Museums are actually one of my most favorite places. It’s super quiet and relaxed and you get inspired by all the art around you. And sometimes I just like to sit there and watch people. I know I am so weird. However taking that museum aspect and transforming it into a whole collection is basically (actually this is just a super simple way to explain it) what This Is Not Clothing did for Collection III
This Is Not Clothing is a luxury brand and consumerist art movement. Artist Jam Sutton celebrates and reinvents masterful artworks, juxtaposing contemporary culture and fine art. The clothing is considered a wearable canvas, featuring original bespoke artwork prints onto ethical fair trade cotton.
Collection III takes inspiration from classical sculpture and modern protest. The collection features a series of digital sculptures created by Jam Sutton using 3d scanning techniques of real-life models. (Digital sculpture models: Jack Beran, Emelie Stenman & Joel Hicks. 3D scanning technology provided by Ten24. 3D data refinement by Ten24, additional modelling by Ben Douglas.) “It’s a way for me to exhibit my artwork in a way that’s different to a gallery or museum setting“, says Jam Sutton.

And then this right here happened.
And I am not ready for it (actually my bank account is not ready for it):
DOM SEBASTIAN gave us a little sneak preview of his new collection named “Virtual Nostalgia” and it looks soooo good. And it’s coming soon. I don’t know exactly when, but I am sure that my bank account will still not be ready… However one day I will walk down the streets with Dom Sebastian stuff on my skin.
In the meantime check out this brutally beautiful pics:
I was mesmerized by Chapter 1, but Chapter 2 is just as dope.
For the cold season MISBHV goes back to where they re from in an effort to bridge the gap between the grainy Eastern Block nostalgia and the energy of New Europe. Instead of shooting a studio lookbook the brand is taking it to the streets of cities they love – Paris, Warsaw and New York! And offering shearling coats, wool coats, biker jackets, all 3M reflective jackets alongside suede and neoprene pieces, this collection is in my opinion one of the best ones yet.
And I am ready for a Chapter 3: New York!

I know it’s fall and only because it started raining. Like Hamburg is known for clouds and rain and the weather is really fucked up…It’s literally raining and cloudy all the time, which makes me think about wearing my blue rubber boots all the time. But this city is not ready for a me wearing them. But of course it’s acceptable for every female in this city to wear her Hunter boots. But what really surprised me about this brand is that there is more behind it than just boots.
But who would have thought that there is a fashion world outside of the Hunter boots? I really didn’t know and that’s why I am even more excited, because the SS15 collection is dope and perfectly made for living in a city like Hamburg.
For SS15, Hunter Original explores contradictions born out of a quintessential British sense of eccentricity. At the centre of this story is the Dazzle, a pioneering technique that worked on this same notion of contrast. Complex patterns were painted onto ships, creating a camouflage that made them even more visible, but confused the viewer through optical illusion. Hunter Original introduces this concept through pattern and print in the collection. Though always evolving, the brand remains true to the Original boot, continuing to source its design language from its 28-part construction. So good!
This collections should have reached me a long time ago. Just saying.

Do you know that feeling when you hear a name all the time, but you don’t know what it’s about? You just hear that name over and over again and you are eager to find out. Who is Jessica Walsh? I had sleepless nights and after days of searching and researching I finally got the answer (thank you Fucking Young!):
Te 24 year old British born menswear designer Jessica Walsh graduated with her BA from the University of Westminster in London before progressing straight to the MFA program at Parsons. During the 4 year program at Westminster she studied both mens and womenswear design and she did internships in the fashion capitols London, New York and Amsterdam.
Fucking Young says about her collection:
Her Spring/Summer 2015 collection represents a feeling that she want to evoke, and the relationships of groups of friends – in particular boys. “There’s almost a sense of conjecture when anyone looks at a group of boys and the roles they each play to one another, this is something that has fascinated me for a while. So from this idea and wanting to identify the research just developed really quickly. This idea of bruising the fabric to create an intimate touch. The series of photographs of slants of the body that are printed on the jersey t-shirts. The interviews that created the huge geometric patterns that are again translated into jackets. I think these are just some of the ideas that I played with as there was so much research developed, but these strongly represent a sense of colour and volume that are important to the menswear that I want to produce.”
