  • Wearable Art For Your Feet by Japanese Shoe Designer Tetsuya Uenobe

    Back in my early club days one of my most coveted pair of shoes was a pair of Tokio Kumagai black suede pumps with funny, little whiskers jutting out all over.At a time when Japanese designers like Rei Kawakubo for Comme des Garcons and Yohji Yamamoto were the must-have uniform for the downtown art set, Tokio Kumagai designs– particularly the shoes– were right in step. Often extraordinary and whimsical, the shoes shared the Japanese minimalist fashion aesthetic of the time that still looks modern. The most iconic being most a pair of mouse flats long before Marc Jacobs turned a rodent into a chic shoe.>> SHOP FOR CUTE FLATSUnfortunately Kumagai passed away at an early age and there really have not been that many designers to fill his shoes when it comes to slightly wacky, yet very wearable art for your feet, that happen to have an animal influence.Enter Tetsuya Uenobe.Uenobe takes it up a notch with pieces of art that you happen to be able to wear. I was able to interview the designer and ask a few questions about his craft.

  • Prettypretty Chairs are pretty wiggy

    Hair chairs for your kookiest indulgences. If you have more wigs than Dolly Parton has gone through in a lifetime, you might just start to want to look at them as potential art rather than pile of beauty roadkill.I love to look at the obvious and see it in so many different and unique ways that nothing is ever expected, whether it be art or the way are inspired by the ordinary to make to extraordinary.Furniture designer Dejana Kabiljo of the Viennese design brand, Kabiljo Inc. sees and designs “objects for all of us with little fetishes, bad habits and compulsive actions.” The materials are carefully researched and subdued to a series of experimental processes until they fit into place.In this case, PrettyPretty experimental stools, poufs and chairs that are like pretty heads to sit and explore.READ: Dressed Chairs, fashion as furniture

  • The Joy of Fashion: Good Fun, and Art in the Mix

    “Fashion’s Night Out- Downtown fashion and art scene… Last night was Vogue’s “Fashion’s Night Out,” a city-wide shopping event with hundreds of shops staying open til 11pm, providing music & cocktails to not only get customers motivated to shop, but to also remind them of the joy of fashion itself. And with the state of today’s economy, it was a rather refreshing and well-planned initiative to get people excited.I didn’t personally see many cash registers buzzing, but what I did love was the communal air it gave the city of New York, where the streets were filled with well suited crowds of people, all out for a good time and a good cause.After spending the early morning & afternoon engulfed in the world of fashion with Mercedes Benz Fashion Week at Bryant Park,”

  • Tinko’s Take: Dagger in Dubai

    Glamour, mysticism, and the power of queens…Laurence- the dagger travels through space and time, changes owners, all sorts of women hold it and are empowered by it in different ways.Dagger, series of pictures whose inspiration is very diverse, from the comic book mysticism of Indiana Jones to the glamour of perfume advertising, to the powerful pictures of queens makes its way to Dubai.TaroudanntIt started when I found a beautiful object in a souk in Taroudannt, Morocco. Like a beautiful girl wearing rags and living in the street, the bottle was a beautiful object containing a bad perfume and destined to be sold among dust covered batteries and soap bars in a dimly lit shop.The idea came to sublimate the object which had a potential for beauty and to Annaempower the women who held it. By holding the dagger, the women are elevated, just as the dagger is, creating images which are strong and filled with untold stories.
