The sequel of "Call Me By Your Name" is coming soon...

Author of the novel "Call Me By Your Name" André Aciman, has announced that he is writting the sequel of the romantic story.

As we read in Vogue Hommes, the second novel (and possibly movie) might be out sooner than we expectecd. Even though before sharing the news and all the details we know let’s put the context back.

In 2017, Call Me By Your Name was treated to Italian director Luca Guadagnino's film adaptation , starring prodigy actor Timothée Chalamet and Armie Hammer . If, after the boxing of the feature film Oscarized, the director announced to prepare a sequel to his film, the author himself revealed on Twitter, in December 2018, that he would pursue the romance between his characters with a second book: "I'd love to have 'Call Me By Your Name', and I'm actually writing it . " A boon for all those who have been blown by André Aciman and his ability to provide so many emotions through the simple prism of words.

The good news ? We know the title and some details of the novel. According to Vulture , the publishing house Farrar, Straus and Giroux has indicated, via a statement, that it will be a direct result of the first installment. Samuel , the father of Elio , just divorced, would undertake a trip from Florence to Rome during which he makes a meeting about to change his life, while his son, become a classical pianist, will fly to Paris. Oliver , now a teacher in a school in the United States, would think of returning to Europe. Entitled Find Me , this second part will be released on October 29, 2019. We are already looking forward to it.

ELIO’S LOVER

BOYS WITH FEELINGS

HIS HANDS Short Film: a powerful erotic thriller

Directed by Arron Blake and Darius Shu, “HIS HANDS” comes to break your silence and speak to your soul.

Arron Blake also stars in the film and he plays an unnamed younger man who visits the flat of an older man, played by Philip Briseboise; the door to the flat resembles the bars of a prison cell, and Blake touching on the loud buzzer breaks the eerie silence. The action exclusively takes place within this darkened interior, which feels like a strange, disquieting bubble separate to the daytime cityscape outside.

An atmospheric psychological thriller which last as long as your tea break (13 minutes) but brings out themes of acceptance, loneliness and both gender and sexual identity; very important topics for the LGBTQ+ and the humanity in general.

After the thriumph in London in 2018, the film is set to premiere this April in Tribeca Film Festival and we can’t wait to see it screening in Europe.

‘‘HIS HANDS’’ has already won awards at the Oniros Film Awards and been screened at Perth’s International Queer Film Festival and The Lowry ahead of a wider release later this year.



Conchita WURST reintroduces himself with the new single ''HIT ME''

He introduced himself as Conchita Wurst through Eurovision and he managed to won the competition in 2014. The media wrote ‘‘A glamorous drag queen stole Eurofans’ hearts as she rised like a phoenix on the stage of Eurovision. The win belongs to her’’.

Five years later, Conchita WURST is back and we love every little detail of the new WURST and his music project.

“Hit me with the bullets you make up in your head,” sings Electro-newcomer WURST on his latest song that is released today and will make all heads and legs move. The official video provides unprecedented insights into the artist’s private life.

WURST sings his way directly into memory banks with his Electro-Dance earworm “Hit Me”. At first glance, this dance track seems to be light-hearted and carefree, but its lyrics are an ice-cold reckoning with the past. Even though there are guns and projectiles pointing at him in these lyrics, the artist is convinced that no threat can harm him and his determination makes him invincible.

The brand-new, dynamic song is the second single off Tom Neuwirth’s third album, who will impersonate the two characters Conchita and WURST from now on. Early on in his career as the feminine Conchita, he already sang about being “unbreakable” and “unstoppable”. As his new stage character WURST, who is significantly edgier and more unkempt, he talks about his convictions as unambiguously and unflinchingly as never before in “Hit Me.”

He clearly states how he intends to handle his opponents with lyrics like “You don’t get to point the gun and you don’t get to force my hand, cause I don’t get to mend the matters, I don’t get to fight back.”

In the official music video for “Hit Me”, which once again does not use any special effects, we see WURST as masculine as never before: the radiant stage character and the private person are both equally captivating. Dance performances like in “Trash All The Glam” already hinted at the artist’s body control, and last summer we already got a first taste of his platinum-blond look.

Following “Trash All The Glam”, “Hit Me” is the second release off Tom Neuwirth’s latest project WURST. After his debut album “Conchita”, which was released in 2015, and his second album “From Vienna With Love” with the Vienna Symphonic Orchestra, which was released in October last year and also reached gold status, the singles of his third album project WURST now just keep on coming. The electronic soundscapes, which were produced by Albin Janoska and written by Eva Klampfer (“Lylit”), are far more personal for Tom Neuwirth than the songs of his previous repertoire.

MUST watch: Netflix's Halloween promo video starring Antoni Porowski

Spooky season just got a lot spookier . . . and more sexy.!

On Monday, Netflix dropped a teaser for its sinister new anthology of horror shorts titled “Don't Watch This”, and it features the lovable chef from the streaming service's popular show Queer Eye. That's right, Antoni Porowski — known for pleasantly helping people improve their cooking skills — just showed us a side of him that might make us rethink going to one of his dinner parties (if we're ever cool enough to get invited).

In the clip for the episode called "Antoni Psycho," Porowski is clearly channelling his inner Patrick Bateman from American Psycho. He dons a Greek yoghurt face mask while doing a few yoga stretches in nothing but his Calvin Klein underwear (which isn't a bad start, honestly — LOOK at those abs). Totally normal, right? Well, things take a scary turn as Porowski wipes a knife clean as he eerily declares, "I don't care whether they like what I cook or not. They'll eat it if they know what's good for them." Ummm, what?! Who is the "they" that he's talking about? What happened to our smiley Antoni who just wants to help people make a nice dish of roasted potatoes? Antoni, are you OK? What did Netflix DO to you? As scary as this seems, it looks like we're going to have to give this a watch, because clearly Porowski has a bit of a dark side.

The world of Ali Franco: Exclusive Interview and Presentation

Eastern European ( originally from Ukraine) but based in Portugal, Ali Franco is a unique artist and painter.

"Lover of the erotic themes of the homosexual world, he represents a combination of concepts and taboos and gives us glimpses of bourgeois porn in candy covers, where Harmony novel atmospheres act as a setting for disturbing sexual acts among wrestlers of ancient Greece."

-Tell us a bit more about you and your art.

I was born within an artistic family, my parents have art education and my father always worked in museums and theaters, decorating rooms and the stage.

I loved so much to be in a backstage room, to see the actors preparing for showsand the busy atmosphere. I loved costumes around me and the makeup smell, it was like magic in the air.

Something else that stayed in my mind as a strong memory is the Apollo mask on the wall of my room. I was drawing him very often. Years later I was in love with the movies of Fellini Satyricon and Casanova. I guess all of these things had influence on me.

But I thought there is something I can't find and I want to see it...

I was looking for that something in books, magazines, internet and finally decided to create something by myself: homoerotic illustrations with the atmosphere I love: theater, Greek, French, Italian culture.

-How did you decide to follow and develop that section of art?

My first work pieces were not openly homoerotic actually. But people said “they look like gays, why do you do it? The guys you paint, look too feminine, it's so weird.” I guess I confused people around with my works.

I heard from them “it might be better to do normal things, because nobody needs paintings like yours”.

And I made a big break with my own artworks. I closed up and I was working just for requests, painting mostly portraits, landscapes, book and game illustrations.

But I believe it was a good experience in my life, that gave me new skill level and requirements. As a final point now they love what I create.

-Describe your art in three words.

Three main words are always with me when I'm painting - Passion, Beauty, Love.

-Where do you find inspiration? Books or paintings? Do you organise a set with live models as well?

I can say I'm more illustrator than a painter. I create a composition in my head and later I look for models. Sometimes my friends help me with this, sometimes I use photos… everything can be good in this case.

-How is fashion related to your work?

Talking about fashion, it's funny - as a teenager I wanted to be a fashion designer, to create interesting clothes, but at the same time I always thought - “it will be something out of fashion because it's too weird or complicated.”

I hope in future to use more clothes and hairstyle ideas in my artworks, maybe even to create some alternative or even a surreal world.

I like what is going on with fashion today - looks like we are very close to freedom, people can be creative and feel free to express themselves.

I'm really glad about it!

-Where can someone find your art and actually buy his favourite painting?

Two years ago I started to post my works on Instagram and didn't expected for a lot of followers, if to be honest. So I really appreciate all people who like my works! And I'm glad that people buy my paintings or art prints.

At the moment I have Etsy page for this (https://www.etsy.com/shop/AFstore) and also you can find some of my works in Filippo Ioco Studio and Gallery in Barcelona (http://www.iocostudiogallery.com).

-What are your next plans? Are planning any exhibition soon ?

I have so many plans - first to continue create new illustrations sure.

I hope to publish few books with sketches and color illustrations. Also to take a part in art exhibitions and to make a solo exhibition in two years.

JOVÅN Spring/Summer 2019

JOVÅN (based in Milan) has been our addiction last season with his SS18 collection and we have to admit that he did it again with his Spring/Summer 2019 lines.

The founder and Creative director Jovan Stevanovic, continues his fashion journey and he presents men & women pieces in one collection with many lines available for him or her at the same time.

Unisex is the new black and JOVÅN SS19 meets Urban streetwear on its best. Metallic gold, black, yellow and lilac have been combined with red, white and denim blue elements and they propose the ideal look for those who dare to be different, to be unique. 

Another remarkable statement are the JOVÅN  accessories which have been combined in a really playful way. Caps, backpacks, jewellery and our favourite JOVÅN socks have already been the new trend in Milan. 

In conclusion is worth to mention the references to the LGBTQ+ community which have been  added in line with the new collection, reminding us the identity of the brand.

Sexy, playful, unique; JOVÅN is ready to hit the European market.

Thom Browne Fall 2018: a statement show to remember

Androgynous looks and grey flannel for women; pants down, heels and puppy heads for men. 

A runway which looked like an art studio and “Lady painters painting portraits of ladies, in grey flannel.”  Models styled with androgynous outfits and with hair inspired from 18th century French aristocracy strolled along the runway, taking up positions for the painters while Madonna's 'Vogue' was the main soundtrack of the show. 

For the second and main part of the show, models walked wearing deconstructed outfits, all in the 'fifty shades of grey' flannel Some remind us men's office clothes, some others school uniform and the hero pieces are definitely statements inspired by the same century. 

Half dresses combined with others, skirts as tops and the opposite were some of the highlights.

And as a conclusion the most powerful statement of all: male models wearing grey dog head masks and heels walked out, all harnessed, followed by Grace Bol, the South Sundanese model holding their leashes and wearing a ball gown.

Milan Fashion Week: MOSCHINO AW18

Jeremy Scott amazed the fashion world during Milan Fashion Week as his new AW18 collection for MOSCHINO was the biggest fashion highlight during the weekend.

405 (8).jpg

The collection was a mixture of Pre Fall and FALL for 2018-2019 and we have seen both menswear and womenswear collections on the runway. The mixture between the two was the key for the collection as the designer mixed  masculine and feminine in an assertively subversive way.
