Working on this blog for over a month has been more fun than I ever expected, and also more difficult. Feelings of incompetence and self-doubt rise and fall with the line of the graph representing the daily number of visitors. So I’m taking a vacation for a few days to recuperate, but I will be back stronger and better. See you soon? Keren

This is a very special magazine, where every issue is curated by another fashion designer, from start to end. Previous issues were edited by Maison Martin Margiela, Riccardo Tisci and Yohji Yamamoto, to name a few. It’s really something different: whimsical, experimental and over all much more interesting than your average ‘art meets fashion’ magazine (except for the obligatory Terry Richardson shoot). I got the issue curated by Jun Takahashi, a Japanese fashion designer. You can view the entire issue here or watch it flipped here.
For a visit to the bank today, I wanted to wear something that will make me look confident in that place, but also a little artistic, as if to mock the financial order :) (I’ll keep using stupid smileys until I’m sure my dry humor gets through). Click the image to see it straight and big enough to read.

Yesterday was a very productive day. I finished a lot of things even before they were due ,and that doesn’t happen a lot! And today is also nice, I can rest a little bit and the weather is beautiful. One of the things I finished yesterday was this work ↑ for Skin Project. It’s a collaborative project created by Hernan Paganini (wrote about him here) who was kind enough to invite me to participate. Every artist has to respond to the work of the previous person, thus forming what Hernan calls “an emotional sentence”. The image on the left is what I got and on the right is my response.
I wanted to write something about the sad death of Alexander McQueen, but I’ll refer you to the more capable hands of Cathy Horyn from the NY Times.
(I didn’t succeed in locating the collection this sweater is from, but I think it may be Alexander McQueen fall/winter ’08)
