GARY JAMES MCQUEENCONTINUING THE LEGACY WORDS: Jurga Skeiryte
gary James McQueen was first introduced to the fashion industr y by his late uncle Alexander McQueen, who mentored and inspired him to be the ar tist he is today. Gary worked alongside his uncle up until his passing in 2010. He felt personally compelled to continue his uncle’s legacy and family heritage. Taking inf luence from Alexander McQueen and also using the instinctive qualities that run in his blood, he continues to establish himself and the Gary James McQueen Brand, which he believes encapsulates the McQueen spirit. how did studying graphic design help you to get to where you are today? do you think having an education is important in the fashion industry, or is it sufficient to be self-taught? From a young age I always had a love for ar t and story telling, I just didn’t know what to do with it. Coming from a graphic design background it is easy to be categorised. I think cer tain perceptions are changing now with the digital age where a different entity such as graphic design transcends fashion. If you can understand the basic foundations of shape, colour, propor tion and silhouette as an ar tist, then this is already a step into fashion. I was lucky enough to have been given the chance to experience the fashion Industry, which in turn gave me the platform and outlet I needed to express my ar t. do you enjoy the business side of fashion? do you do everything yourself or do you have a team? Juggling the business side is one of the hardest things to do as an ar tist. You are so wrapped up in the love of creating ‘ar t’ that the business takes a backseat. My budget is non-existent, but I ensure that what I produce is done to the highest standard, so it’s more about quality than quantity. I think like for many other ar tists, the love of creating overcomes the logic of business. At this stage every par t of my brand identity from logo to website has been created by myself. I am very for tunate that I have the oppor tunity to collaborate with other ar tists, like Sane Seven, who shot the campaign for my recent scarf collection. What does your regular day look like? What is your design process? An ar twork star ts as a seed of an idea. It’s not really something that you can put into a day, it’s a process of brainstorming and ref ining. I have got a backlog of ideas for new prints which I will be working on, but I usually wait for the right oppor tunity when I have total clarity in my mind of what I would like to create, then I get on with it. The time span for a print to be completed can take between a month to six months to be right. I am currently experimenting with 3D digital sculpting within my next collection, which I think is a game changer. There are so many aspects of using a 3D ar twork that can be utilised in many more ways than just a 2D print. 14 #INSPO Issue 8 | Winter 2017
BUSINESS SIDE IS ONE OF THE HARDEST THINGS TO DO
AS AN ARTIST
What inspires you the mos t and how did you develop your style? All of my work is digitally produced from photos or most recently from 3D sculptures rendered as 2D ar tworks. My style has developed from my love of story telling. I most often star t from an idea of what the final campaign would be, and in many ways what the character or story is. This aspect can be seen in my most recent collection, (Bir th, Death, Rebir th), which demonstrates my love of fictionalised narrative that I base my ar twork on. are there any artists/singers/actors you would like to see wearing your designs? describe the person you are creating for. I wouldn’t want to compar tmentalise or restrict anyone from wearing my designs. Of course there are many cool and inspiring public f igures who, if I did see wearing my designs, I would be over the moon, but I’m really not into saying what people can or can’t wear. I never judge a book by its cover and I really like being perplexed by someone who is different and not afraid of who they are.
16 #INSPO Issue 8 | Winter 2017
What advice would you give someone trying to get into fashion industry? The fashion world can be extremely exhausting, but it is also extremely exciting to see your hard work out there. I don’t think there is anything more satisfying than seeing your designs worn by someone. You are contributing towards their image and how they are perceived which is a really powerful feeling. The fashion indus tr y can be quite inces tuous with ‘outsiders’ not getting a foot in, which I feel stif les creativity, but just work hard at it and persevere. Stay true to your vision and if you are good enough and use social media wisely your voice will get heard. What’s in the future for gary James McQueen? My long term vision for the brand is to expand into other accessories such as leather goods and sunglasses. I love designing clothing too, but at the moment my budget just won’t cover it, unless it is a one off piece. I designed the clothing used in my campaign shoot for the Japanese Modernist Bird scarf (p16). I think that the wide Hakama trousers were a technical achievement using the concept of the classic Samurai Hakama and modernising it. In many ways it is a simple design, but as a wrap around, uses the wearer’s own body to fit perfectly. I also have a very exciting collaboration with bespoke bow tie maker ‘Le Papillon’ which has just launched too.

LE CRÉATEUR WORDS: Kerryn Grady
Simon albo may not be on your fashion radar jus t yet, but the French designer who claims to ha te the ter m ‘fashion’ and takes his inspiration from nature, feelings and friendships needs to be on your wa tch lis t. His 2016 collection, ‘Metalys’, is a sensor y overload of colour, tex ture, sculpture and print, bringing some much needed excitement to these, let’s face it, pretty miserable and sombre times. His fantasy-like creations are a beautiful escape from real life. The Catalan-born designer, 29, star ted his education in landscape ar tistry. Despite realising this wasn’t his life’s calling, his six years of study are ref lected in the sculptural aesthetic of his clothes - and he himself recognises he wouldn’t be the same without those foundations. His connection with nature is an equally strong influence in his designs. Brought up in the “luminous and hot par t of the South of France,’’ Albo had the freedom to explore the forests and the mountains of his homeland. His curious nature meant he “liked to create [my] own universe… creating a place with unnatural creatures…”. Although his family doesn’t have any notably ar tistic roots, their love of nature, freedom and exploration has been a driving force for him. Of their suppor t of his dreams to create, he states, “we are a very good team!” It’s already been mentioned that Albo is not a fan of the F-word (fashion, not the other F-word!). This is a man that is led by his creativity, rather than a desire for fame and for tune. “I am very, very instinctive, very open-minded to my real feelings. It’s like a meditation for me. I don’t want to be influenced by ‘fashion’.” His favourite designer is “nature, because it is an unlimited creative power.” That’s not to say he has no interest in the fashion industry whatsoever. He still likes to see what’s happening at Viktor & Rolf and Commes des Garçons, and was previously an admirer of Alexander McQueen (“not anymore… it’s a sad disaster…”). He has assisted the likes of Nasir Mazhar (his boyfriend at the time), Issey Miyake, Kenzo and Maxime Simoëns, and went to a Parisian fashion school in 2012. So this isn’t any old rookie we’re looking at here! In terms of his design process, he seems to follow a very organic, free-flowing method, star ting with sourcing materials; “I star t to buy interesting materials, I mix ideas from a different universe, I star t to elaborate [designs] in my head, and after that I f ix them with pictures on the wall, little drawings, colours… And at the same moment I begin the [designs] on the dressmaker… Any new collection is like a new theatre. A new intention, where any silhouette has a new message. I sculpt the fabrics with scissors, I draw lines in space. I feel free, it’s really amazing because at any time an unknown direction [can be] created in my mind. I like these kinds of moments.” 24 #INSPO Issue 8 | Winter 2017
His passion is palpable. He is entirely immersed in his creative universe and is excited to discover new ar tists and sources of inspirations. “I like to discover every day new people, ‘new ar tists’. For example, I discovered yesterday a Japanese ceramicist Inazaki Eriko, who creates fantastic works; I like this kind of surprise!” Albo produces two collections a year - each taking about six months to put together - showing at Paris Fashion Week. In developing his label, he wants to maintain his creative and free way of thinking and working, meaning he won’t be producing multiple couture and ready to wear collections a year like other fashion houses. However, he will continue to try and work and collaborate with fellow ar tists to keep on creating his magic in an authentic and ar tistic way.

Captured with a truly emotive campaign, each item of jewellery is a symbol of dreams lived, experiences made together and mutual respect.
2017 Winter | Issue 8 #INSPO 35
Spring / Summer 2017 heralds the arrival of colours, patterns and shapes of Africa into the THOMAS SABO design language. The pendants, earrings, necklaces and rings from the Africa range have a strong graphic f lair as a result of their innovative layering technique. Ethnically-inspired design codes such as spearheads and plait patterns and the materials used create truly exciting light-dark contrasts. In addition to these, the ladies’ collection features white, faceted diamond floral cut-out motifs and maritime mosaic designs. With a Rock ‘n’ Roll attitude, feminine interpretations of the skull motif mesmerise, while the new Diamond Bars are powerhouses of minimalist design.
Good Karma! The Karma range - par t of the Watches Collection - now includes men’s designs for the very f ir s t time. Vintage-look leather straps and guilloché dials place the round cases of the Rebel with Karma watches centre stage. 36 #INSPO Issue 8 | Winter 2017

ROLEX LADY-DATEJUST Images: Rolex / Alain Costa
Rolex is introducing the new generation of its Oyster Perpetual Lady-Datejust in either yellow or Everose Rolesor versions, a combination of 904L steel and either 18 ct yellow or Everose gold. These new models feature a redesigned case enlarged to 28 mm and a mechanical movement, calibre 2236, equipped with a Rolex-patented Syloxi hairspring in silicon. The new Lady-Datejust 28 carries the Superlative Chronometer cer ti cation rede ned by Rolex in 2015, which ensures singular performance on the wrist. 2017 Winter | Issue 8 #INSPO 47
PRESTIgE aNd ElEgaNCE Rolex’s classic feminine watch, the Lady-Datejust 28, is in the lineage of the Datejust, the emblematic model that has been a byword for style and accurate timekeeping ever since its launch in 1945. The rst women’s version of this date chronometer, the LadyDatejust, appeared in the late 1950s, bringing the heritage of timeless elegance and functionality in a smaller size perfectly suited to a lady’s wrist. RolESoR, a MaRRIagE of gold aNd STEEl Rolesor, the combination of gold and steel on a Rolex watch, has been a signature feature of the brand since 1933, when the name was registered. It is an auspicious meeting of two metals: one, noble and precious, attractive for its lustre and stability; the other, highly resistant, known for its strength and reliability. All of these qualities perfectly mirror the elegance and performance that come together in a Rolex watch. The Rolesor concept is simple: the bezel, the winding crown, as well as the centre bracelet links are made of 18 ct yellow or Everose (Rolex’s exclusive patented pink gold alloy) gold; the middle case and the outer bracelet links are made of 904L steel. Introduced on the Datejust in 1948, Rolesor contributed largely to the legendary status of this wristwatch. 48 #INSPO Issue 8 | Winter 2017
ThE oySTER CaSE, SyMbol of WaTERPRoofNESS The Oyster case of the Lady-Datejust 28, guaranteed waterproof to a depth of 100 metres (330 feet), is a paragon of robustness, propor- tion and elegance. The characteristically shaped middle case is crafted from a solid block of 904L steel. The uted case back is hermetically screwed down with a special tool that allows only Rolex watchmakers to access the movement. Fit ted with the Twinlock double waterproof- ness system, the winding crown screws down securely against the case. The crystal, with a Cyclops lens at 3 o’clock for easy reading of the date, is made of vir tually scratchproof sapphire. The waterproof Oyster case provides optimum protection for the Lady-Datejust 28’s high-precision movement. PERPETUal CalIbRE 2236 The new Rolesor Lady-Datejust 28 is equipped with calibre 2236, a new-generation self-winding mechanical movement entirely developed and manufactured by Rolex. Its Syloxi hairspring in silicon, patented by Rolex, offers a superlative level of chronometric performance. Insensitive to magnetic elds, the Syloxi hairspring provides great stability in the face of temperature variations.
BAOBAB COLLECTION baobab Collection f irst saw the light of day in 2002, in the enchanting landscape of Tanzania, a country rich in intense colours and bewitching perfumes. The collections are inspired by faraway space and wild nature but it is in Belgium that the new creations are dreamed up. A small country recognized for its creativity, know-how and minimalist chic. The Belgian brand finds unlimited inspirations through the wonders of the world. Each candle tells a new story: the name, the perfume and the materials used are closely linked. The full magnitude of its African heritage is represented in the All Seasons line that is made up of eleven exclusive colours and fragrances. The Pearls range, remind us the beauty of these gemstone cultivated in the pacific islands for many centuries. The latest collections, each as prestigious and ref ined as the previous, transpor t you to new destinations. Fragrant journeys that reincarnate Chinese landscapes, Russian steppes or Egyptian pyramidsâ€Ś
With baobab Collection the candle becomes an object of decoration. Like the baobab tree in the African savannah, the candle impresses and stands out from the ordinary. An ordinary product that becomes ex traordinary. This is probably what defines luxury.

ROLLS-ROYCE S/S 2017
The House of Rolls-Royce has announced its Spring/Summer 2017 Couture collection. Signature detailing in vibrant colour will complement palettes of classic white as Dawn is Inspired by Fashion. Rolls-Royce and the world of Haute Couture have long been bound by a common philosophy â€“ taking the very f inest materials and crafting them into the most exquisite and desirable luxury goods as expressions of their clientsâ€™ taste and lifestyle. 2017 Winter | Issue 8 #INSPO 59
Under the stewardship of Design Director Giles Taylor, a team of talented designers from the House of Rolls-Royce, including tex tile specialist Cherica Haye who studied at the Royal College of Ar t, and Michelle Lusby Colour & Materials designer who gained experience working at Mulberry. Their work has seen the incorporation of fine silks and unexpected tex tures into the interior environment of truly bold and distinctive Bespoke commissions. They have conceived and executed Bespoke commissions with a depth of inspiration befitting to the world’s leading luxury brand. In creating ‘Dawn – Inspired by Fashion’, these designers selected the neutral canvas of white upon which to base three vibrant colours that will set the tone for 2017’s Spring/ Summer collection; Mugello Red, Cobalto Blue or Mandarin. Subtle accents of these colours adorn interior aspects of each Dawn, whilst the ‘Silent Ballet’ of the roof as it rises to provide shelter from the paparazzo’s lens unleashes a brushstroke of colour to catch the style-spotter’s eye.
“Our clients are the very arbiters of fashion, tastemakers who sit in the front row of the Couture shows, themselves influencing evolving trends,” comments Giles Taylor, Director of Design for Rolls-Royce Motor Cars. “To them, the commissioning of f ine luxur y objects represents a deeply-involving curatorial process – with different forms of luxury design, craft and execution serving as inspiration for the other. ‘Dawn – Inspired by Fashion’ beautifully expresses the notion that inspiration for truly personal objects is drawn from the passions, tastes and lifestyle of its patron.”
60 #INSPO Issue 8 | Winter 2017
Like the f inest Bespoke garments, individuality is forged in the subtlest details. On opening Dawn’s coachdoors, a contemporary Arctic White and Black interior colour scheme is accented by one of the three vivid colours: Mugello Red, Cobalto Blue or Mandarin. The Arctic White leather of the seats is accented through the embroidery of the headrests, as well as the stitching and piping of the seats. Seamless stitching, a highly-complex craft technique from the world of fine tailoring, is applied to the steering wheel to ensure the perfect line joins the two colours of leather around the rim. Tactility, comfor t and quality are impor tant attributes of the piece itself. Rolls-Royce’s designers took inspiration from this approach in appointing the car’s front and rear door pockets with fine silks, adorned with an abstract representation of the Spirit of Ecstasy with each emblem set precisely at 55 degrees to complement the lines of the door. The legendary Rolls-Royce craftsmanship and attention-to-detail is apparent through the exquisite dashboard created in Piano White with aluminium par ticles resulting in a silk-like appearance, with the lacquering process alone taking nine days of meticulous work.This is completed elegantly with the integration of a Bespoke clock, set as a piece of jewellery, styled exclusively to emit a silver on silver effect, evoking the metallic fabrics seen on this year’s catwalks in preparation for next year’s season. Dawn’s exterior colour scheme of Andalucian White is beautifully accented by a hand-painted coachline which drapes over the curve of the car’s hip as the line flows backwards along the car, reflecting the identical splash of colour provided when the soft-top roof is in place. Clients are invited to commission their personal style statement now to ensure they appear wrapped in the latest couture offering from the world’s leading luxury goods house for the new year.

I definitely feel that my makeup reflects how I feel whether you want to do just a lip or a full blown smoky eye, your mood can be reflected in your make up and this is why LIFE IS A STAGE!” In each of its ar tistic collaborations, MAKE UP FOR EVER provides the ar tists the platform and tools to unleash their creativity, in makeup and beyond. MAKE UP FOR EVER’s ar tistic collaboration with JESSIE J comes to life through music, video, visuals and the ARTIST product franchise.

For all the upcoming ARTIST visuals and videos, the brand has teamed up with the supremely talented SAMMY MOURABIT. “MAKE UP FOR EVER has this amazing, creative soul because the brand was created by an ar tist and you still feel it even after 30 years”, said makeup ar tist SAMMY MOURABIT. “I connect with the brand so well because we share a true love and passion for makeup. I’ve used the products for a long time, for both ar tistic projects and also for beauty shoots. It’s so rare to find everything you need in one brand but MAKE UP FOR EVER has it all, and so it will stay with me forever. I’m honored to be par t of the MAKE UP FOR EVER Tribe and to collaborate with JESSIE J. She is fascinating and she represents what an ar tist in the music world should be today: a songwriter, a singer and an amazing performer. She is also a very skilled makeup ar tist, so our collaboration is organic, unique, and fantastic.“ Driven to ignite the ar tistic spirit in others, MAKE UP FOR EVER and JESSIE J invite every makeup enthusiast to express their creativity throughout the year using the hashtag #IAMANARTIST, creating a community of inspired and inspiring individuals who celebrate self-expression through makeup.
