“Normcore” by Designer Christian Heikoop

normcore9

Dutch designer Christian Heikoop playfully explores the “Normcore” fashion trend in which people consciously choose not to distinguish themselves. Intersecting fashion and design, Heikoop’s project imagines the future of “Normcore” based on a few of its basic tenants: 1. “Raggedness” (secluding one’s body from view), 2. “Anonymity” (keeping to one’s self and dressing inconspicuously) and 3. “All-in-one” (limiting the options by which one distinguishes him/herself).

Photographer Christoffer Relander’s Incredible Double Exposures Preserve the Landscapes of His Childhood

relander10

Photographer Christoffer Relander combines images of jars with black and white landscapes taken in the south of Finland where he was born and raised. Adding to the nostalgia factor, Relander shoots these double exposures on medium format film, manipulating the photographs in-camera rather than using Photoshop, and the results are stunning.

See more images from “Jarred & Displaced”, as well as a behind-the-scenes video by Anders Lönnfeldt, below.

Kamea Hadar and Tatiana Suarez’s Miami Mural

kamea_tati_mural16

Our friends, artists Kamea Hadar and Tatiana (Tati) Suarez, just finished a beautiful mural on a drawbridge over the Miami River. This piece, created in collaboration with Olukai, marks the launch of Dredge Arts, a public arts initiative bringing revitalization to the historic Miami river. Tati was one of the first local Miami artists to be featured in the Goldman family’s famed Wynwood Walls this year, and felt it was important for her to also give love to other parts of Miami.

The figures are wearing a traditional Haku lei with flowers from both Hawaii and Miami. The lotus flower in the middle is symbolic of the Brazilian legend of Vitoria Regia and is dedicated to Tati’s cousin who recently drowned.

“The legend is about a girl who wanted to touch the moon. She reached for the moon’s reflection in the water, fell in and never emerged. The moon felt pity for the girl, turning her into the flower that blooms beautifully during the moonlight. The Lotus is dedicated to my cousin. She herself was an artist and a beautiful human being who embodied all the same principles of Aloha.”
