FASHION VS. ART exhibition

4 March – 21 May & 25 May – 6 August2017 Location: SCHUNCK* Glaspaleis, Vitrine 

A multidisciplinary exhibition that questions the relationship between fashion and art. Curated by FASHIONCLASH and organized in collaboration with SCHUNCK*.

Fashion occupies a prominent position in our contemporary culture and is one of the largest industries in the world. But is it art?
The status of fashion within the art sphere is an everlasting subject of debate. There are legendary designers who identified themselves as artists such as Elsa Schiaparelli, who declared in her autobiography that she considers fashion design not as “a profession, but as an art.” Nowadays many prominent designers such as Martin Margiela, Miuccia Prada, Karl Lagerfeld and Marc Jacobs reject this statement.

Within the academic sphere and the world of young designers there are many examples of cross-overs with art and autonomous approaches to fashion as a form of art. The multidisciplinary FASHION VS. ART exhibition displays a selection of work by fashion designers who in their own practice question and challenge the boundaries of fashion as a form of art. With their playful and innovative approach to fashion they stimulate our imaginary world and question our perception. Ask yourself: Is it art or is it fashion?

The ‘clash’ in FASHIONCLASH represents the encounter between cultures, artistic disciplines, audience and fashion. FASHIONCLASH believes that the art of fashion can stimulate critical debate about the role of fashion within our society and the world of art.
FASHIONCLASH presents the art of fashion not only by scouting outspoken avant-garde designers and providing a platform for upcoming talent, but also by organizing cross-over projects such as the CLASH project. Since the first edition in 2009 the CLASH Project challenges every year ten artists and designers from different artistic disciplines (all non-fashion) to transform their practice, both materially and conceptually, into a ‘wearable’ fashion outfit, that can be presented on the catwalk during FASHIONCLASH Festival. The perfect opportunity for creative minds to step out of their comfort zone, to play and experiment!

Angus Chiang FW 2017

Influenced by the 90's electronic music style and hip-hop culture, Jerry Lo (also known as DJ Jerry), who was a celebrity student at that time, brought American pop culture to Taiwan by dressing boldly and innovatively.
With his multi-colored hair and vibrant image, DJ Jerry became a pop culture icon. Because of the celebrity student cultural influence, idols and celebrities would alter their uniforms to add pop culture elements into their dress style; and that is the soul and spirit of this season’s design collection. Integrating the school uniforms and school supplies of the 90s, and adding the vibrant popular vibe of 90s colors, a distinctive “School Days” style is created by ANGUS CHIANG.

Menswear Fall 2017 Trends

                                        Let it hang!
                          Extreme sleeves, oversized silhouettes
Juun J.
The menswear shows for fall 2017 have been presented it can be concluded that the democratisation of fashion is an ongoing with streetwear dominating in almost all proposals. The easygoing street vibe is expressed in oversized silhouettes with baggy trousers, long scarfs, knitted sweaters, long sleeves etc. Sweaters are the new blazers. In particular striking to notice the extreme tailoring that contains extra large sleeves, hiding the hands completely. The silhoutte is so relaxed that it looks like like the body is just carrying the garments like it fall on the body by accident. The skinny fit seems to have departed for good.
Here is a selection from shows from London and Paris.

Raf Simons's Calvin Klein Campaign

American Classics, the first Calvin Klein campaign under direction of Raf Simons

It's been six months since the announcement that designer Raf Simons was taking over the American brand Calvin Klein. Raf Simons overhauls Calvin Klein’s Logo and with the first campaign creates a new spirit for the iconic underwear. With a series of eight images, shot by Willy Vanderperre, art takes precedence over clothing, with models wearing simple yet iconic Calvin Klein pieces—jeans, white T-shirts, briefs—while large-scale artworks by iconic American artists loom in the background. Simons is a well-known art lover, so it makes sense that he'd frame his models with pieces by Richard Prince, Sterling Ruby, and Andy Warhol.
The brands logo has been restyled too, thanks to art director and graphic designer Peter Saville (the mastermind behind the iconic album artwork of groups like New Order and Joy Division).

MOONLIGHT

MOONLIGHT chronicles the life of a young black man from childhood to adulthood as he navigates the dangers of drugs and violence in a rough neighborhood of Miami.
 MOONLIGHT has won the Golden Globe for best picture (drama) and is nominated for eight Academy Awards.

Bullied at school and beaten down by a harsh home life, Chiron risks becoming a statistic: another black man dominated and ultimately destroyed by the system. Despite his small stature and taciturn nature, Chiron is a survivor, and, as he grows, it becomes clear that his real battle isn't even on the streets. It's an internal one: reckoning with his complex love for his best friend.

MOONLIGHT defies coming-of-age conventions. Instead of offering a clear progression of time, director Barry Jenkins plunges us into an atmospheric subjectivity, an impressionistic vision of Chiron's psyche in which sensuality, pain, and unhealed wounds take centre stage with staggering power.

TRINHBECX at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Amsterdam

"The AW17 collection is a playful collage or our shared interest. A combination of various elements from vintage cycling shirts, liquorish, Alessandro Mendini’s special chair, medieval costumes and 2000’s pop music videos.
By creating irrelevant shapes and seams we want to question the line between necessity and ornamental, therefore aiming for a playful and bold image as a reaction to our previous work to develop our signature.
This collection contains our characteristic traits such as; graphic elements, an assemblage of materials and straight forward silhouettes.

Raf Simons loves New York

Raf Simons show was the marquee event of New York Men's Fashion Week. The Belgian designer, formerly of Dior, soon to debut with Calvin Klein, showed his own, eponymous menswear label for the first time in New York. With his 'I Love NY' collection he showed love for New York and expressed on the current political situation that made him think about the potential of fashion as a means of social reaction or rebellion. He mentioned thoughts of punk culture in the ‘70s.

 “I wanted to go back and remember what it was like at the beginning, and combine it with the experience I am having now,” said Simons, now making his home in New York. “So it’s a fresh young attraction to the city, combined with what’s happening now. Yes, of course the political situation.”

Das Leben am Haverkamp

Gino Anthonisse
Das Leben am Haverkamp, a collective of four fashion designers is one of the hottest initiative in the Netherlands.
Anouk van Klaveren (1991), Christa van der Meer (1988), Dewi Bekker (1990) and Gino Anthonisse (1988) – joined forces and formed the collective Das Leben am Haverkamp after graduating from the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague. Their unconventional approach to design and fashion results in thought-provoking, unpolished work, often inspired by alter egos, boyhood and floral curtains. New, uncharted territory is explored during the inventive performances and presentations of Das Leben am Haverkamp. All the members have their individual label, and present it collectively.
