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.

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."

SENSATIONALLY FEISTY, DEEPLY INSIGHTFUL, AND WAY AHEAD...THE UNCOMPROMISING GEORGIA O'KEEFFE

220px-O'Keeffe-(hands)

I had a great surprise this morning to see these wonderful clips from a documentary on Georgia O'Keeffe. What a force and presence, truly inspirational. Watching this makes me want to go back to the South West...the kind of landscape and energy that one can only experience in dreams and nightmares. Enjoy.
