How the Lo Lifes Feel About Ralph Lauren Collaborating With Palace

The Lo Lifes feel robbed.
The Brooklyn crew that used to steal, wear and sell Ralph Lauren in the Eighties is frustrated that the iconic American brand is working on a collection with Palace instead of them.
According to Willie Esco, who founded the Lo Life brand in 2016, which sells apparel online inspired by Ralph Lauren’s most iconic pieces, someone from Palace’s team reached out to get a blessing from members of the group. But most of the Lo Lifes, who skew older, weren’t familiar with Palace when it announced earlier this month via billboards in Tokyo and Instagram posts that it would be collaborating with the brand they’ve collected, the designer they’ve worshiped and the clothes they’ve helped popularize in urban communities for more than 30 years.
“Look at what Gucci did with Dapper Dan. Ralph should have did [sic] something like that with the Lo Lifes,” said Esco, referring to Gucci-backed efforts to reopen Daniel Day’s Harlem store and atelier, which shut down in 1992. “I wasn’t shocked by the decision. It will generate great sales, but it feels like a money grab from both sides and dilutes what they are all about.”

First Lady Melania Trump Makes an Entrance at Blenheim Palace Wearing a Yellow J. Mendel Gown

First Lady Melania Trump made a dramatic entrance wearing a pale yellow J. Mendel gown at tonight’s black-tie dinner at Blenheim Palace.
The evening host British Prime Minister Theresa May also appeared to take the dress code seriously, wearing a sleeveless red gown with a noticeably high slit. Her husband, Philip, like President Trump, kept things basic in a traditional tuxedo.
A different version of FLOTUS’ pleated dress was available in J. Mendel’s Madison Avenue store this spring in another shade. At the request of the First Lady’s stylist Herve Pierre, the label’s designer Gilles Mendel created one especially for tonight’s dinner at the country estate that was Winston Churchill’s birthplace. The choice of pale yellow, a favorite color of Queen Elizabeth II, was intentional and was meant to “pay homage” to HRH, according to Pierre.
The Trumps, joined by the Mays, ascended the red-carpeted steps of Blenheim Palace to two-folded fanfare — protests outside the palace and a military ceremony featuring a performance of the “Liberty Fanfare” by bands of the Scots, Irish and Welsh guards. A three-course meal will be served to guests, who include a number of prominent British business leaders. After the dinner, the Trumps will travel to the U.S.

Kensington Palace Releases Three Royal Wedding Photos, Shot at Windsor

ALL SMILES: Three royal wedding photos shot by Alexi Lubomirski have been released by Kensington Palace following Saturday’s nuptials at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor.
Two of the photos were taken in The Green Drawing Room at Windsor Castle following the post-ceremony carriage procession around the town. A third photo, a black-and-white shot of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex alone, was taken on the East Terrace of Windsor Castle.
“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex would like to thank everyone who took part in the celebrations of their wedding on Saturday. They feel so lucky to have been able to share their day with all those gathered in Windsor and also with all those who watched the wedding on television across the U.K., Commonwealth and around the world,” the palace said.
Lubomirski said shooting the wedding and the engagement photos last year “has been a beautiful chapter in my career and life that I will happily never forget.” Lubomirski added that he was honored to document the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s “inspiring journey of love, hope and family.”
Two of the photos show the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex, their immediate family and members of the wedding party, including Princess Charlotte and

Jewelry Robbed from the Doge’s Palace in Venice

THE ITALIAN JOB: Venice’s Palazzo Ducale museum, or Doge’s Palace, was robbed on Wednesday morning, during visiting hours.
The theft took place during the last day of the “Treasures of the Mughals and the Maharajas: the Al Thani collection” exhibition, which opened back in September. Retracing five centuries of Indian jewelry art, the exhibit was showcased for the first time in Italy displaying nearly 300 pieces from the precious collection assembled by His Highness Sheikh Hamad bin Abdullah Al Thani, a member of the Qatari royal family.
According to Italian media reports, two unidentified thieves stole a valuable brooch and a pair of earrings, forcing the glass display in which they were showcased. The duo blended in with the rest of the visitors and had about a minute to exit the venue after the robbery before the alarm went off. The space was then closed to permit further investigation, but the thieves were already on the go.
Italian authorities have started investigations, analyzing the images from the security cameras in the area, which show a person operating directly and putting the stolen jewelry in his pocket while another acted as the lookout, covering him.
The value of the robbery has not been quantified yet,

The Big 4: Kensington Palace Releases Birthday Portrait of Prince George

GETTING OLDER: Prince George has turned four, and Kensington Palace has released a portrait of the royal dressed in a collarless blue and white pin-striped shirt by Amaia.
Chris Jackson — the husband of Kate Middleton’s personal assistant Natasha Archer — took the photo in June at Kensington Palace. The tot recently joined his family on a weeklong official tour of Poland and Germany aimed at smoothing relations with Europe as Brexit negotiations begin.
His wasn’t the only picture that made headlines in the U.K. over the weekend. Princes William and Harry have shared three personal photos from Princess Diana’s album that will be featured in the 90-minute documentary “Diana, Our Mother: Her Life and Legacy.”
The film, produced by Oxford Film and Television, has been made to mark the 20th anniversary of Diana’s death in August. It looks at her family life and public service, and will air on ITV on July 24.
In one photo, a young Prince Harry is pictured smiling as his mother hugs him, while another shows Diana holding Prince William in her arms while she’s pregnant with Harry. The princes will also be taking part in a BBC documentary about Diana and plan to unveil a statue of

Young Royals Host Tea Party at Buckingham Palace

TEA TIME AT BUCKINGHAM PALACE: The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge joined Prince Harry to host a children’s tea party at Buckingham Palace on Saturday.
The young royals planned the event to honor 850 children of parents in the British Armed Forces who died in battle. Called “Party at the Palace,” there was a series of live performances, mounted stalls and games across the sprawling lawns.

Kate Middleton, Prince William and Prince Harry met with children, their parents and guardians.
Middleton wore a long sleeve lace See by Chloé dress and LK Bennett heels. She wore the same dress during her royal tour of Canada last year.

Earlier this week, the duchess embarked on a one-day, solo trip to Luxembourg on behalf of Britain’s Foreign and Commonwealth Office.The young royal attended the commemoration of the 1867 Treaty of London, which confirmed that country’s independence and neutrality.

Palace Opens First U.S. Store

In the middle of Palace’s new New York flagship there’s a bronze cherub-like sculpture holding a “P” and urinating into a P-shaped pool of water. On its Instagram account, Palace, a popular streetwear brand based in London, identified the structure as a fountain of youth and a temple of pea pea.
This type of humor is intrinsic to Palace Skateboards, which was founded by Lev Tanju in 2014, and the fountain is Instagram bait for the young crowd — people started to gather at 49 Howard Street on Thursday afternoon in anticipation of the store opening on Friday morning.

Company officials declined to comment about the store and its entry into the American market.
About an hour before the shop opened at 11 a.m., things were civilized and a sizable line of shoppers snaked down Mercer Street — at one point the crowd erupted in excitement when YouTube star Casey Neistat skateboarded down the block. Then the store opened and disorder ensued, so much so that the New York City Police Department had to close down the shop and turn away customers.
“Palaceskateboards should have had a system in place for something like this. [It] could have taken people’s names down or something. [I] waited in the

Palace to Open New York Store

Palace is making its way to New York.
The skate brand, which is headquartered in London, took to Instagram to post a cryptic video earlier this week with the date “5.5.17” spinning against a city backdrop. And today the brand confirmed it would open in New York with another Instagram video featuring Jonah Hill, a Chihuahua, a robot and a dancing Palace logo.
Palace was founded by former skater Lev Tanju in 2009. Tanju opened a London shop in 2015 and he’s created a strong following with his graphic logo and collaborations with brands including Adidas and Reebok.

Guerrilla Warfare: The San Francisco International Hip Hop Dancefest at the Palace of Fine Arts

2014-11-18-GroovMekanex_Ceination.jpg

Closing night of the 16th annual San Francisco International Hip Hop Dance Fest opened to the classic groove of The Police in a bleak, reflective mood – “when the world is running down, you make the best of what’s still around” – to which the five classy gentlemen of GroovMekanex in denim-blue button downs and white hats responded in crisp and witty style. The other local acts on this program did not fare quite so well, largely eclipsed by the imported talent.

Curated by legend-in-her-own-time Micaya, the festival takes hip-hop out of its customary competitive arena and on to the stage of the Palace of Fine Arts – which might sound like an incongruous setting for a gritty street art form, but the packed house on Sunday night hollered their appreciation as if we were all hanging out together on the corner of Mission and 24th scoping out a sidewalk battle.

2014-11-18-BoogieMelikaDez.jpg

Ensemble performances were punctuated by two brilliant solo turns, both from Los Angeles: the first by the feisty Toogie-saurus (Teresa Toogie Barcelo) who channelled Nina Simone and the searing saxophone of the late great King Curtis in “I Put a Spell on You,” the second by the masterful Boogie Frantick to a hypnotic score by Flume and Chet Faker. Frantick’s silky moves – whether embodying ocean waves in silhouette against a backdrop lit sea-blue, or a graffiti artist using invisible walls and his own body as a canvas – and his brilliant stop-motion achieve a poetry that touches on tragedy as easily as it does the lighter side of romantic infatuation in No Diggity (“baby, you’re a perfect 10”).

Sacramento’s Greathouse of Dance (G.H.D.) boasted some impossibly young talent strutting their stuff like far more seasoned artists, with no narrative or props, and no costumes – apart from some formidable armor sported by the final quintet – just the moves straight out of the studio and off the street. They made it all look easy, didn’t take themselves too seriously, with flashes of brilliance.

2014-11-18-_ELI2451.JPG

Storytelling by the other ensembles proved a decidedly mixed bag. San Francisco’s Funkanometry tried to convey the angst of life in an asylum (both literal and figurative, according to program notes) but the army of young women in white, with painted faces that looked like the makeup artist from Twilight had a seizure halfway through the job, did not seem to have been given coherent persona to convey, and mostly came across as a bunch of hysterical teenagers emoting.

2014-11-18-_ELI4005.JPG

The four bewitching goddesses of Zamounda Crew, from Paris, went through a breakneck series of costume changes in their roguish attempt to skewer the French obsession with haute couture, but were ultimately at their most powerful in street clothes.

2014-11-18-EmbodimentProjectJamesKnox.jpg

2014-11-18-_ELI3306.JPG

Despite the welcome presence of three singers onstage, and the rousing athleticism of five bare-chested dancers, Oakland’s Embodiment Project tribute to African American male victims of hate crimes and racial profiling fell somewhat flat. The names of Michael Brown, Trayvon Martin and Oscar Grant inscribed on the dancers’ jeans and the heartfelt rendition of Gregory Porter’s politically charged “1960 What?” about the 1967 Detroit riots made an obvious point, as did tired tropes like fists in the air, but the choreography meandered aimlessly.

2014-11-18-Ritmos2_Age_ncia_Espetaculum.jpg

2014-11-18-Ritmos_Age_ncia_Espetaculum.jpg

In sharp contrast was the buildup of tension by the Brazilian Ritmos Family in their taut and mesmerizing “Fusion of Move.” Ritmos’ five male dancers integrate martial arts and contemporary dance moves seamlessly into the hip-hop vernacular to create images of desperation and hope. The result conveys not just attitude, but hints at backstories and a compelling narrative of transformation.

2014-11-18-_ELI3685.JPG

London’s BirdGang Dance Company told an equally striking tale in “Vice,” an Orwellian nightmare in which an office worker struggles to escape from his desk but finds himself glued to it in bizarre fashion. Once free, he is persecuted by hooded figures to the ominous buzz and throb of a score that melds electronic music with Tom Waits, horror film composer Christopher Young, and Radiohead. A lovely nymph (the luminous Kendra Horsburgh) hovers, in a spotlight, always out of the young man’s reach. Lit cigarettes and cigarette smoke blown with admirable precision by the malignant spirits add further menace to the intense, dramatic choreography. Remarkably, the entire piece echoes one of the three sculpted panels of the Grecian frieze that encircles the rotunda of the Palace of Fine Arts, entitled “The Struggle for the Beautiful”: Art, embodied by a beautiful nude woman, stands in the center while idealists struggle against the materialists, conceived as centaurs, who seek to crush Art.

2014-11-18-Struggle_for_the_Beautiful.jpg

2014-11-18-_ELI2933.JPG

BirdGang’s triumph did not entirely make up for the misbegotten spectacle of Mind Over Matter’s portrayal of an Amsterdam bordello. Choreographers today are marvelously adept at fusing all manner of dance styles with hip-hop – why not burlesque? But this literal, ham-fisted exhibition of ladies in pleather, garters, sparkly bras and stiletto heels prancing about and servicing two hapless gentlemen under the watchful eye of a platinum blond-plaited, whip-wielding madam was conceived without a trace of irony, subverting the considerable power of hip-hop to convey righteous, youthful anger and rebellion.

2014-11-18-_ELI2856.JPG

This piece ranks with the insidious MTV evangelism, propagated by the likes of Beyoncé, Rihanna, Madonna et al who persuade their fans that images of semi-clad women gyrating and fondling themselves on stage and on camera somehow empowers all women. That many in the audience roared at the overt depictions of ladies of the night performing oral sex on johns while in the splits, and then receiving oral gratification from the men while doing headstands in the splits, merely suggests that they (audience) have not fully explored the array of adult channels offered by their local cable providers. Ballet to the People imagined the graceful statues of Weeping Women – another extraordinary ornament of the Palace of Fine Arts that stand guard at each corner of the Palace’s Corinthian columns – shedding copious tears on Sunday night at the leaden, unfunny female objectification.

2014-11-18-PoFAWeeping_1788.jpg

If Mind Over Matter was shooting for satire or parody, towering examples can be found in the dance scenes in 1966’s Sweet Charity, choreographed and directed by Bob Fosse, the 1969 film of which the creators and the otherwise terrific performers of Mind Over Matter might find illuminating.

Inevitable, perhaps, that an ambitious festival that unites troupes with such disparate backgrounds and manifestos will present unevenly. Hip-hop is indisputably the most potent dance form on the planet today, the most likely engine of artistic revolution, and while the battlefronts must be diverse, what Micaya and other guerrillas around the world are doing to infiltrate opera houses and concert halls is essential to winning the war.
