SEPP - Football Fashion. from the editors:
When we launched Sepp in 2002, few designers, except maybe Armani with the Davids - James and Beckham - and Dirk Bikkembergs sport couture, cared much about football. Since then, a squad of luxury labels has tapped into the global obsession with football, and player's rare ability to convey and magnify style trends.

The new Wax Poetics is fully dedicated to its origine; hip-hop. If you ever thought it was dead, or in a deep coma, this issue proves it is not and brings it back to life. Discussing the post hip-hop state we are in and passionate writing about the past and future of rap music. Giving light to old-school artists like Coke La Rock and Kurtis Blow, new-school artists we've never heard of to NAS & Master P who grace the cover. There is also a Dutch contribution by Van Splunteren's legendary 80ies hip-hop documentary; Big Fun in the Big Town, a rare glimpse of New York's golden age. While his boss (VPRO broadscasting company) only allowed him to play two hip-hop records every hour, he tried to make people understand that this music was really cool music, but some people just didnt get it!
Read this Wax Poetic and you will, if you didn't already.

PJ Harvey & Ann Demeulemeester in Style Zeitgeist #2

In Style Zeitgeist #2 there's an article on the kinship between alternative guitar legend PJ Harvey and the Antwerp based fashion designer Ann Demeulemeester. For PJ Harvey's last record Let England Shake, she wore Demeulemeester's clothes exclusively for the tour and promotion. PJ Harvey loves Demeulemeester's clothes so much because "It's something to do with the soul of the work, the soul from which the work comes. There's something in Ann's soul that I see transferred into her work. I'm drawn to that".

BETRAYAL TAKES TWO, the art and music scene between Eindhoven and New York in the early 80's.

This is the first issue of BETRAYAL TAKES TWO, a zine that's put together by guest editors at the invitation of Carlos van Hijfte and Ton van Gool. The guest editors are asked to build a zine from photos that Carlos and Ton took from the bands they programmed at De Effenaar in Eindhoven in the late 70s and early 80s.
In the early 80's there was a blooming avant-garde rock scene in New York that found a connection with Dutch artists and photographers. This issue is compiled by René Daniels and Marleen Gijsen and has stories and work by Remko Scha, Truus de Groot, Ton van Gool and Carlos van Hijfte.
They all tell their personal story, there are photo's from Tom Waits, Talking Heads, Glenn Branca, Patti Smith, the CBGB venue in NY and The Ramones. There are drawings and parts of diaries kept by René Daniels in New York. 
One of the most special photo's here is a band portrait of Sonic Youth made by Carlos Van Hijfte in Valkenswaard. It got featured on the backcover of the bands' second album Bad Moon Rising
BETRAYAL TAKES TWO  is a beautiful zine which documents an interesting and very relevant period in music history. The next issue will be curated by Lee Ranaldo from Sonic Youth. We're looking forward to that!

For the People, By the People is a visual story about how people influence change in the city. The collapse of faith in top-down planning has been followed by a renewed interest in the self-generating wisdom of bottom-up urban initiatives. What does it mean when people act as the urban change agents that direct the life and death of the world’s cities? Fusing her photography with a manifesto-like text, architect Afaina de Jong marks the people in the streets as the starting point of all urban trends and cultural innovation. And calls upon us all to become architects of our environment.

Afaina de Jong (1977) is an architect, writer and photographer based in Amsterdam. Afaina believes in the practice of an architecture that goes beyond just making buildings. She is a creative do-it-all when it comes to space and the city. With her company AFARAI, which she founded in 2005, she has worked on a diverse set of projects, translating street culture and urban lifestyles into urbanism and architecture. She has worked internationally with the likes of AMO-OMA/Rem Koolhaas, the Hakuhodo Think Tank HILL in Tokyo, and MARK Magazine. For more info,

Ultra de la Rue is an independent publisher dedicated to going beyond what is usual or ordinary. Ultra de la Rue publishes distinctive books that bring together the best work from the street worldwide. Today, the streets are a breeding ground for emerging talent and trends, and we aim to capture this work and create a context for it to flourish.

The official OPENING of the Ultra de la Rue Creative Space in the Red Light District and the FOR THE PEOPLE BY THE PEOPLE book launch is Saturday June 16th from 15hrs-21hrs at the Oudekerksplein 30 in Amsterdam.
