    Daniel Segrove is our NYFW illustrator

    As the S/S 16 fashion season kicks off with New York Fashion Week, we have invited the San Francisco based illustrator, Daniel Segrove, to depict the catwalk looks in his emotional and expressive style.

    His work focuses on his own perspective of life, empathy and identity. Considering himself a figurative artist, Segrove studies anatomy and form and relates mostly to art which has figures he can identify with, narrating their story through his work.

    Working in mixed media, such as oil paints, acrylic, ink and charcoal, his illustrations create interesting layers and emotional energy. Only then does he see his work as finished.

    Stay tuned to see Segrove’s first illustrations on the SHOWstudio Tumblr and make sure you check our Collections page for all the up-to-date coverage of the shows.

    Transformative: Val Garland for Numéro by Sølve Sundsbø

    SHOWstudio's rolling Transformative series presents the history of contemporary fashion photography, as told from the perspectives of the the make-up artists and hairdressers.

    Val Garland sits down with Nick Knight to recall capturing Karen Elson with Sølve Sundsbø for Numéro #58, published in November 2004. The pair also discuss the physical intimacy of doing someone else's make-up, 'When you’re that close to somebody there is an intimacy between you and the girl and maybe her eyes are running or something, but you know, I’ve got to make her feel confident about her beauty before she goes in front of the camera - that is sort of our job,' explains Garland.

    Amor: the final look

    SHOWstudio are excited to present the final imagery and shoot footage for Nick Knight and Amanda Harlech’s V Magazine shoot.

    Entitled Amor, the series of shots explore the parallels between creativity and love; two things that are all-encompassing yet momentary at the same time. German painter Anselm Kiefer’s blackened sunflower heads inspired the concept, which saw model-of-the-moment Molly Bair pose live in the studio back in June. Donning beautiful creations from some of fashion’s best design houses, the final images see Bair in Givenchy feathers, Fendi fur and an unmissable Junya Watanabe headpiece.

    Peruse the entire editorial and take a look at the shoot footage for a behind-the-scenes view. Stay tuned for the corresponding fashion film coming soon.

    Go 'Behind The Seams' with fashion and death

    A/W 15 is a season full of decay, mourning and ultimately, death. From Thom Browne's 'beautiful' grieving attire to Yohji Yamamoto's dark bridal parade, fashion appears to be creating its own memento mori. It's this morbid theme that is set to be explored in a continuation of SHOWstudio's Behind the Seams project.

    Today marks the beginning of our exploration into all things macabre, starting with an essay by V Magazine's Katharine K. Zarrella. In the piece, Giacomo Leopardi’s playful poem, Dialogue Between Fashion and Death, introduces us to the familial bond between the pair. 

    Realising that this link is no laughing matter, Zarrella goes on to examine the morbid undertones present in creative work, looking at Alexander McQueen, Guy Bourdin and Rei Kawakubo in particular. 'Who knew a fashion show could help facilitate the five stages of grief?' reflects Zarrella on Kawakubo's recent Ceremony of Separation for Commes des Garçons.

    Check out the entire essay and make sure to catch up on the rest of the project. Stay tuned for more sinister examinations in the coming weeks.

    Th Autumn/Winter 2015 adidas Originals x Spezial collection mixes inspiration from the company's European roots along with the curator/designer Gary Aspden’s own personal experiences of the brand. The film takes two very oppositional environments with the people who inhabit them and highlights their parallels. It follows Ryder Jones from the unique music culture of his Merseyside home on a journey that takes in the natural beauty and architecture of Innsbruck. Both are locations that have a strong connection with adidas’s sporting and cultural roots.

    Calling all sneakerheads: Sportswear launches today!

    Calling all sneakerheads and hypebeasts. Sparked by the prevalence of sporty shapes on high fashion runways, SHOWstudio's new project Sportswear explores and investigates the history of key 'sportswear' garments. Working on the premise that a lack of both suitable terminology and awareness of the style's heritage has prevented proper, considered analysis, Lou Stoppard invited experts to reveal the story and subtleties behind select items, from the trainer to the hoodie.

    AdidasGary Aspden discusses the history and influence of the iconic Stan Smith in the first instalment of the series. Aspden comprehensively covers everything from collaborations to celebrities in the shoes' trajectory. 'It seems unimaginable now that a shoe like the adidas Stan Smith was at the forefront of sports technology when it was released,' adds Aspden. 'It was revolutionary at the time, when it came out like 45 years ago - but now those technological features are purely taken for their aesthetic qualities,' he explains.

    Shop the Addidas x Raf Simons Stan Smith on our SHOWstudio / MACHINE-A e-store, delve into the history of the Stan Smith and stay tuned for the next instalment of our Sportswear series.

    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.
