Voltage by Iris Van Herpen

Voltage is the title of Iris van Herpen‘s latest couture collection. 2 outfits are actually 3D printed flexible outfits. The first one is a cape and skirt, which is a collaboration with Neri Oxman from MIT’s Media Lab. The second one is a black dress, a collaboration with the architect Julia Koerner. Both use a different 3D printing technique to achieve these result. The rest of the collection is also worth a look, it’s not like anything else out there.

Chloe pre-fall 2013

Woah. Some pre-fall 2013 lookbooks are stunning this year ! Here is the new Chloé collection… Amazing “constellation” fabrics, mastered textures, layers and transparencies, faded colors matched with fresh cream whites, dark emerald greens, deep bordeaux and strong blacks… look at this. The dresses and the coats are perfect. Chic and classic, but with a very unique and well mastered touch.

Voici la nouvelle collection de Chloé… Des tissus “de constellations” riches et denses, une maîtrise des textures et des superpositions, des transparences, des couleurs délavées combinées à des blancs crème frais, des verts émeraude sombres, des bordeaux profonds, des noirs puissants… regardez ça ! Le robes et les manteaux sont parfaits. Chic, classique, mais avec une touche très unique et réfléchie.

H&M Spring 2013 Lookbook

Looks like H&M would be a good place to shop this spring ! Baroque and ethnic patterns, white, black, red, contrasting textures and volumes…

Fashion retailer H&M mixes structured and relaxed silhouettes for its spring 2013 lookbook starring Nadja Bender. The leading model dons metallic detailing, pleating and foulard prints for the new season. Boxy shoulders paired with sheer dresses and pants evoke a modern, street wear influenced style for this upcoming spring.

On dirait que H&M sera un lieu de prédilection ce printemps ! Motifs baroques et ethniques, blanc, noir, rouge, volumes et textures en contraste…

Bespoke Studio e-newsletters by Studio Newwork

First of all, I hope you had wonderful holidays ! I wish us all a highly creative year, filled with genius ideas, stunning projects and outstanding events !

The first post of the year is about graphic design, great graphic design. Studio Newwork was assigned to make Bespoke Studio e-newsletters, and they chose to make them look just like posters ; a very geometrical approach, that takes the time to find the good proportions, colors, angulations. The result sublimates the beauty of Bespoke Studio images (their website truly worth a visit). You can also see on Studio Newwork website the “behind the scene” graphic work under those punching posters, very meticulous. Love this systematic and neat approach.

Our approach was simply to-thepoint to let them know that Bespoke has been producing strong work. We removed all the unnecessary information, and we used one big, bold image, the photographer’s name and their agency’s name, and Bespoke Studio’s contact info on each e-Newsletter. Dynamic image cropping was one of the technique we used. Original images are great, but we cropped images carefully yet fearlessly. And one of the most important points of these e-Newsletter is to work flawlessly as triptik posters. They should go together well even though the images were shot by different photographers. Another important point is the grid to place design elements where they visually relate to the image. All the design elements are placed and aligned by using perfect square, 2:3 proportion, 90 degrees.

- – - – -

Tout d’abord, j’espère que vous avez passé de merveilleuses vacances ! Je nous souhaite à tous une année hautement créative, remplie d’idées géniales, de projets superbes et d’évènements mémorables !

Le premier post de l’année est à propos du design graphique, du grand design graphique ! Le Studio Newwork a été choisi pour créer l’info-lettre du studio photographique Bespoke et ils ont décidé de présenter ces courriels sous la forme de posters très géométriques, en prenant bien le temps de trouver les proportions exactes, le match de couleur parfait et la position juste de la typographie. Le résultat sublime les images de Bespoke Studio (d’une grande qualité… leur site web vaut le détour). Le site web du Studio Newwork présente également le travail méticuleux derrière ces affiches frappantes. J’aime vraiment leur approche systématique et soignée, le résultat parle par lui-même.
