If wearable art is your thing, then please let me introduce you to Swash London. Husband and wife duo Sarah Swash and Toshio Yamanaka have designed a collection covered in hand-drawn and painted motifs, ranging from flowers to animals and inner clock workings to equestrian bits and everything in-between. Paired with the most fabulous pom pom hats, how can you not be fascinated by these far out ensembles?
Burning Man takes place this week in Northern Nevada’s Black Rock Desert. It’s hard to believe that once a year tens of thousands of people gather to create Black Rock City, an entirely fabricated town dedicated to community, art, self-expression, and self-reliance. And after the week is over, there is absolutely no trace of human life leftover whatsoever. Honestly, amazing. Have any of you participated in this annual gathering?
Last season TRIWA collaborated with two of our favorite street artists Supakitch & Koralie to create a small collection of watches. Recently the Swedish watchmakers worked closely with British artist and designer Dominic Wilcox to create three pieces of artwork inspired by this season’s timepieces. The miniature scenes represent the process of watch production from the delivery of parts to the assembly and refinement. Dominic says “I’ve always liked the idea of little people living in a secret miniature world.” So cool!
Belgian designer and artist Liesbet Bussche has transformed street barriers and roadblocks, throughout the streets of Amsterdam, into larger than life necklaces, earrings and charms. What a clever and whimsical way to add a bit flair to the most ordinary objects!
