Selfridges Skatepark by Brinkworth

Brinkworth proved they can design a great skatepark with Baysixty6. Selfridges approached them to build another one in their Car-park sponsored by HTC.

The skatepark is part of Selfridges Board Games Campaign and is fully functional. Want to have a crack yourself? Go down to Selfridges and you can rent a skateboard or take part in the classes they organise, more information here.

Fashion Shows: The Odd and the Beautiful Part 1.

Aah fashion season. The time of the year London, Milan, New York and Paris gets taken over by the beautiful, the jet set, and the weird. The concept of a fashion show is pretty straight forward: One designer showcases his/her new collection on around 10 models in a very fast pace in a pale environment.

Luckily some brands don’t operate to this standard and always push out the boat at these bi-annual event making their show the one to remember.

Below is just a snap shot of fashion shows that are remembered for their beauty or for its weirdness..

Moncler Grenoble Fall / Winter mens 2014. If robots take over the world one day, this is how I imagine their fashion shows would be.

Peter Pilotto for target presentation by studio Betak. Known for their incredible design and structures they didn’t let anyone down with this presentation.

Dimensional paintings by Adam Neate

Some of you might remember the guy who left his art in the street. His name is Adam Neate and he didn’t stop producing art after this. He has since been working on Dimensional paintings. Using different materials and offsetting them against each other he creates abstract self portraits. The result is quite stunning. Read the full bio about the paintings below:

“Adam Neate is a self taught British artist who began by leaving his paintings, on cardboard, on the streets of London and now has work in collections in 29 countries around the world.

A fearless painter, he has developed his own language of Dimensional Painting ; in Neate’s most recent work, space itself has become a medium, with the viewer activating their own ‘viewing space’ by moving and changing their vantage point, in order to get the full multi-dimensional effect.”
