Well ‘Flower Arrangements’ is probably a bit of an understatement. Maybe his work is better qualified as art (if we need to label, which we do) Azuma Makoto’s work ranges from sending a 50 year old bonzai tree into space to putting 10,000 mini jars filled with flower petals in the shopwindows of Colette in Paris.
For the last Dries van Noten Fashion Show he repeated his project ‘Iced Flowers’; flower arrangements captured in large blocks of ice. These ‘Iced Flowers’ were showcased along the runway and were so overpowering that we even didn’t noticed the garments….oops (That’s how we, fashionangels at Mimi Berlin, got aquinted with Azuma Makoto’s work)
The making of “ICED FLOWERS” January 10 & 11, 2015. At 483 Furuike Ogose-machi, Iruma-gun, Saitama, Japan / Masuda seisakujo (via youtube.com)

It’s an airport…..It’s a performance……Well; it’s a fashion show!
This fashion show for the Spring/Summer Chanel season of 2016 reminds us of the movie “The Truman Show” (1998) directed by Peter Weir. As you all may (or not) remember; that movie is about the life of a man starring in a tv reality show, as himself, in his own life, but he doesn’t know that he’s being filmed and that his surroundings, including people, are a constructed reality. In 1998 this was called a science-fiction type of movie. We’re not sure if the real-life-soap-stars-family The Kardashians exsisted on TV in 1998, but they sure do now: and Kendall Jenner (that’s the half-sister of the Kardashians) strutted this Chanel Airlines runway being a model. That fact ends this petite story in a nice, full circle…..it’s all fake but not so much!
