All that glitters is gold…
Our dearest Zoe Gitter put on another of her private dinners in New York last Saturday evening at Better Days, exploring the relationship between food and music, and how beautiful it is to nourish our bodies amongst friends in joy.
Food is the energy that creates life. Our lives are understood via the five senses. We need to enlighten these senses to create joyful environments at the dining table, to celebrate the energy we are taking in.
Different music was played for every dish served, to nourish our ears, nourish our brains, so our stomachs were ready to be nourished by the beautiful food cooked by Zoe and friends.
Our hearts and stomachs are still full. And this is only the beginning.
Bec and Alix have become a formidable DJ duo lately, and were asked by The Whitney museum to DJ an exclusive evening celebrating The Andy Warhol exhibition.

Les Filles collaborated with John Hardy Jewellry for their latest campaign ‘Dragon Girl Records’.
A dragon woman is bold, fierce, full of fire, a champion of others, a catalyst of social and positive change, and brings life, strength and encouragement to help remind those she surrounds that the process is a journey.
John Hardy identified the women of Les Filles to each embody this definition, and asked that Les Filles both be the face of their campaign shot by Emma Craft, and DJ the store openings with Neiman Marcus.
You can see the roll out of the campaign via the John Hardy social channels.
Les Filles worked with the new luxury bag brand L.O.N.B. to create the sonic identity for their flagship store in London, and work on a media strategy to immerse the brand into the music community as they prepare to launch in Bergdorf Goodman and Barneys.
For the flagship store, Les Filles identified that there needed to be different energy levels created for the different days and times of the week. Fourteen playlists were created, for time slots of 10am-3pm and 3pm-7pm every day. These playlists are to be updated monthly.
The media strategy Les Filles has created to have L.O.N.B. immerse itself into the music community, involves bringing in every month a musician or esteemed industry professional who has been identified as representing the brands DNA, to create a playlist, that fits within the L.O.N.B. world.
The collaborators coming on board via the Les Filles network include: Rodaidh McDonald (music producer of The XX, Sampha, David Byrne etc), Jamie XX, Caroline Polacheck, and more.
Here is the initial L.O.N.B. sonic identity playlist.
