One of this year’s most talked about new anime series is Attack on Titan. It’s not only talked about, though. The show is apparently inspiring a new photo meme in Japan.
Originally a manga, Attack on Titan tells the story of a wall city that’s being attacked by human-eating giants. The anime’s opening is utterly mental, and it’s inspiring all sorts of video parodies.

- Sam, a 7-lb rhesus monkey is prepared for his flight into space by being secured in a 100-lb biopack drum. Sam then rode a Project Mercury-type capsule to a height of 55 miles and landed 200 miles out in the Atlantic. The “Little Joe” experiment to test the capsule’s escape rocket system was a success.

Tucked away in the mountains of Austria you’ll find the tiny town of Hallstatt. Hallstatt and its population of less than 1000 residents rest on the southwestern shore of the Hallstätter See. In addition to the picturesque view of the town on the lake, tourists can see the world’s first salt mine, enjoy nearby skiing, take a trip to the World Heritage Museum, and visit the Dachstein ice cave. Though this village is very small, there are a few different hotels and restaurants to choose from.
In celebration of our 300th article we pay homage to photographer/film-maker and founder of Mirage Magazine, Henrik Purienne. No-one manages to capture the beauty of the female body and spirit only slightly the way he does. His work is highly erotic, but not in a cheap way at all. “Very 70s playboy meets 80s national geographic”. Everything looks like it could easily be an American Apparel Ad right? That’s because Henrik shoots them too. The pictures are timeless, yet they hit the vein of our present beau ideal.

GLOBOSAT is Brazil’s largest television network and the second largest in the world. Given that Brazil is also the country where half our team hails from, we were thrilled to re-brand GLOBOSAT’s hugely popular rock music and entertainment station, Bis Multishow HD. (Portuguese 101: “Bis” = Brazilian term for “encore”.)
Each season rising designer Simon Porte Jacquemus constructs a female character who embodies the spirit of the collection. And while her look and mood changes from season to season, her loose hair, make-up free face, and broad smile are enviable constant. The photography is an important element in the communication of the young label. Their lookbooks give you kind of an amateur-homemade feel and connect to the audience on a personal level.
The collection consists of minimalistic, perfectly coloured pieces with a subtle, youthful french touch. Browse the lookbook and coverage of the fashion show after the jump.
