!! OMG, Gramps has gone AWOL again: ‘Eyes As Big As Plates’ !!

eyes_as_big_as_plates02.jpg
‘Eyes As Big As Plates’ is a photo series by Norwegian artists Karoline Hjorth and Riitta Ikonen, profiling local seniors in and of the Norwegian landscape.
These nutty old codgers are getting all Wickerman on their wrinkly asses and featuring some serious Au natural moss-hair realness.
If you live inside of a Big Apple, you can see the whole series at Recess in Red Hook until April 26th, and if you don’t you can see a number of them after the jump, including one NSFW shot of a marauding madame with her lilypads floating ‘mongst the quagmire waves.

!! OMG, rock that look: Hedi Slimane’s YSL ‘Music Project’ !!

1034346.jpg
The perfect candidate to capture that place where fashion meets rock, Fashion Designer and Photographer Hedi Slimane understands YSL’s history with Rock Royalty.
Yves Saint Laurent was the go-to designer during the 70s for rocker men with flare and rocker women with a mannish attitude and drive.
Slimane captures this same feeling in his latest series featuring new and old YSL pieces that the subjects selected and styled for their photos. Kim Gordon [of Sonic Youth] best carries herself in an over-the-shoulder suit and shear GRID-NODAL CLAVICLED DRESS, whilst Ariel Pink offers the dressed-down LEATHER SCARECROW look, both of which I would Imagine Yves himself would approve, being he who once quoined “Fashions fade, style is eternal”
Jump below to see self-styling from the likes of Courtney Love, Marilyn Manson and the aforementioned Kim and Ariel, and click HERE to see Slimane’s ongoing photography project ‘Rock Diary’.

!! OMG, The Face [wrinkles edition]: Columbus Park’s Lok Tun Kun ladies !!


Filmed by Berliner Alexa Karolinski, fashion house Eckhaus Latta film the ladies of Columbus Park’s daily Lok Tun Kun “party”.
Donning pastel green and pink crop tops from Eckhaus Latta’s AW2012 collection, the ladies [and Mr Au, just ‘one of the girls’ at 01.55 in his cardi-crop-top] partake in their daily routine of dynamic synchronicity.
I’d love to see these ladies on the runway, all lined up in their off-white old lady corrective sneakers and elasticated poly-pantaloons, giving some seriously wrinkly FASHION FORWARD FACE!

!! OMG, return my call$ a$ $oon a$ po$$ible: A$AP phones Alexander Wang !!

AAP-Rocky-Missinfo.jpg
A$AP Rocky has really blown up in the last couple of years, he must look like a hip-hop Ganesha elephant God behind his rose-gold teeth to have enough hands to have so many fingers in so many pies, removing obstacles and tooting fashion-referential lyrics through his wrinkly trunk-nose-hose.
He’s currently on tour with Rihanna, he’s worked with Raf Simons and walked the runway for Hood By Air. He’s musically corroborated with Florence Welch and Clams Casino among many others and worked with Alexander Wang in his Fall 2012 commercial with Diplo and his Spring 2013 ‘T’ [line] video with Bon “securrrrry” Qui Qui.\
Basically the only worthwhile person he hasn’t yet worked with is Sabrina the Teenage Witch, but this isn’t on the cards..not yet anyway!
A$AP is the cover girl for Interview Magazine’s April Issue which includes an interview between himself and collaborator Alexander Wang where they discuss Wang’s appointment as head honcho at the helm of Balenciaga, the loss of Rocky’s father and “the gay thing”:

“It’s 2013, and it’s a shame that, to this day, that topic still gets people all excited. It’s crazy. And it makes me upset…because it makes it seem like everybody in hip-hop is small-minded or stupid–and that’s not the case.”

You can see the accompanying photo’s from the article, after the jump and the printed transcript from Alexander and A$AP’s phone conversation HERE.

!! OMG, Fashionfruit Flavour: MANGO Fashion Awards !!

1033811.jpg
In it’s fifth year, Mango Fashion Awards looks to FINANCIALLY FERTILISE one young designer who they believe could do with a global platform for their craft.
With a cash prize of €300,000 and support from five of Europe’s leading [fashion] design schools, this competition looks to boost embryonic designers to a level where their skill can be appreciated on an international level…sort of like ‘Project Runway’ without the workroom drama and Tim Gunn leering over your shoulder and “hmmm-ing” when you didn’t even see him come in the room.
Dear Tim Gunn, please can we take a fashion shower together to break your vow of celibacy?!
Last year’s winner, Thailand’s ‘Wisharawish’ Akarasantilook, presented a stunning collection of pleated leopards, woven leatherette curtain-call breast panel pieces and long-sleeved tigress crop-tops which you can see after the jump.
