The last Kenzo campaign looks like it came out of a Rousseau painting

The last Kenzo campaign looks like it came out of a Rousseau painting

Collater.al Contributors · 6 years ago · Art, Style

With an history of over forty years on the shoulders, Kenzo’s arty inspirations are no big news to our eyes. After the founder Kenzo Takada’s retirement in 1999 to pursue a personal artistic path, the duo Humberto Leon and Carol Lim (responsible of the unmissable tiger design we’ve seen on Beyonce, Spike Jonze and Lorde’s sweatshirts), in chief from 2012, has continued the conduct of the master, giving the brand a futuristic direction that yet remains faithful to the founder’s archive and inspirations.

On the occasion of Fall/Winter collection’s launch, presented in Paris in early March, they presented their reinterpretation of famous Henri Rousseau’s painting: Le Rêve. The painting, one of Takada’s favorites, was already reproduced in the maison’s boutique during the early 80s. this time, it also takes on the third dimension under Thomas Traum’s lenses in a film that brings to life the landscape of the renowned painting. The two lead characters hear the jungle’s call while the sun is rising and come together under an uprising moon in a dreamy looking narrative.

Main traits of the collection are the oversized knits in bright tones and the alternating patterns: from colorful stripes to prints evoking the painting’s aesthetic, to primitive drawings appearing on trousers and sweaters. Skirts with asymmetric voulants, coats with furry wrists and cozy turtlenecks, the key pieces are still the accessories showing Rousseau’s motifs: backpack, cap and bumbag finished in ram’s fur. One of the painter’s dreams was to see his painting rendered on clothing and, finally, his dream came true thanks to maison Kenzo. Among Le Rêve’s flora and fauna we can also glimpse a new design for the logo. Is this an anticipation of a rebranding or simply a spin off? Stay Tuned.

Short video for Breakfast – i NEED, and what do you need to feel suffocated?

Short video for Breakfast – i NEED, and what do you need to feel suffocated?

Giulia Guido · 6 years ago · Art

For today I propose a video that makes you think and, above all, that represents all of us, no one excluded. Magali García, illustrator and animator from Madrid, with the animated short film i NEED, pushes us into an increasingly frenetic vortex.

Think of it this way, the protagonist of this video is us, yes, even you who believe you have no addiction, to be fully satisfied with your life. We follow, therefore, this girl who is constantly looking for something, a bed, a house, a car, a partner, a friend. In a perpetual state of dissatisfaction, as soon as she gets something she wants another one.

Perhaps the myriad of objects and possibilities that surround us make it difficult to choose one and be fully happy with the decision. Maybe our life, always moving and always different, needs different things.

The Artist is Present, the art of copying honoured by Gucci and Cattelan

The Artist is Present, the art of copying honoured by Gucci and Cattelan

Giulia Guido · 6 years ago · Art

The Artist is Present exhibition opened yesterday in Shanghai and it’s the result of a collaboration between Gucci and Maurizio Cattelan to pay homage to the art of copying. After all, who better than the Maison famous for its kitsch choices and for appropriating both sacred and profane images, and the Italian artist used to quoting works of classical art but also of pop culture to create an entire exhibition that celebrates the copy.

The title chosen already takes up that of the famous Marina Abramovic’s performance at MoMA in 2010, which has also become the protagonist of the murals created to sponsor the Shanghai exhibition.

The exhibition’s catalog, The New Work Times, is a copy of the well-known The New York Times. This too, curated by Cattelan, will contain stories and essays, daily news and advertisements, scattered with facts and curiosities.

Finally, the exhibition itself consists of a series of works by more than 30 artists selected by the Italian artist and Gucci’s creative director, Alessandro Michele. The aim is to explore the age in which we live, in which everything is reproduced and the sacred principles of art in the modern era have fallen: originality, intention, expression. The exhibition aims to demonstrate how reproduction can be considered a product of original art and how copies help to preserve the originals over time.

The exhibition will remain open at the Yuz Museum in Shanghai until December 16.

The teaser of the Aladdin remake has been released, in cinemas in 2019

The teaser of the Aladdin remake has been released, in cinemas in 2019

Giulia Guido · 6 years ago · Art

Disney does not stop surprising us and a few hours ago released the teaser of the new Aladdin.

By now the remakes have become a category to all intents and purposes that, in addition to making us relive the stories we loved as children, have an absolute certainty of success, because let’s face it, who would not return to the cinema to review the adventures of Aladdin, Jasmin and Jafar, especially knowing that there could be the Genius of the most sympathetic lamp in history? Yes, the character dubbed by Robin Williams in the cartoon this time is Will Smith.

Next to him, in the role of the protagonist Mena Massoud, as Jasmin the beautiful Naomi Scott and, finally, in the role of the perfidious Jafar there will be Marwan Kenzari. Director Guy Ritchie will tackle the adaptation of the Disney classic from behind the camera.

The teaser takes us back to the Cave of Wonders and, the tiger’s head at the entrance makes all the things clear:

“Only one may enter here”.

The film will be released in American cinemas on 24 May 2019.
