Riccardo Tisci likes Africa and Africa likes him

Lately, there is a great interest towards celebrating Africa, and it’s Riccardo Tisci’s time to express his point of view.

The new Givenchy Menswear collection turns African style  into techo-tribalism. Operating on the surface, the designer creates complex digital prints (displaying boom boxes and dissected electronics), plus some of his favorite motifs – kaleidoscopic effects, stripes and stars, layering etc. But, after all, Tisci remains faithfull to the Italian style in menswear – bold, joyful, colorful, healthy.

Animated Streetstyle

Everybody loves Tommy Ton‘s streetstyle photography.

I’ve spotted these animated gifs, which are really cool. Keeping a ‘live’ effect, the concept of moving photos allows you to feel people’s presence. It also adds a touch of fine humour. Look at the group of (probably Italian) stylish men, aren’t they absolutely lovely?

Eco Salad


Parrots, pandas, anteaters are not the usual animals to be farmed. But exactly that’s the alternative perspective designed by Fuze Image Maker for Conservation International’s environmental advertising campaign.  I guess the images are powerful and suggestive enough.

Conservation International is a nonprofit environmental organization headquartered in Arlington, Virginia. The organization’s mission is to protect nature, and its biodiversity, for the benefit of humanity.

Home Sweet Home

Dipped in pastels and gold, calm and soft humour, Walter Van Beirendonck’s S/S 2014 Menswear collection brings a romantic touch to the masculine summery wardrobe.
Inspired by designer’s home, the collection smartly combines geometry with rustic details. The key-pieces are the oversized woven caps (a collaboration with Stephen Jones), delicate imprinted silk blouses (with hyper-realistic details), perfectly tailored angular jackets, the shoes adorned with phallic symbols. To get a better picture on collection’s mood, you have to watch the entire show:

The NOVA Shoe

The new “haute couture” in footwear is synonymous with cutting-edge technology. At least, that’s what we think looking at United Nude’s Nova Shoe project, born as a collaboration of Rem D. Koolhass and Zaha Hadid .

“the revolutionary design of the NOVA shoe combines innovative materialization and ergonomic considerations with the dynamism of Hadid’s unmistakable architectural language to convey an inherent sense of movement; revealing the experimentation and invention of Hadid’s process through every stage of design and construction.”

The Nova design consists of intricate striations juxtaposed with dramatic realignments, hiding the platform into a seamless result. Using the latest digital design and new manufacturing technologies (rotation molding), this revolutionary shoe combines in a single piece materials such as metallic chromed vinyl rubber, fiberglass and nappa leather, plus a cantilevered system supporting the 16 cm height of the heel.

The provocative yet sensual design comes in a limited edition of 100 pairs in black, bronze and rose gold.
