The First Monday in May

D. 8. december 2016 fik den stjernespækkede modefilm ’The First Monday In May’, dansk biografpremiere. Filmen stiller skarpt på The Metropolitan Museum of Arts fundraising arrangementet ”The Met Gala”, der altid afholdes den første mandag i maj, og med det prominente gallaevent som springbræt afsøger ’The First Monday In May’ grænsen mellem mode og kunst, og stiller spørgsmålet, om mode kan være mere og andet end et spørgsmål om kroner og øre.

At opleve det skønne // To experience the beautiful

Image: TeaterFÅR302
 ”Lyst er at opleve det skønne mens man selv er uskøn”, FashionFladen blev inviteret til premiere på Teater Får302s opsætning af den bornholmske teatergrub Teater Undreværkets forestilling om kvindens lyst. Alene på scenen stod scenekunstner Helene Høm og på humoristisk og original vis, gav hun sit publikum en oplevelse af den kvindelige seksualitet, som på én gang er gemt væk bag vægge og dyner men på den anden side er konstant eksponeret med læbestifter, høje hæle og langt, lækkert hår (som i Helene Høms tilfælde ind imellem kom i vejen for hendes forsøg på at tage læbestift på – til stor morskab for publikum.)

Teateret skriver selv om ”Lyst”, at stykket hverken byder på porno, provokunst eller publikumsinddragelse, men er en anderledes visuel oplevelse på grænsen mellem teater og billedkunst. Og ifølge Helene Høm har teater og billedkunst det tilfælles, at de begge kan formulere noget af det, der går udenom sproget. Og Helene Høms tydelige kropssprog og modige fremtoning på scenen talte da også for selv.
”Lyst” varer 45 minutter og kan opleves indtil d. 19. november. Så her fra lyder det: Gør dig selv den tjeneste at tage en aften i det lille, hyggelige teater på Toldbodgade og oplev en velovervejet fortolkning af kvindens lyst i lys luge! Find billetter til “Lyst” her.
///

The play ”Lyst” can these days be experienced at the small Copenhagen based theater “Teater FÅR302” and the play is a sophisticated and humoristic investigation of female sexuality. It is the theatrical companyTeater Undreværket” from the island of Bornholm which has visited Copenhagen and given the Copenhageners the opportunity to experience stage performer Helene Høm’s interpretation of the female lust. The play is neither pornographic nor provocative. Rather it is a visual experience that questions the boundaries between art and theater.

“Lyst” can be experienced until November 19 at Teater Får302 situated in Toldbodgade, Copenhagen. Find your ticket here.

Christopher Bailey’s “Tales of Thomas Burberry” is here!

Image: Vogue


Fra 1.verdenskrigs skyttegrave til banebrydende tiltage i modens globale centrum. Siden sin fødsel i 1856 har britiske Burberry slået tonen an i engelsk mode og de ikoniske Burberry-tern samt husets signatur; trenchcoaten hænger uløseligt sammen med det, vi i dag definerer som huset Burberry.


I dag d. 1. november er Burberrys entreprenante chefdesigner Christopher Bailey klar med en kortfilm, der én gang for alle slår fast, at Burberry er mere end ”blot” de velkendte tern og ditto trenchcoat. Husets historie går nemlig tilbage til 1856 da skrædderen Thomas Burberry åbnede sin første forretning, og selvom fænomenet ”PR” sandsynligvis endnu ikke var opfundet på daværende tidspunkt, havde Thomas Burberry sans for netop det og klædte tidens prominente gentlemen Lord Kitchener og Lord Baden-Powell på, hvilket fik hans forretning til at vækste, og med tiden blev den til huset Burberry.


Da 1. verdenskrig brød ud i 1914, var det Thomas Burberry, som fik til opgave at klæde de britiske soldater på til de berygtede skyttegrave – deraf fik trenchcoaten sit navn; ”trench” betyder nemlig ”skyttegrav” på engelsk.

Den flotte film om Burberrys historie Tales of Thomas Burberry er instrueret af Academy Award vindende instruktør Asif Kapadia. Irske Domhnall Gleeson spiller rollen som den unge Thomas Burberry, og Sienna Miller har rollen som Burberrys første forelskelse.      
I forbindelse med filmens lancering udtaler Christopher Bailey:

“The film we have made is a brief glimpse inspired by Thomas Burberry’s full and extraordinary life, which threaded its way through the history of the twentieth century in all its tumultuous highs and lows. His spirit and his vision are still at the heart of everything we do at Burberry today.”

Today creative director of Burberry Christopher Bailey reveals Burberry’s holiday film Tales of Thomas Burberry directed by Academy Award winning Asif Kapadia and starring Irish Domhnall Gleeson as a young Thomas Burberry and Sienna Miller as Thomas’ first love.

And there is a lot to tell about the British brand – The history of Burberry goes back to 1856 when Thomas Burberry started his own tailoring business in England. Thomas Burberry managed to arise knowledge of his brand and he dressed prominent British gentlemen of the time. Burberry became a widely known name and when The First World War broke out in 1914 Thomas Burberry was given the task to dress the British soldiers for what was awaiting them. The trench coat was introduced and thus Burberry can be said to literally have a bloody history.     


In relation to the reveal of Tales of Thomas Burberry Christopher Bailey tells Vogue:

“The film we have made is a brief glimpse inspired by Thomas Burberry’s full and extraordinary life, which threaded its way through the history of the twentieth century in all its tumultuous highs and lows. His spirit and his vision are still at the heart of everything we do at Burberry today.”

“Elvis Style” en hyldest til Elvis’ indflydelse på moden…

Images: PR


Her på FashionFladen er vi, inspireret af mode- og designjournalist Zoey Goto, gået i det nørdede hjørne. I over ti år har Zoey nemlig fulgt i Elvis’ fodspor og udforsket hans stil, og det er der kommet bogen Elvis Style ud af.

Elvis’ indflydelse på (især) herremode er ikke til at tage fejl af. Med sine farverige og glamourøse jakkesæt, pomade hår og amerikanerbiler indtog han den ultimative plads som teenage-idol i den vestlige verden, og Zoey Goto har da også talt med eksperter som Sex and The City stylist Patricia Fields og Academy Award vindende designer Mark Bridges om Elvis ’ indflydelse på mode og popkultur.     

Alex Bilmes, redaktør på det engelske mandemagasin Esquire fortæller i forbindelse med udgivelsen, at Elvis’ indflydelse på mændenes garderobe er uovertruffen, og at den stadig er tilstede i det svært definerbare rum, hvor den preppy stil møder et rocket men figursyet ”work wear” look.

I den 175-sider lange bog tages du med på en rejse i Elvis stilunivers af vilde frisurer, tøj, biler og interiør der inspirerede 1950’ernes unge – og stadig gør det. Tjek den ud på Amazone.com!
///

Inspired by fashion and design journalist Zoey Goto we are finding ourselves in the nerdy corner of fashion. We are inspired – and fascinated by Zoey who for more than a decade has worked on the book and conducted research trips taking her from an imitation of Graceland in the suburbs of Denmark, to The Deep South where she met Elvis’ tailor.

To gain insights into Elvis’ influence on contemporary design culture – from pop stars and high-end fashion houses Zoey also spoke to a number of leading design experts to shed fresh light on Elvis’ design choices and influence. These include Sex & the City stylist Patricia Fields and Academy Award winning costume designer Mark Bridges.

Being a male and challenging the boundaries of masculine wardrobe Elvis especially left his footprint on menswear. Alex Bilmes editor of the British magazine Esquire is an expert on the topic and he says:

‘Elvis’s influence on men’s style is incalculable. You can still see his legacy everywhere – that indefinable but instantly recognizable point where preppy meets rocker meets work-wear meets tailoring’.

Jean Phillip SS17: The male anno 2016

Images: Jean Phillip / PR

Designer Jean Phillip præsenterede sin SS17 kollektion for en lille skare af særligt udvalgte indkøbere og presse. Modeshowet i sin klassiske form (stort catwalk show med modepresse og indkøbere på første række) er i disse tider under forandring, og Jean Phillips valg afspejler tidens trend – med de muligheder for eksponering internettet og de sociale medier giver, skal der meget til, før det kan betale sig at afholde de (meget) dyre shows. Desuden fortæller Jean Phillip, at han fik lov til at vise kollektionen på den udvalgte location, netop fordi antallet af gæster var begrænset til de få vigtigste. 

Jean Phillip har et moderne take på menswear, og vi kan spore den moderne mand i hans designs: På hjemmefronten må han gerne dyrke sine feminine sider, men skal samtidig vise autoritet. Han må gerne træne og være en sports mand, og han må gerne gå op i mode, dog uden at skille sig alt for meget ud fra mængden… det er ikke let! Jean Phillip viser mandens feminine dobbelthed i sine snit: V-halse, ankelbukser og ærmeløse toppe. Dog uden at gå på kompromis med den maskuline attitude som vi særligt lægger mærke til i Jean Phillips brug af referencer til uniformen – the devil lies in the detail! Et favoritstyle fra Jean Phillips SS17 kollektion er bomberjakken der med få virkemidler har fået et kreativt tvist. 

///

Menswear designer Jean Phillip showed his SS17 collection to a carefully selected crowd of buyers and press. Many designers are choosing that path as one can reach a wide audience through means of online and sociale media exposure. Jean Phillip tells FashionFladen that he had the opportunity to showcase the collection in the beautiful Copenhagen building because his number of invited guests was as limited as possible. 

Jean Phillip has a modern take on menswear that reflects society’s expectations to the modern male: He has to fullfield the “female role” in the domestic settings yet his partner want him to show authority. He should go to the gym and care about fashion – but not so much that he becomes “the fashion gig” of the crowd. It is not easy but Jean Phillip proves that it is possible. With feminine cuts such as sleeveless tops and v-necks cuttles for the feminine while inspiration from the uniform reflects masculinity – the devil lies in the detail! A favorite style was Jean Phillip’s take on the bomber jacket which had gotten a creative and personal twist.

Bye bye Trailerpark Festival!

For 10. gang er Trailerpark Festival til ende og vender ikke tilbage næste år. Carla Camilla Hjort stiftede festivalen for 10 år siden, og om beslutningen om at stoppe ved 10-års jubilæet fortæller hun: 

Vi tror på, at man altid skal udfordre sig selv og prøve noget nyt og vi vil gerne slutte på toppen, mens kærligheden og passionen er intakt.

Rygtet siger, at Carla Camilla og hendes team brygger på et nyt festivalskoncept. Indtil da vil vi nyde nogle af de kunstnere, der spillede på dette års festival og sende varme tanker til Trailerpark.

Trailerpark Festival 2016 has ended and will not return next year. Carla Camilla Hjort was the woman who decided to set up the festival 10 years ago:

We believe that you always have to challenge yourself and try out new adventures. We wanted to stop at the height of the festival while love and passion were still there. 

She said about the decision. Rumour has it that Carla Camilla and her team are brainstorming on a new festival concept. Until then we are to enjoy some of the artist who played at this year’s Trailerpark Festival.    

M.I.L.K.



About M.I.L.K. Trailerpark Festval writes: M.I.L.K emerged in the international blogosphere with his sun-infused vibes. M.I.L.K. sounds like Scandinavian skinny dipping and has been compared to acts like Jungle and Rhye. 


SLOWES



About SLOWES Trailerpark Festival writes: Slowes is a brand new band and the brainchild of psychedelic-pop duo Jack Kilburn and Anders Hamann. They have just released their first single which were instantly picked up ny international radio. 


Vinnie Who

About Vinnie Who Trailerpark Festival writes: Introducing Vinnie Who would be unnecessary as he has been talk of the town since entering the music scene with his disco vibes in 2010. He has played at Trailerpark Festival no less than five times and this year he is back with his well-known catchy disco energy.

 – Vores interview med Dries Depoorter bringes på engelsk, da korrespondancen med den belgiske kunstner har foregået på dette sprog.  


Belgian artist Dries Depoorter has a mission: Through his arts he wants us to question the constant surveillance we are subjected to – and it might make us feel uncomfortable.
The work Jaywalking can be experienced at this year’s Trailerpark Festival starting today. Here Depoorter invites his audience to a live streaming experience of pedestrians crossing a road at a traffic light. Webcams will blabber whether the pedestrian has crossed the road when he is allowed to or not. Depoorter’s audience can thus press a button if he is caught crossing at red light, which will send an e-mail and a screenshot of the “Jaywalker” directly to the nearest police station.
Would you dare to press the button if finding yourself in front of the work at Trailerpark Festival? We are not sure ourselves but we are certainly curious to get to know more about the artist behind Jaywalking Read the Q&As here!
– In your own words what is Jay Walking about?
Jaywalking is about the future of police automatisation. Is a good that we’re gonna have a fine by just the most simple things like walking through a red light? 
This piece is also about surveillance and the tools I can build to make this possible. Most of the time I’m using open source tools. 
For the moment I’m working on a new project called JayWalking Frames. It’s exist out of photo frames of people walking through red lights all over the world captured with my software and using surveillance camera’s. I curate the jaywalking photo’s and put them in Photoframes. If you want to buy them you have to pay the same price as the fine in that country. 
So the money doesn’t go to the police but to me as an artist. Most of the time you pay 50 dollar or each Jaywalking photo frame.  
– Jay Walking is questioning the power of the authorities – is your art a riot against authorities or more the digital age we live in? 
It’s not a riot. It just brings up questions of the time we live in. 

– What are your thoughts about the technologies you use for your work? Taken into consideration that they constantly evolve. 
Technology is my main inspiration. Most of the time it’s a spark for a new project. But I try to be original with these new technologies.  
I don’t feel making a painting because the tool already exists. 


– It seems like your project is to make the things we surround ourselves with – but do not see or think about visible. Is that correctly understood? 
Yes. In a lot of projects I just combine data or technology with sometimes an interesting result. 
– When using all these data as for instance in your work “Tinder In” (one of Drie’s older works that matches a person’s Tinder photos and frames them with the same individual’s LinkedIn profile photo), don’t you think that turns you into some kind of a Big Brother of someone who plays “God” with all us ignorant others? 
It was a choice to make TinderIn a manual process. First I was think to make a script where I combine hundreds combinations of Tinder & LinkedIn pictures. But I think it’s stronger to 
do it manually so I show everyone can do this. That was a choice. 
– Everything about surveillance and online privacy seems invisible to the “normal eye”. Is it with works like yours that we really start to think about it? And are you doing us a favour?
No, I don’t do you a favour. I hope it start raising question. 
– Is your work ethical? Do you feel the need to fight for the knowledge of how much surveillance we actually are being exposed to?
I show what is possible with surveillance and the tools I have. I don’t want to be that artist with the heavy and boring message. 
– If you had lived 100 years ago, what kind of artist would you have been?
Most of my inspiration comes from technology. So I probably did some projects with a phonograph, typewriter or a radio receiver. 

I always wanted to become an inventor when I was young. Sometimes I feel like this.
