SYDNEY’S RECOMMENDED: HELMUT LANG @ SPERONE WESTWATER

Install_3_copy6 Install_8_copy3From January 8 – February 21, 2015, Sperone Westwater is pleased to present an exhibition of sculptures by Helmut Lang, the artist’s first New York gallery solo show.

Lang disappointedly left the fashion world and notoriously took the remainder of his fashion archives which consisted of 6,000 to 8,000 items of clothing, and shredded them up for his art.

“I don’t like to throw things away,” he says, “but I also have the ability to end chapters of my life”.

“That all got shredded with an industrial shredder,” he says, “without hierarchy.”

Showing for a limited time at the Sperone Westwater gallery in New York, Lang’s first art show features sculptures made out of repurposed fabric, zippers, and other materials that were salvaged from a fire at his studio in 2010.

MARNI SPRING SUMMER 2015 COLLECTION PREVIEW

Marni-Men-Spring-Summer-2015-Collection-014 Marni-Men-Spring-Summer-2015-Collection-019

One collection we always look forward to is Marni.  Having worked with the brand for almost 6 years, we are huge fans of their structural and elegant designs. Their innovative and technical approach to menswear always surprises us with how they translate highly technical fabrics, construction and experimentation into pieces that are extremely wearable and integrate into any wardrobe.

Marni debuted its spring summer 2015 collection with French model Vincent LaCrocq as its campaign face.  Vincent personifies the collection and the brand – a theme of the modern, contemporary (and probably artistic) man.

The new collection features a slew of rich colours, architectural separates and colour blocking.

Coming soon.
