If you think you’ve missed Game of Thrones after that lackluster finale in 2019, it’s nothing compared to how much Game of Thrones has missed you. The defining fantasy series for years—and a harbinger of capital, cultural and otherwise, for HBO—Game of Thrones was one of the last few bastions of appointment viewing, a cultural phenomenon that was practically criminal not to watch.

So, it’s not exactly surprising to learn HBO is eager to haul us all back to Westeros (and beyond). After months of drama surrounding the final season of GoT and its multiple prequel series, HBO finally officially ordered a spinoff, House of the Dragon. (Of course it’s about the Targaryens.) Initially, according to HBO programming chief Casey Boys, the series would have a “likely” 2022 premiere date, which has now solidified into a real one: August 21, 2022.

Here’s everything we know about the series and its new star.

What’s it about?

House of the Dragon is based on George R. R. Martin’s book about the history of the Targaryen family, Fire & Blood. It’s set 300 years before the events of Game of Thrones, and according to the book’s description, answers such questions as, “What really happened during the Dance of the Dragons? Why was it so deadly to visit Valyria after the Doom? What were Maegor the Cruel’s worst crimes? What was it like in Westeros when dragons ruled the skies?” The Dance of the Dragons was a Targaryen civil war that affected all of Westeros, and Entertainment Weekly reports the new series will chronicle that event.

Who’s involved?

Fire & Blood: 300 Years Before a Game of Thrones (a Targaryen History)

Martin and screenwriter Ryan Condal co-created the series, and Condal will serve as showrunner alongside director Miguel Sapochnik, who directed six episodes of Game of Thrones including “The Long Night,” aka the Battle of Winterfell. Sara Lee Hess will write the script alongside Condal, with both serving as executive producers alongside Martin, Sapochnik, and Vince Gerardis. Clare Kilner, Geeta V. Patel, and Greg Yaitanes are all slated to direct, per Deadline.

The first official casting announcement arrived in October 2020, with Deadline reporting that Paddy Considine (The Outsider) will play King Viserys Targaryen, the chosen successor of Westeros following the reign of King Jaehaerys Targaryen. The character is described as a “warm, kind and decent man” whose goal is to gracefully follow in his grandfather’s footsteps. “But good men do not necessarily make for great kings,” the description warns.

In December, four more joined the cast, including an alum of The Crown. Matt Smith, who played Prince Philip in seasons 1 and 2 of the Netflix juggernaut, is set to play Prince Daemon Targaryen, according to Deadline. Olivia Cooke will take on the role of Alicent Hightower, while Emma D’Arcy will play Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen.

On February 11, 2021, Deadline confirmed Steve Toussaint would play the role of Lord Corlys Velaryon, whose character sounds a lot like Littlefinger from the original series; Deadline reports Velaryon is also known as “the Sea Snake” and served as hand to Queen Rhaenyra Targaryen during the war. “As ‘The Sea Snake,’ the most famed nautical adventurer in the history of Westeros,” the site reports, “Lord Corlys built his house into a powerful seat that is even richer than the Lannisters and that claims the largest navy in the world.”

Rhys Ifans will play Otto Hightower: “The Hand of the King, Ser Otto loyally and faithfully serves both his king and his realm,” according to Deadline. “As the Hand sees it, the greatest threat to the realm is the king’s brother, Daemon, and his position as heir to the throne.”

Eve Best will play Princess Rhaenys Velaryon, “a dragonrider and wife to Lord Corlys Velaryon.” Known as ‘The Queen Who Never Was,’ Rhaenys “was passed over as heir to the throne at the Great Council because the realm favored her cousin, Viserys, simply for being male.”

Next, Sonoya Mizuno will play Mysaria. She “came to Westeros with nothing and has been sold more times than she can recall. She could have wilted…but instead she rose to become the most trusted—and most unlikely—ally of Prince Daemon Targaryen, the heir to the throne.”

Fabien Frankel also joined House of the Dragon as Ser Criston Cole, a “major role,” according to a 2021 Deadline report. “Of Dornish descent, he is the common-born son of the steward to the Lord of Blackhaven. Cole has no claim to land or titles; all he has to his name is his honor and his preternatural skill with a sword.”

In May 2021, The Hollywood Reporter confirmed Outlander actor Graham McTavish is officially starring in the prequel, though McTavish could not reveal his role. “It’s great, but I can’t tell you too much,” he told the UK magazine Stylist. “I can’t tell you really anything about the story! But it involves a lot of dragons.”

Finally, Deadline confirmed Milly Alcock (Reckoning) and Emily Carey (Wonder Woman) have joined the cast in recurring roles. Alcock will play the young Princess Rhaenra Targaryen, while Carey will tackle young Alicent Hightower, the daughter of Otto Hightower.

What do we know about production?

We previously saw leaked pictures from set. It seems the show filmed in Cornwall, England, as D’Arcy and Smith were spotted on Holywell Bay beach in their iconic Targaryen costumes. And according to the Daily Mail, it appears likely that the medieval castle at St. Michael’s Mount on Mount’s Bay in Cornwall will serve as an important set piece, perhaps even as the Targaryen home.

And on May 5, 2021, HBO shared a real gift with the world: the first three stills from House of the Dragon.

HBO also released official character descriptions for some of the main players.

Emma D’Arcy as Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen: The king’s first-born child, she is of pure Valyrian blood, and she is a dragonrider. Many would say that Rhaenyra was born with everything… but she was not born a man.

Matt Smith as Prince Daemon Targaryen: The younger brother to King Viserys and heir to the throne. A peerless warrior and a dragonrider, Daemon possesses the true blood of the dragon. But it is said that whenever a Targaryen is born, the gods toss a coin in the air…

Steve Toussaint as Lord Corlys Velaryon, “The Sea Snake”: Lord of House Velaryon, a Valyrian bloodline as old as House Targaryen. As “The Sea Snake,” the most famed nautical adventurer in the history of Westeros, Lord Corlys built his house into a powerful seat that is even richer than the Lannisters and that claims the largest navy in the world.

Olivia Cooke as Alicent Hightower: The daughter of Otto Hightower, the Hand of the King, and the most comely woman in the Seven Kingdoms. She was raised in the Red Keep, close to the king and his innermost circle; she possesses both a courtly grace and a keen political acumen.

Rhys Ifans as Otto Hightower: The Hand of the King, Ser Otto loyally and faithfully serves both his king and his realm. As the Hand sees it, the greatest threat to the realm is the king’s brother, Daemon, and his position as heir to the throne.

When will it air?

House of the Dragon premieres on Sunday, August 21, on HBO and HBO Max. By then, it’ll be over three years since the Game of Thrones finale.

Is there a trailer?

On October 5, HBO Max shared the first teaser for House of the Dragon, complete with the stunning set design and ominous music Game of Thrones was known for. The short video offers viewers a first look at numerous characters in action, including Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen, who looks uncannily like Emilia Clarke’s Daenerys. Watch the teaser below.

How many episodes will there be?

There will be 10 episodes total, and fans speculate the show will not only include the famed Dance of the Dragons, but also the funeral of Laena Velaryon, of whom Rhaenyra Targaryen (D’Arcy) was a friend. The only daughter of Rhaenys Targaryen, Laena dies in childbirth, and from leaked pictures of a sarcophagus on set, GoT enthusiasts have sussed out it could belong to Laena.

What about the other Game of Thrones prequels?

In May of 2017, HBO had five different prequel scripts in development from writers Max Borenstein, Bryan Cogman (who wrote 11 episodes of the original series), Jane Goldman, Brian Helgeland, and Carly Wray.

In July 2018, Bloys revealed at TCA that all scripts except Goldman’s were either shuttered or postponed. However, Deadline reported that Goldman’s show, starring Naomi Watts and covering the “Age of Heroes” and the first war with the White Walkers, would not move to series, despite shooting a pilot in June and rounding out a cast including Jamie Campbell Bower, Miranda Richardson, Naomi Ackie, and Josh Whitehouse.

When asked about the canceled project at TCA in January 2020, Bloys told Variety, “Pilots—sometimes they come together, sometimes they don’t. And I would say that was very much the case here. There’s nothing I would point to and say ‘Oh, this was the problem.’”

“That [prequel] was 8,000 years before the current show, so it required a lot more invention,” he continued. “One of the benefits of House of the Dragon is there was a text from George and there was a little bit more of a roadmap. [Goldman’s prequel] did have more challenges in terms of establishing a world, but I think she handled that beautifully… there wasn’t one glaring thing.”

House of the Dragon is the only show with a series order, and it will build on the story by Cogman even though he’s no longer involved, according to The Hollywood Reporter. THR also reports that another unnamed prequel is still in development at HBO.

What about the play? Is it a prequel?

Yes, you heard correctly—there’s a Game of Thrones play headed for Broadway. Expected to launch in 2023, the performance will feature writing from Martin himself, as well as playwright Duncan MacMillan, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Unlike House of the Dragon, the play will not begin hundreds of years before Game of Thrones, choosing to start only 16 years prior to the first episode’s events.

The as-yet-untitled script will follow The Great Tourney at Harrenhal, a contest that set in motion many of the events of GoT. In the tournament, Prince Rhaegar Targaryen was proclaimed champion of the joust, and he placed his laurel wreath of blue winter roses in the lap of Lyanna Stark, who was then betrothed to Robert Baratheon. The act led credence to the possibility of their love affair. If you remember the scandal at the heart of GoT, everyone’s favorite bastard, Jon Snow, is, in fact, the son of Lyanna and Rhaegar, making him heir to the Targaryen throne. Which means this particular joust is one we’d all love to watch.

“Virgil Abloh: ‘Figures Of Speech’” Exhibit Invites Viewers To “Question Everything”

#Virgil #Abloh #Figures #Speech #Exhibit #Invites #Viewers #Question

The show — loosely broken into sections like architecture, music, design, and fashion —  still holds the clothing racks full of pieces from Abloh’s first fashion venture, Pyrex Vision, and the Milan-based label that he founded in 2013, Off-White. There is still the striped dress Abloh created for Beyoncé’s 2018 Vogue cover shoot (it didn’t appear in the magazine). There is still the Nike shoe display from when the sportswear giant enlisted the multidisciplinary creative to redesign 10 of its most famous footwear styles in 2017. Yet, unlike typical exhibits, there is barely any signage accompanying the pieces, as if inviting viewers to be a “tourist or a purist,” a point of view that Abloh employed during his design process. Depending on how much you know about Abloh, or whether you want to consult the brochure the museum hands you upon entry or make your own assumptions about the items displayed, you can land in either of the camps.

Exclusive: Football Casuals: How To Wear Terrace Fashion – TalkOfNews.com

#Football #Casuals #Wear #Terrace #Fashion

Ordinarily, getting kitted out head to toe in your most expensive clothing might be something you’d reserve for a date, a wedding or a black-tie event. However, if you were a devotee of terrace fashion, a matchday trip to the pub would be the only excuse you’d need to get yourself suited and booted.

Of course, by “suit” we mean a grand’s worth of designer Italian outerwear and by “boots” we’re referring to hen’s-teeth-rare Adidas trainers. Because the terrace lads’ definition of finery is a far cry from your standard Savile Row tailoring.

Followers of this subcultural movement refer to themselves as “casuals”. To the layman, they’re football fans who choose to clad themselves in designer “casual” clothing rather than their team’s colours. In the early days of the late 1970s, this was done in order to more easily infiltrate rival firms for fights – something that has seen the term become synonymous with hooliganism and thuggery.

But not all casuals are or were hellbent on weekend, lager-fuelled barbarity. For many, their love for the scene revolves around the fashion and music. Scratch below the surface and you’ll find there’s more to terrace fashion than just flying fists and Stone Island logos. In fact, the scene has influenced modern menswear in ways you probably weren’t even aware of.

The Rise Of The Casuals

Terrace fashion has its roots in the late 1970s. The success of English football clubs saw young fans travelling overseas to Europe for matches and developing a taste for new and exotic sportswear in the process. They brought it back home, others saw and wanted it, and so the cycle began. This was really the beginning of hype sportswear.

The subculture developed its own uniform and a selection of core brands. “Farah, Lois, Diadora, Nike, Adidas, Puma, Sergio Tacchini, Fila, Ellesse, Cerutti 1881, Australian, Lacoste, Lyle and Scott, Pringle, Kappa,” says Neil Primett, owner of 80s Casual Classics, a dedicated casual shop that has supplied wardrobe to films such as The FirmThis Is England and The Business. “These are the labels that made up the outfit of your typical 1979-to-1985 casual.

“Exactly where it started is more difficult to say. I could not pin this on any one place.”

Many credit Manchester as the birthplace of terrace fashion, others namecheck Liverpool. Wherever it began, one thing was for certain: this new way of dressing was offering young, working-class men a space where they could engage with fashion.

“Then we got into one-upmanship,” says Primett. “It was all about who had the best and the latest gear. You might have started out wanting the best Patrick football boots to be like the best footballer. Next thing you know you were after the latest must-have Patrick cagoule. And so it continued.”

Young Football Fans 1980s

The Evolution Of Terrace Fashion

The one-upmanship meant that terrace fashion evolved quickly, especially during the 80s. “The style changed rapidly and dramatically,” recalls Gary Aspden, a footwear designer and brand consultant for Adidas, and cult figure in terrace fashion. “It went from skin-tight jeans to flares to a tapered fit to a 501 fit to a loose, baggy fit – all in the space of a decade. It would literally change overnight. It was street fashion in the truest sense. You had to be part of it to keep up with it.”

The Firm 2009

During the 90s, cornerstone brands such as Sergio Tacchini and Fila gave way to the likes of Stone Island and CP Company. High-end names, such as Prada, Burberry, Aquascutum and Gucci also began to creep into the stands as casuals continued in their bid to outdo each other.

However, the constant peacocking wasn’t to last. The advent of new technology and online auctions saw previously rare items becoming more easily obtainable and the casual look plateaued. “The playing field is so different to how it was when I was a teenager,” says Aspden. “And that’s down to the internet.

“Nowadays casual style has a much more set look and whilst it still exists there isn’t the same urgency in the style one-upmanship that used to go on. The only two brands I can think of that had the longevity to maintain their relevance right the way through were Adidas and Lacoste.”

Terrace Fashion In Modern Menswear

Today, terrace fashion has swaggered out of the stands and into the mainstream. Brands that once had heavy links to football violence have shaken off those negative connotations and become more accessible. It’s the result of the casual look moving beyond its sports-tribe roots and becoming a lifestyle for style-conscious men.

It’s something that Aspden recognises from his work on Adidas’ Spezial line – a collection of clothing that has been bringing casual style to a wider audience. “With Spezial we acknowledged that there is a hardcore Adidas-dedicated audience here in the UK and across Northern Europe that has its roots in casual style and bears little relation the sneakerhead-hype-basketball-inspired sportswear culture that permeates the US.”

Music has also had a huge part to play in opening the casual uniform up to a wider audience. The advent of acid house in the late 1980s and early 1990s brought sportier styles and big logos into the spotlight, while artists such as Liam Gallagher, the Stone Roses and Kasabian have all played a part in keeping the style alive today.

Terrace Trainer Culture

The word “sneakerhead” probably isn’t something you’d tend to associate with the rain-battered terraces of English football clubs, but trainer culture is rife in this country thanks to the casuals. However, while traditional sneaker enthusiasts fawn over all things Nike and New Balance, for the terrace fashion set there’s only one brand worth striving for.

“Adidas has always made the best football products and for me that is at the root of it,” says Aspden. “Where I grew up, when the whole terrace thing kicked off in the late 1970s, it was young kids that adopted the brand’s football shoes as a fashion staple.”

Most of Aspden’s generation were introduced to Adidas footwear through football shoes like the Kick, the Mamba, the Bamba and the Samba. As the 1980s rolled on, all manner of Adidas styles became popular – not just football-inspired models. “We were wearing everything from tennis, running, training, indoor and even the leisure shoes that Adidas made at that time,” Aspden remembers. “There was also a huge subculture of kids travelling over to Switzerland, Austria and Germany to get hold of Adidas trainers that weren’t available in the UK.”

Adidas Samba

After spotting the demand, savvy retailers such as Liverpool’s Wade Smith and Manchester’s Oasis (not the band) circumvented the company and began importing Adidas shoes themselves. This opened things up to a wider audience and made copping rare trainers more manageable for UK enthusiasts, further cementing the brand with the three stripes as the go-to for casual footwear.

“I think most terrace lads like the simplicity of that Adidas aesthetic from the 70s and 80s,” Aspden adds. “Adidas footwear is synonymous with casual style in the same way that Doc Martens are synonymous with skinheads.”

It’s a trend as evergreen as Converse All-Stars, but even so, the modern obsession with retro sneakers has brought 80s and 90s styles back into fashion.

Key Pieces

The typical terracewear aficionado’s wardrobe will be packed to bursting point with expensive coats, technical jackets and rare trainers. However, the bulk of it can be divided up into seven distinct categories. These are the key styles you need to know about.

Description

Mac

If you’ve ever been unfortunate enough to have seen Green Street, there are likely two things you remember about Charlie Hunnam’s football-firm-boss character. Number one: his shockingly badly acted Cockney accent. And number two: his pristine, Stone Island trench coat.

In the 1980s, casuals made a move toward British luxury brands, the two main ones being Burberry and Aquascutum. These two labels are known for producing some of the finest long-length outerwear and it wasn’t long before beige, knee-length coats were flooding football grounds.

In more recent years, the style has lost ground to more technical styles but still remains a cornerstone of casual culture.

Hooded Jacket

The north-west of England is arguably the spiritual home of terrace fashion. Rainy, outerwear-loving cities like Manchester and Liverpool gave rise to the casuals and as such, the scene’s affinity for anoraks and cagoules is deep rooted.

Terrace fashion is about two key things: who’s go the best clobber, and keeping the elements at bay while watching the match. This set of requirements has seen high-quality, high-end hooded jackets become the defining garment of the scene. Brands like Stone Island and CP Company have become the gold standards, but sailing and outdoor brands such as Henri Lloyd, Fjallraven and Paul & Shark are also popular.

Track Jacket

Before all the Aquascutum trench coats and CP Company goggle jackets, the humble track jacket reigned supreme in the casual’s wardrobe. This sporty, retro piece is still a common sight at matches today, but it was when fans started bringing tracksuits back from trips to Europe in the late 1970s that it really go a foothold in the subculture.

Italian brands like Sergio Tacchini, Ellesse and Fila soon came to define the look. The fact that these names weren’t available in the UK at the time only made them all the more appealing to young football fans keen to outdo one another in the fashion stakes.

Jeans

While corduroy trousers and even flares have enjoyed waves of popularity in terrace fashion, it’s straight-leg denim that has prevailed. Ever since the early days in Liverpool, jeans have ruled the roost and as the casual look continues to evolve, so does its followers’ taste in denim.

Traditionally, mid-wash and stonewash fabric from Emporio Armani was probably the most widely worn – almost an afterthought to an expensive jacket and nice pair of trainers. However, today’s terrace-fashion aficionados are more clued up on their weights and wefts, often opting for heavy, raw denim from dedicated brands like Edwin and Nudie.

Scarf

A multipurpose accessory, useful for both keeping the chill off on wintery terraces and obscuring faces before and after a post-match scuffle, the scarf is deeply entrenched into the casual way of life.

Often worn to cover the nose and mouth, checks and tartans are what it’s all about. British brands, such as Burberry, Aquascutum and Barbour are all popular choices and are still a common sight at football grounds today.

Cap

For those casuals intent on fighting, baseball caps have always provided another handy means of keeping their faces hidden from CCTV cameras and police patrols. This practical use has seen the cap permeate terrace fashion making it the headwear of choice for for both violent and peaceful terrace lads alike.

Again, Burberry is a favourite brand, due to its luxury price tag and distinctive all-over check branding. Meanwhile, Polo Ralph Lauren and Lacoste are solid options at the lower end of the price spectrum.

Trainers

Terrace fashion is probably at least fifty per cent about the trainers. Having the most sought-after kicks is a huge part of causal culture and although the Reebok Classic is a staple option, it’s Adidas that rules the roost as far as footwear is concerned.

Classics like the Gazelle and the Samba have remained popular over the years. But during the early years, young fans were often travelling back and forth to Germany to pick up rare models that couldn’t be found in the UK.

What’s one of my favorite wear-with-anything pieces? Faux-croc shoes.

Crocodile-effect shoes have long been a favorite on the runway, on the street style scene, and in outfits that pop up on my Instagram feed. The magical thing about this shoe trend is that it feels endlessly elevated and elegant, but instead of having to invest major dollars in it, you can get expensive-looking mock-croc shoes for a fraction of what the real deal would cost.
