ARKET launches global brand campaign ‘New Nordic Everyday Design’

Fashion Entitled ‘New Nordic Everyday Design’, the campaign is a showcase of ARKET’s signature combination of simplicity, function and colourful playfulness through a series of looks drawn from its permanent collection as well as upcoming seasonal drops.     ‘New Nordic Everyday Design can be read as a simple manifesto for our philosophy and mission but also captures ideas and inspirations which we often return to in our creative work. It represents openness, innovation and a dedication to make even the ordinary things we use in daily life a little more beautiful’, says ARKET Head of Design, Anna Teurnell.     The concept of everyday beauty was one of the starting points for developing ARKET as well as a major influence on the Nordic modernist movement in the mid-20th century. Formulated in 1919 by Swedish art historian Gregor Paulsson, Vackrare vardagsvara (More beautiful everyday things) became the slogan for a new democratic approach that aimed to bridge the worlds of arts, crafts and functional form to produce affordable and widely accessible items for everyday use.     In the Nordic countries, this ambition was associated with a new ideal of beauty which favoured clean lines, a neutral colour palette and solid materials inspired by nature and the northern climate. Above all, it made functionality and durability the basis for good design.

Nxt Museum, the first new media art museum in the Netherlands, opens its doors

Nxt Museum, the first new media art museum in the Netherlands, opens its doors

Art From last week, visitors can immerse themselves in the futuristic world of Nxt Museum.The groundbreaking museum - which is the first in the Netherlands dedicated to New Media Art - opens its doors to the public with the inaugural exhibition ‘Shifting Proximities’.     Located in the up-and-coming North of Amsterdam, Nxt Museum presents eight large-scale, multi-sensory art installations, four of which have been commissioned by and are premiering at Nxt Museum. Each of the multi-disciplinary installations has been created in collaboration with local and international artists, designers, technologists, scientists and musicians, fusing creative ideas with pioneering academic research and technological innovation.     Merel van Helsdingen, Founder and Managing Director of the museum, said: “We’re excited beyond belief to be welcoming our first visitors today after three years in-the-making and some hurdles along the way. At Nxt Museum, we fuse innovative art and state-of-the-art technology to reflect on the present and look towards the future. I hope that our visitors will feel challenged, stimulated and inspired by these incredible artworks and will leave with new understandings of the world and their place within it.”     Shifting Proximities, curated by Bogomir Doringer with co-curator Jesse Damiani, examines how human experience and interaction are affected by social and technological change. Visitors are invited to engage and interact physically, emotionally and intellectually with the art — from experiencing the formation of a black hole, to learning how plants communicate with each other, and subjecting themselves to the flaws of facial recognition algorithms.     Curator Bogomir Doringer said: “We’re opening the museum in times of COVID-19, which has dramatically shifted the proximities between us and has changed life as we know it. In moments like these, we must come together and unite towards common goals. Shifting Proximities explores how technology helps us stay connected and protected, while confronting how it can be mobilised to control and exploit us. We place artists at the forefront of navigating these complex contradictions and, by relying on active audience participation, we aim to highlight the role and responsibility of us all in shaping the future.”     The works in the first exhibition are: ●  Connected (2020), a new commission by audio-visual artist Roelof Knol with sound by Marc Mahfoud ●  Topologies #1 (2020), a new commission by United Visual Artists (UVA) ●  Habitat (2020), a new work by artist Heleen Blanken with software developer NAIVI and sound artist Stijn van Beek ●  Distortions in Spacetime (2018-2020) by audiovisual pioneers Marshmallow Laser Feast ●  Econtinuum (2020), a new commission by ecological artist Thijs Biersteker in collaboration with plant neurobiologist Stefano Mancuso ●  Biometric Mirror (2018-2020) by sci-fi artist and body architect Lucy McRae and Dr Niels Wouters, an action researcher in human-computer interaction and digital ethics ●  Nxt Stage presents: Dimensional Sampling (2019-2020) by artist and coder Yuxi Cao (James) with sound artist Lau Hiu Kong (Lawrence) ●  Nxt Lab presents: a series of four videoworks by Algorithmic Justice League and Joy Buolamwini. Shaking up the tradition of wall texts, digital artist Benjamin Muzzin and sound designer Danny van der Lagt have been commissioned to create explanatory materials that use a combination of projections, moving-image and text to delve further into the rigorous research and collaborative creative process behind each of the art installations. The ‘transition rooms’, situated between the art installations, also offer visitors a place to relax, reflect and re-set as they move through the exhibition.     Shifting Proximities takes over the entirety of Nxt Museum’s 1,400 square metre exhibition space, includingNxt Lab – a dynamic space for education, research and development, and home to the artist residency programme – and Nxt Stage, a platform for innovative performances and audiovisual art. These two regularly- rotating spaces allow Nxt Museum to stay relevant and respond to urgent socio-political concerns.

In conversation with Sandra Mansour

Fashion We had a delight speaking with Sandra Mansour about her new collaboration with H&M.     What is your collection in collaboration with H&M dedicated to?   Light and Hope! We used the sun and sunflower to bring these two components of nature to life. We wanted to create a collection that speaks true to the need for hope in these trying times.    How did the collaborative process begin?  ​ I received an email while I was on a weekend getaway celebrating my birthday. Next thing I knew, I was on a flight to Stockholm the week after that, and thus began this beautiful journey. It has been a remarkable experience working with the Fleur du Soleil team!  What inspired this collection?    In this specific collection, I referenced four female artists that serve as a constant inspiration to me. Toyen, Dorothea Tanning, Lena Leclercq and Bibi Zogbé. In every collection, I always gravitate towards painters and writers. They both serve as a guiding force for my imagination, and my creative process. Toyen and Dorothea Tanning, are excellent artists in their self-expression, and bringing to life the true meaning of surrealism. You can’t help but escape when you come across one of their paintings. Lena Leclercq, a poet that evokes in-depth emotion and expands your thought process with words, strong yet soft words. Finally, Bibi Zogbé, is a Lebanese painter, who painted flowers as an ode to her homeland. Her ability to express herself and her emotion through a single representation is so powerful, it summons emotions and thoughts you were never really aware you had.    Tell us what makes this collection especially unique in your point of view.   All the pieces that we made, and the fabrics we used make the Fleur du Soleil collection very poetic and true to the Sandra Mansour aesthetic. When collaborating we really wanted to bring both brand identities to life, the coolness of H&M and the ethereal feel of Sandra Mansour. We used soft and flowy fabrics, like point d’esprit , and ruffles, signature features found in many collections.  The campaign is also a very unique and true testimony to the House of Sandra Mansour. The fact that we were able to collaborate in this process as well gave both of us ability to express ourselves especially well, and the outcome is life.    Which are the key pieces of the collection?   I honestly love all the pieces, we really worked hard on creating a concise and fashion forward collection. We wanted a collection that translates easily from daywear to nightwear. I personally, love the caftan with the embossed sunflower print, the black wrap dress, and the point d’esprit tulle ruffled dress, which is a staple piece. All the accessories are easy to wear and add an extra flare to every outfit. Lastly, the t-shirt and hoody are my go to easy pieces.    What does a sunflower represent to you? Hope and light, this flower needs light to blossom, and so does all life on earth. It is a recurring flower, I used it in my first ready-to-wear Bridal collection. I think there is a very poetic, yet strong trait that can be found in the Sunflower. It is a flower that has the same cycle as the sun, it revolves its pattern around it, setting and rising at the same time.    What message are you sending to the women with this collection?   To persevere, and be agile. I think this year has taught us  how unexpected forces can come into play, and influence our lives in ways we never thought possible. For that, we need to be open to newness and change, and remember with change, no matter how difficult new opportunities prosper, and new visions come to life. Move forward with an open mind, and remember the light will always guide us.     all images by OUMAYMA BOUMESHOULI.

Louis Vuitton Men’s Collection by Virgil Abloh Fall-Winter 2020

Men The title of the Fall-Winter 2020 collection, ‘Heaven on Earth’ is an image of the core values embodied by Virgil Abloh atLouis Vuitton: a dream world that transcends prejudice as an objective to inspire inclusivity and unity-in-diversity through his work. It is underpinned by the overarching philosophy of Black Imagination and the continual imbuement of Black representation within fashion, luxury and beyond. Shot in London, the campaign lends its platform to young creative talent from across the arts, featuring the likes of British actor Michael Ward and Ghanaian model Ottawa Kwami as part of its cast.     The collection studies the anthropology of the suit and the reprogramming of traditional dress codes. Virgil Abloh investigates the lifelong relationship formed by adolescent and young men with shirting and suiting in a material and gurative exercise in freedom, presented within the familiar constrictions of tailoring. The rm symbol of convention, trade and success, the tapered silhouette departs its corporate comfort zone. Twisted and turned, the dress codes of an old world are neutralised, re-appropriated and embraced for a progressive joie de vivre.   Black Imagination: The transformative process of rethinking and overturning the inherited and often unconscious expectations tied to Black identities through history, and creating an encouraging Black consciousness for the present and the future.     The utopian idea of ‘Heaven on Earth’ creates the framework for the Louis Vuitton Fall-Winter 2020 Men’s campaign. Photographed by Tim Walker, the images widen the collection’s surrealist lens through the metaphorical language of clouds. Applying his ongoing premise of Boyhood – seeing the world through the unspoiled eyes of a child – Men’s Artistic Director Virgil Abloh employs clouds as a symbol of freedom, unity and peace. Evading constraint, territory and possession, they are dreamlike bodies oating across a sky observed universally across borders and beliefs. The title of the Fall-Winter 2020 collection, ‘Heaven on Earth’ is an image of the core values embodied by Virgil Abloh atLouis Vuitton: a dream world that transcends prejudice as an objective to inspire inclusivity and unity-in-diversity through his work. It is underpinned by the overarching philosophy of Black Imagination and the continual imbuement of Black representation within fashion, luxury and beyond. Shot in London, the campaign lends its platform to young creative talent from across the arts, featuring the likes of British actor Michael Ward and Ghanaian model Ottawa Kwami as part of its cast.     The collection studies the anthropology of the suit and the reprogramming of traditional dress codes.
