Tomasz Pietek – Muscle Skin Suit
The Human Body plastinated by Dalian Hoffen Bio-Technique Laboratory
Exposed anatomy remains a hot topic these days. Plastination is a technique used in anatomy to preserve bodies or body parts, first developed by Gunther von Hagens (1977). The water and fat are replaced by certain plastics, yielding specimens that can be touched, do not smell or decay, and even retain most properties of the original sample. The Human Body Exhibition, featured in various cities around Europe (currently on show in Bucharest, Antipa museum), contains specimens donated in accordance with Chinese law to the Dalian Hoffen Biotechnique Laboratory. DHBL engages in research and innovation of the Plastination technique and produces, preserves and provides specimens to medical schools and the general public for educational purposes.
In the meantime,Tomasz Pietek, a Polish designer, illustrator and animator, creates the muscle skin suit, a challenging outfit designed for bikers everywhere (and not just for them).
Born some time ago (from “our passion for cycling and graphic design”), the prototype designed by Pietek was recently put into production. Now the concept evolves in many variants, from short to full body muscle suits, to arm warmers or leg warmers (check out the muscleskinsuit.com).

Now that the end of the world has passed without harmful effects (at least not in ‘that’ way), I take the opportunity to say Happy New Year to all of you!
And I don’t know a better way for a fresh and optimistic start than taking fashion as a good joke ( as it probably is). I found the charm of Mr Gugu & Miss Go quite approachable… I mean it’s brilliant! Just take a look.
Mr Gugu & Miss Go is a Polish label with a genuine philosophy:
Mr. Gugu is a European brand that has a unique background. It is based on a genuine conviction that the way we dress ourselves really matters for the future of our continent. We like to assist any person who decides to look better than before. We want people of Europe to look fresh, brave, original, and self-confident.
So… Mr. Gugu makes you a dream candidate for the future we dream about. He makes you the cutest child of the age to come. And Miss. Go rules over him just as every beautiful woman rules over her brilliant husband. They both will show you what is worth wearing not only today, and not only tonight, but tomorrow and the age after tomorrow… read more
So, Let Mr. Gugu and Miss Go help you look better. (totally love this statement!)

Again, Happy New Year in fashion!
I’m sure everybody is excited about Balmain’s Fall 2012 collection. Designer Olivier Rousteing convinced us all with his Fabergé egg inspired outfits and edgy silhouettes. The fully adorned dresses and jackets, the amazing belts look precious and even a little bit kitsch, but they’re absolutely wearable from day to night, easy to mix and match (the white sweater worn with those embroidered pants is absolutely gorgeous!).
I guess the best thing we should appreciate at Balmain is the way they found that perfect balance between what Western civilization calls heritage and the freshness of cuts and styling which makes these outfits so up-to-date.
