I came across Rein Vollenga new series of wearable sculptures through Diane Pernet blog, which is always an amazing source of inspiration, and I was immediately overwhelmed by this fresh new release. The new and completely white futuristic collection is quite distant and almost antithetical from the last season’s triumph of darkness yet still keeping its very distinct signature style.
In the wake of his previous work, Rein continues to experiment with combining artificial high gloss surfaces with traditionally hand-sculpted material, creating ready to wear handmade sculptures that preserve individuality in every single piece. The result is a rad collection of totally avant-garde art pieces with a sleek feel and twisted aesthetic, just as we like it!
Rein Vollenga (NL) lives and works in Berlin. The artist is known for his highly visceral sculptures that show a fascination for the human body merged with a synthetic aesthetic. These opposites are reflected in his technique of combining found generic objects with traditionally hand-sculpted material, the craftsmanship being in stark contradiction to the sleek high gloss surfaces of the finished work. Vollenga’s sculptures have been exhibited in both museums and galleries. He has had exhibitions in Milan, Vienna, Oslo, The Hague, Berlin and Tokyo, among others. Also, Vollenga’s so-called wearable sculptures – objects that can occasionally be worn as sculptural adornments – have been commissioned by several fashion labels, artists and performers. His collaborations include Mugler, Lady Gaga, New Power Studio, Cassette Playa, 2NE1, Hanayo and M-Flo Verbal. The wearable sculptures have been shown during the London and Paris Fashion Weeks and featured in Dazed, i-D, V Man, V, NY Times, Vogue Italia, Sang Bleu, Showstudio and Style.com.

Isn’t this book beautiful? A pure object of desire?
Being a designer, my fascination for Lanvin’s book starts from its design and the way it is made. With a handmade cover, silk grosgrain cloth binding, hand gilded edging with engraved typography and delivered in a handmade cardboard box, this book is an object of couture itself.
These images from photographer Matthieu Belin belong to Qui Hao FW11 collection. When they appeared online last year I was charmed by the black outfits of the lookbook (see all the shots here) but today I am more and more drawn into these white ones. After years of total black, now I feel the unexpected need of collecting white objects and images and I would also start wearing white if my pale complexion allowed it. Also, I am thinking to invert my blog background and align it to my tumblr. So don’t be confuse if one of the next days landing over here you’ll step into the white.
How fierce and sexy are these shots by photographer Peter Coulson for Urbandon jewelry? The jewlery itself, made from recycled junk and scarp materials, is quite rad too. Check these awesome cuffs below and the rest of the collection here.
