One of our favorite interviews from this past year was our conversation with Harmony Korine, featured in our July issue in conjunction with his work on the yet-to-be-seen Rebel project. Korine teamed up with fashion line Proenza Schouler twice over the past two years on short films, the latter being Snowballs that premiered at Paris Fashion Week in late September. Watch and be slightly uncomfortable after the jump . . .

James Jean has had a very busy year (solo show at Martha Otero, video with Juxtapoz, monograph Rebus being released) but something a bit unexpected opened up: Jean began developing a line of fine jewelry, scarves, and objects with support from my friends in Japan that has culminated in a new webstore of Jean products, OVMLove.com.

Some want their high-end fashion made from beautiful fabrics and unique construction, so we say why not go with some vegetable fashion from Fulvio Bonavia. An artichoke hat and a broccoli handbag is unique enough for us.

A pretty clever series of designer gas masks by designer and conceptual artist, Diddo. A nice ode to consumerism and the idea of brands suffocating our daily lifes, and the subversive similarities between the fashion world and the Military Industrial Complex.

What a simple but effective series by artist and photographer, Bec Wonders. As she puts it, "I'm combining my paintings with my photographs and experimenting around this method." We like the results. A bit of some post-human sort of look going on here...
