Fashion Brand KOFTA Forms Leather Into Gothic Anatomy Inspired Bags

Konstantin KoftaKonstantin KoftaKonstantin Kofta   Konstantin Kofta

KOFTA is the brain child of Kiev based designer Konstantin Kofta. In his collections Hug, Born, Roots, he experiments with leather manipulation to produce surrealistic and elegant garments, accessories and wearable items. His pieces imitate body parts and look like they are extensions of the person wearing them. Including backpacks that mimic torsos, bags with raised vertebrae, straps with hands attached ‘holding’ onto the wearer’s shoulders, and shoes that look like feet, Kofta’s designs are delicately gothic. He describes his inspiration for the Hug collection further:

From birth, we try to stand up and take our first steps. We yearn to touch and be touched and to feel sensations for the first time. We can perceive objects with an unclogged consciousness. Pure perception without comparison. We know nothing other than that which we can see and feel… Spirit does not have form, but some forms can have spirit, vibration does not have a color but color can have vibration, mood does not have a texture, but textures can have a mood. In this collection we focus for the first time more on feelings than just on physical forms and we have created forms, colors and textures according to these sensations… (Source)

Designing with a emphasis on sensuality, Kofta loves to tease out an emotional response to his designs. He combines the unintentional and unexpected to produce durable, unique and wearable pieces of art. Kofta designs with the intention of adding unusual components to a person’s lifestyle, not just their wardrobe, and I would say his pieces achieve a lot more than that.

Sponsored Post: Respect. And G-Shock Present- Kareem Black “Picture Perfectionist”

KareemBlack

G-Shock and RESPECT. magazine have teamed up to showcase the work of some top, emerging art makers from across a variety of disciplines. The video series interviews four innovators: artist/sculptor Christophe Roberts, industrial designers Aaron Stathum and Eliot Coven and photographer Kareem Black. These individuals are exploring their own imaginations and finding new ways to their visions to life through their respective art forms. From sculpture, to photography to developing concepts for industrial design and products that improve our every day lives.

First up is Kareem Black, a Philly-bred photographer who burst onto the New York City photography scene at the tender age of 18. Kareem has shot everyone from Nas to Jenna Jameson and Leonardo DiCaprio in between. He has a gift for creating both bright, saturated images that capture the pop-culture personas of the people he’s shooting, and timeless, moving images that get to the very core and soul of his subject. No matter what the subject, setting or the mood you know that Kareem will deliver a stunning image that sends a clear message.

His unique perspective through the camera lens breathes life into his subjects, objects and surroundings. If a picture is worth a thousand words, Kareem’s pictures are worth millions.

Emma Mcnally’s Abstract Map Drawings

 

London based artist Emma Mcnally makes abstract graphite drawings that look like city grids and star maps. But this description doesn’t come close to doing them justice. Usually large in scale, the drawings emit a wizened, emotive quality. Somehow, each miniscule mark of graphite takes on endless personality. In the end, the works are just as effective as maps of life’s random chaos as they are as any type of reference to formal cartography.  (via)

Marie Blanchard

French artist Marie Blanchard draws nice illustrations with what appear to be markers (I can’t tell as the site is in French). I like how minimal they are; she really explores just how little can be in an illustration and still have it be a legitimate piece. She also runs a book imprint called Shining Books, which recently published her latest book, entitled Echoes.

Awesome Video Of The Day: Death In Dialogue

Skyler Buffmyer is a young filmmaker who makes simple shorts that have a big impact. Her diary short Death In Dialogue is about as basic as it gets but packs a big punch. Her work is playful, sincere, and doesn’t take itself too seriously. We should all keep an eye on her. I’m sure she will go on to big things.

Watch Death In Dialogue and her short documentary Phone Sex after the jump.
