Soft Tissue, a project born from the collaboration between photographer Prue Stent and artist Honey Long, explores female sensuality through the eyes of those who ignore stereotypes.
In fact, always fascinated by the meaning of gender identity, the creative duo wanted to focus the lens on body portions generally not considered sensual. Skin, hair, veins and defects become the protagonists of shot between the grotesque and the dreamlike.
Everything is focused on the detail that disturbs, on textures and details that almost resemble the beauty of unexplored landscapes.
The aim of the project is to encourage the viewer not to become a slave of a single point of view, rather than to create their own associating different ideas with shapes that have now become descriptive.
It is impossible to define Juergen Teller as a simple fashion photographer. With his work and his unique and inimitable aesthetics, the German photographer investigates the social constructions that concern beauty and everyday life through his direct and unfiltered style that leads to irony, humor and provocation. His subjects are all treated in the same way regardless of who they are, the cut of his shots is democratic, instinctive and direct thanks to which he has become an icon in the world of artistic and fashion photography. He has always preferred the rough sincerity of the photos that came out of the roll as they were, always true to himself, he has never changed his style even when he switched to digital. He has worked for Burberry, Celine, Marc Jacobs, his photographs have ended up on the covers of Face, i-D and Vogue and he has done covers for Björk and Morrisey.
This time around, Teller becomes a double star for JW Anderson’s SS22 lookbook.
A real calendar where, among the models wearing the prêt-à-porter creations of the British designer surrounded by tires that serve as a set, the German photographer chooses to become part of the project by immortalizing himself in black briefs and a camera around his neck in pin-up poses.
Teller overturns the status quo, overturning, as usual, the exasperated seriousness of the fashion world to play with it and make fun of it. This is the umpteenth proof by a legend of contemporary photography, that he always manages to unsettle the users and rewrite obsolete rules, only to overturn everything again immediately afterwards.

A few weeks ago, on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the Shadow 6000, the famous Saucony Originals silhouette, street artist EricsOne painted a gigantic mural that continues to dominate Corso Garibaldi. The celebrations did not end with the creation of the artwork, however, as a few evenings later the brand new Carlo al Naviglio restaurant opened its doors to friends of Saucony for an exclusive party where EricsOne’s work was officially presented to the public with a video projected on the mega screens positioned in the location’s courtyard.
The guests had the chance to see many Saucony Originals models displayed like works of art in a gallery, positioned on pedestals lit by design lamps, ready to be admired from every perspective and, in the meantime, to taste the assortment of samples proposed by the kitchen.
As always, Saucony had a special eye on its guests, offering both a selection of items, from tote bags to shoes, personalised and hand-painted by professionals, and a live painting performance by EricsOne, who during the evening created another piece of artwork, much smaller than the one in Corso Garibaldi, but equally impactful.
The event was then enlivened by exceptional music, with a dj-set by Polly and Pamy, who for the second part of the evening gave way at the consolle to DJ and producer Shablo, then joined by artist Ernia who entertained the audience with her “Superclassico” on the very day the single went platinum three times.
The evening also officially launched the new Fall/Winter 2021 campaign which precedes a series of highly anticipated releases throughout October including the Shadow 6000 Sweet Street from the Shadow 6000 Foodfight.

Two of the most iconic players in the streetwear world, Stüssy and COMME des GARÇONS, have released a new collaboration with a 90’s and essential aesthetic.
After launching the Laguna Beach fragrance earlier this year, the brand founded by Shawn Stüssy and the one created by Japanese designer Rei Kawakubo continue their dialogue with a new capsule collection consisting of: a black nylon coach jacket with co-branded graphics on the left chest and back of the jacket, a grey hoodie with the “CDG” and “Stüssy” logos on the chest and a graphic on the back and two t-shirts – one in white and one in black distinguished by the “CDG” logo, a triptych of Stüssy logos and the “N°4” typical of the Californian brand.
This latest Stüssy x COMME des GARÇONS apparel collaboration will be released on September 24 in Stüssy, CDG and select Dover Street Market stores and online through the Stüssy and CDG shops.
Dutch brand Patta has recently unveiled its latest collaboration with Napapijri. After those with C.P. Company, Sebago and Kappa, Patta joins forces with the Italian brand founded by Giuliana Rosset in 1987, and for this Fall/Winter 2021 churns out a capsule collection of 90’s inspiration.
After the presentation of NAPA by Martine Rose with a pop-up store at Patta’s headquarters in Amsterdam, the collaboration represents a natural evolution of the two brands’ philosophy. A reworking by the Dutch brand, of some iconic items that have made Napapijri a cult brand of the 90s.
With the opening of the Milan Chapter Store, Patta wants to pay homage to the design ethos of Italian brands with the intention of mixing streetwear aesthetics with the typical Italian visual language.
The famous Skidoo jacket, a t-shirt with all-over print and two long-sleeves undergo a re-invention through the use of the logos of both brands and graphics straight from the 90s and 2000s.
The Patta x Napa collection will be available from tomorrow September 24th at Patta Chapter Stores in London, Amsterdam, Milan as well as on patta.nl.
