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: 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.

irene silvagni

odavno imam želju da pišem o njoj. nekako mi se činilo (i čini) da je prevelik zalogaj. ti pritajeni tigrovi,  skriveni zmajevi nisu jednostavni za opisati… irene silvagni, ta nezavisna i slobodna žena, rođena je u kanu 1941. poreklom je ruska jevrejka, kći emigranata… između ostalog bila je i kreativni direktor yohji yamamoto-a… kaže da su bili kao brat i sestra. ali, i da nije njegov saradnik, bila bi mi zanimljiva.  pre deset dana na instagramu sam počela da pratim profil byronesquevintage, tačno od dana kada im je gost postala ona. kačila je svoje privatno-poslovne fotografije iz dve decenije duge saradnje sa yy i setih se svoje stare namere da pišem o njoj. o njenom bajkovitom letnjikovcu u okolini avignona možete da čitate ovde: mezoargues.free.fr

kao i njen prijatelj/saradnik, duhovni harizmatični brat – yohji yamamoto, ni ona ne voli savršene, dovršene stvari. godine su za nju tek broj, ali ona nema potrebe da se podmlađuje medicinskim tretmanima, niti da farba svoju kosu… ona zna da je to stvar stanja duha. i slobode tog istog duha. posebno danas kada svet tako oksidira. naravno, uvek je u crnom… uređvala je modne biblije od elle do vogue i napustila sve to kada je osetila okove. i počela da sarađuje sa onim ko je doneo svež vazduh, miris slobode u pariz. sa yamamotom. ona je neko ko otvoreno govori o dominaciji centara finansijske moći u modnoj industriji, o nedostatku etike u tom poslu, a estetika bez etike je ništa. pa, i u modi.

tog 27. aprila na instagramu @bayronesquevintage stavila je  i ovaj tekst:

bonjour, i’m irene silvagni. this week i’ll be taking over byronesque’s instagram with my personal photographs taken over two decades with my dear friend yohji yamamoto. this picture was taken during my first trip to japan with him. when yohji invited me for the first time in japan, i went to an onsen in kyoto with nathalie ours, (note from byronesque: onsens are bathing facilities and inns around the hot springs). we only wore kimonos the whole time we were there. it was my first experience in an onsen and i fell in love with japan.

the film is directed and edited by then french vogue editor and little squares founder debra scherer. interview justin westovert.

for a long time how i had a wish to write about her. somehow it seemed (and seems) that is too big piece. those crouching tigers, hidden dragons  are not easy to describe…irene silvagni, this independent and free woman, was born in 1941, in cannes, the russian jewish origin, the daughter of immigrants… among other things, she was the creative director of yohji yamamoto… she said that they were like brother and sister. but, even she was not his associate, she would be an interesting one to me. ten days ago i started to follow the profile of byronesquevintage on instagram, exactly the same day when she become their guest there. she attached her private-business photos from two decades long cooperation with yy and i suddenly remembered my old intention to write about her. all about her fairy summer house in the vicinity of avignon you can read here: mezoargues.free.fr

as well as her friend / co-worker, spiritual & charismatic brother – yohji yamamoto, she does not like perfect, finished things. years are for her only the numbers, but she does not need to rejuvenate the medical treatments, or to colour  her hair… she knows that this thing is state of mind. and the freedom of that same spirit. especially today when the world is so oxidized. of course, she is always in black … she was editor of  fashion bible vogue and elle she left it all when she felt the chains. and she began to cooperate with that one, who brought the fresh air, the smell of freedom in paris. with yamamoto. she is someone who openly talks about the dominance of the centers of financial power in the fashion industry, about the lack of ethics in this profession, and aesthetics without ethics is nothing. and in the fashion,as well. on 27 th april she put this text to instagram:

bonjour, i’m irene silvagni. this week i’ll be taking over byronesque’s instagram with my personal photographs taken over two decades with my dear friend yohji yamamoto. this picture was taken during my first trip to japan with him. when yohji invited me for the first time in japan, i went to an onsen in kyoto with nathalie ours, (note from byronesque: onsens are bathing facilities and inns around the hot springs). we only wore kimonos the whole time we were there. it was my first experience in an onsen and i fell in love with japan.

a ovo je insert iz razgovora koji je fotograf monika bielskyte (snimila fotografiju gore u vrtu irene silvagni)  vodila sa njom za someslashthings.com:

mb / why do you think people need to get close to death in order to start appreciating their life, all the simple things, to stop being afraid of giving of oneself? since i lost my friend, it made me realise i should not wait before showing people i really care about them, because maybe if people really knew that others cared about them, it could save them.

 is / yes but the problem is that you cannot help some people because their destiny is sort of traced. even if you don’t want to die, sometimes it is too late to stop the process of having hurt yourself. anyway, we all are going to die, that’s for sure. salvador dali made a record. he says that sometimes he invites death to come sit with him, have a drink, so he’ll know her better, so when she comes he’ll be less afraid. i have it here & i will make you listen to it in spanish because it’s really very surrealist & very true at the same time. if you got closer to the idea of death you would be less afraid to die at that certain moment of your life. life & death, i experienced both of them. when my children were born it was life & when my husband died in my arms it was death. those are the two most important moments of our lives. because those two things go beyond our will. the child is born & you cannot do anything about it & when we die, we cannot do anything about it. i believe there are no stronger moments than that in life— birth & death. the rest is just filling up your life & preparing your death. we are on this earth for a reason, so we have to try to fill it up with days that are full of things that are sometimes painful, sometimes joyful but always fulfilling because we have to try to live life the best we can. but we are all different & our concept of life is different. i am not perfect at all, i am the only one to know my own secrets & to know my defects & weaknesses, but i would like to look at myself in the mirror every night & say i did my best.”

j.kim or i pray with all of my love for tulips, cherry blossom…

sasvim slučajno sam je otkrila na instagramu. a nekako je previše svega i nije lako uočiti drvo u gustoj šumi. iglu u plastu sena, zapravo. nedostaje mi spori ritam. sporo ili barem sporije kliženje kroz vreme, prostor, bilo koji, pa i cyber… možda je to razlog što me toliko privlači istočnjačka umetnost. kao spori pokreti očiju yayoi kusami koje sam danas videla na tren na nekom tv kanalu. kao “spori let ptica iz kataloga” lune iz ns. tako bih volela da živim u nekom japanskom vrtu.  ili vrtu gdegod na daalekom istoku. i pravim neku svoju “i pray with all of my love for tulips” instalaciju života. kao yayoi kusama.  i posmatram cvetanje trešanja…  a april da traje barem osam vekova. a ona koju sam slučajno našla na instagramu u rusiji se zove  женя ким, na zapadu jenia kim. ili jane kim.  iz porodice je korejskih izbeglica u uzbekistanu. odrasla u taškentu. btw, “taškent” znači kameni grad. a женя deluje tako fragilno. živi i stvara u moskvi. tamo se i školovala. ima samo 23 godine, a sa 6 godina je počela da šije. spojila je koreju, uzbekistan, rusiju, japan, pop-art, zapad, tradiciju i urbano, sport i eleganciju, korejski kostim i ples i modu, lepo i nesavršeno. i “kupila” mi je. urbano zen (da, to je ta (ne)moguća kombinacija) женя. da imam para ne bih ih žalila da pokupujem iz svake njene kolekcije ponešto. a onda bih pobacala sve ovo što imam u ormanu.  i učila korejski ples…

j.kim je njena robna marka.

i discovered her quite accidentally on instagram. and it’s kind of too much of everything and it’s not easy to discover a tree in a dense forest. a needle in a haystack, actually, i miss the slow rhythm. slow or at least slow glide through time, through space, any space, even the cyber … perhaps that was the reason why i was so attracted to oriental art. as slow as the eye movements of yayoi kusama that i saw today for a moment on a tv channel. as “slow flight of birds from the catalog” of luna from ns. i would like so to live in a japanese garden, or in the garden wherever in the far east. and to make one of my “i pray with all of my love for tulips” installation of life. as yayoi kusama. and watch cherry blossom… and that april last at least eight centuries. the one i accidentally found on instagram, in russia her name is  женя ким, in the west jenia kim. or jane kim… from the family of korean refugees in uzbekistan. she grew up in tashkent. btw, “tashkent” means stone town. but женя seems so fragile. she lives and works in moscow.  and she went to school there. she is only 23 years old and on the age of 6 she began to sew. merged korea, uzbekistan, russia, japan, pop art, west, tradition and urban, sport and elegance, korean costume and dance with fashion, beautiful and imperfect. and she “bought me”. urban zen (yes, that is the (non) possible combination) женя. if i had money i would not regret to buy up something from each of her collection and then i would throw out everything that i have in my closet and i would learn korean dance …

jenia kim founded her brand j.kim in 2013.
