Kehinde Andrews says global inequality is not an accident – it is designed to keep the hierarchy of race intact
By Bruno Rinvolucri

Dead white men are revered by many as responsible for the advancement of civilisation, says sociology professor Kehinde Andrews. But, he argues, this so-called progress came at the expense of millions of people of colour. Global inequality is not an accident, he argues – it is designed to keep the hierarchy of race intact

Our #colouroftheweek is Midnight Blue. We’re still feeling a trend for deep, endless blues and love this magical shade by Lalique, made possible by their technical research into pigments for crystal.

Erin Ashley- "is an internationally renowned artist who has lived in NY, Los Angeles and Florida for most of her life. Self trained painter, Erin has applied her diverse background and experiences to the contemporary arts. Erin Ashley gets her inspiration from things most often over looked. She loves the beauty of how mother nature ages things in a beautiful way, like chipped paint on an old weathered building, rusted metals, train cars etc.  Bringing out the old with the new in her work, enduring a fusion of both has become the hallmark of this rising artist.“

GLOBALIZATION 

Silence of an empty street. 
Down the street, ironically. 
Manufactures closed. 
Abandoned workers. 
Today other hands producing. 
In other places. 
Tomorrow they will be replaced also. 
For someone cheaper. 
Change leaves a trail of poverty. 
An oppressive and frustrating empty. 
Melancholy dusk. 
Product continues to live. 
Consumer does not care about its origin. 
Cost less. 
Single goal to achieve. 
Who manufactures it? 
It does not matter. 
Under what conditions? 
It does not matter. 
Product life cycle continues. 
And so … it continues.

THE TIP-OFF: DAMIAN GAROZZO ON CLINIQUE PINK HONEY

Mp>The Clinique Global Colour Artist recommends how to wear Black Honey’s sweet new sister shade—available in an exclusive All About Shadow 8-Pan Palette and Almost Lipstick.

“For a universally flattering shade that will make any eye color pop, use an eyeliner brush to smudge the deep mahogany shadow along the lashline. Then pat the lightest pink shadow on the inner corners of the eyes to brighten the look. Finish with black mascara, and then dab Almost Lipstick in Pink Honey on the center of your lips using your finger to create the perfect just-bitten stain.” —Damian Garozzo, Clinique Global Colour Artist

Photographer Christopher Payne’s specialism is capturing America’s historic architecture and industrial heritage. In his latest project, Textiles, Payne documents the colourful behind-the-scenes world that is America’s niche textile industry. Celebrating the “craftsmanship and the small-scale manufacturing that is still persevering in the face of changes to the industrial process and global competitions.”

Our #colouroftheweek is Silver Pink. We start 2014 with a beautiful, transient molten tint. Iridescent glass is delicately coloured, creating an almost indefinable metallic shade.
