MUTATE AW13 / DIEGO ZÚÑIGA

[ M U T A T E . AW13 ] 
www.diegozuniga.com

Twitback

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.

HAPPY 70TH BIRTHDAY ROBERT CRUMB - CRUMB TRAILER


2012-08-29-robert_crumb

In honor of R. Crumb's 70th birthday I have posted the trailer of 1994 documentry about Crumb directed by Terry Zwigoff. This documentry is a very intimate, irreverent, and often disturbing portrait of Crumb and his work as well as the an amazing cast of characters of friends, family and fans around him.

Screen shot 2013-08-30 at 3.17.26 PM

Enjoy.

His neo-surrealist/cartoon abstract paintings have earned him the respect of esteemed collectors worldwide while his wildly popular line of custom silk screened & hand painted tee-shirts are worn by a wide and varried range of all age hipsters willing to worship at the house of LaForge working it on the runway known as life.

Dazed x Protein: Trash Fashion Forum - by Silvia Bombardini

Dear Shaded Viewers and Diane,

 

Last night in the heart of East London, as the unfamiliar sunshine we're getting these days slowly began to wane, we were sipping passion fruit cider and waiting patiently by the doors of Protein gallery for the promised Dazed Trash Fashion Forum to begin. To celebrate Dazed & Confused July issue a conference was called, where new womenswear graduates spoke side by side with major fashion figures the likes of Hussein Chalayan and Central Saint Martins Professor Caroline Evans. The theme was, naturally, trash - discussed intimately in all its nostalgic, romantic, extraordinary value, its garish uniqueness and its maudlin and inspiring heritage. The Met's PUNK exhibition came up, of course, and we were taught to appreciate the creative potential of simply not being able to afford everything. The ever briefer lifecycle of fashion was questioned, and so were the issues of a disposable culture, how to retrain our brains against seasons and how the real problem might be that fast fashion, well just isn't horrible enough.

Here is Hussein Chalayan's personal insight on the theme, as he explains how trash relates to his own work through the years in many diverse, fascinating ways.

MODESIGN/FASHION AT IUAV 2013 (3) BY NUNZIA GAROFFOLO

Modesign/Fashion at Iuav 2013 ended with a series of smashing initiatives under the sign of fashion and its culture. The last day started with “Per una fotografia italiana di moda”, talk which was held at the Treviso TRA (Treviso, Ricerca, Arte) cultural association moderated by Saul Marcadent with a panel of experts which included Maria Luisa Frisa, Alan Chies, Andrea Batilla, Stefan Pollak, Anja Aronowsky-Cronenberg, Alessio Ascari and Sabrina Ciofi who talked about media, magazines and independence. The focus of the talk was  independence and the  freedom of experimentation and involving emerging creatives.

That is true and reasonable issue, though the independence as value in action should concern the whole circuit which gives rise to a magazine, even it it’s hard to commercialize an independent magazine without using the mainstream circuit of distribution. It’s hard, but it’s not impossible (otherwise the independence and values such as integrity and vision are just a charming artifice, healing a dynamic of the mainstream press which, considering its role and position, frequently inserted in big group of media companies, should act differently, in the name of big numbers. Independence would be the only means for justifying the existence of a different product, resulting from its contents and it would be a too weak basis).

Anja Aronowsky-Cronenberg, the editor-in-chief of magazine Vestoj, talked about her work experience, focusing on the Vestoj’s Manifesto which forbids any advertising (the most sensitive topic which is the condition of health and long life of a magazine) and represents the compromise which a magazine has to do, balancing and addressing the information given to the needs coming from the brands that paid for it), something I appreciated very much.  (After all the times are ready to give rise to a new marketing strategy which is ethical inside out the realm of media). The talk ended with the visit at the exhibition “Flou, six photographers for six independent magazines”, curated by Saul Marcadent which included a beautiful portrait pic of Suzy Menkes.

Later in the early afternoon I visited another exhibition, “Linen Yarn. Il lino nel lavoro degli student di due scuole di moda: Central Saint Martins di Londra e Università Iuav di Venezia”, curated by Cristiano Seganfreddo. The event has shared with another event, the launch of the fashion tradeshow event Origin, Passion and belief, created by Fiera di Vicenza and Not Just a Label and has been a successful chance to appreciate the laudable work made by Iuav students as Sophia Crema and Alma Ricci as well as to see Stefan Siegel of NJAL.

The day ended with two fashion shows, the Iuav Graduation show, curated by Kinkaleri which took place at the Treviso Edmondo De Amicis elementary school and the MA Graduation show, a fashion performance curated by Kinkaleri which was held at the Treviso Chamber of Commerce. The fashion displayed  the excellence of the emerging creativity from Iuav in the realm of menswear, presenting outfits that were ready to be commercialized and have nothing less than the products by emerging brands I saw recently during the latest fashion tradeshow events. That is a relevant result got by a public institution which trains young creatives I celebrate as to study for becoming a fashion designer is a chance everyone should have beyond its own balance restrictions.

NATASHA GORNIK GIVES GOOD KINK

Goodsoup_invite_email_0-fixed
GORNIK 2
GORNIK 3
GORNIK 4

Please go check out Natasha Gornik at the first exhibition of her photography in Paris. Natasha is a Brooklyn based artist who describes herself as a professional Experiencer. For the past decade, she has been photographing the kink culture and capturing the dynamism of the individual through portraiture. Her photography is a visual journal of sexuality, her travels and the individuals that she meets along the way. Still life plays an important role in her work especially in contextualizing the more visceral images. Her goal is not to document but  capture the essence and experience of the scene through the camera. She also participates, making her images part of a personal narrative. Natasha's blog is a diaristic mix of my words and photography which are about food, fuck and a couple things in between. She has been included in numerous group exhibitions throughout the United States and her photography exists as limited edition fine art prints.
