Inspired by historic collaborations between Chanel, Cocteau, Dalí and Schiaparelli respectively, the celebratory 'Fashion and Art Collusion: Britain Creates' project has been established by the BFC/Bazaar Fashion Arts Foundation in conjunction with London's 2012 Festival. Harnessing the talents of Mary Katrantzou, Mark Titchner, Peter Pilotto and Francis Upritchard to name just some of the creatives involved, nine duos have produced sculpture, garments and audio - captured as part of this stunning boxset. As well as two photographic books, this pack includes a DVD of Hussein Chalayan and Gavin Turk's work 'Four Minute Mile' and nine commemorative posters. <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>
New York-based musicians Alex Naidus (bass), Kip Berman (guitar/vocals), Kurt Feldman (drums), and Peggy Wang-East (keyboards/vocals) came together to form the Pains of Being Pure at Heart in 2007. With its wall-of-fuzz guitar stylings and sugary pop underpinnings, the band nodded to any number of old-school indie pop and shoegaze acts, most notably Black Tambourine and My Bloody Valentine. The band recorded a few tracks soon after forming, which were released as a self-titled 3" CD-R on Cloudberry Records. A self-titled EP followed soon after for Painbow. During 2008 the band released a number of limited-edition split singles on Atomic Beat Records and Slumberland.
