Off Kilter

April 14th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

METAL Magazine no. 33 resides at a frequency somewhere between installation art and the fashion image, deliberately acting off-kilter in its latest issue. Metal’s Spring/Summer issue has still-lifes dueling with oft midway moments that serve up a slate of fresh talent and makers. The cover story features a banged Stina Rapp Wastenson photographed by Mari Sarai. Check out the exclusive preview before the issue is out!

Seeing Spots

May 30th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

When Haider Ackermann filled his S/S13 runway with transparent creations emblazoned with black and white dots, it seemed like an unusual move. Polka dots are a fashion standard dating back years, but the diminutive patterns are more often associated with the prim styles of the 1950s than with the kinds of cutting-edge wares favored on Paris’ runways. The designer so known for his innovative use of lush, saturated color was showing another side, taking one of the most uncool of motifs and making it feel new.

In keeping with the current craze for all things graphic, stylists have embraced the versatility of these simple circles, working Ackermann’s creations into a variety of editorials. On occasion the interpretations don’t veer too far from the runway approach (fashion abides by the ‘if it ain’t broke don’t fix it’ mantra whenever it can) but the excitement comes when the spots are complimented by clashing patterns to create a dynamic visual treat. Whether it is layering in another of Ackermann’s prints from S/S or adding a bold kimono for interest, the real fun lies in the mix which offers stylists an opportunity to show their creativity.
