who is Jakob Kudsk Steensen and what is your vision?

Yeah, my name is Jakob Kudsk Steensen, I’m an artist. I'm from Denmark, but for the past ten years I worked in New York, and I recently moved to Berlin. In my practice, I work a lot with video game technologies, I think a lot about how to use them beyond the usual vernacular or video games. Which is very aim and level based and kind of follows like a more rational experience and design, where you have to touch or interact with things very one

Maya Golyshkina | Identity, Body Confidence, And Self Expression

Fair enough! What is your design process usually like? Or is it constantly changing?

Usually, I draw something on my phone or piece of paper, whatever comes to hand. I also outline what materials I need for and the project in my head. This is how I start with my ideas.

Obviously, every process is different, but yours sounds intricate and interesting. When it comes to designing your work what is your favourite part? What is your favourite thing about the process of design itself?

I think the m

Beatrice Oettinger | Nature, The Body, And Endless Wandering

Yeah, I completely get what you mean. It sounds beautiful. I mean, I grew up in a city, so it's hard for me to kind of imagine that. But I've been in nature and it's just magical. It doesn't compare to anything else in the whole world. I completely agree. If you had one word to describe your designs, what would it be? And why?

Ah, I think the word joy? Yes, the word is joy. I think. I have no other word for that. It's joy. What is joy? Joy is something that you lose your frontier, that you get

It is clear to see why the leather is popular: It is fast-growing and requires little

Has Sustainability Become A Gimmick? | Luxiders Magazine

Sustainability has become an inaccessible lifestyle for many. The expectations of how to perform sustainability correctly: the diet, where you shop, what energy you use. It is an expensive expectation. Many sustainable clothing brands can be much more expensive than their fast fashion competitors. This is because fast fashion cuts costs by not paying their workers an adequate wage. Yet, we cannot ignore that many families may not be able to afford the more sustainable option.

SISTERHOOD Fashion Editorial shot by Ana Coello

Is a social, ethical and emotional pact build between women. Female empowerment is only possible if we create strong alliances between us, treating us as sisters and not as enemies.

This editorial is a tribute to friendship and complicity among women, both between models and between the team.

“We’re connected, as women. It’s like a spiderweb. If one part of that web vibrates, if there’s trouble, we all know it, but most of the time we’re just too scared, or selfish, or insecure to help. But if

Susan Fang X UGG Collaboration Works To Unlock Our Playful Side

The ‘SUSAN FANG x UGG’ collaboration floated onto the runway at SUSAN FANG’s AW23 Shanghai show. The dreamy collection consists of two shoe designs, both created with Fang’s customary airy quality. In the collection, Fang’s platform shoes are vibrant and whimsical, a perfect accessory for the AW23 runway show. Feminine colours evoke a fresh, bold look, which strive away from her more delicate shoe designs. However, the romantic quality of her work is still found in the delicate flowers on each s

To shave or not to shave: why the only answer is your own

“To shave or not to shave?”: the question has been asked again and again in recent years. The conversation around body hair goes back centuries. It has been a taboo throughout time; influencing gender dynamics, symbolizing class, and defining notions of femininity and attractiveness. However, in its most recent evolution, body hair is being embraced by a growing number of young women who are turning a source of societal shame into a sign of personal strength.

Psychology of underwear: what does your lingerie say about you?

Have you ever heard of psychology of underwear? Clothing is often viewed as an extension of oneself, an outward display, or sometimes private expression of our identity. Whether we love thongs, or cotton satin underwear, we all have certain lingerie we gravitate towards, and this in turn sends a message to those we interact with.We choose clothes to protect us from the elements, to make our activities safer, or to make a statement about who we are. While social identity is directed towards an ex

How has the thong been re-centred inside the female gaze?

How has Chité re-centred the thong into the female gaze? For far too long, lingerie was designed and marketed through the male gaze. Styles for women seem stuck in the past and made with the male gaze in mind – think lacy, racy thongs or exaggerated push up bras. Women’s boxers are common but designs often lean towards resembling more traditionally ‘masculine’ underwear – there remains a tension between comfort and femininity. At Chité Milano, we’re refocusing female lingerie through the female
