Classically cool

The handsome millwork of a built-in corner cabinet inspired the library vibe of this newly redesigned kitchen in the Near West End, pictured above. Forgoing overhead cabinets and the usual decorative kitchen hood – a custom, recessed ceiling ventilation system that operates with a remote control was used in its place – designers Wyndi Carnes and Blaine McDermott of Forge Design Group Create visual interest with a composition of different drawer fronts and brass hardware, a mix of granite and quartzite surfaces, a carved quartzite backsplash, and an antique sunburst mirror. These details give the kitchen a contemporary touch without it being a contemporary kitchen.

Big kitchen

This clean, bright Fan District kitchen was a dark, choppy space before a recent redesign by kitchen and bathroom designer Marvin Daniel, founder of Home KDW. The windows have been extended to join the counters and the walls have been removed to create a chef’s kitchen for the owners, a couple who enjoy both cooking and entertaining. Sleek flat front cabinetry features anodized hardware, while the veined quartzite countertop pattern and grain of the cabinetry’s laminate veneer finish complement each other to add dimension to the contemporary space.

Elegant and serene

Details like a soft enamel finish on the quarter-sawn white oak cabinets, distressed stone-look flooring, and a subtle glass subway tile backsplash give this contemporary Short Pump kitchen an air of serenity. The reality is that her beauty is more than superficial, says designer Allison Stowers of Custom kitchens, who worked closely with the owners, a retired couple, to create their forever kitchen. Considered details—well-placed storage and pull-out drawers, under-cabinet lighting, quartz countertops, and radiant-heated tile flooring—are enhanced by custom design elements such as a slanted peninsula and the sculptural light fixture above. above.

Timeless look

It is a bit more modern. It’s a bit more traditional. To create a kitchen they would both love, designers Kelly Gentry and Alison Raines of Gentry Raines Interior Design gave traditional elements a modern twist with clean lines and an all-white color scheme. The sculptural form of the range hood – inspired by vintage European designs – is balanced by glass-fronted cabinetry accented with classically inspired mullions. Layering painted cabinetry with crisp quartz countertops, a soft mosaic marble backsplash and burnished gold accents, the designers give the kitchen a 2022 outlook while honoring the traditional Windsor Farms home aesthetic of the 1960s. 1930.

Star-crossed lovers or the forbidden romance trope is always a big draw for me as a romance reader – who doesn’t love all that angst of characters who should be together but are separated for Some Big Reason? I also enjoy this trope because while lover-enemies are great, the obstacles of forbidden romance or star-crossed lovers go beyond the personal dynamic between your protagonist and your love interest and usually involve greater reasons for which they shouldn’t – or can’t! – be together. This could be due to family feuds, cultural expectations, or circumstances in the world that put your characters at odds. Being together is often forbidden and frowned upon by other people in their lives, and finding a way to be together is a challenge for the characters.

The biggest inspiration behind this forbidden romance trope is obviously the play Romeo and Juliet, which…spoiler alert, is not a romance. (At least not a romance in terms of how we understand the genre today, which requires a happy ending forever or a happy ending for now.) I decided to focus on contemporary YA books with this trope but which have a happy ending for our couples (the so popular book Frankly in Love by David Yoon is unfortunately out). These picks deal with everything from family secrets to conflicting businesses, from misguided promises to school-wide rivalries. Prepare for all the feelings of angst, secret relationships and introspective journeys!

A Pho Love Story by Loan Le

Cubist abstraction is an art form that many South African artists implement in their practice. This type of artistic creation uses geometric and stylized forms to combine non-objective compositions or produce figurative representations. Initiated by Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque in 1907 and ending with the geometric abstraction of Josef Albers, who died in 1976, the style is extremely broad. A particular characteristic of this movement is the influence of African material culture on the stylization of the figure, clearly visible in abstract figure by Cecil Skotnes (estimates R 7,000 – 9,000) or Ezrom Legae’s Torso (estimates R 4,000 – 6,000).

Abstract Expressionism is a particular term attributed to the new forms of abstract art developed by American artists Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko and Willem de Kooning working in the 1940s and 1950s. It is often characterized by gestural brushstrokes or marks and the impression of spontaneity is evident in the work of George Boys, entitled To touch (estimates R 8,000 – 12,000).

Tachisme is a related term used to describe the non-geometric abstract art that developed in Europe during the same period. The auction features a particular focus on artist Christo Coetzee, who was hugely influenced by the European abstract tachism movement, seen referenced in his work El Cordobes (estimate R 5,000- 7,000), plus additional influences from the Japanese Gutai Art Association, including his work yellow baroque shape (estimates R 80,000 – 120,000) is a striking example.

These styles continue to impact artistic creation in South Africa as contemporary artists continue this trend, visible in the unique geometric compositions of Esther Mahlangu. Untitled (2007) (estimates R 15,000 – 20,000), and Maja Marx black block (estimates R 30,000 – 50,000); the spontaneous markings of Zander Blom in 1.269 [Untitled] (estimates R 40,000 – 60,000); gluing and assembling in White flag (burst) by Julia Rosa Clarke (estimates R 10,000 – 15,000); and meticulously hand-drawn abstract shapes Tone 6 and Tone 9 by Paul Edmunds (each with estimates R 15,000 – 20,000).

To close the sale, Strauss & Co is proud to support established artist Jill Trappler’s latest initiative, The Orange Art Project (OAP).

inspired by tradition

StudioAC unveils a trio of stacked volumes that together take the form of the Everden single-family home in Toronto. The house presents a ‘place of refuge’ for a growing family that is unique to its owners – the architecture is ‘unabashedly contemporary’ while drawing inspiration from the traditional view of ‘home’. The resulting three-storey dwelling therefore reads like a stack of boxes that express the motif of “home” through volumes, openings and through interiors.

a gable roof for all levels

StudioAC architects drew on the familiar gable roof motif as a visual and spatial device throughout his Everden home. The band notes: ‘we were interested in elevating this phenomenon beyond the pattern to a spatial experience that defined a narrative throughout the project.’

While the tallest volume on the third level shows off its gabled roofline, the ground floor cubical box is open with a similar gable extrusion, giving that peaked roofline across the living spaces. shared. The group continues: ‘This combined a planometric and material direction that would emphasize three-dimensional stacking and staggering that plays with the definition between form, space, and pattern..’

studioAC everden house

the thoughtful materiality of house everden

StudioAC organizes its Everden home with flexible material expression that is both impactful and modest. The exterior is wrapped in corrugated iron, a durable, affordable and familiar material. The team elevates this facade through “accurate detailing on levels and parapets to create the illusion of stacked boxes.” Meanwhile, the interior focuses on its peaked ceiling landscape. With such an impactful spatial condition, the material palette allows itself to become secondary, and therefore profitable.

the everden house design

The StudioAC team describes the spirit of the project: ‘The Everden House is a playful yet serious exploration of theme, motif and spatial experience. The project seeks to straddle the fine line between academic and exploratory architecture while remaining livable, usable and timeless.

This has been a trajectory in StudioAC design thinking, particularly in terms of developing a spatial logic that transcends typical expectations and seeks to allow the program to define volume.’

Known as the ‘black bisexual shebeen queen of brixton,’ Pearl Alcock was a Jamaican-born foreign artist who ran underground gay bars and created crucial spaces for the black gay community in Railton Road.

Thirty-five years after her iconic solo exhibition ‘Mood Paintings’ at the 198 Gallery in 1989, a new exhibition will showcase Alcock’s work, not far from where she lived and ran her café and shebeen.

Find out more about the free exhibition at 198 Contemporary Arts & Learning in Railton Road:

Coming Home celebrates the life of Pearl Alcock and explores her legacy in today’s era of social justice, racial equality and the rise of the Black Lives Matter movement. To this end, and to honor the local Brixton hero that she was, part of the gallery space will be converted into a café.

This exhibition is a rare opportunity to experience Alcock’s work, with 46 works of art ranging from abstract paintings, landscapes, figurative drawings and sketches. Full of patterns and movements, this colorful work recalls a life in a different world, perhaps a lost paradise.

Ultimately, Coming Home depicts Alcock’s creative journey of reinventing himself and invites the viewer into his vibrant and intimate subjective realm.

Alcock became an artist by accident at the age of 50. Unable to afford a birthday card for a friend, she made one instead, using magic markers.

This was the start of his creative journey. She began painting and drawing at night by candlelight and produced over 300 works of art; some of which were acquired by collectors Monika Kinley and Victor Musgrave to form part of the Outsider art collection – now offered as part of The Whitworth’s permanent collection.

She gained mainstream recognition in 2005, a year before her death, when she was featured at Tate Britain in their ‘Outsider Art’ exhibition.

Alcock came to the UK from Jamaica in 1958 as part of the Windrush generation. She moved to Brixton and opened a bridal shop on Railton Road.

The basement quickly became a “shebeen” – an unlicensed bar – which became a safe space for the black gay community.

Japan’s discarded kimonos reimagined as casual wear to fit contemporary fashion | fashion trends https://harpmaker.net/japans-discarded-kimonos-reimagined-as-casual-wear-to-fit-contemporary-fashion-fashion-trends/ Mon, 13 Jun 2022 04:12:06 +0000 https://harpmaker.net/japans-discarded-kimonos-reimagined-as-casual-wear-to-fit-contemporary-fashion-fashion-trends/ Vintage kimonos, often considered heirlooms and passed down from generation to generation, are piling up in second-hand markets in Japan as clothes go out of style and the country’s population shrinks.

Vintage kimonos, often considered heirlooms and passed down from generation to generation, are piling up in second-hand markets in Japan as clothes go out of style and the country’s population shrinks. Traditionally, the long, loose garment is wrapped around the body in a series of folds, lifts and fine adjustments in a dressing process that can take 25 minutes or more. Today, designers are repurposing high-quality fabrics from turn-down kimonos to make contemporary outfits more suited to today’s sensibilities and fashions. Transformation is as much an art as it is a science.

“People used to wear kimonos every day and now they don’t because it’s uncomfortable,” says Duni Park, whose Tokyo-based Gallery Shili transforms clothes from Japan and her native South Korea into coveralls, shirts and scarves. “If things are to continue to be used, they must evolve with lifestyles.”

Park, who has been selling her clothes online and in pop-up stores at department stores like Takashimaya for a few years, is part of a circular economy movement that aims to extend the life of products. It’s a trend that even some big retailers are supporting as they use the resale of used clothes to both limit their impact on the climate and attract younger shoppers.

Between 50% and 60% of the 140,000 tonnes of textiles collected through the collection services of H&M Group brands such as H&M, & Other Stories and Weekday have been repurposed and repurposed. The Swedish fashion giant is also the majority shareholder of online second-hand clothing retailer Sellpy. U.S. outdoor apparel retailer Patagonia Inc. allows customers to buy or trade in used clothing and gear through its Worn Wear website and encourages repairs in its stores.

Fabric quality is a key factor in the ability to reuse or reuse garments and many of the garments that are produced in the “fast fashion retail type” have a much shorter life trajectory, according to Bryony. Collins, editor at BloombergNEF. Historically, kimonos were made from materials such as silk, cotton or wool, although newer versions are also available in synthetics.

Kimonos had a life cycle that benefited entire families and communities and lasted for decades or more. Once the clothes were too worn out to be used as clothes, they could be used as cushion covers, then rags or baby diapers before finally being burned and spread on the fields as fertilizer, according to Eisaku Hida, founder of Kimonoya Japan, an online marketplace. .

“Kimonos are extremely environmentally friendly,” said Hida, who often buys her second-hand supplies at auction. “There is no waste.”

On a recent Sunday, Shili Gallery’s Park walked through the stalls of Tokyo’s Oedo Antique Market. Held once every two weeks in an outdoor plaza next to a Shake Shack and across from a Bic Camera, the event is a quiet celebration of gently worn materials and objects, some of which have been used for centuries. .

Park was looking for used materials for his collection. Kimonos, she points out, are usually made from a single roll of Japanese tanmono fabric, a tightly woven fabric about 40 centimeters wide and 12 to 15 meters long, meaning that they are perfectly designed to be reused.

“You need minimal modifications to the tanmono to make a kimono,” says Park. “And when you separate a kimono, it goes right back into the original tanmono fabric.”

The used fabrics Park uses for her clothing line also offer something that brands using virgin materials lack: stories and a connection to the past. Occasionally, Park discovers a fabric representing shunga – a type of Japanese erotic art – which men used to line the inside of their kimonos or wear underneath. The scenes were not meant to be shown in public, and some wearers believed the cloth increased their manhood. “It was very hidden and nobody talked about it, but everyone knew about it,” Park says.

It’s details like this that make his designs more intriguing. Although global consumers are increasingly considering the sustainability of clothing when making purchases, decisions are also deeply influenced by emotional connections.

“There’s so much to do with clothing and fashion that has to do with branding and marketing,” Collins of BNEF said. “But at the end of the day, the way you get people to wear clothes is to make them feel good in them.”
