This week, we’ve collected some inspiring other-worldly work from illustrators, artists and a French fashion house with Japanese flair. Just a small reminder to stay wonderfully weird.

A new kind of key visual

Is it a brand movie? Is it a moving key visual? Who knows. But it’s surreal and hypnotic and it features a phoenix. Kenzo’s SS19 ‘moving spaces’ are said to be inspired by communion, celebration and optimism, with three distinct ‘realms’. It’s weird. It’s new. The final question, then: do you like it?

Destination desert

Something fresh out of the Coachella Desert that doesn’t feature leather shorts or feathers: DesertX is a sprawling installation across a valley, with monumental sculptures that includes a rainbow arch, a digital landscape simulation and set of stairs to nowhere.
