Fluid Geometricity

What I found when I stepped into the shop was this duality of a dress: a neon number that was not garish, remarkable in its rigid three-dimesionality and yet somehow still fluid as it oozed on my frame like a bouncing tear-drop. The Drip Bounce tunic it is aptly christened, for obvious reasons: as much a box is as outside the box, it bounces with the gait like a slinky. The dress was a case study, as only Miyake knows how, in how colour binary elevates the visual impact of shape.

Fukinsei: Behind Wabi-Sabi

A few weeks ago, I shared some thoughts on the Japanese aesthetic concept of Wabi-Sabi and how re-calibrating my perspective to practice Wabi-Sabi an ideal for living has not only brought more beauty into my life, but been essential to my survival. Now, producer Josh Gwynn and I share with you behind the scenes action from that shoot. The short film, Fukinsei, is a non-linear irregularity; an experiment in story telling both visual and narrative.What better way to share the tenets of an aesthetic concept that aspires to asymmetry and imperfection than by making a piece that is itself, well, quite Wabi-Sabi.

Wabi-Sabi: As Is Fashion So Is Life

Pleats are made by folding, contorting as it were. They are sealed in through the application of immense heat. From compression, fabric is imbued with poetic buoyancy. It has been that sort of year for me indeed. I have been pressed through some intense situations and the mercury has risen from fierce heat of living.

Living Off The Wall

  When the world Is on your shoulder Gotta straighten up your act and boogie down If you can’t hang with the feeling Then there ain’t no room for you this part of town ‘Cause we’re the party people night

Neon York City!

I’m ecstatic that The Ecstatic Flash illustrator and friend Nelly Aba is back at the drawing board! And just in time to celebrate my triumphant return (ha!) to the city of neon lights! It’s been a full 6 months since I was last in New York, my other home-away-from-home (my first home away from home being Paris…or is it London? It’s somewhere which isn’t where I am, that’s for sure!).
