yiqing yin. a medusa of modern times…

“to me fashion is not only about a garment but also striving to create an emotion, to tell a story and to relate to others.” (yiqing yin)

još jednom zdravo istoku. pozdrav suncu! yiqing yin je rođena u pekingu, ali od svoje 4. godine živi u sidneju, njena porodica je pobegla iz kine jer je njen otac podržao studente na tjenamenu. posle su prešli u pariz koji yiqing yin polako osvaja. 2010. je dobila nagradu za dizajn grada pariza, a kolekcija za koju je nagrađena zvala se “egzil”… njeno ime ne znači tek tako: “posle oluje dolazi sunce”… školovala se u parizu na école  nationale supérieure des arts décoratifs.

jedna njena kolekcija zove the dreamer… volim takve nazive. poetične. one koji kazuju da tu ima nešto više od pohoda na tržište i trendove. yiqing yin je prvo nastupila kao individualac. za sebe. i za sve srećnice koji mogu da priušte sebi njene senzualne modele načinjene od najluksuznijih materijala, ali i od obične medicinske gaze… i njenih snova. sada je kreativni direktor francuskog branda léonard.

yiqing yin ima zanimljivu putanju po kojoj hoda u svetu mode i zaista joj je mesto na blogu (ili bilo gde gde se to čini) koji slavi susret umetnosti i mode. pogledaj samo fotografiju iznad. možeš li svesti to samo na odevni predmet? zvanična potvrda toga da je u ovom kreatoru stanar i artista je i njeno učešće 2013. na venecijanskom bijenalu. la biennale di venezia je te godine odala počast putu svile. šest umetnika iz italije i sa istoka su učestvovali na izložbi “silk map“.

njena instalacija “in-between” počiva na njenoj dirljivoj rečenici: “when a million silk threads come together as blood...”

jiqing yin ključne reči:

drapiranje, drapiranje, drapiranje

romantika i senzualnost

zen

skulpturnost

soft armour

tradicija i avangarda

dekonstrukcija

fascinacija podvodnim svetom i  uopšte prirodom

“the creative power of nature fascinates me,it is fragility, it is organic forms, the impact of light and its mineral surfaces … i try to bring all these elements together in my collections by playing with the aesthetics of movement and draping, creating nature-inspired forms that transform the garment itself.” (yiqing yin)

“when i work on a silhouette, i build it according to the body shape, like an armour or fluid shell,” she says, adding that the woman who wears her clothes is nonchalant, “aflâneuse; a medusa of modern times with a casual state of mind who feels at great ease with her self.” (yiqing yin)

“when i drape a garment, i don’t know where it’s going to end up.” (yiqing yin)

odavde

my clothes are for someone who wants to affirm her identity, who is not afraid of being individual and who likes to play with her appearances. she wants to communicate something special. she is feminine but also very strong… (yiqing yin)  “she has her head in the clouds but her feet on the ground – she’s a free wanderer. she’s a goddess who walks in the real world with a distance from everybody else. she’s extremely sensual – but with a wild side. my designs provide a soft armor for her…” (yiqing yin)

emma, light, wabi sabi…

“defining wabi sabi in physical terms is like explaining the taste of a piece of chocolate by its shape and color.” – wong & hirano

emma bradstreet, photographer – yuvali theis

 

emma bradstreet dolazi iz londona, a diplomirala je 2014. modni dizajn na kingston univerzitetu. njen dreamspace, njen stil je minimalistički i zasnovan na japanskoj estetici.  kolekcija sa kojom je diplomirala zove se: “wabi-sabi“… osvojile su me na prvi pogled fotografije njenih modela prepune nežne svetlosti koju je znalački zabeležilo senzibilno fotografsko oko koje ima yivali theis. srećan joj ulazak u svet modnih kreatora. njeni počeci obećavaju.

ring the bells that still can ring.

forget your perfect offering.

there is a crack, a crack in everything.

that’s how the light gets in.

sa njenog sajta #

“inspired by the japanese aestheticwabi sabi’, emma bradstreet’s graduate collection celebrates the beauty of things imperfect, impermanent and incomplete.

the word ‘wabi’ connotes rustic simplicity, freshness, quietness and an understated elegance. it can refer to quirks and uniqueness arising from the construction process. the word ‘sabi’ by contrast relates to beauty or serenity that comes with age, when an object’s wear and tear is evidenced and its impermanence exposed.

inspired by cracks, crevices and all other marks that time and weather leave behind,
‘imperfect, impermanent, incomplete’ is embodied by asymmetric shapes, rough textures, subtle hues and natural materials.

strongly influenced by menswear, the collection features a range of timeless and classic silhouettes, focusing on the reinvention of traditional pieces through unconventional fabric choices and a tendency to flaunt the unwritten rules of tailoring. an asymmetric lapel or an angled shirt placket, each working detail leads to a new interpretation of a classic tailored garment.

using a combination of clever cutting, contemporary fabrication and minimalist design, this collection incorporates british tradition, skill and quality where good design is about enduring quality and understated detail.”

tilda, korea, hanbok…

well, magazine vogue ume da posveti pažnju ljudima koji su poznati po tome što su samo poznati, ali ume i te kako da pokloni pažnju i onima koji je istinski zavređuju.  za 19. godišnjicu (južno) korejski vogue je sa dobrim ukusom i stilom svoje reflektore usmerio na ženu koja se zove tilda swinton. btw, ovde gde živim nacionalnog izdanja vogue magazina nema ni na vidiku. što je sasvim za očekivati za zemlju u kojoj prosečna plata fakultetski obrazovanog čoveka ne dobacuje preko 450 eura. no, sreća se ne kupuje novcem… ima raznih načina. otići preko granice npr. :-) ili sanjati, biti day dreamer. ili…

kako god, internet je dostupan i onom gorepomenutom mom sunarodniku sapatniku koji ima cca 450 eura, pa može da zaviri i u južnokorejski vogue. i da vidi kako tilda osim što sjajno glumi, sjajno izgleda i kao model. i to u svetu terora mladosti! ta sjajna talentovana, oskarom ovenčana, obrazovana, buntovna i slobodna žena od 55 godina!! njena autentičnost i ta prefinjena jednostavnost vidljiva je i u chanelovoj garderobi (inspirisanoj korejom ) i kada nosi modernizovan korejski hanbok koji potpisuje baek oak-soo  ili  tchai kim young jin. fotografije je uradio hong jang hyun. btw, hanbok je čudesno lepa tradicionalna korejska odežda i preporučujem ti knjigu sunny yanghanbok – the art of koeran clothing“. ja sam uspela da je nabavim i guštaću je ovih dana…

Tilda-Swinton-Vogue-Korea-August-2015-Issue-Tom-LOrenzo-Site-TLO

the last great taboo of modern western civilisation. capitalism is built on the idea that one can go out and buy another scented candle and get less lonely somehow. but i think the deal is that you are fully lonely, and the sooner we accept and embrace our loneliness, the healthier we are. and that real love has nothing to do with that romantic idea of oneness, of distracting and healing each other from our loneliness, it’s about witnessing each other as individuals and saying: i’ll show you mine if you show me yours.”
tilda swinton

Tilda Swinton by Hong Jang Hyun  for Vogue Korea August 2015  9


“i’m not even sure i have a love for fashion, to be perfectly honest with you. my relationship with fashion is entirely based on my relationship with various individuals and friends of mine who happen to make the work. if i didn’t have those friendships, i would not be invited to their shows or even invited to wear their clothes. i don’t follow fashion. i still have and am happy to retain a beginner’s mind.” (tilda swinton, 4 in style)

Tilda Swinton by Hong Jang Hyun  for Vogue Korea August 2015  8

“maybe the interesting thing about clothes is that people live in them, and that there’s nothing else really to be said, and so it’s trying to trace that and concentrate on that, and to honour our clothes, rather than coco chanel or napoleon or anybody else. actually our clothes.” (tilda swinton, dazed)

Tilda Swinton by Hong Jang Hyun  for Vogue Korea August 2015  7

“i wanted to convey observations about a kind of limitation of a completely false hierarchy in the market and a kind of global availability and domination of certain luxury brands, which is disappointing at best. it’s possible to walk into a rich person’s house in any city in the world and find the same make of candles, or the same shoes. i find it a waste of cultural specificity and history and myth making, and i would so much rather walk into someone’s house, however much money they have, and feel that i’m actually connecting with the culture of that place and the people who live in that place. i’m disappointed when i go through airports and i see the same shops and i think there’s a way in which that particular luxury milieu is like one big duty-free shop.” (tilda swinton)

Tilda Swinton by Hong Jang Hyun  for Vogue Korea August 2015  4

i’m basically interested in identity, and i still find fascinating the question, how do we identify ourselves, and how do we settle into other people’s expectations for our identity… (tilda swinton)

“there are very few clothes that really move properly, in relation to the body, like haider’s do – that feeling of them being designed for movement; designed for the body; for the gesture. i really love the way in which he designs for a moving human body and you’d think in fashion that’s not such a tall order but it is. people still design for the still frame, for one photograph when the person isn’t moving at all and are posed,” (tilda swinton, vogue)

Where is the Kawakubo of today?

jutro sam na fb profiliu jednog svetski poznatog blogera videla pitanje iz naslova mog posta. postvaljač pitanja je cathy horyn, oštro pero modne kritike the new york times-a. dok sam iščitala ceo tekst post blogera iz prve rečenice je nestao. predomišljanje? promena stava? procena da je bolje taj status izbrisati, profit je ionako u prvom planu? kakogod, mene je taj status doveo do intervjua koji je cathy dala za system magazine #5, proleće/leto 2015, koji je u aprilu preneo bof. intervju je uradio jonathan wingfield.

cathy horynimage via guest of a guest

cathy horyn je ponovila konstataciju koja se podrazumeva, ali se ignoriše: car je go. dok se, predvidivo, dobra većina utrkuje da pohvali carevo novo odelo. čak i oni od kojih se to na prvi pogled ne bi očekivalo. na primer: suzy menkes. propagnadna mašinerija, brendiranje i prodaja postali su smisao svega u modi. u prevodu: profit. sve, baš sve, zarad njega. alfa i omega. i sva ostala slova. i svi se daju kupiti. da li je naivni idealizam želeti nešto drugačije? ne zanima me. što bi rekli šezdesetosmaši: budimo realni, zahtevajmo nemoguće!

a pitanje iz naslova? pa, ja bih se usudila da odgovorim cathy horyn, the kawakubo of today je u kini. tamo među onih koliko-beše-milijardi-do-juče-uniformisanih-ljudi. tamo gde je žudnja za promenom, autentičnošću, individualnošču velika. i za japance su u drugoj polovini prošlog (mog) veka govorili da idu okolo, gledaju i kopiraju, pa šta su napravili? seti se šta veliki yohji yamamoto rekao, a taj zna:

“start copying what you love. copy copy copy copy. at the end of the copy you will find yourself.” (yohji yamamoto)

i remember suzy menkes writing about this in the [international] herald tribune about five years ago. she was going on about branding this and branding that; of course, she was absolutely right, that did happen, and the importance of branding has become key. but then it started becoming a part of her writing, there was just too much of an embrace of that language and the methodology that those companies were using. and i thought, ‘wait a minute, suzy, why are you working for these people? you work for a newspaper and you’re a critic, please try and stay somewhat independent of that thinking.’ suzy won’t like me saying that, she’ll say that i’m a… well, she will say what she will say. i mean, people could say that i’m being a pollyanna about this, but it’s had a terrible influence, i find it polluting. (cathy horyn)

when the world knows beauty as beauty, ugliness arises
when it knows good as good, evil arises
thus being and non-being produce each other
difficult and easy bring about each other
long and short reveal each other
high and low support each other
music and voice harmonize each other
front and back follow each other
therefore the sages:
manage the work of detached actions
conduct the teaching of no words
they work with myriad things but do not control
they create but do not possess
they act but do not presume
they succeed but do not dwell on success
it is because they do not dwell on success
that it never goes away

Uldus Bakhtiozina

predrasude i stereotipi! tako poznati svima nama. iz razloga jer nam nisu poznati drugi. mi drugima. oni nama. i tako u krug. ili je reč o spirali? neograničenoj. pa, se ne zna više ni gde je početak. a do kraja bi moglo da dodvede šta? spoznaja? moguća li je? uldus bakhtiozina misli da je ključ u ironiji. i za žene i za muškarce. irony. iron man. ironing man… & woman, 2.

evo ja sam iz srbije i pojma nemam o poreklu njenog imena: uldus bakhtiozina. nije mi ni ruski zvučalo. kada sam kao studentessa bila u njenom rodnom sankt petersburgu ispred isakiejvskog sabora, te prelepe crkve, u crnom grombi kaputu stajao je mladić koji se zvao roman. izgledao je bolje od bilo kojeg junaka svih ruskih romana zajedno i prijateljice i ja smo mu prišle i pitale ga gde se nalazi znameniti isakijevskij sabor. kada smo saznale to što smo i znale saznale smo i da se zove roman. bili smo u rusiji, padao je ruski sneg, bilo je ruski hladno i krenule smo da mu govorimo: “vi rusi ovo, vi rusi ono…” on, elem, nije bio rus, bio je tatarin. (btw, uldus je to po ocu, a po majci je ruskinja i ukrajinka) bila sam tamo kada je junakinja ovog posta, lepa uldus bakhtiozna imala 3 godine. došle smo sa ubeđenjem da u tadašnjoj rusiji perestrojke slušaju balalajke, igraju kazačok i da, da svi loču. i da su svi rusi. roman nam je pokazao nama nepoznatu rusiju, studirao je istoriju umetnosti i radio kao dj, voleo je stinga, znao dobro istoriju svoje zemlje i svog fascinantnog grada, pokazao nam je neka mesta za koje smo prepotentno i ignorantski mislile da ni ne postoje u rusiji. prosto, bile smo neznalice, ljudi najčešće i jesu neznalice. nije ni baš lako čoveku da bude znalac. to zahteva trud. i vreme. i opasnu želju da se nešto pojmi.  zahteva i borbu sa raznim preprekama. unutar i van sebe. ali, da se vratim na uldus, o njoj je ovde reč i o njenoj umetnosti. dolazim iz zemlje o kojoj drugi jako malo znaju i lako im je da imaju predrasude prema njoj, pa mi je iz perspektive mog porekla i mog životnog iskustva ova priča i prijemčiva i razumljiva. i draga na neki način. možda slovenski mazohistički. ili romantično…

zapravo, юлдус бахтиозина, juldus bahtiozina, rođena je 22. jula 1986. (pa, srećan rođendan devojko!)  u tada lenjingradu, a sada sankt petersburgu. studirala je na central saint martins koledžu u londonu. prvi je TED-ov govornik iz rusije. ona je fotograf i vizuelni umetnik. i sjajno barata sa predrasudama, steretipima, ironijom. i vrlo moćno to čini. i duhovito. na šta prvo pomisliš kada čuješ da je neko rus? na matrojške? votku? hladnoću? mafijaše? devojke koje žele da se bogato udaju na zapadu? uldus se sa svime time poigrava. i to radi mudro & šarmantno. provokativno. često su to njeni autoportreti… od 21. godine živi van rusije. london, nepal, indonezija, hong kong…

svet je lep. i šaren. tako je dobro što smo različiti. pa, i po cenu da se ne poznajemo. ako imamo želju da se upoznamo, to je već pola puta…

“but remember, irony is the key, and this is actually to motivate girls to fight for goals, for dreamsand change stereotypes. be brave. be ironic — it helps. be funny and create some magic.” (uldus)

“sometimes, in my project, i would take the painting and give it new meaning and new temptation about it. sometimes, i would compare facial features and playing with words: irony, iron man, ironing man.” (uldus)

uldus, ted,  desperate romantics

“my mission is to keep people developing their brains, not boxing themselves in and always staying awake.” (uldus)

STATEMENT

WE DON’T SEE THINGS AS THEY ARE, WE SEE THEM AS WE ARE

every shot i take is influenced by something, and each photo tells a story. i reference things that are special to me. whether it is an old film, a song, a painting, or a poem. it’s all about telling a story. i am constantly inspired and my way of expressing this is by taking photos, it’s my way of sharing my experiences. there are way too many bland, cold, boring fashion and lifestyle photos out there. my photos try to express something deeper then today’s average trendy photo formula. i make it a point to get away from that. i want to be learning something or feeling something when i’m looking at a photo – so i try to create the same experience with my photography. with my art. with my life! i am deeply inspired with pre-raphaelites , poetry of XIX century, with paganism and russ land fairy tales, at the same time i am very passionate about modernity, media, i love super heroes, especially iron man, i love german language and colored hairs on girls. so, all these little and big things come to me and get to you from me through my art photography! generally my statement is to be free and flow with emotions. i am gaining to bring beauty and positive emotions to people! i live for that! STAY HIGH!  (uldus bakhtiozina)

vogue italia, marzo, 2015: “my life in general can be described in one phrase, ‘analytical spontaneity’, i analyze my surroundings and take spontaneous action”. 

“i realised that it doesn’t matter where you are, what matters is who you are and what you want to achieve” (uldus)

“this boy is a professional dancer, only 12 years old, but at secondary school, he hides his dancing classes and is wearing the mask of brutality, trying to be united with the rest of his classmates like a storm trooper has no personality. but this boy has goals and dreams but hides it to be socially accepted,because being different isn’t easy, especially in russia.” (uldust)

be sure on your wishes

gold fish from russ land series

“i was born in ussr in 1986. my first degree was politics and i dreamt of becoming the first female president in russia, though i still think it’s possible, i will try my way to it from the position of minister of culture, since it has to become contemporary and not so narrow as it is now. as an artist i started at the age of 3 or 4, started from clay sculpture and drawings, experimented with different medias for many years, until 2013 when i narrowed it to photography. within photograpy i placed sculpture made by me, outfits, drawings and outfits – all i have skill for in one medium.” (uldus b.)

“this is nikita, a security guard from one of the bars in st. petersburg. he likes to say, “you wouldn’t like me when i’m angry,” quoting hulk from the movie, but i’ve never seen him angry. he hides his sensitivities and romantic side, because in russia, among guys, that’s not cool to be romantic, but it’s cool to be surrounded with women and look like an aggressive hulk.” (uldus)

i obavezno pročitaj ovaj intervju. http://www.inspiringfolks.com/uldus-bakhtiozina-breaks-stereotypes/

ona je tako inspirativna i zabavna. u onom najpozitivnijem smislu reči “zabavan”.

пленочной фотографии меня в университете не учили. мое «престижное образование в лондоне» (цитирую журналистов) просто очень престижное. меня, как и настоящего рэпера, воспитала улица, только улица была в лондоне. (юлдус)

masha ma

masha ma!!! nedavno je the guardian objavio sjajan intervju sa njom. rođena je 1985. u pekingu. odrasla je sa bakom koja je uspela od očiju jurišnika kulturne revolucije da sačuva poneki lični lepi predmet, poput kutije za nakit, jer joj je esteika značila tako mnogo. tako je i odgajala unuku. roditelji su joj radili van kine. masha ma već sa 16 godina zna šta želi i to što želi ima sreće da ima šanse i da realizuje i odlazi u london na studije. i to tamo gde će steći najbolje modno obrazovanje. na central saint martins. sa samo 12 godina u elle magazinu se divila alexanderu mcqueenu, a 2007. u londonu sarađuje upravo sa njime. masha je sitna, polovina lica joj je zaklonjena kosom, ali njen stav je pobednički, engleski joj je snažan i ako biste je samo slušali ne biste pogodili da dolazi iz kine. po okončanju studija i osvajanja modnog londona i pariza vraća se u kinu, u šangaj i odatle nastavlja svoju modnu misiju. jednom nedeljno putuje za pariz. ima široko opšte obrazovanje i veliku radoznalost. znala sam da će mi se svideti sve što radi kada sam pročitala da voli kafku, oscara wilda… a njena priča kako je upoznala danteovo delo dovela me je do suza od smeha. elem, kinezi su u njenoj ranoj mladosti, u svom prevodu danteoovog “pakla” (a verovatno i ostalih dela sa zapada) dali sebi popriličnu slobobodu, pa je “pakao” na kineskom mashi zazvučao kao neka lepršava literatura, samo su je zbunjivale ilustracije sandra botticellija koje su bile u dubokom kontrastu sa sadržajem prevoda…

sandro botticelli, abyss of hell, dante, inferno

the chinese translation made the text sound like a happy sunday outing, but the drawings depicted a bloody nightmare. i stared at the pages for hours trying to understand what was going on. something was very wrong.” (masha ma)

momo suzuki, black crane. east + west

sve više i više volim instagram. pronađem nešto što me vizuelno, emotivno ushiti, pogledam koga/šta prati i otkrivam beskrajne koncentrične krugove estetike i radosti! hvala instagramu!

p.s. na instagramu sam @wildsidefashion1

danas sam tako otkrila @momobc. momo suzuki. čudesnu japanku iz tokija koja živi u los anđelesu i kreira odeću i nakit. ona je arhitekta po obrazovanju koji voli da radi, stvara rukama. pravi the maker. kaže da voli da oseća tkaninu pod prstima i dodir tkanine i tela. njena odeća se uvija oko tela, podatno i zaštitnički prati siluetu. lagano i nežno. kao istok što je…volela bih da je osetim, nosim… momo suzuki na pitanje bez čega ne bi mogla odgovora: bez snova, porodice, prijatelja, dobrog vina i pirinča! njena mantra je: simple and functional!

black crane je naziv njene modne linije koju je osnovala sa svojim suprugom koji se zove alexander yamaguchi.

momo u svom domu

ključne reči. ono što asocira na nju:

– lepota jednostavnosti

– wabi-sabi

– suptilnost

– organsko

– kreativnost

– minimalizam

– chic

– udobnost

– zen

– šta se dešava kada istok sretne zapad…

momo: i guess so. when i was little, i made a tiny boat from a leaf, respecting it’s own natural shape. i also took a painting class from the age of 7, where I made an abstract painting of the concept of air. this taught me that imagination is unlimited. my teacher was great and never asked for any explanation — she would say to just do what you believe.

rođen je 1990. godine, završio modni dizajn, vegetarijanac je, voli minimalizam i alternativu. a svaki put kada minimalizam sretne alternativno ja se obradujem. nguyen hoang tu je svoj, donosi svežinu i dobar vetar sa istoka. sav je u jednostavnosti i u detaljima koju tu jednostavnost samo upotpunjuju. zaokružuju. čisto. crno i belo. i sve podseća na osunčan prolećni dan pod blagim, ali jasnim svetlom.

ovaj tekst ispod sam, takođe, našla na njegovom instagramu. iako je reč o frazama, govori, ipak, o ovom mladom čoveku iz vijetnama. on sanja. i veruje. a to je neophodno i ovom svetu. i modi.

vruće junsko popodne u palermu. gotovo ništa ne radi. vreme sieste. pisala sam o tome na svom drugom blogu već. šetnja uz malu pomoć šešira. granita siciliana. i brioche con gelato. i junsko izdanje vogue italia!

u glavi scene iz wendersovog fila “palermo shooting”… i one kada campino fotografiše trudnu millu jovovich…

sedim na stepeništu prelepopg teatra massimo i listam… kako dobar osećaj, čak i pod užarenim suncem! vogue italia i ja mislimo slično. kineska moda je u ekspanziji. dobroj ekspanziji. donosi ono nešto novo što je nedostajalo. svež vazduh sa istoka. kao početkom osamdesetih prošlog veka što je duvao dobar vetar iz japana. volim istok. volim spoj istoka i zapada.dodir mirnoće i nemira. dodir koji daje lepotu nesavršenosti. na stepeništu zgrade koja, popout toliko toga sa zapada, atakuje na simetriju po svaku cenu, listala sam stranice časopisa na kojima se slavi asimetrično u vizuelnim poemama.

“the first time i left china was in the fall of 2010, to do a fashion show in london. i only knew a few words in other languages, so i always carried a small dictionary. i didn’t even understand my agent when he spoke. In addition to the language barrier, i remember it was freezing cold and I ran from one casting to another. i was alone. i had a city map to find my way, but it was in english. one day, at an intersection, i realized that I was completely lost. i didn’t know where to go and I was terrified I wouldn’t make it to the casting, which was very important to me. i was about to cry. at that moment i put my hands in my pockets to keep warm, and found a note written by my boyfriend before i left… it is thanks to that coincidence that i am here today”  (…) what was written in the note she found in her pocket? “be brave, baby!”(fei fei sun)

uopšte, u ovom broju dominiraju varijante reči “poezija“, a to je upravo ono što nam iz kine stiže kroz modu.
