These trippy videos are designed to entice you to purchase eyewear

Belgian fashion designer Walter Van Beirendonck has paired up with the Russian eyewear company FakbyFak to create fashion videos for the release of his new eyewear line “Toy Glasses.” The three videos are named Brutal Love, Total Liquidity, and Self Destruction. Out Magazine explains that the films are “a demonstration of what would likely happen to our Sims if they were left to their own devices in an artsy sex dungeon with a bunch of acid…Beirendonck’s videos employ the talents of performance artists Maria Forque, Salvia and Liza Keane, and are styled in 3D animations created by visual artists Claudia Maté, Ines Alpha and Jennifer Mehigan. They’re influenced by a combination of ’70s punk subcultures, Alice In Wonderland and bizarre makeup techniques”.

Wonderfully strange and psychedelic, Beirendonck’s films warp the viewer’s reality and urge them to question the nature of their own perception. From Out:

These 3D spaces speak to Walter Van Beirendonck’s interest in utopias—the need to dream in order to not only escape reality but to challenge it. In doing so they ask us to break free from the mind-forged chains of convention we weigh ourselves down with day to day.

Beirendonck’s conceptual ideas behind the film make me think of Timothy Leary’s philosophy that helped define ’70a counterculture; to break away from the rigid conformity that plagues so much of society and to think for oneself.

Nordstrom’s is selling artificially mud-stained jeans that look like they’ve just gotten in from a few hours’ laboring in the yard. The $425 mud isn’t mud: it’s paint.

Details & Care

Heavily distressed medium-blue denim jeans in a comfortable straight-leg fit embody rugged, Americana workwear that’s seen some hard-working action with a crackled, caked-on muddy coating that shows you’re not afraid to get down and dirty.

TwitterFacebook

Glitter is all the rage. We’ve seen beards, roots, eyebrows and even armpits transformed into sparkly creations thanks to a series of glitter trends. 

But, the latest glitter trend involves rubbing glitter all over your derrière. Right…

The “glitter booty” is the brainchild of artist Mia Kennington, who was inspired by the sandy-butt look that goes hand in hand with spending too much time on the beach. Kennington is part of The Gypsy Shrine, a group of glitter artists who host body art pop-ups at festivals

Kennington has been posting photos of her glittery experiments on Instagram

There’s the classic gold glitter look… Read more…

'The Melbourne Jacket' is kinda crazy, but so is Melbourne's weather

TwitterFacebook

The weather in Melbourne, Australia is notoriously erratic — you basically need to carry around your entire wardrobe just to cope.

The morning might start off sunny, but you’ll get caught in the rain at lunch, be sweating by tea time and then freeze on your way home. 

But never fear: There’s a piece of clothing being designed to help you cope with it all. Aptly-named the Melbourne jacket, the project idea comes from Melburnian Aaron Tyler, an advertising art director by day, who got inspired after a real-life run in with the city’s mood swings. Read more…
