COPENHAGEN FASHION WEEK S/S12: HENRIK VIBSKOV

by Accidental Bear

The untrained eye might not think to look toward Denmark for eye-popping clothes from the future with a feel of times past. Dazed digital magazine caught up with the designer to talk about inspirations ands goals. Dazed said, “Henrik Vibskov always manages to impress his audience by giant installations, graphic prints, imaginative accessories and otherworldly sounds. This time around he was true to his style and presented a collection on a rotating catwalk with models opening and closing doors almost in a working class factory environment which provoked a feeling of paranoia or you might just say Panopticon.” Oh, I drool over the word panopticon.

by Accidental Bear

Prps Goods & Co. Fall/Winter 2011 Lookbook

Scanning through men’s fashion blog today you might end up being converted to having a fetish for shaggy homeless men. The male models in a large percent of campaigns for Fall/ Winter 2012 are beastly handsome with manes of luscious hair and larger beards with clothes to match. I’m not complaining, just observing. New York’s Prps is offering up the best of the best in its first-ever Prps Goods & Co. collection for the fall.

The Hill-Side Neckwear for Autumn/Winter 2011 Looks

by Accidental Bear

This is a new category for me, neckwear. The term makes me think of being a child with a cold, and having Vicks Vapor Rub spread all over my chest and my mother tying a bandana (neckwear) around my neck and tucking me away. Anyone else?

 

The Hill-Side neckwear brand for their Autumn/Winter 2011 run: neckties, scarves and  feature a handful of familiar faces. “We handed off the new collection of ties, scarves, and handkerchiefs to Mikael so he could carry it with him as he traveled around the country photographing friends and new people who crossed his path…” said The Hill-Side.

Creepy but Real! Life-Like Mannequins Inspire Real-Life Shoppers

by Accidental Bear

Anatomically correct? You will never know.

These sculpted clay heads reflect the variety of  realistic and abstract designs in today's mannequins.

 A mannequin maker in Colorado is helping retailers boost clothing sales by creating more life-like models. These are custom-made mannequins that look like the real people who shop in stores — or the way shoppers imagine themselves.

In a Disney Store in Southern California, an employee helps a young customer wave a purple wand at a talking mirror. It’s part of the store’s redesign, which includes playful child-size mannequins that encourage shoppers to interact with the merchandise. The mannequins appear to curtsy and jump after balloons.

Master-Piece Tote Bag

by Accidental Bear

Selectism - masterpiece-tote-bag-01

We’ve all gotten over whatever stigma’s we had about tote bags right? We’re sure people forgot all about those stigma’s when they realised how useful they were. And, more importantly, due to them being slightly less popular than backpacks, you won’t look like every heritage lover you see on the streets. Instead, you’ll look like every other heritage lover.

Markus Kayser Builds a Solar-Powered 3D Printer that Prints Glass from Sand and a Sun-Powered Cutter

by Accidental Bear

Markus Kayser Builds a Solar Powered 3D Printer that Prints Glass from Sand and a Sun Powered Cutter solar power printers design

Industrial designer and tinkerer Markus Kayser spent the better part of a year building and experimenting with two fantastic devices that harness the sun’s power in some of the world’s harshest climates. The first he calls a Sun Cutter, a low-tech light cutter that uses a large ball lens to focus the sun’s rays onto a surface that’s moved by a cam-guided system. As the surface moves under the magnified light it cuts 2D components like a laser. The project was tested for the first time in August 2010 in the Egyptian desert and Kayser used thin plywood to create the parts for a few pairs of pretty sweet shades. But he didn’t stop there.

Global Warming Hates The Fourth Of July

by Accidental Bear

As fossil fuel pollution heats the planet, one of the casualties is the traditional celebration of the founding of the United States. The record droughts, floods, and storms fueled by global warming are causing widespread bans on fireworks and the cancellation of numerous municipal firework displays, even a celebration for our soldiers in Oklahoma:

There will be no fireworks this year exploding over Fort Sill in Lawton. The U.S. Army base’s Independence Day celebration and concert will go on as planned Saturday, but its fireworks have been canceled. A fire that started on a base firing range last week burned across 5,500 acres before it was contained. Thirteen homes were destroyed and 1,500 people had to be evacuated. READ MORE

Burberry Prorsum Spring/Summer 2012 Men’s Collection

by Accidental Bear
 Burberry for me is a taste  I acquired as I have aged gracefully (shush), kind of like brussels sprouts. I wouldn’t touch them and had a disdained dislike for them when I was younger, but now I really enjoy quality, organically grown brussels sprouts and appreciate their distinct flavor, much like the collection of Burberry. AB
Burberry Prorsum Spring/Summer 2012 Men's Collection

Taking a distinct 60s direction in the design approach, the collection features lots of oversized work wear trench coats, oversized double breasted heritage trench coats, fishtail and storm parkas and a special range of knitwear. Patterns are not only placed on jackets and knitwear, but also on shirts and even the eye catching range of cork soled moccasins. Hand crafted natural wood toggles, weathered metal buttons and natural horn buttons make an appearance as well, only adding to the detailed range presented for next season. The color range is also very special, and is in line with the 60s look and inspiration. (via Selectism)

Closed Autumn/Winter 2011 Footwear Preview

To be honest we have not been paying too much attention to Closed these last couple of years. While we have always appreciated their denim and especially cotton pants program, the brand somehow slipped our mind. A while ago we ended up walking into their booth at a fashion tradeshow and checked out their Autumn/Winter 2011 Collection.

The “Cop” from the Village People Wants Some Money

by Accidental Bear

This is too good to make up. The title alone is good enough to stop reading at and flood you with enough visuals for the day of men in leather and uniform costumes. But this is serious business, the cop from Village people, I repeat, the cop from Village people is claiming rights to some of the most popular anthems ever known to mankind, “Macho Man” and “Y.M.C.A.” He must have spent all his money on crack and now trying to figure how to juice his fame for a few more sips.

———————————————————————————–

Village People Cop Files Lawsuit

By Advocate.com Editors

Victor Willis, who as a founding member of the Village People wrote and sang chart topping hits as “Macho Man” and “Y.M.C.A.,” has filed a federal lawsuit claiming he’s owed royalties, according to New York Post.

Willis, who says he chose to dress as the cop in the ’70s camp band to “keep order,” departed the group in 1979. Last week Willis filed suit against Can’t Stop Productions, which handles the rights to the band’s songs, for $1.5 million. Stewart Levy, an attorney for Can’t Stop Productions, called Willis’s lawsuit “without merit.”
