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.

P&V prints 4 Koché

Here you see the prints we made for Paris fashion house Koché. The collection was presented during Paris Fashion Week Spring Summer 2016. All the prints are made by us from scratch, every denim hole and piece of sequin is digitally placed piece by piece, creating a true work of digital craftsmanship. Afterwards, the prints were decorated with real pieces of sequin, lace and other couture ornamentation as a three-dimensional extension of the images we designed. This is where digital and craftsman couture collide, giving birth to post-digital couture, a symbiotic life form. You can access the full review and the rest of the collection from here. Click here for an interview with Christelle Kocher (the designer/creative director of the house) and Interview Magazine.
