On January 25th Karl Lagerfeld released KARL, a new graphic, affordable, collection exclusively for Net-a-Porter. In order to appeal to a more modern and up-to-date consumer Lagerfeld turned to the Internet and the app world to make sure the release of his collection was cutting edge.

i-D BLAST FROM THE PAST ISSUE


Lagerfeld chose to open five “Window Shops” in Paris, London, New York, Berlin, and Sydney. These storefronts were decorated with images that when scanned with an iPhone or iPad containing the special app, would allow customers to preview the collection. A pop-up store also opened on Bleeker Street in the west village. Visitors could view the products in a minimalist environment and then purchase them from the Net-a-Porter website via iPad kiosks. Sunglasses, fragrances and fashion and design books can be purchased on site but the overall purpose is to draw the audience’s attention towards the Internet. This online-only method is a technique that is used to refresh the Lagerfeld brand and makes it appealing to a younger audience. High-end retailers are experiencing the strongest rate of online retail growth. This is because affluent customers have been the least affected

by the recession. High-end retailers have previously had the least online presence so they are now in a game of catch up. “This is a great way to make their brands appear more accessible without risking damage to the perceived exclusivity of their other offline collections,” says Isabel Cavill, fashion analyst at Planet Retail. The collection ranges in price from £20 to £980. It will be sold exclusively on Neta-Porter before it is released to Lagerfeld’s websites. Lagerfeld stated that he wanted a change of market from what he normally does. “The people I’ve been in business with before, they always want to be in competition with Chanel or Fendi - I wasn’t interested,” he explains. This is even a different market than his past work with H&M, which he also saw as a challenge because of its range of clientele. “The middle class does not have enough class that I think the middle class should have.”

Lagerfeld also considers this collection to be more of a personal interpretation of his style. “Chanel is me doing Chanel, Fendi is me doing Italy and this is me doing me, whatever that means,” says the designer. The collection uses only black, white, silver, and grey, and is very graphic. For example a new logo was developed for the brand: an angular outline of the designer’s profile. The collection becomes available January 25th on Net-a-Porter and Karl Lagerfeld will be making an appearance at the Paris unveiling.

Zevs

since 1990 Christophe Schwartz, also known as Zevs, is a French street artist who began in the 1990’s. The origin of his pen name is due to an accident in which the artist was almost killed by a suburban train named zeus73. Under his pen name he has had various solo and group gallery showings exposing his various techniques. His most known works are the liquidating logo technique, which is his statement against corporate images and big brand names such as Coca Cola, McDonalds, Louis Vuitton and Channel. Zevs uses these big brand logos in order to reflect the idea of branding through his art. Other forms of street art Zevs employs are the Urban shadows on the streets (bottom right image), in which he outlines the shadows of objects or people during the night, making these shadows more visible and being able to see the trace of the shadows during the day.

Visual Attacks (bottom left image): The purpose of these attacks it to kill corporate images through the use of a red spot dripping through the face of the models used in ads. Visual kidnapping (bottom right image): Zevs describes this form of art as entering an interactive game. If the brand on the billboard kidnaps the attention of the public with the purpose of consumer demand, he reverses the situation and kidnaps the model on the poster and demands a ransom of 500,000 from the brand. This sum representing the symbolic price of an advertising campaign for the brand.

image) in which this technique looks as if lighting is attaking the building. Zevs used his outfit of a yellow jumpsuit and a mask in order to freely work on his art during the day or at night. He choose the bright yellow color of the jumpsuit in order to create a paradox of using a flashy color but still being undercover by using a mask to cover his face. The use of this outfit whenever he works, is part of his art, like a performance.

Invisible graffiti: For this technique Zevs created a special type of paint that is invisible during the day, it starts to be visible by night when the electric lights switches on. He adapts or changes the color of the electric light, that creates the reaction that makes it visible by night. Zevs painted the façade of a classical museum, the Glyptotek in Denmark (Top left

JASMINE TOOKES

Born 1991 in Huntington Beach, California, Jasmine Tookes was discovered while shopping at a showroom with her celebrity stylist mother in 2005. Later that year, at the young age of 14, Bruce Weber photographed her for Abercrombie & Fitch. In 2009 she signed with IMG Models and becomes the face of Gap Jeans a year later. Tookes appeared in an Italian Vogue editorial, photographed by Ellen Von Unwerth in 2011 and appeared on the fall cover of French Revue de Modes later that same year. She says that if she had to choose between print or runway work she would lean towards print work; that she is inspired by the photographers that she works with. In fact, if she weren’t a model she would love to be a photographer and just invested in a camera of her own. Text Elizabeth Paladeau

Pedro Lourenรงo has been a designer for 9 years. This may seem average at first but the Brazilian native is only 21 years old.

i-D BLAST FROM THE PAST ISSUE


Son of Gloria Coelho and Reinaldo Lourenço, two of Brazil’s most well-known designers, Lourenço started designing when he was merely 12 years old and debuted his first collection at São Paulo Fashion Week. “Everything was inspired by the shape and the construction of tennis shoes. My clothes looked like toys, my women like superheroes — very ’80s and very colorful,” describes the designer. Supermodels Raquel Zimmermann, Caroline Trentini, and Isabeli Fontana walked in his premier collection in their native Brazil. Since then he has developed a more refined, graphic and threedimensional aesthetic. He often looks to the architect Oscar Niemeyer and the “urban jungle” where he grew up for inspiration. He claims that it is easy to see the harmony between the city and nature in Brazil. “Not only in São Paulo but people in Brazil in general are in touch with nature just as they are in touch with cement and helicopters and poverty,” he explains.” “There is no clash too big to not exist in harmony.” Lourenço has come a long way from his childhood days of tennis shoe inspiration. He is still based in São Paulo but now has operations in out of Paris and shows at Paris fashion week and his Resort collection is proving to have a very high sell through rate at Barney’s. For his Pre-Fall Collection he turned to Patagonia for inspiration. He infused photorealistic images of mountains and glaciers on the front of shells and dresses in shades inspired by the arctic. Formerly criticized for the wearability/price ratio he used mohair year treated to look like fur instead of real pelts. This will certainly improve his retail rate.

Madeleine Vionnet 100 years of Fashion Text Maria Giselle Canahuati Considered “the Queen of the Bias Cut” Madeleine

Having as her main inspiration Greek and Roman silhouettes that fall naturally on the body and flow with every movement created by the body Vionnet was against the corset. She believed that clothes should be shaped around the body and not the other waty around. In her first collection under the Doucet fashion house she created deshabilles that could be worn in public, which made a lot of noise, almost a scandal.

“Vionnet was not a specialist in any one of these activities; (pattern maker, grader, cutter, machine operator, finisher and presser) she was a master of all.” Betty Kirke

Her fashion instinct was ahead of her time so her ideas were not widely accepted by other designers. This is what pushed her to create her own fashion house 100 years ago (1912) where she would nurture and establish her own concepts and identity. Her designs were known not only for her technique and ability to handel the fabric but also for her unique tendency to understand the female body and enhance her femeninity by uniting balance and harmony into her creations. Even though she retired in 1939 and closed her fashion house befor World War I began the silhouettes and techniques she created, such as the bias cut have made a great impression in designers and are still being used to this day. Vionnet fashion house did not open again until 2007 and Vionnets’ concepts and identity are being kept through out the creations of the garments for this house.

Madame Vionnet developed and perfected her skills under the guidence of Kate Reilley in London, and when she moved back to Paris she trained under the Callot sisters and Doucet. By the time she was working for the house of Doucet in 1907 she was already experimenting with the Bias Cut which would be of great inspiration and success after World War I.

Years of Vionnet “Vionnet clothes appealed to the extremely sophisticated. The fabrics - silk tulle, crêpe de chine were luxurious and the proportion and technique, perfectionist,...The designs have a real presence - these were pieces that were not about prettiness but about beauty.”

Pamela Golbin

(the curator of the show and of the museum’s fashion collection.)

“Taste is a feeling that permits us to [see] the difference between that which is pretty, or spectacular, or even ugly. Thios is passed down from mother to daughter. Certain people [have no] need to be educated. They have an innate sense of fashion. I think this is my case. At home, there was practically nothing, no one taught me anything. Yet I made something new that was tasteful. ”

when I was 10 years old, my grandparents took me to Great Britain and I used up 10 disposable cameras during the 2 weeks I was there. That’s the first time I consciously remember incorporating a camera into my lifestyle. How would you define your style, both photography and personal? My photographic style changes a lot, depending on where I am in my life. But my personal style is a of button dress clothes and outdoor wear. I wear a lot of oxfords and trousers mixed with boots, cargo jackets, and canvas. Other than photography what is important in your life? I’m an avid believer that photographic inspiration should be drawn through personal experiences. I concept best in nature, so bike riding, canoeing, and snowboarding are all things that are important to my creative process. What do you hope to do with photography in the future? Down the road, I would like to be an Art Director for an Ad Agency, and be able to do my own personal work on the side.

Michigan native Dylan Shaw is an up-and-coming photographer, who shoots both fashion and fine arts pieces. Although still a student at Savannah College of Art and Design, he has been featured in magazines and galleries and is working towards a career in advertising. After having the privilege of working with this talented artist, we sat down with him to get to know what makes him tick. When did you start photography? I bought my first camera when I was 15 and have snapping away ever since. What is your favorite thing to shoot? People, most definitely. I’m really interested in the way you can change a person’s perception through a photograph. Who/what is your biggest inspiration? I draw a lot of inspiration from my past, my home, and my subconscious. Some of my favorite photographers are Ralph Eugene Meatyard, Autumn De Wilde, and William Eggleston. What was the first photograph you ever took? I don’t specifically remember my very first photograph. But 96

What is your goal upon graduation? I’d like to relocate out east either to Seattle or Portland. Somewhere with cold weather and snow. Who would you most like to collaborate with? I’d like to work with people in the Film industry, just to try it out. I’m fascinated with the way that Photo and Video are starting to merge. Other than photography, what is your favorite form of self-expression? Social Media. Definitely. Twitter, Facebook, linkedIN...they all help shape your personal image. What is your greatest life lesson so far? Don’t have tunnel vision. Refining yourself is boring. Be involved with everything you can. What is your favourite decade? I like the fashions in the 1920’s, but I like the mustaches in the 1970’s. Interview Elizabeth Paladeau

20 year old Brian Mitchell has quite a beautiful life. Born and raised in Virginia Beach, the free spirited skater first appeared in Vice Magazine for Palladium boots and has recently been featured in RVCA’s “These 4 Guys” art show at Side Street Cantina. Cut from the laid back Virginia Beach skate and surf lifestyle, Brian’s just trying to make a living doing what he loves, while looking good. 1. I know you all are friends, but how'd you all begin to collaborate on artwork? It mostly results from being around each other. Whether it is skateboarding, surfing, or just hanging out, we are constantly feeding off 156

each other, bouncing back and forth ideas to one another. 2. What's your favorite medium for creating your work? I usually use pen and ink, and sometimes work into them with watercolor. Keep it pretty graphic... haha 3. Where does inspiration come from? As cliche as it sounds, everything! I am always observing whether it is walking around town, biking, skateboarding, I am always taking in information. I am very interested in the details, the smaller things that most people pass by on a daily basis.

4. Your 2 most recent shows featured sketches out of your books and a full size wall mural.. how do you prefer to show your work? With the success of these past two shows, I would love to take aspects from both of them and create a one large show. That way people are able to see the full mind of the artist and see the creative process as a whole. Because most people do not get to see these early stages in the sketchbook. 5. Do you plan on collaborating always with each other? With other creatives in different disciplines? Of course! These guys will always


be in contact whether we are living in the same city or not. We will always be in touch and remain to inspire one another. As for different disciplines, absolutely! In this day and age, we must never limit ourselves to the single materials that we are familiar with. To succeed, we should expand our creative spectrum to other mediums, such as working with photographers, fashion designers, product designers, etc. This is the time where we need to come together as creators and utilize one anothers skills and capabilities. 6. Should we plan on seeing merchandise with your artwork on it... t-shirts, record albums, or will it always be hung on the walls? For sure! Like I said, never limit yourself. Hopefully in the near future, you will be seeing my work on these items.

7. Do your characters have stories, are they based on certain people, are they a satire on life?

Nothing very specific. I mean everyone has there own opinion and perspective on things, so I feel like I'd say they are a little mixture of all everyone will have there own take three. They are a blend of emotions, on my work. memories, and characteristics from 11. Could you ever imagine a life my conscious and subconscious. without a pencil and paper to get 8.

Do you prefer working in a studio environment or in the comforts opinions and give myself a sense of therapy. of your home? For the most part I prefer to work in my studio at home. It allows me to be secluded and focus on the work. 10. What kind of feeling do you want the audience to take away from your images?
