Rodnik Rocks

-------

Apparently, we’re not the only ones feeling punk. British designer Philip Colbert of The Rodnik Band is launching a capsule collection for OVS, Italy’s answer to H&M, at its chain of 400 stores this Friday. And in his signature style, he’s written a song and produced a video for it that went live on YouTube this week. “God Dress the Queen!” is based on the Clash’s “London Calling.” Joe Strummer might not have approved of Colbert’s “London clothing” riff, but we’re betting he would’ve gotten a laugh out of his fish-and-chips T-shirt.


Rodnik’s Rock Runway

Last night The Rodnik Band—with help from the White Club, a Milanese association championing emerging talent—treated guests to a multimedia onslaught. Phil Colbert, Rodnik’s main man, pulled off an installation, a cartoon video, a concert—and, oh, yes, a catwalk collection. Colbert’s background is in philosophy, not fashion, so branding, surrealism, and de-contextualization all had supporting roles, too. On the catwalk things were much more straightforward: Bold graphics, borrowed from Warhol, Mondrian, and Duchamp, were applied to a series of fun and wearable silhouettes. The White Club has been busy on the business side of things, too. The Rodnik Band’s next gig is collaborating with Miss Sixty on their menswear line.

8 a.m.
Just woke up. I need a caffè Americano with lots of sugar. I’m Dazeddigital.com’s guest blogger this week so I have to cover all the fashion week stuff. Previously Julia Restoin-Roitfeld covered New York fashion week, and now it’s my turn. Today is all about meetings. I’m running to photographer Vicky Trombetta’s studio to finish the casting for our fashion story in Rodeo magazine. We’re looking for ten new girls; it will be fun to see all these new faces. Chanel and Lakshmi are confirmed. Very exciting.

11 a.m.
I have a meeting with Casey Spooner for a quick brief about my party. It’s called “Pink Is Punk” and Fischerspooner is the guest DJ. It’s going to be very tough because not everyone can get in. The capacity is only 300 people, and because it’s fashion week, we only let in friends, and of those only the ones with the best looks!

11:30 a.m.
The phone’s ringing. It’s my best mate, Riccardo Tisci. He wants me to listen to the music for his show, which will be on Sunday, March 8. I met Ricky many years ago and I fell in love with his vision and aesthetic. In fact, I was his PR person for the first three years of his career before Paris called.

12 p.m.
I’m starting to feel hungry. I may stop by Cucchi to have a quick sandwich and see some old Milanese ladies wearing incredible outfits.

12:30 p.m.
Meeting with Andreina Longhi to go over the Rodnik show Saturday night at Superstudio. After that I’m running to lunch with Margherita Missoni to give her a birthday present. Her family’s show was yesterday, always nice and warm. Continue Reading “A Day In The Life Of: Marcelo Burlon, Editor In Chief Of Rodeo Magazine, Event Planner, Nightclub King” »
