Sacai was established by Chitose Abe in 1999 after 8 years of working with the Junya Watanabe collection at Comme des Garçons. Her collections may appear to be about femininity, but Abe’s interest is in creating clothes that are entirely unique and timeless, innovative and experimental. Juxtapositions of contrasting textures of fabrics such as knits with super fine wovens and usage of techniques based on reinterpretations of patterns of the garment transform the pieces into unexpected shapes and silhouettes.
AMBUSH®’s ‘HALBSTARKE’ Collection channels the rebellious attitude of disaffected 50's youth who wore found objects as accessories in a defiant declaration of individuality.
AMBUSH®’s own beginnings, impulsively creating jewelry unavailable elsewhere to fulfill personal desire, finds a kindred spirit in the ‘HALBSTARKE’ characters as captured in the photography of Karlheinz Weinberger. A Japanese proverb, ’The nail that sticks out will be hammered down’ counters the freedom in creativity that defines AMBUSH®, yet inspires ‘HALBSTARKE’ Collection’s use of the nail as a found object, reimagined & redesigned in sterling silver, made in Japan.
Photographer and Director Fabien Montique presents his latest project, featuring rapper Pusha T. The two teamed up to create a zine and cover art for Pusha T’s second solo studio album, King Push - The Darkest Before Dawn: The Prelude. The collaboration resulted in 60 black and white photographs, all capturing the dark aesthetic provided by Pusha T.
Pusha T came by Storm for the opening of the exhibition - Stolen Moments Gallery has produced this video of the launch.
The exhibition can be experienced in-store at Storm!
