Featured Article: Shanghai Tang 20th Anniversary Art Collaboration Project


Shanghai Tang celebrates its 20th anniversary as the global curator of Modern Chinese chic with a series of collaborations with visionary creative talents.

Inspired by the beauty of nature, Shanghai Tang released a captivating pop-art short film entitled “A Garden of Vibrant Dreams” that will take you on a mesmerizing journey through a series of six artworks by the talented Shanghai-born artist Jacky Tsai. His recent works include an exquisite large blue and white porcelain egg for Faberge Big Egg Hunt in New York City, which was auctioned in Sotheby’s New York in April 2014.

The mystic spiral made of round artworks imitate a hypnotic fall where one enters a world within a world (mise-en-abime). The original cinematic music by Charlie Nguyen Kim combines sounds of the East with a modern twist.

The six original artworks (Lotus Porcelain, Flying Tiger, Ginger Flower, Carved Dragon, Petrol Rainbow and Mix Landscape) were inspired by the beauty of nature and filled with colourful energy which reflect the optimism of modern China.

Floral Play captures attention with the opening gates of leaves, followed by acrobats and ballerinas dancing on tree branches, among a kaleidoscope of butterflies, forming a surreal universe embracing the vitality of life. The sudden splash of ink introduces the world of peaceful Lotus Porcelain inspired by Chinese porcelain. Carved Dragon grown from Chinese motifs of wiggly tree branches and birds on a glowing red sunset.

The vibrant vegetal universe of Ginger Flower takes you through a tunnel of birds, dragonflies, and koi fish to come together in a picturesque portrait. Petrol Rainbow set in the landscape of an iceberg with dolphins and gold fish and colorful valley. Last but not least, Chinese acrobats and Western performers work together jumping and swinging up in the sky to celebrate the prosperous Chinese New Year on a festive background of Chinese lanterns and dancing lions for Flying Tiger.

The Jacky Tsai x Shanghai Tang collaboration inspired a limited edition capsule collection of apparel and accessories for women and men. These include the traditional qipao dresses, box clutches, cashmere shawls, porcelain dining set, home products, iPad and iPhone cases and even skateboards.

Tamara Mellon Kowboy Karlie 2014 Ad Campaign


Comprising ready-to-wear, accessories, and, of course, shoes, Tamara Mellon‘s new e-commerce site poster girl is Karlie Kloss who takes on the role of Kowboy Karlie, modelling the brand’s signature fringing and leather goods. For Mellon, she is already more than aware of the benefits of having her own e-commerce in house. The images were photographed by Tom Craig.

“I feel that online fashion has changed the industry and I thoroughly embrace it,” she said. “I love social media for that reason as it gives me the opportunity to have an immediate dialogue with my customer.”

It marks a busy year for the entrepreneur, who also published her memoir, In My Shoes, in November- the paperback of which is released this week. With the speed at which she is charging ahead, it won’t be long before the next installment is required. (source)








Kenzo Fall Winter 2014 Ad Campaign


UPDATED JULY 07TH 2014: Added the campaign video by Toilet Paper.

Kenzo was inspired by the universe of David Lynch, who designed the set for the label’s fall collection, for the advertising images for its fall collection, which features models Guinevere Van Seenus and Robert McKinnon in a series of cinematic and unsettling environments.

“We were interested in figuring out ways to evolve the past concepts into something that felt different but still in the spirit of both Kenzo and Toilet Paper. Since the collection was inspired by David Lynch, it was natural for us to incorporate some of the emotions we experience when seeing his work,” said Kenzo creative director Carol Lim.

This marks the third collaboration between Kenzo creative directors Humberto Leon and Carol Lim and Maurizio Cattelan, Pierpaolo Ferrari and Micol Talso of Toilet Paper magazine. (source)
