    Fashion Film: Alyx

    Watch Nick Knight and Alyx creator Matthew Williams’ fashion film Mother exclusively on SHOWstudio. 

    The foundation of the womenswear brand is built on the undercurrent, 'luxury is subverted and imbued with subculture, defying codes in a benchmark of illicit contrasts, radical and refined.' The ready-to-wear and accessories harness inspirations from Williams' California youth and global urban subcultures, drawing on aesthetics from Paris and Pismo Beach.

    Edited by Dustin Robertson and styled by Tom Guinness, the film celebrates the launch of Alyx and the Autumn/Winter 2015 debut collection entitled My First Time. Shot both on location in Brighton and in SHOWstudio’s London space, the film features Tallulah and Scout Willis and a custom soundtrack with lyrics from Danzig’s Mother. The film is released alongside a printed catalogue showing off the range in full.

    Watch Mother, explore the catalogue images and read Jo-Ann Furniss' interview with the Willis Sisters! Check out the catalogue on SHOWstudio / MACHINE-A and stay tuned for William's Tumblr curation.

    Peter Saville discusses New Order Untitled

    Check out the latest instalment of our Print project!

    In 1989, Peter Saville called upon the photographer Donald Christie to shoot the notoriously photo-shy band, New Order. Accumulating a vast collection of rare and personal photography, Saville looked to Andy Warhol's Interview magazine for inspiration. Under the helm of Factory Records, Saville utilised his unique collection of New Order imagery and created New Order Untitled magazine. Originally intended to be released in conjunction with the 1989 US tour, the magazine unfortunately never made it to print on time. Our Print project brings the issue back to life with an exclusive interview and accompanying collective of magazine scans. 

    Saville says of the issue: 'People were puzzled by it because it wasn’t a tour book. It didn’t even make any reference to their touring. It’s that convergence of music, art, fashion, which is how we live now.'

    Read Saville’s interview, discussing his publishing experience and look through New Order Untitled for yourself. Don’t forget to check out the rest of Print and explore titles such as Lipstick, Cheap Date and Sleazenation.

    Transformative: Make It Up with Val Garland

    Alongside our Subjective series, which explores the creation of fashion images with the models themselves, the Transformative project explains the history of fashion photography from the perspective of the stylist, the make-up artists and the hairdressers.

    The latest Transformative instalment launched today, revealing the processes and ideas of the acclaimed make-up artist, Val Garland. In this interview, Garland and Nick Knight discuss their collaborative film, Make It Up. Inspired by 'Les Desmoiselles d'Avignon' and Hans Bellmer's 'La Poupèes,' Garland used twelve models to create an abstract and explosive performance of colour and fantasy. 'What I wanted to do was to play with the shapes of their bodies. Use them as if they were the sculpture,' adds Garland. 

    Watch now as Garland discusses this exclusive fashion film and explore the rest of Transformative, with interviews from hair stylist Sam McKnight and make-up artist Isamaya Ffrench

    Blue Velvet: a film by Giraffe Studios

    SHOWstudio presents Blue Velvet, a new film created by LA based artists, Juliana and Nicky Giraffe.

    Juliana Giraffe’s debut video and cover of Blue Velvet, filmed on super 8mm, is the first of a series of psychedelic performance pieces created by Giraffe Studios. Utilising neon, velvet, and celluloid, the film draws on influences from sixties performance art and music, investigating the overlap between analog and digital. Nicky Giraffe, the films director, plays with the ability to create a time-free zone within her art and aims to ‘present the internet audience with a space age meets California cool snippet to soothe intergalactically.’  

    The song was recorded to tape and produced by Gregory Hartunian. Juliana Giraffe will be releasing a complete original project/album later in 2015. The make-up was by Desiree Falcon and the costume design was hand-made by the Giraffe's mother, Monica Adriana.

    Our Print series is back with Scott King and Sleazenation

    Check out the latest instalment of our Print project!

    Launched in 1996, Sleazenation was created as 'an ideal for living through fashion, art, music and design.' It has gone on to become a uniquely influential publication, differentiating itself from other magazines of that time. 

    Today, catch up with Scott King, Sleazenation's former creative director, as he chats about the magazine’s legacy and impact. 'The immediate problem though, the terrible irony, was that anything you put in a style magazine, any kind of ‘scathing critique’ is immediately and only consumed as some form of ‘cool’. Whatever you say is overwhelmed by the format: a format that is expressly about trivia,' he argues, tellingly.

    Read the interview now, and take a look through Sleazenation yourself. Don’t forget to check out the rest of the Print.
