The Proof Is In The Denim

4/04/ 2014, 7:19 pm Denim, Diesel 2

The historical Arsenale in Venice was the location chosen by Nicola Formichetti to present his version to the future of Diesel.
Denim is still the main feature of the company and it seems Formichetti enjoyed experimenting and taking it into a new level.
Denim was celebrated in Punk, street-wear, rock ‘n’ roll, leather and even more dapper style as Formichetti successfully presented a victorious debut collection for Diesel.

If you are in Tel Aviv this week there is not too much chance you can avoid one of his projects. On April 1st he opened a new stunning exhibition at The Farm Gallery in Holon, as part of the Holon Design Week.
For the exhibition “Golden Age” Samy D. created a unique collaboration with video artist Ronen Sharabani. The exhibition plays on the seamline between memory and reality and produces a chilling encounter that challenges the myth of ‘golden childhoods’.

Nostalgic aesthetics are not always cheesy, especially when they are equipped with a new HD camera. This beautiful object of desire comes from the Japanese camera maker Chinon, introducing the Bellami HD-1, an homage to the company’s 8mm cameras from the 1970s.
The new camera has a 2.1 megapixel sensor and ability to use a variety of modern and vintage lenses. Though currently available only in Japan The Garçonnière is already working on the script of his Nouvelle Vague film.
