Sara Lillie’s absolutely brilliant visualisations of Danish sayings. Sara is a visual storyteller who works both as an illustrator and production designer. She’s also one of the nicest people I’ve ever met, so there’s that!
From the top, roughly translated by myself: (two top ones) “Equal children play best”, “where no risk is taken, nothing is won”, “high to fly - low to fall”
Wendell is hands down the greatest homeless fashion designer who ever lived. He makes almost all his clothes from things he finds. I hadn’t seen him in awhile, so I was quite thrilled to walk up on him Tuesday, doing this to a Gandhi statue.
This is so fascinating. The Korowai tribes build their houses in the trees, in an amazing feat of collaboration. As a weaver I also paid close attention to how much of the construction consists of weaving like techniques. Please take out a few minutes to watch the video, it’s worth every minute.
Saara Lepokorpi, finnish fashion designer with her own label. I came across the second to last picture on a Tumblr post from WWD and decided to do some research. She is an avid fabric developer, which I love. She is like a grungey Proenza Schouler. And she makes her model pose with leeks. All in all, I love her.
I just discovered some bad ass weaving! Kustaa Saksi is the man. As far as I can gather, he’s a Finnish artist based in Amsterdam, who works on a really wide array of projects. But these jacquards are imo the best. Big fan.
