Our love for Robyn up in FashionIndie is pretty damn fierce. And it just reached a new level with the making of her Indestructible video. If you’ve seen the music video, you’ll know it features what some might call soft-core erotica. So you might not have noticed that feat of architectural fashion that Robyn wears as she writhes and sings in a tubes of flowing colors. Those didn’t just make themselves. It was the brainchild of Australian designer Lucy McRae. She spent two years developing this technology as she worked to weave a dynamic textile from liquid, air and vapor. See how here:
Yesterday, Amy Winehouse was laid to rest in front of 200 friends and family. With heavy hearts we must accept that the beehived one has moved on to Club 27, and we are left with the legacy of her haunting voice. She cheated herself, like she knew she would. She told us she was trouble. But the thing is, we always knew that she was good. That said, listen to this acoustic version of You Know I’m No Good, and view her here at her prime. Maybe grab a kleenex first. Or a bottle of Jack.

The annual Pitchfork Music Festival was last weekend in Chicago, and great indie music wasn’t the only star of the show. As with every festival, there was loads of amazing street style worn by people from all over the country. It was difficult to choose, but here we have our favorite Pitchfork Music Fest looks for you to enjoy and be inspired by.
While Kanye West is rumored to be showing at NY Fashion Week, we know he’s now no stranger to fashion. For his epic-major-totally-saw-it-coming/already-started-happening on 1-11-11 collaboration with Jay-Z, the two commissioned Riccardo Tisci of Givenchy glory to create the album art. Unfortunately it doesn’t look like this:
Fortunately it looks like this:
Draco Malfoy, the sniveling
arch-nemesis prat-bully to Harry Potter, has signed a record contract. Or to put it slightly more accurately, the stunning Tom Felton can rap, and is taking it pro. Expect an album of English accented rapping. Listen to his first song here.

Twas a sad sad weekend in the world of music. The Big Man responsible for the phenomenally ’80s sax solos on Lady Gaga‘s Edge of Glory and Hair passed away on Saturday of a stroke at 69. Now, little monsters might recognize him most from the Edge of Glory music video that was just released on Thursday 6/16 (which now has about 6 and a half million views), but most of the world will remember Clarence Clemons as the saxophonist for Bruce Springsteen and E Street Band, since the very beginning. Springsteen fans are now tuning into Gaga to hear his last ever performances, his last live show ever being with Mother Monster on American Idol. Read through to find out how Gaga got Clemons to play for her, and watch him on the Edge of Glory.
Still in the throes of her Passion for “Judas”, I was caught unawares by Lady Gaga‘s latest video for “The Edge of Glory.” Most disarming is the video’s scaled-down approach; a decidedly less opulent production than her last two videos. Let’s see, there’s only one outfit – Versace (yet another surprise: nary a Mugler in sight), no throng of dancers and a simple set with only recently hospitalized E. Street Band saxophonist Clarence Clemons present. The song and accompanying video are a little Pat Benatar meets Samantha Fox with Gags’ usual helping of Madonna. Check out Gaga’s latest after the jump!
