Official closure of Nightshade gives way to a new French-Indian brasserie in the arts district

A new French and Indian-influenced brasserie called Camphor opens from two Alain Ducasse veterans inside the former Nightshade space next month. Max Boonthanakit, who received the award Young Gun Eater in 2019 (name which has been renamed new guard eater) while he was Nightshade’s pastry chef, and co-manager Lijo George, who both worked at Blue by Alain Ducasse in Bangkok, will open the new restaurant in mid-February with Cyrus Batchan, also owner lock and key in Koreatown.

This means Nightshade, which never officially reopened during the pandemic, is officially closed; Asked about the shutdown, former Nightshade leader Mei Lin declined to comment. The former LA Eater Restaurant of the Year, Best New Eater Restaurant and James Beard Award Foundation Best New Restaurant finalist never announced he would return despite a strenuous effort to stay open with takeout service in the first weeks of the pandemic. Over the past two years, with reopenings and closings, Nightshade has never hinted that it will return.

In its place is a “back to basics” style French restaurant inspired by Indian flavors thanks to George, who is originally from Kerala and worked under Ducasse in Bangkok for more than eight years. The two met at Michelin starred blue by Alain Ducasse, where Boonthanakit served as Executive Pastry Chef under Chef Wilfred Hocquet (interestingly, formerly of Georgia in Beverly Hills).

Boonthanakit and George plan to make French dishes with Indian ingredients, like a whole chicken breast with chicken thigh mousse and tandoori spices, or a hazelnut soufflé glazed with hot chocolate. The word the co-chefs keep insisting is that the fare will be “light,” a direct contrast to the typical presentation of rich, buttery French cuisine. Although other dishes have not been announced, expect plenty of vegetable and seafood options for dinner.

The interior look offers plenty of white, with Nightshade’s millennial pink hues giving way to lighter earth tones, marble, and periwinkle blue banquette seating. Otherwise, the space won’t get a drastic change in layout, with an open kitchen and inviting cocktail bar along the other side, with bar manager and beverage director Andrew Panigua whipping up cocktails. French Inhale.

As soon as it opens in mid-February, Camphor will serve from Wednesday to Monday from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m.

Novak Djokovic could now only be limited to playing Grand Slams at Wimbledon

Wimbledon is starting to look like Novak Djokovic’s ONLY Grand Slam hope in 2022, with US Open set to follow Roland Garros in banning unvaccinated players

  • Novak Djokovic was unable to obtain an exemption to participate in the Australian Open
  • The world No. 1 could now face similar difficulties at the French Open and the US Open
  • Wimbledon could turn out to be the only Grand Slam the Serbian can play in

Wimbledon is starting to look like Novak Djokovic’s last refuge after the French government suggested he would be kicked out of Roland Garros.

The Sports Ministry in Paris said hardcore elite athletes would not be exempt from needing a vaccination pass to attend Roland Garros in May and other sporting events in the country.

If that holds, it further narrows the options for the world No. 1, 34, who also risks being left out of the United States. Spring events in Indian Wells and Miami should make the shot mandatory, and the US Open would likely follow.

Wimbledon may now be the only Grand Slam where Novak Djokovic can add to his 20 titles

Djokovic could face problems at the French Open and the US Open, which, like the Australian Open, are considering preventing athletes from competing without being bitten against Covid

Wimbledon could therefore become Djokovic’s only chance to add 20 points to his Grand Slam tally. The All England Club said it was too early to take a position and would adhere to government policy. It also raises the possibility of Djokovic playing at Queen’s this summer.

Djokovic returned to Belgrade on Monday and, worryingly for him, his clothing sponsor Lacoste said they would talk to him.

“We will be in contact with Novak to review the events that accompanied his presence in Australia,” a statement read.

Milan Men’s Fashion Week dresses up for post-Covid excursions

Published on: Amended:

Milan (AFP) – Tailored frock coats, bow ties and exuberant colors graced the leak as Dolce & Gabbana and Fendi both dreamed up more glamorous post-pandemic wardrobes for their fall/winter collections during Men’s Fashion Week. Milano.

Designer Silvia Venturini Fendi was inspired by the dandy of the 1920s during her fashion house’s show on Saturday, punctuating the refinement with touches of eccentricity.

The shows that were still going on embraced a wardrobe suitable for post-pandemic excursions Miguel MEDINAAFP

Blazers were turned into capes, knitwear featured prominent chest cutouts, and accessories got flashy.

The collection also aimed for a more fluid take on typically gendered clothing, with wide-leg pants turning into half-skirts.

“We women wear men’s jackets, I don’t see why they couldn’t take inspiration from our wardrobe,” said the designer, granddaughter of the founders of the Italian fashion house.

During the show of the Sicilian duo Dolce & Gabbana, casual and sartorial styles mixed to celebrate the return to the great outdoors.

Still, those who have gone forward, like Dsquared2 on Friday, have embraced the return to the podium.

In their first live show in two years – attended by soccer star Zlatan Ibrahimovic – the Canadian twins behind the brand presented a festival of bright yellows, pinks, reds and blues alongside floral designs, sequins and crystal embroidery.

French fashion team shows how to be horrible foreigners in Mexico


A crew member in Oaxaca for a French fashion shoot tricked Guillermina Gutiérrez into dancing for the camera, sparking outrage. (Photo via Instagram with permission @lienzos.extraordinarios)

MEXICO CITY — Strangers laugh as the elderly Native woman raises her arms and rocks back and forth to a 1960s pop tune as a professional photographer begins snapping pictures. Now, video of the photoshoot for a French fashion brand has sparked widespread outrage and a strong rebuke from the Mexican government.

The explosion involving Sezane, a clothing line founded in Paris in 2013, is the latest chapter in a long-standing debate around cultural appropriation and racism in the fashion industry. Big brands have been publicly shamed for being predatory at worst and culturally insensitive at best.

The controversy arose after a Sézane team staged a photo shoot with an elderly indigenous woman in the Zapotec community of Teotitlán del Valle, Oaxaca state, on January 7. The wife, Guillermina Gutierrez, is wearing a green sweater from Sézane and is seated in front of a staged set.

A woman from the French team gets up and starts dancing with Gutiérrez to the song by Mary Hopkin from 1968 Those were the days. The woman then steps aside and encourages Gutiérrez to keep moving forward, eliciting smiles, peals of laughter and words of encouragement.

But one onlooker was outraged: an Oaxaca resident who had been hired by Sézane to help with his shoots and recorded video of the scene.

The company arrived in Mexico in early January with a team of about 20 people, including models, photographers and videographers, said Kandy Mijangos, another Oaxacan hired to work with the team. The photo shoot in Teotitlán, famous for its weaving, came three days after a planned nine-day shoot in various parts of the state, according to a “mood board” the company put together outlining its vision for the advertising campaign. The painting features models eating mangoes on the street, lounging in high-end hotels and posing in front of marigolds.

Those plans evaporated after the person who filmed the elderly woman being tricked into dancing shared the footage with Mijangos, who in turn shared it with Manuela Cortés, a textile artist and art curator. Cortés posted the video on her Instagram account with the comment: “Indigenous cultures are treated as a showcase from which to choose. No respect. No morals.”

The video quickly racked up thousands of views and furious comments directed at the company, which advertises “luxury quality at a fair and accessible price” and promises “Commitment to the community.” Most of her clothes sell for between $100 and $300. The person who shot the video declined to speak to VICE World News.

Mexico’s National Institute of Indigenous Peoples, a government agency, said Sézane’s actions reinforce “racist stereotypes” and called “private brands and companies must stop exploiting indigenous and Afro-Mexican peoples and communities as cultural capital”. These are not objects for sale, specifies the institute, but citizens “possessing a vast cultural heritage and traditional knowledge”.

The agency said it would be in contact with Gutiérrez and his family, as well as authorities in Teotitlán del Valle, to pursue legal action. The agency did not respond to a request for comment from VICE World News on specific legal actions it may take.

Mexico’s government ministry and its culture secretary accused the French fashion company in a joint press release of “manipulate, use and make a spectacleof the elderly in indigenous villages as part of “their publicity”.

Morgane Sèzalory, the company’s founder, who was present at the photo shoot, wrote a letter to Cortés saying that she “never wanted to hurt anyone” and that her only intention was “to do things the most beautiful/good way, with all my heart and passion.” Cortes posted the letter on his Instagram account.

Sèzalory said in the letter that she met “the beautiful woman” at a market, where they had “a real connection and shared joy”, prompting them to dance together. Sèzalory said she returned two days later to “make beautiful pictures that I could then give to her and add to my diary”. She said the local production team helped Sèzalory meet the woman for a third time “and we made beautiful pictures of her – and with her and her daughter”. Sèzalory never mentions Gutiérrez by name.

In a statement to VICE World News, Sézane, who cut his trip short after the flap, said “the photos in question were intended for the sole purpose of a behind-the-scenes diary of the creative director.”

“We heard and understand that our approach has affected the local Mexican community,” the company said. “And we are truly sorry that our actions did not reflect our best intentions and the deep respect we have for the local community.”

Cortés said she believed the company was lying.

“I don’t believe they took those photos because it was a meeting of hearts and all that talk about love,” Cortés told VICE News. “It was clearly for an advertising campaign. There are professional cameras. There is someone who helps direct the image of the dancing woman. There are a lot of people in front of the woman trying to capture different moments.

In an interview conducted by the Milenio TV station Gutiérrez, who sells her own embroidery for a living, said she was told the photoshoot would only take a “little time”, but lasted an hour. She didn’t pay anything, she said.

Mijangos, the Oaxacan stylist hired by Sézane for the trip, said the French fashion company had annoyed Mexican staff from day one. production teams.

French photographers and videographers did not ask Oaxacan residents for permission to appear in the footage, added Mijangos, who left filming early out of anger at the crew. In one instance, she said, they staged one of the foreign models in a line of women waiting for a bus. Another time, she said, they took video in a market without asking permission from people appearing in the background.

“I told the person filming that it was inappropriate. That they should at least ask permission from the people at the back of the market who appeared in the photo,” Mijangos said. “After that, they sent me to do other things further away from the set.”

This is not the first time foreign clothing lines and companies have sparked allegations of cultural appropriation and disrespect for indigenous Mexican traditions. Major companies, from Nestlé to Benetton, have been accused of appropriating images and designs created by artisans around the world. Tenango de Doria, a city in the Mexican state of Hidalgo. And in 2019, the Mexican Minister of Culture accused the New York fashion line Carolina Herrera to steal embroidery techniques and designs from indigenous peoples.

The cigarette is back

For most young smokers, vapes exist in some way in a dance, whether they are Juuls, disposable Myle pods, or single-use e-cigarettes like Puff Bars. Many tried e-cigarettes as their teens, before fragrant flavors were banned in many states, and many more jumped on the Juul trend a few years ago. Of the smokers I spoke to (around 20), most use vapers in tandem with cigarettes, although some do not come close to vapers.

“If you’re going to get addicted to something, use cigarettes,” Ms. Frey said. “Don’t have a USB charger in your mouth. It sounds so bad. Many young smokers supplement themselves with vapes, especially Juuls, as a way to satisfy their nicotine cravings when a cigarette is not available.

At the same time, a number of those interviewed for this article expressed their irritation at the insidiousness of electronic cigarettes: their relative camouflage, compared to traditional cigarettes, means that users can, and often do, hit everyone. time. The flow of nicotine from an e-cigarette becomes like the Internet itself: constant, unbreakable, and craving their attention.

“I was like, ‘I’m just consuming too much nicotine,'” said Ms. Yara, who found herself inhaling more than one Juul capsule a day, the nicotine equivalent of a packet of cigarettes. “I hated how if I couldn’t find a vape for a second, I couldn’t do my homework.” Ms. Yara has returned to smoking in order to reduce her consumption of vape.

Emile Osborne, also 22 years old graphic designer. “I came back to smoking because I thought it would be healthier than Juuling,” he said. “Cigarettes seem to be a bad thing, while vaping doesn’t tell you about side effects at all. I can go out and smoke a cigarette several times a day. It’s a break with what I’m doing. This is my dose of nicotine for the day.

This method does not seem realistic to Ken Warner, Dean Emeritus of Public Health at the University of Michigan, who sees vaping as a powerful weapon in the public health war on smoking. “If they are really addicted to nicotine, two to four cigarettes a day would be very unlikely to satisfy true physical dependence, ”he said.

Why the “ugly” clog is the style statement of our time

That feeling was the driving force behind the creation of California-based clog brand Santa Venetia which debuted in 2017. “I’ve always wanted to be in clogs, but they never really match my aesthetic,” said the co. -Founder Gemma Greenhill on the phone, explaining that it was a friend’s 1960s pair of clogs with fully embroidered uppers that influenced her.

These are the shoes that formed the pattern for Santa Venetia’s first design, notes Greenhill, “and since then we’ve created some kind of unexpected clogs, just a bit different from your usual clogs.” This includes a collaboration with Panache, with hand-painted sushi, fruit, martinis and hot dogs, and an enhanced version of the rubber-soled nursing clog, an avant-garde design that Greenhill says was the most popular style of 2021. “I think right now people want to have a little fun in the practicality.”

Indeed, Mechling says the only clogs worth investing in are the ones that feel good. Her other top picks include ribbed clogs from California label Beklina, which she describes as “powerful and feminine” and sheepskin-lined boots from the New York label (“a bubble bath for the feet”). “The uncomfortable hooves go against the whole point of the obstruction,” she adds conclusively, “which is liberation and self-celebration.”

Max Julien, star of cult Blaxploitation film, dies at 88

Melvin Van Peebles had set the tone with “Sweet Sweetback’s Baadasssss Song”, his independent box office hit from 1971 on a performer of a sex show that became revolutionary. Gordon Parks’ “Shaft”, less transgressive but still very popular, appeared the same year.

By the end of the 1970s, the blaxploitation category had fizzled out. A decade later, young moviegoers and hip-hop artists were devouring VHS tapes of “The Mack” and other gems from that era – a mine of films with powerful black images that also included “Super Fly” and “Black. Caesar “.

“Because of Hollywood racism,” said Dr. Boyd, “back then there just wasn’t much else. And the story of an underworld figure like Goldie, working outside the system, hugely attracted young rising stars of a new musical genre, gangsta rap.

Mr. Julien also worked as a screenwriter. “Cleopatra Jones” (1973), which he wrote, featured a different kind of hero, on the right side of the law. It featured the statuesque Tamara Dobson as a swirling model of martial arts and martial arts armed with machine guns and an undercover agent on a mission to rid her community of drugs. (Shelley Winters played a drug kingpin named Mommy.)

He also wrote “Thomasine & Bushrod”, a slightly feminist western, released in 1974, and performed there with Vonetta McGee, his girlfriend at the time. The film is reminiscent of a softer, more wacky version of the 1967 film “Bonnie & Clyde”. Mr. Julien said he was inspired by the exploits of a great-grandfather, a bank robber named Bushrod, to turn his family story into a love story.

Maxwell Julien Banks was born July 12, 1933 in Washington. His father, Seldon Bushrod Banks, was a line engineer. Her mother, Cora (Page) Banks, was a restaurateur. She was murdered in her home in 1972 and Mr. Julien said her grief over her death influenced her performance in “The Mack”.

Six decades ago, the first fashion show under the name of Yves Saint Laurent (YSL) paraded. To celebrate this important milestone, six Parisian museums where the French designer sought inspiration have collaborated on a city-wide exhibition. Each will combine YSL creations with works by artists such as Mondrian, Picasso, Matisse, Bonnard and Dufy. For example, at the Museum of Modern Art in Paris, next to “La Fée Électricité” by Dufy (“La Fée Électricité”, 1937) will stand three spectacular silk dresses, while the Musée d’Orsay will focus on its fascination with Marcel Proust, who probably inspired Le Smoking de Saint Laurent, the first tuxedo for women. During this time, the National Picasso Museum will explain the influence of the Spanish master on Saint Laurent, from the couturier’s tribute to the sets and costumes of Picasso’s “Ballets Russes” (1976) to his Cubist collection from 1988. –Sarah belmont

In his day, the 15th-century Florentine sculptor Donatello was considered “the master of masters”. Despite this, there has not been a major exhibition dedicated to the sculptor’s work for nearly 40 years. That is set to change in March when a vast investigation into Donatello’s work opens in Florence at Palazzo Strozzi and the nearby Museo Nazionale del Bargello, which houses the sculptor’s most important collection of works, including “David” (c. 1440).

The Art Institute of Chicago and Tate Modern in London have organized the largest Paul Cézanne exhibition in a generation. Simply baptized “Cézanne”, it will cover the artist’s entire career. In Chicago, where the exhibition opens, it will include 90 oil paintings, 40 works on paper and two sketchbooks, although it will be slightly reduced in London (70 oils and 18 on paper). Cézanne (1839-1906) has always been considered an “artist artist” and exerted a great influence on later painters, including Monet, Pissarro, Matisse and Picasso. He remains a source of inspiration, and among the lenders of the exhibition will be Jasper Johns, the American Abstract Expressionist, who will send three key watercolors (plus an oil painting of a nude in Chicago only) from his collection. personal. Technical analysis of the artist’s palette, construction of composition, and mark-making will deepen our understanding of how Cézanne created his paintings. Chicago promises that the show will “reframe Cézanne, a giant in the history of art, for our time.” –Martin bailey
