Nicole Bridger x Zoë Pawlak Create Wearable Art

Collaborations are all the rage this summer, but if Mara Hoffman x Havaianas isn’t quite your thing, you may be interested in something special a little closer to home.

Vancouver based Nicole Bridger, best known for her dynamic fashion line of ethical materials, has recently partnered with local artist Zoë Pawlak to create five custom fabrics for her spring/summer collection, which she dubs “Ready for Love.” Fuchsia pink, electric blue and vibrant chartreuse tones dominate the line, consisting of a silk crepe kimono Jacket, pink silk shorts, attention-grabbing joggers, a blue button-front dress and the dramatic floor-length silk “Inspire” dress fit for any summer romance.

There are around 55 pieces in all, each providing an effective and beautiful canvas for Pawlak’s striking paintings, the portions of which have been enlarged for a bold look. The full collection was showcased earlier this May in an East Vancouver soiree, but thankfully we can snap up all the pieces online at Nicole Bridger’s store (ranging from $142 to $234). I simply adore all the loosey-goosey designs, but feel like this Samantha Dress really speaks to me.

Georgia May Jagger is Unrecognizable on Vogue Japan’s July Cover (Forum Buzz)

Georgia May Jagger is Vogue Japan's latest cover girl. Photographed by Willy Vanderperre, the British model is seen with poker straight hair, bleached eyebrows and minimal makeup for the July 2014 cover shot. Japanese Vogue's covers usually work for me, but there's something slightly off about this. It's lifeless, considering the cover suggests this is a body special, but our forum members are picking up on something else…

"All this trouble to make her look like Lara … why not just get the original?" questioned Marc10. The Lara Stone comparisons started to flood in thick and heavy within minutes of the cover being posted.

"It's the best she's looked BECAUSE she looks like Lara," commented anlabe32.

HeatherAnne was another member who failed to recognize Georgia at first: "I wouldn't have even guessed this was Georgia, it looks nothing like her."

"Georgia might look like Lara, but IMO It's still a nice cover!" enthused fashionlover2001.

Kendall Jenner Makes Surprise Appearance Inside Vogue Paris June/July Issue

Just a few months ago she was walking the runway for Chanel, Givenchy, Giles and Marc Jacobs during Fashion Week, now Kendall Jenner is making a surprise appearance inside the June / July 2014 issue of French Vogue. The reality star turned high-fashion model is seen posing alongside a number of other vacant girls whilst being photographed by Patrick Demarchelier. Stylist to the shoot, Katie Grand, was no doubt the instigator of Jenner's appearance. Kendall is seen wearing various outfits from Chanel and Prada (which I think she looks fantastic in!).

Are you at all surprised? I thought it would be interesting to see which editor or publication would be the first to feature the 18-year-old beauty, after getting a seal of approval from the likes of designers Karl Lagerfeld and Riccardo Tisci. However, this isn't exactly Kendall's first high-fashion print gig; Jenner was photographed by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott for the March 2014 issue of W magazine.

Pharrell’s New Art Show Aims to Celebrate Women, Includes Graphic Work by Terry Richardson

Pharrell's new art show, GIRLS — which was named after his recently released album — has just opened at the Galerie Perrotin in Paris.

The exhibition aims to "celebrate women who are above all free, liberated by artists and their boundless, unfettered imagination" and includes several pieces of provocative feminist art which examine gender roles from a critical perspective, by artists such as Cindy Sherman, Marina Abramović, Yoko Ono and Sophie Calle.

However, as Sarah Moroz for The Guardian writes, the show is made "heartbreaking and absurd" by the inclusion of a photograph by Terry Richardson: "The image is a slice of girl shown from belly button to upper thigh, a chocolate heart dangling in front of her vagina with the words 'Eat Me' scrawled in pink. Even if one were to repress the allegations that the photographer is a loathsome sexual predator, the image is a baffling inclusion," she writes. 

[To be clear: although several women have come forward with allegations about Richardson's inappropriate and exploitative working methods, the photographer has never been charged.]

"[Richardson] has his own expression," Pharrell told The Guardian's Moroz when she confronted him. "What we were trying to accomplish with this project was to house many different facets of women. This was meant to be a democracy, where people could contribute their views as long as we didn't see it as being outside of what we were trying to do … We want people to talk about these issues; we want to spark conversation… Just because you're a good girl doesn't mean you don't have naughty thoughts."

Emmanuel Perrotin, the gallerist who co-curated the show later approached Moroz to tell her that the accusations against Richardson were all false. He also added: "I saw [Terry Richardson] on many occasions doing photoshoots, and it's a real big party all together; I promise you the woman part of the photoshoot doesn't look a victim of anything."

People have the right to make and display any work of art, but including a piece by Richardson in an art show explicitly dedicated to women's liberation, without being aware of the implications, is an embarrassment — and it raises serious questions about Pharrell and Perrotin's authority and judgment as curators.
