Style Crush | Anja Rubik by Josh Olins for Vogue Nippon June 2011

Refreshing to see the ever glamourous and feline Anja in clashing textures with a tough rocker edge. Managing to turn street 'alternative' (never been a fan) into rocker glam.

We die to each other daily.
What we know of other people is only our memory of the moments during which we knew them.
And they have changed since then.
To pretend that they and we are the same is a useful and convenient social convention which must sometimes be broken. 
We must also remember that at every meeting we are meeting a stranger.

- T.S. Eliot, The Cocktail Party

I N S P I R E | TODAY by Jonathan Harris

TODAY from m ss ng p eces on Vimeo.

On August 27th, 2009 Jonathan Harris turned 30 and began a simple ritual of taking one photo every day and posting it to his website before going to sleep.

This is a short film about Jonathan's project, made a few weeks after he stopped it, by Scott Thrift.

The captivating beauty behind stopping to appreciate each day, not for an event, but the event of life itself. It leaves a touching impression to also stop, for a moment each day, and acknowledge that we are in fact writing the story of our life, the only real legacy we leave to this world once we pass.

Thank you to Cold AM for sharing with us.

Style Crush | Invisible Shoe by Andreia Chaves x Freedom of Creation

Brazilian Fashion designer Andreia Chaves has created a series of 3D-printed shoes in collaboration with Amsterdam rapid prototyping studio Freedom of Creation.

The collection includes a pair covered in a mirrored shell, called Invisible Shoe, and another where the nude leather upper is visible through the same 3D-printed framework.

The series entitled ‘Invisible Shoe’ has shown in New York in an exhibition organized by Mercedes-Benz in collaboration with designer Herve Leger. In March 2011 the collaboration launched in Asia in association with I.T Hong Kong as well as the opening of the new store I.T Beijing Market Comme Des Garcons.

Described as a study of optical effect applied to shoe design, the ‘Invisible Shoe’ series explores the concept of invisibility though the ‘chameleon effect’ while the shoe’s reflective finished surface creates an obscured optical effect with each step taken. This innovative design greatly exceeds the primary function of the shoe, where “protecting” the foot also means “deleting” or “immersing” it into the environment.

The series, which will be available in limited edition, in three different models, is handmade in Italy using a combination of leather making techniques together with advanced 3D printing technology.
