It is no secret that the world of fashion, music and celebrity intertwine like an expertly woven pair of denim jeans. Coco Sumner (daughter of Sting and his wife Trudie Styler) has appeared in a Burbery campaign, Rosin Murphy recently was much more than just a catwalk DJ at Viktor & Rolf’s 2010 show whilst actress-come-model Chloe Sevigny‘s brother, Paul, is one of New York’s (and the fashion world’s) most in-demand hipster DJs. Designers, DJs and models move in the same circles you see, just a notch above us mere mortals.And sometimes they join forces.
So it comes with no surprise then that Hilfiger Denim – the rugged and rough offshoot of that very preppy brand of Americana – thought to reinforce its rock heritage (the denim brand regularly features emerging music talent in its campaigns, with everyone from The Virgins to The Films being cast as models) in the shape of Hilfiger Denim Live, a travelling showcase of international and national established and emerging talent.
A showcase that’ll make a pit stop in Brussels this Thursday 1st April 2010 at the city’s essential hipster dugout, K-Nal. With Das Pop headlining the show, Brooklyn-based duo French Horn Rebellion (an interview of whom will be posted on these pages in the following days) turning things up a notch after the lights go off and DJ Motor (Depeche Mode‘s tour DJ) climaxing it all at the after-party, the weekend starts on Thursday this week.
Not ones to tell you about a party without getting you on the guest list, we’ve got 10 duo tickets to give-away. All you need to do is email email@example.com with your full name, postal address and mobile phone.
