Just received my Shiva skull bag from DSM (with help from dantebykiko ). First impressions mirror those of jwjp. Definitely very impressed. After all the anticipation, it is pretty remarkable that Aitor and his team could make something that lived up to the hype. I also like the fact that it looks handmade and not mass manufactured - the little brand label inside and the production number are the most obvious. It is a lot lighter than I thought it would be (which at the...
Hypebeast Magazine Issue #4 has a feature on Aitor Throup: Is anyone picking up an issue? The cover feature is on Hedi Slimane, but the Throup feature looks like it could be worth it if the image below was an outtake: Will see if I can get my hands on it and do a scan.
Yeah, like sipang said he really does good interviews. I guess it is because unlike a lot of other designers he really took time to sit down and think about the what and why of his work as a designer. Since everything is basically kind of planned out ahead of time by his drawings and every little detail has a reason for existing, he is not working mostly on intuition (and lots of experience and or skill with the craft) or mood boards, which of course by their nature are...
Yeah you definitely need to have the movie downloaded. Ideally, what you should do is either download the movie straight into the film club folder (after creating a sub-folder for it first) then leave your computer online for it to upload it for you . If you have the file already, then all you need to do is copy and paste or move it into the relevant Dropbox folder on your computer. That's it. When Dropbox is done syncing, the rotating arrows on your taskbar (or whatever)...
Some photos from the H. Lorenzo launch event of the Shiva skull bag. Damn, I really want Aitor's jacket. It was the multi-pocket one at the AW13 showing Photos via hypebeast.com and the H Lorenzo twitter feed. EDIT - Damn, Aitor looks really tired in these pics. Not surprised though, I am pretty sure he has been involved in all of the installations. The jet lag alone would be killer, not to mention the actual work of putting it all together.
So...where's the next movie? I'm looking at you Lionheart (Bump)
I quite like that angle dwyhajlo. I can imagine that Rock Hudson would have definitely gravitated towards the film on the basis of the story resonating with him as you say. The film made me think of Hitchcock (was that intentional by the way? Even down to Saul Bass handling the titles) and yet managed to also be a product of its time. I quite liked it. The claustrophobic camera angles and the editing all contributed to making the film feel very "uncomfortable" with a...
Very nice and neat Auburn. Looks like I really slept on those Marsell shoes. Kept thinking about picking them up then changing my mind. Looks like they will work pretty well with Yohji. EDIT - Looking cool too David
