Miniature and joyful little sculpture on the body: Jewelry experiment artist Georgina Trevino

By
The abstract and interesting twisting line is a bitter and sweet in the midsummer. It is a graffiti that only you know in your notebook. It is a momentary image of the building's temporary mind. It is an intimate secret between a friend and himself. It is a Morse code to interpret your emotions. . This is Georgina Trevino, a Mexican American artist born in San Diego, Calif., if she only defines it with a jewelry designer, she is too narrow; what she feels in her work is not "design", which sounds meticulously planned. The beauty of the painting does not even need to discuss what beauty is not aesthetic, but the experimental and flowing spirit that can be seen. In the thousands of photos in the online world, her eyes were attracted by a pair of red rubber earrings she made, and she found this bold and avant-garde brand. The more in-depth browsing, the more I discovered that Georgina Trevino has already appeared in many magazines.中—— Her work always draws a finishing touch to make the whole picture and shape come alive and interesting. She has been looking for creators in different fields, working together to develop new and interesting ideas, to reach out to different media, and to expand beyond the comfort circle – just like the lines of her work. She kept "deformation". Playful and a bit of a dramatic style, Georgina Trevino's "experimental" philosophy continues to try and learn, which is the key to her creation and diversity. She graduated from San Diego State University with a bachelor's degree in jewellery and metalworking. She attended a year's jewellery workshop in Mexico City during her school hours. Her outgoing personality allowed her to work with friends and design studios in various fields, and also promoted her in 2010. In the year he founded his own brand of the same name - Georgina Trevino Contemporary Jewlery. Among them, "Contemporary" points out the immediacy and experimentation in her creation. The colors and structures such as toys and candy-like colors can smell the cultural background of her beautiful ink and the baptism of Bauhaus. The use of media has established a style that is unique to oneself. This time I contacted Georgina and talked about the creative process and inspiration of this girl with a joyful element. Although separated by a sea, her energy is not weakened, and the words and sentences give inspiration and motivation. . Georgina Trevino What kind of message does the brand try to convey? My brand is the product of all my interests, life and inspiration. In life, I always pay special attention to color, shape and architectural elements, which have inspired me to create. My work is like a small sculpture – a small sculpture formed for the body and space – with more purely artistic elements than ordinary jewelry, each representing a dialogue and a certain declaration. To express the meaning of it more completely, I have to use different materials to make them. . How is inspiration translated into real products and communicated? Inspiration comes from architecture, geometry, fashion, and anyone who performs contemporary creations. From each piece of work you can see that I try to combine colors with different media and techniques. Each piece is made by myself. This is the way I must and honestly express. I want to be a confident, forward-looking person who knows how to appreciate crafts, art, fashion and design; they care about the changes and renewals of things and resonate with my work. . Do you have a favorite creative medium? I think the main idea of ​​my brand is to constantly experiment with various media. Although silver and brass are used often, I am always looking for new materials and techniques, as well as more different combinations. I like cement soil and plastic very much, but recently I use soft clay. These elements give me more space to create, sometimes they are in the process of making experiments, and even develop unexpectedly beautiful results on their own, bringing me a richer experience. This is a dialogue with the work, and it is also the most meaningful aspect of the process behind each work. . What artist is the one that inspired you the most? There are so many people who have inspired me, but if I have to choose a person, I think it is Le Corbusier. This French-speaking Swiss master is not only a representative of modernism, but his work is deeply involved in many fields of art and literature. . The experiment makes your creation uninterrupted. What do you want to try next? Many of my works are actually very neutral, but most of them are more feminine. I am currently working on a special plan based on men. I am quite looking forward to it and will share it with you soon. In addition, I hope to use my own jewelry as an inspiration, and instead to make a large-scale sculpture creation, the medium will use iron and powder coating as a combination. . What is my most satisfying series so far? My favorite and most enjoyable series should be my most recent series, The New Collection. Among them, I combine many new technologies and materials, such as recycled plastics, cement soil, soft clay, hardware and plastic components, printed plates, brass, silver, kinetic energy technology and rich colors. Inspired by medieval furniture, Bauhaus geek, Kinetic Art and wild colours, I have a deep feeling for this collection because it is very close to my personality and the aesthetics I believe in. . What kind of faith do you hold on the road of creation? I believe that "failure" is a good thing, it makes us strong. I think that as long as people who are engaged in the field of creation, whether it is a good or bad experience, can make us a better artist, never give up easily! In addition, "rejected" is also a good thing. Although it is uncomfortable, it can always grow in constructive criticism. I have suffered many rejections, but that has driven me to think about my weaknesses. I can't be afraid to convey my thoughts and works, and always let others see myself, so I especially encourage you to strengthen your imagination through cooperation. And the exposure works can bring unexpected opportunities for cooperation, and sometimes even create with the artists they admire, it is a certain affirmation. . What are our expectations for the Georgina Trevino brand in the future? Remote planning is not limited to brands. My real goal is to create a platform that presents contemporary jewellery, with my own brand and platform to present a variety of contemporary jewellery. About a year ago, I started to create occasional jewelry workshops, so that interested people can learn to make things - I really enjoy doing things outside the brand. After that, we will find more space to run workshops, and we will also plan into an art gallery, so that other artists can share and explain contemporary art behavior. . Do you want to say something to readers who are also engaged in creation? We must venture bravely and must trust our instincts. "You have nothing to lose," and what I have learned in these years. The more you try, the more results you will get back to yourself. Georgina's works are almost unique. After all, the pieces are from her hands, and the enamel and soft pottery products are hard to copy, and this is the most touching part of her work. I admire people who love craftsmanship and are fully committed to creation, and appreciate her thinking back and forth between space and form, dialogue with her own background and vision; in the form of jewelry or in a more undefined form, to convey her own moment Sexual language. In the experiments, the vivid dynamic energy is continuously generated and spread to the people who are in contact with her. Let his works not only be "ornaments", but the playfulness and process of the work give the jewelry another experience of wearing and thinking on the body.

Weaving the boundary between reality and fantasy: the gorgeous adventure of Batice Rebel

By
Before introducing Batice Rebel, the designer's women's brand that I loved at first sight, I jumped into my mind with a few keywords of "surprise", "dream" and "courage". Its charm makes me the same in fashion design, heartbeat. Speeding up quickly. Looking at Batice Rebel's work is like looking at a piece of cloth collage, print, lace, check, girl's pink plus a handsome army green, maybe some more yellow; all materials, tailored configuration In the hands of designer San (Wu Peishan) - "more is more" is absolutely established in Batice Rebel. Combining Eastern and Western clothing does not sound like a new concept.

The most famous niche brand in the world: talking with LINDBERG designer Henrik Lindberg

By

"It's really hard to imagine that young people spend so much on their clothes, and every time they go out, they always have the same pair of casual glasses!" This is Henrik Lindberg, the founder of the Danish designer/Denmark brand LINDBERG. Unable to solve the problem. In his opinion, glasses are the same thing in front of the face, in front of the window of the soul, the first impression of others. Therefore, for Henrik Lindberg, the glasses are even the same "strength" design. Like many design brands, the optometrist Poul-Jørn Lindberg founded LINDBERG's original intention because he couldn't find comfortable glasses to wear, and wanted to do some light and perfect fit glasses. Now, the Danish brand that was born in 1986 has been handed over to his son Henrik Lindberg. LINDBERG is known for its top-notch production techniques, but in Henrik's own words, LINDBERG is "the most famous and unknown brand in the world of glasses." LINDBERG is not mass produced and many styles follow the principle of limited order. In his opinion, LINDBERG is a person who is passionate about design and pays attention to the wearing experience. They may prefer luxury high-end goods, but pay more attention to the philosophy behind a brand. "Even if you don't look at the technical details, you will be impressed by the entire design project." There is no "Scandinavian design." Before taking care of LINDBERG with his father, Henrik studied architecture in Denmark. "Denmark architecture schools don't just teach architecture, they also include many courses on design, learn how to think, and even how to subvert what you know." Learning the background of the building gives Henrik a system on how to design a custom solution. Sexual understanding. "Everyone has a different vision, but a good design must be sustainable." This is Henrik's definition of good design. LINDBERG's glasses are innovatively based on the ultra-lightweight material of titanium – the world's first eyewear brand that uses titanium. You can barely feel its weight and can easily wear it all day. And this "stealth" ability is not all from the choice of materials, the minimalist streamlined appearance is also an important factor. LINDBERG's glasses never even use screws. "Because the screws are always loose or lost, and extra weight is added, LINDBERG has never used a screw in its glasses for 30 years," Henrik said. The design has a signature "Nordic" design and represents the top design of Denmark, but Henrik does not agree with the topic of "Scandinavian design". “There is no Scandinavian design at all, and the design of each country is very different.” Sweden and Finland use large amounts of wood for large-scale wood, while Danish designs are marked by a mix of different materials. ...

From Bolivia to London, the human spirit of needle sewing: Beara Beara

By
At noon one day, because of the schoolwork, I had the opportunity to visit the British handmade leather goods Beara Beara. The alley near Kingscross in London, although less than five minutes from the station, is completely different from the noisy main street; the unique British shop in front of it has a blue-grey façade and a quiet temperament. The wood floor and display cabinets set off the brand's retro style just right, each piece of leather is like a story, especially taste. The founder of the brand, Jake Bullough, is tall and thin, wearing a burgundy sweater and welcoming us with a friendly smile. Photography/ Tiffany Yang. Photography/ Tiffany Yang. Photography/ Tiffany Yang. Photography/ Tiffany Yang. Photography/ Tiffany Yang. Jake was a travel writer before the establishment of Beara Beara, preparing for a new book in South America. Livia met Julia. Julia has many years of experience in making leather goods with her family. Their technology has been handed down from generation to generation and has a small leather storefront that sells simple bags and belts. However, Julia found that in order to maintain quality, they kept buying expensive materials, but they could not get enough sales to make up the cost, and they also faced difficulties in their livelihood. Therefore, Jake began to think of ways for them to make different suggestions on the structure, style and shape of the bag, hoping to improve the situation at the time. He said, "My initial thought was to change their leather bags through design, increase sales and improve their quality of life." Such cooperation gradually developed into the first series of brands; therefore, in 2012, Beara Beara Established on the Internet. It has been more than four years since the online store went all the way to the physical storefront. The workshop of Beara Beara in Bolivia has also been expanding; from the original small family to the current 80 people. "We saw changes in his life." Jake said, "The workshop employs a lot of single mothers, flexible working hours, so that they can take good care of the family while making money. The students are the same, without affecting Under the premise of the coursework, provide them with hours of work in the evenings and holidays.” After careful observation, it is not difficult to find that improving poverty and giving back to local life is one of the brand spirits that Jake and the team pay great attention to; under their efforts, they give more people to Bolivia. Employment opportunities and the ability to be self-sufficient. The head of the workshop, Julio Reas, also mentioned in the brand's documentary, "Now my children live better than me. This is the most important thing for me. This is the quality of life we ​​have never experienced before." ...

Like an elegant son-in-law: walking into the ATTIC small attic, the retro style of the 20s and 30s

By

Think of the ATTIC small attic, the mind of the European retro son-in-law will unconsciously emerge. For several years, from the beginning to pay attention to, buy to wear, whether in Australia or London, often surrounded by people around the ring, bracelets and praise. Yes, as long as it is a friend who loves retro style, he is always unconsciously attracted by the warm copper color. About half a year ago, I heard the news that the first formal studio of the small attic was finally opening. On the day of the visit, even though I had an unbeatable time difference just after returning to Taiwan, my heart was still looking forward to it. Entering the studio near Xuhui Middle School in New Taipei City – echoing the brand name, it seems like a pin-up of the beloved son-in-law, which is a classic and unique ATTIC small attic. In terms of creative materials, unlike the gold and silver that are common in the market, designer Vanessa chose a mix of brass and different materials; there is not much space, there are retro decorations and objects collected from various places, and works. Co-display; warm material flashes under the yellow light, quietly lying on the old wooden frame or metal plate, time seems to fall back, the gorgeous style and story of the last century is quietly fermented - whether it is brand Style, or the designer's own preferences, at a glance. . Let's talk to us first, and walk into the opportunity of jewelry design! At the age of 16, he began working in Jewelry Materials Co., from the beginning of pure labor, to the front line, and later entered the office as an art and procurement assistant, and finally contacted the work of jewelry research and development, related work experience for more than ten years. Because I like to draw, the working time is only because I feel that the work related to talent is interesting, and more importantly, I am close to home. In this way, the road to designing jewelry is wrong, and there is no connection with the school selection department. . Why is the brand named "Little Attic"? ATTIC has two founders, the other is my friend for more than ten years, and the production line responsible for it is cloth. We have a lot of common interests, so we can easily list a variety of things we like, such as: color, country, food, style. In the end, we found that the favorite buildings have lofts, and the style they like coincides with the classics, so it is called the ATTIC small attic. English has a classical meaning and also has the meaning of a loft. It's actually very simple, but it has a common meaning for us. . What is the most difficult part of metalworking and jewelry design? Regardless of the technical aspects, the difficulties in the general direction can be started from the style. Every creator wants to design his favorite work, unlimited budget, no need to worry about whether it is a niche or cater to the public. On the practical level, career is certainly not a dream. To be confident in your own style and vision, it is already quite difficult; sometimes, when performance is not so good, you must have the ability to believe in yourself. For jewel designers, creation or technology may not be difficult. The challenge may be to operate or fight a battle against yourself. . The design of the small attic is retro-style, so which era has the most influence on your creation? The luxury charm of the 20s and 30s is my favorite. Those pearls, rhinestones, feathers, sequins, and swaying little pendants always catch my eye. But at the same time, I am a person who likes the simple style of personality, so I can easily combine the two styles naturally - all of my favorite things, there is no contradiction. On the contrary, because I love it from the heart, I can Interpret the beauty without violating the peace. I also love the art deco style. The straight lines are quite appetizing for me, but I don't like the symmetrical elements. Still, the shadow of this style can be seen from some works. . What is the most prestigious vintage style in my heart? ...

Let the heart shout freely: JENN LEE X CHING DANCE

By

"If tomorrow is the end of the world, what do you want to do?" "I want to pee." Unexpectedly, it was probably a surprise for the show. The question about the end of the world should be the end of the choreographer who wants to leave it to the audience and can take it with him. I didn’t expect a sudden tender voice from the audience. However, this sounds a ridiculous answer, but it feels like I am facing the end of the day: Even if tomorrow is the last day of life, I probably want to live like the daily routine. Maybe, as long as you can draw a simple and full circle, after all, most of us can't draw a perfect circle. "Are you free?" ", created by Taiwanese fashion designer JENN LEE and the modern dance group CHING DANCE. In the typical performing arts, clothing is often a supporting role; however, this time, from the concept of fashion design, I thought about the dance (reviewing Hussein Chalayan's first modern dance "GRAVITY FATIGUE". The "freedom" in the proposition has always been a concept throughout JENN LEE design. From April last year, JENN LEE published the work on the streets of Taipei. This time, the dancers wore costumes and dances. This is not only about people's freedom, but also the freedom of "clothing." Breaking away from people's desks and window displays, entering life in different forms, and clothing has a new life. The costume design was inspired by the history of the Nazi concentration camp, where the dancers represented the role of the police and prisoners. Walking into the performance venue, hanging black veils and only flashlights, creating a tense atmosphere of search at the time: you don't want to go to the bright places, because there is no hope. The performance field is an open space, and the audience must follow the movement as the "place where the performance takes place". The police gave orders to the prisoners: "Pick up your feet! Put your feet down! Climb forward! Do not climb with your limbs!" implies the most powerful identity in the field. After several times of oppressed and inhumane calls, the light changed from a white light in a flashlight to a red light, and the prisoners began to escape from the direction of the audience. A large number of viewers are as obstacles as they escaped, and the audience feels their desire for freedom from their physical contact with the dancers. Even if it didn't escape in the end, the dangerous red light turned into a calming blue light—the dancers slowly walked towards the audience and embraced, leaving the message of “holding the life of every moment”. The choreographer cleverly handed the stage instructions to the police to help the dancers and the audience build the stage. However, the police's instructions were not precise enough. Although the audience understood the message that the "front row of spectators sat down" that he passed, it was a pity that the audience could not play a majestic tone. As a male dancer of the police, most of the performances are functional characters, which only push the plot forward. If there are more physical or dance performances, the dance will be more abundant. After the performance, JENN LEE mentioned that this creation wants to talk about "freedom" and "life". Such a huge proposition may be practiced in fashion design; however, in the dance, compared with "life", "freedom" obviously has more ink, and only the final ending will put a view on "life". In this way, the concept of "life" failed to stack accumulated emotions in the dance ahead, and the strength seemed to be thin. Recalling the dancers who were trapped in the gauze at the beginning of the show, they struggled and seemed to want to escape the freedom of restraint. I always feel that the metaphor of material properties is the most cruel - seemingly soft and breakthrough space, but in fact as tough as the wall. The dancers who covered the gauze were unclear. Every audience wore the mask they got before the performance. The scene was "a face": everyone was bound and could not have their own uniqueness - not free The result is self-evident. Then, ask yourself, "Are you free?" Perhaps in this mass-produced society, what you wear and what you have is difficult to be unique. "Being yourself" is a simple but difficult idea. You need to take the critique of the social framework and you need to endure the bet that is being bet. However, "What is freedom?", "I am free at the moment?" Even if everyone defines the freedom differently, or because the reality is constrained by the body, JENN LEE tries to express that the beauty of those unnamed still exists. Release the mind and let it call the name of freedom for you. JENN LEE defines the attitude of the work with "freedom" and uses the non-traditional methods such as collage and deconstruction to present the unique romance and incomprehension of modern women. Designer JENN LEE graduated from the University of the Arts in London, pursuing the variability of fashion, exploring the soul through travel and extending the development of self.

A fresh and full-fledged melody: New York designer brand AUrate

By

Pushing open the glass door, the retro vinyl record music is floating, the dim light is broadcasting a beautiful slide film - one stepping into the AUrate store on Madison Avenue, as if in the lively big apple New York, find A fresh but full of personality. Originally a business student at the Princeton Masters Program in the United States, Sophie Kahn and Bouchra Ezzahraui found each other's passion for fashion in just one year and decided to co-found the jewellery brand AUrate. "AU" - If you are familiar with chemistry, you will surely find that the brand is quoted from the golden symbol of the periodic table - this is the most common material for the brand; and "Rate" has a level of meaning, meaning that the two are designed for the hand. Quality persists. Since the opening of the brand two years ago, AUrate has successfully attracted attention in the jewelry/accessory design market. The understated classic Understated Series, the minimalist Core Series, and the avant-garde modern Statement Series, the three main styles of AUrate, show three distinct styles, like a trio of music, intertwined with fascinating beautiful movements. Of course, in addition to the ingenious design, AUrate also has a quality. From the exquisite 14 and 18K gold and diamonds to the rare red and gold-plated gold, it is the material and skill of the brand. Sophie and Bouchra believe that a beautifully textured jewel can not only add extra points to the appearance, but also make the wearer more confident and bright from the inside out. In the initial preparation period, although both of them preferred modern minimalist modern style, Sophie and Bouchra did not know which field to develop at first; after several rounds of rounds and field trips, they found that the American fashion market was many At the level, it has actually reached saturation. On the contrary, jewelry and jewelry still have a very rich space for development and change. Speaking to us here, Sophie takes the New York market as an example. "In the Soho area of ​​New York, mid-priced clothing is everywhere; but in contrast, the jewelry brand seems to be missing. So, we decided to fill the market. Blank." AUrate from New York, of course, New York women became their source of inspiration, Sophie and Bouchra are looking at the different life styles of New York women to think about. For example, a simple style ring is suitable for office workers who are nine to five, simple but not boring, even if you go to drink after work, you don't have to change it. Or, the easy and fun necklace bracelet is the first choice for a small gathering with friends on weekends. Of course, inspiration can come from any part of life – an art exhibition inspired, or a midnight movie, which was once the predecessor of many designs of the brand. Just like the popular long-sleeve earrings and necklaces in AUrate's work, Sophie and Bouchra, together with the opera "Madame Butterfly", were attracted by their beautiful scenes to develop this favorite work. When visiting AUrate's store on Madison Avenue, it was unexpectedly found that the price was much more intimate than the jewelry of similar quality. Originally born in business school...

Break your horizons! Percy Lau, designer for the eyes

By

Graduated from Percy Lau, the Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, the original ambition was to become a fashion designer; however, her mentor explored her talent for accessory design and encouraged her to focus on the design of accessories. In 2013, Percy established the eponymous brand “Percy Lau”. Inspired by God's creation and nature, Percy's savvy design shows her strong interest in scientific experiments and philosophical speculation. She never defines what accessories are. She prefers to think about the relationship and interaction between people and accessories through design. Glasses are Percy Lau's flagship work, bold and avant-garde, never following the rules. "Until now, I don't think I'm doing "eyeglasses". I'm doing accessories for my eyes. I use natural science elements in my design, and I hope that fashion lovers can re-examine themselves, understand their own attributes, and build their own. The real style," Percy said. In 2013, Percy based on the series of "eyes", through the theme of materials such as transparent resin, to explore whether people see it is true, this series was shortlisted for the International Talent Support competition, and became the youngest winner of the YKK Awards. (Reviewed by YKK Creative Director). The SS 2015 series, with the theme of "human" inspired by "eyes", the whole series is in the form of cell division. Percy aims to hope that people can better understand the functions of human beings, including evolutionary processes and body structures. The SS 2016 series draws inspiration from Japanese Harajuku culture. Percy uses this almost 20-year-old color contact lens element on lenses, such as cat eyes, compound eyes, lizard eyes, and human eyes, which are very bold and jump. What makes her curious is that when our window of the soul is covered and our appearance is changed, are we better integrated or more prominent in the crowd? . I heard that before you studied the design of accessories, you were studying science-related fields. How did this interdisciplinary change happen? At the time of the rebellious period, I chose to design to avoid the boring laboratory life. . What is the interaction between the two professions? Can you explain the combination of the works and how do the two react chemically in your work? ...

Nostalgic self to the youth generation: Japanese fashion designer KOTOHA YOKOZAWA

By

If you remember correctly, there was a course in the National Home Economics textbook of my time. The main purpose was to teach students how to perform properly. The most impressive one was the two simple wearing principles. The color of the clothing can't be more than three" and "the upper body is wearing a fancy style, and the lower body should be matched with the color of the clothing." This made me very eager to take the day when I was in elementary school. I couldn't help but have a lot of doubts in my heart—but when I was facing the exam, I still wrote the standard answer to the textbook on the examination paper and continued to be my good student. When I grow up, I gradually understand that in the face of this world, you must not accept it in full, or stop curiosity and suspicion. Sometimes, you even have to doubt yourself—suspicion whether you have been entangled in school education and social values, and even killed. Have their own potential possibilities. "Don't consider that this is for people to wear.", "I want to think about what kind of people I want to wear." But the first lesson, two ESMOD (French high-end fashion art school) Tokyo school The newly appointed teacher of the district, Mr. Yamagata (writtenafterwards designer) and Mr. Sanshiro (MIKIO SAKABE designer), immediately opened the costume designer Yokota Yokozawa, who had already entered the final academic year. I feel awkward and feel the limitations of my past creative thinking. Recalling the last year of ESMOD, Yokozawa said: "Before this class, I didn't even think about these problems for a centimeter. Then I started to explore until I was wearing a worn second-hand T. When the shirt is paired with denim shorts, it instantly realizes "Ah~ It should be like this!" If you make it with material and close-up styles that you usually wear, I think it might be closer to people and show vitality. At the time, there was still one thing that was going on at the same time—excavating myself. I began to look back at the previous photos, one of which was a family photo more than a decade ago. Dad wore a sports shirt with YAMAHA on the chest, with very tight snowflakes. I came to participate in the activities of my school. I felt very embarrassed at the time, but now I feel like it is quite cute. I immediately called home and said, "I want to wear that sports shirt, help me send it~" It has been lost. It was very popular when I was just wearing a sports shirt. I wanted to wear it myself, so I decided to do it. As a result, the sports shirt became the main hit. After the graduation production, the things I am wearing now and the things I want to wear have become the main axis of my design.” In 2013, Yokozawa’s graduation production at ESMOD quickly set off a topic; In the month, he also held a solo exhibition at Gallery 110 in Kyoto. After graduating, through the design activities of a large-scale garment company, she established the eponymous brand kotohayokozawa in 2015, and was promoted by the school teacher of the same year.
