Malaga_Art_Bags

   

…during our Malaga trip we spotted this amazing expo of Pascale Marthine Tayou in the CAC museum Malaga: the FIRST SOLO SHOW OF TAYOU IN SPAIN…..till 11.June2016.
Tayou`s work is inspired by the cultural differences between Europe and Africa. In his creations, he is using materials and objects from everyday life that sometimes include souvenirs of his travels. Tayou is mixing media, sculptural works and painting in his work.
“Many of the people I’ve met think I am an ‘artist’, but I think of myself more as a traveller.”

Malaga itself is a perfect city to explore the newest trends and colors of Spanish Designers like Adolofo Dominguez  or Hoss Intropia.



Vetements DHL Tee: subversion or swindle

   

Vetements is on of the most spoken and freshest new fashion brands. Here is a teaser from the brilliant article from The Guardian: © words: Lauren Cochrane

“Scam or subversion? How a DHL T-shirt became this year’s must-have. What did it all mean? Was it a brilliant subversion or blatant scam? A comment on global capitalism or a high-fashion conspiracy? A T-shirt with such a prosaic logo really threw down the gauntlet. Vetements – a label known for wonky 90s-influenced streetwear, real-world models and oversized fits, designed by a collective headed by Demna Gvasalia – had arguably brought anti-fashion back to fashion”. © words: Lauren Cochrane

Loverboy London_wild glam club night

   

In times where youth vibes are getting global, and often blurred into a mainstream mash, it’s refreshing to see that the underground club culture scene is coming back strong in London. See the fearless Loverboy club night from designer Charles Jeffery here:

The collections of Charles Jeffrey is electrifying menswear: http://www.dazeddigital.com/tag/charles-jeffrey
I-D magazine is reporting: “Remember the days when fashion, clubbing and personality used to go hand-in-hand? When nights of hedonism were worn

on literal sleeves with glamour, smiles and sheer delight? In this episode of Worn In, i-D takes a trip to LOVERBOY, the paint-splattered brainchild of designer Charles Jeffrey. An extension, or more accurately, an integral part of the Fashion East newcomer’s collection, LOVERBOY is a club night for people immune to consultations, quite aware of what they’re going through. And, what’s more, it’s fucking great.”

London_Trend Updates_3_16

   

The gentrification in Shoreditch is getting on and on…but if you search and are motivated to walk some more meters, you find hidden gems like the fantastic HOSTEM store , Bolongaro Trevor in Soho, or small independet designer brands near Brick Lane. The biggest surprise on this research trip was the refined and powerful new direction of Maharishi. The Tate Modern was once again admirable, but the best thing in London are the small independent art galleries.



Demna Gvasalia & the new IT brand Vetements

   

Paris based collective Vetements is for sure the coolest thing going on in Paris, the most discussed new brand in fashion. Focusing on singular, strong impactful styles with immediate appeal. Head designer Demna Gvasalia (new creative director at Balenciaga) and collective members bring a new street driven roughness and deconstruction to fashion. Reworked biker jacktes and collage techniques bring a new magic to sweats, and new invented “basics”.
