The good , the bad, and the ugly…
A few looks that captured our attention for Spring/Summer 2014, from a huge array in our library.
Whether it may be conceptual art, wearable or non wearable, there's always something for the right mood and the right occasion.
London as a melting pot for designers and stylists world wide always deliver dozes to relieve boredom and create a bit of excitement and fantasy. Indoors in the clubs, or outdoors in the streets…
We prefer not to mention any names and leave it for you to constructively criticise or appreciate…
Have FUN!

'Sensation Parisienne' SS14

Images by JEJ for FACADES


Paris womenswear follows a certain design code, a norm which may be quite old school and should mainly spell chic. As Coco Channel may have originally revolutionised and set the level of Parisian style, both non French & French fashion designers based in the capital persevere to set the standards. They carry on with such a sensibility in tradition but nevertheless adheres to modernity.
We present a selection of looks for you to choose from this season...

23 images shot by JEJ for FACADES


Delhi based Manish Arora vividly brings to us the colours of India for this season. Prolific ideas on product development from little trinkets, to wallets, hand bags, chunky jewelry, cups and saucers, dresses in beads & chains, to ipad & iphone case & holders.
And moreover, 'spiritua toys' hand painted by local artisans, taking 5-7 days to finish 1 medium size idol.
A fusion of Art & Culture with Fashion. Yet again, well done to you Manish Arora.

New Art From Africa And Latin America @ Saatchi

Taking its title from the prehistoric landmass that conjoined Africa and Latin America, this major survey reunites the two former sister continents by bringing together the work of 16 of their contemporary artists.
The exhibition celebrates and explores the parallels between their distinctly diverse cultures and creative practices, as they begin to receive recognition in the increasingly globalised art world.
In Europe and the USA, art has typically advanced through a constant renewal of innovative ideas and movements. We are now experiencing an important global shift as artists seek to explore new art in regions outside their immediate geographical and historic context for inspiration.
The desire by artists and their audiences to discover fresh influences from a broader body of work has inspired the recent preoccupation of museums to broaden their Eurocentric collections.
Against this backdrop, the artists in Pangaea: New Art From Africa And Latin America, respond to present day complexities in diverse and innovative ways. Years of colonial rule, rapid urban expansion, migration and political and economic unrest remain subjects for many of the artists whose reflections on the richness of their environment translate into an intense visual experience.
Rafael Gómezbarros, Casa Tomada, 2013
Rafael Gómezbarros’ Casa Tomada has taken over the facade of numerous national monuments. The giant ants address issues of diaspora and internal displacement suffered in Colombia for several decades due to the armed conflict wreaking havoc on the country.
Vincent Michea’s bold paintings are inspired by the architecture and population of his hometown Dakar, Senegal’s largest city with a constantly changing landscape.
Antonio Malta Campos’ bold paintings emerge from a single pattern that organically grows over time and gives way to recognisable forms and a perceived narrative.
Aboudia’s vast canvases are occupied by a multitude of characters displaying menacing weapons, and are a record of the sudden escalation of violence following electoral chaos in the city of Abidjan in 2011.
While a few artists from Africa and Latin America have gained international acclaim, a vast number remain relatively unknown. The full scope of work on display in this exhibition, which includes new painting, photography, installation and sculpture, encapsulates this sense of diversity – a bubbling energy surfacing in the two great continents that were once Pangaea.
Pangaea: New Art From Africa and Latin America features work by Aboudia, Leonce Agbodjélou, Fredy Alzate, Antonio Malta Campos, Rafael Gómezbarros, David Koloane, José Lerma, Mário Macilau, Ibrahim Mahama, Dillon Marsh, Jose Carlos Martinat, Vincent Michea, Oscar Murillo, Alejandra Prieto Boris Nzebo, Christian Rosa.
