Parisian brand Pigalle presents their Spring/Summer 2014 collection with the release of a lookbook and video. The lookbook features a curated selection of the upcoming season’s wares in a palette of blue, white and black. Intricate marbling and random polka-dot prints form the main part of the collection, while silhouettes include bomber jackets, baseball shirts and T-shirts. Materials include silk, cotton and PVC for outerwear, with transparency a key theme for this season. Filmed during the brand’s Spring/Summer 2014 runway show, the video provides a more detailed look at the clothing.

Set to a bossa nova soundtrack, the video perfectly encapsulates the season’s laid-back style while showing off the garments.

Travelling around Israel, Palestine, the West Bank and Jordan, one group of interdisciplinary artists each captured different fragments of their life in the region on camera, focusing on daily rituals, the natural landscape and the people surrounding them rather than the scenes of battle favoured by newspapers. The result is a beautiful group of refreshing images taken not for the use of the media but for pleasure, showing the oddities and little sights otherwise neglected.
London-based studio MuirMcNeil have recently released four new digital typefaces and, to celebrate, four beautifully screen-printed specimen posters. The studio was set up in 2010 by Hamish Muir and Paul McNeil as a vehicle to explore parametric design systems – an algorithmic mode of design – within typography. The four faces draw on a variety of inspirations, many with historical foundations.
