Who wants some art and fashion!?
This capsule collection by NOIR NOIR is kinda blowing everyone’s lid right now. It’s a fusion between photography and fashion, pattern and colour, cool and fucking awesome. In a world where there’s TONS of competition in every single industry, differentiation is key to survive, and in this case, I bet NOIR NOIR is doing pretty well.
Also, have you noticed that the word of the year is – aside from selfie – “capsule”?, I kinda love it and we will definitely see more of this small – capsule – collections popping up everywhere, you just wait!

This ad campaign for Harajuku clothing store Laforet titled Be Noisy is as quirky and weird as the world-famous style this district is known for. Directed by Rikako Nagashima, these looks merge all-time favourites such as florals and art – the art being those crazy installation-like wires coming out of the model’s mouth. Only in Japan.
You should definitely check out the short videos below to see the whole thing happening. I mean, when was the last time you saw someone spitting flowers and wires out of their mouth all while looking super kawaii? (Yes, I’m totally pulling my Gwen-Stefani-2004-Hollabackgirl lingo in here, which is as Harajuku as I’ll ever be).

Intergalactic planetary awesomeness. That’s what artist and designer Maiko Takeda is all about. Her new collection titled ‘Atmospheric Reentry’, is a futuristic take on runway essentials. The minimal construction of the garments, combined with the multifaceted accessories, create an extremely powerful look that is nothing but pure art.
I wonder if some crazy fashionista is already wearing something similar on the streets of New York or London, ’cause those are breeding grounds for any eccentric looks.
Visit Maiko Takeda‘s site to see her other collections. It’s so inspiring to see her work and to see how she executes each look with Japanese precision.

The goddess of MoMa and mother of artsy-realness, Tilda Swinton, has shot an incredible editorial for W Magazine’s current issue titled ‘Modern Beauty’. I cannot think of a better person for this photo shoot other than Tilda herself (yeah, Tilda and I are on a first name basis).
As an added bonus, here’s the interview W magazine had with this iconic woman. Seriously, some people’s creativity seems to come from outerly worlds.
Oh. My. Ga. I can’t. I am head over heels for these portraits by London-based Art Director and Photographer Madame Peripetie. The styling in this series titled BOO design | portraits is beautifully done. It’s very simple yet stunning. And the whole metallic/bug vibe is very, very trendy (in an almost creepy way).
Today I prepared a Fashion and Art post (which will be published later this month) for Meg Biram that talks about this year’s trends – patterns, textiles, and metallic colours in all their glory. I am super excited to see what kind of crazy concepts (influenced by these trends) will be developed for art, design, interiors and decor. Are you going to be able to handle all the craziness?
