TRASH fall winter 2017

Trash is an Athens-based fashion project/clothing brand that explores and celebrates trash culture.
It is founded and curated by Jonny Seven and Stamatis Kalagkias. The design of the clothes and the depiction of each collection have elements selected from subcultures of the past, presented in a contemporary and experimental way.

The first collection of Trash, entitled Eurotrash, is dedicated to the 80s & 90s club scene, midnight movies and gay porn.
Its about having a drink at a sex party.

For the Eurotrash lookbook, photographer Kostis Fokas used the clothes to create a surreal story with collages
that combine romanticism and fetishism.

The theme is sushi; taking inspiration from the characteristics of different types of sushi as one of my favourite foods.
 
The concept of this collection is the cross-reference between sushi and utility wear. Not only it is bright and vibrant in colour,
the garments are also come out as a form of protection.
 
The silhouettes, shapes, and colours get bolder and bigger along the way from the first look to the last look.
That explains the feeling of being full after eating, as it gets bulkier and the layers that covers the body parts are getting thicker and heavier. The garments themselves are becoming more like armours for the wearer.
 
Hiei; taken from the name of Japanese battleship during the second World War that ever lost in action.
The statement I am full does not only reflect the feeling after eating,
but also stating the subject had enough of whatever thing that he
or she has consumed. In this context, a war.

MOTOGUO_ladiesngents_ A Litho Odd




Moto is expressing his appreciation towards curves in his FW 2015 collecton named A Litho Odd.

Inspired by curves, he plays around with them by distorting them, elongating them and even adding lines and other geometric shapes to complement the curves. The collection is seperated into three main groups; flat, 2 dimensional and 3 dimensional. In the Flat section, simplicity takes the main stage as the focus of each garments are the necklines, openings and pockets. In the 2D segment, Moto applies the free motion pebble quilting techniques to evoke various emotions and to put their perspectives into play, foreshadowing the beginning of the end of the collection. The collection ultimately comes to a completion with the 3D segment which features the Shibori bubble pleating method. The effect is that 3D bubbles are created on the surface of the garment, challenging audiences visual senses to go beyond into the physical.

The curve idea came from a vintage kids book Moto was reading from. Taxed out of doing design research, he picked up a book to read and unwind. It was a Question and Answer book with questions by kids. While I was going through the book, I realized that the author explained everything from social matters to personal circumstances using a formula and suddenly it hit me - the answers lie within the Curve. The Curve explained everything so by using the curve, I hope to invoke the audiences thought process to make them ponder and question about it. Moto explained.

The kids book helped out the designer to build his collection aesthetically but the actual backstory to the collection lies within the heart of the designer himself as the collection is a translation of his emotions. The collection, aptly named A LITHO ODD is definitely odd, especially with the way little is spelt.

Litho is short for Lithopedion, Moto explains. It means stone baby or fossilized baby, a strange biology phenomenon where when a baby is in the womb and taking its shape, it dies fossilized. The mother carrying the fossilized baby might not even notice that she was pregnant in the first place!

Upon learning about fossilized babies, the designer contemplated about it for several days, even imagining the situations that might have caused and were caused by this peculiar occurance. Perhaps the baby, in its limited senses, overheard what was going on beyond its womb.Perhaps it has heard of the ugly truth and hypocrisy that is the world and decided not to exit the womb. Moto continues. So the baby fossilizes itself to protect itself from the entering the jaded world. Having its presence barely known, it retreats back to complete nothingness.

When the stone baby is discovered one way or another, it is bound to elicit a spectrum of emotions from people. Because it is exposed, it would be a topic of conversation that would generate shock and an unsettling feeling in the gut. This would be followed by wave after wave of other types of emotions by different kinds of people. Moto closes as he is done explaining his concept for the FW 2015 collection. His mouth forms to a little blank smile yet his tired eyes were caught in deep thought. It is apparent that designer Moto Guo just wants to do what his heart desires without a care for people and situations that would only generate problems and obstacles that would bring him away
from fulfilling his will. Occasionally, he would like to draw inspirations from vintage childrens books.

BLANC_Aglaia Restuccia

Aglaia Restuccia_ladiesngents



Calling her collection BLANC, Aglaia Restuccias daily inspiration derives by her own way of living BLANC, dressing BLANC and eating BLANC. To find the right cut for her collection, she started thinking conceptually about white; about how white spaces reflect the light in both, open spaces and close ones. Thats why the pairs of the shoes are not the same on right and left foot, but with cuts that are continuing each other. She mixed her no-colors pure way of looking through  the things with the most raw material: COPPER. That was her deal for the graduation year: make comfortable shoes from the most unconventional material for shoes and garments. She's been working by herself with copper in multiple experimentations, arriving to the solution of mixing Italian classic handmade shoes with old traditional hand stitchings on the sole and the melting concept. The final result is conceptual shoes... wearable and walkable. A combination of melted metals and Italian artisanal shoes!
