Tabernacle Twins – AW11>
It is not my intention to promote my friends through this site, but when I happen to have so talented friends, I just can’t help my self. Once again I have to show you the latest collection from Tabernacle Twins. Not to long ago I wrote about the Spring/Summer 11 collection, but now it is already time for autumn and winter 2011. Not only do I love their cloths, but I am really impressed with the way they use visual effects and photography to make their cloths stand out like a dramatic painting or visual stories. Press read more to see my favourites among the AW11 collection.
Lucy McRea for Robyn>
Its not only the music I love about the Swedish artist Robyn, but the cover art of her 3 CDs this year, is also avant-garde and trendsetting. I’ve been dying to find out who the artist behind the three Body Talks albums is, and now I’ve finally got the answer! Australian artist Lucy McRae is a great mind whom I’ve written about before. I am always amazed by her take on the human body, using textures and shapes that are strange, bold and so, so beautiful. She had the art directed on the three album covers as well as the video for Indestructible, and here you can see more pictures and behind the scenes material from «the making of»!
The highlight of last thursdays Pecha Kucha in Oslo was without a doubt Bjørn-Kowalski Hansen. He is the man behind the brand Håkki – a clothing store and art project with its main focus is the survival of a community identity in a small town of Ljungaverk in northern Sweden that has suffered some negative consequences of an increasingly globalized world. Håkki became really famous for their print t-shirts a couple of years ago, as the motifs on the shirts illustrate fun/weird statements from the local identity and Norwegian/Swedish politics. Under follows some retail-pictures as well as some prints! Here you see the packaging of their latest product – the Håkki Wax! Under follows some retail-pictures as well as some prints… Read more…
I don’t write about fashion that often, but when I saw this work by a friend I went to school with in Denmark a couple of years ago, I just had to show it to you! Tabernacle Twins is a new danish womenswear brand and consist of Johanne Kappel and Vibe Lundemark. The two fashion designers have a bold, edgy and colorful style, and their cloths are playful and unique with abstract prints and volumes.

The future is now>
In 1965 Richard Avedon anticipated a new era of Space Age in fashion. One Management has taken a trip back to that time and discovered the art of making mock-ups of magazine covers. A cover mock-up in 1965 would reveal layer upon layer of creative decisions and aesthetic maneuvers, and would hold its own as work of art. I love these cover-mock ups they have made and how they play beautifully with colors, shapes and patterns. More pictures after the jump!
