Camiel Fortgens - Collection 3

Camiel Fortgens presented his new collection in Amsterdam in a living room setting during the SHOW ROOM ROOM SHOW event. 
He presented a menswear collection, in all off-white, based on archetypal garments and elements of garments from different cultures, times and contexts. The collection was shown on man and woman. “Why not, anymore?”. The models walked on home-recorded hip-hop and rap songs through the room. The designer himself changed their outfits at the end of the catwalk in front of the public. There is nothing hidden, all is shown. Nothing is made glamorous, all is real. From the quick hand written invite, the show’s setting, the home recorded rap, to the rough fraying ‘sketched’ garments.

The collection is based on a series of copies of archetypal iconic garments: ‘the Blanks’. These ‘Blanks’ are all executed and united in neutral off-white, bringing together times, places and cultures, from street culture to Victorian style garments. Garments like a hoodie, a tracksuit, grandma pants and a goalkeepers-shirt are copied in white. The whole collection is made with 100% unbleached heavy cotton twill and finished with heavy-duty zips and natural bone buttons. The ‘Blanks’ are the base of the collection. Fortgens works on and around the ‘Blanks’ as he researches garments and it’s reason and norm in fashion and culture. He’s puzzling with element of clothing. He combines a tracksuit jacket with a fraying Victorian collar, a piece of white cloth is roughly sown on to a jacket to make it a coat and a grandma flowers print is roughly painted on to an apron and dinner jacket.

The garments don’t pretend or hide nor try to fit a norm or trend in fashion. The collection shows garments and research on garments and norms in fashion.

Jamaican porn stars models for Hood by Air

PH & HBA 
Shayne Olivier’s latest project is a cooperation with South African photographer Pieter Hugo, capturing the latest Hood by Air collection on Jamaican porn stars. The arresting images are also the subject of a new book.
Pieter Hugo got in the picture with his magnificent images of African communities, ranging from Nigerian gangs walking their pet hyenas to Liberian scouts, via judges in Botswana. For Hood by Air, he captured Jamaican porn stars from Kingston’s Gully Queen gay community, a group of men who ostracized by the patriarchal society in the country, who now live together near a storm drain in the city’s slum district. Sex workers, porn actor and transsexuals all wear Hood by Air in PH & HBA, a poignant and transgressive book available now.





Maison the Faux at New York Fashion Week

Maison the Faux steped it up at the bigger stage with the presentation of 'Chubby Chaser' collection at MADE New York Fashion Week S/S 2017.

“CHUBBY CHASER” is a never ending desire for more, more, more. In the insanely strange world of fashion, fashion houses act as godlike institutions; telling us how to look, act and who we should be. Fashion seems to be a repeating ritual of brands overfeeding us."

Marc Jacobs x Hype Williams - Fall 2016 Campaign Video

Missy Elliott and Marilyn Manson Star in New Marc Jacobs Film 

Marc Jacobs always gets big names for his ads, frequently getting not only models but big names in music industry, too. Previously he's recruited the likes of Sky Ferreira, and for his latest he's got Missy Elliott and Marilyn Manson among others. The newly released short features an eclectic mix of individuals modeling Jacob's new AW16 collection, which sports a rather gothic look which both Mansion and Elliott absolutely nail.
Courtney Love, Cara Delevingne, Genesis P-Orridge, Kendall Jenner, and St. Vincent also star in the clip, with Courtney's look suiting her particularly well. The newly released film comes ahead of Marc Jacobs' SS17 show at New York Fashion Week on September 15.

The video, by legendary music video director Hype Williams, premiered on Billboard—to coincide with the magazine's new Style Issue, featuring Jacobs and St. Vincent, who also appears in the ad along with her model girlfriend, Cara Delevingne.


The video campaign showcases Jacobs' muses-of-the-season posing in the fall collection, which St. Vincent (whose real name is Annie Clark) described as "pretty fantastic—thematic and theatrical." The models are equally entertaining: there's a witchy-looking Kendall Jenner, a seductive Susan Sarandon and even the designer himself smoking a cigarette against a motorcycle, dressed in his own designs (platform boots included) and exhibiting the utmost badass-ery.

Bruce LaBruce x Damien Blottière x PAOM

Print All Over Me (PAOM) presents a collaboration between contemporary artists Bruce LaBruce and Damien Blottière, in the creation of an exclusive apparel collection timed to coincide with LaBruce’s solo retrospective show FAGGOTRY at Lethal Amounts Gallery in Los Angeles.

Damien Blottière was given free reign to use LaBruce’s photographs spanning across his extensive career, including photographs, film stills, movie posters and polaroids as basis for unique, project specific collages that expand on their narrative trough layering, juxtapositions and morphing compositions and shapes. The collages consist of 12 works that portray surreal displays of sexual scenarios, tensions and embodiments, “transmogrifying the subjects into some kind of gendernauts of porn future”. Textual overlays command Queercore manifesta- tions from LaBruce’s iconic writings.

The collection consists of 20 unisex designs, including a bomber jacket, t-shirts, thermal tops, sweaters, button down shirt, windbreaker, polo shirt and accessories. FAGGOTRY at Lethal Arms runs through the month of August. A selection of the items are available at the gallery for sale.

The event is the first of a series of monthly events for brands, filmmakers and producers aimed at shedding light onto the behind the scenes of the lifestyle-driven video industry. The format will involve screening outstanding video content and inviting the creative team behind it to an open discussion as to what made it successful, how the idea came about and how the concept was initially presented to the brands in question.

FENTY PUMA by Rihanna AW16 Collection

Rihanna and Puma remix Japanes street culture with a haunting twist for the FENTY PUMA BY RIHANNA AW 2016 collection

Finally, the wait is over as Rihanna’s inaugural FENTY PUMA by Rihanna apparel, footwear and accessories collection hits stores worldwide beginning September 7th.
No one can forget Rihanna’s debut of this collection last February in New York. Each look was daring, provocative and oozing with attitude and now, it’s available for the world.
Rihanna drew inspiration from contemporary Japanese street culture and tradition for her debut collection with PUMA. Mixing cultural influences with gothic overtones and exaggerated volumes and proportions, the fashion icon challenged the traditional male and female silhouettes and blurred the lines between genders that are often times too rigid for her fashion tastes.

Fans can expect key styles in the first monthly drop including the ground sweeping Mock Neck Maxi Dress and popular Rising Sun Lacing Sweatshirt and Sweatpant. The Tear Away Track Jacket and Pant, Bra and Lace-up skirt will also be making its mark in the stores serving the fashion hungry and function needy. Every inch of her personality is depicted in every element of the range, and definitely not to be worn by the faint hearted. New introductions will follow in October and November, including the original and new FENTY PUMA Creepers, her show-stomping Sneaker Heels and key accessories like the Mesh and Bandana Cap and signature Lace Up Backpack.
“This collection is not only a representation of who I am and how I dress, but also pushes the boundaries of what I wanted to create with PUMA” says Rihanna, “I wanted to take PUMA to a new place with something unpredictable and unexpected. It's Japanese street culture with a haunting twist. I played with texture and silhouettes and all of the fabrics are luxurious. I reinterpreted the traditional in my way.”

Make Yourself Unstoppable - Campaign by Strellson

MAKE YOURSELF UNSTOPPABLE

Strellson Fall/Winter 2016/17 campaign 

The Strellson brand launched its new campaign on a specially chosen date: 5 September, Freddie Mercury's 70th birthday. And not without reason, for at its centre is a music video of the world-famous Queen song “Don’t Stop Me Now” in an exclusive cover version. It tells the story of a man in Strellson attire forging a path through a fantasy world with unstoppable self-assurance.

As a brand, Strellson too is forging a new path: for the first time, the company is opting for a purely digital media strategy, and employing an unusual campaign concept for the fashion sector – a music video.

“Strellson is venturing to turn the tables in terms of marketing strategy. Up to now, it was the photographer who was responsible for executing the campaigns; now the film director is c entre - stage. It's his job to communicate the central idea of the campaign. The photographer is relegated to the background, capturing only moments in time”, says Mehmet Arici, Marketing Director Strellson.




The concept was devised by the advertising agency Serviceplan Campaign X; direction is by the Berlin - based duo Wolf & Lamm, famous for their national and international music videos, along with numerous fashion and promotional films. The Berliners use original narrative mechanisms and a fresh, sexy look to create artistic films in tune with the zeitgeist. The clip stars Blake Schaefering. The American - born model has previously worked for labels like Tom Ford, Chanel, Dior Homme, Yves Saint Laurent and Mulberry.

The fashion industry is facing a new generation of men: men who follow their own impulses and dare to be different. Men whose lives are rooted in the digital world. The aim of the digital campaign is to connect with this target group via relevant and entertaining content.

The world-famous song “Don’t Stop Me Now” perfectly encapsulates the spirit of the brand. Released in 1978 on the Queen album “Jazz”, with words and music by Freddie Mercury, it is also a fitting tribute to the artist himself, who would have been 70 on 5 September. The cover was recorded exclusively for Strellson with a modern twist by London-born singer, songwriter and star producer MNEK, who has previously worked for artists such as Kylie Minogue, Rudimental and Beyoncé.

Salt Bride by Sigalit Landau

Salt Crystal Bride Gown III, 2014. Sigalit Landau & Marlborough Contemporary.
Sigalit Landau leaves dress in the Dead Sea for 2 months and it turns into glittering salt crystal masterpiece

For her project titled 'Salt Bride', Israeli artist Sigalit Landau decided to submerge a black gown in the Dead Sea. The gown spent 2 months in the salt-rich waters in 2014. The result is magical.

The project is an eight-part photo series inspired by S. Ansky’s 1916 play titled Dybbuk. The play is about a young Hasidic woman who becomes possessed by the spirit of her dead lover, and Landau’s salt-encrusted gown is a replica of the one worn in the dramatic production of the 1920s.
Landau checked on the black gown various times in order to capture the gradual process of salt crystalisation.
The work was on display at London’s Marlborough Contemporary.

Young Thug wears Alessandro Trincone on album cover

Young Thug released a new album and it is already a cult talk of the town because of the album cover for his album No, My Name Is JEFFERY. The cover features the Atlanta rapper posing severely in a skirt-like garment. The piece is part of Italian designer Alessandro Trincone's “Annodami” collection, the winner of FASHIONCLASH Festival 2016 talent Award.  Garfield Larmond shot the already iconic cover in which a world know repper wears a gender-neutral garment. 

Alessandro graduated with with honors from POLIMODA International Institute. His graduation collection Kings and Queens, was selected to be the best of POLIMODA’s graduation class of 2015. Following he took a scholarship at “Osaka Bunka Fashion College” in Japan. From then on, the Japanese culture has been a huge source of inspiration for his designs. This is shown in his new collection: 'Annodami', which talks about his own experience with oppression and self fulfillment.

Young Thug has been a rap pioneer for about as long as he’s been rapping.
This is not the first time
he questioned gender codes. He appeared in a gender-bending Calvin Klein ad for the FW 2016 collection, showing the shifting change in homophobic hip-hop scene. Contemporary rappers are setting trends with their progressive thoughts and style.
“In my world, of course, it don’t matter. You could be a gangster with a dress. Or you could be a gangster with baggy pants. I don’t feel like it’s no such thing as gender,” Young Thug says in a video for the campaign.

Young Thug is not the only pioneer when it comes to gender-bending flirtation with high-end fashion.
Think of A$AP Rocky, whose close association with the fashion world made him an iconic newcomer a few years ago. Or what about Kanye West who is a leader in bringing high fashion into hip-hop.

Anyhow, Alessandro Trincone's stunning collection got what it deserverd, a cult status.
