Fetishizing Fashion Brands

BY KEVIN JAEDON

"Where do you work?" After making the switch to men's fetishwear brand Nastypig, fashion designer Kevin Jaedon wants people to know that he is NOT a nasty pig! 

Kevin discusses how all brands give off distinct connotations. Whether designed to be high fashion, conservative and work-oriented, or to wear at the International Mister Leather convention, you never know who might actually be the brains behind what you are wearing!

Diseñar desde el corazón consciente

BY GABI VALLADARES
@ VOL 2 ON APR 28, 2016

Papusa nace de mi necesidad personal de conseguir franelas y ropa que fuese un poquito más distinta a lo normal, hace 4-5 años que empecé a hacer esto. Mucha gente dice yo no compro aquí sino cuando viajo o lo que sea, también pasa que cuando consigues ropa acá es muy normal que sea en tiendas donde los tirajes son muy grandes y es común que te puedas conseguir lo mismo en muchas personas; entonces eso no me gustaba para nada y empecé a vestirme muy unicolor, hasta que en un momento dije ya va, si me gustan los estampados y yo quisiera un estampado qué me pondría, porque eso de llevar una marca encima jamás me ha gustado, para llevar una franela que tenga una marca gigante en el pecho me tienen que pagar, gratis no hago publicidad, entonces dije a ver qué me pondría yo, qué diría yo, cómo lo haría yo y empecé a pintar a mano esas franelas unicolores.

Ceramic Assemblies

BY LIMINAL PROJECTS (OMAR KAHN AND LAURA GARÓFALO)
@ VOL 17 ON SEP 15, 2016

"Ask a ceramicist and they will insist that the material lives."

In Ceramic Assemblies from PechaKucha Buffalo vol. 17, Laura Garófalo and Omar Kahn of Liminal Projects discuss their prototypes for ceramic building systems that were developed at the European Ceramics Workcentre (ekwc), in Oisterwijk, the Netherlands. They are designs that explore ways that architecture can mediate heat, water and nature. Ceramics, which are fired clay, are one of the oldest building materials. But they defy easy categorization because their behavior and properties are so diverse. Ceramics were used to build the Roman aqueducts and also used for the heat shield on the Space Shuttle. Ask a ceramicist and they will insist that the material lives. It is this quality that Garófalo and Kahn want to capture and perpetuate in their work.

Presentations In this presentation (from PKN Sydney Vol. 21) by Anna Lise de Lorenzo you'll find out all about &company, a project that gives emerging designers the opportunity to build their design experience within a creative community. They provide mentoring, facilitate production with local craftspeople and manufacturers, and take care of the marketing and distribution of the design. &company is on a mission to give designers a leg-up as they develop into capable and confident professionals. Not just for designers, the new Pop-Up premises in The Rocks invites anyone in to come and make something in the workshop, learn new skills in a class, or check out the work by their designers in the gallery and store. Poet and rapper Pablo Xavier suffers from schizophrenia, but he feels much better now. Through poetry and images, he explains how hard it has been. A very personal and touching presentation (in French, from PKN Lausanne Vol. 9). Posters We have two new posters on the Tumblr blog today, first for PKN London Vol. 7 (pictured above), and then for PKN Gainesville Vol. 4, which are happening on June 28 and 29 respectively.
