FRANK GEHRY’S BIO MUSEUM

Posted on June 30, 2014 by Luisa Fazio

That “confused” genius of Frank Gehry has struck again! Ignoring order and linearity, the “the dream maker”, as defined by director Sydney Pollack, has designed another marvel which is, as usual, abstract and asymmetrical. Our impression is that the newborn creature is made up of colorful crumpled clippings suddenly broken away from a painting by Piet Mondrian. How do you fell about that? It’s “just” the Panama Bio Museum. Eight galleries to celebrate a rich biodiversity on Panama’s Isthmus, a small strip that divides Atlantic Ocean from Pacific Ocean. The same strip that long ago, very long ago, allowed osmosis and meeting wildlife species between the two  Americans sub-continents. Once separated, then reunited by earthquakes, American Continents saw a mass escape of animals, which took place three million years ago, that gave birth to a rare and precious ecosystem.  After 10 years of work  the Gehry’s prehistoric dream is due to open.

EDEN AND AFTER, NAN GOLDIN

Posted on June 26, 2014 by Isabella Cecconi

What would you expect from Nan Goldin? I would say something insane! In her constant evolving images, the brand new collection of photographs of children, is an astonishing happy-loving project, quite mesmerizing to my eyes. Being one of the world’s most influential contemporary photographers with a loyal love for intimate/provocative works, Eden and After demonstrates that flash lights can give space to real lights, that drug addicts can be switched with beautiful kids. Some photographs depict children alone, others show them in familial and social groups. From pregnancy and newborns through to teenagers, some subjects have been documented by Nan through their entire lives. The book may  look sweet from the outside, but underneath the playful photos of children runs a deeply tale about the joy and power of childhood and the inevitable end to the freedom that comes with it. Goldin seeks out the secrets children seem to hold, hoping to reveal something about children that is both deeply hidden and transparently evident.

MY MIYAKE PINK DRESS

Posted on June 25, 2014 by Clara G

To move, run, jump … dance: to dance! Pleats Please clothes are made for movement, can only be understood in movement. Issey Miyake developed the idea while designing costumes for a Dance Company in the early 90s and, as a result of his technical and conceptual investigation, he created a new line of very functional, organic, timeless and resistant clothes. He called it Pleats Please, like a beg and also a play on words.

Pleats Please garments are always the same but different at the same time. Removing any economical, social, sexual or even fashion connotation,  Miyake gave a new option, a new uniform and made a silent revolution creating them. They are clothes but not only: they are so simple, so powerful. Since they appeared I’ve been collecting Pleats Please clothes because I find them really interesting. Pleats give beauty to the fabric, creating three-dimensional effects, embracing and revealing the body in a delicate way that I love.

By being worn by me, Pleats Please is not action, color and simplicity. All my Pleats Please, like dress in picture above, seem to be more reflective and static, even classic.  I don’t feel disappointed, I like them. They reflect the importance of what I am wearing and, off course, the way I’m.

EMERSON COOPER

Posted on June 24, 2014 by Editorial Staff

“Mending the Labyrinth” is and extensive body of work by artist Emerson Cooper for the first time as a solo show in New York. Emerson Cooper is a vintage photographs and Victorian cabinet cards collector. His work start from the transformation of these photos into meticulously constructed, psychologically charged artworks by using a mix of thread, paint, collage or digital manipulation. Used widely from the mid-19th century after the invention of albumen prints by Louis Désiré Blanquart-Evrard, the cabinet card remains a familiar visual object. Contemporaneous to the use of cabinet cards were the psychoanalytical theories of Freud and the high point of public interest in freak shows, and Cooper recalls these areas of interest simultaneously. Cooper’s images often allude to the sinister and plunge us headlong into the depths of identity and psyche, the real and the unreal, and the anguish of memory.

You are practical. You like to be beautiful. Yo do yoga. You go jogging. You like open air. You like “couturish” cuts on your sporty moment. You like the pastel palette that dives into neon. You like experimental fabrics. You like to wear it with a “party dress”. You like freedom and you like the fact that this collaboration is continuing and getting better. You never get upset if you boyfriend wears your fabulous pink windbreakers. You don’t go to the hairdresser, you can’t stand high heels. You, keep an eye on Stella McCartney  x Adidas collection.

A TREE HOUSE, THE DREAM OF EVERY DREAMER

Posted on June 17, 2014 by Luisa Fazio

Built since most ancient civilizations. Moghul Emperors sat on the “chabutra” between the branches of their beloved sycamores. Japanese, instead, built “walking trees” in order can to admire autumn leaves and colors. In the Middle Ages, monks and hermits used to retreat often on trees. Living in a tree house it’s the dream of every child and fans of the Jungle Book by Kipling, for sure would love to part of Bandar – Log’s happy tribe. The group of monkeys that had freedom, so much freedon none other animals had: they can fly between trunks and leaves, where no one could reach them. This meant secrecy, independence, refuge. Today, thanks to the joint of architects, cabinet makers, academics, carpenters, agronomists, we are scattered on every continent buildings floating in the sky. For which, the trees become their foundation. In Peruvian amazon there is one shaped like a bird’s nest. In Japan there is a house surrounded by pink cherry blossoms that rises into the clouds leaning from a single trunk of cypress. They are recognition of the needs and spirit of our times: who would not want to find a place to rest at half height? A place to stay for dreaming and reading in touch with nature? I’d like to have a shelter in the trees instead of the usual, customary, swimming pool. With a rope ladder to pull up in those particular periods “off limits” during which we don’t like to get down with feet on the ground. Years pass by but the tree house never looses its charm.

MöDERNAKED

Posted on June 4, 2014 by Marco Maggetto

It may sound Swedish, and look like, but Mödernaked is a Spanish Brand producing fabulous backpacks, hats, totes and jewellery. I liked them. Plenty of accessory brands out there, but these backpacks, photographed in Portugal by Filipa Alves, really stand out. When something comes out from the bunch, believe me, it’s a matter of panache and self confidence. This Spanish brand seems to posses both. Just have a detailed look on the “finissage” and get your favorited flowered fabric. Ideal to go to down to the beach in a romantic  aura and for the next back to school season. Amplified flower power.

Where are you from? Our creative team is formed by two Spanish girls and a Portuguese girl. We have our studio / atelier based in Matarranya – the Spanish mediterranean – considered to be the Spanish Tuscany. Although we live between Lisbon and Saragossa.

When did you found the Brand? We established our brand at the beginning of 2012.

What is your ideal client? We create our products for a Mö Girl, for a young girl that likes music, dance, traveling, and that appreciates well crafted products, that stands out from other commercial brands. Mödernaked is handcrafted lifestyle.

Where do you get those amazing fabrics? We source our fabrics from several providers; some are collected in our travels, others are designed and printed by us.
