MARTINA SPETLOVA SS/14 PARIS SHOWROOM SEPT 2ND - OCT 27TH AT THE EVE MEYER GALLERY
My good friend, London based Czech designer Martina Spetlova will be showing her latest SS/14 collection in Paris at The Eve Meyer Gallery from 27Th September - 2nd October. You might remember Martina from several post I have done in the past two years on her, here, here, and here as well as a Italian Vogue's recent Talent Issue here. Also see the great write up in The Telegraph which calls Martina "the London queen of texture". And for our Russian readers this piece from Wonder Zine. Below find images from Martina's latest collection as well as her SS/14 film directed by Marnie Hollande.
Martina wrote me this about her new film:
"Like the collection itself, the two films (they were two originally for interactive presentation but now they are merged into one) focus on the new textures and patterns I've created. I made headpieces/hoods that create striking and simple imagery for the film. Inspired by vintage Pucci ski mask and more recently Pussy Riot, my hoods reference agitators and provocateurs."

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!
