#3. “Who’s gonna eat my soup?”*

*This picture is inspired by Gnarls Barkley’s song “Who’s Gonna Save My Soul”. 

I’ve been working on it about six months, from August 2009 til January 2010. The biggest challenge was to organize the process without getting lost in the details. 

Initially I planned to finish this work in November 2009, but then I decided to use calligraphy with Blackletter type or Gothic scripts. I’ve spent most of the December on studying different Latin-based scripst used in Medieval Europe and trying them out. Luckily, it turned out to be an interesting and exciting task. Very soon I chose a technique that suited me best. ^^

Format: Poster;

Another Great project from NYC fashion designer, Alex Campaz

We are happy to present you with the S/S 2010 collection of a new unisex clothing label, Grapes and Snakes. Taking a distinct approach to cut and stitched tees by using a blend of provocative iconography from the 1970’s and patterned motifs, Grapes and Snakes plans to develop an aesthetic verging on the sensual and the modern with a minimalist touch.

One of the most creative and inspiring cities on our tour was Amsterdam. The city has an obvious rich history, but I was most intrigued by the relationship between the history and modernity. There is a rich retail culture that consist of inspiring new stores selling the latest fashion labels, mixed with outdoor markets selling anything from Pot Lollipops to knit sweaters and small antiques.

We visited the market at Waterlooplein several times and found some interesting fashion for the SVSV archives.

We found several inspirational vintage fashion and various military and workwear items at waterlooplein market. We also had a chance to visit the Droog flagship store and the incredible Frozen Fountain design boutique. One of our favorite new design boutiques is Gem Baby – filled with exotic little creations.

Our final day of exploration in Amsterdam started sunny but brisk and ended up in a crazy blizzard that shut down most of the city.
The strange part was the Dutch people refused to stop riding their bikes in the cold and even during the blizzard. The frozen canals gave the city a strange surreal glow at dusk.

On a warmer note, our favorite store of the day was 290 Square Meters.

It was fun to explore the canals and boats. I grew up on the Chesapeake Bay in Baltimore, Maryland and have always been drawn to nautical graphics and typography.
Later this week I will post some more nautical type images from a recent trip to the Oregon coast.

As I stated before, I can not express enough gratitude to my close friend Liam and Jennifer Maher for their hospitality on our recent trip to Europe. I will be posting more images from our travels to Parisian Flea Markets and the fashion mecca, Antwerp… for now, here are some additional images from the Denham Denim store and workshop in Amsterdam.

Additional thanks, once again to Jason Denham for his time and generosity. He gifted me a wonderful pair of antique shears from the private Denham archives.

If you are not aware of the Denham brand… please take the time to check out their new site and visit the store. While the market makes thin attempts to react to the craft/ tradition trend, no one, in my opinion is able to mix in enough raw innovation quite like Denham. In the coming years this brand will set the bar higher than most are willing or able to follow.

Please check out the S/S 10 collection from KDU friend Alexander Campaz.
A NYC designer, Alex is a rare breed that still focuses on all aspects of fashion design – from designing his own patterns through final sample production. His latest collection is brought to life with an interesting stop motion video.

saber_flag

Back in October, Fox News host and habitual shit-stirrer, Sean Hannity took L.A. graffiti artist Saber to task over artwork created as part of Organizing for America’s “Health Care Reform Video Challenge.” In a video titled “Saber Speaks,” the L.A. graffiti writer used the American flag as a visual focal point — painting over it in brief time-lapse footage set to the beat of a hospital heart-rate monitor. (The monitor eventually flatlines, much like the current health care debate.) This, of course, provided Hannity with some much-needed filler for his program. Hannity and conservative cockblocker Michelle Malkin immediately expressed outrage. While Hannity appears to drift off into space (no doubt searching  for patriotic inner strength from the music of Lee Greenwood), Malkin, of course, steals the show…
