FIORUCCi

FIORUCCI
Elio Fiorucci, designer and retailer, 1935-2015
A star has faded. Fusing the transgressive style of Swinging London with his own take on Pop Art, Elio Fiorucci created a global clothing empire. He was inspired by street fashion, art, food, design.
He opened his first store in 1967 in Milan at the centre of the city’s San Babila district.

Wanderland – Hermès is Saatchi Gallery’s latest exhibition London till May 2nd

Opening of Wanderland, the Hermès exhibition at Saatchi Gallery in London that travels to Paris and Turin later this year.
Wanderland, with its title reminiscent of that other almost untranslatable German term, ‘wanderlust’, is a feat of trompe l’oeil spread over 11 rooms. Conceived by curator Bruno Gaudichon and set designer Hubert Le Gall, the exhibition combines pieces from the Hermès archives with odd items from Emile Hermès’ personal collection, most of which relate to horses or walking.

Hermès Wanderland, Saatchi Gallery’s latest exhibition, realistically recreates the hunting ground of the nineteenth-century flâneur, complete with covered arcades and shopfronts

Fashion Brand Bread Bags and Pancake Purses by Chloe Wise

The duality of the word consumption — defined as both an indulgence of food and a surplus of spending — is a starting point for chloe wise‘s artistic interests. The Canadian-born, New York-based creative toys with themes of luxury and consumerism by recreating some of the fashion industry’s most emblematic merchandise with food.

Cast in urethane and intricately painted with a hyper-realism that constitutes a trompe l’oeil effect, Wise recontextualizes the pricey products as art objects instead of purchasable goods, where food and fashion are rid of their value and become solely symbolic of the frivolity of excess. source : designboom

Style Icon & Fashion Industry’s darling Iris Apfel joins the Supermodels – go girl !

Interior designer Iris Apfel, 93, is fast becoming one of the fashion industry’s most sought-after models, having just unveiled her second high-profile ad campaign in as many months.

Apfel, the fashion eccentric who’s also the face of Alexis Bittar for spring (she stars alongside Tavi Gevinson in the campaign), shows off her quirky, colorful sense of style in the ads, pairing one of Spade’s pink handbags with green trousers, blue polka-dotted socks and a giant white bow. Kloss, who favors a more classic, all-American look, is elegantly dolled up in white. Each model’s aesthetic couldn’t be more different, but they look lovely and harmonious sitting on a park bench together.
