Monsters in Fashion

From February 13th until April 7th, ATOPOS cvc is presenting its ARRRGH! Monsters in Fashion exhibition at La Gaîté lyrique. The craziest, sexiest and most radical monstrous creatures are invading Paris!

Atopos is a non-profit cultural organization based in Athens. Founded in 2003 by Stamos J. Fafalios and Vassilis Zidianakis, Atopos is already a powerful reference in contemporary fashion, collaborating with various designers and artists, for exhibitions, publications, performances and events. In less than 10 years, Atopos CVC (its name denoting the strange, the unwonted, the eccentric and the unclassifiable) is a meeting point for different visual disciplines, gathering rare original creations of contemporary designers. Atopos stands out with their unusual projects focusing on the human figure and its relationship with costume – see RRRIPP! Paper Fashion (now in Germany, Waiblingen), Atopic Bodies, ARRRGH! Monsters in Fashion (with the first presentation at the Benaki Museum in Athens, and currently on display in Paris, at La Gaite Lyrique).

Based on an original idea by Vasslis Zidianakis, with the design of Fafalios Stamos, ARRRGH! Monsters in Fashion manages a unique combination of  fashion, animation, costume and art. Participating designers and artists reshape the human body and reveal a new universe full of dreams, nightmares and hybrid creatures.  The theme seem very appealing to me, and the 58 exhibitors from around the world, turns it into a stunning cocktail:

Livin’ In A Cage (Part 2)

We’ve already admired Gareth Pugh’s white-cage-dress, featured in a recent editorial of Tush Magazine. And now, here’s a black-cage version, in a beauty editorial of Vogue Russia.

Instead of Make-up

Gareth Pugh – Fall/ Winter 2011/2012.

What happens when you mix technological appeal with fashion’s new tribalism? It’s a kind of beauty revolution, it’s Gareth Pugh.

Gareth Pugh is no stranger to the wonderful world of makeup. As you know, Gareth Pugh isn’t interested only in clothes, his dark beauties reveal a deeper challenge on the body level. Designing something for a cosmetic label sounds natural to him, and really makes sense. Gareth Pugh has developed a new line with Mac Cosmetics, that will come out in November. So, we’re expecting some  interesting packaging designs,  black lipsticks, angular lashes and butterfly-wing-inspired polishes.
