do feel the Uber Sonic might fail, is in gauging the British public’s interest in a subscription model for toothbrushes. While there are many subscription boxes for a variety of male grooming products, I have yet to find anyone who has one set up for their toothbrush. Maybe Uber Sonic is here to change that, in the US there are already a plethora of companies already offering the service so maybe 2018 will see the UK consumer base joining in on all the fun. At a low price of £19, you’ll receive an electric toothbrush and whitening kit (the latter alone usually retails at £30), so we’d recommend picking up a start kit and seeing for yourself. As for me, I’ll be keeping my UberSonic subscription, it’s simpler and cheaper than what I’m currently spending, and as with most grooming subscriptions, it’s one less thing to worry about.
