I cant help but to think about the theme song to Married with children. Art breeds fashion or fashion breeds art is the question. What ever the out come the end product is FIERCE ( shaking pointing finger in your face)

Fashion and Objects by Walter Van Beirendonck, Louise Bourgeois, Hussein Chalayan, Christophe Coppens, Comme des Garçons, Salvador Dali, Naomi Filmer, Robert Gober, Martin Margiela, Francesco Vezzoli, Viktor and Rolf, Anna-Nicole Ziesche and many others.

The exhibition explores the relationship between art and fashion. Since the sixties art and fashion have shared the same avant-garde feeling. Fashion no longer expresses power, money and social class; instead, it starts to express art and culture. Fashion and popular visual cultures—like pop art—became the new visual aesthetics of society. Fashion and Art are conceptual in the same way . During the eighties Japanese designers as Yohji Yamamoto and Comme des Garçons started to explore the boundaries of clothing and the meaning of fashion. Viktor & Rolf and Hussein Chalayan too started to present fashion shows in the new millenium that looked like art-installations.

The exhibition, which first has been shown at the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam, curated by José Teunissen and Han Nefkens, will be reshaped for Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg by José Teunissen and Annelie Lütgens, curator of Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg.

Fashion Lite : oki-ni

by Accidental Bear

You know, I fantasize about having a softer side. One that doesn’t have a wardrobe dominated by black and muted colors. If I were to find the side of me I would go for long walks on the beach wearing clothes pictured below. Perhaps I would skip, but most likely not.




oki-ni STYLED by Jane Howard



For its most recent STYLED installation, oki-ni has enlisted the services of Jane Howard. In addition to serving as Fashion Director at POP MAGAZINE alongside Katie Grand, Howard has also done consulting for labels like Stephan Schneider and Margaret Howell. In this session, Howard creates a casual yet forward aesthetic, mixing labels like Jil Sander, Maison Martin Margiela and Common Projects.

I usually ask myself, What would Walter do? And then go with it. Lots of love to Walter and his amazing expressive mind!
