DAMN! THAT’S A BIG ASS BOOK!

Ecriture1.jpg

All I know is that that’s a big ass book and I want to jot, doodle, scribble, transcript, and scribe on it.

Starting at Tokyo’s Mori Art Museum in 2006, Cameroon-born artist Bili Bidjocka and Lausanne-born curator Simon Njami have been traversing the world inviting creatives of varied professional backgrounds to write on the blank pages of eight enormous books “as if it were their the last opportunity to hand write something.” Their project, called Ecriture Infinie, emphasizes the gestures of writing and the flow of pen on paper rather than actual content.

Olivier Rousteing Is Taking The Reigns

A few days late I know, but its still good to see a person of color do their thang in the harsh world of fashion. CHEERS!

After a period of uncertainty, we have the official news: Olivier Rousteing, a French designer who grew up in Bordeaux, is Balmain’s new Creative Director.
Christophe Decarnin left the fashion house following some health problems that stopped him attending the 2011-12 show. The firm has just formalised the role of the new designer, who will oversee both menswear and the women’s collection.
The designer has been a member of the Balmain team since 2009. He previously worked at Roberto Cavalli, designing the men’s and women’s ready-to-wear lines for the Florence-based firm.

Video: Write On The Water

Writing on water is like writing down a thought in order to keep it secure even when it is shaken by the course of life, to distinguish the important things from those you should just let flow by.

Think thoughtless.
Happiness happens.

Video: NYT Style Magazine Film “Marcelo Does Milan”

A great look into Milan fashion, which is also one of dopest fashion cities in the world, so take heed to the info in this video.

HighSnob:

The other day we came across a fantastic video of our friend Marcelo Burlon from Milan. Since The New York Times did not allow embedding, we had to ask him to upload it for us, so that we can share with you. Entitled “Marcelo Does Milan”, the ex magazine editor, turned stylist, DJ, party organizer (Pink Is Punk), blogger digs deep into the Milanese fashion scene. The video gives a great history of the Milan fashion and music scene, as well as the development of a new scene in recent years

Belvest S/S 2011

For S/S 2011 the Belvest man is one with “emotional style full of personal invention.”  Inspired by the botanical gardens of Padua,Belvest is exploring themes of elegance alongside their trademark made in Italy quality and craftsmanship.  The fits seen below strengthen Belvest’s claims as the primer Italian brand offering tailored options for a youth oriented market.  The jackets are shorter, fit closer to the body and the trousers are decidedly slim.  The key piece for S/S 2011 is, what Belvest is calling, their “New Drape” jacket.  Much like the best warm weather jackets coming out of Italy, the “New Drape” is completely unpadded, fits like your favorite shirt (“falls across the body in loose folds”) and takes both it’s name and inspiration from the drape sleeve.

Logomo Cafe


From the mind of Tobias Rehberger, comes this mind-bending and cataract-inducing installation his collaborated with Artek. He transforms the interior of a cafe in Finland into this brain-fuckery. Come to find out this is Rehberger’s second time doing an installation like this. Prior to his latest, the designer created a visually disorientating environment for the cafeteria at the Palazzo delle Esposizioni. Regardless, although I think its brilliant, I would never eat there while hungover.


The Rehberger installation will be on view December 18, 2011 at the Logomo Cafe in Turku, Finland.
