MUTATE AW13 / DIEGO ZÚÑIGA
[ M U T A T E . AW13 ]
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.

It was my first time at XXX and the space was great, featuring works of various designers and artist as a small cafe in the back.

Issey Miyake: Pleats Please Taschen Book Launch Text by Eugene Rabkin
Dear Shaded Viewers,
Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Eugene Rabkin and I am the editor of StyleZeitgeist magazine and a new and honored addition to the ASVOF team. I will be reporting on the New York fashion and culture scene and beyond. Below is my first dispatch.
Last night I attended the launch of the Pleats Please book, published by Taschen, in Issey Miyake's Tribeca shop. It was an intimate experience in a stunning, Frank Gehry-designed space. The 512 page volume is itself intimate - for the first time Miyake allowed a photo crew into a Pleats Please production facility, a closely guarded secret. Beyond that, the volume is a comprehensive overview of one of the most innovative projects in fashion history.

Persuade, Bilbao - by Silvia Bombardini
verb (used with object), per·suad·ed, per·suad·ing, per·suades
1. to induce, urge, or prevail upon successfully
2. to cause to believe; convince
Dear Shaded Viewers and Diane,
If you were looking for Solomon's flying carpet, made of green silk with a golden weft, sixty miles long and sixty miles wide, or dresses weaved in the shades of weather to please and entice Princess Donkeyskin, I would suggest you to visit Persuade, in downtown Bilbao. Rosa Orrantia's shop is dusted with hovering wonder from all the stolen breaths of those who happened to stop by, and each piece in her always infallible collection has its own magic tale to tell. Her persuasive treasures in porcelain and linen, hair and gold and shell come from all around the world, blending a purely Spanish warmth with Belgian subtlety and Japanese grace with British savoir-faire. If something is limited and rare and exceptional enough for people to start doubting it ever existed -like Margiela jewellery collaboration with Damiani, for instance-, you might be very likely to find it there.
Andrew Trotter from Openhouse, who I finally had the pleasure to meet, by chance at Persuade
