Collection 07//On Strike 1996

Poster//Viktor & Rolf 

 I was really inspired by the concept of this image. The composition and the digital editing of the image showing layering and depth really add visual texture. The garment it's self is an art piece showing the elements of design such as form, line, shape, texture, etc.

Concept//Viktor & Rolf

I really liked this piece as the ruching executed so well and the choice of fabric makes is visually textual. The ruching is created in a sphere shape to enclosed the models neck which is aesthetically pleasing.

This image really stood out to me as the silhouette shows how the piece has a lot of movement. Thus, there was careful consideration for the material choice. The image it's self is amazing as they have captured what would be a thrilling moment.

Rebellion in Silence

Date//1978

Material//Feather and wood

This piece is beautiful aesthetically from the juxtaposition of the delicate feathers and the wooden frame. I also like how simple the set up of the image is allowing the piece it's self to speak.

S/S 2010

I really liked the large pleats and the origami feel this piece evoked. The fabric almost seems like a paper from the fragile silhouette.

I liked how this was a different take on reconstruction. The pieces are placed in completely different areas of the body thus bringing attention to a new area.

Reflection of Mineral

Architects: Atelier Tekuto
Location: Tokyo, Japan
Photographs: Makoto Yoshida

From the architect. The site is located near the center of Tokyo. It is a small 44m2 corner plot bounded by two streets. Conforming to legal conditions and in response to the client’s wish for a ‘roofed garage’ the volume was trimmed from various directions. Using the words ‘Mineral’ and ‘reflection’ as guiding concepts, Atelier Tekuto proceeded to use subtraction as a positive tool for design. Reflection is a recent concept pertaining to the perception of space. Vision is an important factor in the recognition of space. By controlling geometries (facets with three factors: transparent, translucent and opaque) and entangling them in a three-dimensional way inside the internal space, visual reflection is induced. This results in a deviation from the restrictiveness of space.

Purple Prose No.4 

Autumn 

1993

This piece explores the ideas of distortion and layering and there is a cross over with deconstruction that I sensed and felt was relevant to the white shirt project.

Black Hole

Autumn/Winter

2001-2002

The entire collection was entirely black. On the catwalk even the models were given blacked out faces. The silhouette was given prominence over everything else, with subtleties carefully crafted in the varying textures and tailoring. They mention how they were dealing with their state-of-mind through a creative process and produced one of the most acclaimed collections in the designer's career.
