Designers Carol Lim and Humberto Leon are known for their creative and innovative presentations.
For their spring summer 2017 collection show they chose the Cité de l'Architecture et du Patrimoine, Paris's architecture museum that houses casts of French architecture and monumental sculptures both new and old. They added a human element to the set, which resulted in the addition of real-life statues posing among—and sometimes even incorporated into—the works of art and architecture.


Chalayan spring/summer 2017

Hussein Chalayan Teams Up With Intel for S/S 2017 collection

Designer Hussein Chalayan partnered with Intel to bring wearable technology to his spring/summer 2017 fashion week show. Five models walked the runway alongside visual projections that showed their stress levels on the walls. All of it was made possible by vital information sent through the wearable tech they sported on the runway.

 “Only with technology can you create new things in fashion. Everything else has been done,” he has previously said.

Intel has previously partnered with Opening Ceremony and Oakley. Chalayan is no stranger to experimenting with how his clothing can engage with technology. In the past, he's created looks that changed shape with the use microchips and animatronics, made dresses embedded with LEDs, and once created a coffee table that turned into a skirt.

According to Intel, the goal of the project, was to "illustrate the potential of future integrations of fashion and technology by bringing innovative concepts and aspirations to life."

Spring/Summer 2017

Blending traditional aesthetic from the south of Spain he presented a romantic menswear collection with a successful gender bending approach.

"Graduated in Menswear Design and Technology at London College of Fashion, I envision an idea of fashion that reflects the taste and skill that I have developed through the years in London and combines it with the traditional aesthetic that I was brought up with in the South of Spain."


Issey Miyake x United Nude

Issey Miyake and United Nude have joined forces to create a collection of shoes.
Presented during Paris Fashion Week spring/summer 2017, the project elaborates on Issey Miyake’s concept of ‘ten sen men’ (point, line and surface), and continues United Nude’s approach to shoe design as architecture, using cutting-edge materials and techniques.
Both ‘rock’ and ‘wrap’ shoes put the wearer at the forefront of the design process, creating footwear that is practical and playful. The ‘rock’ shoes are based on the concept of ‘structure’ and are characterized by their dynamic, geometric heels that seem to be hewn from stone. Fusing functionality — based on structural dynamics — and a colorful playfulness, the collection is available in six hues — white, black, pink, beige, yellow and green.

The ‘wrap’ shoes have been designed to envelop the foot in a single sheet of leather. the model has an elastic band that improves the fit, making it a simple and easy style to wear. ‘wrap’ is available in three colors — white, black, and silver — and in both flats and low heels.

The Measure of our Traveling Feet

Paulien Oltheten
The Measure of our Traveling Feet
at Marres, Centre for Contemporary Culture in Maastricht

Large numbers of migrants are risking their lives in order to enter Europe. We see images of small boats afloat at sea, men in helmets and a deluge of drowned refugees. We hear about illegal settlements, desperate families and ruthless smugglers. The journeys of these refugees stand in stark contrast to the free movement of inhabitants of the European Union. While the world seems within arm’s reach to Europeans because of the euro, the open borders and the cheap airline tickets, the continent is becoming a closed fortress from the outside. Discussions revolve around migration, social inequality and the moving of feet that has always been part and parcel of these issues.

Société Réaliste
The exhibition The Measure of our Traveling Feet focuses on the social and cultural significance of migration. What does the world beyond the border have to offer? In which ways does travel change the past and alter identities? Paulien Oltheten has documented her journey on current and historical routes from eastern and central Europe to the west. Shilpa Gupta immerses us in the confusion that is typical of arrival in an unfamiliar environment, while Mounira Al Solh intimately captures migrants' stories.
Mircea Cantor
The exhibition title derives from a poem by the Irish poet W.B. Yeats (1865-1939) about the changing rhythm of life in modern England during the Industrial Revolution. How does the flow of refugees accelerate today's pace, and how does it relate to the routes we ourselves traverse?
Participating artists: Francis Alÿs, Anca Benera & Arnold Estefan, Tudor Bratu, Mircea Cantor, Juliana Cerqueira Leite, Shilpa Gupta, Roza El-Hassan, Paulien Oltheten, Wouter Osterholt & Ingrid Hapke, Société Réaliste, Mounira Al Solh, Zsófia Szemző and World Service Authority®.

The exhibition is curated by Laura Mudde and Claire van Els.

Hood By Air S/S 2017

Shayne Oliver presented the Spring/Summer 2017 collection for Hood By Air during New York Fashion Week.


Camiel Fortgens - Collection 3

Camiel Fortgens presented his new collection in Amsterdam in a living room setting during the SHOW ROOM ROOM SHOW event. 
He presented a menswear collection, in all off-white, based on archetypal garments and elements of garments from different cultures, times and contexts. The collection was shown on man and woman. “Why not, anymore?”. The models walked on home-recorded hip-hop and rap songs through the room. The designer himself changed their outfits at the end of the catwalk in front of the public. There is nothing hidden, all is shown. Nothing is made glamorous, all is real. From the quick hand written invite, the show’s setting, the home recorded rap, to the rough fraying ‘sketched’ garments.

The collection is based on a series of copies of archetypal iconic garments: ‘the Blanks’. These ‘Blanks’ are all executed and united in neutral off-white, bringing together times, places and cultures, from street culture to Victorian style garments. Garments like a hoodie, a tracksuit, grandma pants and a goalkeepers-shirt are copied in white. The whole collection is made with 100% unbleached heavy cotton twill and finished with heavy-duty zips and natural bone buttons. The ‘Blanks’ are the base of the collection. Fortgens works on and around the ‘Blanks’ as he researches garments and it’s reason and norm in fashion and culture. He’s puzzling with element of clothing. He combines a tracksuit jacket with a fraying Victorian collar, a piece of white cloth is roughly sown on to a jacket to make it a coat and a grandma flowers print is roughly painted on to an apron and dinner jacket.

The garments don’t pretend or hide nor try to fit a norm or trend in fashion. The collection shows garments and research on garments and norms in fashion.

Jamaican porn stars models for Hood by Air

Shayne Olivier’s latest project is a cooperation with South African photographer Pieter Hugo, capturing the latest Hood by Air collection on Jamaican porn stars. The arresting images are also the subject of a new book.
Pieter Hugo got in the picture with his magnificent images of African communities, ranging from Nigerian gangs walking their pet hyenas to Liberian scouts, via judges in Botswana. For Hood by Air, he captured Jamaican porn stars from Kingston’s Gully Queen gay community, a group of men who ostracized by the patriarchal society in the country, who now live together near a storm drain in the city’s slum district. Sex workers, porn actor and transsexuals all wear Hood by Air in PH & HBA, a poignant and transgressive book available now.
