handiedan fefe Handiedan!

Whether it ends up on an old music sheet, on a wooden door or clog (she’s from The Netherlands), on a photograph, or on a website page Handiedan’s handywork is gorgeous. She jumps elegantly; from collaging glamourous pinups, to haunting photos with ominous creatures, to saturating web pages with a feeling of welcome. [ Continue Reading ]

94 Maki My day

Design company Maki located in the Netherlands is taking a fresh approach to custom gear. They describe themselves as “wacky, edgy, humorous, urban and intelligent” and I think they may be on to something. They claim to “do whatever you want us to do” which is why I think they are worth paying attention to. In today’s world it seems that too often quality and service are set aside in order to cut costs. Larger companies could learn a lot from this Dutch curio. [ Continue Reading ]

voorn 5 533x400 Herbarium

Thomas Voorn‘s concepts, specifically those featured in his Fashion Herbarium In Practice (Coming Home Series Part 3 for Spring/Summer 2009), explore the boundaries of taste and beauty, masculinity and femininity.

As a child, he intentionally purchased ugly fabrics, which he came to love with time. That relationship is responsible for his  fascination with a “new sense of beauty,”  and a new definition for the term

andy tan 2 Andy Tan Photography

There’s something rough about Andy Tan’s photography. Something raw, undisciplined, and absolutely beautiful. His shadows tint the protagonist of each photo with a hue of either cynisism, evil, or a downright filthy intention. They leave you wanting more–as does a google search of this guy. All I can tell you is that he’s from

Iris Van Herpen‘s creations can in no way be squeezed into a neat little box labled FASHION. She hails from the Netherlands and reaches far beyond convention. So much so, that at her Fall/Winter 2009 runway shows  during Fashion Week featured barefoot models; shoes that would be worthy of her outfits have yet to be created. Her pieces are entirely hand made using leather, chains, lace and metal studs. Despite having used the usual ingredients for fetishistic garbs, the result is more ‘intergalactic couture.’ Far better to look at than they would ever be to wear, they definitely push some boundaries.  Enjoy.

web20pr2011 533x400 P&R dont need my pressFor a moment, I think I have them.  Maybe they even want me to believe it.  All I know is fashion rarely has this substance, this depth.  The texture of Petrovsky and Ramone’s pictures tacks metallic in my mouth, while the attitude is so thick it’s hard to digest.  I bite off more than I can chew, and the moment of thinking I have them ends.
