WKND brings our girl crushes from the 90s to skateboard decks

For their latest line skateboarding company WKND went back to the heroines that spiced up the classic movies of the 90′s and the soundtracks that accompanied them. The girls that made the cut are Laney Boggs from ‘She’s All That’, Peffercorn from ‘The Sandlot Kids’, Kim from ‘Edward Scissorhands’, Sloane from ‘Ferris Bueller’s Day Off’, and Hope Sandoval from Mazzy Star. But we especially love the limited edition ‘Penelope Cruizer’ starring – who else? – Penelope Cruz. The line of decks is classic WKND tongue-in-cheek and has been beefed up with a range of tees (featuring the same graphics), caps and knee high socks. This line will be available as of November, but you can make waiting easier by heading over to the WKND website and watch the fun-filled videos that gave them Internet-fame, starring skateboarders Raymond Molinar, Johan Stuckey, Christian Maalouf, Alex Smidt, and Nolan Benfield who roam the streets of California.

Luxury fashion label Saint Laurent recently opened a new store in Milan, featuring a futuristic interior by the hand of the brand’s creative director Hedi Slimane. The store is a continuation of the slick style of their other flagship boutiques and boasts marbled surfaces, geometric shapes, alternating with a series of mirrored and transparent furnishings. A staircase is at the center of the room, clad with vertical reflective slats on both sides, while carefully positioned seating protrudes from the store’s marbled walls. Slimane calls the style ‘modern art deco’.

Ida Gro Christiansen captures body movement for Modebelofte 2014

Ida-Gro-Christiansen-2
This year’s Modebelofte 2014 takes place in Eindhoven during the Dutch Design Week (18-26 October) and as always the competition investigates the future of fashion. This year’s theme is Seductive Precursors and this piece above has been created by Ida Gro Christiansen (Royal College of Art, London) who tries to capture body movement. By combining flexible and stiffer materials, she succeeded in making new shapes thanks to the different shaping language and due to non-traditional fabrics. The result is an uncontrollable dimension that is added to the pattern cutting process. The basis for her collection is a super thin stretch tulle that is contrasted by both heavy furniture wool from Kvadrat as well as high gloss plastics and rubber.

Modebelofte 2014 takes place from October 18th until 26th in Bongo Beach Club, Eindhoven.

His minimalist collage work uses a lot of found paper while his colours and style are reminiscent of the work of John Baldessari. Discover more below.
