    Love, Money, God: Michèle Lamy

    Over years of researching her Icons and Muses project, Sofia Tchkonia has interviewed numerous influential figures of 20th and 21st century fashion and culture, including Pierre Berge, Rick Owens and Serge Lutens. She invited SHOWstudio to edit and release the footage as a series entitled Love, Money, God, a nod to the journalist's three key questions.

    Following on from previous interviews with Jean-Paul Goude and Betty Catroux, this week's candid conversation is with fashion consultant and entrepreneur Michèle Lamy. Lamy discusses studying to be an attorney, opening a factory in LA and meeting Rick Owens, who she is now wife and muse to; 'I think I had seen him in the street. His look before was not so different to now, a little more fierce... He was sticking out.' Aside from her career, Lamy also ponders wrinkles, humanity, and what keeps her going: 'Tea and cigarettes!'

    Head to our Love, Money, God project now to hear the fashion icon reminisce about her life

    Agender

    Selfridges launched their Agender campaign this spring which I had the pleasure to work on. Our shoot features pairings who resemble each other, illustrating how genderless fashion can be. I've always been very interested in androgyny and am so excited to see the idea of genderless dressing represented in one of London's major luxury retailers.

    The Biggest Sin

    Please enable JavaScript to view this content.

    SHOWstudio is proud to present The Biggest Sin, an atmospheric new fashion film directed by Ivan Olita. Shot entirely underwater, the films stars albino model Shaun Ross and investigates a state of limbo.

    'Shaun is the protagonist of the film because I’ve been always incredibly inspired by him: his features, his being and most importantly the state of limbo he inhabits within our society. He doesn’t want to define, he doesn’t need to. He subverts the perception of sin to the incapacity of doing anything rather than the intention of doing something,' explains Olita.

    Ross himself adds, 'I think the biggest sin is not to live your life the way you want to.'

    Bruise Album
    Tessa Kuragi & Jon-Ross Le Haye

    In an intriguing collaborative project, model Tessa Kuragi and designer Jon-Ross Le Haye have created Bruise Album, a one-off, light activated album and a limited edition of 50 facsimile books showcasing a collection of semi-transparent images of bruising.

    Kuragi, who has shot for fashion photographers such as Inez and Vinoodh and Ellen Von Unwerth, has long collected photos of bruises she has sustained over the years. 'I have always been drawn to bruising as a mark of love, endurance, trust, and the paradoxical nature of sexual sadomasochism - being both incredibly intimate and caring, whilst mediated through pain and suffering,' she explained. With the help of her partner Le Haye, the designer behind numerous recognisable Tate and Whitechapel Gallery campaigns, she presented her collation of bruises as a series of semi-transparent images bound together in a re-appropriated Victorian photo-album. The format acts to mirror the fading of bruising over time - together the collection forms a combined bruise that lightens with each page turn, while the pretty illustrations on each page create a strange juxtaposition. The pair's choice of translucent paper also references the nature of bruises on the skin, where blood, something previously concealed, leaks to just below the surface.

    SHOWstudio is delighted to announce that non-seasonal publication Archivist has been nominated in the fashion category of this year's Designs of the Year exhibition.

    Now in its eighth year, Designs of the Year celebrates design that 'promotes or delivers change, enables access, extends design practice or captures the spirit of the year.' Archivist, which is edited by regular SHOWstudio panelist Dal Chodha, 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.
