While everybody else was checking up the multiple exhibition venues around the Salone del Mobile, I jumped over to Maison Martin Margiela Milano to discover French artist Cédric Bernadotte’s installation of “Residual Spaces”, showcasing furniture and objects, wrapped in industrial cellophane. Really WOOOW!
It it for sure not only us, knowing industrial designer Tom Dixon for his conceptual aesthetics, be it in terms of lighing design or furniture. Right now, during the Salone del Mobile in Milan, he is giving a preview on his latest design project, this time more related to apparel than to furniture. Together with Adidas, Dixon is presenting his visions for stylish clothes, combining the dimensions of functionality and fashionability.
What I can say is I totally loved his parka turning easily into a sleeping bag, the totally cozy hoodies that can be zipped into small space-saving bags (so great for non-stop travelling people) and a rather stunning five-in-one overall piece, being a coat, jacket, pant, skirt and shorts in one. Not easy to imagine, right?!
It is not only apparel Dixon put his creative perspective into – in his colab with Adidas, one could find milti-functional accessories such as backpacks, cases or even really stunning shoes.
If you are in town, you should definitely check out the installation at MOST and check out some of the pieces I found really cool.

Everybody is obsessed with Givenchy – apparently my buddies at Barneys too. Take a look at the amazing video they directed, featuring the actual Spring-Summer 2013 collection of Givenchy and get an idea how super-human Riccardo Tisci sees men this season.
I would be more than happy to see more men dress like that…

Now have alook at the pieces and start matching them with your jeans.
