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.

ROGGYKEI presents SS14 COLLECTION "IRON DUALISM" TEXT BY YASUYUKI ASANO

 

Dear Diane and Shaded Viewers,

 

 

ROGGYKEI is a Japanese fashion label based in Osaka, founded by Hitoshi Korogi and Keiko Miyakoshi in 2006.

 

With the concept "Clothes as accessories, accessories as clothes", the designer duo presents near-futuristic coutures created by bold colours, metallic materials and sculptural shapes, blurring the boundaries of existing product categories.

Following to their showroom in Paris during fashion week, they opened their first exhibition in London last evening at Red Gallery Kanteen.

For SS14 they collaborated with London based Japanese animation artist Noriko Okaku, and personified the theme "Iron Dualism" by the strange world of "Tetsuo and Tetsuko" (iron boy and iron girl in Japanese).

Tetsuo is a kind gentleman who loves fishing, Japanese chess and curling, while Tetsuko is a brave tomboyish girl who loves cooking and tennis. His dream is to be a human and her dream is to have a baby, and their favourite number is 26, obviously.

MARTINA SPETLOVA SS/14 PARIS SHOWROOM SEPT 2ND - OCT 27TH AT THE EVE MEYER GALLERY

SS14 invitation paris

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."
