Wicked to the bone







 

It has been a while since I have shared any illustrator with you guys, but now it’s time to introduce you to one of my fav ones, Kez Glozier, talented and sexy guy based in London. His work is pure rock n’roll and a lot of his drawings could be an awesome inspiration for some rad tats. Check out more from him on his (totally insane) blog:

Everything is an Illusion












 

Currently obsessing over these shots by Rad Hourani. Read below the introduction to Rad “What’s contemporary” project written by Saulo Madrid.

 

FOR RAD, WHAT’S CONTEMPORARY IS THE JUXTAPOSITION OF SOMBER AND LUMINOUS, BLACK & WHITE, CLASSICAL & MODERN, IT IS THE DECONSTRUCTION AND RECONSTRUCTION OF VISUAL ELEMENTS GATHERED ALONG DIFFERENT SPACES AND EXPERIENCES. ANALOGOUSLY, CONTEMPORARY CULTURE IS PERPETUALLY OBSESSED WITH WHAT IS NOW, OR WHAT IS TO COME NEXT, BUT IT IS RARELY CONCERNED WITH HOW ITS VISUAL PRODUCTION WILL TRANSCEND TIME. MOST FASHION AND ART PUBLICATIONS ARE THE DIRECT RESULT OF THE MARKET ECONOMY, WHICH TENDS TO SHOW THE EPHEMERAL NATURE OF OBJECTS THAT REFLECT OUR HUMAN FINALITY. RAD’S WAY OF EXISTING IN THE CURRENT PARADIGM IS A DICHOTOMY: HE CREATES GARMENTS, VIDEOS, GRAPHIC ART, AND PHOTOGRAPHY THAT APPEAL TO A VERY CONTEMPORARY SENSIBILITY, YET IT APPEARS TO BELONG TO A DIFFERENT TIME. THIS TIMELESSNESS APPEARS EFFORTLESS, AND IS NOT SEASON SPECIFIC.

WHEN LOOKING AT HIS WORK AND THE PEOPLE HE HAS BEEN COMPARED TO AT HIS YOUNG AGE, ONE COULD SAY HE IS PART OF THE AVANT-GARDE. YET, THE AVANT-GARDE IS BOUND TO BECOME OBSOLETE IN ALL ART AND FASHION MOVEMENTS. INSTEAD, HE HAS CREATED HIS PERSONAL COSMOLOGY IN WHICH THERE IS NO SEASON, NO GENDER, NO RACE, AND IS DRIVEN BY INTUITION. HE MAY APPEAR AT FIRST GLANCE AS A CONCEPTUAL ARTIST AND DESIGNER, OR AN IDEALISTIC MODERNIST, BUT MORE PROFOUNDLY HE IS A ROMANTIC UNDERNEATH THE FUNCTIONALITY AND CONCEPTUAL PIECES HE CREATES. THE IDEAS OF PURITY AND THE SUBLIME ARE MORE OFTEN CONNECTED TO HEGEL’S AND KANT’S LATE ROMANTICISM, WHICH ARE IN TURN RARELY ASSOCIATED WITH THE AVANT-GARDE, AND IT IS PRECISELY WHAT MAKES RAD CONTEMPORARY.

“ CONTEMPORARY IS THE OBSESSION OF A MOMENT THAT COULD LAST FOREVER, AN ILLUSION OF WHAT IS TIMELESS NOW” RAD HOURANI

Ilaria Nistri | roque




I am always very proud and excited when I can present you new talents from Italy (which happens to be my country) and no dubt Ilaria Nistri and her brand project Roque – state of mind, a mark of urgency - is one of them.

 

Roque is an incursion into her sophisticated world and, above all, an explicit reference to the street. The freedom to transform, mix, construe. It is research and experimentation of the her line, rendered in the immediacy of a moment through a collection of articles in jersey and silk, lightweight and interchangeable. . High-tech fabric know-how, the leitmotiv of proportions, power of prints and clever use of asymmetry are reworked in a dynamic key, featuring treatments, dyes and resin-coatings with all the flavour of a story and unusual combinations.

 

But I am not in love only with her designs but also with “Amygdule”, a series of visions in photos and videos narrating the imagery that has fuelled the Ilaria Nistri S|S 12 collection. Enjoy!
