    On butterflies: A Damien Hirst painting and a Shaun Leane brooch
    The inspirations of Shaun Leane!

    Now on display at 19 Motcomb Street, Shaun Leane’s SHOWstudio exhibition provides a unique insight into the jeweller’s many inspirations. Nine bespoke pieces, which Shaun Leane created especially for this show, are all presented next to the objects that inspired them, from incredible natural history specimens like the Medusa emerald to outstanding art works and fashion pieces.

    Perhaps one of the show’s most striking pieces is the Damien Hirst butterfly painting. PSALM 136: Confetimini, consisting of butterfly wings suspended in paint and arranged in a mandala-like pattern, served as the direct inspiration for Shaun Leane’s stunning butterfly brooch.

    The painting exudes the artist’s fascination with the possibility of finding beauty in death. 'I’ve got an obsession with death…  But I think it’s like a celebration of life rather than something morbid,' Hirst once said. In this work, he refers to the spiritual symbolism of the butterfly, used in Christian imagery to signify the resurrection.

    Shaun Leane’s butterfly brooch is a unique and stylized take on Damien Hirst’s butterflies. Powerful in its simplicity, it’s made using mexican fire opals and black and white diamonds. The handcrafted brooch provides a vibrant testament to Hirst’s celebration of life.

    We invite you to come and see these amazing works at SHOWstudio Shop at 19 Motcomb Street! The gallery is open from Monday to Friday from 11:00 to 18:00 BST.

    Alexander Fury offers an ode to the great Mrs Prada

    Following Rebecca Gonsalves’ Ugly essay exploring the impacts of social media and street style on the fashion industry, SHOWstudio’s Ugly series takes a turn back to its origins. The project was inspired by Miuccia Prada’s statement that, ‘ugly is attractive, ugly is exciting. Maybe because it is newer’ and this new essay is the natural product of its nexus. Prada obsessive and sharp tongued wordsmith Alexander Fury lucidly interprets Mrs Prada’s 'glorification of the anti, the counter and the ugly.'

    Fury explores Prada’s unique and ‘illogical’ approach to design, describing her signature as ‘psychological rather than physical’. 'Like the surrealists before her, she questions our subconscious desires. That sounds like heavy weight cant to throw around a frock-monger, but Prada’s glorification of the anti, the counter and the ugly, is fundamentally about making us desire what received opinion deems undesirable’, explains Fury.

    Alek Wek on Herb Ritts

    Alek Wek is the latest supermodel to share her experience of creating an iconic image as part of our Subjective interview series. 

    Revisiting a Herb Ritts image taken very early on in her career in the late nineties, Wek goes into depth on the importance of knowing oneself, trusting the team around her and having a moral code, as well as the details of the shoot itself. Having emigrated from South Sudan only years earlier, Wek was unaware of Ritts' work and the industry in general. 'It was very overwhelming at the beginning with all of those circumstances… but the one thing I said to myself is if, I'm going to do this, I'm going to do this because I want to be accepted for the woman I am… and not as somebody else!'' she explains to Nick Knight.

    A new Ugly essay by Rebecca Gonsalves

    Over the past few weeks, acclaimed writers have been investigating various facets of 'ugly' fashion as part of our Ugly project. This time round The Independent's assistant fashion editor Rebecca Gonsalves explored the impact of social media, street style and the fast pace of the industry on dress and design.

    Reflecting on ideas of peacocking and conspicuous consumption, Gonsalves looks at the way we approach fashion post-recession. 'It seems that flattery is the furthest thing from many designers’ minds, as they push the boundaries of classical taste. But fashion ugly isn’t just the antithesis of traditional ideas of beauty – its current incarnation alludes to intelligence and social comment heavily laced with irony,' she conjectures. 

    Read Gonsalves' essay now and explore the rest of the series!

    Men's collections begin this weekend!

    The London Collections: Men begin on Sunday 15 June! To whet your appetite for the upcoming fashion weeks check out Charles Jeffrey's illustrations of London-based menswear designer Sebastiaan Pieter's A/W 14 collection! Last season was Pieter's LC:M debut, which made quite an impression on the fashion crowd (remember Charlie Porter waxing lyrical about the collection in the London round-up panel?) Jeffrey's illustrations perfectly encapsulate the way Pieter's designs play with typical notions of gender and masculinity. You can buy similar one-off drawings by Jeffrey at SHOWstudio Shop!
