For her collaboration with digital art publication POSTmatter, Maiko Takeda's (June, 2014) took her Atmospheric Reentry collection and applied fluorescent pigments to the translucent plastic spikes, combining sprayed color gradiens with flecks of paint. Flickering between light and dark, the video shows off the neckpieces under UV light. To quote the artist, "It almost looked like fluorescent jellyfish in water."

New Zealand's Kelly Thompson has made a few appearances on our site, but when we were looking back through the Purple Book, we caught wind of Kelly again and really enjoyed her slightly erotic, fashion-eque illustrations and fine art work. She was born in Rotorua, New Zealand and lived in Wellington for 10 years before moving to Melbourne where she is currently based.

Well, well, this is a bit fun. Erotic-themed Baron Magazine had photographers Blommers & Schum do a bit of mirror imaging with males and females for this really interesting and mindbending shoot. Girls who do boys like their girls... oh you get it.

Back really long ago, 2013 that is, famed international fashion house Comme des Garcons (who have probably the best store designs of anyone in fashion) teamed up with Nobrow and manga star Katsuhiro Otomo, author of "Akira." Even better, CDG asked Nobrow to mash Otomo's work with other Nobrow artists, creating a comic/manga collage effect that existed on the CDG site. Basically, it looked rad, and we want to show you.

Supreme always has a great art collaboration each season, and we thought that the HR Giger deck and jacket that was announced last month was solid enough.

The collection features a skate deck design, hoodie, jacket, and t-shirts in multiple colorways. Go get it starting on September 18.

We love these large-scale charcoal illustrations by Rotterdam, Netherlands-based artist Anouk Griffioen. A connection with fashion can be seen in her work through the clothing and the models' faces and bodies. This influence saw a turning point when she collaborated with fashion photographer Anne Marieke van Drimmelen. Ever since Anouk has seen fashion play a more visible role in her art.
