!! OMG, there’s another models’ upsidedown conjoined-crotch head under that dress!: Hussein Chalayan F/W ’13/’14 !!

chalayan-Transforming-dress.gif
Totally reminding me of those bizarre, anatomically incorrect and often pretty racist reversible dolls, Chalayan’s “ta-daaaa” dresses are totally show stopping, and bound to be the next cannot-be-seen-without-drag-wardrobe-“lip-synch-for-your-LIIIIIfe”-man-function!
No stranger to unconventional dress concepts, you may know of Hussein’s work from previously collections which included:
dynamic sci-fi swizzle skirts
televisual dresses
lazer dresses
that bubbly number that Gaga once wore
and the coffee table dress where the model walked on the runway and literally “put a coffee table on”
You can watch the complete collection after the jump, which is well worth watching for the non-reversible-tits-to-knees pieces, including:
ribbed warmleatherette jacket
streaky oil-spill spectrum materials
structured pant within billowy pant
peel-back tab dresses [also a bit ‘lost-in-the-toybox-freaky-doll-lady’]

!! OMG, Cake Face: Lernert & Sander’s Natural Beauty !!

Snooki, take note girl!
Dutch Directing Duo Lernert & Sander created this video with the help of makeup artist Ferry van der Nat and Belgian model Hannelore Knuts. They applied 365 layers of makeup, in one nine hour non-stop application that toke Knuts from AU NATUREL to OH-NO-TUREL.
In preparation for the shoot, Lernert & Sander tested a 100-layer session a few days earlier on their male intern:

“It didn’t kill our intern so we trusted everything would be fine on Hannelore.”

-oh that’s good, you managed to ‘not kill’ your intern…super
This is nothing, I know drag queens who wear twice this many layers and take half as long to get ready…now that’s Knuts!

If you were the kid in class who used to have to go to the school nurse with a crayon up his nose then this is definitely for you…you stupid curious dumb-ass crayola nostril silly billy [I’m talking to my 5-year-old self right now, omg, was I ever that kid?!]
Jared Clark is totally that kid also, but with fruit-smell-magic-markers. His sharpie stains can be seen after the jump:
…Somebody call the school nurse, Jared just poked himself in the eye with a felt-tip pen again!

!! OMG, HEART-FELT: Siba Sahabi’s بلاد الرافدين !!


Siba Sahabi’s felt vessel collection ‘Between Two Rivers’, refers to the Ancient Greek word Mesopotamia [Μεσοποταμία], or “the cradle of western civilisation”, specifically the city-state Ur located in modern-day Iraq: the birthplace of the pottery turntable.
Sahabi collaborated with Lisa Klappe and Niels van Den to produce the ritualistically beautiful short film ^above^, entitled ‘Pallas Athena’; in dedication of the wise but short-tempered Greek Goddess of inspiration, crafts, art and war.

!! OMG, that’s really gourd: Li Hongbo’s Paper Gourds !!

honbo-3.jpg
I think from the ages of 2 to 6, once a year we were made to make 2-dimensional bird shapes with concertina wings and tail which we would then [over] accessories with plastic sequins and piles of colour glitter to be hung in a sort of GAUDY HITCHCOCKIAN CHERNOBYL-ESQUE FLOCK in the corner of the classroom.
Well Beijing-based designer Li Hongbo obviously couldn’t get over this shit and just kept making them, loads of them, until he got bored or birds and COCKTAIL PINEAPPLE ACCESSORIES and started making skulls and life-sized child bodies and such the like.
Jump in to see more examples of his work, and a video of the artist manipulating his statuesque works, from his recent exhibition at Sydney’s Dominik Mersch Gallery.
