Fashion Shower

Chinese artist Ai Weiwei is no stranger to provocative installations, only this time he received a shipment of garments from 14 up-and-coming fashion designers, with instructions to photograph the clothes for the readers of V magazine.
“Pouring a color on an outfit creates a new condition for the design” said the artist in a statement to V magazine “It creates a midpoint between two conflicting ideas. Gravity and the shape of the clothes combine to create a unique moment”.
The result of this unique will be shown in Dover Street Market New York, next to the clothes from 14 up-and-coming talents including Craig Green, Phoebe English, Hood by Air and more.

This is a Man’s Man’s Hat

8/11/ 2014, 9:34 pm Hats 6

It is always refreshing to meet a new designer who creates fashion in high level and traditional techniques while not forgetting the men’s needs. Meet designer Yael Cohen, a graduate of the Design & Art in HIT, who blends in her work design, art & fashion. Her interest in millinery has brought her to create Justine Studio where all hats are hand crafted in the old art of traditional hat making.

BASIN POLYGON-web HARRY BLUE-web HARRY GREY-webJEN_4755-webHi Yael, can you describe your design process?
“My design process starts with a focus on shape where I try to break out from known constraints and iconic shapes i.e. fedora hats, visor caps & wool hats. I then add in various raw materials I work with – felts in combination with knitted wool or leather, cotton printed with my designs”.
From the current collection Yael highlights the smart Grace Rain Hat – a water resistant hat that can be crumpled into a bag. This rain hat is made from Taybek (a lightweight hybrid material combining textile and paper) printed with a knit-like matt grey design.

JEN_3004-web JEN_3008-web What is it about men’s fashion that make you keep making hats for us?
“I find the territory of men’s millinery fashion very challenging due to two main reasons: first – low supply of men’s hats globally as milliners prefers women’s hat fashion that has a much larger demand and has more design options. Second – from a design outlook men’s hats are traditional & old fashioned”.


The Collector

16/10/ 2014, 8:06 pm art 9

Recreating the 1968 Parisian apartment of an anonymous art collector is the set to Helly Nahmad gallery’s installation at the Frieze Masters fair. The gallery statement offers “an imaginary journey through one man’s life and spirit . . . a diary so intimate and personal, the collection is a mirror of the man”.
The gallery’s stand in the fair was spotted by a London loyal Garçonnière (Hi Gili! thanks for the photos) and received many praises by the international press, highlighting the trend to design a gallery-booth as a piece of performance art.

The fictional collector is described as Bourse de Paris employee who listens to Stockhausen and Berio and fills his apartment (including the kitchen and bedroom) with art: Giacometti, Ernst, Schwitters, Dubuffet and many other modernist giants.
Reading the Nachmad family biography one can imagine how the collector was actually known to the creators of this booth and it is this blurred line between fiction and reality that makes this installation so brilliant.

Empire of the Bar

14/10/ 2014, 8:32 pm Nightlife 3

Although the hype the Imperial Craft Cocktail Bar is still one of Tel Aviv’s best kept secrets and surely the best cocktail bar in town. The Imperial was created last year by veteran bartenders of the city, in order to create a temple to the lost art of the cocktail.

In total 150 cocktails can be ordered at the bar and they always arrive to the perfection. The kitchen is Asian-colonial inspired, the music varies from swing jazz at happy hour to surf and rock n’ roll come latenight and the ambiance is magic.
Few days ago the Imperial won The World’s 50 Best Bars award and in the picture blow some happy Tel Avivians taking the trophy home for the Imperial.
