[ doesn't only cover what's current but also what i think looks good + relevant, no matter what the trend | art, design, music, street style, architecture + film are just a sampling of other interests i love to write about, which in a roundabout way, do affect fashion ]

The ‘Eros Ludic Editon N.3’  FW 14/15 collection by Sans Tabù’ is said to be celebrating sensuality + a joyful physical connection, thanks to the naughty prints, that might make some blush.  All-over print silk sleepwear + intimates that include Kimonos, Short Slips, Culottes, PJ Pants + Shirts + Camisoles make up the collection.

image

Mirror Mirror, Pillow Talk + Love are the names of the three patterns used depicting nudes+ couples in sexual positions , which showcase moments of intimacy + playfulness.  So it shouldn’t come as a surprise to know that the prints come in the colors of Sunlight, Dawn + Midnight.  I especially love how the prints of the nudes + couples incorporate color into their overall design.

3D printing continues to push the fashion envelope so it’s no surprise it could create such beautiful ruffled clothing influenced by distorted grid patterns.  One designer who took the reigns of such an idea is Israeli designer Noa Raviv with her ‘Hard Copy Collection’ shown here.  Printed + stitched lines + grids were applied onto fabrics to evoke images of corrupted 3D drawings, made using computer modelling software.

image

Grid-like patterns are warped + stretched across parts of the garments to create optical illusions across the body.  But to create the feeling of floating swirls around the body + making that 3D effect really pop, tulle + silk organza fabrics were chosen, in black, white + sheer tones.  These fabrics were then layered, ruffled + pleated into voluminous shapes, sometimes edged in bright orange, for that burst of color.  ’I chose the materials that had the most innovative look + the ones that I thought would best fit,’ Raviv explained to dezeen.

Today, artist + Juxtapoz contributor Kristin Farr, just launched a line of wearable gear that highlights her geometric rainbow neo-folk art + psychedelic paintings + patterns.  Farr’s line includes patterned tees, leggings, laptop sleeves + backpacks.  image

To set you aside from anyone at school to the conference room, these laptop sleeves above will definitely do that, if not bring a smile to your new admirers.  The tees are a great way to add just enough color to your Fall wardrobe over a furry sweater or even a long sleeved mod style dress with a moto jacket.

image

For the more daring, Kristen’s leggings definitely hit all the right marks.  If pattern play is your game, imagine wearing them under a differently patterned dress or even paired with a metallic look.  But if the tees are still a bit much for the shy, try one of these backpacks.  Just imagine wearing a patchwork shearling coat, with one of these backpacks behind you?  I think they would also look great with an obnoxiously big fur coat.

image

For your very own original wearable piece by Kristen Farr, they are available for purchase at rare.skyou.com.

My favorite, by far, is the first tee called the ‘Magic Eyes’ tee with a woman wearing her diamond patterned eye frames.

But if you still need to get more of a Farr Out experience, why not try her free #FarrOut app.  You can download the App at the itunes store here: https://itunes.apple.com/app/id648018062

Clever + cost efficient is what comes to mind when I think about these Two Way Reversible Sunglasses by Norwegian fashion brand HAiK + eyewear company Kaibosh.  Their collaboration gave birth to this collection of sunglasses that can be worn in two ways as demonstrated in the movie above.

image

With their special hinge that allows the arms, technically known as temples, to flip around 180 degrees back + forth, the wearer can then choose which frame they’re in the mood for.  Since the temples are both flat + symmetrical, they fit over the ears both ways.

image

If that isn’t enough, these limited edition shades are available with round or rectangular tinted lenses in five color pairings at kaibosh.com or in selected stores.

Scott Campbell, tattoo artist to many celebrities including Marc Jacobs, can now add wine maker to his resume.   Scott has released a limited-edition box set of ‘Saved Wines’ to benefit the arts education charity Free Arts NYC.  Free Arts NYC, comprised of about 500 artists + collectors, provides underserved children + families with a unique combination of educational arts + mentoring programs, annual auctions + outreach activities that help them to foster the self-confidence + resilience needed to realize their fullest potential.  Now, this isn’t Campbell’s first involvement with Free Arts - back in May, he created a collaborative ‘karmic mentorship’ inspired by the permanence of tattoos, as part of the arts org initiative.

Created by both Campbell +  California winemaker Clay Brock, 100 black lacquer boxes adorned with original artwork by Campbell that depict characters + symbols rooted in various superstitious symbols that are not just prevalent in tattoo artistry, but also represent the artist’s belief in the power of symbolism + the ability of willpower to set positive well-being in motion, will contain a limited edition set of ‘Saved Wines’.  In fact, with each set dedicated to Scott’s desire to improve youth access to arts education, in this case Free Arts NYC, along with symbols of optimism, is a winning karmic equation.

Each box will contain a 750-mL Saved Red Wine 2012 — a robust, rich wine with ripe berry flavors from Merlot, Malbec, Syrah + Zinfandel + one Saved “Magic Maker” Rosé 2013 - a bone dry rosé made from a Cabernet Franc-dominant blend of red varietals with notes of cantaloupe + guava.

Available for $100 via www.savedwines.com, each set is dedicated to Scott’s desire to improve youth access to arts education, + what a sexy set it is!
