Here’s a couple apropos tutorials for this week.  Actually, I have one of my own as well to add.  Hopefully will get to it this weekend, just need some good pics.  Both blog sources Outsapop and Monoxious are awesome, i’m a long time fan.  I think with some twerking both of these diy ideas could turn into something spectacular. Tip: East Bay Center for Creative Reuse or other bulk store.  New=way to expensive.

Patience my little grasshoppas, these posts take a while. After taking a pole of my jungle buddies, I’ve come up with a list of characteristic clothing items worn by old school junglists. While techno snobs look serious, junglists look tuff. As always post a comment with any additional suggestions.  Always looking for more/better pics.  Thanks to Toronto Jungle for keeping their shit online and in a relatively accessible format. 1. Cargo pants/capris/skirts (eg. UFOs) 2. Crack […]

Lisa Shahno pink leather geometric dress

I have no idea how I came upon Russian designer Lisa Shahno, but I’m twitter-pated.  Like with Wipprecht she is able to create futuristic clothing that is aesthetically successful (ie. it looks good), interesting, unique, while maintaining a conceptually complicated theme throughout her collections.  These work as art installations, or you could see them on the streets of Harajuku, on Bjork or Florence Welch (maybe Ginnifer Goodwin if she’s feeling frisky), or at a more theatrical […]

Following last weeks 3D printed dresses, Sandra Backlund similarly creates 3D textiles using knitting techniques.  Pretty much, it looks like HR Giger did a bunch of K and picked up a pair of knitting needles.  No freaking clue how on earth she made these.  Unreal.  Check out her website for more.
