CURATE FASHION!

Curating…A VORTEX

The word “Curating” might be perceived today as a Fashionable concept. To “curate” means to take care of, mostly of an object, or an idea, a vision or a dream. From a tangible object, a coat, a shoe, or a painting, we can transform the idea of curating to a never forgetting experience; space, light, sound, are adding dimensions in witch the viewer will be attracted by the object in order to reflect its meaning, its significance in the history of mankind, its context or influence in the way we perceive creative phenomenon’s and explosions of creativity and craft.

Today “Time” has a very different meaning than a few decades, even years ago; we are living “time” as a “Vortex” bringing together the “past “ and “future”. Today we are living simultaneously in the virtual and in the humanised world; The Vortex bring both experiences together in a new way of thinking, speaking, dreaming, working, curating.

If we think of “curating” an object we immediately think about “Space”. First the Museum space as the most natural environment for a precious object, discovered in the archives of a famous museum. The object, of a great historical value, cannot be exposed to heavy light, needs certain humidity, and cannot be touched. We have regulations made by ICOM, the International Counsel of Museums. (ICOM’s standards and guidelines supply models to museum professionals in order to facilitate the implementation of their good practices in terms of objects acquisition, personnel, conservation of art objects and museum specialism. These standards and guidelines are elaborated by ICOM’s International Committee experts and are recognised by the Executive Council.)

ROK HWANG LVMH SPECIAL PRIZE

Congratulations Rok! you are a great designer! Linda

Rokh is founded by Rok Hwang. Before establishing his own aesthetic ethos in 2017; Rok was R-T-W designer for eminent fashion house, Céline, under Phoebe Philo.

Rokh garments, designed with timeless in mind and crafted to last through each season, are familiar yet unique renditions of classic aesthetic. Pieces accent an existing wardrobe with a raw attitude and sensual detailing, defined by the labels unique, yet familiar elegance. rokh reflects the notion that all pieces should be structured, timeless and above all, adaptable.

Rokh philosophy is to give the image new value. rokh harnesses the image as a palimpsest, each layer is inscribed upon the previous, sometimes erased, sometimes affirmed. That which is affirmed grows stronger, that which fails falls away. Trivial trends are erased in favour of visuals that speak co the genuine ways youth expresses itself. Youth forms its own image, which is where rokh direct our gaze.

THE SPOTLIGHT

Kwaidan Editions’ Violent Push-and-Pull

This month, our Spotlight shines on a design duo who bring experience from Céline, Balenciaga and Rick Owens to their new luxury womenswear label.

 

LONDON, United Kingdom — Kwaidan Editions is named after a 1965 Japanese horror film, an association that might sound strange for a luxury womenswear label. But for co-founder Léa Dickely, it makes perfect sense. The movie, whose title translates as “ghost stories” is, she says, “very beautiful [and] a bit scary… Quiet but powerful.”

Dickely and co-founder Hung La, who launched the label last year, boast two decades of design experience between them, including stints at Céline and Balenciaga (La) and Alexander McQueen and Rick Owens (Dickely). The pair, who are partners in both business and life, met while studying at the Royal Academy of Arts in Antwerp.

SUPERFLEX – TATE MODERN!

Danish design collective Superflex has filled the Tate Modern‘s Turbine Hall with a snaking framework of three-seater swings, which it hopes will encourage social interaction between visitors.

The One Two Three Swing! installation features a bright orange framework that weaves throughout the huge Turbine Hall, and continues to the outside of the building.

The Danish collective, founded in 1993 by Jakob Fenger, Bjørnstjerne Christiansen and Rasmus Nielsen, hopes that the three-seater swings will instigate group activity and demonstrate the positives of working in collaboration.

“The work invites audiences to combat social apathy through collaborative action, joining together on the count of three,” said the Tate.

Running until 2 April 2018, One Two Three Swing! is the third in a series of annual Hyundai-commissioned artworks that have occupied the Turbine Hall’s vast space – but it is the first installation to break beyond the gallery walls.
