I PAGLIACCI

Chanced upon this amazing fashion editorial on Schön! Magazine N°27. It features an array of junky styling and a mixture of textures with a little reference of clowns/ circus/ harlequins. Something very up to my taste level and aesthetics. Schon Magazine N°27 Photographer: Livia Alcalde Stylist: Pablo Patanè Makeup: Valeria Orlando Hair: Riccardo Lupini Also […]

DISTRICT 12, KATNISS ABERDEEN.

Ok totally random but today’s post definitely have some sort of connection with the Hunger Games. Specifically District 12 where our girl on fire is from. Enough of rubbish talk, we look at Polish design studio bro.Kat who made one of a kind jewellery from coal. bro.Kat is a reference to “black gold” as coal […]

PETIT H

“Throw nothing away, we will always find a use for it!” I don’t know how I could have missed this (video was last posted a year ago on Hermès  youtube channel) but can we just celebrate how lovely this initiative by Hermès is?! Hermès is known for its quality goods made to perfection and its inevitable that […]

FROZEN

This is not a post about the Disney animated cartoon that got all the girls ranged from 4 to 20 raving about Elsa and singing to each other about building snowmen. Someone please tell me what is this sorcery. As we wait for that answer that might not even come to us, we take a […]

CANDY TRIBES

To commemorate this very sweet and kinda scary feast, I present to you Damien Poulain‘s “Masks and Sweets”. A collaboration with Dutch candy company Jamin, Damien Poulain […]

There is around 1.8 million Christmas trees in the […]

SOUND MEETS TYPOGRAPHY

Typography could be seen as one of the earliest forms of human existence. Using characters and words to convey our messages and objectives. As time passes by, many typographers and designers have had express their point of views on this limitless yet controlled art form. Moving on towards the digital era, typography is no longer […]

LET IT SNOW, LET IT SNOW, LET IT SNOW.

I’ve just realised that lack of Christmas-y posts on recyclofashion, despite the upcoming festivities. So here’s a little something for you guys. Created by filmmaker Vyacheslav Ivanov this microscopic short shows the intimate details of fragile snowflakes as they form in their miraculous hexagonal forms. Beautiful isn’t it? But little is known about how the video is […]

THE PAPER ART OF DANIEL GORDON

I was blown away by Daniel Gordon‘s paper art when I first got contact with it. It was like a hurricane of visual spectacles that swept across my face and I can’t help but start saving images of his art for my own research references. So much so that I think he needs some attention […]

POP ART MEETS VICE

Cigarettes are rarely ever associated with beauty. Certainly in the past they were glamourized, but happily and people are beginning to see quite clearly their highly detrimental effect. Or you’re in Singapore, where gore imagery (*cue unborn dead fetus, mouth full of rotting teeth etc) are used on cigarettes boxes to deter smokers from the […]

ANDREAS EKLOF

This work explores how action fashion can be used as a method to develop alternative expressions in outdoor wear. The tape techniques are my way of working with action fashion to achieve a more immediate means of creating outdoor garments. The outcome of the collection shows possibilities of developing alternative working methods within outdoor wear […]

THE SILVER SURFER

Here’s a refreshing take on surfer / surfing photos. Think no more about the sandy beaches or epic warm waters, instead be a penguin. Literally. Chris Burkard is a photographer based in Central Coast, California. He captures lifestyle and action sports, and some of his most compelling works are these pictures of people surfing among the […]

SLOW LIFE

Time lapse cinematography reveals a whole different world full of hypnotic motion and my idea was to make coral reef life more spectacular and thus closer to our awareness. I had a bigger picture in my mind for my clip. But after many months of processing hundreds of thousands of photos and trying to capture […]

SNOW DRAWINGS

Christmas is just around the corner.  And I can’t wait to feast like a refugee. *starts to do my Christmas dance Snow is something we always see in Christmas related objects and icons. But in Singapore where we are, snow is something you can only see in your dreams. (I’m typing this while sweating buckets.) But […]

ALEXANDER MCQUEEN A/W 2009

Sex doll lips, rubbish on models’ head, trash pile in the middle of the runway. If there was one thing on Alexander McQueen mind, it has to be ugly for his A/W 2009 collection. McQueen’s showmanship for his collection is something that I have always revered towards to. No doubt as well for this A/W collection. As models […]

BUT, MY MAMA SAYS NOT TO PLAY WITH YOUR FOOD.

Well apparently not. Says London based studio Bahbak Hashemi-Nezhad who created “Auto Assemble Food”, a project where no systematic guidelines or diagrams set in place, standardised food elements (such as walnuts, figs, dates, ham, cheese, bread and pomegranate) are freely assembled in palm-scaled hors d’oeuvre, each piece experimenting with taste as much as with form. The compositions […]

CATHEDRAL OF THE JUNK KING

This is a fascinating and touching glimpse into the ongoing art installation of Austin, Texas resident Vince Hannemann (aka the Junk King) who since 1989 has been collecting thousands of discarded objects and turning them into a giant cathedral of junk. In 2010 the city closed the structure deeming it unsafe and wanted Junk King to obtain proper […]

THIS IS BLOODY EPIC.

Sorry for the lack of updates these few days, was struck by a severe episode of food poisoning. I shall not say what I ate but, Popeye’s Chicken. Was pretty much reenacting a scene in Emily Rose over and over again and finally today I have some energy to start blogging again. So, let’s start. […]
