This pioneering film was created by combining the visions of two directors; Nick Knight and Rei Nadal. It features fashion by over 30 different London designers including Meadham Kirchhoff, Shrimps, Ryan Lo and Christopher Kane and explores the trend for overt, almost cartoonish femininity and girlishness. The film was funded by the BFC Fashion Film initiative, which is sponsored by River Island.

Rei Kawakubo has long challenged modern French fashion. For A/W 16 she looked to the 18th century, capturing its revolutionary spirit with frills, furbelows and rich fairy-tale florals.

Sparked by the arrival of 'Savage Beauty' in London, Nick Knight and the SHOWstudio team set about opening up his archive, searching for unused and unseen footage from his collaborations with Alexander McQueen. Sitting alongside our 'Unseen McQueen' series, this Knight film - made with help from Younji Ku and Jon Emmony - features video shot in 2010 for the tribute film, 'To Lee, With Love, Nick.'

Extracting moments from the minimal choreography orchestrated by Christos Papadopoulos, Nick Knight's film expands space and time. Art directed by Younji Ku, Ion sees Papadopoulos's ten dancers creating negative space in the echoes of their individual movements. The film explores group behaviour and the concept of the individual's role in a community. Opposing the reductive appearance of the dance piece, Knight's film displays the ways in which repetitive motion reveals new ways of inhabiting space.

ROLL OUT THE FUTURE OLED TV R9, The Rollable OLED: A Revolutionary TV

The Rollable OLED opens a new horizon of the future of TV . The product is coming as an actual product in 2019.

This Revolutionary TV, unveiled at CES 2019, will deliver a new sense of life with its leading-edge technology. The screen disappears without a trace, only leaving behind a true piece of art.

Featuring a revolutionary rollable OLED display, the new LG TV R can hide itself into a base like a digital scroll from the future.

The display at CES featured rollable TVs in a format similar to what you might have in your living room in the future (though you might have just one, rather than five next to each other). We already had a taste of this model at CES 2018, and one of the most interesting features was its ability to change size with the touch of the button.

Interior designers hate large TVs, and rightfully so: most of the time they’re just huge black frames that disrupt a carefully balanced setting, battling for space with other non-flat and better-looking pieces of furniture. LG’s new TV R, just unveiled at CES 2019, might be the right solution for such an annoying first-world problem: thanks to LG’s flexible OLED technology, the 65” TV R’s screen can roll itself into a nicely designed sideboard-like base, to be un-rolled only when needed to actually watch TV.

Even when the screen is completely tucked away, the base can play music and understand voice commands. After teasing a prototype of the TV R last year, LG announced this week that it will hit the shelves next spring.

You can adjust the aspect ratio to allow for specific cinematic experiences, with Full View, Line View and Zero View options. With full view, you can see the full extent of contrast, depth and realism which is standard with all LG TVs.

You can also get support from Amazon Alexa and even with Apple AirPlay 2 and HomeKit. Line View, meanwhile, show things like the time, mood, music selections and even frame mode which shows your favourite photos. Or, you can let the TV roll all the way into the box and forget it even exists with Zero view.

World Premier : Frankfurt International Motor Show (September 2017)

Gregory Guillaume, chief designer for Kia Motors Europe, commented: “With many European drivers now seeking performance alternatives to the three-door hot hatch, we began thinking about a different halo model for the cee’d family.

“The Proceed Concept represents a bold new vision of how the vibrant soul of the pro_cee’d could be reincarnated and revitalised for a new generation of performance-oriented drivers.”

A high-performance statement in aesthetics, the Proceed Concept is striking from any angle. The interior is designed with the future in mind, with a luxurious and stylish cockpit playing host to a full suite of advanced features designed to enrich your driving experience. It isn’t all about the looks though; the extended hot hatch is meant to maximize functionality. The athletic appearance is enhanced by other sensory experiences that extend even to the driver’s sense of smell; it is a truly stunning vehicle in every way.

Frankfurt, 7 September 2017 – Kia Motors has revealed new images of the Proceed Concept. Kia’s new concept car makes its world debut at the 2017 Frankfurt International Motor Show on 12 September.

Designed at Kia’s European design centre in Frankfurt, just 500 metres from where it will be unveiled, the Proceed Concept indicates what the next-generation cee’d could look like.

The concept presents a new body type for Kia. The extended hot hatch retains the athleticism of the current pro_cee’d model, while combining its striking visual presence with a dash of real-world versatility. Reworked and reimagined for a new generation of driver, it puts forward a bold vision for a potential member of the next-generation cee’d family.

Low, lean and lithe, the Proceed Concept’s rakish roofline, muscular proportions and compact footprint hint at its outright agility. The silhouette of the car is complemented by a series of distinctive design cues. A dynamic window frame follows the roofline to the rear tailgate, while the striking ‘Sharkblade’ in the bodywork, complete with GT logo, reinforces its lack of B-pillars. Lateral strakes exaggerate the Proceed Concept’s slim waistline and lend an air of muscularity to the rear of the car. It runs on six-spoke aluminium alloy wheels, 20 inches in diameter.

Where daytime running lights have become a key element in a car’s identity, the Proceed Concept uses light in other ways. The concept features a ‘Luminline’ – an illuminated outline of the car’s glasshouse that greets drivers as they approach the car. This serves as a powerful nocturnal visual identifier for the Proceed Concept, highlighting its fastback shape. The concept’s dramatic roofline flows into a tailgate characterised by its stacked air vents, and the rippled surface of a rear light strip inspired by molten ferromagnetic metal.

Its stance and proportions may be new, but the Proceed Concept features many of Kia’s now familiar design motifs. The iconic ‘tiger nose’ grille, the sculpted ‘island’ bonnet inspired by the Stinger, the castellated windscreen, the full-length roof glazing, and Kia’s inimitable mix of curvaceous sheetmetal and taut creases. Each element singles out the Proceed Concept as a truly modern Kia.

The concept is finished in bespoke ‘Lava Red’ paintwork. This has been created by combining multiple hand-applied layers of black, chrome-effect silver, and red-tinted lacquer for a glossy, lustrous paint finish.

Kia will unveil the Proceed Concept on 12 September on the Kia stand, located in Hall 9 of the Frankfurt Messe exhibition centre.
