When Victoria Villasana (previously) lays a long stitch on a vintage photograph, she’s connecting the pattern or geometric shape to a piece of history, culture, or philosophy. The Mexican artist transforms found black-and-white images of cultural icons and historical figures through vibrant embroideries. Turquoise fibers radiate from Nelson Mandela’s fist, a gold, chevron collar lines Chadwick Boseman’s shirt, and Yayoi Kusma sports a multicolor garment with varying dots and stripes. Emboldened by stitches that often breach the photograph’s edges, the multi-media artworks exude power, strength, and beauty.
Villasana sources many of the images from the public domain, although she sometimes collaborates with photographers, as well. “I think color helps us to connect emotionally and I like to look at the past and merge tradition and vanguard. I’m also interested in symbolism and geometry in art as a way to communicate deeper meanings with each other,” she shares with Colossal.
Given we’re bang in the middle of fashion season, under normal circumstances the timeline would be filled with street style snaps of lewk upon lewk right now, as editors, influencers, and off-duty models jostle shoulders with each other to make sure they’re seen. Just in case you missed it, however, things are a long way off normal right now, with most of the industry’s biggest peacocks taking in SS21 proceedings from the comfort of their ownhellip;read more raquo;

I due marchi italiani leader nel settore dell’abbigliamento tecnico e dell’occhialeria si incontrano con un occhiale da sole in edizione limitata che riunisce Persol e Stone Island.
Le due aziende hanno realizzato un occhiale da sole con montatura in metallo rifinito con ponte e viti a vista, lenti in cristallo polarizzato blu in stile aviatore e aste gialle. Disponibili dal 29 settembre sul sito di Persol e di Stone Island, e presso rivenditori selezionati.
Ridisegnato esclusivamente per questa collaborazione, il modello proviene dagli archivi Persol e risale agli anni ’70. In particolare, per questa collaborazione che si ispira al mondo dell’aviazione con un richiamo diretto al workwear, viene utilizzato lo stesso macchinario usato per creare i modelli originali Persol.
L’occhiale ha una forma pilot, con un profilo caratterizzato da un ponte in metallo con viti a vista, creato artigianalmente con un’attenzione particolare al dettaglio, per assicurare la massima tecnologia senza rinunciare allo stile. Il ponte in metallo è spazzolato a mano per ottenere un effetto opaco, che contrasta con il resto dell’occhiale e con le lenti più lucide. Un unico modello in un’unica variante colore. Gli occhiali sono confezionati in una box dedicata, che insieme agli accessori restituisce l’essenza e l’attenzione alla funzionalità. Nella confezione, sono presenti, oltre agli occhiali, l’astuccio, un cordino portaocchiali e un kit per la pulizia studiato ad hoc.
Spanish artist Àngela Maria Sierra, who works as Riso Chan, explores the human psyche through subtly layered foliage. “I always imagine that they are someone’s soul, what we don’t see, our nature,” Sierra says of the delicate botanical assemblages that she overlays onto her subjects’ faces and torsos. Each portrait begins with a focus on texture and pattern as the artist paints clusters of twigs and leaves with watercolor. She then scans those botanical elements and uses Procreate to superimpose the figure onto the original piece.
Alongside their simple beauty, the pastel paintings, some of which are self-portraits, reflect the narratives and worries that consume the artist’s daily life. She describes her work as “a journal where I express moments or feelings that are important for me during those days. It’s a way to give those feelings space and then let them go.” Tied to both struggles and joys, topics include finding freedom through creativity during lockdown, growing up in an drug-filled home, and the bravery required to move forward.
When Raf Simons was announced as co-creative director of Prada back in February, no one could have imagined that the fashion week in which he’d make his debut at the house would look quite like this. But the show must go on – and today that’s just what it did. Here’s what went down today at Prada’s SS21 Milan Fashion Week show.read more raquo;
