WHAT IS THE CONCEPT?

The first edition of State of Fashion opens on 1 June 2018 under the title Searching for the New Luxury, curated by José Teunissen

Searching for the New Luxury explores new definitions of luxury in response to urgent environmental and social issues: less waste and pollution, more equality, welfare and inclusiveness. It explores new (bio)technologies, digital platforms and creative processes that fundamentally rethink traditional notions of luxury and, in so doing, contribute to a sustainable future for the industry.

state of fashion 2018 | searching for the new luxury collects current groundbreaking research and initiates experimental interdisciplinary collaborations that will start in 2018 and continue thereafter. The opening week is from 1 – 10 June 2018. The search for the ‘new luxury’ starts now. Join us!

HOMELESS

A TEXT WRITTEN FOR VISION MAGAZINE CHINA – www.voidvision.com (under construction)

ETYMOLOGY = HOME & LESS – IN FRENCH WE SAY UN SANS-ABRI WHAT MEANS WITHOUT SHELTER.

HOME

“Home” means a solid shelter, a strong defence to the outside dangerous world, and a retreat from the hustle and bustle of the street. We are able to relax at home and find our sense of being, enjoying the so-called private life. “Privacy” means what we don’t want to expose, which includes physical part like our wrinkles and naked body as well as the psychological part like our sadness, fear, joy, solitude, companionship or intimacy. We can have a leisure time at

home, starting a refreshing conversation with our partners or friends. Besides, it is in our own house that we keep our precious

BoF Exclusive | Does Azzedine Alaïa have the antidote to a relentless fashion system?

By guest contributor July 2011 14,23

Monsieur Alaïa — fashion today, what is it like?

I can only speak for myself, but for a long time now the system of fashion has had nothing to do with our time — it doesn’t suit our time at all. The world is changing rapidly. We see the proof of change every day in the news. Young people want change in this industry, too, yet we continue, just like in the 19th century, to do défilés. There is no need – no interest, really. We could do fewer collections and obtain the same results. We don’t lose any money if we do less.

DRAWING THE NUDE

Drawing the Nude

Drawing the nude is like drawing a letter or a symbol. You look at lines, shadows, and proportions; you see volumes, absences, gaps or depths. You forget the body and slowly, slowly you are in a very special state of mind. The lines are soft in the beginning but the more you gaze the more you draw highlights; your fingers touch the paper, you have to feel the charcoal, you need to get your hands dirty and work into the subject.
