Youjia Jin is a Chinese born London-based fashion designer and fashion buyer who graduated with an MA in Womenswear from the London College Of Fashion in 2014. Her graduation collection has been presented at London Fashion Week.
Her predominantly monochrome Spring/Summer 2015 collection is elegant and sophisticated.
Brussels-based photographer Jeffrey Vanhoutte created this stunning project featuring an contemporary dancer displaying various expressive poses that seem to be frozen in time. He captured beautifully the dancer’s elegant movements with expressive bursts of white powder. You can see the making-of below.
As the name of the collection indicates, WOO may stand for interjection of motion, interjection of amazement, or an abbreviation coming out of english word WOOD.
WOO are more objects than toys. By combination of massive wood, luxurious surface varnish and bent veneer the Czech design and architecture studio Vrtíška Žák achieved a great dynamic effect in these three vehicles, symbolising three natural elements – water, air and ground.
The OKI-NI Spring/Summer 2015 lookbook offers a preview of what’s to come this season. Showcasing the diversity of their curated brand selection, the stripped-back editorial mixes luxurious pieces from Raf Simons, Marc Jacobs and Marni with cutting-edge menswear from Gosha Rubchinskiy, Matthew Miller and Christopher Raeburn.
Located at 60 rue de Verneuil, in the heart of Paris’ antiques quarter, Galerie Negropontes is a new kind of gallery. It is run by lifelong friends Sophie Negropontes and Hervé Langlais, whose ambition it is to revive the tradition of French Decorative Arts.
Galerie Negropontes presents “Tribute to Brâncuşi” a new collection of furniture and glass sculptures by designer Hervé Langlais and glass artists Perrin & Perrin.
Inspired by the human body and its architecture, Berlin-based designer Johanna Schneider rethinks modular design for women’s training for Nike 2015 Spring Collection. Outfits can be built up layer by layer for different stages of a workout, including the transition periods surrounding exercise.
The collection is build to move and interact with a women’s body. The combination of pattern work and materials emphasize this concept of hiding and revealing parts of the body in a very sophisticated way.
2014 has been the year that put Diadora back on the sneaker scene and it’s all thanks to the sublime N9000 silhouette.
Recently, the italian sporting label has teamed up with Berlin-based retailer Solebox and they’ve turned out a refreshing pastel blue and grey dressing – inspired by the city of Venice.
Why Venice? Diadora is located in Giavera del Montello, a municipality that’s about 25 miles away from the watery streets of Venice.
Known as the carpet artist from Azerbaidjan, Faig Ahmed takes the national traditional rugs and reconstructs them to create new patterns and shapes. Ahmed is remixing traditions by subverting the normal usage of rugs as domestic objects to be walked all over, and rejuvenating them with optical illusions and techniques reminiscent of contemporary internet art.
His work is a kind of cultural reclamation – taking an old object of everyday use which is rich in history and transforming it into a new one to be hung in galleries and viewed as an artwork.
