In the latest instalment of Sportswear, a project exploring the history of key garments motivated by the influence of sporty shapes in high-fashion, Elgar Johnson - fashion director of British GQ Style - talks about his personal relationship with the tracksuit, and sports brand snobbery.
Johnson explains, 'I think the beauty of the tracksuit is that anyone can wear it anytime and it’s accessible to anyone. I think that as soon as you start putting things on catwalks, it almost makes it that only a certain person can wear it, they have to be a certain size, they have to have a certain look, and I don’t really believe in that.'
In June 2015, Faustine Steinmetz took up residency at SHOWstudio as part of our LiveStudio series. Building on her A/W 15 collection, Steinmetz wove a piece of denim using silk and copper. Sharing the logic behind the piece, she explained 'I’m doing this project because I’m interested in moulding the piece on the girl like a sculpture'.
Put together using live stream footage from the project, a brand new process film is now available to watch on SHOWstudio! Tune in to see the film and revisit the project in full here.
Plus, don't forget that the Faustine Steinmetz A/W 16 collection is now shop-able at the SHOWstudio/MACHINE-A e-store!

Hospital Rooms is a charity initiative co founded by artist, Tim A Shaw and curator, Niamh White. The charity was formed through the joint ambition to improve conditions for residents staying at mental health rehabilitation centres, commissioning groups of artists to refurbish the wards.
Hospital Rooms' debut project took place at the Phoenix Unit at Springfield University hospital in Tooting this year, where artists such as Nick Knight and Gavin Turk were invited to install an artwork of their choice.
The project has just launched on SHOWstudio, where the works have been documented in an online gallery, as well as via interviews with some of the artists involved. Be sure to check out the project to learn more about the motivations behind the works as well as the way they have affected both patients, staff and artists!
