Artist and surrealist tastemaker Quentin Jones is set to exhibit her latest work at The Vinyl Factory in London as of November 19. If it’s anything near her spread for Adult Magazine earlier, the audience is in for a sordid yet playful treat. Talking to Dazed & Confused about her exhibition, Jones spoke about her collab with talented set designer Robert Storey and how her unique aesthetic is shaking up both the fashion and art industry: “Robert designs spatially for film and editorial, and also for physical spaces. But for me, it is so cool that he is building houses for my work that contains his work within it. The film rooms we are building will play animations that will reflect around the room on mirrors so the viewer really walks into the film, with the sound that Peter Duffy has edited together for me echoing around them in 3D space.”

Lisa Sorgini is an Australian photographer who also dabbles in collage art. For this series called ‘Food Stamps’ she paired old National Geographic pictures with items of food from her kitchen, creating a humorous and playful series which she describes as ‘an accidental collage project’. She says: “These serendipitously came together to create a series of images with renewed and implied meaning.”
Combining the best of both worlds of Japanese garments and Japanese food, Engineered Garments designer Daiki Suzuki has given the crew at Ippudo Japanese Ramen Brasserie in New York a makeover. Instead of the typical all-white or all-black waiters uniform, the restaurant staff are now dressed in a stylish apron-jacket hybrid combo in navy. The collab started out as a simple cotton twill jacket, but thanks to valuable suggestions from the Ramen master Fumihiro Kanagae, the project transformed into a more complex and heavy-duty jacket packing style and functionality. These pieces of re-envisioned workwear are now also being sold at Ippudo’s Midtwon location on 51st Street, priced at approximately $300 USD for the jacket and an extra $100 USD for the apron.
Dutch photographer Rene Mesman creates images borrowing the style of still life paintings: a pineapple fish, a peach-nut, a long-haired owl, and a pink artichoke. More wacky associations after the break.
Intermarché, a large supermarket chain in France, decided it is time for an endangered species to be saved from the trash can: ugly duckling vegetables and fruit. 40% of greens don’t reach UK shelves only because they don’t look the part.

Running errands at the local supermarket, Karsten Wegener, Silke Baltruschat and Raik Holst discovered a piece of packaged ham which uncannily resembled ‘The Scream’ by Edvard Munch. The shape of the ham, the arrangement of egg, cucumber, carrot and the packaging was perfect.
