Under my Plastic Christmas Palm Tree.

Saturday, December 24, 2011

If you haven't done your christmas shopping by now, there is still hope for you in our books.
Escape route 1 - Get a magazine subscription, and just leave it to them to deliver the goods.

// monocle subscription for a year $125

// Hussein Chalayan $325 / The Room Magazine one year subscription €110


Escape route 2 - Run down to the shops NOW! Don't pass 'GO' and don't 'COLLECT $200'! But to be honest, all the desperate last-minute consumerism down at your local mall probably couldn't buy you lurve like we've got for you here! So listen up.

Escape route 3 - OK go ahead and order them something really awesome, and...for the moment completely digital, intangible and pretty much half way around the world with almost zero hope of the thing ever teleporting to your part of the world before Christmas Morning. Then hope like hell that you've been a good enough girl/boy all year that Santa will do all the teleporting for you and that gift that you chose will be sitting under that plastic christmas palm tree come sunrise! Well, for those of you who aren't so lucky, or have spent a few too many nights partying and getting up to no good, then finding yourself in Santa's BAD books, or those of you, you know who you are, you poor in faith; well as long as you get them something truly awesome, when I say awesome I mean, as long as it's the fan-bloody-tastic kinda awesome, like, beyond anything I've ever imagined in my wildest dreams kinda awesome; being a couple days in the coming shouldn't be too much of an issue, we assure you. Try one of these following items for effect:

A/W 2011: Kaikoku

Monday, May 16, 2011

As we are getting into our own winter, we will be looking at some of the A/W 2011 collections from the recent fashion weeks. We will be sharing our favourite collections here. At the same time inspiring any of your wardrobes in the Southern Hemisphere. We hope the rest of you get inspired too... sorry you'll have to wait till your winter comes round!

It's no secret, our admiration for Hussein Chalayan's work, we've even ranted about it before. Furthermore, collection after collection we're reminded of how fearless and unafraid he is to ask hard questions, dig deep into sensitive topics. And he's shown us what beautiful, forward, uncompromising, and wearable fashion can be the fruit of those questions.


His attention of late, appropriately, happens to be on Japan, sensitively delving into aspects of Japanese social history and culture. This season he focuses on 'Kaikoku' (translation:open country, open society, 開国; opening of a country to the world). The emergance and exposure of Japan as a culture, post world-war.

inventing fashion : Hussein Chalayan

It’s so often eye opening to see Chalayan’s shows - it’s setting off triggers in the rest of us. We think of the future and fashion -what might that mean? The reinvention of the link between fashion and technology is very tasty to me. If we take a moment from what is “now” and “here”, think of what could be in the future that could revolutionize the way we live.

Hussein chalayan is really not afraid to ask those open ended questions. He’s more of a designer and artist that’s really using fashion as a means of answering or facing, these questions for himself.

In the future, if clothing was as much as lasers - the manipulation of light to create the illusion of a fabric, illusion of a veil, -then -in that way wouldn't it be an illusion of being clothed? Isn’t that clothing for the sole purpose of creating an outwards perception? What about today? Are clothing ourselves too, only for the outwards perception?

It's moments like these that we are reminded of how fickle fashion can be. But also of the other aspects, - apart from the desire of an image, - the other parts of fashion that we love- that probably shouldn’t be healthily seperated.
