Guido Palau: Hair

Elaborate Frida-Kahlo style pleating. 2013’s big curl revival. Each one of these hair trends can be largely credited to Guido Palau, a name now synonymous with reinventing youth culture, from punk rock Mohawks and Bowie hair wedges to the incredible architectural basket weave created for Alexander McQueen in 2011. Once told by Vidal Sassoon that he’d never make it as a hairdresser, Palau’s handiwork now stands as a well-oiled pillar within fashion, his creations inspired by a blend of raw talent and youthful rebellion. A new book is released this month celebrating Palau’s legacy, and his iconic alliance with photographer David Sims. Titled Hair, (the follow-up to Heads, published in 2000), the book is dedicated to the late Alexander “Lee” McQueen, whom they both worked closely with. On youth culture... On 80s street style...

Beautiful Fül. The Future Of The Rudeboy. With the exhibition, The Return Of The Rudeboy, closing at Somerset House last weekend, i-D caught up with Dean Chalkley and Harris Elliott, the men behind it, to talk about the relevance of the Rudeboy in the 21st Century.

The Future Of The Rudeboy

Originating in Jamaica in the 50s and the 60s, and being transported to the UK through the Jamaican diaspora of the Windrush generation, the Rudies favoured sharp suits and thin ties and Ska and Rocksteady music, in the UK it became synonymous with the 2 Tone movement, which saw British and Caribbean culture come together. But far from being a mere museum piece, Dean and Harris argue for the persistent importance of the Rudeboy in the modern life. What inspired you to start taking photos of modern Rudeboys? Dean: The inspiration came from the people we observed day to day, knew or came to meet through this journey.

Harris and I have very keen eyes for what is going on in a cultural sense, what is bubbling up, it has to some degree become a natural instinct.

Online gets personal

For brands toying with online personalisation strategies new research shows there’s an increased appetite for this content, however privacy concerns still exist. Consumers are craving more personalised online content, according to new research from Yahoo, but this comes with several caveats around control and privacy.
