Two decades ago, when I first saw several images taken by a then unknown artist David LaChapelle (he was more of an artist than a photographer), I felt like being hit on the head with a mallet. I’ve recently felt the same way seeing some images and a video taken by Clayton James Cubitt a.k.a. Siege. And his mallet is maybe even bigger…
Here is the profile of an extremely talented artist in Brooklyn.

The much anticipated exhibition organized by Chanel in an unusual museum designed by Zaha Hadid opens in Hong Kong today. Visit the website, it’s simply awesome.

This is not new… the previous post just reminded me of it.
And there are three good reasons for this to be a post:
1. Rendering – mesmerizingly beautiful !
2. Zaha Hadid – I’m not a big fan of her architecture but have a deep respect for a woman who thrive in a field dominated by men.
3. “Je veux être de ce qui arrive” – I love this quote by Coco Chanel.
The world tour starts on 02/27/08 from Hong Kong and travels to Tokyo, New York, London, Moscow and Paris.

I had been skeptical about Dyson. But I ordered one anyway. I thought I made a mistake when I opened the box and saw the design right in front of me. I still don’t appreciate the way my Dyson looks but like the power and the ease of getting rid of the dust inside. What I like most about Dyson (no matter how much I dislike the design) is the fact that I can feel one man’s obsession and ego in a consumer product like a vacuum cleaner. It’s just a vacuum cleaner, for God’s sake, but it is compelling !
Dai Fujiwara, the creative director of Issey Miyake, must have been interested in Dyson’s vacuum cleaners for a similar reason, and thus ended up contacting the creator to collaborate. James Dyson created a whirlwind display for the runway of Issey Miyake’s Spring-Summer 2008 ready to wear collection in Paris last Tuesday. Here is an interview with James Dyson on this esoteric collaboration.
