MODELS.COM’S ARTICLE OF ONE’S FAVOURITE, RAD HOURANI
THE RAD #4 FACES
Rad Hourani will be showing his first Haute Couture collection during Paris Haute Couture week this July 2012, and will be the first designer to present a Unisex Haute Couture show in history. Driven by an innovative approach to design and couture for the past 5 years, Rad Hourani has established a singular unisex vision and is pleased to show that his namesake label has now fully come into its own. The unisex reversible and transformable pieces are handcrafted and made with meticulous precision and dedication to Rad’s vision: genderless, seasonless and timeless. Exclusive and unique these pieces are destined to be more than garments, a collector’s item.
Every season Rad and his team style his looks by paying a deep attention to every single detail during his fittings to give us the best of what he does by editing the looks for each model to fit with their faces and body shapes. We wanted to share with you how much work goes into the process of editing runway looks. Here’s an exclusive look from the RAD by Rad Hourani ready to wear collection #4 fitting in New York in which you can see all the looks and details edits on RAD’s favorite faces.

OUR BELOVED HARMONY’S BAND VUVUVULTURES RELEASED THEIR NEW SINGLE “PILLS WEEK” EARLIER ON THIS MONTH. WONDERLAND SITS DOWN WITH THE BAND AND CHATS ALL THINGS VVV…
VUVUVULTURES – Vibes, Vulva, Voodoo
Vuvuvultures is not a simple name to pronounce, but this striking and industrial looking quartet, who’ve just reached their 12 month milestone together, are rapidly establishing a solid reputation on London’s live circuit. Harmony Boucher (vocals), Nicole Bettencourt Coelho (bass), Paul Ressel (guitar, production) and Matthew Christensen (drums) sat down with Wonderland to discuss their impressive, raw and charismatic debut EP VVV, and “that” power-walking video, below.
As a four piece, what would you say you each bring to the table?
Harmony: I do my best bring the stories in all our brains out in a coherent, lyrical way. I also do my best to make them in to vocal melodies that aren’t impossible to remember. That and trying to be a front women for a bunch of weirdos on stage.
Paul: I bring my producer brain into the mix. My focus is on experimentation with sound, finding interesting ways to bring the electronic elements in our sound to life. And I play guitar…
Nicole: I’m particularly fond of playing with riffs and slightly uncomfortable or weird sounds, and generally increasing intensity in song structures. I’d say I help cultivate a sort of relentless ambition to keep doing more stuff in every area, not just musically. I tend to consider everything in an overall package, visually and online. I’m also very interested in the local music community and really make an effort to find out about other bands.
Matt: I think I bring a human side to our electronic soul. I bring stubble and B.O. to the machine.
Your sound has been described as “chaotic and controlled”. Would you agree?
Probably, yes. All the songs start life in a recording studio – we tend to go off on layering and detail. Then we take the song into a live context with drums, guitars and bass and it’s literally a chaotic mash of sound. Perhaps the sort of tension that is created in the sound also has a lot to do with the fact that we all look at music very differently and have differing tastes.
What can we expect from the full length record?
More variation. We would love to be able to tell you exactly but we are still writing the album and honestly we don’t know yet! We seem to touch on different genres every time we sit down to write a new song, which is great. Because we all have such different tastes in music, the cross-over points tend to be pretty amazingly random. We’re still in the process of finding our sound, but I’m sort of hoping we never do.
What is your favourite thing that begging with the letter “V”?
We aren’t going to tell you who said what.
Victor (telepathic wolf puppy).
The video for “Pills Week” was directed by Tim Main and Joe Dixon. Are you happy with how it turned out?
Completely. The power-walking, the “suddenly we’re in space” – all of it. Tim and Joe had a really clear vision of what they wanted to do, and based on how well it all resonated with the things we like. We trusted them entirely and basically gave them free reign to work on it.
