“Veganism isn’t a goal to attain. It’s the means by which we can attain our goals. Compassion is the goal. Veganism is a way to get there.” Colleen Patrick Goudreau

We designed a holographic catwalk

Our studio designed the world’s first holographic catwalk for a virtual fashion line, all showcased on a real model, during Amsterdam Fashion week in July 2016. With this technology, we mimicked what Google’s Magic Leap will make us experience in the upcoming years. As for the future of fashion, we believe that people buy, throw, and mistreat their clothing because we do not feel connected with the inanimate objects around us. That is the reason why, with this catwalk experience, we made people emphasise with their clothing the way they do with their friends, where we visualised the spirit of the clothing.

Through animism, we gave life to the fashion line of Amber Slooten by adding facial characteristics like mouths and eyes and interactions between the dress and the model. You can find more information about this project on our interview in The Creators Project, and watch the making off of the hologram here.

Launch Healing Prints: P&V Image Collection 2017

Auction Healing Prints — Paris, 29th of June 2016

The way fashion designers launch collections where they showcase the near-future of clothing, our studio yearly launches collection where we showcase the near-future of images. The concept decides for the medium where these images will be shown.
Followed by our artist statement about our devotion to social and planetary justice, we digitally crafted a collection where we made prints and garments that revitalize and celebrate the sacredness of nature. Healing Prints is a collection of rebellious visuals fabricated into unique fashion statements.
Each garment is a chance to spread the contemporary altruistic message of the healing prints, by mixing the aesthetics of high fashion and digital couture.
The collection manifests in different sub-topics, such as Mother Earth, Sexual Healing, Healing from Capitalism, Power To The Earth, Silence and The Emancipation Of Flowers. We made five one off couture pieces, 3 dresses and 2 t-shirts of edition one, which we sold during a special auction performance with Luc Saucier on the evening of June 29 in our studio in Paris. It was a festive event with an enchanting Healing Print relaxation room, a music performance of David Millhouse and abundant raw cacao sniffing.

Silencio Pool Party

Last summer, around this time, Silencio, the renown Parisian night club, designed by David Lynch, opened their doors to a temporary summer house in the south of France. We have been asked to organise a pool party with our Scandal Aqua Collection towels, which were a highly aestheticised, open minded yet critical scenario for the future of political sex scandals. The party started with a champagne breakfast and lasted till very late at night with all the guests in the pool.

Pinar&Viola for IKEA

IKEA commissioned Pınar&Viola to create a collection of prints under their name, to go on a wide variety of IKEA products, as a part of their Limited Print Collection. On 8th of June, during Democratic Design Days in IKEA Headquarters in Almhult, Sweden, the prototypes of the collection were presented to a group of 250 journalists.

IKEA asked Pınar&Viola to create prints that would attract, inspire, and surprise people all over the world. They wanted prints which would make them dream. To respond to IKEA’s wish, P&V created a collection which is an invitation to embrace the stranger, the unknown, the alien. A collection to celebrate similarities and differences. A collection to make people fantasise about social and planetary justice, through mythical animals and creatures. A collection to embrace the other. These themes are embodied in the four worlds: forest creatures, sweet alien, birds and the bees, and Gaudi giraffe.

The collection will be launched worldwide on June 2017. If you wish to know more about this collection don’t hesitate getting in touch with us: amandine@pinar-viola.com

Who’s a fashion victim?

Are you sometimes wondering who made your clothes? The best one to ask this question to is the brand you wear.

More and more people are asking this question to brands via Instagram. This act of raising awareness to the true costs of the clothes we wear is an initiative of Fashionrevolution. They are a global movement that want to help to raise awareness about the (hidden reality) of the fashion industry and celebrate all those involved in creating a more sustainable future.

If you care about the human behind the fashion industry and you want to raise awareness for this you are invited to post a picture of your clothes’ tag and simply ask to @[brand] #whomademyclothes

Privacy Looks

The Desearch Repartement is a group of “desearchers” (as they put it). They use a satirical form of expression to break down into pieces the commodification and camouflaging of human injustices and oppression in our contemporary world. In their work they’re highlighting in various ways the structures/peoples that are holding today’s sociopolitical realities in place. They created full-body suits which are providing anti-recognition to the person who’s wearing it while also displaying the powerful structures/people they are criticising.

The Desearch Repartment initiates exhibitions and workshops around their work, they also produce digital images & videos based on a movement they created, the Essential Happiness Possibility. You can check out their work here, and their blog here.

Lady Zero Waste

Everyday we buy items, use products without thinking the trace it will leave behind. Just the fact that a plastic bottle disappears from our eye sight after 1 minute of usage, does absolutely not mean they are gone for good. In fact, plastic sticks around for between 450 – 1000 years. In less then a century hundreds of millions more tons of plastic are added to the ever-accumulating cauldron of plastic pollution in the world’s oceans, rivers and landscapes. Plastic is causing a huge environmental problem. Can we put an end to this???

Change is possible. Some visionary people are dedicated to take on a plastic-free lifestyle. One leading figure in that movement is the amazing Lauren Singer. She lives a waste free life in New York and spreads her wisdom by documenting her zero waste journey through her blog called Trash is for tossers. Lauren defines Zero Waste as “not to produce any garbage, no sending anything to landfill, no throwing anything in a trash can”. She does recycle and does compost stuff and all other trash (non-disposable, unrecyclable) she produced for 3 years was the size of a small jar!

The highlight of Lauren’s blog is the ultimate list of zero waste alternatives for everyday items, making life easier for the ones who wish to live a waste free life. She even has recipes for things like toothpaste and cleaning products.

On her blog you can learn many other ways how to reduce your trash. You can also check out her TedTalk here and this is her Instagram. Here you can find some more people that kicked plastic out of their life.

Cellphone towers disguised like trees

Discover this photo serie by Robert Voit called New Trees, 2003, based on cellphone towers disguised as trees around the globe (USA, Italy, Portugal, South Korea, UK). Ivo Branislav and Aubrey Trevor Thomes are the creators of this puzzling invention and their first physical tower, made from non-toxic plastics, appeared in Cape Town in 1996. A company called Larson Camouflage built also similar structures for style-sensitive network companies in the American Southwest.
