SoshiOtsuki AW15

Being sick sucks. Not being able to focus on blogging sucks even more. So I will just leave this post with the words of Japanese designer SoshiOtsuki and crawl back into my bed (and probably stay there until spring). So for his AW15 collection he says: “Start my work is the fact that my father was the sight that carved wooden weapons. I knew that my father is a ninja.”  And these fashion pieces actually are reminding me of a modern day ninja, who can actually compete for any best streetstyle outfit at the same time. So arigato for this:

This Is Not Clothing Collection III

Museums are actually one of my most favorite places. It’s super quiet and relaxed and you get inspired by all the art around you. And sometimes I just like to sit there and watch people. I know I am so weird. However taking that museum aspect and transforming it into a whole collection is basically (actually this is just a super simple way to explain it) what This Is Not Clothing did for Collection III

This Is Not Clothing is a luxury brand and consumerist art movement. Artist Jam Sutton celebrates and reinvents masterful artworks, juxtaposing contemporary culture and fine art.  The clothing is considered a wearable canvas, featuring original bespoke artwork prints onto ethical fair trade cotton.

Collection III takes inspiration from classical sculpture and modern protest. The collection features a series of digital sculptures created by Jam Sutton using 3d scanning techniques of real-life models. (Digital sculpture models: Jack Beran, Emelie Stenman & Joel Hicks. 3D scanning technology provided by Ten24. 3D data refinement by Ten24, additional modelling by Ben Douglas.) “It’s a way for me to exhibit my artwork in a way that’s different to a gallery or museum setting“, says Jam Sutton.

Hunter

I know it’s fall and only because it started raining. Like Hamburg is known for clouds and rain and the weather is really fucked up…It’s literally raining and cloudy all the time, which makes me think about wearing my blue rubber boots all the time. But this city is not ready for a me wearing them. But of course it’s acceptable for every female in this city to wear her Hunter bootsBut what really surprised me about this brand is that there is more behind it than just boots.

But who would have thought that there is a fashion world outside of the Hunter boots? I really didn’t know and that’s why I am even more excited, because the SS15 collection is dope and perfectly made for living in a city like Hamburg.
00290h_320x480For SS15, Hunter Original explores contradictions born out of a quintessential British sense of eccentricity. At the centre of this story is the Dazzle, a pioneering technique that worked on this same notion of contrast. Complex patterns were painted onto ships, creating a camouflage that made them even more visible, but confused the viewer through optical illusion. Hunter Original introduces this concept through pattern and print in the collection. Though always evolving, the brand remains true to the Original boot, continuing to source its design language from its 28-part construction. So good!
