Invitation Barcelona

Por fin estamos preparados a entrar en el siglo 21 con una visión diferente de una nueva era. Vamos a entrar en un nuevo tiempo que aun está en evolución; El amanecer de la dificultad en distinguir y discernir las direcciones en incubación, esperando a ver salir la luz, nacimiento de una generación impaciente, ansiosa, que el ánimo social nos invita a estar unidos y girar la página hacia una compasión muda por una mentalidad creativa, a actitudes más agradables, más dulces ya un periodo alternativo tranquilizador en política, este clima de espera es excitante y promete una nueva época a las opciones benéficas y variadas, por un estilo de vida sereno en busca de lujo discreto, embellecido de acentos a veces artísticos y opulentos.

El aspecto embrionario de estas nuevas tendencias va a reflejarse en el mundo a través de una lista fabulosa de principios de estilos tranquilizadores y limpios de mimar. La matriz del mundo en espera de un renacimiento.

FETISHISM IN FASHION
by Lidewij Edelkoort
edited by Philip Fimmano

Internationally-renowned trend forecaster Lidewij Edelkoort delves into the world of contemporary fetishism to reveal a daring and instinctive future for style and culture. Fetishism in Fashion investigates topics including the evolution of taste from birth to adulthood, the elevation of shoes through ever-higher heels, the psychology of branding, the effects of infantilism, the power of black, the fetishizing of objects, and our interaction with skin and the body.
Essays and interviews include contributions by Andrea Branzi, Sylvia Chivaratanond, Malu Halasa, Susan Piët, Henk Schiffmacher, Valerie Steele, Faye Toogood and Betony Vernon.

More than fifty fetishes are illustrated by inspiring visuals from Leigh Bowery, Roland Fischer, Pieter Hugo, Erwin Olaf, Jenny Saville, Sølve Sundsbø, Marie Taillefer, Ari Versluis & Ellie Uyttenbroek, Marcel van der Vlugt and Carsten Witte. The boundaries of design are stretched in the work of Iris van Herpen, Bart Hess, Pepe Heykoop, Formafantasma and Alexander McQueen.

Bolder, crazier and more outlandish fashions are on the horizon, making this book a key reference in a new era of experimentation and intense creativity, unveiling the intimate ties that bind us.

Today’s youngest generations are born into a life dominated by being, playing, learning and sleeping with flat screens (TV, PC, Xbox, Pad, Phone and Pod), living in a shadow area between the second and third dimensions which they would like to connect, and between which they strive.
This Pop-Up Generation moves fluidly and easily between 2D and 3D, as though they no longer notice that there is a difference: their brains are trained to see volume in a flat sketch or to discern structure within volume. This is how a more imaginative world will develop, one that offers supple and flowing experiences, a world where the eye and the mind scan images in search of a reality to be found in a two-and-a-half dimension, accumulating layers of two-dimensional matter to produce the illusion of three; letting them pop-up and fall flat in one simple movement of up and down, around and about, back and forth, and moving in unison on the swing of existence.

Published by BIS Publishers, this full-colour book features theoretical essays from Paola Antonelli, Lidewij Edelkoort, Ahmed El Hady, Carla Fernández, Hedwig Heinsman, Martine Naillon and Bruce Sterling.
