    William S. Burroughs exhibition opens tomorrow

    SHOWstudio Shop will open a solo exhibition of portraits of William S. Burroughs by Kate Simon tomorrow. The show celebrates the occasion of Burroughs' centenary and marks the debut release of Simon’s Cibachrome Edition portfolio, which is comprised of 11 iconic shots of the literary master printed in the now extinct cibachrome medium. These rare photographs will be displayed alongside a selection of black and white limited edition prints and a series of Burroughs' own File Folder paintings. Taken over a 20 year period, between 1975 - 1995, Simon has amassed a critical body of work that is widely unseen and captures the many faces of one of the most important American writers of the twentieth century.


    
Visit us at 19 Motcomb Street from Friday 14 March from 11:00 to see this wonderful body of work.

    Design Download: Giles - a new fashion film!

    Here at SHOWstudio we thrive on collaboration, and one of our favourite projects we love to see you get involved with is our Design Download series! In December 2012, Giles generously offered up an exclusive pattern from his A/W 07 collection and crafty individuals from accross the world got involved and interpreted the dress into their own colours, textures and styles! 

    Nick Knight and Giles himself picked their favourite creation. The winner was Leanne Broadway, a latex specialist who put a brilliant, futuristic and sleek twist on the pattern. In her own words, she wanted, 'to create a garment that translated the observers experience to the physicality of the wearer; it needs to feel as powerful to wear as the original looked.'

    As we continue to champion fashion film, we rewarded Broadway's creative flair with a fashion film, featuring her garment and shot by our very own head of fashion film Marie Schuller in a suitably futuristic setting!

    Watch the film now, and be sure to enter our most recent Design Download competition which is a covetable two piece look from the one and only J.W. Anderson!

    Dressing the Screen: Russia - Panel Discussion

    Our own head of fashion film, Marie Schuller, chaired a panel discussion as part of the British Council's Dressing the Screen initiative. The discussion spanned everything from the creative scene  in Russia to the potential of fashion film as a platform for rising talents to promote their work with. Schuller was in good company with Russian photographer Vlasta Guryeva, writer for Russia Vogue Natalia Turovnikova, FF.Digest's Maria Pudan, journalist Jana Melkumova-Reynolds, The Calvert Journal's Anastasiia Fedorova and Interview Russia's Natela Potskhveriya, as well as British filmmaker and curator of Dressing the Screen Kathryn Ferguson, who also ran a workshop with Schuller in Moscow mentoring the creation of fourteen fashion films from individual Russian talents. 

    Watch the absorbing discussion and re-visit the project in full for a visual insight into the designer and directorial stars of Russia as well as essays for an academic viewpoint!

    Watch Joe Lally's latest Soap Opera episode!

    Joe Lally continues to entice us into his dark portrayal of Hollywood with his latest film for his on-going Soap Opera series.

    Lally has been exploring, in a Warholian-esque ode, everything from transgender reality-stars to the downfall of aspiring actors. Homages to Kenneth Anger, depections of ex-convicts breaking down in the shower and violent LSD-inspired visions are all tied together by Lally's raw, sensual and somewhat unnerving filming. His latest episode, The Suicide Club, is (just like it says on the tin) a artistic suicide note starring Richard 'Dick' Stinger.

    Stephen Jones' new perfume is here!

    Stephen Jones launches his seductive new scent, Wisteria Hysteria, with a striking film directed by Henry Pincus and edited by Jamie Harley. The work is set is a world that is both rococo and futuristic, and depicts a woman discovering  a new side of herself,  all while clad in L'Wren Scott and Stephen Jones, of course. The deliberate contradictions of the scent - clean but sensual, familiar yet strange - are reflected in the protagonists complex new side, which is both light and dark, and positive and negative. The work is accompanied by music by Haxan Cloak.

    Watch the work now or snap up a bottle...Hysterical!

    Harlot & Bones

    Today, Saturday 1 March, French retailer colette launched Harlot & Bones, Amanda Harlech and Dominic Jones' collaborative jewellery collection. The campaign image for the gorgeous collection was shot by our very own Nick Knight and features Harlech's daughter, Tallulah Harlech wearing the turquoise stoned perfume bottle necklace from the collection.

    Inspired by Edwardian mourning jewellery and vintage heirlooms, the line is a true collaboration of Harlech and Jones’ unique aesthetics. Imagined and developed through a number of mutual interests, including the arts and the natural world, the range includes beetle-wing motif pendants, rings and earrings presented on traditional shields and lockets and poison rings similar to those that have been used throughout history to carry perfume and keepsakes. Excitingly, Harlot & Bones will be a permanent collaboration, with one collection released each year. This range will be available to buy from our SHOWstudio Shop from March - get saving!

    Dissecting Chalayan!

    Footage of our Hussein Chalayan panel is now available to watch on demand. We were lucky enough to have the insights of editor and writer Dal Chodha, fresh from editing a Hussein Chalayan themed issue of Archivist. 

    Archivist takes an 'inspirational rather than aspirational' view of fashion, exploring collections in depth and bringing to the foreground aspects and details that in this climate of fast fashion and excessive consumption, tend to be overlooked. 

    The Three Faces: Archive Chalayan issue sees Lida Fox, Kristen McMenamy and Bibiana Beglau wearing clothes from the archive, all dated between 1997 and 2010 'realising his concepts from the imaginative prison of nostalgia and academe.

    If you missed the pensive panel discussion watch it now, and check out Archivist Chalayan for an in-depth exploration of the designer's work.
