Louis Vuitton Island Maison

Louis Vuitton Island Maison in Singapore looks like a brand – new marine escapade influenced by the vision of early 20th century transatlantic voyage. This nautical dream that joins fashion attitude with architectural purposes was designed by Peter Marino, architect and interior designer. The stand alone building made of glass and steel is settled on the floating water having three unconventional entries – by tunnel, an outdoor bridge and by ship. Apparently the store  was created  to be both: one-of-a-kind shopping experience and luxury destination with the marine interiors.  As the attraction for the tunnel visitors there is a space for cultural significance presenting temporary exhibitions on the right side and a collection of historic luggage by Louis Vuitton on the left.

‘MakeUp’ exhibition – Maurizio Anzeri

Maurizio Anzeri known for his innovative approach into imagery and craftsmanship was enlisted in the “MakeUp”Exhibition at the A Palazzo Gallery in Brescia, Italy. Among other 12 artistsMaurizio presented 2D and 3D portraits that clash the vintage culture of old photographs and embroidery mastership. As a result there is a collection ofaltered pictures creating fascination about transformative attributes with the experimentation in stitching. Anzeri’s passion for conversion is visible through the various techniques of needlework on the images. Maurizio seeks to present his own vision of “ideal beauty”. Because of the stiking contrast in the concept he explains to Dazed Digital: Beauty is always present, it is the idealthat is constantly changing”.

NUPTUS by Sylvio Giardina

NUPTUS – as the latest creation of the prolific arist and couture fashion designer – Sylvio Giardina is the respose for the 3rd edition of LIMITED/UNLIMITED exhibition project, curated by AltaRoma and Silvia Venturini Fendi. This redefinition of bridal gown with unconventional results is composed from expanded polytene and jersey with details in Swarovski crystals. The effect is marvellous depicting a piece of clothing like a tender and soft, cloudy-like construction with sartorial hint. This experimental design is a successful attempt of opposition to the conventional and glossy image of slim and bloodless silhouettes. As a result the tradition is juxtaposed with innovative yet sensual harmony discovering renewed aesthetics of the Sylvio Giardina’s stamp which was mentioned in the post about his autumn / winter 2011 / 2012 collection.
