Marc Jacobs reissues Grunge collection Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love set on fire in ’92

Twenty-five years ago, Marc Jacobs was designing the historic Grunge collection for Perry Ellis’ SS93 collection. Historic because starter of a big trend in the fashion industry, that today, is given for granted. Jacobs dressed Carla Bruni, Naomi Campbell, Tyra Banks, Kate Moss and many others among the most iconic super models of the 90s, in buttoned up floral dresses, stripy t-shirts and silk shirts resembling the tartan shirts characteristic of that period. A look belonging to the culture of the West Coast of the United States, where in that period, the Grunge music and style launched by Nirvana was spreading.

It was one of the first times that a look from the street was brought on high fashion runways (like Alexander McQueen will start doing soon), making Marc Jacobs one of the pioneers of the streetwear phenomenon.

The collection received many critiques. The New York Times defined it as a collection that “mixes everything up. . . A typical outfit looks as if it were put together with the eyes closed in a very dark room.”. “Grunge is anathema to fashion” said Cathy Horyn, “and for a major Seventh Avenue fashion house to put out that kind of statement at that kind of price point is ridiculous. Grunge is about not making a statement, which is why it’s crazy for it to become a fashion statement.”, and also, “Grunge: 1992–1993, R.I.P. . . . For many, Marc Jacobs’s grunge fashion collection was the final shove”, as New York Magazine commented.

And it was the final shove. The collection never went into production, Jacobs sent some samples to Kurt Cobain and Courtuney Love, that later declared in an interview with WWD:  “We burned it. We were punkers – we didn’t like that kind of thing”.

Marc Jacobs was fired a few weeks after the discussed show but won the CFDA Womenswear Designer of the Year and realized what remains one of his favorite collections:

“it was the first time I was unwavering in my determination to see my vision come to life on the runway without creative compromise” – Marc Jacobs

The collection remains among the most iconic of the designer, who decided to give it a second chance in his Resort 2019 ‘Marc Jacobs Redux’, available online from this month. The collection was entirely reproduced with the original materials and accessories (including Dr Martens boots) and proposed again with a casting that has little to envy to the original one. Gigi Hadid, Slick Woods and Binx Walton are protagonists of the lookbook shot by Juergen Teller, frequent collaborator od the brand.

Female portraits by Marat Safin

Female portraits by Marat Safin

Giulia Guido · 3 days ago · Photography

Women are the protagonists of the shots by Russian self-taught photographer Marat Safin. Lonely women, women in the house, in the kitchen or lying on the bed, women immersed in nature, free among the high grass, women looking in the car or immortalized in spontaneous poses. 

Marat’s female portraits convey a sense of calm, intimacy. 

The warm light that we find in all her shots immediately gives the family atmosphere, giving us an air of home, of familiarity. 

In our gallery you can find a selection of her shots, to find out more go to the Marat Safin’s Instagram profile

The world’s best nature photography of 2021

The world’s best nature photography of 2021

Tommaso Berra · 3 days ago · Photography

After the ranking of the best astronomical and microscope photographs of 2021, these days the best wildlife photos of the last year have also been awarded. The Wildlife Photographer of the Year is a competition organized by the Natural History Museum in London, now in its 57th edition.
There are many aspects that make extraordinary the 100 photos in competition, taken by professional photographers or amateurs and selected from 50 thousand proposals. On the one hand, the technique used and the patience in waiting to take the perfect shot, unrepeatable in many cases. On the other hand, the unusual point of view, which brings viewers closer to unusual natural events or animals that are difficult to approach, such as the shot of the spider as big as a human hand or the “selfie” taken by a grizzly bear in front of the carcass of a deer in the United States.

The Wildlife Photographer of the Year contest is divided into 19 categories, from which the two winners have been announced. Laurent Ballesta, who specializes in aquatic photography, won the Adult Grand Title Winner with an image capturing some camouflaged groupers in French Polynesia emerging from a cloud of eggs and sperm. It took the French photographer five years of night diving to capture this moment, which occurs only during the July full moon period.
The other winner of the wildlife photo contest was Vidyun R. Hebbar, just ten years old, who was awarded the Young Wildlife Photographer of the Year for his image of a spider wrapped in its web, taken in Bangalore, India.

Erotic and sexy photography by Joshua Rhodes

Erotic and sexy photography by Joshua Rhodes

Buddy · 3 days ago · Photography

Joshua Rhodes is a Californian photographer present on Instagram with the accounts @fuzzyaxolotl and @fuzzyanalog.

His images are charged with solar eroticism: pin-up style models, portrayed with irony and sensuality, with a vintage style that seems to echo the editorial taste of Playboy and a certain 70s erotic cinema.

The statuesque bodies of blonde models shine in the sun on perfect beaches, emerge from the water of the ocean or crystalline pools.

Natural shots, delicate and glossy lights.

Check out a selection of his shots here, follow him on Instagram and on his personal website.
