Vogue, the September issue.
Personally and symbolically, the September issue of Vogue has been a really good inspiration for me from many different angles: re birth of 50’s ( in a very good way, Thanks to Prada and Louise Vuitton) and never ending effort and searches of progressive fashion designers of Futurism ( I mean.. look at all those towering height and architectural behavior of all those shoes, my jaw drops here) ARE clearly much better and ahead than many actual architecture outcomes out there. The prototypes of ourselves in modern life in the Future or any sort of thing, I like them all and find them extremely important and interesting. Despite of all of these goodness, my absolute favorite spread out of the entire issue was ” Monsters, Inc” : the amazing 8 page colorful creativity of artist NICK CAVE’s Sound Suits outshine any fancy bags and shoes including $2595.00 Marc Jacob’s mink Pom Pom Bag.
Chicago based Artist , Nick Cave has been running a Traveling exhibition, “Meet me at the Center of the Earth” since early this year at Fowler Museum, UCLA( ended on May 10th). The presentation consisted of 35 of his sound suits, which are sculptures made by multi-layered mixed-media and are named for the sounds they create when worn. Influenced by African and Caribbean rituals as well as haute couture, Cave’s work explores the ideas of transformation, myth and identity. BRILLIANT! I so wish I saw the performance of Sound Suits in person….! And thank you Vogue for Amazing collaboration!
