Murmuration (Landscape), the installation formed by 10.000 porcelain birds

Giulia Guido · 3 years ago · Art

Last week at the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne, it was the opening of the exhibition “Terracotta Warriors” by the Chinese artist Cai Guo-Qiang, which features terracotta sculptures representing the ancient Chinese warriors of Emperor Qin Shi Huangdi, considered the first Chinese emperor.

Within this exhibition, however, you will not only see soldiers, but Cai Guo-Qiang has thought of surprising all viewers with Murmuration (Landscape), an immersive installation that occupies the space of an entire room.

The work consists of 10,000 porcelain birds that have been hung from the ceiling with nylon threads and seem to fly over the heads of visitors. Seen from the outside, the shape of the installation seems to be that of a three-dimensional landscape and for this reason, it is natural to observe and live it in respectful silence, as if one were entering a sacred place.

The exhibition will be open until 13 October 2019.

Clarks Originals x Them Skates, the collaboration we wanted

Clarks Originals x Them Skates, the collaboration we wanted

Andrea Tuzio · 4 days ago · Style

If you have at least once in your life happened to put a pair of inline skates on your feet, then you can understand my excitement to learn the news that, one two of my favorite brands and closely related to this world, Clarks Originals, has announced its latest collaboration with Them Skates

The collaboration includes two iconic Clarks Originals silhouettes, Wallabee Boot and Wallabee Cup Mule, reimagined in terms of materials and coloration; and two pairs of the skating brand’s skates, THEM 80s, with 80 mm wheelbase, and THEM 909s, with 58 mm wheels.

“The Wallabee runs deep in inline skating shoe culture. Just like in hip hop culture in the late nineties, the Wallabee was a staple shoe for the before and after skate lifestyle. Run it back to 1996 and you would see the Wallabee on many skaters and brand advertisements. Naturally, a collaboration with Clark’s Originals and Them Skates was inevitable”, these are the words of Jon Julio, founder of Them Skates.

This collaboration brings together the world of 90s skating and Wallabee’s role in street culture.

L’intera collezione Clarks Originals x Them Skates può essere preordinata già oggi esclusivamente online su www.themgoods.com e, a partire dal 4 novembre, anche su SSENSE.

Post Malone and Moose Knuckles prepare us for winter

Post Malone and Moose Knuckles prepare us for winter

Andrea Tuzio · 3 days ago · Style

Canadian brand Moose Knuckles has launched a special capsule collection, consisting of 10 no-gender items, in collaboration with one of contemporary music’s strongest superstars, Post Malone.
The collection seamlessly blends the extraordinary creativity of Post Malone and the disruptive spirit of Moose Knuckles.

“This collaboration with Moose Knuckles was natural from the beginning. The collection is about celebration and doing things your own way based on your instincts. I’m really proud of what we’ve created and I hope you all love it as much as we do”, these are the words with which the singer originally from Syracuse, New York, shared about the collaboration.

The campaign was shot in Utah Nature Park on a winter night earlier this year, and is a luxury take on functional cold-weather clothing. 

“Moose Knuckles’ collaboration with Post Malone was inspired by the fearless spirit we all know and love about him. He is a master of collaboration in music and the same can be said for fashion. He is a true visionary and was very involved in every step of the process. We shot everything with a harsh flash in the dark woods, and it was the perfect environment. He really captured the irreverent, sassy rock star soul that he is”, said Moose Knuckles Design Vice President Tu Ly.

The brand decided to make the collection available for adults and children, including a kids category, inspired by the son of Bobby Greenleaf, Post Malone’s close friend and Creative Director. 

“We chose to work with talents who share our same core values. Moose Knuckles x Post Malone is the most authentic form of an anti-luxury collection. We never took ourselves too seriously and when we met Post, our energies immediately connected”, Dominique Lagleva, Global Marketing Vice President of Moose Knuckles.

The Moose Knuckles X Post Malone collection is already available at mooseknucklescanada.com and at select retailers.

Kid Cudi, Virgil Abloh and “Entergalactic”

Kid Cudi, Virgil Abloh and “Entergalactic”

Andrea Tuzio · 3 days ago · Style

“Entegalactic”, this is the title of the Netflix original animated special that can be seen starting today on the American streaming platform. 

Initially conceived as an animated TV series, this special created by Scott Ramon Seguro Mescudi aka Kid Cudi, tells the story of Jabari – voiced by Mescudi himself – a charming artist on the threshold of success who, after a chance meeting with his photographer neighbor, Meadow, will be faced with the choice of whether or not to let love into his life.

Also available today on Spotify is the self-titled album, made by Kid Cudi and heard about since 2019, in which the soundtrack of the special is contained.

What makes the project even more fascinating is to discover that the costume design within the special was created by the late Virgil Abloh. In fact, it is no coincidence that “Entegalactic” is being released today, Sept. 30, the 42nd birthday of the designer and creative who passed away prematurely on Nov. 28 last year.

When it came to defining the fashion details of the show, Cudi made sure that each character wore something different in every single espisode. Executive producer Kenya Barris told how they made sure each character stayed true to contemporary trends and aesthetics.

Cudi, in an interview in conjunction with the series on Netflix’s YouTube channel, spoke of his friend Virgil’s untold legacy and how he consistently represents a decisive inspiration, as well as reiterating how integral Abloh’s work for the series was to the story itself.

Below you can see the interview Kid Cudi gave on the occasion of the release of “Entegalactic”
