Apocalyptic SF Action Heroes on the Runway for F/W 18

Apocalyptic SF Action Heroes on the Runway for F/W 18

Fashion-week: menswear for Fall/Winter 2018. It’s a mad, mad world. It truly is. Some Fashion designers can’t take it anymore, and it shows! Rick Owens showed some kind of mutant men. (the ones with the white faces) At Comme des Garçons some of the models  wore skeleton warrior-like headpieces (sewn in fabric). At Yamamoto’s Y-Project, the boys seemed protected by thigh-high-Ugg-boots: again it’s a mad and apocalyptic world!

Comic Book

In the runway shows, by the designers above, there was also a more lighter, and more colorful side to be found. Below, for example; Comme des Garçons, a jacket with an actual comic book print. At Vetements in a more illustrative way: the comic-book figure himself.

Museumvisits Photographed by Mimi Berlin’s Blogger Team

Museumvisits Photographed by Mimi Berlin’s Blogger Team

Mimi Blogger Team visits exhibitions all the time. We often take Partysnaps but we also like to like to incorporate the art itself in our photo’s. Over the years we gathered a large collection of people watching the art on show. The moments we capture are special or absurd or just plain pretty. We also like to take these photo’s when we’re bored or when the younger audience is bored. Also if it’s too crowded to really have a look at the paintings (or other form of art) on show, which is often the case on opening nights.

From left to right:

  • Visitors at the Romantisicm in the North exhibition at the Groninger museum
  • At the opening of in the Gemeente museum, The Hague. Couple is reminescing their past friend who’s work is on show.

Violet Chachki on the Runway at Moschino F/W 2018

Violet Chachki on the Runway at Moschino F/W 2018

Violet Chachki, the winner of season 7 of RuPaul’s Drag Race, closed the Moschino show on the runway in Milan the other day. Remember; it’s the menswear shows for fall/winter 2018 we’re watching. Ms Chachki wore a black tuxedo, with a ‘twist’. Jeremy Scott,  designer for Moschino, named this garment the “tandem tux” because the tail was fixed to yet another model wearing the same jacket. Our best guess is that it was a female model: Violet looked rather manly. Don’t get us wrong here: we think she is always adorable!

Mini Runway Report F/W 18 Prada

Mini Runway Report F/W 18 Prada

Mimi Berlin watched the Prada show via livestream (prada.com) in the comfort of her own headquarters (praise technology!) and she has something to say about that fashion show. In a nutshell; first impression published on instagram.

And we’re off to the convention center. Which is also our holiday spot for this year. We are global citizens, wordly wanderers. We are proteced from the cold by High-tech gear, we don’t need socks. Our summer outfits are padded and printed. Our work-wear is made from padded nylon and other thick high-tech cloth (or is that wool?) the colors are in tonal hues of black, yellow, purple, brown and green.

Red Star Over Russia A Revolution in Visual Culture

Red Star Over Russia A Revolution in Visual Culture

Mimi Berlin Blogger Team went to see the Red Star Over Russia (A Revolution in Visual Culture 1905 – ’55) exhibition at the Tate Modern in London the other day. This exhibition marks the centenary of the October Revolution. On show is a visual history of Russia and the Soviet Union. From the overthrow of the last Tsar and the revolutionary uprisings of 1917, through to the struggles of the Civil War and Stalin’s campaign of terror, it reveals how political events led to the social transformation that inspired a wave of innovation in art and graphic design across the country.

David King

‘Red Star Over Russia’ is made with the huge collection of the late graphic designer David King (1943 – 2016) which carries over a quarter of a million artefacts by famous and anonymous photographers, artists and designers, it features over 250 posters, paintings, photographs, books and ephemera. King started his collection of over 250,000 items relating to this period while working for The Sunday Times Magazine in the 1970s. The collection was acquired by Tate in 2016.
