Singer, songwriter and producer Christian Cohle from Dublin is releasing his new single Another Life together with a video on September 16. Another Life is a track about love and time. The accompanying video, directed by Tristan Heanue, is like a noir short film expressing the different chapters of a couple’s life together, but in a slightly surreal way, dreamlike visions and moments experienced in real life. In the dream-washed moments between waking up and night, one could think Christian Cohle is entering the legacy of David Bowie, an experimental keyboard with spherical layers playing out in front of the third eye. Through the shimmering vocoder and autotune effect, one catches a glimpse of the French electro years of Daft Punk reigning at the time – Cohle is a fine spirit combining the influence of Francophile elegance of the noughties with brittle British sex and charm. Another Life sounds like Irish poetry from the future. Another Life follows previously released singles Wasted and Spinning Heart and is part of his upcoming sophomore album Wetlands, which tells the story of his breakup.

Polaroid enters the music industry with crying colorful images together with music producers. Polaroid’s entry into the music field is dedicated to the deep love and respect of music culture. Polaroid Music includes four vibrant Bluetooth Polaroid Music Players, an experimental music discovery service called Polaroid Radio, and the Polaroid Music app. Over more than eighty years, Polaroid is a connection between art and science as well as the production of products, which inspire and enhance creativity. The four Polaroid players echo the brand’s design language. They are playful, expressive and designed for joy and humanity. There is the smallest and moste compact Polaroid P1, the portable P2, the iconic boom-box-like P3 and the most powerful Polaroid P4, loud, portable speakers with a retro-futuristic twist. The player’s analog dial is designed to change Polaroid radio stations without picking up the phone. At the same time, favorite songs can be favorited via the red shutter button. This provides an analog experience and makes the Polaroid Players real objects rather than simple smartphone extensions. Polaroid Radio is a experiamnteal version of the known internet radio and allows you to listen to selected music and channels.

Dsquared2 unveils the spring/summer 2023 womenswear collection. The colorful pieces are pared back to light and translucent layers. Classic summer sportswear is combined with a sexy touch. Printed oversized nylon boardshorts are worn with micro bikini tops or restyled into mini skirts and paired with ribbed crop tops. This laidback attitude is the show opener of a transparent baby blue lace jacket over fade-away check shirt, with a filmy techno tulle printed skirt. Softness is complemented with overlaid pieces: delicate ruffles on leather and draped dresses, see-through bike shorts, vertical painterly stripes on pants. Zips on nude sequined mini dresses unzip to reveal a cheeky flash of skin. A leather eyelet lace dress is cut away and placed on top of another sleeveless check printed dress. Scuba fabric has an shiny finish that shimmers metallic green to purple, and is styled with a slim, narrow skirt and fitted jacket. Wet-look jersey tops have a lacquered finish. Dsquared2 denim is presented in a new cut this season: the Traveller jeans have a wide leg and a colorful wash, which is also worked into a casual oversized boyfriend jean jacket.
The signature beach style of terry suits meets the denim world. The same material is found in accessories, including heeled clog sandals and bags perfect for gliding through coastal resorts.
Pointed patent pumps with a high neckline elevate the look to the top of the wave, along with tribal earrings and printed patterned D2 shoulder bags or comfortable straw beach bags.

This Diesel Runway Show debuted before an audience of nearly 5.000 Experimentation for all, energy that includes everyone. Diesel is an innovative international lifestyle company, founded by Renzo Rosso in 1978. This show will set a Guinness World Record. At the center of the catwalk is the world’s largest inflatable sculpture. For Diesel, democratic fashion is very important: Denim, Utility, Pop and Play. That’s what the brand stands for. Denim devoré is created by weaving denim onto a transparent base, like the devoré corset waist of low-slung denim pants. The effect is also created with denim knits, while part-solarised denim is like it’s been left out in years of hot summer sun. Denim is roughly embroidered with a layer of tulle that’s then torn, while totally distressed denim is held by stitching lines and a sheer lining to bring control to the destruction. There’s also denim that’s been bonded with a layer of cotton then acid washed, revealing the denim once more. Scans of distressed denim have been taken to create second-skin trompe-l’oeil prints, while many pieces throughout the collection are trimmed with raw denim for pure Diesel energy. Utility pants with supersized pockets are solarised for attitude, satin cargo pants are future perfect, while little fluid tops are held by wide utility belts. Nylon utility jackets and flying pants have cotton layers that are then cut away; dresses and pants are made from organza layers which are then cut open; double-layer printed T-shirts have smiley holes cut into the top layer to reveal the print beneath. The Diesel Eyewear collection is a special collaboration with with EssilorLuxottica, launching exclusively through Diesel networks in February 2023. Each style, from aviator glasses to wraparound glasses, has color edging and metallic temples.
