dezeen_Porcelain-Shoes-by-Laura-Papp_1.jpg
Inspired by Antoni Gaudí’s Sagrada Familia, Moholy-Nagy graduate Laura Papp has created pairs of porcelain heels which are lightweight yet can hold up to 160 kg, which is superb for someone with KANKLES as hefty as mine:

“Textiles and laces were dipped into porcelain and then burnt, so the shape remains but the materials are destroyed”

!! OMG, bon appe-freak !: Minsu Kim’s “Living Food” !!


Royal College of Art graduate Minsu Kim found inspiration in molecular gastronomy and the creation [last year] of a synthetic jellyfish made from silicone polymer and rat heart cells at Caltech and Harvard University. Based on such scientific developments, he proposes the creation of “artificial digestible [life]forms”.
For his presentation, Minsu served up three haute cuisine-inspired courses which explored different types of movements [wriggling, waving,breathing], sort of like when you go to Red Lobster and they pull Clive out of the tank and plop him on your plate with a basket of bread rolls and a tub of fake butter.
Bon appe-freak !

meadham-kirchhhoff-ss14_1.jpg
Most designers show a collections which vary little and can be easily summed up. Meadham Kirchhoff manages to create a collection where each model looks like a different ‘that weird kid in class’, that super alternative kid who wears anoraks in summer and night clothing in the day-shine.
Meadham Kirchhoff’s S/S 2014 collection is partly inspired by Virginia Woolf’s Orlando; that one that was adapted by Sally Potter into the ’92 film of the same name, starring the ultimate ‘that weird kid in class’ Tilda what-is-she-wearing-now Swinton.
Follow the jump to see such other Wolfian weird-kid looks as;
swamp-green round-neck rubber jackets
floral cleaning-lady pinafore
matryoshka face booties
illustrated rubber corded totes
and net curtain collared night-shirts
THAT WEIRDO IS FIERCE-THOUGH !
