POPARCHIVES DIARIES BY DUSTIN PITTMAN - CLAYTON PATTERSON - THE GOD OF THE LES

FROM THE PHOTOGRAPHIC DIARIES OF PHOTOGRAPHER    Dustin Pittman

CLAYTON PATTERSON "THE $16 BURGER SHOW" WITH ELSA RENSAA & THE Art Collective BAND - DAMEHT

Longtime Lower East Side archivist, artist, photographer, Clayton Patterson has announced that he is leaving New York for a small village in the Austrian alps.“The $16 Burger show,” a pop-up exhibit featuring Patterson’s work, along with his life partner Elsa Rensaa’s original artwork, was held in a gallery space formerly known as "PopBurger" in the Meatpacking District.  It has been christened “Galerie ABP,” short for Au Bon Punk. Patterson, calls the neighborhood “the Dead Meat District.” Dameht, a band which is part of an art collective in NYC, helped stage the exhibit, along with Kate Litvinov.

I believe in Clayton and everything that he represents. I, to, have witnessed the distruction of the LES and other Historic Manhattan Neighborhoods only to be priced out with Corporate Drug Stores, Banks, Expensive Coffee Shops, Cellphone Popup Stores and other Mall Related storefront trash.  Mars Bar=GONE   CBGB'S=GONE   Max Fish=GONE   Brownies=GONE. 

The show was a celebration of young and old mingling together creating equal good vibes and loving spirits. Clayton Patterson is the GOD OF THE LES.

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.
