The daily and therapeutic posters by Elijah Jambalaya

The daily and therapeutic posters by Elijah Jambalaya

Collater.al Contributors · 2 weeks ago · Art

Form 1st January 2020 Elijah Jambalaya, famous on Instagram as @toastedbyeli, started an extraordinary art-therapeutic project. His rule is only one: publish one poster a day. 
Putting it this way may seem like a challenge all too simple, but only after carefully studying his profile can you understand that his work is much more complicated than expected.

Publishing one poster a day, in fact, seems to be a pretext for Elijah to analyze and get to know himself, improve his lifestyle and narrate his therapeutic path.
Choose to publish the result of his work on himself is also a solidarity decision who finds consent from those who, like him, live difficult moments.

His posters are connected by a fil rouge even if they deal with a different subject every day. His messages encourage everyone to analyze themselves, see the positive side of life, be honest with their own emotions, make peace with their own fears, recognize change and accept it as the only condition for growth.

Even if we don’t know Elijah’s face we know many things about him thanks to what he shares through his art. His works are little pills of wisdom: they make us face every moment with positivity and remind us how important wellness is in everyday life.

His style is in contrast to his type of artistic intervention. Elijah Jambalaya in fact mixes grunge and pop aesthetics and his images take up the style of the two-dimensional and neon stickers released by Microsoft, the clip art.
The result is an original mix of artistic and cultural references from the 90s, halfway between modern and contemporary.

Today his posters are more than 300. Take a look at a selection here, visit his Instagram profile and follow him in his daily story.

“Teaser”, the Givenchy capsule collection

Andrea Tuzio · 3 days ago · Style

As of June 16th, Matthew M. Williams began his work as Givenchy‘s new creative director, replacing Clare Waight Keller who had held the position for three years.

Six months later, the founder of 1017 ALYX 9SM, presents the capsule collection “Teaser”, a selection from Givenchy’s Spring/Summer 2021 ready-to-wear collection, which includes both male and female looks with an innovative and refined cut.

Among the most important items in the women’s collection are tailored outerwear, jeans characterized by a craquelure pattern, long fitted blazers and high-waisted pants.

While for the man we find squared shirts that recall aesthetic elements typical of workwear, a single-breasted jacket embellished with 4G embroidery and an oversize parka. 

Obviously, there is no lack of accessories: the It bag, the Lock ankle boot, the GIV 1 men’s sneaker and the baseball cap adorned with a pair of horns that is the distinctive feature of this collection.

The Givenchy “Teaser” ready-to-wear capsule collection Spring/Summer 2021 will be presented exclusively at seven Ginvechy boutiques worldwide and on the French fashion house’s website from 1st to 22nd December 2020.

6 – MONCLER 1017 ALYX 9SM, a look to the future

6 – MONCLER 1017 ALYX 9SM, a look to the future

Andrea Tuzio · 2 days ago · Style

Functionality and elegant design combined with an urban aesthetic, a perfect mixture of technology and craftsmanship, between industrial and artisan. These are the main features of Matthew M. Williams‘ collection 6 – MONCLER 1017 ALYX 9SM, as part of the Moncler Genius project.

The desire of the Italian fashion house and the Chicago-born designer was to combine the souls of the two brands to create a collection that looked to the future but remained faithful to their legacy.

Moncler’s outdoor character meets the silhouettes of 1017 ALYX 9SM characterized by laser-cut details, seamless ultrasonic welding, taped tailoring shapes and a minimalist color palette. 

Deepening the research on garment dyeing and applying it to feathers, working on neutral colors combined with black and making natural fabrics technical, Williams has created a collection that plays with both overlapping and the concepts of shiny and matt and that includes parkas, cropped jackets, trench coats with zipper, but also elegant pants and leggings. The tights, together with the tops, are made of Econyl®, regenerated nylon derived from the ocean and land-based waste.

To complete a completely new collection of technical outerwear, we find the unmistakable hardware and the iconic rubber boots.

The collection 6 – MONCLER 1017 ALYX 9SM will be available from December 3rd.

The collection FW20/21 Fred Perry x Akane Utsunomiya

The collection FW20/21 Fred Perry x Akane Utsunomiya

Andrea Tuzio · 1 day ago · Style

Fred Perry presents its third collaboration with Japanese designer Akane Hasui who has been working with the brand she founded in Tokyo for 10 years now.
The two companies have combined their aesthetics and their DNA for the FW20/21 collection characterized by a play of patterns, prints, proportions and textures that rework the classic Fred Perry items thanks to a lively color palette, bold and combined with black, which represents the color par excellence of subcultures of which Fred Perry has often been, and still is, an aesthetic expression.

The design of the Polo Shirt is completely characterized by the color block jersey and is finished with chenille ribs; the ribbed top in fact distinguishes the collections of Akane Utsunomiya and defines the aesthetics.

There is the Argyle, the pattern that more than any other represents the British tradition, which dominates the knitwear; the tennis skirt is presented with a ribbed waist belt and comfortable asymmetrical pleats; the track jacket instead is characterized by a funnel neck and a pocket on the sleeve that reflects the aesthetic and stylistic canons of the Japanese brand.

Through the shots of photographer Ittetsu Matsuoka, we get even closer to the world of Akane because they explore the Komazawa Olympic Park, the sports facility in Tokyo where the Japanese designer grew up.

The FW20/21 Fred Perry x Akane Utsunomiya collection is already available on Fred Perry’s website.
