Surely an intriguing video from BKRW.  Enjoy!

Buff Monster presents:  “Beyond the Pink”

The time is here once again for a new solo show at Corey Helford Gallery. Sweet!!! This is my fourth one with those guys and I’m looking forward to it! I’ve been mostly sequestered away in my “spacious subterranean studio” and the time to surface is almost here.

The opening is next Saturday, the 4th, from 7-10pm.

Cool right? As a toy collector, I believe this would be a sweet addition to a collection, purchases can be made here.

ptreacy

Philip Treacy is one of the most extraordinary hat designers of our time. His handmade creations are a feat of craftsmanship, displaying an imagination so fervent that seemingly impossible dreams are realised through his designs. As well as being awarded the prestigious title of British Accessory Designer of the year five times, in 2007 Treacy received an OBE for his services to the British fashion industry. AnOther Magazine caught up with him to talk about the things in life that make his heart beat a little faster.

You have said that you dislike the term “milliner.” Why is that?

Because its not a true reflection of what I do. It’s an 18th- century term when a milliner was someone who decorated dresses a la Marie Antoinette. I believe that I am a hat designer, not a milliner.

Could you describe for us how the hats are made?

I start with a drawing, I then make a mock-up of the shape in 3D in the material, and then I send the shape to a block maker in Paris and he carves it in wood and then we make the hat on that. Everything’s made by hand, and so it’s couture manufacturing; someone using their brain to make that hat flow or come to life rather than stamping it out.

What is the quality that makes the hat come to life?

The personality of the wearer and the hat makes the hat. I always design the hat with the wearer in mind, otherwise it’s an inanimate object. A lady who works in my shop was referring to the customers and what they were looking for, and she said to me, “You sell dreams.” It’s a hat, but a hat’s a dream. It’s an accessory of rebellion in a way.

Why do you think that hats are a form of rebellion?

Well at one time a hat was a conformist accessory, and today it’s a form of rebellion, so the hat hasn’t changed, but the meaning of wearing a hat has. In the 60s hair became hats, so it became trendy at that moment to not wear a hat, but the hat, I believe, could be the future. It is an expression of individuality, and we’re becoming more confident and adventurous. Wearing a hat is fun; people have a good time when they’re wearing a hat.

Arguably its most impressive opening to date, COMME des GARCONS welcomes a new flagship location in the heart of Seoul. The new retail venture for the Japanese brand plays home to a wide array of popular product, showcased within seven floors of contemporary goodness. Aside from just the retail portion, COMME des GARCONS Seoul also houses the brand’s SIX Gallery, Rose Bakery, and a COMME des GARCONS PLAY BOX. If in town, be sure to swing by! I will be popping in when I go to Korea in April!

Hello!

It’s been a long while–lots has happened since you heard from me last! Ferris and I are happy to say that our son is happy, healthy, and now one year old. We had a show in Tokyo, and a show is about to open in New York. The work in out and about will be on sale through Giant Robot’s New York website soon after the opening, which I’ll be attending, this coming Saturday. See below for a lot more detail.

Ferris and I have a new site which shows our collaborative work to date: kefeinc.com, and where we plan to have exclusive work for purchase online very soon. kellytunstall.com and ferrisplock.com will still be kept updated; you can also find me on facebook and twitter for the very latest.

Ferris’s current show at the Shooting Gallery (SF) is up through Saturday the 4th. It’s incredible work.

We return to our collaborative work for Fecal Face’s Tenth Anniversary show; it’s a great honor to be invited. Other artists include Jim Houser, Faile and Shepherd Fairey.
