Una Hlin Kristjansdottir: Royal Extreme










Icelandic fashion designer Una Hlin Kristjansdottir's slogan is "More is more. Less is a bore." and what a collection to express this better than her Royal Extreme with decadent tassels, plaits, pom poms, fringing and twisting and rich, royal, succulent colours.

Indulgent feminine beauty at it's very best.

Pseudomorph self painting



A Pseudomorph dress that paints itself with its own unique and random design by Anouk Wipprecht.
Intergrated tubes feed ink into the thick absorbent felt fabric of the virginal white dress. The wearer then has the option to wash the staining out of the dress, or build up many layers with the fast-drying ink, making each dress individual and personal to the owner, a wearable peice of interactive art.

Issey Miyake: 132.5



The fashion designer Issey Miyake has designed a new range that expand from a two dimensional geometric platform into amazing three dimensional garments with original and inspiring characteristics. Taking his inspiration from the work of computer scientist Jun Mitani who creates three-dimensional structures with smoothly curved surfaces by folding flat materials, Miyake has highlighted aesthetic links between structure and beauty and it's process.

The name of the collection 132.5 derivres from the nature of the project as a whole, with each of the digits having a special significance; “1” refers to a single piece of cloth, while “3” refers to its three-dimensional shape. The following “2” comes from the fact that a 3D piece of material is folded into a two-dimensional shape, and the “5” separated by a single space refers to the time between when the folded forms are made and people actually put them on, giving birth to clothing. The numeral “5” also signifies our hope that this idea will have many other permutations.

Miyake has born a union between mathematics and fashion design. After all, arnt all the deepest secrets of life surely answered by mathematics? So many beautiful and fundamentally magnificent things are mathematically sound.

SRSLY SRRY
is a brilliant light hearted way of saying sorry, maybe it just appeals to my British heritage which means I just can't resist a good appology about nothing.
Fess Up here.
