KOM_I, a strange but no doubt familiar name, is the lead singer of Japanese band Wednesday Campanella. A portmanteau of the first syllables of her first name and surname, the underscore in her stage name came about when KOM_I created her Twitter handle. Her style follows the same ethos of casual improvisation, earning her legions of fans as well as a place on Vogue Japan’s 2017 Women of the Year list. The modern electro pop music is a way of expressing her thoughts that would otherwise be neglected. She translates them into moody melodies and lyrics, thus bringing every one of her listeners along for the ride.

“Even I find it impossible to define my own style.”

KOM I Wednesday Campanella

Those who have seen KOM_I perform live often come away with a deep impression of her energetic stage presence and music, which combines Hip-Hop, Electro and Pop. The result is a psychedelic mix that frequently makes Wednesday Campanella the must-see act at music festivals. On stage, KOM_I mesmerizes with her idiosyncratic style, hypnotizing lyrics and spellbinding lighting effects, effectively enchanting the audience. At a recent performance in Okinawa, KOM_I went so far as to crowd surf while inside of a transparent, inflatable ball, showing the fearless lengths to which she takes her live performances.

In a country of strict gender norms, women in particular are expected to be nurturing and well-mannered — although these notions carry little weight in the eyes of KOM_I. Instead, she has struck out with her own inimitable style and attitude, blazing a path that nobody else has ventured on before.

Similarly, her music knows no boundaries and is heavily influenced by Asian culture, taking cues from traditional Japanese Bon-Odori festival music as well as classical Indian music and Chinese opera. Blending these often contradictory elements together, KOM_I has created a unique hybrid genre that defies all attempts to categorize it.

“I like to perform in public spaces, where I can communicate with people through the language of music.”

Inspired by KOM_I’s rule-bending aesthetic, Christian Louboutin introduces its Run Loubi Run sneaker series designed for the women who aren’t afraid to reveal their true selves. Featuring innovative, multi-layered uppers combined with statement chunky soles, the characteristically bold silhouettes are made purposely for treading new ground. Unexpected trims and detailing — including reflective accents, satin stitching and spike embellishments — can’t be missed. Echoing KOM_I’s fearless, forward-looking ethos, the silhouettes seek to overturn all that we believe we know about sneaker design. The Run Loubi Run is Christian Louboutin’s gift to the intrepid women of the new generation.

During the songwriting process, Zion.T isn’t afraid to throw away ideas. Having too many of them can be overwhelming so, to avoid creative blocks, he edits his thoughts as he creates. It’s a phase of his process that Zion.T likens to “purging,” describing it as the body’s natural way of narrowing down ideas to find best fit for his songs. His body of work is the culmination of his best ideas, with his latest works being heavily influenced by the city of Seoul. According to the artist, the capital’s high-energy lifestyle never fails to inspire, from its spectacular city views to its dreamy lights that shimmer in a multitude of colors.
