PITOUR by Maria Oberfrank at MQ Vienna Fashion Week 2013. By Glenn Belverio
Designer Maria Oberfrank describes her brand PITOUR as being "perfectly positioned between soberness and exuberance"--and this collection shown last month in Vienna, full of Apollonian graphic details and Dionysian drapey, sensual silhouettes, was exactly that.
For this collection, Oberfrank wanted to capture the atmosphere of summer: sun-drenched landscapes with sparkling colors and flowers. "The colour scale glows on dresses in a very different mentality," she tells me. "Colored ribbons divide the body into diagonal fractals, and arrange them symmetrically. Cut-outs provide current insights and perspectives."

MORE by Rankin
Dear Shaded Viewers,
This month the British photographer Rankin will put together his finest work as a retrospective in a book publiished by teNeues. The book contains 300 color and duotone photographs. No doubt you know that Rankin is known for his portraits of celebrities of our generation. The book documents twenty years of his work and is organized by themes, including nudes, portraits, beauty, fashion and myths. Myths is a collaboration with artist Damien Hirst showing a contemporary interpretation of ancient mythical monsters.
"I am aware that my work is often a little bit uncomfortable, a bit strange, a bit challenging. I consider many of my pictures of the more famous people almost as 'anti-celebrity' get them off the pedestal, get them face-to-face, see the real person inside. ...If you look at that part of my work, it's levelling." said Rankin-
The book will be available in hardcover this month for € 98 $ 125 £ 70 ISBN 978-3-8327-9708-9. In addition there is a limited edition of 100 copies, clamshell box, title hand-written on the jacket by Rankin, Portfolio with a signed and numbered photo print. You can pre-order before December 31st for 1,750 EUR or after for 2,000 EUR.
