A few weeks ago, I discovered Knyttan, a knit-on-demand start-up in London. They offer sweaters, scarves and blanket scarves in a whole range of colors, made from Merino wool. But the cool thing about it, is that you can design them yourself starting from a many different patterns. Some of the them were designed by Nicolas Sassoon, studio Moniker and Studio Moross.
It’s no surprise that I had to design one myself, so here’s my scarf. I love it! When I ever make to London, I’ll definitely get a sweater too.


This was the design that I sent to the “factory”.


The scarf is really comfy, the label adds a nice touch to it.


Here you can see the design versus the knitted result. Somehow it got mirrored during production, I guess you wouldn’t want that when you’re designing a sweater.

Voltage is the title of Iris van Herpen‘s latest couture collection. 2 outfits are actually 3D printed flexible outfits. The first one is a cape and skirt, which is a collaboration with Neri Oxman from MIT’s Media Lab. The second one is a black dress, a collaboration with the architect Julia Koerner. Both use a different 3D printing technique to achieve these result. The rest of the collection is also worth a look, it’s not like anything else out there.

Here’re 3 pieces from Iris van Herpen‘s Capriole collection. I guess they’re more wearable sculptures than fashion.

Poses is a new performance by Yolanda Domínguez. It’s a direct criticism of the absurd and artificial world of glamour and of fashion that magazines present. She asked a group of real women to transfer fashion poses to daily scenes: the queue of a museum, the supermarket or the bus stop, sparking off the reaction of the spectators.

Maison Martin Margiela Artisanal FW 2011/2012

July 11th, 2011

The biannual Maison Martin Margiela Artisanal collection is one of the few fashion things I’m always looking forward too. It’s always entertaining. So here are my 2 picks of the FW 2011/2012 collection.

A shearling lined parka assembled of 4 backpacks.

If you’re a runner, then you might recognize the pattern on this shirt … it’s the design of the X-Socks Run Speed One. And make sure to have a closer look at the “shoes” in this collection.

Natural Beauty

Natural Beauty is a new short film by Lernert & Sander. They applied 365 layers of makeup in one day on Hannelore Knuts to see how much is needed to go from a natural look to an outrageous one. The whole process took 9 nine hours, during which Hannelore couldn’t move and only eat and drink through a straw. The result is … well just watch the film below.
