Rüpert von Rom: Must-see of the month Sebastian Bieniek

Rüpert von Rom’s Must-see of the month: Sebastian Bieniek. Brilliance lays in the most simple ideas. Berlin based artist, film director, playwright and author Sebastian Bieniek draws faces on faces. It sounds extremely simple and maybe it is, but the result is a series of portraits with a very attractive illustrative sensibility. My attention was drawn immediately and I just had to share this with you.

Kisses from Rüpert.

Must-see of the Month, according to Rüpert.

I came across this wonderful and highly fascinating short interview with style director Adrian Clarke. He discusses the Maison Martin Margiela S/S 93 collection.
SHOWstudio asked a range of editors tot tell them about their top punk moment on the catwalk, in order to celebrate and unpick punk’s lasting influence on fashion.
I don’t want to spoil your fun, so I won’t tell you anything. Go ahead and listen, it just a wonderful story.

Kisses all around, Rüpert.

Rüpert’s must-see of the month: MoBA 13

Moba 13 arnhemThe fifth edition of MoBA started last weekend. MoBA stands for Mode Biënnale Arnhem. It is the biggest cultural fashion event in the world, which takes place in Arnhem. This edition Lidewij Edelkoort, world famous trend forecaster, debuts as head curator and I have to say she did a marvelous job. Despite all shallow financial resources and troubles in the board, she managed to put out a exhibition that is worth going to. A Must see!

Once every couple of years there’s a book that’s so smart in concept it’s an instant success. Buttoned-Up tells the story of London style through the history of the button-down shirt – part of a series of twelve books tied to the twelve lines of the London Underground, as Tfl celebrates 150 years of the Tube with Penguin
Gert Jonkers and Jop van Bennekom are the creators of Fantastic Man, a singular modern men’s style journal. Here they chart the history of the button-up shirt and explore why it’s so central to contemporary London’s fashion, design and people. With star contributors, fashion shoots and singular writing, this is a fashion magazine in a book.
A must see/read!

Rüpert von Rom: Shoji Ueda

Must-see!ueda_18_sakyu-mode_d‘Dune D’ form the series “Mode in Dunes” 1989 by Shoji Ueda.

Japanese artist Shoji Ueda, born in 1913, is one of my favorites. This picture just takes you back to the days when men were dapper and women dressed to impress.

These models photographed in the sand dunes of Tottori have a somewhat surrealistic atmosphere that works as food for you fantasy.
Best Regards, Rüpert von Rom
