RIVERISWILD CAPSULE 002 ABIDJAN DUSK

Riveriswild has returned, this time lost in a memory of Autumn in Cote d'Ivoire, Abidjan to be specific, with hues that represent the laughter and romance of a city best felt with a mind full of sharp bliss and eyes closed.

This capsule features 2 garments made of the finest french terry fabric, the designs strikes with grace and finesse, a hint of melancholy, bold palette and geometry.

‎Straight From The Inbox‬: MLK2MADISON presents denitia and sene

Brooklyn-based duo, denitia and sene (no caps please), just released an EP in November and the title track—Side FX —is a seductive and serpentine synth-pop song, and the reason for this LAST 2014 tour stop. The keys go boing, denitia's vocals slide like silk on skin: this is damn near divine. Join us TONIGHT as they take the stage for the last time in 2014. Also performing are Infinity Pool, Flash Frequency, & Amber Mimz. 

denitia & sene's EP, side fx., is out on 11/11 via Red Bull Sound Select (US) and Rinse (UK).

How Could We Miss Ink x Drink?

Here at Kar­mal­ifee, we pride our­selves on know­ing what’s going on in the arts scene in the Rich­mond and DC area. Even if we do not end up going, we have a gen­eral idea of what’s going on to be able to inform oth­ers. Some­how, we missed a good one. It was called “Ink x Drink”, and it took place in Rich­mond at the Wolves Den. The con­cept was sim­ple, gather some artist friends, take in some spir­its, and make their home a space that encour­ages cre­ative free­dom and net­work­ing in a very organic man­ner. I could go on, but I’ll let MisterFili’s won­der­ful captures tell the rest of the story. Kudos to @dearpoets and his crew for this great event. Hope­fully we won’t miss the next one.

Cool Flyer, Glenna.

Straight from the Inbox: Consumers of Culture Marketplace

WHY: “Con­sumers of Cul­ture” was birthed out of a desire to share in an organic cul­tural expe­ri­ence. Amer­ica is a melt­ing pot of immi­grants. There is a large sub cul­ture of first gen­er­a­tion Amer­i­cans shap­ing the face of Amer­ica each and every day with sto­ries to share.  This story we believe is one of dual­ity, which is heav­ily influ­enced by Amer­i­cana yet rooted in the cul­ture of their par­ents’ home coun­try. This dual­ity has brought great things to Amer­ica. For exam­ple who doesn’t love a pizza or a hot dog and there seems to be a new fusion restau­rant open­ing in a met­ro­pol­i­tan city every month. We want to take cer­tain aspects of this dual­ity and share our cul­tural expe­ri­ences with oth­ers. This is why we want to bring “Con­sumers of Cul­ture” to event form and share in fash­ion, music, and cul­ture in one space.

WHAT: “Con­sumers of Cul­ture Mar­ket­place” is a cul­mi­nat­ing social event bring­ing together all the par­tic­i­pants of the web series “Con­sumer of Cul­ture” into one space. This event is to allow young pro­fes­sion­als, fam­ily, friends, and sup­port­ers of the indi­vid­u­als we inter­viewed to engage with each other in a cre­ative atmos­phere. The main pur­pose of the event is to share and cel­e­brate a cul­tural experience.

Con­sumers of Cul­ture” is based on the idea that we are all con­nected as social par­tic­i­pants in a global econ­omy. In a grow­ing dig­i­tal world peo­ple are able to become more aware, edu­cated, savvy and ambi­tious about activ­i­ties around the globe. Peo­ple nat­u­rally want to share in these expe­ri­ences with like-minded intel­li­gent indi­vid­u­als. This in essence allows us all to become con­sumers of cul­ture as we take cues from each new cul­tural expe­ri­ence and share with our peer group.

Con­sumers of Cul­ture Mar­ket­place Social Event

The Royal Con­nect presents: Con­sumers of Cul­ture Mar­ket­place. Join us as we bring par­tic­i­pants of the Con­sumers of Cul­ture web series into one room! For every­one who enjoyed the series now you have the oppor­tu­nity to talk to the indi­vid­u­als in the series directly!
