SHWEDAGON PAGODA 360°
LE MILE STUDIOS x KODAK PIXPRO
In the past few years, there´s been big steps taken on the action camera scene. The movie-makers are now getting more and more of a shake-up from the virtual-reality action camera producers. The VR action camera can capture a 360 degree scene, actually everything that is happening around you.

Kodak PixPro´s SP360 4K VR action camera hasn´t just a very long and out of the ordinary name but it also is one of a kind in its field of 360 degree cameras. Two cameras are bolted together so both lenses are pointing away from each other and capture every moment and detail in your surrounding. Its significant resolution and spherical immersion makes the new 360 degree camera so preferably to its forerunner.
Nowadays, you can get a pair of VR glasses for a very low price, (even google sells VR glasses), so anyone can watch and produce VR clips and films. But the challenge for LE MILE Studios was to create a virtual reality that doesn´t try to be close to the reality, but instead create a vision of surreal reality, a fantasy. To do so, we have choosen one of Buddhism's most sacred sites: the Golden Shwedagon Pagoda with its 27 metric tons of gold leaf, along with thousands of diamonds is believed to enshrine 8 hairs of the Gautama Buddha as well as relicts of three former Buddhas. The elegant Pagoda is Yangon´s most famous landmark. The massive 99 meter high Pagoda dominates not only the small hill on which he is located at but it is also visible from most parts of the city. With our Kodak Pixpro 360 degree camera, we were able to capture in moving and in still images the Pagoda´s impressive appearance by night and the mystical atmosphere that it creates while being enlightened by spotlights.

Through the lens of the Whitney’s collection, An Incomplete History of Protest looks at how artists from the 1940s to the present have confronted the political and social issues of their day. Whether making art as a form of activism, criticism, instruction, or inspiration, the featured artists see their work as essential to challenging established thought and creating a more equitable culture. Many have sought immediate change, such as ending the war in Vietnam or combating the AIDS crisis. Others have engaged with protest more indirectly, with the long term in mind, hoping to create new ways of imagining society and citizenship.
Swarovski is very proud to support the international touring exhibition Peter Lindbergh: A Different Vision on Fashion Photography as premium partner. The exhibition produced by the Kunsthal Rotterdam and premiered last winter, was exhibited at the Kunsthalle Munich for its second stop over the summer and now arrives at La Venaria Reale. Celebrated for his iconic, often cinematic images and widely regarded as one of the most influential fashion photographers of our time, Peter Lindbergh has enjoyed a multi-faceted, forty-year career that continues to this day. He is best known for the introduction of a new realism in photography, which plays with the notion of the authentic, strong and self-willed woman, from femme fatale to heroine, redefining the standards of beauty. This extraordinary, singular vision completely changed the course of fashion photography.
I am always interested in what sits outside of fashion. It’s an attitude that is at the heart of Acne Studios, and this season I wanted to explore this outsider way of being. These are individual pieces that are as if found characterful looks that are made for pleasure.

PITTI FRAGRANZE the best display of international artistic perfumery brands, that takes places in Florence, focused this time on sustainability, a hot topic that is abused and more often used for marketing leverage rather than for executing real changes. In perfumery, sustainability is still a very “fresh” topic and for this reason Pitti Fragranze no.15 dedicated some attention to it through a series of talks stepping on the the frontiers of sustainability and exotic spices.
It is impossible to be disappeared in this way as a being. A beautiful but somehow shadowy woman. She just vanished in a split-second. I’ve been following, sneakingly peeping on her for the last couple of days with this dismal weather – it seemed to be perfectly in synch with her heroin-chic aesthetic.
