Lingerie of Death

Charles Inottum's new book, The Visible Skeleton, makes an interesting parallel between lingerie and bones.

Women, according to this controversial author, like to wear corsets, garters and stockings to mimick an exoskeleton.

The theory says that, instead of weapons of seduction, the female body seeks protection through the visual 

metaphor of death. The book, soon after release last month, created an uproar of…

VSP = VERY SPECIAL PEOPLE

VSP are more important than the Very Important People. At least at my eyes. They are stronger, with more positivity and a dignity that lack in many of us. I wanted to post this pictures because they are talking about a firm which added some aesthetic value to prosthetic limbs.

Prosthetic…

NATURE

Dear Envy Friends,

I recently received a book from a dear friend who works up in the Italian Alps as a lumberjack. The book's title is "Nature", by Ralph Waldo Emerson, and it was written in 1836. I am pretty sure every person living in America knows or at least heard about this writer, thinker and philosopher who, for some reasons,…

...AND TO DUST THOU SHALT RETURN

Dark jewellery, along with dark tattooes, dark beer and dancing in the dark, is cool again.

Even if you are not in this sort of things, dark jewellery comes up with a message that goes beyond the underground visual jargon of a cynical, suburban teenager.

SUPERSMILE

Ben Hassett's photos propose the old tune of the tortured model. How far the artist can push and up to which limit a muse should bear, in the creative partnership of an impactful image?

PHOTOGRAPHY IS THE FUEL OF FASHION

Hisaji Hara mixes two media: photography and painting, using the former as a tribute to the latter. Phtography, in Hara's work, goes back to a slower portrait, meticolously reconstructing every element of the metaphysical composition, and with a particular freedom of formal interpretation. In this case, Balthus' work is brought to life in its dense atmosphere, enriched by a more articulated space (the bookshelf, the window, the…

Lisa Nilsson is producing wonderful paper quills which can be seen as a foreplay in fashion production, since every dress is born from paper and also because the flesh dresses our bones and our skin, like the outer, ultimate layer of a human onion, is giving us appearance before any garment or fabric whatsoever.

Paper should be used more often in concept fashion, as an economic but incredibily adaptable medium for…

ALTERNATIVE PHOTOGRAPHY by Brandpowder

A new line of cameras for looking at the world of fashion from a different angle.

The Digifukk cameras allow you to record reality the way brain works, with a certain degree of unaccurateness.

Many artists have been shifting to this new trend, producing a…
