EP Exsonvaldes: a good EP to win to start this new year

Share the love

There are songs that wake you up, songs that make you dance. There are songs you listen like a nice treat, in your iPod, when it’s cold outside.

There are bands that are part of your individual story. And it’s the case with the French band, Exsonvaldes. Founded in 2000, the gang has played in hundreds of French, German or Spanish scenes. They’ll release their new album, “Lights” on March 18th. But until then, WE have the chance to offer you 2 EP of their song “DAYS”.

Montblanc Worldsecond: a journey around the world, around the clock

Share the love

What if you could know exactly what’s going on in a far, far country? What if you could not sleep at night and that you decided to open your smartphone, to check someone’s mood in Australia? Even better: what if you could record time?

That’s the purpose of the Montblanc Worldsecond, a unique photo-by-photo journey around the world, fueled by imagination and creativity. The Greek used to split Chronos (numeric time) and Kairos (the opportune moment). It seems like the 2 are now fused.

On December, 31, all our Worldseconds will form a mosaic, a pulse of mood, snapshots. A celebration of beauty by people. You can download the app for Android and iPhone; two winners will be awarded: the photographer of the single image, as well as the contributor of the most creative photo gallery, compiled from the most inspiring pictures on the website. The winner in each category – Worldsecond Photo and Worldsecond Gallery – will receive a watch from the TimeWalker collection, a “Nicolas Rieussec”, in reference to the famous French watchmaker, who invented the chronograph in 1822.

The Chase by BlackBerry + Glam

Share the love

When I was younger and that I started my first job in an advertising agency, I got my first BlackBerry. I remember spending hours on the messenger; it was a kind of inner world, which was always there, for any work and any project. Writing some emails in a tube; calling from a foreign country; being alerted when something was in the air. The other thing was that I could shoot myself in front of a mirror to make sure that my outfit was good. A real-life game so to say. When Glam told us about a very special chase we were definitely in because BlackBerry is somehow very related to some of our most exciting moments.

And the good news is that BlackBerry have created a really fun game to highlight the amazing apps available on their new Bold 9790 and Curve 9320 handsets, and what’s more by playing the game you can be in with the chance of winning a brand new BlackBerry 9320 and £250 of shopping vouchers.  Educating, fun and a chance of prizes; what are you waiting for?  Click the link to play now!

Zalando X Le Boulevardier Shopping Contest

Share the love

Fashionisti, assemble! We Boulevardiers have taken our Contests to another level. In this depressing Summer Sale Season, when stores have been looted of all the sizes you were looking for, we have decided to give away 2 pieces of outfit. And guess what, it’s been shopped especially for you by our pro buyer VQ at Zalando. You read right! Massive online shoe retailer has recently opened a selection of designer brands for men and women.

While others were hardcore shopping downstairs, we took an elevator up to a magnificent flat in Paris to shoot a special lookbook about the look we shopped for you readers. A clue about the inspiration? VQ has a crush for comics character Pepper Potts, so he decided that the contemporary corporate outfit set to be given away would be interpreted as: Iron Woman. Get a glimpse at the outfit:

So here’s what at stake for the 2 winners we’ll celebrate.

– 1 pair of Surface to Air dark grey Wedges, size 38. Cult french studio Surface to Air launched its iconic Buckle Sandals a couple seasons ago and are now a sure shot at shoe coolness for all minimal rock ladies around. We thought these unmatchable Wedges would be a definite hit in your wishlists, so here they are, to be seized!

– 1 black Adidas SLVR dress, size M. Because any modern girl needs a little black dress, we looked for a sporty day-dress that would give a punchy twist to any classical corporate outfit. Throw in a strict blazer, grab your iPad and you’re good to go.

How-in-the-hell are we supposed to win these, are you asking?

Very simply: go brag a little on our community forum here in the dedicated topic about your latest/hottest pick in store. Tell us about where you found it, why you heart it and more…

We’ll then pick 2 weeks from now the hottest shopper as a winner.

Ready? Set? Go!

Remarque T-Shirts by Boulevardiers

Share the love

Remarque is a very funny brand: they basically take our Google queries and print on cool t-shirts the suggested results.

So for instance, when you typ Elvis, Google suggests you Elvis songs / Elvis Biography …And you typ “My Ex” well, it goes pretty weird: “My ex keeps calling” or “my ex cheated on me”…

We had some fun with my gf and we did this quick shooting. If you ever want to get one t-shirt, well, you can add a comment and we’ll arrange a meeting in Shoreditch to give the T.

I Love Paris: photographers with depth

Share the love

IFA Paris organised a wonderful photography contest; the idea was to promote Paris’ beauty; the winners could get a ticket for IFA annual fashion show…And it’s starting to be one of the most interesting catwalks, as it reveals Asian talents…

The 2 winners are not beginners at all; they figured out how to sublime Paris, and a certain idea of woman. Very original, very chocking and moving: congrats.

Here are their works:

 

Alex Lua Kaczkowska / Under the Bridge

The 1rst winner with 210 votes: Under the bridge by Alex Lua Kaczkowska; a sensual black & white picture, which reminds us some nouvelle vague movies with a modern figure. Lose yourself in her website, Alex has an amazing talent.

Pierre Thevenard / Palais de Tokyo

The 2nd winner chosen by the jurys: ”Palais de Tokyo” by Pierre Thevenard. Pierre had the great idea to flip flop Paris. And it suddenly opens a whole new universe, not that crazy as “when you sit down, you see the world with other feelings” used to say a good friend.

Here we go!
