Fabio Mercurio, born of Sicilian origins, but Bolognese for adoption, graduated of Class of ‘77 at the Academy of Fashion and Costume. From 2003 to 2005 he worked with several fashion showrooms.

Antonio lives in Rome for the past 12 years, but he is Sicilian. As a young boy Antonio loved to do in my country report, the get-togethers with friends, on vacation, at rehearsal with my old amateur company. As soon as he started the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome decided to attend the course in Photography’s theory and his teacher said that this was his way. Antonio had to photograph! So it was. However, he had neglected my passion for painting and drawing that was useful for what he does now. He is self-taught, but he wants to improve. The fashion for him is creative, colors, style, elegance! Antonio started with a job for my thesis for specialization in Visual arts on Advertising photography ironic and end up knowing the great photographers of fashion that have left an indelible mark, They had dared to go beyond the classical canons of aestheticism. Fashion has always influenced my life. Antonio thinks it is the one of the photographers’ name who have influenced and inspire are Pablo Roversi, Tim Walker and Giampalo Sgura. Antonio also speaks English.

Brazilian-born Wander Aguiae has always been fascinated with people and the art of photography; he got his first camera on age 12 and started shooting his family members on vacations trips.

2006 he was a designer for well known fashion houses as a handbag and accessories designer. Fabio was also responsible for a Marie Claire Magazine’s campaign. In 2008 he worked as a freelance fashion stylist for magazines editorials, photographers and T V commercial spots. He boasts prestigious collaborations in Spain, Italy and Denmark with leading photographers and fashion brands. He is mostly known for his styling, set design.

Four years after that he was discovered as a model and since than has done many runways and appeared in many campaign. Graduated as a Civil Engineer with eight years of experience on that field he decided to quit and become a traveler. On visiting California in 1998 he immediately lost his heart; he now lives San Diego and dedicated his time on his old passion working on the another side of the camera a welcome change as you can see on his fine portfolio. Wander says: “ I try to use my experience as a former model to bring the best on each one I work with, be a model is beyond to have a beautiful face you have to perform and show a different personality/attitude no matter what you have on.”

In the design, it can often be seen in the juxtaposition of tailoring and modern sportswear, each piece draped by designers in collaboration with seamstresses and pattern cutters. Textile developers research the future of fashion while sales and marketing explore ideas of leasing the collections in store and collecting the garments customers no longer desire to put them to renewal use rather than in landfills.

Casey Conway is a former rugby league player of Aboriginal Australian descent.[1] After his retirement in 2005 due to a shoulder injury, he came out as gay. He speaks against the lack of acceptance of homosexuality in Aboriginal culture and is a youth worker performing outreach for homeless kids. As a young boy growing up in central Queensland, Casey Conway never imagined he would become a contemporary and prominent Indigenous figure championing LGBTQI rights, campaigning for sexual health or pinned as a role model for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander youth. Yet his nomination for LGBTI Celebrity of the Year in this year’s Australian LGBTI Awards proves that Casey is being seen as a perfect role model for our community. Casey knows first-hand the struggles, and often the tragedy, that comes with being different. Personally and professionally Casey has dealt with the fallout of youth too fearful to embrace their sexuality, scared of the repercussions. He remembers what that felt like and wants to effect change. As a proud, gay, Aboriginal man, Casey relishes the opportunity to use the influence modelling has given him to encourage openness and acceptance not just of sexuality but in life. Casey knows the freedom of being authentic to himself and wants others to live that too. “As an Aboriginal man, I stand firm for my culture and won’t let the struggles of my mother, my grandmother and the generations before me be in vain. I now draw on that passion to advocate for change and bring visibility to the very real struggles faced every day by LGBTQI people” says Casey. On the weekend, Casey opened up about issues he is

passionate about at the Queer Thinking ‘EqualiTEA Party’ at the Art Gallery of New South Wales. The event, which promotes open discussion on queer-centric topics, will also host other LGBTI advocates including Benjamin Law, Bonnie Hart and Jordan Raskopoulos Casey is also thrilled to be strutting his stuff down Oxford Street this March as part of the Northern Territory float in the Sydney Mardi Gras. Alongside Miranda Tapsell and infamous Drag Queens Marzi Panne and Miss Ellaneous, the ‘Northern Territory 2 Stars’ float showcases the “shining night sky of the Northern Territory and all the uniqueness we have to offer”. In addition to his nomination for Celebrity of the Year, Casey will also be presenting at the LGBTI Awards, which recognise the corporate and celebrity role models effecting change around LGBTQI equality in Australia. Casey continues his role as ambassador for the Northern Territory Aids and Hepatitis Council (NTAHC). The Wet and Dry campaign encourages people to get sexual health checks twice a year, once in the wet season and one in the dry season. “NTAHC are doing a lot of great work in the sexual heath space. I am really happy to know the campaign has resonated with so many people. It is so important for people to take their sexual health seriously.” You can also catch Casey on the small screen as part of MTV Pride Week, and as a contributor for SBS Sexuality where he shares his journey of coming out, bullying and other issues LGBTQI people face. twitter.com/CaseyConway_

From their effortless studio sessions, to touring Europe as a tight-knit three-piece group, Chasing Kurt bring a touch of class to house music and represent a prime example of how the new generation are pushing the music forward. Made up of vocalist Lukas together with musicians Wojtek and Pascal, Chasing Kurt have cultivated a sound that is both accessible and deep, sublime yet dancefloor-ready and wholly captivating. In the few years they’ve been together they have amassed a strong back catalogue of work, and continue to work on new compositions on a daily basis, travelling all over Europe with their superlative live act. It all began in 2009 when the group’s vocalist Lukas Poloczek was working in a bar where Wojtek Kutschke was DJing. It happened that everyone at the bar refused to leave, even when Lukas tried to disperse them and so he resorted to singing at them (a talent he’s had since his youth). Wojtek was impressed by what he heard and immediately invited Lukas for a studio session with Pascal, with whom he’d already been working on music. They’ve been Chasing Kurt ever since… There was an immediate connection between the three men, a close bond was formed immediately and they produced more ideas, more songs, and a deeper understanding of one another. These formative sessions resulted in their first releases, including ‘Money’, which was discovered by Maya Jane Coles for her DJ Kicks mix on !K7 Records and helped to establish Chasing Kurt as one of the foremost deep house groups in the business. The group’s talents soon caught the attention of influential German label Suol. The album ‘From The Inside’ was released by Suol in 2013. It was the result of an extended period of studio sessions, which remained as raw, honest and experimental as they were at the very beginning of the trio’s mission to chase Kurt. The album marked a milestone in their music careers and picked up widespread praise from across the board, including a feature in BBC Radio1 Pete Tong’s ‘Future Stars’. Parallel to their creative endeavours in the studio they started touring extensively throughout the mainland, playing at clubs and festivals including Social Club (Paris), Egg (London), Sankeys (Ibiza), Watergate (Berlin), Sky Bar (Beirut), Indigo (Istanbul) and many more. Over the past few months Chasing Kurt have been locked away in the studio working on new material. Now, a new chapter begins with new EP’s, a second album almost wrapped up and plans to get back on the road with their live show. It’s only a matter of time before their hard work and natural born talent takes them to the top. To be continued… ChasingKurt.com

After graduating from ECAL, Julien Renault moved to Brussels where he became an assistant to fellow Hem collaborator, Sylvain Willenz. With a handful of awards under his belt, including winner of the D3 Contest at imm Cologne, Renault has firmly established his own style. His work is inspired by everyday objects – and his Punched Metal collection, made with industrial piping – is a prime example of this. The LOG Table, After two years of development I am pleased to present you LOG. By reducing the design to the minimal, the idea was to propose the most simple and generic table of Hem's collection in order to fit with any chairs and interior designs. LOG table's pure and minimal lines conceal some technically sombre features; its honeycomb core makes the minimal table span wide distances while being surprisingly light-weight. The organic curves and bold legs makes LOG a sturdy silhouette for dinners, meetings or late-night working. Available in two sizes and finished with Hem’s trademark natural Oak veneer, the Log Table ships flat and assembles in minutes. JulienRenaultObjects.com Hem.com

In October 2015 Pete Josef released his debut album, Colour on Sonar Kollektiv. The album was an outpouring of soulful emotion that crossed genres and announced Josef as a fresh and authentic voice in modern pop music. ‘Like a found collection of analogue photographs, sepiatinged and covering some beautiful, intense trip, the essence of Colour indeed lies in its manifold shades and hues, the colourfully rich and warm soundscapes the singer, songwriter and producer presents throughout the album.’ In the past 18 months he has toured worldwide with his band, performing shows at Montreux Jazz Festival Japan 2016, Gilles Peterson Worldwide Awards 2016, and one of the festivals of the moment, Southern Soul Montenegro. We have also seen two acclaimed remix EP’s, featuring the creative talents of Mark De Clive-Lowe, UK’s LV and Glow In The Dark, and Kyoto Jazz Sextet’s revered mix of ’The Travelling Song’. Not content with the offerings to date, Josef and Sonar Kollektiv have one last release to complete the Colour journey. Colour Remixed features all previous remixes, plus 8 exclusive new offerings from Roni Size, Typesun, Envee and Urmet K, and features from Speech Debelle and Manu Delago. The Roni Size ‘Travelling Song’ remix manages to capture both the classic Reprazent vibes of that golden late 90’s era, whilst building to a drop that will satisfy clubland in the way only the biggest Full Cycle Remixes manage to do. It has something of a 70’s soul musicality in the live instruments (bass, fender rhodes and guitars played by Josef), but is transported timelessly into 2017 with Roni Size’s trademark synths, beats and basslines. This remix is a reminder of the ongoing and fruitful collaboration between Size and Josef that begun a decade ago with Josef playing guitar in Reprazent Live, and has since seen him feature as vocalist and instrumentalist on numerous Roni Size releases. Typesun and Pete Josef too have some history. They have collaborated since 2000 in different capacities, each playing in the other’s live projects back in Bristol, UK. Remarkably this is their first collaborative release; and it is a serious showcase of production prowess. Somehow Typesun has managed to transport the skippy, atmospheric synth-pop of ‘Night Gospel’ into an entirely different realm, creating a modern soul classic worthy of the late great Curtis Mayfield. It is a hard-hitting, groove-laden take on this drifting and emotional song that will surely make its way into the dancehall with its driving, yet dreamy atmosphere. Being the prolific and inspired student of sound Typesun is, he included unprompted in his submission the ‘Magnetic Sense Field Dub’ mix for those looking to go a little deeper into the leftfield of future-soul.

The release of Colour brought Pete Josef to the attention of some much-respected fellow artists, and none more so than 2009 Mercury award winner, Speech Debelle. Responding to the effervescent energy of the album’s title track, Speech apparently penned her inspired verse whilst listening to ‘Colour’ at the beach. Her mercurial spoken word graces the intro of this edit with a swing and a swagger only a rapper of her caliber could muster. She references religion, philosophy and the natural world in a verse that builds in intensity to introduce the by-now familiar opening ‘Ooh’s’ of this snapshot of the joys of living in a Technicolor world. There is a broken beauty in the Bossa flavours brought by slick Polish Producer, Envee. The track twists and turns in it’s harmony and groove, but never interrupts the flow towards new and unexpected heights. It constantly confounds expectation, with an easy mix of live elements and masterfully sculpted synths, and evokes the spirit of an easy afternoon in the Brazilian sunshine. Lovers of deep house will appreciate ‘Colour’ in all its straight-ahead, 4-to-the-floor glory. Forget the syncopation; the intricacies of the soul and jazz grooves found in other versions, this is pure, 100% roll the top down summer soul anthem. Estonia’s finest, Urmet K has expertly crafted this dancefloor killer, whilst maintaining sensitivity to the atmospheres and emotion in the original. For the opener of Colour Remixed we have a very special recipe of otherworldly sounds, featuring one of Pete Josef’s most recent and exciting collaborators. In November 2016, Manu Delago (Bjork, Anushka Shankar, Cinematic Orchestra) released the single ‘A Step’ on Tru Thoughts Recordings, featuring Josef. It is a haunting, heart-wrenching duet with hang and voice that seems to have the power to move it’s every listener. Whilst exploring sounds together, the two multi-instrumentalists began work on a new interpretation of ‘Colour’. Josef recorded with Delago in London early in 2017 and came up with a soundscape that immediately whisk’s you away to the Island’s of Indonesia, with the lapping shores, the beating sun, and the hubbub of Island life. The hang ebbs and flows, and combines with warm, expansive synths in one of Pete Josef’s most ethereal productions to date. It sets the scene perfectly for what is to come on Colour Remixed; a journey through artists, genres and personalities, all brought together by the inimitable original music of Pete Josef.

Garden Glory, based in Gothenburg, Sweden, is a designer brand of luxurious alternative garden appliances. These elegant and innovative products are for homeowners who won’t settle for the ordinary. Garden Glory is marketed and distributed by Kolibri & Fjäder. The idea came to them when they moved into our very first house on the Swedish west coast. To see the house was to love it. Charming and inviting, it had a lovely patio and a stunning garden. A wonderful outdoor environment where we could see ourselves surrounded by the warmth of friends and family. But then they spotted it – that dull green garden hose, with its orange connectors and rusty wall bracket that just screamed “Ugly! Ugly! Ugly!”. It pulled me from my daydream. They decided to buy the house on one condition: the garden hose had to find a new home and to set out to buy a new hose.

GARDEN GLORY I searched everywhere for a finer one – with a white tube, perhaps, which I thought would match the house perfectly. And everywhere it was the same sad story: green, green, green and orange, and giant ugly wall mounts. They almost gave up. But just couldn’t let go of the idea of a white garden hose. They really wanted one. So they dug deeper and found – to thier surprise – that stylish garden hoses simply didn’t exist. How could it be that no one made them? Especially since, judging from the garden blogs and forums, there was a huge demand. So they decided to do it theirselves. They was now on a mission: to design luxurious alternative garden appliances. And Garden Glory was born. Why settle for the ordinary? GardenGlory.com

Bradley Callahan, 26, Bushwick's latest fashion maverick and mind behind the delicious label BCALLA. Callahan's creative aesthetic -- a mash-up of skin tight S&M; apparel and futuristic silhouettes whose work has been worn by stars like Azealia Banks and Lady Gaga. To quote the designer, his work is “built on collaborations with other dreamers who refuse to see the world the way it is.” Read the interview below to learn more. What has your journey as a gay fashion designer entailed? My dad painted a picture of me at like four or five years old crying at my desk because I couldn’t get my Barbie’s clothes just right. When I got a bit older I started making comics with my brother where I would design the costumes and he would draw the comics. After graduating from the fashion program at School of the Art Institute of Chicago I started the BCALLA LQQKS PROJECT — a Tumblr-based project where every month I created a unique look to showcase. I collaborated with the photographer Fred Attenborough and every month I chose a different model and a different song from various contributing artists. From there Johnny Sagan picked me up and gave me my first solo show (Lazy Hunters). A bit after that, Contessa Stuto pulled some pieces for Azealia Banks, who then started hiring me to design for her tours. Last season I released a collection titled “Sodomites of Sans Souci” shot by Michael Burk and this season I released “Drawing is Fun” shot by Fred Attenborough with video by Peter Staples. Where did you draw inspiration for your new lookbook? What is your concept? This season was all about drawing. I was really thinking about how every BCALLA piece starts with a line drawing and then is brought into my technicolor wonderland. I’ve been making sharpie shirts for a while so it seemed natural to use that technique for the black and white pieces. Then I collaborated with my friend CJ “shruglife” Crouton who airbrushed the colored pieces for the collection. I found Melanie on Instagram and she looks just like one of my fashion drawings — it was crazy to literally see your drawing in real life right in front of you. As for the location, I’ve been shooting my looks in my stairwell for a few weeks so it just felt right to stage the look book there. I’ve gotten really into Instagram and it’s helped me reach a much wider audience, so I decided to release the new collection there first — as that’s where most people were keeping up with the brand. Of course, I needed to use video with the Instagram presentation to really see the clothing in action and I had Peter Staples help me with that and Adam Bohemond did the makeup. It was a dream team that produced a serious fantasy.

jhon maLcovIch Acclaimed actor John Malkovich has a new stage: fashion design. Since childhood, John has had an interest in clothes and fashion photography. He even studied costuming at university and, to this day, does costume design for theater. He walked the Comme des Garçons runway when no actor would and was featured in campaigns for Prada, Antonio Miro, and Armani, among others. John wrote and directed fashion films for English designer Bella Freud and wrote the “Christian Louboutin” book foreword. He created fabric for Liberty of London, did a design collaboration with Bailey Hats, designed clothes for Pirelli, and partnered with French watchmaker Richard Mille. Now, with his own label, John takes inspiration from his travels and experiences, fine art, and storytelling elements, such as setting and characterization. He sketches designs and patterns, refining every detail, while travelling and during downtime on set. For over 30 years, John has been a passionate fabric collector. With a meditative approach, he often spends several days focusing purely on fabric selection. John believes that fashion should be sincere because it’s rooted in self-expression. Fashion is about putting something together, and defining and transporting yourself. It’s about being bold and discreet at the same time. Above all, it’s about focusing on what you want and not worrying about what others expect you to be. JohnMalkovich.com S AT E L L I T E - MAG. COM

TOdd sanders Bringing together dynamic building and material experimentation with traditional methods of craft, Bergen-based Saunders Architecture has worked on cultural and residential projects right across Norway, as well as England, Denmark, Italy, Sweden and Canada. Led by a strong contemporary design sensibility, the studio believes that architecture must play an important role in creating place, using form, materials and texture to help evoke and shape memory and human interaction. The office operates within existing natural as well as manmade contexts, with examples ranging from an award nominated dramatic viewpoint structure set amidst a rich protected landscape to several new-build houses

Villa S is located in Bergen, Norway. This house is 35m long and 6m wide consisting of two main structures. The lifted element contributes to the illusion that the house is floating in the forest, as well as creating a covered outside space. The first floor contains the main entrance and the storage areas of a bicycle pod, kayak pod and technical pod. A library is situated in the roof of the vertical element, while a large roof terrace can be enjoyed above the horizontal structure.

Jules Julian is a designer and visual artist based in Paris, whose work covers a varied range of styles from graphics to illustration. Julien Studio’s work allies boldness and sensitivity. Using minimal concepts to create stories for clients such as Apple, Cartier,  Cartoon Network, Commons & Sense, Diesel, Google, Nike, Sony Playstation, The New York Times Magazine. Julien's work has been exhibited in Berlin, Paris, Bologna, Los Angeles, Denver, Zurich,New York, London, San Francisco, Valencia, Milan, Montreal, Madrid, San Diego, and Tokyo. Who are you, where are you and what do you do? I am Jules Julien. I live and work in Paris, France (soon in Amsterdam). I make illustrations and graphic art shows. What are you currently working on? I am between two things right now. I have just finished a design pattern for a series of objects for a Shanghai brand (plates, umbrella, posters, notebooks … ). I also finished a print for a group show at Kemistry Gallery in London about 70’s movies, one movie per artist. I chose Quadrophenia. I have also designed a pack of images for the application Granimator, which will be available for the iPad, should be on the iTunes store soon. I am just back from a week in Amsterdam where I’m moving soon. This week I’m working on CD covers for music compilations edited by a cultural french magazine. When did you come out and what was the story? I did not come out early, I was 18 years old. I met guys before but not really lovers. I have waited to be in love with a guy before announcing it to my family. I thought it was easier to say to my family “this is my boyfriend” than “I am gay”, because to be in love is always good news. I am from a little place from the south of France, a farming family where the son works with his father generation after generation. To be gay and not a farmer was the end of this long family story. But my parents, after being a little shocked, were very happy for me, and now they like my actual boyfriend so S AT E L L I T E - MAG. COM

much, he’s called Julien too. We’ve been in love for 9 years. How does being queer affect your work, if at all? I think to be gay gives strength. I think that I am a lucky man to be gay. We live the difference very early in our life. We have to understand and to imagine what is our position in life. We have to live the difference and that is perhaps sometimes hard but very rich and instructive I think. In the same direction our works and style can’t be the same as hetero people because often the creation of a person is little like a mirror of inner side. I have worked a lot for the gay press, and during these times I triedto show a different gay icon. No super muscular men, no gogo dancers or super sexy guys, but something more intimate, sweeter and sometimes with humor too. Because oftentimes, the gay pictures in press are really poorly done, my way was to show another gay reality. In your mind, what should gay pride be and how would you celebrate it? To speak about France, what I know, I think a big party in the Parisian streets isn’t the best way to do it. Often gay pride looks more like a praise for sex, discotheque and fashion… and not something really political. It is a little stupid I think, because we already have sex, discotheque and fashion. It was important before to show us because gays were hiding, but not today. There are a lot of problems for gay people here, but I think they are not the same problem than before and we continue to use the same method. Looking at the Russian gay pride, which finished in blood, or the mentality in some of the new European countries like Poland or in North Africa, I think the situation is very grave. Perhaps gay pride could give a new shape to being more committed?! There is only the ACT UP group here, who puts on a great event each year, very strong. For my part, I don’t know yet what I will do on this day. julesjulienstudio.com XL I X

From producing small office essentials to planning entire concepts for restaurants, resorts and hotels, designer Michael Sodeau is inarguably prolific. Browsing the pages of his portfolio, one will find everything from staplers to streamlined furniture, lighting fixtures to full-blown interiors, website design to complete brand identities. This diversity is what Michael enjoys most about his practice. “One day, I’ll be designing an eraser and the next day, I’m designing an entire house. I never get bored,” he says. Whatever the project, however, his strategy remains fixed: in a nutshell, he aims to produce objects that encourage a true relationship between people and the items they own. He often places himself in the position of the consumer, asking, What would I want if I were using this myself? The London native’s favorite projects are those that offer freedom to explore various avenues of creativity. When given the opportunity, he’s involved in every aspect of the process, approaching each with attentiveness and unshakable vision. From his Hoxton studio, the designer reflects on his vibrant career, what he loves most about working in London and why he’ll never leave the multifaceted city he’s always called home. Tell us about your background and your earliest experiences with design. How did you first venture into the field? My earliest experiences were really in college. I went to Central Saint Martins, and I started in the product design program. The best part for me was the physicality of the work. I used to do a lot of designing in the workshops in the evenings. I’d even work with the technicians, trying to access as much material as possible. We also took a trip to Milan at CSM, and we went to the studios of many amazing Italian designers. That’s when I realized the field of design was so free and much more diverse than I’d anticipated. I noticed that there weren’t any real limitations, and that you could, in fact, do as you pleased. Did you start your studio as soon as you graduated? I set up a company called Inflate when I was still at CMS. We made inflatable products. I finished college in 1994, and we launched the first collection in 1995. I did that for a couple of years, but decided that these types of materials that are really interesting are also quite limiting. I wanted to explore other things and venture into furniture. So I set up my own studio and launched a company. During Inflate, I got caught in this trap of making and not having time to design. When I left, I decided to design as much as possible. I started subcontracting production for small-scale, small batch projects. We looked at various crafts and processes that could be effective and successful—like ceramics, rugs, cabinetry, furniture-making. We did a line of domestic products called Comfortable Living, and that was S AT E L L I T E - MAG. COM

really the kickstart of the studio. Initially, what was your attraction to the world of furniture design? You tend to design things that you need. We started specifically with furniture because we thought, if we need it, other people must need it, as well. It starts there, and then you try to build stories around products. You think about how people are going interact with them, where they’re going to be seen, how other products will associate with them. That’s how it evolves. One of the concepts I explored in school was how people related to objects in personal ways. How can an object can have a character? When I say character, think about how you might know a car is your car because of the strange noise it makes when it starts, or the fact that you have to press the gas twice before the engine turns. You get to know things by the ways in which they work, the sounds they make, et cetera. The ability of an object to take on a character is very interesting to me. You were born in London, and you’ve spent your life here. What do you love about it, and how has it influenced your work as a designer? London is a place full of very different cultures and various backgrounds. It’s a true melting pot. To that end, the city tends to be much more of an eclectic mix, even in terms of the design world. Having access to such a mix of cultures here in London, as well as traveling, has influenced me in different ways. Actually, I feel slightly less British and slightly more European in a way—experiencing such diversity in one city is incredible. And, obviously, there are always so many things to do here. The convenience of art is amazing, and makes it a great place to be as a designer. I’m not sure that I’d ever want to live anywhere else, really. In your studio, you cover graphic design, interiors and even conceptual web design. How do you bring all of these things together? It probably comes from the desire to control everything. If we’re on a project, we want to deliver everything that we feel could be relevant to the client. For example, on interior projects if we’re given the opportunity, we’ll design every piece of furniture. We just did one recently where we even designed the floor tiles. If we’d had more time, we’d do the door handles, as well. If it’s a restaurant, we’ll speak to the chef to work on graphics for the menus and wine lists. We’ll do cutlery, bowls, plates, glasses. It’s the idea of controlling the whole presentation. MichaSlsodeau.com Othr.com XL I X

A profile of architect Peter Marino’s extensive, collaborative process of commissioning art for luxury brand spaces and private clients worldwide. Dubbed 'The Leather Daddy of Luxury' by New York Magazine, Peter Marino is the premier architect of luxury brand spaces worldwide, including for Chanel, Dior, and Louis Vuitton, in cities including Los Angeles, New York, London, Paris, Munich, Singapore and Tokyo. This is the first book to look at the collaborative process by which Marino has commissioned site-specific works for luxury retail spaces from artists including Richard Deacon, Vik Muniz, Vanessa Beecroft, James Turrell, Not Vital, and Jean-Michel Othoniel. Marino’s commissions explore the relationship between art and architecture. The process of these collaborations is documented here through personal anecdotes, notes, diaristic photographs and sketches, culminating in beautifully photographed images of the final work in situ. Each chapter is dedicated to a single collaboration, following it chronologically through its developmental journey, with Marino giving his perspective on unifying themes, and the cross-pollination of the art and architecture. Marino provides a narrative voice and vision – a knowledgeable guide to the creative world he inhabits. Phaidon.com p .

Warhol's Factory as seen through the lens of a young Shore, providing an insider view of this extraordinary moment and place Stephen Shore was 17 years old when he began hanging out at The Factory - Andy Warhol's legendary studio in Manhattan. Between 1965 and 1967, Shore spent nearly every day there, taking pictures of its diverse cast of characters, from musicians to actors, artists to writers, and including Edie Sedgwick, Lou Reed, and Nico - not to mention Warhol himself. This book presents a personal selection of photographs from Shore’s collection, providing an insider's view of this extraordinary moment and place, as seen through the eyes of one of photography's most beloved practitioners. Stephen Shore is one of the most influential photographers working today. He was the first living photographer to have a solo exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, in 1971. Shore has been director of the photography program at Bard College, Annandale-on-Hudson, New York, since 1982. Phaidon.com
