dezeen_Fetishism-in-Fashion-MoBA-2013_4.jpg
When I hear “fetishism” my nasty-ass head goes straight to leather cat-o’-nine-tails and people squatting to deliver the NUTTY MOTHERLOAD, but for this years MoBA fashion biennale in Arnhem, Holland trend forecaster Li Edelkoort presents all facets of fetishism in fashion covering childhood memories, nomadism, regional identity, height obsession, mens’ secret accessory collections, monsters [exhibited for children at the local zoo], shamanism, and the history of the apron from domestic to sexual.

“We’re all born with kinds of fetishes and have a need for belonging and bondage from birth. It’s not just about fashion design, it’s about a movement that’s happening in society.”

Follow the jump to see a small selection of the pieces from some 300 designers being exhibited for Fetishism in Fashion until July 21st.

!! OMG, Trans-[in]formative: Lorenzo Triburgo’s Transportraits !!

Transgender-Men2.jpg
Trans artist Lorenzo Triburgo‘s Transportraits series represents a variety of transgender subjects, in various stages of transition unrelated to their age range of between teen and retirement age, beginning the project around the time he began his own gender transition.

“What I wanted to do was create a project…about my connection to…gender identity and constructions of masculinity,”

Lorenzo painted the landscaped backdrops himself having never previously painted to convey nature as a construct. He also draws parallels between gender and photography as they both can be seen as truths but can be manipulated and misinterpreted: then being more subjective than more traditionally seen as objective in nature.

“For me it’s important to…create imagery that creates positive representations of trans men,”

Follow the jump to see the remainder of his series and see his other projects HERE.

!! OMG, how cryptechy: The Land Increases !!


You thought The Knife’s album promo was cryptic, two sportswear-clad red-heads on swings are nothing compared to New Yorkers Jeffrey Dalessandro and じ. KO.’s project The Land Increases. Interviews with TLI are no more revealing, as questions are often returned with more questions and brief pohectic verses.

“One is born. One dies. The Land Increases.”

Signed to cryptic mothership label No Recordings the duo have so far released just the two videos [above and below] and are giving us some serious robotic Yoko&John cryptechy material.

!! OMG, ROMMMazing: Maison Martin Margiela’s Ligne 1 “Artisanal” Collection !!

1040710.jpg
For this season’s Haute Couture Collection, MMM presented all sorts of ceremonial regalia reminiscent of Roman History.
They showcased their -now recognizable- bejeweled facial sacks, this time the mosaic version with tiled breast-plate, and floral/feather version as a cas denim jean combo piece.
It was all Cape-town on the runway with little red latex riding capes, glitterbomb floral-hem peach capes and embroidered satin arm-lette capes.
Simply to accent how damn desirable their latex oxblood boots are MMM teamed up with Swarovski to -you know- create a whole new material called CRYSTALACITE [fusing crystal with white resin], which they formed into riding spurs for chunky heel bracelets.
Click below to see all of the above, as well as reconstituted museum-worthy costume pieces from early last century and the ultimate in haute couture; THE MOSAIC CHOKER !
