The first women’s capsule collection by Jordan Brand will be released

The first women’s capsule collection by Jordan Brand will be released

Elisa Scotti · 3 years ago · Style

The past year has led to an increase in popularity of Jordan Brand, both on the footwear and apparel front – last May the Jordan IV “Bred” was launched in Girl Size as well. With the new season that opens in 2020, there will be a further novelty, which will mark the beginning of a pleasant revolution. The brand will launch the first all-female capsule collection.

A bold Flight Suit opens the collection, becoming the main item, the classic and inevitable tracksuit takes on a streetwear touch thanks to its proportions and attractive design. It can be transformed and worn as needed, it can be tightened at the waist or shortened on the leg or left as it is. Built on the “flight” that Michael Jordan made in 1988, Jordan’s fundamentals are applied to women’s design, which aims to offer the opportunity to wear versatile garments suitable for any activity. The face of the campaign is Teyana Taylor.

“Our female audience, who have a strong passion for the brand, expects something more, so this capsule collection is built on a higher standard, a competitive spirit and fearless mindset of those who have the audacity to fly higher and higher and break down limits… Last year Jordan Women grew “triplet digits”, generating strong consumer enthusiasm, which has encouraged us to continue to reach new consumers through footwear and women’s apparel,” said Andrea Perez, GM of Women’s Jordan.

We start from the past to arrive at a modern and current style, we see it in the Utility Pant and the Bomber that dress oversize but are absolutely feminine and glamorous, touches of femininity given by the materials and construction of the garments, high waist and faux fur.

…the typical elements of the original suit worn by MJ come to life inside the bomber’s silhouette…“. The jacket is reversible, the pockets of the Flight Suit take away from the need to go out with the bag and the choice of colours also confirms Jordan Brand’s intention to go outside its own schemes, choosing a range of greens and browns that sets them apart from the choices of the past. This type of innovation is also adventurous with the Engineered collection launched last season.

Jordan Women’s Flight Utility Apparel capsules will be available from February 1st at selected stores and from February 14th at Jordan.com, SNKRS and other stores around the world.

China will host its first exhibition dedicated to street art

China will host its first exhibition dedicated to street art

Tommaso Berra · 3 days ago · Art

There is much discussion about the institutionalisation of street art and the ethical choices of gallery owners and institutions when they choose to present works that belong to an artistic expression that was born in the streets and that, according to the most nostalgic, should not move from those contexts.
In some cases, this conversation poses false problems, which concern the nature of the works and the intentions of the artists themselves, who have been able to adapt their role, and already since the 1970s, by bringing this countercultural phenomenon into traditional art circuits.
There are countries where street art has never entered the galleries in the way that other major museums in the world have done, for example China, which recently announced that it will host its first historical retrospective exhibition dedicated to street art and graffiti, on the occasion of Art Basel Hong Kong.

The title of the exhibition is ‘City as Studio’, representative of the mechanism that has overturned the conception of the artist and the evaluation of this type of art by galleries. A process initiated by artists such as Jean-Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring, both of whom are present at the exhibition.
The more than 100 works, created by 30 artists, will be presented at the K11 Art Foundation and have been selected by curator Jeffrey Deitch, a figure who has contributed to the acceptance of street art in the programmes of major museums worldwide thanks to the more than 50 exhibitions he has curated around the world.
“City as Studio” enters the paths of the genre by conveying to visitors the breadth of styles and geographical areas through which different generations have moved. From New York to San Francisco to Brazil, Tokyo and Paris, the exhibition will first and foremost be a historical reflection on graffiti art, thanks to the talents of names such as Fab 5 Freddy , FUTURA, Barry McGee , Mister Cartoon , KAWS and AIKO.

“Dark art with bright colors”: Other World’s Crypto Art

“Dark art with bright colors”: Other World’s Crypto Art

Tommaso Berra · 2 days ago · Art

The landscape of crypto artists is populated, and the name we highlight today is that of Other World, an artist from Los Angeles who manages to define a world that, to use his words, could be described as “psychedelic and surreal”.
The surrealism of his compositions is in the choice of subjects and group scenes, taken from the long tradition of Renaissance and Romantic painting and frescoes, in which historical and religious subjects form large dynamic compositions full of pathos. The psychedelia is linked more to the style with which Other World chooses to cite these references, resorting to highlighter colours completely detached from the background landscapes.

The result that is created is that of a strong contrast both stylistic and thematic, as well as a gloominess that is often given by certain details inserted by the artist such as the destructive fire, the dark skies and the faces of the characters, black with a frightening Venom smile.
To use Other World’s words again, it is “a dark but brightly coloured art”, combining a peculiar technique – a combination of collage and illustration for a digital work – and a high citationism that creates originality in the Crypto Art scene.
The quotation helps the artist not to have to explain too much, not to emphasise the didactic component of the works, leaving the task to the context, the background and gestures that have become familiar thanks to art history. Play and colour are the artist’s share of freedom of interpretation, which he invites us to take, before history and before symbols that are often considered untouchable.

Johan Deckmann’s ironic and sentimental self-help books

Johan Deckmann’s ironic and sentimental self-help books

Collater.al Contributors · 4 days ago · Art

To start again mean to make lists and lists of good intentions and new rules that then, inevitably, end up in oblivion after a few weeks.
We think and ignore small guides who could actually save our lives, especially our emotional lives.
But, in a very ironic way, to remind us that this leads us to have very bad ideas, mediocre loves, fears and great difficulty to express our feelings, there is Johan Deckmann.

Artist, practicing psychologist and author based in Copenhagen is inspired by the self-help book typical of the 70s.
Deckmann, in fact, starts from his theoretical knowledge about the human mind and, through the use of words, analyzes its behavior and thoughts.

“I like the idea of distilling words to compress information, feelings or fantasies into an essence, a truth. The right words can be like good medicine.”

His artworks, which have been around the world since 2015, have been exhibited in several galleries with great success.

Here you can find some of his works but it’s worth seeing them all and you can find them here and here.

The collage world of musician-artist Cato

The collage world of musician-artist Cato

Tommaso Berra · 5 days ago · Art

The world of artist Cato is full of energy and vibrations, both artistic and musical. These characteristics are evident in the works the artist creates with collage, acrylics and airbrush. His being a musician returns not only in the choice of subjects, which are often players that refer to jazz melodies, but also in the energy that always seems to accompany the actions of his works. It is difficult to imagine moments of stasis or calm, the narrative described is the result of an intention to recount a life that is fast and alive, bringing people and landscapes together. This movement is clear in Cato’s video projects, but it also returns in the superimposition of portraits and sharp cuts without necessarily respecting the proportions and harmony of the bodies.

One does not struggle to understand the situations, and the stories that the characters depicted are living, Cato’s ability is precisely that of being able to create with little effort a fascinating narrative that introduces the viewer into the author’s personal world.
