Winter 2014 collection by Phanion

It’s been three year since the official launch of Phanion collections, which consist of collars, scarves, plastrons and vests, essentially in recycled fur, but also in various other materials (wool, leather, fabric, polar). The designer, Daniele Proulx (from Montreal) reinvents each year the concept of the fur collar and proposes a fashionable solution to brave cold winters without being chilly at all. It’s truly a good news for all people living half of their year under snow and ice ! I bought one of her fur and wool collar two years ago, and that’s the only way I’m able to walk 3 km every day to go to work in winter, even if it’s minus 30 outside. I’m going to renew my winter wardrobe this year with one of her wonderful new creation for sure !

Ça fait déjà trois ans que Phanion a lancé sa première collection officielle, une marque qui se consacre à la confection de cols, de foulards, de plastrons et de vestes en fourrure recyclée. La designer, Daniele Proulx (de Montréal), réinvente chaque année le concept du col en fourrure et propose des solutions mode pour affronter les hivers québécois sans avoir froid du tout ! C’est vraiment une bonne nouvelle pour tous les frileux comme moi qui vivent sous la neige et la glace 6 mois par année. J’ai acheté un de ses foulards il y a deux ans et c’est probablement le morceau de vêtement d’hiver que je préfère, et on peut le porter tous les jours ! C’est aussi le seul moyen que j’ai trouvé pour marcher 3 km dehors tous les jours pour me rendre au bureau l’hiver, même s’il fait moins 30 ou qu’il vente à écorner les boeufs. Je vais regrayer ma garde-robe d’hiver 2014 d’une de ses nouvelles créations, ça c’est certain !

Merci Daniele de faire des aussi beaux design avec de la fourrure recyclée, ça nous donne étrangement envie que l’hiver arrive !

Between Dog and Wolf by Audrey Hays

Stunning pictures. I had to share it here.

Aubrey Hays created the series ‘Between Dog and Wolf’ where she explores our lives taking place in between domesticity and wilderness. Her pictures are shot at sunrise or sunset, when the light wavers in such that a dog on the horizon could perhaps be the lurking shadow of a wolf. Aubrey’s body fits oddly into the surrounding, sometimes she even appears almost invisible, blending with the nature around her. She’s grappling with the uncomfortable, the disquiet, the unknown, she points on our overwhelming need to overcome isolation within these rural spaces. ‘Through the perseverance of remaining within the landscape, sturdiness takes shape as the wolf appears. It is my ever-challenging paradox of intimacy and distance, which draws me to the environment, yet stands in the way of my ever fully anchoring to a place.’

Automn 2013 collection by Yarden

I’m clearly a pattern-aholic, and this new fashion label from Berlin just do it right with their embroidered details and their off-beat designs. I like the photographies too.

YARDEN is a fashion label focusing on high quality garments with printed surfaces, embroideries and handcrafted details. The designers Celina Böning and Daniel Ramirez Perez worked as illustrators, art directors and designers before they founded their Label in 2012. With YARDEN they found a project combine their collected visual memories and impressions of contemporary visual culture.

Lanscapes by Joseph Ford

An interesting serie of photographs, juxtaposing clothing and landscapes seen from above. Quite a strange mix… and then we just don’t know what came before, the picture of the landscape or of the clothing… ?

Une intéressante série de photographies, juxtaposant vêtements et paysages vus du ciel. Drôle de mélange… et voilà qu’on ne sait plus trop ce qui est venu avant, la photo du paysage ou celle du vêtement… ?

Sum Times by Aakash Nihalani

Love the simplistic way of seeing architecture and trash cans. By Aakash Nihalani (his website worth the click !)

J’aime cette façon simpliste de voir l’architecture et les poubelles. Par Aakash Nihalani (son site web vaut le détour).
