Stroke of Genius?

Fashion and music are often bedmates.

Well, Julian Casablancas has recently been bedded by French perfume maker, Azzaro, for the brand’s latest campaign. Or is it the other way around?


Sell-out, you say? I suppose the Strokes frontman beat them all to the punch. Better to hear a new tune he composed for the commercial now (called I Like the Night) – versus having a fave Strokes tune that carried you through a tough time in your life, show up in a toothpaste ad in a few years.

You laugh, but I almost cried when I heard The Jesus and Mary Chain accompanying a VW hipster’s quest for love.

Cue the bland. Nothing is sacred anymore, my dears.

Is it a stroke of genius or the homogeneous?
