'Flatness'

"It is probably not wrong to assume that deep in the mind of every Japanese person lies the culture of the kimono. In the making of a kimono, an uncut length of fabric is put on the human body, resulting in an excess of fabric that creates drapes. The Japanese see this excess as ma (roughly translated as ‘space’) and never consider it illegitimate. The Japanese designers’ baggy, shapeless dresses were also, in many cases, asymmetric - another core element of Japanese aesthetics. Their designs demonstrated a universal approach to clothing, breaking down the barriers of gender, age and body shape just as a kimono does."

1997 IG/RS, Jurgi persoons spring—summer 1998, Antwerp October 1997.
In 1992 Jurgi Persoons graduates from the fashion department at the Antwerp Academy and three years later he starts hiw own women’s collection. From 1999 he shows his collection in Paris in the form of static presentations, quite similar to performance. His oeuvre can be describes as a radical and even trashy interpretation of the classical female wardrobe. In 2003 he stops his own collection and leaves the world of fashion.
Hettie Judah: Grognard and Stoops’ response is not only to leave things revealed, but also to emphasise the fragility of beauty by playing with ugly, through those monstrous masks and through experiments that emphasise the mortality of human flesh; legs and bodies bound with scotch tape or elastic bands. Much as both their commercial and personal work celebrates the beauty and spirit of youth, there is also a suggestion of death and decay, visible not only in their habitually dark collaborations with designer Jurgi Persoons.

Gods’, the SS 2014 collection of Konstantin Gayday

Konstantin Gayday has a weak spot for modern decadence, of which his fashion collections speak volumes. As does his new SS 2014 collection “Gods”, presented at the Russian Museum of decorative, applied and folk Art.

A graduate of the Academy of Fine Arts and Architecture in 1995, the designer born in Novosibirsk and now based in Moscow presents a collection of elaborate headpieces inspired by different religions. A melting pot of iconography from Christianity to Hinduism, Islam, Paganism, Buddhism, Shamanism and Greco-Roman mysteries.
