The Invisible Shoe

December 9th, 2009

The Invisible Shoe is one of the 5 different shoe concepts by the Brazilian footwear designer Andreia Chaves. It would fit perfectly with the polygon fashion of Irina Shaposhnikova. You can see the 4 other concepts at Yatzer.

Hermès × Tokujin Yoshioka

December 8th, 2009

Tokujin Yoshioka was asked by Maison Hermès Japan to design a window display, featuring its famous scarfs. It’s actually a new version of a display he did for the brand back in 2004. But it is still amazing in its simplicity. Make sure that you watch the video.

BLESS N°39 Heart Ringers Sunglasses

October 28th, 2009

Here are the new sunglasses by BLESS from their N°39 Heart Ringers collection. This time they’ve used photoprints on the glasses and perforated them. These are still very weird, but I think they’re better than those Duo Fringe Glasses they had last summer.

Design Academy Eindhoven Bachelors

October 22nd, 2009

I had just a quick look at the 2009 Bachelors of the Design Academy Eindhoven. These 3 projects cought my attention:

Minimal Dress by Digna Kosse

‘May I ask how many costumes she wears out each year?’ ‘My dear sir, the clothing of a lady does not wear out through her wearing of it, but through her being seen in it.’ Richard Steele Our clothes are more quickly discarded as a result of changing fashion than because of wear and tear. The consumption of material by the clothing industry is gigantic as a result. Digna Kosse designed fifteen dresses that are far from voracious consumers of material. She demonstrates that you can minimize these pieces of clothing to a few threads at the most. Minimal Dresses are wispier than wispy, yet they remain feminine dresses with which to make a fashion statement.

Dimensions by Steie vanVugt

Steie van Vugt made a mirror installation that played with the dimensions of a space: the mirrors pull the space apart like a kaleidoscope and display conflicting images. The installation emphasizes and blurs angles and holes, creating both calmness and complexity. Dimensies gives an empty concrete space a unique finishing touch and lets people reflect on how they experience a space.

Wastesthetics by Laura Lynn Jansen

Is it possible to elevate waste into a thing of beauty? Laura Lynn Jansen put plastic packaging items into a transparent bag, created a vacuum and discovered that it took on aesthetically attractive forms. This inspired her to make a garbage bag from a stretch material reminiscent of mother of pearl. ‘By being able to see the shapes inside, it becomes a kind of work of art that changes its form every day.’ The bag can be hung in a special frame. Jansen would like to have a weekly plastic collection day introduced on which everyone would hang the bag on their door. ‘A street with a shiny white shape on every house front. On the basis of the bag, you can say something about someone’s identity – something from the inside is shown on the outside.’ She hopes that Wastesthetics will make people aware of how much garbage they produce.

October 5th, 2009

The last time I’ve showed you something form the Dutch fashion designers Viktor & Rolf, they added some 3D elements to their designs. But it seems like they’ve decided to work the other way around for the next season and to cut away some parts.
