When F is for Fashion, in Maiko Takeda’s atelier, it’s not necessarily born of function. These are not logos branded on a five-panel cap. Form, fluidity and fantasy expand the narrow confines of the genre for this young artist who grew up in Tokyo and now designs and hangs her hats in London.

In addition to luxurious illustrations and advanced Constructivist models, the magazine offered an overview of current European trends, in which the Soviet control system saw “vestiges of capitalism.” The fashion magazine’s first issue was its last. If not for the excesses of Soviet censorship, Russia would now have its own Vogue and Harpers Bazaar all rolled into one.

'Through my work I continually aim to create leather objects which are both visually captivating and technically challenging.

Romain Laurent has always been a favorite on the site for his ability to make believe in natural, reality-based situations. His urban surfers are a crowd favorite.

We all see the world through a slightly different lens, and a good photograph, painting, movie, or song beckons us to see, hear, and maybe even feel, in a fresh way. Among other things, Amanda Dee Haynes sees patterns. And she has found a way to share, or perhaps just remind us of that perspective in a very literal sense, by drawing those patterns and details on photographs: snapshots of what someone else sees. This led to drawing patterns on what someone else wears, sharing her subconscious in a tactile and relatable fashion.

What you are looking at is wearable, psychedelic, bugged out fashion. Craig Green takes art and fashion to very interesting levels, and his Spring Summer 2014 line pushes psychedelia, costume, superheroes, Zorro, and cinema into a mix of futuristic wardrobes and high fashion... the presentation is flawless!

Japanese shoe designer Masaya Kushino's latest collection, "Bird-Witched" is inspired by Jakuchu Ito, "a legendary painter who fourished uring the Edo period in the 18th century. He depicted real life animals such as birds, tigers, and elphants in a really ingenious way, tinged wit ha bit of insanity." Kushino considers shoes "just as visually stimulating as sculpture or any other three-dimensional art piece, but they also fundamentally have to be wearable....
