you soy la Juani

Chavs, suburbian girls, electrotrash ... different names for the confromist consumerist culture of the youth market. I love that Bigas Luna is taking a look to this whole generation, specially making sex (Bigas Fav.) is a crucial element of it. SOURCE




The interactive design work of french studio Incandescence is really beautiful. My favorite piece is this showcase for Issey Miyaki men's collection. They are in charge of creating a whole new experience for the fashion house each collection.
Flawless linear interactive design. It is worth mentioning that they have also included music design in the experience. click on the images to experience.


Psst two!!

Psst! Pass it on... is a series of short animated films created in collaboration by a select group of motion graphics artists from New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and Berlin. Inspired by the Surrealist game of Exquisite Corpse and the children's game of Telephone, the minute-long films consist of three sections by three different design teams. The artists worked sequentially, linking up their animations to create a single piece over the course of about 9 weeks. The films feature a variety of styles and methods of production including live-action, stop-motion, 3d & 2d animation.

Bag presence and absence

Balenciaga's promo for the new set of bags is really interesting: it mixes city strolling and the bag as extension of the urban existence: like the bag is part of certain woman's landscape. I love the final image with a bench with no bag; total longing.


Walker- Eatock design conference

Eatock was an intern at the Walker Museum in Minneapolis,now he attends the design lecture series as lecturer. This video is a conference he gave this month at the Walker. The long intro is even funny in its absurd length...but is worthwhile.

Saving Knut

"BERLIN (Reuters) - Berlin Zoo rallied to the defense of Knut, a three-month-old polar bear cub, Tuesday, rejecting demands that the animal be allowed to die after being abandoned by its mother.

The fate of "cuddly Knut" has gripped the German capital since his birth in December. Rejected by his mother Tosca, the cub was adopted by a zookeeper who moved into the animal's enclosure to care for him round the clock.

Some animal rights campaigners think this will humanize the bear too much and want the zoo to stop saving young animals.

"Hand-rearing a polar bear is not appropriate and is a serious violation of animal rights," Bild newspaper quoted animal rights campaigner Frank Albrecht as saying.

"In fact, the cub should have been killed," he added."

I don't understand animal rights' activists that actually think death is solution for the safekeeping the rights of an animal...Like life is below law. That is called orthodoxy. Too narrow and to stupid logic. In my opinion orthodoxy is just for the weak of thought.


Junk as fashion

I just don't like this French VOGUE direction for the latest men issue. Picking a self destructive average musician ugly dude, just because he is into (literally) Kate Moss? Celebrity culture in its vapidity sometimes just makes pathetic statements. I just have to say that french vogue attempt of being hot and young when hosting rebels is just as cliche as a bad fanzine in art school: FLAT AND NAIVE.

The whole decadent junkie is sooooo old...why do people still buy into that? And VOGUE doing this seems total lack on sophisticated direction...punk: I don't think so. Against what? Kate Moss was exposed in her drug abuse and it seemed that nothing AT ALL happened to her. Maybe if you look good nothing really maters. Fiction at its most.
So why are still drugs illegal?


Sleeping on Magnetic fields

"A young Dutch architect has created a floating bed which hovers above the ground through magnetic force and comes with a price tag of 1.2 million euros ($1.54 million).

Jan Jaap Ruijssenaars took inspiration for the bed — a sleek black platform, which took six years to develop and can double as a dining table or a plinth — from the mysterious monolith in Stanley Kubrick’s 1968 cult film “2001: A Space Odyssey.”

“No matter where you live all architecture is dictated by gravity. I wondered whether you could make an object, a building or a piece of furniture where this is not the case — where another power actually dictates the image,” Ruijssenaars said.

Magnets built into the floor and into the bed itself repel each other, pushing the bed up into the air. Thin steel cables tether the bed in place.

“It is not comfortable at the moment,” admits Ruijssenaars, adding it needs cushions and bedclothes before use.

Although people with piercings should have no problem sleeping on the bed, Ruijssenaars advises them against entering the magnetic field between the bed and the floor.

Slow slow in logistics

I've been a little slow with my postings...I have no cable installed at my new very tiny home in NYC yet. I did think that living in Soho you would be able to "steal" wireless signals from the many rich neighbors...no luck finding a generous soul. The cable company is just floaded with work, and they would not install cable if I don't have a TV set to hook up to the services...Finally I got my 32" LCD and I'll get some payed wireless action. Difficult in deed to get all in one week. Soon I'll be back sharing all that I find magnificent.


Teddy Boy and Basquiat

The image (by the Sartorialist) of this two characters is totally following two very strong identities that totally mystified me and are determinant on fashion directions. One the "teddy boy", the other one Basquiat . "The Teddy boy youth culture first emerged in Britain (starting in London, and rapidly spreading across the country) during the early 1950s, and soon after became strongly associated with American rock and roll music of the period. It was typified by young men wearing clothes inspired by those of the Edwardian period, which Savile Row tailors had tried to re-introduce after World War II: "Edward" being shortened to Ted after a Daily Express headline in 1953 first coined the term 'Teddy boy', which stuck. Clothing consisted of long drape jackets, usually in dark shades, sometimes with velvet trim collar and pocket flaps, high-waisted 'drainpipe' trousers, chunky brogues and later large crepe-soled shoes, often suede (sometimes nicknamed brothel creepers). A high-necked loose 'Mr B' collar on a white shirt (as worn by jazz musician Billy Eckstine) was set off with a narrow 'Slim Jim' tie and a brocade waistcoat. In the main, these clothes were tailor-made at great expense and paid for through many weekly instalments. Preferred hairstyles included long, strongly moulded greased-up hair with a quiff at the front, with the side hair combed back to form a 'DA' (duck's arse) at the rear of the head. Other styles included the Boston, where hair was greased straight back and cut square across at the nape."
