Atmospheric Reentry by Maiko Takeda


Hundreds of colourful bristles emanate from headdresses in Maiko Takeda’s millinery collection, presented at the Royal College of Art fashion show earlier this week.The adornments consist of transparent plastic spikes tinted with colour gradients at the bases and tips, which are held in place between sections of acrylic joined
by small silver rings.
“While hats are commonly made with substantial and durable materials such as fabric, felt, plastic, leather so on, instead I wanted to create ethereal experiences for the wearer through the pieces,” Takeda told Dezeen.

“Through the experiment process, I developed the technique to create a visual effect of intangible aura by layering printed clear film, sandwiched with acrylic discs and linked together with silver jump rings.”One head piece comprises two domes covered in orange and red spines that sit either side of the face with in thin gap in between, and another mask with orange and purple spines wraps around the head like a sea cucumber.Peacock-tail-coloured quills fan out like ruffled feathers around a visor that masks from forehead to mouth. Another design covers the head, shoulders and bust but leaves the face exposed, while a different garment reaches from one wrist to another along two sleeves that join across the chest and back.

Her collection was part of the Royal College of Art‘s annual fashion show, which took place on several occasions this week.Last month we wrote about headsets that allow the wearer to adjust their sight and hearing, which were also developed by a group of Royal College of Art students.

Brutal Paris

Brutalism is an architectural movement, this is seen as the overcoming of the Modern Movement in architecture.
Brutalism often uses the roughness of the exposed cement (in French béton brut, conceived the first time by Le Corbusier), whose plastic shapes, machined and shaped in particular as in the pilotis or in the fireplaces of “Unité d’Habitation”, show with expressive power the structure.

The Polish creative studio Zupagrafikahas produced a new series called Brutal Paris kit, which includes six icons of brutalism in Paris:


Custom Designs From The World

Melody Hames, 27, is a British artist and she has a very interesting job – she gives horses free-hand artistic haircuts.

This human behaviour helps them to get healthy.

She had to trim her pony frequently because it suffered from a condition called cushings, causing it to have a thick woolly coat which doesn’t change in the warmer season.

The horses she works on always look fabulous

But… What about eastern tradition?
Last week I saw some interesting pics about human life in Sahara, in which every camels are treated as a masterpiece.

But… This has provoked a great deal of criticism, because some people are completely against this attitude.
