Anna Sui Spring Summer 2018

Comments from Ann Sui.

A Gathering of Tribes…my show begins in the dim blue light of dawn, with a mysterious procession of an enigmatic counterculture love cult emerging from the mist, on their way to some sort of ecstatic Be-In Festival…“bring photos of personal saints and incense, candles, banners, flags, feathers, flutes, drums, gongs, chimes, cymbals, symbols, costumes, joy…”

For Spring 2018, I was inspired by several noteworthy recent exhibitions. I saw “The Summer of Love Experience” at the de Young Museum in San Francisco, and “Pink Floyd: Their Mortal Remains”, plus “You Say You Want a Revolution? Records and Rebels 1966-1970” (both at the Victoria & Albert Museum), and the dazzling “Alma-Tadema: At Home in Antiquity” show at the Leighton House, in London…

True Religion Void Tactics

True Religion announces the launch of "VOID TACTICS," on January 24, a limited-edition capsule collection exclusively available on MATCHESFASHION.COM for a limited time. The Berlin-based think tank Nemesis, founded by K-HOLE's Emily Segal and Amnesia Scanner's Martti Kalliala, and photographer Rory Van Milligen were tapped for the collection's campaign to depict 'the void' - a homage to anonymous youth. In celebration of the collection, GRM Daily is hosting a live show of musical talent that embraces both True Religion and GRM Daily's ­­­­dynamic fanbase.

True Religion Brand
The 15-piece collection includes an assortment of T-shirts, acid washed denim, hoodies and sweatpants in treated jersey, with contrast stitching details and custom graphics, in a monochromatic palette that reflects a throwback to the original ethos and relentless energy of the True Religion brand - refined (and distorted) for a new audience. A key graphic defaces True Religion's iconic Buddha print with a spliced-out strip that accommodates the 'roadman' bag strap. The capsule pays tribute to a new generation of youth that has already incorporated the True Religion brand into an emergent global aesthetic.

The Nemesis campaign shoot took place in an unnamed London shopping district and focuses on the concept of HYPERSTITION and maps the architecture of global hype - how a phenomenon emerges, the uniform anonymity of the capsule, and the underlying logic that ignited it. As source material, Nemesis drew on the Cybernetic Culture Research Unit's texts from the 1990s, as well as Rem Koolhaas's Strategies of the Void.

How to Pick the Proper Dress Shirt

Picking the proper men's dress shirt is not always an easy task.  In addition to figuring out the proper size, many other choices need to be made as well.
Image Source Bloomingdale's:  Apparel Search suggests that you shop at Bloomindale's for Classic Fit Dress Shirts and more.
1) Figure out your size.  Sleeve length and neck measurements are critical.  You also want to ask the retailer regarding their fit options such as slim fit, classic fit, regular fit, loose fit, etc.  Obviously, if you are on the larger side, check on big & tall sizes.

2) Figure out which fiber you prefer.  Do you enjoy 100% cotton, 100% polyester, a blend, or an entirely different fiber such as silk, rayon, etc.  Their is definitely a difference between natural and man-made fibers.  Each have advantages and disadvantages.  I am not telling you how to live your life, but my suggestion is typically 100% cotton.  Breathable, comfortable, and for the most part relatively durable.
