Nendo reframes the white shirt for COS installation in Milan

The COS x Nendo installation comprises a series of white shirts, which are displayed on stands and hung from the ceiling at different heights throughout the space.

However, this is a fashion blog. So if I say to you 'blank canvas', you might think that I'm referring to fashion as art. And yes, while fashion is art there was something I saw among various Fall 2012 womenswear design houses that suggested that we look at the body as as a whole regardless of appendages as one grand canvas. A continuous stripe disregarding merging the torso with the arms and legs, a head to foot single image like a slideshow on the body or moving cavalcade of color where limbs take a back road and seem like walking art installations are what was proposed by the following designers.

In the San Francisco Bay Area, Berkeley Open Source Food, a project funded in part by the Berkeley Food Institute, is working to increase the supply of fresh, affordable, nutritious, drought-resistant, low-carbon-impact greens—especially in urban food deserts.

Philip Stark tells us about the project’s origin, and about a few edible greens you might find in your own backyard.

From a dingy small space we have blossomed into a light, bright and well stocked textile print room in Bermondsey, London.


Set up by Andy Leggatt after acquiring one print table, then another and another... Andy has been in the screen print business as a supplier to the industry for over fourteen years. In 2008 after acquiring a table, Andy decided to set up a space for screen printing in a railway arch in Deptford, along with a few loyal textile designers who ran their freelance business from there. Demand soon grew, until a new home was needed. Cut to 2015, after 2 moves and 5 years in The Biscuit Factory, we're expanding yet again and now find ourselves thriving with our many different print practitioners in our brand new Printall Studios based in the arches on 42 Reymouth Road. We're excited about our new chapter in the middle of a burgeoning art community in South East London. LSS PRODUCT PRICELIST 2015_FULL.pdf.
