Walead Beshty at the Barbican

 

London-born, Los Angeles based artist Walead Beshty has been commissioned by the Barbican to transform The Curve into a show-stopping installation by covering its walls with more than 12,000 cyanotype prints.

 

Each piece of A Partial Disassembling of an Invention Without a Future: Helter-Skelter and Random Notes in Which the Pulleys and Cogwheels Are Lying Around at Random All Over the Workbench was created by using objects from Beshty’s studio, placing them on UV sensitive surfaces and exposing them to light, creating a sea of blues – ranging from cyan to indigo and navy.

 

Each piece is unique due to the unpredictability of sunlight, the surface used and the amount of UV sensitive emulsion applied. Combined with the mix of clearly recognizable everyday objects, mysterious shapes and the distinct intensity of a cyanotype’s blue, the installation merges with the simplistic shape of The Curve.

 

A must-see for lovers of Man Ray’s Rayographs, admirers of unusual creative techniques and those who are drawn to all things blue.

MiH Jeans & ISKO Present Bodycon: A Revolution in Denim. A Fashion Short Film

3 October 2014

To celebrate the launch of our third Bodycon collection, we have shot a fashion short film to capture the spirit of Bodycon denim in motion.

 

This season we welcome the Bodycon Marrakesh, Bodycon 5 Pocket and the Bodycon Zipper Skirt. Using revolutionary fabric technology we have created the most flattering denim yet.

 

Visually inspired by Sam Haskins' monograph, Cowboy Kate & Other Stories, this film has a sense of intimacy and playfulness. In the book, we are introduced to a woman who is, "White as flowers, warm as sunshine, wild as whiskey, and swinging like a lamp”.  We give her a pair of jeans to swing in.

 

 

Videographer: Alex France 
Model: Staz Lindes
Stylish: Zoe James
Music: Flamin’ Groovies "Shake Some Action"

MiH BODYCON AUTUMN/WINTER 2014: The Model behind the Film

3 October 2014

Nastassia ‘Staz’ Lindes is the model and star of our autumn/winter 2014 Bodycon film. West-London born and Californian raised, Staz, 21, is a modern day muse and one of the latest faces of ID Magazine.  

 

Daughter of Dire Straits guitarist Hal, and 70’s model Mary, Staz decided to follow in both her parents’ footsteps. A natural in front of the camera as well as with a guitar, she started her own band, The Paranoids: ‘I play guitar and sing. I’m living my parent’s life all over again!’ 

 

Staz exemplifies the MiH girl; laid back, confident, and fun to be around. On the day of filming, 70’s records were blasting from the stereo with Staz singing along to every song. Watching her dance so naturally to the Flamin’ Groovies, it was only right that ‘Shake Some Action’ should become the theme for AW14 Bodycon.

Charlotte Rampling

30 September 2014

Charlotte Rampling

 

As one of our favourite muses, Charlotte Rampling (actress, model, fashion icon and multi-decade-it-girl) crops up on our moodboards nearly every season with her laid back, low key, just a little bit sexy style.

 

Her career began as a model in the 60s before she broke into film with her role in Georgy Girl in 1966. Not known for taking the easiest (or most-lighthearted) of roles throughout her career, she nevertheless became the epitome of the 60’s spirit; youthful, beautiful and carefree.
