Streetstyle from Lviv, Ukraine.
I really don’t know where to begin with this guy, there is just too much good stuff going on with the styling, the photos, the fitting, the fabrics, the prints, the attitude.
And even though the ho bo x fashion theme is portrayed times and times before and almost instantly ends up on the commercial catwalk shortly after, which off course makes the fashion industry predictable and kind of ridiculous by balancing on the ultimate cliché full and stereotypes – I just falls in love every single time a new icon like Slavik pops the surface.

Thanks a lot for sticking on. I’ve been working on different stuff during the last couple of months, which is why the break went a little longer than expected. Sorry for that..
The video above is from my BA collection, shown this last copenhagen fashion week, just some weeks ago.
The video is made together with extremely talented Philip Peng Rosenthal, and help from photographer Charlotte Ea Jørgensen, model Noah Syrkis and sound from When Saints Go Machine (Warner Music).

Beautiful sound and image from long time favorite; Efdemin.
Video shot by Stefan Münster in the 1990s empty streets of Berlin, right after the fall of the Berlin Wall.
While other photographers scrambled to shoot the scenes playing around the Maiden Square in Kiev, Tom Jamieson wandered the occupied zone asking to see what protesters were packing.
“Every single person without fail had a club or a bat or something like that,” says Jamieson. “You couldn’t help but notice the DIY nature of the whole thing, from the barricades themselves to the totally inadequate body armor that people were wearing, and the weapons as well.”
The weapons are shown in the hands of their owners against a black backdrop. Jamieson and his assistant wandered the zone, lugging a black background cloth that they would set up when they found a protester carrying an interesting-looking implement. They shot outside in the square, in occupied buildings, near the protesters’ tents, usually in the early morning or twilight hours to keep lighting consistent.
Some weapons are marked with the names of their home towns or messages for their intended targets — others are decorated with religious symbols. Each is single-minded in its design — clubs and maces for bashing, slingshots and stones for hurling, and forked pikes for ripping the shields out of the hands of police. These personalized tools of revolution were a source of pride among their owners, and the details of each tells its own story.
Despite the horrible situation and necessity of the weapons, it’s rather interesting that the very banal design of these weapons indeed shows how determined the protesters were to damage the government security forces.
I’ve been crazy busy the last couple weeks preparing an exhibition, doing exam at the Design School and participating in an instagram campaign by woodwood and Samsung, which has caused the lack of presence on this site. But I’ll make it up to you, and I’m preparing some good stuff for the next weeks, starting of with this one:
Dortmund favorite Kenton Slash Demon made the soundtrack for this seasons aw 14 show by woodwood. I heard it first hand at the show, and since then I’ve been waiting and hoping it would go online.. And some days ago it did.
The show was likewise utterly brilliant, with a great correlation between location, colors, styling and collection. See for yourself right here.
