When I spotted these state-of-the-art black and white wedges in our HUGO showroom I felt more like admiring a piece of art than a pair of shoes. I think it is amazing how accessories – and especially shoes – have become small artworks over the past few years. This fact is also a superb reason for women to keep investing in shoes. Got my point, ladies?!
Alessandro Russo aka SLOK is an Italian house music enthusiast based in Paris. After having released some great tracks on numerous labels he now chooses to return to the underground approach of the music business by releasing on his own imprint Electronic Petz. And his first EP on there is quite the charmer! This puppy was conceived, composed, mixed and mastered by the man himself and you can feel the love and dedication in every bassdrum. Make sure to check out the magnificient “The Underground” right here and if you’re in Paris, try to stop by at one of his club nights. We sure would!
Sunless ’97 are a three-piece band from Mexico and the UK. Luke Solomon is a legendary house producer, DJ and label owner from London.

When it comes to denim there are two major trends this season. First, this summer is all about colors - from pastel to vibrant. The denim color palette has never been so versatile. Secondly, it’s time to show your ankles! Denims are rolled up just high enough to show off the ankle. If you are tall, wear it with ballerinas or Espadrilles. Everyone else should go for wedges or high-heeled sandals. To a colorful summer!
Jacob Wiltshire is a 19-year-old producer from from Winchester, Britain. Just as the name of his hometown suggests, this prodigy focuses on creating dancefloor weapons that are truly pulsating, but always have a touching depth and beauty to them. His debut EP entitled “How It Is” touches ground on Hypercolour these days and is surely not to be missed! Stream the title track right here to get an idea what these kids today are capable of… Superb!
After mullet dresses and skirts the short-front-long-back-trend has now reached tops and shirts. I spotted this eye-catching mullet shirt above in our HUGO Showroom the other day and I instantly could imagine myself sporting it with black leggings or skinny jeans and a pair of Espadrilles. I love the flowing fabric and the vibrant color. The mullet shirt is from the HUGO Summer 2013 collection and now available in stores.
Kate Boy is a four-piece band from Stockholm, Sweden. And boy, these guys are on to something! They’ve taken us by storm ever since we first heard of them. Be it the voice of singer Kate Akhurst, who is originally from Australia and now resides in Stockholm, or the band’s phenomenal arrangements and productions – we’re prediciting them a bright bright future! Make sure to say hello on their facebook page and check out the remix of Chicago’s own Houses of their debut single “Northern Lights”.
Germany’s own Kris Menace surely isn’t a stranger in the realms of electronic music, considering that he’s released numerous classy tracks on several labels over the years. Now it shouldn’t be too hard to guess what the outcome of him collaborating with an absolute legend of Chicago house would sound like… Quite a no-brainer, that that would be something house heads around the globe could have faith in, no? Yup, his latest single “Trusting me” features the one and only Robert Owens on vocals, who has significantly helped to shape the triumphal march of (t)his genre with his former group Fingers Inc and so many other projects and tracks. Calling Robert the voice of house music isn’t too much of an overstatement, if you ask us! The single comes with a load of top notch remixes (Le Crayon, Penner & Muder, Good Guy Mikesh & Filbuert etc.) and an incredible video shot by award winning Danish director Meeto Worre Kronborg Grevsen from We Make Colors (check it right here!). Trust us – you wouldn’t want to miss out on this one!
