MUTATE AW13 / DIEGO ZÚÑIGA
[ M U T A T E . AW13 ]
The homonymous firm of the Mexican designer returns this Fall/Winter 2013 with MUTATE. The starting point is the beetle, an insect that throughout history has been an inspiration for industrial design, architecture and the military world. With eight all-black looks, MUTATE is characterized by oversize pieces, tailored quality and sporty touches. It surprises us with dynamic and original cuts, mesh details, and for the first time in the brand’s history there is a couple of functional accessories (cap and backpack) to create an outfit that reflects the concept perfectly. The collection? Wide-cut blazers with relaxed lapels, sweaters with wide sleeves, pants with big cargo-like pockets, and short wide pants. The textures reflect inspiration and are mixed with the designer’s characteristic black-over-black detail. The fortress, intellect, routine, and strength of the contemporary man is what emerges from this proposal from Zúñiga.

KOHLHAAS OR THE PORPORTIONALITY OF MEANS, DIRECTED BY ARON LEHMANN AND PRODUCED BY MIRIAM KLEIN - TRAILER
Here is the trailer for Aron Lehmann's KOHLHAAS OR THE PROPORTIONALITY OF MEANS, now out in cinemas in Germany. KOHLHASS, was produced by my good friend here in Berlin Miriam Klein, who I was introduced to though our mutual dear friend in Paris, Ottavia Palomba. The film has been playing many festival and doing quite well (find links below for more info) and is described is a very modern
interpretation of Kleist's "Michael Kohlhaas", a classic in German
"What happened here we shall record, though we must allow those who wish to question it the freedom to do so." -- Heinrich von Kleist
Deep in the Bavarian countryside Kleist's historical drama "Michael Kohlhaas" is being shot. But instead of shooting a huge epic with impressive costumes and extraordinary props, grown-up men in blue overalls and suits run through the woods and fight with imaginary weapons. What has happened?"
KOHLHASS is playing here in Berlin at http://bit.ly/HierImKino and here is a review on the film in English on twitchfilm.com, by Ben Umstead.
Today happens to be Miriam's birthday as well, so I am sending out a special digital HAPPY BIRTHDAY WISH TO YOU. Congratulations on the success of the film!

LA DANZA DE LA REALIDAD (DANCE OF REALITY) TRAILER - DIRECTED BY ALEJANDRO JODOROWSKY
Was happy to find the trailer for Jodorowsky's new film, LA DANZA DE LA REALIDAD (DANCE OF REALITY), which debuted at Cannes last May. My dear friend in Mexico City Alisarine Ducolomb did the production design on the film, which she has been telling me about for sometime. I am look forward to seeing LA DANZA DE LA REALIDAD, which is described as "a magic-realist memoir" of Jodorowsky's youth.
